About Clinton

I've been teaching and writing for several years. I presently teach in the Nashville public Schools: Middle School and High school. I've taught at hundreds of schools in the Metro Nashville area and met some amazing students. I'm constantly learning. I enjoy teaching English and Writing. I'm the author of several books including the following genres: biographical, religious, theology, philosophy, entertainment and others. I've helped hundreds of students with English and Writing difficulties.
I enjoy teaching students. My method of teaching has been to help students make transitions from previously learned knowledge to new knowledge by way of using mind-mapping, subject-mapping. Also, I've found in my recent experience that students enjoy learning thru the use of multimedia, so I'm constantly trying to find new and interesting documentaries that can help my students better understand their curriculum.
I usually ask the students I teach to list at least three things they would like to accomplish and set realistic goals in order to achieve them. Setting practical goals is one of the key characteristics of both successful students and successful people in all professions.
If there is anything I can help you achieve in your education I'll use all the resources at my command to help you achieve them. Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions regarding subjects we can cover and how I can help you become a better student or prepare for your next big educational goal.
I've written over 26 books and 24 albums of music. I enjoy creative writing and would like to help you accomplish your goals.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bible Studies

I studied New Testament under Enrico Nardoni at University of Dallas, The Psalms and Prophets under Fr George Boudreau at Notre Dame Seminary, New Testament Letter of St. Paul under Msgr. Fitzpatrick at Notre Dame Seminary, Old Testament Theology At Holy Trinity Seminary.
I've also written and studied scriptures and Biblical Languages at Notre Dame Seminary.
I have studied critical methods of interpreting the Bible used by the Major Christian Religions of the world.

Composition (Music)

I graduated from Louisiana State University with a Masters in Music Composition. I've also composed over 1000 songs and musical compositions. Lastly, I'm the author of 25 recorded albums of music.

Music History

During my graduate program at Louisiana State University I had to study the entire history of music from Greek to 21st century. I also took seminars in Bach, Beethoven and Brahms. I had to specialize in 20th century musical compositional practices as well as Electro-Acoustic methods used in electronic music. I've listened to hundreds of hours of musical compositions from every major musical period and passed my examinations for Masters in Music composition from one of the major research universities in the United States, Louisiana State University.

Music Production

I've worked many hours in recording booths. I've recorded live at Private Island tracks in Los Angeles, developed and recorded in my own music studio for over 10 years and have over 20 albums of recorded music published and performed. Much of my music has been used in TV and recent international films. I've worked in the studio with Leonard Rosenman, Buddy Baker (Walt Disney Theme Parks), Jack Smalley (Murder, She Wrote), Elmer Bernstein and other noted Hollywood film composers.

Reading

I've helped students through Metro schools over this past year. I'm the author of several books and believe I can help devise a read strategy to help your grandson with reading comprehension.

Religion

I studied toward a Masters in Divinity from Notre Dame Seminary and have written over 20 books in theological topics and general religious education. I spent 6 years doing door-to-door Evangelization for the Catholic Church and continue to write on religious topics daily. Many of my religious books available online have been rated with 3 & 4 stars. Five of my books have been awarded the Imprimatur from the Arhcdiocese of St. Louis.

Songwriting

I belong to Nashville Songwriters Association, an international group of songwriters whose specialty is popular and country songwriting. I've had many of my songs critiqued by songwriters who have had many #1 songs to their credit. My songs are played often on internet radio like Jango. My songs are also available through Amazon digital music store. I presently have a small catalog of over 500 country and popular songs.
