I have an unquenchable passion to learn about and create music. I grew up in a small fishing village in Nova Scotia, Canada, with very little concert music around me. After hearing a digital piano play a Schubert Impromptu, I devoted my spare time to piano practice until I could play that piece. Since then, I have never stopped learning about and writing music. Sharing the joy of music with students and walking with them on a journey of learning is my greatest joy.

I have eight years teaching experience. Of those seven, five of them have been in music stores wherein I taught students of all ages, musical interests and skill levels. My students have gone on to form rock bands of their own, compete in singer/songwriter contests and pick up other musical instruments all because of the musical interest/passion I have helped develop.
I am very involved in the local music scene. I have written, produced, engineered and played on many recordings ranging in genre from folk to metal and classical to jazz. My band, Oceanborn, will be releasing our debut album in two weeks (10/1/2013) wherein I wrote, produced, engineered and tracked guitar. I have a modest, but very high quality studio setup and a lot of versatile gear to help me get the job done.
Please be sure to check out my blog "SCALES and CHORDS and STRINGS, OH MY!!" it is a one-stop place for getting FREE guitar insight and pointers.

I've worked with children for the last 8 years between the ages of 1 and 16. I professionally tutor my brother in pre algebra at the moment and really enjoy it. Math comes easily to me and I love it when I see a child catching on! I have several different ways of approaching teaching, all fun and energetic! Every child learns differently so each plan would be devised around the specific student.
Lessons would be based on how the child learns, or at first finding out how the child learns. Anyone can do math, it's just a matter of finding out what works best for the student!
I'm a great applicant because while I am younger, I have the energy and creativity to help each and every student! My teaching style is based on the child having fun and learning! I promise to make learning fun and interesting! I have several creative ways of doing so! If you can't get the child's attention, they're not going to learn. Therefore, my goal is to bring the energy in to get that attention and get the ball rolling.

I am currently in college studying music performance at one of the most accomplished institutions of this state and have also received the President's Award for Educational Excellence two years in a row, 2010 and 2011 in recognition of Outstanding Academic Excellence. Additionally, I have a 4.0 GPA out of 4.0. Furthermore, I am a very accomplished musician for my young age of 19, as I play principal flute in both the College of DuPage Chamber Orchestra as well as the DuPage Community Band. Lastly, I have been involved in the competitive music industry my whole life, and am very intelligent in many school subjects and can offer your child or teen a comfortable, fun, safe, constructive learning environment which can help your child improve their grades in school, or musically speaking, can help them improve their musical skills and knowledge no matter what the reasoning is behind you wanting your child to play music; whether it is because you, or your child, wants a career in the music industry, or if your child wants to learn a musical instrument for fun.

I am a passionate educator with over 25 years experience teaching in the classroom on a public and private high school level, as well as considerable experience as a college instructor; thus, I have the ability and experience to convey knowledge to my students from the unique perspective of teaching from the ground up -- elementary, middle school, high school and on to my students' college and professional endeavors.
I am consistently aware where my students are in the present moment and where they are going; I view their ongoing needs, challenges and accomplishments from a perspective of their past, present and future desires, challenges, accomplishments and requirements and am able to solidify their pursuits and prepare them for their academic and professional future.
I have taught in Inner City Schools -- The Bronx, Manhattan and Harlem in NYC for NYC Public Schools; in Gifted and Talented programs and Schools; and for the NYC Catholic Archdiocese in several of the city's finest schools, as well as NYC inner city public schools in the Bronx and Manhattan, NYC, on a full time basis from Grades 5 - 12; and as a long term substitute, from Grades K-4.
Two of the schools where I taught English Language Arts, and Test Taking Skills, graduated U.S. Supreme Court Judges Sonya Sotomayor, from Cardinal Spellman H.S. in the Bronx; and Elena Kagan, from Hunter Colege High School, a Gifted and Talented school in Manhattan (NY, NY). I also taught in innter city schools in El Paso, TX; Minneapolis, MN, and at suburban high school in New Mexico.
Since my move to Chicago in 2012 I have worked steadily as a writer and editor in my own Editing/Writing business as discussed in my advertisement.
I have home schooled Chicago students in English Composition, where we concentrated on writing, grammar and vocabulary; and in the Humanities areas of Social Studies, History, Math and the Sciences, where I designed and created curriculum for all of these disciplines that complied with IL State Core Curriculum requirements.
Extensive professional background and years of experience in the Arts - Theatre, Film, Art. Have taught acting for many years to children and professionals, and am able to expose and educate your home school child to these fields via formal instruction and field trips to cultural and educational events.
It has been my experience to teach and tutor elementary, middle school, high school, and College Students, along with Business Professionals and Adults in English Composition and ESL, where we concentrate on the writing of essays, papers, theses, reports and ACT & ESL Exam Preparation; Speech, which includes writing and performance; Acting; ACT & ESL Test Preparation; and ESL Writing and Speaking.
For years I have been writing curriculum and reading comprehension passages, which includes assembling enough of these reading comprehension passages and their accompanying questions, which include Fiction -- classic literature, creative fictional passages, poetry and fairy/folk tales; and Non-Fiction -- Biographies, Science, History and Social Studies passages -- in order to provide my students, including home schooled students, with a reading comprehension passage and their accompanying questions 7 days a week.
Studies have shown this is the most effective method of obtaining excellent, if not superior, reading comprehension skills, because this method of acquiring this skill is learned organically and over time; thus, students do not have to be taught how to achieve excellent results in any of the reading comprehension passages they encounter on formal, entrance or qualifying examinations that they will be required to take throughout their schooling, along with those examinations they will need to pass in order to qualify and achieve certification in professional fields. Teaching to tests is unnecessary, and it has been proven that this method of teaching is largely only an exercise in learning how to test, not learning to read with excellent reading comprehension skills.
I have produced, directed and designed for my own theatrical production company for the last 14 years and, upon request, will supply a list of the productions in which I was involved, along with a list of productions in which I have been involved on a professional basis as a Performance Artist, Producer, Director and Designer.
It may be because of my theatrical training and experience, but I've been told that I am an interesting teacher with whom to study, and come to the classroom and tutorial experience with instructional methods and real-world experience that is accompanied with a highly developed sense of humor. This enables me to help make learning fun, while providing my students with a more fully rounded education.
I'm always interested in and consistently strive to find those personal connections with each one of my students that illuminates a path to personalize and activate my students' innate desire and need for learning in all subjects tutored. I
I personally love to learn as much as my profession, and get along well with students of all ages. The great thing about teaching is that those of us in this profession learn as much from our students as our students learn from us!
I look forward to hearing from you!

I find education so important, which is why I am a tutor. I want to help people do better in school, on exams, and simply learn to enjoy learning.
I have a lot of experience teaching all ages from kindergarten up to college-level i.e. biology, chemistry, physics and math - algebra and geometry.
A little about me, I recently moved from France to here in Chicago. I am responsible, hardworking, caring, and a great listener. I am confident that you will improve in your learning with me as your tutor, but only if you are willing to put your effort in too!
