I have had a fairly diverse musical background, including playing with bands and orchestras, as well as participating in choral groups and opera. I have a master's degree in music performance for wind conducting, and a bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis on piano performance. I have taught private lessons off and on for several years now but have always been successful wherever I went.
I love music, which should be obvious because if I didn't I wouldn't be writing this now! I also have a real passion for sharing my knowledge and experience with others, both failures and successes. I believe everyone has creative potential, and I believe music is a real universal art form that anyone can tap into if they want. Making and creating music should also be fun!

I try to keep my lessons professional but comfortable too. I don't like yelling at students for messing up or anything like that. I always have an agenda but am willing to adjust and compromise if the situation dictates to. If you don't have a curriculum in mind, I will do my best to find one that fits you as a student best. My initial goals are to make sure the basics of reading music and performing are set so that no matter what musical avenue you eventually want to pursue, you can be successful at it. I do specialize in classical music but enjoy creating and playing other genres as well.
I now also offer lessons online, as well as tutoring in most math areas!
*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a piano keyboard at my home.

I would expect students to have their own instruments as needed, as well as music paper, pencils, etc. I may be able to provide some of those materials on occasion as well as some books/recordings, but will by and large expect students to purchase those for themselves.
*** Specialties ***
I am much more familiar with classical styles and Broadway. My music writing style tends to be somewhere between neo-classical and avant-garde.
I graduated from Hunter College, CUNY with a BA/MA in Mathematics Education in 2013. I am also a certified New York State Grade 7-12 Mathematics Classroom Teacher since 2013.
I worked as a student teacher in the Bronx in 2013. I have also worked as a substitute teacher. I also do tutoring at Bronx Community College in Math and Statistics. Currently, I am a full time 8th Grade Mathematics teacher and also work as a part time Adjunct Mathematics Lecturer at Bronx Community College.
I love what I do - to teach Math. I also love to share with my students what I do know in teaching Math because I believe that sharing is caring.

I am eager and equally interested in applying to offer my skill. With the academic and leadership qualities that you are looking for, I believe I would be able to contribute to the objectives.
I am presently enrolled in New York Institute of Technology as a junior in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and hopefully I will complete my bachelors by May 2015. I am thrilled to know that you are looking for a tutor and I feel that this is the perfect platform for me.
As a result of my previous work experience in the Learning Center in my college for the last couple of years, I believe I am well equipped with not only academic qualifications but also experience of working in an energetic and dynamic environment. I have been also serving for a tutoring Center, Math Matters and very much familiar with the new Common Core Curriculum. I am also familiar with Regions Curriculum I have also served as a Supplemental Instructor for Physics that adds to my leadership abilities.
An opportunity to be able to work will prove to be mutually beneficial. While I will be able to gain further experience about the real-world applications of teaching, I believe that will also be a great addition to the working terms and contribute to the your goals and objectives.

Perseverance has always been one of my many strengths as a person and educator. My interest in teaching and education began over forty years ago. I started tutoring in my eighth grade of school and have recently retired from teaching math in the Nye County School District.
After my tutoring experience in eighth grade, my interests in teaching continued in high school and I took a course that allowed me to teach small groups and individuals called the communications lab. In college, I continued my interests in teaching by attending Oregon College of Education, the number one ranked college for teacher education in the country at that time. I spent a lot of my spare time tutoring individuals and taking classes like the Math Anxiety course, which allowed me to help run the math lab in the mathematics department at Oregon College of Education at certain scheduled times.
For the past thirty years I taught basic math through calculus at Tonopah High School. I have consistently prepared my students to succeed in college as well as in their careers. A large percentage of my students have passed their high school proficiency tests and many of my students have scored very well on their ACT exams. I would like to attribute this to making myself available to my students before and after school, as well as during my preparation period. I also try to keep an open line of communication with stake holders on my student’s success.

If your child is taking Calculus this year and seems to be having a difficult time with it, she might be showing signs of frustration that have you concerned. Calculus is one of the more challenging math classes, and it's crucial to have a good grasp of the concepts each step along the way. The moment she doesn't understand something and get clarification from her teacher, the problems begin. Calculus might be challenging, but there is something you can do to give her a hand. Calculus tutoring from TakeLessons is a great option for anyone who is struggling with this hard, but important math course.
students, they may have forgotten a few of those concepts, like the information they learned in algebra. Understanding algebraic equations is essential, and your child's Calculus tutoring program will help to re-establish those important concepts. One-on-one Calculus tutoring gives your child a competitive edge and helps to ensure that she won't be left behind the rest of her class. Because the more advanced Calculus concepts build upon those that are learned earlier in the year, working with a tutor will keep them fresh in your child's mind.
