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 work in the DC metro area, at school, or your home. I have worked in my office as a child psychologist, and in many home in DC and Maryland as a tutor. I am licensed in Florida as a teacher in the above subjects. I tutor/teach both online, (by computers) and in homes/schools. I worked for Child Development Center, (US Military) and have a background clearance for children. I would be happy to tutor your son at your home or the nearby library.
My method of teaching is called “student center”. As you might know, this method looks at what the student needs now to do well in the course, and not how a tutor might teach the same way for all his/her students.
Sometimes, I have found that students have some opposition to math. Many times they are quite bright students, but the math subject is just not present to them in a method that works best for them. Having been a teacher and a psychologist, I use different teaching methods to communicate the lessons. This seems to work. I believe I can make it work for your child. My background as a psychologist working with the school system does help to understand students general attitude toward certain school subjects. I adjust my teaching methods with each student I tutor. This helps me do a better job at teaching your child and the students feel that they are getting the information they need for their classes to be successful in the courses.
I have been teaching and tutoring students from preschool to Graduate school for more than 20 years. I am retired military and US government. I taught at more than over 5 universities and many elementary, middle, and high school. I was also a child psychologist in the DC metro area for many years. I have a Ph.D., MBA, MS, and BS from University of California, Berkeley. I taught also in Germany with UMUC (Maryland) and many places in China (6 Years) and Africa. I taught at the child development center, (CDC) for the military.
The areas I do most tutoring in are math, business, engineering, science, physics, English.
I have a TEFL, (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) Certificate from England.
I taught in China, preschool, middle and High school.
Boland T.E.F.L. Diploma - International T.E.F.L Diploma.
The Boland School T.E.F.L Diploma program is geared towards preparing native speakers of English who would like to teach English as a foreign language.
I would be happy to answer any additional questions.

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.

I was an engineering tutor at University of Texas at Austin from 2006-2009. I graduated from UT with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 2009. I am very familiar with the UT engineering courses (from the beginning to the end).
While I was at UT, I also studied jazz drumming with Brannen Temple. I have been playing professionally for over ten years with lots of different bands. Teaching and playing music are the most gratifying things for me. But I also like to teach math!
I have been teaching high school math, physics, and music theory at Premier High School of North Austin for five years (2009-2014). I am a certified teacher by the state of Texas.

I am a Math major who graduated from the University of Maryland (UMD) in May of 2013 with Honors, and will graduate with a Masters in Secondary Math Education this month (June 2014). I have had a year of teaching as a student teacher at a high school in Montgomery County, MD, and am am seeking a full time teaching position next year. I am willing and able to tutor in all math subjects, from Pre-Algebra up to Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Calculus 3, and other college level and basic math. I enjoy working with all age groups and am excited about being able to put my math skills to good use helping students of various ages and skills.
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.
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
