Experienced, Highly Qualified Math Tutor and Music Teacher Available (and other subjects)! My Wednesday availability is for the area around Maryvale and south Glendale. I could add some time on Sunday if necessary. Other days would be for areas more to the East. My approach in my lessons is to identify and correct whatever weakness prevents you from progressing. Math got you down? It can be easier than you think! My knowledge of math has greatly increased my income. It can increase your income, too! Don't get stuck earning minimum wage. I am a highly qualified, experienced teacher and have been tutoring people since 1975. I passed the state AEPA Area 10 test and am highly qualified to teach secondary mathematics. I even help students who are home-schooled! I am also an experienced student with seven college degrees, including a B.A.! I used my Data Processing degree to write some math drill computer programs to help students with basic math skills. Students can access them on my laptop computer! I have worked as a chess coach and have a little time available around my current work schedule. Contact me for tutoring: math, algebra, trigonometry, geometry, test preparation (math portions of AIMS, ACT, SAT, ASVAB, GED, GRE, GMAT, etc.), physics, electronics, computers (software, hardware), music (theory, aural perception, guitar, piano, singing, winds), Spanish, economics, investments, business, and chess. Also: Music Lessons in Your Home on Your Instrument! Music lessons (appreciation/history, theory, aural perception, songleading, guitar, piano, singing, winds) by a professional singer. I use the first lesson to learn about the student's background, current level, and direction of interest. There may be some general instruction. Beginning with the second lesson, instruction is more personalized to the student's individual needs. Personal information: Until 2013, my primary source of income since 1992 was education. I have been to Europe five times, México twice, coast-to-coast in the U.S., and to Hawaii twice (Now I have been to every southern state except Florida!). My credentials: * experienced high school math teacher * experienced private teacher * experienced tutor * OPAC certification for Windows * OPAC certification for Windows XP * OPAC certification for Spreadsheet * OPAC certification for Basic Excel 2007 * OPAC certification for Intermediate Excel 2007 * OPAC certification for Basic Word 2007 * OPAC certification for Intermediate Word 2007 * OPAC certification for PowerPoint * OPAC certification for Database * OPAC certification for Basic Math * OPAC certification for Record Locating * OPAC certification for Telephone Order Entry * OPAC certification for Customer Service * OPAC certification for Proofreading * OPAC certification for Spelling *** Lesson Details *** I work with you on what you need. My goal is to help you understand so that you can learn to do what you need to do without me. *** Specialties *** I specialize in helping people learn the math they need for school and tests such as AIMS, ACT, SAT, GMAT, GRE, ASVAB, etc. I am a highly qualified math teacher in Arizona. I also teach computers, software, basic electronics, music, chess, Bible, and Spanish.

Harmonica, also known as the "Mouth Harp" is a very easy, practical and fun little instrument for all ages! You can take this little gem of an instrument wherever you go. We will start with the very basics of how to hold the harmonica correctly, proper mouth position, how to achieve a nice, clean sound when blowing and drawing (putting it simply, drawing your breath back in, inhaling.) The items you will need is a Harmonica in the key of C and a Lesson Book. Harmonicas come in various keys, but the key you will need to learn when signing up in the TakeLessons platform will be the KEY OF C. Once you have signed up, either for yourself, or a child, I will then send you an email with the link where you can purchase the lesson book that we will work out of. Once you have a good foundation and are comfortable playing the harmonica, we can then determine what genre or style of music you would like to play. There are books that have a nice selection of songs that cover bluegrass, country, hits, gospel and more. NEW! Starting on 9/1/2021: I have decided to offer all new students an "indefinite discount" for not only back-to-school students, but for all ages. To be a bit of a financial help, I've lowered my current prices to give a long term discount. A 30 minute lesson is usually $28.00. With the discount, it will be $23. A 45 minute lesson is usually $39, with the discount, it will be $34. A 60 minute lesson is usually $50, with the discount, it will be $45. I am looking forward to helping you learn how to play this fun and very unique little "pocket" instrument!
