I am a guitar teacher with 10+ years of experience teaching all different styles of music. Blues, Folk, Acoustic, funk, ska, Rock, Metal, Melodic, Country, Classical, Punk, Alternative, and various other melodies. I have played concerts all over the state of Illinois and I have taught many students throughout the years. I teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced players. I am very passionate at what I do and I will guide you through the proper steps in becoming a great guitar player. Playing music takes a lot of time and patience as well as a lot of practice playing by yourself and in front of people. I am very relaxed and motivated to help my students learn and I will guide you through everything. I would prefer that students bring their own guitars so that you would be more ...
I've played chess since I was a young child. I remember being in the chess club at my elementary school, over 20 years ago! I've since led a chess club of my own and taught plenty of young students how to play. I'm happy to teach the basics - the moves and strategies of chess to the novice player.
I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums. I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others. *** Lesson Details *** I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrument takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put some time into ...

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 enjoy helping players of all ages and skill levels, and currently work with students as young as six years old. I learned to play at a young age myself, and chess has helped me greatly in achieving success in other areas of my life.
I have taught chess for over 10 years, and I generally prefer to do online lessons because I find my students are more engaged and focused. I have a unique process that I use to teach, and do not rely solely on webcams to teach.
I used a customized, virtual chess board setup on a website called Chess.com to teach, along with a Skype video conversation so that we can talk through any situation. On this board, we can go over just about any situation, from openings to specific tactical situations and end game strategy.
This board also allows me to work well with Youth, as I can take away key pieces or add stronger pieces to my students' side so they can have fun and learn offensive strategy.
The Chess.com platform also allows me to draw ...
