Basic mathematical principals learned from elementary school to college levels. I ensure that all basic fundamentals are well observed and understood by the student.

About Jonathan
About

I am a Florida native, active doctoral student, teacher and practitioner. My career includes performing and recording as a guitarist and teaching subjects such as music or math. Grade-school academic strengths in mathematics represent my enthusiasm for the subject. The math equivalent in music can be considered music theory, which is another passion of mine. I hope to take these well-rounded characteristics to teach and influence others with what I have learned in my education and career thus far.

Education & Teaching Experience:

I am currently pursuing my Doctorate of Musical Arts from Shenandoah University and hold a Masters of Music from the University of Akron and a Bachelor of Music from Stetson University (all degrees with a guitar performance emphasis). I also have a temporary teaching certificate for Music K-12 fro
m the Florida Department of Education. I have taught in Florida as a preferred substitute for general music classes, K-12. In college, I have given study sessions for music theory levels ranging from 4-part writing to post-serialism.

Degrees:
Doctorate of Musical Arts: Guitar Performance; Shenandoah University, expected May 2017/2018
Master of Music: Guitar Performance; University of Akron, May 2014
Bachelor of Music: Guitar Performance; Stetson University, 2011

While giving lessons:
I ensure that every student receives fundamental foundation pertaining to the subject. While learning the basics, I advise that the student organizes their lessons and materials in a way that displays progress over time. With the proper knowledge, we can treat the heart of a subject with refinement in order to grasp it's purpose and reason---whether its music or math.

Why?
My students have grown with confidence through a sense of accomplishment. Success does not only affect a person's well-being but can also impact other dimensions of their lives.

Very nice. It would have been better if I knew what books to purchase ahead of time. To maximize the lesson time, teacher should send expectations and tips for success to students ahead so preparation can take place. Be sure to have your own equipment too.

With a background in teaching and learning with a specialization in special education and behavioral therapies: Monique can determine which method or approach best suits your student's needs and customize lessons to overcome frustration and remove barriers to comprehension and retention.

About Monique
I specialize in teaching students with autism or other similar behavioral/learning challenges. I am a Registered Behavior Tech with a graduate level degree who is currently pursuing a post graduate certificate to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). I am trained in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapies.

I have been sharing the joy of playing guitar with others since 1983. I attended Guitar Institute of Technology from September 1984 to September 1985 and still hold the title as the youngest female graduate at the school to this day. I later earned a Masters degree in teaching and learning to enhance my skills as a teacher in music and in other areas of education; but I learned some very valuable skills in my graduate program that give me an edge over teachers without an advanced degree. I have studied how people learn,
how learning styles vary and how to identify and accommodate various learning styles in order to get the most from each individual student and teach each student in the most effective manner according to their particular learning style.

*** Lesson Details ***
While I may have formal training in teaching, my actual approach is very holistic. I like to get to know my students; I want to know about them- what kind of music they are interested in and how they learn best. Once I determine the type of learner that I am working with and what the student would like to achieve, I then use that to develop an individualized approach for that student. I believe that fundamentals are necessary and good, but I also believe that those fundamentals should be put to use in a manner that accommodates the student and their particular likes and musical goals as quickly as possible. What good are concepts without application? I want to see students playing with skill AND with joy because they are able to play what they love to listen to and even more....I like to see students create their own music with the skills that they acquire.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student needs instrument, writing tools, paper, CD player or MP3 player.

*** Specialties ***
(Autism Spectrum Disorders
ABA trained)
I don't necessarily specialize in any particular method, especially given the fact that I am accustomed to customizing curriculum in the educational realm. I evaluate each student's individual styles, abilities and desires with regard to what they want to learn.

Monique is a great teacher

I am delighted with Monique. She is very professional and is very comfortable teaching. The lessons have just the right pace and she is good at building on fundamentals. As an adult learner, I am glad to have a mature teacher I feel comfortable with. That rapport is an important element for me as a beginning student.

I taught basic math in elementary education up to 6th grade. I also have a concentration in mathematics from the University of California Northridge. My teaching goals are to provide students with what they need. I use visuals and the use of manipulative to help students who cannot grasp the foundational skills they need in math. Without the foundational skills mathematics will always be a problem.

About Desearee
I have a Ryan Multiple Subject teaching credential with English language learner authorization from the state of California and taught in the public education system there for 5 years. I am also certified in Texas with a Generalist (EC-6) and and English Learner supplemental certification. I have been teaching in Houston for the past year and a half. I have a Master's of Arts degree in Teaching from the University of Southern California along with certification from the University of California, San Diego in teaching gifted students. I am passionate about education and providing students with the information they need to be successful in life!

Tutor came and seemed interested in helping, actually did research which indicated so. Then I had to cancel a lesson due to child having strep but advise will resume following week. Then received a call from Take Lesson stating she says 'not a good fit.' which is perfectly fine but she could have indicated that in an adult manner verses me getting a call Tuesday a day prior to lesson.
Disappointed but found more reliable and dedicated concerned turtor.

Long ago while still anyoung student in middle school I thought math was a pointless subject. Decades later and my whole job is based on math. Had I known then what I know now I would have out more efforts into my lessons. I want to be that mentor and voice that math leads to generous careers and helps in maintaining a health financial life in the future.

About Andrea
Hello! My name is Andrea and my passion is math. It took a long time for me to realize math was my bread and butter but I am glad that I did! I can tutor/teach basic math skills to advanced calculas, statistics and differential equations. I use math everyday be it at work or at home and I wish for every student to learn that math plays an intricate role in all our lives. AND math is a fun subject!

As for history. Give me a good story and it is probably based on real life events. Our favorite books, movies, and tv shows all are all linked to a past event that influences the present idea. By bridging yesterday to today I make learning history fun and exciting. I hope the desire to hunt for that real world link will stay with a student forever as this very techniques worked on me.

I have experience teaching math to students (K-8). I focus on understanding the concepts first in order for students to improve test scores and apply what they learned.

About Kristen
I graduated from UCLA with a degree in Psychology. I also minored in Disability Studies and Gerontology. I have been tutoring students for over 3 years and have experience working with all age groups.

I enjoy teaching students of all levels and backgrounds. As a tutor, I have taught lessons in multiple subjects, but my personal interest is in Reading and Writing. I help my students improve their skills weekly while encouraging them to craft their own voice and writing style. (This is very important for high school students working on their college admission essays!) I strive to really get to know my students and create personalized lesson plans according to their needs. My ultimate goal with every student I teach, is not only to catch him/her up in schoolwork, but also get him/her ahead.
