About Dominick C.

About Dominick
I have more than 12 years teaching experience. Of those 12, five of them have been in music stores wherein I taught students of all ages, musical interests and skill levels. My students have gone on to form rock bands of their own, compete in singer/songwriter contests and pick up other musical instruments all because of the musical interest/passion I have helped develop.

I was very involved with the local music scene in the Midwest and now, in the Phoenix area. I have written, produced, engineered and played on many recordings ranging in genre from folk to metal and classical to jazz.

I have a professional studio built in my home that has a both a control and live room, wherein, I can record something as elaborate as a full band or something as simple as a single vocalist.

Please be sure to check out my blog "SCALES and CHO
RDS and STRINGS, OH MY!!" it is a one-stop place for getting guitar insight and pointers.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style has three major areas: technique, theory and composition. I try to motivate students to write their own music and by doing this I establish a need for theory and technique to accomplish what it is they may feel or hear in their heads.

I try very hard to establish and maintain a comfortable environment with my students. In a comfortable place, someone will be open and not afraid to express themselves and make mistakes. Moreover, they will be able to recap the benefits of having a one-on-one musical instructor that can help them reach their goals.

I respond to passion very quickly. I can promise if the student is serious about learning guitar and passionate about music all together, then they will excel quickly with me and have much versatility to show for the hard work and practice.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Pro Tools, music workstation, keyboards, guitars, basses, amps, effects processing, microphones, stools, studio monitors all in a professional studio space with good lighting.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide instrument cables, tuner, music stand and practice amplifiers. I always expect a student to have his or her own guitar with a complete set of strings. However, I am always willing to let a student use one of my guitars for experimental purposes. Also, depending on the student and type of lesson, more may be required; such as: a computer with recording software, audio interface and a keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in music theory-based instruction, improvisational techniques, songwriting and instrumental versatility. It is my goal to produce musicians that are passionate about all three parts of music: creation, practice and performance.

Encouraging Guitar Teacher

Dominick was nice, patient, and encouraging with my eleven-year-old daughter, which she needed. He was also responsive about rescheduling lessons by texting (which we both needed to do at times).

Got an A!!!

I'm usually a horrible mathematics student but this semester I was taking calculus which is daunting on its own even for students who have been taking mathematics. I have had a 5 year gap from my studies and Varna has been excellent, she helped me work my way up from an F to an A!!! I would recommend her for ALL my future mathematics classes.

I am a beginner, but because of Larry's different method of teaching music theory, it was easy for me to understand the fundamentals of music scales and consequently the origin of the chords and how they are formed. Larry goes the extra mile to make sure that you capture and understand the concepts.
Thank you!

I've been teaching math for almost 10 years and my students have been able to ace subjects they considered difficult. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to understand what it is you're having trouble with and as time goes on you'll be able to solve those problems. I specialize in worksheets with repetitive problems because practice makes perfect! I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

No show for first session. Second session via phone while driving with bad reception. Couldn't answer questions stating that they were Physics, not Earth Science. (Yes my daughter is enrolled in an Earth Science.) Disorganized, lacks knowledge, inattentive.

We had some bumps in the road as we were new to the program Ms Charlotte used, however once we were finally connected the lesson went well. My son Jake is 9 and is struggling with vocabulary and reading comprehension and he is not a fan of tutoring, however Ms Charlotte was able to win him over in the first lesson so that says a lot about her ability to engage children.

About Rakesh
My passion of teaching originates from my personal interest in learning. I get a sense of accomplishment when I facilitate the success of another individual with my teaching. As a graduate myself from a top 10 US university, I understand that to succeed in today's extremely competitive world one has to be really good with the subjects as well as scores. I consider this as an opportunity for me to help other students succeed in getting admissions to colleges of their dream.

I am a Chemistry/Chemical Engineering graduate and very well versed in Math and Chemistry subjects. I specialize in teaching AP and SAT Chemistry, Maths; precalculus, Algebra and Geometry, high school Chemistry and Math. I have tutored more than 10 students in the last 12 months and ~80% of them have got excellent scores in SAT and AP subjects.

I generally start with
understanding the requirements of the students as well as their learning style. I adapt my teaching style according to the students. I believe in open feedback and will continue teaching the student only if both the parents and the student involved are completely satisfied. I am generally flexible with the time (during weekends, and after 6 pm on weekdays).

I am very confident that your child will enjoy my teaching and be able to excel in the respective subject.

I have a doctoral degree and 30 years of teaching experience in mathematics at public and private colleges. I have also done much one-on-one tutoring and curriculum planning. I am now retired.

I can help you learn arithmetic, algebra, finite math, trigonometry, or any other area of mathematics from primary or secondary school, or beginning college math. I have heard my students say things like "This is the first time I ever understood math!"

First of all, you have to believe that you are capable of doing mathematics. You may have heard well-meaning friends or parents say "You don't have a math brain" or "You are not a math person". These are counterproductive thoughts. In fact, anyone can learn mathematics. If you adopt a positive attitude and make good use of your study time, you can make great strides!

I've been tutoring students in mathematics ranging from basic skills to calculus for a few years now. In the fall semester of 2017, I was a teaching assistant for my University's calculus course as well as a volunteer tutor for students in varying math courses, whether in college or elementary school. I've been an accelerated math student my whole life, and am currently an economics major. Math comes quickly and easily to me, and I enjoy seeing others experience this feeling as well.

About Teresa
I love helping students have that "ah-ha!" moment. I never thought I'd enjoy math, but earning a 4.0 in all my mathematics courses enabled me to find an interest in mathematical concepts. I'm currently a junior at Oakland University in Rochester Hills, Mi and am majoring in economics with a minor in international relations. I've been tutoring at my university since I first started there in both math and economics. While in high school, I was constantly tutoring elementary and middle school students around my area in math.
