Daniel A.

Aurora, CO

About Daniel

Now accepting students in Aurora, Co. and surrounding areas!!!

In addition to teaching music, I have also worked as a special education assistant and wrestling/track coach at Lake Zurich Middle School South and an assistant Kung Fu/Tai Chi instructor at Green Mountain Arts in Logan Square, Chicago, Illinois. Jazz piano, Voice, and Composition are my main areas of expertise. However, I have also been recording, and playing guitar almost my entire life. I fully believe in music education not only for entertainment and personal enjoyment, but for many other means. Beyond its capacity for being
used as entertainment, music aids in learning, helps develop advanced motor skills, increases memory function, and many other purposes for a well rounded education. It is my goal to help educate the next generation in traditional music practices as well as incorporate new techniques that are relevant to our current day and age.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lesson plans vary from person to person. I always make it a point to get to know the student's existing musical knowledge, goals, and background before I create a personalized lesson plan. All important concepts are covered as they are needed so students can understand theoretical concepts based upon actual application and usage. In short, I teach in a way that students can "dig in" right away and play, create, improvise, sing and/or compose freely and naturally. I always encourage students or parents to contact me with their goals, previous musical training, etc., and discuss what they really want out of lessons so they can get the most out of taking me on as an instructor.

About a year ago I decided I wanted to start writing poetry again. It was something I’d enjoyed doing years before, but I stopped because I had trouble completing poems or felt that the ones I did complete were not as good as they could be. I then decided that I needed to find someone who would guide me through the process and offer feedback and guidance along the way. I was very fortunate to find Thomas Ramey Watson. He is a pleasure to work with. I have been working with Tom on a weekly basis for almost a year. As an educator and writer of poetry, prose, and scholarly articles, Tom's extensive literary knowledge enhances my ability to add depth and breadth to my own work. We generally begin each session with a poem that I feel I have worked through the best I can. Going line by line, stanza by stanza, Tom helps me discover parts of the poem I may want to explore further and helps me accentuate the most powerful parts of the poem. He tells me what he thinks works and what does not, and offers concise guidance on ways to improve. It has been a joy to watch my poetry evolve in different ways and for them truly to come to life. I would encourage anyone who wants to write the best poetry they can to consider working with Tom. He won't write it for you, but he will give you the tools and guidance needed to do it yourself. I've learned that writing a poem is truly a process, and it can take a considerable amount of time to complete just one poem. However, when your poem is done, you will know that it truly is done and be left with a piece of writing that you can be proud of.

I am confident that anyone who has worked with him on various forms of prose writing and studied literature with him can say the same.

I was really pleased with my first session with Thomas. I signed up with Thomas because I wanted someone to help me develop a poem that I am working on. Thomas offered some very valuable feedback and ideas to strengthen my work. To find someone with so much experience as an educator, someone who has written several books, and someone who is passionate about what they do is really quite a gift. I would encourage anyone who is looking to become a better writer to consider Thomas. I am looking forward to my future sessions with him.

Spencer M.

Boulder, CO

About Spencer

I'm a senior student at the University of Colorado - Boulder, and I'm a History major with an emphasis in American History. The boring part about me is that I have an "A" range GPA with exemplary test scores in reading, writing, and composition. However, the most helpful experience I've ever had in writing was simply by tutoring others, like you. I'm candid in my teaching style, and to best help you in writing endeavors the most important thing I can do is let you express yourself naturally. Formulaic rubrics such as "5 Paragraph Essays" are not the ticket to being a better writer. What's most
important is a strong argument. I want to help you bring out that inner voice.

I'm a massive dork when it comes to History, and have read a biography on every President of the United States. I love to share my historical fun facts with my friends and family, even though it often drives them crazy when they aren't as excited as me! I look forward to working with you!

Rose H.

Denver, CO

About Rose

A few years ago, I stepped outside of my apartment to do something immensely difficult: find lunch. As I walked down the streets of Geoje Island, South Korea that first day of arrival, I was overwhelmed by the tall buildings, trucks blasting a strange language over loud speakers, and incomprehensible signs in Hangul. However, two years later, I would think of it as the best experience of my life so far, and one that I hope to experience again and again in new countries.

I have extensive experience in cross cultural training and teaching. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the Univer
sity of Akron in December of 2008 with a baccalaureate in Anthropology and a minor in English, and I graduated with a Masters in TESL from Kent State University in August of 2011 with a 3.95 grade point average. I began teaching English at a community center in 2010. I spent over two years teaching at the university level and two years teaching English classes in an elementary school in South Korea. I have been in the field of teaching for over sixteen years. In addition to teaching English I have taught horseback riding, swimming, and ballroom dancing.

I always give one hundred percent and take initiative in leading projects to better serve my students. During the time that I taught at Kent State University, the ESL center underwent some dramatic changes in which I participated. The head of the department began to standardize our curriculum. Committees were formed to create a curriculum for every course. I led the listening committee and co-created a curriculum for listening courses at all levels. We worked with the speaking committee to choose an integrated textbook series for all listening and speaking courses. I then trained all new listening instructors. In my time at Kent State University, I would often spend time outside the classroom helping students with assignments. I often set aside office time to meet with every student to give them individual feedback on their assignments.

While I was in S. Korea, I spent much time outside of school hours working with students and creating materials for the classroom. I often created new materials based off the research of my favorite TESL scholar, Paul Nation. I created many on-line presentations to help students learn grammar and vocabulary. I also wrote stories using simple grammar and words taken from a list of the 2,000 most common words. I created board games for students to encourage them to use the language in an authentic way. In addition, I helped students prepare for speech contests. I spent time after school with several students helping them to develop and articulate their speeches.

My professional goals are to create curricula and new exciting materials for the English language classroom, and to continue to develop as a teacher. I am particularly interested in the connection between dancing and language learning. Recently, I have been working on a curriculum that uses Swing dancing to teach English language students fundamental vocabulary and grammar while learning about American culture.

My personal goal is to experience as much of the world as possible. Every time I enter into a new culture, my world not only opens up to different ways of doing things, I also learn more about myself. Seeing myself through the lens of another culture helped me to understand who I am, what I stand for, what I want to be. I realized that every culture contains both unimaginable beauty and some aspects that could use changing. I really enjoy seeing the different ways people do things and trying to understand why they do it the way that they do.

I will contribute my expertise in teaching, leadership, ambition, and love for others. I hope to bring the principles of Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) to programs around the world to facilitate life-long language learning in students. I want to ignite in them a love for learning that will burn long after I leave them. I hope to create new leaders who will emerge to make the world a better place.

Horseback Riding · In studio
Rose worked for me at one of her early teaching experiences as a therapeutic horseback riding instructor for special needs children and adults. The students loved her. She was enthusiastic and dependable. I still use many of her teaching methods as well as her curriculum for the program which she created on her own time. She put countless hours into her lesson plans, above and beyond what was required. She is person who loves to teach.

I had several dance instructors, Rose has been by far the best. She takes a vested interest in what motivates you. She was always attentive and customized the lessons to me rather than using a one size fits all mentality.
I would highly recommend Rose.
