Description: Military and other discounts available.

Need a little homework help? Maybe you're having difficulties in one of your classes? Adult going back to school? Or possibly you just want to learn something new! Whatever your needs, I'm available to help. I would love to help you reach your potential. If I don't teach your subject, I'll help you find someone who does.

I've been a classroom educator for over 20 years. I taught classroom Music, Band, Choir, First Grade and Beginning Computer courses at the college level during this time. I began tutoring before I started my college studies in education. I have tutored Reading and Reading Comprehension, Math through Algebra, English/Grammar/Phonics, World History, Science, Study Skills, and have provided Homework Help.

My graduate degree is in Elementary Education and Reading. I enjoy teaching Reading at any level. I have previously taught Reading privately, in small groups, and in the classroom at the first grade level. As my undergraduate degree is in Music Education, I have also taught Flute, Piano and led Bands.

It is my belief that two of the most important academic subjects are Reading and Math. Reading in Kindergarten through Second Grade is primarily reading to learn to read and reading for pleasure. However, beginning around Third grade, reading is used to learn other subjects. Students are expected to begin reading textbooks and other material. If they are not strong in Reading, the other subjects will be very difficult. Of course we use Math everyday of our lives - and Reading! - and for that reason alone Math is important. However, I'm often asked why it's necessary to learn so much Math and learn more advanced Math that isn't always found in everyday life. One reason is "the more you know, the farther you can go!" When you limit the information you learn, you are limiting your possibilities for the future. Math is found in so many other subjects and careers - Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Economics, Psychology, Sociology, Sculpture, Drawing, Music, Engineering - and the list goes on! Of course anything that uses the computer uses Math. Today, that's everywhere. Finally, using Math requires you to think logically and to use the skill in solving problems. It helps you be precise in thoughts and words.

Aside from reading, which is one of my favorite activities, I thoroughly enjoy water activities such as swimming, boating and white water rafting. In addition, I enjoy board games and card games. I frequently play poker online and watch televised games. And yes, I like puzzles. I like Word puzzles and Math puzzles. Sudoku puzzles can be a lot of fun and quite challenging.

Services INCLUDED in my hourly fee: 
-INDIVIDUALIZED instruction 
-Telephone assistance between lessons
-Communication with Teachers and Schools
-Communication with You
-A Learning Plan that is used to develop specific lesson goals

If you choose me as your tutor, you can expect 3 things of me: Prompt, Thorough, Prepared! In addition, you should expect that I will ask you to do work to be prepared for your lessons. I look forward to hearing from you so we can begin soon!

Description: REASONS STUDENTS GET POOR GRADES
There are a number of possible reasons that students get poor grades. Some are external factors, such as the subject matter is too difficult, the teacher is hard to understand, and problems at home. Other reasons have to do with student attitudes, such as didn't do homework and goofed off in class. Finally, there are reasons related to personal issues, such as test anxiety and problems concentrating. If your child has been getting poor grades and you see the reason for it, you can try to rectify the situation and get back on the right track.

Music Tutoring Subjects




Piano

A piano is defined by www.merriamwebster.com as a musical instrument having steel wire strings that sound when struck by felt-covered hammers operated from a keyboard.  The modern piano was invented by Bartolomeo Cristofori and has 88 different keys—52 white and 36 black. When a key is pressed, a hammer strikes the wire strings, creating a sound.  Each key produces a different sound.  Combinations of notes are played together to produce different pieces of music.  To keep a piano sounding its best, regular maintenance is required.


Types of Pianos

There are two different types of full-sized pianos—the grand and the upright.  On a grand piano, the frame and strings are horizontal.  There are three types of grand pianos—concert, parlor and baby grand.  Concert grands range from 7-10 feet, parlor grands are 6-7 feet and baby grand pianos are five feet.  Concert grands produce the best sound and are used in concert halls by professionals for recitals and concerts, while parlor and baby grand pianos are used in non-professional settings, such as homes and classrooms.  Their size makes them a more practical choice.  However the sound they produce is not as rich as that produced by a concert grand.

The frame and strings on an upright piano are vertical.  The hammers strike the wire strings in a horizontal motion and are returned to their starting position by springs.  Pianos taller than 45 inches are usually referred to as uprights.


Pedals

Pianos typically come with either two or three foot pedals depending on the type and size of the piano.  The pedals serve different functions and enhance the sound of the notes being played.  The sustain pedal lengthens the note that is played and the soft pedal softens the sound of a note.  On a grand piano, the third pedal is the sostenuto pedal, and it sustains notes that have already been played, while giving the musician a chance to play additional notes at the same time. The third pedal on an upright piano is the practice pedal, and it mutes the sound of a note.


Learning to Play the Piano

Learning how to play the piano takes time and patience.  It includes learn learning how to read music, position your fingers properly on the keys, transition to different keys up and down the keyboard, use the pedals and much more.  It is unlikely that a person will be able to learn to play the piano on their own without any instruction.  However, there are a variety of resources available to help people learn how to play the piano, including:

  • DVDs.  Learn from the comfort of your own home with instructional DVDs that teach different notes on the keyboard, finger positioning and more.
  • Books.  Read up on the latest piano playing techniques to help you get started.
  • Piano tutor.  Private lessons from a piano teacher are probably the most effective and efficient way to learn how to play the piano.  With one-on-one instruction a tutor will teach beginners the fundamentals of piano playing and continue working with students as they advance.
