I've excelled in English my whole life. When I was in middle school, I received a grade of (13+; beyond high school level) on the Ohio state proficiency tests. I specialize in spelling, reading, writing, grammar, punctuation, poetry, and proofreading.
I excel in English, as it is my minor in college for my undergraduate degree, and I am a teaching assistant at Kent State University. Feel free to observe my profile and check out all of my qualifications, which I have been tested through WyzAnt.
On the additional writing composition section that is optional on the ACT, I scored a 10 on a scale of 2-12. I excel in English above all, and this is hands down my favorite subject. I want to help others who have a difficult time in any English related subjects.
I was in middle school/high school choir for a total of six years, combined with lessons from family members and friends in the band. I joined a band in high school in which I shifted positions between lead vocalist to drums. I play multiple instruments including piano, guitar, drums, ukulele, etc. I am more than happy to help a person(s) understand the general concepts of music, how it came to be, why our music is the way it is today, and any thing else under the sky that categorizes. Basically, if anyone has questions about music, I've got the answer and can help!
I've been playing acoustic/electric guitar for seven years now, and am self- taught. I have the talent to play by ear. Understanding the basics for guitar is the main objective. I can help with studying and memorizing scales, string order, string picking or chord strumming, how to re-string a guitar, how to store it when not in use, how and when to use a tuner and alternatives if you don't have one. How to run a sound check is important for playing shows/live. If someone also sings and plans to accompany themselves with their guitar, we can go over ways to reroute a sound check/set up, set list, rules for unplugged performances, and the best ways to maintain control.
I've been playing piano for 6 years now. Tutoring will include, all important skills and basic principles, how to play with both hands simultaneously, assistance so with multi-tasking, introducing simple and popular pieces of work, discover of middle C and its means on a piano, the classic scale and letters, how many keys of each color, reason for seating and foot pedals, proper posture for body, hands, and fingers, and maintenance of elegance for performances.
I am a singer and I began singing when I was four. I auditioned for American Idol in 2012 (completing the second round) and auditioned for The Voice in 2014 (completing the fourth round). I have a smorgasbord of videos across web media. I was in a band in high school where I was the lead vocalist in an all boy band. I play live, unplugged covers and some original pieces at coffee houses/shops, also upon invitation. I partake in karaoke night at local bars/restaurants. I want to help others who want to learn how to sing, control their breathing, low and high pitches, differences between chest and head voice and how to appropriately switch between them while maintaining a smooth tone. In addition, vocal projection is important and so is pitch. I'd really like to help those who are tone deaf, and help them stray from that.
I've taken ASL 1, 2, and 3. I've attended deaf seminars, public meetings, signing-song contests, and deaf coffee shop events. I tutor in all the basic rules, do's and don'ts in the American Sign Language, point of view and signer's perspective, the alphabet, idioms, figures of speech, special phrases, storytelling, and counting dollars and cents.
Ballet is a common yet elegant and graceful form of art. I was a ballerina in my teenage years, and can assist/teach anyone interested in learning more about the dance or specific moves such as a pirouette, aplomb, pli?, j?t?, arabesque, saut?, chass?, etc.
I've been working with children in a speech therapy unit for three years now. I absolutely love it. I love seeing their faces light up upon their success and relief from frustration. More importantly, their parents are so thankful because they lost hope in ever finding a solution for their children. There's always hope, so don't give up! I'm here to help.
I've been composing music, studying the history of music, and why music came to be what it is today. Over generations music has grown and changed dramatically and the turnout is astounding. However, understanding music is an important factor in learning about musical pieces and their composers; Mozart, Beethoven, etc. I've sang and played instruments ever since I was physically able and enjoy sharing that passion with others. I write music, I compose instrumental pieces with different instruments and I work to string them together and create works of art. I use programs such as GarageBand, Starmaker, and Smule Karaoke to record and compose musical pieces, and I then add my lyrics.
I have very neat handwriting, and would be more than willing to help pass that on. Print AND cursive. Writing paces, fonts, sizes, eras, line thickness, context, different ways to write and shape letters and numbers, visual necessities, penmanship vitality, and last but not least, symbols/different languages. My biggest goal is to help those who have very sloppy/illegible handwriting.
