My teaching methods are kinesthesia and realia, however the other methods don’t stop me, if you learn better from a text book I’ll design your lesson plan around you. I don't speak in monotones and I love to play games to get everyone to learn the lessons I am trying to get across to them. Kinesthesia and Realia are the feeling of real objects to get the point across.
Even if you're a great performer with great material and a loyal following, in the constantly-changing landscape of the modern world it can be every more difficult to make a living. I have reinvented my business model several times in order to adapt, and I can teach you how to do it, too.
Whether your goal is to master an instrument or become a great songwriter, it's mostly about immersing yourself in the music you love, and lots of woodshedding. However, occasional coaching sessions to keep you going in the right directions can be extremely useful. That's what I offer.
My method is realia and kinisthesia which literally means to learn by touch. I bring things on and teach you by touch and feel.
Find out where the student is in their skills and begin there, building fundamentals with proficiency before moving on.

Preconceived notions of what an essay - or any piece of writing - needs to be can have such a paralyzing effect that some students never get past the blank page. Students constantly underestimate themselves, dismissing what they believe is "too obvious" to put on the page.
I like to make my lessons fun by offering rewards to my students who work hard and show me that they are trying their best. However, while I can be a fun teacher I do take the learning outcomes of my students seriously. I make sure to spend extra time with my students who struggle more than others.
I have a broad range of teaching experience, from teaching sociological material to fellow college-aged students in seminar classes to teaching photography skills to children living in a group foster home, and from teaching rock climbing skills (knots, safety, gear types, etc.) to 7-16 year olds to leading debriefs of academic visits across Europe while working for DIS- Study Abroad in Scandinavia.
I do work all the aspects that involve learning a language: speaking, reading, listening and writing. My teaching experiences in Spain, Poland, and Italy and with different ages and cultural backgrounds have strongly shaped my teaching method. I truly enjoy engaging with students and make them take an active role in a stimulating learning environment.
I have taught in a physical classroom, a museum, an outdoor environmental school, and GED classes. My preference is to teach using brain-based learning strategies, debate and critical thinking. I specialize in using learning strategies based on research for the whole learner.
I tend to approach my classes using lectures, discussions, and project-based learning so that all of my students feel comfortable learning. My students range from children in kindergarten to university students, however, most of my students tend to be in High School.
I am willing to teach any level of history or geography from all introductory levels to undergraduate courses, provided they are pertaining to European history. I like to target exactly what the individual is confused on and work from the background up until that point.
I cater to what my student's interests are and am happy to take suggestions for material they'd like to learn in lessons. At the same time, I feel it's my responsibility to draw from my background as a music professional and show the student material they may be unaware of.
I planned my daily lessons, depending on the university or government agencies, on an official outline as well as personal methodologies. During this time, I would have the classes form into groups, facing one another, and would hand each group a subject with information studied the previous day, for which the previous day's study and practice would result in intuitive responses automatically.
In my experiences and innovative teaching methods, I can give lessons for (diploma, level, class, characteristics, etc.).

I am good listener and have strong communicating with students, and friendly personality.

Coursework included: calculus, vector calculus, ODEs, PDEs, linear algebra, abstract algebra, analysis, and topology. PhD candidate in philosophy, with formal logic emphasis.
I believe in a visual methodology that leads to deeper understanding along with algebraic skills necessary to succeed. This may at first be harder but it leads to higher test scores. Generally I try to search for the simplest and most intuitive way to approach any topic.
I can teach at any level of difficulty. I am extremely knowledgeable of music theory. I have a background in Classical music and received a Minor in piano performance. I can also play rock, pop and alternative music. I have performed in many venues for many occasions.

I have been speaking Spanish since I was 12. My college coursework included literature and linguistics courses. Being a musician, I have a strong ear for the sounds and rhythm of the language, and I have all kinds of little tricks for helping students to break this stuff down.
Mathematics is an area where a lot of people have difficulty and its an academic subject that I find personally captivating. When you run into a wall with the subject or feel overwhelmed its helpful to have a patient and knowledgeable guide.
