  • Amarillo Guitar Lessons
    From reading tablature to molding axe-wielding masters, Amarillo Guitar Lessons improves the play of aspiring guitarists of all ages and experience levels. With a music education degree from West Texas A&M University, primary instructor Tim McGaughy has been teaching since the late 1970s and has played guitar in local bluegrass bands and the Amarillo Symphony. With an individual evaluation to set a starting point, McGaughy can tutor musical neophytes and retired rockers in virtually any style, including bluegrass, folk/traditional, classical, jazz, and rock. During half-hour classes, six-stringers will learn how to tune the instrument and read musical notation, as well as how to avoid bad habits such as holding the guitar incorrectly or strumming with drumsticks. String-picking students should bring their own guitars and schedule lessons within four to six weeks of their first appointment.

  • The Math Tutor
    Established: 1969 Handicap Accessible: No Staff Size: 1 person Parking: Parking lot Reservations/Appointments: Recommended Most popular offering: Math tutoring done on an hourly basis. Pro Tip: I offer the students one-on-one MATH tutoring from my home. Q&A with Larry Williams, The MATH Tutor What makes your business stand out? I have continued to take math courses at Amarillo College so I can be a more effective tutor and offer a wide range of math tutoring. What inspired you to start tutoring math? When I was a senior in high school, my Trigonometry teacher told me I had a gift and should consider teaching or tutoring math. I made myself available as a tutor and have been doing that ever since. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? Every once in a while, a question will be asked that I have to ponder. I am thinking, "How is the best way I can explain this so they will understand the material." What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer? Most customers feel a genuine sense of relief when the "light bulb comes" on and they proclaim that they "have it," and thank me for opening their eyes. What?s your favorite part about your job? The fact that I know all of the answers they are going to ask me. And, that is something that few people can say about their jobs.
