Music Director of the Chicago Philharmonia Orchestra since 1985, Farobag has also served as Managing Director of the University of Chicago Performing Artists Series from 1989 through 2002 and principal conductor of its resident professional ensembles. A skilled interpreter of Baroque literature as well, Farobag continues in his capacity as Artistic Advisor to the Baroque Masterplayers, a virtuoso ensemble that concatenates period performance techniques with modern instruments thus creating a unique voice within the realm of 17th and 18th- century repertoire.
A double graduate of the Eastman School of Music and the University of Rochester, Farobag studied under Anastasia Jempelis, a pioneer of Suzuki violin pedagogy in the United States.
Befitting his penchant for encouraging artistic interest amongst younger members of his community, Farobag is also the principal conductor of the Zoroastrian Symphony Orchestra that offers a unique mixture of young and seasoned professionals sitting side-by-side in a strictly professional setting. Since the year 2000, the ZSO has staged highly successful performances at various venues in Houston, Chicago, and Toronto.
Having also taken graduate-level coursework in educational psychology, mathematics, and philosophy at the University of Chicago, Farobag offers tutelage in various areas of elementary and secondary education as well as in SAT, ACT and GRE test preparation.
Additionally, as a certified Reiki Master, therapeutic and/or educational sessions are also extended to those who may be inclined to alternative healing techniques.
*** Lesson Details ***
Sheer technique is necessary but insufficient to play an instrument well. Aural skills, that include the study of functional tonality and voice-leading are important factors that impart musicality. This is of great import if the prospective musician wants the audience to truly enjoy his or her performance !
Whether it be the 3 Rs or preparation in the performing arts, a remarkable instructor must go well beyond the subject matter at hand and help imbue the student with a spirit of wonder that, in due time, will foster enthusiasm necessary for excellence.
A child emulates and learns to communicate in his or her mother-tongue through a supporting and nurturing environment. Likewise, a student needs to be sufficiently motivated to embrace learning in a familiar supportive manner.
*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lesson take place in the living room. Driveway parking. No pets.
*** Travel Equipment ***
None; I do expect a reasonably good piano / keyboard at a student's home.
*** Specialties ***
*Teachers marked as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25

I am a graduate of Kansas State University and I am currently attending dental school at Midwestern University in Downers Grove. I have experience tutoring biology at the college level, and worked for two years as a teaching assistant. I love spending my free time learning everything I can about science, politics, and even appropriate grammar.
I have seven years of experience teaching piano to students ranging from 4 to 54 years of age. I knew when I was three that I wanted to play piano, and I love teaching others so that they can experience the same joy that I feel when I sit down to play. I started playing organ at the age of 14, and was playing for my church congregation by 16. In addition to my own recitals and competitions, I have played for a number of church and school choirs, vocal and instrumental soloists, weddings, funerals, and so on. I studied piano and organ at Kansas State University while completing a degree in biology prior to entering dental school. I currently enjoy playing for the children at church and accompanying my beautiful wife who plays flute.
I started learning Spanish while living as a child in Panama. I also studied Spanish throughout grade school. I became fluent while living in Peru for two years during my college years. I often work with Spanish-speaking patients as part of my dental education.

Hello, my name is Susie N., and I have taught in elementary and middle schools for 9 years. I have also tutored in the past and currently tutor a fifth grader in math. My favorite subject to tutor is Algebra 1, Pre Algebra, and Elementary Math, but I enjoy tutoring other subjects as well.

I am a French student at Loyola University Chicago. I have an extensive background teaching and tutoring others, especially in ESL, English, French, and special education. I also have additional experience tutoring many other subjects, such as Spanish, elementary education, biology, pre-calculus, essay writing, and history.
I have a true love of tutoring and helping others. I work well with children and adults of all ages. Thank you for sharing your interest in learning!

~ I am a Millennium Academy graduate who breaks down all of the complexities that are found throughout math and science. I have also taught many middle-school children math and science overseas and participated in several volunteer mentoring programs throughout my community.
I personally love geometry, because it is one of the easiest, but yet most challenging to students. I am patient and understanding, because I have worked with a diversity of people over the span of 16 countries throughout the world, as well as contributing to an 'A' that my doctoral student earned in her statistics assignment. I am majoring in mechanical engineering, so naturally, I maintain an exemplary study ethic that inspires my students to achieve more.
All in all, I bring results. I know how to relate to my students, by incorporating some of the things that they like (sports, hobbies, music, etc...) into their most challenging courses in order for them to eventually foster a passion for them. I make a conscious effort to work at each student's own paste, essentially building up on their weak points and refining their strong ones. I make sure I decompose enigmatic topics into components the can be more easily gestated by my students, effectively increasing their grades and giving them self-confidence and optimism for their future of academic pursuit. I guarantee commitment, punctuality, and a passion for training my students to be the best.
I am also freshman in college who loves sharing his knowledge with others. I was always the kid in class who was always trying to make all of the rest understand. In my junior year, I tutored Seniors math for their ACT test. I scored a 30 myself. Their scores improved by huge margins in a fortnight due to their devotion to my tutoring methods. Although I am young, I am also well learned. I have been to over 16 countries in the world, including France, the UK and even Djibouti in the horn of Africa. As a result of these extended expeditions, I can fluently speak French and can partially speak Spanish. I am well versed in math and in the natural sciences (Physics, Chemistry and Biology) as well, and provide tutoring services in those fields. I have completed AP Calculus in my senior year, and I have completed Chemistry II, Physics II and Biology II(I also tutor in those fields, as well as French) during my voyages. I have also been to winner of many STEM-related competitions, by demonstrating exemplary leadership qualities and brainstorming up blue-sky ideas. I am a Mental-math prodigy and a great tutor, and I am the paragon of patience and understanding. Watch as you astound yourself by rapidly taking the reins in your previously 'toughest' courses. ~
As I mentioned above, I have traveled to many places in the world. Between those places I've met a plethora of people who fostered vast disparities in personality, opinion, socio-political viewpoints and even language. Nevertheless, they all shared one common similarity: they all had potential. Many of the great thinkers in our textbooks were not born with the abilities that we so vividly depict them with. Many of them had innate talents and potentials that were honed by individuals. These 'Individuals' unveiled the hidden talents of these prestigious polymaths, which paved the way to their memorial legacies. In its most fundamental definition, these 'individuals' were tutors. Like a hammer and anvil to steel, they molded these seemingly innocuous characters to be the Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton and George Washington Carver, we all know so well. They sat on the shoulders of Giants per se. And I intend to elevate my students to those shoulders.
