*** 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.

I like to see the lights go on as students understand math.
My emphasis is on student understanding as opposed to memorization. I've had 25 successful and rewarding years of experience teaching math and science at the high school level.

As more and more people pursue advanced degrees, a bachelorâs degree from a four-year college may only be worth what a high school diploma was in the past. Many jobs now require an advanced degree and, regardless of the path you choose, youâll still need to take the GMAT to get into a good graduate school.
The GMAT. or Graduate Management Admission Test, contains an Analytical Writing Section, a Quantitative Section, and a Verbal Section, and if you're not familiar with the exam's structure, you can find yourself easily challenged and often frustrated. While you can attempt to take the exam without GMAT prep tutoring by employing books, pre-tests and educational materials you find online, you may still find yourself struggling to master the skills necessary to tackle the
test. This is where the benefits of a TakeLessons tutor come in.
