She is wonderful! She helped my teenage son, who had never sung before get a part in the high school musical. She is always prepared, on time, and able to coach the best out of even the shyest of students. She worked tirelessly with my son on improving his voice, knowledge of music and he tryout piece. I would recommend her to anyone who has always wanted to sing but doesn't think he or she can. My son is proof that Gfire can help anyone improve their voice and be confident enough to not only sing in public but get the part.

She is fantastic! She is very knowledgeable and does a great job of explaining things. She's also very supportive and fun. I've only taken a few lessons so far, but I feel like I've already learned so much and I can't wait to learn more. I'm not that great with computer stuff, so I was kind of uneasy about using online lessons at first, but it's been much easier than I thought and Gfire has been very helpful and understanding about that aspect, too. I wish I'd discovered this option for lessons a long time ago, and I absolutely recommend Gfire!

I had no piano experience prior to starting my lessons with Gfire, except for some sight reading from choir. Now, 2 years in, I feel I am going strong, thanks to her weekly lessons and support. She is patient and identifies areas for more focus. I would recommend Gfire looking for a fun and consistent teacher.

My three granddaughters and I are taking lessons with Ben. I asked each of the girls to give me three words about Ben and we all agreed. He is patient, fun and funny and, they added, "I really like him and he knows a lot about teaching and playing the piano." I was a teacher and professor for many years, and I know good teaching when I see it. Ben is a very good teacher. Not only is he patient and at ease with his students, he seems always to be aware of each of them and able to respond to their needs. I'm impressed and feel fortunate to have found someone who is also responsible and reliable, and takes his work seriously. It is a great pleasure to work with Ben and we all look forward to our weekly lesson.

Top notch teacher

My son has been taking lessons from Ben now for a little over a month. I cannot say enough about the professionalism and reliability of Ben. I figured it would take a lot to keep a 16 year old boy who is a beginner totally interested in piano but Ben has managed to do just that. My son actually looks forward to his weekly lessons and practices without hesitation and I can only attribute that to the teaching techniques of Ben. If anyone is contemplating on choosing Ben for their or their child's instructor, hesitate no further. He is one of the best.

Amadou C. Chicago, IL

Have you ever been concerned about your recent SAT test scores? Have you ever wanted to score within the top percentiles? If so, you've come to the right place. I have a host of strategies, tactics and tips that exploit every nook, cranny and loophole in the math, reading, writing and physics portions of the tests. In a tentative amount of time, your scores will ameliorate by the hundreds as I demonstrate fun ways to learn the 'hackneyed' vocabulary that plague sentence completion, effective ways to solve the most 'aberrant' math problems, and novel ways to improve your efficacy in the most 'monotonous' passages in the reading section. I also provide the most effective study methods that you will need for your upcoming test and I bring a host of enlightening study guides and references that give pertinent practice tests and a gamut example problems. With my strategies at your disposal, it'll be a breeze when you get that score you deserve and 'stalemate the SAT'.

About Amadou

~ 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 ...

What a better review than one that comes from a parent. Parents know the value of education and when looking for revision or acquisition of skills for their child: they look for safe, good and economical instruction. Amadou has a safe location for instruction and the best fees for quality instruction. And just a bit about quality: Amadou makes even learning the hardest of math and science subjects fun for children. He has mastered an approach that is quite easy for children to grasp the most difficult subjects and achieve better grades, understanding and confidence.

What a wonderful experience. My son is moving into the 7th grade and I wanted him to have a insight to the next level of math and sciences. After my sons initial consultation and testing, Amadou made some topic suggestions (algebra and Chemistry) and I was truly impressed with his understanding of exactly where my son was and what he needed. But most importantly after 3 weeks my son has grasped the concepts taught by Amadou, he is happy and incredibly he looks forward to going to tutoring and it's the middle of summer. That's spectacular for me as a parent.
