About Margo

Are you ready to fall in love with your voice? Are you ready for something different? If your voice isn’t becoming to you, YOU should be coming to ME!

I know what it's like to be frustrated with boring exercises and processes that seem to take a lot of time but yield no results. That's why I decided to teach DIFFERENTLY!

I've invested a lot of time, energy, emotion and $$$ on big-name schools and "experts", only to be disappointed with what I was taught because a lot of the information or techniques they employed simply didn't apply to me or my goals.

Since 1997, I have perfected the K.I.S.S. methodology to improve sales, stage performance, professional advancement and overall quality of life. My effectiveness and willingness to guarantee my work sets me worlds apart from every other professional in my field. Furthermore,

I have been named "Top Producer" in EVERY sales and management position held and have won first place in every singing and speech competition EVER entered since 1991. However, with my accolades, I am humble, easy-going and take a light-hearted and humorous approach to my coaching sessions.

At an early age, I was taught the importance of working "smart" and not "hard." Efficiency and effectiveness were the order of every day.
As the daughter of a Master Herbalist/musician (mother) and bodybuilder/ musician/ policeman (father), wellness, discipline and the stage have always been the way of life.

As a child, I was fascinated by my mother's stories of performing with members of Earth, Wind and Fire and other famous musicians and marveled at my father's accounts of being a friend and colleague of Sergio "The Myth" Oliva (3x Mr. Olympia). These experiences piqued a strong interest in stage performance and resulted in years of training in fine arts, fitness and linguistics. I was constantly reminded that the best performers in any field are "complete packages", meaning that they are well-rounded and adept in multiple facets of their chosen field.

To become a complete package, I studied classical piano and vocal performance at Sherwood Conservatory of Music and VanderCook College of Music; martial arts (Hapkido) at Hyun's; Fashion Design and Merchandise Management at International Academy of Design & Technology; herbal medicine at The School of Natural Healing; acting and musical improvisation at ETA Theatre and The Second City; flag, rifle and sabre twirling with South Shore Drill Team and runway/print modeling at Barbizon and The Fashion Connection. I have also studied tap, liturgical, ballet, modern, salsa, ballroom and street dance; speech therapy; actively study psychology, anatomy and nutrition and am a NESTA-certified wellness coach.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each lesson is tailor-made to suit the student's individual needs. Custom action plan will be given to each student on a case-by-case basis. No instruments are used in my lessons, as I train the voice to be a standalone instrument. However, if you would like to accompany yourself with a guitar, piano or percussion instrument, you are very welcome to do so.

*Please note that 15-minute sessions are ONLY available online. In-person sessions must be a minimum of 30 minutes. 31 and 61-minute sessions are for whistle register training only.

Online Disclaimer:
When choosing online lessons, please make sure that your system is functioning properly, that you know how to use the platform, that you have a good internet connection and that you are logged in on time, as no concessions will be made for time used due to technical difficulties.

Timing Disclaimer:
Our time together is very valuable. If you are not on time for your session, the missed portion will not be made up at the end of the session. If I am not on time, I will make up the missed portion at the end of the session or alternate agreed-upon time. No exceptions or make-up sessions will be made for illness, weather, transportation issues (including car trouble), or any other short-notice reason. Rescheduled lessons must be made a minimum of 48 hours in advance and must be made up within the calendar week of the original lesson. If it is not made up within that week, it will still count as a paid session and cannot be made up at a later time.

Margo was amazing! I went to Margo to improve my speech and speaking voice. Within a few minutes of talking to me, Margo diagnosed my problem and gave me execercises to do. I saw improvements in my speech after the first session! Her fun personality made the sessions enjoyable and I walked away with helpful excercises.

About Marcel

I work as a tutor and mentor in many of those fields for years. It was and is a side business, but I always enjoyed teaching.
I am looking forward to move on with you and / or your kids.
Have a great day,
Marcel

Update 02/10/15: Takelessons is a great way to teach and a fantastic and easy way to learn for students. I currently have 3 students per week, with several hours. I really enjoy it, either online via Skype or Facetime or Live at the students place. Hit me up and let's move something together.

I learned a lot from Marcel and liked his vision of how to redo the garden. The original garden was cluttered with overlapping plants and we discussed how to improve it. He pulled out his iPad and made several garden sketches that were helpful. The original garden was cluttered with overlapping plants and we decided to remove several of them and re-"orchestrate" the remaining ones. (We only bought new plants if they were needed to realize the new garden vision.) He is also a very hard worker, helping me (physically) transplant and add plants as required. For example, we transplanted a 100+ (?) pound Sago palm across the front yard. I would never have done that on my own (too heavy for me) but together we did it! Highly recommended. Bill

Excellent teacher. We took a 20'x2' section of "dirt" in the back, redid the soil, transplanted a rose in that section, added two other new roses and a bunch of ground cover. Looks great! Recommended.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

About Rae

I am a native Mandarin Chinese speaker from northern China where Mandarin Chinese is born. I graduated from a Chinese university. I also learned how to teach a second language from a graduate school in the US with a 3.9 GPA and scholarships. I have over one year of experience teaching Mandarin Chinese as well. I have tutored school and college students who needed assistance with their Chinese homework, tests, or extra practice, and taught school students and adults that just wanted to pick up a new language. My students' age range from 8 to 80 years old. Currently, I'm studying Language and Learning focusing on teaching a second language. My passion is to be a language teacher. I think it would be awesome if I could help you learn Chinese while doing what I love.
I offer online sessions with standard Mandarin Chinese and simplified Chin

ese characters. I will provide you the learning materials, although you could send me the documents that you are interested in learning or need help with. Right now I am specialized in beginner Chinese. My availability can be found on my profile. Looking forward to hearing from you.
大家好! 我的母语是中文, 我能够准确地使用普通话和简体字。我教过中学生中文, 辅导过在校学生的中文作业, 也帮助过职场人士提高汉语水平。我在本科毕业后移民到美国, 现在在读语言习得专业。我对语言教学很有热情。如果可以在你学习汉语的过程中助你一臂之力, 那将是我的荣幸。中文并不像大家想的那么难学, 而且学起来会相当的有趣。选择一个好老师很重要。所以赶快联系我吧!如果可以,请告诉我你曾有过的任何和中文相关的学习经历,你的学习目标, 以及你想要上课的时间。我会尽我最大的努力来满足你的需求。

About Manace

Hi,
My name is Manace Balegamre. I am originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo but I moved to the United States at a young age. French is the national language in my home country so I was taught at a young age and continued to take classes throughout my educational career here in the United States in order to master the language. I am currently enrolled at Young Harris College where I give many French lessons and tutor but I am looking forward to teaching this beautiful language to a broader scale of people !

His method of teaching the rules over memorizing is excellent, and has allowed me to improve my conversational abilities much quicker than I expected. I am traveling to Greece soon and excited to test out my skills!"

French Vocabulary: 5 False Cognates to Watch Out For

By Megan L.

Cognates are words that sound similar and can mean the same thing across different languages. However, in French, there are some tricky cognates that don't mean what you might think they mean. French tutor Carol Beth L. shares five common French false cognates... Due to their similar roots, French and English share some vocabulary and grammar. La table is table, la geographie is geography, and un film is a film – otherwise known as a movie. Similar word pairs between two languages are kno …
