About Bridget
I have been a professional voice, music theory and piano teacher for the last ten years, and have loved every minute of it. I am originally from Canada, and went to the University of Windsor to study vocal performance. I was given an opportunity to the study principals of classical singing and musical theater. From there, I began to work as a featured classical soloist and choral singer throughout Canada. I came to New York to continue my studies, and earned a Master of Music degree in Classical Voice from the Manhattan School of Music.

I believe that singing lessons should be a lot of fun. With good technique, my students and I can team up to accomplish anything from singing classical songs and even some opera arias to popular songs and musical theater. It is my goal to help you discover your own personal voice, and build confidence
in your individual gifts. My students have gone on to study voice in college and university, perform in musical theater, sing in rock bands, children and adult choirs and even win a competition or two. I love hearing my students perform, and feel that an opportunity to sing in front of others builds confidence and ability. I take pride in arranging recitals for my students who would like this opportunity.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons with always begin with warm ups and technique. We'll also focus on an important principal topic, such as breath and support, vowel placement or expression. We'll use some exercises that I have already, or perhaps a new one just for your needs (once I get to know your voice) to help you achieve our goals. We'll then work on 1-2 songs. You'll probably have picked one, and I may have picked one. The concept that we worked on in our technique session will be applied directly to the songs you are working on. You can learn so many different things in each song, we may practice your songs, using a different goal in several different lessons.
All of my students get a chance to perform in occasional "vocal class" settings, where you can sing your favorite songs for one another, in a fun, laid back environment. All students are welcome to participate in an annual recital for their family and friends too! Piano lessons are designed to suit your needs. We can work on the basics for classical playing, read chords, jazz improv and more.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have my own music studio set up in my apartment. On teaching days, my living room can be a comfortable waiting room for parents/guardians. You are all most welcome to relax, have a cup of tea or coffee and listen to our lessons. I do ask that you do not sit inside the studio (at least not after the first lesson) as this can be distracting for your child. My studio is equipped with a music stand, upright piano, work sheets for theory, pencils and crayons. I also have a full Broadway and classical music library that students can borrow from, CD/DVD's that can be borrowed, and a New Grove Reference set.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring some music, until we assess the student's needs, then they may buy some books, while I provide the rest. I bring theory worksheets, stickers, pencils etc. If a student would like to sing/play a particular song (Broadway/pop etc) I may have it in my music library.If I do not, the student will need to purchase the music they would like to sing. The student would need a keyboard/piano in their home should I travel. I have a piano in my home.

*** Specialties ***
Classical singing, Musical Theater, Jazz, music for young children, pop singing, audition preparation, beginning music for adults.

Feedback on Bridget H.

I have take several lessons with Bridget and find her to be beyond superb! Her teaching style is clear, comprehensive and has already begun to make its impact on my singing. She is encouraging and provides good constructive feedback that benefits her students. I am so happy that we connected and I hope this is the beginning of a long learning relationship.

This is a class for Russian speakers to learn English.
My very first student was Russian-speaking, to whom I taught English. I am fluent in both languages, and enjoy assisting others in their language learning process!
Contact me if you have any questions!

About Julia
Hi! My name is Julia A. I have been tutoring students of all ages and skill levels at learning centers, colleges, libraries and schools since 2008.

My instruction extends nationwide, with students from all corners of the US, utilizing online tutoring services such as Skype.

My main field of study is in MATH (trig, algebra, geometry, precalculus), CHEMISTRY (high school and college), and PHYSICS (high school and college).

I completed my Bachelors in Physics and Mathematics Education at Hunter University and have gained experience with both in-person and online group instruction and curriculum development.

Some examples of the students I have tutored are: Elementary school students preparing for State competitions and exams; High school and College students in preparance for entrance exams, and in subjects such as algebra, geom
etry, trig, precalc, chemistry and physics.

I do Regents and SAT/ACT prep for these subjects as well as the GRE (These are NYS based High School Preparatory Exams - do not hesitate to ask should you need assistance with the ones offered in your state/country).

In addition, I am thorough and meticulous, by paying special attention to how the student grasps information and retains it, I prepare individualized handwritten reviews, with supplemental material found online and in texts.

I assign homework to keep my students ahead of what is going on in class, and a visual and intuitive understanding of the concepts I present is important to me, so I use visual aids (diagrams and interactive models) to help my students integrate what they learn with me in real life situations.

My instruction includes:
1. Tutoring based on the school curriculum
2. Instruction on the home-schooling curriculum
3. Assisting those with a gap in going back to school/university.

I start with an assessment based on what the student has trouble with or last remembers covering in school, and prepare material going from there.

As a result, my students all have improved grades without any need for cramming before tests, and I encourage a stress-free and easygoing learning environment.

My lessons are fun and enthusiastic - these subjects are beautiful and will help open your mind to new ways of thinking - whatever your field of study!

Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools.
I see marked improvements in their grades for this past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise.
Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough.

I'm in a fast paced trig course at my uni, and we've covered things I never did in high school. I did 5 lessons over skype with Julia, and know I've found a keeper. She sends stuff to practice on in advance and has me work with her like I would with my professor. She comes up with practice based on my weakest areas and never shortens time. I don't even have to ask for review material because she assigns hw to work on, and basically, I'm a master at graphing now.

I understand the difficulties of learning English, especially when coming from a completely different language such as Mandarin Chinese or Cantonese. As I learn more about the Chinese language, I've learned how to break the communication and cultural barriers.

I'd love to help improve English speaking, writing, communication, and overall understanding of the English language, specifically tailored for native Chinese speakers.

Whether it's for English as a second language or College level papers, English is nothing more than a few words with rules on how to put them together, then once you learn them, you can creatively arrange them together to even make beautiful works of literature. I will break down your problem areas and make sure you have a strong grasp on what needs improvement. I learn languages for fun, English being the second language I learned and became fluent in, so I can help non-natives more than most because I can relate to their mistakes and may even have learned their language. I also work as a Freelance Copywriter and I have two minors in creative writing and copy writing that I got when I was getting my BFA in Graphic Design, so if you want to write copy or write creatively I will be more than happy to help.

About Moataz
I am a Freelance Graphic Designer living in Stamford, Connecticut. I love learning and teaching, like a lot. I teach languages, Lettering, branding, and the basics of Graphic design as well as the adobe programs that bring it to life.

My promise to you is that I will teach you everything I know in the time I'm given and provide you with all sorts of outside resources to get you on your way to fluency and proficiency.

I'll make sure to do my absolute best to get you speaking a new language from day one, learning a Design program immediately, or teaching you how to letter with the rules they don't teach you in school. And best of all, I'll even show you how to actually make money with all of these.

I have a very unique journey into learning where I experienced many places and got a fresh and different understanding to the many su
bjects that I teach. For example my knowledge of multiple languages and travel to different countries gave me an added knowledge of linguistics that I experienced first hand and confirmed in books, so now I know how languages work, and can relate a concept from one language to another even if the languages seem completely different.

My Design work has been very general so I've done a lot of different things before I specialized in hand lettering, so I've done it all from advertisements on billboards to website design and development, to copywriting, to branding from start to finish for companies big and small.

My love for lettering and Calligraphy emerged when I started getting more Logos for client work and my exploration of type wasn't the best answer most of the time so I would letter everything myself, and the rest is history.

I am really passionate about learning and even more passionate about sharing what I've learned. I am efficient, I know what works for different people since I taught in classrooms and tutored way before I knew about Takelessons, and I'm most proud of being praised as a very genuine person. A very common compliment I get is that I sincerely want my students to do well. And it makes me really happy every time someone says it, and I hope that one day you see that and tell me the same thing.

Feel free to find out more about me and ask me anything you want, and I really look forward to one day teach you something that will get you to achieve your goals! :)

Just so there are no surprises, I raise my prices very slightly every 3 months, next time it will go up is on March 3rd 2017. The reason for this is because I get better and more efficient at teaching as time goes by, so that hour that you get now is much more packed with value than the same hour last year or last month.

Hi y'all! I'm a licensed English/ESL teacher in Texas, and I have taught ESL/Language Arts all over the world (Hungary, Croatia, Italy, Mexico, and South Korea). I do not specialize in a special age group or skill level; I can help everyone from kindergarten to college, beginner to advanced. I made lessons engaging and fun, while using real-life practice examples. Through my 8 years of experience, I have helped hundreds of students strengthen their English skills, and I'd love to help you too.

About Genevieve
Being a licensed teacher in the State of Texas in both English/Language Arts, Reading, and ESL, I feel incredibly comfortable working with students of any age and skill level. I'm fully versed in state standards and expectations for students and I'm capable of helping you develop your skills!

Here's a bit about my teaching experience:
After graduating from Washington State University with a BA in English. I moved to Gyula, Hungary, where I taught ESL to 10-19 year olds at a local middle/high school. After two wonderful years there, I moved to Budapest, Hungary to teach American Culture/ESL at a prestigious technological high school, while I simultaneously earned my MA in International Relations and European Studies from Central European University. From there, I spent the next 4 years traveling the world teaching English to students o
f all ages. I particularly enjoyed working with kindergarteners in South Korea and Hospitality College students in Mexico.

I Have completed Advanced College level English courses. I know a bit of basic Espanol'. I can also teach different Accents'. I'm a very easy going person, and those who have learned technique's and skills which can be invaluable to someone from those who just very basic English, to those who need to know what kind vocabulary an tone to use during an interview, as well the attitude to carry with you when you go in for an interview. I'm well traversed in all areas of the English language; punctuation, grammar, vocabulary, you name it. I'm at your service, for a very low price :)

About Josh
I have studied English at GSCC(Gadsden State Community College), a nationally accredited organization. I can teach you or your child/children very basic English taught in grammar school, all the way to English taught in higher learning institutions today. Due to bills and a family to support I had to pick up a second shift job at Honda MFG. of Alabama, so my misfortune is your gain.

For a fraction of the cost the other tutors teach English for. You or your chosen student/students can get quality English lessons for far less then someone who has graduated for music, singing or similar fields of study.

The curriculum will start with an examination performed by me personally to assess where your on the English spectrum, as well as where we should start your lessons. I will give my personal contact information for simple questions you may
have along the way.

Even if your an immigrant or foreign exchange student, all you need is a basic enough understanding of the English language to learn more advanced vocabulary, grammar or punctuation.
