My children were first time to learn the violin today with Ms. Monica. My kids were very excited to play the violin. Ms.Monica was really kind and brilliant. My kids could play the violin well because she taught my kids very well. I am really forward to seeing her again. Thank you! :)

Orland Park, IL

A strong foundation in elementary math (arithmetic) is essential to all irrespective of age. Lessons can also be arranged through Skype.

About Farobag
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. In addition to the Suzuki curriculum, he is also associated with the Royal Conservatory Music Devel
opment Program that sets a national standard of musical achievement in various fields.

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. A New Year's eve performance in Los Angeles is scheduled for 2014.

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 ***
Traditional and Suzuki-based education. Performance and musicality training is open to all instrumentalists.

*** CD's***

Mr. cooper gives the gift of music, the learning of, the pure appreciation for the violin and its beautiful sound. I am a student who has loved this string instrument for many years and am fortunate to now have Farobag Homi Cooper as my teacher. He is guiding me to a higher level of playing then I thought I was capable of.

I am a sophomore in high school, and currently taking calculus. I have tutored and taught lower level math for several years now. I prefer to teach elementary and middle school level math but can also teach beginning high school students. Appreciate seeing example material ahead of a session in order to prepare a lesson and possibly work out several of the problems in advance.

About Nate
I am a high school student in the state of Georgia.

As a student myself I personally understand the difficulties of school, as well as the pressure that is put upon students by their teachers and parents. I realize all people learn at different paces and with different styles and really hope to be able to help.

I have taught in special needs classrooms in the past and have experience working with mentally challenged students. I am happy to make lessons specific to certain students and help complete study guides or go over a quiz/test, to help correct missed problems to avoid missing in the future.

In my free time, I like to remain physically active, by running daily, hiking, going backpacking, and competing in races and physical competitions such as mud runs and savage races. One of my biggest passions that I enjoy spending my t
ime doing is photography, I take stills, action shots, close-ups, and senior pictures for a lot of students at my school.

I am also a cadet in the US Army JROTC program, where I have become third in command for the county. I have learned to work with others even when having different opinions or views, and I have become more comfortable talking and interacting with other people.

In my future, I am attending medical school on a full ride scholarship to become a surgeon for that Army. I will spend four years in the Army, and then transfer into the civilian world as a trauma or orthopedic surgeon.

Dallas, TX

Since elementary school, I have loved math and I look to pass that passion onto my students. I have helped students in 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade learn math and grow to appreciate it. There was one person who was a mother trying to review concepts to better teach her child. After our session, she commented on how effective the session was at helping her refresh on concepts and learn a different way of solving problems, different than what they had learned in the past.

About Jamarius
I am a graduate of Alabama State University and have a Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics. I have years of experience helping students in the ASU mathematics lab. I also have experience tutoring high school students as part of the ASPIRE Mentoring Program and I have tutored elementary and middle school students as well. Topics that I have tutored include basic math, pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, and calculus.

While tutoring at ASU, I have modified my tutoring style to provide better service. What happens is that during the first few sessions, I get to know each person and some things about the course that they are taking such as the syllabus content, the type of grade the person wants in the course, the number of points each assignment is worth, and the date of the next major test. I then try to hold tutoring sessions in accordance w
ith this information. During a session, I go over homework, explain concepts that may be misunderstood, go over topics that I think are especially important, and sometimes give practice problems. I do a lot of visual explanations for concepts. Periodically, I would ask about the grade that was made on a recent test and modify my tutoring style if necessary. My goal is to help everyone that I tutor strengthen their mathematical skills.

Usually, I tutor by appointment and each session usually lasts for about 1 hour. In order to reschedule or cancel an appointment, I request a 24-hour notice. I am willing to meet in a public place or online.

I also make videos that cover math concepts in order to make it a little easier for students to get the information that they need to be successful. If you would like for me to make a video, please let me know!

Please contact me and we can get started.
