About Joseph

When I first started playing music it was a compulsion. There were some old paint buckets in the backyard of my parent’s house and I had found a pair of plastic sticks that came with a set of toy electronic drums (I had few younger siblings). I played until the sticks eventually broke. I realized

So much more than a teacher - Ray has become a mentor to my daughter. He not only teaches her the technics of reading and performing music, but encourages her to grow professionally. Most importantly, his excitement and love of music make the lessons so much fun - I hear the (laughing and) improvement in her voice during every lesson.
Edward K.
Thoroughly enjoyed a great experience, fully met my expectations and more.

Studying is serious business. We will write essays. We will analyze passages. We will laugh in the face of all that is boring about standardized tests.

Ultimately, my paradigm as a teacher will be to make myself progressively unnecessary.

About Simeon

The most important attributes of any teacher are empathy and patience. I currently attend Harvard University and work as a professional writer and tutor. I've lived all over the United States, although I grew up in Scotland of all places. My scores on the SAT and ACT were perfect (1600 and 36 res

Words cannot express how awesome Simeon is....but here is an attempt. As parents, my wife and I cannot say enough great things about Simeon. Our child was preparing for his second attempt at the SAT's. Our child has a 4.0 GPA but did not do as well as he would have liked on the SAT's his first time. Our son was hesitant at first to work with a tutor since he thought he could prepare on his own and improve his score but as parents, we decided he needed outside help. That's when we found Simeon. Our son not only increased his SAT scores by almost 100 points in a very short window, but he extremely enjoyed his time with Simeon. Now that he and Simeon no longer meet on a weekly basis our son misses his time with Simeon. Simeon is extremely intelligent and has a way of explaining the concepts in a manner that anyone can understand. Simeon truly cares about the students he works with. We have another child entering high school next year and you better believe if he needs any tutoring Simeon will be getting a call.

Very intellectual and patient ... Cares and wanted to help .
Sadie
Simeon has been an absolutely invaluable resource for my SAT prep. His encouragement is appropriately supplemented by challenging material and (appropriately) challenging expectations. He manages to make studying for the SAT fun rather than a laborious task and I could not recommend him more.

Hello!

I am a graduate from The College of New Jersey with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and with a specialization in Biopsychology. Having been a honors/Dean's List student throughout my high school and college career, I am qualified and prepared to help you understand anything and everything you need to know about Psychology. In my experience, I have spent two years with my college's Tutoring Center as a tutor in Psychology, helping students from anything in introductory classes to complex level theory and application. I have also spent two years as a Research Assistant in a laboratory studying Memory and Aging and have presented my research numerous times at various conferences, including the Eastern Psychological Association. I believe that students learn best through truly understanding the core of the subject matter and how it relates to everything else that they have learned, which is why my approach to teaching is always student-focused and never about strictly memorizing

Having a really busy schedule, I thought at first this was an indulgence to have a class in the comfort of my own home, however I've rethought that since I've started. These are necessary to keeping, not just my physique in shape, but my ballet up to par, as well as my mental state of being calm, focused & happy.

"I was very pleased that Taylor offered Skype lessons, but I was a bit worried whether I could learn in this format or not. To my surprise, it was exceptionally easy and rewarding! Currently, Taylor and I are working on a piece that I am composing for my short film. Of course, as a newbie, I knew nothing about Apple’s Logic Pro X when I began, but Taylor took her time to explain just how the software worked, as well as the techniques I needed for scoring my film. I highly recommend Taylor and the very convenient Skype format! You won’t be disappointed."

4 Fundamental Tap Dance Steps for Beginners

Good dancers can make even the most complicated, strenuous techniques look effortless and fluid. If you've ever watched an experienced dancer perform a tap routine, you probably watched in disbelief as their feet turned into a blur of movement that seemed to move independently from the rest of their body. Sometimes the sound effects are even more impressive; when done well, tap dance is a musical art form that creates its own rhythm. Do you want to train your own feet to create this unique mixt …
