James and I worked together for 4 months at an elementary school tutoring 3-5 graders in math and english. James is professional, intelligent, and creative. It was a pleasure working with him. He cares very much for the youth in our community.
We've stayed in touch via email and are developing a friendship I hope lasts a life time. He is good people.

We've only had one session so far, but Amy really knows her content. She assessed my 8 year old son's reading/spelling/vocab skills quickly and accurately and was very kind and engaging during the session. I feel confident he'll be at the level we want him to be by the start of the school year.

Lessons would be individualized to focus on areas that need the most guidance.

About Melissa
I have been teaching since 2006 on a variety of topics. I graduated with an BA from the University of Wisconsin. My degree is in History with and emphasis on East Asian history.

I've taught all age groups from age 2 up to retirees. My teaching experience includes one-on-one and group classes in a variety of settings. I've taught corporate classes, private lessons, small groups, and traditional classroom lessons.

We have a student-centric philosophy of learning. Lessons are generally relaxed and designed to work towards accomplishing student determined goals. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. Special focus on topics like music theory, self-accompaniment, composition, song writing, and home recording are available as well.


What are your personal goals? We'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.

Lessons with small children are more focused on just having fun while developing a good musical foundation, but we prefer for them to have as much personal ownership of their lesson as possible.

East Stroudsburg, PA

From grade school to college, I enjoyed and excelled in the subject of English grammar. I am a mother of four and a teacher, and have had decades of experience teaching grammar to others, including preparing kids for specialized tests such as the SAT. Grammar is the foundation or building blocks that students need in order to speak and write effectively, and this is where every student should start if they are ever to master effective written and verbal skills.

About Anne-Marie
Hi, I'm Anne-Marie and I love to teach! I have been teaching for over 25 years and whether the subject is English, Music, College Prep or Italian, I love helping students reach their goals. I work hard to leave my students enlightened, encouraged and empowered. I have high standards and I really like to challenge students to achieve their full potential, but I also try to make the process interesting, engaging and fun. I'm patient, easygoing and I enjoy working with students of all ages and backgrounds. I always strive to get to know my students (and their needs) very well. Then I customize lessons according to need, aptitude and goals. One of the best parts of teaching for me is meeting and connecting with new people, and making a difference in their lives, so I really look forward to meeting and working with you!

To many, the rules of grammar may seem annoying or limiting since they can come across as arbitrary. But after studying the roots of English -- Latin, French, German, Old Norse, Old English, Greek -- it actually makes a lot of sense! It isn't necessary for *you* to learn all those languages (I've already done all the hard work for you!), but I'm the ideal person to guide you since I can explain the reasons behind the rules. Understanding "why" is the most effective path to mastering grammar.

And because I think it's a lot of fun, my infectious enthusiasm will inspire you as well!

About Luke
I am deeply passionate about sharing knowledge with others and have been lucky to be teaching my entire adult life. There are so many enriching experiences available to us when we learn more about the world.

Foreign languages are among my favorites, and I have specialized in teaching Latin, Italian, and Japanese. As a geologist, I am also profoundly interested in the sciences. When I teach I like to understand where my students are coming from, what really inspires them, and help them to enjoy and love what they want to learn. For me, learning is always fun, so whether you like to study or you are having trouble motivating yourself to concentrate, together we will discover the joy and fun in what you are studying.

I've had many diverse experiences which qualify me to teach private grammar lessons at an affordable price.

I edit papers for family and friends and took Advanced Placement writing courses in high school and writing and poetry courses in college. During graduate school, I was selected as a Graduate Assistant, editing book chapters and authoring and co-authoring articles for publication. I'd love to share my passion for writing and help you develop into an accomplished writer!

About Allie
Hi, there! My name is Allie and I can't wait to meet you! I've been playing the clarinet for 15 years and teaching private lessons for a year and a half (combined experience). I have loved helping my students improve their sound, technique, and rhythm on the clarinet. I am proud to be able to teach private lessons at an affordable price. During my undergraduate degree at Ohio University, I marched in the "Most Exciting Band in the Land", the Ohio University Marching 110, which was ranked the number one marching band in the United States in 2014. I've been privileged to take private lessons under the best doctorate level instructors throughout the years. My musical enthusiasm and encouraging personality will help students to also become excited about the clarinet, making them more likely to practice and continue with the clarinet long-term

Student will be assessed and taught where they are at moving forward.

About NANCY
I received my bachelors degree from Ottawa University in 2002, in elementary education. I received my masters degree from Grand Canyon University in 2007. My masters degree is in curriculum and instruction with a focus on reading. I went back to school because I felt I could do more for students with special needs. I am currently teaching in a 4-6 grade self-contained special education classroom.

I have taught grades from 2-7 grades at different schools in Arizona. I have been working in special education for the last 5 years. I feel that I bring a unique perspective to tutoring because of my diverse background since I have started teaching.

If you have a special needs student please make sure that you share with me your students goals from their IEP at school, so that I can also help them with those skills as well.

If you have any
questions don't hesitate to ask.
