Excellent first lesson. Valentina was very patient but persistent in staying in Russian as much as feasible. I knew a little bit from decades ago and she helped me find the way forward again without embarrassment. I look forward to the next lessons.

About Maria
I, Maria J., graduated Summa Cum Laude with Honors College distinction from the University of South Florida, in 2014. I have seven years’ worth of tutoring experience. I have tutored students, at differing abilities and intensities, in Algebra, English, and Latin. I view learning as an accumulative experience. In my sessions, I would have two goals: one, to explain concepts and, two, to provide moments for the students to use this acquired knowledge. I believe that variability in information presentation is important to the overall success of learning. Therefore, I use various methods to convey the same information. My second goal follows closely: I would offer opportunities for students to use what they have learned. Giving them occasion to find the answer before I intercede, helps students realize where their strengths and shortcomings
are. Through a careful balance of teaching and homework, the student’s ability will increase.

About Drew
Drew is a flute student in rigorous preparation for a future career in classical music. For 15 years, he has participated in numerous music competitions, festivals, and performance opportunities, both as a soloist and part of ensembles, and actively continues to do so. He is an advocate of the arts and passionate about spreading the gift of music, which has lead him to teach over 20 students (and counting!) in just the past 2 years.

Drew graduated with a BM in Flute Performance at Brigham Young University, and continues his studies at Northwestern University, where he is projected to earn his MM in Flute Performance in 2018.

***My Vision***
I seek students who share a love of learning. I am not looking for the finest musicians or highest IQ's, because those gifts are not required to learn and grow. My greatest experiences as a tea
cher have come from when I work with students who just want to learn more.

***My Requirements***
Learning comes at a price, though. I hold my students to high expectations when it comes to practicing. Each week, I give students individual assignments that I know will improve their learning and playing abilities, and I expect those assignments to be fulfilled by the next lesson. A failure to do so will result in frustration for both myself and my student.

However, I know that nobody is perfect, and I myself have had my share of weeks where life happens, and I simply don't progress as much as I would like. As a teacher, I understand this perfectly, and I will always strive to listen to my students, and work with them through their difficulties or struggles.

***What To Expect From Lessons***
I bring a lot of energy to lessons! I am very passionate about teaching and helping students grow, and I make sure to bring that to every lesson. I give concise, direct feedback to students, making sure to give them the information they need to understand how they can achieve their goals and grow.

I am very perceptive of students' feelings, and I take care to be sensitive to their needs each week. My worst fear as a teacher is to cause hurt feelings, so I will do everything in my power to avoid that!

I am an expert in the field of music and the flute, so you can be rest assured that the quality of instruction will be the highest.

My daughter had Drew as her first teacher for the 2015-2016 school year. He was excellent at explaining concepts and techniques to her as she began to learn the flute. He helped her to have fun as she learned. He is patient, knowledgeable, positive, and communicates concepts and expectations well. We would have loved to have him stay in the area and continue as her teacher.

I had the privilege of having Drew as my private flute teacher for the 2015-2016 school year, and I would have loved to remain his student if he hadn't moved. He's incredibly patient, thoughtful, and hardworking, and he helped me correct problems that previous teachers never even noticed. I improved in so many areas in a short period of time, including overall tone, physical technique, performance psychology, practice habits, and applying musicality to my performance. Easily the best teacher I've ever had.

About Jose
I am Jose, graduated as an undergrad at Towson University and currently enrolled at University of Maryland. My career is focus on Spanish Literature and Latin American Studies. While majoring on those careers, I participated on a work study group as a tutor in Spanish Linguistics, Culture, and History. I am originally from Peru and have been a volunteer teaching, assisting, and leading educational plans in Mexico and Peru. I enjoy teaching because it connects different people who share similarities and differences culturally and willing to learn about one another.
My experience comes from teaching abroad in both rural areas and cities in Latin America. Currently working at Wolfe Street Academy as the Spanish program coordinator which serves students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds. I enjoy merging methodologies and differentiating to
help students overcome their learning difficulties. Hence, strengthening their learning weaknesses and polishing their learnings’ strengths.
While studying Spanish, I learn that teaching a language is not solely about grammar but rather the culture and structure behind it. Grammar nonetheless is part of the language and a co-requirement to excel academically. My qualifications comes from my multicultural methodology where I teach and provide students resources to self-learn and structure their metacognitive abilities. Merging both culture and language provides opportunities to research, creative write, independent study themes and topics related to the language of Spanish. My interdisciplinary vision provides students the ability to learn grammar not as a base but a tool to comprehend, critical think, and synthesize own their own perceptions and opinions about its culture.
Being a teacher means that one once was a student. The value of learning different things and paying attention to details while having fun in discovering and researching has make craft my abilities to teach the particular subjects describe previously. I will end by quoting Nelson Mandela "Education is the most powerful weapon in the world to entice change" I look forward working with everyone.
