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.

About Detrece
DeTrece "Dee" Lavender is a native of Miami, Florida. When her family moved to Sarasota, she was afforded the opportunity to study music and the performing arts as a student of the Westcoast School/Henry L. Porter School of Music. It was then that Dee began to understand the power of the creative arts as an effective form of emotional expression and release. By middle school, DeTrece began fine tuning her natural talents by studying classical voice which earned her several starring roles in the Sarasota Youth Opera, The Aslo Theater and the Players Theater. She is also a proud former member of the Westcoast Black Theater Troop in Sarasota, FL. Under the caring leadership of these opportunities, she was able to combine musical and life experiences in order to offer a more well rounded educational and musical experience for her students.


She was awarded a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, where she received a dual Bachelor of Music degree in Music Therapy and Vocal Performance (Class of 2003). It was through her service as a music therapist, Millieu (residential) counselor and music teacher in the Boston City Public Schools/Greater Boston Metropolitan Area, that she began to feel the call toward a greater understanding of the gravity and role of the socio-emotional needs of students (and their families/villages) in urban settings. This call brought her to Baltimore, MD where she enrolled in the Pastoral Counseling Masters of Science program at Loyola University. In addition to her studies, she currently teaches Elementary and Middle School choir/ Musicianship teacher in the Baltimore City Public Schools through the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's OrchKids Program. She also serves as Minister Of Music and Arts at two local churches.

MMTB's day-long intensives with Elena are astounding. DO NOT go in with a closed mind, or thinking you know things - if you do, you will walk away bitter and confused, because Elena will challenge everything you know - BUT you will walk away with a completely new perspective if you allow yourself to learn. The days are intense (as expected), so be prepared to abandon everything you knew on the fly - and be prepared to have your mind blown, and explore aspects of your art you've never explored before.

About Alex
I have been teaching private lessons since 2001 and I am currently available to teach lessons online or in my office. As a professor , I have helped students in a number of computer science and math oriented areas including standardizes tests, as well as helping them have the confidence to overcome struggles with difficult subjects.

I believe that learning should be fun and engaging, and that no one perfect method exists to teach all students. During our lessons I try to take note of whats working and whats not, and when I find types of examples that work, I keep using them to help you accelerate your learning .

Where to start. Alex is a just a great all around person. He makes learning fun. As long as you put in the time and effort he will guide you through to where you need to be. Never a dull moment, as his lessons bring out the best in you. I would highly recommend going to him, as his style is very different than other tutors or professors. He encourages you to engage in what you are studying; to be proactive and animated, which ultimately leads to results, while having fun in the process. His style is the way learning in general should be. His techniques will train you to remain calm in the face of adversity. You will not regret going to Alex. Again, as long as you put in the time, he will help you get the results you want.

About Gidon
Thank you for reading my profile!

I was born in the Netherlands and moved to Israel at a young age. In the absorption center I picked up English. Ever since I kept perfecting my Hebrew, English, and Dutch, have written extensively and edited periodicals in the three languages I speak.

As a lifelong learner, I hold graduate degrees in Geography and Environmental Development and in Public Policy Studies. I am also certified as a Six Sigma Green Belt and a Bilingual Education Teacher.

During the 1990s and 2000s I taught IT, statistics, and social sciences and engaged in research at universities and colleges in the domains of transportation, game theory, and political geography, including at the University of Chicago. In between, I worked seven years in educational management at the City of Tel Aviv-Yafo.

From 2007 to 2013 I ta
ught Hebrew, Judaism, and Israel Studies in informal education programs and subbed in K-12. In the early 1990s, 2000s, and the second half of 2013 I worked in IT.

In the 2010s I have been marketing international educational programs, tutored mostly Hebrew and Dutch, taught mostly Microsoft Office, and proctored for an Israeli university. In August 2016 I dropped most of these for an IT and languages research position in Austin, TX. I still market educational programs and take on an occasional student.

Since the millennium year I'm married to Tamar, who teaches Hebrew, music, math, and computer programming. We raise a son and daughter.

About Meggan H.

Close

I have been teaching Microsoft Office courses since 2001. I have taught for Utah State University, Salt Lake Community College, BYU-Idaho, Charter College, Broadview University, and Alta High School. I love helping students learn. What's fun about Microsoft Office is you can use it for work, school, and personal things. These programs are amazing and won't go out of style anytime soon.

About Meggan
I am a Business and Computer teacher as well as a mom to five crazy kids ages 3 to 12. They keep me busy, but I love it. I graduated with a Master's degree from Utah State University in 2002. I first started as a teaching assistant during my last year of graduate school teaching basic Word and Excel concepts. Since then I have taught at a local high school and various colleges. I love being able to work online and meeting with people when it is convenient for both parties.

Some of my interests include hiking, running, gardening, scrapbooking, and reading. I love spending time with my family and supporting my kids in their extracurricular activities. I volunteer at our local elementary school and run the BoxTops for Education there every year. I am also involved in our Local PAC (Parent Advisory Committee).

I look forward
to working with you and helping you learn Microsoft Office.
