Private English Teacher

As someone who needed to learn other languages, I can assist anyone whose native language is not English to become more proficient, improve their grammar, and gain better conversational skills.
One of my specialties is interview prep. I worked in IT, in marketing, and have an MBA, interviewed candidates and been interviewed myself - so I can share insights with my students.
However I also hold "regular conversation," while I listen attentively to my student, and correct grammar and style.

What I Learned From Peter.

- THE METRONOME IS SO IMPORTANT
- The voice guides the guitar if you’re more of a singer
- Repetition is key
- Practice songs that aren’t in your style to ease your way into guitar
- The power resides in strumming rhythmically
- Focus is more difficult that it seems when combining singing and guitar
- Guitar is an art in itself and itself you shouldn’t master guitar, you should be it’s friend.
- Open mics and video content are the key to more success as they expose you to criticism (good or bad)
Again, the guitar is your companion.

For any aspiring musician or any musician that needs guidance and improvement on the guitar, Peter is a great teacher.
Dhiraj
Peter is very patient and great teaching my 9yr old son. We take father and son lessons together which has been amazing. Peter is naturally talented and plays many other instruments all in from his home studio. He is also extremely flexible and accommodating. Highly recommended!

Over the years I’ve had many tutors, worked with many professors and teachers, and I have to say that Marie is by far in the top 5% of all educators that I’ve seemed guidance from. I’ve taken the GRE multiple times, yet was only a few points away from my required Verbal score. I saw the reviews that Marie had and decided that she would be the best person to help me achieve my goal and I was right. She worked with me to develop a study plan based on what worked best with my schedule rather than taking one size fits all approach to my learning. She took extra steps to send my daily assignments that were challenging and helped me grow. She took time to help me get to the root cause of why I wasn’t answering questions correctly by not just moving on to the next problem just because I got it correct. She really cares. We talked constantly and she was always there when I had a question day or night. I plan to apply her methods and all that I’ve learned from her while attending the university that I was recently accepted to! Thank you Marie! Anyone seeking a truly dedicated and inspiring tutor for GRE Verbal should definitely choose Marie. Simply the best!
Gabriel
First of all, Marie is a very pleasant person. Working with someone that is nice makes learning so much better. She immediately provided me with several new techniques for studying that will allow me to focus on the areas that I am struggling with. She broke information down to where it was easy for me to understand and reemphasized key points that she was teaching to ensure that I understood them. More importantly, she asked me if I understood what she was teaching me rather than assume that I comprehended everything immediately, which many instructors I've worked with do not tend to do. Lastly, she was also willing to adjust her schedule to help me get the study sessions in that I need. I'm glad that I am working with her to up my GRE score!
