I focus on annotation skills and making sure my students understand the "main idea" in every chapter that they read. I am big on making book outlines and character charts.

Very patient and knows how to connect with her student

Tamar is a wonderful, dynamic and enthousiastic teacher and my 12 year old daughter had a great time with her.
Tamar knows when to slow down if her student is tired, but is also demanding so as to be sure that progress are made.
It was a pleasure seeing how fast my daughter improved her English and we both appreciated meeting Tamar, who is a great person :)

I really enjoyed lessons with Emilie! She is well organized and has a clear lesson plan for each session, with follow up homework and exercises. I learned so much about technique and the "how to" of drawing. Everything she put together was appropriate for my level and included exercises that challenged me to improve. I could tell Emilie is well trained and skilled at drawing. She is also very nice and I felt relaxed and comfortable with her. Her studio is warm and inviting. Overall it was a great experience and I am looking forward to taking some additional lessons with Emilie!

So happy to have found Emilie! I work for a family with a four year old child who is extremely engaged in art and we wanted to find private lessons for her. Emilie has been extremely accommodating and very intentional in making sure we were ready for our first lesson. Will be scheduling more lessons and look forward to her being apart of my charges explorative learning!

I have been a professional writer for approximately 24 years and have taught English and Creative Writing for most of that time. I have 5 published works to my credit. I have found that one of the primary difficulties that students have when working on a project, regardless of their age, is actually finishing it. Therefore, when I tutor a student we work through the experience of taking a project from first idea, to polishing and proofing, to completion. Along the way, students encounter everything from proper rules of English usage, spelling, sentence structure and syntax, to writing expressively and creatively, to research and legal crediting of sources. Each lesson is structured to the individual student's age, knowledge, and desires for their future in writing -whether it be just for fun or for publication.

About Suzann

My educational background consists of both university and music conservatory. As a musician, I have sung and played my various instruments since a very young child. Music is meant to be shared and I have over 30 years of teaching and performance experience. As a writer, I have been a published

I have a number of Bible classes and Religion classes under my belt. I took Theology classes through an accredited Bible Discipleship class. I have also studied Apologetics as well as old and new testament studies of The Bible. Furthermore, I have studied religion and philosophy in college as well.
I took Old and New Testament studies as well as systematic theology and other Bible courses including missions and international and language studies.

In addition to my university and college studies, I have had the privilege to travel to China where I met with a number of professors and students discussing atheism, Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism and other Eastern practices.
Furthermore, I joined up with a few Arabic families in my community where I was able to see cultural and religious practices that many do not get to experience and observe being apart from it.

Blessings! :)

Great teacher I have two granddaughters that wanted to learn to play our family piano. Ashley has been great keeping these two (5yr old and 9yr old) interested and enjoying what they are learning.
