About Rose
I graduated from the University of South Florida where I received my BA in Theatre performance & Communication with a minor in Dance. In 2011 I finished studying Music Recording at St. Petersburg College, where I focused on Singing/Songwriting. I trained at NYU with the Aquila acting company in classical theatre, and I also trained with TVI Acting studios in Los Angeles in Film and television.

My Music and Performance experience started when I was 6 singing in choir, school productions, and taking piano lessons. I continued on with group ensembles, musical theatre shows and later on touring with the Spanish Lyric Theatre in Both English and Spanish in throughout Florida after college.

I have been teaching one on one and group lessons for 15 years in various subjects, Including Music, Dance, Theatre, Academic Tutoring (Eleme
ntary/Middle School subjects: English, Writing, Reading, Math, Social Studies, Reading, Writing, Learning Skills, Civics, French, and test preparations), and Culinary Lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like the combination of relaxed and goal oriented. I like to get to know my students and learn about about expectations and goals they have for themselves. Then I set up a plan that will help them achieve their goals and get them closer to what they want from their lessons. I take into consideration their interest, style, and help them to find their unique learning style.

I do have some guidelines for parents and students. If the student is a minor, I ask that the parent be in the house for the lesson. I also ask that the lesson be performed in the Living room or Music Space.

I have taken lessons with Ronald since I was 6, I am now 23. In my 17 years of taking lessons I have learned to play piano, sing and am proficient in music theory. In the more recent years I have even had the opportunity to teach music through Ronald. Throughout the years, I have experienced and witnessed the patience and kindness Ronald consistently shows his students. He encourages his students to become better and shares in their enthusiasm due to their accomplishments. Ronald genuinely cares about his students and is dedicated to making sure his students improve. I fully recommend Ronald for students who have parents who want to be involved in the learning process and especially for young children who are just starting out. Ronald works well with families, includes parents every step of the way and is very patient with young students helping them learn in an open and encouraging environment.

· Singing · In studio
Mr.Chaz is really dedicated to his profession. He started to teach my seven year old son over one year ago and he has motivated him to sing his best and he started piano with him last year which has been a phenomenal experience for my son. Chaz really focuses on the detail, theory and groundwork necessary to excel in music. If you are lucky enough to get your child started with him you will never regret the experience. He is simply the best! My son sings all the time now and loves to play piano. I am so happy for my son to have found someone to expand on his talents!

About Rachel
Hello! 

Are you looking for some help with elementary level math or reading? Do you need assistance with writing or editing a high school or college paper? Are you interested in learning a language like English, Spanish, or Portuguese? Or do you just need some supplemental lessons to really help you understand your class material?

Then contact me!

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a bachelors degree in International Studies, Spanish, and Global Cultures. While an undergraduate, I studied abroad in Ecuador. I also received a Certificate in Youth Development from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, as well as a Certificate in Conversational Portuguese from Liberty University. I continue to further my education by taking Public Policy masters courses from Liberty University.

I am passionate about lea
rning, and I delight in helping others succeed in their academic and language pursuits. For over 14 years, I have been tutoring clients of all ages in various subjects. In Lithuania, I taught youth conversational English. While in college, I took several elementary education courses, assisted other college students with their homework, and tutored grade school students in math and reading. Following graduation, I continued to work with younger students in an after-school program setting, and for several years I have been teaching private language lessons to adults and children.

While I tutor several subjects, I really enjoy helping clients learn a new language. In this globalized world, I believe that learning another language is invaluable; being able to communicate in a non-native tongue not only improves your self-confidence, but it also helps you see the world from a new perspective. I love that knowing foreign languages has given me insight into other cultures and allowed me to form deep relationships with people who do not know any English.

In my language classes you will receive assistance with:
• understanding content
• clarity in writing
• vocabulary
• cultural comprehension
• grammar
• sentence structure

As a teacher, I delight in helping my students find success, and I strive to create a relaxed, fun, and happy classroom. I work with you at your pace and tailor lessons to your needs. It is my goal for you to have a better grasp of the subject matter and to equip you with the tools you need to succeed.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling and learning about other cultures, being creative, going on outdoor adventures, playing cards and board games, singing and dancing, reading, and watching movies.

Experience & Education: 
• 14+ years experience tutoring Spanish, Conversational English, ESL, Elementary/Middle School/college subjects, writing/editing papers 
• 20+ years speaking Spanish with experience living in a Spanish-speaking country 
• University of Wisconsin graduate with 3.9 GPA 
• B.A. in Spanish, International Studies, and Global Cultures 
• Public Policy masters courses
• Elementary Education courses 
• Portuguese courses

About Tracy
I'm Deaf and have been fluent in ASL for over 35 years. I also can speak and lipread well so there's no language barrier. I teach in a fun, casual style and am flexible in the lesson direction you would like to go.

I'm also legally blind so the only thing I request for our sessions is that you sit in a well-lit area without a window or light directly behind you. The brighter - the better. If I can't see you, I can't tell if you're signing well.

I manage and blog at my own website. I can't wait to meet and chat with you!

About Devorah
California born and raised, I love languages, travel, reading, and music. I've dedicated the past year to understanding which methods of language learning work, and which don't. I come from a community with a large immigrant population, and I want to give back to similar communities, or any individual who wants to learn the English language as an immersive cultural experience, immigrant or not. I have experience teaching both adults and children. I teach in a personable, easygoing, but highly structured style. We will work together to personalize the lessons to your learning style and to benefit your personal language goals.

I studied the English language systematically. So if you are learning the language to more than just talk to English speaking people, if you need it for your academic study or to communicate effectively in the corporate world, you are in good hands.

I hold degrees in linguistics and computer engineering as well as a certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) from American universities and I look forward to improving your English language skills in short order.
