I love supporting students in breaking down the phonetics of language and grammar to help them develop flow and expression in their reading. Students will find that they have more fun reading and feel more confident with their skills.

My daughter has been taking lessons with Mikaela for 3 years and has been thriving! Mikaela is kind and friendly while holding her students to high standards. They all clearly enjoy themselves and it is rewarding to see them all progress from one recital to the next. She comes to the house to give lessons but now teaches through zoom due to the pandemic. Highly recommended!!!
Margot B.
Our daughter had her first lesson yesterday and loved it and Mikaela. She said it was the best day ever and can't wait for her next lesson next week! Mikaela obviously has experience teaching children and make our daughter feel at ease and comfortable. Most of the first lesson seemed to be focused on proper instrument and handling, which makes sense. It can take years to undo poor posture and position if not begun correctly. Mikaela explained what she was doing and why, and made sure our daughter understood everything as she went along. Thank you for a first great experience!
Daniel S.
Mikaela is not only an excellent musician but an outstanding music teacher, a rare combination. I have been taking violin lessons from her for quite some time now, and I am amazed at how much of a difference she has made in my efforts to pick up the instrument as a total beginner.

She has great observational abilities to immediately notice errors in form or movement, all the while maintaining calm and complete patience. She also has gift for suggesting corrections with analogy and imagery that has been very helpful in my experience.

I would highly recommend her.

Joshua has been a great teacher for my 11 year old son! My son is learning how to play the saxophone and even though he's had no experience playing any type of instruments, he's learning a lot because Joshua's a great teacher. He's patient and kind with him and I would recommend him to anyone that's looking to learn something new!
Calista
Josh is very professional and serious about teaching chess. He teaches my 9 year old daughter and she is learning fast. I asked him to make sure my daughter states the rules before each move and he does a great job at that. He is very nice and we feel very comfortable with him. He doesn't joke around or waste time. I like that especially when dealing with kids. We will continue our classes with him. My daughter will take a few mins to get started and he starts the time when she's ready.
Matt
Josh is a no nonsense teacher. I liked that we got right into it the first lesson so to speak. We had to use FaceTime instead of zoom so it was a little hard for me to hear, but he was very patient and repeated instructions many times.

My name is Mena. I have a strong background in math with a degree in Actuarial science and have been tutoring the SAT, ACT, Algebra 1&2, and Geometry for over four years. I have extensive knowledge of the testing strategies needed to make the exam fun and easy. I work with students to find areas that need strengthening then work patiently with them to hone their skills. Successful test preparation is largely about demystifying the test through time spent learning the correct approach which I have years of experience doing, with that confidence students can achieve any score they set their minds to.
