Welcome to your safe space! I believe that before any learning can take place, the student must feel safe with their teacher. I believe authentic care allows students to trust their teachers and move forward with confidence and self-compassion as they encounter challenges and successes with their learning.
With about 5 years of teaching experience and my degree being a BS in Education, I hope to be the teacher that you’re seeking! I have a specific love for teaching English, Reading, Writing, Literacy, and Math! However, I’m up for the challenge to learn (or brush up on) a new subject if the need is there and the match is right. So feel free to shoot me a message and we can move forward from there! If my availability doesn’t work for you, also feel free to message me and we can make something work.
Happy learning!

I've been teaching English for 7 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of the American culture, study abroad, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro!

About Daniel

I love teaching, I can teach you at where you at and take you where you need to be. I only need a student with the desire to learn and to practice. I like to help students realize they have the intelligence and ability to solve the problems on their own, they just need the right direction. Nothin

I came to the United States with about three English words. One of them was the word - pencil. Not very useful you may agree.

I have become a translator in real time, published writer of both professional writing in my field of music and of fiction. My writing has been sold in all stores and outlets. It has been carried and sold online as well as in all stores of Barns and Noble, Amazon in hard cover as well as soft cover editions. I have been published in newspapers as a music critic and my editing of scientific literature that pass peer review on the largest online magazine has helped publish and approve works by PhD musicologists as well as faculty of the famed Oxford University. My speaking is without accent or any indication of my origins. My original language is Russian.

Let me help you to reach a place of ease and comfort in your communications. Getting a job, finding friends, filling out forms or writing creatively. No matter what you do, your language is ...

Joseph has a wealth of knowledge about speaking, listening, vocals, etc.

He created a welcoming environment in our online lessons that made it easy to be vulnerable and get right to working on new skills.

I highly recommend for others looking to better understand their voice and communication style, and learn to hone them.
Catherine K.
Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.
Donna
I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I have been teaching ESL for over 11 years now in many distinct areas. I began teaching ESL when I moved to Ecuador in 2009. I worked in a wide array of different academies, Universities, in-company classes and private classes. In 2016 I moved to Seville, Spain to begin my PhD in Philosophy and have continued teaching English in the same capacity. I am specially geared towards exam preparation (Cambridge, TOEFL, APTIS, etc). My intent is always to cater to the students needs. I am very dynamic in my classes and always try and have fun as well as move the student forward on their path to mastering the language. I am also bilingual in Spanish.

"I've chosen Staphanie as my teacher, because I needed someone who will really quickly help me make my English accent better. I took the fact that she is also a musician as a big advantage as I assumed she'll be able to hear all the false accentuation I make. In fact, if you want to work on your English skills, it's the best combination of skills.
It was really clever decision. Stephanie is able to explain things clearly and fast. Step by step, syllable by syllable, trains student how to speak properly. If you're ready to do your homework and want to see progress fast, Stephanie is perfect person to work with. And she is very kind, too!"
