About Ryan
I have been playing the piano for 7 years, but have been involved in the musical institution for much longer than that. I am currently pursuing my bachelors in classical piano performance from California State University of Dominguez Hills, with not much longer to go. I have also been shaping minds young and old in piano technique and music theory for the last three years. And, I believe I am an ideal teacher for anyone just starting out, to those who are trying to continue from where they left off.

*** Lesson Details ***
My first and foremost goal is to inspire a student to want to learn and thrive in their instrument. If I can do this, my job along with theirs, becomes that much easier. I try and do this by heavily incorporating the music that they identify the most with, while strengthening their technique with a classical foundati
on. And, introduce a well rounded set of incentives for each of their accomplishments.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide sheet music and books, I expect the student to provide the instrument they would like to take lessons on.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Contemporary, Popular Song

As an ethnically mixed immigrant who attended school here since the age of six, I have vast experience teaching the English language to all kinds of people. I've taken gifted classes throughout elementary, middle and high school, and completed several AP English classes. I attended college at the Miami Dade Honors College, where I completed several advanced English classes as well. I have taught pronunciation, spelling, and grammar to people of all ages with great success.

I have experience with writing books and essays, but also poetry. I have published one anthology of poetry entitled "America vs. America." I can help you form your thoughts on paper and have them grammatically sound so that they flow well.

About Cody
With my two Bachelor's degrees in Music Composition and Technology, I began tutoring students in piano, voice, and composition as it was part of my training. I also have experience writing and editing essays, books, and more for several independent clients. I have experience writing my own books as well. I have written two so far, but am getting ready to write a third. I am a copious editor and can catch grammatical and other errors with ease. This is why tutoring in English would be great for me.
I thought I would add basic math for those school-aged children that are having a little trouble with it in their classes.
Usually, I teach lessons in my home in Diamond Bar or online, but if the need arises, I could surely work out coming to the students' homes for one-on-one tutoring help. With me, most students click after a few lessons and
understand what they couldn't in the classroom. I help the students by teaching in innovative ways that will catch their attention more than standard teaching methods. Students should consider me for I can make learning fun and never a chore!

*** Lesson Details ***
I use a wide variety of techniques to sing, play piano and other instruments. Techniques include straight vowel singing (no words) to test how long to hold notes, using color to help people sight read, using improvisational techniques in order to play jazz, rock, classical and many other styles of music.
I use what they student has under his or her belt as a starting point to see what lessons we could start them on.
I also assist with online lessons to make transportation a thing of the past. If you've got a webcam or Skype, I can do long-distance lessons with you! So, I am here to help!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Alesis Recital Keyboard
Music sheets
Web cam
Mac computer (MacBook Pro)
Finale music notation software to help in composition and theory lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Music paper for away lessons.
Finale for composition and music theory lessons.
Can use macbook for more elaborate teaching or demonstration if need be.

*** Specialties ***
I do teach classical composition with specialties in ensemble and chamber music. I also specialize in songwriting for pop and other media.
I teach voice and vocal techniques of sacred choral and vocal music.
I teach classical and jazz piano and improvisation. I also have the distinction in being able to teach students with special needs or learning disabilities as I have a mild form of cerebral palsy and understand what students with special needs go through.

About Megan
I worked at a Kumon math and reading tutoring center for three years. I love helping children with their schoolwork, especially those in the elementary grades. I have worked one on one with students and with small groups of students. I recently graduated from Cal Poly Pomona as a Liberal Studies major and I am continuing my education to attain my Multiple Subject teaching credential. I would like to become an elementary school teacher in the future. I have tutored students as young as pre-K all the way through the eighth grade and I am very passionate about helping others.

Elementary Math
I have tutored high school students in math outside of the tutoring company I work at. I have taught students between the ages of 4 to 10 through both one on one instruction and group instruction. I have also taken classes at Cal Poly Pomona tha
t include Mathematical Concepts for Elementary School Teachers: Number Systems, Elementary Mathematics from an Advanced Viewpoint: Algebra, and Elementary Mathematics from an Advanced Viewpoint: Geometry. I am currently tutoring a second grader in adding and subtracting, two third graders in multiplication and division, and two sixth graders in pre-algebra. I have also tutored an eighth grader in math before.

Elementary (K-6th)
I am qualified to teach students at the elementary grade level because my Liberal Studies major at Cal Poly Pomona has given me the necessary background and skills to become an elementary school teacher. I have taken math classes at Cal Poly Pomona that are from a teacher's viewpoint. I am currently enrolled in classes that will go toward earning my teaching credential. I have worked with students between the ages of 4 to 10 in both math and reading through one on one instruction and group instruction. I have tutored many students at the elementary level. I have taught and tutored a three year old, two second graders, two third graders, one fourth grader, and four sixth graders. I have a very positive relationship with both my students and their parents. I like to have feedback from parents and be informed of how my students are doing in school. Many of my parents have told me about the heightened confidence they see in their children. When I tutor students, I like to bring in extra material for them so they can really understand whatever they are working on. I have many reading books, worksheets, and flashcards that I provide for my students.

Phonics
I am qualified to teach phonics because I have worked at a reading tutoring center for three years and have been able to help students between ages three to ten improve their reading skills. I taught a three year old to recognize all of the letters of the alphabet out of order and we are currently working on understanding all letter sounds. I use a lot of worksheets and repetition so students can recall what they have learned very quickly. I also like to use hands on activities and games.

Reading
I am qualified to tutor students in reading because I have worked at a reading tutoring center for almost three years. I have helped students learn to read by working with them through both one on one and group instruction. I have worked with reading students between the ages of three to 13. I really enjoy teaching students in the lower grades and seeing them grow from learning their ABCs, to knowing letter sounds, and then blending sounds to form words. Each of these steps is important for students to master so they can form a strong foundation and confidence in reading.

Study Skills
I am qualified to teach study skills because I have always been a very good student in school and have been able to maintain a high grade point average. I have learned how to manage my time and how to study for tests. I have never turned in a late assignment as I know my limitations and how to distribute my time to the tasks that need to be completed.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each lesson changes as students learn new material. For some of the students I have tutored, I have helped them sharpen their skills by revisiting topics. For other students, the lessons have been for test preparation or homework help. I like to use a lot of repetition because I feel that repetition allows students to really learn and understand what they are working on.

*** Specialties ***
I provide my students with many worksheets, resources, and books that will help them achieve their learning goals.

I tried different learning centers and other similar programs through the school to help my child meet her academic needs and improve her school performance, but she was still facing a lot of difficulties. I can honestly say that I prayed for a tutor/teacher like Ms. Megan. She is simply the best. She has such a positive and encouraging approach to teaching. This wonderful unique individual thinks outside the box. She was able to identify the areas that my child was having difficulties in right away. We dreaded the school year before meeting Ms. Megan. At the end of the school, my child received not only the usual attendance award, but I 'm so happy and proud to say that she also received 3 academic achievement awards. Ms. Megan truly has a gift for teaching. I Thank GOD my prayers were answered. :)

About Mark
Hey everybody! Hola and Ni Hao. My name is Mark and I'm an Organic Farmer with an International MBA and minors in both Spanish and Mandarin. With over 20 years of foreign language study, and 10 years teaching foreign languages, I know exactly what works and what doesn't when it comes to learning a new language.

I recently moved to Aurora in order to be closer to my family (I recently lived in China, Maui, and Alaska). I have the flexibility to work with you around your schedule and will create a customized lesson plan that fits your needs. I have extensive experience teaching small to large groups as well.

My only requirement of you is I request that my students be committed and dedicated to learning the language they choose for me to tutor. I assign homework every lesson that is very important to continuing the learning expe
rience outside of class.

Hope to talk to you soon!

He assigned homework each week (the reason I initially chose him) that was based on our lessons. It pushed me to grow. I found him to be quite competent, gentle with correction, and pretty funny.

M. Marie Roche conducted on the campus of U Mass eight seminars--open to all--on two of Shakespeare's history plays, King John and Richard II. Neither play is popular with modern Shakespeare-going audiences. But she accomplished the nearly impossible--making both plays compelling and relevant by her selection of background documents and themes. I hope that TakeLessons can provide an adequate platform for her level of sophistication.
