About Amber
Growing up in Denver, I had a huge desire for singing and performing. By age 14, I was taking weekly singing & piano lessons, was acting constantly in local productions-many times getting the lead role.
Some of the productions I acted in: The Wizard of Oz (Dorothy), Camelot, Anything Goes (Reno Sweeney), How to Succeed in Business (Smitty), Carousel, Oklahoma, Les Miserables, and Oliver (Nancy.)
I received a 4-year scholarship to the Conservatory of Music in Stockton, CA. at the University of the Pacific. Upon graduation, I entered graduate school at the University of North Texas to continue my singing and piano studies, along with music theory, history, and musical video production.
Upon graduating UNT, I was chosen among 200 performing arts majors to be the featured soloist at the UNT commencement ceremonies. This led to an off
er to tour Italy with the Rome Festival Orchestra. For the next two summers I performed in Copenhagen, Istanbul, Rome and Berlin with the Berlin Philharmonic.

*** Lesson Details ***
My students progress VERY quickly! As a teacher, I can easily identify my students’ strengths and weaknesses, and plan an individualized study course. I will instill a solid set of production skills that will easily serve ANY style of music you choose (from rock to opera.)
I will make for you a personalized recording for you to practice with daily. We will also work on songs you LOVE!
My students will have performance opportunities every 3 months. I will prepare you for college entrance auditions, TV contests, and television appearances. My students make extraordinary progress-I want you to become one of them!

*** Studio Equipment ***
10x15 dedicated music room, piano, lovely mountain view, mirrors, microphone and sound equipment available for students. The parents of students are welcome to stay in the room with the students, if they choose.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a piano and I will purchase the method book I want the student to use but I do require reimbursement for books and shipping if required. Student provides notebooks and pens.

*** Specialties ***
Seth Riggs, Popular vocal technique "Singing For The Stars"
John W. Schaum for piano

About Mark
Hey everybody! Hola and Ni Hao. My name is Mark and I'm a Language Tutor, Yoga Instructor & 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 to others, I know exactly what works and what doesn't when it comes to learning a new language.

I recently moved to Aurora, CO in order to be closer to my family since I have spent the past 12 years traveling the world.

I am a certified K-12 substitute teacher in the state of Colorado, and am in the process of obtaining the credentials to teach Spanish full-time K-12. I have the flexibility to work with you around your schedule and will create a customized lesson plan that fits your needs and unique learning methods.

My main requirement of you as a student is to be comm
itted and dedicated to learning the language we are studying and to work on the homework assignments I provide.

Hope to talk to you soon!

Mark

About Yuexin
Hi! I am an undergraduate student at Colorado College, majoring in Comparative Literature and Music. I am from Shenzhen, China, and moved to the U.S. when I was 18.

I play the banjo, do all forms of arts, and have a never-dying crave for traveling. I lived in Brazil and Finland for a little while. I have a talent in learning new languages and am passionate about teaching them.

I have taught Chinese to people of all age. I specialize in teaching listening and speaking. If you would like to take lessons with me in person, then I am good at teaching reading and writing as well. My strength is in my patience for my students. I understand that learning a new language, especially Chinese, is not an overnight progress. As a language learner myself, I emphasize with the frustration, yet the excitement of learning the language and the cultu
re.

So trust me! Let yourself or your child be in good hands.

About Alex
Teaching is what I do! I have TAed multiple classes and taught dozens of students. I teach piano and other music concepts, as well as STEM fields in school. I only teach concepts that I'm completely fluent in, however, so you always get the absolute best instruction possible!

I have been playing piano for over 12 years. I retrained from scratch in the Taubman Technique a few years ago and play with ease and effortless musicality! I have taught tons of students how to play the instrument, incorporating these concepts into their playing as well.

I also tutor in STEM topics, including all math, physics, chemistry, and others. I have tutored over 2 dozen students and helped many achieve great results. I have a Master's degree in applied physics, graduated Magna cum Laude, and am fully prepared to help you master your math/science class
es!

Schedule a lesson with me! See yourself improve from someone who knows how people think and understands the topics enough to impart the same onto you!

About Laura
I agree with the your philosophy that “All children can learn when taught correctly, regardless of past history.” I feel connecting to the students as individuals and on a personal level is what engages them and bring them to level of wanting to learn. I believe in “teaching across the curriculum,” as no subject is isolated from any other. Teaching Latin has enabled me to teach ancient history, literature, poetry, English grammar as well as the language. I have also taught humanities and mythology, which helps with the whole global perspective of history. My lesson plans are developed using constructivist techniques and are authentic with the intention of helping students become life-long learners.

Laura Eckard is a very charismatic and responsive teacher. She works well with her students and she assures that they have all opportunities to succeed. She is very good at explaining and making sure her students understand. I was very impressed with her as a teacher and how well her and her students interacted. For me personally, she helped me to better understand the subject as a whole, and to fully grasp all concepts. She works well with her students and in return, they gain the knowledge she gives them.

Confidence is the key to success in school, and often a great relationship with a tutor and academic coach is the foundation required for skilled navigation of our educational system. Both parents and students alike benefit from a great tutor / coach relationship. I look forward to learning more about you!

Kristine has a gentle touch and puts my daughter at ease with her math struggles. We have tried several other tutors before settling on Kristine. As parents, we have a lot of anxiety about our daughter's school performance as well. Not only has Kristine helped bring up my daughter's grades and confidence, she has helped guide us on how to best use free resources at school to help our daughter. She has been instrumental in turning a negative experience with our daughter's school into a positive one. I do view her as an Academic Coach with a variety of skill sets. We have recommended her to others and have received similar excellent reviews.

About John
I was born in Clearwater, Florida before coming to Colorado 17 years ago. Most of my family still lives out of state. My wife and I just moved to Colorado Springs from Fort Collins; I really enjoy learning, which is why I enjoy sharing that passion with others. If you want to laugh and learn, then let's get started!

My Degree is in Public Health, with 5 years of experience under my belt. So why am I a Christian Faith, Finance, and Public Speaking Tutor? Simple. I am experienced in and passionate about these fields.

I have been a follower of Christ for 17+ years, a devote disciple of Jesus Christ for 4+ years. I have taught theology formally in 4+ churches, in over 3 denominations and several cities. I had the privilege of being Student Body President of a Christian Organization at Colorado State University.

I have overseen all t
he finances for 4 companies. One company I owned actually won "Best of Thumbtack" two years in a row for excellent customer feedback! Finances were my secondary Degree at Colorado State University.

I was awarded "Competent Communicator" by Toastmasters International. I have been invited for speaking engagements of all sizes in cities across Colorado. Those cities include Denver, Loveland, Fort Collins, Westminster among a few.

Do you want to laugh and learn? All we need to get started is for you to send me a message and for us to pick the place!
