About Douglas
I combine my two decades of experience as a professional tutor and corporate writer with my own personal understanding of the learning struggles faced by students to create unique methods for every student to learn, regardless of the subject. I use creative innovations to make learning fun and enjoyable for my students. My students quickly see how much I care for their progress and success. Many have chosen to retain me as their tutor for more than a year.

I had the opportunity to work with Douglas a number of times during my tenure as a part-time instructor at SCORE Educational Center. What I noticed about him was that he related very well to the children he worked with - he was a very enthusiastic tutor of English and math! He was most generous with the "high fives" and praise, and he also knew how to get students back on track if their focus strayed. Also, I saw him work very well with the parents; he always took the time to patiently explain lesson plans and students' progress between sessions. I have known Douglas personally for many years. He was the one who encouraged me to work at SCORE Educational Center given my background in Education - I thank him for that because I enjoyed my time there very much while I was able to stay (unfortunately, I had to leave that position for a full-time job elsewhere). SCORE Educational Center is no longer in existence. Douglas currently works as an independent tutor, and given how long I've seen clients stick with him, I have no doubt that they are enjoying the same level of attention and enthusiasm he provided at SCORE. When he speaks about the progress of independent clients and how they respond to him, it is with enthusiasm and a glowing smile. If you are looking for a tutor that is intelligent, dedicated, enthusiastic, and simply great with kids and parents, then Douglas is your man.

About dan
I love teaching ASL so much for it is my passion. I am a fun ASL teacher and you will love how fast you learn ASL. Sign up now. You can find my youtube videos online. My background includes having deaf parents and daughters that are deaf so I have been using ASL all of my life as it's my first language and I am a CODA (child of deaf parents). I have taught k-12 deaf students for over 30 years. My favorite subject is teaching American Sign Language (all levels) and interpreting which I taught at the local college for over 20 years. I have lifetime teaching credentials for k-12 and community college. Presently, I interpret for the deaf free-lance. I have taught over 3000 students over my many years of teaching, it is my love.

About Tamari (Tamara)
Hi, there! I'm Tamara and I can't wait to meet you!

On social media and for those who are more familiar, I'm Tamari. We all learn in different ways; some are more visual; others, auditory; some, kinesthetic--I combine a number of different modalities in my teaching, including direct feedback-teaching--once you learn a concept or skill, teach it, as soon as you possibly can, to someone else! -- this reinforces your own knowledge of the skill or concept!
I've been teaching private lessons for many years and have loved helping my students acquire new skills, master new pieces, and prepare for concerts and performances. Over the years, my younger students have earned Blue and Gold ratings at the Young Musicians' Festival in Fairfield U., some of them earning gold cups: This is a statewide event to encourage long-term commitment
to the art, discipline and joy of music making.
I went to Indiana University's Jacob School of Music and earned a Masters in Piano Performance, and Composition in the '90's. I sang all types of vocal music as well as prepared singers with vocal coaching and voice development techniques 20+ years.
I'm fun loving, patient, and optimistic-- these traits carry through in my teaching style,
One Size does NOT fit all--I approach the lesson plans for each student tailored to your learning style.
Over the past 23 years, my life experiences have encompassed other disciplines and compelled me to learn and acquire many other skills: my liberal arts as well as fine arts education lent itself to helping me work administrative jobs and even expanded into sales and public speaking. I have coached after school and SAT preparation to High School and College age students, helped with the preparation of legal and analytical documents, creative writing and editing assignments; and even tutored computer, social media and Microsoft Office & iWork Suite of applications to older adults.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals

Tamari Witkin is not only an incredible musician, but is one of only a few teachers who is deeply committed to making sure that any student she takes under her wing will fledge comfortably and competently. Tamari has a keen sense of exactly what is needed to help a particular student overcome a particular pianistic impediment to learning to play the piano. Moreover, she brims with such enthusiasm that it all becomes so much fun studying with her that one cannot help but feel like and sound like they are becoming a pianist.
I highly recommend anyone at any level of piano playing to study with Tamari,

It was a pleasure working with Tamari Witkin over the years that she was located in Milford and participated in the Schubert Club of Fairfield County. I am familiar with her piano performance, which was high level, showing fine musicianship and great sensitivity to the message of the pieces.
I have also sung with her; and again, she shows a high degree of musicianship!

About Kat
How about a relaxed, fun and natural way of learning American Sign Language? Let's try some lessons together. I teach in an interactive and empowering way where discovering the beauty of this visual language and the valuable culture cherished by Deaf and Hearing Americans is part of every lesson.

I cater lessons to match your learning style and communication needs. Your classes will also have music, role-play, games and story telling. I have taught ASL and Deaf Culture to many different students and groups: K-12 students, families with special needs children, college students, interpreting students, professionals, families with Deaf children, adults, home schoolers, choirs, and dance troops.
I am a certified Interpreter with the National Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf and have been a professional interpreter and ASL instructor
since 1991. I am a certified teacher in the state of Connecticut and hold an MS in education, a BA in Communications Human Relations/Interpreting.

Diana was one of the best tutors I have ever had the pleasure of learning with. She is extremely kind and thoughtful, bringing something special to every encounter. She is also one of the most timely people I have ever met, never showing up less than ten minutes early. She encouraged me every step of the way and never made me feel as though I was learning at too slow of a pace. Her sense of humor is also amazing, making tutoring feel more like hanging with an old friend. Give her a chance to be your tutor and I can guarantee you will not regret it.
