About Sebastian
I am from Colombia where I used to be both, an English and Spanish Teacher. I did it for over 15 years and thanks God I did a great job in all institutions I worked for. My accent is from Bogotá, Colombia, and I have a very learned spanish level. Many people say that in Colombia, specially in Bogotá, you will find one of the best places to learn this language as our accent is neutral. I have developed a skilled and easy technique to teach this beautiful language. On the other hand I am an artist. If you are interested in learning and getting a high and fluent spanish level, with someone who feels passion for teaching, I am the one you need.

About Jackie
Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to check out my profile. Just a side note, I DO have a background check just not through the company TakeLessons wants me to use. I have taught elementary and middle school aged children through this website (as well as adults.) I have experience tutoring high school students in Spanish and French as an undergrad in college. I also taught English abroad while I studied in Geneva, Switzerland. I have taught English as a Second Language as a volunteer in the city. This past year I have taught French, Spanish, and English as a Second Language through TakeLessons.

I am TEFL certified and have a B.A. in Political Science - concentration in International Politics, minors in French and Theatre.

Here are some articles I have written featured here on the Take Lessons website -

About Kevin
I have been a teacher for several years in subjects ranging from Music to English. My most recent experience has been with ESL students, which I find to be most fulfilling. I earned a 94th percentile GRE Verbal score and have coached several students in test prep and general writing. As a trained singer, dialects and accents are areas with which I have extensive experience. The mechanics of phonation and speech have been a theme throughout my career and I have developed an acute sensitivity to the intricacies of diction in various languages.

I hope I can be of service to you!

On a personal note, I enjoy long-distance bike rides, classical music (2,500 vinyl LPs in the collection), personal essay writing, movies, and cooking. I love learning and spend almost all of my free time learning about something.

Melody loves performing in high pressure situations whether it’s in an orchestral, a pop/rock environment, a professional chamber group, or it’s for a solo recital or competition.

Aside from performing, Melody also loves teaching and sharing her artistic crafts. She has been teaching for five years through multiple studios in Southern California, Northern California, and New York City. As a teacher, she prides herself in training the technical and and historical aspects of her art forms to make sure students develop appropriate technique to
avoid injury both immediate and long term. At the same time, she promotes a fun environment and learning experience for even the most difficult students. She focuses on beginning- intermediate levels, but has experience training all ages from beginners to coaching for international competitions.

Melody received her musical training from Alexandra Perdew, Mei Lau, Daniel Alfred Wachs, and The Little Dance World company and school. She completed all of the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music levels in piano and holds a Royal Academy of Dance certificate with Distinction at the Advanced Vocational Level.

Melody was an incredibly kind and patient teacher. There were multiple times when I couldn't understand the material right away, but she would work with me until I was comfortable with it. She was really understanding with my struggles in math. I would highly recommend her as an instructor.

· Harp · In studio
Melody is as lovely as she is talented. Not only does she understand the harp inside and out, but her playing is like nothing I've ever heard. While she can of course play classic tunes, she is also innovative with the harp, tackling some of today's most popular hits. Most importantly, however, Melody is patient. While the harp is her first passion and she is well beyond her years, she is not only willing, but eager to share her talent with others. It has been a pleasure learning from someone who has in time become a friend. I would recommend Melody to any and everyone with the slightest passion for harp. While it is a joy learning from her, the greatest treat is hearing her play. Thanks for everything Mels!

She was extremely helpful and patient despite my very poor knowledge with the language. Would recommend as a instructor for any subject, not just my weakest one. Occasionally asked problems not regarding Chinese and still got very helpful advice.

About Rakesh
My passion of teaching originates from my personal interest in learning. I get a sense of accomplishment when I facilitate the success of another individual with my teaching. As a graduate myself from a top 10 US university, I understand that to succeed in today's extremely competitive world one has to be really good with the subjects as well as scores. I consider this as an opportunity for me to help other students succeed in getting admissions to colleges of their dream.

I am a Chemistry/Chemical Engineering graduate and very well versed in Math and Chemistry subjects. I specialize in teaching AP and SAT Chemistry, Maths; precalculus, Algebra and Geometry, high school Chemistry and Math. I have tutored more than 10 students in the last 12 months and ~80% of them have got excellent scores in SAT and AP subjects.

I generally start with
understanding the requirements of the students as well as their learning style. I adapt my teaching style according to the students. I believe in open feedback and will continue teaching the student only if both the parents and the student involved are completely satisfied. I am generally flexible with the time (during weekends, and after 6 pm on weekdays).

I am very confident that your child will enjoy my teaching and be able to excel in the respective subject.

About Keli
Hello! My name is Keli, and I am a music/writing instructor. I currently perform as a drummer around the Philly music scene - my most noteworthy venue to date being World Cafe Live. I am also a percussionist in the South Jersy Pops Orchestra. My day job is in academia as a master's student in philosophy at Temple University. There my focus is on music theory and time consciousness (and believe me, I have a lot of fun working in that field). I also like to write poems and little short stories on the side. Music and writing add so much to my life, and I love sharing that joy of music/writing with my students. I hope I may be of service!
