As a classical singer, I have extensive training and experience in clear, non-regional diction. In our sessions, students will learn and practice speaking and reading aloud in English.

About Katelyn
How I Can Help You:

I have worked one on one with music students for 10 years. I have extensive experience in teaching classical, musical theater, and pop styles of singing, as well as acting for the stage and beginning piano.

Whether you are a beginner, or a veteran musician, I can help you cultivate your musical skills.

About Me:

I am a classically trained singer, with a master's degree in music from The Peabody Institute. I have performed at The Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, The Tanglewood Music Center, several local and national opera companies, and have been positively reviewed in The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Baltimore Sun, and The Boston Globe.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each student receives a personalized lesson plan, based on his/her goals, and musical background.

My singers are all trained in a cla
ssical technique, even if they specialize in contemporary singing, to help them avoid potential vocal injury.

My piano students learn to read and play music at their own pace.

My acting and spoken voice students learn to feel comfortable reading clearly, and reciting/performing on stage or other public areas.

My music theory students work one on one with me, learning basic theory (note names, durations, etc.) to advanced theory, ear training, and composition.

I am flexible and am willing to work with students of any age and level. I only require that students practice and enjoy the music they make.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room in home with seating for parents.

*** Specialties ***
I am a classical singer, and specialize in classical voice training. However, I also have extensive experience in other singing styles, from choral to popular, and acting/oratory. I have a minor in music theory, and have taken advanced courses in music theory pedagogy.

Using videos and reading practice, I can help you learn to find where the English vowels are in the mouth and how English speakers pronounce, connect and flow when speaking. I'll be honest, you have to devote time daily (10-15 min a day) to practicing. You will be retraining your articulation muscles and daily practice is the best method. I can't practice for you.

More about Rebecca below:

An international performing artist, Rebecca has most recently performed in December of 2018 with the Genesis Opera's inaugural production of Amahl and the Night Visitors of Menotti as the Mother. Earlier in 2018, she performed with the Temecula Symphony Orchestra as Amneris in the Triumphal Scene from Aida by Verdi, under the direction of Maestro John Mario di Costanzo. She has been a feat
ured artist at the Etruria Opera Festival in Tarquinia and the Tuscia Opera Festival in Italy from 2009 to 2017 as well as performing recitals and concerts in the Southern California area. In November of 2014, Rebecca organized and performed in the Suor Angelica Project, a fundraiser for the San Diego Opera. This collaboration with the San Diego Symphony and members of the San Diego Opera Chorus raised over $7500 for the Opera.

Since 2009. Rebecca is on the faculty of the International Lyric Academy, teaching voice and Italian lessons to the American students who come over to Italy to participate and learn. She has also sung concerts and recitals in New York City, London, Edinburgh, and various cities in Italy as well as locally here in California and Florida. Rebecca received her Bachelor in Music degree from the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida. She is currently working on her Masters thesis for a Masters in Music Education from the University of Florida. She has also studied at the Universita per Stranieri in Perugia, the International Lyric Academy of Rome, and the International Institute of Vocal Arts in Chiari, Italy. She serves as the Director of Music and Liturgy at St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church in Carlsbad, California, and teaches voice and piano privately.

Rebecca has been a performer with the San Diego Opera and is a former member of the Master Chorale of Tampa Bay. She is featured on their 1996 release Christmas with the Master Chorale. Other recordings include Mahler VIII - Symphony of 1000 in the chorus with the late Robert Shaw. Other conductors and coaches Rebecca has worked with include the late Robert Shaw, the late Sir David Willcocks, the late Julius Rudel, Stefano Vignati, Dr. Robert Summer, John Mario DI Costanzo, the late Cesare Rufini, Annetta Monroe, Mary Mackenzie, Dianna Ruggiero, and Cecilia Valdenassi.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are tailored to the individual student's initial abilities. In all genres of music, it is important to breathe well, have breath support, communicate the emotion and character of the song, and eliminate vocal bad habits. These issues are different for everyone.

I teach a classical Italian technique of breath support and beautiful tone, and these techniques can be applied to all musical styles.

The student will be assigned and choose songs to learn and work on as we incorporate the techniques into the songs and vocal exercises.

Piano lessons and Italian lessons are also available from ages 4 and up. Piano lessons include music theory and recital participation. Voice lessons include recital participation. Italian lessons are available at my location, your location or online.

*** Studio Equipment ***
CD player, 7' Boston grand piano, digital recorder, ipad

*** Travel Equipment ***
Yamaha keyboard, ipad

*** Specialties ***
Voice, piano, classical, pop, Broadway, opera, Italian, piano, music theory, audition preparation. I specialize in opera and classical music but sing many styles, including pop, classical, and musical theatre; I teach all styles in piano.

About Margo L.

Chicago, IL

The reason people have "accents" is because they speak a foreign language using the grammatical and phoenetic rules of their native language. This is easily corrected and I am the one to show you how!

About Margo
Are you ready to fall in love with your voice? Are you ready for something different? If your voice isn’t becoming to you, YOU should be coming to ME!

I know what it's like to be frustrated with boring exercises and processes that seem to take a lot of time but yield no results. That's why I decided to teach DIFFERENTLY!

I've invested a lot of time, energy, emotion and $$$ on big-name schools and "experts", only to be disappointed with what I was taught because a lot of the information or techniques they employed simply didn't apply to me or my goals.

Since 1997, I have perfected the K.I.S.S. methodology to improve sales, stage performance, professional advancement and overall quality of life. My effectiveness and willingness to guarantee my work sets me worlds apart from every other professional in my field. Furthermore,
I have been named "Top Producer" in EVERY sales and management position held and have won first place in every singing and speech competition EVER entered since 1991. However, with my accolades, I am humble, easy-going and take a light-hearted and humorous approach to my coaching sessions.

At an early age, I was taught the importance of working "smart" and not "hard." Efficiency and effectiveness were the order of every day.
As the daughter of a Master Herbalist/musician (mother) and bodybuilder/ musician/ policeman (father), wellness, discipline and the stage have always been the way of life.

As a child, I was fascinated by my mother's stories of performing with members of Earth, Wind and Fire and other famous musicians and marveled at my father's accounts of being a friend and colleague of Sergio "The Myth" Oliva (3x Mr. Olympia). These experiences piqued a strong interest in stage performance and resulted in years of training in fine arts, fitness and linguistics. I was constantly reminded that the best performers in any field are "complete packages", meaning that they are well-rounded and adept in multiple facets of their chosen field.

To become a complete package, I studied classical piano and vocal performance at Sherwood Conservatory of Music and VanderCook College of Music; martial arts (Hapkido) at Hyun's; Fashion Design and Merchandise Management at International Academy of Design & Technology; herbal medicine at The School of Natural Healing; acting and musical improvisation at ETA Theatre and The Second City; flag, rifle and sabre twirling with South Shore Drill Team and runway/print modeling at Barbizon and The Fashion Connection. I have also studied tap, liturgical, ballet, modern, salsa, ballroom and street dance; speech therapy; actively study psychology, anatomy and nutrition and am a NESTA-certified wellness coach.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each lesson is tailor-made to suit the student's individual needs. Custom action plan will be given to each student on a case-by-case basis. No instruments are used in my lessons, as I train the voice to be a standalone instrument. However, if you would like to accompany yourself with a guitar, piano or percussion instrument, you are very welcome to do so.

*Please note that 15-minute sessions are ONLY available online. In-person sessions must be a minimum of 30 minutes. 31 and 61-minute sessions are for whistle register training only.

Online Disclaimer:
When choosing online lessons, please make sure that your system is functioning properly, that you know how to use the platform, that you have a good internet connection and that you are logged in on time, as no concessions will be made for time used due to technical difficulties.

Timing Disclaimer:
Our time together is very valuable. If you are not on time for your session, the missed portion will not be made up at the end of the session. If I am not on time, I will make up the missed portion at the end of the session or alternate agreed-upon time. No exceptions or make-up sessions will be made for illness, weather, transportation issues (including car trouble), or any other short-notice reason. Rescheduled lessons must be made a minimum of 48 hours in advance and must be made up within the calendar week of the original lesson. If it is not made up within that week, it will still count as a paid session and cannot be made up at a later time.

With regular one-to-one lessons. I listen to your voice then customize a program specifically tailored to your needs.

About Charmaine
Born and raised in London UK to Jamaican/English parents. Currently residing in Sunrise Florida. I have a Bachelor's degree in Education Studies. I have worked in numerous London secondary schools facilitating workshops and several multinational organizations where I developed and facilitated programs for employees at all levels.

I am passionate about developing people, and very much enjoy helping people realize their strengths to achieve their goals. I have 10+ years’ experience in training & development and classroom facilitation. I am currently practicing correctional techniques for accent reduction and English elocution and endeavor to further my studies in this field by completing the Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults.

I have 2 young children, several godchildren, nieces and nephews to whom I provide language
instruction to while remaining patient and consistent. I helped to raise my younger sister who is 12 years younger than me and has a speech impairment, I taught her how to read fluently and speak clearer. I believe this enhanced my love of linguistics, the English language and teaching.

I hope to educate and inspire people from all warps of life and continue my journey of lifelong learning while teaching. My motto is to Love, Share and Build.

As your tutor I will maintain commitment, show you respect and spend time customizing lesson plans for you that are interesting as well as informative. I will expect only the best from you and I will not give up on you.

I look forward to hearing from you.

As a small busines owner working in the sales industry, communication is paramount. For this reason, my colleague suggested I take elocution lessons to help with my accent, and recommended someone who had helped him. Initially I was reluctant to call, but am thrilled I did. Charmaine was a Godsend. She was very tentative, patient, and easy to work with. Thanks to her lessons, not only is my accent gone, my clients are more receptive, and sales numbers have improved dramatically. I would highly recommend her services anyone!

I have been an ESL teacher for a year now, both locally and online. I received my TESOL certification in February 2019. Currently, I tutor Chinese students through DaDa. While both the certificate and experience is with children up to 17, I can work equally well with adults. I have gotten much positive feedback that I would be glad to share!

About Fauzia
I have a master’s degree in Public Administration from the University of Massachusetts. My BA was in English from Smith College with a minor in Government. I am certified in TESOL.
I tutor students at home, in libraries or other public places, and online. I can provide a background check done by Checkr on Sept 4, 2018.
I have been tutoring for about a year now with Varsity Tutors. I have taught reading and comprehension. I do math up to third grade. I also have experience in prepping students for the English evidence-based reading and writing part of the SAT/ACT. With older students, I work best in English and Social Science.
I am approved to tutor in 20 subjects and received high scores in these areas.
I am excellent in all aspects of English - language, literature - from reading comprehension, vocabulary, essay editing and proofre
ading to writing. I also am knowledgeable in government and history - American, European and World. I am very aware of current events and how they relate to academics and the patterns of the past.
Since I began tutoring, I have explored many educational resources available online to help students. As part of my continuing education, I am working on how to best use them in my lessons. I have subscribed to at least 16 different web sites (ex. Quizlet, Readworks, etc.) at my own expense to continually improve my skills. I go over and above to find materials that helps my students. I am also a member of the National Tutoring Association.
I try to make difficult subjects accessible, easier to understand, and even fun. I do my best to always be positive, patient and supportive of the student’s challenges and efforts. This is the background of my teaching style.
I would work with the student’s existing curriculum and help them with their assignments. I strive to go beyond with related subject matter to further expand their knowledge, ease, and grasp. I design lesson plans tailored to their specific needs and likes – everyone is different. I strongly believe that teaching is best-done one-on-one and facilitated by conversation - where the student and I work as a team. I have worked with students in all levels – elementary, middle and high school.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. Please feel free to ask any questions.
