Cristina is an incredible surf instructor. She's down to earth and motivational. I feel much more confident surfing and catching waves. When I started out I couldn't catch a wave on my own and with her guidance after four lessons I'm catching waves regularly. I have so much fun learning about paddling and pop up techniques both on and off the water. She also has such a wealth of knowledge about the ocean that I can already start to read the waves much better and get an idea of which ones I can catch. I'm excited to continue taking lessons with Cristina!

About Ilona
I am experienced (3 years) in home school tutoring. I mostly work with Florida Virtual School students. I overlook their tests and assignments, and help them with preparations for Discussion Based Assessmemts (DBA). I also help parents with required annual evaluations and how to sign up with home education department.
For my tutoring sessions I use skills that include goal-directedness, I teach how to organize learning in small steps and how to set them up; I always strive to motivate and engage my students to make them interested in learning and have fun; I also use self-control skills to teach how to avoid distractions and I show how to use different focusing strategies. I use positive mind set skills to teach how to use failures as learning opportunities.

I have Masters in Education (2018) with specialization in English, Curricul
um and Education; and Masters in Arts (2012) in Teaching English to speakers of other languages, and Bachelors in Music Education (2010), both from Florida Atlantic University, as well as a degree in violin performance from Chicago.
I studied piano in Chicago for 10 years & taught both piano & violin for over 20 years. I also teach flute & cello for the past 5 years, as I studied them during my Music Education program.
I have taught music for over 24 years using the traditional and Suzuki methods. I am fan of the Essential Elements method and I Can Read Music book for string instruments, and the Alfred's Piano Library for piano. Alfred's piano library can be used for any age as they also have books especially made for adult learners. I also like their music flash cards.
For teaching music theory I mostly used Fundamentals of Piano Theory (9 levels) combined with Master Theory (6 levels) books.

I personalize every lesson, and always set goals for my students. Most of my violin students are members of the Florida Youth Orchestra as well as the Gold Coast Youth Orchestra and my piano students participate in Pompano Beach Piano competition and the annual Piano Guild auditions.
I teach any age and any level, and always stress that learning a new instrument is very similar to learning a new language, it needs a lot of patience, persistence and repetitions. My lessons are customized to my students needs, and are work in progress as they needs may change over time. I always remind my students that music can give them instant gratification when they learn to play favorite songs.
I always encourage my students to tell me about their music preferences, so I can incorporate them in their music lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
All my tutoring sessions include reviews of previously learned material and if possible the use of technology. I use students books but often bring extra study materials if necessary.
All my lessons include technique and reading music. I like to use the Finger Power for piano students and Essential Elements for my string students, and scales for both.
Music theory: I use Master Theory and Fundamentals of Piano Theory books for younger ages, Alfred's music flash cards to support learning notes and musical terminology, and of course the fun part performance.

Besides Essential Elements for strings I also use String Tunes and I Can Read Music to add more fun to the lessons as well as support reading music during the lesson. For piano students I use Holiday Treats book, which comes in 2 different levels: Beginner & Intermediate, so my students have a new songs for a specific holiday.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I always bring violin with me to be able to show what I teach.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The students need to have their books and assigned material ready for tutoring. Instrumental students needs to have their music books, flashcards & instrument available as well as a pencil. I always stress with my students to be organized and prepared for their lesson, this way they will be able to focus better during the lesson. I always bring my violin with me. I also ask that the room where the lesson takes place be free of any distractions, such other siblings or any other noise. The quiet environment helps in faster learning.

*** Specialties ***
I tutor most K-12 subjects and prepare students to take ACT, SAT, GRE tests.
Music genres: Classical, traditional, Suzuki, Popular, Celtic, fiddle, Blues

History is the story about our parents, grandparents, grand-grandparents and so on. Is about how did they live, how did they died and what did they accomplish.

History is about where they build their houses, how did they get along with their neighbors, what stupid mistakes they made and how they fixed them and all other little things that makes a life.

History is about your ancestors. They could have been gold mine diggers, farmers, presidents or kings, teachers, healers or priests.

My teaching method is to make you understand how we became what we are today. If you learn this, then you will not only pass the exams but you may fall in love with the past.

Because to foresee the future you must know the past.

About Camelia
I am a certified history teacher, a writer and a bookseller.
I earned my B.A. in history while in my native country, Romania. My teachers showed me that without knowing my past I cannot understand the present and prepare for the future. Maybe that’s why I ended up as a journalist for more than ten years.
I spent the last ten years in Minnesota, learning the language and meeting wonderful people. I wrote and published a book, while selling other books for readers.
History proved to be my real passion and I am here to guide you through its intricate ways.
In my spare time I write books and make bookmarks. I also work as a bookseller in a bookstore.

I want to share my love of American History with my students. Most students think of history as a list of memorized dates, and there is that component, but there also are living, breathing individuals who created that history. I hope my students take away at least a respect of history that they didn't have before and of course a more knowledgeable view.

About Cathryn
Hello! My name is Cathy and I have been teaching voice (singing) for over 30 years. But don't let that fool you into thinking I'm a stogy old girl who doesn't have a pulse on contemporary music. I teach pop, country, broadway, folk, whatever it is your interested in. I do teach with vocal exercises because without them no changes will be made and that's the whole point right to change your voice? However you do get to sing songs. I teach, so that you will change your voice and succeed in whatever avenue you want. My degree is in Vocal Performance from Northeastern Illinois University and one year of Masters work in Drama from DePaul University.

I also teach ESL, Reading, Writing, History which I have done for the past ten years. I use a variety of techniques since no two people are alike to help you learn English or the Ameri
can lifestyle. I presently teach Caterpillar employees, spouses and children. Let me teach you and see how far we can go.

Thank you.

Cathryn is doing a great job with our 12-year-old son. Not only is she teaching him the basics of singing in a way he can understand and practice, but she is teaching him the mental part which is good for his stress/anxiety in many aspects of life.

Cathy is very patient with my 12 year old, she is teaching her the fundamentals of singing and that singing is more than just your voice. I enjoy watching them stretch and do exercises to strength her core. My daughter also enjoys that Cathy
lets her have a choice in the songs they work on. My daughter also says, "she is fun and funny!"

As a history major, I have an extensive knowledge of both world and US History. Lessons would be individualized to focus on areas that need the most guidance.

About Melissa
I have been teaching since 2006 on a variety of topics. I graduated with an BA from the University of Wisconsin. My degree is in History with and emphasis on East Asian history.

I've taught all age groups from age 2 up to retirees. My teaching experience includes one-on-one and group classes in a variety of settings. I've taught corporate classes, private lessons, small groups, and traditional classroom lessons.

We have a student-centric philosophy of learning. Lessons are generally relaxed and designed to work towards accomplishing student determined goals. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. Special focus on topics like music theory, self-accompaniment, composition, song writing, and home recording are available as well.


What are your personal goals? We'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.

Lessons with small children are more focused on just having fun while developing a good musical foundation, but we prefer for them to have as much personal ownership of their lesson as possible.

Melissa was the perfect teacher for my child. She's warm, engaged, patient -- and very skilled. I think my daughter continued with her piano instruction only because she enjoyed her classes so much! If we hadn't moved an hour away, we would still be going to Melissa. She's awesome! I highly recommend her.

I am a lover of history, particularly American and Chinese. Lessons are tailored for each student’s interest and need.

About Benjamin
I have been teaching music since 2000 when I had my first piano student. I taught music in the K-12 school system for several years and have been a choir director, pianist and accompanist for many years. Though I come from a classical training background , I love everything from broadway ballads to country crooning! I started voice and piano lessons at age 10 and continued through college earning my degree in music education. Additionally, I have been a licensed special education teacher and have the experience of working with students who have varying mental and physical disabilities.

I took AP World History and AP US History in high school. I love analyzing events in history and seeing connections/causes/effects between seemingly unrelated events. I stress long-term understanding instead of short-term memorizing of events/dates.

I also have close to 8 years of math/science tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!

About Bill
I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

I enjoy tutoring (doing it ever since I was in high school for my classmates) and helping other overcome problems that I have encountered myself because it enhances my own understanding and makes me happy that my self-studying is helping others. Sometimes, my students even bring up alternative ways of thinking that I have never thought of before!

Bill is very patient and breaks the material down in a simple way to understand. He's helpful and motivating. With his help, I was better able to understand my assignments and class material. Before his help, I was very confused about java concepts. I would definitely recommend him as a programming tutor!
