Any level of math and any age

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

I'm Gabriel and I love to make learning FUN and PRODUCTIVE!

Present me with a complex question and I will transform it into a simple scenario.

Students genuinely enjoy solving their own problems and having the skills and tool set to do so.

Physics, chemistry, biology, metabolic pathways, biostatistics, kinematic equations, bond-energy, specific heat, probability maps, computer programming, python scripts, JavaScript, Web Development, these are but few of the fields that come to mind...all of these fields are deeply intertwined into our day to day lives with a little bit of creativity and curiosity.

I am very personable and am looking forward to learning more about you and your tutoring needs.

All the Best,

Gabriel

About Gabriel
I'm Gabriel and I make learning FUN and PRODUCTIVE!

Biochemistry, physics, math, statistics, programming, english...these are just few of the subjects that come to mind which are intertwined with our everyday lives.

With a bit of creativity and curiosity, any subject my student needs help in becomes fun and intuitive.

I empower student's with the skills and tool-set that they need to actively solve their own problems, both during classwork and in life.

Being a personable tutor I get to know my students and aim to form a strong bond so that I can simplify complex questions into scenarios that the student would encounter in their day to day activities.

I am looking forward to learning more about your tutoring needs and will work through lesson plans in a goal-oriented manner to ensure solid results.

All the Best,

Miami, FL

I have a passion for explaining how the physical world works through math and physics along with 10 years of tutoring experience in those subjects, test prep, and mentorship programs. My approach is to use interactive teaching which seeks to involve the student in finding the solutions and reinforcing the concepts as long as necessary to provide the necessary tools to tackle the activities. Lessons typically start with a review of the concepts, reinforcing any areas in doubt and then proceed to exercises where we can put in practice the concepts.

About Juan
I'm a professional Civil engineer with a passion for teaching. Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to teach kids, teenagers, and classmates in a friendly, simple and rewarding way.

My goal is to review the concepts needed to understand how to solve problems and then tackle them in an open way between students and I, forming some sort of discussion where we find different ways to solve the exercises and learn in the process.

Juan and I met in 2008. He actually helped me pass my math classes in my last two years of high school through personal tutoring classes (2008 and 2009). He is very patient and kind to his students. He makes complex math problems seem simple. His background in civil engineering helped him have a vast understanding of different topics such as physics, and mathematics. I don't know what I would have done in high school if it was not for him.
