I am an avid reader myself, and I have experience with students who have dyslexia, ADHD, or for whom English is a second language, as well as students who may just need a little bit of extra practice/help.
I have a good sense of what aspects of reading are difficult for students, and often incorporate music, rhythm, rhyme, drama/acting, and humor, to help struggling readers.

About Linda
*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not typically provide any equipment - but I am willing to select and purchase books for the students to learn from (cost of books to be reimbursed by the student/parent) when requested to do so.

I am also willing to provide stick-on note-names for the keyboard, for young children.

The students must have their own instruments, and provide a folder for sheet music and notes/instructions.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar, I specialize in the following styles: jazz, rock, blues, folk, bluegrass, and children's songs.
Piano: I prefer electronic keyboard to acoustic piano, but am happy to teach beginning students on a regular piano as well. I teach note-reading, playing by ear, and theory, with en emphasis on rock, pop, and folk music. I include arranging, chord theory, and use of the many features of an elec
tronic keyboard, in the lessons.
Bass Guitar: I teach rock, pop, funk, and country music on bass.
Banjo: I teach bluegrass, country, and some blues and rock music. I can also teach a bit of old-timey frailing/clawhammer style.
English and Reading: I am highly qualified, to tutor/teach English (spoken, written, and reading comprehension) to both native English speakers and to those learning it as a second language.
*** I am particularly good at working with children who have a.d.h.d. and other learning disabilities!

Linda is easily the most patient and welcoming person I've ever worked with. She has incredible knowledge over a vast array of topics and she is eager to share with others. This, in my opinion, is the most important quality of all teachers. Her lessons have proved a great way to build a solid base in my field of interest. as well as providing me with a well rounded and wonderful mentor that I'm sure to rely on for many other lessons in the future- banjo or otherwise!

About Kristin
Hello!

I received a Bachelor's in Music Education and Performance from Drake University in Flute and Piano. Currently pursuing a Master's in Music Therapy.

At Drake, I received a musical scholarship covering 80% of my tuition costs.
I was also honored to sit as Principal Flute in both the Drake Symphony Orchestra and the Drake Wind Symphony, the top performing groups at the University.

I started to play the flute and piano in second grade, and
my love and passion for music have only grown and matured since then.

I enjoy sharing what I've learned, and learning from my students as well.

I am excited and thrilled by the opportunity to work with you!

My first piano lesson turned out to be so much more than I could have ever expected. My teacher, Kristin is so engaged in the lesson and so very well prepared. We covered so much in such a short time. She made every minute both fun and informative while providing a very friendly environment in her studio. I feel very fortunate to have found such a really competent music teacher.

In addition to teaching for Cleveland schools, I currently teach 20 private sessions each week, 1st through 12th grade, as well as college stud

I am patient, friendly and many students tell me that I explain concepts more effectively than their teachers. I am available weekdays or weekends, days or nights, throughout the entire year. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have regarding my experience and teaching methods. While it should go without saying, I have a clean background that has been verified by the FBI and BCII.

1. most diverse subject matter
2. widest student age range

As you can see I’ve written a review for Matthew regarding my daughters success (her test was last year) so I’d like to write one for my son also. My son was not driving at the time and Matthew agreed to drive to our home and teach him for an additional nominal fee. My son also took multiple tutoring sessions with Matthew and learned something new every time. He felt confident going into the test, confident in his ability to complete the exam and do well on it. Matthew takes his time with each individual and works with their specific needs. My children needed help in different areas of the ACT and Matthew was more than capable of helping them in those areas. My sons ACT score also went up 4 points after working with Matthew! I can’t say enough how professional, kind and thorough he is.

With experience tutoring beginning to advanced readers, I can help you at any level! I use a method based on a combination of sound fluency and sight words. After assessing your skill level, I will gradually build your skill until you become an established reader!

About Kristin
I love to learn, and love to find creative and fun ways to help others learn! I am patient, caring, reliable, and willing to go the extra mile to help my students achieve their goals. My tutoring experience includes Geometry, Pre-Algebra, Elementary Math, English, Spelling, Reading, and Reading Comprehension. I have experience working with children with Attention Deficit Disorder and behavioral disorders, and seek to help all my students grow both academically and personally.
With Master's degrees from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and the University of Texas at Arlington (Social Work) specializing in counseling, I am also in a unique position to teach Bible studies and provide Life Coaching. My heart is to help others find the path that God has designed uniquely for them, and experience a full and satisfying life (Joh
n 10:10). I look forward to meeting and working with all my clients, each one a person of great worth!

I teach students how to comprehend material. Specifically, I address skimming for particular kinds of information including the Purpose of the piece, what Terms are important, and how the Terms are used to fulfill the purpose. This approach is used very effectively to precise notes on the relevant information. From the notes, I teach students how to anticipate test questions and prepare for them.

About Christopher
I philosophize. It is what I do. This means I think about reality and happiness for a living. I can teach you about rationality—yes, there is such a thing. It is likely not what you think. I specialize in metaphilosophy. It is indeed philosophy about philosophy—one probably does not love one’s field more than this. Of this I focus on philosophical problems and solutions; in short, what questions are we trying to answer and to what extent may we answer them. I am also well trained in rationality, logic (propositional, mathematical, first-order predicate, modal, set theory, decision theory, and game theory), metaphysics (especially causation and mereology), ethical theory, and some epistemology. I have a good knowledge of the history of philosophy. Give me enough time to research, and I can tell you about pretty much anything. I
earned a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Missouri-Columbia, though I have a fair amount of education in other areas.

If you've ever struggled to explain to your child why a word says what it does or is spelled the way it is, please join me for a one hour seminar in Phonics for Parents.

To many emerging readers, English can seem to be a frustrating jumble of exceptions. For nearly a century, many students have been taught grossly oversimplified phonics that generate thousands of exceptions. That approach works for some students, but many struggle - especially rule-following, logical, literal students. Indeed, nearly two thirds of 4th and 8th graders read below grade level.

Thankfully, English follows a deliciously rich and robust code with remarkable consistency - and in fact, fully 98% of English words are phonetically regular. The Phonics for Parents seminar is one hour of intensive instruction designed to give literate adults the tools needed to unlock the code and become a literacy superhero. You'll come away with insights that have left many wondering "how did I not know this before

About Cindy
Photography is a passion of mine and I love sharing it with others. I enjoy helping others understand the art and science in photography and would be delighted to work with you.

--- REVIEWS ---
Prior students and clients have given me 5 of 5 stars in all 51 online ratings across various websites. Students have told me they appreciate the way I simplify complex topics, such as in these reviews from prior students:

Incredibly helpful
Cindy was incredibly helpful, and really went "above and beyond" in every way. She's extremely knowledgeable and did a tremendous amount of research in order to supplement her work on this job. Saved me many, many hours of potential aggravation — I will definitely continue to rely on her for expertise with all things Lightroom/Photoshop/PostProduction for photography. Highly recommended!

Cindy was very patient and worked well with my low computer skill level. The class was very informative and fun. I believe we hit it off right away. I can't wait for my next class.

Very patient.
Cindy was able to untangle my Lightroom 6 update snarl with patience and humor. She has an excellent grip on the mechanics of Lightroom and communicates well. I recommend her highly.
- Elizabeth S., Middleton, MD

Excellent
Contacted Cindy a few months ago to help me to put together a slide show, clean up my photos, To say that I'm technically inept would be a compliment. At my age (you don't want to know) just about all these new programs give me the shakes. I was using a rather basic photo program and she recommend I take a look at Adobe Lightroom. I was notified that it would look a bit intimidating and was pretty aggressive. That was an understatement. Well, it's been a couple months now and I think the Adobe LR program is absolutely terrific. I've become quite proficient and the program is so inclusive that I'm sure, despite how far I've come along, it will always be able to do what I need with the help of Cindy. She has been very responsive, knowledgeable, organized and very patient. My lessons will be ongoing (every two weeks) and will build upon a strong foundation. Highly recommend Cindy.

My lifelong love of reading and writing has manifested in my authoring two books and being the founder and executive director of a writing organization for children for the past five years. As executive director, I oversee curriculums and facilitate a variety of workshops. My greatest joy is seeing the light in a child's eyes when they have mastered something new. I have taught ages 4-6 in London England as a college intern, I have been the director of an educational program in New York City and I have worked with high school students through a national dropout prevention organization to improve their writing and ability to craft successful college essays. Combined, I have over twenty years working with children and inspiring their greater selves.

Each lesson is personalized and specific to one's ability. Now let's get ready to have some fun!

About Jonita
As a mother of four, my first duty was to be the best and first teacher my children ever had. I have incorporated that love of teaching to other young people.

I believe in setting great expectations and celebrating small accomplishments, they, in turn, lead to bigger ones. I love working with children and have made this my business for over twenty years.

I have a bachelor's degree in psychology, a minor in marketing and am currently working on my master's of fine art's degree in writing. I have self-published two books and am currently working on two more. I have founded the Royal Writers Organization, a nonprofit writing program for children and have brought workshops to children, schools and their community institutions for the last five years.

I was that child who wrote and read under my covers with a flashlight, way af
ter the time my parents told me to go to sleep. I wrote until my pencil forged its resting place on the side of my finger. This passion for writing is what I want for my students, and of which I have succeeded in bringing forth in varying degrees. I enjoy traveling to the worlds that lie within books and look forward to taking my students along with me.

My daughter needed help with her writing portfolio for an audition. I knew that the competition was going to be fierce and while I believe that my daughter has real talent I also knew that she needed help organizing here ideas. Needless to say, she was selected to participate in the writing program. We both know that Jonita’s guidance and collaboration helped her achieve that goal. Jonita’s teaching style is exceptional and refreshing. My daughter hopes to work with her again as she transitions to the next stage of her journey as a young writer.
