View Full Profile

I currently work for and have been extensively trained by The VIPKID organization where, over the internet, I teach children from China to speak English. I have won praise from both my students and their parents for my empathetic and patient approach.

About Amy
I have been a voice, acting, and teacher of creative arts for over 25 years. My background includes ten years of classical voice training with Maestro Julio Berrocal, as well as vocal training through the Feldenkrais approach with Marcy Lindhiemer. In acting, I have studied with renowned Stanislavsky scholar Sonia Moore and Master acting teacher of the Strasberg Method, Marcia Haufrecht. I received a B.A. For comparative literature and creative writing at the State University of New York at Purchase and have recently completed my Master's degree in social work at Walden University.
I believe, within all of us, Is the ability to express something distinctive and original. I work to help students discover their unique voice, whether it be through singing, acting, or writing. I share with my student'an array of tool to gain the ability a
nd confidence to achieve their goals. I empathize deeply with the challenges students may face when pursuing a life in the creative and performing arts, having worked professionally in those areas for most of my adult life. I believe, it is the teacher's job to respect each student's individual process of learning.
My students have gone on to become recording artists, Broadway performers, movie actors, Blues and cabaret artists, and published writers.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice
I am an empathetic teacher, sensitive to the student's individual process of learning. My singing lessons usually start with breathing and relaxation exercises. Vocal technique exercises come next. When the student is fully warmed up, we will begin to work on songs. It is important that students be a part of the process of picking material since the more personally they respond to the material the more apt they are to become engaged in their lessons. After three to six months beginning students will have gained an understanding of the fundamentals of breathing, relaxation, and basic performance skills. With more advanced students the focus will be on range extension and the on-going development of vocal style through song interpretation and performance related exercises.
Acting
As an acting teacher and coach, I tailor my classes to the needs of each student. I utilize improvisatory and sensory techniques to help unleash spontaneity. I also encourage the students to use their personal experiences as a way to access a full range of emotions. I enjoy working with the student on script analysis, so as to discover the underlying motivations of the character the student is working on.
Creative and Lyric Writing
I use prompts as a way to get the student writing. Often, I will ask the student to write for stretches of time without editing themselves. It is important to unleash imagination before beginning the process of editing. Many times it is the unexpected that is the most compelling.

*** Studio Equipment ***
home- 10 minutes away from Manhattan with piano, seating for parents
-practice studio seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a piano, cd/mp3 player and an large library of songbooks to work from. The student should bring sheet music of songs they want to work on and a recording device.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching how to sing rock, pop, musical theater, jazz, and blues without hurting the voice as well as method acting instruction.

I have a vast experience teaching English as a Second Language. I did it for almost 20 years in my home country, Portugal and am now teaching it in a college.. I have worked with different age groups, from 5 year-olds to adults. I understand the difficulties of learning a new language and I try to provide intensive practice in the four major skills in language learning: speaking, reading, listening and writing. I am very patient and enthusiastic.

About Helena
I am a native speaker of Portuguese and got my degree in English (ESL) and French Teaching in my home country, Portugal. I have been teaching foreign languages and ESL for more than 20 years and am comfortable working with all age groups. I taught 17 years in Portugal (ESL and French; 6-12 grades and Adult Education Programs) and ever since I moved to the US in 2010 (Portuguese and Spanish in a corporation, and tutoring all four languages at home or online). I am a very patient, motivated and enthusiastic teacher and I always adjust my teaching methods to the student's age, needs and purpose. I never give up on a student and I am sure I can help him/her attain his/her full potential. I believe anyone can learn a new language but consistent repetition and refreshing before, during and after class is needed. I expect the student to be resp
onsible, patient and persistent in his learning process and I am willing to help him/her on the way.

Hi, my name is Taylor! I teach ESL to both children and adults. My specialty is business English. I majored in Marketing with minors in Economics and Accounting so I can teach you both formal business language as well as common jargon you might hear in a work environment. I previously taught English in China but got homesick, so I decided to teach online. My writing skills are well above an average person's so if you need me to proofread something or just help improve your writing skills, I would be happy to help!

About Taylor
Hello! My name is Taylor. I’m 22 years, but I will be turning 23 next month. I am a citizen of the united states, and I live right outside Atlanta, Georgia. I have been working as a kindergarten teacher in China for the last few months, but I got homesick so decided to move back to the US. However, I really did enjoy teaching, which is why I decided to pursue teaching online.
My hobbies include drawing painting and team sports like volleyball
I also love watching sports like basketball and football. I would say my personal English language skills are strongest when it comes to the written word. I studied writing a little in college but also wrote for and eventually became the Editor-in-Chief of my university's newspaper. This not only gave me writing and editing skills but also gave me a much larger vocabulary. While I think the Engli
sh language can be complicated at times, I love learning new languages, and I think I can be of help to students learning English.
I have spent time learning Korean and Spanish before, so I know exactly what types of things students find easiest and hardest to understand, and I also know that the more practical use you get, the better you will get at the language. My lessons will be focused on building those practical skills, not just learning particular words in phrases that might sound good, but won't give you the foundation you need to learn in the future.
