About Takosha
I Attained a Master's degree due to a sincere love to teach hungry students. Within my professional history, I have been elected to become a certified trainer to teach representatives the importance of leading students to a higher education within the collegiate environment. It is my duty as a teacher, trainer and instructor, to empower students to believe and always be true to their voice and academic education.

In addition to voice teaching, I am an online college instructor covering general courses and business courses. I also provide continuing education courses for businesses and organizations. In addition, I am a home school teacher for my own children. Therefore, I am experienced in working with adult students and youth. Please see the list of subjects that I tutor and feel free to request a subject that may not be listed.

Voice and singing has been a part of my life since birth. I sing and lead others within the church and fellowship environments. While in the military, I formed a choir in Iraq during the Iraqi Freedom War and received the Director’s award. The choir was full of soldiers and airmen, and we were all given a sense of peace in the middle of war through the singing of blended angelic voices. I have performed in the U.S states and other countries for Generals, Colonels and the like. Locally, I support the military through events in singing the National Anthem for SCAD, Savannah State, and Armstrong Atlantic University. I also lead within the music ministry of Harvest Light Church.

I taught at Charisma Studios and worked side by side with students within the Broadway Dreams Foundation and many gifted people in Atlanta, Georgia. I have taught students within a Georgia State Youth Challenge program to challenge not only their voices but their character to move forward in life. I'm currently singing in Savannah and South Georgia areas. The voice inside of me grows daily and I live to share with others what I experience everyday of my life.

*** Lesson Details ***
When a student chooses to work with me, he or she will gain much strength through my teaching style. I enjoy listening to the student to pinpoint their individual need. I am very attentive to detail to ensure the student will receive everything that he or she has come to receive. I will do all that I can to the best of my ability, and with everything that I currently know and have learned. I learn from students everyday, therefore I am not the only teacher in the lesson.

When students reach the 3 month mark in voice, they will be able to hear themselves and correct their mistakes on their own. They will know if they are an alto, tenor or soprano or maybe all 3! These are the first steps to becoming a teacher themselves one day. At the 6 month point, students will have the confidence to be able to blend with other voices. If students pay attention and continue to practice they will be on their way to take steps to begin the solo and leading stages.

Within the aspect of academic tutoring, the students will learn new methods and techniques suitable for them in order to gain more confidence in the subject that is challenging them. Everyone learns differently, it is my passion to find out how the student learns and to apply the best practices and techniques to their learning experience to ensure their success in that subject.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Office/music studio setup with keyboard and computer.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The Voice
Subject Books and tools

*** Specialties ***
I teach students to sing from their diaphragm which helps them to breathe better while singing. It brings a smoother sound and it does not strain the voice. I also teach pitches and volume concerning specific songs being taught. The voice warm-ups and songs that are incorporated into the lesson, help to train the ear. It is important that a voice student learns how to hear the sound of music, so he or she can sing with any instrument including another voice:-)

Academically, I learn the student, so the student can learn.

About Necole
I am a hard of hearing and fluent in American Sign Language who has been teaching ASL private lessons since 2008 and is currently available to teach lessons at your home, at public setting, and online]. I am currently an ASL teacher at High School in the Atlanta area and work with students with a learning difference. I specialized in differentiating ASL lessons for students who struggle with language. I have helped students improve their signing skills, increase sign vocabulary words, a better understanding of ASL syntax (word order), better their receptive (reading signs) skills, and help with their ASL homework assignment.

I received my training at Gallaudet University in 2007 where she received a degree in Sociology and Government. As an expert in my field, I look forward to helping new students achieve their goals.

I pace our lessons and over explain a technic to make certain the client gets the concept in a HUMORFUL, JOYFUL way. Patiently we apply it to a song that is your target song or to how and what you want product or YOU you want to sell to clients/your job/your promotion/ your new career.
With two masters degrees in voice and speech-language pathology, with specializing in eliminating chronic hoarseness and giving you the perfect foreign accent, I am a premier singing teacher who still sings at jazz jams sessions and former university professor of Kristin Linklater and Alexander methods. I previously was a full time professor of voice and music education, a Fulbright instrumental/vocal teacher at high school level, an elementary music supervisor. Presently, I am a film experienced screener for festivals, play bass guitar, I teach in pers
on onsite in a group, on Skype, and in Buckhead Atlanta 1:1 pitching your voice as an actor or salesman or singer. Clients love how I mold at least one technique to your speaking & singing voice the first 30 minute session.

Love the lessons with Sara Ann - informative, interesting, and always helpful! She is a true speech master who can clearly identify what is missing and find excellent tools to fix it. of My first language is Russian and I was always excited to minimize its presence when I speak English. I tried some online videos but realized unless someone in person points you to what exactly sounds wrong, there won't be any results.
Sara Ann is awesome in explaining details and makes it all smooth and easy. I can really see improvements. Highly recommend!

About Rae
I am fluent in Spanish as a result of taking lessons from kindergarten through college.

My Spanish teachers have come from Panama, Venezuela, Guatemala, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Peru, and Spain which allowed me to learn a variety of dialects in the process. For instance, my teacher from Spain taught me a completely different alphabet from the set of letters used in Mexico, and he also taught me the differences in pronunciation and certain vocabulary with Spain compared to other Spanish-speaking countries. Moreover, I’ve had a few teachers from the United States who were well-studied and provided extensive knowledge on speaking Spanish.

Learning Spanish was one of the best investments I’ve ever made. I consider this an investment because it takes sincere time, effort, and commitment to master the language, and the payoff is exploring a new s
kill, and opening a gateway to Spanish-speaking populations and learning about their respective cultures. It’s been easier to relate to those who speak Spanish, natively or taught, and it provides a sense of community. Not to mention, if there’s ever an emergency and the person you are speaking to only speaks Spanish, you can communicate with them and find help faster.

I encourage everyone to learn Spanish. For me, it’s been a journey of self-discovery, patience, and triumph. Perhaps you will enjoy the benefits of your journey, too.

Hi, thanks for reading about me. I teach elementary school ESOL and Reading intervention classes in Georgia. I love teaching the English language and reading so much that I also tutor online and in person in the evenings and on weekends.

About Isaac
Every one of my students say it's fun to have lessons with me! They learn the best English and have fun while doing it. I am disciplined. know my craft, have over 20 years experience and understand the difficulties of learning a new language. I took French courses in high school, at Indiana University where I received my B.A. in English, and in NYC at the Alliance Francais and with private teachers. I also learned German while teaching dance and performing as a singer/dancer in Munich, Germany without the benefit of any formal instruction. I fully understand what language learners go through. physically , mentally, and emotionally. I am, also, an excellent writer and enjoy teaching the skill to students. I have helped a young Russian businessman, transplanted to Mannheim, Germany, who would barely open his mouth during lessons and knew p
recious little about sentence structure, learn to speak and write well enough to make a 5/6 test score on his GMAT. I helped a Spanish student speak well enough to get a new IT job with Adidas at their home base in Germany. I helped a young, 16 year old, Japanese student, transplanted to Holland, improve his English so that he was able to pass his proficiency tests with flying colors. And we all had a great time getting there! I love teaching and I love working with students who want to be taught!!

A friend recommended Isaac as an English teacher two years ago. We've been working together since then, and thanks to Isaac, I've made significant progress with my English. With his experience, Isaac quickly recognizes the needs of the students and approaches them purposefully and very professionally. Thinking of the advances I could make with Isaac, it is now possible for me to start a job in an international company.

During many years of cooperation, I have not only found a good teacher in Isaac, but also a good friend!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Isaac for the excellent cooperation.
