About Linda L.

Close
Tucker, GA

View Full Profile

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 also play and teach old-timey frailing/clawhammer style.
Ukulele: I play and teach all styles of ukulele.
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!

It is my goal to help build your confidence as a reader. I was personally selected by multiple principles in Baltimore County Public School district (BCPS) to teach, and hold the title of Reading Specialist. I have taught over a hundred students, and even completed a leveled literacy workshop that gives teachers the tools to increase elementary student's reading. Many of my students moved up in reading levels, and most importantly felt confident as readers. I will make reading fun, as I implement my background of the Performing Arts into the lesson, "Reader's Theatre."

About Kaira

My education career has afforded me the opportunity to be a Master of Arts Graduate from Syracuse University with a concentration in Television, Radio, and Film. I also attended the University of Nevada Las Vegas where I majored in the concentrations of Vocal and Stage Performance, as well as, Technical Production; here, I received my Bachelors of Arts degree. Also, I received a TESOL certification through an international ESL company, and have acquired accredited Early Childhood education with an emphasis in Reading and ESL from Grand Canyon Univ

I am an active Performing Artist. I have developed many relationships within the industry, and acquired much knowledge on how to become a working artist.

As an educator, I believe that there is no limit to what you can do, my education, passion and goal is to help you become a confident reader at any stage of your life. I look forward to meeting you.

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

Books, short stories, plays will be the focus. Writing about the materials read and testing retention will be only a slightly secondary focus. Assignments will be based on the student's present level of advancement and tailored to that level.

About Randy
I have always been an actor first, simultaneously I have believed a teacher is born not bred. At the risk of tooting my own horn; I am well trained, both as an actor and a teacher with more than a few credentials to support those claims; please peruse my background.

Regarding Texas Hold 'em (poker), I have been playing and teaching the game, and working for online casinos for over thirty years. My approach is simple, requires extreme discipline, but I can show you how to win more than you lose. And this is true is all subjects I teach.

I have a Masters degree in Theatre History and Criticism (Theatrical Critical Theory). I have teaching experience and have been exposed to many different types of teaching styles and locales, (i.e. classroom, studio). My undergraduate degree was a Bachelor's in Fine Arts, sequence acting/directing.

Peace and Kind Regards

About Jonita S.

Brooksville, FL
View Full Profile

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.
