About Maggie

I have been teaching violin for about 4 years and playing for over 25. Due to COVID, I switched to Zoom lessons, and it has been surprisingly awesome! Anything I teach in person translates to Zoom, and this makes learning the violin more accessible than ever. I teach using the Suzuki Method and S

Maggie gave me violin lessons way back when I was in high school, and when I decided to pick up my violin again as an adult, Maggie was the first person I thought of to call. I don't know where I would be as a student without Maggie's patient, consistent, and thoughtful teaching style. I have ADHD and carry a lot of insecurities from childhood about my ability to stick with an instrument, and Maggie meets me where I am every single time. Maggie listens to my goals with the instrument and tailors lesson plans and teaching styles to my specific needs.

10/10 would lesson again -- especially for students that are daunted by the process of learning an instrument or who will benefit from a compassionate, trauma-informed educator who has experience working with neurodivergent students.

Maggie is an excellent teacher! Super patient and great at breaking things down into parts that are easy to pick up and remember. I'm often a very frustrated learner, but Maggie has been amazing about encouraging at the exact moment it's needed (often before I even fully realise I need it!). Starting to learn violin as an adult was daunting, but something I had wanted to do since I was young, but it hasn't been the impossible task I thought it would be -- and that's definitely due to having engaging instruction that makes learning both challenging and fun!

I have been teaching professionally for 20 years. I have a specific teaching curriculum with an emphasis on proper techniques to ensure your clients keep coming back. Within two weeks of lessons, you will be able to be confident in your skills and abilities! Hair styling and hair braiding is not a recent trend. The word Braid means a complex pattern created by intertwining three or more strands. A braid can be formed by any flexible material such as fibers, wire, thread, or hair. This course will cover all aspects and types of hair braiding.
With a little work and practice, you will become an expert as this self-paced course is designed to help individuals who would like to do hair braiding on their own and for the aspiring hair braiders who would like to start a hair braiding salon.

About Regina

I have a passion for teaching people to sing to the best of their ability with the instrument they have been given! I want to teach others to sing like THEM, not like someone else or in a certain style, but to unlock their potential! There aren't shortcuts, but we can be relaxed, comfortable, and laugh on the journey to improvement! This is first and foremost a safe space to make mistakes and learn the correct way to use our bodies to sing. I have a bachelor's degree in music and performance from the University of North Georgia and have been teaching lessons for over eight years with students of all ages and backgrounds. I am excited to share what I have learned to help YOU sing to the best of your ability!

I want to teach you how to shine! With over 10 experience in teaching, my goal is to make you as comfortable as possible with your instrument. Singing is about finding YOUR voice. It's there. We all have one. Let me help you take control of your voice so that you can share it with others confidently.
I studied voice under Florence Birdwell at Oklahoma City University. I spent five years on the road touring with Broadway shows. As a singer/songwriter, I've opened for Jewel, The Steve Miller Band, and many others.
Let's work together to expand your repertoire and get you comfortable with multiple genres and singing styles.

Zelda started my lesson with the very basics, which I told her I really needed to avoid my getting frustrated (as I had when I originally tried to learn the ukulele all on my own). She taught me the names of the different parts of the ukulele and how to hold my instrument. Zelda also helped me properly tune my ukulele, taught me a mnemonic phrase to remember the names of the strings and taught me finger placement for my first two chords . . . all in a half hour lesson. Now I’ll practice strumming and changing between these two chords until it becomes more natural for me and we meet again for next week’s lesson!

Have really enjoyed my singing lessons so far with Zelda! Scheduled them for enjoyment as a destress from work. Booked my next five lessons and am very excited

"Perfect temperament for working with my 7 year old. Sung Je K adapts to my sons whims and, when needed, drew him back into the lesson using them. Ex. My son, on a suger high from a holliday party at school, started blurting out random words. Sung Je K. Took those words, and used them in the lesson. It was fantastic.

"My son Nicholas (10 months old) and I have been taking French classes with Elsa since February and she is an absolutely delightful and effective French teacher. I really enjoy her classes as does my little boy. He enjoys the songs, the games, and the colors immensely and hears native French while he plays! I enjoy practicing the French I already know, learning new vocabulary and learning new games to play with my child in a language I have come to love.

Elsa is a very cheerful young lady, wonderful with Nicholas, and has a real talent for explaining French grammar and the nuances between French and English. I enjoy getting to ask her my questions and benefit from her knowledge on an adult level, just as I enjoy watching her engage with my son on his level. She is clearly very experienced in teaching young children and makes learning lots of fun for them. Anyone looking to learn French themselves and have their child begin French at an early age will really benefit from Elsa's classes."

Italian Grammar: Exploring Cognates and False Cognates

Italian grammar can be a tough thing for beginners to master. Below, Italian teacher Giulio G. gives a brief lesson in recognizing Italian cognates and false cognates... Although English and Italian belong to two different language families, they have lexis similarities. In fact, it is estimated that around 30 percent of the English vocabulary comes from Romance and Latin sources. It's for this exact reason why it is possible to find many cognates--or words that sound or are spelled …
