I have more than nine years of language teaching experience. I have learned five languages over the years in China and overseas. I started tutoring Chinese students (age 8-16) English and Chinese when I was 19 and I founded my first summer camp in China when I was 20. Students who had registered for my summer camp increased from 25 in 2010 to 86 in 2016. I've gained very valuable skills and perspectives in teaching, not just as a teacher, but also as a student--students are my teachers too--I've learned there are always places that I can improve and better help them learn languages. Students' "needs" and "wants" are prioritized. It helps students achieve their goals while combined with students' "lacks" in lesson planning. Students should get involved in the lesson planning process.

We could not be happier with the lessons, preparation and structure. Our child enjoys the study and is enthused. The ease with which virtual sessions and textbooks are integrated is refreshing and aligns with what we expect outside of our local school district

Guifang is very patient and helpful. I am looking forward to our remaining lessons.

Guifang is an outstanding teacher. I started at zero and did not know where to start. She has planned out my learning journey and got me up to speed really fast. She makes the lessons fun and engaging. The lessons have been tailored to my needs.

Guifang's experience as a teacher shines through in her lessons.

Clare could not be more supportive, patient, and willing to facilitate changes to schedules. If you are new to this instrument, or already proficient, you will have a nice experience under her instruction. I am an adult student, and I have unique challenges. She has accommodated me in a way that has motivated me to write this review without her asking me. That should tell you something.
Layla
Clare is not only a wonderful oboist but a wonderful oboe teacher. She takes the time to put technique first which made a huge difference in my playing. I would definitely recommend her as a teacher!
Todd
Clare is a wonderful oboist who plays with emotion and that same energy transfers into her teaching.

Alex has inspired my son to love playing music for the rest of his life. I can't think of a more wonderful gift. His technique in teaching allowed my son to enjoy learning guitar by playing songs he wanted to play. This made him want to practice just for the fun of it! Alex taught my son from the time he was 9 years old until he was 15. The easy going, positive attitude Alex exudes encouraged my son along his journey and made a strong bond and connection between the two of them. I wholeheartedly encourage anyone who would like to learn to play guitar to sign up for lessons with Alex!

Alex is a superb teacher and is very patient and well schooled. I look forward to my lessons every Friday.

Chase was way behind reading in the first grade. It was becoming a serious problem as Chase grew to hate school. That is, until Miss Becky came to help.

Mother, father, teachers, and grandparents all tried to help. But none of us could get to him…he completely shut down. His tears and frustration were heartbreaking for all of us.

In three months of lessons with Chase and coaching for the adults (we changed our approach entirely), Chase not only caught up with first grade reading, but was more than ready for the second grade.

As Chase entered the second grade, we continued lessons with Miss Becky to ensure that Chase did not fall behind. He did very well that school year...what a huge difference from the previous year! He got to the point where he could read everything in front of him. The entire family was elated, especially Chase! Now he could read and understand vocabulary words that were one and two grades ahead of him. As he enters the third grade, reading is no longer a nightmare!!

With Miss Becky's academic knowledge and her very special approach to teaching children, she has made one boy and his family very happy!

Thank you, Miss Becky, from the very bottom of all of our hearts!

Becky helped my children immensely! She was able to assess their knowledge base, highlight areas that required improvement and fine tune those areas they were doing well in. She was engaging, encouraging, organized, clear and concise with her teachings, which resulted in enormous growth. We highly recommend Becky and can not thank her enough for her dedication and fun teaching methods.

My approach to teaching jazz vocal is based upon the many years I have played bass for truly great jazz vocalist. I have on my gigs as a bass player also sang jazz. With this knowledge, I will share what I have learned from the great jazz singers to my students.

Jazz vocal can be interpreted in many styles. I will guide my students to what type of jazz style they aspire to.

I've completed about 1 year of lessons with Carolyn, and my experience has been exceptional.

Carolyn is insightful and encouraging. She knows when to offer critical feedback and when to offer positive feedback based on her student's temperament. She also paces progress based on the student's aptitude, too.

I'd recommend Carolyn for any beginning string musician without any hesitation.

Basic Sewing Stitches for Beginners

When it comes to sewing, if you’ve only familiarized yourself with the basic running stitch, then it’s time to broaden your horizons. There are many different types of sewing stitches that allow you to achieve certain goals.

Sewing at Home: 3 Easy Sewing Projects for Children

The energy that my first time sewing students bring to the very first class is wonderful. They are so excited about the creative possibilities that learning to sew will bring them. Often this excitement is tempered by the fear of using a sewing machine. I start by encouraging them to do some easy sewing projects for children, so they can get comfortable with using a sewing machine. It is also a great way to learn some very basic sewing skills.
