Wendy P.

Chicago, IL


Bgcheck Background Checked

Using my vocal and acting training, I have worked with many students on improving their speaking voices for public speaking or voice-over work. I use Linklater , and Alexander technique combined with other training to help students overcome their fear of public speaking as well as their technical vocal issues, such as articulation, projection, breathing problems and modulating the voice in a pleasant way. I can help you overcome an overly nasally tone for example or a monotone voice.

About Wendy

I've been teaching private vocal instruction since 2003, and opened my own studio in 2008. I love helping people find their true, authentic voice, which I feel is essential not only for singers but many other people as well! Singing is a great joy, and the voice is one of our primary modes of expre

I will teach students the approaches they need in order to master the English and Reading portions of the ACT exams.

After serious study and practice, I was able to score a 36 in English and 35 in Reading on my own ACT test. I am now able to distill the techniques I learned and employed for others, tailoring them to suit their own individual needs.

I have several years of experience tutoring with a focus on reading and writing. Further details can be worked out via messaging.

I studied music and comparative literature at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Minnesota, a city with a thriving music scene.

Aaron S.


Bgcheck Background Checked

I have published a number of novels, short stories, and poetry, and have been teaching and collaborating with other writers for over fifteen years. My goal is to help you develop your communication skills while gaining a deeper understanding of the essential elements of writing (voice, structure, plot, characterization, setting, style, etc). You will write continually, and we will also learn how to critically analyze and learn from the work of other writers. Whatever genre or form you choose to approach, I can help you get the most of your work.

I had a great experience learning from Aaron. I was a brand new piano player with no knowledge of the instrument or music in general. Aaron was very patient and diligent in teaching me how to set a musical foundation. If you have the pleasure of working with him you will see why he is so highly rated.
