Marwa has been very patient and engaging with my seventh grader who is challenged with math primarily due to dyslexia. So far, it seems to be a great student/tutor match and I’m eager to see how this propels my daughter forward towards a successful year. Thank you Marwa for your dedication and excellent work!
Laura Gatto
Marwa helped my son on very short notice understand material from his advanced 8th grade algebra class. He felt such relief after spending time with her and gaining a better grasp of the material. We will definitely be booking Marwa again!

I had a great first lesson with Mel! He was very enthusiastic and encouraging. I appreciate how willing he is to work with me towards my goals, which are pretty specific. I look forward to continuing to work with him on fiddle and ear training!
Kaitlyn
Mel is fantastic! I have only been taking lessons with him for a short time, but I feel like I have really made a lot of improvement! He is extremely patient and really cares about music. You can truly tell he puts his all into his lessons and truly cares about his students. Music is his passion and his optimism and love for music is contagious.

I decided to learn the violin and had no experience or background at all. Mel helped me start off with the essentials and is making sure I know proper form! I am beyond grateful that I found him and recommend him to anyone looking to learn. I promise you won’t regret hiring him to help you along your musical journey. I am most definitely looking forward to all my future lessons! Thank you Mel!
Jack
I have been taking lessons with Mel for almost two months.
As an adult learner who tried to learn violin on my own for the last six months I have found Mel to be a lifesaver.
He has been very patient and has helped me to fix all the bad habits I developed. The lessons are a nice mix of theory, skill development and working on fun songs.
I highly recommend him.

When I started singing in junior high, I accompanied myself with the guitar. Then I went on to study voice privately and learned correct Classical and Belle Canto styles of singing. I've studied for many years and continue to sing and learn, using the best techniques of singing Classical as well as every other style of music. Currently I have a student who has gone on to study to be an Opera Singer and she is doing splendidly!

"I have to update my review now that I've had a bunch of lessons with Amy. People who can do something well and also teach well are rare and Amy is one of those. Before I started with her, I had been doing crochet using YouTube and had taken a couple of local classes. I was pulling things out and starting over frequently because i'd realize i didn't understand/had totally missed something, which was getting frustrating. Even in the live classes the teachers were nice and skilled but they didn't take the time to make sure we understood certain fundamental facts about crochet and what we were doing, focusing more on just getting it done. Amy makes a point of expressing the basic things one needs to know about the stitches we are doing, as much as helping me get the final result.

I looked up online lessons because the quarantine had started and I had purchased a sweater pattern that I really wanted to make, and thought i should be able to accomplish. Many people on Ravelry had complained about the pattern's shortcomings -- some had given up on it, though the people that did complete it, had great results - over 95 people posted pictures of their results, though some aren't quite like the advertised picture. I really wanted to make that sweater though, so I thought it was time to get some real lessons, and found Amy. The way she talked me through the pattern and other patterns, I totally got how to look at patterns and think about them. She lets you know her thought process so you can think it through yourself. Now, when i rip something out to do something over, it's not because i don't know what i'm doing so much as i now know what i'm trying to accomplish. The sweater is almost done and btw, looks just like the picture!! I've realized that it's a great idea to tell Amy whatever i'm thinking and she will give the best advice. Oh, and from the first lesson, she got me getting straight edges easily (now, it makes so much sense but at the time it seemed like a fluke whenever i had a straight edge!)"

"Ok - this was incredible. I go in with a really wonky purl stitch and she was able to recognize what I was doing wrong! I thought I was knitting/purling continental style and she noticed it wasn't that at all - but Norwegian knitting/purling and got me on the right track. I would recommend her in a heartbeat, I have been to two other in person instructors with little success and she was able to fix my problem over zoom!"
