I'm an intermediate player who needed refinement and refresher of my core techniques. I went to Elizabeth because she has a background in both fiddle & classical. After watching me play, she affirmed that which I was doing correctly and then helped me to improve where I was lacking. I would recommend Elizabeth.

"Phonics" are the basic foundation of all alphabet-based writing. For learning to read English, students learn best when taught a combination of phonics and sight-words. (English is full of words that are NOT spelled phonetically; however, the rules of phonics do have a definite place in learning to read English.)
With beginning readers, I incorporate songs and rhyme to help children hear and understand phonics. I also use rhythm/percussion to help children distinguish syllables.

About Linda

"Marta was my favorite teacher in High School! I took her class (Marine Biology) not expecting to be amazed by the subject or the material. But, by the end of the class I had already signed up for another one of her classes. Marta engages her students and facilitates the growth of a newfound passion by sharing her own enthusiasm and vast knowledge on whatever subject she is teaching. I always have appreciated how patient she is and her willingness to spend as much time outside of class in order to make sure her students really understand what is being taught. I highly recommend Marta as a teacher, but only if you are prepared to learn a lot and become passionate about whatever subject she teaches you."

If you can get her I highly recommend it.
She covers all subjects and specializes in science by making it fun and entertaining.
