Great teacher! My 3 yo daughter loved her music lesson with Sarah.
Patricia G.
Sarah was energetic, positive, and kind with my daughter, age 11, who was really struggling to get a handle on a song for a play she has been trying to train for. This was her first voice lesson ever. My daughter was drawn in immediately by Sarah’s practical and happy approach and felt more capable and comfortable at the end of the session and is definitely looking forward to the next one. Hard to ask for more than that in a first lesson!

As an artist myself, Art History is my passion. I have always found the history of the arts to be a great way to study the culture of a people and learn how to better understand respect and communicate with them. I have extensive knowledge of Prehistoric art all the way through the 1800's and the movements of Impressionism. My primary focus has been so far the cultures of the middle east and Europe with heavy emphasis on the middle ages and the Italian Renaissance as I lived and studied art in Florence, Italy for two years. I am excited to share my knowledge and guide you through your studies with the arts and I hope to be able to add some unique perspectives as someone who lived in the heart of the birthplace of the Renaissance.

About Cassidy

Art has always been a liberating source of expression and joy for me. I find it fulfilling to facilitate this for my students and see their passion for the process of creation grow along with their skills. I am excited to meet with you and help cultivate your own personal style and hopefully inspir

I am a current student at a Writing M.F.A. program and have been giving comments on fellows' writing as a reader and writer. I also have been helping Chinese students with their English writing and Chinese Writing. I would like to share my writing experience over the years with you and the craft techniques that I've learned from my writing classes. Help you to discover your uniqueness in creative writing. I believe my skills of writing and speaking in multiple languages and my cultural perspectives would also be helpful in your revision process.

Guifang is very patient and helpful. I am looking forward to our remaining lessons.
Henry
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.
Braden
Guifang has been such a great teacher (老师) ever since I started with her a few weeks ago. She takes her time and is very patient, what I love the most though is that there is no rush in trying to fit a schedule with her and she adapts the lessons to the students liking or skill set.

Learning a new language takes time, especially with Chinese where there is so much cultural backgrounds and history of language and I feel that Guifang understands this. She really makes the learning experience stress free as well as enjoyable.

"Daniel helped me with GRE math. We worked on problem solving, numeric entry and quantitative comparisons, all areas I really struggled with. I needed to raise my score by a few points, and I'm confident that Daniel's sessions will allow me to achieve that when I take my test next. Sessions were extremely useful and efficient. He used an online whiteboard, along with Skype, so that I had an easy to see breakdown of all of the problems. Not only did he help with problems, but he also gave me multiple resources to use in the future when studying for the GRE (e.g. great websites, formulas, etc.) I recommend him to everyone who needs help in math!"

You have to set the scene and create a convincing setting, where you readers can immerse themselves and lose track of time. You have to m …

How to Help Your Child With Informational Writing Assignments: Part 1

Informational Writing. Two words bound to lose the attention of any kid (and probably just about every adult) the second they’re uttered…It’s not a phrase that’s quite conducive to awe, wonder, or excitement. And outside of battling a lack of interest, writing itself can be a tedious, frustrating, and scary process that most students do everything they can to avoid. So what can we do? How can we get past all of the barriers that children and students put up for us and for themselv …
