Elizabeth is a phenomenal instructor! Both kind and patient, she is incredibly knowledgeable and takes the time to help me understand the nuances of technique or the background of a particular piece of music. I'm nowhere near a natural player, but her approach to structuring my lessons and practice activities fits my needs as a learner, especially considering that I am an adult student juggling a myriad of other responsibilities. Elizabeth is adept at tailoring her lessons and long-term approach to my growth as a player to my skills and challenges, so that I not only immensely enjoy the experience, but also feel the growth I am making each and every week. She's the best I've ever had!!

Education is one of the most valuable things you can acquire. Knowledge stays with you wherever you go and you can use it in the less unexpected situation.

I was born and raise on Peru, South America. I hold a Bachelor's on Biological Science from Roosevelt University with a minor in Chemistry. I have take classes like Molecular Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, Biochemistry, Neuroscience. Also General and Organic Chemistry. General Physics and Math up to Calculus. I offer tutoring on Biology, General Chemistry and Math.

It's amazing how our brain can absorb information in different ways. We can be learning something unintentionally. So whichever your circumstances are we should be open to learn or improve our skills every day. Remember, the process of learning never ends.

Through every shifting interest and every meandering detour, literature has been the primary constant in my life. I'm fresh out of two years of the AP Literature and AP Language curriculum, with consistently high scores and 5s in each (hopefully!), and I'd love to pass on my passion for the written word onto you.

Ironically there is very little I can express on this matter in this context.

Bottom line is this, I guarantee I am great at public speaking simply because I depend on this skill every single day of my life both professionally as the Director of my company, and personally when I meet new people.....

I have enough patience and confidence for the both of us and I am willing to share some with you right now if you just ask....

Thank you for your time and consideration,
Omar J.

When I first began my search for an acting coach I was stressed out because I knew I needed help but I didn't know how to start. Luckily I found the Director, Omar. The Director began by interviewing me to see what my goals and potential were. He then developed a specific lesson plan designed around what he called "The Fundamentals" and I progressed since then. Now after a few months of the Directors support, I know confidently that I am an Actor. I learned things about human behavior and method acting that I couldn't find in any video or online source. The Director somehow made things simple to understand and I'm glad for it. I am not done with the lessons, but since he has supported me and shared his knowledge, the least I can do is share my experience. Thank you Director!

"Excellent tutor! Daniel tutored my 13 year old son in Physics. My son went from being completely lost to getting an A in the class. Very professional, explains topics clearly, connects well with student. My son loved the Skype/online white board method of teaching. No need to go anywhere or sit in traffic. Daniel was flexible with setting up lessons and even made time when urgently needed, like before a test. My son had a great experience and can't wait to learn with Daniel again when he gets to HS physics."
