My teacher and I spoke by phone for my first lesson, but her phone had poor reception so I was not able to get the benefit of a full lesson. The second and third lessons were unsuccessful as well I need an alternative so that I can work with another teacher locally. I am not familiar enough with this on line process to be successful with my lessons. I have paid for lessons that i have not received. Please advise.

About Randy
I have a Masters degree in Theatre History and Criticism (Theatrical Critical Theory). I have teaching experience and have been exposed to many different types of teaching styles and locales, (i.e. classroom, studio).I have a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts with a focus on acting, Academia.com holds some of my work and I can certainly offer more.
I have always been an actor first, simultaneously I have believed that teacher's are born not bred. At the risk of tooting my own horn; I am both, an actor and a teacher with more than a few credentials to support those facts. Peace and Kind Regards

I am a native Chinese language speaker and also a current nursing student at College of DuPage. I love volunteering and interpretation for all kinds of people. Here, I'd love to help others to understand the language I usually speak. If I can do some specific subjects, I would like to help students to understand the material for mathematical and psychological statistics, sociology, psychology: Life Spin, Humanities, and Chinese and French history. Actually, I don't have any experience for teaching Chinese Mandarin. However, I have 2-yrs experience for teaching kids art design at my weekend school.

About Victoria
Hi! I am a teacher, pianist, songwriter, and arranger. I spent the last two summers touring as the pianist for a Christian vocal group. I have recorded three separate albums both as pianist and vocalist. I am just entering my ninth year of teaching!

I received my Bachelor's of Education in math and science. This had been my goal since I was 14. I have loved these subjects ever since I can remember, and teaching them always Was a dream of mine!

Oddly enough, it was during my math and science studies that I really and truly fell in love with music. I have played the piano since I was 4 and can remember always singing in the car and around the house, but while in college, I was given countless opportunities to perform and improve my abilities. So, I decided to go back to school and finish my Masters of Music Education.

Once finished wi
th college, I took a job as a special education teacher. And I found yet another passion! I so enjoy teaching these special students! They are such a treat! My main focus with these students has been reading and math, but I have recently begun to give piano lessons to students who have been diagnosed with autism and Down's syndrome. This is possibly the most rewarding thing I have done! I have seen music become a lifeline to some of these students. A special skill that they can develop on their own at a pace they enjoy!

Regardless of age or skill level, I look forward to meeting you and helping you to further your education!!

I utilize all these skills to help my students become stellar singers. I have a B.A in Arts & Science, M.A in Communication & Training and another M.A in Education & Curriculum.

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression. Additionally, I provide my students with training on song selection, soundscapes, stage presence and career building tools.

Whether you dream is to sing in publi
c or to make singing your lifelong career; I am the person who will help you elevate yourself.

I have never sung in public but it was always a dream of mine to be able to sing a solo in front of my family and friends for the holidays. I heard about Ms. Lydia through friends and asked her to teach me to sing. She gave me a free consultation to determine what my needs were and then set up a plan to help me reach my goals through the lessons that she gave me. Fast forward to last Christmas, I surprised my family by singing a ton of Christmas favorites and I am preparing to do the same this year. Thank you Ms. Lydia
