I studied Math up through Calculus Two in college and am highly proficient with any math up through Calculus One.
*****I don't have a current background check through take lessons but have an active ongoing background check through another employer ******
I've been teaching and performing professionally for over 15 years. I have my BA in music and business. I have had some amazing experiences along the way. I've worked with world renowned vocal coaches, sang at Carnegie Hall, and played on various cds to raise money/awareness for charity projects. I'm grateful for all of this, but I love working with students on their music most of all. It delights me to see a student have an "aha" moment where they realize that they have what it takes to be great. I'd love to work with you, but if I don't I hope you reach your goals and have fun doing it ! ~ Carrie Jo ~
*** Lesson Details *** I'm a laid back teacher but you will definitely learn
a lot. I just believe if it starts to not be fun, what's the point? Music isn't just about perfect theory and note placement it's about enjoyment. That's why I tailor make every lesson specifically based on my student's goals. I have students that like a more traditional approach so I use standard method books with them. I also have students that want to learn how to play by ear so we use a less traditional method and I teach them chord structures and how to move around easily on their instrument. My favorite thing to teach is vocal lessons but I love teaching piano and guitar also.
*** Studio Equipment *** The In-Studio lessons are taught on an upright piano or acoustic/electric guitar. Student should bring own guitar. No pets. Waiting room out front for parents.
*** Travel Equipment *** They need their own instrument.
*** Specialties *** I've performed at Carnegie Hall and I've had the opportunity to work with world renowned vocal coaches. I offer that as well as techniques that I've developed to help you reach your goals quickly and with great skill !
Carrie is great! She is very patient, positive and encouraging. We have three members of our household taking lessons from her, and she tailors the lessons for the individual goals, levels and interests of each of us.

It was awesome! Great experience with Carrie and she got me playing within our first lesson! Couldn't be happier!
I've been teaching "basic math" for over 6 years. Most of my kids are between the ages of 9-14. I try to make math fun. We do activities and exercises online as well as work on worksheets that I've made.
A bit of information about myself: I have been tutoring for over seven years and am very familiar with the public and private school systems in Manhattan. I teach everything from Algebra II to American History, specializing in organizational and study skills.
I am a Columbia University graduate. Graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a 3.97 GPA. I currently tutor full-time and also run a music education non-profit, Nvak.
I am meticulous, patient and loving. I invest 100% of my energy in making sure that the kids that I take on are getting the individualized attention they need and that they are becoming more independent and more confident each session.
Please feel free to contact me via the site to let me know, specifically, what the needs of your child are.
Tamar is a professional. She works well with my son and understands where he should be with the subject.

Tamar is a wonderful, dynamic and enthousiastic teacher and my 12 year old daughter had a great time with her.
Tamar knows when to slow down if her student is tired, but is also demanding so as to be sure that progress are made.
It was a pleasure seeing how fast my daughter improved her English and we both appreciated meeting Tamar, who is a great person :)
You will learn whatever your homework needs! I am good with numbers so you’re in great hands!
Lehman College, Bachelors of Fine Arts, Graduate! I am a Musical Theatre Performer. I perform all the time and believe that warm-ups are a big importance when it comes to performing. Technique is something I have been studying for a while, and I am consistently learning what new techniques work for myself too. I teach singing, acting and other subjects too, check them out!
Hello! My name is Jessica! I have tutored math for about 7 years, and would be delighted to work with your student. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions; I would love to hear from you!!
I hold a Bachelor of Music in Clarinet Performance from Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, MD, and am working toward a Master of Education in Mathematics at George Mason University. I have been teaching and tutoring for almost 10 years now. I will officially obtain my teaching license by December 2019, which will enable me to teach secondary Mathematics (grades 6-12).
I have extensive experience tutoring mathematics, SAT (all core subjects and SAT II math 1&2), reading, writing, all the sciences, and music theory. I also have a very small studio and teach piano, clarinet, and saxophone.
Please do not hesitate to reach out! I would love to hear from you :)
I have a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from St. Norbert College, and I am currently studying for a PhD in statistics at University of California, Irvine. My goal is to encourage students to enjoy STEM subjects, especially mathematical sciences because they are such a beautiful way to understand the world. Math is so much more than algebra and geometry, and, if it is truly understood, even those subjects can be illuminating in how we understand the world.
I am a Ph.D. student in Statistics and earned a Bachelor's in mathematics from St. Norbert College in 2016. I have been tutoring for over 10 years now, starting with a my work as a Program Staff at the local Boy's and Girl's Club. Now I just enjoy working with students one-on-one and in small groups.
I love teaching and plan on being a professor after finishing my Ph.D. Further, I am trying to develop classes that students will enjoy and be able to take with them. I hate when I hear people say that they hated stats or math because of this class they had when they were younger. My goal is to change that by creating a learning system that is enjoyable and efficient.
I am an experienced teacher who has been teaching and tutoring math for several years. As both a classroom teacher and tutor, I customize lessons and break down material to help students of all levels to achieve success in the classroom, on tests, and in problem solving, in general. Let's succeed together!
I am an experienced classroom teacher, tutor, caregiver, and leader. I have minors in Music and Spanish, a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, and a Master's degree in Educational Leadership. I have also been in competitive public speaking for several years.
With a solid understanding of education from different perspectives -leadership, students, parents, teachers, and more - I know what it takes to help students achieve at their full potential. I ensure lessons and material are unique to the student, engaging and enjoyable, relevant, and catalysts for growth and success. Test preparation is also a skill I help students excel in. In fact, some of the schools I have been partnered with have even been featured on television.
As a competitive public speaker, I have won awards at the local, state, and national levels. I have also fo
unded, coached, and judged teams and speakers.
As a musician, I have played and/or competed in solos, duets, quartets, concerts and more. I have studied music theory, written my own music, won scholarships, and taught others.
My students vary in ability from autistic and nonverbal, to English language learners, to gifted and talented. I have taught students in rural, suburban, and urban environments in charter, public, and private schools. My students are from a variety of different cultures, religions, and backgrounds. The similarity they share is being proud of their achievements after working together!
My students typically tell me that I am one of their favorite teachers. I believe every student is capable of achievement, and it is my mission to help them get there. I see students greater than they see themselves, and in sharing this, they end up feeling more confident and empowered themselves. My lessons are fun, relevant, effective, and individualized. I can't wait to partner up with you! Let's make your goals happen!
I am a math tutor at Brookdale Community College. I tutor students in a variety of college math courses, going from basic algebra up to Calculus 3. With a good foundation, any topic is manageable. Homework is key and my students have to complete it before our lesson. The key to succeeding in math is to be extremely organized and have a notebook which contains class notes, homework and extra practice problems. I encourage my students to re-write the class notes after they come home from school. This way the students actually understand what happened. Before any of my lessons I ask the student to send me an outline of the topics they would like to go over and I prepare accordingly. This way my time and their time is used efficiently.
Hi! My name is Michelle and I math tutor and piano teacher. I also help Russian natives learn English. I am a math tutor at Brookdale Community College. At Brookdale I tutor students in a variety of college math courses, going from basic algebra up to Calculus 3. As for my piano lessons, my piano students are expected to improve on a weekly basis. In my lessons, besides playing compositions, students will also be taught piano theory and technique. I have mentored students of all ages and can customize a lesson accordingly. I have experience with performing and composing music. I am also fluent in Russian and specialize in teaching English to Russian natives. I prepare Russian speakers for the U.S. Citizenship test. Before any of my lessons I ask the student to send me an outline of the topics they would like to go over and I prepare acco
rdingly. This way my time and their time is used efficiently. Please reach out to me with any questions and to set up a lesson!
I consider Michelle to be one of the best tutors I have had. She helps me understand the material perfectly and is always willing to help me at any time. She helps me see the best in me when it comes to my knowledge on something. I 100% recommend Michelle to everyone!
February 20, 2019
Michelle is super helpful and accommodating! I have only had two lessons but I can feel myself improving already. I have learned so much in the past two weeks and have eliminated some of my bad habits when playing. I'm super grateful that I was able to find her!
From experience, math can transition easily from the most frustrating to the most rewarding subjects. It is always a joyful experience for me to see students put 2 and 2 together and arrive at that glorious correct answer.* I have experience working with elementary and high school students, both privately and in volunteer settings.
Whether the focus is on polynomials, trig identities, calculus, or linear algebra, I am here to help. My process is to break everything down and ask the students questions in order to guide them to the solution. I will do everything I can to help facilitate deep understanding and earning that next A!
My ACT score was 35, with a sub-score of 36 on math. I took Calculus my sophomore year and earned a 5 on the AP Calc - BC test.
Fun fact: In addition to being a math major at the University of Rochester, I'm also studying the Double Bass at Eastman School of Music. If you or your student have any interest in music lessons for upright bass or bass guitar, I ...
Here's a bit about myself:
Since 2016, I've been teaching math to high school and elementary students. I've always loved it. With teaching, I feel that I've grown more patient and more thoughtful in my general life. I recommend that anyone with the means try their hand at teaching. It is a particularly rewarding thing in and of itself.
The summer of 2016, I wrote the music, conducted, and acted as musical director for a full-scale musical entitled Get Hooked: A Pirate Musical. Currently, I'm working on a second full-length project, entitled Nuclear Love, that is set to be produced and performed in the spring of 2020.
I also have experience doing rock and jazz gigs on my electric bass. If you or student is also interested in learning these styles, I'd be more than happy to oblige!
My favorite books are Zen and the Art of Motorc
ycle Maintenance, The Giver, Ishmael, 1984, The Chess Garden, Invisible Man, Labyrinths, and Life of Pi.
My favorite quote is "infinity and beyond." Granted, there is no such thing as 'beyond' - unless you're referring to the power set of infinity. Honestly, I just love infinity. I could talk about the infinite hotel and fractals forever (pun noted and kept).
I've been taking French classes for about 5 years now. If you're interested in having a charming conversation in slightly broken French, je suis ton mec!
There are a few things more inspiring to than helping a student triumphantly arrive at a solution. Or watching them nail a big shift that was giving them trouble the week before. Learning anything comes with struggle, with difficulty, and I've certainly had my share of practice frustration. It's important to understand that such an experience is part of the process. I have no doubt that with the right ethic, the right teacher, and a desire to learn, anything can be achieved.
