About Linda
*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not typically provide any equipment - but I am willing to select and purchase books for the students to learn from (cost of books to be reimbursed by the student/parent) when requested to do so.

I am also willing to provide stick-on note-names for the keyboard, for young children.

The students must have their own instruments, and provide a folder for sheet music and notes/instructions.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar, I specialize in the following styles: jazz, rock, blues, folk, bluegrass, and children's songs.
Piano: I prefer electronic keyboard to acoustic piano, but am happy to teach beginning students on a regular piano as well. I teach note-reading, playing by ear, and theory, with en emphasis on rock, pop, and folk music. I include arranging, chord theory, and use of the many features of an elec
tronic keyboard, in the lessons.
Bass Guitar: I teach rock, pop, funk, and country music on bass.
Banjo: I teach bluegrass, country, and some blues and rock music. I can also teach a bit of old-timey frailing/clawhammer style.
English and Reading: I am highly qualified, to tutor/teach English (spoken, written, and reading comprehension) to both native English speakers and to those learning it as a second language.
*** I am particularly good at working with children who have a.d.h.d. and other learning disabilities!

Linda is easily the most patient and welcoming person I've ever worked with. She has incredible knowledge over a vast array of topics and she is eager to share with others. This, in my opinion, is the most important quality of all teachers. Her lessons have proved a great way to build a solid base in my field of interest. as well as providing me with a well rounded and wonderful mentor that I'm sure to rely on for many other lessons in the future- banjo or otherwise!

Alexandra did a terrific job in preparing me to get around Romania. I travel there for work and she was excellent in helping me learn key phrases and sentence structure for someone visiting and getting around that country.

Alexandra is dope teacher! I wanted to start learning phrases and speaking basics, and have conversations for when I visit romania. She is generous with her time, excellent English to romanian communication/knowledge and she is charming.

So it's been a pleasure!

About Craig
Hello, my name is Craig. I am a highly experienced instructor with over seven years of teaching students from a variety of cultural backgrounds and learning styles and age ranges. One of the main things I take the most joy doing is having the opportunities to help any student strive for his or her best, while making learning interactive, challenging, and fun. My specialty is teaching English, and reading/writing, however, I also like to infuse many other facets of topics/subjects during a class session.

I am excited for the opportunity to be your instructor and look forward to assisting you to become the very best you can be.
