About Jennifer
I have a Master's degree in music. My purpose as a teacher is to utilize all of my skills and education to realize my students' goals. I strive to inspire students towards musical excellence! I do this with much positive reinforcement, dialogue and critical analysis. With adults and advanced students, I include self-evaluation and discussion with the student so that they can become involved in their own development and musicianship.

*** Lesson Details ***
Tailoring each lesson to the individual needs of my students, I use a multi-faceted approach that includes memory, sight reading, ear-training and theory. This way students quickly build their repertoire and confidence on their instrument. Sing-a-longs train the musical ear, clapping reinforces rhythmic training, and new, exciting music strengthens reading skills. We often pla
y together, or have mini concerts to display the finished product of students' labor and encourage them towards new musical heights!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Yamaha Grand Piano, Acoustic/Electric Guitar, Classical Guitar

*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitar and my jeep

*** Specialties ***
When teaching piano, because I specialize in classical, I emphasize sight-reading, theory and performance from the very first lesson. As soon as possible, I have student memorize pieces appropriate to their level. I begin each lesson with memory work, move into sight-reading and analysis of the new work, or exercise. This way a student has a multi-faceted approach to music they are learning, and once they have learned it, they are continually adding to their repertoire. I work this way because many students are overwhelmed at the beginning of the learning stage. Examining the theory behind the composition helps them understand it, and approach it with less apprehension. Also, having pieces they can play from memory every week reminds them of the finished product of their labor and encourages them towards the new work.

Jennifer is great with my high-energy seven-year-old. She's very patient and she is able to make him engage. She also takes the skills he's learned in his music class in school, and builds his skills lessons around his abilities. Finally, she gives homework in a notebook that is clear and measurable, so he knows exactly what to do on his own throughout the week.

About Katy
I am a licensed Social worker with tutoring experience in and out of college. I have the most experience in tutoring Algebra and other math. I have a student now that I am helping with AP English who has dyslexia. I enjoy watching her grammar skills increase and her overall understanding of the concepts develop. I am great with any age individual and have the patience it takes to work with any kind of student (special needs included).

I believe that people learn the best when they understand the meaning and logic behind what they are learning. When a student can see a pattern develop they develop an understanding that can be universally applied to many different areas of study and life circumstances. Learning is different then memorizing. It is especially important to understand the concepts behind the subject matter when pla
nning continue in a similar learning subject.

I like to prepare for tutoring sessions by reviewing the subject matter in direct correlation to what you are struggling with. This ensures that when we meet we are ready to effectively and efficiently improve your knowledge and clarify any confusion.

About Jordan
Well Rounded.

That's how I believe every man and woman should become.

Most people put more time in one field and neglect everything else, when they should be efficient in multiple studies.
Being truly brilliant, is being truly knowledgeable overall.

In my life, I gained experience in many different fields and believed that it would be best to share them all with everybody else, and help each individual become someone knowledgeable in many different aspects of life too.
Because you never know, sooner or later, someone may ask for something that only you can help them with!

My son is quickly learning to read and play notes, beats and chords - which was broken down into basics and explained well. I think this will also improve his math understanding.

Jordan was very patient and personable with my son's lesson. It was his first time learning to play his beginner acoustic guitar. Jordan began with the basics, explaining frets, chords, how to pick and precisely tune listening to an online tuner.

The tuning homework exercise was just right for his introduction. He brought along his electric guitar and explained things for us in a way that was easy to understand and pick up. He is looking forward to his lessons.

About Yulia
I started teaching while was doing my Masters in economics, as Teaching Assistant for Intermediate Macroeconomics course. 3 years later I was an author and lecturer of Macroeconomics course for undergrads. I have a great experience of working not only with large auditory but also with small groups. All years of my teaching career I was giving private lessons in Economics for High school, Microeconomics and Macroeconomics for undergraduates so I have a huge library for problems, approaches for explanation and enough knowledge to bring the academic problem to the real world.

Yulia was my first economics teacher at school and I can best summarize my experience as her student in several words: she determined my future career path. I believe it’s her inspiration and curiosity about macroeconomics, her talent to communicate complicated econ world issues to students in an easy and fascinating manner that lead me to go to one of the best colleges in country to study economics IN ORDER TO TEACH economics thereafter...And continue my studies as a PhD student in the US doing research in macroeconomics (no surprise! Thanks Yulia!). I remember Yulia as a young and energetic woman, who is knowledgeable not only in economics but in art, literature and cooking. She is very open minded and does not stick to one particular paradigm - a kind of person you want your teacher to be nowadays. She teaches in a very structured way, is ready to help with all your questions and you really feel like you learned a lot. Bravo and thank you a lot.

About Cydney
I am a senior at Avila University studying math and finance. I plan on continuing my education and mastering in math with hopes to become a collegiate mathematics professor. I have been tutoring every level of math since 2014, giving me a wide variety of topics that I could help with. I truly have a passion for education, math, and helping others.

The students I teach can expect to be taught in teaching styles that relate directly to them. My goals with each student is to make sure there is a basic knowledge that is necessary for every level of math, but more importantly, the ability to problem solve analytically and be able to apply that to any of their course work (including tests).

I am a student athlete, so I understand what it's like to be very busy and on the go and to feel like you're drowning in homework that you just don't
understand. That is why I am willing to be very flexible to schedules and to come prepared and ready to help. Whether that 30 minutes or 3 hours.
