Joy S.

Lansdowne, PA

About Joy

I am a graduate of UC San Diego (bachelor of arts, sociology) and UCLA (master of public policy). As a child of immigrant parents, I value diversity and love learning languages. I read, write and speak Spanish fluently, and have intermediate command of both Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese in reading, writing, and speech.

Photography has been one of my main areas of focus for over ten years. I am trained in both film and digital formats and specialize in demystifying the DSLR so that you gain a good understanding of manual settings and how to use each to improve your photos.

Caring, compas
sion, and understanding are essential for learning and I strive to do my best in these areas.

Kevin F.

Philadelphia, PA

About Kevin

I have been a teacher for several years in subjects ranging from Music to English. My most recent experience has been with ESL students, which I find to be most fulfilling. I earned a 94th percentile GRE Verbal score and have coached several students in test prep and general writing. As a trained singer, dialects and accents are areas with which I have extensive experience. The mechanics of phonation and speech have been a theme throughout my career and I have developed an acute sensitivity to the intricacies of diction in various languages.

I hope I can be of service to you!

On a p
ersonal note, I enjoy long-distance bike rides, classical music (2,500 vinyl LPs in the collection), personal essay writing, movies, and cooking. I love learning and spend almost all of my free time learning about something.

My son really liked Michelle! He was all smiles after the lesion, excited about the homework, and eager to show us what he was working on. He was very very impressed, as was I, with her extensive musical background. Having the lesson in our home is a huge help in our family. Looking forward to the next session!
