About Itai
I graduated from SUNY Purchase with a BA in Studio Composition in 2007, and from Hebrew College with a Masters' Degree in Jewish Education in June, 2016. I have been working in after-school, Hebrew school, camp, and other supplementary educational settings for the past ten years. Most of my students are learning piano, and I also have a few Hebrew students. My Hebrew students are either studying for their bnei mitzvah, maintaining their conversational Hebrew, or learning for the purpose of competence of services or Torah study. My piano students have ranged from age 4 to young children learnin
g Classical pieces to teens learning to play the songs they like to adults working on their songwriting and improvisation. My strengths are improvisation, music theory and ear training, accompaniment of popular songs - rock, theater, pop, folk, etc.

Please feel free to get in touch and ask questions!

The review posted on my profile was from when I used my English name, Ricky.

My first lesson was everything I hoped for from start to finish. I haven't played piano for many years & wanted to begin by using a keyboard as a learning tool--to recapture dexterity and reading ability. I emerged with a better grasp of basics & even a little music theory--exactly as I had requested. Itai is a wonderfully patient teacher & I am looking forward to next week.

Ricky is an amazingly creative and inspiring teacher.

Ricky has been teaching my daughter for last 5 years. My daughter is now 15 years old. She already played piano for a couple of years before Ricky started working with her and at that time was getting disinterested. We were looking for someone who would bring that interest and spark back into her playing piano. I was looking for a special teacher who can teach basics of improvisation and accompaniment to a young child. After talking with several potential teachers, we decided to work with Ricky.

Ricky has proven to be an amazing teacher for my daughter. He is patient, creative and able to adjust to the child’s needs. I was amazed when couple of months after my daughter started working with him; she was already improvising and playing really cool pieces of music. That kind of teaching has inspired my daughter to continue playing piano for the last 5 years. She has accompanied two of her friends singing at her school talent shows and graduation ceremony with encouragement and inspiration Ricky has provided her all along.

Ricky frequently encourages my daughter to pick her own songs she would like to work on. Ricky has a strong knowledge of music theory and has incorporated that in his lessons. I love that my daughter is learning music theory, improvisation, accompaniment and reading music all with the same teacher. It is not easy to find a teacher who is so creative to include all of these in his teaching method. I would highly recommend Ricky as a piano teacher for any age.

Bryan has been great to work with. He has a lot of patience, which is important for someone like me who has a very limited musical background. He is clearly well educated in singing and is able to impart his knowledge to his students. I believe that anyone who takes lessons with him has the potential to greatly improve.

About Grace
An experienced, patient, sweet and funny Chinese tutor to all levels and ages, I have been teaching and tutoring Chinese language over 10 years. I am originally from China, a native Mandarin Chinese speaker with a master degree.
I studied in a law school, got my master degree and lawyer license, also passed the Mandarin Proficiency Test, achieved the College Teacher Certificate and worked in a college to teach law and culture related subjects when I was in China.
After came to America, I had taught in a university, and a language workshop for children. At present, I teach Chinese in a summ
er camp of a very good private school. So you see, my students are from toddlers to adults. One parent praised me that I am a great story teller.
I can help students from primary to college improve their listening, speaking, reading, and writing ability, and achieve a high score in their final Chinese test.
I can help students prepare for the AP Chinese Language and Culture Exam.
I can help worked people have a good understanding of this language.
I can tailor customized lessons to satisfy students’ specific requirements and levels, such as conversational Chinese, retail field Chinese, systematically beginner’s Chinese, etc…
I can teach people Business Chinese as well since I had the law background knowledge from China.
What book series I use the most is to teach high school, college students, and adults Integrated Chinese series.
What I like the most is to teach children because my personality is very active, and I like kids. I like to sing and dance (maybe it shouldn't be called dance, it is just like moving around). I can sing lots of Chinese nursery rhymes.
A committed professional to my work with a sincere, enthusiastic, easygoing, down to earth personality, I like teaching, that students improve day by day is my biggest happiness. You will have a happy time to learn Chinese very well if choosing me as your tutor.

Grace is fantastic. She speaks very clearly and works with you on each lesson at a very manageable pace. She is good at praising when you get things like pronunciation or tones correct, which is really helpful because they are difficult. She is also not afraid to stop you and have you repeat something if you botch it. I really enjoy my lessons.

I only had 1 lesson with Grace and I gave it 2 stars because I think it could have been better (she could have placed more effort into creating an actual lesson plan). I'm an ABC and grew up speaking Mandarin at home, but was looking to learn to read and recognize characters. We spoke Chinese the entire lesson and just reviewed the Integrated Chinese Vol 1 Part 2 textbook glossary from A-C. We just went over each word, which I did not find useful because I can just do with my Chinese friends or parents. Her only homework to me was that if this was too slow, I could read through the rest of the glossary to speed it up next time. I decided not to continue because I was afraid the next lessons would just be going through the glossary word by word. We lost 10 minutes because the TakeLessons video conferencing wasn't working, despite the fact that both of us had checked beforehand and during on the test environment (she could hear/see me, but I couldn't see/hear her). Even then, we went over five minutes to make up for it but it was frustrating to have a shortened lesson because of technical difficulties. Grace was nice, but I just didn't learn anything.

I've been working with Timothy for 4 years working on accent reduction, Shakespeare acting, and cold reading. My experience with our sessions has helped me to focus on what was more important to work on and having Timothy honest and respectable approach will keep you satisfied to continue to work together.

Tim is an inspiring and (in the right way) challenging teacher, who drives his students to accomplish more than they thought possible by means of precise instruction and judicious criticism. There is no doubt: Tim gets results.

I took Voice and Speech classes with Timothy and I am really thankful for everything!! I had a really thick European accent, which I thought I would never be able to get rid of. He worked with me every day, very patiently, until I was able to speak confidently and as if I was born in America. There's no better feeling than hearing people say "You sound as if you were born here". Not only did he help me with my speech, as well as acting!! (genious of Shakespeare's interpretation!!) but through our work, he got to know me better and helped me become a better person and encouraged me in many things in life.

Hola! I'm really happy you have decided to start learning Spanish, or maybe you want to improve your conversation skills, whatever your motivations are I am here to help.

I am a native speaker, from Spain, so you would get the full cultural experience of España!

I actually love to teach my language while showing you small cultural aspects of my country, like music, films, art or history.

A language is no just an independent communication tool. It is connected to a way of seeing the world, to a specific culture and I want you to learn that too.

Hope to talk to you soon!!!!
