About Brenda
Hello, my name is Brenda! It is nice to meet you.

I have been teaching private lessons for over a decade, and have my B.M. in Music Education from William Paterson University. I was a voice major and flute/piano double minor, and I just completed my Masters of Music in Performance with the Opera Institute at Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University.

Although I do work with students of all ages, I specialize in working with younger children and retired adults!

I primarily teach voice, flute, piano, music theory and history and have over 10 years of experience teaching in both individual and group settings. I also work on audition and performance preparation, do speech/accent work and more. I am constantly studying different teaching methods so I can develop a custom program that best fits your learning styles and inco
rporates what you already know, with what you will need to learn in order to achieve your goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether you want to play flute, clarinet, sing, act, or learn to play piano, I am here to help you become the best musician you can be. Classically trained, I also work with the styles of musical theatre, pop, rock, and jazz. I can teach you the proper techniques, posture, and breathing necessary to perform to the best of your ability and teach you how to utilize your full lung capacity to extend phrasing length and dynamic range. I will also help you learn to read and write music. Together, we will keep a log to track your progress lesson to lesson. This will also help you keep a record of the steps you are taking to obtain and achieve your goals and dreams.

*** Specialties ***
Young and beginner students.
Senior & Retired students
Students with special needs.
Performance techniques.
Audition preparation
Speech techniques (public speaking/voice-overs, etc.)
Bel Canto technique.
Performance anxiety
Life coaching!

"I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for in the patterns of music and all the arts are the keys of learning" ~Plato

**if you need a particular time slot or one not listed on my availability I will do my best to accommodate your needs**

**All lessons will be scheduled in advance with confirmation of both the student and instructor.

I have taught ESL or English Second Language to all ages from toddlers to older adults. Classrooms full of teenagers. I really enjoy it and teach in a way that other teachers would never dream of. My approach is casual and pleasurable.

About Bryce
The best non native Spanish tutor/teacher -

I am a Spanish Language Consultant

I am a concierge tutor meaning that I make every meeting personalized for you. Everyone learns a language differently. For some they just want to speak. For others they want to learn to read or write. And some want to do it all. Either way I will do everything in my power to assure that happens.

Where did I learn Spanish?
I took it in high school like all of us and failed out in the second year. Then seven years later I took a class in Bellevue College and got the best grade in the class. Soon after the class finished I moved to Bogotá, Colombia for a year and half where I really improved my level to near native status. When I was a kid in high school I did not see how cool it is to be able to speak another language nor did I care. However, now it w
as a defining point in my life and something that no one can take away from me.

Because I am more expensive I have fewer clients which gives me more time to focus on you the student. My schedule is also very flexible giving you plenty of freedom over when to meet.

I am connected to a network of native speakers who are all my very close friends who can be included in the sessions when the time is right or whenever you may like.

I have been a Spanish Consultant since 2011 and love doing it. I really get fired up when students begin to take off on their own with the language with less and less of my help.

I don't think you will find a more passionate tutor in the area. The passion comes through in the lessons.

Students who will succeed with me can be of any age but should have these traits if they wish to excel:
Discipline
Not afraid to make mistakes
Positive attitudes
Open mind
Willingness to think outside of the box

Chryssa has been an amazing teacher so far! She really knows how to teach a difficult language without overwhelming a beginner learner but while still moving at a pace that is comfortable and productive. Chryssa is patient and good at identifying what is difficult for you. I would recommend Chryssa to anyone wanting to learn Greek.

Get the results you want with individualized ESL Classes! For your first class, we will have a consultation about your goals, strengths, weaknesses, and any education or experience you have with English. From then on, I tailor each and every lesson to fit your needs- this could be speaking, listening, grammar, phrasal verbs, culture, etc. I incorporate various forms of media into my lessons including articles, video, and worksheets. I send follow up emails after class that detail the mistake patterns I noticed and how to fix them. Ask me a question to find out more!

About Elisha
First of all, congratulations on having the courage and self-discipline to do what most others do not: learn a new language. The hard part is over! You've already begun the learning process and now all you need is someone to give you the guidance, support, and tools to help you along the way.

I hold my students to high standards, believing that setting consistent and high expectations is the key to success and improvement. I encourage students to reach these standards by providing honest feedback about their strengths and weaknesses, actively listening, and individualizing every lesson. Though I set high standards for students, I expect and even encourage them to make mistakes. Making mistakes is the best way to begin getting better and lets me know what areas we should work on together.

I have an eclectic and experiential approach to teaching. I use a textbook or any resources as a starting point and reference. Conversation is the most important practice and I always have very interesting conversations with students. I provide English lessons that are experiential, integrative, holistic, and dynamic. Field trips can be arranged. My aim is to provide lessons that are interesting, fun, and effective.

About Rebecca
Welcome to a new world with the English language! Learning a new language is one of the most exciting things you can do for yourself, as it has so many benefits. It opens you up to a whole new world full of different experiences, opportunities and friendships! I am a huge proponent of learning a second language. I love teaching English because I love working with internationals. Let me tell you a little about myself.

I have lived and worked in China, and taught many students of all ages, both in this country and abroad. I am TEFL certified and have a master's degree in psychology. I can tailor your language learning to whatever your goals may be- whether it is for work, school, or social needs. I have an eclectic and experiential approach to teaching. My aim is to provide lessons that are fun and effective. I have endless patience for
language learning. I have a sharp ear and am concerned with pronunciation.

Please contact me with any questions about location for your lessons, as I cannot tailor my profile here the way I would like. I teach in-home lessons on the Eastside of Seattle. Students outside of this area, I generally meet at a library closer to me. I do have availability in Seattle (limited), where I meet students at Beacon Hill Branch Library.

I look forward to working with you!

Sincerely, Rebecca

Rebecca is a very good tutor. She is a very communicative and friendly person. Her lessons productive and interesting. She was always ready to support a conversion and stayed calm about my mistakes :) We practiced new words, expressions and idioms, she helped me to correct my pronunciation and grammar. After our classes I became more confident about my English, especially speaking skills. She makes student very comfortable during the class. However, I highly recommend her as an English tutor!

Want to discuss the meanings behind your favorite song lyrics? Or what about recent movie trailers? My lessons will be on topics you're interested in so you won't even notice we're learning grammar and phonetics! I will help you create a solid foundation in English or build on your already existing base through conversation, reading, games and much more

About Morgan
I am a TEFL certified native speaker from the USA. I have also lived in England for three years and am proficient in all areas of the English language. I have experience teaching both conversation and grammar to all levels of students. After my TEFL course, I had the opportunity to work in a private elementary school in the Czech Republic. Additionally, I taught private 1-on-1, conversation based lessons to adults.
I am also a competitive Archer and I have been learning Korean from my aunt for the past two years, so I understand the difficulties of learning a new language (especially one with a different alphabet)!
