About Linda L.

Close
Tucker, GA

View Full Profile

I excel in language arts, including grammar, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and writing - including essay writing, poetry and song lyrics. I also teach diction (pronunciation) and reading aloud/oral expression.
I am fluent in Hebrew, and studied Spanish for 3 years in high school. My background in these foreign languages helps me understand how to teach English to non-English speakers, as well as to native English-speakers.
As a tutor, I am patient, intuitive, friendly, and positive. :-)

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 also play and teach old-timey frailing/clawhammer style.
Ukulele: I play and teach all styles of ukulele.
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!

I taught English for 5 years. My students were Chinese-American kids and Chinese new adult immigrants. Besides the textbook, worksheet,I also used English cartoon movies, English songs. role play, English salon activities, English practical conversation to help my students with their English study.

About Sandy
Having taught Chinese Language Skills in the private sector, primary, secondary and college institutions for a number of years in China, has not only given me great confidence to teach in a classroom setting, but has inherently brought an instructor comfort that feels natural to me.
In addition, finding an opportunity where I can assist the kids, middle school and high school students and adults who love to learn Chinese college staff while maintaining my teaching proficiency in traditional or simplified Chinese characters is both welcome and rewarding to me.

I'm certain that my rich knowledge and years of experience in classroom practical application of Chinese Curriculum / Culture coupled with my love to teach make me a professional, responsible and patient teacher.

In addition, I can teach you Chinese in your location which
is no more than 10 miles away from Vista where I live. I can also teach you how to play badminton and cook delicious authentic Chinese food.

Ms. Qi is a very accessible and diligent teacher. My son can be difficult, but she found ways to quickly connect with him and get him to open up. She accommodated his need for assistance with his regular work, but encouraged us to "start again" with Chinese which is probably a good idea. Very much appreciate her experience and enthusiasm.

About Anne-Marie B.

East Stroudsburg, PA
View Full Profile

I have a Master's degree from NYU's School of Education and I have taught for many years. English has always been and remains my favorite subject, first as a student and now as a teacher. I have helped many people improve their reading, writing, spelling, grammar and pronunciation of the English language. My students range from elementary school kids to adults, and often are ESL students. I believe everyone should be able to read and comprehend the language, and benefit from all the beautiful literature out there. I also believe that everyone should be able to communicate effectively, whether in writing or through the spoken word, and I enjoy being part of their process.

About Anne-Marie
Hi, I'm Anne-Marie and I love to teach! I have been teaching for over 25 years and whether the subject is English, Music, College Prep or Italian, I love helping students reach their goals. I work hard to leave my students enlightened, encouraged and empowered. I have high standards and I really like to challenge students to achieve their full potential, but I also try to make the process interesting, engaging and fun. I'm patient, easygoing and I enjoy working with students of all ages and backgrounds. I always strive to get to know my students (and their needs) very well. Then I customize lessons according to need, aptitude and goals. One of the best parts of teaching for me is meeting and connecting with new people, and making a difference in their lives, so I really look forward to meeting and working with you!

Amanda is excellent and the instruction has been very enjoyable. She adapted to my learning style and found a way to teach that was suitable for me, based on my personal experience and background. She is also flexible, both in terms of time and subject matter so you can be sure to focus on exactly what you need at the moment. Although my schedule in New York was busy, I was looking forward to the lesson each day because it’s interesting and she is very well prepared. She is also a very nice person and I think the lessons are great for every English language learner.

Hi! If you are interested in learning English from a native speaker with an American accent, look no further!

I have experience teaching both individuals and groups of many age levels.

Whether you are starting at a basic or advanced level, I am ready to assist you in achieving your language goals. Let's go!

About Genevieve
I am a pediatric physical therapist and in my free time I love to explore language, culture, and art.

I graduated from Georgetown University with a BA in English literature and a minor in Spanish and Sociology prior to continuing my studies at UT Medical Branch where I received a doctorate in physical therapy.

During my undergraduate education, I studied abroad in Argentina and there my love of languages took off. Since then, I have studied Spanish and Portuguese and consider myself proficient in both.

I have spent time living abroad over the past decade in South America, Europe, and Asia and it was there that I began to teach English. Sharing the gift of language is not just fulfilling for me, but it is also fun.

I am also a dance teacher for children and adults and love the evolution that I witness in both my language and dance
students as they progress toward their goals.
