I joined a small group session with Johanna a few times and it was one of the most positive singing experiences of my life. Johanna is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and kind. As a novice singer, it was really awesome for me to learn more about how to use my breath and body as a tool to free my voice. Johanna is truly embodied in her work and her enthusiasm and passion are contagious. Whether you are a professional or a beginner, I can't recommend Johanna more highly.

Online Writing Teacher

Ever since I was a child, I absolutely loved to write. During my sessions as creative writing tutor, I hope to foster that same love for writing. My students are challenged to stay true to their own voice while simultaneously considering craft, style, syntax, structure, and the myriad elements of engaging, successful writing. My sessions can be catered to a specific goal (standardized testing), or can be an open-ended experience invaluable to academic success.

Donna is truly one of a kind person! I am so lucky to trust my instincts about Donna. She is absolutely an amazing person! I like to become a permanent student as I have been interested in many subjects Donna masters. Also, I must say that Donna is a gentle tutor and being. She is a true precious gem.
Dan
Wow! This lady was oozing knowledge galore! Not only she knows what she claims, but she quickly sees other marketing aspects of the cyberworld and shortcomings of the website! She is extremely talented lady who cares about what she does. She is worldly and helpful with invaluable suggestions to improve SEO qualities of the site!

Initially, I have committed to only one session. I have purchased 3 more sessions. Donna ROCKS!!!

"Mr Henry helped in improving my son's writing skills. He is a wonderful teacher. My son was struggling with writing. He used to be shy of writing and now he seems to be more confident in writing. Mr. Henry not only taught him different types of writing but also improved his vocabulary skills. I highly recommend him for learning/improving writing skills."

"When I first started writing my screenplay for a short story I'm directing and producing, I had a limited time to write, direct, edit and submit to a "once a year" film festival in Orlando Florida. I ran into a bunch of obstacles, from using the correct grammar, to punctuation's, spelling and inconsistencies in the story line. She was very clear and concise when she spoke. I don't know what she did but her method of teaching allowed me to relax and open my mind, and allowed me to absorb and remember every single writing technique she's given me. I am proud to say that my short film was finished in time to enter the festival. Thanks to Jonita it is now 3 months later and I have finished my fourth short screenplay, now starting my fifth. She is just amazing, I'm so happy I found her to work with me."
