It is my grasp of foreign languages that makes me an effective English teacher. For instance, learning the complex grammar of Latin and Greek gave me a thorough understanding of English grammar and the ability to relate to other people’s native languages. I have spent many hours proofreading papers for international students. They find my instruction especially informative because I not only fix mistakes but provide an explanation. When I point out the patterns of grammar, similar mistakes show up less and less, and my students feel more confident that they are writing sentences correctly.

I learned English teaching methods through my tutoring experience. Over a span of four months, I gave a Turkish visiting scholar a systematic overview of English grammar and allowed him to apply it through conversation.

About Ben
Music Lessons & Tutoring

Welcome to my studio, where I will instruct you in your musical and academic endeavors. What sets me apart is that I offer diverse instruction in two different areas. In my music studio, I give lessons in piano, violin, guitar, and composition. In my tutoring center, I specialize in Latin (learning from scratch and tutoring). I instruct students of all ages at different skill levels.

My in-studio lessons are given on a grand piano.

Education

BM Music Composition -- Ohio State University, Autumn 2012
BA Classics (Greek and Latin) -- Ohio State University, Autumn 2012
Classics Fellowship -- Indiana University, 2013-2014
Piano Training: Collegiate lessons from Steven Glaser and private lessons from George Haddad

Accomplishments

As a high school senior, under the tutelage of OSU Profess
or Emeritus and world-renowned pianist George Haddad, I performed the first movement of Shostakovich's Second Piano Concerto with the chamber orchestra.

I performed different self-composed pieces at seven OSU Composers' Workshops and won the Audience Favorite Award at the Johnstone Woodwinds Composition Competition in 2012. My Senior Composition Recital was performed on October 25, 2012. It showcased several of my three-movement works: string quartet, clarinet solo, set of classical songs for piano and voice, set of pop songs for piano and voice. Interspersed with these were two solo piano pieces and a duet for piano and violin.

My background makes me a knowledgeable and effective tutor. I was valedictorian at Delaware Hayes High School in 2009 and received OSU's Maximus Scholarship based on my ACT and SAT scores.

Ben was patient, kind and full of knowledge. He was great at noticing her hand placement and would make visual corrections as well as show her examples of where she should be. For our first online lesson, I was very impressed. We still need to learn more about the technical aspects of being online (example: where to move the output video placement) but I think that just adds to the fun and experience of the whole process.

I am CELTA-certified through Cambridge University. This is the premier, international certification for any ESL instructor. I am a dynamic, creative instructor who will adapt my lessons to meet your interests and needs. A typical lesson includes practice of both receptive and productive skills; I usually like to start with a speaking warm-up, then move on to vocabulary, grammar, reading comprehension, listening comprehension, or a combination of several of these. I assign mostly reading and writing comprehension exercises as homework. I always demonstrate what I want the student to do, and ask plenty of instruction and comprehension checking questions (ICQs & CCQs). I am well-versed in standard English pronunciation, and can help with accent reduction and academic presentations. I use the Cambridge method of teaching vocabulary: we review all aspects of words, including their meaning, form, and pronunciation. Contact me today!

About Bethany
Hello! I'm Bethany, and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012, and have loved helping my students improve their English proficiency, master the French language, and raise their test scores. I have my teaching licensed for K-12 French w/ an ESL Endorsement. I went to Muhlenberg College and earned a degree in French in 2011. I've also taken some graduate courses in teaching, and I recently earned my Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) from Cambridge! I'm a positive and adventurous person. My teaching style is creative, patient, and dynamic. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I have all of my security clearances: Child Abuse History Clearance, FBI Fingerprint, PA Criminal Background Check, you name it, so no worries! :-)

Melody was an incredibly kind and patient teacher. There were multiple times when I couldn't understand the material right away, but she would work with me until I was comfortable with it. She was really understanding with my struggles in math. I would highly recommend her as an instructor.

· Harp · In studio
Melody is as lovely as she is talented. Not only does she understand the harp inside and out, but her playing is like nothing I've ever heard. While she can of course play classic tunes, she is also innovative with the harp, tackling some of today's most popular hits. Most importantly, however, Melody is patient. While the harp is her first passion and she is well beyond her years, she is not only willing, but eager to share her talent with others. It has been a pleasure learning from someone who has in time become a friend. I would recommend Melody to any and everyone with the slightest passion for harp. While it is a joy learning from her, the greatest treat is hearing her play. Thanks for everything Mels!

She was extremely helpful and patient despite my very poor knowledge with the language. Would recommend as a instructor for any subject, not just my weakest one. Occasionally asked problems not regarding Chinese and still got very helpful advice.

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
