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.

I'm an intermediate player who needed refinement and refresher of my core techniques. I went to Elizabeth because she has a background in both fiddle & classical. After watching me play, she affirmed that which I was doing correctly and then helped me to improve where I was lacking. I would recommend Elizabeth.

Award-winning, professional author, specializing in novels, short stories, and personal essays. The ugly truth about writing is that it's hard work. No one starts out as a great writer. Sure, raw talent is helpful, but it only gets you so far. The good news is that writing is a craft that can be learned; the even better news is that an experienced teacher can save you an enormous amount of time and frustration on the road to mastering the craft. I tailor my lessons to fit your individual strengths and weaknesses as a writer; I always try to give you concrete, detailed advice, along with useful exercises to help you become the writer you want to be. Send me a note if you're interested, and we can see if we're a good match.

Online Writing Teacher

Is your child is struggling to grasp key concepts in his or her language arts class? Are you a student working on a large-scale term paper, or preparing for the SAT or AP exams? Or a high schooler looking to build the best college acceptance essay possible? Whatever your or your child's age or grade level, I will provide the instruction needed to accomplish your or your child's academic goals. I make writing fun and productive by setting challenging yet realistic goals and providing engaging lesson plans that will drive the student to be attentive and engaged. My lessons go beyond simply explaining the rules of grammar and sentence structure, but truly teaching each student how to proactively apply the concepts of language arts to daily life to fully absorb the subject matter and create a foundation to build upon in the years to come. My goal is to unlock each student's unique writer's voice and give him or her the confidence and technique to tackle any writing assignment, from ...

She came prepared and was accommodating. Lilia showed patience with my son with autism, which I appreciated and was relieved to see. She also has great pedagogical knowledge of how to instruct a child in piano.

She does "unclean" vocals in her band, Karkaza but is super knowledgeable on regular singing. After only a couple months, I'm beginning to see some progress despite my years singing improperly.

Online Writing Teacher

If you or your child is struggling in writing, it can be a daunting task to write an essay or story to communicate a point, or to write a persuasive speech that wins audiences over. If you can write, you can go anywhere in life! Much of our schools are struggling with core writing standards. This requires much outside tutoring. If you or someone you know is struggling in writing, I can help with topics, essays, grammar, subject verb and sentence agreements, punctuation, vocabulary, spelling, and much more! I can also tutor in MLA format for research papers. I'm available in person and online.

About Cody

With my two Bachelor's degrees in Music Composition and Technology, I began tutoring students in piano, voice, and composition as it was part of my training. I also have experience writing and editing essays, books, and more for several independent clients. I have experience writing my own books as
