About Jennifer
I am a professional singer-songwriter and have been teaching lessons fulltime for the last 12 years. I teach students of all ages and levels of experience. My current range of students include: kids with learning/developmental disabilities, teenagers who have starred in school musicals, and performing adult singer-songwriters. Whatever your background or desire, I can help you to cultivate your unique musical potential, and to strengthen your creative voice.

As a professional vocalist and pianist, I have worked freelance, in a variety of settings, over the years--including solo, in wedding bands, small jazz and rock/pop groups and with big bands. I have been singing with the Mood Swings Big Band for 6+ years. During that time, we have performed at the White House, the Chamber of Commerce and in Kennebunkport, Maine (at the Bush e
state).

I also have an extensive professional and personal background in meditation (10 years), astrology (5 years) and healing (particularly Reiki, 4 years). I am very interested in the intersection between a healing/mindfulness-awareness approach and singing/playing piano.

Jennifer is an awesome piano teacher! She works great with children! My 6 year old is very engaged, interested and ready to learn! She leaves each week saying how she cannot wait for her next lesson and she practices a lot at home. I believe this comes from Jennifer's excellence in teaching! I would highly recommend her!

About Daniel
I love teaching, I can teach you at where you at and take you where you need to be. I only need a student with the desire to learn and to practice.

I like to help students realize they have the intelligence and ability to solve the problems on their own, they just need the right direction. Nothing is too difficult once we understand how to do it!

Daniel is very knowledgeable, patient and flexible in his learning approach. He works with the student to align on an approach that will work for them. I've had 4 lessons and gained more in that short period of time than with previous instructors.

About Matthew
Hello, there! My name is Matthew! I've been teaching private lessons since 2014 and have loved helping my students learn the knitting/crocheting basics, expand their understanding of their abilities, and find a proactive way to relieve stress and bad moods. I teach knitting English or Continental style, multiple cast on methods and when to use them, different increase and decrease methods achieving different looks depending on the pattern and desired outcome, and finally different bind off methods.

I knit and crochet for a high fashion handcrafted company (The Third Piece), I have an Etsy shop, and am commissioned to crochet for international competitions. I'm a kind and outgoing person and my teaching style is relaxed yet focused, goal oriented, and fun! Knitting and crocheting are wonderful ways to express yourself, relieve stress,
and to make gifts for multiple occasions. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

About Cara
My experience tutoring ASL students began in 1994 when, ironically, I was one myself. As a Freshman at the University of Rochester, New York, I took an ASL class and fell in love with the language and culture. Consequently, I designed my own double major: ASL/Linguistics. The next four years were spent in immersion. The Deaf culture in Rochester provided me with an “abroad” opportunity without leaving the country. Once fluent I began tutoring college students, interpreting at the neighboring college (NTID) and often, was mistaken for one of the Deaf students. Post undergrad, I earned a Masters Degree in Deaf Education at Boston University so I could begin making our complicated language of reading and writing English accessible to young Deaf children. Over the course of my career I have taught ASL to all ages and levels of hearing student
s and English Literacy to all ages and levels of Deaf students. A love for children has recently led me to teach Baby/Toddler Sign classes using ASL.
