I provide classical instruction in portraiture, still life and landscape in your studio or mine. In this traditional approach to drawing and painting, what will be taught and focused upon are perspective, value and composition in order for the student to develop strong visual language skills. The program of study begins with a specific focus on drawing, since drawing is the foundation upon which all great traditional art is built. Throughout this training, emphasis will be placed on accuracy, or more specifically, seeing and rendering correctly such things as line quality, hard and soft edges, proportion, positive and negative space through abstract form and the use of the full range of values.

The classics and emergent literature of the North American continent and American expatriates writing in different countries represent an indispensable conduit and upgrade to any of the subjects from the current teacher’s profile. This literature is exemplary for its offbeat, innovative writers, as the Beats, and global avant-gardists as the New York School of poetry. Nevertheless, students will find the gamut of moral, social, and existential themes that distinguish any classic literary cultural expression. Students can use recommended literary readings to deepen and broaden the quality of learning for such current topics, as accent training, writing skills, ESL, and TOEFL/IELTS. Vocabulary lists can be extracted and developed from the literature for attainment of higher test scores and to further minimize/moderate accent-related speech concerns. Emotional expressions and cultural insights intensify the immersion students require to adequately reflect common English parlance. ...

Erol has a very systematic approach in teaching accent reduction. Since taking lessons with Erol, I've started to become more aware of my speech and noticed an improvement in my pronunciation. Highly recommended!
June
Erol utilizes an audio software to analyze and determine what needs to be worked. This eliminates a lot of human hearing errors and gives me a visual on what’s correct vs incorrect. Highly recommended for you to try his method out.
Rhonda H.
I enjoyed the lesson very much, he started out teaching things that made sense so that I would learn faster than the lessons I have previously taken and not done well with.
I'm looking forward to the next lesson and am practicing what we went over in class.

I've taught voice to children, teens, and adults in the US and abroad since 2006. My Masters degree training has afforded me the opportunity to be well versed in effective vocal techniques. My main goal is to help you to develop your own set of tools, and better understand your unique voice. Make sure to wear clothing you can move in during our sessions, and, most importantly, explore and just have fun!

My background and career have never placed importance on speaking and looking objectively at myself, I wanted to improve that ability. Toya has been very patient and down to earth with me, as raw as I am, in helping me. After a few lessons I already feel confidence growing and enjoy her instruction.

Fun, Encouraging and Helpful!

Brianna was fantastic with my fourteen year old! She helped build up confidence, was very encouraging and made lessons fun. She uses a variety of techniques to teach singing skills including speech-level singing by Seth Riggs. I highly recommend her for beginners as well as for people looking to record a demo.
Allison M.
Supportive, fun, and SO knowledgeable

I started taking singing lessons because I wanted to pick up another hobby, and Briana has helped me do just that. She is incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and supportive regardless of what your goals are. She makes the technical side of signing fun and enjoyable, something other teachers I have worked with have been unsuccessful at. Briana provides a positive and warm space to let loose in, and most importantly has reminded me that I don't always have to take myself so seriously. I highly recommend Briana to anyone who is looking for a teacher they can create a connection with, regardless of skill level because she can handle it all!
Melanie A.
Talented, understanding and fun!

I just wanted to take singing lessons for fun and to build up my confidence singing around others. Briana has taken my needs into account and has done a great job putting together lessons that fit my needs. She offers a very relaxed, soothing atmosphere that gives me the comfort that I need to be able to work on my goals. She is very talented as well, which helps me feel confident in her abilities to teach me what I'm looking to learn. Overall, she is a great singing coach and I would recommend her to anyone! :o)

"Becky has been tutoring my daughter for about a year and half for ACT prep (Reading, English, Science and Essay), college app essays, general essays and papers for school assignments and now scholarship essays. She has been extremely supportive to my daughter throughout the college application process in many ways. With her knowledge and expertise, her flexibility with meeting times and location (either at Breakaway Prep or FaceTime/Skype), following up with my daughter, her communication with me on progress being made and the well being of my daughter, the wonderful relationship she has with my daughter and her overall kindness has made our tutoring experience a superior one. My daughter absolutely loves her. I think she truly respects her because she balances encouragement, teaching the information so that my daughter can absorb the content, asks that my daughter work before they get together to make the most of their time, and ju"

Really, the only thing that matters is that Grant is educated, patient and (perhaps most of all) comfortable. I trust him and his analysis. I trust his advice. He's a great mentor and somebody you can count on."

"Marwan is amazing!
He impressed me already the first minutes of the first lesson he gave my son in AP Calculus BC by asking specific questions and pin pointing where my son might need help. After that he has come prepared and focused with materials for each tutoring session.
Marwan's piano credentials speak for themselves but I want to underscore that he is really good at adjusting to the student's level and making it fun. My daughter always tells me afterwards *it is so much fun with Marwan!*.

On top of all that, Marwan is a good, kind person and a really cool guy. You could not be in better hands."
