About Ilona M.

I teach vocabulary, sentence structure, and pronunciation. I teach conversation and use everyday examples.

About Ilona
I am experienced (3 years) in home school tutoring. I mostly work with Florida Virtual School students. I overlook their tests and assignments, and help them with preparations for Discussion Based Assessmemts (DBA). I also help parents with required annual evaluations and how to sign up with home education department.
For my tutoring sessions I use skills that include goal-directedness, I teach how to organize learning in small steps and how to set them up; I always strive to motivate and engage my students to make them interested in learning and have fun; I also use self-control skills to t
each how to avoid distractions and I show how to use different focusing strategies. I use positive mind set skills to teach how to use failures as learning opportunities.

I have Masters in Education (2018) with specialization in English, Curriculum and Education; and Masters in Arts (2012) in Teaching English to speakers of other languages, and Bachelors in Music Education (2010), both from Florida Atlantic University, as well as a degree in violin performance from Chicago.
I studied piano in Chicago for 10 years & taught both piano & violin for over 20 years. I also teach flute & cello for the past 5 years, as I studied them during my Music Education program.
I have taught music for over 24 years using the traditional and Suzuki methods. I am fan of the Essential Elements method and I Can Read Music book for string instruments, and the Alfred's Piano Library for piano. Alfred's piano library can be used for any age as they also have books especially made for adult learners. I also like their music flash cards.
For teaching music theory I mostly used Fundamentals of Piano Theory (9 levels) combined with Master Theory (6 levels) books.

I personalize every lesson, and always set goals for my students. Most of my violin students are members of the Florida Youth Orchestra as well as the Gold Coast Youth Orchestra and my piano students participate in Pompano Beach Piano competition and the annual Piano Guild auditions.
I teach any age and any level, and always stress that learning a new instrument is very similar to learning a new language, it needs a lot of patience, persistence and repetitions. My lessons are customized to my students needs, and are work in progress as they needs may change over time. I always remind my students that music can give them instant gratification when they learn to play favorite songs.
I always encourage my students to tell me about their music preferences, so I can incorporate them in their music lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
All my tutoring sessions include reviews of previously learned material and if possible the use of technology. I use students books but often bring extra study materials if necessary.
All my lessons include technique and reading music. I like to use the Finger Power for piano students and Essential Elements for my string students, and scales for both.
Music theory: I use Master Theory and Fundamentals of Piano Theory books for younger ages, Alfred's music flash cards to support learning notes and musical terminology, and of course the fun part performance.

Besides Essential Elements for strings I also use String Tunes and I Can Read Music to add more fun to the lessons as well as support reading music during the lesson. For piano students I use Holiday Treats book, which comes in 2 different levels: Beginner & Intermediate, so my students have a new songs for a specific holiday.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I always bring violin with me to be able to show what I teach.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The students need to have their books and assigned material ready for tutoring. Instrumental students needs to have their music books, flashcards & instrument available as well as a pencil. I always stress with my students to be organized and prepared for their lesson, this way they will be able to focus better during the lesson. I always bring my violin with me. I also ask that the room where the lesson takes place be free of any distractions, such other siblings or any other noise. The quiet environment helps in faster learning.

*** Specialties ***
I tutor most K-12 subjects and prepare students to take ACT, SAT, GRE tests.
Music genres: Classical, traditional, Suzuki, Popular, Celtic, fiddle, Blues

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

I have had a few lessons now and enjoyed learning with Joanna. She is knowledgeable and patient. I was able to identify areas that I needed to work on with the Polish language because of her.

About Natalia
I am a professional teacher of Polish as a foreign language. I did a degree in Ukrainian and Polish Philology.
My online students come from all over the world. I also teach students in language schools and Polish association. I like preparing my lessons both for beginners and for more advanced (A1 - C2). In our classes you will practice all skills: grammar, reading, listening and most of all - speaking. I will prepare all the materials myself and send them to you before the class. So all you need to learn language is to have the Internet connection on your computer or phone and it would be gre
at to have some kind of file hosting service application(Dropbox, Google Drive). Please book the most suitable time for you class and have a good time learning the language, see you!

Natalia prepared me an excellent lesson, where all skills where combined. She challenged me into reading and understanding, but at the same time, being supportive and helpful. She also made sure to assess my level, which is very important. I totally recommend her as a teacher and I'm looking forward for more lessons :)'

I have been studying Polish with Agata for almost two years (once a week). She is an awesome teacher, very intelligent, fun and lively, full of energy and passion. Agata always prepared different types of exercises for me, so the lessons were never boring. She can find an individual way for every student, for example I had a hard time actually starting speaking in Polish with other people and Agata suggested to have more conversations and brought lots of interesting topics to discuss.
It was a great pleasure to be her student and I can't recommend her enough.

About Margaret P.

Polish is my native laungauge so you will have both the opportunity to learn the language and customs from a native. I do speak fluent English as well among other laungauge. I have developed my own curriculum which allows me to customize it to each student and what the individual wants to focus on when learning Polish. I have successfully taught Polish to others where within 6 months were they were comfortable enough to communicate in Polish while in Poland. I teach what I call strategy, making sure you understand how each piece of the grammar fits into the whole language.
