Music Director of the Chicago Philharmonia Orchestra since 1985, Farobag has also served as Managing Director of the University of Chicago Performing Artists Series from 1989 through 2002 and principal conductor of its resident professional ensembles. A skilled interpreter of Baroque literature as well, Farobag continues in his capacity as Artistic Advisor to the Baroque Masterplayers, a virtuoso ensemble that concatenates period performance techniques with modern instruments thus creating a unique voice within the realm of 17th and 18th- century repertoire.
A double graduate of the Eastman School of Music and the University of Rochester, Farobag studied under Anastasia Jempelis, a pioneer of Suzuki violin pedagogy in the United States. In addition to the Suzuki curriculum, he is also associated with the Royal Conservatory Music Devel
opment Program that sets a national standard of musical achievement in various fields.
Befitting his penchant for encouraging artistic interest amongst younger members of his community, Farobag is also the principal conductor of the Zoroastrian Symphony Orchestra that offers a unique mixture of young and seasoned professionals sitting side-by-side in a strictly professional setting. Since the year 2000, the ZSO has staged highly successful performances at various venues in Houston, Chicago, and Toronto. A New Year's eve performance in Los Angeles is scheduled for 2014.
Having also taken graduate-level coursework in educational psychology, mathematics, and philosophy at the University of Chicago, Farobag offers tutelage in various areas of elementary and secondary education as well as in SAT, ACT and GRE test preparation.
Additionally, as a certified Reiki Master, therapeutic and/or educational sessions are also extended to those who may be inclined to alternative healing techniques.
*** Lesson Details *** Sheer technique is necessary but insufficient to play an instrument well. Aural skills, that include the study of functional tonality and voice-leading are important factors that impart musicality. This is of great import if the prospective musician wants the audience to truly enjoy his or her performance !
Whether it be the 3 Rs or preparation in the performing arts, a remarkable instructor must go well beyond the subject matter at hand and help imbue the student with a spirit of wonder that, in due time, will foster enthusiasm necessary for excellence.
A child emulates and learns to communicate in his or her mother-tongue through a supporting and nurturing environment. Likewise, a student needs to be sufficiently motivated to embrace learning in a familiar supportive manner.
*** Studio Equipment *** The In-Studio lesson take place in the living room. Driveway parking. No pets.
*** Travel Equipment *** None; I do expect a reasonably good piano / keyboard at a student's home.
*** Specialties *** Traditional and Suzuki-based education. Performance and musicality training is open to all instrumentalists.
*** CD's*** Classical Energy, Triton Sound, TS 8501 Salut D'Amour, Triton Sound, TS 9014 Epiphanies1, The Halford Company
As I said under my ACT description, I have been tutoring this as well since 2013. I have the latest books and software to help with the test.
*** Travel Equipment *** I expect the student to buy the books that I need them to buy and to have either a keyboard or piano. I also expect that the Spanish students will obtain the proper materials that I ask of them.
I read best reviews. Can phone number of the Teacher be placed here so that I could enroll.

Ms. Janai was the best tutor I have ever had. No matter the day, or time she was always there to help me out. Either it was math, science, writing, etc. she'd help me with every subject no matter how long it took for me to get it right, every subject was like her first nature. She was amazing teaching in person and just as good online. I've never met another tutor like Janai, she understands what you're going wrong and what your difficulties are, but she always manages to turn those difficulties around and make you better at understanding what you need to do better in order to succeed. If you're looking for an outstanding tutor Janai is the way to go!
January 26, 2018
Janai is great with older adults. She's so patient and makes me feel relaxed even when I'm saying the wrong words. She has passion! and that's exciting to see.
I have 11 years previous tutoring experience in a variety of subjects such as Algebra I, Algebra II English, SAT, ACT, MS Excel, MS Access, MS word, GRE, Geometry.
Overall, I have been very academically successful myself. I enjoy helping students understand difficult concepts. I am also very patient with my students and won't give up until we've accomplished our goals.
I've achieved such items as valedictorian of my high school class, National Honor Society, Who's Who Among American High School Students, Distinguished Graduate Student of the Year at Robert Morris University, Alpha Chi National Honor Society, Alpha Iota Mu Honor Society, National Dean's List, and a 4.0 GPA at the Bachelor's and Master's level.
Great! I learned quite a bit and my instructor is fabulous!

I really hit JACKPOT with Joanne. Joanne is very technical, yet explains things in a manner to make you understand. I had a great first session with Joanne and look forward to many more, as my budget permits. She helped me with exactly what I needed help with and taught me a few things in the meantime.
SAT Math requires both strategy and practice;Working with High school students including Beverly Hills High School and Culver City High, we identified key terminologies that typically repeat in SAT tests and used these to structure problem solving strategies with guaranteed success in the outcomes;Students have improved in their Scores and reigned in on their anxieties while going into the tests.

Standardized tests can be tough, but as someone who scored a 33 on the ACT (comparable to a 2180 on the SAT), I'm ready and qualified to help you do the best you can! We will work through multiple practice exams, and I review all the test prep material before we meet so that we can work through the test question by question to help guide you through subject areas that might be tougher for you. We will also talk about general testing techniques and tips that will help you be the best standardized test taker you can be!
I am a woman of many hats, as you can most likely see by the subjects in which I offer lessons! I am a recent graduate of Simpson College, a small liberal arts school in the Midwest, with a double major in Vocal Performance and Mathematics. I am also a graduate of the International Baccalaureate program in high school, making me a strong writer and communicator. I am currently attending the Boston Conservatory for my Master's of Vocal Performance and I specialize in opera.
My goal is to always give you the most personalized experience possible! Whether it's a voice lesson or a math tutoring session, I cater the entire time to your exact needs and work outside our sessions to make sure I come in as prepared as possible to give you the exact experience you want.
I would love to talk to you in more detail about any of my areas of expe
rtise! Please feel free to get ahold of me and we can discuss what will best help you achieve your goals.
Hannah was the music director at the Scotch Ridge Presbyterian Church in Carlisle, Iowa for the past three years, and was a wonderful addition to our congregation! I serve as the pastor of that church, and was always impressed with Hannah's ability to help not only plan the music for worship - this include weekly hymn selections - but also her incredible singing voice and vocal range. She will be missed dearly, and I do not hesitate in the least to recommend her expertise and skills in teaching.
June 7, 2017
Hannah is kind, patient, and knowledgeable. She is extremely musical and has a beautiful voice - and she plays the piano well! I highly recommend her!
I stress understanding (geometrically/analytically) rather than memorizing formulas. This ensures my students can derive formulas/solutions even without memorization.
I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn test taking skills whether you are a total newbie, or a budding intermediate, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have close to 8 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!
I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.
I enjoy tutoring (doing it ever since I was in high school for my classmates) and helping other overcome problems that I have encountered myself because it enhances my own understanding and makes me happy that my self-studying is helping others. Sometimes, my students even bring up alternative ways of thinking that I have never thought of before!
I have completed upper level calculus and have a solid foundation to help any high school or early college kids struggling with the subject.
I am a very down to earth, calm and patient person who absolutely loves helping people. I have tutored since highschool starting with special needs kids and into college where I tutored peers and their siblings in Math/Bio/Chemistry and Programming. I am willing to spend whatever amount of time it takes to pre-prep before your lesson so that you get the most out of your time and walk out with the best understanding you can! Contact me and lets get started!
"It's great that Jasmine can establish rapport so quickly with our cranky pre-teen."
"They're very informative and patient, I'm a slow learner and I have issues with concentration/my attention span but they were very patient and helpful. Th
ey worded things in a way I could easily understand and helped me learn a lot faster than other tutors have."
"My son was scheduled for the end of the school year Regents Algebra 1 the next day after we hired Chris on this platform. Chris was an excellent tutor and
very experienced. He did the handholding patiently and helped my son gain new insights to problem solving. I highly recommend Chris and plan on using his services for my son's next school year more regularly!"

"Aalok Shah's in depth knowledge of admission testing, coupled with his easy demeanor, made all the difference for our son as he prepped for the college pr
ocess. In addition to advising our son on the proper material to study, Aalok taught him to strategically tackle each section and manage his question answering time accordingly. He set up realistic weekly goals for our son to meet as well as providing many study guides and materials for his reference. We found Aalok’s advice on college planning extremely useful and he was always readily available to answer any questions that we had. Aalok’s calm and encouraging personality eased the stress surrounding standardized testing. This fall, our son will join the Rutgers University inaugural Honors College Class of 2019 with a full tuition, room & board scholarship worth $102,400. We are extremely grateful to Aalok for the integral role he played in making this happen. We cannot recommend Aalok highly enough to any family who is embarking on the college pathway."
"He helped me a lot and patiently made sure I understood everything. The best math teacher you will ever have."
"Excellent! Mena did a great job. My son took an SAT test before and after Patrick's tutoring and showed a noticeable improvement, using several specific
tips and insights Mena taught him."
"Wes is a very considerate tutor who will most certainly help you improve. He is always on time never missed a class and even spent some of his time in ord
er for my son to understand the lesson. I higly recommend him he truly deserves the 5 stars. In a matter of a month he helped my son improve drastically in his SAT. In which helped him get accepted to a Univeristy. Thank you Wes"
"Craig has been tutoring 2 of my children, one a junior prepping for the SAT and the other a freshman needing help with Bio and math. From the feedback I g
et, my children love him. He is patient, and systematic and methodical and from the brief glimpses I get, he is very interactive and genuinely nurtures a love of science in them"
"Leona was a very patient instructor and made sure that I understood the material covered before moving on to the next topic. Her teaching style helped me
