Any level of math and any age

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 teach 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, Curricul
um 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

Experienced, knowledgable and persistent in teaching. I did not think I will be able to learn fast, but Ilona helps in every step. From holding the bow rightly, to using fingers, learning the language of music, she is patient and persistent. I recommend her without reservation..

While in college, I tutored students in various Math course ranging from Calculus to Linear Algebra. My students went on to get a deep understanding of the subject material and did very well in the classes I tutored them in. I believe for a student to learn, it takes effort on both the student's part and the teacher's. I take my time to fully understand what the student's weaknesses are and how to approach them while instilling confidence in the student.

About Michael
While in college, I tutored other students in various courses including Calculus, linear Algebra, and Physics to name a few. I also tutored and was a Graduate Assistant in a few Electrical Engineering classes such as Circuits 1 and a few labs as well. I have a Bachelors and Masters in Electrical Engineering and I am currently employed as an Electrical Engineer. Math and Science is what I have known all my life. I assure you that you are in good hands.
As far as teaching baseball, I played for a Division 1 team in college. I also worked in one of the largest baseball camps in the Northeast, the New York Baseball Academy, throughout my entire collegiate career. I taught children the fundamentals of hitting and fielding in a way that was fun and easy to learn.

Michael is a great tutor. I've had so much trouble solving homework problems but Michael is very patient and takes time to thoroughly explain how to solve really difficult problems. He is very knowledgeable about physics and can help anyone who is struggling with understanding concepts and solving problems

As a Math teacher, I believe that an important part of the teacher role is to conduct each student's learning progress and support it. I also believe that interpersonal interaction, exploration and enjoyment should be an important part of the learning process, so my lessons usually progresses through student research, conversations, and achieving new knowledge by using their existing knowledge.

About Adina
This days I am working as a teacher in an after school program in Brookline. I have recently finished all of the requirements for my second BA in Mathematics education and teaching certificate . My first degree is in Industrial Engineering and Management.
After working for several years in the industry as an information system analyst I decided to combine my knowledge of Math and Engineering with my passion for teaching and working with children and completed a unique education certification program for graduates called “Mabatim” which includes a second BA in Education and a teacher certification. My teaching experience includes student teaching of Mathematics at the middle school and high school level and two years of working as a teacher working with new immigrants and children from disadvantaged backgrounds between the first and six

From Algebra to logic, through more advanced topics like Calculus, differential equations, derivations, integrations etc.. I take you through what seems “complex” at first hand, to a more digestible set of steps to solve a problem with the use of examples, real life associations and pictorial representations.
I graduated “summa cum laude “ with a bachelor in Electrical Engineering from Kennesaw State University;
Where I learned that the more to study a topic, the more it looks less complex. With a guide, you get to grasp concepts even faster.

About Freeman Ulrich
My name is Freeman Talla, I’m a “Summa Cum laude” graduate from Kennesaw State University with a bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering, currently a full-time firmware Engineer at United Technologies Corporation.

I love math! I use it every day in my business. Students can expect real word problems and hands on learning. Each lesson plan is custom made to fit the students individual needs. I will put an end to the "when will I ever use this" question

I love education, I come from a family of educators and I find myself teaching someone something every day just about. I have been educating students through my workshop for 5 years now in Business, photography and Video. But I also love kids and enjoy early education math and science.

I have been a business owner for 10 years now and I try to incorporate real world problems into every lesson.

When I see the light bulb go off, I is such a great feeling.
