About Laurie
Hello! I am a skilled teacher with a passion for helping others learn and excel! I hold my bachelor's degrees in music education and vocal performance from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I completed my master's degree in vocal performance from the University of North Texas. I have been teaching over 15 years. I tailor instruction to your need. I can help you become a stronger musician, be ready for performances and auditions, prepare for special occasions, competitions, recitals, concerts and more!

I am also very interested in nutrition and cooking. I have thus studied these areas and love to share this knowledge with others. I can help you with healthy eating, meal planning and understanding nutrients to maximize your nutrition. Cooking is endless....I can show you many, many types. Just ask!

Contact me with any qu
estions or for information. I currently have good openings on Tuesdays from 6:00-6:30PM and Thursdays 5:30-6:30PM. If you are interested in cooking, please send me a message. I am sometimes able to accommodate cooking lessons on Sundays given that they take longer. Thank you!

About Itai
Itai graduated from SUNY Purchase with a BA in Studio Composition in 2007, and from Hebrew College with a Masters' Degree in Jewish Education in June, 2016. He has been working in after-school, Hebrew school, camp, and other supplementary educational settings for over ten years. Itai's Hebrew students are either studying for their bnei mitzvah, maintaining their conversational Hebrew, or learning for the purpose of competence of services or Torah study. His piano students have ranged from five-year olds just starting, to young children learning Classical pieces, to teens learning to play the songs they like, to adults working on their songwriting and improvisation. Lessons will accommodate the student's goals. Itai's strengths are improvisation, music theory and ear training, and accompaniment of popular songs - rock, theater, pop, folk,
etc. As a musician, Itai writes songs, composes music for communal singing, improvises, and plays in a Klezmer band. Aside from tutoring, Itai works as a songleader, teaches at the Hebrew school at his synagogue, growing a new outdoor Hebrew school, and occasionally teaches at an outdoor education program.

Please feel free to get in touch and ask questions!

Please note that there's a name I don't use anymore and one of my reviews reflects that. Yes I am the same person.

This first class was great. We had some small problems with the camera and voice, but that had nothing to do with Itai. My son was excited when class was over. He is looking forward to his next lesson.

About ali
My name is Ali Y, I graduated from Boston University with a master degree in 2017. Before I graduate, I started to teach violin and Mandarin in Takelessons, as you can see in my reviews, I have a very high rating since I started, every student like to play violin with me because I always can see their smile in the lesson.

I’ve begun to study in BU with Professor Bayla Keyes since 2015, in these two years, I’ve learned a lot from her, not only my violin skill but also a lot of teaching methods.

I got my bachelor degree in Renmin University of China, which is one of the best university in China. I had 24 students before I came to the States, several of them won the first prize in different violin competition.

I’m very patient. And I know how to commute with students. Most of my student can learn very fast and be very happy at t
he same time. I hope my student to love music instead of just playing the music.

Taruna seems very good at getting kids interested in learning. My kids had their first session yesterday and she kept the conversations a mix of Hindi and English - that probably was a big reason my kids felt comfortable and ready to continue learning with her. Also, she is pleasant and welcoming.

I've had a wonderful experience learning Hindi with Taruna. I went to classes for over a year, and learned more than I would have imagined.
She has multiple academic resources to help make learning experience easier and fun, as well as helps students practice different skills in each class.
She covers all areas (speaking, reading, listening, grammar, writing) with a well defined methodology, that help to learn gradually but steadily.

She wrote the books used for the sessions, which I find very intuitive because they grow in complexity as you read.

I also found quite helpful that she was flexible with the hours available, otherwise it would be very challenging to find a good time for the class due to my job requirements.

Thanks!

Super pro. Has all the tools for a beginning child: textbook but also story books, posters, images, videos. Sends message with the homework and links to what they did in class. Knows exactly how to start the child with the language, very clear step by step progression. My daughter looks forward to the lesson, so that says it all.

About EMILY
Having been a teacher/tutor for many years, including improv, theater, elementary school math, English & reading comprehension. My style is patient, yet focused on learning and pushing boundaries, while making sure my students have fun and enjoy learning.

I was Adjunct Faculty at Clark University for 5 years in the Visual and Performing Arts Department, after that I unofficially tutored many of my friends & family in various subjects, mostly math and essays.

It's important to me to learn how the students I work with learn, organize themselves & absorb information, because everyone is different. There is no right way to teach each person. I want to take the time to get to know you as a student, so we can work in the most productive way possible. I love those magical moments where a challenging concept clicks, or when a student finds th
e fun in a subject that may have felt tedious - they've found a reason to WANT to learn. I want to bring that positive energy to everyone I tutor.

I majored in French in undergrad, studied abroad in Dijon, where I became fluent, and have traveled back many times, to preserve my French language. My strengths are in the beginning stages, where you're learning all of the basic phrases and things begin to come together. I also prefer to teach French through French, rather than translation through English.

I've been a writer & avid reader my entire life. I was always the friend that edited my friend's papers/grammar, loving to discuss the language and learning/understanding why we write things the way we do. I have a good eye for detail as well, which helps with proofreading.

I want to bring positive, fun thoughts to your education. It doesn't have to be difficult and tedious - we can learn and grow, through the lens of excitement. If you work with me you, you will get a patient, compassionate tutor that wants you to be the best version of you that you can be. We will work together to ensure that happens.
