We find different methods and models to encourage the connection between understanding problems and developing solution-oriented mindsets. Students develop greater awareness, approach, and integration of algebra both for their classes as well as the use in practical "real time" (i.e. life application).
VOCAL COACH Rehabilitating and strengthening voices are two of my top specialties, and each lesson will have specific exercises tailored to helping you transform your voice into the highest and best version of your instrument. I work with singers signed to labels as well as the indie artist just starting to find his/her voice, style, and signature sound. My coaching approach incorporates some of the newest technologies that have shown extraordinary results in breaking down the inner blocks of each artist. It is a tremendously joyful and fulfilling experience to watch as my students really let their instrument shine brightly, boldly, and with an aboslutely stunning groundedness as they discover how powerful they truly are.
Poised, energized, and armed with unforgettable performance ability, Michelle G
. is a firework in the artistic arena. Her training began at the young age of 3 with the violin, and a few years later received classes for piano and voice. Excelling in all three, Michelle developed a very passionate and dramatic personality that eventually led her to more dramatic genres such as opera and stage acting. Her aptitude to understand human emotions and relationships gives her a wide spectrum to play in as an actress. There is an organic flow to her interpretations both as an actress and musician that leads the audience to feel her emotional current. Her honest characterizations introduce deeper perspectives on what seems like the ordinary roles and storylines. Amongst the many other leads that she has played, her participation in roles like “Susanna” in The Marriage of Figaro, or “Donna Elvira” in Don Giovanni embody much vibrancy and integrity. Through the development of her voice as a singer and actress, she has crossed over into other media such as voice over commercial work and vocals for pop/main stream music productions. She has recently participated as a vocalist and violinist in the albums of artists such as international jazz pop artist David Longoria, Latin pop singer Erick Bolivar, Grammy-nominated percussionist Souhail Kaspar, and American Idol’s Seysha. Over the last few years she has unraveled her musical skills as a songwriter/composer/arranger and has even had some small victories acquiring music placements on TV shows (NCIS, short film “Sumtin’ Like Dat”, The Dictator) for herself and some of her colleagues. Her singing can also be heard on the hit tv show "Jane The Virgin", "Castle" and "Shameless" amongst others.
Education Michelle completed her Associates of Arts for Music/Music Education at the age of 18, and got later graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Miami with a Bachelor's of Arts for Musical Theater and Music Business, as well as from Florida International University with a Master's of Music in Vocal Performance.
*** Lesson Details *** I tailor my lessons to my student's needs, style, abilities, and goals. Learning is truly a fun and passionate adventure for me, and my enthusiasm has consistently been a contagious quality :) I love to challenge myself & my students to discover how immense their true potential is, and I create a safe and fun environment to explore such facets.
My curriculum is combination of solid tradition (Suzuki method for piano & violin, and Bel Canto technique for singing) interwoven with pop-culture, and modern influences. Within the first 3-6 months, my students will know the basic building blocks of music - which includes scales, arpeggios, triads, intervals, technique, and performance repertoire; and for my singers this will include proper breath technique, tone placement, support, very often increased vocal range (both high and low), and will feel significantly stronger vocally and more confident getting up to sing.
*** Studio Equipment *** Full size Keyboard, mics, pro tools, Violin (electric, acoustic, and Chinese Ehru)
It's been a great experience to have lessons online. Although it lasted 45 minutes, I have seen that these types of lessons are very useful and practical. Thank you for providing these lessons!

Michelle is awesome!!! She is so sweet and a very good and encouraging instructor. She inspires me to be a better teacher. She helped me with where I was weak and gave me homework. I will definitely be working with her for EVERYTHING that I want to learn.
Experienced in all levels of algebra, I try to make things interesting, and keep it creative.
I am a 26 year old tutor, I have been playing guitar for 20 years, piano for 10, ukulele for 10, and bass for about 20 years as well. I have been teaching music for multiple years, and have worked with a wide variety of students (young and old) and instruments. I like to take a relaxed, productive approach to teaching music to help students develop their own style and let their creativity flourish in ways that a traditional class in music wouldn't allow. I can help you learn what you want, and if you aren't quite sure what that is, I can help you along in the process.
I've been teaching Algebra for 10 years. I strive to show students the beauty behind mathematics and encourage them to enjoy it. I work with students at their own pace with the main focus being on developing the confidence to be able to understand what questions are asking and how to solve problems. I prefer to spend the first two lessons testing a student's confidence, strengths, and weaknesses before I select the teaching materials. I cannot wait to help you reach your math goals!
I am a Ph.D. student in Statistics and earned a Bachelor's in mathematics from St. Norbert College in 2016. I have been tutoring for over 10 years now, starting with a my work as a Program Staff at the local Boy's and Girl's Club. Now I just enjoy working with students one-on-one and in small groups.
I love teaching and plan on being a professor after finishing my Ph.D. Further, I am trying to develop classes that students will enjoy and be able to take with them. I hate when I hear people say that they hated stats or math because of this class they had when they were younger. My goal is to change that by creating a learning system that is enjoyable and efficient.
I have taught Algebra for over five years and it is probably my favorite math to teach. Its foundation is a few simple rules that with repetition are easily memorized and then can be used throughout the rest of your time studying it.
I have tutored all sections of both the ACT and SAT as well as many other subjects for over five years and have logged over 3,000 tutoring hours as well as over 650 five star ratings through other tutoring services.
I tutor because I love the challenge of helping people understand new ideas and enjoy making it fun for them. I also like the flexibility that it gives me to pursue my other interests including filmmaking and surfing.
Some of the other subjects I tutor are: SHSAT/TOEFL/GED, Statistics, research paper writing, Geometry, college essay writing, Algebra I & II, English, probability, study skills and have helped students with a wide range of learning disabilities.
Best experience! My son who is on 6th grade had to take the SSAT in a short period of time and Chris got him engaged from the first class, not easy for an online class. He was easy to communicate and was open to work with our schedule. Thanks for all the work you did!

Great Algebra tutor! Chris was tutoring my daughter in algebra. He picked up very quickly to see where her weakness is. He is very patient and takes his time in making sure my daughter gets it done. Excellent tutor.

Knowledgable and EXTREMELY patient
Christopher came here to teach me pivot tables which I needed to know for work. I had no knowledge of what they were or did and when he left I had an understanding which I did not think I could achieve in such a short time. The patience he showed was wonderful as I was nervous and he put me at ease which is not an easy task! He also had to figure out what I need to do (in Excel)when I do not completely understand it myself but by the time he left, he understood and I am confident that I can succeed now and it is all because of Christopher!
Numbers and letters can be intimidating at first glance, but can learned without difficulty and clearly explained with little time. I will offer a comprehensible review and lecture of all algebra concepts and will help you achieve the grade you want on your next exam. I received a perfect score in my algebra end of course exam and am willing to share all my testing tips and tricks to help you excel to the next level. I’ve had experience with this subject for over 5 years and have a passion for learning and teaching it.
I am an engineering student at the University of Miami and have been challenged to help students understand and excel at my FAVORITE subject, MATH. I have become well accustomed to the testing atmosphere and have developed shortcuts, testing tips and strategies, and easier methods for remembering and understanding the subject material. I am committed to helping my students comprehend the foundations and core principles required for excelling in mathematics. I am patient with my students and will show them how much FUN learning math can be!
In the past, I have provided instruction and tutoring to many of my peers and have helped them receive the grade they wanted in these subjects. I was also employed by a tutoring agency called "Clutch Prep" that offers extra teaching in math and science fields. Students are expected to dramatically i
mprove their math skills, testing techniques, and work ethic.
Please consider choosing me for an exciting, learning-filled adventure!
When I start a lesson in algebra, i seek to get to know how to best approach the concept in a way that works best for the student. I look for ways to improve the quality of my lessons for ways that make the most sense to students. If a student is taking a full algebra course, then we can work to make sure that the student gets the grade that they hope to achieve. I help the student by ordering their textbook if necessary and I also make videos of concepts that the student is working on to better assist them. Overall, I want my lessons to be a positive experience.
I am a graduate of Alabama State University and have a Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics. I have years of experience helping students in the ASU mathematics lab. I also have experience tutoring high school students as part of the ASPIRE Mentoring Program and I have tutored elementary and middle school students as well. Topics that I have tutored include basic math, pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, and calculus.
While tutoring at ASU, I have modified my tutoring style to provide better service. What happens is that during the first few sessions, I get to know each person and some things about the course that they are taking such as the syllabus content, the type of grade the person wants in the course, the number of points each assignment is worth, and the date of the next major test. I then try to hold tutoring sessions in accordance w
ith this information. During a session, I go over homework, explain concepts that may be misunderstood, go over topics that I think are especially important, and sometimes give practice problems. I do a lot of visual explanations for concepts. Periodically, I would ask about the grade that was made on a recent test and modify my tutoring style if necessary. My goal is to help everyone that I tutor strengthen their mathematical skills.
Usually, I tutor by appointment and each session usually lasts for about 1 hour. In order to reschedule or cancel an appointment, I request a 24-hour notice. I am willing to meet in a public place or online.
I also make videos that cover math concepts in order to make it a little easier for students to get the information that they need to be successful. If you would like for me to make a video, please let me know!
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!
I am a computer science student at Umass Boston. I love learning and teaching is a learning mode for me. I love finding connection between everything in this seemly random world we live in. I am very comfortable in math. Most kids and adults alike, dread mathematics because it is taught in a non enjoyable way. So, I try to make it not only relevant and applicable to the world but also to the student's interests and hobbies.

"So far, so good, and we plan to continue to use Colin as a tutor. My daughter started tutoring with him for extra practice and gaining insight into concep
ts that she was having trouble with in middle school math. She went from a low C to finishing out the school year with a B in math!"
"professional, punctual, positive, makes lesson fun
Jessie, tutors my 14 y/o daughter in algebra for more than a year now. She is professional, punctual,
very positive and makes algebra fun (if that's possible). She reinforces what Grace has done well and reviews how she can do better. I highly recommend Jessie!"
"My daughter described her lesson as excellent, thorough and fun. She is looking forward to future lessons. I could not be more pleased."
"Marina is very patient, knowledgeable and professional. Love the way Marina teaches. Thank you."
"Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools. I see marked improvements in their grades for this
past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise. Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough."
Julia is so amazing!! I was flunking high school math and my teachers were horrible... i hated studying by myself and not getting it. When I he
ard about her through my friends i thought i would come once as a last chance, but now my friends ask ME to help them study for math!!! all it took was a couple of lessons to get me on track, and I feel GREAT that i started! thanks julia!!"
"My son, who has had a terrible time with math in the classroom, enjoyed the session and looks forward to the next one. This is a low pressure, pleasant, a
nd enjoyable way for him to do his math. I look forward to the next time."
When you're solving algebra word problems, it's smart to have a plan of attack ready to follow. Solving word problems may seem difficult, but when you read through the problem and can figure out what the specific equation is, it's no harder than a regular algebra problem. Here are some tips for getting a solid system of steps to follow when you are solving algebra word problems:
1. Read through the entire problem before trying to solve it.
