About Chris
A short history of my experience with music and education:

The first instrument I learned to play was the guitar in 2001.

I played the guitar on the worship team at FBC of Midway in Plant City, FL from 2001 to 2005.

I began teaching private music lessons in 2003.

I played bass guitar in a Christian rock band called of Anastasis from 2003 to 2005.

I played acoustic, electric, and bass guitar on the worship team at Family Worship Center in Lakeland, FL from 2006 to 2012.

I worked as a freelance audio engineer with my in-home recording studio throughout college (and now I just do it for fun).

I played bass and sang background vocals in a worship band called Skyline from 2007 to 2009.

I taught music and trained a student led worship team at Hope Christian Academy from 2009-2010.

I began performing independently from
2009 to present.

I played guitar and sang lead vocals in a Christian Rock Band called A Story Familiar from 2010 to 2012.

From 2010 to 2012, I taught in the Polk County public school system of Florida from 2010 to 2012, where I also worked heavily with students with special needs.

In July of 2012 I moved to Aurora, CO as a volunteer musician to help plant Streams Church.

In January of 2013 I married my beautiful wife.

Upon arriving home from our honeymoon, I was hired as Worship Director for Streams church, and I have worked there since. Some of my responsibilities include developing and executing weekly music set lists, creating charts and sheet music for new songs, and training the worship team in new music.

As for me personally, I love Jesus, my wife, and music.  As I'm sure you can tell by my brief history, I do a lot of church service and ministry, if for this for any reason makes you wary, let me assure you: I play a lot more than just church music.  As a lover of music, there is not much that I don't enjoy in the world of music, and I've taught most of it.  I've taught the young and the not-so-young, and whether you're just beginning to read music, or you're just eager to learn your favorite song, I work closely with you to ensure you achieve the results you desire!

*** Lesson Details ***
Four things I focus on:
1. Creating individualized lesson plans for you
2. Teaching you new techniques and polishing old ones
3. Building your confidence
4. Both of us having a fun, rockin' time!

When taking lessons from me, students can expect an environment that is a balance between being strict and laid back.Music is something that must be learned, and as such, it must also be practiced week-to-week in between lessons.  I consider myself strict because I'll hold you accountable to doing your best to learn the best. Despite holding you accountable, I think the overall mood of the learning environment is laid back; we'll have a lot of fun learning music.  I make sure that we'll be learning at your pace, but keep in mind, this doesn't mean I won't push you to be your best! My teaching experience has taught me one thing: everyone is different. That being the case, I create lesson plans that are unique to you.  Where you will be in a month, six months, a year, largely depends on your commitment to learn, but I'll promise you this:  all of my efforts will be utilized to maximize your potentiality.

*** Attendance Policy ***
I am very flexible with attendance, but I do require a one hour notice that you will not be at the lesson. If a one hour notice is not given, the lesson will be marked as "missed" resulting in payment from your TakeLessons account for the missed lesson.

If you are simply running late, please be sure to let me know-I try to be as flexible as possible, but if the student is over 15 minutes late, I typically mark this lesson as "missed" as well.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide the following equipment for in-studio lessons:
Guitar amplifier
Bass amplifier
Drum Set
Computer
iPad
Recording equipment
Music stand
Seating area for parents/guardians to sit/listen in on the lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
When offering in-home lessons, I provide the following when traveling for in-home lessons: iPad
For in-home lessons, I expect students to have whatever equipment is necessary for learning their instrument of interest (This typically includes at least the student's instrument and a music stand, but may also include a metronome, tuner, etc.).

*** Specialties ***
Rock, Jazz, Blues, Folk, Praise/Worship, Indie

We've only had 2 lessons so far and he is great! He is encouraging, polite, flexible, kind and takes the extra time if needed. He definitely knows how to teach and knows the natural developmental progression to build the foundation for a beginner and explains what the next goals she'll be working towards. He even learned a Justin Bieber song just to make my kid happy. Lol!

As this is basics of English for beginners i would start with English grammar the first topic would be "Noun". A noun is a name of a person,place,animal, or thing.It is classified into Singular(single/one} for example book, cup, chair etc and Plural {more than one} for eg books ,cups,chairs etc.for the plural of most nouns add 's'.There are many other rules to make plural like add es ,some nous have different plural forms, we learn all of them as the classes progress.

About Safoora S.

Close

I divide my lessons into small chunks/parts to make it more understandable.
The best way to grasp the attention of learners is to run absorbing and fun activities.
Warm ups play a very essential role in making the lesson more comprehensive.

About Safoora
Would you like to take your English talking proficiency to the next dimension? Make sense of how to pass through your mind effectively and diminish your inflection? My name is Safoora Sharaf. I am an English language educator. Encouraging English is my obsession. Consequently, I have had the benefit of being a level 5 certified TEFL teacher with online/onsite English instructing background.

I see firsthand with 5 years of experience what it resembles to realize a moment of learning second language and this is the reason I have examined English in detail. Also, I am fun loving and I fancy meeting all individuals who really want to learn English.

Most loved statement: "Regardless of how gifted you are, exertion will dependably assist you with being progressively effective"

I'll tell you the best way to do all that! Book a class
today, and improve your English skills now.

Hello,

With over 8 years experience in tutoring, I have learned what methods work and those that don’t. I’m upbeat, patient, easy going, empathetic, and generally well-liked by others. I’m very good at adapting to different learning styles and have a knack for eliciting the best out of my students through motivation and positive reinforcement.

Throughout university, and after, I mentored many students with great results. In addition to academics I helped them get the most out of their college experience. Everyone I helped benefited greatly, and one runs a very successful consulting business.

Aside from math and English, I’m a very proficient test and note taker. I speak conversational Spanish, and basic Japanese.

I can help with grammar, syntax, pronunciation, and essay writing skills. I have helped 1st through university students with essays and have won thousands of dollars in essay contests.

About Mitch
Whether you're completely lost, just need a little help, or need some test/note taking tips I can be very helpful. My patient, easy going, and positive mindset is very conducive to creating a great learning atmosphere. I can also be very useful to those that aren't motivated, I have a knack for finding the source of motivation for others.

Are you frustrated with the college application process? I can assist in this area and in aclimating to college environment. I've mentored many students through college, with great success.

Hope to work with you soon.

I have taught english for several years, specializing in conversational and written english! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. I understand the intricacies and difficulties of learning a new language and I cannot wait to have you in my class!!

About Jonah
I am a professional writer and teacher of English and Spanish. I graduated from University of California, Davis, with a degree in Political Science and Economics.

I just finished a year and a half service in the PeaceCorps teaching both English and Spanish in the Dominican Republic. I taught advanced grammar lessons to native Spanish speakers. I, also, taught basic english (and a bit of advanced english) to all ages.

My service taught me how to care for a student's needs and the patience to show how each sentence needs to be grammatically structured. I love teaching both languages through conversation as it is the most natural way of learning how to speak a different language.

I have a passion for teaching languages and I hope you will highly consider me as a spanish/english instructor!

I've been tutoring professionally since 2012, starting by helping other Dartmouth students with their essays. And what I saw shocked me...

...Even Ivy League students didn't know how to write!

I was lucky to have a rockstar English teacher in high school, but it was at Dartmouth where I spent hours with professors on weekends, going over essays, seeing what the best teachers in the world (according to US News & World Report 2013) thought made a perfect essay.

Now that I've "cracked the code" I can teach your student the simple tricks. Trust me, it's easier to learn how to write when you're young--it makes the rest of your life so much easier.

In 2019, China's largest college-prep company saw how I was helping students and asked me to lecture for them in 10 major cities in China.

Now, not only do I tutor essay writing and English homework--I also do college prep, including building resumes, tailoring applications, and college essay coaching.

About Troup
By getting myself into Dartmouth, graduating cum laude with honors, and then volunteering as an applicant interviewer for Dartmouth, I learned how top schools select applicants.

I believe everyone has a story to tell in their personal statement, and I work with students through the brainstorming-phase through polishing their essays. I also help with resume-building, college selection, and demystifying the application process!

I also do English and humanities homework tutoring for any grade level.
