About Jennifer
I have been an avid teacher of Latin for the past six years. I graduated with a BA in Latin, and after spending a year teaching English in Thailand, I came back to teach Latin. I am certified in Latin, English, and ESL in one state and will soon be certified in another. I have taught both in public and private schools, and will be teaching Latin at a local private school next year. My favorite aspect of teaching is making the subject fun and accessible for every student. I am incredibly passionate about Latin and I regard it as a great intellectual challenge to help each student to be successful. I am experienced in tailoring my instruction to different learning styles as well as any learning difficulties. I look forward to getting to know you and sharing my love of Latin and English.

Mrs. Jerger was the best teacher I had in High school! She taught in a way that was intriguing and made you want to understand the content. She included various games, activities, and different teaching strategies for each student to help them learn in a different way. There was never a dull moment in the classroom. Her constant positive attitude and love for teaching always put a smile on everyone's face. I took her class for 2 different years and enjoyed them both so much! I was also involved in the National Latin Honors Society that she created at my high school and thoroughly enjoyed that as well! I would recommend her 100% and would love to take more classes from her! She's awesome!

Magistra Jerger, as we referred to her in my classes at Allatoona High School, is the best Latin teacher that I have ever had. In addition to this, she is one of the best teachers that I have had from all disciplines. She makes the subject fun and interesting, and allows her students to relate to the material. I have taken her Latin II, Latin III and Latin IV classes during my time in High School, and throughout all of them I can say that it was and interesting and enjoyable experience. One of the more enjoyable classes was Latin IV, where we translated Caesar in his conquest of the Gauls and Britons. We had assignments that were fun, interesting, and that helped to convey the material and the actions of what was going on in the translations.
In addition to taking Latin classes by Magistra Jerger, I also was involved in the Junior Classical League at Allatoona High School that she oversaw. During my Senior year at Allatoona, I was involved in the club as the Vice President where the leadership as well as Magistra Jerger organized Latin and Roman themed events that made the experience of being a student of Latin feel more enjoyable than other languages.
In short, Magistra Jerger is a dedicated, passionate teacher of Latin, who has a legacy of fine Latin students. Even after two years of graduating and continuing in college, without being able to continue studying Latin, I can pick up some of the texts and understand the language. This is because of the great teaching I had from Magistra Jerger. I recommend you to be her student if you want to not only understand the language, but also the culture, and enjoy doing so.

I'm 14 and Mr. Humberto treats me like an adult. Mr. Humberto is extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and patient. He slowly squeezes out all the bad habits that I had and puts good techniques in their place. He pushes me to be a better violinist. I am enjoying my time under Mr. Humberto's direction.

Humberto is one of the best violin instructors I have ever had. On our first lesson he came in with a smile stretching to his ears, and upon hearing me play immediately knew all the things that was wrong with my posture, playing, tone, rhythm and other problems as well. Ever since the first lesson, I have been making rapid improvements. Humberto is a great teacher and a swell guy, I would highly recommend him to anybody looking for violin lessons. -13 year old boy

About Xiomara
I have taught in the Maryland Public School System for 7 years now in a variety of populations. I have found that as a teacher I thrive on helping my students reach their maximum potential.

I resolutely believe that all students are capable of success with the proper support and guidance. I also believe that being successful in life can be attributed to open-mindedness and taking advantage of opportunities that increase your global awareness. As a Spanish teacher, I offer students the opportunity to learn a language that is increasingly as useful as English in the United States and indispensable in most other countries in the Americas. I also provide them with meaningful social and cultural experiences that are relevant and applicable to their daily lives.

About Ailey
Hello everyone!

Welcome to The Sunny Side Piano Studio! I'm very looking forward to meeting and working with you!
My name is Ailey and I will be your new piano teacher and we will be walking this amazing journey together! Isn't it interesting!!! I'm glad you chose me as your new teacher and I'm very excited to have you as my new student!
I'm a specialized, professional classical pianist, travelling around the United States, Asia, and Canada for various fundraising and solo concerts. I've been teaching children, age from 3 to 15 and beyond for almost ten years!
My profession is spreading the music and its love to the people who appreciate its magic, but my most important goal is to share the music with young people who love to learn and play it!
Music is a lot of fun and so is piano! Piano is a magic instrument! You will love learn
ing it and playing it for yourself, your family, friends, and your puppies too!
I am very thrilled to share my passion for music with you! and I hope you and I will be new best friends, beyond being just a teacher and a student!
I am a very funny and kind teacher:) When you meet me, you will realize "she is very funny" HAHA!!!
Just choose me and you will see why many students have worked with me and love learning music with me! And let me know if you have any questions about lessons or anything that is not about music too! I'm more than happy to answer them for you!

One thing! If you are interested in booking lessons with me, please only book five! Sometimes it is very difficult to find a good, I mean "really-good-matching" teacher for a student. I want to be the best teacher for you and I promise I will, but if for any reasons, we are not good matches, I will try my best to find a good one for you!

Thank you!!!

Cheers!

Your new music friend/teacher

SooJi has been teaching my 11 year old son for three years. I remember the day I met her. She was smiling for whole time of our first meeting. She helped us getting a good conditioned used keyboard for practice, by taking her time. One thing I always wondered was "does she have anger?" Before being a father, I'm also an artist, painter, so I know ho some artist behave which irritates me sometimes. SooJi recommended me to stay during few lessons so I can observe my son's improvements over time. She never gets mad. Literally, NEVER. Being a teacher is difficult job. Students can be rude and that makes teachers angry and sometimes lessons go real wrong. One day, my son got so tired that he couldn't focus on lesson. I got mad but SooJi said "that's ok. I understand. People work and get tired and that's normal. We have few minutes left so why don't we play something fun then?" and my son smiled. I don't know, but I can definitely feel SooJi has a very special talent of making people feel better and more comfortable. She knows how to ease people and how to deal with problems without getting angry or shouting at kids. Her lessons are so much fun, yet so much learning too. Sometimes even I enjoyed the lesson and I participated and SooJi and my son laughed at me haha. Before meeting her, my son never knew the "music" but after having lessons with her, my son already just completed his third solo recital which was around 40 minutes. I was so proud of him that I actually cried during the concert. SooJi is not just a teacher. My son one day told me that SooJi is his best friend. They get along well, my son laughs a lot which doesn't happen often and SooJi makes silly jokes that make him feel ease during lessons. They are just too many good things I can say about her, but I won't because it will get way longer.
One thing I want to say is if people want to be a teacher, they need to learn from her. They need to observe SooJi's talent, humor, kindness, and smiles. We love her so much and we appreciate her playing during our wedding. Thank you SooJi! You are our second daughter! We love you so much!

My daughter started taking Korean lessons from SooJi about a year ago. SooJi teaches her grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, and conversational phrases. My daughter's Korean language skills have improved dramatically with SooJi's teaching. SooJi explains things in a way that is easy to understand and her teaching has been a positive influence on my daughter.

SooJi, I don't even know where to begin...
She is an amazing human being in general. I pick up things very easy but for some reasons, Korean was and is a really challenge for me. I'm not sure why this is. Maybe because I want to learn this more than anything else? Maybe my brain wants to work harder to get where my heart is? who knows. But I do know why I'm even progressing in this challenge. "A good teacher" ca inspire, hope, stimulate the imagination, and instal "a love of learning" It that quote and a title, it would be SooJi. She is truly my only role model. I'm not exactly sure why she is this to me, but she is. I respect her so much and she inspires me all the time. Honestly, I can't imagine my life without her in it. SooJi means so much to me. More than what can be expressed with pretty little words. A teacher is supposed to give hope to students, but she does so much more She IS so much more. She isn't my teacher anymore. She is my friend, my role model, my sister. Because of her, hearts have changed, hearts have healed, and bonds have been created that some blonde little girls can't get anywhere else. Yes, sometimes SooJi scolds us, but that's what she's supposed to do. We know she cares even more when she does this because she wants us to grow. Without her, I don't think I would know anything nearly as close to what I know now. Not just the language, but also the culture. I want to always have someone like SooJi in my life. Someone who inspires and loves me. SooJi is honestly so amazing and perfect as a teacher, best friend and sister! I love her so much! I miss you!
