Don was very kind, patient, and encouraging. He brought over a lot of his own materials so it was much less stressful trying to find things to do.

Don does an outstanding job! He is able to connect authentically my son and customized the lessons to fit his learning style and needs. Don has drawn so much out of him musically and has also built a community of students that play together. He makes the lessons fun and engaging. He has opened up my 7-year old to the joy of playing and performing and has helped create a love of music. I highly recommend Don as a music teacher.

I've been writing for many years, often professionally in a variety of different roles. No matter what you need, I can help you to find a way to say it better, more efficiently, or with greater poetry.

I worked as a professional Writing Tutor at the University of Southern California.

About Paul
While attending the University of Southern California, where I received my M.F.A., I worked as a writing tutor in the USC Writing Center and also taught Classical Greek Mythology. After graduation, I taught Verbal, Writing and Literature SAT classes and worked as a private tutor in a variety of subjects.

I later taught for five years at the New York Film Academy in Universal City, CA, where I taught a variety of Critical Studies classes to various levels of students, some in certificate programs and others working towards their M.F.A.

As a former English and Spanish double major, I have always enjoyed teaching at various levels. Most of my other work these days involves the writing and editing of short stories, screenplays and novels.

You’ll find that I have the education, background and experience to be an excellent instruct
or for your needs.

Paul was my favorite teacher at the New York Film Academy.
Unlike most of the teachers, Mr. Paul put a lot of effort and creativity into planning his classes, which made them both stimulating and fun for us.
I also loved the fact that Mr. Paul always respected our opinions, and never made us feel stupid when we didn’t understand something. He was always very encouraging and willing to keep explaining until we got it.

I highly recommend him to anyone interested in extra lessons. He is definitely worth it!

There are many ways to cultivate your writing skills whether it's visual, kinesthetic, or auditory. Let's find out which way works best for you!

Most schools do not offer the flexibility in learning styles necessary for you to find your ideal way of processing new information, whether it be visual, auditorial, kinesthetic, memetic, right brain/left brain, etc.

That's why I'm here! I pride myself on working with each individual student on the subtle ways that they learn and form healthy habits. If you have any questions about my teaching styles or methods please ask!

A little more about me:

I have earned my Creative Writing Bachelors Degree from Louisiana State University which boasts one of the top Creative Writing Programs in the country! I studied Short Story Writing as well as Poetry Writing with teachers who have been published by Norton Anthology's for decades! Let's learn how to improve your writing together!

About Grant
Hello!

My name is Grant and I’ve been helping students grow for almost 10 years now! How time flies! I started playing music at the age of 9 and have been in love with it ever since, staying active in my local music scene as an instructor, performer, manager, and booking agent. I have also earned a degree in Creative Writing from Louisiana State University for all of the students wishing improve their writing skills!

In addition to freelance work, (weddings, jazz brunch gigs, etc.) I am the lead guitarist for the Funk/R&B band Water Seed and the soul project RetroFit. I attended Indiana University for jazz guitar and have studied under jazz greats Dan Miller, Corey Christiansen, and Oteil Burbridge.

I pride myself in taking a students learning needs and using that as my basis for their specific lesson plan, always on a case-by-c
ase basis, tailored to each individual student. Everyone is at a different waypoint on their path so why would I use a predetermined formula to try and help them, am I right? I am excited to meet and grow with every single one of you, let's learn to love the life we have and let our studies become radiant!

I teach all kinds of disciplines from guitar, mandolin, banjo, and clarinet, to creative writing, meditation, and even astrology. If you have any questions about my teaching methods, skill level in a certain discipline, or anything thing you can think of I would be more than happy to answer you!

Musically yours,
Grant

Throughout my 15 years in school, I've had challenging English and writing teachers. Their rigorous lessons have helped me become an excellent writer with exceptional proofreading skills. When writing with me, I'll show you your mistakes and the best ways to avoid them in the future.

About Morgan
My friends and family often call me a professional student. I completed my associate degree within my last two years of high school through dual enrollment. Throughout my school years, I've had many experiences with professional tutors and I paid attention to how they helped me learn. I've been able to take what was learned in the support centers and tutor my fellow classmates at a pace best for them. Now I would love to keep sharing my knowledge. If given the chance, I will do everything within my abilities to better the students under my care.

I love to learn and if I can pass on my hunger for knowledge to others, that would make me proud. Having an excitement like mine can be infectious. If I can get a student fully interested in learning, then a wonderful future will open for him or her. If anything, I'd enjoy being a tutor for the
chance to review my knowledge and give someone a helping hand.

We will first establish what it is the student is hoping to improve upon in their writing, and what types of writing they would like to work on (creative, essays, research papers, thesis writing, etc.). From there we can establish a plan to move forward over the course of our lessons to accomplish what the student would like to accomplish. We can work on homework assignments, research projects, email writing etiquette, cover letters, CVs, etc. Whatever your writing goals are, I would love to help you accomplish them!

About Elisa
Hi, there! My name is Elisa Alfonso and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012 and have loved helping my students learn and/or improve their flute playing, learn/improve their Spanish, and improve their general understanding of music. I went to East Carolina University and earned my BM in Music Performance and a BA in Hispanic Studies in 2016. I strive to make lessons both a fun and productive experience for students, and will use the educational goals that the student identifies to structure custom lesson plans for that student. I strongly believe in explaining the reasoning behind activities so students understand the goals that they are working towards in our lessons, and I am passionate about helping my students succeed. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

During my four years as an undergraduate at GWU, I also wrote for my college newspaper, “The GW Hatchet” as a news reporter writing about articles of interest in the Washington, DC area. Also, when I lived in Istanbul, Turkey, I was a regular contributor to “Yabangee”, an online magazine for the local expatriate community. I wrote about restaurants, concerts, and other cultural events in the ...
