My seven year old boy just finished online summer reading instruction with Kelly. And wow...what a difference those 3 months made. This was our first experience with online tutoring and Kelly made it an extremely positive one. Aidan went from reading at a level D to a level H in just a few short months. Not only that, he is now reading independently and enthusiastically! No longer does reading seem a chore. I would highly recommend Kelly to anyone looking for reading instruction. She was wonderful and it was certainly money well spent.

Kelly has been an absolute blast to work with. I have had 4 different tutors through take lessons and none of them compare. By meeting once a week, my Spanish speaking skills have increased tremendously. She designs classes around my desired goals and always provides extra study material to complete throughout the week. Kelly's positive attitude and love for teaching has been an enormous factor in my decision to continue working with her. Because of her background in education she has proven to be one of the best. I highly recommend Kelly for anyone who wishes to learn Spanish.

About Susan
Acting – I have taught all kinds of acting, including Audition Skills, Shakespeare, Stage, Film & TV, Dramatic, Comedic, whatever. I also have quite a bit of experience performing in all those arenas. I have a relationship with one of the best management agencies in the area, so my students get fast-tracked with her.

Voice – Anyone can sing. If you want to and have always thought you couldn't, you will be delighted when I prove you wrong. Training for the voice is pretty much the same, whatever style you are interested in. Then I'll coach you in your chosen style and we'll pick songs you like.

Singing beautifully is not enough. I can't tell you how many times I heard in grad school "beautiful voices are a dime a dozen." I will teach you how to OWN the song. That's what keeps people coming back.

Speaking – Every public spe
aker I know has lost their voice at some point, but not from talking too much. It's because they don't know how to use their voice properly. Learn that, and you need never lose your voice to over-use. That's easy to teach.

Writing – I have been a professional writer and editor for over eight years, with many books, articles, posts, newsletters, etc. to my name. I use – and teach – practical grammar, not just correct grammar. I can also help you make your words more powerful.

I've been taking lessons with Susan Scher for about two months now. I can easily say I've been impressed at how much I've improved. I look forward to lessons every week. I feel that soon enough I'll be able to audition for roles in film and television. If you live in the Baltimore area and are interested in voice acting or any acting in general. Contact her and go, you won't be disappointed.

I did not know what to expect when I signed up to take classes with Susan. I decided to take classes with her for two reasons: Her studio is not far from me and 2, the good reviews left by her clients. All I wanted was to learn the fundamentals and techniques about acting. Susan was excellent and very patient. She offered water in each lesson, which is also very kind. Her interpersonal connection brings a sense of comfort. Her studio is very neat and welcoming. I do not have regrets in my selections and I know you won't be disappointed too.

I highly recommend, the best teacher I’ve had. Responsible! Caring!

I took TOEFL perpetration classes with Henry. He is very knowledgeable and a great teacher. Because of his experience in journalism he has amazing knowledge in writing, reading, speaking, He worked on my general English skills first because I thought I had enough proficiency in English while I didn't, and after some classes he started TOEFL, he definitely knows what area of English I was weak in so, step by step, he lead me in the right direction. He's very responsible and carrying. I got a higher score than I was expecting.

I have been teaching and tutoring ESL for many years now, both in the USA and even abroad. I scored a 5 on both my AP Language and AP Literature exams. I have experience also teaching the SAT Writing section and essay. I also have experience with writing personal statements and résumés.

About Jessica
ACADEMIC BACKGROUND:
I graduated with my Master of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology with Highest Honors at Queens College, which only accepts four percent of applicants. I graduated Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Pittsburgh Honors College on a Full Tuition Honors College Scholarship with a double major in French and Italian Language and Literature. I graduated with a 4.0 GPA. Last year, I scored above the 93rd percentile on my GRE Verbal and Writing sections. In high school, I scored above the 98th percentile on the SAT/ACT Verbal sections. I graduated high school with a 4.0 GPA from all AP and honors classes.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE:
I am a speech-language pathologist with experience teaching children and adults various areas of language. Additionally, I have been tutoring a range of other subjects for over f
ive years. I have worked at the international Berlitz Language School, where I have taught English, French and Italian to children and adults of all levels and all language backgrounds. I also have years of experience teaching SAT classes at test prep companies in New York.

TEACHING APPROACH:
I tailor my lessons to each student I teach and to his or her individual learning styles. I am friendly, patient and not intimidating: three qualities that I personally find important in a tutor. I truly love teaching and meeting new students. I find that I always learn from my students when I teach as well! During our first lesson together, we can discuss your goals and create an academic plan personalized to your needs. I look forward to working with you!

Writing with confidence is the key to success in school and beyond. No assignment is too complex or scary for us to tackle together. We can work on composition, paragraphs, grammar, citations, argumentation, form, audience, and style.

About Mark
I am a professional violist working in the central Illinois region. I've been playing the viola for 21 years, and also am comfortable on the violin as well. I received my Bachelors of Arts from Gustavus Adolphus College in 2004, double majoring in Music Performance (viola) and in Philosophy. Afterwards, I completed my Masters of Music in 2010 at Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois.

I frequently play with the Illinois Symphony Orchestra, Sinfonia da Camera, Peoria Symphony Orchestra, Milliken-Decatur Symphony Orchestra, Danville Symphony Orchestra, and others.

In addition to music, my passions carry over to argumentation, literature, long distance running, and writing. I have a fierce eye for grammar and composition, and love to work with students to better their writing and understanding.

I received my masters in social work from walla walla university in 2012. My thesis was on stress levels of police officers. In addition I have received my bachelors in history, where my paper on Air Cavalry in the Vietnam war won many accolades of my history professors.
My students can expect me to be fair and honest. Just as my professors were with me. A well written papers speaks volumes and I am passionate about mentoring young writers. Hard work and diligence are some of the words that my professors and friends would use to describe me. I will give all my resources to help students reach their potential. In return I expect that students work their best to grow academically.
Thanks

About Leanora
I would characterize myself as a laid back, fun, and energetic individual which has served me well personally and professionally. I began my studies approximately thirty years ago. During that time I studied at three different universities specializing in music performance (Walla Walla University, Columbia Basin College and Eastern Washington University). I received a masters in social work and a Bachelors in history. While social work is a far cry from music performance, I have found that this particular profession has assisted me substantially in providing a safe and nurturing environment to new and advanced students. Being able to relate to children and adults who may be shy or unsure of themselves has worked to my advantage. I am always looking to ameliorate the foundation for strong technique. As a performer and teacher my greatest
satisfaction comes from challenging my students comfort line and watching them grow professionally and artistically.

I currently play with four symphonies, chamber groups and substitute for other symphonies throughout Washington state. Because I have been through so many audition processes I feel as though I have excellent insight into the process. I would be able to assist my students in a process that can possibly be one of the most stressful events of their professional lives.

My string studies began at the age of age of eight with Jim O'Brian (served in Army orchestra). Following graduation from Kamiakin High School in 1998, I was accepted into the University of Iowa's school of music. However, I decided to stay close to home and study at Columbia Basin College. It was there that I met my next professor Robert Burroughs. My other university string professors included Maria Zlateva (graduated from University of Texas at Austin), Dr. Philip Baldwin, and Dr. John Marshall who is currently principal cellist of the Spokane Symphony.

My style of teaching is the Suzuki method or string basics. I was raised on the Suzuki method and have found that it provides an excellent foundation for string players. Many of my students have found this helpful with their technique and music theory. My youngest student participated in a talent show with their orchestra last year. Through her hard work and determination she was able to gain a substantial amount of information prior to entering junior high.

What sets me apart from other teachers is that I am strictly a viola instructor. Many viola teachers list themselves as violinists as well. I believe this has helped me because I understand the physical and mental challenges that "we" violists face on a daily basis. I feel privileged knowing that very few people can read alto clef and play such a beautiful instrument. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, don't hesitate to ask me a question.

To all my violists out there inspire yourselves from the greats; William Primrose, Yuri Bashmet, David Carpenter, and Nigel Kennedy.

Thanks for looking at my bio.
Happy playing :)

I have a B.A in Applied Linguistics and four years of tutoring experience. In high school, I got D's on my first Advanced Placement history and English assignments. I turned my grades around in less than a month, earning the highest marks in my class--I was that student my classmates sneered at for setting the curve!! I think anyone can improve their writing with a bit of practice and a little change in attitude. My writing skills have earned me scholarships, awards, and jobs. I work as a freelance editor on the side and as a paralegal during the week.

About Mariah
If you've ever been sitting at a desk or laptop trying to write an essay and thought "Writing sucks. This is the worst. I'm never going to finish this," then I sympathize. I have had a rigorous writing education, and it has included many ups and downs. I've had papers torn apart (literally and figuratively) in front of me. Writing is often stressful and cause anxiety. I won't lie, I've cried over a lot of papers in my life because I know I'm capable of solid, effective writing--but it takes hard work and a lot of energy. Results are not immediate so it can feel really pointless as times. But when you're writing with the help of someone who understands, who knows that part of the writing process is sometimes to just take a nap and start over in an hour, then it can feel much less daunting.
