About Scott
Scott D. was born in Arlington Heights, Illinois in 1967. He expressed a keen interest in music at an early age, and subsequently, began his studies with the clarinet, and percussion while performing in the school band. A short time after that, he decided guitar was going to be his instrument of choice, and began formal studies with blues man, Don Brown. After that, Scott moved on to study with session ace, Gary Blume. By the time we was 18, he began studies for what would be the first of his two degrees, at William Rainey Harper College. There he was mentored in both classical and jazz guitar under well known session player, and composer, Steven Suvada, and later continued with David Sussman, of the Lyric Opera in Chicago.

That year Scott went to Northern Illinois University to continue his studies for a second degree in Music
. There he studied under Fareed Haque, of Pangaea records, again obtaining both jazz and classical training. While at NIU, Scott took part in numerous jazz combos who performed extensively in the area. He has also had solo and mixed recitals at Harper, NIU and various other Chicagoland locations where he performed such pieces as: Heitor Villa Lobos’ Preludes # 1, 3 and 4, Mauro Giuliani's Grand Sonata Op. 25 for violin and guitar, and Antonio Vivaldi's Concerto in D Major for 2 violin Liuto e Basso Continuo, Allegro Giusto, Largo, Allegretto.

On the more contemporary side he turned his attention to virtuoso guitar innovators, performing the works: Trademark, by Eric Johnson, Always With Me, Always With You, by Joe Satriani, Over My Head, by Douglas T. Pinnick, Ty Tabor, and Terry W Gaskill, Variations on a Theme of Van Halen, arranged by Scott and Tom Hapeman, as well as Scott’s original compositions, Nowhere Fast and Flight of The Monkey!

Scott played in many important master classes including the popular duo The Assad Brothers, and The Washington Guitar Quintet. He was also a member of the guitar ensemble from Harper College that was featured on cable television on numerous occasions.

Scott has been writing, recording, and performing in every genre imaginable for more than 20 years. He began in his teens performing in cover bands, then in college he founded a self titled fusion based instrumental trio. Later he joined the groups Equinox, The Bulletproof Babies and The Liberty Hounds. He is now writing, recording, and producing original compositions in his home studio, as well as actively performing classical guitar recitals and private events.

Scott has been teaching guitar, bass, drums, piano, and vocals for over 20 years at his private studio, Strings and Things, as well as at such locations as: Northern Illinois University, Village Music in Buffalo Grove, Beautiful Music, Music and Arts Center in Naperville, and Austin Music. He has taught classes from 2 students up to as many as 17 students at the Elk Grove Village, Palatine, Arlington Heights, Mount Prospect, Lisle and Prospect Heights Park Districts. He has developed innovative methods for learning sight reading, chord structure, harmony, voice leading, key signatures, scales and modes, aural skills, theory/composition and technique through learning the music you like to listen to, right from the CD in the actual lesson! His preferred techniques include Mel Bay methods for guitar, and chord diagram books, Segovia's diatonic major and minor scales, Segovia/Ricordi editions of Carcassi Op. 6 No. 25, and Fernando Sors 20 studies, Giuliani’s 120 right hand studies and Christopher Parkening methods. In addition, he prefers to use the Batersby drum methods, Mel Bay bass methods, and Alfred’s piano library.

Scott is available immediately for instruction in guitar, bass, drums, vocals and piano, Mondays, Tuesdays, or Wednesdays. Other days of the week can be arranged if needed.

*** Lesson Details ***

It's easy to say that Scott knows what he's talking about, he has plenty of experience and does a great job breaking things down to a simpler form. I've enjoyed my first month's classes and look forward to gaining a repertoire with him.

About Mya Mya Seinn
Hello there!

My name is Mya and I am a very patient instructor and understand that students learn at a different pace, after all everyone is an individual!

I am not available for new students now. Availability changes every week and please contact me for availability.

I received my degree in Geology from Yangon University in Yangon, Burma in 1993. After I moved to New York City in 2005, I earned a M.A. (Geology) from The City College of New York in 2010. I learned crocheting and sewing from my mother. I also took a bauble, bangle and bead string class, Draping I and II classes, and pattern making I and II classes from Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City.

I’ve been teaching private sewing lesson (since 1998), beading and pearl knotting lesson (since 2009), and Burmese language (since 2014) and I have loved he
lping my students.
Although trained in standard teaching methods, I developed my own method to fulfill my students’ needs.

I am looking forward to helping new students to achieve their goals!

My first class with Mya Mya was excellent. I had taken a class prior to this and was not feeling confident about my abilities until I met Mya Mya. If you're thinking about sewing and need help. I would encourage you to meet with an instructor first one-on-one before taking a class or online training. The instructor and can help guide you better. I'm so glad I learned about this instructor. You will not be disappointed.

About Naomi
I was originally born in Cincinnati, Ohio in a large family (youngest of nine kids), and we all attended Catholic schools... this is where I started learning Spanish. I have studied it (and English Literature) for many years, then eventually won a scholarship to study/travel in Mexico for six months. I returned from Mexico fluent, graduated from college with honors in language and Humanities, then decided to go live in Washington, DC to use that language. I got into corporate training, working 10 years at Fannie Mae as I traveled to 38 of the 50 states to help them train banks on their financial systems. I later began working in healthcare, and got certified as an interpreter AND as an Instructional Designer. I have designed educational programs ever since at hospitals, schools, educational centers, retail organizations, and with hig
her education (now at GWU). My hobbies include speaking Spanish, swimming, listening to jazz, playing with my daughter and my beagle.

If you are looking for a Spanish teacher look no further! Naomi is a very skilled and phenomenal teacher. I have taken her class for the last 10 months and I truly can see the progress I have made with her teaching style. She not only has set lessons from the book, but she will bring real-world examples such as food, newspapers, and music! I recently traveled to the Dominican Republic and I was amazed at how easily I was able to hold a conversation. The people there let me know that my Spanish was very good. It was definitely a compliment for me. I believe that a student is only as good as their teacher. Naomi is the right teacher!

Mr. Slate was not my first ASL instructor, but he did reinforce key aspects of ASL that made my foundation solid. He really takes the time to make sure each student is learning and try’s to figure out the best way to teach in order for the student to succeed. Thanks to Mr. Slate I was able to discover my passion for ASL.

Hi there! My name is Nick and I've been helping students achieve their classroom goals since 2008. As a computer engineering major at the University of Central Florida I've seen my fair share of mathematics and know a ton of tips and tricks that will enable you to learn rather than memorize material. In my tutor sessions I like to ask my students a lot of questions, this helps students absorb the material we are going over as well as give them confidence when answering questions. I'm a fun, dedicated, and hard working person that will help you meet your goals and I'm looking forward to working with you.

About Josh
I'm a researcher with 8 years of tutoring experience and spent a gap year directing an after-school tutoring program for at-risk youth. Over the years I've tutored dozens of students (in subjects ranging from biology, math, and earth science to English writing, SAT prep, and statistics) and have yet to come across someone whose grades did not significantly improve after our time working together. I'm more than happy to provide references to anyone looking to hear more about my past work.

I'm passionate about tutoring because I believe every student has the potential to thrive in an academic environment. Unfortunately, many students aren't taught in way that helps them achieve conceptual mastery or don't get enough individual attention in the classroom. That's why I believe in the power of the personal, individualized tutoring relationshi
p. When a tutor, I focus on a few things:

1) Concept Mastery - I work to help students understand that it's not enough to just understand how to solve a problem, but that you also need to understand why that solution works. If you have a deep conceptual mastery over the material, you'll be able to solve new kinds of problems with those same skills, even if you haven't encountered a problem like it before.

2) Academic Confidence – I’m always surprised by the number of students that I work with who honestly believe they aren’t smart or capable enough to succeed in school. So, part of my job as a tutor is to help those students understand that hard work and confidence are the key to success, so matter how difficult they find the work initially.

3) Love of Learning – This is perhaps the most important element to me. My favorite teachers were not the ones who managed to cram the most amount of information in my head, but those who helped me be excited about the subjects they taught. As a tutor, I work with students to develop excitement about the subject matter and a love of learning more generally.

Finally, here’s a bit more information about me. Currently, I'm a public health researcher at a large non-profit, and specialize in systematic reviews and project evaluation. I studied Sociology and Public Policy at UNC Chapel Hill. I graduated summa cum laude and received a Chancellor's award for excellence in my field of study. In the new few years, I plan to go back for a PhD in clinical psychology. I look forward to working with you or your student!

Josh was a very patient and a hands on tutor. He took time to get to know each student in order to better assist them personally. He had good boundaries with the students and was able to stay professional while being able to have fun with them. We saw personal gains based on the VA SOL test scores at the end of the school year after his assistance.

Both of my sons went from F’s to B’s with Josh’s help. We had all pretty much given up that they would be able to get good grades in math. We were just hoping Josh could get them to pass. We can’t say enough about Josh’s clear, understandable and relevant guidance. Yes, they got great grades, but he also made them feel confident in their abilities to do the work. He is wonderful!

About Ali
I'm new to TakeLessons but have nearly a decade of experience in tutoring and mentoring students. I have Bachelor's of Science degrees in Bioengineering and Biology and a PhD in Applied Biomedical Engineering. I have applied my degrees extensively as a biomedical researcher with 17 peer-reviewed publications, over 50 conference abstracts, and three patents. After completing my post-doctoral training at the Cleveland Clinic, I began medical school at Georgetown University School of Medicine, where I am currently a medical student.

When I first started college, I was in your shoes. Having to learn advanced-level biology (e.g. molecular biology, human genetics, etc), mathematics (e.g. calculus I-IV, differential equations, etc) and engineering (e.g. fluid dynamics, mechanics of materials, biomedical signal processing, etc) seemed daunting.
However, I soon learned that topics that appear intimidating at first are actually fairly simple to learn once they've been broken down. My goal is to not only help you learn the material at hand but to teach you how to apply various techniques to learning even the most complex of subjects with a sense of confidence and ease. Regardless how advanced or basic the material, I'm certain I can teach you and that you can learn it.

I look forward to helping you achieve the success that you desire!
