About Julie
I am passionate about Music and Music Education. It's rewarding for me to watch my students develop in their musical skill and enjoy making music more and more. My students range from the very young (5 years old) to school age children, to teens, and adults. My students benefit from my expertise in teaching Vocal and Piano music, my knowledge of Music Theory, and my encouraging teaching style. I have been involved in making music since I was a young child, and I have been teaching private students since I was a Music major at the University of Florida in 1982 when a fellow college student asked me to teach her voice lessons. I have a Music Education degree from the University of Florida; my major instrument was Voice, my minor was Piano. I taught as a public school music educator in Florida, California, and Tennessee between the years
of 1983 to 1997. I taught private students after school in my classroom while I was a public school teacher, and from my home since 1997. My post-graduate continuing professional education includes Tennessee Arts Academy at Belmont University, Kodaly Pedagogy and Solfege Level 1 (vocal teaching techniques, do-re-mi, ear training), Orff-Schulwerk Music for Children Level 1 certification, Yamaha M.I.E. (Music In Education) Piano Lab certification. My professionalism and expertise are at your service. I will work together with you to insure an enjoyable and informative learning experience.

*** Lesson Details ***
A typical lesson in my studio would begin with a brief question/answer time with the student to learn how their week has gone, and how their music practice is progressing.

For PIANO LESSONS we begin with Technique including scales and dexterity exercises, then we play from the Lesson book and a Recital selection. I typically let the student play through the pieces they have prepared without interruption, then I call attention to corrections that need to be made, I demonstrate the correction, and then ask the student to play the piece again. After that we go over the Theory assignments, and do Ear Training exercises. I am comfortable teaching from a variety of different methods courses. The methods course is chosen according to the student's interest. I never require a piano student to continue using books that are not inspiring. There so many methods courses available, that a student may always be able to have methods books they LOVE.

In my SINGING LESSONS we also begin with a recap of the student's week. Then we continue with Warm Up exercises to prepare the student's voice for the lesson. Then we study Sight Singing and Solfege Singing (do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-ti-do) to increase the student's listening skills. After that the student sings their selections. Like I do in Piano lessons, I listen to the pieces they have prepared without interruption, then I call attention to corrections that need to be made, I demonstrate the correction, and then ask the student to sing the piece again. I am comfortable teaching many styles of vocal music including classical, Broadway, pop, rock, and Christian.

For MUSIC THEORY lessons, the study material is chosen according to the student's interest and age. Topics include notation, chord structure, chord progression, melodic structure, and harmony. I also incorporate Music Listening in the Music Theory lesson in order to learn from the masters in many styles of music. My Music Theory students will also have the opportunity to develop composition and songwriting skills if they desire.

My teaching style is structured and friendly, keeping the student's goals and interests at the forefront. I enjoy motivating students to reach their highest potential.
After 3 to 6 months in my studio my students will see improvement in their musical technique, ear training, music reading, notation, and knowledge. They will be preparing recital pieces for an upcoming performance. I provide two recital opportunities a year: in December, and in May. Most importantly, the student's love and appreciation of music will be growing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
PIANO lessons in Living Room: piano near front entryway, couch, loveseat, over-sized chair, dining room table, open space, end table with chair, parents may sit in on lesson.

SINGING lessons in Recording Studio: keyboard, recording equipment, desk, 2 chairs, music stand, microphone, private room. Parents may wait in adjacent rec room or sit in on lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson books, the students should provide their instrument.

I do have a mobile keyboard to bring for SINGING lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Kodaly Pedagogy and Solfege Level 1

Orff-Schulwerk Music for Children Level 1 certification

Yamaha M.I.E. (Music In Education) Lab certified instructor

About Emily
Howdy! I have an undergraduate degree in Classics and an MA in ancient history, and I have been teaching/tutoring since 2009. I know first-hand how much hard work can achieve, but my experience in teaching has also taught me that the work doesn't have to be so hard when a student has experienced, dedicated help. That's what I'm here for! I have done both paid and volunteer teaching, and I have worked both for myself and for a university. I have taught a wide range of students - ADD students, injured students unable to attend normal classes, struggling students - in a variety of environments. I have experience teaching to groups and individuals; face-to-face, chat-room style, and via video conferencing. I teach language because I have a passion for it, and my goal with my students, whether they are learning a new language or furthering the
ir native English skills, is always to help them achieve their own language learning goals. I look forward to helping you achieve yours!

About Madeleine
Hello! Bonjour ! Je m'appelle Madeleine and I am a bilingual tutor and teacher with more than 8 years' experience in education.

As a language teacher, I have taught both French to American students and English to French students in the primary and secondary classrooms. I have also tutored both languages in person and online to high school students, college majors, and adults of all skill levels.

As a 2014 graduate of the University of Maryland in linguistics and French, I have a strong academic background in the grammar and literature. Having lived in France, I also have cultural experience and real-world exposure to the language.

With my near-native fluency in French, I can help you master complex grammar, expand relevant vocabulary, and practice real-world conversational skills, learning helpful cultural insights along the w
ay.

I love helping students realize their potential and reach their personal or professional goals in their second language, so please don't hesitate to contact me to get started on your French journey.

I look forward to meeting and working with you! À bientôt !

Therefore, please drop me a message and let's discuss to make it work for us (what you would like to study and what way will be the best). Thank you for reading my intro.

I am trying to learn Vietnamese because my husband is Vietnamese and speaks Vietnamese with his family. I already knew a little bit but Trang has been helping me increase my vocabulary and learn useful phrases pertaining to my life. The pace of the lesson is not too fast and not too slow. She also does a great job of checking comprehensions with reviews within the lesson. Learning a new language is an active experience and she defitely makes it where your brain has to be active during the lesson! She also has very very gentle and kind personality which makes me feel unafraid to make mistakes! She creates a wonderful learning environment. I have already had 2 lesson with her and I have signed up for 13 more. I’m sure I’ll sign up for even more when those have finished! I look forward to speaking with my in-laws as well as traveling to Vietnam and speaking with the locals:)

About Jiawan
Hi there! This is Jiawan, and I'm here to help you achieve your goal.

A little about me. I was born and raised in Beijing, both my parents are professors. I went to Japan for high school, after that, England. I spent almost five years there, got my Bachelor's and Master's degree. After severn years of living oversea, I went back home in 2010 and worked in a film/animation company for several years. In 2014, I came to the States, finished another Master program at University of Miami. After graduated from UM, I moved to Michigan to live with my boyfriend. Last summer, we just got married. Right now, I’m working as s freelancer for a LA based indie film company. In my spare time, I also write my own stories and scripts.

A little about my Chinese lesson. I started to teach Chinese (both simplified and traditional) as a part-time job si
nce 2007, so I'm pretty confident on it. Student of all ages and levels are welcomed. One thing I would like to point out is unless you have required textbook, I tend not to use any existing learning materials as they always turn out rather boring and disappointing and so out of date. The first session will just be we get to know each other and discuss your goal (and it will be free), then I will design each session and make materials by myself.

A little about my Math lesson. I don't believe that Asian people are better at Math, but I do agree that we have some unique ways to master basic Math, which may make Math easier for grade school student.

A little about my writing lesson. As an international student, I graduated from my bachelor's program with a GPA 3.5, my first master's program with a GPA 3.8, and my second master's program with a GPA 4.0. Academic writing can be tricky, especially for those international students who do not have any experience before. I will show you the rules of academic writing, and you will find out that you don't need a perfect English to get an A for your essay.

A little about my college admissions lesson. To apply for a program is to make yourself different from other candidates and suitable for the program. I did my undergraduate and postgraduate application all by myself, and got accepted by my first choice school. With a little bit luck, let's knock your dream school's door open together.

A little about my IELTS prep class. IELTS is a language level test for non-native English speakers, so to get a higher score, a good foundation is necessary. Also, you need test taking skills and proper trainings to master it. That is why I'm here to help.

Thanks for reading this. If there's anything I could help, please don't hesitate to contact me. Have a nice day!

About Emma
I was born and lived in China for over 25 years before I moved to the U.S., fluent in both languages and have experience teaching at a professional Chinese school for young students and adults, which I've learned to make teaching more interesting by using games and simple writing exercises.

I have tutored a lot of students and helped them improve their Chinese as well as my son. To correct their pronunciation, writing and know lots of Chinese characters. And I'll assess your current Chinese level and provide proper advice and materials. I will match your lesson plan according to your level and interest. Also, I will continuously monitor course quality to ensure your needs are being met.

If you're looking for an organized, patient and experienced tutor, please feel free contact me. I will first make some time for you to talk about what I
can do for you. My teaching goal is helping students to speak Chinese better from any level, and be interested in Chinese culture. Very hope I can get this chance!
