*** Lesson Details *** Sheer technique is necessary but insufficient to play an instrument well. Aural skills, that include the study of functional tonality and voice-leading are important factors that impart musicality. This is of great import if the prospective musician wants the audience to truly enjoy his or her performance !
Whether it be the 3 Rs or preparation in the performing arts, a remarkable instructor must go well beyond the subject matter at hand and help imbue the student with a spirit of wonder that, in due time, will foster enthusiasm necessary for excellence.
A child emulates and learns to communicate in his or her mother-tongue through a supporting and nurturing environment. Likewise, a student needs to be sufficiently motivated to embrace learning in a familiar supportive manner.
*** Studio Equipment *** The In-Studio lesson take place in the living room. Driveway parking. No pets.
*** Travel Equipment *** None; I do expect a reasonably good piano / keyboard at a student's home.
*** Specialties *** Traditional and Suzuki-based education. Performance and musicality training is open to all instrumentalists.
*** CD's*** Classical Energy, Triton Sound, TS 8501 Salut D'Amour, Triton Sound, TS 9014 Epiphanies1, The Halford Company
I love to create. The way I'm most comfortable creating is through writing; whether it's a song, a short story, a poem or a script. Writing has always been the bass line in my life; the heartbeat.
Music and film are both passions of mine. I graduated from Berklee College of Music where I studied Songwriting and Music Therapy. I was pushed to my absolute limits lyrically and musically within these majors, and I am so grateful for it now that I'm on my own creative journey.
I have a great deal of experience, but I am also still learning. I think it is very important as a teacher to always be learning, especially through their students. Teaching these lessons is, of course, about progress and advancement - but also about enjoyment, confidence building and positive encouragement.
I am an expert in Biology, biochemistry, cell biology, immunology, microbiology, molecular biology, and life sciences.
I have a graduate degree in Molecular Biology (UC Irvine, Irvine, CA), a masters in Physical Chemistry, and a bachelors in science (India). Do you want to prevent summer slide and use your time to prep for your ACT, SAT and MCAT tests, keep your knowledge of Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry and elementary math abreast? I have helped three students achieve near perfect scores in ACT in the past two years. Helped two student who were failing their class get As and Bs. So what are you waiting for?
Dr. Nupur is the best teacher ever, we feel lucky to have found her at takelessons.
Her background is impeccable and in addition, she is a teacher who cares. She cared about my daughter, her progress (high school, chemistry) and well-being. My daughter's progress in less than 1 month was amazing: she went from 'we're a bit concerned for your grade' to the point she was helping others in class.
Dr. Nupur is the kind of teacher you wish your kids to have. I recommend her highly.

Dr. Pande was punctual and flexible. She worked with my schedule. Her knowledge is encyclopedic. I will highly recommend her.

Hector is very helpful! In chemistry, he knew his information well and was eager in explaining things followed by checking to make sure we understood the lesson. He takes responsibility in teaching and has a very kind personality. I like to study with him.

His passion for the betterment of people and his ability to make complex topics so simplistic truly make him a devoted and effective tutor.

I've known Hector for a few years now, and I haven't met anyone as passionate when it comes to his work.
Hector puts forth 110% towards his work and students to ensure quality material. He is patient, and is more than happy to clarify any questions.
Not only does his passion lies within teaching, but he is continulusly striving to learn new things. He loves to analyze complex sciences and the world around him, and as an outcome he formulates fascinating theories. Not only is a great teacher, but a friend who truly inspires those around him.

I took painting lessons about 10 years ago and haven’t done anything since. I brought a 1/2 finished painting. Maggie was great helping me set up and seeing where I was and what I remembered. Then showed me some techniques to help get me going. I’m looking forward to our next lesson.

Maggie is a talented instructor. Helped me tremendously with oil paint color mixing and matching.

Maggie is an exceptional teacher who has her classroom management skills down to a tee. It’s amazing to watch her command a classroom full of children while remaining sweet and never losing her cool. She was a great mentor and I learned a lot about art education from her!

I am a classically trained pianist and certified elementary school teacher. I graduated from Oakland University with a Bachelors of Music in Piano Performance and Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics..
I believe that every learning experience provides students an opportunity to not only learn a hard skill, like piano and math, but also to learn the soft skills such as time management, discipline and motivation.
My students can expect to improve week to week in their piano or math classes. My goal is not just to teach you how to play piano or to do math. I would like to guide you through the journey of learning and help you explore all the interesting things in music and math.
I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano for 16 years. I can teach students to read music, improve aural sk
ills and pursue classical excellence. I can also help students to prepare for exams and competition.
I am also an elementary school math tutor specialized in the Texas curriculum. I have taught 5th grade for 2 years, and near 90% of my students passed Math STAAR test despite the fact that the school average was in the 50% range. 90% of my students made growth when I was their Math teacher at school. I can tailor our lessons to meet your needs and prepare you for middle school.
Your growth is my source of happiness. Hire me today to embark this wonderful journey!
"Kawin is an awesome tutor. I was taking a Stats class at NYU, and I was struggling a lot. He was able help me understand the concepts. He also taught me h
ow to identify key words that would help me select the correct equations to solve the problems. I don't think I would have passed the class without his help. I got a "B" in the class, and it sure felt like an "A"!"

"Colin's vast knowledge in so many subjects allows him to find unique approaches to teach and tutor. He knows the material so well that he is always able t
o find ways in which to break down the process of understanding the material. Colin will also breakaway from the point at hand if he feels that there might be some basic knowledge that I might not be aware of, but will contribute to my understanding. He also provided me with techniques that have helped me restructure the way I learn. Overall, a great instructor that has helped me come a long way in my ability to learn."
