My teenager son loves his singing lessons with Kara. He has been going for a couple months and I have noticed a rapid improvement in his singing. I highly recommend Kara she is a great teacher and very friendly. My son is always looking forward to his next lesson, it is the highlight of his week.

I am a college level jazz musician.
My primary instruments are jazz guitar and upright bass.
Growing up I have always wanted to sing but never could find a qualified teacher.

Luckily, after extensive research online for vocal teachers I discovered Kara.
I have been taking lessons with her for a while now and she's wonderful.
I always have many questions for her in my lessons and she always has a knowledgable response.

I feel like I'm progressing and finally learning how to sing properly with someone who knows their stuff.

I would highly recommend studying with her.

I enjoyed our first voice lesson last week. Kara is a gifted music professional with great teaching ability. She has the ability to pick up on things that help facilitate the learning process. Great job!

Best experience! My son who is on 6th grade had to take the SSAT in a short period of time and Chris got him engaged from the first class, not easy for an online class. He was easy to communicate and was open to work with our schedule. Thanks for all the work you did!

Great Algebra tutor! Chris was tutoring my daughter in algebra. He picked up very quickly to see where her weakness is. He is very patient and takes his time in making sure my daughter gets it done. Excellent tutor.

Knowledgable and EXTREMELY patient
Christopher came here to teach me pivot tables which I needed to know for work. I had no knowledge of what they were or did and when he left I had an understanding which I did not think I could achieve in such a short time. The patience he showed was wonderful as I was nervous and he put me at ease which is not an easy task! He also had to figure out what I need to do (in Excel)when I do not completely understand it myself but by the time he left, he understood and I am confident that I can succeed now and it is all because of Christopher!

Private Writing Teacher

I love writing and learning different languages. Writing has been something that helps me de-stress and challenges me to always articulate my thoughts clearly. I have helped high school students on essay assignments, creative writing, and on college essays that eventually helped a couple of them get into their dream schools. If you simply want to improve, I would have prompts and other materials that could help you achieve your goal.

About Sophia

Hi there! I am majoring in mathematical and computational biology at Harvey Mudd College. I love studying the sciences because it's exciting to learn how things work and to logic things out. I love working with others - I have been tutoring students (ranging from elementary school to high school) on various school subjects for about 6 years now.

Music is another huge part of my life: I have been playing the piano for 14 years and the violin for 8 years now. I am currently a violinist in the Pomona College Orchestra. In 2014, I was invited to perform at Carnegie Hall after my participation in the American Fine Arts Festival. In high school, I placed either first or second on solo, duet, and ensemble competitions in various competitions held at places such as Diamond Bar High School and Chapman University. Through these activities, I prac

ticed on persistence and patience. Teaching experience wise, I have taught piano for 3 years before.

Additionally, I enjoy actively participating in my community. In high school, I was really involved in the American Red Cross and Key Club. In college, I am still finding joy in volunteering in different organizations on campus. I also enjoy other activities such as reading, meditation, theater, tennis, rock climbing, and ballroom.

I work with people according to their personality and the way that they learn best. If I were given the opportunity to tutor your student, I would make sure everything is clearly explained because I hate memorizing.

I look forward to sharing my passions with you!

Sophia worked with my daughter during her Junior year of high school. My daughter was really struggling to understand the material and Sophia was a huge help. Sophia broke the lessons down and was able to instruct my daughter in a way that she could comprehend. Her grade improved by one letter which was wonderful. We truly appreciated Sophia's help.

Three years experienced in Credit Repair. I currently own a Credit Repair Business, where I create and send dispute letters to the credit bureaus! My clients ask me all the time to teach them how to do it themselves and I'm more than happy to. I get really creative with ALL my dispute letters! I will teach you what to say on your letter, how to write/type it. I provide credit education and goal worksheets! Let's get started!

About Shakirah

I am a young Entrepreneur. I'm a Credit Specialist and I help a lot of people from all walks of life to better themselves. I am very passionate about what I do because I know personally what having a bad credit score or being in debt feels like. There are a lot of people in my generation that think credit is absolutely worthless, until I tell them that I own a house and I'm only 21 years old. I don't say this to brag, I say it to be a motivator because if I can do it, you can too.

Private Writing Teacher

Experienced and passionate college teacher of 15 years, specializing in writing, reading and critical thinking. Lessons are customized to the needs/goals of each student. I can teach all levels from high school to college to adult writers.

About Mike

I am a Senior Lecturer at the University of Maryland, College Park. I received my Ph.D. in literature from the University of Arizona, my M.A. from George Mason University and my B.A. from James Madison University.

My students can expect to improve week to week in their writing, reading and critical thinking skills. Every student has a unique learning style; I teach students to discover their own best processes and apply fundamental techniques in order to produce their best work.

While I teach full time at the college level, I tutor students of all ages and experience levels. I have taught composition, literature, film and professional writing at the University of Arizona, James Madison University, Mary Washington University, Marymount University and now at the University of Maryland, College Park.

I am a passionate teacher and care dee

ply about writing, reading and critical thinking. I am pursuing private tutoring opportunities selflessly in order to improve the writing, reading and critical thinking skills of others, and selfishly in order to earn some supplemental income now that my wife and I have had our first child (Higher Ed institutions pay teachers less than you might think). So, I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better writer, reader and critical thinker.

"nothing but good things to say about melisa very help full person to work with I hope we can still do businesses together..."
Julie
"As an adult student who has struggled with creative writing, Larry has been instrumental in opening a whole new world of self expression for me. I highly
recommend him for any student who wishes to either grasp fundamental skills or for the one who simply wishes to polish their own.

Additionally Larry has been able to introduce me to Shakespeare, a life long interest of mine... one which has always frustrated me do to my lack of understanding, in a non threatening, non stressful way.

Thank you Larry."

"My son enjoys writing lessons with Steve and has improved writing skills just after 3-4 sessions with Steve. Before he used to hate doing writing at home
but now he likes it which is a big change."

"Of the different instructors I have collaborated with, Sarah is by far one of the instructors who has most consciously worked to make sure that her course
design met the goals and learning outcomes of the curricula. From the first day I met her, she already had a syllabus design that met any suggestions I might make from my previous years' experience teaching courses in our program. I know she worked actively with others in the program in designing her materials, and she took all their comments to heart, building her syllabus around their recommendations for achieving learning outcomes.
In addition to creating assignments that clearly and usefully supported the goals of the program, Sarah incorporated the community contributions elements of the program, as well. She invited speakers from the campus community and the broader community. The students responded positively to all of these speakers, and they actively incorporated the ideas they learned from them in their work for the course.
The students' final presentations are the best indication of how successful Sarah's course was. The students were asked to use their academic research paper to create a policy paper or deliverable to a stakeholder of the students' choosing. The students created such fantastic presentations, that some of them could perhaps have been sent to the intended stakeholder--if we had the right contacts--with only minor revisions. The final presentations indicated that they achieved the learning outcomes of the course."
