About Brenda

Hello, my name is Brenda! It is nice to meet you.

I have been teaching private lessons for over a decade, and hold two music degrees and two teaching certifications in music (NJ) and ESL (international). I obtained my B.M. in Music Education from William Paterson University where I was a voice major and flute/piano double minor, and obtained my Masters of Music in Performance with the Opera Institute at Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University.

Although I do work with students of all ages, I specialize in working with younger children and retired adults!

I primarily teach voice, flute, piano, music theory and history and have over 10 years of experience teaching in both individual and group settings. I also work on audition and performance preparation, do speech/accent work and more. I am constantly studying different

teaching methods so I can develop a custom program that best fits your learning styles and incorporates what you already know, with what you will need to learn in order to achieve your goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether you want to play flute, sing, act, or learn to play piano, I am here to help you become the best musician you can be. Classically trained, I also work with the styles of musical theatre, pop, rock, and jazz. I can teach you the proper techniques, posture, and breathing necessary to perform to the best of your ability and teach you how to utilize your full lung capacity to extend phrasing length and dynamic range. I will also help you learn to read and write music. Together, we will keep a log to track your progress lesson to lesson. This will also help you keep a record of the steps you are taking to obtain and achieve your goals and dreams.

*** Specialties ***
Young and beginner students.
Senior & Retired students
Students with special needs.
Performance techniques.
Audition preparation
Speech techniques (public speaking/voice-overs, etc.)

I am a 62 year old person who had previously studied Spanish using Rosetta Stone and Duolingo. I started taking lessons with Georgina several years ago to provide a regular opportunity to engage in Spanish conversation. Our lessons have been free-flowing and she introduced me to a number of books written in Spanish which were not only helpful in further developing my knowledge of Spanish but were culturally enlightening as well. Georgina is easy to engage, a delightful person to know and an excellent instructor.

I believe students learn English faster and more in-depth, when they are having fun.
I enjoy tailoring the exercises and activities to my student's interests and focus on improving their speaking, listening, writing,and reading skills.
There are many approaches and methods out there to teach English. I believe it's beneficial to introduce them all. Not only does this add variety but can help us discover an approach or method that really clicks with the way you learn.
The class is full-immerison, meaning from start to finish we communicate in English. This is the best way to learn English; even if you don't know any English, we will communicate only in English ( don't worry- just as a child learns a language, we will use photos, videos, music and other media to aid in learning. This will make learning English easy)
I am here for you. Whatever goals you have, we can accomplish them together.

I understand that each one of us learns in different ways. My lessons are build around you. I take in acco

unt your interests and how you learn and plan accordingly.

I look forward to working with you. Happy Learning.

Sonia is so very kind to my son. He has not had a good expereince in school with learning how to read. She took his sour attitude and turned it around to something sweet. Now I have a child that loves coming to her sessions. He even asks to come on Saturdays. His grade levels have risen on the state assessments from a 1.2 to 3.1 in less than 6 months.

Daria
Sonia has instructed my daughter since 2016. My daughter has an IEP for reading and the school was not helping her improve her reading skills to grade level. In our state if one does not pass the end of grade assessment in reading, you are retained in that grade level. Sonia was able to assit my daughter in being promted to the next grade. She helped my daughter bring her scores up 2 grade levels in 1 year. I call that success!

My son has received instruction from Sonia for 4 years. She is ever so patient, kind, and friendly. She makes learning a boring subject like math fun. My son's math anxiety has lessened due to her methods and I hope she can continue working with him in the future.

"Ronald is a such amazing teacher. He teaches with such pasion because he really likes what he does. We're learning from each other, i teach him Spanish an
d he teaches me English! Enjoy and improve your english with him, you will never regret picking him as your teacher."

"I've chosen Staphanie as my teacher, because I needed someone who will really quickly help me make my English accent better. I took the fact that she is a
lso a musician as a big advantage as I assumed she'll be able to hear all the false accentuation I make. In fact, if you want to work on your English skills, it's the best combination of skills.
It was really clever decision. Stephanie is able to explain things clearly and fast. Step by step, syllable by syllable, trains student how to speak properly. If you're ready to do your homework and want to see progress fast, Stephanie is perfect person to work with. And she is very kind, too!"

"A very good teacher, taught us not only English but also valuable skills to study in America."

"Joy is by far the world's greatest ESL teacher.

She was my first ESL teacher when I was in college. She had extensive experience with foreign students
and knew how to apply her professional teaching skills to individual students to maximize each students' potential abilities by repeatedly correcting mistakes in detail.
She handed out her own material every week and her material is by far the essence of English for ESL students. Once I went through her materials with her for about a year, my English has improved incredibly.
She is open mind and patient so do not rush students to get anxiety. She is my lifetime companion and the best teacher.
I am confident to recommend her. Do not miss the chance of a lifetime to meet the greatest English teacher."
