About Elisa
I am a patient and creative pianist who loves music and loves teaching. I have been blessed with many varied musical experiences that has ultimately enhanced my skills as a musician and a piano instructor.
My musical training began at an early age, four years, which eventually led to a Bachelor's Degree in Music from the University of California, Riverside. Along with my classically-trained studies, I had the opportunity to travel to several countries to study the music of many cultures. This experience further enhanced my musical knowledge and musicianship skills.
I have studied and worked as a music therapist and a ballet music accompanist. Although I have enjoyed these and is grateful for these experiences, nothing can compare to my love of teaching piano. I have taught piano to adults and children, beginning skill levels through ad
vanced skill levels.
As you or your child's instructor, I will do my very best to cultivate a love and appreciation for music and the arts. I look forward to working with you.
Elisa

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that each lesson should be enjoyable and bring out a sense of accomplishment in each student. I work with all ages and skill levels. I am skilled at teaching many types of music which include: Classical European Music and its many genres and pop music of all eras. I am also trained in working with people with special needs.
I believe in consistent, regular practice. Each lesson is tailored to fit each student. If you are a beginning student, I will teach you to the basic skills of piano music, such as hand placement, scales, reading music, etc. If you are an intermediate through advanced-skilled student, I will work on enhancing what you already know and work on higher-leveled music. In addition, with all of my students, I would also add to my lessons special goals for yourself that you may have.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have amassed a collection of music books that would be relevant in teaching students of various skill levels. I expect my students to provide a piano if I will travel to their home.

*** Specialties ***
I was formally trained in the Suzuki Method as a child, however, I am adept at teaching almost any style of music.

About Aria
I hold a doctorate degree in Music and specialize in teaching classical music from the Renaissance period, Baroque, classical periods, as well as pop and broadway. I teach all voice types, with expertise in mezzo soprano and countertenor literature, but vast knowledge in all. I use proven vocal techniques along side vocal yoga practices to help people to find their true, natural voice.

I have considerable experience training those with disabilities, mental illnesses, and performance anxiety. I teach holistically, believing the voice to be an instrument inseparable from the person. With all students we endeavor to sing healthily, preserving voices for longevity, and to meet whatever goals the students desire. I am studied in the Bel Canto, Lamberti, and Concone technique and have successfully prepared many students for auditions, cont
ests, festivals, and self confidence for life. The techniques for singing that I use are to create a sound, healthy, and free voice. Hope to study along side you!

Dr Aria is a wonderful teacher. She is knowledgeable of course, but even more importantly Aria is a gentle, understanding, and talented teacher. I have enjoyed every moment with her and have definitely improved my vocal skills. By the way, I am myself an experienced music teachet and have never had a better teacher than Dr Aria. As I’ve said, some teach because that’s what they do, but Aria teaches because that is who she is.

About Daniel
I'm a graduate of UCLA School of Engineering with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering. I have a passion for explaining how the physical world works through math and physics along with 10 years of tutoring experience in those subjects, test prep, and mentorship programs. The teaching strategy I believe in emphasizes subject fundamentals, a powerful and necessary tool for higher problem solving. This strategy has proven effective regardless of the student's educational background or mental ability. Besides being knowledgeable, I am motivating, caring, and patient in guiding your student to academic success!

Executive Functioning is a separate realm that tutoring can assist in. It deals with cognitive processes including organization, time management, and study skills. Much of the difficulty students face in academic subjects can be attribute
d to the lack of executive functioning. They either cannot keep up with the pace and workload that advanced courses demand or haven't figured out the best way to study for themselves. I am able to assess a student's shortcomings and formulate a plan for higher achievement.

Math:
• Elementary • Pre-Algebra • Algebra 1 & 2 • Geometry • Pre-Calculus
• Trigonometry • AP Calculus • Applied/Business Calculus • Differential Equations

Physics:
• AP Physics 1 & 2 • College Physics

Test Prep:
• SAT I & II • ACT • ISEE • SSAT • HSPT • GRE • TEAS and more

Computers:
• MS Word • Excel • PowerPoint • Outlook • Adobe Acrobat • Adobe Reader • Google Drive • Skype • General Windows/MAC

Mentorship:
• Grade Monitoring • Teacher Collaboration

Executive Functioning:
• Organization • Time Management • Study Skills • Checking Work

• Completely turned around achievement and self-confidence of mentored students
• Track record of student improvement particularly in math and physics

*Cancellation Policy: At least 24 hours notice or charged for full session

About Madison
I am a student at Jacksonville University working on my Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering. I aim to work as a Bioengineer in the future, as I am passionate about topics in mathematics and science. That being said, I am also a strong supporter of education! I discovered my passion for passing my knowledge to others about three years ago, helping to clear up confusion, and the stress that comes with it, of students in varying grade-levels (elementary-college). My teaching style is unique as I strive to tailor it to the needs, personality, prior knowledge, and learning style of each student. With lessons that are completely personalized, I have proven to improve the grades and outlook on the subject of every student I have teached thus far. For a judgement-free learning zone, and a tutor who is driven by finding the teaching method
that “clicks” for you, please contact me and we can get started!

About Lauryn
My name is Lauryn (with a y, yes!) and public speaking is my passion. Most people think that I'm crazy when I tell them that, but it's true! I used to be afraid to get up and speak in front of a classroom full of my peers, but today I can confidently say that I have spoken in front of thousands of people with ease. The ability to communicate effectively is an important one. Public speaking abilities are one of the top qualities that employers look for in a candidate yet it still remains the number one fear that people have (fear of public speaking is even rated higher than the fear of death!) I believe that schools are not doing enough to instill these skills in their students. I am committed to teaching others how to become confident in their speaking abilities while having some fun along the way.

About Gabrielle
Bonjour tout le monde! Je m'appelle Gabrielle

If you want to learn French, you're reading the right bio! My name is Gabrielle and I've been studying French since I was 12 years old. I am now 22 years old. I also have a bachelors degree in French from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. I studied abroad in France for three months at the Université de Lyon 2 and I will be teaching in France this September.

Enough about me, let me ask you a question? Do you disagree with the approach of "sit and get" when it comes to learning? Do you want to learn and live (your best life)? Well, look no further! My lessons aim to make the process enjoyable by learning more than just the grammatical structure of the language. We will take a look at French culture, music, cuisine, history etc. This experience will be interactive. For example, playing g
ames to strengthen vocabulary or watching a video and then discussing in an impromptu manner about the topic. The goal is for you to learn French, but who says it can't be fun along the way.

I would help you develop critical thinking skills and get you involved in your own learning. I would
reduce your anxiety of being in a math cla
ss and ease your nerves during exams. I would help strengthen your ability to learn math (and other things) on your own as well as build the your confidence with math and other seemingly difficult subjects. Also assist you in increasing exam performance and retention of material learned. I would
provide you with a deeper understanding of the material.

It is my job to equip you with the tools you will need in order to be a successful Algebra math student. All I ask from you is to stay focused by having a positive attitude, a willingness to work, study, and learn so that we may achieve “POSITIVE RESULTS”. In addition, my desire as an educator is to help you meet your fullest potential. I am giving you the tools to become successful in life, to believe and love yourself.

I participate in professional development workshops, team building and constantly striving to be the “BEST” educator by being a Life-Long Learner so I can help you have a better chance at being successful during your math career. This partnership between home and Takelessons can provide you with a wealth of learning opportunities that will last a lifetime. I look forward to meeting you.
