*** Lesson Details ***
These details change depending on, whether you would like musical training or academic tutoring.
Musical:

Music is fun and the lessons should be as well. When it comes to practice I recommend that students do spend time (1/2-1hour daily) outside of the lessons practicing to ensure that they see results. If you choose to practice only while in the lesson you will get better but it will be at a slower pace.

- Start with quick warm ups (these work to increase students fluidity with their instrument)
- Work technique
- Assign repertoire depending on skill level.
- Work on assigned repertoire
- Work on technical aspect of the pieces.
Your student will learn much more about their capabilities and their instrument as they will learn many aspects of Music Theory.

I teach beginning- advanced piano lessons touching on posture, hand position, rhythm training, sight-reading, expression, and pop/jazz chord charts. If you want to learn how to play songs by ear that you hear on the radio, I can train you how to do that too! Once I feel that you have surpassed my ability to help you grow, I will be happy to pass you on to a more experienced teacher and attend all of your future recitals.

I teach voice beginner-professional, which includes classical repertoire and technique as well as Musical Theatre, Pop, Rock, Standards, Country, RnB,...you name it. The best part is that you will learn to sing in a manner that will not damage your instrument and in fact will work to fortify your instrument.

Academic:
- Start with introduction to the standard.
- Work on problems with material.
- Present new methods to reach a solution.
- Work on all assigned work.
- Work on future work to give the student an academic advantage.

I am a hard working tutor that will bring the joy of the subject to our sessions of tutoring. I am strict at times, however, some of my students have referred to me as mellow. I will strive to bring your student up to speed and surpass even their own expectations. I love my students, and I want to see them succeed.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, Recording equipment etc.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Casio Keyboard Piano, sheet music, and much more equipment as needed.

I really appreciate Luis for the practice he's given me. We worked on lyric analyzation and flow. We focused on speeding up the meter to work harder in performing faster. I have become better with expressing my vocals in a volume where I can sing a long with the music bed. I highly recommend Luis for anyone who is working on improving their vocal training.

This is a class for Russian speakers to learn English.
My very first student was Russian-speaking, to whom I taught English. I am fluent in both languages, and enjoy assisting others in their language learning process!

About Julia

Hi! My name is Julia A. I have been tutoring students of all ages and skill levels at learning centers, colleges, libraries and schools since 2008.

My instruction extends nationwide, with students from all corners of the US, utilizing online tutoring services such as Skype.

My main field of study is in MATH (trig, algebra, geometry, precalculus), CHEMISTRY (high school and college), and PHYSICS (high school and college).

I completed my Bachelors in Physics and Mathematics Education at Hunter University and have gained experience with both in-person and online group instruction and curriculum development.

Some examples of the students I have tutored are: Elementary school students preparing for State competitions and exams; High school and College students in preparance for entrance exams, and in subjects such as algebra, geom

etry, trig, precalc, chemistry and physics.

I do Regents and SAT/ACT prep for these subjects as well as the GRE (These are NYS based High School Preparatory Exams - do not hesitate to ask should you need assistance with the ones offered in your state/country).

In addition, I am thorough and meticulous, by paying special attention to how the student grasps information and retains it, I prepare individualized handwritten reviews, with supplemental material found online and in texts.

I assign homework to keep my students ahead of what is going on in class, and a visual and intuitive understanding of the concepts I present is important to me, so I use visual aids (diagrams and interactive models) to help my students integrate what they learn with me in real life situations.

My instruction includes:
1. Tutoring based on the school curriculum
2. Instruction on the home-schooling curriculum
3. Assisting those with a gap in going back to school/university.

I start with an assessment based on what the student has trouble with or last remembers covering in school, and prepare material going from there.

As a result, my students all have improved grades without any need for cramming before tests, and I encourage a stress-free and easygoing learning environment.

My lessons are fun and enthusiastic - these subjects are beautiful and will help open your mind to new ways of thinking - whatever your field of study!

Great help to our 9y.o., who is exploring math. Clear explanation, additional materials, and a nice memo after each lesson. Thank you! Will do again!

Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools.
I see marked improvements in their grades for this past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise.
Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough.

About my classes:

I strive to provide the best, most interactive online English classes for every student. We will discuss your needs and obtainable goals so that I can personalize your course material in order to reach them.

Some of the ways I integrate technology to make online lessons more effective are:

-Using collaborative slides to be able to work on the materials in real time.
-Online tools and resources in order to make the classes more interactive.
-Alternative assessment using a variety of content creation in English (see below).

Project-based learning and assessment is authentic language use in speaking, listening, reading and writing activities. Students are assigned creative projects based on real-life use of the language. The content is used to create an ebook, website, training or other presentation. Their project is used for studying, reviewing and as a measure of progress and assessment over time.

Students can choose to participate in this ...

About Sara

I offer online classes in Spanish, English language (ESL/EFL), TOEFL exam prep and writing. I have taught students from age 3 to senior citizens. I have experience teaching in language centers, bilingual schools and in companies.

I have a TEFL diploma, TBE (Teacher of Business English) Certificate, BA in English Language Learner Studies with a minor in History and an MA in Teaching and Learning with Technology with a specialization as an online educator. Currently, I am pursuing my second MA degree in Curriculum and Instruction.

I begin with new student by identifying their priorities and then setting a SMART goal. Based on the timeline, I make an action plan that we follow so the student can see progress in each and every class. We reevaluate goals and materials as needed.

To make the online classes more interesting and effec

tive, we will use slides to collaborate on the materials together. This allows us to communicate in real time and the information is saved to the drive, so it is easily accessible from any computer, smartphone or tablet.

We can import images, verb charts, worksheets, PDF and doc files, ebooks and videos as needed. Using the tools, you and I will both be able to edit, write and draw on the materials and add any additional notes, links or resources during or between classes.

Please don't hesitate to use the "Ask a question" feature to contact me with any special circumstances or concerns.

I am an experienced classroom teacher and tutor who has taught classrooms of English language learners. Together, we will make sure you succeed and meet your goals. English will become more clear, you will be able to express yourself better, and you will be proud of your accomplishments. Lessons are individualized--made special and helpful just for you.

About Melissa

I am an experienced classroom teacher, tutor, caregiver, and leader. I have minors in Music and Spanish, a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, and a Master's degree in Educational Leadership. I have also been in competitive public speaking for several years.

With a solid understanding of education from different perspectives -leadership, students, parents, teachers, and more - I know what it takes to help students achieve at their full potential. I ensure lessons and material are unique to the student, engaging and enjoyable, relevant, and catalysts for growth and success. Test preparation is also a skill I help students excel in. In fact, some of the schools I have been partnered with have even been featured on television.

As a competitive public speaker, I have won awards at the local, state, and national levels. I have also fo

unded, coached, and judged teams and speakers.

As a musician, I have played and/or competed in solos, duets, quartets, concerts and more. I have studied music theory, written my own music, won scholarships, and taught others.

My students vary in ability from autistic and nonverbal, to English language learners, to gifted and talented. I have taught students in rural, suburban, and urban environments in charter, public, and private schools. My students are from a variety of different cultures, religions, and backgrounds. The similarity they share is being proud of their achievements after working together!

My students typically tell me that I am one of their favorite teachers. I believe every student is capable of achievement, and it is my mission to help them get there. I see students greater than they see themselves, and in sharing this, they end up feeling more confident and empowered themselves. My lessons are fun, relevant, effective, and individualized. I can't wait to partner up with you! Let's make your goals happen!

As an experienced ESL instructor, lessons can range depending on your needs. My experience includes teaching academic English courses of beginning and intermediate levels for various skills (listening, reading, writing, vocabulary/literacy, and grammar).

I have also tutored English privately, focusing on one-on-one instruction. In these sessions, I have worked closely with students to isolate and improve weak spots in their pronunciation, taught collocations and expressions (conversational and academic English), and concentrated on listening practice.

My graduate level certification and extensive teaching background has prepared me to teach you, regardless of your goals for improving your English!

About Naomi

I am a performer and teacher, specializing in cello and English as a Second Language. I graduated with a bachelor and master degree in music performance (cello) from Ball State University (Indiana). While a student, I had a multitude of teaching experiences ranging from music theory, music history, ear training, and English as a Second Language.

For the past three years, I have taught beginning/intermediate cello students. My teaching experiences began at a non-profit community music camp, Music for the Sake of Music, in Green Bay, Wisconsin. During this experience, I found a passion for teaching beginning students because of the fundamental need to provide a solid foundation. These early teaching experiences also inspired my teaching philosophy. Students can expect to focus on technique while simultaneously working on challenging and

exciting repertoire. Although there is an emphasis on strong fundamentals, I strive to demonstrate the fun and beneficial qualities of studying music. Music should not be a chore but rather a source of creativity and enjoyment.

I am open to teaching students of all ages and levels, although the majority of my experience is in beginning and intermediate levels. I've studied the cello for 14 years. I have experience in tutoring music theory, sight-ear (ear training), and music history. Also, I have been certified through the National College Learning Center Association, completing training that emphasizes engagement of students. Through this training I've learned how to help students learn independently and overcome challenges through trial and error. In music, these skills foster efficient practice techniques that often lead to a quickly developed technique.

During my studies, I was also a classroom instructor of ESL. I taught academic English to university students with various proficiency levels. In these classes, I taught between 2-15 students. This experince strengthened my classroom management but also taught me how to prepare lesson plans catering to individual students. I have received a graduate level certification in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and in doing so I have studied materials development, classroom assessment/creating assessments, and methodologies for teaching English as a second language. Lastly, I have tutored individuals in ESL, working closely to improve listening, speaking, and vocabulary.

As a performer, I have played in many regional orchestras throughout Indiana such as the Lafayette Symphony Orchestra, Muncie Symphony Orchestra, and Kokomo Symphony Orchestra. I also have experience performing outside of a classical setting, especially in recording. In previous years I have recorded on pop albums for independent artists and composers. My most notable experience includes recording with Tony Award winning actress and singer, Sutton Foster on her newest album Take Me to the World.

Studying music is not about achieving perfection; it is about creativity and joy and obtaining skills that transfer to numerous fields. I look forward to meeting you and helping you develop a wide variety of skills that will enrich many parts of your life.

If your goal is to gain vocabulary, you'll be given a list of vocabulary words, definitions, and examples and a topic to write about, with the instruction to use the new vocabulary words in your writing. The assignments are personalised based on YOU.

ABOUT ME:

Although I am new on Take Lessons, for the past 5 years I have been teaching students of many ages, backgrounds and abilities both online and in person. By now I've taught hundreds of students from all over the world! I love this job for 2 reasons:

1. I love to travel! I have been traveling and living overseas for most of the past 8 years and have spent time living, volunteering, working, and exploring all over Asia, Europe, Australia, and more. So far I have been to 30 countries! This job allows me to travel, which I love.

2. When I teach online, it's almost like traveling without ever having to leave my computer. The world comes to me! Sometimes I think that I learn just as much as the students just from talking with people from different places and backgrounds.

Aside from teaching English and traveling, I like: yoga, meditation/mindfulness practice, visiting eco-communities, bouldering and rock climbing, baking and cooking, and board games.

Whoever and wherever you are, it would be my pleasure to work with you. Hope to talk with you soon!
