Any level of math and any age

About Ilona
I am experienced (3 years) in home school tutoring. I mostly work with Florida Virtual School students. I overlook their tests and assignments, and help them with preparations for Discussion Based Assessmemts (DBA). I also help parents with required annual evaluations and how to sign up with home education department.
For my tutoring sessions I use skills that include goal-directedness, I teach how to organize learning in small steps and how to set them up; I always strive to motivate and engage my students to make them interested in learning and have fun; I also use self-control skills to teach how to avoid distractions and I show how to use different focusing strategies. I use positive mind set skills to teach how to use failures as learning opportunities.

I have Masters in Education (2018) with specialization in English, Curricul
um and Education; and Masters in Arts (2012) in Teaching English to speakers of other languages, and Bachelors in Music Education (2010), both from Florida Atlantic University, as well as a degree in violin performance from Chicago.
I studied piano in Chicago for 10 years & taught both piano & violin for over 20 years. I also teach flute & cello for the past 5 years, as I studied them during my Music Education program.
I have taught music for over 24 years using the traditional and Suzuki methods. I am fan of the Essential Elements method and I Can Read Music book for string instruments, and the Alfred's Piano Library for piano. Alfred's piano library can be used for any age as they also have books especially made for adult learners. I also like their music flash cards.
For teaching music theory I mostly used Fundamentals of Piano Theory (9 levels) combined with Master Theory (6 levels) books.

I personalize every lesson, and always set goals for my students. Most of my violin students are members of the Florida Youth Orchestra as well as the Gold Coast Youth Orchestra and my piano students participate in Pompano Beach Piano competition and the annual Piano Guild auditions.
I teach any age and any level, and always stress that learning a new instrument is very similar to learning a new language, it needs a lot of patience, persistence and repetitions. My lessons are customized to my students needs, and are work in progress as they needs may change over time. I always remind my students that music can give them instant gratification when they learn to play favorite songs.
I always encourage my students to tell me about their music preferences, so I can incorporate them in their music lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
All my tutoring sessions include reviews of previously learned material and if possible the use of technology. I use students books but often bring extra study materials if necessary.
All my lessons include technique and reading music. I like to use the Finger Power for piano students and Essential Elements for my string students, and scales for both.
Music theory: I use Master Theory and Fundamentals of Piano Theory books for younger ages, Alfred's music flash cards to support learning notes and musical terminology, and of course the fun part performance.

Besides Essential Elements for strings I also use String Tunes and I Can Read Music to add more fun to the lessons as well as support reading music during the lesson. For piano students I use Holiday Treats book, which comes in 2 different levels: Beginner & Intermediate, so my students have a new songs for a specific holiday.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I always bring violin with me to be able to show what I teach.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The students need to have their books and assigned material ready for tutoring. Instrumental students needs to have their music books, flashcards & instrument available as well as a pencil. I always stress with my students to be organized and prepared for their lesson, this way they will be able to focus better during the lesson. I always bring my violin with me. I also ask that the room where the lesson takes place be free of any distractions, such other siblings or any other noise. The quiet environment helps in faster learning.

*** Specialties ***
I tutor most K-12 subjects and prepare students to take ACT, SAT, GRE tests.
Music genres: Classical, traditional, Suzuki, Popular, Celtic, fiddle, Blues

Experienced, knowledgable and persistent in teaching. I did not think I will be able to learn fast, but Ilona helps in every step. From holding the bow rightly, to using fingers, learning the language of music, she is patient and persistent. I recommend her without reservation..

I have been tutoring for almost 5 years. During my lessons, I help with homework and add additional problems and examples in areas the student seem to be struggling in. I like to use visual representations as often as possible because I believe that the way one student learns, does not apply to all students! If the student isn't understanding, then it's the teacher's fault. I've worked with hyperactive, special needs children for almost ten years and I believe that learning should be (and needs to be) fun. I try to incorporate that into all of my lessons!

About Sara
Hi! My name is Sara and I just graduated from Brigham Young University in Provo. I now live in Texas as a photographer while my husband attends medical school. I love learning and getting to experience lots of different things! When I worked at BYU as a Peer Mentor, I met one-on-one with first year college students to assist them in developing time management skills, effective study strategies, and test-prep skills. Before that I worked at a daycare for a year where I ran a homework club for elementary school students. I've also assisted in creating and carrying out a homeschool curriculum for my 4 special needs siblings over the last few years and currently teach a Sunday School class of 3 years-olds at my church - some of which also have special needs. I genuinely enjoy spending time with and meeting new people and I'm excited to get to
know each of you!

She is extremely sensitive to every individual's needs and she truly makes a difference in their lives and in helping them to become better and more effective students. She really helped me to better manage my time and study more effectively. I highly recommend her.

Math is a wonderful subject.
I think it's fun! And like to make it fun.
I like to work with children on Math projects in a way that they can always check their answers to see for themselves that they indeed have cone to the correct answer.

Math is magical, captivating and FUN and should be taught in just that fantastic of a fashion.

I specialize in working with ages 3 to 11 years of age. I'm available to teach Math, or Pre-Math to the younger ages to give them a good prestart and foundation.

About Sunshine
Hello!😄♥️😁 I'm Sunshine! I'm a singer songwriter musician, and teach music locally, and now online. My husband & I own a music business, we sell guitars, keyboards, drums, mandolin, ukulele's, etc.. (lots of different instruments).
We both give music lessons. I teach piano, guitar, and voice lessons. He teaches guitar, drums, mandolin, lap steel guitar, and can do "bass and ukulele" lessons if desired as well. So between us, we cover several instruments.

We've had seasonal "Kids School of Music Bands" offered at our facility over the last several years, which is an addition great option if you're here locally where we're located.

I can teach you songwriting skills as well if you have an interest in that direction. I started writing songs when I was around 11 years old. It's a passion of mine. If you have a melody for a song, but
have a problem finding or creating your lyrics, we can work on that, or vice versa, if you have some great lyrics but you need to find your melody and/or need to create your song flow "for" those lyrics, we can also work on those skills.

I also offer pre-math and math skills for ages 3 to 11 years, also, reading, writing, and FUN phonics skills.

Whatever your focus is on, just contact me and let me know.

So ... SMILE guys! 😁😁😁 Lets make things FUN and enjoyably Colorful in whichever direction your going!

🌞☀️🌝 Sunshine! 😁

Jennifer is a wonderful tutor that personalizes instruction for the child. My fifth grader loved working with her and not only learned but also gained confidence and enjoyment in reading. Even though he no longer needs reading support, Jennifer continues to be in contact with us and is a reading buddy to my son. They pick a book every quarter to read outside of my son's school books and talk about it. Who has a tutor who does that?

Jennifer taught my third-grade daughter who has Dyslexia. She came to the house twice a week and used a combination of Orton-Gillingham and Wilson to teach my daughter. The combination made it possible for my daughter to work on phonemic awareness, phonics, and comprehension in a way that builds on my daughter's skills which gave her confidence and success. She also gave my daughter diagnostic assessments to pinpoint her struggles and periodic assessments to see her progress. She wrote up reports for myself and my daughter's teacher to further build her success. Jennifer ended every lesson with an academic game which my daughter loved so much we had to get some of them for her. Jennifer was wonderful and got my daughter to grade level and helped her to pass her EOGs. She is also very flexible and so supportive. She took interest in my daughter's likes and even came to her dance recital. You can tell she loves what she does and loves working with children.

I am an adult student who was studying at a community college. I was looking for a tutor to help with my math but was having trouble finding someone since I have a disability. I found Jennifer and she was wonderful. She met with me twice a week for an hour each time to help me work through my lessons. She was also always available by phone or email in between lessons to help with anything I needed including motivation and support. I tutored with her for two years and officially graduated from college. Jennifer came and supported me and was more than a tutor but a friend. She is extremely caring, patient and smart.

I majored in Philosophy/Computer Science and minored in Mathematics in college. I tutor math, physics, general engineering, writing and test prep for high school, college and adult students. I also work with mentally disabled, ADD, autistic and bipolar students. During college, I worked as a network engineer, chef and tutor.

I teach in a logical and straightforward manner and try to cultivate my students' personal understanding of the material. I accomplish this by giving them plenty of questions and examples, which guide, test and clarify their understanding of concepts. If their fundamentals are sound, then students can reason through and apply concepts more effectively than otherwise. It also builds their self-confidence. I work best with students who are also interested in learning and usually leave them with some food-for-thought between our sessions.

Math can be intimidating to students. I know because it used to be this way for me. However, with the help of a fantastic professor I fell in love.

I found that understanding why operations are performed as they are intended helped me to finally see the pieces fall into place. Thus, my approach to any mathematics revolves around understanding they why just as much as how to implement the techniques.

I also assist students in finding the way that best suits them to properly study the subject. Math, unlike other subjects, requires repetitive practiced application. Developing the proper study skills and fine tuning organizational skills go a very long way in being a successful math student.

About Jessica
I am studying for an undergraduate degree in Molecular Biology at the University of Texas, Dallas. I have an Associate in Science degree from Eastfield Community College in Mesquite, Texas. I am also a member of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society for academic excellence and received a place on the All-State Academic Team.

While working towards my degree I have run many study and tutoring groups where students saw an average increase of a full letter grade. I also assisted students individually. I spent just under three years working as a biology lab assistant with Eastfield College. My job responsibilities included assisting individuals with the material presented in lab, writing experiments that supported information learned in lecture, and assisting in creating new lab manuals.

Learning should be individualized to every student. I not
only work with students on the material, but also place an emphasis in organizational and study skills. I encourage students to think about the why and how to deepen understanding.
