Brooklyn, NY

I have over five years of experience teaching writing to all levels and special needs (children-adults). Students will have fun writing poems, short stories, and essays. My teaching goal is to increase students self esteem and confidence.

About Tamara
I'm a producer, instructor, singer songwriter, sound engineer, and composer residing in Brooklyn, New York. I'm currently working on a Master's Degree in Music Production and Sound Design at The Academy of Art University, freelancing as a pianist/vocalist, and I'm working on and recording a second album.

I started singing, playing piano, and composing music when I was seven years old. Throughout my musical career, I have performed and collaborated with various rock bands, classical trios, vocal ensembles, churches, and theater groups.

My Education includes Berklee College of Music, Academy of Art University, McNally Smith College of Music, MCTC, and Full Sail University (BS and AAS degrees in Music Performance, Sound Arts/sound Engineering, Music Production).

I enjoy writing and playing classical, electronic, rock, jazz,
folk, punk, and experimental music. In my free time I like to circuit bend.

*** Lesson Details ***
When you take lessons from me expect to be inspired and pushed. I thoroughly love teaching music and want the best for my students. I try my best to involve and invite students to join or listen to live music ensembles, recitals, and performances of different genres. I teach all styles of music for voice, piano, and guitar. I am very diligent with practicing, teaching you how to practice, and keeping track of it. In 3 or 6 months you will have a basic understanding of music theory and a solid foundation of piano, voice, or guitar techniques. I thrive to boost self esteem and confidence in all the students that I teach. I also teach composition, students really enjoy writing their own songs and performing them.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a guitar. I expect students that want voice or piano lessons to have some kind of keyboard in working condition.

*** Specialties ***

As a member of of MTNA (Music Teachers National Association) I am able to give your students great resources and opportunities to enter competitions.

I am also a member of New York State Music Teachers Association.

I am also a Pro Tools certified user.

Our first piano lesson with Tamara was really pleasant. She was very welcoming and attentive the whole time. I can tell my son was really enjoying the lesson. The details with the progress sheet and flash cards she provided was a plus for me. Her studio space also made the experience really great!

Writing is a process and everyone works differently. I work well with everything from planning work to editing and restructuring. My years of lit-based education have enabled me to encounter many different styles of writing and therefore I have a great deal of respect for the process of putting pen to paper. Tutoring college students with all different backgrounds taught me how to hone in on both strong and weak aspects of writing.

Having worked as an assistant to the head of pedagogy at Purchase College, I have had experience with hands-on assignment building and was often instrumental in assisting students with very challenging materials.

About Hannah
I have been tutoring for over 5 years now and have worked on everything from personal creative writing projects to senior theses to college writing assignments. I graduated with a BA in Literature from Purchase College in 2014 to start my publishing career. I am an avid reader as my background suggests - I love reading in every capacity and share my enthusiasm with all of my students. My favorite genres are classic American literature, metafiction, and popular science though I read everything in between as well. Past students have been known to call me vibrant, imaginative, and ambitious. One of my greatest joys as a tutor is to help see students all the way through challenging projects. I pay very close attention to the needs of my students and feel it is highly important to facilitate a comfortable but structured working environment for
each student's particular challenges.

Repetition, repetition, repetition. The more you write, the better you get at it.

I give my kids example prompts- we review them. For homework, I have them do a writing on their own and we make corrections together.

About Tamar

Tamar is a wonderful, dynamic and enthousiastic teacher and my 12 year old daughter had a great time with her.
Tamar knows when to slow down if her student is tired, but is also demanding so as to be sure that progress are made.
It was a pleasure seeing how fast my daughter improved her English and we both appreciated meeting Tamar, who is a great person :)

TAMAR IS A GEM

Tamar is a gem!

I have been working with her for the past year and she has helped me completely transform my academic situation.

I am a freshman in high school who struggles with ADHD. Tamar's patience and diligence is completely unsurpassed. She goes above and beyond to ensure that I am not only doing my work, but she breaks down the material for me in such a way that it is easy to understand. Tamar puts in hours of her own time to create tests and study guides which has helped give me the extra advantage i need. I recommend her to anyone. She is by far one of the best tutors and individuals ever.

I have been teaching and tutoring ESL for many years now, both in the USA and even abroad. I scored a 5 on both my AP Language and AP Literature exams. I have experience also teaching the SAT Writing section and essay. I also have experience with writing personal statements and résumés.

About Jessica
ACADEMIC BACKGROUND:
I graduated with my Master of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology with Highest Honors at Queens College, which only accepts four percent of applicants. I graduated Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Pittsburgh Honors College on a Full Tuition Honors College Scholarship with a double major in French and Italian Language and Literature. I graduated with a 4.0 GPA. Last year, I scored above the 93rd percentile on my GRE Verbal and Writing sections. In high school, I scored above the 98th percentile on the SAT/ACT Verbal sections. I graduated high school with a 4.0 GPA from all AP and honors classes.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE:
I am a speech-language pathologist with experience teaching children and adults various areas of language. Additionally, I have been tutoring a range of other subjects for over f
ive years. I have worked at the international Berlitz Language School, where I have taught English, French and Italian to children and adults of all levels and all language backgrounds. I also have years of experience teaching SAT classes at test prep companies in New York.

TEACHING APPROACH:
I tailor my lessons to each student I teach and to his or her individual learning styles. I am friendly, patient and not intimidating: three qualities that I personally find important in a tutor. I truly love teaching and meeting new students. I find that I always learn from my students when I teach as well! During our first lesson together, we can discuss your goals and create an academic plan personalized to your needs. I look forward to working with you!

My approach to teaching writing begins with learning where the student is currently at ability wise, then taking the time to build a custom lesson plan that will cater to strengthening current weaknesses while not being boring or generic.

Hello! I'm Leo, and I will be your prospective tutor for today. I am a New School alum in the literary studies program, with a specialization in fiction writing. Most of my teaching experience stems from a martial arts background (specifically taekwondo, Muay Thai and Brazilian jiu jitsu) , where I taught students ranging from 4-60 years old.

I look forward to meeting all of you while helping with whatever you need help with.

I love teaching writing because there are so many topics to write about, and we can really have fun with it. It's been proven that students write more, and of a better quality when they have a topic that keeps their interest. Through using interesting topics, students will learn proper paragraph structure and how to vary their sentences in any genre of writing. Students will also work on using vibrant vocabulary that is appropriate to the topic.

About Amy
Hi, there! My name is Amy and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2006 and have loved helping my students raise their test scores, confidence level, and overall grades. I recently became a member of the National Tutoring Association. I hold a Masters degree from National University, and a Bachelors from Centenary University. I work closely with students, parents, and their teachers to assess the individual need(s) of the student, thus providing individualized lessons that target the most important areas. I utilize several different teaching methods, as there are many different learning styles. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Amy is so great with kids! I originally hired Amy to help my daughter with essay writing, as she was applying for a private high school. Amy quickly zeroed in on my daughter's weak points in writing, and had fun activities to help improve the weak points. I feel that my daughter's writing greatly improved because she went from writing short 2 or 3 paragraph answers to full essays in a few weeks. My daughter loved the writing topics, and was thrilled to begin writing her entrance essay. With Amy's guidance and direction, my daughter wrote an amazing, well organized essay that resulted in my daughter getting into her 1st choice school. We actually kept Amy on beyond the writing tutoring, because she has such a way of breaking down concepts.

There's nothing more frustrating, intimidating, and scary than a blank white page. But no need to fear -- I can work with you to help process what it is you want to say and how you want to say it. Whether it's college admission essays or school papers, whether you are starting from a complete draft or an empty page, I will teach you smart, creative ways to express yourself with the written word.

About Eric

If you're interested in preparing for auditions, either for musicals or plays, I can help you select and perfect your audition material. If you want private instruction for Shakespeare, I'm your person. If you want lessons in reading, writing, or both--whether its literature, essays for class or college admissions, or your own creative writing, I'd lov
