Weehawken, NJ

View Full Profile

I currently work for and have been extensively trained by The VIPKID organization where, over the internet, I teach children from China to speak English. I have won praise from both my students and their parents for my empathetic and patient approach.

About Amy
I have been a voice, acting, and teacher of creative arts for over 25 years. My background includes ten years of classical voice training with Maestro Julio Berrocal, as well as vocal training through the Feldenkrais approach with Marcy Lindhiemer. In acting, I have studied with renowned Stanislavsky scholar Sonia Moore and Master acting teacher of the Strasberg Method, Marcia Haufrecht. I received a B.A. For comparative literature and creative writing at the State University of New York at Purchase and have recently completed my Master's degree in social work at Walden University.
I believe, within all of us, Is the ability to express something distinctive and original. I work to help students discover their unique voice, whether it be through singing, acting, or writing. I share with my students an array of tools to gain the ability
and confidence to achieve their goals. I empathize deeply with the challenges students may face when pursuing a life in the creative and performing arts, having worked professionally in those areas for most of my adult life. I believe it is the teacher's job to respect each student's individual process of learning.
My students have gone on to become recording artists, Broadway performers, movie actors, Blues and cabaret artists, and published writers.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice
I am an empathetic teacher, sensitive to the student's individual process of learning. My singing lessons usually start with breathing and relaxation exercises. Vocal technique exercises come next. When the student is fully warmed up, we will begin to work on songs. It is important that students be a part of the process of picking material since the more personally they respond to the material the more apt they are to become engaged in their lessons. After three to six months beginning students will have gained an understanding of the fundamentals of breathing, relaxation, and basic performance skills. With more advanced students the focus will be on range extension and the on-going development of vocal style through song interpretation and performance related exercises.
Acting
As an acting teacher and coach, I tailor my classes to the needs of each student. I utilize improvisatory and sensory techniques to help unleash spontaneity. I also encourage the students to use their personal experiences as a way to access a full range of emotions. I enjoy working with the student on script analysis, so as to discover the underlying motivations of the character the student is working on.
Creative and Lyric Writing
I use prompts as a way to get the student writing. Often, I will ask the student to write for stretches of time without editing themselves. It is important to unleash imagination before beginning the process of editing. Many times it is the unexpected that is the most compelling.

*** Studio Equipment ***
home- 10 minutes away from Manhattan with piano, seating for parents
-practice studio seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a piano, cd/mp3 player and an large library of songbooks to work from. The student should bring sheet music of songs they want to work on and a recording device.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching how to sing rock, pop, musical theater, jazz, cabaret, and blues without hurting the voice as well as method acting instruction.

“I've tried to learn English for a long time and, though I learned a big amount of words , I wasn't able of having a short conversation with nobody. Teacher Beverly have been making a great job by identifying my difficulties and then working hard straight on it at abslutely enjoyable online classes. I'm really happy because in a few time I've improved my English skills as I've never did before, nevertheless I'm sure that there are so much to be learnt from her yet.”

Each session will have a check-in assessing what your goals are for the lesson that day. We will review spoken english, written, and reading based on your current level.

About Shelley
I'm a professional singer/teacher residing in New York City with degrees from Indiana State University, and New York University with a specialization in Classical Art Song, Musical Theatre Repertoire, and Vocal Pedagogy.

Every lesson is about YOU. So each week we will take a look at your goals for the lesson, whether you are preparing for college auditions, school talents shows, a desire to work with music theory, or piano skills, this is your opportunity to explore. Everything is possible.

As a professional singer myself, I am constantly auditioning on broadway, off-broadway, and for smaller local and regional theater opportunities. I believe that as a teacher I have to continue to be in the field and learning as the industry continues to change. I have to be aware of the opportunities in this business. I have been hired by pr
ofessional opera and musical theatre companies, in additional to large choral works as a soloist, and have a private studio in Washington Heights.

Prior to NYC I taught middle school choir for 200+ students, of which I received teacher of the year in 2012. I also still hold a valid teaching license in the state of Indiana and currently applying toward my NYS teaching certification.

Within my voice studio I teach in person and online lessons. While online lessons can be beneficial for students wishing to study with me that are not in the immediate vicinity, I recommend in person lessons

I look forward to hearing your beautiful voice and helping you to embrace music. Feel free to check out my website for any further information!

Shelley is an amazing teacher! From the beginning she took the time to hear out my concerns, and then made sure to explain the exercises to me, and how they helped. If she noticed I was having trouble with an exercise, she would modify it, or try something different that would help in a similar way. She also was quick to notice when I was holding back, and would push me to try my very best. Because of her my voice improved in ways I thought it never would, and my confidence did as well! I look forward to the day I can continue my lessons with her!

I've been teaching ESL to adults for 10 years, both in face to face and on-line formats. As a former ESL student myself, I empathize with the struggle and frustration that comes when learning to communicate in a whole different language. I have accumulated several tips and strategies to facilitate practice and accelerate learning and fluency. I design my lessons to meet the goals of each student and strive to make the class fun and memorable. Let's work together to improve your written a/o spoken English!

About Nery
I am a teacher at heart. I like the language arts and the satisfaction that comes with helping others achieve their goals through learning a new language. I am a good communicator and adapt easily to new situations. I creatively customize lessons and instruction to meet the needs of the individual learner. I believe that creating a welcoming, fun and relaxing class environment fosters student’s confidence and a pleasant learning experience.

My professional life started in the corporate world, working as a Human Resources analyst before moving to the USA from my native México. I spent my first years in Texas at home, raising my kids and improving my bilingual skills. Some years later, I volunteered at my parish teaching ESL to adult immigrants. Having greatly enjoyed this activity, I started part time jobs at Harris County Department
of Education and McDonald’s, teaching ESL to a diverse body of adult students. These opportunities allowed me to gain considerable experience and confidence.

Let me help you start or improve your ESL or Spanish skills!

I have over eight years of teaching experience with Japanese and Chinese students. ESL lessons do not have to be the same all the time. But I offer at least three types of ESL lessons: free talking, book learning, or news reading. On the get-go, we would need to assess whether our focus is with listening, reading, speaking, or writing. Whether or not you are intending to pass your IELTS, TOEFL, or EIKEN test, learning should always be fun and progressive!

About Kimberly
Hello! I have been teaching ESL to Japanese and Chinese students for over eight years now. Over those years, I have seen my students speak English confidently and fluently especially in their travels.

Currently, I work as a front desk agent in one of the prestigious hotel chains in the world. Meeting different types of people helped me communicate and understand well how proper English is necessary and vital.

I can help you improve your English so you can be better understood and focus on enjoying your travels if you like travelling to English-speaking countries.

If you want to have fun learning English or learning English is your hobby, go ahead and book my lessons. See you!

I am very easy going, encouraging, and a great conversationalist. I completely customize lessons based on each students' skills and goals, as well as favorite topics, and how they learn best. I am knowledgeable on many subjects, and more importantly, good at getting students talking, no matter what age or background.

About Chris
Hi, my name is Chris and I am a native speaker and tutor of American English. I have taught people of all ages to improve their English and I can help you too!

In January 2014, I began teaching classes and private lessons in Warsaw, Poland and later in Berlin, Germany. I have also taught in New York City and online via Skype, to people from various countries around the world. My father and his two brothers were all teachers, so I guess that is where I get my natural teaching ability.

I have a bachelor's degree in Sociology from Penn State University, where I also taught some classes. I also have business experience and can teach students to speak and write in English for any situation!

I am very easy going, encouraging, and a great conversationalist. I customize lessons based on each student's skills and goals, as well as favori
te topics, and how they learn best. I am knowledgeable on many subjects, and more importantly, good at getting students talking, no matter what age or background.

REVIEWS:
Below are reviews by some of my former students in Poland from e-korepetycje.net/chrisnyc/jezyk-angielski (translated from Polish into English). I have also taught students from Germany, Hungary, Sweden, Spain, South Korea, Argentina, China, Israel, France, Indonesia, Columbia and Turkey.

"A really good teacher and the great hour-long conversations with him provide guidance not drudgery. He is enthusiastic and cheerful, recommended." - Magda

"I worked with Chris for 3 months, and I'm very happy. We focused on conversation, vocabulary development (based on analysis of interrogated podcasts), and correction of pronunciation. With Chris, any subject can be interesting to talk about." - Wojtek

"He worked with my 10-year-old son Antek, inventing dialogues in English based on the boy's favorite superhero characters and their behavior. Chris is creative and always smiling, and Antek misses the lessons." - Jerzy

"Great lessons with a sense of humor. Conversations require thinking and combining vocabulary (no shortcuts and tips in Polish). Big emphasis on correct pronunciation and vocabulary. In a word, I highly recommend." - Michael

"I can recommend wholeheartedly. We have real discussions, not set topics, and discuss how certain words are challenging for us. From time to time we also have a lesson in which we process words or homophones that are difficult for us (thief/teeth). We strongly recommend to all who want to rise above the level of intermediate." - Pawel

"Chris is a really great conversationalist! He only speaks English, which forces you to think and conduct conversations only in English, which is half the battle! If I do not understand what he says, he will explain it in so many ways that I finally understand. He is a very open person, easy to talk with, problem-free, and has many interests, so you can talk about anything. I would recommend as a native speaker!" - Izabela
