*** Lesson Details ***
I maintain a fun, understanding, patient, and straightforward approach to help you play what you want, while building essential techniques and skills using music of your choosing. In younger students this often perpetuates enthusiasm and develops taste. I also tutor music theory, composition, and/or songwriting, and upon request, will bring those skill sets into the lesson curriculum. I prefer to come to you, but am willing to host and have before. I will produce additional references and a resume upon request. If you commit to practicing and your lesson curriculum, you can expect noticeable improvement and a solid base of knowledge and essential skills, achieved through the music you love.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have my own instrument, tuner, cables, etc. I generally expect my students to provide their own instrument, and be willing to purchase a few basic materials (book for lesson entries, one other instructional book). I'm a minimalist when it comes to this. I am always willing to consult on instruments, materials, or anything other query's you may have outside lessons, via phone or e-mail.
*** Specialties ***
As per my degree, I am especially knowledgeable regarding popular music, rock and roll, and jazz. I hold student recitals every year and I've had many students perform, as well as write their own music and gain a solid knowledge of beginner music theory. My education and experience have been comprehensive, and I am versatile within all genres of music.
Very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Motivates his students.
I must say that I am please with Jamie's technique and patience with me. Jamie is very knowledgable and shares some of his secrets (not shortcuts mind you) that help in learning to master the acoustic guitar. He leaves you with valuable lessons and exercises that can do nothing but improve on how you play the guitar. I'm looking forward to continuing my lessons with Jamie.
As a teacher, I draw on my professional experience as an actor and singer, my teaching background in myriad subjects (Feldenkrais, Music Together, general music, theatre, yoga, fitness, literature, etc.), and my eclectic training in acting, classical voice, musical theatre, various methods of body work, and healing.
I strive to create a working environment where students feel safe to take risks, learn to challenge themselves, and find increased joy and freedom in expression. Self-awareness/body
Though I have a long background in performing arts and performing arts education, my teaching philosophies and techniques draw primarily from my study of movement and mindfulness through disciplines such as yoga, and especially the Feldenkrais Method, "a remarkable approach to human movement, learning and change... based on sound principles of physics, neurology and physiology, and the conditions under which the nervous system learns best." (The Feldenkrais Institute, NY, NY, 2013).

Finding mastery in practices of music, acting, and mindfulness have core similarities - when you find your flow, it feels like flying. But we have to start from the ground up. The stronger the foundation, the higher you fly. Let's get started!

I've worked with middle, high school and college students on developing the reading, writing and research skills needed for success in many academic areas. I've worked with second language learners on speaking, reading, and writing.
Preparing for essay tests is one of my areas of expertise, but my teaching philosophy is less about preparing for a particular test than it is about developing strategies that work for a broad number of tests and in real life situations.
I love working with adults and younger people on developing storytelling techniques, and public spe

I have extensive experience working with gifted students and students with learning disabilities. I've had great success helping all kinds of students because I am very patient, I give simple explanations and I adapt my teaching style to each student's learning style.
The history of my academic-philosophical-work extends back to my senior year of high school, during which I was afforded the opportunity to participate in two philosophy seminars: one on normative ethics, and the other on existentialism. These two courses confirmed some of what I had suspected all my life but had not yet found the words to express — that we are not a
In college I focused on philosophy, in particular, ethics, epistemology, metaphysics, existentialism, philosophy of mind, philosophy of language, and philosophy of religion. And in addition to studying and writing I co-ran Hampshire’s philosophy club. I also became the Teaching Assistant for my professors Introduction To Philosophy seminar. I wrote a thesis during my senior year on the Scottish philosopher David Hume’s empirical account of personal identity — and his related confession(s).
In the two years since my graduation from Hampshire, I have continued to write about and ponder consciousness. Over the course of the past year, I have been teaching a philosophy course at two middle schools in Brooklyn through a New York City-funded after school program called “Play Study Win”. Teaching this interesting age group, has caused me to realize that I want to become a philosophy professor one day. And now I tutor.
If you like good conversation; If you have ever been interested in any of the philosophical topics I mentioned; or if you're taking a philosophy class and would like help with your reading or writing assignments, then I am the tutor for you. I can help with any level.
I specialize in creative writing, academic writing, and college admissions essays. Whether you or your child wants to improve their writing, loves writing but experiences writer's block or an inability to actually DO the writing, or wants to workshop essays for a class, application, or personal project, I am excited to work together with my students and help them achieve their goals.
At Tufts University I studied English with a focus in creative writing. In school I wrote a mix of analytical papers and creative works, culminating in a fiction thesis. In school I taught a successful weekly creative writing class to homeschooled students, helping them improve their writing and create new and engaging stories that they later submitted to contests and magazines around the Northe

Does your child struggle to understand key math concepts from time to time? Hiring a private tutor to meet with your child weekly can help introduce new topics and reinforce the old ones at a pace that isn't dictated by a school system, rather, by your child's individual pace. Another handy tool in between meetings with the private tutor is the implementation of math worksheets. Repetition has been proven to be one of the many keys to success - so with math worksheets, you can help your child g … Read More
