With a bachelors degree in biology, I have studied a large majority of the natural sciences. I taught high school biology at Tippecanoe Valley High School and had the privilege to inspire the next generation of scientific minds. I currently tutor several college students in their more advanced classes, as well as high school students.
I have extensively studied vocal performance for many years and continue to add to my own technique. I have a Master of Vocal Performance Degree from the Chicago College of Performing Arts. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology, where I extensively studied the anatomy of the voice. I am the founder of BAWS Studio where we train artists in all aspects of performance (singing, songwriting, recording, piano, and guitar). I previously worked for a recording studio (Sound Summit Studios in Naperville IL) where I teach voice and help singers record their music in the studio. I have previously taught at The School of Rock in Indianapolis Indiana. I have administered vocal lessons to every voice type at all different levels. Several of my students have recored albums and are currently performing all over the World.
I have a bachelors
degree in biology with a minor in art. After graduating college, I was a full-time high school biology teacher, volleyball coach, and director of the school musical. As a high school teacher, I learned first hand the kind of pressure and expectations that are placed on students in order for them to succeed. In college, I was the head student researcher on a two-year lab project. I took several upper level science courses including: biochemistry, calculus, organic chemistry, calculus based physics, cell biology, anatomy, and physiology. I studied marine biology in the Virgin Islands and am CPR certified.
*** Lesson Details *** Voice lessons with me are fun and effective. You can expect to hear improved technique from day one, eventually reaching your long term goals. I begin every lesson aligning the students voice through various vocal warm ups and exercises. We then work together to pick repertoire that will suit the singer's voice and they will enjoy singing. During a lesson we will also cover performance presentation, acting, diction, rhythm, musicality, style, and interpretation.
During tutoring you can expect a personalized plan based on your goals and aspirations. Since every student is different you can be assured we will come up with a plan that is designed just for you. I am a laid back tutor but will be sure to get the most out of you after our time together. Most students see at least a one letter grade improvement. My main goal for every tutoring session is student learning and comprehension.
*** Studio Equipment *** Piano, recording equipment, large collection of sheet music
*** Specialties *** I specialize in helping students find their true singing voice.
So far, lessons with Ben have been VERY good (and productive! I'm naturally a reserved person, but He has gotten me to push beyond my comfort zone (that is "be louder"), which in retrospect has also helped me build my confidence in other areas. So at this point I look forward to having lessons, because I am growing in my understanding of how to use this God-given gift; a gift that's meant to be shared (not hidden away in silence).

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!
Julia was very organized and well informed about chemistry. She was so much help. I would definitely use her again.
September 19, 2017
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!
July 27, 2017
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.
I've been teaching chemistry for twenty years and my students have gone from no knowlegde at all to grasp the basic. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to use symbols, moles and equations to solve stoichiometry problems and as time goes on you'll be able to solve more complex problems about gases and thermodynamics. I specialize in stoichiometry, typically I use any chemistry book and have the following tools available for your lessons:Internet, cd's,calculator, and videos, . I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!
My mission is to teach you the way you can understand this new knowledge and apply it
I make sure you learn what is going on with the concepts involved in the topics. Not only do I love chemistry, I enjoy teaching it and helping others get a grip of understanding on the subject. I welcome learners who want to see good grades on their chemistry homework and strive to gain confidence on the subject. Contact me if you would very much like that.
Hi! My name is Hector and I am currently working on a bachelor's degree in Neuroscience. I excel at Math and Chemistry, and I enjoy teaching the subjects as well! I'm very outgoing as well as patient and persistent when it comes to tutoring. I have tutoring history with Statistics, Stoichiometry, Algebra, Writing, English Literature, and a little bit of Drawing (a creative side of my abilities, along with Creative Writing). I tutor for both professional and personal growth!
I am easy to reach, and I welcome parents offering additional educational resources with open arms and an open mind! I look forward to your booking!
Hector is very helpful! In chemistry, he knew his information well and was eager in explaining things followed by checking to make sure we understood the lesson. He takes responsibility in teaching and has a very kind personality. I like to study with him.
October 17, 2017
His passion for the betterment of people and his ability to make complex topics so simplistic truly make him a devoted and effective tutor.
October 13, 2017
I've known Hector for a few years now, and I haven't met anyone as passionate when it comes to his work.
Hector puts forth 110% towards his work and students to ensure quality material. He is patient, and is more than happy to clarify any questions.
Not only does his passion lies within teaching, but he is continulusly striving to learn new things. He loves to analyze complex sciences and the world around him, and as an outcome he formulates fascinating theories. Not only is a great teacher, but a friend who truly inspires those around him.
With over 12 years of experience as a Chemistry Teacher, one of my passions in life is the opportunity to share knowledge constantly, as well as, to help individuals eager to improve even when some details appear to be insignificant. At the age of 19, I formally started working with students of all ages, as a professor of Exact Sciences including Chemistry at the Stephen W. Hawking Institute in Ecuador, my home country. We all should be determined to find an objective/career that would be our passion and reflects our life goal as well. This perspective encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone to move to USA thanks to an Ecuadorian scholarship which financed the commencement of my journey in Environmental Eng. focusing on Nanotechnology at Vincennes Univ. IN. There, I had a training at different Departments as a STEM, English and Spanish tutor; which eventually, gave me the chance to learn about the teaching-learning process of Higher Level Chemistry classes as General ...
I am a Science teacher besides my experience as an English and Spanish tutor, working in this field for more than 6 years. I graduated from Vincennes University with an Associate Degree in Environmental and Ecological Engineering. Currently, I am pursuing my Bachelor Degree in Environmental Engineering at The National Polytechnic University, also known as EPN in Quito, Ecuador.
At the age of 19, I started working as a professor of Abstract Reasoning and Exact Sciences at Stephen W. Hawking Institute in Ecuador, my home country. Eventually, I had the opportunity of training at different Departments as a STEM , Spanish and English tutor at Vincennes Univ., IN, USA from 2016 to 2018.
I strongly believe that we all should be determined to find a career that would be our passion and reflects our life goal as well. This per
spective encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone to become a scholarship student sponsored by Ecuador’s government on 2015; that very August I started my studies at USA. That opportunity represented the commencement that I was looking for my journey Environmental Eng. focused on Nanotechnology.
All these once in a lifetime events have maked me realize that one of my passions in life is the opportunity to share knowledge constantly, as well as, to help individuals eager to improve even when some details appear to be insignificant. Indeed, the process of teaching-learning actually represents such an enriching academic and personal experience.
Assuredly, obstacles really do not matter when we strive for more innovation and knowledge, because the universe always falls in love with a stubborn soul; so let's get started!
Wonderful instructor, patient and makes it very simple to follow her.

She´s an excellent teacher who knows her stuff very well and is able to explain thoroughly. I´ve taken a great liking to her way of teaching very much so, it has been very beneficial!
September 24, 2019
Elizabeth is great! She is very patient and makes sure that you understand the material before moving on. I really appreciate how she customizes her lesson plans based on your level of comfort and understanding.
I have been a science educator since 2008. My goal is to give you confidence that you can conquer chemistry! It's a fun and interesting science and, for me, helping you to experience that is important. I will help you with the quantitative parts of chemistry, too, and help you to learn and use some tools that will help you to do well on assignments and tests. Thanks for considering me!
That is the word around which I build my tutoring.
I want my students to enjoy learning about science. I want them to see and understand why it's useful, how knowing it can help them, and how it can be fun.
To get there, I focus on three things:
First, I try hard to make sure that every student does not lose sight of the overall connection between the very specific, sometimes technical details she is learning and the overarching point of the science. That helps keep the subject interesting.
Second, I work to help the student master the quantitative aspects of science. High school teachers generally emphasize that kind of calculation to a pretty significant degree and, besides, nervousness over the math often gets in the way of enjoying the learning and a better grade!
Third, I strive to develop a strong working relati
onship with the student so that I get a better understanding of the ways that she or he best learn. I use videos, texts and written practice materials, sure, but I also use comics, music, drawing, outdoor activities, and even lab-style learning activities.
This variety helps to assure that a student has some fun while learning and to recognize that the sciences are exciting. If a student is encouraged to believe that, then she or he might not only improve their grade in science class. The student might just become open to some new dreams and, of course, gain alot more confidence.
I make myself available to email or text consultation with a student, with the parent's permission, outside of the regularly scheduled in-person meeting and I do not charge for that extra help.

"Caring, Precise, Knowledgeable, Wise. Time extremely well spent with the Professor."
"Yazmin was terrific! My daughter felt very comfortable working with her. Yazmin was confident with the chemistry content and very good at explaining and
re-teaching the material. I highly recommend Yazmin and are looking forward to working with her again."
"Mr. Colin is an excellent tutor! He is the first tutor of many from whose teaching my AP Chemistry grades improved drastically. He is very easy going and
also easy to talk to. If you don't understand something, he will try to explain it in as many ways possible; just make sure to stop and let him know that you didn't understand the concept. I am very satisfied with his teaching style and therefore plan to have more lessons with Mr. Colin in college chemistry classes. I would 100% recommend him to anyone!"
"I took tutorials on general chemistry with Dr. Alan for one term. He always went extra miles to make sure that I was prepared for my tutorial sessions by
sending me enrichment materials on topics that were covered in my class beforehand. He accommodated my learning style and was able to provide supplemental lectures as I requested, which I appreciate tremendously. He was also always very prompt in responding to my emails. He doesn't always provide direct answers when you ask questions, but provides guidance in a way that makes you think -I believe this is essential in learning. I would recommend tutorials with Dr. Alan if you are keen on learning and truly want to comprehend your subjects of interest well."
"Off to an amazing start with Craig. We started just prior to a big Chem mid-term and were blown away by the commitment he made to getting our son prepare
d for it. Looking forward to doing much more with Craig!"
"Craig is a phenomenal tutor. I struggled with college chemistry and he was thorough and patient in his explanation ensuring the strength of my fundamental
s before explaining the introducing the more difficult topics. He even has now began tutoring my brother in SAT math and my brother has commented how Craig has been able to propel his approach to math. Craig is a fantastic tutor!"
"Colin has done a great job helping my daughter understand chemistry. Her teacher this semester doesn't provide much instruction, so Colin has been great
about explaining and making sure the concept is understood. He's also been easy to work with and flexible when we've needed to change the schedule."
"Craig is a marvelous tutor. For my twins, he brought up their MATH SAT 130 and 150 points respectively. With my middle schooler he has helped bring up her
SSAT to the 94% (percentile) getting her into our top choice. He is thorough and meticulous tutor teaching them how to find and fix their own mistakes."
"Milka is one of the best online tutor I had! She is very patient and walks me through every problem I struggle with. I love the way she helps me solve the
