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.
Phenomenal. Gets to the point, is great at demonstrating, and provides feedback you can work off of.

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).
I use the simplest way to teach and very interactive manner, so it make the subject more interesting and easiest to understand.
I have been teaching since 2008 with some of the best online teaching companies in the world. Experience of 10 years is more enough to show my teaching skills to different types of students from different countries. My subjects of expertise are Maths, Physics, Chemistry, and Biologywith the class range from Elementary level to college grade. it will be really great to work with you if you need some best teacher that can explain everything from the easiest level to hard.
Chemistry is both fun and fascinating, which is lucky because it's a really important prerequesite. I've completed four semesters of Chemistry at Harvard as part of the Pre-Med curriculum - General Chem I & II, Organic Chemistry, and Biochemistry.
The most important attributes of any teacher are empathy and patience.
I currently attend Harvard University and work as a professional writer and tutor. I've lived all over the United States, although I grew up in Scotland of all places. My scores on the SAT and ACT were perfect (1600 and 36 respectively), though I too had to work hard to get there, so I know what it's like when you're just starting out.
Over the years, I've worked with students suffering from ADD, autism, dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, speech disorders, and depression; I personally grew up inured to social anxiety, so I can always empathize.
Some tutors will tell you that they know all the tricks and shortcuts. But really, there are no tricks. No shortcuts. Just hard work and sleepless nights and talking to yourself while brushing your teeth in the morning
I have a decade of experience and a vast collection of study materials that I can share with you for free. I've had the privilege to help hundreds of students with everything from college applications and essays to Creative Writing and Calculus, not to mention the GRE, GMAT, LSAT, MCAT, ASVAB, and AP and SAT II subject tests, like Literature, Statistics, Physics, Biology, and Chemistry as well.
I absolutely love writing, of course, so I can teach you how to write an action scene or listen to a poem.
Simeon has been an absolutely invaluable resource for my SAT prep. His encouragement is appropriately supplemented by challenging material and (appropriately) challenging expectations. He manages to make studying for the SAT fun rather than a laborious task and I could not recommend him more.

Simon has somehow inspired my granddaughter to work really hard to prepare for her SATs. She is finding studying fun again, but more importantly, she is once again more confident about her intelligence and her ability to learn. His style and quirky humor is a perfect match for my granddaughter.
Chemistry doesn't have to be stressful and boring! I possess the necessary competence to better your overall understanding of chemistry, prepare for quizzes and tests and help you with homeworks.

I love Junia's teaching style, she is very thorough and helps you understand why you are doing and saying what! I have learned so much during the few online live classes that I have taken with her. I've tried other instructors as well but her sessions are best for me! You can tell she has the heart and passion for truly helping others succeed. She motivates me to do better!
I can make a hard or boring subject easy and enjoyable to learn. My priority is student success - I work to make it happen. My ability comes from extensive experience, a history of student success, and personal achievement in the field.
Having trouble with a subject? Whether you want to work on improving your grade or aiming for your next 4.0, I'm here to help. From simple to complex, we'll work on it in a way that makes sense to you and allows you to be successful in your class.
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.

"Hector was easily the most friendly and helpful instructor I've had. He was very patient with me and was willing to explain everything in clear detail, st
ep by step. He was also very energetic when teaching, which made Chemistry a lot more enjoyable. He made sure I understood concepts before moving on, and respected my pace of learning. I would highly recommend Hector!"
"Caring, Precise, Knowledgeable, Wise. Time extremely well spent with the Professor."
"Irfan is an outstanding tutor that I highly recommend. In less than an hour, he had my son understanding the concepts of chemistry that were frustrating
him. Even though we were in different time zones, Irfan made sure to accommodate our schedule. While I originally had doubts about the effectiveness of web tutoring, I can honestly state that Irfan made it effective by using screenshare. Irfan also went out of his to share web links that would help my son with the chemistry issues they were working on. Again, I would highly recommend Irfan if you are looking for a chemistry tutor! We will be using him again I am sure!"
"Jairo has helped me develop my chemistry skills significantly. He doesn't just teach me how to study chemistry, but how to study for classes in general! I
took Chemistry 1 and 2 with him and he helped me get excellent marks in both of them."
"Loved every minute of my session. Akib keeps it so real. She helped me see the gaps in my lab and also assisted my in reshape my knowledge. Best Chemistry
tutor. Planning to reschedule for Chemistry 2."
"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."
"Akib is an excellent tutor. He is patient. He focused on the concept and explained clear step by step in the session. I understand the method and construc
tor for Java much better after our session. Thank you for help. Highly recommended."
"Julia was very organized and well informed about chemistry. She was so much help. I would definitely use her again."
"Colin provided me with tutoring for chemistry, via FaceTime. Over the semester he was very flexible with my off-peak time schedules, and was EXTREMELY pat
ient to my questions. Using Colin for tutoring helped my grades and provided an overall great value. Thanks Colin!"
