About Kelvin
I am a highly organized, outcome-driven and motivated professional musician and educator with solid experience in the classroom. For the past 25 years, I have been employed with Amati music academy and seven years on the faculty of University of St Francis.
I am very comfortable with all aspects of the current music syllabus, including teaching musical concepts (such as duration, pitch, dynamics, tone color, texture and structure) as well as performance, composition. I am fully qualified, with a Bachelor of Education in Music, Double Masters in music performance and education from University of Nottingham.
I am proficient in classical, jazz and Celtic fiddle violin and possess solid skills in piano (grade 8-13) Royal conservatory system.
Throughout my teaching career, I have been driven to help students achieve their very best. I str
ongly believe that music has the power to change lives – to enhance the social, cultural and spiritual lives of people, and serve as a profound medium of personal expression. Professional perform experience: The Chicago, Natalie Cole, Smokey Robinson, Three tours with Moody Blues, YoYo Ma etc....
The most important thing I look for in a student is communication skills, as well as talent. I like to nurture students and help identify their individual strengths, which is a key factor in shaping a musical persona that will make its mark both on and offstage. I do not advocate a uniform technique for all students. Physical differences and learning styles are always taken into consideration. Potential is as important to me as early achievements and experience. My goal is to help students become self-sufficient, discriminating artists. I discuss practice techniques often and develop individualized scale routines. I encourage initiative and expressive musicality as well as precision. Above all, music needs to bring obvious joy to the student, regardless of the difficulties.”

Great!! She does a great job with breaking down information to make it easier to understand and learn the content. She wants you to be successful in learning the material. If there is something you do not understand,she will go over it until you comprehend the information. Janalee is a true teacher because she is very patient and understanding when it comes to your learning style.

I must say Janalee is a phenomenal tutor. Her lesson plans are well structured and well thought out. Before studying under her tutelage , I was extremely nervous about taking my GRE. Not only did I pass my exam, I surpassed my own expectations.

Thank you Janalee, you played a pivotal role of my success !!!!

About Tatiana
I am a former German professor from Russia who currently lives in America and tutors full time now Russian and German.

I provide a variety of activities for my lessons so you will never get bored. For example, I will use games, interactive conversational lessons, fun warm up tasks, case studies, and even riddles. We will use authentic materials as well. You will learn conversational skills, formal writing skills, and test taking strategies all in a fun manner.

I have a background as as an experienced lecturer, teacher, and tutor in the field of linguistics (general linguistics, history of linguistics, psycolinguistics, social linguistics, gender studies). Since defending my dissertation, I have continued to do research in gender studies in the field of virtual communication and digital text, especially non-verbal communication, soci
al networks and gender-specific communication. However, I have found that my true passion is helping students in one-on-one lessons.

About Vinit
I am a professional chemical engineer, born and brought up in India, graduated with PhD in chemical engineering from University of Delaware. Picked up cooking early on to satisfy my own deep desire of traditional home food be it dal baati, dal dhokali, dal dhokala, lahasuni aloo sang makka roti, kadi with bajara roti, kaju ker, pachkuta, rabori, mungodi (sorry for using traditional names as there is no real short translation of these into English language)...and did not realize that it had become my passion until my dear family/friends started pointing out repeatedly. Over time my research background has infused some serious curiosity to understand the underlying science behind the art of cooking (do you know what is the secret to delicious Indian food - is it the minimum overlap of flavors in ingredients!!) and have started rethinking th
e recipes e.g. try making bread pakoda (fritter) keeping bread in the inner core and potato paste on outside instead of traditional way of doing it other way round...does it taste better and easier to coat with the wet gram flour for frying??). Cooking for me has become an endless joyful journey filled with learning and experimentation...always refreshing. Now, I try to share/teach my cooking experiences/excursions with others as time permits.

About Roxanne
You may think this is interesting, but I am the owner of a home bakery. I sell baked goods from my home and deliver to my customers...

That's what I do during the day. In the evening, I love to teach young people how to cook. Actually, it doesn't matter how old you are; if you can handle cooking utensils, follow some helpful instruction and read a recipe, you got this!

I come from a family of cooks from way back in the day. I was taught, starting at age 6, how to cook in the kitchen and handle small knives. I had my own special knife for chopping and slicing vegetables and fruits. That's all she would allow me to do for a long while. Then, my mom slowly introduced me to new things, like boiling eggs and making gravy and homemade biscuits. Not much came from a box or can back then. I learned a lot about the foundation of making a wonderf
ul meal...prep work.

It sounds a bit off-putting, but if you invest in a few handy kitchen tools, prep can be pretty easy, and a little fun! That's part of what my students will learn in my classes.

I am a learner. I love to learn! If I'm not learning, I feel half alive. That's why I love cooking and baking. There is always something new to learn and see and do. It's hands-on, and that's my style of learning!

Many people can follow a recipe and cook a pretty good meal, but when it comes to looking into the fridge and the pantry and pulling something together, that's a whole different story. I love creating dishes that make my family wonder where I got the recipe from. When I say, "I just made it up!" That's a good feeling.

I not only want to teach students how to read a recipe and make a meal, I want to teach them some of the science behind cooking; why you should be careful when a recipe calls for salted or unsalted butter; or how to melt chocolate the old-fashioned way!

I'm very excited about taking this journey with each of my students. I love interacting with people and fostering a loving community.

So, come on, let's do this together!
