My daughters first online lessons and a wonderful experience! Ruben is very engaging, friendly and knowledgeable. He is easy to contact, accommodating and quick to respond to questions. Would highly recommend!

My 9-year-old daughter and 11-year-old son have been taking uke lessons for 3 weeks now and they really enjoy Ruben's style of teaching; so do we. He provides a great combination of making it fun while also really teaching them the foundations of music. They are already reading and writing some music and they enjoy doing their music homework. Most important, they are having fun at the lessons and while practicing at home.

Welcome to my studio!

As a teacher, I believe it’s my job to learn along with the student. Each student’s voice is like a fingerprint, completely unique! There is no “one size fits all” approach to discovering your voice, but I would love to help you find the techniques, exercises, and methods that best help you meet your goals!

Our job as singers is to tell a story. From my experience as a performer, I guide my students through the process of creating music that is, not only, technically proficient, but also fun, interesting; and moving.

Singing, in any style or genre, requires a solid foundation rooted in technique, emotional connection, and physical awareness. By helping you cultivate these three things, I aim to help you love your voice and share your talent with the world.

No matter what your singing goals are, you deserve to be confident in your singing! I want to help! Please reach out to me to ask questions, go over policies, or book your first lesson!

I’m excited to

I have started online singing lessons with Michaela 6 months ago and I am located in Europe. I did not expect online lessons to turn out so effective! Learning singing with Michaela is a journey to discover my voice, to learn how to use it properly and freely. She created a great space where I try, improve, and finally grow more and more confident in singing. She provides knowledge as well as good atmosphere, shares tips and focuses on the needs of the student. I wholeheartedly recommend her lessons.
Alexis
Michaela is an excellent teacher, and I highly recommend contacting her if you’re looking to learn about vocal techniques and singing! I started taking voice lessons with Michaela a few months ago and I have learned so much already. Michaela is very patient and has offered so many different tools to help me accomplish my goals. Anytime I start to feel frustrated or like I can’t do something, she offers a different technique to try to correct the problem until we find something that works for me personally. She’s also extremely versatile in her singing ability. Michaela and I have worked on country songs, pop songs; any song and any genre of music that I’ve been interested in learning Michaela has been knowledgeable and helpful with. Michaela is also super easy to get along with and just an overall very kind person which makes working with her even better!
Angela S.
Michaela is such a great teacher. She really cares about the progress of her students and makes sure the student is learning in each lesson. Very easy to work with. Michaela is an exceptional teacher because I can see a lot of improvement with my voice and find it much easier to sing Opera than before. She helped me remove the strain and expanded my range.
Michaela demonstrates exercises very well and helps you understand how singing works from different aspects - how it mechanically works and how you feel different notes and vowels. I could feel improvement very early in my lessons. Michaela can definitely help you learn how to broaden your range and have a rich sound while maintaining healthy voice/vocal cords.

Alex
I absolutely loved taking lessons from James. I was just coming off of a long break from acting when I found him, and I’m so thankful that I did. He gave me the confidence boost that I needed to push onward in my training. Since he has experience in the industry, he was able to tell me (truthfully) what I need to expect when my career takes off someday. That aside, we read through screenplays, did some accent work, improved a bit before every class, and talked about the power of positivity/confidence. I learned a little bit of everything from him. If you’re looking to get started on your path to an acting career, James is definitely your guy! He’ll do whatever he can to prepare you for your crazy journey through the industry.

Algebra is a tough area of study in math, especially when most students are coming from a background in simple computation with numbers. This is when its most important to start thinking of math as language that helps us capture the continuously changing world around us. This is the context to starting thinking in, and what most struggling students miss. In fact, it directly explains the reason for all the variables and letters now found in mathematical relationships. Algebra gives us a brilliant way of manipulating those relationships and in affect an easy way of representing them graphically. My lessons will provide you with the foundational knowledge of algebra that is necessary for all higher levels of math, as the subject builds upon itself.

About Corey

Hi my name is Corey, I'm a computer science major and I am a huge nerd when it comes to math and other subjects of science. I have a strong passion for helping students just like myself excel in their academic goals! I began tutoring once I got back in school. At first it started off as a little

Corey is currently tutoring me in Java, a subject I find very painful to learn. It was difficult to understand my professor's method of teaching, since he dove right into syntax without explaining the foundational piece. As a result, I was not retaining any of it. Corey has in-depth knowledge of why Java works and how it works, which is a good launch point to move to actual programming. Recommend him for anyone who, like me, struggles to understand the basics. He also keeps my interest in a way that makes it not so painful - sometimes bordering on enjoyable!
Kevin
My daughter is high functioning autistic and was struggling with Algebra 1 to the point of nearly failing the class. We tried to work with another tutor but that was unsuccessful due to personality conflict between the tutor and my daughter. Once Corey started tutoring her, with his focus on understanding over memorization, my daughter's grades improved dramatically and she was so much happier. We were extremely happy with Corey's approach to teaching, his work ethic, and his patience and understanding dealing with someone with special needs. We intend to continue lessons with Corey in the fall for the next school year.

What Types of Creative Writing Prompts Work Best for Kids?

Creative prompts encourage imagination and provide a jumping off point for journal entries and stories. Even children who love to write may find it easier to work from a prompt because it gives them an area of focus - and it's fun!
