About Ben

Music Lessons & Tutoring

Welcome to my studio, where I will instruct you in your musical and academic endeavors. What sets me apart is that I offer diverse instruction in two different areas. In my music studio, I give lessons in piano, violin, guitar, and composition. In my tutoring center, I specialize in Latin (learning from scratch and tutoring). I instruct students of all ages at different skill levels.

My in-studio lessons are given on a grand piano.

Education

BM Music Composition -- Ohio State University, Autumn 2012
BA Classics (Greek and Latin) -- Ohio State University, Autumn 2012
Classics Fellowship -- Indiana University, 2013-2014
Piano Training: Collegiate lessons from Steven Glaser and private lessons from George Haddad

Accomplishments

As a high school senior, under the tutelage of OSU Profess

or Emeritus and world-renowned pianist George Haddad, I performed the first movement of Shostakovich's Second Piano Concerto with the chamber orchestra.

I performed different self-composed pieces at seven OSU Composers' Workshops and won the Audience Favorite Award at the Johnstone Woodwinds Composition Competition in 2012. My Senior Composition Recital was performed on October 25, 2012. It showcased several of my three-movement works: string quartet, clarinet solo, set of classical songs for piano and voice, set of pop songs for piano and voice. Interspersed with these were two solo piano pieces and a duet for piano and violin.

My background makes me a knowledgeable and effective tutor. I was valedictorian at Delaware Hayes High School in 2009 and received OSU's Maximus Scholarship based on my ACT and SAT scores.

Mirian is a great teacher! Super nice and funny. She takes the time to converse with you in Spanish without making you feel overwhelmed. She makes sure you're at the correct level and tailors lessons accordingly. I would definitely recommend Mirian if you wanted to learn Spanish in a welcoming environment.

I love my instructor - no problems with her at all. The issue is the audio quality. Maybe it's just my connection but it cuts out about 25% of the time making it very difficult to understand and follow along.

About Elena

My name is Elena. I am very pleased to welcome you to my French lessons! I have been teaching French for all age groups (beginning from 3 years old kids to the adult advanced level) for more than 20 years and I am really happy to provide my students with the experience and skills I have acquired for all the years.

I have worked with the kids of all the age groups creating cooperative learning, hands-on and minds-on approach. I also participated in "Write-to-Read" program in California and used these methods to encourage reading/writing at home, parent involvement, and listening/speaking/writing skills. I always try to create an individual approach to every child to develop his/her unique language skills and personal perception.

I am a professionally credentialed and certified teacher from California state and I am happy to share my

experience and my love for French with all students and their families.

Sincerely,

Elena

Andy embodies all that a good teacher should be. He mixes the art of emotional connection to the science. After 5 hours teaching sessions with Andy, and without having any prior knowledge on accounting, I felt confident in the fundamentals. He is excellent in helping someone thoroughly understand the subject matter. He is patient, flexible and highly professional and I would highly recommend Andy to anyone seeking a tutor.

About Connor

Hello! I am a Mandarin teacher of many years, having taught in a variety of settings, from 1-on-1 tutoring, to immersion schools. As a Chinese-American, I have great tools in place to help English speakers best learn the challenging language of Mandarin Chinese. As someone who is bilingual, as well as a teacher of both Mandarin and English, I have a great understanding of both languages, thus am able to help bridge any gaps between the two.

I took about 6 months of Mandarin lessons with Connor, and myself and my Taiwanese family members all notice how far I’ve come. In just these months, I have come much closer than I could have expected to my goal of being able to understand basic Mandarin conversations. Connor personalized my lessons to focus on the Taiwanese variations spoken by my family. He is not only knowledgeable in language and culture, but it is also very apparent that he has learned how to teach. He is patient and moves at a pace that fits with my schedule as an adult learner. I absolutely recommend him!

My child worked with Connor of FrostForward Learning as a tutor for Mandarin. Connor was excellent; he has both the necessary substantive knowledge and the interpersonal skills to work well with a teenager. He is professional, reliable, and easy to work with.
