Weehawken, NJ

View Full Profile

I currently work for and have been extensively trained by The VIPKID organization where, over the internet, I teach children from China to speak English. I have won praise from both my students and their parents for my empathetic and patient approach.

About Amy
I have been a voice, acting, and teacher of creative arts for over 25 years. My background includes ten years of classical training with Maestro Julio Berrocal, as well as vocal training through the Feldekrais approach with Marcy Lindhiemer. In acting I have studied with renowned Stanislavsky scholar Sonia Moore and Master acting teacher of the Strasberg Method, Marcia Haufrecht. I received a B.A. For comparative literature and creative writing at the State University of New York at Purchase and I am currently studying for a masters in social work at Walden University.
I believe, within all of us, Is the ability to express something distinctive and original. I work to help the student discover their individual and unique voice, weather it be through singing, acting or writing. I share with my students tools to gain the ability and con
fidence to achieve their goals. I empathize deeply with the challenges students may face when pursuing a life in the creative and performing arts, having worked professionally in those arena's for most of my adult life. I believe, it is the teachers job to respect each students individual process of learning.
My students have gone on to become recording artists, Broadway performers, movie actors, blues and cabaret artists and published writers.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice
I am an empathetic teacher, sensitive to the students individual process of learning. My singing lessons usually start with breathing and relaxation exercises. Vocal exercise come next, then when the student is fully warmed up, we will begin to work on songs. It is important that the student be part of the process of picking material since the more they personally respond to the material the more apt they are to be engaged in their lessons and the more quickly they will learn. After three to six months they will understand the fundamentals of breathing and relaxation and its importance to proper vocal training. They will have begun the process of extending their range and will understand the principles of performance in song.
Acting
As an acting teacher and coach, I tailor my classes to the needs of each student. I utilize improvisatory and sensory techniques to help unleash spontaneity. I also encourage the students to use their personal experiences as a way to access a full range of emotions. I enjoy working with the student on script analysis, so as to discover the underlying motivations of the character the student is working on.
Creative and Lyric Writing
I use prompts as a way to get the student writing. Often, I will ask the student to write for stretches of time without editing themselves. It is important to unleash imagination before beginning the process of editing. Many times it is the unexpected that is the must compelling.

*** Studio Equipment ***
home- 10 minutes away from Manhattan with piano, seating for parents
-practice studio seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a piano, cd/mp3 player and an large library of songbooks to work from. The student should bring sheet music of songs they want to work on and a recording device.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching how to sing rock, pop, musical theater, jazz, and blues without hurting the voice as well as method acting instruction.

Amy is a truly incredible teacher and person. All of her students love her and those I've referred have thanked me profusely for the introduction. My daughter has studied voice with Amy for a number of years and after just the first lesson, the improvement in her technique and confidence was remarkable. Amy can bring out the best in anyone's voice. She is encouraging and nurturing and provides the safe and positive relationship anyone would want to have with their teacher.

I have been successfully teaching ESL for many years now. I received my TESOL certification from Teachers College, Columbia University and I also have my BEST Plus Certification. I love teaching ESL because it allows me to hone my English and teaching skills, while also giving me the opportunity to meet people from all over the world. I am constantly working to discover the most unique and effective teaching methods possible.

About Abby
Hi!

I am a certified ESL teacher and academic tutor. I have experience teaching all levels of English, including English for the workplace. I have taught ESL speaking and writing classes at St. John's University; Teachers College, Columbia University; the New Americans Welcome Center; as well as through numerous private organizations. I also tutor students who need help with English/Social Studies/Literature classes, AP English classes, the REGENTS and the SAT.

I hold a BA in Media Studies and an MA in Middle-Eastern Studies. Therefore, if you need any help writing papers in the arts/humanities/history, I would be happy to help out. Prior to working as an ESL teacher, I worked in publishing as a literary assistant/ online editor and had great success editing manuscripts, papers, and even blogs.

As far as teaching is concerned, I
genuinely enjoy helping others and try to make my classes/ sessions as communicative and engaging as possible. Tutoring is a refreshing experience for me since I learn something new from my students each and every day.

Learning is just a matter of perspective; finding new ways to look at and explore the world around you. I look forward to meeting you and exploring together!

Abby is a great teacher. I was lucky to find her on this website. She genuinely cares about her students and wants them to improve their language skills. She is very friendly and easy to work with. She let you choose a topic or suggests a topic that you might like it. We have been focusing on my speaking and writing skills. I have made a big progress in just over a year. I highly recommend Abby !

Abby is a really attentive teacher, she has been a big help to English. Besides the weekly lessons, we also worked on some articles for my blog and for my portfolio site. She was really involved and she had a lot of original and creative ideas. Working with her is a surprisingly efficient experience for me. Thanks to her, my English knowledge got better earlier than I expected. In addition, she is a really
caring person, and she always has new ideas about how to improve. She also pays attention for her students personal interests and prepares individual materials for each lesson.

Despite my education and experience, I also understand how to teach and learn language because this is exactly what I have been doing since I was 5. I can promise that after first class I will be able to see what we should work on. I have been collecting teaching materials for years, therefore the classes won't be boring :) I believe that one speaks freely when he talks about his areas of interest and this is why I always try to personalize my classes. I am flexible when it comes to the schedule. Hence, do now wait! Contact me and let's learn some English!

About Magdalena
My teaching history started after I earned Bachelor Degree in English language. First, I just had a few private students in order to get some extra cash (student life ;)). Then I realized how much happiness it brings to my life and I started working with 3 different private schools. After I obtained my Master Degree in English linguistics I also started working for a private kindergarten as an 'English nanny'.

I believe that one never stops learning a language and this is why I decided to move to the USA to get familiarize with the teaching approaches and methodology as well as to live the language and its culture. Being a teacher for me is not only sharing my knowledge about the language but also gaining the knowledge my students are willing to give me. I was surprised myself how much I knew about the interests and mortgages when I was
a tutor in Deutsche Bank in Warsaw :)

I have 4 year experience as a ELT teacher. My student were both children and adults and I always found a common ground with every one of them. Since I mastered in English linguistics, definitely grammar and speaking (pronunciation) are my favorite areas of the language.

I've been teaching English for 3 years and my students have gone from total beginner to intermediate level. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to introduce yourself and speak about basic conversational subjects and as time goes on you'll be able to speak about many more specific topics. I can work with you on your written and oral understanding skills as well as written and oral producing. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

“I've tried to learn English for a long time and, though I learned a big amount of words , I wasn't able of having a short conversation with nobody. Teacher Beverly have been making a great job by identifying my difficulties and then working hard straight on it at abslutely enjoyable online classes. I'm really happy because in a few time I've improved my English skills as I've never did before, nevertheless I'm sure that there are so much to be learnt from her yet.”

Do you want to improve your English? I can help! I have worked with a variety of international students over the past four years and have helped them further their reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills with engaging lesson plans. I am confident my education, experience, and friendly personality will meet your tutoring needs. I look forward to hearing from you!

About Rachel
Hi, I'm Rachel and I would love to become your tutor! After receiving a Bachelor's degree in English Literature, I spent a year teaching ESL to freshmen and sophomores at a university in Harbin, China. I then spent two years teaching English literature to middle school students in a private school in New York City. I also just finished a Master's in Education program specializing in English Language Teaching in England while tutoring high school students in English literature through Tutor Doctor. I have also done independent tutoring and last summer I taught a six-week long course for SAT Reading and Writing.

What I love the most about tutoring is getting to experience students having a "light bulb" moment, when the topics that once confused and/or frustrated them begin to make sense. I strive to help students achieve their goals wit
h an encouraging demeanor and engaging lesson plans. Please do not hesitate to contact me and schedule a lesson if you're interested!

I utilize technologies, pop culture(movies, tv shows, music), literature and elements from real-life situation Into my teaching so that English won't be dull.

Let's be friend and nail English!

About Danyu
Hi future students, my name is Danyu. I.have a bachelor degree in English and I recently graduated from NYU and had my master degree in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).

I started my teaching career by volunteering in a educationally undeserved school in Beijing. Until recently, I gained more experiences from teaching in public schools in NYC.

I can be a nerd sometimes but I'm fun and easygoing. I love New York City and I love delivering my knowledge in English language to people in need. I hope you can join me to explore English as a second language and discover NYC so that you are able to overcome difficulties academically and able to be a cool New Yorker.
