About Melissa

Hi there! I'm Melissa, and I am a fashion design and sewing teacher on Staten Island. I have been teaching children and adults how to sew since 2014. I've been sewing since I was a child, and I've been teaching since 2007.

I am mostly self-taught, and that, coupled with my youth, gives me a unique perspective when teaching. My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson- almost all of my students finish the first hour with a handy drawstring bag to keep their new sewing supplies in. I have a specific sewing curriculum for the first 3-5 lessons that helps lay a groundwork for making more exciting things.

After we finish those steps, I work individually with students to make whatever they would like, from Halloween costumes to memory pillows to peplum tops. The choice is

yours. I'm not the kind of teacher that is going to make you spend hours mastering a straight hem because frankly, that's really boring. I want you to learn while working on projects you care about

My experience includes;

-I worked in a tutoring school teaching kids from ages 5-17 in all subjects.
-I designed a program called Creative Studios for creative writing, fashion design and fine art. I taught these subjects to students aged 8-12.
-I teach sewing and fashion design (including fashion drawing) to various students in a one on one format.
-I teach fashion design and sewing to tweens, teens, and adults at SI Dance and Arts Center
-I taught at the Harlem Educational Activities Fund Saturday Academy
-I am pursuing a Masters in Adolescent Education in Social Studies

Please note that I am located in Staten Island, NY. I may be able to accommodate some Brooklyn or Woodbridge students, but please inquire before booking.

My studio space is located at Staten Island Dance and Art Center. It's a lovely, artsy space with bright yellow walls, six sewing machines, and 2 professional mannequins.

Hello fellow clarinet players! I have been playing the clarinet for fourteen years, and I would like to share some of the knowledge that I have picked up along the way from many famous and professional clarinetists alike.

I've had a few teachers in my time, but I have to say, Brendan has been the best. He has made me a better player, and a better person. I look forward to our lessons every week, and I learn something new every time.

Aron G.

Spring Valley, NY 10977


About Aron

I offer individual tutoring for all middle school, high school and college mathematics, physics and computer science classes and all standardized exams. I come with more than 8 years of teaching and tutoring experience, pedagogical know-how, educational resources, and am always professional. I welcome any interested parties to contact me regarding my services.
A little about myself. I was enrolled in a top mathematical high school and won multiple mathematical olympiads starting at a young age. I graduated university with honors and the highest departmental distinction. While at the university I served as a teaching assistant and tutored other students, because I love to explain math and help students understand it.

Mathematics and teaching are still my big passions. I’ve taught math classes at a local school as well as tutored studen

ts of all ages and all levels. I am committed to helping students succeed in any math course.

As highly as Dave's previous reviews spoke of him, he still managed to exceed any expectations I had. He was calm, reassuring, and it was immediately apparent just how comfortable he is teaching small children. Dave managed to hold the attention of my 5 year old for the entire lesson, and left my son excited about learning and confident that he can do it! I feel very fortunate to have found such a great teacher for my child.

About Craig

Welcome students and parents: You may not know it yet, but stumbling upon my page may change your life for the better. With me, your immersion into the world of science and education may open up opportunities that may alter your children's future path.

I have tutored students at the junior/high school, and college levels. As a teaching assistance for undergraduates at the Ivy league, the Univ of Pennsylvania, I teach pupils to dissect problems and challenges into manageable components. This was my stepping stone into a professorial role. I am originally from NYC, and attended Stuyvesant, so I also help tutor students with the SSAT and SHSAT. Knowledge and understanding alone does not make a good educator, it is the ability to transmit such skills which is remarkable.

I have a Master's of Science of Biochemical Engineering from the

University of Pennsylvania, and a Bachelor's of Science in biomedical sciences from King's College, University of London.

Craig's teaching is quite impressive. I'm a math teacher myself, but when I caught moments of him teaching my daughter struggling in algebra 2, I thought his approach was better! His instruction is excellent and she is now doiing great in Algebra 2.

Craig has greatly helped my daughter struggling in chemistry! She now consistently achieves in the 90's. Without him, she would not have found an appreciation for chemistry and has now decided to sign up for AP Chem. His explanations are clear and easy to understand.

Craig is a marvelous tutor. For my twins, he brought up their MATH SAT 130 and 150 points respectively. With my middle schooler he has helped bring up her SSAT to the 94% (percentile) getting her into our top choice. He is thorough and meticulous tutor teaching them how to find and fix their own mistakes.

About Michi

Despite all the knowledge they may have and all the "how-to" information at their fingertips, many people live their lives as if they were powerless and completely at the mercy of external circumstances. It is true that there are many things that we cannot change. However, even if our circumstances remained the same and the only thing we were able to change was our minds, it could open up a whole new world of opportunity. That is the core reason I decided to become a coach. My name is Michi and my mission is to help individuals become aware and make use of the one, incredibly powerful tool everyone has at their disposal: their own mind.

I earned a B.A. in Philosophy, an M.A. in Psychology, and am currently pursuing a doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology. I also have a background in music. My approach to coaching is heavily influenced

by all of these disciplines, but what makes it unique is that it looks at self-development through the lens of creativity. More specifically, I view the process of pursuing your goals and navigating life's challenges primarily as a creative one. To me, the creative process is a cycle of goal-driven work, creative breakthroughs, and creation (bringing your vision into reality). In music, this might mean noodling around on the piano until you come up with something you like and turn it into a song. In life, this might mean thinking about what you want and what you can do to achieve your goal, and then taking the necessary action steps to succeed. Regardless of the scenario, I view the creative process almost as a natural law: If you put in the work, you will have breakthroughs and you will bring your vision into reality; it is simply a matter of time, discipline, and perseverance. Thus, much of my work with clients revolves around fostering their trust in the creative process.

Practically speaking, this means that, within the context of assisting them with their individual needs, I intend to help all clients:
(1) Shift from an "I can't" mentality to a "how can I?" mentality.
(2) Get to a place where achieving their goals becomes a matter of "when," not "if."

"After speaking to multiple tutoring companies, we discovered Matthew. Matthew was very professional and made my son feel comfortable. They had a total of
5 tutoring sessions covering Math, English, Science and Reading. My son took the ACT after his tutoring sessions and scored a 23. We were very pleased with the progress our son made by going from an ACT score of 19 to 23 after only 5 sessions with Matthew. I would highly recommend Matthew J. Horwich to anyone needing tutoring."

"I am a sixth grade student, and Julia has been a very good math tutor to me for about 3 years already, and I plan to keep going to her for a while. I am s
eeing lots of improvement at school, and my MAP and other test scores have increased greatly since the start of Julia helping me out this year. Two things that are great about Julia as a tutor, are that she never, ever yells or gets frustrated when I don’t understand how to do something. Also, she takes as much time as needed to explain a hard problem to me, and she does that very clearly, until I fully understand how to do that problem. My overall opinion of Julia is that she is one of the best math tutors out there, because I had to go through many other tutors to find a good one, and Julia is the best."

"I initially reached out to Rod for Algebra 1 review because I felt that my daughter lacked a solid foundation in algebra. However, after a couple of sessi
ons, we have decided to switch gears toward geometry with Rod’s recommendation. Throughout the geometry lessons, algebra practice was incorporated. I am happy that not only did Rod tailor his lessons to my daughter’s goals but also he gave her a lot of encouragement. My daughter found it extremely helpful that she got to explain and discuss with Rod, which made lessons interactive and real learning. Now going back to school, my daughter feels confident, thanks to Rod!"
