"Phonics" are the basic foundation of all alphabet-based writing. For learning to read English, students learn best when taught a combination of phonics and sight-words. (English is full of words that are NOT spelled phonetically; however, the rules of phonics do have a definite place in learning to read English.)
With beginning readers, I incorporate songs and rhyme to help children hear and understand phonics. I also use rhythm/percussion to help children distinguish syllables.

About Linda
*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not typically provide any equipment - but I am willing to select and purchase books for the students to learn from (cost of books to be reimbursed by the student/parent) when requested to do so.

I am also willing to provide stick-on note-names for the keyboard, for young children.

The students must have their own instruments, and provide a folder for sheet music and notes/instructions.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar, I specialize in the following styles: jazz, rock, blues, folk, bluegrass, and children's songs.
Piano: I prefer electronic keyboard to acoustic piano, but am happy to teach beginning students on a regular piano as well. I teach note-reading, playing by ear, and theory, with en emphasis on rock, pop, and folk music. I include arranging, chord theory, and use of the many features of an elec
tronic keyboard, in the lessons.
Bass Guitar: I teach rock, pop, funk, and country music on bass.
Banjo: I teach bluegrass, country, and some blues and rock music. I can also teach a bit of old-timey frailing/clawhammer style.
English and Reading: I am highly qualified, to tutor/teach English (spoken, written, and reading comprehension) to both native English speakers and to those learning it as a second language.
*** I am particularly good at working with children who have a.d.h.d. and other learning disabilities!

Linda is easily the most patient and welcoming person I've ever worked with. She has incredible knowledge over a vast array of topics and she is eager to share with others. This, in my opinion, is the most important quality of all teachers. Her lessons have proved a great way to build a solid base in my field of interest. as well as providing me with a well rounded and wonderful mentor that I'm sure to rely on for many other lessons in the future- banjo or otherwise!

Bonnie started piano at age 4, clarinet by third grade, and oboe in the 8th grade. In High School, she played oboe, bagpipes, and saxophone in the jazz band winning the Best Jazz Soloist Award. She also won the Young Artist Competition and played with the Tampa Symphony. While attending USF, she continued to perform with the Tampa Symphony and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree.

Using several curriculum for phonics, and reading, while Homeschooling, is why she is offering this service through Take Lessons.

Through homeschooling and her years of teaching background, your students can expect LOTS of PATIENCE because Bonnie relates to each student and how they learn best on an individual level. Every student has a different way they learn, and Bonnie quickly tunes in to their way of learning.

About Laura
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, and a Master's Degree in Secondary Science Education-Biology. I am certified in the state of Florida. The first lesson will consist of diagnostics so that I can better tailor my teaching to your child. For my reading students I assist with phonics and comprehension. I use high interest text selections to ensure that the child will actually enjoy what they are reading, in addition to improving their skills. Students who require math instruction, I like to revisit prerequisites. I find that mistakes are made in the lower levels of math, which makes learning math at the higher levels more difficult. If children need science instruction, I can help with re-teaching the material and clarifying any confusing or complicated concepts to ensure the material is clear and easily understood. My met
hods for language arts and history are similar to science.

I work as an Interventionist with refugees, especially in phonics, to help assist with their command of the English language. Confidence is key and a great relationship with a tutor can get you there! Phonics is a significant part of learning English; confidence with speaking can come alongside patience and practice with Phonics!

Kristine has a gentle touch and puts my daughter at ease with her math struggles. We have tried several other tutors before settling on Kristine. As parents, we have a lot of anxiety about our daughter's school performance as well. Not only has Kristine helped bring up my daughter's grades and confidence, she has helped guide us on how to best use free resources at school to help our daughter. She has been instrumental in turning a negative experience with our daughter's school into a positive one. I do view her as an Academic Coach with a variety of skill sets. We have recommended her to others and have received similar excellent reviews.

I have good resources to help develop phonic skills. I use cards to reinforce sounds of the alphabet and worksheets that practice specific sounds and connects them with a story using the same sounds taught. I also have a fun game that have students building words by combining sounds together which further develops phonic skills.

About Regina
I'm an ESL at an adult school and currently an MA student. I graduated with a BA in Education from Seton Hall University. I worked with various age groups while earning my Bachelor's. I did four internships in different public schools in grades K-12 as well as student taught in a K-5 setting. I also have a lot of experience teaching adults. The subjects I teach are ESL and Music. Both of these subjects are my favorite to teach because they are very unique and fun to do. I enjoy it when my students are excited to learn and find new talents within themselves that they never knew they had. Some of the hobbies I like to do outside of teaching are crochet, learning new languages such as Spanish, Japanese, and Korean.
