About Christy F.

Close

Hello!

I’m excited to work with your child to help improve and enjoy math! When I was in school, math was a struggle for me. I had to learn math in many different ways for it to make sense to me. I had to work hard, and I did!

Because of my growing up and learning how to learn, it has made me passionate to teach and help others. I have taught in pre-schools and been a music teacher for 15+ years.

I’m a strong advocate of learning math. Without having a strong math base, school will be more difficult for kids and less enjoyable. Let’s work together to help your child learn and enjoy math so that their school experience is happier and more productive!

Students are required, by me, to have a subscription to a math site called IXL in order to track student's progress. ixl.com

About Christy
I teach MUSIC, PHOTOGRAPHY, & MATH

MUSIC
I am an independent music instructor. I have trained students in opera, jazz, and contemporary.

I began my piano studies at age eight and began teaching in high school. I have a Bachelor of Arts minor in vocal performance from Brigham Young University.

I have taught hundreds students of various ages and abilities and have been involved in a number of musical groups and productions, such as Opera Scenes, Phoenix Rising, Women's Chorus, and the Cincinnati Women's Group.

My instruction emphasizes a relaxed learning environment with a focus on the student's needs.

I also encourage and teach my students how to take care of their voice and body to avoid strain or injury.

What Students Will Learn:
*Sound, rhythm, and beat
*Figuring out where the notes are on a page of music
*Dy
namics (such as loud and soft)
*Understanding high and low notes
*The importance of regular practice
*Following instructions
*Performing for a teacher (and an audience, in some cases)

Sources for Student Learning:
*Student books
*Handbells (for young children)
*Pictures of notes
*Flashcards
*Videos/songs that help students learn how to read notes

Performances:
*I encourage each student to find at least one opportunity to perform yearly. Whether performing for friends or family, regularly performing for an audience results in tremendous growth!

Student Books Used:
*Piano Adventures
*Suzuki
*Alfred Series

PHOTOGRAPHY
I earned my Visual Arts major in Photography from Brigham Young University.

I have run a photography business for 18 years.

I have taken pictures for weddings, engagements, senior pictures, landscapes, and family portraits.

I focus mostly on what students would like to learn.

How to manually operate a camera is a critical learning emphasis.

If applicable, we'll also talk about how to run a photography business.

MATH
With my kids, I have worked with one child who requires substantial help and another who is several levels above standard. Both have challenged me to research and learn many resources and methods to help them learn and perform math at a high level.

My goal with students is to assess their math proficiency and either help them find new ways to challenge themselves or help them learn how to be more comfortable with math and perform at an appropriate level.

I strongly believe math is critical for success in K-12 and college. My philosophy is if a student is comfortable with math, he or she will be happy at school!

Hello All

I am a very experienced Maths teacher. I have taught maths to kids starting from 5 years old. Maths is something kids have to take interest and understand what they are doing rather than just learning. I take various approaches to make a child understand the concept and then move on to the next level. Maths has to be made interesting and this will make the student develop interest towards the subject.
I hope you all will love studying with me. I am very patient and very friendly with every age.

About Owen M.

Rochester, NY

From experience, math can transition easily from the most frustrating to the most rewarding subjects. It is always a joyful experience for me to see students put 2 and 2 together and arrive at that glorious correct answer.* I have experience working with elementary and high school students, both privately and in volunteer settings.

Whether the focus is on polynomials, trig identities, calculus, or linear algebra, I am here to help. My process is to break everything down and ask the students questions in order to guide them to the solution. I will do everything I can to help facilitate deep understanding and earning that next A!

My ACT score was 35, with a sub-score of 36 on math. I took Calculus my sophomore year and earned a 5 on the AP Calc - BC test.

Fun fact: In addition to being a math major at the University of Rochester, I'm also studying the Double Bass at Eastman School of Music. If you or your student have any interest in music lessons for upright bass or bass guitar, I ...

About Owen
Here's a bit about myself:

Since 2016, I've been teaching math to high school and elementary students. I've always loved it. With teaching, I feel that I've grown more patient and more thoughtful in my general life. I recommend that anyone with the means try their hand at teaching. It is a particularly rewarding thing in and of itself.

The summer of 2016, I wrote the music, conducted, and acted as musical director for a full-scale musical entitled Get Hooked: A Pirate Musical. Currently, I'm working on a second full-length project, entitled Nuclear Love, that is set to be produced and performed in the spring of 2020.

I also have experience doing rock and jazz gigs on my electric bass. If you or student is also interested in learning these styles, I'd be more than happy to oblige!

My favorite books are Zen and the Art of Motorc
ycle Maintenance, The Giver, Ishmael, 1984, The Chess Garden, Invisible Man, Labyrinths, and Life of Pi.

My favorite quote is "infinity and beyond." Granted, there is no such thing as 'beyond' - unless you're referring to the power set of infinity. Honestly, I just love infinity. I could talk about the infinite hotel and fractals forever (pun noted and kept).

I've been taking French classes for about 5 years now. If you're interested in having a charming conversation in slightly broken French, je suis ton mec!

There are a few things more inspiring to than helping a student triumphantly arrive at a solution. Or watching them nail a big shift that was giving them trouble the week before. Learning anything comes with struggle, with difficulty, and I've certainly had my share of practice frustration. It's important to understand that such an experience is part of the process. I have no doubt that with the right ethic, the right teacher, and a desire to learn, anything can be achieved.

About Professor (Kair) R.

Close

I teach mathematics from a graphics, as well as real world perspective. Students learn to understand the underlying elements of a concept and then use that understanding to solve both numerical and verbal problems. I prefer to facilitate instruction basic mathematics. If one has the foundation, then everything else is apricots and sprinkles math wise. I prefer to assist students who need help understanding basic algebra and basic geometry. I am not averse to working with elementary level mathematics for pre-secondary level students. I have worked with pre-schoolers to college freshman in need of assistance with College Algebra. That is where math fun lies for me-- in helping to set the groundwork.

About Professor (Kair)
I love to teach and especially love to teach math and writing. I like to focus on mathematics, which to me is like writing, because students sometimes think that if they are good at one (for example, writing) then they cannot be good at the other. I am here to tell you that you can understand and be good at both. I teach both. My writing (as well as literature and speech communication students) learn from me and get to think mathematically while my math students get to think like writers (everything is planned and is a process). It may sound complicated or strange, but it really is not. Math is pure fun! Math is about patterns, and colours, and music, and shapes, and just about everything that makes ideas come to life! Like my writing students embark upon a journey toward being successful in an area in which you may not have had much succ
ess in the past. Hold your breath. Exhale with a smile. Dive into the world of math and math sense!
