With a degree in English Literature I have studied English and British Literature my entire academic career. I know how to help you confidently navigate and come to a more complete and nuanced understanding of what you are reading, the main morals/motifs of the piece, and inspire you to develop your own bold and unique opinions on what you are studying or reading.

Since 2017 I have been assisting students with both American and British Literature in standard college prep high school classes, AP courses, core college courses, as well as advanced Bachelors and Masters level courses.

Nick worked absolutely miracles with my very-reluctant-to-learn 13 year old boy. He kept him engaged and built a real relationship of trust - and helped my son grow as a writer, reader, and editor. I absolutely recommend Nick as a fantastic teacher and tutor.

I was a beginner wanting to learn some Brazilian guitar: samba, bossa nova, etc. Billy was great for that as a very accomplished guitarist of that genre. He is very engaging and enthusiastic. He was patient with me in working on the difficult chords and strumming that this type of music requires. Having literally, "written the book", he had an organized approach. I also enjoyed his humor and occasional stories about guitarist he has know. Acho que ele tem Jeito para ensinar violao.

Hello there! My name is Lauren, and I'm an NYC-based violinist with over 15 years of experience teaching violin. I earned my BM and MM degrees from Eastman School of Music in Violin Performance and perform regularly at venues such as Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center.

As a teacher, I adapt my teaching methods on the spot to introduce and reinforce concepts in a patient, enthusiastic, and creative manner tailored to each student. In addition to equipping my students with proper violin technique, students are empowered and develop their communication skills and confidence while fostering a lasting curiosity for learning and a genuine love for the imaginative and expressive capabilities of music.

Lessons generally focus on four major areas: scales, etudes, ensemble parts (orchestra and chamber music), and solo repertoire. Music theory and ear-training activities supplement work in these areas. A portion of lesson time is also devoted to preparing students for ...

About Lauren

In addition to my teaching, I maintain an international career as a performer. I've performed at festivals such as Venice Biennale, Acht Brücken, Newport Jazz, Beijing Modern Music Festival, and Lincoln Center. I've worked with artists and composers such as Ambrose Akinmusire, Richard Carrick, C

FANTASTIC TEACHER! Lauren taught me for 2 years as an adult beginner and I could not have asked for a better experience She is so patient, kind and encouraging. During our time I believe I made tremendous progress with her instruction even though halfway though we had to switch to remote lessons because of Covid. Phenomenal person and gifted teacher!!

Thank you Ms. Lauren for helping me grow as a violinist. You made the lesson so enjoyable and I found the notes that you made for me so helpful for my weekly practice. I wasn't sure how online lessons would be during the pandemic, but you made it so easy to follow along the lesson over Zoom and shared notes over the screen which made it so much easier to learn. Thank you for helping me practice for my audition pieces for which I got accepted for 2 different orchestras. You were always very positive and so patient throughout and taught me fun tricks and ways to make my weekly practice better. Thank you!

Lauren has been an amazing teacher and mentor. Her teaching technique and talent has made a huge difference in my teenage daughter's musical journey.

Mary is very kind, friendly, understanding, and polite. She is extremely encouraging, and believes in her students! It is usually very hard for me to push past my limits, but with Mary I felt much more confident to do so! But she knows when to tell you to stop. She is very clear, and I learned a lot from her.

"Guiseppe is patient and is able to motivate and empower you to want to draw more and more. His lessons are concise and very clear. He knows tips and tricks that make the process much easier than most beginners make it on themselves. He alone won't make you a great artist but he makes it so you want to practice and that's what will make you better. By far the best money I have ever spent on Takelessons.com."
