when I made an appointment, I asked if Sergey was familiar with my camera and they said yes. It seemed new to him. But after talking about my fijifilm x100F, I am returning the camera. So overall I did like Sergey and look forward to my next Hour

Sergey taught me about everything I had questions about and also offered suggestions in helping me to better determine the best way to find the career path that is right for me. Rather than hard and fast lessons, it was an opportunity to spend time, one on one, with a professional and learn from his experiences what works and what doesn't.

As a teacher my goal is to figure out how you learn best and make the process more effective and enjoyable.

Birmingham, AL

I've been teaching Russian for 5 years. Within the first lessons, you'll know alphabet and how to greet people in Russian.
From lesson to lesson you'll increase vocabulary and after a few lessons your knowledge will be enough to read short stories. I use online workbooks, textbooks. I have a list of websites. They let students learn grammar, listen to dialogues, watch movies. I love working with students and can't wait to start this journey through Russian grammar and literature with you.

About Galina
My name is Galina. I am a native speaker of Russian language and a professional teacher. I have 20 years experience of teaching in Russian Schools. First 10 years of my experience was teaching in Elementary School, and next 10 years I was an English and Russian teacher. I hold a bachelor's degree in linguistics and childhood education. I was teaching English as a foreign language to Russian students and have excellent tutoring experience in teaching Russian to English speaking people. I can teach all levels of the Russian language and I am really excited to teach students of any age. I have been a teacher all my life and I simply love teaching, because during the process I can see how my students move forward. Tutoring gives me the opportunity to continue doing what I always loved to do. I am a dedicated tutor-strict, but kind. I teach a
dults and children one-to-one, in groups or online.

Greenfield, NH

This is my first language, and I can help you learn it. We will carry on conversations, or I can help translate anything for you.

About Alejandro
In 2018 I moved to the Peterborough, NH area and am offering private piano lessons here. For most of my professional career I have been creating music and sound for educational computer games and toys for major companies. Prior to my move, I taught private piano lessons to children and adults in the Buffalo, NY area for eight years. Some of my students have gone on to win awards and continue in a musical career. We will always be preparing for successful performances of selections from classic to modern repertoire.

My approach is student focused. I adapt the curriculum to the needs of each student. I maximize the student's strengths and interests to inspire each student to fulfill their unique potential.

Lessons will include:
1. proper body and hand posture,
2. exercises and scales,
3. at least three pieces from the literature
,
4. analysis and historical context for each piece,
5. development of techniques and artistic expression,
6. music theory and history,
7. preparation for performance and, if appropriate, competitions.

Benefits of studying music:
Enjoyment of social and cultural gatherings
Appreciation of art, history, and culture
Development of good study habits
Strengthening of math and language skills
Emotional and spiritual fulfillment.

More about me:
As a contractor and as an employee, I have written music and did sound design for Rosetta Stone, Fisher-Price, Rochester Science Museum, Fujitsu, Broderbund Software, and others. I have taught music subjects in colleges and universities. I continue to pursue projects for media and live performance.

I earned a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Stanford University in composition and computer music. I hold a Master in Arts degree from the same university. I received a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Hartford, Hartt School of Music, in piano and composition. I started my musical training in the pre-college program at the famous Manhattan School of Music, studying piano and composition.

I look forward to helping you learn to the play music on the piano.

I am an adult who took lessons from Alex. I improved greatly from Alex's lessons. Alex is good communicator and listener. My piano playing improved greatly thanks to Alex. And not only that: my understanding of music improved very much. He doesn't show off much, but the scope of his knowledge is amazing.
