Peoria, IL

I want to share my love of writing with my students. The written word is still considered to be highly valued in the Unites States and it is essential in everyday life. Obviously what I teach to an elementary child would differ than a college student but reaching a high level of writing ability would be foremost.

About Cathryn
Hello! My name is Cathy and I have been teaching voice (singing) for over 30 years. But don't let that fool you into thinking I'm a stogy old girl who doesn't have a pulse on contemporary music. I teach pop, country, broadway, folk, whatever it is your interested in. I do teach with vocal exercises because without them no changes will be made and that's the whole point right to change your voice? However you do get to sing songs. I teach, so that you will change your voice and succeed in whatever avenue you want. My degree is in Vocal Performance from Northeastern Illinois University and one year of Masters work in Drama from DePaul University.

I also teach ESL, Reading, Writing, History which I have done for the past ten years. I use a variety of techniques since no two people are alike to help you learn English or the Ameri
can lifestyle. I presently teach Caterpillar employees, spouses and children. Let me teach you and see how far we can go.

Thank you.

Cathy is very patient with my 12 year old, she is teaching her the fundamentals of singing and that singing is more than just your voice. I enjoy watching them stretch and do exercises to strength her core. My daughter also enjoys that Cathy
lets her have a choice in the songs they work on. My daughter also says, "she is fun and funny!"

Cathryn is very kind, quirky, and welcoming. My 10 year old daughter adores her! Her love of singing and enthusiasm for it is contagious. She has used many teaching techniques with my daughter that I have not seen before, but have proven very effective. I can hardly believe the change in may daughter's singing after just a few lessons.

I've been writing since I was old enough to do so and I would love to share my passion of writing with you. From screenwriting to fiction to essays to writing sketches, I've tackled it all. And I'd love to help you develop your story as you work hard to become the writer you've always wanted to be!

About Kimberly
I am a trained actress in my late 20's. I have experience coaching many professional working actors. I have worked on audition sides for TV (Law & Order, Narcos, Disney, SMILF, etc), independent films, big budget studio films, web series, off broadway plays, off off broadway plays, monologues, and anything in between with my students!

I am currently the creator, writer, lead actress & executive producer of my own comedic web series (to air mid-2018).

I have been trained by exceptional teachers in the following: Linklater (voice), Williamson (movement), film/tv & theater, script analysis, theater & film history, cold reading, monologue, stand-up comedy, etc. I have also been mentored by the legendary standup comedian Rick Crom.

I can also work with the actor, writer or comedian on the business aspect of their career: how can I
get the best headshot?, what things should I be doing everyday to reach my acting goals (some may not even be acting/writing/comedy!)?, how do I get in front of this specific casting director/producer/etc?, what events/workshops should I be attending? We can go over all that plus how to deal with nerves, get through personal blocks, fear-related patterns, and other things that may be holding you back from being the best artist you can be!

I believe training is so important so congrats on taking the first step towards a successful, exciting career! I can't wait to share my passions with you!

I have a self tape set-up with a backdrop, professional lighting & tripod. I am happy to be your reader & coach as we film your audition, scene or stand up set. We can use this as a tool to improve or film a self tape audition. We can also chose your best take together.

Sometimes writing can be exhausting and challenging if you tend to suffer from "writer's block". Through coaching on grammar, spelling, brainstorming, and essay organization, our lessons will build upon your writing skills and take you to the next level. Whether it's research papers or creative writing assignments, I can help you reach a new-found confidence in your authorial voice.

About Jennifer
Introduction:
While I am primarily a musician, I am also a freelance proofreader, and I always excelled in English class. Much of this "about me" section pertains to my musical background, as that is my primary profession. My reading and writing background is included later on in this section.

Flute Experience:
I started playing the flute when I was in fourth grade. My elementary school offered weekly flute classes, then in fifth grade we had weekly orchestra classes. But I loved the flute so much I wanted more. I began private lessons at 10 years old, and I have never looked back. From there, I went on to play in my high school's marching band, concert band, pit orchestra, and symphony orchestra; I played in three different flute choirs and my local youth orchestra outside of school; I earned two performance degrees from
the University of North Texas (Bachelor of Music) and Stony Brook University (Master of Music); I have performed with orchestras in the United States, Canada, and Europe; I have played in pit orchestras for musicals and operas; I have competed in solo competitions, I have auditioned for professional orchestras, and I have taught dozens of students of all ages across the country.
I remain eternally grateful to all my generous mentors who have inspired me throughout my career. My mentors include notable flutists Dr. Mary Karen Clardy, Dr. Elizabeth McNutt, Francine Ross Pancost, Dr. James Scott, Terri Sundberg, Jim Walker, and Carol Wincenc.

Flute, Piccolo, and Music Performance Lessons:
As a teacher, I strive to put my students first. I work with you, and for you, to help you grow as a musician or as a student. I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all mentality. Instead, I believe in a flexible and customizable teaching model, which creates a highly personalized learning experience. Whether you have been playing for 20 years and want to get back in shape, or you first touched a flute last week, I can help you to build upon your flute, piccolo, or performance skills. I pride myself in giving my students 110%, and I hope that that resonates with you as you search for a teacher who fits your needs.

Reading and Writing:
As a tutor for reading and writing, I focus on reaching whatever goal we set out to achieve when you become my student. Whether you need help analyzing literature, taking notes from a text book, or organizing a research paper, I am determined to help you become the best version of yourself. Everyone has something unique to offer, and it's my job as a tutor to bring that out of you so you can share it with the world.

I have listened to Jennifer as she gave flute lessons to several young beginning students. I observed that she truly cares about her students and invests herself in their progress. She has a creative teaching style, always coming up with new ways to approach the challenges of each individual student. She spends time to discover the students’ goals and structures their lesson plans accordingly. Jennifer is also a good communicator with the parents of younger students, making sure they are informed and inviting them to observe lessons if they wish. I’m sure you’ll find her a delight to work with.
