About Brenda

Hello, my name is Brenda! It is nice to meet you.

I have been teaching private lessons for over a decade, and hold two music degrees and two teaching certifications in music (NJ) and ESL (international). I obtained my B.M. in Music Education from William Paterson University where I was a voice major and flute/piano double minor, and obtained my Masters of Music in Performance with the Opera Institute at Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University.

Although I do work with students of all ages, I specialize in working with younger children and retired adults!

I primarily teach voice, flute, piano, music theory and history and have over 10 years of experience teaching in both individual and group settings. I also work on audition and performance preparation, do speech/accent work and more. I am constantly studying different

teaching methods so I can develop a custom program that best fits your learning styles and incorporates what you already know, with what you will need to learn in order to achieve your goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether you want to play flute, sing, act, or learn to play piano, I am here to help you become the best musician you can be. Classically trained, I also work with the styles of musical theatre, pop, rock, and jazz. I can teach you the proper techniques, posture, and breathing necessary to perform to the best of your ability and teach you how to utilize your full lung capacity to extend phrasing length and dynamic range. I will also help you learn to read and write music. Together, we will keep a log to track your progress lesson to lesson. This will also help you keep a record of the steps you are taking to obtain and achieve your goals and dreams.

*** Specialties ***
Young and beginner students.
Senior & Retired students
Students with special needs.
Performance techniques.
Audition preparation
Speech techniques (public speaking/voice-overs, etc.)
Bel Canto technique.
Performance anxiety
Life coaching!

"I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for in the patterns of music and all the arts are the keys of learning" ~Plato

About Simona

Practice makes perfect! My teaching style is based on language living rather than language studying, and while I will provide you with all of the tools to apply the correct grammar rules I encourage you to make mistakes, and learn naturally by being exposed to the language. I am 100% Italian native speaker, and I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge of the Italian language and culture with you .

I enjoy working with Simona. She’s truly dedicated to helping her students achieve their goals. She stresses the basics before moving on to developing a strong vocabulary and structuring sentences. Simona is very personable and likes getting to know you, using this as a good learning tool. Five Stars!

Simona really simplifies the learning experience and shares little nuggets of knowledge every week that are easy to remember and apply. Highly recommend her.

I have been a state certified English teacher for 5 years. I specialize in English Literature, reading, writing, SAT/ACT Prep, Spanish, and English as a Second Language. All ages and levels are welcome (grades K-12). Whether your child is working on a specific assignment or just wants to practice their literacy and language skills, I will customize my lessons to meet your child's needs. Not only do I strive to create a supportive learning environment, but an enjoyable one as well!

I am a full time ESL teacher during the school year. I love to read, travel and learn about different cultures. I enjoy bringing back souvenirs to use as teaching tools in my classroom! My favorite genre is historical fiction and right now I'm reading a mystery set in Victorian England.

About Heyinn

I am probably one of the bubbliest people you'll ever meet.

I graduated from Georgia Tech with a Bachelors in Materials Science and Engineering. My desire to serve and promote progress shines through the most when there's a learning opportunity for both parties.

Fun fact: my mom is a traditional Korean instrumentalist (plus Korean fan dance)
She influenced me in creativity.

Korean language students can quickly access authentic learning materials. The pronunciation will be enhanced through my own technique called "scatting sound method". The method was developed from my own observation of the language and my love for teaching my friends Korean.

Dance is liberating if you can master a few movements to own for yourself. When I struggled with eating disorder, dance helped me cope with anxiety. Throughout college, I independently studied

a particular dance called waacking and k-pop. As a result, I have accumulated know-hows through experiment.

As a professional engineer, my goal is to help realize what it means to be efficient learner. If it takes a tweak in system, pedagogy, or communication to help you unlock for yourself a Korean tongue or a freestyle dance soul, I am here to hear your story and cooperate.

She is really incredible!! she is very attentive and she is incredibly knowledgable on the subject matter!! I am incredibly impressed and lucky to have found a great tutor! She knows how to teach the material in a way that's easy to understand and grasp. I think, many students will enjoy her teaching methods.

About Caitlin

Whether you're trying to pass a class, converse and practice, or learn how to pick someone up en español, I'm your lady. I'm a Spanish language tutor, interpreter, and future Master in Nursing as a bilingual nurse, and can't wait to work with you!

I started studying Spanish late in life (at 18), but grew immensely in passion, technical ability, and fluidity when I moved to Costa Rica at 21. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish in 2013 and have lived in Latin America for a total of 3 and a half years since.

I was not naturally talented in the Spanish language when I started my journey. I got C's and B's in classes- messed up tests, struggled with conversation. The key to my success was making the language come alive for me! So- I took my lessons from the classroom and brought them into cooking classes, restaurants, bars, ani

mal shelters, volunteer opportunities, and other activities that speak to my heart. My goal with you will be to do the same. Let's make the language come alive for you or stoke that fire even more so you can achieve your language goals. I'm with you in this and can't wait to work with you!

"So much fun and we learned a lot. Thank you."
Candice
"I just finished my first lesson with Youngju and she did not disappoint. Firstly, she is extremely prompt, with excellent communication skills and is supe
r personable. Due to a work conflict I had to change our first lesson date and time, literally at the last minute. Youngju was very easy to get a hold of via text and email. She responded within the hour and was more than willing to accommodate my changing schedule. Today, I finally had my first lesson and walked away feeling more than satisfied. Youngju has a very easy going personality and relaxed teaching style. Due to her extensive background in education she is able to find and impart commonalities and helpful hints to aid in learning. She also provided background and a little history to our lesson, which I found extremely interesting and will definitely allow me to grasp and more easily remember the building blocks of the Korean language. The lesson was paced very well, not too slow or fast. Another highlight was the excitement and encouragement flowing from Youngju. You can see that she truly loves to teach and because of that I am extremely excited to learn Korean from her. I know I will not only walk away knowing a language but also understanding the culture better."

ago with Rosita, no back round, and I feel like I'm prepared to converse with patients about different areas. Especially when I'm taking exams. If you are a doctor and need to learn Spanish, Rosita has a structured course."
