Brooklyn, NY

I have over five years of experience teaching writing to all levels and special needs (children-adults). Students will have fun writing poems, short stories, and essays. My teaching goal is to increase students self esteem and confidence.

About Tamara
I'm a producer, instructor, singer songwriter, sound engineer, and composer residing in Brooklyn, New York. I'm currently working on a Master's Degree in Music Production and Sound Design at The Academy of Art University, freelancing as a pianist/vocalist, and I'm working on and recording a second album.

I started singing, playing piano, and composing music when I was seven years old. Throughout my musical career, I have performed and collaborated with various rock bands, classical trios, vocal ensembles, churches, and theater groups.

My Education includes Berklee College of Music, Academy of Art University, McNally Smith College of Music, MCTC, and Full Sail University (BS and AAS degrees in Music Performance, Sound Arts/sound Engineering, Music Production).

I enjoy writing and playing classical, electronic, rock, jazz,
folk, punk, and experimental music. In my free time I like to circuit bend.

*** Lesson Details ***
When you take lessons from me expect to be inspired and pushed. I thoroughly love teaching music and want the best for my students. I try my best to involve and invite students to join or listen to live music ensembles, recitals, and performances of different genres. I teach all styles of music for voice, piano, and guitar. I am very diligent with practicing, teaching you how to practice, and keeping track of it. In 3 or 6 months you will have a basic understanding of music theory and a solid foundation of piano, voice, or guitar techniques. I thrive to boost self esteem and confidence in all the students that I teach. I also teach composition, students really enjoy writing their own songs and performing them.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a guitar. I expect students that want voice or piano lessons to have some kind of keyboard in working condition.

*** Specialties ***

As a member of of MTNA (Music Teachers National Association) I am able to give your students great resources and opportunities to enter competitions.

I am also a member of New York State Music Teachers Association.

I am also a Pro Tools certified user.

Our first piano lesson with Tamara was really pleasant. She was very welcoming and attentive the whole time. I can tell my son was really enjoying the lesson. The details with the progress sheet and flash cards she provided was a plus for me. Her studio space also made the experience really great!

If there is something you do not understand,she will go over it until you comprehend the information. Janalee is a true teacher because she is very patient and understanding when it comes to your learning style.

My approach to teaching writing begins with learning where the student is currently at ability wise, then taking the time to build a custom lesson plan that will cater to strengthening current weaknesses while not being boring or generic.

I love teaching writing because there are so many topics to write about, and we can really have fun with it. It's been proven that students write more, and of a better quality when they have a topic that keeps their interest. Through using interesting topics, students will learn proper paragraph structure and how to vary their sentences in any genre of writing. Students will also work on using vibrant vocabulary that is appropriate to the topic.

About Amy
Hi, there! My name is Amy and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2006 and have loved helping my students raise their test scores, confidence level, and overall grades. I recently became a member of the National Tutoring Association. I hold a Masters degree from National University, and a Bachelors from Centenary University. I work closely with students, parents, and their teachers to assess the individual need(s) of the student, thus providing individualized lessons that target the most important areas. I utilize several different teaching methods, as there are many different learning styles. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Amy is so great with kids! I originally hired Amy to help my daughter with essay writing, as she was applying for a private high school. Amy quickly zeroed in on my daughter's weak points in writing, and had fun activities to help improve the weak points. I feel that my daughter's writing greatly improved because she went from writing short 2 or 3 paragraph answers to full essays in a few weeks. My daughter loved the writing topics, and was thrilled to begin writing her entrance essay. With Amy's guidance and direction, my daughter wrote an amazing, well organized essay that resulted in my daughter getting into her 1st choice school. We actually kept Amy on beyond the writing tutoring, because she has such a way of breaking down concepts.

To this day, Uma will point out things that Amy taught her during her tutoring sessions. I highly recommend Amy for all Language Arts tutoring. She is amazing with kids!

I've only had two sessions and I already have a better sense of control over my voice and all the anatomy associated with singing. Rebecca has a non judgemental demeanor which helps students, especially beginners such as myself to feel more comfortable and relaxed. She is knowledgeable and I was impressed with the way she assessed my range, and analyzed my voice in the initial session then set realistic goals to improve my control and the quality of my voice.

Having to sit down and write a paper (whether it be your college thesis or a five paragraph essay for an elementary level English course) can be an intimidating and stressful if not overwhelming experience.

That's where I come in...To help you with both the assignment you are currently working on as well your writing process in general. Working on strengthening how you write will make writing easier and easier each time you do it, until you don't need my help at all.

Many people are not aware of the universal strategies and tactics that can be used in order to improve their writing at every stage in the process. Whether it be brainstorming, outlining, drafting, writing, editing, etc. Taking at look at and examining your writing process together will allow us to customize the tutoring session for your needs specifically.

Outside of helping to write papers I can assist with help in English grammar, Literature, Creative Writing, and many other related fields.

About Nick
My name is Nick and I have been tutoring in writing since I was in high school. I love to work with students from grade school to grad school and help to make lasting adjustments that will improve your writing over the long term.

I became a Writing Consultant at St. John's University throughout college where I worked with hundreds of students at every stage in the writing process from coming up with a topic to write about, all the way down to making sure references have been correctly annotated. I can help you with any stage of the writing process that is giving you trouble and ensure that you are more equipped with strategies to help avoid any of these trouble going forward.

The experience I have in teaching writing coupled with a positive attitude and personality make for a pleasant and productive tutoring session that will allevi
ate the stress of your assignment, course, or subject matter and leave you feeling more confident in yourself and your ability to complete similar work in the future.

I genuinely want to and enjoy helping you to be better and accomplish what you need to. I am excited to be helping out and hope to hear from you soon!

Writing is one of today's most in-demand skills-- whether in work, school, or simply in effective communication. As a passionate writer and a writing tutor with over 8 years of experience, I focus on helping everyone uncover their unique voice and discover the writer they have within them!

Whether you're working on a creative piece, a College application, an essay, or a scientific paper, I've seen it all before and I love it all equally. I always focus on the big picture, equipping writers with tricks and tips they can implement in future writing as well as focusing on the page in front of us. Shoot me a note to see if we're a good match!

About Nora
Whenever there is a creative moment of writer's block, a college application to be written, a school essay to be edited, I am always the go-to for everyone in my circle.

It's not just because I have years of experience writing and editing-- it's because my friends and colleagues know the genuine pleasure I get from helping others write and edit their words to perfectly capture what they want to express.

Writing should be fun. We speak to express ourselves, for the most part without self-judgement of self-editing. We argue with one another, crack jokes, express emotions, explain. Why should the written word be any less dynamic, any less fun??

I love all writing equally: creative, poetry, scientific articles, applications, school essays, journalism. And I love it at all stages: Ideation, outlining, writing, editing, polishing.

If yo
u want to not only improve the writing on the paper in front of you, but to gain applicable skills that will serve you in school, work, and life for decades to come, connect with me... oh, and we'll have fun working on it too!

Whether you’re communicating internally with colleagues and executives, or externally with your client base, polished email writing skills will come handy in your professional arsenal.
