About Julia
Hi! My name is Julia A. I have been tutoring students of all ages and skill levels at learning centers, colleges, libraries and schools since 2008.

My instruction extends nationwide, with students from all corners of the US, utilizing online tutoring services such as Skype.

My main field of study is in MATH (trig, algebra, geometry, precalculus), CHEMISTRY (high school and college), and PHYSICS (high school and college).

I completed my Bachelors in Physics and Mathematics Education at Hunter University and have gained experience with both in-person and online group instruction and curriculum development.

Some examples of the students I have tutored are: Elementary school students preparing for State competitions and exams; High school and College students in preparance for entrance exams, and in subjects such as algebra, geom
etry, trig, precalc, chemistry and physics.

I do Regents and SAT/ACT prep for these subjects as well as the GRE (These are NYS based High School Preparatory Exams - do not hesitate to ask should you need assistance with the ones offered in your state/country).

In addition, I am thorough and meticulous, by paying special attention to how the student grasps information and retains it, I prepare individualized handwritten reviews, with supplemental material found online and in texts.

I assign homework to keep my students ahead of what is going on in class, and a visual and intuitive understanding of the concepts I present is important to me, so I use visual aids (diagrams and interactive models) to help my students integrate what they learn with me in real life situations.

My instruction includes:
1. Tutoring based on the school curriculum
2. Instruction on the home-schooling curriculum
3. Assisting those with a gap in going back to school/university.

I start with an assessment based on what the student has trouble with or last remembers covering in school, and prepare material going from there.

As a result, my students all have improved grades without any need for cramming before tests, and I encourage a stress-free and easygoing learning environment.

My lessons are fun and enthusiastic - these subjects are beautiful and will help open your mind to new ways of thinking - whatever your field of study!

Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools.
I see marked improvements in their grades for this past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise.
Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough.

I'm in a fast paced trig course at my uni, and we've covered things I never did in high school. I did 5 lessons over skype with Julia, and know I've found a keeper. She sends stuff to practice on in advance and has me work with her like I would with my professor. She comes up with practice based on my weakest areas and never shortens time. I don't even have to ask for review material because she assigns hw to work on, and basically, I'm a master at graphing now.

About Grant
Hello!

My name is Grant and I’ve been helping students grow for almost 10 years now! How time flies! I started playing music at the age of 9 and have been in love with it ever since, staying active in my local music scene as an instructor, performer, manager, and booking agent. I have also earned a degree in Creative Writing from Louisiana State University for all of the students wishing improve their writing skills!

In addition to freelance work, (weddings, jazz brunch gigs, etc.) I am the lead guitarist for the Funk/R&B band Water Seed and the soul project RetroFit. I attended Indiana University for jazz guitar and have studied under jazz greats Dan Miller, Corey Christiansen, and Oteil Burbridge.

I pride myself in taking a students learning needs and using that as my basis for their specific lesson plan, always on a case-by-c
ase basis, tailored to each individual student. Everyone is at a different waypoint on their path so why would I use a predetermined formula to try and help them, am I right? I am excited to meet and grow with every single one of you, let's learn to love the life we have and let our studies become radiant!

I teach all kinds of disciplines from guitar, mandolin, banjo, and clarinet, to creative writing, meditation, and even astrology. If you have any questions about my teaching methods, skill level in a certain discipline, or anything thing you can think of I would be more than happy to answer you!

Musically yours,
Grant

About Amy
I have been crocheting for over 15 years and knitting for over 5 years. My true passion is knitting but I teach both. I taught for Michael's craft stores for a little over a year and then decided to venture out on my own and teach privately until I am able to reach my ultimate goal of owning my own yarn store. My current students say I have a lot of patience and am a joy to learn with. I can teach anywhere from beginner lessons to advanced techniques such as cables, lace and socks.

I've taken lessons from Amy for both Crochet & Knitting. She is awesome!! I'm ambidextrous, a lefty by nature but do many things with my right and Amy was able to show me both left & right ways of knitting to see which one was more comfortable for me. She is knowledgeable and extremely patient, upbeat personality and makes learning fun. My 9yr old took a class with her and loved it. Don't hesitate, Amy is awesome.

About Rachael
I am a knitwear designer living in working in Brooklyn, NY. I run my own sustainable knitwear and homegoods brand right here in Brooklyn! I graduated from Vassar College and went on to receive my MA both the Glasgow School of Art and The University for the Arts in London, UK in 2005.

I studied fine art and photography during college, but incorporated my love of fiber arts into my work since I was a very young child. I first learned to crochet when I was 10 years old! I was a practicing photographer in the world of music and conceptual portraiture for years before switching over to starting my knitwear brand in 2009. My company are venture fellows at the Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator, a hub for sustainable fashion, and is a proud member of the Ethical Fashion Forum's Fellowship 500 as a leader in a diverse group of brands
and manufacturers committed to sustainable production. We work with local hand-knitters here in Brooklyn, as well as artisans and artisan-owned workshops in Peru, Bolivia and Uruguay specializing in alpaca and merino knitting, as well as with local yarn spinners and weavers.

My company has been featured in Elle, Teen Vogue, Marie Claire, Real Simple, Women’s Health, Seventeen, Self Magazine, Lou Lou, & Time Out print publications and online at Chictopia, Ok Magazine, Refinery 29, Runway Hippie & Daily Candy to name a few. Our collections have been sold everywhere from Barney's Tokyo, American Rag CIE, ASOS and Henri Bendel in NYC.

My personal passion is knitwear and crocheting, but I firmly believe I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any fiber art. I'm very personable and excited to teach people of all ages this functional, creative skill in a fun, laid back environment! I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better crocheter and designer!

About Leo
My name is Leo. I've been a musician for 28 years and teaching for 14 years and I still continue to pursue all things concerning music with the same passion, perseverance, and love I had at the beginning of my music career.

I received my formal training at Texas State University where I studied Classical guitar and Music Education while also playing in Hard Rock bands in San Antonio. While still in college, I started teaching music privately to help pay for my education. I soon found myself with a successful business and decided to focus on it full time.

My goal is to produce quality music lessons available to anyone who's ever desired to learn the guitar, piano, music production, music theory, Pro Tools, songwriting & arranging, composing for film & video games, and all other important music skills in the comfort of their home.

The starting point of all achievement is desire, so if you desire to become a better musician then don't hesitate, get started now.
