experienced teacher for singing. And he is very patient and nice.

Nicholas has been teaching my daughter vocal lessons for about 11 months and he’s fantastic!

She’s improved so much in 10 months! He’s awesome and delivers results! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and she’s just 9 years old and has developed so much due to his mentor ship. My daughter also has an aptitude for singing and tends to catch on to his instructions quickly.

Trouble reading even "simple" words? Can you or your child tell how many sounds there are in the word "cat"? Can you or your child say "cat", but change the "t" to a "sh"? If not, I can help. I have recently helped students from 3rd grade up to 11th grade who had never been fortunate enough to meet a teacher who knew how to help them... until they met me.

About Maurice

I taught special education in private schools for over 20 years, and then worked in the insurance industry for a few years before earning my teaching certificate and returning to teaching in the last 3 years.
