Golden, CO

Writing is one of the most important skills you can have in our current society. My personal instruction includes, critical thinking skills in writing, philosophy, structure and form. Students will learn by evaluating many different levels of text. They will then progress to developing their own techniques and expanding their current vocabulary.

I was very happy that he pretty well pin pointed my problem with my voice and I was happy with the practice assigned.

Daniel is awesome!! He really knows how to customize the lesson to your skill level and makes it so that it's easy to learn. I'm already memorizing and learning things that I didn't think I would be able to. I'm really enjoying my lessons and so glad that I signed up. Looking forward to many more lessons from Daniel!

Kirstin took a long time to respond to my requesting lessons (I actually had to call customer support to get her to respond). Then she rescheduled my first lesson twice, so that my first lesson would have been three weeks after signing up. I got a new teacher before that lesson. I never had a lesson with her, she might be great, I never got to find out.

Jillian V.

Dobbs Ferry, NY

Ever since I was a child, I absolutely loved to write. During my sessions as creative writing tutor, I hope to foster that same love for writing. My students are challenged to stay true to their own voice while simultaneously considering craft, style, syntax, structure, and the myriad elements of engaging, successful writing. My sessions can be catered to a specific goal (standardized testing), or can be an open-ended experience invaluable to academic success.

Jillian's really smart and nice

I started taking lessons with Jillian around when i started high school a couple years ago. I play french horn in school, and I'm considering studying music in college, so I definitely needed to know more music theory. I play guitar too, so we started studying songwriting, too, so that I can write some songs with my band. Jillian's so nice, and really smart, so she makes it really easy to learn! I really like classes with her.

One of the best teachers I have ever had

I am a 15 years old and have been taking lessons with Jillian for about a year and a half. I started out as a beginner and she was so patient with me and encouraged me continuously so that I can feel confident in myself. She also made the experience so much fun, while other teachers I've had made it stressful. She is also so knowledgable and talented but never made me feel bad that i wasnt at her level. Jillian is also cares about all her students and their progress. I cant recommend her enough to everyone who wants to learn!!

Lucas is the rarest kind of teacher; the special kind who can turn a student's confused babble into a clear question with a definite answer. I signed up for music theory lessons after writing a lesson plan on Stravinsky's The Rites of Spring (I am a teacher myself) and realizing as I did that I actually had only the vaguest idea what I was talking about as I informed my students that a riot occurred on opening night back in 1913 because Stravinsky build the music on tritones, creating weird chord progressions that built a tension that was never fully resolved because the chord that came where the tension should release was close enough to tease but not close enough to fully resolve that tension. Believe it or not, that is why I decided to take lessons in music theory. I would have driven any teacher but Lucas crazy. If you want to know something about music theory but can't say exactly what, Lucas is your best bet.

Very professional and patient

Ms Olsen has been giving my daughter piano lessons for a year. She comes to our home and is very professional, timely and patient. My daughter has made great progression with her piano, she looks forward to her lessons and practices without me having to remind her. It's so convenient that she comes to our house, and she communicate with me . I would highly recommend her.
