I love to read, and always have a book with me. I'd love to share the joy and fun of reading with you!

About Karen
I have a BA in Psychology, and an MA in Parapsychology. I studied Architecture for 3 years, and Music Education for two years. I was a National Merit Semifinalist in High School for good SAT scores, and in the Honors Society in High School and College. I play piano, percussion, flute, cello, guitar, bass, cornet and glockenspiel, and teach music lessons. I enjoy playing duets with my students, sharing the fun of making music with them. I do macrame', draw and paint, and am certified as a Reiki Master. I always loved school, and enjoy helping other people to learn. My Dad is my role model, since he was a calm, patient tutor for me - I try to live up to his example in my own teaching work.
I like to work with my students in a learning partnership, letting them work at their own pace with my encouragement and support.
I love to teach, and
can help you love to learn!

About Elisa
Hello!

I love to teach and I have devoted my life to obtaining the highest music education possible. Learning to play an instrument is fun but it is also challenging. My lessons consist of technique and general music training that include aural skills and music theory. My lessons are a lot of fun because I have high standards, but also maintain a light hearted atmosphere. I teach violin and viola from beginning to advanced levels. My students have ranged in age from 3 to 65 years old and I feel that I can teach students at any age.

If you want to include learning to play the violin or viola in your life then I would be a great choice for a teacher. Thank you. Elisa

My daughter started taking violin lessons with Elisa in January of 2014. She is by far the best music teacher that we've had! Elisa is very challenging but makes learning and playing fun. My 8 year old daughter has made leaps and bounds in music and can now read music after only a short 8 months of playing. My daughters bow hold and tone quality are absolutely excellent and it's because of Elisa! I would definitely recommend her as a teacher. You will not be disappointed.

Elisa is a very responsible, skillful, and sweet teacher

Before Elisa moved to Ventura, CA, she was a master student and taught in IP piano school and Kwong Kow Chinese School in Boston, MA. My daughter, Sarina, was one of her students. My daughter loves her so much and made good progress when Elisa was teaching her. Elisa made Sarina relax and comfortable so that she was enjoying the learning process; she emphasized on skill and poses, she tried hard to help the students to get to the best they could. She is reliable as you can talk with her about the timing change and make up lessions. She came to our house to say goodbye and hug Sarina before she left. She is a great teacher that you can count on and you will enjoy her teaching.

I have been an avid reader my entire life, but have tutored for a number of years and know that reading can be daunting to many. I find that it is easiest to help students break chapters into smaller sections so that they can analyze them easier. I can help to make outlines and teach the basics of literary style but am also able to cover nuances within narratives.

About Hannah
I have been tutoring for over 6 years now and have worked on everything from personal creative writing projects to senior theses to college writing assignments. I graduated with a BA in Literature from Purchase College in 2014 to start my publishing career. I am an avid reader as my background suggests - I love reading in every capacity and share my enthusiasm with all of my students. My favorite genres are classic American literature, metafiction, and popular science though I read everything in between as well. Past students have been known to call me vibrant, imaginative, and ambitious. One of my greatest joys as a tutor is to help see students all the way through challenging projects. I pay very close attention to the needs of my students and feel it is highly important to facilitate a comfortable but structured working environment for
each student's particular challenges.

I love teaching reading to students because it opens up the doors of their imaginations. Good reading is essential and still valued in the United States. I will help those who have small difficulties to not being able to read at all.

About Cathryn
Hello! My name is Cathy and I have been teaching voice (singing) for over 30 years. But don't let that fool you into thinking I'm a stogy old girl who doesn't have a pulse on contemporary music. I teach pop, country, broadway, folk, whatever it is your interested in. I do teach with vocal exercises because without them no changes will be made and that's the whole point right to change your voice? However you do get to sing songs. I teach, so that you will change your voice and succeed in whatever avenue you want. My degree is in Vocal Performance from Northeastern Illinois University and one year of Masters work in Drama from DePaul University.

I also teach ESL, Reading, Writing, History which I have done for the past ten years. I use a variety of techniques since no two people are alike to help you learn English or the Ameri
can lifestyle. I presently teach Caterpillar employees, spouses and children. Let me teach you and see how far we can go.

Thank you.

Reading is the core of all learning!

About Natalie
After graduating high school at the top of my class, I got full funding for an economics degree at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where I was born. I was very busy in college--my extracurriculars included 2 semesters abroad (Spain, Singapore), writing an honors thesis, being a consultant to the academic advising office, and being president of an honor society; besides this I worked my butt off in classes and graduated with a 3.7.

Besides academics, I am super interested in fitness, general wellness and psychology.

I would love to talk it out with you wherever our learning interests intersect!

You can learn to read fluently and to increase your comprehension.
Reading has always been one of my favorite things. It can take you to different worlds and through time. It can open the doors to learning and introduce you to characters that soon feel almost real, like new friends. I look forward to hearing from you. If you want classes in the Manhattan Beach library, let me know, and give me some time, so I can schedule a room there in advance.

About Katherine
I look forward to tutoring you. I teach Graphic Design, Adobe Creative Suite, Drawing, PowerPoint and more.

I graduated from the Art Center College of Design, in Pasadena, CA. and later took some additional classes at UCLA. I taught graphic design and illustration at Woodbury University. I've worked for advertising agencies and large corporations.

I now have my own business and also enjoy teaching young students through adults.

Businesses and academic institutions around the world use PowerPoint. It is important at all levels to be an effective communicator and presenter.

I will use my academic knowledge joined with my new world digital technology skills, to make you able to express yourself.

Every session students can bring their own items/homework to work from or assignments can be created based on their needs. Every session will be for YOU. It will go at your pace and as will work to help you learn and grow in reading.

Each lesson will work specifically with phonics.

About Shelley
I'm a professional singer/teacher residing in New York City with degrees from Indiana State University, and New York University with a specialization in Classical Art Song, Musical Theatre Repertoire, and Vocal Pedagogy.

Every lesson is about YOU. So each week we will take a look at your goals for the lesson, whether you are preparing for college auditions, school talents shows, a desire to work with music theory, or piano skills, this is your opportunity to explore. Everything is possible.

As a professional singer myself, I am constantly auditioning on broadway, off-broadway, and for smaller local and regional theater opportunities. I believe that as a teacher I have to continue to be in the field and learning as the industry continues to change. I have to be aware of the opportunities in this business. I have been hired by pr
ofessional opera and musical theatre companies, in additional to large choral works as a soloist, and have a private studio in Washington Heights.

Prior to NYC I taught middle school choir for 200+ students, of which I received teacher of the year in 2012. I also still hold a valid teaching license in the state of Indiana and currently applying toward my NYS teaching certification.

Within my voice studio I teach in person and online lessons. While online lessons can be beneficial for students wishing to study with me that are not in the immediate vicinity, I recommend in person lessons

I look forward to hearing your beautiful voice and helping you to embrace music. Feel free to check out my website for any further information!
