I teach students how to read and how to increase their reading comprehension with different methods of acting out the plots and making them come alive with students.
With my two Bachelor's degrees in Music Composition and Technology, I began tutoring students in piano, voice, and composition as it was part of my training. I also have experience writing and editing essays, books, and more for several independent clients. I have experience writing my own books as well. I have written two so far, but am getting ready to write a third. I am a copious editor and can catch grammatical and other errors with ease. This is why tutoring in English would be great for me. I thought I would add basic math for those school-aged children that are having a little trouble with it in their classes. Usually, I teach lessons in my home in Diamond Bar or online, but if the need arises, I could surely work out coming to the students' homes for one-on-one tutoring help. With me, most students click after a few lessons and
understand what they couldn't in the classroom. I help the students by teaching in innovative ways that will catch their attention more than standard teaching methods. Students should consider me for I can make learning fun and never a chore!
*** Lesson Details *** I use a wide variety of techniques to sing, play piano and other instruments. Techniques include straight vowel singing (no words) to test how long to hold notes, using color to help people sight read, using improvisational techniques in order to play jazz, rock, classical and many other styles of music. I use what they student has under his or her belt as a starting point to see what lessons we could start them on. I also assist with online lessons to make transportation a thing of the past. If you've got a webcam or Skype, I can do long-distance lessons with you! So, I am here to help!
*** Studio Equipment *** Alesis Recital Keyboard Music sheets Web cam Mac computer (MacBook Pro) Finale music notation software to help in composition and theory lessons.
*** Travel Equipment *** Music paper for away lessons. Finale for composition and music theory lessons. Can use macbook for more elaborate teaching or demonstration if need be.
*** Specialties *** I do teach classical composition with specialties in ensemble and chamber music. I also specialize in songwriting for pop and other media. I teach voice and vocal techniques of sacred choral and vocal music. I teach classical and jazz piano and improvisation. I also have the distinction in being able to teach students with special needs or learning disabilities as I have a mild form of cerebral palsy and understand what students with special needs go through.

I received a double BA in Music and English. I am an avid reader and worked in a university writing center for two years editing and proof reading papers. Your student will develop the skills to read quickly and effectively.
As a performer I have been playing for over fifteen years on the piano. I have received training at Vanguard University where my teacher's were graduates from Juilliard and Yale. I currently accompany the choirs at Desert Ridge Junior High. I have received a Masters in Music from Baylor University and a Doctorate from ASU and currently teach Music at Grand Canyon University. I am a published choral composer, and have had music performed in Europe and Canada.
In August of 2012 I began teaching piano on a part-time basis. My teaching philosophy has always been to make sure the students understand why and not just how to perform something. I emphasize music theory along with piano lessons and expect the students to take the time to practice every week. I have taught children of all ages from 4 to 16 years old.

After speaking to multiple tutoring companies, we discovered Matthew. Matthew was very professional and made my son feel comfortable. They had a total of 5 tutoring sessions covering Math, English, Science and Reading. My son took the ACT after his tutoring sessions and scored a 23. We were very pleased with the progress our son made by going from an ACT score of 19 to 23 after only 5 sessions with Matthew. I would highly recommend Matthew J. Horwich to anyone needing tutoring.

Matthew explained his approach to coaching and the plan so we were able to make an educated choice on the best tutor for our son. Matthew was responsive, organized and worked very well with our son. He communicated directly with our son and cc:ed me so that I was aware of the plan and f/u. His scores did improve on the SAT and we were pleased with the investment.

Matt has been awesome for my student. His math skills have improved greatly, and his writing has come from illegible to what can now be described as neat and readable. Matt has been very patient and deliberate with our son and has taken the time to really explain things to Jake in a way he can understand. We would recommend this tutor to any parent looking for a tutor for their grammar school student! Matt is also reliable and prompt and showed up when expected which was helpful with our very busy schedules.
It is my goal to help build your confidence as a reader. I was personally selected by multiple principles in Baltimore County Public School district (BCPS) to teach, and hold the title of Reading Specialist. I have taught over a hundred students, and even completed a leveled literacy workshop that gives teachers the tools to increase elementary student's reading. Many of my students moved up in reading levels, and most importantly felt confident as readers. I will make reading fun, as I implement my background of the Performing Arts into the lesson, "Reader's Theatre."
Hello there! I'm Kaira, thank you for your interest and welcome. I have been teaching private lessons in singing and acting lessons since 2003. I am able to teach singing and acting lessons online, and ESL or reading lessons at a library located in the Owings Mills or Randallstown, MD area.
My education career has afforded me the opportunity to be a Master of Arts Graduate from Syracuse University with a concentration in Television, Radio, and Film. I also attended the University of Nevada Las Vegas where I majored in the concentrations of Vocal and Stage Performance, as well as, Technical Production; here, I received my Bachelors of Arts degree. Also, I received a TESOL certification through an international ESL company, and have acquired accredited Early Childhood education with an emphasis in Reading and ESL from Grand Canyon Univ
I am an active Performing Artist. I have developed many relationships within the industry, and acquired much knowledge on how to become a working artist. I love what I do so much that it has afforded me to teach my expertise in the areas of voice, stage performance and audition preparation. As an educator, I believe that there is no limit to what you can do, my education, passion and goal is to help you become a confident reader at any stage of your life. I look forward to meeting you.
My child was not at 8th grade reading level, he has been taking lessons for about two weeks now. No one could tell me his reading level, Kaira did a computer test, created a plan and it's working great. For the first time my son is excited to learn. He's doing better in school in short matter of time.
April 23, 2019
Awesome lesson! I felt more confident after being out of the game of acting for awhile. Also, she's very nice.
April 11, 2019
It was such a pleasure meeting Kaira! She was so warm and welcoming. My daughter loved her singing lesson. She has grown so much as a singer and is more confident than ever. You will not regret hiring Kaira, she is absolutely the best vocal coach I could have ever found for my child. Very professional and knowledgeable!
I tutor grade school kids - high school and increase their interest in the subject, be it reading, writing or math. Keeping the student interested in what they are learning and curious to learn more propels them toward higher learning in the future.
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 was very organized and well informed about chemistry. She was so much help. I would definitely use her again.
September 19, 2017
Great help to our 9y.o., who is exploring math. Clear explanation, additional materials, and a nice memo after each lesson. Thank you! Will do again!
July 27, 2017
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 have over 13 years of teaching experience as well as a graduate degree in education.
I have over 13 years of teaching experience at both the secondary and post-secondary level, and I have lived and taught for nearly 10 years in Japan. I have a graduate degree in education with a specialization in TESL/TEFL.
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.
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.
I have been teaching for over 25 years. I would love to give your student that aha moment and help increase the number of those so that eventually my job is done and he or she doesn't need me any more:D
I am a woodwind specialist with my primary instrument being the clarinet. But, I also teach beginning to intermediate strings, piano, and percussion. I also have experience with teaching and tutoring reading, Spanish, and Math because of my minor in Spanish and my MBA in Finance.
"Mr. Steve Silver is the best tutor I ever had. He is truly an inspiration and his tutoring services have great impacts on my education"
"Very happy with Cody he has patience and is a very nice person also is really helping my grandson with his writing. He is 9 years old and needs help with
writing and reading.Cody knows how to get him interested."
"Marlena is very patient and her teaching background can be felt. Highly recommend for all ages: children- adults."
"Dr. D is the best! Engaging, knowledgeable, funny and likable! She looked up the education curriculum in our state to make sure she was giving my daughter
what she needed! Not only did I enjoy her but my daughter was engaged the whole lesson and wanted to do more! She made sure to keep me informed of how things went! She’s really GREAT!"
"My son has learned so much."
"Kesley is absolutely amazing! She is so patient and creative. My daughter struggled so much with reading. Now she is a confident reader and is near the to
p of her class in both reading and math. Additionally, my daughter struggled with some behavior problems. Kesley was firm but kind and helped her behave not only during tutoring session, but also in school.
We are also foster parents with kids of all ages coming and going all the time. Kesley has worked with almost all of them and helped them get caught up in school. If there was something higher than 5 stars, I would give it to Kesley. You could not find a better tutor."
"My lessons with Laurel have been fantastic! She's very patient & knows exactly how to make everything make sense & how to break things down in order give
proper analysis in whatever she teaches from piano to singing to basic music theory. She was able to answer any questions I had in full detail. She's a very warm & welcoming person that loves to teach & can do so very well. I highly recommend her as an instructor. She is with out a doubt, a genius of her craft."
