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!

My daughter 7yrs took lessons from Karen for 8 months. She was so patient and kind. My girl loved her and her teaching style.
I would have given 5 stars if she had got a real piano, not an electronic one.

I teach many styles of acting from stage to film and in between including Shakespeare I have studied a variety of methods on acting and will cater to the interests of my students. I have a degree in Speech and Communications as well as Performing arts and would love to help you with your public speaking or every day speech needs. I coach from two locations.

the opportunity to cross over if they would like.
I pay attention to my students needs and wants. I would like students to be open minded about the work that they are being taught but I also want to take their interests to heart. If a student brings me music or a monologue that they would like to work on, I will review it and try to incorporate it within our studies.

About Molly
Raised in New York city, I attended Stuyvesant High School, the jewel in the crown of the NYC public school system. Traditional academic achievement was not enough for me however, and I went on to study fashion design, honing my artistic skills at Drexel University. Call me a renaissance woman or a Jill-of-All-Trades, I've been employed in fashion houses, graphic design firms and visual effects shops. I've also made my way freelancing as a photographer, web designer, and writer. In addition to this variety of creative skills, I have a Bachelors in Business Administration, and training in Quickbooks. I recently scored a perfect 170 on the GRE verbal, and obtained admission into several competitive doctoral programs in Clinical Psychology.

I realize it is not enough to merely have skills or intelligence in order to be a tutor. One must
be able to convey them to the student in a way that is effective and (hopefully) enjoyable. From the helping students prepare a portfolio for undergraduate admission, to teaching the basics of essay writing, I have a warm attentive attitude that sets students of all ages at ease. My teaching style is focused on the learning style of the person I am working with, tailoring the exercises to help achieve specific goals.

Quick note on my passion for learning as a way of life ~

As a passionate lifelong learner, researcher, educator, tutor and coach, I embrace an unbounded curiosity of wonder and never ending exploration of an interdisciplinary approach to the scientific methods of learning, and acquiring knowledge that extend far beyond my university studies, into living my life highly engaged in as much experiential (first person) learning as possible. I love asking fresh, invigorating, boldly curious, audaciously barrier-busting, status-qua daring questions, as I feel passionately that, as Dr. Albert Einstein shared, "The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity."

US (German-born) physicist (1879 - 1955)

About Amanda
Hi there! I'm Amanda!

Congratulations on starting/continuing your language journey in French! I would love to join you! I'm a PhD student at the University of Florida studying Linguistics with a specialization in Second Language Acquisition (aka the best ways to learn languages)!!! Different, from the other individuals listed here, I am not a language teacher, I am a language COACH. It's time to learn a language like it's the 21st century! Let's work together to reach your goals!

What is a language coach?

As a language couch, I enable students to focus on their goals and hold them accountable for accomplishing them. I promote student agency and allow students to make choices about their own learning; this way each lesson fits their individual needs and differences. As your own language and success coach, we will not only work t
ogether to understand the target language vocabulary and grammar, but we will also delve into the metacognitive and self-regulatory skills necessary to study quickly and efficiently, feel comfortable speaking the language, and get ahead in other areas of your life as well!

My mission for each lesson is to provide a language learning experience unique in its approach to incorporate strategy instruction including reducing foreign language anxiety, building agency, and developing self-regulated learning skills. My coaching objective is to help learners reach their second language goals through not only language teaching, but student empowerment as well. I aim to help students realize and build their own agency, resulting in a self-actualized, relaxed, and engaged learning environment. Through this one-of-a-kind coaching method, success is having my students end each tutoring session feeling positive, and eventually ending tutoring sessions all together knowing that they are competent, intelligible, and composed speakers of the target language.

I have been an language instructor and coach since 2009 teaching children English in France through the TAPIF program. I have taught/coached undergraduates French at both the Ohio University (where I earned my BA and MA in French) and the University of Florida (where I am earning my PhD in Linguistics). Further, I have taught English as a Second Language at the University of Florida as well as Santa Fe College.

As a researcher, I have focused my life's work and dissertation on the topic of lowering Foreign Language Anxiety in foreign language learners. Foreign Language Anxiety is often cited as the number 1 correlation to achievement in acquiring the target language. Do you get nervous when you attempt to speak the language that you've learned? Are you scared what others are going to think of you? Do you have perfectionist tendencies? Well, helping you manage Foreign Language Anxiety while learning French would be exactly my skill set!

While I am a seasoned, SLAT (Second Language Acquisition and Teaching) certified instructor and am able to teach at the university level, tutoring is my true passion. I began tutoring in 2008 at Ohio University and I have not stopped since. My youngest tutee was 4 years old and my oldest tutee, who is still working with me, is 72 years old. I can cater to all ages, language levels, individual differences, objectives and goals, attitudes, and motivation levels. Send me a message with any questions that you have and we can chat and set some goals for your language learning journey.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you in any way possible in the world of French! Talk to you soon! :)

About William
I am math teacher, father and grandfather. I start tutoring when I was in high school and then graduated with a bachelor's degree in mathematics in the late seventies. Later I earned a master's degree in engineering. I have taught for decades and I also had the opportunity to work as an engineer and programmer over the course of two decades. I now teach part time at colleges and tutor part time.

I teach grade school through college and the approach I use has been very helpful for students who have had trouble in math. I have students write the steps with words instead of just working examples.

A student recently wrote:

Mr. Diss took my hardest subject and broke it down so it was easier to understand. He shows clear examples of how to the problems and if I didn’t understand something he was quick to respond to my emails. I hones
tly have to say that this is the first time in my life I felt like I could truly understand math and not just hope to scrape by.

About Julie
GENERAL: I enjoy getting to know my students and their specific interests and quirks, and incorporating those into lessons to help folks better connect with and get excited about the material. I specialize in confidence-building and will be with you every step of the way as you not only gain skills, but perhaps face and overcome some emotional barriers or frustrations. I like to make lessons playful, fun, and relevant to how you want to use these tools in the world.

SINGING AND MUSIC LESSONS: In addition to providing technical training, I believe that singing is about liberation and expression, and have had successes in helping students to find their unique voices through overcoming vocal anxieties. I both work with students who are preparing for auditions and who play in professional bands, and also with students who have only ev
er sung in the shower and just want to get more comfortable using their own voice for fun. I also specialize in teaching music theory (including how to read music, rhythm practice, and harmony), playing an instrument and singing at the same time, and songwriting coaching. I degree in music from Brown University, have been a professional, performing musician for 12 years, and have been teaching private lessons and classes for 8 years.

For those in bands: I specialize in harmony and can do consultation sessions with you and/or your band to help with blending, finding harmonies that work for your respective vocal ranges and for the flow of the song, and teaching skills for finding and building harmonies.

MATH: As a middle and high school student, I didn't believe I was "good" at math. It wasn't until I was an adult and was hired as a math tutor - and later promoted to Assistant Director - of a tutoring company that I realized that was a belief that had held me back. Many kids and young adults struggle with confidence around math, and having had experience with that myself I use tools that help meet students where they're at and support them in building enthusiasm for math and confidence in themselves. In addition to providing tangible math skills (I have not only been tutoring Algebra, Geometry, SAT prep, elementary and middle school math for 5 years, but have also helped run a math tutoring company in which I built year-long curricula for grades K-12), I help students feel that math is within their grasp and can be approached with curiosity rather than fear and low self-esteem.

I had no idea when we signed up for SAT prep lessons with Julie, the level of help we would get. Julie went so far above and beyond what you would expect a tutor to do. During the lessons, she was always incredibly encouraging and focused. She explained things in a way that just made more sense. And then in between lessons, she sent problems like the ones we had trouble with to help solidify what was learned. She sent links to other sample problems and communicated regularly about the progress being made. I couldn’t rave enough about Julie!
