About Jean-Luc
Dear Learners
My name is Jean-Luc, I am from the Loire Valley in France and have broad experience in teaching French at various levels (beginners to AP French, DELF and DALF) for numerous years. Based on the belief that a better world for all can be achieved through better communication, my mission has sought to improve language skills and cultural understanding for people of all ages and professions. If you want to learn or improve your French, I can help you with my French Language Training. I customize my classes and offer tutoring options to suit individual needs. My experience and skills combined with the Tutoring Live online enables my students to start speaking French from the very first session. I adapt the lesson to my student, even if sometimes it requires re-examining what was initially planned. I will be very happy helping y
ou with yours needs.

About Hadi
Since 2009, I have completed over 600 public music performances as a part of a band and as a solo keyboardist. I have performed at over 50 different venues in Philadelphia, Wilmington, New York City, Baltimore and New Jersey area. I mainly play piano, electric piano and Hammond organ. As member of a band, I have played Funk, New Orleans, Classic Rock, Blues, Jazz and Fusion. As a solo pianist, my playing style is more into Jazz easy listening (swing, bossanova, foxtrot), Pop/Rock Standard, Blues/New Orleans easy listening and ragtime.

I have been playing keys for over 20 years and graduated from Berklee College of Music with a major in Jazz Composition and Music Production & Engineering. I have taught students, teenagers, adult and small children as young as 5 years old. My teaching is focused on stylistic piano playing (chord playing,
improvisation, transposition) for students over 10 year old with at least 1 year continuous piano training. I certainly welcome piano training for beginners as early as preparatory level. Digital piano and digital Hammond organ are available at my house for piano tutoring should you choose to come to my location.

My graduate study was in Acoustics. I am an acoustical consultant and also an audio engineer. I specialized in room acoustics and electro-acoustics (loudspeaker design). I have a studio at home and open to audio tutoring (recording and mixing) request as well.

I am originally from Indonesia and have already published two books. I can help with Indonesian language tutoring for English native speakers. I have done many seminars/workshops both in English and Indonesian.

I welcome tutoring requests in Music (Piano, Composition/Arranging), Music Theory, Music Production or other Audio/Acoustics related topics.

Working with Hadi is a true pleasure. He has an immense amount of knowledge and experience to boot. Hadi is extremely easy to work with and has tons of patience while in the lesson. He has a keen ability to analyze where you are as a player and build a personalized plan to reach your goals. I highly recommend him as a teacher for pursuing jazz piano as well as other contemporary styles.

Chloe K - February 7, 2018
Mr. Hadi is a very patient and knowledgeable piano teacher. My son definitely enjoys learning piano and music theory with him. I can see that Mr. Hadi keeps a progress chart for each of his students,. My son is just a beginner level student, but he still gets personalized content from Mr. Hadi.

My goal is not to show off my son's piano skill at family gathering, but to encourage him appreciate and enjoy music. Thanks to Mr. Hadi for helping me reaching this goal.

Velisia C - February 11, 2018
It was my first piano learning lesson, and Hadi is the greatest teacher. As an adult, I thought it will be hard to understand the material but Hadi gave a very good explanation. Quick responses, and absolutely great value for a private lesson. He is so patient. Worth it!!!

Chris D - February 23, 2018
Hadi S is an excellent teacher, and an even better player. As a teacher, he's patient, knowledgable, and provides excellent advice that helps you develop your skills. And as a player, he is as good as it gets. He can play just about anything. Best was that he takes the time to speak with you and ask what kind of atmosphere you want to create with music, and then does exactly what was asked.

Emily B - March 2, 2018
Lessons are easy to understand. Very good at explaining what you are doing wrong and how to fix your mistakes. Music choice is also always fun making practicing more enjoyable.

Charmel G - March 27, 2018
Hadi is very personable and knowledgeable. He helps my daughter feel comfortable and confident with her skills and abilities. He is also very accommodating. I'm glad to have found Hadi....

Hadi has been a fantastic instructor for my 15 year old son, who was a complete beginner. Under Hadi's patient guidance and thoughtful plan, he is playing well and really enjoys the lessons. I would highly recommend Hadi to anyone regardless of experience level. He has expert knowledge but can talk to and work with novices to get them playing right away.

Hadi was excellent. I booked Hadi to teach my mom for her birthday. It was always her goal to learn piano. Hadi's teaching methods are custom to each student and his patience and positive attitude creates a perfect learning environment. I would highly recommend.

Thanks for viewing my profile. It's important to select a teacher that you are comfortable with. Allow me to give you some background information about myself. I graduated from Rider University in New Jersey where I was a student mentor to MBA students from Shanghai, China. Immediately after graduating, I travelled to China and taught there for over 5 years. I then moved to Malaysia where I oversaw all operations at a new international school. I think transferred to our university where I continued to teach English to beginner through upper intermediate level students from all over the world. A large number of our students were from China, all over the Middle East, Korea, Japan, and various countries around Southeast Asia. If you think that we could start a partnership as you learn English, feel free to contact me!

I am a second generation High School Spanish teacher with 15 years experience. To me, speaking a foreign language is a fun and exciting adventure. It can open doors to meeting new people, visiting new places, and having many fun and enriching experiences. Whether you are a beginner or want to brush up on your skills, I can help you achieve your personal goals.

With each lesson you will be able to speak and interact more in Spanish. I believe that conversation is best part of learning a foreign language.

About Chris
Hi, my name is Chris and I am a native speaker and tutor of American English. I have taught people of all ages to improve their English and I can help you too!

In January 2014, I began teaching classes and private lessons in Warsaw, Poland and later in Berlin, Germany. I have also taught in New York City and online via Skype, to people from various countries around the world. My father and his two brothers were all teachers, so I guess that is where I get my natural teaching ability.

I have a bachelor's degree in Sociology from Penn State University, where I also taught some classes. I also have business experience and can teach students to speak and write in English for any situation!

I am very easy going, encouraging, and a great conversationalist. I customize lessons based on each student's skills and goals, as well as favori
te topics, and how they learn best. I am knowledgeable on many subjects, and more importantly, good at getting students talking, no matter what age or background.

REVIEWS:
Below are reviews by some of my former students in Poland from e-korepetycje.net/chrisnyc/jezyk-angielski (translated from Polish into English). I have also taught students from Germany, Hungary, Sweden, Spain, South Korea, Argentina, China, Israel, France, Indonesia, Columbia and Turkey.

"A really good teacher and the great hour-long conversations with him provide guidance not drudgery. He is enthusiastic and cheerful, recommended." - Magda

"I worked with Chris for 3 months, and I'm very happy. We focused on conversation, vocabulary development (based on analysis of interrogated podcasts), and correction of pronunciation. With Chris, any subject can be interesting to talk about." - Wojtek

"He worked with my 10-year-old son Antek, inventing dialogues in English based on the boy's favorite superhero characters and their behavior. Chris is creative and always smiling, and Antek misses the lessons." - Jerzy

"Great lessons with a sense of humor. Conversations require thinking and combining vocabulary (no shortcuts and tips in Polish). Big emphasis on correct pronunciation and vocabulary. In a word, I highly recommend." - Michael

"I can recommend wholeheartedly. We have real discussions, not set topics, and discuss how certain words are challenging for us. From time to time we also have a lesson in which we process words or homophones that are difficult for us (thief/teeth). We strongly recommend to all who want to rise above the level of intermediate." - Pawel

"Chris is a really great conversationalist! He only speaks English, which forces you to think and conduct conversations only in English, which is half the battle! If I do not understand what he says, he will explain it in so many ways that I finally understand. He is a very open person, easy to talk with, problem-free, and has many interests, so you can talk about anything. I would recommend as a native speaker!" - Izabela
