About Ethan
MUSIC LESSONS: Whether I am playing salsa, solo classical piano, in a jazz ensemble, or a concert band, I am ALWAYS having fun doing what I love, and I want you to have the same experience. After moving to Philadelphia ten years ago to study at Temple University, where I received my Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance, I have had many great opportunities to play all types of music with all types of people. While my passions are in jazz music, composing, and arranging, my varied experience helps me pass on the fundamentals necessary to becoming a great musician while also adapting to your goals, needs, and musical preferences.

*** Lesson Details ***
I aim for students to leave each lesson eager to practice and explore, and to come back with questions and stories of their progress. To that end, I work hard to tailor lessons to every
individuals interests and goals. Sometimes this means arranging, transcribing a recording, or even composing something new for my students. Additionally, in each lesson, I balance technical skills, ear training, and music theory to assure that each student walks away a complete musician, all structured around your musical goals.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The student must provide their own instrument and assigned method books. I will provide a music stand if necessary, and other useful instructional tools (metronome, tuner, etc.)

*** Home Studio ***
I offer lessons in my home located within walking distance of Broad Street in South Philadelphia, near the Tasker-Morris subway stop. I am equipped with a well-playing upright piano and plenty of space for musical activities. There is ample street parking in the area during the afternoon and early evening, and our living room is available to parents while students take their lesson. Students who travel to me for lessons gain all the benefits of performing on a piano, rather than an electric keyboard, and have access to many more resources that I am able to offer from my home, such as recordings and method books.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize teaching "late starters" (teens and adults new to piano) fundamentals in music in a fun and exciting way that will have you playing the music you love quickly.

For brass instruments, I am able to help brand new beginners build up their sound and facility through simple exercises that will have them astounded by their progress.

MATH: I use my years of classroom teaching and Master's degree in math education as experience to help guide you to the success you are seeking. I am able to tailor sessions to your specific needs with a few key points in mind:

- helping you catch-up, while also preparing you for what is ahead
- balancing practice with conceptual knowledge and application
- using research-based techniques to maximize your learning

I am a patient teacher, and well-equipped to explain tough topics in multiple ways. I like to use visuals and objects with simple examples to help my students really understand a concept before we try harder material. Total understanding and confidence is my goal for you.

My personal interests in mathematics are problem solving, puzzles, and combinatorics (think "How many different outfits can I make with all the clothes in my closet?"). If you're looking for an addicting puzzle to try, I suggest KenKen to all my students.

About Larry
First off, I want to mention something that potential Philadelphian students should be aware of. I can only go to certain sections of the city, and I can only give you lessons on weekday afternoons between 12-2pm. Sorry, no evening classes. I'll need time to travel between New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Actually, I prefer students in South Jersey. Those students can have lessons in my available time frame.

Now, a little about myself.
Are you looking for a great tutor? I'm the one you've been looking for.

I've had more than 3 years of tutoring experience in the following subjects:

* Computers (Java, general topics, C++, C, HTML, application programming, and others)
* Math (from elementary math to algebra)
* Piano (from basic to more advanced)
* Guitar (from theory to more advanced)

I've had favorable reviews from my former
clients, and I'll have competitive low rates as well. What are you waiting for?

I am a college level jazz musician.
My primary instruments are jazz guitar and upright bass.
Growing up I have always wanted to sing but never could find a qualified teacher.

Luckily, after extensive research online for vocal teachers I discovered Kara.
I have been taking lessons with her for a while now and she's wonderful.
I always have many questions for her in my lessons and she always has a knowledgable response.

I feel like I'm progressing and finally learning how to sing properly with someone who knows their stuff.

I would highly recommend studying with her.

About Kendra
I am a graduate of Temple University with a B.S. in Early Childhood Education. I love to have fun and teach (mostly at the same time!), and always want to make sure my students are comfortable.

Math students can expect a fun, engaging environment, with multiple opportunities for growth and many questions. Each student is unique in their own way and I love meeting students where they are, building from there. I like to build off of prior knowledge in order to help them understand more complex ideas. Moreover, relating questions to situations/ideas they are familiar with will help with understanding!

I have experience tutoring and teaching students from ages 2, all the way up to 18! I currently tutor 6th-9th graders on Saturday mornings in History, and I was previously a Math teacher for 5th grade. During the week, I teach Pre-K in a
ll subject areas.

As an educator, I pride myself on making sure my students are confident in their work and reach their fullest potential. Having fun, making sure the students are relaxed, and a comfortable environment are my 3 main goals for each session! My personal passions include Math, special education, and music!

About Michi
Despite all the knowledge they may have and all the "how-to" information at their fingertips, many people live their lives as if they were powerless and completely at the mercy of external circumstances. It is true that there are many things that we cannot change. However, even if our circumstances remained the same and the only thing we were able to change was our minds, it could open up a whole new world of opportunity. That is the core reason I decided to become a coach. My name is Michi and my mission is to help individuals become aware and make use of the one, incredibly powerful tool everyone has at their disposal: their own mind.

I earned a B.A. in Philosophy, an M.A. in Psychology, and am currently pursuing a doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology. I also have a background in music. My approach to coaching is heavily influenced
by all of these disciplines, but what makes it unique is that it looks at self-development through the lens of creativity. More specifically, I view the process of pursuing your goals and navigating life's challenges primarily as a creative one. To me, the creative process is a cycle of goal-driven work, creative breakthroughs, and creation (bringing your vision into reality). In music, this might mean noodling around on the piano until you come up with something you like and turn it into a song. In life, this might mean thinking about what you want and what you can do to achieve your goal, and then taking the necessary action steps to succeed. Regardless of the scenario, I view the creative process almost as a natural law: If you put in the work, you will have breakthroughs and you will bring your vision into reality; it is simply a matter of time, discipline, and perseverance. Thus, much of my work with clients revolves around fostering their trust in the creative process.

Practically speaking, this means that, within the context of assisting them with their individual needs, I intend to help all clients:
(1) Shift from an "I can't" mentality to a "how can I?" mentality.
(2) Get to a place where achieving their goals becomes a matter of "when," not "if."

Hi, everyone! Do you want your student to improve in math? Does your student need someone to help with developing writing or grammar or reading skills? Would you like your student to be able to throw a football 75 yards in the air?

If you answered "Yes" to any of those questions, I can help! (Except for the one about the football; maybe your student should try pumping iron or something.)

I've worked with kids in math and English for many years, including my own (my wife and I have four graduates), and I enjoy making subjects fun and interesting with students, while we get the job done.

Some valuable learning, a pat on the back, and a shot of confidence: that's what I offer to families. Thanks for checking me out!

- Scott
