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 Mathew
I have been coaching chess for years. I have been passionately studying the game of chess for 13 years. I am currently a 1987 USCF player (Class A player). My highest rating was 2121 for chess.com blitz rating. But I am committed to go to 2200+ USCF player (National Master player). I have won several chess tournaments as well. I recently won the 2018 Philadelphia Open Chess Tournament.

I am currently coaching several students to go above and beyond their expectations. If you hire me as your coach, I will take you above and beyond your expectations in the game of chess. My coaching style is hands on, which means that I provide move by move feedback. My coaching philosophy is grounded in encouragement and meticulous game review. My one student that I have been coaching for 2 years went from never playing chess to a 1350 USCF chess rating
.

I graduated from Kutztown University of PA in 2013 with a B.S. in Biology: Molecular/Micro/Cell with two Minors in Mathematics and Biochemistry. I have such a passion for math, science, and chess. And I try to live with that passion everyday and show that passion to people everyday.

Matt as my first chess coach and has greatly increased my understanding of chess. My games are now competitive with players 400 to 600 rating points above me and I feel I am improving every week. Funny how much I can learn quickly after playing for forty years, with just a few lessons.

About Howard
I have a doctoral degree and 30 years of teaching experience in mathematics at public and private colleges. I have also done much one-on-one tutoring and curriculum planning. I am now retired.

I can help you learn arithmetic, algebra, finite math, trigonometry, or any other area of mathematics from primary or secondary school, or beginning college math. I have heard my students say things like "This is the first time I ever understood math!"

First of all, you have to believe that you are capable of doing mathematics. You may have heard well-meaning friends or parents say "You don't have a math brain" or "You are not a math person". These are counterproductive thoughts. In fact, anyone can learn mathematics. If you adopt a positive attitude and make good use of your study time, you can make great strides!

About Adrienne
I have been teaching for 20 + years. Out of those years I have taught middle school Reading and Writing for 14 years. I am a certified teacher and have a clear background check which has been filed and established through the school district of Philadelphia.

I enjoy teaching writing and watching my students tap into the potential that already lies within them to develop as proficient writers.

My goal is to teach my students the basics of planning and developing proficient essays as well as gaining confidence to be able to dissect and respond to any writing prompt they are given. Do not fret any longer. Everyone can learn to be a proficient writer. Learning the correct steps and skills of writing will give any student the confidence to produce high quality writing pieces. Don't Fret any longer. Everyone can learn to be a proficie

About Iulia
Hello,

I am a private tutor of 4 years, specializing in mathematics. I graduated from the University of Delaware with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish major and an Education minor, and I am an English as a Second Language (ESL) Instructor to adults, and a Private Tutor.

Why is a Spanish major specializing in instructing students in mathematics? While it has been my privilege to also tutor students in Spanish and English, mathematics has been the subject that I enjoy teaching the most, and I am currently seeking to build a math curriculum from kindergarten to high school, so I want to narrow the subjects I teach down for now, to the ones that I will work on including in the curriculum, so I can better focus on the curriculum and create it more quickly.

I have spent over 250 hours tutoring mathematics at the elementary, pre-algebra, and Alg
ebra I & II levels, and I have found that, commonly, if students find math difficult, it is because they need to brush-up on fundamental skills required to do current tasks. When a student has trouble completing a task, I look to see which components of the problem is giving them a hard time or they don't understand, and once I explain the how and why of each component of a problem to them, I give them a chance to practice on their own, to make sure they feel confident that they are able to complete the problems by themselves. I also provide condensed explanations in a review, if a student is ready to move to the next topic.

As a tutor, it is my joy to see the logic of how to complete a problem come together for each student, and to see them feel competent in the work that they do.

As my "Math for Elementary Teachers - II" professor would say, "focus on the reasoning, not on the procedure," meaning that learning should be based on understanding the relationships between two pieces of information, rather than memorizing a list of steps (without knowing why they are done in that way). Equally important is to be able to see a problem from more than one perspective, which gives students a deeper understanding of math and creates mental flexibility. Together, those two things help create connections in the brain that are long-lasting, and can serve students in future courses, or (possibly), even help students with reasoning in other areas of life. For me, learning is of utmost importance, and I would gladly help you in any way.

About Gaurav
As a graduate of the Carnegie Mellon Mechanical Engineering program, I had the opportunity to provide guidance to students in multiple ways. I helped incoming freshman in the Introduction to Mechanical Engineering classes as a Teaching Assistant and also as a grader. I made sure to provide clear feedback on all homework assignments to ensure that students were steered the right direction.

As a teaching assistant, I would assist the professor in proctoring exams so I have a lot of experience interacting with students and being able to adapt to different situations.

Before college, I spent two years tutoring at Kumon Learning Center in high school where I would teach younger elementary school children Math and Reading. As I go forward, I'd like to continue to share the knowledge I have and help people learn.

I also have previous
experience tutoring online and have multiple students learn the fundamentals of the subject they wanted to understand. I look forward to working with you!
