Kyle S.

Portland, OR

I've spoken English my whole life, and have been published twice.

About Kyle

Hey!

My name is Kyle S. and I'm incredibly passionate about music education for all ages. Over twenty years of playing all instruments has taught me there is not one specific way to teach music, so I change my curriculum for every student and completely customize what you learn to how you learn, and what you're interested in. I started teaching music lessons in after school programs when I was eleven and fell totally in love. I continued to do this for many years driving to neighboring towns, volunteering at church youth groups and local Boys and Girls Club all around my hometown.

I we
nt on to study Music Education at Oregon State University and Guitar Performance at the University of Oregon and Jazz Performance on Guitar at Portland State University! At each of these Universities I taught students my age as well as locals in each town and have been supporting myself entirely through music since 2008! Additionally, I work for a Record Label in Portland, "PJCE Records", and have real life experience with production, press releases and booking through the west coast and mid-west.

In Portland I've been gigging, playing on records, recording music for films, and volunteering every week at Nonprofit Music Schools around town to help underprivileged kids, and expose them to the joy of music. Give me a call and we can talk about what you're interested in, and get lessons started.

Look forward to hearing from you!

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm fairly laid back, and teach from a number of different texts depending on the interests of the student. Each student is different, and I vary instruction accordingly. I have a lot of experience songwriting, composing, and playing as a sideman in groups on different instruments. I've been part of bands led by myself and been hired by other people, as well as composing for different groups of instruments from trios to full orchestras.

If there is interest, I can also provide worksheets based on the curriculum and standards held by the University of Oregon, and Portland State University.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Private home studio equipped with a many guitars, a piano, a Wurlitzer, electric bass and amplifier, two drum kits, and a beautiful kitty.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide guitars, amplifiers, and notebooks for all students even if they do not own guitars or amplifiers. I also make copies and email attachments of all homework, and record lessons and send them to students to listen to when practicing.

*** Specialties ***
I've been playing and studying guitar since I was seven years old. I've attended Berklee School of Music summer workshops, camps, seminars, and presented music theory papers at conferences at the University of Oregon. I can and am willing to teach any type of musical style or interest to any skill level!

Kyle was great. Very knowledgeable and engaging. Thinks outside the box and taught me about the underlying structure of music in one lesson that will help me break out of "just taking lessons" to being able to improvise, understand the keyboard and enjoy playing. Just the kind of teacher I was looking for!

Kyle is an incredible teacher. His lessons are the perfect balance of fun, relaxed, and challenging. His passion is infectious, especially when delving into music theory. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to get a fuller, deeper understanding of music and how it works.

Eric H.

Portland, OR

Spoken, written, or read, let me help you with whatever you need.

About Eric

Hello! My name is Eric H. and I have recently graduated from Oregon State University with a B.A. in English and minor in Writing. This makes me ideally suited to tutor anyone who seeks help with any aspect of the English language.

Since high school and throughout university I have been tutoring peers and classmates in the intricacies and nuances of the English language. Frequently, these have also been International students where English is their second language, so I have experience in tutoring ESL.

My writing and critical analysis skills have also been acclaimed by my professors, whic
h I will be glad to show you upon request. Writing is my passion, and I hope through my services I can share that with you.

Katherine F.

Portland, OR

Experienced English teacher for decades available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of speaking, listening, reading and writing skills.

I specialize in business, general English and test preparation, typically using Azar, Cambridge and Barron's books, and typically use a white board, CD player and numerous handouts. I recommend 100-minute classes at least three days a week for five to twelve weeks. I do not charge additional tuition for up to 6 students.

James B.

Lake Oswego, OR

I teach English using power point slides, videos and games. I make learning fun and interactive.

Most importantly I teach to meet your needs. For example if you are having trouble writing emails, or need to prepare a report, or talk to colleagues, I can customize the lesson to address your specific needs.

If you want to prepare for a test, improve your small talk skills, or improve your performance at work, I can help.

Our lessons will be all about you!!!

Catherine C.

Portland, OR

I have been teaching English Language Learners since 2004, and can teach all levels, from beginner to highly advanced. I help my students become comfortable, confident speakers of natural, everyday English. Last year three of my ESL students won top placements in a national writing contest. I have used the Cambridge texts for instruction, but also like to use authentic sources, such as newspapers and magazines. Let me help you demystify grammar and make writing a pleasure instead of a chore!

About Catherine

I'm an expert, advanced level English/ESL teacher of over 10 years experience. I received my first degree, a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Music, from the University of Oregon in 1980, and in 2002 I concluded a Teacher Training Program through Northwest Christian College and acquired licenses to teach ESL and middle school maths -in which I was rated Highly Qualified. After a year of substitute teaching in Hillsborough, I relocated to St Paul Island AK, where I taught math and music.

From 2007-2015 I taught English in Prague, in the Czech Republic I speak Czech (a Slavic language, rela
ted to Russian and Polish) at an intermediate level, as well as a little bit of French and Italian. As an English teacher, my specialities are building your vocabulary, making grammar understandable and helping you learn to love writing!
