Anna K.

Muncie, IN

About Anna

Professional, active musician will share the joy of playing music with the students. You can count on having fun, effective lessons, and real results fast!

I was born in Cracow, Poland. From an early age I had a deep interest in all types of music. I was encouraged by my parents and quickly developed a talent. I began my musical education at the age of seven studying piano. I studied at The Frederic Chopin Academy of music in Warsaw, Poland and then at the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University where I received a Bachelor of Music Degree in French Horn performance. Later
I received a Master of Music in French Horn Performance and post Master Certificate, both from the DePaul University. I am an active freelancing musician in the Chicago area. (Chamber Opera of Chicago, Northbrook Symphony Orchestra, Oak Park and River forest Orchestra, Skokie Symphony, Lira Ensemble, Highland Park).
I have been teaching piano, music theory and French horn in the Chicago area for five years. I enjoy working with both children and adults.
To broaden my knowledge about teaching I completed courses: Studio Teaching as a Career, Teaching Excellence, and Brass concepts at DePaul University.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students will learn to play piano or horn in a pleasant atmosphere. Additionally they will learn elements of music theory so they can quickly start to play on their own. This will broaden their understanding of music and they will be able play pieces they like. I have method books and studies for any level of playing, but students are welcome to bring their own. I think anyone can learn to play and I can help to achieve this dream. I recommend the book by Daniel Coyle: The Talent Code. Greatness Isn't Born. It's Grown. Here's How.

*** Studio Equipment ***
DePaul University - regular pianos available rooms reserved
At Home Studio- Casio keyboard in living room, french horn,
seating for parents.
In case of horn students they would have to have their own mouthpiece and later on their own instrument. I have breathing equipment to help with playing as well.

*** Travel Equipment ***
My method of transportation would be CTA and walking :)

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in fun and effective teaching. I teach piano, french horn, music theory, ear training. Music is fun and this is how I teach.

I loved Ms. Anna's enthusiasm and constructive criticism. I have been playing horn for 7 years, and this was my first lesson. I have a ways to go, but I loved how she was willing to help me and give me tips in ways that you wouldn't get in your typical band class. I am definitely looking forward to our lessons!! 10/10 recommend for anyone looking for lessons, whether it is your first or your 100th

Anna is a great teacher. We started off with 10 lessons to give our 11 year old son a head start as he was keen to switch from Trombone to French Horn. With Anna's help, he made it! French Horn is a difficult instrument to play compared to other brass woodwind instruments, and finding Anna to help our son has been really beneficial. We highly recommend Anna and we will be signing up for more lessons. In addition, to those who are considering Online lessons, they have been great. We have been using a good webcam (Logitech from Amazon) together with Skype and it has worked out. Thank you!

I have taken lessons from Kelly for about a year and a half. I am constantly surprised at the quality of lessons and the detail in homework she provides me. She keeps me motivated when life gets busy and it is hard to find the time. Even though it is my goal to learn Spanish, I feel it is equally her goal to help me succeed. I have tried several methods and having instruction from Kelly ties everything together.

I HIGHLY recommend her if you are interested in learning any area she instructs. You won't be disappointed.

Kelly works with two of our daughters. Josie, who is in kindergarten, has just about completed the Lexia kindergarten curriculum. Josie's teacher is really pleased with her performance in school so far. Elizabeth is in 4th grade and Kelly works with her on Moby mathematics. Elizabeth made the honor role this year with all A's and B's. We could not be more pleased with our children's performance in school. This can be attributed to working with Kelly over the summer and on weekends. Kelly has many user friendly fun resources on-line that allow the children interact with Kelly one on one. I definitely would like to recommend Kelly for tutoring. She is absolutely fantastic!

Heather B.

Anderson, IN

About Heather

I married my husband on June 28, 1997. We have four children. Our oldest daughter was born on August 15, 2001 and was diagnosed with Down Syndrome. I quit working to stay home and devote more time to her and her needs. In 2003 we had boy/girl twins and life took on a hectic business. As they grew older, I decided to homeschool my brood. We moved from Colorado to Indiana to be closer to my husband’s ailing mother and the slower pace of life has allowed me time to cultivate my interest in gardening, cooking, and sewing! In 2013, we traveled to China and adopted our second daughter with Dow
n Syndrome.

PLEASE NOTE: I SPECIALIZE IN WORKING WITH KIDS WHO HAVE LEARNING DEFICIENCIES AND WHO ARE STRUGGLING TO KEEP UP IN SCHOOL. I will be more than happy to assess your child and let you know if I am the right tutor for you, but will also be honest with you and tell you when you should pursue someone who works with the more on track child or those who need someone face face.

Brian C.

Westfield, IN

About Brian

I've been teaching middle school math for over 15 years and have tutored in math from first grade through pre-calculus for over 12 years. I enjoy explaining ideas and concepts in practical, real-life ways to help with understanding. I feel it is not always about the correct answer, but the correct process. I have years of experience working with English-language learners and students with IEPs. I believe that building confidence is the fastest way to build knowledge. Along with content, I work with students on how to take notes, ask questions, test anxiety, and organization.
