William P.

Waterbury, CT

About William

Hello everyone. I have a bachelor's degree in Vocal Performance from Valley Forge Christian College and I have been performing since I was three years old. I play several instruments and have learned the key skills needed to be a successful musician in any genre. With five years teaching experience and a willingness to learn, I have discovered new ways to help my students become better musicians. I can show you the ways to hone your skills through different drills and practice strategies. Also, I can teach you ways to keep your instrument working at top shape by keeping your physical health in
good condition. I want to teach you what you want to know with a little push to expand your abilities. I can also give you great tips ln running, and help you with your biblical studies. I hope to hear from you soon.

My daughter has been taking lessons with Will for just over a year. I am amazed by the progress she has made. The goals she set a year ago were easily attained with Will's guidance and training. In addition, he is incredible flexible, kind and compassionate.
We look forward to the growth we know our daughter will achieve in the coming year working with Will.

Douglas S.

Bridgeport, CT

About Douglas

I combine my two decades of experience as a professional tutor and corporate writer with my own personal understanding of the learning struggles faced by students to create unique methods for every student to learn, regardless of the subject. I use creative innovations to make learning fun and enjoyable for my students. My students quickly see how much I care for their progress and success. Many have chosen to retain me as their tutor for more than a year.

I had the opportunity to work with Douglas a number of times during my tenure as a part-time instructor at SCORE Educational Center. What I noticed about him was that he related very well to the children he worked with - he was a very enthusiastic tutor of English and math! He was most generous with the "high fives" and praise, and he also knew how to get students back on track if their focus strayed. Also, I saw him work very well with the parents; he always took the time to patiently explain lesson plans and students' progress between sessions. I have known Douglas personally for many years. He was the one who encouraged me to work at SCORE Educational Center given my background in Education - I thank him for that because I enjoyed my time there very much while I was able to stay (unfortunately, I had to leave that position for a full-time job elsewhere). SCORE Educational Center is no longer in existence. Douglas currently works as an independent tutor, and given how long I've seen clients stick with him, I have no doubt that they are enjoying the same level of attention and enthusiasm he provided at SCORE. When he speaks about the progress of independent clients and how they respond to him, it is with enthusiasm and a glowing smile. If you are looking for a tutor that is intelligent, dedicated, enthusiastic, and simply great with kids and parents, then Douglas is your man.

Taylor P.

Hartford, CT

About Taylor

I am a 23 year old tutor, I have been teaching music for multiple years, and have worked with a wide variety of both students (young and old) and instruments. I like to take a relaxed, productive approach to teaching music to help students develop their own style and let their creativity flourish in ways that a traditional class in music wouldn't allow. I can help you learn what you want, and if you aren't quite sure what that is, I can help you along in the process.

Tamari W.

Milford, CT

About Tamari

Hi, there! My name is Tamar; I'm called Tamari, informally, and Tamara for the stage, and I can't wait to meet you!

I've been teaching private lessons for many, many years and have loved helping my students acquire new skills, master new pieces, and prepare for concerts and performances. Over the years, my younger students have earned Blue and Gold ratings at the Young Musicians' Festival in Fairfield U., some of them earning gold cups: This is a statewide event to encourage long-term commitment to the art, discipline and joy of music making.
I went to Indiana University's Jacob School
of Music and earned a Masters in Piano Performance, and Composition in the '90's. I sang all types of vocal music as well as prepared singers with vocal coaching and voice development techniques 20+ years.
I'm fun loving, patient, and optimistic-- these traits carry through in my teaching style,
One Size does NOT fit all--I approach the lesson plans for each student tailored to your learning style.
Over the past 23 years, my life experiences have encompassed other disciplines and compelled me to learn and acquire many other skills: my liberal arts as well as fine arts education lent itself to helping me work administrative jobs and even expanded into sales and public speaking. I have coached after school and SAT preparation to High School and College age students, helped with the preparation of legal and analytical documents, creative writing and editing assignments; and even tutored computer, social media and Microsoft Office & iWork Suite of applications to older adults.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals

As a fellow teacher, pianist and choral director, I know a fine musician and teacher when I see one, and I am happy to recommend Tamari Witkin as an outstanding teacher of piano, voice and composition. As a highly versatile, knowledgeable, multi-faceted musician and coach, she motivates her students of all ages, from beginner to advanced levels, to keep reaching for ever-higher levels. Tamari's enthusiasm and creativity as an instructor make taking lessons from her both interesting and fun. She skillfully and thoughtfully communicates the language, meaning and joy of making music. Tamari is exceptional in encouraging and motivating her students. These qualities are what make up the keys to what it's all about; the bottom line: one would be hard-pressed to find a better balanced and effective teacher of music.

Faisal H.

New Haven, CT

About Faisal

I started studying statistics in 2000, when I was studying Medical Sciences at Umm Al-Qura Unversity. In 2007, I got a scholarship to study Biostatistics at the University of Waterloo. I spent three years there studying undergraduate courses in Mathematics and Statistics. In 2011, I was admitted to the University of Vermont to study for a master's in Biostatistics. I can help students in understanding Statistics and Math more deeply. I used to tutor my colleagues in a Medical Sciences program and at Mathnasium Learning Center. So I think I have the ability to explain concepts so easily that ev
eryone can understand the material very well. My tutoring service is affordable compared to other tutors, and the reason is that I want to help people understand Statistics and Math without spending too much money. I am not looking for money as much as I am looking for helping people understand Statistics and Math.

5 Tips for Completing Fraction Worksheets
Struggling with learning fractions? It can take some time and repetitive practice to really get them down. Here, Tucson tutor Blake C. shares his best tips...

Basic Email Writing Skills for Professionals
Most of us are pretty comfortable with using email as a primary tool for written communication in our personal and professional lives. But while some shorthand and a couple of typos don’t do too much harm in a friendly email, the same speaks volumes in the workplace (and not in the fun, casual way you may think). Whether you’re communicating internally with colleagues and executives, or externally with your client base, polished email writing skills will come handy in your professional arsenal.
