Jillian V.

Harrison, NY

About Jillian

I have a Master's degree in Music Therapy, am a nationally board certified music therapist (MT-BC); performer and vocal instructor (Bachelor's in Classical Voice); certified yoga instructor and meditation guide (200+); certified and attuned Reiki master; professional freelance writer and editor.

...I find joy in a lot of places! And often I find these areas of study inform and augment each other.

Music therapy has afforded me a great deal of experience working with children, teens, and adults with special needs including, autism, Down's syndrome, cerebral palsy, emotional disturbances a
nd developmental delays as well as teens and adults with psychosocial issues, including but not limited to anxiety, depression, grief, ADHD, personality disorders, and more.

I incorporate my experience as a therapist into the educative setting.

As a voice teacher, I want to help my students settle comfortably into their own musicality by showing them the building blocks of a solid technique, drawing particularly from the things that helped me grow as a vocalist. I want my students to feel strong in their body, comfortable and relaxed in their breath, and confident in their performance.

I have worked professionally as an editor of scholarly writing on both the college and post-college level, as well as a professional editor of multiple dissertations, and other publications. Being a creative person, I find language to be a wonderful way to express thoughts and emotions as well as communicate deeply with others.

As a certified yoga instructor, I teach in many locations throughout Westchester. I was trained at Yoga Haven in Scarsdale, New York with Betsy Kase, and earned a 200-hour certificate in Asana, Pranayama, and Meditation. I offer private yoga instruction and meditation at my home studio. My studio comes fully equipped with all yoga props, aromatherapy, and music. Hands-on-assists and personalized classes offered to deepen your experience.

It is a joy to offer Reiki to curious, open clients in need of energy healing. Reiki is a noninvasive energy healing technique totally separate of any religious affiliation and available to anyone. It is a difficult to describe the relaxing, soothing, and deep-healing effects of Reiki to someone who has never experienced.

Please feel free to inquire about any of my services!

*Note: If you don't see a time slot that is suitable to your needs but would like to try a session or lesson with me, feel free to register for the Flex Plan, and we will work out week-to-week times!!**

**Note: If you are interested in music therapy, please email me with a bit about yourself and your personal goals.

Tori S.

Cos Cob, CT

About Tori

I am a certified tutor with the National Tutoring Association. I am a student at Sarah Lawrence College where I study writing and psychology. I excel at math and English. I helped teach my AP Statistics course. During high school I tutored fellow students in various levels of math from Algebra 1 & 2 through AP Statistics.
I also helped fellow students with writing and grammar. I was the editor of my high school literary magazine and helped students with editing. I also did a day of service in high school where I helped 1st graders with their arithmetic worksheets.
I also have experience tut
oring elementary students in reading, reading fluency, and writing.
As a tutor, I tailor the techniques I use to the individual being tutored. People learn differently; it is important to use the particular student's strengths to help them understand and work through whatever they are struggling with. I am extremely patient and try my best to motivate my students and help them stay confident in their ability to work through anything!
I would like to tutor students in the areas of Greenwich, Old Greenwich, Cos Cob, Glenvillle, Riverside, Stamford, Rye, etc.

Christina T.

White Plains, NY

About Christina

Hi there. I've been teaching/tutoring college-level physics for 7 years. I have loved helping my students overcome their "fear" in physics and start having fun with it. Student's "aha" moment was my best reward! I have a PhD degree in physics from BU. I was an assistant professor before moving to tri-state area just a month ago.

I'm an easy-going person with great patience. My goal is to help students not only pass the test, but also have fun with physics as much as I do. I look forward to meeting you!

Christine is patient and explains concepts really well. She makes you feel comfortable asking any question and no question is a dumb question. I'm learning the concepts of Physics well.

Melanie D.

Port Washington, NY

About Melanie

Hi! I'm Melanie and I'm excited to start working with you! I began studying trumpet in the 4th grade and eventually switched to the euphonium (or baritone horn) in my senior year of high school. I played both instruments in college for different campus groups, such as the Off-Broadway On Campus pit orchestra, the Pep Band, and the Wind Symphony. I received my B.A. in Psychology from the University of Rochester in 2012, with a minor in music. While at the University of Rochester, I tutored my fellow undergrad students in psychology, while also teaching private euphonium lessons.

I know how i
mportant it is to really enjoy what you're learning, so I try to make learning fun for all my students.

Melanie is a natural teacher and a talented musician. She is very knowledgeable and can explain concepts in such a way that they are easy to understand. I had never played a brass instrument before but Melanie was patient and took the time to answer my questions and correct my form before I started trying to play. After a couple of lessons, I was able to play simple songs from the beginner book she recommended. I look forward to continuing my lessons with her!

The Revised SAT: What High School Students Need to Know

High school students can say "goodbye" to the SAT - the old version that is. Starting in March 2016, The College Board will introduce a redesigned SAT for students gearing up for college. So what do you need to know? The biggest difference to note is the essay portion at the end of the test. This will be an optional, timed, 50-minute essay depending on whether or not the school you are applying to requires it completed.

5 Important Language Learning Tips for Adults
Do you remember learning a language back in high school or college? If it's been several years (or decades), it's normal to feel a bit lost when you're ready to get back at it. And while receiving a formal education is wonderful for daily language practice, it isn't always practical. Amid all of your responsibilities as an adult, finding the time to re-learn a language is undoubtedly a challenge! Working with a language tutor, along with taking advantage of the many language-learning r

How to Write With Humor: Finding Your Voice
A writer's voice is what attracts readers to stay on the page, finish the piece, and return for more. Voice makes writing uniquely the author's, and it can sink the poem, feature story, or op-ed piece for one reader and elevate it for another. As you're learning how to write with humor, keep the following things in mind! Humor is Important to Voice Humor can be a great part of voice. In fact, some would argue that it is a necessary part. Humor helps the reader: remember key points want
