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 st
udent 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 appr
oach 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 m
y 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

Tamari is excellent with our 7y/o daughter. She is very thorough and detailed in her instruction. We love how she involves us, the parents, in the lesson. We could not be happier.

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 y
ears 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 everyone 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.

Faisal really broke down the Arabic letters in a way I've not seen anyone do it before. I was really able to grasp the concept during our first lesson. I can't wait for the next lesson!
