About Valeria

Some subjects can feel boring and monotonous, and that is why my teaching technique allows my students to enjoy the subject matter. I want my students to grasp the importance of an education, so I create fun and entertaining lessons for them. I engage in a friendly manner, and subtly explain the information in way that enhances their learning capability. Students should expect a manageable course load that involves concepts of their homework assignments, upcoming quizzes, and final examinations. Additionally, I tend to spontaneously create questions and problems to verify their level of comprehension and critical thinking. Over a period of time, they will incrementally learn how to deal with new ideas. My students will master their work and gain the strength and motivation to tackle their

I need her help with ORGO and PHYSICS, she was able to gel me understand the material in a much "easier" perspective. I really appreciate her time and effort to help her students. I recommend her completely. Online scared me at first, but it actually is just the same so I don't suggest to let that fare you away from the idea.

Valeria is awesome! She breaks down everything in to smaller, simpler steps that I can follow. I could never understand what my professor was talking about in class, but after going over it with Valeria, I finally get it!! She goes above and beyond to provide any other extra examples to help me practice, and is always patient.

Excellent teacher!

As I've worked with Ilona and gotten to know her as my teacher, I realize that she really truly cares that I learn well and learn the proper way. She can be tough and gives me a good amount of work to do, but it's all because she wants me to learn and learn well. If I'm unable to complete an assignment she just laughs and says "Life happens" - she's very understanding. She's very patient and encourages me all the time. I often will make a comment such as "I stink at this" and she'll tell me I'm too hard on myself and piano is a learning experience. Obviously teaching is her calling in life and she's excellent at it! I would recommend her to anyone who wants to learn the art of playing the piano.

Very professional and patient

Ms Olsen has been giving my daughter piano lessons for a year. She comes to our home and is very professional, timely and patient. My daughter has made great progression with her piano, she looks forward to her lessons and practices without me having to remind her. It's so convenient that she comes to our house, and she communicate with me . I would highly recommend her.

Voice Has Never Been Better

In my now four years with her, Ms. Olsen has been an amazing, kind, and awesome teacher to have and work with. If it wasn't for her, my voice wouldn't sound as beautiful as it would have sounded without her teaching me. Going from classical songs to Italian songs to now modern/pop songs, my voice has gone through many different techniques to help my singing become better, which it has. Overall, I have learned a bunch from Ms. Olsen and I wouldn't want a different teacher either way. I am really happy my mother asked me if I wanted to take voice lesson. Thank you Ms. Olsen! :)

Singing
A shining star

Cymbaline Olsen is a shining star. Her talent and energy is boundless. Her ability to calmly listen, to sculpt, and to mold vocalists of all ages, ranges and abilities is second to none. Many acclaimed vocalists have minimal strengths in terms of "coaching-up" less competent vocalists. Cymbaline, however, is a natural teacher. She is a rare talent in that regard. Cymbaline's strength is teaching and performance. Her expertise in music theory, vocal phrasing and vocal scales is extraordinary. Cymbaline can teach you that Yes...you Can Sing....And Yes, you will!
I highly recommend Cymbaline for your Vocal Lessons.

Chris did a good job of meeting me halfway, encouraging me to apply to the colleges I was already interested in, and telling me about a few more I’d never heard of. I’m now going to one of the latter and am so glad I booked a few hours with Chris!

I knew I couldn't study for the test by myself as soon as I saw the first page of math questions. Chris makes dusting off a decade of math a matter of a little study; one of my classmates even helped me out, too, and I’m now a grad student in the field of my choice.

I would like to start off by saying, I was very nervous about hiring a tutor for my first grader! I wasn't sure about the dynamics of my daughter with someone she didn't know in our home working on "school stuff" that was already a topic of anxiety. But all that went out the window when we met Matt! My husband and I sat at the table with Matt and my daughter and presented her strengths and weaknesses. Matt jumped RIGHT IN and picked up on exactly what she needed help with within minutes. He kept it fun and exciting for her, even when she started to get tired. He used a calm voice and steady lessons to keep her engaged and LEARNING. Matt came right down to a first graders level and used simple words and instruction. After only two hours and the end of our session, she was mocking Matt's instruction and repeating numbers and sequences to her dad and I with confidence! Matt continued to encourage her through out the lesson and kept thing light and humorous. Evee was laughing and smiling with him from the first moment. My daughter is quite shy around strangers and by the time Matt left, out daughter not only shook his hand, but gave him a giant hug and asked me when he was coming back again. Matt is an amazing tutor and I would very HIGHLY recommend him to any parent looking for the extra help. He was energetic and made learning fun for my daughter. After only two hours, she had A LOT more confidence about Math and numbers and coins. Without any hesitation, I would tell any parent to not be nervous about hiring a tutor, and to feel assured and relaxed to hire Matt. There is not a single thing I would critique about his lesson or his ability to work with a 7 year old. He got right down to work and didn't waste a single moment of time. His lessons were full and easy-going and targeted our specific area of need. My husband and I absolutely loved working with Matt, he was an absolute pleasure. I would highly recommend him to any one! Thank you Matt and WyzAnt for putting our fears at ease and helping my daughter get up to par! Confidence in school work for my daughter is PRICELESS to me and I have Matt and WyzAnt to thank for taking a lot of the fear and panic out of getting there ourselves. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Matt is wonderful. He is tutoring both of my elementary school children and they really like him a lot. He takes his time with the children and gives them both his full attention. As a working single mother, my schedule can be hectic. Matt is very flexible with his schedule and very accommodating with changes in my plans week to week and I truly appreciate that! I am excited to see how the kids will do this next grading period with Matt helping them, because I already see a little more confidence in their approach to schoolwork. I highly recommend Matt as a tutor, he's professional and a pleasure to work with.

Kelly spent two quarters with our son when he was struggling with 5th grade math and helped him raise his grades from Cs and Ds to a solid B. What made that even more impressive is that our son goes to a dual language school and most of the math lesson was in Spanish! Kelly has a great personality and relates well to both parents and kids. She was very accommodating and even picked our son up from school when we weren't able to. We highly recommend her.

Kelly is a brilliant teacher, who is multi-talented, inspiring and hard-working. Kelly makes learning fascinating and fun, while teaching her students the organizational and academic skills needed to do well now and in their future. Kelly brings out the best in her students, and my daughter now has excellent grades in high school English, History and Spanish as a result of working with Kelly. My daughter looks forward to her lessons because Kelly is a wonderful person to be around and is a joy to learn from. Kelly is always thinking about what is best for her students. She empowers them to be their own advocate at school and talk to teachers when needed. Kelly also takes the time to follow up with emails to parents after lessons and make helpful suggestions. I feel lucky to have found such a great tutor and mentor for my child, and I honestly think that anyone who hires Kelly will feel the same way!
