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.

About Nicholas

I take great pride in ensuring my student's are successful not only in the short term, but the long term as well. *** Lesson Details *** I have never used a set curriculum. I base my lessons off of the specific needs of each particular student. By speaking, and most importantly listening, to my students, their families, and their teachers, I am able to determine how to best be of service. I have never been a strict teacher. I work hard to develop a lasting relationship with students; ensuring they feel comfortable enough to be themselves. I strive to create an open, non-judgmental environment in which students can express their concerns and work through academic issues together. I have had tremendous success with this method. After a few months, all of my students have ...

Nicholas has a wonderful way with our son. He is patient yet persistent. He can motivate him to focus without being overly stern or too 'rah rah'. We study math and writing together and are happy with both. However, one of best parts is the interest Nicholas takes in our son, the questions he asks, and his ability to relate. He is attentive to organization, emotional intelligence, and the 'life skills' that lead to success - regardless of the exam, audition, try out, or job interview. We look forward to working with Nicholas for a long time.

I can not explain in a simple review how grateful we were to have Nicholas with our family. Not only was he incredibly caring, he was honest, punctual, and always prepared. I felt as though our son was one of his few select students. He took extra time to ensure my son was prepared for tests, quizzes, and even helped him with his high school applications. I think Nicholas' letter of recommendation helped my son tremendously; Nick focused on my son's strengths and helped explain the full situation to his new school. Nick was always able to make the lessons education, light hearted, and jovial. He found a way to find things my son was interested in, and cultivate that interest. My son went from having severe behavioral problems that prevented him from academic success, to acceptance into a private catholic high school, wanting to be a teacher to special needs youth. I feel Nick had a tremendous impact on my son. He was not only a tutor, but a mentor to him. He did more for us than can be explained in a simple online review. If anyone is considering working with him, if he has availability, he won't for long...TAKE IT! My only complaint was he fills up quickly, sometimes we were stuck with unfavorable times (7-9pm at night, or early afternoon on the weekend). Regardless, he found a way to make it work. I am thankful for him. God bless!

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.

About Jonathan

About I am a Florida native, active doctoral student, teacher and practitioner. My career includes performing and recording as a guitarist and teaching subjects such as music or math. Grade-school academic strengths in mathematics represent my enthusiasm for the subject. The math equivalent in music can be considered music theory, which is another passion of mine. I hope to take these rounded characteristics to teach and influence others with what I have learned in my education and career thus far. Education & Teaching Experience: I am currently pursuing my Doctorate of Musical Arts from Shenandoah University and hold a Masters of Music from the University of Akron and a Bachelor of Music from Stetson University (all degrees with a guitar performance emphasis).

Yegues S. Lake Worth, FL

About Yegues

I have taken flute lessons from the flute professor at FSU as well as guitar lessons from Dr. Leo Welch here at FSU. I have given multiple lessons and master classes on both flute and guitar. I have also been a music theory tutor for many students. I have a lot of experience with both giving and receiving lessons, so I have learned many ways to adapt to any situation. I love laughing and making jokes, which is one of the most important aspects of any teacher. Lessons should be something to look forward to rather than dreading to spend time practicing. I do prefer being more laid back as a teacher, but still know when it's time to get more serious about the work. *** Lesson Details *** I am laid back most of the time time, but I still expect whatever we assigned to be practiced for ...
