Dan arrived 15 minutes early - good sign for the 1st practice !
Matisse (8yrs old) says "he is super good because he explains the notes in a way that I will remember".
I thought Piano lesson would be a drag for Matisse but he is really excited :) Happy Mom !!!

Dr. Tem is a wonderful teacher for any age and audience. If you only want to learn to play, then you will be satisfied. However, if you are interested in music as art and a form of expressing one self, you will find this is where Dr. Tem's ability to teach really shines through.

About Verena
Hello my name is Verena,
I am a German native speaker and currently teaching German at Berlitz Language Center in Orlando. I believe in the method of "Learning by doing" which means that I engage my students to actively use the new language, learn in a natural way using real life objects and creating real life situation.
I have a post graduate degree from a German University and worked for several years as a teacher in educational science and was additionally responsible for the supervision of Bachelor and Master Theses in German language.

On these grounds, I am ideally educated to help you with your verbal and written skills in German language. If you just want to be able to have social talks, ask for direction, order food, or if you are interested in intensive language skills - I am here to help you!

Verena was great! I really enjoyed my lessons with her. I thought it was going to be really difficult to pick up the language but she made it easy and fun! I’m traveling to Germany for work a lot and wanted to improve my basic conversational skills. I’ve already put my new skills to work with my German collogues over the phone. Not only was I able to understand a lot more of what they were saying but I could actually respond in full sentences. And I’m using my translation app much less now. One of my German collogues actually complemented me on my German pronunciation ! The German lessons were well worth the investment.

About Tamari (Tamara)
Hi, there! I'm Tamara and I can't wait to meet you!

On social media and for those who are more familiar, I'm Tamari. We all learn in different ways; some are more visual; others, auditory; some, kinesthetic--I combine a number of different modalities in my teaching, including direct feedback-teaching--once you learn a concept or skill, teach it, as soon as you possibly can, to someone else! -- this reinforces your own knowledge of the skill or concept!
I've been teaching private lessons for 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

Bridget has been a saving grace for my family, helping my 11 yr old daughter with math. Through her calm demeanor and patience she managed to help my daughter bring a failing math grade to a solid B. Bridget has been able to teach my daughter in a way that connects with her. Facing the rest of this long school year seems much easier knowing we have Bridget to help get us over those pesky humps with the dreaded 6th grade math.

I was born in rural Oaxaca and lived there until I was 16 years old and decided to leave my hometown, the reason, because as a student I felt that I wasn't getting a good education back there, and I decided to find a better school with more resources and excellent teachers, I have been a pro-activist in education, ranging from middle school kids in Mexico and USA and adults also, mainly focus on cultural exchanges and health, I'm an MD, pursuing Pediatrics as a specialty.

With this portal, I'm looking for students that want to live Spanish, learn words and sentences and situations that you can apply your knowledge, for travelling, homework, or to impress your parents or friends. I don't like to have a teacher-student relationship, but instead a friendship, like those in Facebook, that's my ideology, teaching as a form of life and not as
a mandatory request.
