About Ilona
For my tutoring sessions I use skills that include goal-directedness, I teach how to organize learning in small steps and how to set them up; I always strive to motivate and engage my students to make the learning interesting and fun; I also use self-control skills to teach how to avoid distractions and I use different focusing strategies. I use positive mind set skills to teach how to use failures as a learning opportunities.

I have a Master's Degree (2012) in teaching English to speakers of other languages, and Bachelors in Music Education (2010), both from Florida Atlantic University, as well as degree in violin performance from Poland.
I studied piano in Poland for 10 years & taught both piano & violin for over 20 years. I also teach flute & cello for the past 5 years, as I studied them during my Music Education program.

I
teach music for over 24 years using the traditional and Suzuki methods. I am a fan of the Essential Elements 2000 for string instruments, and the Alfred's Piano Library for piano. Alfred's piano library can be used for any age as they also have books especially made for adult learners. I also like their music flash cards.
For teaching music theory I mostly used Master Theory.

I personalize every lesson, and always set goals for my students. Most of my violin students are members of the Florida Youth Orchestra as well as Gold Coast Youth Orchestra and my piano students participate in Pompano Beach competition and the annual Piano Guild auditions.
I teach any age and any level, and always stress that learning a new instrument is very similar to learning a new language, it needs a lot of patience, persistence and repetitions. My lessons are customized to my students needs, and are work in progress as they needs may change over time. I always remind my students that music can give them instant gratification when they learn to play favorite songs.
I always encourage my students to tell me about their music preferences, so I can incorporate them in their music lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
All my tutoring sessions include reviews of previously learned material and if possible the use of technology. I use students books but often bring extra study materials if necessary.
All my lessons include: technique: I like to use the Finger Power for piano students and Essential Elements for my string students, and scales for both.
music theory: I use Master Theory or other books such as Hal Leonard's Piano Note spellers & Piano Music Theory books for younger ages, music flash cards to support learning notes and musical terminology, and of course the fun part performance.

Besides Essential Elements 2000 for strings I also use String Tunes and Fiddle Runners to add more fun to the lessons. For piano students I use Holiday Treats book, which comes in 2 different levels: Beginner & Intermediate, so my students have a new songs for a specific holiday.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I always bring violin with me to be able to show what I teach.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The students needs to have their books and assigned material ready for tutoring. Instrumental students needs to have their music books & instrument available as well as a pencil. I always stress with my students to be organized and prepared for their lesson, this way they will be able to focus better during the lesson. I bring my violin with me. I also ask that the room where the lesson takes place to be free of any distractions, such other siblings or any other noise. The quiet environment helps in faster learning.

*** Specialties ***
I tutor most K-12 subjects and prepare students to take ACT, SAT, GRE tests.
Music genres: Classical, traditional, Suzuki, Popular, Celtic, fiddle, Blues

Experienced, knowledgable and persistent in teaching. I did not think I will be able to learn fast, but Ilona helps in every step. From holding the bow rightly, to using fingers, learning the language of music, she is patient and persistent. I recommend her without reservation..

I've been teaching math for almost 10 years and my students have been able to ace subjects they considered difficult. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to understand what it is you're having trouble with and as time goes on you'll be able to solve those problems. I specialize in worksheets with repetitive problems because practice makes perfect! I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

No show for first session. Second session via phone while driving with bad reception. Couldn't answer questions stating that they were Physics, not Earth Science. (Yes my daughter is enrolled in an Earth Science.) Disorganized, lacks knowledge, inattentive.

We had some bumps in the road as we were new to the program Ms Charlotte used, however once we were finally connected the lesson went well. My son Jake is 9 and is struggling with vocabulary and reading comprehension and he is not a fan of tutoring, however Ms Charlotte was able to win him over in the first lesson so that says a lot about her ability to engage children.

I've been a tutor for a total of 5 years, and teacher for 1, and a TA (Diff Eq/Linear Algebra) for 1. When I was 18 I was invited by a Science Academy in Houston, Tx to be a teacher for a year, so I have lots of experience designing good material and explaining things. I can teach everything from Algebra to Diff Eq to Linear Algebra and Mechanics of Solids, as well as test prep.

I'm very friendly and I prioritize making my students feel comfortable with me as they would a friend. I also like to make my lessons fun, and joke around and engage a lot. Lots of back-and-forth questions and dialogue. My schedule is flexible (weekends included), and I'm available to work via skype as needed and on-call in case of an academic emergency.

I have been tutoring math to students and friends as far as i can remember. Depending on the student, i can help by making worksheets and guiding the students problem to problem. Also if they need homework help, I'm always happy to help. Math is my favorite subject and i enjoy seeing my students accelerate because of me.

About Muhammed
Since I moved to sugar land , I have gone from Commonwealth elementary, to Fort Settlement, Clements high School and now to University of Houston. My major is Electrical Engineering on Drone Technology and also Im about to graduate from The Ocean Corporation as an underwater welder on February 2 2018. As for me i learn faster hands on, or visually because once you see something its not that hard to forget it. I love learning and think that there is always more knowledge out there to enhance your learning experience. I got an A in both Calculus 1 and 2 at UH and now im taking Calculus 3 this upcoming semester.
I look forward to meeting y'all, and helping you build a better future.

Math to me is a very easily teachable subject, and something everyone can understand because it's a logic based subject. However, math is scary and can be tough on a lot of students. I have spent years tutoring and teaching my younger cousins who have struggled with math, and they always come out happy with their results. I teach in math in a way that breaks down the problem, and I explain each facet of why what is happening happens. This allows the child to really grasp the concept of the problem and actually teaches them the "why" and the "how" that more often than not, they're not taught in school.

Math is something I'm extremely passionate about, as I am a Senior Accounting Major at the University of Houston Main Campus. I love to see my peers grasp a new concept and it's fun for me to be a part of that process! Math can be extremely interesting and it's always my goal when I tutor to share that same excitement I have for math with whoever I am helping!

About Mohammad
I am a Senior dual degree student studying Accounting and Psychology at the University of Houston. I currently am in the Professional Program in Accountancy (PPA) program, an accelerated program in which I will receive my BBA and Masters in Accounting in 5 years. Tutoring is something I've always done throughout my life, whether it be with my younger cousins, or if it be with my friends in my rigorous courses. It's something I always take the time out of my day to do, and it's something I'm extremely passionate about!
