Don does an outstanding job! He is able to connect authentically my son and customized the lessons to fit his learning style and needs. Don has drawn so much out of him musically and has also built a community of students that play together. He makes the lessons fun and engaging. He has opened up my 7-year old to the joy of playing and performing and has helped create a love of music. I highly recommend Don as a music teacher.

· Creative Writing · Online
I took a series of online creative writing lessons with Mrs. Taylor. She is one of the kindest and most intelligent persons I have worked with. She helped me find my writing style and patiently and carefully taught me about every aspect of creative writing. She told me not only about grammar and story structure, but also motivated and encouraged me to write a short story. From my first lesson with her, I knew that she is a gifted teacher, as she is knowledgeable and informed. Before taking lessons with her, I was writing in my journal, but now I have written my first piece. She provided meaningful and relevant ideas to help me find the flow of my story. Because of the excellent and exceptional way that she teaches, I have decided to continue with my creative writing.

As this is basics of English for beginners i would start with English grammar the first topic would be "Noun". A noun is a name of a person,place,animal, or thing.It is classified into Singular(single/one} for example book, cup, chair etc and Plural {more than one} for eg books ,cups,chairs etc.for the plural of most nouns add 's'.There are many other rules to make plural like add es ,some nous have different plural forms, we learn all of them as the classes progress.

Austin, TX

English is my native language. I have lived in different countries, traveled international and learned different languages as well and would love to help teach others.

About Hilary
I am a professional singer in Austin Texas. I play live shows, I have gone on tour and have released an album. I love teaching people what I know. After singing behind closed doors for a portion of my life and secretly dreaming of being a singer, one day, I decided to take the plunge and start living my dream. I began writing music, playing live shows and training to teach voice. Shortly after, I started accepting students and helped them conquer their fears.

After I conquered my own fears of singing, the world of opportunity opened up for me. I filled the role of choir director for a local church and my music now plays on Pandora, Spotify and I-tunes! I love to share my knowledge as a singer and aspire to teach fellow singers everything I know as a vocalist.

I have been taking lessons with Hilary for a while, longer than a year. I dont have a natural gift, and got interested in singing later in life, but she has helped me gain confidence and comfort with my voice. She is very bubbly and friendly. For me, it helps to have a teacher that puts me at ease since I am shy. She has helped me with pitch and voices. She is helping me work on vocal runs. I have progressed enough to start writing my own songs. BTW, her singing is amazing and I am happy for the opportunity to work with her!

Matías and I first met through the Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching program in 2008 and have remained in touch ever since. We have worked together and collaborated thtoughout the years in various ways. Matías is a dedicated and experienced teacher who strives to create memorable and practical lessons. He likes making students think out of the box and often brings his interests to the classroom, making for a content-based class. He is creative and tries new methodologies and ideas, as he is up-to-date on the latest language teaching trends. He is also fun and kind-hearted. I strongly recommend Matías and doubt you'll find a better language teacher.
