Award-Winning Teacher - Learn English Quickly & Accurately.

English is my native language and one of my specialties..

About Matthew
Hi.. My name is Matt. I'm a very energetic, friendly, understanding & passionate music coach who has worked with students & clientele throughout the US. Possessing more than 25 years of music training & music industry experience, I've been able to take people's Playing to amazing levels.

In my musical travels I've networked or shared the stage with many famous NW music legends:
1.) Roger Fisher- Heart-2013 Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame Inductee
2.) Lynn Sorensen- Paul Rogers/Bad Co/KZOK's Spike & Impalers
3.) Donny Evola - Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche/Foghat
4.) Jeff Kathan- Paul Rogers/Bad Company/Montrose
5.) Doug Mcgrew- Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche Singer/Operation Mindcrime
6.) Update - For the last year I have been playing off and on with Rudy Parris from NBC TV's "The Voice". Season 3 - Team Blake. He is an incredible music
ian and I'm proud to call him and his manager my friends. His new album coming out is nothing short of amazing.

In fact everyone I've mentioned above are pro all the way and great guys as well. I"m honored to have played with them.

I challenge my students to view music more than just as a "skill", but also a tool to communicate effectively and to combat life's obstacles.

I have had many guitar teachers myself including one true Famous Rock Star legend here in Pacific NW. Congrats Rog. U Earned It, & inspire myself, & others everyday.

You got to know the rules 1st, before you can then break the rules. This is how you develop your own unique style. And it's what separates the Pro Players from the rest of the pack.

But even if you don't want to play professionally, maybe you just want to learn a few chords, licks, songs, for yourself, or to impress friends. That's okay too!

I welcome every level and style. I always learn something from my students.
That's what music is all about. Learning & trading tips and licks from other musicians.

Bottom Line Is... I can help you learn and progress on your instrument faster...

Let me be the Music Coach to get you there!

*** Lesson Details ***
The most important thing in a lesson with me is to learn while having FUN! I am a very laid-back teacher who wants to focus on music making you smile. We will choose material and a pace of learning that will keep you excited to rehearse and return the following lesson improved!

PERSONALIZE your guitar lessons by learning techniques used by your favorite artists in "their" songs.
FEEL FREE learning in a comfortable atmosphere where you can excel successfully as a musician!
CONQUER shyness and insecurities by unleashing the dynamic performer in you!

Most All Styles/Genres/Experience Levels Taught - We go over everything systematically. Music Theory, Songwriting, Chords, Scales, Determining Key Of Songs, Performance, etc

After 3 to 6 months, you should expect to be playing some of your favorite songs and artists accurately

Be sure to check out some of my you tube demos. Let me be the Music Coach to get you there!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a Sound Proof Pro Recording Studio, PA System, guitars, basses, amps, drums, recording gear, mics, mic stands, strobe & lights, fog machine, seating for parents.

Sorry No Disco Ball Yet.. You Can Bring Your Own If You Want Though.
I've Got Some Bell Bottoms Somewhere Around The Studio Here.

*** Travel Equipment ***
*** Brand New*** Now Offering Music Lessons Online (From My Recording Studio To Your Home via Skype)
I'm really excited to add that to offer lessons online through TakeLessons! It's a great thing to get to work with students all over this country and I'm looking forward to help pioneer the future of music lessons!

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.

My Unique Specialty - is teaching students the rudimental basics 1st, & then how to copy your favorite artists off the CD, radio or iPod, almost note for note. Believe me, it can be done. You just have to know what to listen for..

Brand New - MEASURE your success by recording your music progress along the way. I do own a recording studio, so we can record students progress via audio or video and then post to my YouTube channel.

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!

Reading Comprehension and Essay Writing are my levels of interest in teaching since I have 9 years of experience working with K-12 in in home and private online tutoring sessions.

About Shirley
Hi I'm Shirley,

I love teaching kids the beginning steps of learning how to read. This is a gift for
children who will succeed in life from developing a foundation to build up from.
Also, I put value on the young adults today who recognize the strength in education. They can become confident after putting value on themselves by asking for tutoring instruction. I would like to see everyone succeed, so I put together my line of thought to encourage students to participate with me in online tutoring or in home learning, all levels of Algebra including Geometry, Reading, special needs, homework help, test preparation and anything else added to bring progress and stimulate minds.

My favorite subject is English. I speak Spanish fluently (if you need help with translations from Spanish to English I can definitely help you! English is my first language, and communications is my favorite subject. I can help with basic English speaking skills, writing papers, holding a conversation and pronunciation.
Through my program we will get you to speak English fluently!

About Virginia
Hi Guys!!
I love to teach and I would love to guide you on your English, Spanish and swimming lessons!
A little about me.. I graduated from Florida Atlantic University in Finance, and I am now completing a Masters at Nova Southeastern University in Criminal Justice.

English is my first language and also my favorite subject. I can guide you on how to pronounce words correctly, read, learn to speak fluently and confidently, and also teach you how to write papers for work/school.

I have speaking Spanish my whole life, (when I was a little girl- I was always the class translator for students that just got to the United States, since they couldn't communicate well) Iv'e been doing this for a very long time!

For the swimming lessons I have many references, and I will come to your house! I have been teaching for many years as it was
my first job! (My boss always gave me the kicking, crying and screaming kids) I can definitely deal with all types for personalities.

Please let me know if you have any questions for me, I would glad to answer you!

English is an essential language to know for many reasons: English is the language of science (mathematics is the quantitative language, and English is the qualitative language), English speakers earn more money than non-English speakers, English is the most commonly used language among foreign language speakers, English is based on an alphabet making it much easier to learn, and English is the language of the film industry making it easier for English speakers to assimilate new information and to no longer rely on subtitles.

I have supported students with both the English, Reading, and Writing sections of the ACT and the Reading, Writing & Language, and Essay sections of the PSAT and SAT for more than fourteen years. I have also supported university students with both the verbal and essay (issue and argument) sections of the GRE and GMAT for more than eleven years. Examination preparation continues to be one of my most successful endeavors. I look forward to ensuring your success

About Brandon
Students and Parents,

It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance, and I am elated you have found interest in my profile! The following is an extremely detailed description of my credentials, services, and mission. Please also read the "subjects" section for more specific information. I want you to make informed decisions and to receive the best service possible. I look forward to working with you!

Credentials:

Please know that I am one of the most, if not the most, highly rated academic coaches in the United States on another well-known website. Your "wise" "aunt" may have told you about it. I am willing to provide my services at a discount, since I am new to TakeLessons. Take advantage of this opportunity! You will be glad you did!

You and your loved ones will receive support from a coach who is well-educated and exper
ienced. In addition to my degree pursuits, I have taken several supplemental courses through online venues provided by Harvard University; Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT); University of California, Berkeley; and Columbia University. I have nine consecutive years of Master Gold Certification from the American Tutoring Association verifying my background, teaching expertise, and 2700+ hours of documented coaching in addition to my hours through TakeLessons. I am also lead editor for a Chinese consulting firm, specializing in international undergraduate and graduate applications from Asian students to American and Western European colleges and universities.

You and your loved ones will benefit from engaging with only one coach instead of numerous "tutors" for disparate topics. I am qualified to coach the quantitative (mathematics and science) and verbal (reading and writing) sections of every standardized examination I support. I have scored in the 99th percentile on the ACT (35), SAT (1560), GMAT (790: Q51, V47), and GRE (339: 169V, 170Q). Manhattan Prep, Princeton Review, and Kaplan have requested my GMAT and GRE expertise on multiple occasions.

You and your loved ones will work with a coach who has developed insight and perspective, having taught both middle school, high school, undergraduate, and graduate students and career-minded professionals from numerous states and countries. I have 15+ years of coaching experience: 6+ years as a private undergraduate/graduate tutor and 9+ years as an Academic Coach.

Services:

You and your loved ones will learn in quiet, comfortable environments and will benefit from flexible scheduling. For national and international students, I provide convenient online sessions. For local students, in addition to online sessions, I provide in-person (1-2 students) and small group (3-5 students) sessions at my office/conference room in Bloomfield Hills. I am able to accommodate most days and times and am available mornings, afternoons, and evenings during holiday breaks and summer months.

You and your loved ones will be given the resources you need to achieve success. I provide official materials (GMAC, ETS, ACT, College Board, etc.), unofficial materials (Manhattan Prep, Veritas, Princeton Review, Kaplan, Aristotle Prep, Barron, McGraw Hill, etc.), textbooks, workbooks, worksheets, equation sheets, vocabulary references, etc. I also furnish detailed solutions to session and homework exercises to ensure understanding and completeness.

Mission:

I act as a teacher, manager, mentor, organizer, counselor, resource expert, educational consultant, and motivational speaker. I create short-term and long-term solutions by utilizing comprehensive, multidimensional approaches. I dedicate my professional life to the success of my clients and the satisfaction of their parents (when applicable).

I build professional relationships based on respect, trust, and cooperation, allowing me to bridge the separation between the positions in which clients find themselves and those in which they would prefer to be. I also cultivate self-esteem, confidence, patience, consistency, and problem-solving skills to improve academic performance. I always relate the importance of education to both personal and professional pursuits to create interest and passion for learning.

Above all, I help clients to relax and to realize their full potentials. They often tell me that they are thankful for my open, honest, and supportive demeanor, which allows them to more easily share their thoughts and feelings. They are also inspired to share positive feedback with their colleagues, educators, classmates, and parents. Parents often tell me that they appreciate the thorough communication I provide and admire the influence I have on their children.

Our sessions are an investment in your future; not only will you learn information and techniques necessary to excel at your studies, but you will also gain a firm educational foundation that will serve both your personal and professional lives for years to come. I create the most meaningful experiences in my life by inspiring clients to achieve success. I encourage you to form your own opinion about this opportunity by contacting me now. Let's get to work!

Our lessons will cover conversational English first, moving on to vocabulary, grammar, spelling, tenses, and more as you become more comfortable. We will focus on the most common conversation topics, words and tenses so that when you are ready to learn the actual rules, you will already know the basics of English to use as your guide.

English is a tough language to master, but it is quite easy and fun to get started! I am excited to meet you, help you, and learn from you, too!

About Patrick
My name is Patrick McInerney; it's so nice to meet you! When I am not working, I love to watch old movies, go to comedy shows, and babysit my godchildren (they are the cutest kids ever).

I have loved helping peoplease learn English for quite a while; as a teenager, I worked at a restaurant with many friends from El Salvador who needed help getting comfortable with the basics of English. They, in turn, helped me learn Spanish, a language I had always wanted to know. Once we could understand each other, I found that I had been missing so many possible frendships, simply because of a language barrier!

I studied film in college (and helped release two silent films from the Library of Congress!), and currently work in real estate management. When I moved to Oklahoma around 2013, I helped raise my godchildren nearly from the time they were b
orn. I helped teach them English (and a little bit of sign language and Spanish), showed them the joy of reading and learning, and had an all around wonderful experience.

My greatest pleasure is helping people in whatever way I can; if you are having trouble with English, I would love nothing more than to help you remove that barrier and see what the world has to offer you once you know this essential world language.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to let me know, day or night. I look forward to meeting you, helping you, and learning from you, too!

We will learn to read and pronounce, the vocabulary you need for a beginner level (and some extra if you would like) and, of course, grammar (present, past and future tenses, plurals etc.). We will also work on getting used to listen and watch in English, as well as communicate.

About Daria
What makes me a better option in comparison to native speakers? I'm specializing in teaching French as a foreign language. I also learned French (English) as a foreign language, so I know and understand all the difficulties you may meet during your studying process. Due to my understanding of all that, I can adopt better the methods of our work and my explanation.
What I love the most about my work? It's seeing my students' success and progress. For that aim, I'm always attentive to my students' needs and abilities to learn a subject. I try to find the best way to their understanding according to individual characteristics.

Since my childhood, I knew that languages are my passion. That's why I graduated from the pedagogical university back in Ukraine (my native country) at the faculty of foreign languages and also studied at the un
iversity in Switzerland. I went abroad to improve my French and English as well as to learn psychology and sociology. I had an opportunity to live in a French-speaking country, to have everyday language practice, and to learn how to live on your own.
