I provide College, High School, Middle School, Elementary School assistance and tutoring in writing with specialized expertise in the A.P.A. writing style.
In addition, I assist with business writing—proposals and presentations to reports and policy content.
I also teach business, grammar, math (elementary, basic, pre-algebra) writing to include essay and professional business writing.
As a doctoral student at the University of New England, I am currently studying educational leadership with an emphasis on transformative leadership. In addition, I hold a Master of Science degree in Strategic Leadership from the University of Mary located in Bismarck, North Dakota and a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from WGU Indiana in Indianapolis, Indiana.
I have more than 26 years of experience as an executive and senior leader in the supply chain/logistics industry. Furthermore, I have nearly six years of experience consulting in business management, quality control, con
During the same 26 years of my business career, I have been a professional musician - session musician and teacher. I was formally trained at the American Conservatory of Music and the Chicago Musical College, both located in Chicago. I won the Presidential Scholarship in Classical Guitar Performance at the American Conservatory of Music and another full-ride scholarship in Classical Guitar Performance to attend the Chicago Musical College.
My primary Classical Guitar Instructor at both institutions was Paul Henry. I also studied Rock Guitar with Dave Uhrich while attending both institutions and privately studied Jazz Guitar with Scott Reed. I studied voice with Audrey Evans at the American Conservatory of Music and Robert Long at the Chicago Musical College.
I have participated in Classical Guitar Master Classes with:
• Hubert Kappel
• Dale Kavanagh
• Eleftheria Kotzia
• Bruce Holzman
• Stephen Aron
• Raphaella Smits
• Richard Provost
• Nicholas Goluses
• William Buonocore.
*** Lesson Details ***
I design lessons individually according to the needs and "wants" of each student. I specialize in developing and correcting technique in technique to improve the student's overall skill. Students that dedicate the time and effort each week to practicing see rapid and sustained results.
However, if you have a busy life and merely want to learn guitar for personal enjoyment, I will design your lessons to develop your skill at a pace that works for you, which can fluctuate according to your schedule.
***Young & Special Needs Students***
I teach children as young as 13 years old and adults to the age of 70 years old. When teaching younger children and individuals with special needs, it is significantly beneficial for parents to attend each lesson - I have parent seating available. When parent(s) attend lessons, the parent can assist the younger student while practicing during the week at home.
In my experience, the overall musical development and progress of younger students improve considerably when parents are involved.
***Thoughts on Musical Talent***
Musical talent is a wonderful gift, but correct technique is not easily acquired without proper instruction. Your skill level eventually plateaus and your ability to learn and perform more complicated music is inhibited, unless you have a solid foundation in music theory as it applies to your instrument(s) as well as proper technique.
I can help you build this solid foundation and will guide you through the development of musical skills; correcting flaws in technique is my specialty.

I've been writing for many years, often professionally in a variety of different roles. No matter what you need, I can help you to find a way to say it better, more efficiently, or with greater poetry.
I worked as a professional Writing Tutor at the University of Southern California.
I later taught for five years at the New York Film Academy in Universal City, CA, where I taught a variety of Critical Studies classes to various levels of students, some in certificate programs and others working towards their M.F.A.
As a former English and Spanish double major, I have always enjoyed teaching at various levels. Most of my other work these days involves the writing and editing of short stories, screenplays and novels.
You’ll find that I have the education, background and experience to be an excellent instruct

Unlike most of the teachers, Mr. Paul put a lot of effort and creativity into planning his classes, which made them both stimulating and fun for us.
I also loved the fact that Mr. Paul always respected our opinions, and never made us feel stupid when we didn’t understand something. He was always very encouraging and willing to keep explaining until we got it.
I highly recommend him to anyone interested in extra lessons. He is definitely worth it!

Quick note on my passion for learning as a way of life ~
As a passionate lifelong learner, researcher, educator, tutor and coach, I embrace an unbounded curiosity of wonder and never ending exploration of an interdisciplinary approach to the scientific methods of learning, and acquiring knowledge that extend far beyond my university studies, into living my life highly engaged in as much experiential (first person) learning as possible. I love asking fresh, invigorating, boldly curious, audaciously barrier-busting, status-qua daring questions, as I feel passionately that, as Dr. Albert Einstein shared, "The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity."
US (German-born) physicist (1879 - 1955)
I'm great with structure, word choice, meaning, and intention. I can help with every stage, from brainstorming and helping you organize your thoughts to proofreading and making it shine before you hand it in.

I've had a book published and have written for a multi-national newspaper. I also got A grades right up until I finished college with English and Creative Writing. My style of teaching is very relaxed and informal, I want students to feel they can be equals with me, and gain confidence and be proud of their work. I set homework but I also encourage students to get creative in their own time and to show initiative! The most rewarding thing is that with writing, you can nowadays find so many outlets for your work - the sky's the limit!
Lessons can involve looking at literature and different styles of writing, as well as finding something that sparks the imagination and interest. I work especially well with young teens and pre-teens, as well as those who are looking to further their writing skills.
My name is Kimberley, and I'm a British singer/songwriter, and I love teaching young people about this amazing industry!

Each student is unique and different, and my goal is to teach in a way that's fun and interesting and keeps people engaged.
I teach all ages, young and old, novice to experienced, and take great joy in meeting new people and getting to know them and helping them learn.
Coaching can take place at your home or we can sit outside in my apartment by the pool, we can even go to a park and sit in the sunshine! I'm really flexible and want this to work for you at your own pace to help you reach your own goals.

I am a professional copywriter and published author with special focus on creative writing. My mentorship covers the basics of writing, from grammar to paragraph structure, to the more advanced topics of inspiration, creativity and dreams. Ultimately, my goal is to help you find good ideas within your own mind and convey them to a target audience.
My goal as a teacher is to unlock the creative potential within people. I believe that music education should empower the student to bring the contents of their imagination into full expression. Discipline and practice is only half the battle. You will learn all of the fundamentals of music theory, but the fun really begins when we start looking at your favorite songs and learning how to incorporate those ideas into your own creative process.
As a performing musician, I have fifteen years experience writing music for bands, studio recording, pressing cds and vinyl through record labels, touring nationally, writing and publishing two books on music theory, giving public talks for large audiences, and have been featured as interview guest on

I was homeschooled for high school and taught by my mother, who had a Master’s Degree in English education. Having this experience has equipped me with the proper skills to compose 4.0 papers on a consistent basis. I hope to help each student learn the same tricks that I did so that they can be on their way to sentence success!
I have an extensive range of genres that I’ve studied under including: ballet, Cecchetti, hip hop, lyrical, contemporary, jazz, commercial dance, pointe, and ballroom. I attended Grand Valley State University where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Dance in 2016. This degree has allowed me to book auditions, perform at concerts, and book my first movie (Pitchfork) in 2015. Currently, I am working with one of the lead choreographers in the industry, Glenn Douglas Packard, where I choreograph commercial dance to elite individuals for videography purposes. Dance is my passion and I want to be able to create that same feeling in the stude
In addition to dance, I also have an extensive love for health and wellness. In 2016, I took it upon myself to study independently for a personal training certification through the National Association of Sports Medicine (NASM). With this certification, I have been able to grow a clientele of 40 people and have started my own LLC, Alyssa Lenay Fitness. I am more than willing to educate people on the effects of a healthy lifestyle and what it takes to maintain one!
My personality is pretty energetic and bubbly compared to most traditional teachers. There is an advantage to this, in that I can guarantee that you or your child will learn in a positive and fun environment. I hope to meet you soon!
