I began playing guitar by ear around age ten. I learned rock songs from records for a few years, and then I began a more serious study of theory in high school.

Aloha! I am a student from Hawaii! Wow, my words are not enough to express how awesome Jeremy is as a teacher. What a wonderful person he is, he is so friendly and patient. It is extremely difficult for me to learn anything but he make it super easy. It’s also really cool that he has an online option so I can learn anywhere. I must say, I am very proud of myself and how much I’ve accomplished through his teachings. I highly recommend Jeremy and you will not regret it! Amazing teacher and I am grateful. Thank you Jeremy and please don’t ever stop teaching! Mahalo!

John is such a great coach and teacher! He coached me for my upcoming play. John created such a safe environment, asked so many thought provoking questions, challenged me, provided innovative ideas, and gave me great insight into my character development. He is extremely professional, always very prepared for our sessions, and gives very helpful feedback. He always goes above and beyond. It is very evident that he is so passionate about our work and about helping me grow. I always feel so comfortable and encouraged in our coachings. I would absolutely recommend John as an acting coach and teacher!

Peter Furlong is a teacher who instills solid technique in a way that sticks, and in a way that makes you want to sing even more. His emphasis on supple, supported breath is the foundation upon which all other great work can be built. His knowledge of diction in classical/opera languages is extremely helpful in getting audition pieces polished. He is an encouraging, enthusiastic teacher and I would recommend him to anyone!

Mr. Furlong is an excellent coach and teacher. His focus on technique addressed confidence, range, breath, core strength, and resonance. He adjusted to my needs and was very professional. I highly recommend Mr. Furlong.

I have been playing piano since age 3 and teaching for 10 years. I believe it is very important to understand the theory that goes along with what you are playing, so I include some theory in all of my lessons. I love teaching piano and I hope to share the joy of music with others.

"Francesca is a fabulous teacher. We are an adult upper intermediate level class who have been with Francesca for several years. Her classes are small and we are all totally engaged. She takes a keen interest in each of us and our individual
needs. In addition to grammar, dictation, homework, Francesca focuses on advanced readings from Italian stories to newspaper articles, and on only speaking Italian. To improve our speaking we start with students telling about their week and/or making oral presentations to the class based on an Italian news article a student has found of interest. These presentations provide an opening for more conversation and for identification of lots of new vocabulary. Francesca is patient and makes sure we each participate. The environment she creates is one where it's OK to make mistakes and where we can have fun learning and laugh with each other. Francesca's sense of humor makes our classes even more fun."

"Aksana is an amazing teacher. She is very patient with me when I do not understand something but she will work with me until I am able to grasp the concept. I am currently taking Russian classes at a University but Aksana has been the most valuable asset when it comes to being able to learn the language properly. She is able to clearly explain the rules of the language and it is obvious she is very knowledgeable pertaining to all subjects in Russian. Without Aksana I would not feel as comfortable with my ability to learn the language. Our weekly meetings have helped me to not only speak but understand the language and culture more. I have been with her for about 4 months but look forward to continuing my lessons throughout my college career! She not only helps me during our lessons but also provides me with many other resources to continue my studies. I am very thankful for all Aksana has done and continues to do for me! By far the best Russian teacher I have had."

Joyeuse Fête des Pères: French Vocabulary for Father's Day

Whereas France and the U.S. celebrate Mother’s Day on different days in May, both countries celebrate Father’s Day on the same day every year: the third Sunday of June. Known in France as Fête des Pères, young children often show appreciation for their fathers by making crafty items, such as ties and bow ties made out of paper and cardboard picture frames made from cereal boxes. Older children, like those in the U.S., will often buy their father a gift that they know he'd love. …
