A Few Tutor Qualifications

I am a College of Sports Medicine certified personal trainer. My focus is helping people set and reach small, progressive goals that lead them to live healthier, more fulfilling lives.
Jayden F.
I have been playing violin for almost 20 years. I am trained in Suzuki Method, Classical music, and Fiddle. I started playing violin when I was 10 years old. I excelled very quickly and was soon put into the advanced orchestra at my school. In middle school I became concert mistress of the orchestra, and in high school I played with a college orchestra. I always got into the Districts orchestra every year, and I attended summer music camps every summer of my childhood.In high school, I taught violin lessons to 15 students each week after school. I also taught a group class each weekend and I arranged music for the group to play at local nursing homes (to satisfy my community service requirement for graduation). I also prepared my students to play for recitals and auditions of their own.Though I didn't go to college for music, I did play in the regional professional symphony orchestra in the town I went to college. The strings program at my college was poor, so I auditioned for the professional orchestra and was the only student from my college to get in for 3 years. I started a string quartet group and was the student group leader for our rehearsals. I brought the group up to a level where we were asked to play for the President's Reception Speech on Parent's Weekend at the college.I still enjoy playing now, and I have been branching out to the local fiddle and Irish Seisun music scene. I started teaching again in 2008 and have been steadily growing my own studio of students.
Sharon K.
I am from China, and a native Chinese (fluent in Mandarin and Cantonese) speaker. I finished most education in China and continue my undergraduate/graduate in USA. I have taught my relatives in Mandarin and co-workers in Cantonese. I travel to China several times in a year. So besides the language, I can share the Chinese cultures.
Xiao Qing H.
I am currently certified to teach up to 9th grade math. I am an 8th grade math teacher who teaches pre-algebra, so I know what is expected from the students at this level. I am passionate about teaching students math skills that will allow them to be successful in the future.
Danielle L.
I have worked with Apple Macintosh computer systems for over 18 years. I began with the operating system 7.0, and have worked through each upgrade through OSX (10.10 so far). I learned graphic design on the Macintosh computer as an undergrad, and worked as a lab monitor providing content support for 6 years to graphic design students. When I was accepted into the graduate program for graphic design in 2000, I started teaching on Macs and continued for a total of 10 years. If you just bought your first Mac or just upgraded to a new operating system, I can help you learn how to navigate and optimize working with a Macintosh computer. Let me make you comfortable with your Mac.
Lark P.
I have a k-12 credential to teach for life from the state of California. I have taught for 37 years and I taught elementary subjects in math, reading and English most of those years.
Dan C.
I minored in music composition at JMU. I have written countless four part choral pieces, and a minuet. I studied improvisational performance jazz piano at JMU also. I am an active guitarist. I am a songwriter and a composer on the guitar. I have material available for viewing on youtube, as well.
LISA L.
I have played tennis on/off for more than 25 years. I played on Jr. High and High School tennis teams. I coached Jr. Varsity High School Tennis one season.
Cathleen A.
I use a variety of different activities to teach spelling in an enjoyable fashion. I've found that when a student finds the subject enjoyable, they learn faster!
