"My name is Eleanor, and I am an available English and music teacher living in New York. I was born in the US and am a native English speaker. I have some experience teaching children from ages 9-13 as well as disabled adults of various ages, but I’ve particularly enjoyed working with children. I have experience teaching mathematics, English, and music. I am a professional jazz vocalist and have worked in the tristate area for the past year with my trio. I am currently studying to get a bachelor’s degree in jazz vocal performance at the New School of Jazz and Contemporary Music. I began learning Mandarin in kindergarten, and my interest in Chinese language and culture has been prevalent since. I am a very friendly and outgoing person, and am willing to work with people of any age and ability level.

I am a native English speaker, and have excellent grammar and writing skills. I worked for Kweller Prep, a test prep school in New York City, tutoring in English, essay writing, and mathematics. I have an SAT score of 1530 (780 in Evidence-Based Reading and 750 in Mathematics). I also speak some Mandarin, so if you're an ESL student who speaks Chinese, I could be a perfect fit for you. I am a very energetic and patient person who loves to talk, read, and write. I'd love to help students of any age and fluency level to build their English skills in whatever way they need!

I am a professional vocalist with lifelong experience in music. I played violin from ages 4-15 and have been singing in choirs my whole life. I got a score of 5 on the Music Theory AP exam, and have a 60% scholarship at The New School of Jazz and Contemporary Music to study jazz vocal performance. I was an intern teaching 7th grade music in my senior year of music, and volunteered at Daniel's Music Foundation, a nonprofit organization offering subsidized music classes to people with disabilities, that same year. I specialize in jazz and classic swing. Music is my lifelong passion and I'd really like to help teach someone who shares that passion." less...
