Greetings!
I received my master's degree (with distinction) in Education from Hofstra University in 2005. I am a licensed elementary teacher, life/career coach and mentor. I write and critique children's books, and teach chess and piano. I am originally from NYC and now live in East Tennessee. Highlights: I?ve taught piano since 2003, and use several methods including Piano Adventures. Beginner or experienced, we'll meet at your level and move forward. I have a certificate in Chess Education...

Made terrific progress for a first lesson! Victoria had a solid grasp of chess and some resources for me to work on in between lessons. Looking forward to our next lesson.

Victoria really helped me think clearly and set up some goals that would move me toward where I want to be! She has a lot of experience and she was able to use her personal and professional experience to help me in the tutoring session!

My 8 years old daughter has been learning piano with Victoria for a few weeks. She absolutely likes it. Victoria is very nice and patient. She knows how to make the piano class interesting for kids. Highly recommend!
- Mandy Q. from Needham, MA
I enjoyed my lesson with Victoria immensely. She was able to give me, a complete novice, the confidence to continue singing. She helped me identify my range (alto) and she taught me the basics of pitch and key. She researched tools to assist me on this journey and sent them over after our lesson was complete. I am excited to continue working with her!
- Evie E. from Austin, TX
She was very nice and knew she wanted to not just do her job but also make it clear that she actually is here to help and wants to see you succeed. She is great
- Cynthia C. from Saylorsburg, PA
Victoria was able to pick up right where my son?s last piano teacher left off. She was familiar with all his music curriculum and she helped him make immediate progress. My son enjoys his online lessons with Victoria!

I usually don't do reviews but Victoria is worth the few minutes takes to write a review. Victoria and I have worked on several subjects such as music history as well as several writing assignments that had to do with science fiction. What I like about Victoria's tutoring style the most is that she adapts to the student's needs. If there is something that she cannot do she will come right out and tell you (this has only happened once in the few years I have been working with her). She is by far one of my favorite tutors and I will hands down recommend her.

She is beyond amazing! Made me feel so comfortable, was so helpful with my writing, made sure I was following along and okay with the process!
- Alexandra L. from West Roxbury, MA
Victoria was a pleasure to work with while I study for some of my education exams I have coming up, I look forward to more tutoring with her. She really has helped me study for my exam and helped break down all the questions of a pre-test I took. Victoria was willing to spend extra time with me as I studied, to make sure I am successful!
- Emily S. from Scottsdale, AZ
Victoria is knowledgeable and patient. She is a great listener and tailors her advice to your needs. Looking forward to continuing sessions with her toward professional success.
- Rochel R. from Spring Valley, NY
Victoria is great with my seven-year-old son. She is very patient and he continues to improve his game and really enjoys it. -Greg
- Gregory A. from Princeton, NJ
Victoria G. is tutoring my son who is in the 5th grade, on grammar and writing skills and he is doing so much better in these areas since he started these sessions. Victoria G. explains the information in detail and in a manner that is easy for my son to understand. He likes the interactive sessions because Victoria makes it enjoyable at the same time that they are touching basis on other fundamentals such as spelling. We surely recommend Victoria G. as a tutor and would recommend her highly.
- Christy M. from Athens, TN
Victoria has been working with my daughter for several months and she has absolutely transformed my daughter?s chess game. She is kind, patient, and understanding, and very skilled at teaching my daughter new strategies. Together they analyze her past games and discuss new approaches to improve her game. My daughter previously worked with another teacher who she found to be not engaging, and Victoria is the complete opposite. I would highly recommend her as a chess teacher - or a teacher of other academic skills. She has done wonders for my daughter!!
- Emily G. from Englewood, NJ
I have not played piano in many years and Victoria was the perfect teacher to reignite my interest in music. She was able to quickly figure out what I needed to strengthen my piano skills, and I will enjoy working on the pieces she assigned. Victoria is patient and informative with lots of entertaining and exciting online teaching materials. Cannot wait for my next online piano lesson with Victoria!
