About Mao
www.maoygray.com

Certified Practitioner of The Lessac Voice and Movement Institute and a candidate for certification.

I own the business license as voice/acting/accent modification coach from City of Los Angeles.

I have experience teaching clients from many cultural backgrounds, including ESL who struggle to melt into the classes and to think in English. I am effective at diagnosing what they need to work on and helping them to achieve their goals. I will bring my energy to the session and encourage clients to share their questions, to express themselves, to respect each other, to work harder and to love language deeply. 
My lessons are designed with diverse groups of clients in mind because Los Angeles is a huge cultural melting pot. I will share with international clients how to feel the American energy as themselves witho
ut mimicking people through their daily lives. American clients will reconnect with their roots through the exploration.

I highly recommend, the best teacher I’ve had. Responsible! Caring!

I took TOEFL perpetration classes with Henry. He is very knowledgeable and a great teacher. Because of his experience in journalism he has amazing knowledge in writing, reading, speaking, He worked on my general English skills first because I thought I had enough proficiency in English while I didn't, and after some classes he started TOEFL, he definitely knows what area of English I was weak in so, step by step, he lead me in the right direction. He's very responsible and carrying. I got a higher score than I was expecting.

Gerardo was fantastic. The soccer lesson was for my 12 year old great nephew. My own nephew, the 12 year old's father, was also there. From Gerardo's opening "hello" we knew that we were with an incredible teacher. First, Gerardo is a true master of soccer. He plays for SM College. His ability is impressive. Second, he knows how to teach. Many great players are not great teachers. Gerardo is. He knows how to motivate and bring out the best in the student. He is friendly, bright, respectful, and a true joy to work with. My nephew is a soccer manager and coach himself, and he was thoroughly impressed with Gerardo. I recommend Gerardo enthusiastically and without hesitation. If you need a soccer lesson, you will not find anyone better.

Gabriel is an incredible accent teacher. He has his own technique and all I can say is that it REALLY works. I tried other accent coachs before him and always felt some part of the work wasn't fully done. I felt like they were only showing me what I should be doing. That is not the case with Gabriel. He is detail oriented he has a superman ear, he is very good at explaining what is the mistake you are making and how you can correct it, giving precise exercises and techniques to fix it. I have people asking me if I moved to the States when I was 5 when in reality I moved here less than a year ago :) Can't beat that! A part from his professionalism, he is kind, funny, flexible. I totally recommend him!

About ali
My name is Ali You, I am a second-year graduate student, and my major is violin performance. In May 2017, I will graduate from Boston University and get my master of music degree.

I’ve begun to study in BU with Professor Bayla Keyes since 2015, in these two years, I’ve learned a lot from her, not only my violin skill, but also a lot of teaching methods.

I got my bachelor degree in Renmin University of China, which is one of the best university in China. I had 24 students before I came to States, several of them won the first prize in different violin competition.

I’m very patient, I have a beautiful smile, of course, and the most important thing is I can teach well. Most of my student can learn very fast and be very happy at the same time. I hope my student to love music instead of just playing the music

About Tracy
I'm Deaf and have been fluent in ASL for over 35 years. I also can speak and lipread well so there's no language barrier. I teach in a fun, casual style and am flexible in the lesson direction you would like to go.

I'm also legally blind so the only thing I request for our sessions is that you sit in a well-lit area without a window or light directly behind you. The brighter - the better. If I can't see you, I can't tell if you're signing well.

I manage and blog at my own website. I can't wait to meet and chat with you!
