About Monica
As certified music teacher in three states and over 30 years of music experience, I am comfortable with students of all ages in developing their musicianship and love of musical expression. Playing semi-professionally since the age of 16, my performance background includes symphony orchestra, mariachi, acoustic rock, chorus (alto), and various small ensembles.
My overarching goal is to share the benefit of a lifetime of experience with my students so that they will find their own 'voice' in the wide world of music.

As a certified 1st through 8th grade mathematics educator, I have over 400 seat-hours in specialized 6th through 8th grade training including pedagogy, best-practices, identifying misconceptions, and developing formative assessments. In addition to training, I have worked as an instructional specialist through the alignment
and authoring of curriculum in private industry and public education. I am a recognized leader at both the campus and district levels.

My children were first time to learn the violin today with Ms. Monica. My kids were very excited to play the violin. Ms.Monica was really kind and brilliant. My kids could play the violin well because she taught my kids very well. I am really forward to seeing her again. Thank you! :)

About Dale
As a performer I have been playing for over fifteen years on the piano. I have received training at Vanguard University where my teacher's were graduates from Juilliard and Yale. I am now attending Arizona State University where I will be teaching music theory and receiving my Doctorate in Music Composition. I am a published choral composer, and have had my music premiered in the U.S. and Europe.

In August of 2012 I began teaching piano on a part-time basis. My teaching philosophy has always been to make sure the students understand why and not just how to perform something. I emphasize music theory along with piano lessons and expect the students to take the time to practice every week. I have taught children of all ages from 4 to 16 years old.

If you would like a female teacher please contact my wife who is also a teacher on

David is very knowledgeable in writing and specially resume writing.Me and many other students in school have been advised by him for resume writing. He knows different helpful tools to use for making a very professional resume, like valid references to select the best fit words.
During the process of editing my resume he also taught me different methods to update and edit my resume by myself .He spends as much time as he thinks is required to have an excellent result. Also it was clear that due to his valuable experience he has a very wide horizon which leads to his ability of writing various writing texts.
Beside that, he is very passionate and generous to help others and definitely very active updated in the areas of his work. Truly, His nice character makes it really pleasant for anybody to work with him .

Dave has been very helpful and patient. As a busy mom that I am I had never had the time to learn and master any skill in the kitchen. He has share with me skills that I had been able to implement in my life to facilitate and expedite my time in the kitchen. My family is enjoying the cookies, and cakes and I am able to prepare myself.

I am a former employee of David's and I had expressed interest with updating and making my resume more advanced. He gave me some of the best advice, suggestions, and even referred me to a couple of websites that proved to be very helpful. During the review process, David first pointed out all of the good aspects I had on my original resume. On the parts he thought should be tweaked or edited, he gave advice and pointers in a positive manner. He also took his time really picking apart the resume, making sure he was giving me 100% of the information that he could. With confidence, I can say I am now very proud of my resume and happy with how my strengths really stand out, thanks to the help given from David.

About M.
Over the past year, I have taken time to be a peer educator with the Education and Outreach at Arizona State University, while I have also enjoyed the demands of being a senior design student. Not only have these positions allowed me to mature greatly, they have also aided my inter-personal skills. Although I have demonstrated my capability to excel academically, I am fully aware that it is only in combination with my wit, diligence, tenacity, intuitive and problem-solving skills that my scholastic knowledge can be applied effectively.

About Fred
I've been teaching, training and coaching kids and adults for the last 15 years. My teaching experience has been at the elementary level but I have also taught special program classes at the junior high and high school level. My training experience is with kids and adults on computer related apps and hardware. My coaching experience is with kids and young adults in hockey, baseball and soccer.
My teaching style is fun and laid back with a lot of patience. This Spellivision training class you won’t want to miss! It will teach you the step-by-step process for learning the strategy of spelling. It doesn’t matter what age you are…if you’re a good speller you can become a great speller…if you’re a poor speller you can become a good speller! This class translates well both in person and online.

About Nick
Many years at work applying the principles of algebra, geometry, and trigonometry in engineering have given me a deep understanding of these concepts. I have gained the ability to communicate mathematical concepts to students, as shown by the success of my students.

Instead of just giving finished solutions to the student, my approach is to ask increasingly specific questions to help the student focus on the concept and figure out the answer. In this way, the student practices and learns successful methods for solving problems. Showing a student how to compute the height of a tree without having to directly measure it, for example, increases the students' interest and success in math.

I enjoy helping students perform challenging, detailed, and valuable work exceeding their expectations.
