About Enrique
I truly enjoy teaching and have many years of experience teaching students of all levels and ages.

I try to teach my students how important it is to listen to themselves play. When appropriate, I bring a guitar or bass (depending on the student's need) and help the student learn how drums relate to the rest of the music. I want all of my students to enjoy playing and to have music as a tool for life: one that helps them express themselves, think creatively, learn specific and technical skills, and grow musically. I believe all people can benefit from learning to play an instrument. If you or your child believe that music can provide a new way to find meaning and joy in life while learning a valuable skill, please contact me.

In addition, I have successfully taught many students who have had trouble in school due to lack of motivati
on and/or learning disabilities. Drum/percussion lessons have reawakened these discouraged students' desire to learn and I am happy to adjust my teaching style for any disabilities or difficulties a student may have. I am happy to provide references from parents whose children were struggling in other areas of life and who looked forward to a music lesson when all else seemed to be a chore.

More information: My recent recordings include top-selling Mexican pop artist Yuridia's newest album, Entre Mariposas, produced by his longtime collaborator Javier Calderon, and I have shared credits with Kenny Aronoff and James East.

Winner , San Diego Music Awards with the band Skelpin.

Percussionist of Manolito Gypsy (Gypsy Kings).

*** Lesson Details ***
Classes are 30, 45 or 60 minutes, depending on age and ability. I give lessons at your home or in my home studio.

I will start by talking to the student and/or parent about what the student would like to accomplish from the lessons and what, if any, musical background the student already has. It's OK if you don't have any experience at all.

The first class is when I focus on understanding how the student learns. Everyone learns differently and is motivated differently, so I make it a point to get to know what makes the student tick. During the first lesson, we will do some basic exercises so I can pinpoint where they are, and I'll assign skills to practice for the next class.

If the class is taught at my home studio, I record it for the student to refer to during the week. I assign exercises for every class, so please plan to practice at least 15 minutes per day while you are taking lessons.

Finally, I offer a recording opportunity for students who are writing songs and would like to learn recording skills. This is an option for advanced students, students who are looking to record a demo, or for young students who would like to preserve their new accomplishments on an audio file that can be given as a gift.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Roland TD-6 and Yamaha stage custom and acoustic drums. Full in-home studio. Machudo Cajons (Drum Box) Yamaha acoustic set, Sonar recording software,Box) Yamaha acoustic set, Sonar rec software,

*** Travel Equipment ***

About Donna
CA Standard Credential from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. I have been tutoring and teaching students for many years. My goal is to reduce anxiety in learning a subject and to give students the tools and knowledge they need to study on their own.

Most of my students are tutored in math. Usually my students suffer from math anxiety. They believe that they are bad in math. I help them to use previous knowledge to build on the current material. By the end of the sessions, they feel good about themselves and their math abilities.

I also have a Certificate in College Counseling from UCLA. I help students prepare for college/career from grade 9 through grade 12. I help with standardized tests, entrance tests, college applications and federal funding.

About Jay
Hi. My name is Jay, and I am from sunny San Diego. There are so many things I can tell you about myself but I will just say that I am a very active and goal oriented person. I love being disciplined and focused on everything I do whether it's going to the gym, running a marathon, teaching my students, etc. I believe that everything I do daily brings me closer to my ultimate goals. For this reason, I take self-development seriously. I love tutoring various students because it gives me a chance to meet many like-minded individuals who constantly want to work on themselves and get better. It is very rewarding for me to work hard and see my students grow and achieve their goals. A comfortable and friendly environment is the most important part of my teaching. If you are looking for someone who can motivate you to learn English and stay on tas

I look back upon that time as so important in the development of the person that I am today, Teacher Jay changed my whole aspect on my learning. She taught me more than I could have imagined, both about academics and about myself, I wouldn't be where I am today without her. I am so glad to have her in my life , without her I couldn't pass my Ielts Exam, and I have no doubt it was her help that made the difference. She has a strong background about Ielts, Tofel, and others, her techniques and strategy are amazing, she has an excellent resources. I never really believed that I could do well in Ielts, She opened my eyes to what I could be, what I could do in a way that I've never thought possible. Jay tough me meaningful things Such as make a smart decision, never be a fraid to make mistakes, give respect. She tought me that I could achieve more than what I or other people thought that I was capable of. I still remember one lesson where she told me about her hopes for her future, she also told me about her successes, and for some reason, it all resonated with me, and I started to relize that anything really is possible. we became friends and we still keep in touch.
To teacher Jay:
Thank you for staying behind to help me, even I know there are lots of other places you'd rather be.
Thank you for explaining things until I understand.
Thank you for being my teacher and my friend.
Thank you for your kidness and respect.
Thank you isn't really enough to express my gratitude to you.

I learned a lot from Jay’s classes, she helped me with all the linguistic difficulties that any student who doesn’t speak the English Language as thier native language may face. She understand the linguistic barriers of the the non-native English speakers and she knows how to deal with them. The best part of her way of teaching is how she gradually and smoothly moves the ESL students from a basic English level to a higher one!! Challenging the students to give thier best and more for learning purposes is really difficult specially when teaching students from all over the world with huge cultural differences but it is not difficult for a Skilled teacher as Jay!!

She is the best teacher I’ve ever met!

About Jackie
Hi! My name is Jackie, and I have nearly 20 years of experience in teaching. All of my students, meaning a perfect 100%, have improved their grades by at least one letter grade, if not more, and passed every one of their tests and exams. I help all my students reach their goals.

The feedback I often receive from my students is that I made learning an enjoyable experience—they want to work harder to advance quickly in their classes. All of my students agree that I have a lot of patience and turn even the most challenging lessons into ones of positivity and encouragement. I provide critical feedback in the most constructive of ways that help the students reach conclusions on their own. I enjoy being there to support and guide their experience.

Basically, I love teaching. I'm enthusiastic yet patient, and I absolutely adore helping kid
s and adults alike learn. It's such a sense of accomplishment when my students show off their terrific grades. I see the same look in my students’ eyes regardless of age—that pride that shines from within, that exuberant smile, like they can conquer anything. I want my students to keep that pride for a long, long time.

Right now, I’m working on self-publishing a Spanish conversation textbook for beginning students and am writing an intermediate-level Spanish conversation textbook. I've also written several academic articles published online. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy traveling, playing with my cat, and swimming.

About Whitney
Hello! My name is Whitney and I'm a fulltime English teacher from California. I have been teaching English for over 11 years and I have a Master's degree in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).

I have taught many different subjects, including speaking, pronunciation, grammar, business English, academic writing, and more. I've also taught beginners through very advanced English learners, as well as a range of ages, from kids to adults (although mostly teenagers and adults).

In addition to teaching, I'm also a professional writer, creating content for several websites and digital marketing agencies. I love writing and I love helping students improve their writing, too.

I have been fortunate enough to travel extensively and live abroad. From 2013 to 2015 I taught English at a university in Korea, which was a won
derful experience. I've traveled to almost 20 countries, and I spent most of 2016 in Southeast Asia and Europe. Having lived in other countries, I understand the struggles associated with communicating in a foreign language.

As a teacher, I am friendly, patient, and kind (and funny, I hope!), but I also care very much about my students' learning and I create lessons that are challenging but interesting, fun, and connected to the students' real lives and/or their specific goals. I also encourage students to talk as much as possible!

I look forward to meeting you!
Whitney
