Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

I received a TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) in 1986 through UC Berkeley Extension and taught at Galileo High School in San Francisco. I also tutored intermediate students from 1986-1988 and taught in Mexico for several months in 2005. In 2011, I came to the International Refugee Committee and for 3 years taught ESL to level 1 students, many from African, Middle Eastern, and other countries who spoke no English at all when they enrolled. I teach students of any age.

About Judy

I have taught many different kinds of subjects, eg., piano, ESL, Drug and Alcohol Education, and foster care parenting, in the past. Mostly, though, I have taught piano and ESL, my first and greatest loves, starting in the 70's and 80's. I develop special relationships with all of my students,

Great first lesson, really excited to continue learning from Judy!

Judy had my son up and playing in no time. She was great about setting a pace that will keep him challenged and confident simultaneously. He loves his lessons and looks forward to learning more. My youngest, after observing a class, has decided he would like to play too!

Tamari is a remarkably accommodating teacher. Uses instructional strategies that are effective and appropriate. Also, presents new material clearly and logically. Demonstrates enthusiasm and interest in lesson presentation. My daughter loves learning classical piano with Tamari.
Rhea Farbman
I have known Tamari professionally for fifteen years.
She is an excellent music teacher for piano and voice. Her expertise is noticeable as she patiently meets her student at his/her level and guides that student to the next step.
The process is perfect for any student, even if developmentally challenged and for any age. I highly recommend Tamari.

I've been consistent weekly taking yoga lessons from Tamari at the Y in Canaan CT. I try not to miss it. She's a compassionate and caring yoga teacher and will trailer her classes to fit your needs. Her classes are good for newbies and seniors and those who want a simple class. No athletics. Hatha Yoga are basic yoga stretches that will make you feel good after participating . My aches and pains are gone after each session. To be continued....

Yuriko is very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. I've been studying Japanese on my own for about a month and decided I wanted an instructor to help me. I was very nervous to speak Japanese in front of her as my studies have left me reading about grammar and vocabulary, not necessarily saying much of it out loud, but she quickly calmed me with her reassuring nature. She provided me with a lot of insight on the use cases for many words/phrases, as well as Japanese culture. I left my first lesson feeling confident and ready for more!

I'd highly recommend Yuriko to anyone wanting a Japanese language instructor! She's the best!
Sandi T.
My daughter is absolutely LOVING her lessons with Yuriko. We travel often and it is wonderful that my daughter is able to continue her lessons, where ever we are.

"Just finished with my first lesson with Tony. Great guy; very personable! He explained some things I didn't know and encouraged me to keep at it. He also gave me some resources and helped me fine tune some of my signs. Wish we could talk more often. If you take a class with him, you won't be disappointed!!! Thanks Tony!"

"I started to learn Italian with Chris in preparation for a vacation I was taking this year. I enjoyed my lessons so much that I have continued them after my trip. Chris is a great teacher and he makes learning the language so much fun. He uses a diverse set of teaching materials including stories and songs. His travels to Italy also help to provide great background on the language classes. He's so positive and patient and extremely flexible with lesson scheduling which is helpful since I work full time. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who is interested in learning Italian. The truest recommenation is that I was able to converse effectively while in Italy, thanks to Chris! Grazie mille."
