I've been playing with classical ensembles and rock bands since 2001. Even though I started on classical trombone and rock guitar, I have come to expand my repertoire to a variety of instruments and genres. During my time in college I performed with the University choir, orchestra, and band. I also have organized, wrote/arranged for, and performed with a variety of bands in my home state of New Mexico, as well as Japan, and the San Francisco Bay Are
Since 2006 I have been an active teacher. This profession has taken me everywhere from working with classical guitar classes in New Mexico high schools to Elementary students in Japan to a variety of private students of various musical instruments and genres everywhere I've been. Since relocating to the Bay Area in 2010, I've had the pleasure of working with lots of great students from kids to adults with a wide range of ambitions. Since 2012 I've been running my own full time studio along.
Philosophy of Learning
Lessons are generally designed to work towards giving students the tools to accomplish their goals and become increasingly independent over time. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. What kind of music do you want to make? I'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.
I also love to help students put together a song, record, and produce it for them so that they can have a recording to share with their friends and family.
I also hold events for my students. (Check out our pictures and videos below!)
Younger students have the "Young Musicians Showcase" every few months where individual students and band classes have a chance to perform and celebrate their accomplishments with friends and family.
Adult students occasionally have events where they get a chance to get together and play music as well.
Aside from in-studio lessons, students also have the option to sign up for online lessons via Skype.
(*Online lessons offered during different times than in-studio lessons.)
*Unfortunately due to scheduling issues, I'm not currently accepting students for bi-weekly lessons. I can do regular weekly lessons, or occasional drop-in lessons, but bi-weekly appointments make it really hard for me to give the best scheduled times to my existing weekly students. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

My name is Jessica. I have been teaching Chinese since I moved to Paris in 2007. Now I am living in San Francisco and I still have a huge passion to teach Chinese and spread the Chinese Culture.
I helped French kids for their Chinese homework, people who want to work in China and Chinese major students to pass their school exams, etc. I also teach small group (2-4 people).
I have an International Marketing and Business master degree and if you are interested in Business Chinese, life in China and France then you find the right person. If you are French speaker, I can teach you in French.
I also help people to practice their French speaking.
Please feel free to contact me if you want more information.

I majored in art and design in college and earned the master's degree in design. I have been cultivating in drawing and painting since I was a teenager. I hope I can share my knowledge with others. I try to broaden students' point of view beyond the textbook through some extra materials.
Now I work part time as a Chinese after school teacher. I am also the private Mandarin teacher of three families, a
As a native Chinese speaker, my pronunciation is standard. I accumulate extensive knowledge and firm foundation in classical Chinese literature. I can help with the practicing and correcting pronunciation. Besides, I also teach Chinese culture and background, or anything related to Chinese.
At the same time, I also have the skill cooking hundreds of delicious Chinese dishes. If you love Asian food, it is a good idea to learn a couple of classical Asian dishes to enjoy your family's stomach or show off at your feast table.
If you try to find a tutor for your kids or yourself to learn no matter Chinese speaking or Chinese cooking, you will find I am the right person you are looking for.

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.

He is great on accent reduction too. While i wrote this review my concerns is he will see and will find anything to correct... But he also has taught me to be courage enough too... Thank you Henry for everything you have done. I am a freelance foreign journalist in LA. He did his best for me both as a teacher and colleague. And such a good heart... Even if you don't share same opinions on any affair he respect you and try to give his best and more than what you have paid. He is patient too.

I believe that each student is different, so I always do my best to adapt my lessons to your needs and your learning style. However, I don’t think it’s possible to teach “only grammar” or “only conversation”. I offer my students a lot of conversation practice, but also grammar, vocabulary, listening and reading exercises. I also enjoy sharing a whole lot of Russian traditions and specialties of th

Are you planning a trip to Germany? One of the keys to staying safe and not getting sucked into tourist traps is to blend in with the culture. In other words, when in Germany, do as the Germans do. Most American tourists dont realize that there are certain things they wear that make them stick out like a sore thumb. A large backpack or fanny pack, for example, screams tourist. But its not just what American tourists wear, its also what they say and do. Certain gestures or greetings, … Read More
