I started taking lessons from Jacqueline in person but have moved to online during the shutdown. I'm 66 and have taken some formal french courses but my conversational skills are lacking. It is often difficult finding a teacher that can be effective with someone in my age group. Jacqueline has been excellent at getting me to converse, improving my pronunciation, and working on my comprehension and grammar. We generally meet once a week but I would recommend more often.
Janis
Our family has found Jacqueline to be an awesome tutor for our high school daughter. Not only is she kind, thorough and patient, but Jacqueline always makes it a point to find out what the local high school teachers are teaching and what methods they're using. She has a very friendly and approachable manner and loves what she teaches.

Lesson and teacher were great! Although only an hour in duration, I feel I have learned a weeks worth of language.

What I Learned From Peter.

- THE METRONOME IS SO IMPORTANT
- The voice guides the guitar if you’re more of a singer
- Repetition is key
- Practice songs that aren’t in your style to ease your way into guitar
- The power resides in strumming rhythmically
- Focus is more difficult that it seems when combining singing and guitar
- Guitar is an art in itself and itself you shouldn’t master guitar, you should be it’s friend.
- Open mics and video content are the key to more success as they expose you to criticism (good or bad)
Again, the guitar is your companion.

For any aspiring musician or any musician that needs guidance and improvement on the guitar, Peter is a great teacher.
Dhiraj
Peter is very patient and great teaching my 9yr old son. We take father and son lessons together which has been amazing. Peter is naturally talented and plays many other instruments all in from his home studio. He is also extremely flexible and accommodating. Highly recommended!

Peter was great, very kind and supportive. I will definitely consider another lesson with him.

I am a native speaker who comes from the north of China. I got my Mandarin Certificate level: Putonghua Class A back in China. I was a teacher for 3 years, my students' ages range from 3 - 18. Also, I've been having lessons with adults through skype for a long time. I believe I have my own methodologies to help people who want to learn Mandarin get improved. And you will enjoy using Mandarin.

About Momo

I've been teaching for years. I am very good at adapting to students' learning styles. I know students have different personalities and different learning styles. Therefore, knowing how to make a student get a first insight of interest in learning is very important. Let's explore how the amazing Ma

I teach because it allows me to share my love of learning. I'm most satisfied when I can awaken a new interest in a “boring” subject or show a student a new way of looking at a problem. I get excited when students tell me that they see connections that weren't there before or that they finally understand something that has always baffled them. I try to bring passion to everything I teach, and I work hard to push my students to their highest potential.

About Amber

I have been teaching private lessons since 2008, but have been studying music since I was only 4 with non stop private and in school lessons. I now have my Bachelor's degree in Music education and am working toward my Masters in Music performance and Instruction. I love working with my students
