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.

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.

Learn from a native Spanish speaker. I started working as a part-time evening job. Currently, I am looking to become a full-time tutor because I noticed students beneficial more in a one on one teaching style. I consider myself to be very flexible with my students' schedule and try my best to address their needs in my teaching style. I follow a Spanish immersion curriculum for kids and encourage a native-like use of the language to my student who already have advance knowledge of the subject.

About susan

I am specialized in Spanish. I worked in a dual immersion classroom in after school programs and taught AP Spanish in Pittsburg High. So, I am very comfortable in any kind of level of Spanish I employ interactive activities for my young students to learn Spanish while having fun. I am familiar wit

I lived in Manaus, Brazil for 2 years as a volunteer proselytizing missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As a result of talking to people all day, every day, I attained full fluency and command of the Portuguese language. I further polished my abilities in the language by taking an advanced Portuguese grammar class and Brazilian history class (both taught exclusively in Portuguese) during my Bachelor's degree at Brigham Young University. I know the language intimately, and can provide the highest quality of instruction to students of the language.

In the few months that I've had flute lessons with Drew, I've grown so much. As a beginner in flute, I was completely scared and overwhelmed with taking band for the first time. Knowing I needed lessons, I'm so glad that I was paired with Drew. On my first lesson, Drew asked me what my goals were and I told him that it was to just simply read the notes on the page. That's all I expected to learn from him, but he taught me so much more! Drew taught me about musical expression, tone and all the little details behind flute playing. His teachings challenged and motivated me. My peers and band teacher have noticed my improvement and progress. Thanks to Drew, I can now play with confidence and poise. -Emma

Hi!

My name is Mary and I’m excited to share with you my teaching experience for over 20 years. I have been teaching English as a second language and Spanish language and culture to adults and at the university level for more than 15 years. I have solid credentials: a Master in North American Studies, a Master in Education and a Doctorate in Spanish and Foreign Language Teaching.

I have been mastering both languages since childhood and I continue teaching all year round at college and in the private sector. I customize each lesson to the student needs and take my job very professionally and full of enthusiasm.

I am very passionate when teaching, and my students tell me that reflects on their progress. I have prepared students to learn English and get a better job or just to enjoy travelling.

Focusing on communication is key and a core component of my teaching style. You will start speaking since the first class. I also have extensive experience teaching writing, reading, ...

Doctor Mary is a great instructor. Thanks to her I passed Spanish III at college last semester with an A. I had a C and in just 2 months she made me boost my grade and what is even better.....my understanding on how the language works. I am now doing an online course with her to improve my speaking skills so that I can socialize and travel.
Thank you so much Mary!!! You made one of my dreams come true!
Helen C.
I am impressed with the results I got with Doctor Maria. She is amazing. I took Spanish at high school and college but never learned to speak. I actually was not even able to conjugate verbs correctly.
I contacted doctor Maria and she gave me a brief free lesson to meet and show me how I could improve with her method. She is very patient, personable, knowledgeable and fun. She has made me feel confident in Spanish. I enjoy learning and speaking with her in Spanish every week. I look forward to our next lesson in April.
Thank you so much for making my dream come true, Doctor Maria.
Jaime
Mary is a stellar tutor for TOEFL. I was in need of a plan for tutoring, with a professional of the language and Mary, who holds a doctoral Degree was the perfect option! She has the hands on experience and highest qualifications to teach it. I love the 'interview' or first free class she had with me to help me identify a path and a weekly plan!

I can say to my students that we will have fun, interesting classes that cover culture, formality, pronunciation, and more. I was inspired to become a Korean teacher by my love of Hanguel (Korean language), and I want to help people who want to learn about it.

I will be your encouraging teacher. I am looking forward to meeting you & helping you to develop your Korean skills.

Ms Jiny was able to tailor the lesson to meet my requirements for learning this particular language. For someone who has been out of school for the past few "decades" I'm surprised how I was able to pick up on it without spending the entire lesson asking dumb questions. She is a very good instructor that is patient, motivated, and understanding and I hope not to disappoint her.

Whether you are looking for instruction in reading, writing, analysis, comprehension, or something else, I have experience teaching all levels of students in the aforementioned areas. Being able to self-express verbally and through the written word are skills that must be developed for academic success at the high school and collegiate level. It is never too early or too late to begin developing a comprehensive understanding of the English language.
