I also help students with SAT Prep, college guidance, and college essays.

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.

As someone who needed to learn other languages, I can assist anyone whose native language is not English to become more proficient, improve their grammar, and gain better conversational skills.
One of my specialties is interview prep. I worked in IT, in marketing, and have an MBA, interviewed candidates and been interviewed myself - so I can share insights with my students.

Diane has a great French accent and shares her teaching skills effectively. I would highly recommend her for all levels. We have read books and seen movies in French. Her world view and experience adds a lot. Vraiment!

Diane is a great German teacher! She always provides additional resources to delve into the subtleties of a translation or specific grammatical constructions and uses a variety of different books/activities so that the exercises never get boring.
Don H.
Once again, Diane has proven an exceptionally effective French instructor. She is conversant in American idioms and offers the French equivalents with ease. I am in awe of her ability to motivate and instruct.

Dear English Students,

A native French speaker, I have been tutoring students of all levels since 2008. I was the main French and German Instructor, as well as a private English tutor, at the San Jose Learning Center in the Silicon Valley before moving to New York.

The core of my lessons are drawn from a language book, which allows the student to work at his or her own pace during the week.

The lessons themselves are then spent reviewing previous work, as well as introducing new material in a variety of ways, all the while engaging in various forms of dialogues depending on your level.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

I hope to hear from you, meet you, and work with you!

Sincerely,
Gabrielle

Great first lesson! Teresa is very pleasant to work with and extremely knowledgeable. Looking forward to many more lessons to come!

Teresa was awesome! She worked with me and my limited flexibility and really set me up for success with exercises to integrate into my routine. She was also very cognizant of a prior injury and presented long term alternate solutions to tissue regrowth. I really look forward to working with her again!
Brittany
She was really great, we have only had one lesson so far but she made me feel very comfortable and I feel like she will be perfect for me helping me get over my stage fright. She came up with quite a few ideas up front and can tell she is taking it seriously, which makes me even more confident in her because it is such a serious issue for me. I am looking forward to working with her.

I was failing genetics and with online tutoring i went from a 69% to A. He really has your best interests in mind, when i asked him last minute to help and he was too packed helping other students he referred me to another well rounded tutor. dr. Z is worth the wait since he has a lot of patience for disabled students, he truly enables them. Thank you for helping me accomplish such a tough subject.
Mary I.
I just started nursing school at UCLA and had failed my first midterm. Dr. Z was really supportive and taught me how to study. He really knew how to teach the material. After tutoring with him on a daily basis, my grade went up to an A on the final, and I received an A- in the class ! Whoo!!!. This tutor is excellent in every way and I highly recommend him!

She also has a lot of patience and knows how to explain the lessons properly. Her teaching techniques have been very useful to improve my English pronunciation and I enjoy doing homework (cause it's fun and doesn't seem like homework at all). I highly highly recommend her!

"The most important thing about teaching is reaching your students. You could have a world of knowledge locked away, but until you can learn to meet a student's needs and learning styles it will be just that, locked away. Marta has this quality of compassion and intuition about her students that separates her from your average teacher. She saw clearly what my needs and goals were and allowed me to find the solutions from inside myself. Many will attest to this fact. "She was my favorite teacher" is a very common remark from her past students even outside this platform. I observed my own enjoyment working with her as well as noticing her ability to integrate her teaching style with all kinds of students. For the fortunate to the most troubled Marta has a teaching quality that is frankly not found enough in the academic world. She is a teacher of the people and you would be lucky to learn from her."
