I teach AP English Literature & Composition at Orinda Academy in Orinda, CA. I have a decade of teaching experience within various environments and demographics, including elite private schools and working with learning differences.

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

I've published three novels called The Sleep Trilogy and also offer my services as a creative writing instructor and editor.

I also attended the James Madison University music program. I have played piano for 20 years and guitar for 15.

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

So far everything has been great, I am now excited to practice on my own at home because I am sharing this experience with someone. It is worth it to have someone in person and I am happy to have a caring, positive and sincere person like Mike to help me!

Learning a new language is uneasy and it definitely takes time but it is also definitely possible. I have had opportunities to work with a lot of students who have different learning purposes and all of them have put a lot of work and I believe their Vietnamese families and friends do appreciate their efforts and being able to communicate in Vietnamese is helping them get closer to each other. I am here to work with you on that journey. Thank you for being interested in our language, our country, our people and our culture :)

Trang is a fantastic instructor! I would recommend her to anyone learning Vietnamese. In my short time working with her, she made sure to use the time we had available to us optimally, and was patient with me as I worked through my pronunciation. Her enthusiasm for the language and teaching is infectious :)

Having trouble figuring out the stroke order for Japanese characters? Whether you're using hiragana, katakana, or kanji, these tips from Japanese teacher Karou N. will help you learn the correct stroke order for Japanese characters...
