Many students find learning a language hard or boring. Sign language is a very expressive and beautiful language. Some teachers are boring but I get creative and make learning fun for people that want to lean ASL

About Nicole

To my future students welcome!! I can't wait to get to know you! My name is Nicole, ASL is my favorite language because it's very expressive. I am hard of hearing and have a speech impediment which makes sign language easier for me to use. Fun fact #1 I was inspired to learn ASL from my deaf cous

Just did the free intro class with you and really enjoyed it! You were patient and repeated things slowly when we needed it. My son's review: "I loved it and I learned a lot!"
My almost 10yr old son took it with me as he's been wanting to learn sign language to help him communicate. He's ADHD and gets frustrated super fast and likes to communicate non verbally when he's mad so we've been looking to learning "officially". We learned today the colors of the rainbow along with his favorite color gold, numbers and letters. We hope to take a paid class soon when we have discretionary funds :)

Well done, Nicole. You truly care about us students.
Question: I was unable to question or comment while you were teaching. Please say how! /thanks

I'm a believer that almost anyone can learn to play music well, and guitar is no exception. It's something which seems difficult at first, but has a series of specific steps (like any instrument) which take the mystery out of it, and get you playing in no time! I love seeing students improve on this instrument and seeing how much fun they have once they begin to play songs they love.

About Colin

Mrs. Esther has taught me piano over the past 9 years. Over those years, I was able to learn a lot about the innerworkings of the piano, both theory and playing. Mrs. Esther carefully taught me piano with both elegance and patience and created wonderful experiences through the community concerts that she holds. Her kindness reached me in times where I was overburdened with both the study of piano and my schoolwork. The 9 years of piano that I spent with her have been very rewarding and an experience that I will continue to cherish as I continue pianoing.

I want students to excel the fastest they can on guitar. Though I know it is important to let students learn at their own pace, I will never cease to challenge them through difficult pieces or exercises. I will develop plans and keep track of progress so that students and I can stay organized and ensure the learning is fluent. I will direct lessons based on what the student wants to learn most and what genres of music they are interested in. I also change the structure of lessons based on how the student learns. The basics I want students to learn from my lessons are basic chords, fretboard knowledge and music theory, finger-picking styles, pick and strumming techniques, left-hand techniques, and most importantly I want to teach students how to listen. I will train students ears through ear training exercises and songs. I firmly believe the better the student’s ears can get, the better the musician they can be. Besides just teaching songs, I want students to understand the theory, ...

We are so happy that we finally found a trained musician to teach my 13 yo son. Now my husband and I are taking lessons from William also. I feel that I finally have found the key to open up my music talent! Lol. William is very dedicated teacher and musician. He is skillful and he knows exactly what his students can do to make progress. Our time with him is very productive. If you want your kids to enjoy learning guitar in an encouraging environment, William is a great instructor. His time is valuable and he makes it worth your time.

My son and husband are taking lessons from William. I am so pleased that we have found a true musician., they seem to learn a lot in a few short lessons. My son starts to teach me guitar. His method makes the lesson easy for me to learn. His enthusiasm makes learning fun and 20 minutes lesson tolerable. I start to like my son more! William has changed my boy after only 2 lessons!

"Today's art lesson with Dan was planned, organized, and given in a friendly, professional and very informative manner. He has excellent communication skills and his demonstrations are informative as well a fascinating to watch. As Dan's student, I was immediately put at ease by his friendly and energetic personality; I felt as if I were talking to an old friend and I left the lesson with a renewed enthusiasm for painting. I really feel as if I doubled my understanding and enthusiasm for oil painting in my first lesson with Dan.
