About Judy
I have taught may different kinds of subjects, ESL, Drug and Alcohol Education, Social services, in the past. Mostly, though, I have taught piano, my first and greatest love, starting in the 70's and off and on until I took it full time during the past 2 years. I develop special relationships with all of my students, and together with individually specific incentives, nearly all my students progress very quickly in their learning. I enjoy children of all ages as well as adults.

Judy had my son up and playing in no time. She was great about setting a pace that will keep him challenged and confident simultaneously. He loves his lessons and looks forward to learning more. My youngest, after observing a class, has decided he would like to play too!

About Seiko
I enjoy teaching Japanese. I am a native Japanese speaker, born and raised in Japan. I have a college degree in Japan with a secondary teaching credential as well as a BS degree in the US. Prior to a Japanese tutor, I worked at global companies in Japan and the US for 15+ years would be a plus for tutoring and mentoring your goals.

Everyone has a different style and level of learning languages. I teach beginners to advanced levels. My sessions would be individually tailored based on your interests, necessary improvements, and goals. You would most likely use textbooks during sessions. For school students, I am familiar with textbooks being used in the bay area. I teach my students based on their school classes and assignment preparations. For business needs, my work experience would help you not only learning the language but also str
engthening your communication skills in understanding of its cultural aspects and nuance. For job seekers and Japanese college applications, I have experience of reviewing and proofreading resume and essays as well as AP/JLPT test preparations.

I also teach group lessons (2+ people more). Please ask for the rate.

Super pro. Has all the tools for a beginning child: textbook but also story books, posters, images, videos. Sends message with the homework and links to what they did in class. Knows exactly how to start the child with the language, very clear step by step progression. My daughter looks forward to the lesson, so that says it all.

About Erika
I am from Chile and grew up in California. I received my Master's Degree in Spanish and a Bachelor's Degree in Journalism from San Jose State University. I teach Spanish and English, all levels and abilities. I love foreign languages and writing.

I have studied Spanish literature, culture, history and linguistics. I have also studied English literature, writing, advertising and editing. The best teachers and mentors I have had, have made learning fun and exciting. My goal is to always create an atmosphere where learning comes alive and becomes an enriching experience for the student.

A creative writing instructor I had years ago once said, "anyone can write." Well, I believe that with the right guidance and tools, a student can achieve the desired goals in writing, in learning a foreign language, and in any other subject or field.

Hi everybody I'm Anna, i'm Italian and I live in California from 13 years. I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology of Marketing and I have been teaching Italian and Spanish for the last 5 years.

I teach Italian language to speak with confident and clarity. I'm specialized in teaching grammar and I push my students to speak Italian as much as possible during the lessons in a friendly atmosphere. This is a great way to improve or learn Italian in a reasonable time frame.

I love to travel, to teach and to cook Italian recipes for my friends and family!

About Toby
Enjoy customized lessons (beg-adv level) from a professional teacher/performer/composer who makes learning music exciting and rewarding. I promise you will learn to play songs in just a few lessons. I also maintain standards of excellence with tailored technical exercises, theory, and sight-reading practice customized to each unique individual. Detailed curriculum provided as well as weekly practice instructions. My students have 2 recitals a year at a gorgeous recital hall with a Steinway grand.

At a young age, I was earning scholarships and entry to competitive piano master classes; I then earned a BA in classical piano performance. Due to my many years of both individual private piano and university teaching, I am able to customize lessons to best fit each unique individual and use my knowledge of theory and music history to make
each lesson exciting and enjoyable.
I use games and apps to make learning music fun for younger children mixed in with playing and singing. I specialize in theory, repertoire, and technique and will find the perfect technical exercises to help you perfect that Mozart sonata or Rachmaninoff prelude. I also love teaching beginners and seeing them learn to love music.

I am a composer and work with my band. I have a music channel online (see videos) featuring original music written by me and performed by my band. I compose original piano compositions as well as rock/classical mash-ups with my band. I teach many of my students arranging and composing and several examples of my students playing original pieces that I helped them compose/arrange can be seen in the video section of my Profile.

My daughter started taking piano lessons 1.5 years ago, but I couldn't find a teacher who was a good match for her. I found Ms. Toby about 4 months ago and my daughter is now very happy. My daughter wanted to have a teacher with energy, who will motivate and challenge her, and can find the space between too hard and too easy. Ms. Toby's practice routines, song selection, and teaching style has made a huge impact on my daughter's skill in just a few months. Now she is excited to practice the piano in the morning - sometimes she wants to keep practicing instead of going to school! Ms. Toby also lets my daughter have space to practice a song that my daughter wrote, and is helping to guide her and develop these skills as well. With Ms. Toby, my daughter performed in her first recital in October, along with Ms. Toby's other students. It was a great chance for her to challenge herself and play in a music hall in front of a large group of people. I am very pleased to have her as a piano teacher.

Toby has been a fantastic instructor for my eight-year-old. From the beginning, she has always been responsive, timely and professional in all scheduling and interactions. She has a remarkable ability to figure out and focus in on a child's talents and interests. My daughter has a particular fondness for composing, which I would have NEVER figured out on my own. But Toby has brought it out and fostered it, and at our first recital recently, my daughter performed her own composition! I have been pretty stunned to see her continual growth and I credit Toby 100 percent with developing it!

My 10yr old daughter has been doing lessons with Toby for almost 2 years. She is making great progress and she really enjoys the lessons, she is always eager to go and especially loves that she gets to pick out some songs to learn and has even worked on her own composition! Toby is really helping to foster her love of music and we are excited to continue to see her progress!
