ESL - Learn accent reduction, basic grammar, conversational skills.

About Christine
Christine has been a professional in the theatre since 1992. She received her training from Boston Conservatory and New York University and has been a company member in Tony-award winning regional theatres.

Christine specializes in vocal production, has a three-octave range and is adept at various character voices, accents and musical styles. She has sung in several musicals, wedding and church bands, and has given several solo performances since her childhood.

Christine's personal developments are around creating new musicals, composition, songwriting and exploring fusion methods in several musical styles including pop, jazz, rock, blues, neo-soul, new age, electronica, experimental and ethnic music.

Christine also plays piano, rhythm guitar and percussion, and has served as a director, soloist and accompanist for severa
l churches and community efforts.

*** Lesson Details ***
Making music and singing should be fun, and everyone deserves to have a great experience with their instrument for the rest of their lives. I take pride in guiding my students in exploring their potential in a safe, creative and non-judgmental environment. My students will learn to develop courage and confidence, grow their ears and appreciation for music in all its forms, and expand their range, power and musical skills.

Your lessons will be tailored according to your goals, dreams and personal motivation. I will offer you resources and show you how to use research as way to become independent when preparing your lessons, auditions and performances. If you are an aspiring guitarist/songwriter, I will teach you the basics of playing the guitar and offer you fun techniques to build those callouses, play rhythmically with confidence and coordinate your playing with your singing.

Whether you are completely inexperienced, naturally gifted, shy, ambitious about a professional career or just looking for an outlet that feels good, I am here to help you. You will not only learn technical skills and many tricks for beating stage fright and crafting a performance, but you will also learn to share your unique personality on stage, and learn to perform with feeling, heart and honesty.

Everyone has something beautiful and wonderful to offer the world and I look forward to meeting you and discovering your special voice and sound!

*** Studio Equipment ***
My lessons are conducted in my home in an open living room area. I have a keyboard and a guitar. You must bring your own guitar (an acoustic or acoustic electric - sorry, I do not teach lessons with electric guitars) and, if you have "accompaniment" karaoke CDs (or mp3 on your phone or laptop) and/or sheet music that you have been working with, I encourage you to bring those.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Home lessons are negotiable and I would bring a guitar and/or a percussive instrument. Your home must have a room where lessons can be conducted free from distraction (incl. pets and siblings) and have enough space for exercises and instruments. It must also be in-view of the family and have an open. Group lessons are negotiable. :-)

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in singing, songwriting, voice, speech and acting. I also teach beginning lessons in guitar and piano. Other specializations: International Phonetic Alphabet, Accent Reduction, Musical Theatre, Classical Theatre (Shakespeare, Greeks), Movement Theatre (Mime, Period Movement, Stage Combat), Singing Styles (Jazz, Pop, Rock, Classical, Gospel, Musical Theatre, Sacred Chant).

Christine's passion & dedication for the love of music is the reason she's such an awesome teacher! She not only taught my 13 year old daughter guitar but she incorporated singing along with it which my daughter loved! Christine's wonderful personality and all her talents is the reason we chose her. I highly recommend her. She's gifted and we just love her!

Whether you need copy-editing of your professional document, better pronunciation, or simply to reduce your accent, and sound more 'American', I am well able to help you!

About Stephanie
I am a career musician, and conservatory trained violin, piano and vocal instructor with over 25 years teaching experience, and a resume spanning many pages. I also am a well endorsed composer. Furthermore, I LOVE teaching! I am a competition judge, member of National Music Teachers Association, and Suzuki Association of the Americas. I have proven results, as documented on my students YouTube channel. With my instruction, you will learn quickly and most importantly, correctly, saving you time and resources as you reach your musical goals. Fact: One of the only activities that activates, stimulates, and uses the entire brain is music, so let's get started!

Some people have difficulty reaching a teachers' studio. For this reason, I have perfected my ability to teach via Skype or FaceTime. It is an advantage for my students to b
e instructed by a quality teacher. It's worth a try, isn't it?

Please note: I only accept weekly lesson students. Also, due to my performances, I'm not always able to this calendar up to date....so when you request a lesson time, allow me to communicate with you, if we need to adjust it a bit. It almost always works out if you don't mind doing that.

*** Lesson Details ***
All the students on my Student YouTube channel who have studied under three years, are practicing 2 hours a week, and you will have a similar result. That's 20 minutes a day, 6 days a week. Students under 5 practice about 10-15 minutes a day.

Please have an assignment book that lies flat, and keep it next to your music books as you practice between lessons. My instructions are very detailed to insure your best progress.

*** Studio Equipment ***
For on-line lessons, you will need a quiet place, and please test your sound and video prior to beginning of lesson. For students under 13 or so, do have a parent or caregiver taking notes while we work together.

*** Specialties ***
I have much experience with various learning styles, and in fact, am featured in a documentary made of one of my autistic students.

I began taking on line Organ lessons with Stephanie in July of 2016. She is an excellent instructor. She makes you want to learn and do your best. She is very patient and explains things very well. She asks that you practice 20 minutes a day. Since she inspires you to improve and do your best, it is easy to practice longer than requested. She has brought joy back into my life through music. I am very grateful.

I’m a graduate of the University of Southern California, with my MAT in TESOL, and a B.A. in Dramatic Arts/Entrepreneurship. I’m thankful to have been awarded USC’s Jack Nicholson Award for Outstanding Undergraduate Actor. I use my theatre arts background to teach reading strategies, pronunciation, vocabulary, effective academic writing, and speaking.

For pronunciation, I work to make your listeners understand you better, placing an emphasis on the proper intonation and stress patterns.

He just concluded his second term as an English Language Fellow with the U.S. Department of State (2014-2016). Through projects set up by the U.S. Embassy, he worked directly with local teachers, students, and education professionals to enact meaningful and sustainable changes in the way English is taught. This year, Shaheed taught paragraph structure at Santa Monica College and Adult ESL at Irvine Valley College.

Shaheed had the opportunity to teach Business English at University Malaysia Kelanta
n (UMK), the only entrepreneurship university in Malaysia. He also worked on curriculum development, facilitated over 100 workshops throughout six countries in Southeast Asia, train teachers, coached Ministry of Education officials, and supported the U.S. Embassy’s English ACCESS Microscholarship program.

I highly recommend Shaheed. I'm an ESL Toastmaster, need to improve my impromptu speaking skills. He customizes my lessons for my needs and recognizes what I need to work on. He is very professional, but his easy going and down to earth personality makes each session truly enjoyable. My fellow Toastmasters say I became quicker on my feet; I see results!

My niece, from oversea, has stayed with us in the USA for a few months. She has been taking lessons with Shaheed almost everyday for the past five weeks. She enjoys every lesson and has learned a lot since she started. She has mentioned that she wanted to continue the lessons if possible when she was back in her country. Shaheed recognizes her strength and weakness in her ability and customizes her lessons accordingly. He is very professional but yet funny and caring. Has a lot of tricks up his sleeve to keep her enagage. A top notch teacher. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for an ESL teacher.

Thank you so much Shaheed for wonderful lessons you have crafted for her.

I'm a patient and experienced teacher. We can practice English conversation in a relaxed and natural way. I can teach you specific vocabulary for your travel, business, or educational needs.

About Marion
Hi, I'm Marion. I bring a lifetime of experience helping people of all ages improve their writing, and English skills. My experience with second language learners is extensive. Whatever your skill set, age, abilities, or background, I can help make you a better writer.

I've worked with middle, high school and college students on developing the reading, writing and research skills needed for success in many academic areas. I've worked with second language learners on speaking, reading, and writing.

Preparing for essay tests is one of my areas of expertise, but my teaching philosophy is less about preparing for a particular test than it is about developing strategies that work for a broad number of tests and in real life situations.

I love working with adults and younger people on developing storytelling techniques, and public spe
aking skills for presentations and interviews, as well as for personal events. These are great confidence builders with real world results!

Whatever type of writing you need to work on, it would be my honor and privilege to work with you.

I love tutoring ESL students because I am experienced to simplify complex subjects and explain them to my peers and students in the most comprehensible way, so it could be never forgotten. Another reason to become an ESL tutor is gaining more experience and connecting with different students from different cultures and backgrounds. In addition, I possess my own unique methods of approaching a subject and understanding the details of the matter in the most efficient manner. In my opinion, sharing our information and learning new things from each other is the most effective way of progressing in our academic and career life. As English is my language as well, so I know how to simply help the students in essay writings and different assignments.

About Parinaz
