About Gilbert
I have worked for many Colleges and Kids Sports organizations. I have been background checked many times. I also teach kids of many ages at The Arbor Learning Center home schooling group.

Mr. M. is a CG artist. Like many, his love for art started in grade school and evolved in high school. While running his own T-Shirt Design company, "Extreme Limitations", he was able to quickly see the power of design, layout, color, and typography.

With over twenty years of experience in Graphic Design, Illustration, Prototype Design, Game Art, and Motion Graphics, Mr. M. now spends his time teaching students in many different graphic disciplines. He has been at Norco College since 2006 teaching 3D Modeling, Animation, Beginning and Advanced Photoshop, Illustrator, Digital Sculpting and Character Design. He has also taught 3D Modeling, Anim
ation, Drawing, Motion Graphics, and Video Editing at Coastline Community College, and Cypress College, Santa Ana and is now teaching 3D Modeling at Mt. SAC.

In his free time, Mr. M. freelances for companies helping production schedules that are running behind. In 2009, Gilbert won an Emmy.

This experience really helped me grasp important concepts that I otherwise would have never known. I feel like I learned A LOT in only 3 classes and I can't wait to learn more. Gil was very productive; he based the lessons on what I use Photoshop for and actually allowed us to work on projects that I had to do for work, instead of just teaching what he wanted to teach. He was SUPER patient and never made me feel bad for stopping to take notes. I would definitely recommend him to anyone trying to learn a computer program he is knowledgeable in. This is totally irrelevant, but he has cool hair too! Thanks Gilbert!

I have been taking Liam's Tai Chi/ Qi Gong class for nearly two years now. He is a dynamic teacher that is sensitive to different types of learning paces and styles (both eastern and western) and employs both in his classes. His explanations are simple and he always relates the movement back to its origin as a martial arts defense/offensive move which helps one establish the intention behind the movement. I have learned yang short form and chen style short form from him. I would highly recommend that you take his class if you are interested in beginning or continuing a tai chi practice. Through my practice I have found a healthy way to manage stress and anxiety.

David was AMAZING! And our team thoroughly enjoyed the session. I understand that I was charged incorrectly so he was not paid right for this service. I hope that you do take care of him since I did ask to verify if the price was correct when I initially requested the service.
Thanks!

About Dan
I'm a lead and rhythm guitarist. I went to Musicians Institute and graduated the Professional Guitar Program. I am currently a teacher at a school where I teach a classroom of 60 t0 70 students and private lessons as well. I have also managed and ran a recording studio for over 10 years. I'm Proficient at Logic Pro and Garage Band. If recording and producing your own music is something you would like to learn as well I can definitely help you achieve that goal.

I developed a curriculum and method of teaching guitar that simplifies theory and the learning process. I go out of my way to explain things that makes playing enjoyable and easy to understand. My goal is to get my students playing music and to enjoy the process. I teach students of all ages and levels.

My styles range from Blues,Rock, the styles of Jimi Hendrix, Funk, Soul, P
op and Jazz.

Dan has been my Guitar instructor for over a year. He has the ability to know my way of learning and because of that I'm able to learn the songs faster, of course we all know you have to practice. I would highly recommend Dan for his patience, knowledge, skills, experience and his love of teaching.

Dan is an amazing teacher. When I came to him first, I barely knew how to hold a guitar. He took me under his wings, and almost ten months later, he transformed my playing where I now actually sound like I'm playing a real song.

He is extremely talented, very gifted, and really really good at teaching. He excels in breaking down a concept, or helping me figure out the right way to play a chord, or a lick. He has also proved that he has an amazing ear, helping me learn a song (that he's never heard before), by breaking it down, and de-constructing it.

I am very happy with him being my teacher, and I look forward to learning a lot from him.

Mr. Salas is one of the best guitar teachers I ever had. He's very patient and very encouraging. He's makes me strive to be a better player. He takes the time to invest in his students and is always available for questions when you need him. I have learned so much from him being his student for a year now. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking to improve in guitar.

About Cliff
At my Riverside gym - Self Defense Fit Lab - we teach self defense by ways of Krav Maga, Mastro Defense System and Filipino Martial Arts. Our classes are divided up by 5-6 yrs, 7-9 yrs, 10-14 yrs, and Adult beginners or advanced. My hope for you is to set goals both short and long term. This will allow us to work together and have fun while succeeding. Learning Krav Maga doesn't have to be a scary process. It is super easy to learn and you will get an amazing workout. I look forward to working with you.

I started learning Krav Maga with Cliff just 7 weeks ago and I love it. Just in this short amount of time I feel a little safer and feel I at least know a few things to keep me that way. I can't wait to keep learning more and more each week.
