About Clifford
'Dr. Cliff,' a part-time college/university professor, teacher and tutor with 5 master's and 3 doctoral degrees in a variety of topics: Mathematics, Computer Information Systems, Computer Science, Management Information Systems, MBA, Leadership, Education and Administration. He has always used proven educational techniques to instruct undergraduate students, graduate students and school children/teenagers (K-12). In addition, Dr. Cliff is a Certified Tutor by American Tutoring Association and National Tutoring Association (Math); he holds California Teaching Credentials in Math (CSET I,II,III), Business (I,II,III), and Educational Technology/Computers (I,II); he is a Sylvan Certified Teacher in Math and Arts/Language K-12.

Dr. Cliff believes that, although many professors and teachers do an admirable job in the classroom, many students
and children do not learn well in traditional institutions. Many students and children don't respond to the assembly line nature of most institutions. He believes that a student's or child's strengths and natural abilities need to be the foundation of learning. Dr. Cliff often warns against a "cookie cutter" approach to educating students, teenagers and children. You or your child is seen as an individual, and natural strengths are identified and built upon. Therefore, individual one-on-one tutoring or help is the key approach to each student who has any challenges difficulties in a given subject.

In today’s environment and economic challenges, with shorter budgets for the education, larger classes sizes and pressure of performing well in all kind of standard tests, I often see many students lacking true knowledge and skills in a given subject, since they cannot get individualized attention during the class session. That’s where a tutor comes into the picture, not only uncover major “holes” in students’ knowledge set but also teach students how to study, how to learn and through proper guidance “fill” those knowledge and skills holes.

About Garrett
My name is Garrett. I am originally from Southern California where I grew up constantly around music. My mother being a pianist, I started at a young age. After a few years and a few different instruments, I fell in love with the Oboe. I was fortunate to have great teachers through middle school and high school and I ended up making my way to college on a Music Scholarship. Studying mainly classical music, I did have my chances to explore various genres and perform all over California as well as various cities in the US. I am very passionate and love to teach. I look forward to the possibility of teaching/coaching young or old musicians here in California.

I have been playing guitar for 16 years, and have been writing my own music for 10. I have been involved in rock, classical, blues, jazz, dance, and electronic music.

Aaron was quite a good coach. I accomplished all my objectives. However, i live in Ventura and the lessons are in Los Angeles so the distance is too far for me. Therefore, i won't be signing up with "take lessons" for additional lessons.

Aaron is punctual, courteous, and incredibly knowledgeable. He directed lessons to address what I wanted to learn, but always made sure to bring practice materials and blank sheet music for the days I wanted to leave the curriculum in his hands.

His extensive education is crucial to his understanding of theory and composition, and with all his insight he was able to help me parse out my own pieces so that I could flesh out my own arrangements.

I not only received the guitar training I signed up for, but also invaluable teachings regarding gear, composition, theory, and performance. There was never a question I had that Aaron couldn't help me with.

He's an excellent teacher and an excellent person.

About Tony
Hi, I'm Tony. I LOVE bowling. Every aspect of it. Competition, fun, meeting people, and making people better. You know the old saying, "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach" Well, it kind of applies to me. I'm a natural right hander that has to bowl left handed due to injury.

Bowling is a great sport that is even more fun once you can keep the ball out of the gutter, and even more fun as you get better. I'd love to share the journey with you. I typically coach out of La Habra, but can travel within a reasonable distance. Even not so reasonable (for a small fee). I do coach kids (USBC background check complete. Here is my bowling bio from the CSULB website:

Tony, was a touring member of the PBA for 5 years, competing in tournaments ranging from Regional tournaments in the West, to majors such as the US Open and the M
asters. Among his bowling achievements are 8-300 games and 4-800 series, with his high being 820. Also, a Sanctioned high average of 228. While he did not win a pro tournament, he consistently cashed there, as well as tournaments such as the High Rollers, Mini Eliminator, USBC Nationals, California State Championships, and local association tournaments. Highlights include a 9th place finish in the California State Masters in 2005, 2nd place California State Doubles (1989) and winning titles in the Citrus Belt (one of the largest association tournaments in California) in 1990 (team event), and 2005 (team, doubles, all events). Tony has won too many smaller tournaments to properly list here. Although a wrist injury ended his pro career, he continues to be active in local tournament clubs and charity tournaments.
Tony has been a coach since 1994 working with both youth and adults. He gained his US Junior Olympic coaching certifications in 1996, before obtaining his USBC Bronze certification in 1998 He will earn his USBC Silver certification in June of 2015. Tony is also a member of the USBC Registered Volunteer Program, consisting of passing an extensive background check in order to work with youth. He is also a former director of the Orange County Bowling Association.

Hello! My name is Madison, but I go my Madi. I love the piano and the beauty and creativity it allows as you learn more about it. It may seem intimidating at first, but it will soon become your best friend. As you come to learn your favorite songs on the instrument, a fire you didn't know you have, will ignite inside you, and I would love to be that person to watch it grow.

I am so impressed with Madi as a piano instructor for a simple reason-- she has both a real love and natural talent for music AND she knows her technical stuff-- music theory and how to teach different ages. Too many teachers are either/or that way so I really connected with how she balances both the artistic and music loving aspects with solid technique on the piano. I definitely would recommend her as a piano instructor.

I have been studying and practicingTai Chi Chuan for over 15 years and added it to my teaching curriculum a couple of years ago. I chose to go more with Tai Chi's approach to self-defense, infusing elements of Kenpo into it.

About Marilyn
I am a current freshman at Cal State University of Long Beach and I will be majoring in Business! From a young age I spent most of my time with my grandma. She taught me many things and to this day I have her and my mother to thank for who I am today. I am a person with many talents. I dance, I am a perfectionist, I love to decorate, I love designing rooms and homes, as well as fitness!

💃 I have been dancing my whole life ever since I was a little girl. At the age of 14, I enrolled in my high school's dance department. WIlson Classical High School has won 1st place in many Las Vegas Dance Competitions every year and have also performed at Disneyland yearly. I enrolled in dance all 4 years of high school and was also apart of my high school's spirit drill team, The Bruinettes. I have grown as a dancer, performer and entertainer and my p
assion for dance grows every day!

I teach beginning dance and intermediate dance as well as hip-hop, jazz, contemporary and lyrical. I also teach Intro. to Ballet. My goal after every class when I teach dance is for every one of my students to leave feeling confident in them self as a dancer, happy, open minded, more knowledgeable in the art of dance as well as the specific techniques that are important to dance that is taught in Intro to Ballet.

The thing i love about dance is that it is not only fun but it is also healthy and it helps build confidence and relieves stress! Allow me to help you achieve your goal whether it's to loose weight, get toned, or to just do all in 1!

🌹 As for floral arrangements and catering, I have a passion for that too. I absolutely love decorating and arranging flowers. Whether is for weddings, birthdays, parties or even its just for the home that you live in! I am a perfectionist however I am very open-minded about my clients taste and I will do my absolute best to make sure their vision come to life! Check out my Instagram pages:
💐 @pink.diamond.dolls
💎 @luxury.diamond.dolls
💍 @diamond.Bridal.dolls
If you don't have an Instagram you can also google my usernames and search Instagram!

🏡 When it comes to interior design as you might have guessed, I also love interior design. Growing up I never had my own room, so, as a young girl I loved to draw. I drew my own dream rooms on paper and now I even help my friends rearrange their rooms as well as decorate and even tidy up a bit. I can make a small bathroom look like an absolute luxury bathroom with the simplest things like adding a candle or even just painting the walls a different color. Small details like that can really make a difference! As I mentioned before, I am a perfectionist and if anything, everything will look it's best. From a modern clean slate look, to a 5 star hotel, to a bachelor pad in LA, I can design almost any room to the best of my abilities based off of what my client wants!

💄 And for makeup, yes, haha, I love makeup too. What can I say? Master of almost anything? Anyways I have been wearing makeup since the 8th grade. Yes I wasn't Kim K. or Kylie when i first started but i definitely learned ever since. I am a quick learner. I am self-taught and I know how to make your makeup not look cakey and hopefully last all day! Whether I am doing your makeup or teaching you how to do your makeup or teaching you how to do makeup on someone else, you will not be disappointed. I learn to work WITH my clients face not AGAINST, meaning if I do your makeup, you won't look like a completely different person. For example, if you have no eyebrows, no problem girl, I'll make sure you have eyebrows that perfectly frame your face. Also, I never judge my clients on how they look with or without makeup because everyone is beautiful and WE ARE ALL HUMAN! It's just makeup and sometimes makeup is a personal thing as is all depends on what my client wants. From the "no makeup" makeup look to full glam like Kim K. to drag, I can do it all to the best of my abilities! And yes i know how to match the perfect foundation to your skin tone as well! The base of the makeup is very important for a perfect makeup look! If it doesn't match its wack!

💌 Any other questions just ask! I would be happy to help and if you have read everything thus far, thank you so much for taking the time to read about me! I will reply either immediately or the same day!
