About Marwan
I started playing piano when I was 3, and began writing music at the age of 6. I've taught music and piano for over 12 years, and tutoring other subjects for over 5 years.

Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, I graduated from Cornell University in Electrical & Computer Engineering, with a minor in Music.

As a student, I was President of the Cornell Piano Society for 4 years. I spent much time teaching piano and music theory to fellow Cornell students, faculty, and staff. I've also organized many concerts, recitals, and events during my tenure.

After college, I went on to work for Intel & Apple as an engineer, while continuing to teach and tutor on the side. Later on, I founded my own startup company centered around Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Science, and unmet needs in the B2C market.

I typically travel
to each student's home for lessons. I travel all around the Bay Area: as far north as Richmond, as far south as Los Gatos, as far East as Livermore (and every place in between, including the Peninsula).

The past five months spent with Henry teaching me my second language has been worthwhile. My decision to choose him as my instructor has paid off exponentially. He immediately immerses you in the language and steadily increases your exposure as you gain proficiency. This is exactly what I was looking for in a teacher, someone to push and challenge me to learn but also there when I was having difficulty.

As someone who has zero experience with the German language he definitely provided the firm foundation I needed to confidently continue my studies alone. I have no doubt when the time comes for more lessons I will revert back to Henry.

Er ist ein sehr guter Lehrer!

About Melissa
I have been teaching since 2006 on a variety of topics. I graduated with an BA from the University of Wisconsin. My degree is in History with and emphasis on East Asian history.

I've taught all age groups from age 2 up to retirees. My teaching experience includes one-on-one and group classes in a variety of settings. I've taught corporate classes, private lessons, small groups, and traditional classroom lessons.

We have a student-centric philosophy of learning. Lessons are generally relaxed and designed to work towards accomplishing student determined goals. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. Special focus on topics like music theory, self-accompaniment, composition, song writing, and home recording are available as well.


What are your personal goals? We'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.

Lessons with small children are more focused on just having fun while developing a good musical foundation, but we prefer for them to have as much personal ownership of their lesson as possible.

About Dianne
Hello, I am a certified teacher and also an engineer. My main goal as an educator is to help students realize their true potential. Beyond helping my students complete homework or learn a new skill I provide them with tools for success. I teach my students so they can take charge of their learning.

I hold a Masters Degree in Education with an emphasis in Bilingual/Bicultural Education. Prior to earning my masters degree, I was a bilingual educator for six years. In addition, I have conducted research in language acquisition and math and have been trained using research based learning strategies. I also hold a Bachelors Degree in Mechanical Engineering and worked six years in this field.

I work with students all ages. I am available for homework, homeschooling, and enrichment activities. Before meeting with my students, I gather the ne
cessary information in order to create a lesson plan that will meet the student's specific needs. I have extensive experience in curriculum design. My approach to teaching is student-centered. I use a variety of methods to ensure that students are active participants in the learning process and get the most out of instruction.

I have worked with students with special needs including, learning disabled, ADHD and gifted and talented. When planning my lessons, I make sure that the activities included are appropriate for the student and use students feedback in future planning.

About Erik
I am currently an undergraduate student in engineering and music at Stanford University

MUSIC:

I currently study with Stephen Harrison of the Ives Quartet and SF Contemporary Music Players. I have been principal cellist of the Stanford Symphony Orchestra and Philharmonia, as well as a member of the Stanford Collaborative Orchestra. I have also appeared in many other recitals and shows on campus.

Originally from Menlo Park, I studied with Sara Styles and Irene Sharp, and was a longtime member of the El Camino Youth Symphony. I also participated in music festivals including California Summer Music, Interlochen, and the Tanglewood Institute, where I was principal cellist of the orchestra. I won both the Palo Alto and Los Altos branches of the California VOCE competition and placed fourth in the senior instrumental solo category of
the United States Open Music Competition.

In high school, I occasionally tutored my peers. Later, my teacher (Prof. Harrison) started deferring prospective students to me. I have worked primarily with adult beginners and intermediate high school students, though I am willing to take on anyone who is self-motivated and ready to learn. I try to break the complexities of the instrument's technique into individual tasks. I then assign repertoire that exercises these tasks individually, allowing students to build up intuitive expertise without losing focus.

MATH:

So far in college, I have taken many of the introductory engineering courses (vector calculus/solid mechanics/etc.) and maintained a 4.0 GPA. In high school, I received several departmental awards, regularly won CA Math League contests, and attained maximum scores on seven AP exams as well as the level two SAT subject test and math portion of the SAT.

I also spent two years volunteering at an after-school program sponsored by the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Peninsula.

About Sudeepto
I am committed to providing a completely personalized education to you, in a mindful and compassionate way, taking into account your unique individuality. You may belong to any age group needing tutoring in any area within my field of expertise: elementary to introductory graduate level physics (physical sciences), math and electrical engineering. You may just need regular practice to master the subject and score better in exams, or you may have difficulties ranging from misconceptions, a weak background in the mathematical sciences to a nightmarish phobia of math, I can help you.

I am an advanced degree holder in a technical field (Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, M.Eng and B.S. with Honors in Electrical Engineering from Cornell University) with a vast knowledge of the mathematical sciences. I know what it tak
es to succeed in academics up to the highest degree levels at premier institutions. I have been a teaching assistant for advanced undergraduate and graduate level electrical engineering courses (microwave electronics, VLSI fabrication, digital signal processing, adaptive signal processing, artificial neural networks, quantization noise). I have had experience tutoring undergraduate students in lower division physics (mechanics, heat, electromagnetism, optics, modern physics), and math (precalculus, calculus, linear/matrix algebra, and ordinary differential equations). I have also tutored physics/physical science and math (algebra 1 and 2) to high school and middle school students.

I have spent my life studying, applying and teaching math and science. Contrary to popular opinion, math and science is easy! I can show you how easy it really is and help you master it. I will teach you how to relax and focus. I will explain the concepts and the meanings of equations and formulas. Then we will practice together until you can solve math and science problems in your sleep!

Contact me to talk about your possibilities.
