Love how she teaches the mechanics of learning to sing properly such as breathing correctly and posture right from the start for a beginner. Fantastic instructor!

Amazing singng instructor

Crystal has increased my daughter’s self-esteem and expressiveness through song. My daughter is now writing her own poetry and song lyrics, as well as being able to combat her once shyness quality. She loves to perform in front of others now and has a confidence level that amazes me, especially now that she is going into those “teen” years. I think a lot of thanks needs to go to Crystal, for assisting my daughter in reaching her current creative level!
Tamura H.
Great piano instructor

Crystal is an amazing piano instructor. She is patient, understanding and dedicated. My daughter has learned so much from her. My daughter’s love for music has increased immensely since learning how to play the piano. This would never have been able to be accomplished without Crystal’s professional and caring teaching style.

I am currently working on my doctoral degree in Psychology at Keiser University's online program. My long-term goal is to become an undergraduate professor and practicing psychologist at a university setting. Yet, my ultimate love is teaching. As a tutor, I enjoy making a genuine difference in the lives of students who have the potential to succeed in school, but just need that individualized attention to boost their level of understanding in subjects, level of comfort in subjects, and their level of concentration/ focus. As a tutor, I have five years of tutoring experience, working with students ranging from Pre-Kindergarten through 10th grade. In addition, I have special experience working with a range of students including those with Learning Disabilities such as Dyscalculia, Dyslexia, ADHD, and Autism spectrum disorder. My teaching methods emphasize successful tutor-student communication in which my pupils have a voice and presence in their learning environment. I focus on forming

Reasons to Learn English in Los Angeles

Although it’s the home of Hollywood and the famous hills where the stars reside, Los Angeles is more than just bright lights and glamour. As the second-most populated city in the nation, LA has more than four million diverse residents. The demographic breakdown is roughly 49 percent Latino, 29 percent white, 11 percent Asian, and 10 percent African American.

It’s no wonder that 244 different languages are spoken by LA residents, who hail from over 140 countries. As someone interested in taking English classes in Los Angeles, this city is a great place to learn because you’re surrounded by others who are learning, just like you.

Additionally, neighborhoods like Chinatown, Little Ethiopia, and Little Bangladesh provide a fun and engaging atmosphere for English classes for adults in Los Angeles. When you decide to study with one of our English tutors, you'll be working with a language expert who understands the local culture as well.

As you work with an English tutor in Los Angeles, you’ll find that your fluency will lead to many more options for employment. The city is the third-largest grossing metropolitan product in the world, behind Tokyo and New York respectively.

Everything from FIFA World Cup tournaments to the largest manufacturing center east of the Mississippi River is located here in Los Angeles. This is ideal if you’re considering English classes for adults in Los Angeles as a pathway to gainful employment.
