About John
MUSIC:
I began playing music in a blue collar, east coast town. I learned from playing in bars and clubs from the time I was 16 years old. I learned quickly how to play to and for an audience as well as how to connect with an audience as small as 5 people, and as large as 50,000 people. .

Playing lead guitar and singing, my first two bands toured extensively. We played tiny backrooms to big clubs to amphitheaters, opening for all sorts of people, such as: Love/Hate, The Misfits, Rainshine, Dee Snider of Twisted Sister, Guttermouth, Firehouse, and other such bands. I'm the lead guitarist an
d co-lead vocalist for my current rock band which recently played at the Chivas Arena, the Orange County Fair and we have a regular gig at the Kibbitz room in West Hollywood. CA. We perform originals and covers.

I've also spent a lot of time in the studio, and put out several indie rock CDs over the years, as well as assisted in audio engineering trouble shooting in the studio for a top 10 Billboard hit recording artist.

WRITING:
I am a Published novelist with "Nerves" (2012), "Dust Of The Dead" (2015) and "Ghost Heart" (2016). I have been in around 50 anthologies, short stories, magazines and novellas, and have been nominated for a Bram Stoker Award 3 times so far. I have also written for The Examiner, Diversity News Magazine, Fangoria, Dark Discoveries and others.

FILM:
I have made a few feature films and worked with a cast of A list directors, producers and actors. I have also shot for Living With Frankenstein, Diversity News Television, The HWA, and Various projects ranging from book trailers to actors reels. I have edited for Film, Television and created Trailers from start to finish.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm told I'm pretty laid back, but that doesn't mean I'm not a stickler for discipline. In the end, it's up to you to do the runs and scales and chords, so there's only so much I can do. I try to inspire my students to do well, as it's the most rewarding thing you'll do, creatively speaking. There's nothing more satisfying than hearing music being made from your own hands. I can get you there, but you have to do your share.

One of the biggest goals I have is to get people up and playing as soon as possible because it's very inspiring to get there. I started teaching guitar when I was 16, and each one of my students was playing in bands within their first year. They were extremely motivated, and I hope I was key to their inspiration. They tell me I was.

I've also taught many people not interested in just performing, but who have come to music for different reasons. Some found it therapeutic, others wanted to do it, 'just because' -- and that's perfectly wonderful reasons to want to express yourself through music.

Another area I really love teaching is songwriting. I grew up in a time where playing lightning fast medieval scales was all the fashion. Well, that just wasn't in me. I was more into songs, so I focused on that area. I've written tons and tons, and have been the main songwriter for all the bands I've been a member of.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Recording Studio, piano, guitars, vocal booth and other instruments.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I've got my own guitar and bass. I can bring a small amplifier if need be.

*** Specialties ***
My methods vary from student to student. Usually I try and assess how each person is comfortable, and re-assess over the life of our lessons together, as it can change.

I'm a folk and rock player, but I've taught so many different styles at this point, it's great.

Very Patient and Knowledgeable

John is an extremely patient, giving and compassionate teacher. He knows how to trouble shoot and get you where you need to go. He was a born teacher and leader. His musicianship is excellent and he knows how to play, as well as perform. I highly recommend this teacher. I can't say enough wonderful things about him.

About Daniel
818-577-7000

I'm a graduate of UCLA School of Engineering with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering. I have a passion for explaining how the physical world works through math and physics along with 9 years of tutoring experience in those subjects, test prep, and mentorship programs. The teaching strategy I believe in emphasizes subject fundamentals, a powerful and necessary tool for higher problem solving. This strategy has proven very effective regardless of the student's educational background or mental ability. Besides being knowledgeable, I am motivating, caring, and patient in guiding your
student to academic success!

Executive Functioning is a separate realm that tutoring can assist in. It deals with cognitive processes including organization, time management, and study skills. Much of the difficulty students face in academic subjects can be attributed to the lack of executive functioning. They either cannot keep up with the pace and workload that advanced courses demand or haven't figured out the best way to study for themselves. I am able to assess a student's shortcomings and formulate a plan for higher achievement.

Math:
• Elementary • Pre-Algebra • Algebra 1 & 2 • Geometry • Pre-Calculus
• Trigonometry • AP Calculus • Business Calculus • Differential Equations

Physics:
• AP Physics 1 & 2 • College Physics

Test Prep:
• SAT I & II • ACT • ISEE • SSAT • HSPT • GRE • and more

Computers:
• MS Word • Excel • PowerPoint • Adobe Acrobat • General Windows/MAC

Mentorship:
• Grade Monitoring • Teacher Collaboration

Executive Functioning:
• Organization • Time Management • Study Skills

• Completely turned around achievement and self-confidence of mentored students
• Track record of student improvement particularly in math and physics

About Erol
My style and attitude toward teaching tends to be conversational, reflective, and interactive, along the lines of current research on effective education. I have developed a talent with certain creative arts, such as imaginative writing and electronic music production; as a result, I am computer literate, capable of assisting with computer assembly, maintenance, and design, as well as productivity software. Due to my limited funds, I do not have direct experience with the Adobe suite, but I have extensive knowledge of related, free distributions that are transferable. I also have formal educat
ion in the field of English, innovative leadership, and Education. My current level is Master of Arts with advancement to the dissertation phase of a PhD program. My most popular subjects are as follows:

American-English Pronunciation Practice (ESL):
*****Each Lesson with Free Video & MP3 Recording*****
Carefully following Burkkowsky's (1969) multi-media method, I have taught this subject for over five years for public and private causes, such as library, individuals, and language schools. My emphasis for pronunciation is a scientific, comprehensive overview and treatment of the various sounds, rhythms, inflections, and patterns the spoken language integrates. I encourage practicing and mastering both the sounds themselves, as well as how the sounds are connected and contextualized. I use contemporary sound recording and .wav editing software to involve audio feedback and self-monitoring.

Sources: Burkkowsky, Mitchess (1969) Teaching American Pronunciation to Foreign Students. New York: Warren Green, 1969.

German Language and Culture:
*****Each Lesson with Free Video & MP3 Recording*****
I have grown up bilingual English and German, attending an international school from a very young age. I attended, also, a German public secondary school, where I earned a diploma. I taught German in the language lab of a community college, for special needs students, and for private agencies, such as Tutor Doctor. My emphasis is on a comparative introduction of the language to draw out a common ground and familiarize possibly daunting differences. I also enjoy asserting that German is often underestimated as a rewarding second language to study.

Microsoft Excel:
This spreadsheet and data management software program is of crucial, pivotal importance in any business and financial environment. The program enables efficient and prompt development of arithmetic and statistical calculations of vast data sets. It also helps to visualize and juxtapose related or even discrepant variables. My approach to teaching the program is cumulative and holistic, starting with an introduction to personal inventory management to the processing of large data sets using pivot tables, charts, and dashboards. My emphasis is on making the program as intelligible and transparent as possible to avoid frustration and intimidation. I use a lot of examples and visuals that are readily available.
Typing:
I teach the touch-typing method that is the convention for most journalistic and input-intensive organizational settings. I teach the home row, proper finger and hand positions, proficiency with left and right hands, as well as posture and concentration methods. I enrich the teaching with resources from the web, such as speed-building and error reduction.

Very caring and supportive. She makes you feel very comfortable. She takes her time to explain what we are doing and she makes sure you understand. The lesson was done in such a way that I got a lot of information that made sense and did not feel overwhelmed. Her teaching style is geared to the individual. The hour went by so quickly. I would highly recommend her for lessons.
