I teach AP English Literature & Composition at Orinda Academy in Orinda, CA. I have a decade of teaching experience within various environments and demographics, including elite private schools and working with learning differences.

I also help students with SAT Prep, college guidance, and college essays.

I've published three novels called The Sleep Trilogy and also offer my services as a creative writing instructor and editor.

I also attended the James Madison University music program. I have played piano for 20 years and guitar for 15.

What I Learned From Peter.

- THE METRONOME IS SO IMPORTANT
- The voice guides the guitar if you’re more of a singer
- Repetition is key
- Practice songs that aren’t in your style to ease your way into guitar
- The power resides in strumming rhythmically
- Focus is more difficult that it seems when combining singing and guitar
- Guitar is an art in itself and itself you shouldn’t master guitar, you should be it’s friend.
- Open mics and video content are the key to more success as they expose you to criticism (good or bad)
Again, the guitar is your companion.

For any aspiring musician or any musician that needs guidance and improvement on the guitar, Peter is a great teacher.
Dhiraj
Peter is very patient and great teaching my 9yr old son. We take father and son lessons together which has been amazing. Peter is naturally talented and plays many other instruments all in from his home studio. He is also extremely flexible and accommodating. Highly recommended!

As someone who needed to learn other languages, I can assist anyone whose native language is not English to become more proficient, improve their grammar, and gain better conversational skills.
One of my specialties is interview prep. I worked in IT, in marketing, and have an MBA, interviewed candidates and been interviewed myself - so I can share insights with my students.
However I also hold "regular conversation," while I listen attentively to my student, and correct grammar and style.

About Diane

Bonjour! Hello! Hallo! I teach several languages: French, German, and English for non-native English speakers. I tailor my lessons to each student's individual needs and I always go above and beyond the basic lesson, with follow up between lessons. I try to make learning a language fun and alive

I understand the difficulties of learning English, especially when coming from a completely different language such as Mandarin Chinese or Cantonese. As I learn more about the Chinese language, I've learned how to break the communication and cultural barriers.

I'd love to help improve English speaking, writing, communication, and overall understanding of the English language, specifically tailored for native Chinese speakers.

Unfortunately, yesterday was my last lesson with Mark, as I am moving to Guam. I would definitely not be giving up my weekly lesson with him if that weren't the case! I've learned so much in the short couple months taking lessons from him. I would recommend him to anyone of any skill level. Very helpful and kind. :)

Note: Lesson times and days are available by request.

Are you looking for a way to improve your English? Would you like the chance to improve your reading or writing skills, grammar, conversation and listening skills, increase your vocabulary or work on any problem you may have with the English language. If you are a native or a non-native speaker and want to improve any of the skills involved in the English language at any level and at any age, I would like to help you do just that.

Teaching English/ESL is my passion. When I am teaching, I become energized and totally involved in the moment. It's a great feeling, and I use this energy to make my teaching the best it can be for the student--exciting, interesting, informative, active, and never boring.

I remember when I was in graduate school working toward my MA degree in English, and I had a very boring professor for one of my classes. He sat in front of the class and talked non-stop for three hours. He was incredibly

I've worked closely with Linda as a volunteer for the Placer Nature Center, in which she was the staff Naturalist. She prepared and conducted in person lessons for children of all ages and trained the adult volunteers. Her teaching style is thorough, detailed, and engaging. She is patient, kind, and very aware of people's learning styles and how to best help them understand what they are studying. I highly recommend her.
Dave
Linda is an excellent teacher whose commitment and dedication is excellent.

I supervised Linda as she worked as a naturalist leading thousands of school children through a variety of nature themed subjects. She was able to ensure each student understood the topic and was an claiming presence during the programs.

I recommend Linda for any teaching assignment she endeavors to undertake.
Rob
I was glad to work with Linda while she was the Naturalist at Placer Nature Center. She brought many strengths to the position, which I had seen filled by others before her.
Her full career in education prepared her to make sense of the lightly organized accumulation of resources that she had to work with and to rationalize them to the needs and realities of the program pre-COVID-19. She reviewed, reorganized and rewrote lessons and programs as needed and was able to communicate clearly with the various volunteers, interns and staff.
Linda is very committed to children, which was evident in her faithfully meeting each group personally to make them welcome and be sure they remained safe. During a period when she could walk only with effort and support, she smilingly led nature walks and kept her teaching skills fresh.
Linda is a dedicated teacher whose classes are sure to be the best!

"Great Teacher! One of the nicest people I've ever met. Straightforward and patient with her students. I myself may have not been the fastest to pick up all of the vocabulary and learn the material too quickly but she was extremely patient with me and was very thorough with the education we receive. Would definitely recommend her!"

"About my class: It’s very good. The reading part is very interesting (that Ted talk). Before that I didn’t read loudly. When I started Ted talk Odaya she advised me to read at loud, when I didn’t understand something. When I practiced that later at home, I felt the change. I am very much excited for my next class"

English Language Conversations for Beginners

Although words may be limited and simple, it is still possible to enjoy conversations in English even if you are a beginner. I think that it’s essential to be able to express basic needs and to clearly express your identity. Let’s get started with the very basics and then we’ll build from there. Greetings and Introductions: When meeting new people you need to be able to greet them. If you are in an informal situation you might say, “Hey, I’m (name), nice to meet you.” In order …
