About Dr. "Z"
I have a bachelor's degree and went to U.C. Berkeley right after high school. I am a unique tutor in that I also have an M.D.degree! I love working with children as well as adults. I have over 15 years of post-high school education and over 10 years of tutoring experience! I have been tutoring students professionally in Math, Language Arts, Science, among other subjects since 2008. Before that, I taught remedial workshop classes for more than 2 years. After medical school, I spent 2 years training in a externship program in psychiatry at an accredited residency hospital. What I learned in the program gives me an edge in teaching, and understanding the learning style of each individual student as well as working with those who have learning differences, such as those who have ADHD, Autism (ASD), Dyslexia, and Asperger's.

I cater my lessons individually to each student as each student's learning style is completely different. This way I maximize the learning experience each student has with me.

I was failing genetics and with online tutoring i went from a 69% to A. He really has your best interests in mind, when i asked him last minute to help and he was too packed helping other students he referred me to another well rounded tutor. dr. Z is worth the wait since he has a lot of patience for disabled students, he truly enables them. Thank you for helping me accomplish such a tough subject.

I just started nursing school at UCLA and had failed my first midterm. Dr. Z was really supportive and taught me how to study. He really knew how to teach the material. After tutoring with him on a daily basis, my grade went up to an A on the final, and I received an A- in the class ! Whoo!!!. This tutor is excellent in every way and I highly recommend him!

About Michelle
VOCAL COACH
Rehabilitating and strengthening voices are two of my top specialties, and each lesson will have specific exercises tailored to helping you transform your voice into the highest and best version of your instrument. I work with singers signed to labels as well as the indie artist just starting to find his/her voice, style, and signature sound. My coaching approach incorporates some of the newest technologies that have shown extraordinary results in breaking down the inner blocks of each artist. It is a tremendously joyful and fulfilling experience to watch as my students really let their instrument shine brightly, boldly, and with an aboslutely stunning groundedness as they discover how powerful they truly are.

MUSICIAN/SONGWRITER/PERFORMER

Poised, energized, and armed with unforgettable performance ability, Michelle G
. is a firework in the artistic arena. Her training began at the young age of 3 with the violin, and a few years later received classes for piano and voice. Excelling in all three, Michelle developed a very passionate and dramatic personality that eventually led her to more dramatic genres such as opera and stage acting. Her aptitude to understand human emotions and relationships gives her a wide spectrum to play in as an actress. There is an organic flow to her interpretations both as an actress and musician that leads the audience to feel her emotional current. Her honest characterizations introduce deeper perspectives on what seems like the ordinary roles and storylines. Amongst the many other leads that she has played, her participation in roles like “Susanna” in The Marriage of Figaro, or “Donna Elvira” in Don Giovanni embody much vibrancy and integrity.
Through the development of her voice as a singer and actress, she has crossed over into other media such as voice over commercial work and vocals for pop/main stream music productions. She has recently participated as a vocalist and violinist in the albums of artists such as international jazz pop artist David Longoria, Latin pop singer Erick Bolivar, Grammy-nominated percussionist Souhail Kaspar, and American Idol’s Seysha. Over the last few years she has unraveled her musical skills as a songwriter/composer/arranger and has even had some small victories acquiring music placements on TV shows (NCIS, short film “Sumtin’ Like Dat”, The Dictator) for herself and some of her colleagues. Her singing can also be heard on the hit tv show "Jane The Virgin", "Castle" and "Shameless" amongst others.

Education
Michelle completed her Associates of Arts for Music/Music Education at the age of 18, and got later graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Miami with a Bachelor's of Arts for Musical Theater and Music Business, as well as from Florida International University with a Master's of Music in Vocal Performance.

*** Lesson Details ***
I tailor my lessons to my student's needs, style, abilities, and goals. Learning is truly a fun and passionate adventure for me, and my enthusiasm has consistently been a contagious quality :) I love to challenge myself & my students to discover how immense their true potential is, and I create a safe and fun environment to explore such facets.

My curriculum is combination of solid tradition (Suzuki method for piano & violin, and Bel Canto technique for singing) interwoven with pop-culture, and modern influences. Within the first 3-6 months, my students will know the basic building blocks of music - which includes scales, arpeggios, triads, intervals, technique, and performance repertoire; and for my singers this will include proper breath technique, tone placement, support, very often increased vocal range (both high and low), and will feel significantly stronger vocally and more confident getting up to sing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Full size Keyboard, mics, pro tools, Violin (electric, acoustic, and Chinese Ehru)

*** Specialties ***
Specialties include:
- Audition technique and prep
- Vocal Technique

About Catalina
Loving what I do is what makes me an effective and popular Spanish Teacher/Tutor. As a Native Speaker of the target language, I had to learn English. Having had that experience, has helped me to relate to the difficulty involved in language acquisition and to become more compassionate with my students and their needs.
I have been teaching / tutoring successfully for over 15 years now. I have worked with students from elementary school - college level ( Undergrad/Grad). I have a Certificate in AP Spanish Literature, which is the highest level of High School Spanish. I have also worked with adults who wanted to increase their knowledge of the language and culture for both leisure and business reasons.
Keeping in mind the needs and goals of my students, each class is designed to cater to the individual's needs. !Buena Suerte con su
aprendizaje del idioma!

About Parinaz
Hello,

My name is Parinaz. I graduated from a top-rated high school as a top ranking student. At present, I am a biology major student at Irvine Valley College with 4.00 GPA, and my long-term goal is getting my doctorial degree in the healthcare field. Besides, I am a freelance Spanish, Persian, and belly dancer and choreography dances for different occasions and Irvine Valley College's dance showcases.

I love tutoring because I am experienced to simplify complex subjects and explain them to my peers and students in the most comprehensible way, so it could be never forgotten. Another reason to become tutor is gaining more experience and connecting with different students from different cultures and backgrounds. In addition, I possess my own unique methods of approaching a subject and understanding the details of the matter in the mo
st efficient manner. In my opinion, sharing our information and learning new things from each other is the most effective way of progressing in our academic and career life. Being a professional time manager in my life, has always helped me to assist my students not only to make progress in their subjects but also set up a productive schedule.

I have a very strong mathematical background when I was in elementary school untill now. The first important thing which many students struggle with is how to read and understand the problem. In order to solve any problems, students should put about 30 seconds to read the problem carefully. The next step is analyzing the problem and finding the appropriate concepts and formulas. The last step is how to apply your knowledge.This stepwise approach has always helped me to covey the most complex mathematical subjects to my students in a simple manner and easy language.

Helping students to foster a mathematical and hence analytical mind is my ambition. It is then we could develop an intelligent community which is self-reliant and self-driven. It would definitely give them some degree of liberation from the Monster called “Numbers”.

Furthermore, I am always curious about how different substances react with each other and how to carry out different laboratory projects. Therefore, my passion combines with my major and create a very good chemistry tutor. I can draw a clear picture and explain everything clearly in this field because I know how to simplify chemistry for students and help them to love this subject. Many students think chemistry is about memorization, but actually most of it is like a game that you should learn its tricks.

Understanding Chemistry would also help one to understand the chemical reaction in our surrounding environment including our own body. Life is all about how chemically the living cells react to each other, and how people could love or hate each other. Understanding these chemical reactions could definitely help the students to have a better life, and I am here to help you with the needed understanding.

I hope I can help my students to attain their goals and be successful in their academic and social lives.
