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.

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!

Peter was great, very kind and supportive. I will definitely consider another lesson with him.

As someone who needed to learn other languages, I can assist anyone whose native language is not English to become more proficient, or gain better conversational skills. My specialty is interview prep. I worked in IT, in marketing, have an MBA, interviewed candidates and been interviewed myself - so I can share insights with my students.

Diane has a great French accent and shares her teaching skills effectively. I would highly recommend her for all levels. We have read books and seen movies in French. Her world view and experience adds a lot. Vraiment!

Diane is a great German teacher! She always provides additional resources to delve into the subtleties of a translation or specific grammatical constructions and uses a variety of different books/activities so that the exercises never get boring.
Don H.
Once again, Diane has proven an exceptionally effective French instructor. She is conversant in American idioms and offers the French equivalents with ease. I am in awe of her ability to motivate and instruct.

"Nadia is an excellent instructor. When I started having lessons with her I spoke and wrote very bad English. I’m originally from Puerto Rico so I had a little knowledge of English but she has helped me progress immensely. I now know big words like immensely and I’m able to hold a conversation with people. I’m very touched by how supportive and attentive she has been. Not only providing English lessons but also explaining the cultural aspect of America. She has helped me in many way and I would recommend her to anybody who wants a person who cares to tutor them!"

"A knowledgeable and patient educator, Jesse has found a teaching style that perfectly balances challenge and inspiration. As a doctoral candidate in the sciences, it is important for me to assert my knowledge of a topic while capturing the attention of the reader. Jesse has taught me to transform bare facts and ideas into structured, sophisticated passages. He has played an active role in building my self-confidence and has helped me find an authentic writing voice to more clearly and elegantly express my thoughts. I am grateful to have his guidance and am eager to vouch for his excellence as a tutor."
