About Amy
I have been a voice, acting, and teacher of creative arts for over 25 years. My background includes ten years of classical training with Maestro Julio Berrocal, as well as vocal training through the Feldenkrais approach with Marcy Lindhiemer. In acting, I have studied with renowned Stanislavsky scholar Sonia Moore and Master acting teacher of the Strasberg Method, Marcia Haufrecht. I received a B.A. For comparative literature and creative writing at the State University of New York at Purchase and have recently completed my Master's degree in social work at Walden University.
I believe, within all of us, Is the ability to express something distinctive and original. I work to help the student discover their individual and unique voice, whether it be through singing, acting, or writing. I share with my student's tools to gain the abilit
y and confidence to achieve their goals. I empathize deeply with the challenges students may face when pursuing a life in the creative and performing arts, having worked professionally in those areas for most of my adult life. I believe, it is the teacher's job to respect each student's individual process of learning.
My students have gone on to become recording artists, Broadway performers, movie actors, Blues and cabaret artists, and published writers.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice
I am an empathetic teacher, sensitive to the student's individual process of learning. My singing lessons usually start with breathing and relaxation exercises. Vocal exercises come next, then when the student is fully warmed up, we will begin to work on songs. It is important that the student be part of the process of picking material since the more they personally respond to the material the apter they are to be engaged in their lessons and the more quickly they will learn. After three to six months they will understand the fundamentals of breathing and relaxation and its importance to proper vocal training. They will have begun the process of extending their range and will understand the principles of performance in song.
Acting
As an acting teacher and coach, I tailor my classes to the needs of each student. I utilize improvisatory and sensory techniques to help unleash spontaneity. I also encourage the students to use their personal experiences as a way to access a full range of emotions. I enjoy working with the student on script analysis, so as to discover the underlying motivations of the character the student is working on.
Creative and Lyric Writing
I use prompts as a way to get the student writing. Often, I will ask the student to write for stretches of time without editing themselves. It is important to unleash imagination before beginning the process of editing. Many times it is the unexpected that is the most compelling.

*** Studio Equipment ***
home- 10 minutes away from Manhattan with piano, seating for parents
-practice studio seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a piano, cd/mp3 player and an large library of songbooks to work from. The student should bring sheet music of songs they want to work on and a recording device.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching how to sing rock, pop, musical theater, jazz, and blues without hurting the voice as well as method acting instruction.

Amy is a truly incredible teacher and person. All of her students love her and those I've referred have thanked me profusely for the introduction. My daughter has studied voice with Amy for a number of years and after just the first lesson, the improvement in her technique and confidence was remarkable. Amy can bring out the best in anyone's voice. She is encouraging and nurturing and provides the safe and positive relationship anyone would want to have with their teacher.

About Cody
With my two Bachelor's degrees in Music Composition and Technology, I began tutoring students in piano, voice, and composition as it was part of my training. I also have experience writing and editing essays, books, and more for several independent clients. I have experience writing my own books as well. I have written two so far, but am getting ready to write a third. I am a copious editor and can catch grammatical and other errors with ease. This is why tutoring in English would be great for me.
I thought I would add basic math for those school-aged children that are having a little trouble with it in their classes.
Usually, I teach lessons in my home in Diamond Bar or online, but if the need arises, I could surely work out coming to the students' homes for one-on-one tutoring help. With me, most students click after a few lessons and
understand what they couldn't in the classroom. I help the students by teaching in innovative ways that will catch their attention more than standard teaching methods. Students should consider me for I can make learning fun and never a chore!

*** Lesson Details ***
I use a wide variety of techniques to sing, play piano and other instruments. Techniques include straight vowel singing (no words) to test how long to hold notes, using color to help people sight read, using improvisational techniques in order to play jazz, rock, classical and many other styles of music.
I use what they student has under his or her belt as a starting point to see what lessons we could start them on.
I also assist with online lessons to make transportation a thing of the past. If you've got a webcam or Skype, I can do long-distance lessons with you! So, I am here to help!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Alesis Recital Keyboard
Music sheets
Web cam
Mac computer (MacBook Pro)
Finale music notation software to help in composition and theory lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Music paper for away lessons.
Finale for composition and music theory lessons.
Can use macbook for more elaborate teaching or demonstration if need be.

*** Specialties ***
I do teach classical composition with specialties in ensemble and chamber music. I also specialize in songwriting for pop and other media.
I teach voice and vocal techniques of sacred choral and vocal music.
I teach classical and jazz piano and improvisation. I also have the distinction in being able to teach students with special needs or learning disabilities as I have a mild form of cerebral palsy and understand what students with special needs go through.

About Javier
Hola, cómo estás? I am a certified native teacher. I was born in Madrid, Spain (Europe), and I live in California since 2014.
I love teaching, and have all my life. I have a lot of experience; I know how to teach Spanish in the best way, with effective lessons, with patience and with speaking slowly and clearly. You will learn the best proper pronunciation, our differences, our customs, our expressions, etc
You will be able to speak with great accent, emphasys, positions of the mouth ... and more options of the language that it is advasible to be taught by natives teachers.
We will learn by enjoying and practicing, through one to one conversation, exercises, repetitions, movies, books, songs ...

Should be great as well to take lessons with 2 students. Works really good and it´s cheaper. The lessons are more fun because we can int
eract, so we will learn faster and better.

In regards to how I teach, I incorporate the essential modalities of speaking, listening, reading, and writing. By practicing with all these forms, you will feel success in a few classes.
I am flexible with my hours, and I am available to travel to meet personally or to do a class online, either individually or in a small group. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve excellence in your studies!

Nos vemos ! :) (See you guys)

About Nan
I started to learn the violin since I was 3 years old. My mom chose this beautiful instrument for me, she thought it's convenient to carry. I came to America after I finished my music education degree in China, then I studied two years in the US for my Master's degree in violin performance. After I got my Master's degree, I found out there are still a lot more space I want to improve, so I came to California to continue my violin study and I got my Artist Diploma in violin performance. I played hundreds of concerts, including chamber and symphony concerts. I have given 5 violin solo concerts in the past years. I have been playing with the professional symphony orchestras. For the violin, no matter which area you want to improve, I can give you the most useful and effective suggestions to help you improve fast.

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.
