About Melissa

I have been teaching since 2006 on a variety of topics. I graduated with an BA from the University of Wisconsin. My degree is in History with and emphasis on East Asian history.

I've taught all age groups from age 2 up to retirees. My teaching experience includes one-on-one and group classes in a variety of settings. I've taught corporate classes, private lessons, small groups, and traditional classroom lessons.

We have a student-centric philosophy of learning. Lessons are generally relaxed and designed to work towards accomplishing student determined goals. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. Special focus on topics like music theory, self-accompaniment, composition, song writing, and home recording are available as well.



What are your personal goals? We'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.

Lessons with small children are more focused on just having fun while developing a good musical foundation, but we prefer for them to have as much personal ownership of their lesson as possible.

Melissa is patient, explains the concepts very well, she is hands on and makes the lessons very entertaining and dynamic. The way she selects the material for her students she finds the right balance between effective learning, fun and interesting. We are very fortunate to have her as a piano teacher.

My daughter struggled to stay focused for the whole one hour. It would be better to have video conference option so she can see the teacher.

Traci is a fantastic teacher because she is a fantastic dancer. She knows how to guide you whether you are overcoming an injury or trying to take your dancing to the next level. Traci takes ballet seriously but with lots of humor and grace!

I reached out to Traci to brush up on my ballet technique when I was preparing for an audition. She is a wonderful teacher! Her corrections are always specific and very helpful. Working with her has really boosted my technique and made me feel more confident walking into dance calls.

Traci is an eloquent and experienced teacher with a wide variety of ability levels. She is fair and balanced in the classroom and keeps the atmosphere fun while expecting the most of her students.

As a Director of a company and school, I have seen many guest teachers come and go - Traci is a phenomenal teacher.

Yazmin was terrific! My daughter felt very comfortable working with her. Yazmin was confident with the chemistry content and very good at explaining and
re-teaching the material. I highly recommend Yazmin and are looking forward to working with her again.

About Matthew

I am a part-time online teacher specializing in teaching english as a second language and history. I graduated from Curry College in May 2014 with a B.A. in Politics and History and a minor in English. I subsequently completed a 10 month ESL fellowship in Israel from September 2015 until July 2016. I began teaching online to Chinese students in August 2017 through the company of 51talk and was promoted once during my time with them. Currently, I teach online both through that company though also offer my own lessons which I design and use.

My lessons focus on specific words and how they are used. For example the most common word in the english language is the word "the." My corresponding lesson focuses on basic sentence examples using that word and also offers the student the opportunity to construct their own. I have similar lessons f

or "that," "this," "or," "of," and many others. My ultimately goal is to give the student a basic understanding of the 50 most common words in the English language upon which future lessons can build. More advanced lessons are available upon request.

In addition to English, I am also adept at History. I have always been fascinated with the subject and enjoy assisting others with historical assignments. In addition to graduating with a degree in history, I also gained the Politics and History award of my college upon graduation and studied the History of the Italian Renaissance for three months in Florence Italy in 2010. I am adept at essay writing and historical research.

About David

Hello! My name is David and helping students succeed in school is my passion.

My tutoring career began in 2011 when I volunteered for Reading Partners, a non-profit organization that assists elementary school students who are struggling with reading comprehension skills. I later applied as a writing tutor for CSU East Bay's Student Center for Academic Achievement (SCAA) and helped college students from many social and ethnic backgrounds polish their essay writing skills. After graduating with a bachelor's in English in 2012, I became an independent contractor with Buddy System Tutoring and helped high school students in the Bay Area improve their writing and study skills.

I earned my teaching credential in 2015 and have four years of experience teaching English to middle and high school students. I have had the pleasure of working w

ith students of different backgrounds and ages throughout my teaching career; my youngest student was a third grader from Oakland, and my oldest was a 65-year-old college student from Taiwan. I would be thrilled to use my extensive experience to help you or your child improve their reading and writing skills.

I have collaborated with David before on creative writing projects and he is a wonderful person to work with. I have also had experience teaching at the same school where he taught high school English, and in my experience, David would make a thoughtful and personable instructor. He has a relatable sense of humor and clear way of explaining concepts. I would recommend him as a tutor or writing coach for any middle or high school student.

"Mena was hired to evaluate and develop academic needs in math for my son, David . He is punctual and ready to start objectives immediately. He guided my s
on in current lesson plans and then helped to develop skills needed for future chapters. He showed a desire to teach and develop tools to help him achieve high scores and to learn concepts or rationals for the importance of each equation. I highly recommend Mena for his ability to tutor and I wish him success in his future goals."
