About Diane
I have a degree and certification in violin and piano from the Boston Conservatory as well as a Master's Degree from the University of Maryland. I have had additional training and certification as a Suzuki teacher from The Suzuki Teacher Training Institute. I am a member of SAGWA-Suzuki Association of the Greater Washington Area as well as SAA-Suzuki Association of the Americas. I have played all around the world including the Vatican, White House, Paris, Russia, England and Wales as well as in Concert Halls such as Carnegie Hall and Kennedy Center. I have taken students with me to perform as well in these countries and also every major concert hall in the Washington, D.C. area. I give my students opportunities to perform whenever there is an opportunity. In addition I work with students to earn music scholarships to private school
s and colleges. I am also a judge in the Young Artist Award in Maryland. In addition, I have received two White House awards for my performances at the White House, I am also a member of Psi Chi International Honor Society.

Music has been an important part of my life. It represents so much that is good in life and I do my best to communicate this to my students. I am training my students not just to be musicians but to love music for life.

*** Lesson Details ***
I treat each student as an individual since everyone is different. For some I might use a traditional approach, some just the Suzuki approach and others a combination of techniques. Whatever produces the best results. My goal is not to make strictly classical musicians but to train students to love music and carry this love throughout life. My repertoire consists of everything including traditional, Suzuki, Disney, Showtunes, etc. I have taken students to perform little concerts at the White House, schools, hospitals and concert halls to get the real feel of performing. I view lessons as a three way relationship between myself, the student and the parent so that the parent is not left out. I even have a small group called Musical Magic which incorporates magic into music. I feel I am laid back but am able to accomplish my goal through positive reinforcement. Every child or student wants to feel good about his/her playing. If you believe in yourself, anything is possible. If you want online lessons, please contact me through Take Lessons since I have additional availability to teach online. In the past six months my students have performed for the National Humane Society at their animal ball, a multi teacher recital on a local stage, and just two weeks ago seven of them performed at Strathmore. This summer I have two more concerts planned. Coming up will be an all instrument graduation with several other teachers where students receive medals for their performances. No student is required to perform but if they want to the opportunity is there. All students are required to have an instrument prior to beginning lessons. If students need to rent a violin, I will provide you with the name of a violin dealer that both rents and sells string instruments. Piano students must have a piano or keyboard.

I have also started a toddler music appreciation program geared for the 1-4age range. The purpose of this program is to expose very young children to the fun of Music through instruments, songs and play.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I teach at home and have both a grand piano and electric keyboard in addition to a harp and violin.

*** Travel Equipment ***
When my students have to travel to perform, I make sure they have everything they need.

*** Specialties ***
Traditional and Suzuki approaches for both violin and piano. I also teach children with learning disabilities.and have extensive summer programs to help students with auditions for youth orchestras and school orchestras.

Diane has been teaching piano to both our kids for over three years now. The fact that it has been this long and both kids is testament enough of our happiness with Diane's abilities. Not only are the kids learning the techniques they are more importantly learning to love music and piano. This is no easy feat specially in these days of iPads etc.

Both my kids now ages 12 and 8.5 love lessons and diane.. we hope many more years of this relationship

Thanks to diane for being a positive formative influence on our kids

About Daniel
I love teaching and using humor to make learning fun. I like a lot of different styles of music, with a special love for blues, jazz, rock, and video game music. I've been playing the guitar for almost 20 years, the piano for nearly 15 years, and I've been singing since high school. I taught myself to play guitar because I wanted to perform songs while singing, and because I started to feel silly playing air guitar in front of the mirror in my room while singing along to my favorite songs.

Now, I'm a full-time licensed music teacher, a manager and singer for a choir that records video game soundtracks, and an online teacher. I really enjoy using people's interests to teach them instead of relying on the same old repertoire for every student. If it's not fun, you won't want to keep learning after all! I look forward to learning abou
t you, your musical goals, and the kind of music that inspires you to play/sing!

For prospective Wordpress students: I have been creating websites since middle school and currently own and operate a profitable website (vgmacademy.com). I love building sites and teaching others how to build sites themselves. Whether your focus is personal in nature or you’re looking to create a website for your business, I can help.

About Corey
Hi my name is Corey, I'm currently a full-time student in the Bay Area. I'm pursuing a degree in Computer Science and I'm a huge nerd when it comes to math and other subjects of science. I have a strong passion for helping other students just like myself excel in their academic goals!

I began tutoring once I got back in school. At first, it started off as a little side gig I didn't I think much of; for me, it was a fun act of kindness that also gave me a chance to better understand material I already knew. It was after I got positive feedback from students when I realized tutoring is something I really enjoy and started taking far more seriously.

As a tutor the most effective approach I found is to first make sure my students have a firm grasp on the first principles involved and expand from there by taking a deeper dive into the
abstract of the concept at hand. I always teach in general notation along with a visual basis as this greatly helps my students better understand the concepts they're learning. From here I transition into individual and situational cases giving my student a chance to show me how well they are understanding the lesson.

The goal I set for myself as a tutor is to be sure that my students understand every topic covered on the same level that I understand it myself. So far in my approach this has shown to be the best method in achieving this goal. Most of the students I've worked with were on the verge of failing their classes and in fact these are the student I like to focus on because it gives me the opportunity to show that my approach to learning works, with everyone of my students finishing out their semester nothing short of a B.

If you're interested in taking one of my lessons and think my approach to learning is something that will work for you, please contact me and let's get that A this semester!

Corey has been the best tutor I've learned from! I started taking lessons with him about half way through a semester that I was taking trig. At this time I had a D in the class and was completely lost during lectures, just after two lessons with him my understanding in trig sky rocketed, I was able to move my grade from a D to a B! There's no way I could've done this without his help!

About Reza
Greetings,

My name's Reza. So my bio won't be the typical programmers bio, as I'm not a typical programmer. I find that people choose to work with someone whom they like. Thus, I’ll get into a bit about me, my life, and my story into coding so you can understand a little about who I am.

I really wasn't supposed to become a programmer. While I was a little geeky and played video games, I generally was pretty extroverted and hung out with a lot of people and went to parties growing up. I never saw myself as someone super ‘intelligent’. I thought I was smart, yes, but definitely not a techie. I didn't think I was a ‘nerd' either. So if I wasn't a nerd, how'd I be able to learn something so technical? Because only nerds would and could learn programming and IT, right?? Or so I thought at the time.

I originally planned to become
a psychologist because I was fascinated by how the mind worked and wanted to figure it out as well as help people figure out their own minds in order to be successful in any area of life they wanted to be. This passion stemmed from a young age of 13 when I received a book on how to be a confident man and attract women. See, someone from my video game clan in warcraft 3(I mentioned I was a geek) ended up sending me this e-book that changed my life. My interest in personal development began around dating and meeting women, and then shifted to becoming the best version of myself I could be. I began self-teaching myself social skills, confidence, leadership, body language, positive thinking and transformed myself from a shy geek to someone who could speak in front of a room full of people in a seminar. This ended up leading me to me working as a social dynamics coach at the age of 18 helping men and women obtain power in their social, and dating lives. I coached individuals, ran seminars and helped with the curriculum design.

My love of self-development and coaching drew me towards becoming a psychologist. Even more so, I began dealing with depression and that fueled my fire of wanting to understand what was going on so I could solve the problem. It’s like when you’re dealing with a bug in programming and you have this intense desire to figure out the problem so your application can work! Except this time, the application was my brain and it wasn’t working properly. I ended up being forced to drop everything, school and the job I had, in order to deal with my mental health. It got so bad, I didn't think I'd ever be able to work again. A simple delivery job felt too daunting for me. But, as do all great changes that occur, I began taking full responsibility for my life and began figuring out my health little by little. I put the onus on me to have a healthy mind. I began researching and self-teaching myself about brain-chemistry, and how the brain and mental illness worked. I would use this knowledge to self-tailor a personal treatment plan that let me crawl out of depression and burst back into life. I ended up finished my psychology degree and got to working at an Apple store as a tech specialist. Again, just as with social skills, my ability to self-teach myself a particular skill yielded me tremendous results that changed my life.

Well, that notion would be put to the test a year and a half ago after I visited Colombia. I fell love with the country, and thought to myself, "how can I work and travel at the same time?" I did some research, and found out that programming was a great way to live the digital nomad lifestyle I so desperately wanted. Again, I didn't think I could do it, because, well, I'm not a nerd... or I'm not smart enough...or I'm a 'peoples' person...or I'm a sales guy, not a tech guy....or I'm too old, even if I was only 26(lol)...or I have depression and my mind can't focus on difficult tasks for very long so I should stick to simpler tasks...or *Insert excuse*. Blah blah blah... but, I decided too actually try to programming first before I agreed with any of those excuses I was making in my head. And, then something happened... I don't what it was, but from the moment I wrote my first print statement and I saw something happen in the console, I was hooked. It felt like an addiction. It felt like magic. It felt like I was in control. I felt like this was my ticket to success, freedom, and most importantly, getting my life back to the next level. Even though I felt behind in progress compared to my peers in the field of success/career due to mental illness, I knew programming could be my ticket back on top. It felt like my very own comeback story!

So began my long journey into learning code. And I'll tell you what, immediately the next day, things began getting more difficult and my brain began to hurt in ways it never had before. It felt like it was going to explode out of my head. But, I kept persisting and kept simply staring at the screen and gave my brain no choice but to figure out the problem it was looking at. And low and behold, somehow, someway, I stuck with coding and a year and a half later, I'm working on an appointment setting App to sell to local small businesses. All the meanwhile, getting closer to achieving my digital nomad goal.

Now I'm here, on Wyzant, looking to help others. In the last year and a half, I've made more progress self-teaching then most people do in double that in college. When you're forced to teach yourself, it changes things, because you know the onus is on you. However, getting help from friends who became mentors in coding made a huge difference as I was able to get unstuck on problems that plagued me for hours, days and sometimes weeks. I’m here to help basic students who are just getting into programming as well as intermediate students in Python and Django. I believe what makes me different then other teachers is that I'm someone who wasn't 'supposed' to become a programmer, but I did anyways. I'm very good at self-teaching and ultimately that's how one can speed up their learning time in development as there's so much to learn and you can't just go to a class or a bootcamp and expect to learn everything in the classroom. To me, it's not about how good I am in coding, it's about how good I am at getting the knowledge I have into my student's head that counts. I strive to give my student's the best experience possible. That's where I come in.
