About Linda
*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not typically provide any equipment - but I am willing to select and purchase books for the students to learn from (cost of books to be reimbursed by the student/parent) when requested to do so.

I am also willing to provide stick-on note-names for the keyboard, for young children.

The students must have their own instruments, and provide a folder for sheet music and notes/instructions.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar, I specialize in the following styles: jazz, rock, blues, folk, bluegrass, and children's songs.
Piano: I prefer electronic keyboard to acoustic piano, but am happy to teach beginning students on a regular piano as well. I teach note-reading, playing by ear, and theory, with en emphasis on rock, pop, and folk music. I include arranging, chord theory, and use of the many features of an elec
tronic keyboard, in the lessons.
Bass Guitar: I teach rock, pop, funk, and country music on bass.
Banjo: I teach bluegrass, country, and some blues and rock music. I can also teach a bit of old-timey frailing/clawhammer style.
English and Reading: I am highly qualified, to tutor/teach English (spoken, written, and reading comprehension) to both native English speakers and to those learning it as a second language.
*** I am particularly good at working with children who have a.d.h.d. and other learning disabilities!

About Daniel
818-577-7000

I'm a graduate of UCLA School of Engineering with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering. I have a passion for explaining how the physical world works through math and physics along with 9 years of tutoring experience in those subjects, test prep, and mentorship programs. The teaching strategy I believe in emphasizes subject fundamentals, a powerful and necessary tool for higher problem solving. This strategy has proven very effective regardless of the student's educational background or mental ability. Besides being knowledgeable, I am motivating, caring, and patient in guiding your student to academic success!

Executive Functioning is a separate realm that tutoring can assist in. It deals with cognitive processes including organization, time management, and study skills. Much of the difficulty students face in academic subje
cts can be attributed to the lack of executive functioning. They either cannot keep up with the pace and workload that advanced courses demand or haven't figured out the best way to study for themselves. I am able to assess a student's shortcomings and formulate a plan for higher achievement.

Math:
• Elementary • Pre-Algebra • Algebra 1 & 2 • Geometry • Pre-Calculus
• Trigonometry • AP Calculus • Applied/Business Calculus • Differential Equations

Physics:
• AP Physics 1 & 2 • College Physics

Test Prep:
• SAT I & II • ACT • ISEE • SSAT • HSPT • GRE • and more

Computers:
• MS Word • Excel • PowerPoint • Adobe Acrobat • General Windows/MAC

Mentorship:
• Grade Monitoring • Teacher Collaboration

Executive Functioning:
• Organization • Time Management • Study Skills

• Completely turned around achievement and self-confidence of mentored students
• Track record of student improvement particularly in math and physics

After reading all the glowing reviews, I decided to book a one-hour Microsoft Excel lesson with Daniel. He was 10 minutes late to the session and the the session ended up running over half an hour. In 1.5 hour, I walked away with not having any of my excel questions solved. Nice guy, but Just make sure he can assist your Microsoft Excel needs before booking a session with him.

About William
Hello everyone. I have a bachelor's degree in Vocal Performance from Valley Forge Christian College and I have been performing since I was three years old. I play several instruments and have learned the key skills needed to be a successful musician in any genre. With five years teaching experience and a willingness to learn, I have discovered new ways to help my students become better musicians. I can show you the ways to hone your skills through different drills and practice strategies. Also, I can teach you ways to keep your instrument working at top shape by keeping your physical health in good condition. I want to teach you what you want to know with a little push to expand your abilities. I can also give you great tips ln running, and help you with your biblical studies. I hope to hear from you soon.

About Luke
Hello everyone! I'm excited to be a part of this wonderful group of teachers from all around the country in order to teach students of all skill levels interested in furthering their education.

To be very brief about my knowledge and experience, virtually all of my music education has been "self taught", in the sense that I never had a formal teacher, ironic as that may be. I learned what I know from Guitar World magazine, books, experimentation, and playing with other musicians. Outside of this, I've taken many AP courses in high school in Latin, Social Studies, Music Theory, and English, with English being my planned major in college. I've tutored friends in school all my life in every school subject, and I've been teaching guitar formally for about two years now.

Obviously if you're here for anything else besides music, most of
this description won't apply to you. However, I hope that by reading on, you'll understand that the enthusiasm I have for music is the same I have for literature as well as religious studies.

*** Lesson Details ***

The main thing that I tell all of my future students is that I design a whole curriculum based around their interests. This includes not only how to actually play that particular style with your instrument of choice (though the guitar is what I play), but often times includes at least some of the history of the genre, the music theory behind each style, gear recommendations, and ultimately how you can continue to learn without needing a teacher through the use of autonomous resources; it all depends on how far you want to go. I seek to deconstruct any genre for my students so that they can grasp the style easier and, hopefully and more importantly, use the fragments to create their own work of art.

My homework looks a little similar to the homework in the “School of Rock” movie; I'll make goals for each student that I expect them to meet or preferably exceed in time for our next lesson, and I'll usually give them recommended listening material as either a goal to achieve, as personal inspiration, or simply as more influence to absorb. How high of expectations I have for a student depends on what their personal goals are.
At the end of the day, however, the most important thing to me is making the learning process fun, exciting, and dare I say unpredictable, and I want each student walking away from my lessons excited for their own musical future, whatever that may look like.

Photography is a passion of mine and I love sharing it with others. I enjoy helping others understand the art and science in photography and would be delighted to work with you.

--- REVIEWS ---
Prior students and clients have given me 5 of 5 stars in all 51 online ratings across various websites. Students have told me they appreciate the way I simplify complex topics, such as in these reviews from prior students:

Incredibly helpful
Cindy was incredibly helpful, and really went "above and beyond" in every way. She's extremely knowledgeable and did a tremendous amount of research in order to supplement her work on this job. Saved me many, many hours of potential aggravation — I will definitely continue to rely on her for expertise with all things Lightroom/Photoshop/PostProduction for photography. Highly recommended!
- Aaron S.,

Computer Challenged student gives her 5 stars plus!
Cindy was very patient and worked well with my low computer skill level. The class was very informative and fun. I believe we hit it off right away. I can't wait for my next class.
- Hope S., Snellville, GA

Very patient.
Cindy was able to untangle my Lightroom 6 update snarl with patience and humor. She has an excellent grip on the mechanics of Lightroom and communicates well. I recommend her highly.
- Elizabeth S., Middleton, MD

Excellent
Contacted Cindy a few months ago to help me to put together a slide show, clean up my photos, To say that I'm technically inept would be a compliment. At my age (you don't want to know) just about all these new programs give me the shakes. I was using a rather basic photo program and she recommend I take a look at Adobe Lightroom. I was notified that it would look a bit intimidating and was pretty aggressive. That was an understatement. Well, it's been a couple months now and I think the Adobe LR program is absolutely terrific. I've become quite proficient and the program is so inclusive that I'm sure, despite how far I've come along, it will always be able to do what I need with the help of Cindy. She has been very responsive, knowledgeable, organized and very patient. My lessons will be ongoing (every two weeks) and will build upon a strong foundation. Highly recommend Cindy.
- Tom K., Marietta, GA

--- LOCATION ---
I offer tutoring online via Skype and in person at the Alpharetta library.

--- SPECIALTIES ---

I've had coursework in History of Design and History of Art at the College of Architecture at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

I'm certified as a professional photographer by Real Estate Photographers of America and International (REPAI).

Adam Gaines is a godsend. I was really lucky to have his guidance over the years which helped my craft and dedication to the art of writing greatly. He is a proven writer with legitimate credits but also, he actually cares. He is always ready to help and takes your material seriously which is most important when you want honest feedback and guidance. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of films, screenwriting, and the industry that is both impressive and beneficial. He is a wonderful friend and mentor who will always have a great recommendation or suggestion ready for your work and/or career. Adam is an extremely open individual with an immense passion for film and the craft of screenwriting which becomes infectious. That trait is crucial since it keeps you driven to keep learning and grow. He is also an excellent conversationalist with his own voice which is truly refreshing. Highly recommend.
