Award-Winning Teacher - Learn To Read Quickly and Accurately.

Teaching Reading is one of my specialties..

About Matthew
Hi.. My name is Matt. I'm a very energetic, friendly, understanding & passionate music coach who has worked with students & clientele throughout the US. Possessing more than 30 years of music training & music industry experience, I've been able to take people's Playing to amazing levels.

I've networked or shared the stage with many famous NW music legends:
1.) Roger Fisher- Heart-2013 Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame Inductee
2.) 2019 - I'm the Pacific NW Guitarist for Rudy Parris from NBC TV's "The Voice!" - Go Team Blake!
3.) Lynn Sorensen- Paul Rogers/Bad Co/KZOK's Spike & Impalers
4.) Donny Evola - Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche/Foghat
5.) Jeff Kathan- Paul Rogers/Bad Company/Montrose
6.) Doug Mcgrew- Geoff Tate/Former Queensryche Singer/Operation Mindcrime

In fact everyone I've mentioned above are pro all the way and great guy
s as well. I"m honored to have played with them.

I challenge my students to view music more than just as a "skill", but also a tool to communicate effectively and to combat life's obstacles.

I have had many guitar teachers myself including one true Famous Rock Star legend here in Pacific NW. Congrats Rog. U Earned It, & inspire myself, & others everyday.

You got to know the rules 1st, before you can then break the rules. This is how you develop your own unique style. And it's what separates the Pro Players from the rest of the pack.

But even if you don't want to play professionally, maybe you just want to learn a few chords, licks, songs, for yourself, or to impress friends. That's okay too!

I welcome every level and style. I always learn something from my students.
That's what music is all about. Learning & trading tips and licks from other musicians.

Bottom Line Is... I can help you learn and progress on your instrument faster...

Let me be the Music Coach to get you there!

*** Lesson Details ***
The most important thing in a lesson with me is to learn while having FUN! I am a very laid-back teacher who wants to focus on music making you smile. We will choose material and a pace of learning that will keep you excited to rehearse and return the following lesson improved!

PERSONALIZE your guitar lessons by learning techniques used by your favorite artists in "their" songs.
FEEL FREE learning in a comfortable atmosphere where you can excel successfully as a musician!
CONQUER shyness and insecurities by unleashing the dynamic performer in you!

Most All Styles/Genres/Experience Levels Taught - We go over everything systematically. Music Theory, Songwriting, Chords, Scales, Determining Key Of Songs, Performance, etc

After 3 to 6 months, you should expect to be playing some of your favorite songs and artists accurately

Be sure to check out some of my you tube demos. Let me be the Music Coach to get you there!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a Sound Proof Pro Recording Studio, PA System, guitars, basses, amps, drums, recording gear, mics, mic stands, strobe & lights, fog machine, seating for parents.

Sorry No Disco Ball Yet.. You Can Bring Your Own If You Want Though.
I've Got Some Bell Bottoms Somewhere Around The Studio Here.

*** Travel Equipment ***

I'm really excited to add that to offer lessons online through TakeLessons! It's a great thing to get to work with students all over this country and I'm looking forward to help pioneer the future of music lessons!

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.

My Unique Specialty - is teaching students the rudimental basics 1st, & then how to copy your favorite artists off the CD, radio or iPod, almost note for note. Believe me, it can be done. You just have to know what to listen for..

Brand New - MEASURE your success by recording your music progress along the way. I do own a recording studio, so we can record students progress via audio or video and then post to my You Tube channel.

Summer time is approaching...... how can you keep your child from loosing all they learned over the school year? I am here to help! I am a teacher and this summer (as well as the school year) I am offering reading classes to advance your readers and get them ready for the next year.

About Josh
Hi everyone! My name is Josh and I am an actor, author, and artist currently living in Manhattan. I love working with kids and adults alike and am looking to do whatever I can to help YOU improve on whatever you need help with.

I majored in Music Theatre in college and have worked professionally as an actor in multiple capacities. I am also the self-published author of a YA sci-fi novel called CyberWorld: The Legend of Alaxeria, now available as an ebook at Amazon and BN.com. My greatest passions include acting, film, writing, theatre, cooking, photography, singing, literature, traveling, and spending as much time as possible with my friends and family.

When it comes to tutoring, there is a broad spectrum of subjects that I feel equipped to teach and teach well: English, writing, essay writing, creative writing, acting, improvisat
ion, actor's repertoire, Music Theatre, acting as a business, character acting, and many more. Additionally, I often operate as an unofficial life coach and creativity coach and am more than willing to apply this to our sessions as well or create entire sessions around one or both of these ideas at your request.

I have a very flexible schedule and rates. If you are interested in working with a passionate individual who will give you 110% every time, then I'm your guy! I'm one of those rare few who cares very deeply about what you take out of our time together. I will not waste your time if you do not waste mine. I also expect a lot because I have a lot to offer. I would never continue teaching you if I felt that you were not ready to advance to the next level; likewise, I would not let you settle for anything less than your absolute best work. I am a perfectionist myself and will demand the absolute most out of you in our time together (but don't worry, I'm very friendly!). If you're worried about tutoring being too expensive, don't be, we can talk about it and come up with something that works for both of us. I'm very laid back and want to make this work for you. I also promise that when we do come up with an agreement, I will make every penny count!

Other things you should probably know about me include my love for chocolate brownie ice cream and my celebrity obsession with Rachel McAdams. When I'm not penning my latest novel, I'm usually journaling, taking in a film, going over my audition materials, or binge-watching something on Netflix.

You can learn to read fluently and to increase your comprehension.
Reading has always been one of my favorite things. It can take you to different worlds and through time. It can open the doors to learning and introduce you to characters that soon feel almost real, like new friends. I look forward to hearing from you. If you want classes in the Manhattan Beach library, let me know, and give me some time, so I can schedule a room there in advance.

Hello,

With over 8 years experience in tutoring, I have learned what methods work and those that don’t. I’m upbeat, patient, easy going, empathetic, and generally well-liked by others. I’m very good at adapting to different learning styles and have a knack for eliciting the best out of my students through motivation and positive reinforcement.

Throughout university, and after, I mentored many students with great results. In addition to academics I helped them get the most out of their college experience. Everyone I helped benefited greatly, and one runs a very successful consulting business.

Aside from math and English, I’m a very proficient test and note taker. I speak conversational Spanish, and basic Japanese.

About Mitch
Whether you're completely lost, just need a little help, or need some test/note taking tips I can be very helpful. My patient, easy going, and positive mindset is very conducive to creating a great learning atmosphere. I can also be very useful to those that aren't motivated, I have a knack for finding the source of motivation for others.

Are you frustrated with the college application process? I can assist in this area and in aclimating to college environment. I've mentored many students through college, with great success.

Hope to work with you soon.

Hello, nice to meet you! My name is Fauzia.
I received a BA in English from Smith College with a minor in Government. I also have an M.P.A. in Public Administration from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I am excellent in all aspects of English - language, literature - from reading comprehension, vocabulary, essay editing and proofreading to writing. During the past year, I helped several elementary school students with their reading comprehension. One third grader went from under 50% to the honor roll. I discovered many valuable teaching tools for this purpose, such as Readworks. I would be glad to share the positive feedback I have received. I would love to meet you in person!

About Fauzia
I have a master’s degree in Public Administration from the University of Massachusetts. My BA was in English from Smith College with a minor in Government. I am certified in TESOL.
I tutor students at home, in libraries or other public places, and online. I can provide a background check done by Checkr on Sept 4, 2018.
I have been tutoring for about a year now with Varsity Tutors. I have taught reading and comprehension. I do math up to third grade. I also have experience in prepping students for the English evidence-based reading and writing part of the SAT/ACT. With older students, I work best in English and Social Science.
I am approved to tutor in 20 subjects and received high scores in these areas.
I am excellent in all aspects of English - language, literature - from reading comprehension, vocabulary, essay editing and proofre
ading to writing. I also am knowledgeable in government and history - American, European and World. I am very aware of current events and how they relate to academics and the patterns of the past.
Since I began tutoring, I have explored many educational resources available online to help students. As part of my continuing education, I am working on how to best use them in my lessons. I have subscribed to at least 16 different web sites (ex. Quizlet, Readworks, etc.) at my own expense to continually improve my skills. I go over and above to find materials that helps my students. I am also a member of the National Tutoring Association.
I try to make difficult subjects accessible, easier to understand, and even fun. I do my best to always be positive, patient and supportive of the student’s challenges and efforts. This is the background of my teaching style.
I would work with the student’s existing curriculum and help them with their assignments. I strive to go beyond with related subject matter to further expand their knowledge, ease, and grasp. I design lesson plans tailored to their specific needs and likes – everyone is different. I strongly believe that teaching is best-done one-on-one and facilitated by conversation - where the student and I work as a team. I have worked with students in all levels – elementary, middle and high school.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. Please feel free to ask any questions.

I love reading and want to continue to share the joy and fun it brings.

About Shelley
Teaching for the past 10 years has brought joy fun and experience. I love sharing my passion for reading and literacy with students through a variety of techniques. I love to apply things from now (today's song hits, current events, trends, etc) in to what I'm teaching.

I am a mom of four small boys all under 2nd grade. I love theater, movies, running outdoors, reading, and teaching. I am a positive person who aims to find the GOOD in ALL.

Everyone CAN learn. It's not about being the best... It's about doing your best. You may not know something NOW but you will if you keep your mind to it. The work you put in to something, always pays off.
