Collins had his first cello lesson with Christien today. He love it! Christien is super patient and very very professional. She corrected Collins' posture and the way to hold the bow. Christine gave very clear instruction, and made the lesson lot of fun.

Jeremy sings and plays the flute in our church choir. He has proved himself to be the ultimate musician. Always amazed by his great skill and talent in enhancing our sound. He would certainly have much to offer the up and coming flutist.
Jann-Marie
I was one of Jeremy's first students. My parents were forcing me to pick up music as a hobby and i was very hesitant because it seemed tedious to me. My mom then heard about Jeremy from her friend and asked if he was willing to teach me. He was very patient as i admit i was not the best student, but he stuck with me and now i am taking auditions to play for an orchestra as a principal flute player. I will always be grateful to him for getting me to love and enjoy music as i was against it in the beginning, I would recommend that everyone make him your teacher, he really is awesome! Love ya teach!
Giselle
As a teacher myself, I find Jeremy-Paul's tutoring service is to recommended as he is very patient and understands the student's capability. As a new learner, he has really given me an excellent start. He makes his lessons interesting and demands a high level of expectations. He is very passionate about his craft and is very enthusiac about engaging his students.

Tell your story. Discover your voice.
Public Speaking • Creative Writing • Songwriting

I have been a nationally touring public speaker for over 15 years. NPR's Here & Now described me as "Writing and singing full-frontal." I am a singer-songwriter (folk layered with classic rock). The Pasadena Weekly described my the experiences I create as “Shaped by emotion, confidence and shared vulnerability ...more than a show—giving listeners a sense of uplift.” People leave my shows, my lectures feeling a deeper connection with themselves which inspires them to engage the world in creative and exciting ways.

In our Public Speaking lessons, I will teach you how to create a memorable experience for your audiences, and to have a blast doing it. I will help you feel natural in front of an audience by trusting that who you are is the most important thing. They will hear who you are, as much as what you say. Being yourself is key. I will show you how to shine!

Whatever topic you want to

About Licity

I love relating to all kinds of people. People love to tell me their stories and I love to hear them. I help you hear your story and then tell your own stories through song, writing, and speaking. I believe that creativity is a path to healing and must involve a deep connection to our emotions.

Do you want to learn how to put your feelings into words and sounds? To stand before an audience, undaunted, and share them with the world, warts and all? I know of no one who can show you the way better than Licity. And moreover, she will give you honest, helpful, heartfelt feedback that will most certainly guide you in the direction you were already headed, even if you didn't recognize it yourself. She is a wise and crafty wordsmith, with an amazing depth of feeling. Your time spent learning from her will push your creativity to a new level. I know this firsthand. 5 stars!

I really enjoyed lessons with Emilie! She is well organized and has a clear lesson plan for each session, with follow up homework and exercises. I learned so much about technique and the "how to" of drawing. Everything she put together was appropriate for my level and included exercises that challenged me to improve. I could tell Emilie is well trained and skilled at drawing. She is also very nice and I felt relaxed and comfortable with her. Her studio is warm and inviting. Overall it was a great experience and I am looking forward to taking some additional lessons with Emilie!
Ava C.
So happy to have found Emilie! I work for a family with a four year old child who is extremely engaged in art and we wanted to find private lessons for her. Emilie has been extremely accommodating and very intentional in making sure we were ready for our first lesson. Will be scheduling more lessons and look forward to her being apart of my charges explorative learning!

I was not confident and constantly struggled in responding to the test questions because I was not sure of concepts. Rod explained me concepts step by step in a very simple way also, by drawing the graphs and that everything was clear for me as visual person. He was able to answered and explained all my questions that I was well prepared and confident on my final exam. Thanks to him I gained the necessary knowledge and I ended with "A"."

"My family and I appreciate Natalie so much. I recently PASSED my Reading (Score:44) and Math (Score:52) section in the CBEST exam!!! She has been very patient with me throughout the entire process of reviewing for my CBEST exam. She has helped and guided me all the way. She has provided me excellent materials that I used to help me review for my exam. The first time I took the test, I did not pass, so Natalie provided me additional exercises on material covered between sessions; it is an added plus and surely accelerated my overall progress. She would always remind me to always take my time, read the test questions carefully and double check my answers! During the exam I did exactly what she said and it worked!!! Everything that was on the CBEST exam are the ones we reviewed together. Natalie, you are just THE best - thank you so much for all that you did for me! I will miss our review sessions! I highly recommend her - anyone who would hire her will be in great hands!"
