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.

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 10 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 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 subjects can be attribute
d 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.
*** PLEASE MESSAGE ME PRIOR TO SIGNING UP FOR LESSONS TO DISCUSS GOALS, ANY BACKGROUND YOU HAVE IN YOUR TOPIC, AND ARRANGE THE BEST TIME & PLACE FOR MEETING. ***
Are you looking to learn Guitar, Singing, Beatboxing or Songwriting? No matter what style you are in to, I can help you build the skills, confidence, & practice strategies to become a successful musician. Beginners, Intermediate, & Advanced all welcome!
Majoring in classical guitar performance at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts I was a part of many performance opportunities. These included solo classical guitar recitals, weekly performance class, a collaboration with the Columbia City Jazz Dance Company, and a performance at the Columbia Museum of Art to name a few. Now I frequently participate in songwriting showcases, street performances, and collaborati
ons with bands and music groups of many different genres.
In a lesson with me you will be focusing on four main areas:
1] REPERTOIRE: Songs you are working on in preparation for performance or just to play for fun! 2] MUSIC THEORY: Exercises in ear training, note-reading skills, sight-reading skills, and overall knowledge of how music works. 3] IMPROVISATION: Learn drills to improve solo skills and increase your confidence jamming with other musicians. 4] TECHNIQUE: Guitar lessons focuses on how to properly use the left and right hands in a way that that is relaxed and tension free. Voice lessons entail learning how to breath properly, prevent vocal strain, and expand your range.
In addition to instrument lessons I also provide Songwriting Lessons, Music Theory Lessons, and Music Performance Lessons for more advanced students + I teach Recording, Web Design, and Graphic Design subjects for Artists or others looking to learn how to promote themselves or their projects. (Subjects Include: Logic Pro X, WordPress, Web Design, Graphic Design, HTML, CSS, & More!)

You'll need an employee manual and clearly defined expectations.
Let's start there...
An oft-repeated phrase is "Been There, Done That." It describes my nearly 30 years of experience with computers, computer programs, websites and on the Internet ~~~ this section is about how "my experience" can serve you.
I created my first website over 25 years ago. In the 1990's, I hosted websites and email from servers in my basement. (That means I'm good at trouble-shooting and putting out fires!)
Today, I am a teacher, guide, coach, mentor, web builder, a domain registrar, and a web hosting re-seller. My latest interest is creating and showing video.
From that first day, decades ago, I've been teaching. I've taught one-on-one, taught small groups of 5-20, and addressed a full auditorium. I was an adjunct instructor for MS Office products at a community college. When I complete chapter 3 of something then I'm prepared to shar
e what I've learned in chapter one!
We will work together online, and maintain follow-up contact by phone and email.
Or, if you're in the Tampa / Clearwater / St. Petersburg (Florida) area, our first session can be held the old-fashioned way: face-to-face! (I actually prefer that.) We'll meet at a study room at a library half-way between us.
I like to use analogies, and they work best with an over-40 audience. Many millenials today have never seen a dimmer switch on a car floor or carried a digital pager.
I am available for all things computer: at home, at work, on your local network and on the Internet.
_____ PS: At the end of the last century I was assembling computers by hand, but don't tell anyone. They will want to use my trouble-shooting skills to help fix their hardware, too.
Rick was great to work with. I had specific issues I needed help with and he was able to steer me to the proper techniques and answer all my queries.

Hi, there! My name is Jean-Marc and I can't wait to meet you! I'm a software engineer. I have been teaching computer technology lessons since 2007 and have loved helping my students excel in programming, web development, and productivity programs. I went to The University of Wisconsin and earned a degree in Computer Science in 2017. My teaching style is patient, thorough and detail oriented. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!
I typically like to work with wordpress vs. html. how to get hosting, securing a domain name/(.com) and I will teach using a base of word press to create awesome websites. How to obtain images and prepare them for your website, sizing, editing images, preparing copy and buttons. On an intermediate level, I can teach things like connect your store. I can also help with setting up a store, sales buttons etc, embedding video, setting up your email account on your hosted server, using your control panel etc.
I love art and I am passionate about making things beautiful. That spills over into Graphic design, Painting and more: I have 20+ years as a graphic designer, photographer 10+ years, artist/painter. I have been instructing for over 6 years. All of my artistic positions led me to run a print shop for several years so I know what you need to prep files for printing, photography, page layout, web and much more so that your files meet industry standards. If your a fast learner, I can go at a faster pace, if you need more time, I am fine with that too. My goal is for you to learn well, advance and put the skills I teach you to use. Then we will layer that info and move on. I'll incorporate reviewing what we worked on before in the future lessons. I want you to be able to put to practice what I teach you so that you can successfully manage on
your own in that area.
I love being outside, I love the water and get inspired by nature. I am not a camping type person but could sleep outside nightly (on a screened in porch, LOL). I love to enjoy life and want you to enjoy learning something new as well.
Nicole professionally layed out, designed, and printed the obituary of my husband using Adobe Photoshop. Her helpful, yet sensitive suggestions regarding picture arrangements on the pages of the obituary were appreciated. She was timely and easy to work with. I highly recommend her as an instructor.
Online web design training that includes a PDF manual to use for future reference. You'll receive a custom url at the end of 5 lessons (url is free for 1 year and can be renewed for a one-time payment of $35 and will be good for an additional year),
I love teaching people new skills and traits. I am friendly and patient.

"Had a conversation about web design vs web dev which helped me clarify direction."
"She gave me great tips to start my blog and recognized my desire to be creative with it and pointed me in the directions to achieve that."
"Etana is absolutely a life saver!!! She has not only the knowledge but a giving attitude that no one has matched!!! She is the best I have experienced.
"Jean, thanks for teaching me. Your classes were great!"
"When our church needed a total website update and we had no one with any expertise or experience, Etana, very patiently and professionally walked us throu
gh what we needed, how it could be achieved, and ways to make it much more cost effective than the archaic experience we had before. Etana is definitely good at explaining technical information to a neophyte in a way that can be understood, and without making you feel unintelligent. She is a great tutor."
"Lily has been an absolute delight. She is always prepared and offers me homework to continue with my lessons. Highly recommend. Mike Martin"
"Larry was very helpful with my web design needs.
"This was my first lesson and it got off to a frustrating start with the electricity shutting my computer down. Jean-Marc was very patient and didn't let
any of the first time set up glitches deter him or interfere with helping me get started off on a positive note. Thank you!!"
"You'll love working with Etana! Her flair and style will help you set your business apart from the others. It is through her support and knowledge that sh
