Working professional in the quant finance/trading industry with a Bachelor's degree in actuarial science (business/math). I will provide the perfect balance between academic theory and actual practice in the industry.

I also have 10 years of tutoring experience to both children and adults alike.

I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My rates is for a one-off session, so it is extremely negotiable if we work together regularly.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have. However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. Or maybe the teacher/professor is not the best

I am trained in Russian technique using relaxation movements that prevent painful cramps in wrist and forearm. I have been teaching primarily children from age 4 in music schools and homes since 1987. I like to motivate them by letting them choose their favorites, like songs from Disney movies or some other popular songs. I am very patient and encouraging. I am happy when I see love for music growing in hearts of students.

About Katarina

I attended six years at State Conservatory and graduated with Magister degree from Comenius University in former Czechoslovakia. I performed during my college years with a chamber vocal-instrumental ensemble. I started teaching piano and music theory in 1987 at a music school and later I was giving

Kyle Mitchell
Ms. Lalinska has been a great teacher! I'm pretty new to piano and she's been nothing but patient throughout our lessons. I've found that after learning some basic music theory on chords I'm all the more interested in improving. She has also been flexible in scheduling, which is particularly important due to my shifting schedule. Highly recommend!
Tomas Kratka
Katarina has been a fantastic teacher, helping me get to learn the basics of piano while teaching me how to play with a relaxed technique to preserve my hands and forearms -- I work on a computer all day so I will sometimes get cramped hands.
Jessica
Katarina is very knowledgeable about piano and theory, having studied and taught for many years. She uses the Russian technique and teaches excellent technical skill. She is patient and fair, and above all, a wonderful teacher!!

It is also obvious that Robert is - at the end of it all - a really good person who is enjoyable to spend time with while learning about both language and culture."
