I am a highly organized, outcome-driven and motivated professional musician and educator with solid experience in the classroom. For the past 25 years, I have been employed with Amati music academy and seven years on the faculty of University of St Francis. I am very comfortable with all aspects of the current music syllabus, including teaching musical concepts (such as duration, pitch, dynamics, tone color, texture and structure) as well as performance, composition. I am fully qualified, with a Bachelor of Education in Music, Double Masters in music performance and education from University of Nottingham. I am proficient in classical, jazz and Celtic fiddle violin and possess solid skills in piano (grade 8-13) Royal conservatory system. Throughout my teaching career, I have been driven to help students achieve their very best. I str
ongly believe that music has the power to change lives – to enhance the social, cultural and spiritual lives of people, and serve as a profound medium of personal expression. Professional perform experience: The Chicago, Natalie Cole, Smokey Robinson, Three tours with Moody Blues, YoYo Ma etc.... The most important thing I look for in a student is communication skills, as well as talent. I like to nurture students and help identify their individual strengths, which is a key factor in shaping a musical persona that will make its mark both on and offstage. I do not advocate a uniform technique for all students. Physical differences and learning styles are always taken into consideration. Potential is as important to me as early achievements and experience. My goal is to help students become self-sufficient, discriminating artists. I discuss practice techniques often and develop individualized scale routines. I encourage initiative and expressive musicality as well as precision. Above all, music needs to bring obvious joy to the student, regardless of the difficulties.”

Absolutely Amazing!!! She was very helpful and provided great information and knowledge. If she did not know the answer directly, she would provide resources and assistance that helped during the session to resolve the question and resources for future questions. I would definitely recommend her and also use her services again.

I have always been a self-studier in 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. This is where a tutor would come in handy.
I enjoy tutoring (doing it ever since I was in high school for my classmates) and helping other overcome problems that I have encountered myself because it enhances my own understanding and makes me happy that my self-studying is helping others. Sometimes, my students even bring up alternative ways of thinking that I have never thought of before!
I am a Civil Engineer specialized in Earthquake Engineering, but have diversified my background throughout the years (I am an avid student myself!). My teaching experience includes working as a professor at my university back at home and tutoring high school students- mainly in mathematics and physics. I have also taught Spanish to foreigners in my country. Before obtaining my degree, I worked as a computer technician and have always maintained this as a side-job and hobby. So I can also help you out if you wish to learn more about computers!
Pedro is a very thoughtful, patient and capable teacher. I am learning a lot of Spanish.
August 8, 2019
Pedro is a very good tutor. He is patient and explains the subject matter well. The student was comfortable with him and therefore was able to ask questions whenever it was needed. I appreciated Predro's schedule flexibility as well.

I had no idea how lucky I would be to find Pedro. I am an interior designer learning Autocad and having no prior experience with the program, Pedro made it totally accessible. He is a phenomenal teacher and is so kind and patient. He provides foundational rules at the beginning of each session and has clear goals mapped out for every step of the way. We have done a number of exercises that I did not think would be possible for me to accomplish at this point. I am so grateful to have found him and highly recommend him!!!!!

I have a Bachelor Of Science in Computer Science. I have been programming since high school. Learning new technologies is my passion. I am a full time software developer in my day job so I know a thing or two about programming. I have also served in the executive board of Computer Science student organization during my undergrad career where I worked with different students and professors. I am also currently pursuing a Masters in Computer Science to learn more in depth knowledge. In my free time, I learn new languages, technologies and framework. Throughout my career I have worked with many different programming languages, web development tools and frameworks. I am also a Amazon Web Services certified cloud practitioner which validates my knowledge in cloud technology which is the hottest thing in the tech domain right now. I love sharin
g knowledge because when you share, both parties get benefited. I truly believe that only by teaching one can a become a subject matter expert while helping others.
Prottoy is very knowledgeable in the areas in which he teaches. He has very good understanding of programming logic using Java. I would recommend his classes to anyone who wants to get a good understanding of Java and how to code.
August 27, 2019
Prottoy is a very knowledgeable instructor and definitely knows the material well. Being from a finance background, learning programming is important as it is the future of the industry. Learning technical skills takes some time, but Prottoy made it easier for me to grasp and explained concepts very well. Would definitely recommend to any beginner learning programming for the first time!
"Gilbert is an amazing teacher, I had the pleasure of taking multiple classes of his and each one was my most looked forward to class everyday. Gil makes l
earning fun but in the most professional way possible, he simplifies concepts for you in a way that you can grasp a lot easier and expand on your own. He is also very knowledgeable in his fields ranging from Photoshop to Maya to tons of others. Every bit of knowledge I carry with me into the real world is from Gilbert. Had it not been for his amazing teaching style I would never have landed the graphic design jobs that i did. Using his techniques I was easily able to outperform other candidates for the job and land it myself. My biggest recommendation is to TAKE GIL'S CLASSES!"

"Steve is an excellent instructor. He is patient and flexible as to what you want to learn. I'll be back for more as I advance through the application. I h
