About Kelvin

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.”

Catherine
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.

About Bill

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!

About Pedro

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 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!!!!!

About Rebecca

I am a Master's student studying Computer Science at the University of Waterloo, with a specialization in Computer Graphics. I completed my undergraduate degree in Computer Science at the same university, graduating in 2018. At my university, there is a strong focus on the fundamental mathematics underlying Computer Science - something that prepared me well for graduate studies and which I am excited to pass on to my future students.

I began programming at 15, and now have ten years of experience coding at different levels. I have years of co-operative education experience at five different companies, and have also worked as a contractor in industry. I have professional experience writing Java, academic experience writing C++ and C, and have also written applications in PhP, python, Go, C#, and bash, though I am less familiar with the p

articular syntax and libraries of those languages.

I have also worked with some interesting hardware - microprocessors, the Oculus Rift, Myo wrist bands, and more! I have a soft spot for gaming and game development, with some experience building games with Unity.

I am always looking for new projects to learn from and look forward to building awesome applications with you. :)

"This is a letter of recommendation for Katherine Veze who was been employed with the Los Angeles Unified School District’s Youth Development Program worki
ng with Traveling Enrichment. Ms.Veze’s main duties are to interact with students at various schools throughout the Los Angeles Unified School District during the after school program. She works with the multimedia group instructing students on the use of computers.

She is sympathetic to the needs of the students and offers support when possible. She works well with staff and management at the various sites and is very friendly, courteous and conscientious.

Katherine is an asset to our program and I am confident she will be an asset to any organization she is associated with, whether it is working at a school or in the work force supporting children."
