About Linda

*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not typically provide any equipment - but I am willing to select and purchase books for the students to learn from (cost of books to be reimbursed by the student/parent) when requested to do so.

I am also willing to provide stick-on note-names for the keyboard, for young children.

The students must have their own instruments, and provide a folder for sheet music and notes/instructions.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar, I specialize in the following styles: jazz, rock, blues, folk, bluegrass, and children's songs.
Piano: I prefer electronic keyboard to acoustic piano, but am happy to teach beginning students on a regular piano as well. I teach note-reading, playing by ear, and theory, with en emphasis on rock, pop, and folk music. I include arranging, chord theory, and use of the many features of an elec

tronic keyboard, in the lessons.
Bass Guitar: I teach rock, pop, funk, and country music on bass.
Banjo: I teach bluegrass, country, and some blues and rock music. I also play and teach old-timey frailing/clawhammer style.
Ukulele: I play and teach all styles of ukulele.
English and Reading: I am highly qualified to tutor/teach English (spoken, written, and reading comprehension) to both native English speakers and to those learning it as a second language.
*** I am particularly good at working with children who have a.d.h.d. and other learning disabilities!

About Joy

I am a graduate of UC San Diego (bachelor of arts, sociology) and UCLA (master of public policy). As a child of immigrant parents, I value diversity and love learning languages. I read, write and speak Spanish fluently, and have intermediate command of both Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese in reading, writing, and speech.

Photography has been one of my main areas of focus for over ten years. I am trained in both film and digital formats and specialize in demystifying the DSLR so that you gain a good understanding of manual settings and how to use each to improve your photos.

Caring, compassion, and understanding are essential for learning and I strive to do my best in these areas.

About Sebastian

I am from Colombia where I used to be both, an English and Spanish Teacher. I did it for over 15 years and thanks God I did a great job in all institutions I worked for. My accent is from Bogotá, Colombia, and I have a very learned spanish level. Many people say that in Colombia, specially in Bogotá, you will find one of the best places to learn this language as our accent is neutral. I have developed a skilled and easy technique to teach this beautiful language. On the other hand I am an artist. If you are interested in learning and getting a high and fluent spanish level, with someone who feels passion for teaching, I am the one you need.

Today was my first day and I was very impress. The teacher really cares and is very professional. He takes the time to really teach and there is no rush. I felt very comfortable, looking forward to future lessons.

Sebastián es lo mejor!!! A very knowledgeable and fun teacher that will help increase your confidence in speaking a new language. He is very organized and has a wonderful way of getting to the “root” of the problem areas that may hinder you from speaking like you’ve always wanted. He is a great teacher and a talented musician that will do everything in his power to make sure your language needs are not only met, but exceeded. Gracias Sebastián!

Learn Hiragana and Katakana With Japanese Calligraphy

Japanese uses more than one syllabary. A syllabary is a group of syllables that make up different words. Think of it more like a phonics system. The difference between t …
