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.”

About Chef Stevie
I graduated culinary school in 1996 and I have an AS in Culinary Arts and Restaurant management. My mother was a cook for Marriott and some of my fondest memories were spending time in that kitchen with her.

I loved culinary school, I love food and fresh ingredients. I grow my own veggies and herbs. I love creating great dishes and exploring the possibilities of simple ingredients.

I've taught community cooking demos, in home lessons and group demos. I've also worked as a private chef. Over my twenty years in this business; I've worked at a 4 Star Restaurant, as an Executive Chef at a major hotel chain as well as in a Molecular Gastronomy Kitchen. My skills are very diverse.

Emily's teaching exceeded all my expectations for the four lessons she gave me on healthy cooking. She arrived punctually, well-prepared, and brimming with cheerful, well-informed advice that allowed me to gain far more confidence with my efforts in the kitchen! I highly recommend her!

About Lorena
Ciao! I am a native Italian living in the USA for several years now.
My background is in foreign languages and I love traveling and meeting new people. I studied English and French in Italy before spending two years in England working and studying to perfectionate English where I also learned conversational Spanish.
Once in the USA I started working in the information technology field for a company that had a branch in Italy. I had to assist, translate and teach different materials in Italian and I also did some freelancing tutoring.
I have three children and I also speak and teach Italian to them only. It has been fun to see them being comfortable in speaking Italian when we go to Italy. I try to travel to Italy at least once a year.

My other passion is cooking and baking. I was lucky that I grow up with both my parents
as excellent cooks. We had a vegetable garden, fruit trees and livestocks so most of the ingredients were fresh. I started cooking a lot when I moved to USA as I missed the Italian dishes very much and I realized my only connection to my country was via the food.

I also have a love for fashion! Growing up in Italy means being surrounded by beauty everywhere.. the marvelous architecture and art, the language and music, the beautiful landscapes, the fruits of nature and the fashion! I believe because of this most Italians develop a sense of style. When I moved here I realized how much harder was to find unique clothes and accessories so I enjoy the challenge to put together outfits with what I have available.

After you have experienced a cooking lesson with Lorena you will feel like you have visited Venice Italy.
Her birth place. Lorena will share simple, healthy recipes you will use for a lifetime. I learned so much from her and I'm already a glorified chef. Her signature dishes with all the Venetian secrets can be revealed in her kitchen or yours. She's a very good listener and will adapt to what your family likes to eat. I will continue my lessons after the New Year... wanting to pare wine with the food . Another hidden talent .thank you Lorena

About Uzma
I achieved my Juris Doctor at California Western School of Law in April of 2016, but a traditional law career is not one that I envision for myself. I want a career that is meaningful, gives me purpose, and has a positive effect on other people's lives. Prior to law school, I honed my writing and editing skills and worked full-time as a certified teacher. I worked on creating school curriculums for school districts in the United States. The more work I do, the more solidified my goal to help anyone in whatever capacity I can.

My past students are from different corners of the world, age groups, generations, and lifestyles. It was a pleasure helping them navigate the complex rules of the English language.

In my free time, I enjoy creative writing, journalism, and yoga. My poems have been published in books, my news articles published b
y various news outlets.

I want to live a life that shares my skills with others. I know I am lucky to have such a strong language background, and I firmly believe I am meant to share this with others.

Let me know what your language goals are, and I can create a specific curriculum to make sure you achieve those goals.

I started working in a restaurant when I was 14, I fell in love with it! I have since completed Culinary School, worked at a variety of restaurants in different positions. I ran my own small catering company, Now We're Cookin' for a number of years. I opened a restaurant in 2017, Rendezvous Bistro, though successful, it was too much of a strain on my family. However, I was left with the urge to cook & share my love of food with others. I hope to share that with you!

I enjoy scratch cooking & baking, I love trying new dishes or recreating restaurant favorites.

Indian dish can be time consuming. I am hoping you know which style you want to learn. Either you are learning everyday style cooking which is simpler than party /restaurant style. This makes a lot of difference in time taken in preparation.
