About Bethany
***Lessons begin the week of August 28th, 2017***

I teach piano lessons, from beginners to intermediate students. I typically book 30 minute time slots, although longer ones are available if requested. I have about 20 years of piano experience and I have either performed recitals or played accompaniment quite often throughout that time. I have taught lessons off and on throughout my time as a school teacher.

I love teaching, and I love music! If you want to improve your educational performance, you've come to the right place!

I've also just recently begun teaching online lessons as an English tutor. I've taught English grammar in a regular classroom setting, and I've also tutored one-on-one. Lessons with me are only one click away! :)

*** Lesson Details ***
Come to your lessons prepared to be busy! I do not believe
in wasting time, so lessons will start and end as promptly as possible. All students must have a willing and enthusiastic attitude! :)

After taking a year off from piano, my daughter was concerned about her skill level. Ms. Zang made her feel comfortable and provided encouragement.

Bethany had her 7 month baby next to her and the baby got fussy and it was distracting. She said that her husband was usually home by that time but he wasn't there today. I won't be happy if this happens again. I would even be willing to come later to avoid this perhaps 5:00:-6:00 pm ?
The lesson was only 40 minutes instead of the hour but hopefully because it was the first lesson.

Bethany started teaching our seven year old daughter piano lessons in our home several months ago. She is an excellent piano teacher! Bethany always comes to our house on time and she is very organized and well prepared when it comes to the lesson plan/homework materials. Most important, our daughter has learned a lot over the last several months and she really enjoys her 30 minute lesson(s) with Bethany. I would highly recommend Bethany for a teacher!

About Alexander
I've been a personal academic tutor since August of 2013 specializing in basic math, pre-algebra, algebra, and algebra 2 as well as English and German. I also love teaching music. I specialize in ukulele and guitar and have been playing guitar since I was 15 and picked up the ukulele at 18. I have experience teaching people of from 8 - 70 years old and with a wide range of backgrounds, needs, and goals.

A little about myself. I was born and raised in the Sacramento area. I have 3 younger siblings ranging from 10 to 12 years younger than me, so I have experience teaching younger children as well. One of my sisters is special needs with autism and mild CP. I understand the difficulties children with special needs can face in school especially in math and language arts. I am currently studying at Sierra college with a major in computer
science. I love teaching and learning and helping people succeed. There is no greater accomplishment than helping someone go from staring blankly at the task in front of them, to them suddenly grasping it, sharing in their success and sense of accomplishment is magical.

About Young-Ju
I was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea. I graduated with a degree in Japanese and English literature. After I graduated college, I went to take TESOL(Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) certificate. Since then, I have spent several years teaching English, Korean and Japanese and being a supervisor to several other teachers. I'm currently taking "Early Childhood Education" classes at college, and I've been working at a Early Childhood center for 1st and 2nd grade.

I have an outgoing type of personality, and enjoy teaching others to improve their knowledge of either Japanese, Korean or the English language. I also enjoy doing yoga, cooking, traveling, staying active, hiking, and also enjoy trying new things.

I like to help people learn languages faster in a fun way. So I use many different materials to boost le
arning faster. With my my extensive knowledge of the Korean and Japanese language, and Korean and Japanese culture I will be able to teach you anything and everything about Korea and Japan. I look forward to teaching you and to help you learn and improve on your goals.
Thank you!!

Excellent instructor! Young-Ju has a very solid approach that teaches new material without being overwhelming, reviews content without redundancy, and integrates native conversation for an immersive experience. I studied Japanese for years so I also really appreciate that she can relate new Korean vocabulary and expressions to already familiar Japanese equivalents. She's patient and easy to talk to, qualities you should definitely set as priority while searching out an instructor.

About Logan
I am a twenty-six year old language enthusiast with over nine years of Spanish language experience. I have had the opportunity to visit 9 countries including Spain, Peru, Colombia, and Mexico. I also lived in the Dominican Republic for 2 months teaching English.

My tutoring repertoire includes 4 years of college tutoring and 3 years as a Wyzant tutor. In addition to Spanish, I tutor both Algebra and French. When I tutor, I like to make the learning process as pain-free and enjoyable as possible. To facilitate this, I often use worksheets to get the point across. In my language classes I also tend to teach material in English first, then try to ease into speaking in the foreign language.

I hope you see me as a good fit!
