About Paul
While attending the University of Southern California, where I received my M.F.A., I worked as a writing tutor in the USC Writing Center and also taught Classical Greek Mythology. After graduation, I taught Verbal, Writing and Literature SAT classes and worked as a private tutor in a variety of subjects.

I later taught for five years at the New York Film Academy in Universal City, CA, where I taught a variety of Critical Studies classes to various levels of students, some in certificate programs and others working towards their M.F.A.

As a former English and Spanish double major, I have always enjoyed teaching at various levels. Most of my other work these days involves the writing and editing of short stories, screenplays and novels.

You’ll find that I have the education, background and experience to be an excellent instruct
or for your needs.

Paul was my favorite teacher at the New York Film Academy.
Unlike most of the teachers, Mr. Paul put a lot of effort and creativity into planning his classes, which made them both stimulating and fun for us.
I also loved the fact that Mr. Paul always respected our opinions, and never made us feel stupid when we didn’t understand something. He was always very encouraging and willing to keep explaining until we got it.

I highly recommend him to anyone interested in extra lessons. He is definitely worth it!

I came to Kaycee as a total beginner to drawing, and she has walked me through the process step-by-step which is exactly what I need! Great at explaining techniques and why we are doing things to our drawings. I am excited to be gaining knowledge from the ground up and watching it come to fruition.

Blake is a great teacher. He made me so determined to learn more and to get better in my craft. I started to become excited and always looked forward till our next lesson because I knew I would come out knowing way more than I did before. If you are unsure and/or new to this, I would 100% recommend Blake!

Blake is kind and courteous and the lessons were individualized and geared to meet my needs. Blake met my expectations in teaching the functionality of a new program, and he gave me guidance designing. The lessons are easy to schedule and cancel if necessary.

About Janis
Hi there! I'm Janis, a recent graduate from the University of Southern California. While at USC, I studied neuroscience, but beyond my science curriculum, I took many literature and music classes.
I love learning about all types of topics and people, and I want to bring this energy to my students. From a very young age, I have loved creating lesson plans for my younger siblings. This developed into more formal tutoring and mentoring roles through middle school, high school, and college.
I have experience teaching everything from beginner piano to young children, to science presentation skills to international teaching assistants.
Using passion, compassion, and a positive energy, I would love to help you achieve your learning goals! :)

Our 5 y.o. daughter just took her first lesson with Janis and she much enjoyed the lesson. Our daughter is excited to learn to play the piano and Janis made the lesson fun and enjoyable. Our daughter is off to an excellent start with Janis. Janis left homework for our daughter until she returns for the next lesson. We are very pleased with Janis. She is very pleasant and patient and our daughter much enjoys her company.

We moved recently to LA from London and Janis is a fantastic teacher. My two boys are very much enjoying their lessons now and even practice without me having to ask. She discovered how best to motivate each child and customized her approach. Janis is much better than the previous two teachers in London.
