About Victor
With a Doctor of Musical Arts from the prestigious Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, and 12 years of University music teaching, you will be hard pressed to find a more comprehensive, diverse, and qualified music teacher anywhere. Let me help you create a music lesson experience tailored to YOUR specific interests and needs! One size does NOT fit all, and I have the experience you help you reach your musical goals in a way that focuses on your strengths, while catching you up on those less-strong bits. Lessons are friendly, relaxed experiences that not only teach you to play the instrument of your choice (and the recording studio is an instrument!), but also supply you with valuable theoretical and historical context to provide a richness to your musical experience that most players never receive. Beginners to Professional, le
ssons to coaching to masterclasses, I cater to all skill levels, genres, and musical goals.

Victor is very patient, with us. He is nice and a very good teacher. We have had Victor as our teacher for about 8-9 months now and we have improved so much. FOxtrot is always on time and on a great mood. I could barely play Mary had a little lamb and now I can play Nintendo songs and play the blues.-Luke

About Erin
I carry an enthusiasm for knowledge, excitement about the "nerdy" subjects like mathematics and science, and determination to pass that on to my students. I believe in the power of positive reinforcement and prefer to educate students, whether highly gifted or experiencing significant obstacles, in a manner that will leave them not only more knowledgeable, but also more confident. I never use the same approach twice. Each session is tailored to my students' strengths and needs, filling in what is incomplete, and building upon what they already possess. I am passionate about education and the development of growing minds, and it shows in my sessions.

I have nearly 10 years total experience working as an educator. I began my experience teaching chemistry and mathematics in a classroom setting as part of a philanthropy program sponsored b
y my college, University of Southern California. I continued in the industry working for several companies such as Sylvan Learning Centers, Kaplan, TutorFind, and Club Z Tutoring. Since that time, I have continued to work privately with countless students, tailoring my lessons to students' needs and allowing our interactions to grow beyond academic instruction into academic planning, college admissions processes, and mentorship.

I specialize in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and standardized test preparation, but am also available as a general supplemental education provider for any and all subjects with which I have sufficient experience. I like to build a strong connection with my students and their parents, offering not only supplemental education, but also mentorship and academic advisement. I have worked with many families during the planning stages of transition from middle school to high school and high school to university, helping plan a solid academic structure for the student that will guarantee success.

I am available for last-minute tutoring (e.g. studying for a final exam), short-term tutoring solutions (e.g. standardized test preparation), as well as long-term instruction on a regular basis for students with ongoing needs.

We are very satisfied with Erin's services - our daughter improved her ACT score by 4 points with Erin's tutoring assistance! Erin knew how to use technology to make the online tutoring sessions as effective as though they were in person. Not only is she smart in the subject matter, she is also very personable. I would highly recommend Erin!

Dr. Dianala is a fantastic writing coach. I appreciated the guidance in developing research-based papers, including the implementation of APA 6th edition. As a college student, APA skills are very important and knowing how to apply it is critical to a successful paper. Awesome teacher/tutor/coach!

Dr. Dianala has been instrumental with helping me develop reporting documents for my church. I was impressed with her help with another church where she helped develop fliers and letters of introduction to organizations to help with the church's soup kitchen initiatives. Overall, it seems to me that Dr. Dianala can develop writing documents for any situation...She is wonderful!

I've been there: cramming for the next test, not understanding something no matter how much I study it, at times it seems hopeless. I now understand how having an effective and experienced tutor can be the key to having an approach to schooling that is both effective and satisfying for both the student and parent. I've been through it, I understand it, and now with the knowledge I have gained I have been helping people achieve their academic goals in a fun and painless way.
