Alexandra L.

Azusa, CA

About Alexandra

With a degree in Voice studies from the Los Angeles College of Music, and 15 years of coaching, I am able to give my students the understanding of the voice as an instrument and the importance of practicing to acquire the skills that are required to maintain longevity as a singer.

During the lesson the student will also learn to interpret and perform songs in any style they choose to work on.

*** Travel Equipment ***
i can provide the keyboard when giving singing lessons.

*** Specialties ***
The method that I use is called "Freedom of natural voice production". It's a method that t
eaches the student to get rid of all the tension, bad habits, beliefs that stand in the way of the tone. This freedom allows the tone to come freely from our diaphragm, through the cords up to the head. In this method we use the air as a second element, that vibrates the vocal cords and resonates them in the head.

I have taught Jazz, Latin, R&B styles.

Yanshao L.

La Puente, CA

About Yanshao

Hi, my name is Yan. I'm a full-time math & Chinese tutor.

I'm patient and good at explaining in ways that suits the student's style of understanding. I'm passionate about what I do and in my heart's heart, I believe everyone can thrive in math if given the right guidance and everyone can learn to speak Chinese despite it being conceived as a difficult language.

For math:
1. I have a Bachelor's in Math and have had 16 years of experience working with students from high school and college as well as adult learners, in one-on-one, small groups and medium classroom settings.
2. I am fa
miliar with the methods common core uses and also WHAT MAKES ME STAND OUT IS THE SIMPLE AND EFFECTIVE WAYS (CALL THEM TRICKS IF YOU MAY) TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMS THAT ALWAYS MADE MY STUDENTS' WONDER WHY THEIR SCHOOL DIDN'T TEACH THEM IN THAT WAY.
3. Subjects I tutor in:
Algebra 1 & 2, pre-calculus. College-level math: from basic math to pre-calculus.
Test prep: Math in SAT/SAT Subject I & II/GED, placement and assessment tests.

What to expect from my math sessions:
Besides the familiarity I have with the materials from the 16 years of tutoring experience, I always ask for a copy of the specific materials (lectures, notes and homework) that we need for a particular session from the students beforehand and I thoroughly preview before I get to a session. I always tailor the sessions according to the student's specific needs, usually combining explanations of the concepts and supervised exercises together.I make sure the goals for the sessions are accomplished.

For students who have anxiety or who don't have confidence when it comes to math:
I'll show the students how to dissect a math problem and solve it step by step. Once the student sees how it's manageable with each simple step, he or she will gain confidence in their math skills and therefore reducing their anxiety around math.

For Chinese:
1. I'm a native speaker and have had 16 years of experience of teaching/tutoring Chinese from young children to adults one-on-one and in small classroom settings.
2. Subjects I cover:
Young children (3-5) beginner, all age groups from 6 to adult, beginner & intermediate.
Test Prep: HSK, SAT Chinese, AP Chinese.
Business, travel, conversational, culture.
Pinyin, Grammar, Listening, Writing, Reading, Typing.
Simplified & Traditional.

What to expect from my Chinese sessions:
I cater my classes to the students' specific needs. With young kids, I utilize Chinese songs, games, apps to keep students engaged. With older students and adult learners, I explain things more logically, giving the roots of how words and sentence structures have come about. I always include culture tidbits in the lessons as understanding the culture is an essential part of understanding the language and vice versa.

I also work with students for test preps in HSK, SAT Chinese and AP Chinese.

And I emphasize on drilling students to have correct pronunciations from the beginning and on developing their abilities to make sentences on their own by utilizing the material taught in the lessons right away.

If I sound like a good match to you and your children, please don't hesitate to send me a message today and let the improvements on your grades and confidence grow today!

Cancellation Policy:
If you can't make it to a session, whether it's to cancel or reschedule, please give me a 24 hour notice to avoid any fee.
Any notification given within 24 hours of the session or no-show is subject to a fee of the full amount of the scheduled session. (eg. if you booked one hour, the fee is the hourly rate; if you booked 2 hours, the fee is the hourly rate *2).

My shy but bright 13 yr old daughter needed a tutor for Chinese and Algebra. She had been out of school for medical reasons. Yanshao was excellent with her. She helped my daughter catch up within a few lessons. She was knowledgable but gentle and my daughter enjoyed working with her. We will be continuing to use Yanshao's tutoring services for both algebra and chinese.

I have taken lessons with Ronald since I was 6, I am now 23. In my 17 years of taking lessons I have learned to play piano, sing and am proficient in music theory. In the more recent years I have even had the opportunity to teach music through Ronald. Throughout the years, I have experienced and witnessed the patience and kindness Ronald consistently shows his students. He encourages his students to become better and shares in their enthusiasm due to their accomplishments. Ronald genuinely cares about his students and is dedicated to making sure his students improve. I fully recommend Ronald for students who have parents who want to be involved in the learning process and especially for young children who are just starting out. Ronald works well with families, includes parents every step of the way and is very patient with young students helping them learn in an open and encouraging environment.

Mr.Chaz is really dedicated to his profession. He started to teach my seven year old son over one year ago and he has motivated him to sing his best and he started piano with him last year which has been a phenomenal experience for my son. Chaz really focuses on the detail, theory and groundwork necessary to excel in music. If you are lucky enough to get your child started with him you will never regret the experience. He is simply the best! My son sings all the time now and loves to play piano. I am so happy for my son to have found someone to expand on his talents!
