About Sheila
I have earned a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of Redlands. As a professional singer, I have performed in numerous concerts and operas. I've sung in both choral and solo settings, as well as fully staged productions. Throughout my education, I have played piano and even participated in Certificate of Merit testing. These experiences have all helped shape me into a well rounded singer.

In lessons, I devote equal amounts of time to technique and repertoire. We will always begin by warming up, and working on some exercises. Then we will implement your new tec
hniques into your repertoire, which I will tailor to your specific needs and wants.

Above all, though, I want to help you realize your dreams as a musician! Looking forward to getting started!

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice: I believe technique comes first and foremost, because it will free you to give everything you've got in performance! We will work on breath support, tone quality and proper placement, and then sing through your repertoire to put these techniques into practice.

Piano: Learning music theory goes hand in hand with playing piano. As you play your pieces, we will also explore the fundamental concepts of music theory (basic rhythm, treble and bass clef, major and minor), giving you a well rounded approach to mastering the piano. These skills will take you a long way in your musical path!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Yamaha Upright piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
Stickers for little ones! I also bring repertoire books to share with my students.

*** Specialties ***
Classical singing technique, applicable to all styles of singing

About Regina
At the age of fifteen, Ms. Regina graduated with honors from the Z. Paliashvili Special Music Gymnasium for Gifted Children in Tbilisi, Georgia. As a student of a famous Georgian pianist, Tengiz Amirejibi, she presented her country in numerous competitions. (Tengiz Amirejibi was a student of Heinrich Neuhaus, a famous Russian teacher and pianist.)

As a child, Ms. Regina gave many solo recitals and concerts with the Georgian Symphonic Orchestra. Ms. Regina earned her Doctorate of Musical Arts with emphasis on Advanced Piano Performance from the Yerevan State Conservatory. After graduating,
she worked with talented children in her alma mater for many years. Later in her professional career, Ms. Regina taught at the Tbilisi State Conservatory as well as the Moscow Music Gymnasium.

With more than eighteen years of professional teaching experience, Ms. Regina is able to offer her students a diverse range of educational resources. She specializes in teaching piano, performance, and music theory to students of all ages and levels.

Ms. Regina's teaching techniques are based on a combination of the famous Russian Music School (based on music giants such as Konstantin Igumnov, Daniel Barenboim, and Heinrich Neuhaus) and the American Music Education System. This combination allows each student to work at a pace comfortable for him/her, and helps all students make significant progress in the areas of sight reading, ear training, and performance skills.

***Teaching Schedule***
Ms. Regina teaches in her Glendale studio and the surrounding areas every day of the week except for Saturdays. She teaches in her Orange County studio located in Fountain Valley on Saturdays.

***Travel Area and Special Rates***
If the system shows that your location is out of my travel area, please contact me by messaging through TakeLessons! Also feel free to inquire for discounts for siblings!

***Online Classes***
I have gotten many questions regarding whether I teach online piano lessons. Due to the nuances associated with this subject, it is crucial for the student to take lessons face-to-face. It is extremely important to learn and get used to the correct hand positions for all students; otherwise, problems with playing harder pieces will inevitably arise. I feel that students taking online piano lessons truly do not get all the benefits of taking the lessons face-to-face. Please don't hesitate to email me if you have any other questions or concerns!

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.

About Tatiana
I am a former German professor from Russia who currently lives in America and tutors full time now Russian and German.

I provide a variety of activities for my lessons so you will never get bored. For example, I will use games, interactive conversational lessons, fun warm up tasks, case studies, and even riddles. We will use authentic materials as well. You will learn conversational skills, formal writing skills, and test taking strategies all in a fun manner.

I have a background as as an experienced lecturer, teacher, and tutor in the field of linguistics (general linguistics, history o
f linguistics, psycolinguistics, social linguistics, gender studies). Since defending my dissertation, I have continued to do research in gender studies in the field of virtual communication and digital text, especially non-verbal communication, social networks and gender-specific communication. However, I have found that my true passion is helping students in one-on-one lessons.
