Stephanie has really helped my teenage daughter learn to improve her sound, safely hit high notes and, most importantly to me, feel better about her singing. Stephanie is skilled, supportive and kind. She's great!

It was my first time taking singing lessons and Stephanie made it so much fun!!! I learned so much in my short amount of time. If I stayed in the area, I definitely would have continued lessons with her. I noticed improvements in my voice, and my bf did as well. Thanks Stephanie!

I've really grown a lot in a very short period of time working with Stephanie. I was having sore throat problems and I've corrected the way I've been singing and it's worked wonders. I'd recommend her to anyone that needs guidance.

About Michelle
Hi! I'm Michelle, a world traveler/teacher who's here to help bring her experience and energy to students back home in California. I've taught various subjects such as test prep, English, history, and languages to students all over the world, such as China, France, and Ecuador. I've worked with students of all ages and love getting to know them to help figure out how they best learn.

I love learning languages in my spare time and practicing when I can. When I'm not looking a bit silly doing that, I'm usually reading, at a baseball game, or hanging out with friends. I keep active, making sur
e to run or play a sport when I can. However, it's equally as strong as my love for foods of all kinds.

I really look forward to getting to work with you and helping you with whatever I can!

About Alexandra
Hello future student(s),
I've been teaching English and ESL since 2000. I've taught all ages from Elementary to adults. I've written a children's book and I am currently working on my second one. I enjoy making grammar, writing, speaking, and vocabulary fun and obtainable for all students!

I've taught Acting for Film & Television since 2010. My focus is on helping the student(s) to enjoy the process of learning the skills of scene-study, auditions strategies, memorization, Improv techniques, etc. to get them to raise their audition and call-back numbers or just for the joy of acting!


I love teaching and helping students find their own way down the road of 'the love of learning!'.

Alexa is a great teacher! She has taught me all about auditioning and how it works. She brought scripts to practice with each other and gave the class many tips about acting with another actor or alone in front of a camera and casting director. She's also given a lot of advice about how to start a career in acting and is very supportive. It was really fun and her class helped me figure out that I have a passion for acting. It was a remarkable experience!

About Claire
Hello, my name is Claire :) I am French and arrived in the US in August 2010 to study music. In May 2016, I graduated with a Master in Music Performance from California State University Fullerton on a full scholarship. I am currently playing in a professional clarinet quartet and I am studying with the principal clarinetist of the LA Phil. In the next five years, I am hoping to get my doctorate and teach music at the University level.

I have the experience of teaching private clarinet lessons in France since 2006 and in America since 2010 and am seeking clarinet students of every level and
age. .

I have also studied piano for a few years and have the experience of teaching private piano lessons in France and America.

Finally as I am from France, I was a French tutor at my University for 6 years and can help you learn French, get ready for exams and midterms or just do conversation if you are more advanced.

Claire is fantastic! She's great at assessing what you need and lesson planning on the spot. She breaks down the grammar in a way that is easy to understand. Can't wait to continue!

This was the best decision I have made for my music. Being able to take part in lessons about my specific instrument on an individual basis allowed for better performance in class and on auditions. The results are undeniable.
