James and I worked together for 4 months at an elementary school tutoring 3-5 graders in math and english. James is professional, intelligent, and creative. It was a pleasure working with him. He cares very much for the youth in our community.
We've stayed in touch via email and are developing a friendship I hope lasts a life time. He is good people.

About Warinya
Hello!
I am a recent graduate from University of California, Berkeley, majoring in Legal Studies and Political Economy minor. Teaching has always been my favorite thing to do! It feels great to share knowledge, techniques and skills on a particular subject and even better when the students can use it for their school and/or career advancement.
I started teaching in 2008 in Bangkok, Thailand. My first job was an English tutor for Thai students (part time) while attending the final year of high school. After I have moved to the US, whenever I have time, I always accept teaching jobs, mostly r
eferrals from my friends or friend of friends.

Warinya is a great piano teacher for my three kids (ages 5 to 8) They love her and enjoy her classes. She has developed a good incentive system that keeps the kids focused and motivated. All are progressing at their own pace. I'm very happy.

About Jasmine
Hi. My name is Jasmine and I am thrilled to be able to teach Mandarin Chinese. I have spent 10 years of my childhood in Beijing, China, and am capable of teaching conversational Chinese - speak, listen, read, and write.

I am absolutely friendly, responsible, passionate, and motivated. Please reach out if you're looking to learn some authentic tasting of the Chinese language and culture!

I hope to build the passion in learning Mandarin Chinese in my students, while they will encourage me to teach better every day.

Wonderful person and FANTASTIC teacher. Quick to correct pronunciation and even more quick to complement and encourage. I was very lucky to pick Jasmine - a very up-beat personality. By the way, her English grammar is perfect.

The lesson went well. I did not expect much with the first one since we need to get to know each other and understand what exactly I am looking to learn. She was encouraging and upbeat which made the experience enjoyable. Of course, the real test is what I learned. I spoke just now with a work colleague from China on We Chat and went over what Jasmine had taught me. He noticed a big improvement in my pronunciation today compared to how it was just a few weeks ago on my most recent trip to China.

About Sebastian
Hi! I'm offering guitar, ukulele and italian classes. I'm Italian, born and raised but I've lived in California for 6 months. I've been playing guitar for 12 years and ukulele for about 5. The genre of music I mostly play and could teach you is jazz, but I could also teach many other things from basic song learning, theory, music reading, some world music such as choro or flamenco. The same goes for the ukulele! As for Italian, it's my first language and I could teach a lot, from basic grammar to specific terminology. I've been giving guitar lessons for quite a few years and when I lived in I
taly I taught english as well. If you're interested call me!
