Mrs. Jen has been a violin teacher for our daughter for 3.5 years. She is an extremely qualified and talented musician who deeply cares about her students and is committed to teaching. She is kind and patient, but also effective and motivating. When our 8 year old daughter learned Mrs. Jen was moving she said, "I probably will never have as neat or special of a violin teacher as Mrs. Jen"- and she's right!

First lesson was fine. We took a few minutes to find each other in a cafe setting but as it was also a meet and greet session I wasn't too concerned about time. As it turns out Beth more than made up the time. She's very pleasant and easy to speak with. We went over my goals, simple traveler type words, phrases and questions, and a work schedule to cover the next several weeks. Beth told me how she was going to approach teaching me after listening to my goals. I'm looking forward to the next session where we can focus on learning the language.

This is the first time I take on learning Korean. I searched for a lot of information trying to find instructors in my area and online. I came across take lessons online and was still unsure weather to sign up or not. So, they had profiles on the instructors that were available to teach. All these instructors have wonderful qualifications but my concern was finding an instructor that was available on my one day off. Very grateful that Mr. Seongmo was available and accepted me as his student. Korean is different from other other languages that I have taken. Mr. Seongmo is very patient with me, very encouraging and challenges me at the same time. If you are thinking of learning Korean, I recommend Mr. Seongmo!

About Clarissa
I focus on the student. My approach and materials will vary depending on the progress, past experience and interests of the student. I want her or him to want to learn.My hobbies include backpacking, hiking, travel, reading, and language learning.

I am working on my Masters in Secondary English and currently hold an Associates in ECE, this combined with my extensive experience with the AP system and the time that I lived in and attended université in France make me qualified to tutor in these subjects and the satellite subject areas such as diction, study skills, reading and writing. I have
experience learning four foreign languages in addition to English. It is my love of the learning process, patience and passion for these subjects, however, that are most efficacious in the tutoring process. Best of luck with your studies!

About Jason
I am a music lover first and foremost, and have a passion for sharing music with other people. I have been playing piano for many years, and have taught privately in both California and Florida. I have recently moved back to Sacramento, after graduating from UC Berkeley, and am excited to build my studio here (I recently added a grand piano). I have a firm foundation in classical studies, having studied for many years privately with diverse teachers. I also have a passion for composing, and I have written, recorded, and produced an album of my own material. I have written songs for others, and
have performed in public as a solo performer and as a back-up musician. I also play the French Horn. I believe music education should be fun, and it should not just be about learning notes; music is interactive, enlightening, and each of us has a personal identity and contribution to bring to it. I speak Italian, so can easily help with all those pesky Italian musical terms that one must learn. :) I also co-organize an Italian language group in Sacramento and can assist with Italian instruction.

I have taught using various methods before, and as such I like to identify the needs of the student and goals at the onset before committing to specific material. I have had success with the Bastien Method, Faber series, and I like many lines by Alfred. If a student has a preference, I will work with them in finding the best plan of action. The goal is a strong fundamental musical education that keeps them interested and engaged. Adults have different needs than beginners. Alfred and others have great books geared towards them. In addition to specific series or teaching books, I like to find solo pieces that interest the student to help them build a repertoire that goes beyond basic technical and exercise-type pieces to encompass a variety of pieces that they actually enjoy playing.

"To play a wrong note is insignificant; to play without passion is inexcusable", at least according to Beethoven. I believe this wholeheartedly. This is a great summary of my approach to music. By passion I do not mean simply overplaying pieces and forcing fake emotion into them, rather I mean passion in the way of finding the heart and soul of a piece of music, understanding it, and being able to translate that into your performance of it. Nothing is more gratifying than a student falling in love with a piece of music, overcoming the difficulties in learning it, and conquering the performance of it. This is what the joy of music is all about. I believe in setting attainable goals, rewarding accomplishments, and that attentive listening and practice are keystones to success. Pedagogy is important, but it should never stifle creativity or discourage new ways of approaching things.
