Sheila S.

Fullerton, CA

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

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 K-12, college-aged and adult learners, in one-on-one, small groups and medium classroom settings.
2. I am familiar with
3. Subjects I tutor in:
Elementary math, prealgebra, algebra 1 & 2, geometry, trigonometry and 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 between 12-24 hours prior to the session is subject to a fee of half of the total amount for the scheduled session. (eg. if you booked one hour, the fee is 1/2 of my hourly rate; if you booked 2 hours, the fee is the hourly rate.)
Any notification given within 12 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).
