Great teacher of all things!

I'm taking piano/voice privately from Mary. I wanted to learn opera and then she showed me how important music theory is to work on your voice. I'm in my mid 40s and thought I never could learn all this complicated stuff- but Mary makes it so fun and easy and motivates me. I and my friend took ballroom dancing from her too. She has great prices and spends alot of overtime . Very generous and experienced!

Joya undertook the translation of technical guidance (a construction standard) from English into French. She consulted well on the exact translation of technical terms, delivered on time and to budget. The translation has been well received by french colleagues for whom it was prepared.

Katey F. Valley Village, CA

About Katey

I am currently in school to get my teaching credential and have spent some time in elementary school classrooms working with small groups or individual students. I have tutored students in reading, math, and Spanish through the America Reads program in New York and while I was in high school in California. I love helping students to achieve their academic goals and discover their true potential. My older sister has autism so I have become very familiar with many different special needs children and am very understanding and patient with each student's level of learning. I also volunteered at an Autism center while studying abroad in Ghana during college, so I have some experience working with children in many different environments.

Nikki S. Los Angeles, CA

Hello! My mother taught me how to sew when I was nine years old and I have loved it ever since. I used to make my own clothes and wear them to school! This led me to study it in college. I graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2012 and received a BFA. I can teach the basics starting with the tools and how to use a sewing machine, all the way to making your own patterns. I also have fashion sketching skills!

On the first lesson Nikki related to my sixteen-year-old very well, and she dove right in to teaching fashion illustration. My daughter has had other art instructors from other schools - little of whom accomplished as much as Nikki in the first lesson. She gave necessary information ahead of class and was prepared with samples and work to be completed in class. It is wonderful when a student is happy she gets homework too! We are looking forward to many more lessons with Nikki.
