About Kelvin
I am a highly organized, outcome-driven and motivated professional musician and educator with solid experience in the classroom. For the past 25 years, I have been employed with Amati music academy and seven years on the faculty of University of St Francis.
I am very comfortable with all aspects of the current music syllabus, including teaching musical concepts (such as duration, pitch, dynamics, tone color, texture and structure) as well as performance, composition. I am fully qualified, with a Bachelor of Education in Music, Double Masters in music performance and education from University of Nottingham.
I am proficient in classical, jazz and Celtic fiddle violin and possess solid skills in piano (grade 8-13) Royal conservatory system.
Throughout my teaching career, I have been driven to help students achieve their very best. I str
ongly believe that music has the power to change lives – to enhance the social, cultural and spiritual lives of people, and serve as a profound medium of personal expression. Professional perform experience: The Chicago, Natalie Cole, Smokey Robinson, Three tours with Moody Blues, YoYo Ma etc....
The most important thing I look for in a student is communication skills, as well as talent. I like to nurture students and help identify their individual strengths, which is a key factor in shaping a musical persona that will make its mark both on and offstage. I do not advocate a uniform technique for all students. Physical differences and learning styles are always taken into consideration. Potential is as important to me as early achievements and experience. My goal is to help students become self-sufficient, discriminating artists. I discuss practice techniques often and develop individualized scale routines. I encourage initiative and expressive musicality as well as precision. Above all, music needs to bring obvious joy to the student, regardless of the difficulties.”

About Jackie
Hi! My name is Jackie, and I have 15+ years of experience in teaching, tutoring, and training. Currently, I am enjoying managing two small businesses while teaching students part time.

All of my students, meaning a perfect 100%, have improved their grades by at least one letter grade, if not more, and passed every one of their tests and exams. I help ALL my clients reach their goals!

A couple years ago, I returned to San Diego after living in Peru for several years where I taught English as a second language. My students ranged from adult business people and academicians to primary and secondary school students. I really needed to utilize different teaching methods depending on each student’s needs. Some students wanted more business-related conversation, so I had to be able to teach business principles in marketing, communication,
logistics, interviewing, and so much more. Critical thinking was an area that I pushed my business students to improve. Other students needed to work on the basics of grammar, reading, and writing, and we had a lot of fun in class, whether going through the interactive lesson or improvising by playing fun games to emphasize thinking on their feet in another language.

The feedback I often received from my Peruvian students, as well as my students in Mexico and the U.S., was that I made learning an enjoyable experience—they wanted to work harder to advance quickly in their classes. All of my students agree that I have a lot of patience and turn even the most challenging lessons into ones of positivity and encouragement. I provide critical feedback in the most constructive of ways that help the students reach conclusions on their own. I enjoy being there to support and guide their experience!

Before I left for Peru, I worked at St Vincent de Paul Village (part of Father Joe's Villages) in downtown San Diego. There I focused on Health Education. I built the Villages' first Health Education department and helped start its innovative Health & Wellness program. As part of these two programs, I taught homeless and low-income adults with and without learning disabilities, as well as children from preschoolers to high school students. Teaching such a wide variety of students how to improve their health while living in sometimes precarious situations without much income or stability pushed me to think creatively and come up with memorable ways to engage the students and help them apply what they had learned in their daily routine.

In high school, I took all AP and college prep classes. I went to a liberal arts college in Virginia where I focused on social studies and biology. I spent a few years training business people in Microsoft Office, Photoshop, InDesign, as well as presentation techniques. In grad school, I specialized in applied anthropology and public health. During that time, I tutored students in web design. In between, I've worked in Communications and Training in international health and development, so I have a lot of experience to bring to teaching.

Basically, I love teaching. I'm enthusiastic yet patient, and I absolutely adore helping kids and adults alike learn. It's such a sense of accomplishment when my students show off their terrific grades. I see the same look in my students’ eyes regardless of age—that pride that shines from within, that exuberant smile, like they can conquer anything. I want my students to keep that pride for a long, long time.

Right now, I'm writing two textbooks to be used in my Spanish classes. I've also written several academic articles published online. I love traveling, cats, and learning!

About Yaelle
Bonjour !

I was born and raised in a small town in West of France where the speciality is... a handkerchief!

I have since lived in Belgium, Norway, Israel, Romania and now Texas following my husband who is a scientist. In every country, I taught French to several students and developped great tutoring skills from it.

Beside teaching and science, my passion in life is cooking! I will be more than happy to share French recipes with you so you can feel and taste some of the French culture.

Yaelle makes me feel really comfortable whenever we meet. At first, I was kind of embarrassed to try and speak in another language, but she was able to get me to do it. When she corrected me, she was really nice about it. I think I've made a lot of progress with her; she's a really good teacher!

About Hardik
Hi, my name is Hardik Shah, founder of Roadside Treats. I am Indian, born in Northridge California but raised in Mumbai (Bombay), the city that never sleeps.

Cooking has always been my passion. Since I was a little boy, I loved to cook, spending hours in the kitchen with my mother, making a mess but learning delicious traditional Indian recipes, using authentic seasonal, fresh ingredients and preparing everything from scratch. Today, I am still the same little boy who is in love with spending time in kitchen and experimenting with different tastes and textures. However, I am faithful to the authentic Indian traditions, flavors and ingredients.

I love cooking Indian food at home all the time and I find the process of creating a home cooked meal to be unwinding. For me food is not only nourishing but also comforting, loving, fun, an
d pleasurable.

About Roxanne
You may think this is interesting, but I am the owner of a home bakery. I sell baked goods from my home and deliver to my customers...

That's what I do during the day. In the evening, I love to teach young people how to cook. Actually, it doesn't matter how old you are; if you can handle cooking utensils, follow some helpful instruction and read a recipe, you got this!

I come from a family of cooks from way back in the day. I was taught, starting at age 6, how to cook in the kitchen and handle small knives. I had my own special knife for chopping and slicing vegetables and fruits. That's all she would allow me to do for a long while. Then, my mom slowly introduced me to new things, like boiling eggs and making gravy and homemade biscuits. Not much came from a box or can back then. I learned a lot about the foundation of making a wonderf
ul meal...prep work.

It sounds a bit off-putting, but if you invest in a few handy kitchen tools, prep can be pretty easy, and a little fun! That's part of what my students will learn in my classes.

I am a learner. I love to learn! If I'm not learning, I feel half alive. That's why I love cooking and baking. There is always something new to learn and see and do. It's hands-on, and that's my style of learning!

Many people can follow a recipe and cook a pretty good meal, but when it comes to looking into the fridge and the pantry and pulling something together, that's a whole different story. I love creating dishes that make my family wonder where I got the recipe from. When I say, "I just made it up!" That's a good feeling.

I not only want to teach students how to read a recipe and make a meal, I want to teach them some of the science behind cooking; why you should be careful when a recipe calls for salted or unsalted butter; or how to melt chocolate the old-fashioned way!

I'm very excited about taking this journey with each of my students. I love interacting with people and fostering a loving community.

So, come on, let's do this together!

Stacy does not hesitate to get to know her students and she will immediately modify any lrecipe necessary. I had some food allergies and if I needed an adjusted recipe, she already had one provided. She is clearly passionate about everything involving the kitchen and her enthusiasm is infectious. She istantly becomes someone you want to impress and she helps you do just that. Amazing. Love her, want to take her agin.
