About Laurie
Hello! I am a skilled teacher with a passion for helping others learn and excel! I hold my bachelor's degrees in music education and vocal performance from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I completed my master's degree in vocal performance from the University of North Texas. I have been teaching over 15 years. I tailor instruction to your need. I can help you become a stronger musician, be ready for performances and auditions, prepare for special occasions, competitions, recitals, concerts and more!

I am also very interested in nutrition and cooking. I have thus studied these areas and love to share this knowledge with others. I can help you with healthy eating, meal planning and understanding nutrients to maximize your nutrition. Cooking is endless....I can show you many, many types. Just ask!

Contact me with any qu
estions or for information. The availability displayed is primarily beginning mid/late May through the summer, when school is out. If you are interested in cooking, please send me a message. I am sometimes able to accommodate cooking lessons on Sundays given that they take longer. Thank you!

About Cody W.

Diamond Bar, CA
View Full Profile

I have experience with writing books and essays, but also poetry. I have published one anthology of poetry entitled "America vs. America." I can help you form your thoughts on paper and have them grammatically sound so that they flow well.

About Cody
With my two Bachelor's degrees in Music Composition and Technology, I began tutoring students in piano, voice, and composition as it was part of my training. I also have experience writing and editing essays, books, and more for several independent clients. I have experience writing my own books as well. I have written two so far, but am getting ready to write a third. I am a copious editor and can catch grammatical and other errors with ease. This is why tutoring in English would be great for me.
I thought I would add basic math for those school-aged children that are having a little trouble with it in their classes.
Usually, I teach lessons in my home in Diamond Bar or online, but if the need arises, I could surely work out coming to the students' homes for one-on-one tutoring help. With me, most students click after a few lessons and
understand what they couldn't in the classroom. I help the students by teaching in innovative ways that will catch their attention more than standard teaching methods. Students should consider me for I can make learning fun and never a chore!

*** Lesson Details ***
I use a wide variety of techniques to sing, play piano and other instruments. Techniques include straight vowel singing (no words) to test how long to hold notes, using color to help people sight read, using improvisational techniques in order to play jazz, rock, classical and many other styles of music.
I use what they student has under his or her belt as a starting point to see what lessons we could start them on.
I also assist with online lessons to make transportation a thing of the past. If you've got a webcam or Skype, I can do long-distance lessons with you! So, I am here to help!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Alesis Recital Keyboard
Music sheets
Web cam
Mac computer (MacBook Pro)
Finale music notation software to help in composition and theory lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Music paper for away lessons.
Finale for composition and music theory lessons.
Can use macbook for more elaborate teaching or demonstration if need be.

*** Specialties ***
I do teach classical composition with specialties in ensemble and chamber music. I also specialize in songwriting for pop and other media.
I teach voice and vocal techniques of sacred choral and vocal music.
I teach classical and jazz piano and improvisation. I also have the distinction in being able to teach students with special needs or learning disabilities as I have a mild form of cerebral palsy and understand what students with special needs go through.

Reviews from Others:
Gohar S. Said: Cody is a great teacher - my daughter loves learning piano now (it was difficult to convince her before).

Paul G. Said: Cody is a very knowledgeable teacher! He is very patient with students as well! I am looking forward to seeing what my own musical path will take with his help!!

Minna S. Said: Cody was very prompt in his response and made himself available so my son could take lessons. He was very polite and patient with my son. We look forward to seeing our son's progress with Cody's instructor.

Judene B. Said: Corey is a wonderful piano teacher! He is kind and supportive, and motivates you to work at your best. I highly recommend!

Grace C. Said: Cody is very patient and accommodating to my learning needs.

About Candace
I'm a classical violinist, a loving single mother, and a independent business owner for life, health and accident insurance through AFLAC from New York. I am a very accomplished musician performing in many venues and events such as the Long Island String Festival, NYC All County Music Festivals, Valley stream District 13 Music Festival, NY All State Concert, NYSMMA Music competitions, and yes even Carnegie Hall with the NY Metropolitan Youth Principle Orchestra 1st Violin. Ive learned that nothing of value in life comes without blood sweat and tears but it is worth it.

The things I love most in life are my son and providing for our family. On week days, you'll usually find me prospecting potential clients to help with their benefits for employees in any type of weather, for my independent business through AFLAC. On the weekends I like
to take my son with my dogs (sometimes) to the park, museums, and church or teach him the various wonders of life.

Melissa has a lovely calming personality. She made us feel completely at ease while learning a foreign language. She was prepared and tailored the lesson for our specific goals and level.

She displayed an expert knowledge of the language, but was still able to teach beginners. Plus we could tell she really loved Portuguese.

The online format was great. Cant wait for the next lesson.

Zelda is a fantastic singing teacher. I felt a good vibe when I read her bio. I started out doing a half hour lessons and changed it to hour long lessons on the first lesson. She has helped me advance in my skills. She makes it relaxing, right off the bat, when you walk in and she offer's you tea. She is very patient and helpful. I've taken five lessons and signed up for five more.

About Sade D.

As a former teacher, I have developed an easy course made for all student levels. By first getting to know you and why you are interested in the English language, I can customize a course specifically to fit your learning style. English isn't a one size fits all language, therefore teaching it shouldn't be either.

About Sade
As a teacher, I have found passion in hearing the stories of others. We all have a journey behind us, and that journey has shaped us into the decision making beings we are today. I am currently on my own journey across the United States in a renovated bus and will be giving my lessons remotely as I travel across the nation. As I travel, I am constantly renewing my skill set and also improving on my curriculum as a teacher. As your teacher, I would help you find your voice so that you may tell the story of your life in the English language.

Amanda is excellent and the instruction has been very enjoyable. She adapted to my learning style and found a way to teach that was suitable for me, based on my personal experience and background. She is also flexible, both in terms of time and subject matter so you can be sure to focus on exactly what you need at the moment. Although my schedule in New York was busy, I was looking forward to the lesson each day because it’s interesting and she is very well prepared. She is also a very nice person and I think the lessons are great for every English language learner.

15 Fun-to-Say Japanese Onomatopoeias (With Audio)
What Are Japanese Onomatopoeias? An onomatopoeia is a word where meaning is derived from a sound, or when a word sounds like how it looks. In English, we have onomatopoeias like "cock-a-doodle-doo" for the sound a rooster makes, or "crunch" for the act of crushing things. Onomatopoeias are quite common in many, if not all languages. We tend to notice them most in comics as sound effects: zippers "zip" and light switches "click." They're fun to say and they certainly aren't hard to learn.

We don’t have buttons that emit the same pitch every time they are pressed. Most of us don’t have perfect pitch, either. This makes learning to read music quite different for singers than for other musicians. Not only do singers deal with learning h
