About Jeff
Like many of my friends in high school not knowing what direction to take in life, I chose to take a business career path instead of one of a starving artist. I have a Bachelor’s Degree from Cal State Fullerton, a Masters from UC Irvine, and have had much success working for several Fortune 500 companies. However, my love of music always surfaces. And now that I have the resources and ability to spend more time having fun and enjoying life, I choose to spend some of this time teaching and helping students find a love for music.

Music has always been an important part of my life. I've had piano lessons since 6 yrs of age and been the lead tenor in many show choir and vocal performing groups. Since 2005, I've been learning the guitar from many local Las Vegas artists ranging from lounge bands at Caesars Palace to orchestra players for t
he Cirque du Soleil.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a kid, I enjoyed playing piano but I felt that my piano lessons were more of a chore than a hobby, a routine of playing songs I did not particularly like. I make lessons fun by having my students choose the music/genre that they want to play. When they learn songs that they like, students are more engaged and interested. And because they are enjoying themselves, they develop their musical talents more quickly.

My lessons are fun but also challenging. I take you out of your comfort zone by recording lessons from time to time so that you’ll know what you sound like. I feel that the best music comes out when you play from the heart. I teach fundamentals and theory, but I encourage creativity. Each artist is unique and my job is to bring out that individual music style and give you a foundation to grow on.

From a business perspective, I’m organized, punctual, friendly, informative and easy to learn from.

Try me!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have contacts who can provide a full range of recording equipment and provide coaching assistance while recording in the studio. Your end product will be of higher quality for a lower price. We're professionals!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a guitar but would expect the student to have one or get one. I'll loan you one until you get one and I can provide some tips on where to shop.

*** Specialties ***
I enjoy R&B and jazz but can teach any style

ACADEMICS
I started out on take lessons as a music instructor, but I also teach a wide variety of academics. I do have an MBA so I can coach you well and help you ace those exams. Like my music lessons, practice makes perfect. So you'll need to study and "earn" those A+ grades.

Jeff is so friendly! My 12 year old was very shy at first but he made her feel comfortable from the beginning and now she is very excited about going to her next class.
He is also very knowledgeable and professional.
Definitely a 5 star!

This tutor does not fill the total time paid for. If the student has no more questions, rather than structuring the lesson like other tutors he will simply finish early! I am sure he is very knowledgable, but his accent is very strong, making learning a newer subject harder through trying to understand new words with a strong accent.
A fan was constantly ticking in the background, and he admitted his internet connection was poor.

About Sarah
Howdy, young writers!

Do you know the formula for fiction-writing success? It may not be what you think.

1) Hard (FUN!) work
2) Good strategies
3) Helpful feedback

Let's explore these ideas a little.

1) Hard (FUN!) Work
If you think writing stories is hard work but you do it anyway because it's fun, then you already have the mind of a writer. Congrats!

2) Good Strategies
One time a teacher gave me a "D" on a writing paper. I felt devastated. I had never earned less than an "A" on my papers, and so I asked my teacher what I had done wrong. She said my writing was "like syrup." And I thought: huh??? I didn't have a clue what she meant.

Later, I found out my teacher wanted me to write with words that sounded like a picture. For example, if I wanted to describe a windy day, I should have used words like "whisper" and "wavy" and "who
osh." When my teacher explained the assignment like that, I understood. But it was too late. I already had a red "D" on my paper, and my grade in the class went down. The teacher even gave me a look that said "I'm so disappointed in you." Talk about crushing a writer's feelings!

That memory always reminds me how important it is to communicate ideas clearly BEFORE giving an assignment.

3) Helpful Feedback
When people tell you your story is "good" or "bad," how can you tell what they mean? You can't. Unless they can tell you what they mean in ways you can understand them, their opinions aren't very helpful.

That's why I have a policy of identifying what is effective in a story and what is ineffective--and then gently explaining WHY. This is the fastest way I know to help a writer improve.

When I was nine years old (a super duper long time ago!), I sat down to write a story. It was about a group of kids about my age who were daring each other to knock on the door of an old, scary house. A haunted house!

Unfortunately, I never finished the story. Why? I didn't know how. I wanted someone to help me get it down. But there wasn't anyone to help me back then.

I don't want other young writers to give up on their stories. That's why I'm here.
Now, as a late-in-life English major, I continue to enjoy the process of inventing, analyzing, and discussing stories. Especially spooky ones! :D

About James
Hey there! My name is James and I am a computer engineering major at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. My love for teaching stems from my love for service! As Muhammad Ali once said, “Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.” Nothing brings me more joy than witnessing a student’s improvement over time. My teaching style consists of walking students through the basics and setting a good foundation. This is crucial because without proper guidance, students develop poor habits; I can’t stress that enough.

I don’t think of myself as a teacher who has all the knowledge in the world, but merely as an individual who is just one step ahead of my prospective students. The thing I bring new to the table is relatability; I want to provide a safe, fun, and conducive environment for learning. Sometimes teachers wi
th years of experience have a difficult time explaining the material in a way that the average layman can understand. I offer a different approach to teaching by simplifying concepts and relating the information to a student’s topic of interest. In other words, I focus more on practicality than theory. I am very nice, patient, and approachable so don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to assisting each and every one of you with your goals!
