About Lars
I began to teach guitar at 16 years of age. I have taught seven- to 60-year-old students in a wide variety of styles. From age 12 to 21 I took private guitar lessons regularly. Now, I have a lesson every once in a while. I studied jazz guitar primarily with Randy Vincent, one of the San Francisco Bay Area's greatest guitar players. Aside from teaching lessons as a job, I have played guitar in many concerts and continue to do so. Before moving to San Francisco for university studies, I gained a lot of experience and valuable education with guitar. I played in the jazz bands in Junior High and High School. I went to four years of a week-long summer jazz camp called Jazz Camp West, where I took classes, played open mics and had fun with many musicians, making some good friends. I hold BA degrees in Music (Jazz Guitar) and Spanish, as well as
an MA in Music, from San Francisco State University. By now, I am confident in working with whatever musical material students offer! Thank you.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher, but I definitely expect students to practice what I suggest they practice. I advise that students use method books or sheet music of some sort, and I will certainly make notes for them and create materials they can learn from. I always teach based on the goals of the student and what type of music they enjoy, but I also like to guide the student in a direction I think would benefit them. I usually introduce music to play right away, conforming of course to the skill level and interest of the student. I now a play seven-string guitar that differs from the standard six-string guitar in that it has one string lower than the low E of a six-string. It will be practical to aide students by accompanying with a bass range instrument.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar
My guitar roots are mainly Jazz, but I am always happy to employ a very wide range of styles. I work with both modal and tonal musical styles.

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).

Wether it's grammar, conversation, speaking, or writing..English should be fun and not a struggle! I love teaching and getting students (young and not-so-young) to enjoy the process of learning. {:

About Alexandra
Greetings!, Hello!, Hi!, Hey!

I've been teaching English and ESL since 2000 and taught all ages from kids to adults. Two incredible experiences were teaching in Eritrea, E. Africa and Guatemala, C. America. Not only do I enjoy making grammar and conversation accessible to all students, but my goal is to help students to become fluent and obtain the skills to have both professional and social conversations.

Most importantly, I love teaching and helping students get on their own path of "the love of learning"!

Alexandra is an excellent instructor. She has a great friendly style with people of all ages and actors of all experience levels. Alexandra is very detailed oriented. This is beneficial to actors in that she makes sure you all are breaking down the script and asking all the right questions regarding the text, your role, and your scene partner's role. I feel you will learn a lot with Alexandra, as I did, and enjoy your time with her.

About Bettina S.

Close

Languages are my passion, and I have been teaching them for over 10 years. Whether you are learning English As A Second Language, or you are a native speaker who just needs some help, I can help you reach your goal. Patient and gentle, I will customize my lessons to fit your learning style, and your needs. We can work with a text you have, or I can suggest books for us to learn from, depending on your level.

About Bettina
I lived in Israel for over a decade, and graduated from the University of Jerusalem with degrees in Education and History. I regularly read Torah, chant megillot, and lead services in my synagogue.

I grew up in Sweden, speaking Swedish at home, but going to French school. At age four, I was immersed in a French environment, and had to sink or swim. I swam! In my late teens, my family moved to Israel, so I became fluent in Hebrew as well. I understand a lot about the language acquisition process.

While languages fascinate me, and come easily to me, I understand that that is not the case for everyone. I am very patient, and willing to try different methods in order to succeed. I realize that some people learn best by seeing the materials, while others need to hear them, or even sing them! Others need to move their bodies and engage in
kinesthetic learning. I facilitate all these methods.
I have taught all ages, from preschoolers to the elderly. I have taught in schools, preschools, informal educational settings (like summer camps) as well as one-on-one privately.

I’m very flexible with timing, and available as often as you’d like, Sunday to Friday.

Bettinas’ style, knowledge, and patience are some of her keys to my success in Paris. I appreciate her effort. I will continue in a manner such that I will not lose this progress. Merci beacoup!

I am writing this review after just completing my 8th lesson with Milad, and having already begun to converse. I have studied several languages before, and tried to learn some on my own, and I can say without a doubt that Milad is the best language teacher I have ever worked with. Unlike most language classes that start with the typical 'my name is' and 'where are you from', Milad starts by teaching the grammar, conjugation, and whatever vocabulary that comes up through the class, allowing you to learn to speak as you go along. In the span of eight weeks, his approach has allowed me to adequately grasp Farsi grammar, and also to learn a very wide vocabulary. I have just begun listening to Farsi podcasts and news, and although native speakers speak very quickly I am still able to identify words, and understand sentences. I cannot recommend him enough!
