About Estela
Hello! My name is Estela, and I've been teaching private lessons since 2001. I enjoy helping students create beautiful music, develop good techniques, and play along with any song through improvisation. I have played violin for over 22 years including orchestras, string ensembles, church worship bands, and weddings and special occasions.

I have an undergraduate degree in psychology with a minor in violin from Louisiana State University and a master's degree in education from the University of Texas at Austin. I have also worked for 6 years as an ESL teacher and am very patient with new learners, immigrants/foreigners, and kids.

About Chanee
Hey There! I'm Chaneé. I am an American Sign Language tutor and professional Actress. Over the years I have taught ASL to many actors for specific roles and just great students who wanted to learn to communicate with the deaf. If you have friends or family that is deaf or dealing with hearing loss learning ASL is a great way to communicate and build stronger relationships. Maybe you want to become an interpreter or just learn a song for a church service or a role in a movie. Many parents use sign language or baby sign to communicate with their children. No matter the reason, I'm here to give you all the ASL you want to learn at your pace.

I studied ASL and Deaf Culture at Philadelphia College and the Philadelphia School of the Deaf while attending the University of the Arts for Theater Arts. On top of my overachieving college studie
s.. I also have many deaf friends. I use ASL in my daily life and I'm always thrilled to share the culture and language with others. I am a very friendly person so expect a good time during your lesson. I can't wait to meet you!

About Nan
I started to learn the violin since I was 3 years old. My mom chose this beautiful instrument for me, she thought it's convenient to carry. I came to America after I finished my music education degree in China, then I studied two years in the US for my Master's degree in violin performance. After I got my Master's degree, I found out there are still a lot more space I want to improve, so I came to California to continue my violin study and I got my Artist Diploma in violin performance. I played hundreds of concerts, including chamber and symphony concerts. I have given 5 violin solo concerts in the past years. I have been playing with the professional symphony orchestras. For the violin, no matter which area you want to improve, I can give you the most useful and effective suggestions to help you improve fast.
