About Jeff
Are you looking to learn Guitar, Singing, Beatboxing or Songwriting? No matter what style you are in to, I can help you build the skills, confidence, & practice strategies to become a successful musician. Beginners, Intermediate, & Advanced all welcome!

Majoring in classical guitar performance at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts I was a part of many performance opportunities. These included solo classical guitar recitals, weekly performance class, a collaboration with the Columbia City Jazz Dance Company, and a performance at the Columbia Museum of Art to name a few. Now I frequently participate in songwriting showcases, street performances, and collaborations with bands and music groups of many different genres.

In a lesson with me you will be focusing on four main areas:

1] REPERTOIRE: Songs you are working o
n in preparation for performance or just to play for fun!
2] MUSIC THEORY: Exercises in ear training, note-reading skills, sight-reading skills, and overall knowledge of how music works.
3] IMPROVISATION: Learn drills to improve solo skills and increase your confidence jamming with other musicians.
4] TECHNIQUE: Guitar lessons focuses on how to properly use the left and right hands in a way that that is relaxed and tension free. Voice lessons entail learning how to breath properly, prevent vocal strain, and expand your range.

In addition to instrument lessons I also provide Songwriting Lessons, Music Theory Lessons, and Music Performance Lessons for more advanced students + I teach Recording, Web Design, and Graphic Design subjects for Artists or others looking to learn how to promote themselves or their projects. (Subjects Include: Logic Pro X, WordPress, Web Design, Graphic Design, HTML, CSS, & More!)

Get started on your path to better musicianship today!

About Carla
I have been signing since 1998, spending every chance I can among my Deaf friends and immersing myself in the language as often as possible. I received my BA in Music with a certification to teach at Lubbock Christian University in 1998. Later I attended the Interpreter Certification program at Burlington County College in New Jersey from 2009-2011, and during that time took a summer course at Gallaudet University for the Deaf in Washington DC. Then in 2014 I received my MEd in Curriculum and Instruction with Instructional Technology from Houston Baptist University. I have been teaching ASL at the high school level since 2011. I am also one of the interpreters for the Deaf at my church in Fort Bend County, TX, outside of Houston, where I am a member and actively involved in the Deaf Ministry.

Please feel free to ask me any questions y
ou have. I'm happy to get back with you, and I look forward to teaching you!

About William
I am math teacher, father and grandfather. I start tutoring when I was in high school and then graduated with a bachelor's degree in mathematics in the late seventies. Later I earned a master's degree in engineering. I have taught for decades and I also had the opportunity to work as an engineer and programmer over the course of two decades. I now teach part time at colleges and tutor part time.

I teach grade school through college and the approach I use has been very helpful for students who have had trouble in math. I have students write the steps with words instead of just working examples.

A student recently wrote:

Mr. Diss took my hardest subject and broke it down so it was easier to understand. He shows clear examples of how to the problems and if I didn’t understand something he was quick to respond to my emails. I hones
tly have to say that this is the first time in my life I felt like I could truly understand math and not just hope to scrape by.

About Dan
Hi! I am a musician, writer, podcaster, videographer, and entrepreneur. I play guitar, piano, bass, drums, and mandolin. I am self-taught and teach an original method that prioritizes teaching you techniques you can use to eventually teach yourself. As a musician, you should always be learning new things. My philosophies and methods keep new and experienced students from getting stuck in practice ruts.

About Chet
Hi!

I'm Chet a senior Information Systems undergraduate student at UMBC. I have been tutoring Computer Science for over a year at bSmart Learning Center in Ellicott City, Maryland, and I love it - I find great satisfaction from seeing students develop their coding skills and gain an interest in the subject! I try to make my lessons as engaging as possible and give practical examples of each concept I teach. I place a great emphasis on practice; I believe that there is no substitute for learning how to code than to practice. With every lesson I aim to challenge my students and push the boundaries of their understanding.

I'm easy to get along with and I'm accommodating to all people with all levels of experience. I've always been told that having me as a tutor has made computer science classes easy for students and served them as a st
rong preparation for AP exams and future courses. I've worked with students from elementary school to high school. I strongly believe that no matter your age, it is never too early or too late to start coding!

I have coursework in C++ and Python and have tutoring experience in other languages like Java and JavaScript. I've had lifelong experience with computers - even as a child, I was interested in building and modifying computers. I spend my free time learning new technologies and developing software, which is what I hope to do after I graduate! It is a uniquely rewarding experience to build a piece of software and I hope to share my enthusiasm for it with you.

Feel free to message me with any questions or schedule a lesson with me!
