I love teaching English, Spanish, elementary math, and guitar. I’m a certified TEFL English teacher, a licensed K-6 elementary/K-8 Spanish teacher, and a professional guitarist. I have a Masters in Teaching, a B.A. in English and Spanish, and a TEFL certificate. I have 12 years of experience teaching in American public schools, and I’ve taught guitar for more than 20 years. I know what students need to make progress, and I use fun and effective activities that make learning enjoyable. I’m here to help you reach your goals.

Kevin is a caring, enthusiastic and engaging teacher. He integrates technology as well as art into his lessons. He is culturally sensitive and creates an inclusive climate in his classroom. My daughter was lucky to have Kevin as a classroom teacher for couple years and she had an amazing experience. She also took guitar lessons from Kevin for a few years, that experience fostered her love for music. I recommend Kevin ONE HUNDRED PERCENT!+ Read More
My son took Mandolin lessons from Mr. Pinck. He was 12-14 years old at the time. He was very professional as well as having a great sense of humor. He was very positive with feedback. We had the benefit of getting some of the lesson in Spanish as well as in English over the years as my son was working on his Spanish skills. Mr. Pinck was very flexible with his time. It was fun for my son to get a chance to work with a variety of stringed instruments. Mr. Pinck had a great knowledge of his instruments and a great teaching style! I would highly recommend him as an instructor for any stinger instrument!!+ Read More
My son took electric guitar lessons with Kevin for two years and only stopped because Kevin moved away. Kevin is very patient with students, taking time to explain things clearly. He also allowed my son to choose music he likes, making the experience that much more enjoyable. I think Kevin does a great job relating to and communicating with students.+ Read More
Kevin Pinck is so wonderful with students. Very encouraging and patient. He taught my 12 yr old daughter this summer, and she really enjoyed learning guitar from Kevin.
