For academic tutoring, please send me your latest quizzes/homework or study guides so I can prepare for your specific needs.
For guitar lessons, please make sure you have your own instrument, and a note book or device to take notes with.
For private wrestling training, I am able to come to any training facility you have access to that is within my range of travel. The minimum requirement is a 10x10 mat space.
Academics -- Experienced in tutoring reading comprehension, vocabulary, mathematics (algebra, geometry), history, geography, international relations, biology, French, Farsi, or SAT Prep.
I have a Masters Degree in Global Communication from George Washington University, having graduated with a 3.75 GPA. Fluent in English, French and Farsi (reading and writing), semi-fluent in Spanish. I also have a Bachelors Degree in International Relations from North Carolina State University, graduating Cum Laude with a 3.6 GPA.
Guitar -- 15 years experience playing, 3 years experience teaching with Guitars not Guns youth charity, and 9 years private instruction experience. Available to teach beginner to intermediate guitar players of all ages. Can teach beginner to advanced music theory. I am a great music teacher for someone who wants to write songs, or is into blues, soul, funk, hip hop, R&B, classic rock, folk, pop, reggae, or metal.

Excellent with young, committed wrestlers seeking to grow to the next level no matter their experience level.
My passion is and always has been sharing my the disciplines I've committed myself to with people.
I am a scholar, athlete, and musician. My focus in academics and athletics paved the road to my professional career, with music being the first discipline I set my mind to. Commitment to these disciplines have taught me the key skills that have helped me succeed and make it to this point in my life: focus, dedication, and a thirst for learning. These three qualities trump any natural talent anyone claims to have.

Pedram is a fantastic guitar teacher and I would recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their playing and their understanding of music.
Pedram's lessons combine practical, concrete guitar-playing advice with more advanced instruction on music theory. Together, these have made me a much stronger performer. He's also a really friendly and fun guy. I think he's a great teacher for beginners, intermediates, and experienced players alike.

Pedram is a fantastic and inspiring teacher. His easy way of explaining chord structures gives me hope that I will not just be able to play along with tabs, but also improvise on my own very soon. I always feel energized and confident after an hour with Pedram, and the training exercises he gives me to practice are really challenging, but skill-building as well.
Definitely hire Pedram if you want to learn guitar like a master!
I have always been active. I was a baseball athlete in school, and have been involved with various fitness and sports activities during my adult years. I have been a Personal Trainer, and swimming instructor for over 5 years. I really enjoy helping people stay fit and in good health, and helping kids learn to swim and be safe in water is fun and makes me feel great.

When working out with Don you are more than just a client, you are an athlete and a friend. Definitely don't miss a chance to workout with him!
Thanks Don !

Hi, I'm Sean! I have always loved helping people realize their potential and have mentored, tutored, and taught in many contexts.
I teach educational skills that I learned during my studies at Harvard College and Berkeley Law School, and test taking skills that I learned earning very competitive scores on the SAT, SAT II, APs, the LSAT, and the GRE. While at Harvard, I also tutored students in sociology, statistics, and writing.
I also teach athletic skills I gained rock climbing for the past decade and competing as a national finalist on NBC's American Ninja Warrior. I have taught count
less children and adults climbing and ninja related skills as an instructor at gyms around the country, and at Primal Fitness here in DC.
I look forward to working with you to help you realize your potential!
