JR is excellent in assessing a student's skill level. Once he has determined it he immediately begins challenging the student with fun drills that focus in on improving areas where the student is struggling. Not a moment of the lesson is lost, everything is focused on moving to the next challenge - although patiently.

I grew up playing club tennis, played 4 years of varsity tennis in high school, was offered college scholarships to play in college, and was an tennis pro at a Swim and Tennis Club in Cincinnati, Ohio.

I understand body mechanics and have experience as an educator. These two attributes, as well as numerous friends who I've helped, make me believe that I can help anyone raise their game to the next level.

I whole-heartedly recommend Joshua for anyone of any age and any skill level who wants to enrich their life learning guitar. I appreciate the fact that he makes the time and has the patience to adapt to my needs. Joshua is flexible in scheduling - especially for those unforeseen incidents - which is appreciated.

Being an adult beginner with music lessons, Joshua eases my frustration on immediately wanting to play perfect notes and chords. I look forward to continuing lessons.

My 8 year old raved about Joshua being her favorite teacher after her first lesson. Joshua creates a lesson plan that's incredibly effective, time efficient, and focused on empowering the students passion for music. My daughter felt safe in his home and we were both impressed by his teaching tools in addition to his guitar collection. Last, he's got a great attitude and is relentlessly positive. Highly recommend!

I'd like to write a quick testimonial about the tutor I found here on Takelessons. Joshua has worked with my 1st grade brother for about 8 weeks and he has made impressive progress in both his reading and math skills. He has also helped discover my brothers learning condition, dyslexia, but it seems like Joshua has had no problem with that. My brother has enjoyed working with him and is demonstrating new learning, this delights me. Joshua has also developed a fun relationship with my other brothers too. I could not more strongly recommend Joshua to tutor any student.

One thing I like to do is adapt to my tennis students. Whether they are beginners or there advanced players trying to get better. If there a beginner i will teach them basic fundamentals and learn how to play the game of tennis. If they have strokes that they use that are comfortable to them and they just wanna get better or consistent (if there stroke is good) I wont change it completely but I adapt to there stroke and see what I can do to make them play more better and consistently

“ Our Son is lucky to have Mr.Art Maeda as his coach and he is learning a lot in every class. I hope his aspiration to play in varsity will come true. We admire Art’s skill and technique in coaching my son. He is true professional tennis coach and his techniques are unique that I haven’t seen anywhere. Thank you Art “
