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.

Kelvin is a very patient teacher! I knew absolutely nothing about mandolin or music and Kelvin has helped with that. I have a long way to go but, with Kelvins help I believe I can get there!
I highly recommend Kelvin!!!!!

When we were looking for a piano teacher for our 13yo daughter we were looking for someone who could also help her out with her church music as she is the "organist" during school masses. Kelvin was more than willing to do so. She has learned more in four lessons with Kelvin than she did in more than two years with a another teacher. Kelvin is very patient and makes each lesson fun. At the same time he is demanding without being strict. We are all very pleased with Kelvin's method of teaching. We highly recommend him.

Terrific. Very flexible. Very considerate of time. Provides dense material comparable to the college coursework itself. Extremely prepared to assist in stats and am assuming he is equally capable at tutoring in other subjects. Highly recommend saran!

I have coached tennis since 2005. I played in HS and College and was top 50 in So Cal. I had a few private coaches myself and was always very focused on doing well. I coach all ages and skill levels and love to help people get better and have fun. I currently work as a tennis pro at Winners Tennis Club in Solana Beach but am free to coach anywhere.

Dean is awesome. We hired him to teach our 7 year old daughter and he includes my husband and I in the lesson too. It's really great that it's a family event. It's pretty amazing how he can work with us all at different skill levels. Plus he makes it fun. It's not just drills, but he has a ton of games that we play to reinforce those skills without making it feel like work. He focuses on our daughter and gives her great exercise in the process as well. He goes easy on us parents and doesn't make us run as much, which we appreciate! :-)

Playing tennis has always been a passion of mine. I was on my school's tennis team throughout middle school and high school, becoming captain my senior year of high school. I plan to help my students achieve to the best of their ability, and by coaching them and playing tennis with them, I believe I will be able to do that. Whether they need help on their backhand, forehand, serve, or net-game, I will find my students weak points and target them so I can completely round them out as a tennis player.

My son has improved exponentially with Nick's instruction! He makes tennis fun. I wanted my son to get good exercise and to learn the sport. He didn't look forward to it at first, but now going to a lesson is just hangout time and he can't wait to go.

Nicholas gave my 9-year old grandson, Aidan, a total of four one-hour lessons and in that time my grandson got Impressively better at playing and became enthusiastic about the game. Nicholas was the perfect instructor for Aidan. He taught him the fundamentals but kept the lessons fun. He related easily with Aidan. I would recommend Nicholas to anyone with a beginner player.

“ 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 “
