Piano
Great teacher of all things!

I'm taking piano/voice privately from Mary. I wanted to learn opera and then she showed me how important music theory is to work on your voice. I'm in my mid 40s and thought I never could learn all this complicated stuff- but Mary makes it so fun and easy and motivates me. I and my friend took ballroom dancing from her too. She has great prices and spends alot of overtime . Very generous and experienced!

Patience and Fun

My 15 yr old son has taken Algebra and now AP exam prep tutoring from Mary. Trey has some learning disabilities and Mary does so great with teaching him the math formulas and how they can be used in every day life so then he memorizes them alot better.

Rosa L. Los Angeles, CA

I've been teaching for more than 3 years.

In these lessons you will learn the basics of the sewing machine and we can choose any project you would like to work on after a few basic sewing tests.

Intermediate students can skip the refresher if they want and get right into pattern drafting, cutting and sewing.

You will learn design terminology and I will step in at every question you have as well as throw in tips and tricks that may work best for your projects.

Let's get started!
