About Daniel
818-577-7000

I'm a graduate of UCLA School of Engineering with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering. I have a passion for explaining how the physical world works through math and physics along with 9 years of tutoring experience in those subjects, test prep, and mentorship programs. The teaching strategy I believe in emphasizes subject fundamentals, a powerful and necessary tool for higher problem solving. This strategy has proven very effective regardless of the student's educational background or mental ability. Besides being knowledgeable, I am motivating, caring, and patient in guiding your
student to academic success!

Executive Functioning is a separate realm that tutoring can assist in. It deals with cognitive processes including organization, time management, and study skills. Much of the difficulty students face in academic subjects can be attributed to the lack of executive functioning. They either cannot keep up with the pace and workload that advanced courses demand or haven't figured out the best way to study for themselves. I am able to assess students' shortcomings and formulate a plan for higher achievement.

• Math:
Elementary • Pre-Algebra • Algebra 1 & 2 • Geometry • Pre-Calculus • Trigonometry • AP Calculus • Business Calculus • Differential Equations
• Physics:
AP Physics 1 & 2 • College Physics
• Test Prep:
SAT I & II • ACT • ISEE • SSAT • HSPT • GRE • and more
• MS Word • Excel • PowerPoint • Windows
• Mentorship:
• Grade Monitoring
• Teacher Collaboration
• Executive Functioning:
• Organization
• Time Management
• Study Skills
• Completely turned around achievement and self-confidence of mentored students
• Track record of student improvement particularly in math and physics

We got together to study for my Calculus Test. Daniel was so helpful that I continued to use him and even got a 107% on my mid-term. He is very flexible with lessons and I highly recommend him!

About Daniel
Music lessons should be fun and focus on what you want! I am willing to travel to you or welcome you to my studios: Reseda pr Canoga Park. I travel to homes San Diego and Los Angeles Counties.
What is your goal? School or Church choir? Musical programs?Learn to Cantor or lead songs at Church/Synagogue? Disney careers, rock/pop bands? Becoming a professional or just for personal enrichment!! I am able to help you move closer to reaching that dream!!! I am a graduate of USD with a B.A. in Philosophy with an emphasis in musical performance. I also hold a Masters degree, completed Califo
rnia Teaching Credential Curriculum from Chapman University and completed Doctoral Studies at Catholic University of America in Washington D.C. I studied voice, guitar and piano classes throughout grade school, high school, college and post-graduate training. I specilized in vocal training with Robert Austin and in San Francisco with Richard Nichol of the Garcia-Marchesi Institute. I sang with the Palm Beach Florida Opera Company. I am a tenor with a 3.5 octave range. I also sang and performed in Musicals and Operas and Sacred Oratorios from Maui to Florida. I am the proud "dad" of two high school aged children who are excellent students!
I teach voice (beginner to professional levels), guitar (acoustic and electric: beginners to Intermediate) and basic piano. I have been teaching private lessons for 7 years. I also offer voice or guitar classes at St. Cecelia's School of Music in Canoga Park, and privately in my home Reseda. I focus my instruction on "correct" breathing and proper singing. My time-tested techniques will improve and protect your voice from injury.and produce a beautiful tone and wonderful performance. I teach guitar chords, reading standard musical notation as well as tablature. For beginning piano students of all ages I teach you how to read music, play scales, strenghten your finger strength and play cords and song.

I was honestly speechless during my first lesson! Daniel G is the person I have been looking for in a long time. Daniel G is a great teacher! He has such a powerful and controlled voice and what a great personable guy! I just recorded a song tonight and I can already hear and feel a difference. After my voice changed, I kept getting frustrated trying to find the right teacher. I actually think I learned and improved more from my first lesson with Daniel than weeks with others. I'm almost hesitant to write this review in fear Daniel will have less time with me. 8-)

About Bethany
Horn teacher currently located in Santa Barbara, CA.

About Me | Teaching Experience
I have been teaching private french horn lessons as a freelance teacher since 2008. I am currently on faculty as a Horn Instructor at Westmont College and on staff at the Music Academy of the West.

As a teacher, I find the most joy in seeing technical improvement translate into artistic freedom and musicality. I tailor lessons and take time to understand each student's pace of learning and playing style.

In the past, I have also worked as a tutor at local junior high/high schools. I have unique expe
rience in tutoring college bound students and assisting with college preparation, admissions, and auditions. I also have experience with special needs students.

Lesson Details | Private Horn Lessons
I will drive to you for lessons - the only required equipment is 2 chairs and 1 stand. A piano/keyboard is preferred for music theory and ear training aspects of horn playing but not necessary.

Bethany is a wonderful instructor! She is consistently caring and insightful, and has appropriately high expectations--which push her students to improve. She was able to help me wisely choose music that would be both challenging and rewarding. I highly recommend her, and I had a great experience taking lessons from her.

I have had the pleasure of collaborating with Bethany over the years and can't recommend her enough for lessons. She is professional, efficient, and a wonderful musician. She has a unique musical insight and intuition that shows in her performances. Bethany has always been incredible at explaining ideas in both a constructive and clear manner. She is a wonderful, patient, kind teacher, and has inspired many, including myself with her playing and discipline in honing her craft.

About Ian
I graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a master of science in Physics and have 2 years of experience with physics and math tutoring through the company half-price tutors, located in SLO/SB. As my work has pushed me closer to the LA area I now am tutoring independently. I am qualified to teach all levels of high school through undergraduate physics, general through quantum. I am also qualified to tutor all levels of algebra and calculus, the toolkit that enables one to study physics.

Throughout my undergraduate studies we had a core group of five friends who all more or less tutored each oth
er and helped each other through our courses and all of us succeeded in graduating on time with our physics degrees. I love physics, the study of how the world works. No matter if you are struggling or just want extra help I will enjoy working with you to help you understand physics and mathematics.

I also play piano with a jazz fusion group, 'the hypno rings.' I would love to help you learn to play this amazing instrument.
