I have been training in classical piano for over 20 years, with a special focus on Beethoven and Chopin. I offer beginning private piano lessons from my quiet home in Cotati, CA. I am calm, patient, and eager to work with any age student who is enthusiastic about learning how to play the piano. My lessons are tailored to the student's interest, and they will learn to play on a BABY GRAND, too! I also have a 2nd Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do so I can coach most anyone who is eager to learn or fine tune their blocking & striking. In need of Computer and Academic Skills??? You got it!! I'm here to help you with anything from basic computer commands to some Microsoft Office® techniques. Want to edit a movie on your Mac®? I can help you. Why? Because I'm your All-Around Tutor™!!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Geography

So you know where SFO is but where is LHR, CDG, or BNE huh? Together, we'll make learning places fun. I can help you with finding places on that globe that you couldn't get before!

Macintosh

I have a Macintosh. I have had many One-to-One classes from their Apple® store and, as a result, have learned the basic skills of iLife®. If i can help someone with that, it'd be a benefit to them & me.

Martial Arts

I have a 2nd degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and have been studying intermittently since '93. I have helped teach and have led classes on my own. I look forward to helping you or your student learn this martial art.

Microsoft Excel

I can help people with the basics of Excel. From teaching what cells are to teaching how to do formulas, rest assured, I can help!

Microsoft PowerPoint

Need to do a presentation in a fancy-shmancy style?? I can help you! Together, we'll put pictures in your presentation, make your font look nice, and go over the basics of how to go through your talk!

Microsoft Word

So you know HOW to type, that's the first step. Now, let's change the font size & type. Let's increase or decrease the indentations, put page numbers in and so much more. I can help you!

Piano

My lessons are tailored to the student's interest. I've been playing since I was five. I play music from a variety of composers ranging from Bach to Chopin to Mozart. I studied music theory from the age of five until the age of twenty-two. I attended high school where we practiced sight singing. After completing H.S., I was part of a choir who was invited to sing at the Vatican to sing for the Italian President and the Pope. In doing this, my musical background broadened.
Having played for numerous years, I can provide students a wide range of what they would like to learn
Thank you.

Prealgebra

Math can intimidating but it can also be fun! I like numbers and you will, too. Together, we'll solve for X, figure how "mean" numbers can be, and much more!

Proofreading

Added an extra letter to a word? Forgot to put that period at the end of the sentence? I can help! I have a knack at looking for when to use "which" or "that", when a comma is forgotten, and, of course, when you have had that "what-was-I-thinking moment" of not putting that capital letter at the beginning of the sentence!

Psychology

I have taken many psychology courses as an undergraduate. Be not "a-Freud", I'm here to help! General psych., child psych., and more...I can help you!
