Thank you for looking at my profile. I am new to Wyzant, but I have been tutoring kids from elementary through high school for almost ten years. I am professional, reliable, and I can provide references upon request. I am passionate about helping others to learn and succeed in whichever subject they choose to study with me, and I truly look forward to working with you.
I specialize in test prep (especially ISEE and SAT), Spanish, and English (writing, reading, grammar), and all math up to geometry.
I am also a professional drummer and percussionist, and I currently teach drum set and Afro-Cuban percussion (congas, timbales, bongo, and bata drums). I have taught music privately and in groups for about eight years at the college level, to kids of all ages, and adults. I recently gave a Latin Percussion Ensemble class at the Remo Recreation Center in North Hollywood. I have toured nationally and internationally as a drummer with a Grammy-nominated act, and I perform all around Los Angeles with salsa, jazz, reggae, and Latin groups.
I also have over ten years experience as a swim instructor. I have taught swimming privately, at Los Angeles Valley College, and for the City of Los Angeles Aquatics program. I participated in swim team in high school and college and I still swim recreationally.
