About Paula

My passion for teaching and tutoring stems from an early age. I always knew I wanted to be a performer but along the way I find myself coaching others to find their voice and passion along the way. My first teaching job came when I was only 13 years old after being asked to take over the elementary Sunday School class. I've been teaching and tutoring ever since and am happy to do it on a professional full-time level.

Throughout the year I can be found performing al around the world as a singer for Carnival Cruises as well as locally here in Los Angeles. On my down time I enjoy helping students of all ages or recording artists in my professional studio in Burbank. I am eager to help you climb to the next level in your journey and I look forward to working with you. Let's make it great!

As a math tutor, I have worked with students of all ages during and after school. I am able to pin point a students problem areas in math right away and then quickly help them work through it. I have studied math on a collegiate level so my ability to teach it reflects that.

Music is my first love and true passion. I am currently an active performer, having toured the world performing for Carnival Cruises or with live bands. I also run a recording studio and have degree in sound engineering and post production. So I am able to teach everything from how to compose the song, to how to sing and perform and finally how record and mix it. Whatever your desire in music as a performer, producer, songwriter or engineer I can help with.

I have a degree from the Los Angeles Recording School, song and music composition was a major part of the curriculum. In order to record and produce music effectively, it is important to learn song construction from the various parts of the song (verses, hook, chorus, bridge, b section, etc.), to various chord progressions, to learning key signatures, tempos, transitions, etc. I have taught these aspects and more in various after school programs around the Los Angeles area.

As the owner of my own studio and production company, I have an open and flexible schedule which allows me to be ready and available to my current and future students. I am happy to assist you at any time no matter what level you're on. Contact me now so we can get started today. There is no time like the present!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Composition (Music)

As an educator and tutor with a degree from the Los Angeles Recording School, song and music composition was a major part of the curriculum. In order to record and produce music effectively, it is important to learn song construction from the various parts of the song (verses, hook, chorus, bridge, b section, etc.), to various chord progressions, to learning key signatures, tempos, transitions, etc. I have taught these aspects and more in various after school programs around the Los Angeles area.

Music Production

As a educator and tutor with a degree from the Los Angeles Recording School, production was a major part of the curriculum. I have trained and interned in major recording Studios with industry professional producers and have been producing for various artists and music projects. I developed a music production course for an after school program called L.E.A.P. where I taught students how to produce using the application called Logic. We explored the use of beat machines, midi controllers, basic chord progressions on the piano, loops, tracking, sequencing, sampling, layering, etc.

Voice (Music)

I am trained vocalist of over 20 years with more than 6 years of live performing, recording, touring and industry experience. I teach students of all ages from adolescent to adult how to fine tune their instrument, their voice, through various training methods such as learning scales, keys, matching pitch, breath support, bridging their chest and head voice, etc. all in effort to find their true voice and tone. I do an assessment of their voice from day 1 and then document their progress while having them learn to execute a song of their choice and using vocal exercises and cds at home as well.
