I have coached and tutored students in the multimedia fields, so if you are interested in learning more about how to be a music producer, DJ, or artist, I can also coach/tutor you in these fields. Send me a message if you are ready to learn English, music production, DJing, or art.

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.

College Counseling

I have a Teaching Credential (Permit) from The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing which requires you to pass the CBEST, which I did. And I have been tutoring, mentoring, and coaching students for over 14 years. Many of my students have been accepted to schools like USC, UCLA, Berkley, Stanford, Johns Hopkins University, and more. I have 6 academic degrees.

I have worked in the public school system in the ABC District with elementary school students. I have also been tutoring students for over 15 years that include elementary students. And I have a California Commission Teaching Permit.

I can teach you what it takes to make great beats and clear sounding tracks that punch through. Learn how to EQ, compress, and add fx to make your tracks stand out. I can help you set up your own home recording studio as well so you can create professional sounding songs in your own home or apartment. I have proficiency using Cubase, Waves, Native Instruments Komplete, and Macbook OS.

I have been involved in music as a DJ, musician, and producer for over 10 years. And the best part is we can work at your own pace, recording sounds and songs that you really want to work on!
