About Jesse


Bio

I am a very experienced tutor with over 20 years in the public and private educational system, and I have permanent passing status verification from passing the CBEST which allowed me to receive a permit from the Commission on Teacher Credentialing to teach at the district level. I have a B.A. in Sociology from USC, and I also have a degree in Psychology, Social Sciences, General Education, Computer Science, and Web Development, so I know the educational system very well and what it takes to...

I am a very experienced tutor with over 20 years in the public and private educational system, and I have permanent passing status verification from passing the CBEST which allowed me to receive a permit from the Commission on Teacher Credentialing to teach at the district level. I have a B.A. in Sociology from USC, and I also have a degree in Psychology, Social Sciences, General Education, Computer Science, and Web Development, so I know the educational system very well and what it takes to succeed in school.

My teaching experience is broad, diverse, and comprehensive. I have worked with all grade levels in the ABC and WVUSD school districts. I have also taught and mentored university student organizations at USC, CSUF, and UCI.

My teaching style consists of utilizing academic concepts, study skills, and coaching that helps students achieve their goals. Many times it's not just the academic material that hinders students from succeeding; often learning effectively requires understanding the underlying problems that are getting in the way of the student's success. Along with my many years of experience, my training in psychology and sociology allows me to better understand the student's needs and how to meet those needs.

My students have been accepted to major universities like the following: UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, BERKELEY, UCLA, STANFORD, JOHNS HOPKINS, CALIFORNIA COLLEGE OF THE ARTS, PARSONS SCHOOL OF VISUAL ARTS, OTIS COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN and many other great universities.

I have acquired a myriad of experience, education, and qualifications because of my love for teaching and mentoring. It gives me great satisfaction in being able to utilize these tools to help my students achieve their goals in an effective and positive manner. Press the "Contact Jesse" button now to get started.

Music Production

I work professionally in music production. I studied music and recording arts at the School of Music at the University of Southern California. I have a recording studio in my house that I work out of. I can teach you how to create your own music from pre-production to tracking, editing, arranging, mixing, mastering, and final world-wide release of your song(s). 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!

Decent Progress

Really push for the best efficiency as possible, making progressive lessons. Knowledgeable, giving good advice on studying and personal development.

Perry, 251 lessons with Jesse

Knowledgable and Talented

I was looking for production classes because although I had the desire I had no idea where to start or how to start. I wanted to learn how to use the softwares and also wanted to learn about the science/business part. Jesse teaches in a way where you can personally experience and do it yourself which makes it even more fun rather than just studying and getting lectured. I highly recommend Jesse if you want to learn production! I feel my eyes and brain opening more and more while having fun too!

Jieun, 18 lessons with Jesse

Very impressive and skilled teacher

Jesse is very encouraging while he is teaching, wanting you to get the most out of the time allotted and making sure you learn critical things. He is my first tutor for music production and I enjoyed learning from him very much. He knows his stuff and is more than willing to share his vast knowledge on the music world.

Sean, 1 lesson with Jesse

Amazing work ethic

Jesse was a great tutor. My son showed almost immediate improvement. Jesse was patient but thorough. I would definitely recommend him and go back in the future.

Joanna, 1 lesson with Jesse

Prepared and patient!

Jesse is a patient and well-prepared tutor. He communicated with me the first class in order to find a best way for me to approach my problems from SAT. Also, he explains everything clearly and I learned a lot. I believe that my SAT score will be improved eventually by tutoring with him.

Sarah, 19 lessons with Jesse

Very knowledgeable on the program that I am wanting to learn about.

I learned how to add a reverb bus and the pros and cons. I learned how to apply and work with the pitch control on vocal tracks and setting up plug ins. Looking forward to exploring drum tracks and midi.

Dennis, 2 lessons with Jesse

Jesse is the man!

Jesse began tutoring me in Music Production the other day. He is very patient and REALLY knows his stuff. I highly recommend Jesse as a tutor in both music production and English.
