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.

Guitar

I have been playing guitar for 20+ years. I have also taught guitar to many students in the last 10 years in both public schools and independent schools
Every year I teach a songwriting/ music production class in the school I work. I also have a rock band and have recorded 3 albums in the last 6 years in a professional studio.
I have also taught basic music theory in middle school summer programs (Peninsula Bridge) and developed an easy/practical approach to learning guitar.
Many of my students learned how to write songs within a few months of picking up the instrument.

Spanish

I'm a native speaker from Mexico City and currently teaching Spanish at Menlo School (15+ years of experience.)

Tennis

I have played tennis since I was 4 years old. As a kid, every summer I attended many tennis camps. During college Tennis was also my favorite sport.
I also have experience as a Tennis coach at the High School level. When I was working in M-A High School, I was the assistant coach for the varsity and frosh-soph teams for 2 years.
I still play tennis at least 3 times a week and enjoy playing with many of the Varsity players from Menlo School.
