Levels K-12

In our private science tutoring sessions, teachers focus on building a student’s understanding of scientific concepts rather than just doing homework so that the student is empowered to do future assignments independently. Our students learn to master equations, practice problem-solving skills, and beat the pressure of a science test. Special emphasis is placed on how to effectively take quizzes and exams, and how to pace oneself in order to complete them in a timely manner. Because students’ learning styles can be different with respect to how science is learned, our teachers work to unlock which methods work best for each student as an individual; therefore, private tutoring is recommended as the best approach to effectively improve one’s science skills, rather than group classes.

All levels are offered to all ages. We teach alongside school curriculum rather than introducing students to new curriculum, helping them to improve on homework, quizzes, and exams. On average, our students’ test scores dramatically improve up to two grade levels.

Tutoring is taught in sessions of 30 minutes, 45 minutes and one hour, with the cost being the same as that of private music instruction.

Essay writing, English Grammar, and Creative Writing

Improving one’s language arts skills aids a student’s socialization, academic performance, and communication, and most importantly these skills are practiced and relied upon every day. We help students get better results with their homework, essay assignments, special projects and presentations, quizzes, and exams. Our Language Arts teachers share their passion for reading, writing, and literature with their students focussing on dispelling any intimidation and progressing into developing a deep appreciation and talent for self-expression. Special emphasis is given to conversational language studies, expository writing, critical reasoning and interpretation, and reading comprehension, in addition to grammar, punctuation, syntax, and vocabulary. Private tutoring offers the student complete curricular flexibility ranging from a formal academic approach to those preparing to vacation in a foreign country.  From the high school student with a desire to improve his SAT scores to the weekend novelist, our academy’s Language Arts tutoring sessions have proven to be very effective in helping our students to attain their individual goals.

One fifth of the world’s population, over a billion, speak some form of Chinese as their native tongue.  Among what are considered a variety of dialects, Standard Chinese is based on Beijing Mandarin and is the most spoken form, as well as the official language of China and Taiwan, one of Singapore’s four official language, and one of the United Nation’s six official languages.  In our private one-on-one lessons, beginning students focus on learning the alphabet, numbers, basic vocabulary, nouns, verbs, basic Chinese characters and pronunciation. They will learn such useful conversational speech as greetings, requests, and self introductions. As the student advances to an intermediate level, they learn how to use past tense, future tense and a variety of word labels, learn sentences wants and needs. Our teachers will work to expand the students’ basic vocabulary and comprehension of Mandarin working towards the goal of navigating a conversation solely in Mandarin to communicate everyday business, transactions, and interactions.  At intermediate and advanced levels, students study literature and learn to translate texts. Studies have proven that people who speak more than one language ward off alzheimer’s and have stronger interpersonal and problem-solving skills.

Spanish is the second most popular natively spoken language in the world after Chinese, and the second most studied language after English. Spanish is used in North America, South America, the Caribbean, Europe, Africa, and Asia.  In California alone, more than a quarter of the residents speak Spanish at home and it is the second most spoken language in the United States.  In our private one-on-one lessons, beginning Spanish students focus on learning the alphabet, numbers, basic vocabulary, nouns, verbs, and pronunciation. They learn basic basic conversational speech such as greetings, requests, and self introduction.

Nicest people in the world! I brought my niece for her first guitar and the teacher was great, along with the young lady who helped us out in the front. My niece is loving the lessons and I couldn't be happier about who amazing they are l, and the level of professionalism.

I started taking guitar lessons with Alex about 2 months ago. It has been fantastic. Everyone at the school is incredibly nice, and it really has a low-key small town community type atmosphere. My lesson is one of the best parts of my week and I look forward to it every time. Most of the students are children, but I'm not. If you think you are too old to start an instrument or to take music lessons, you are incorrect! It's never too late to strike up the band. Give it a try, you will be glad you did.

They're really professional there. I got to take piano lessons while in high school, and although I didn't appreciate it then, it was a great experience. I later took guitar and piano lessons there as an adult, and I was happy with their teachers. The staff was always accommodating. When I have kids, I will definitely be taking them there. The teachers are great!

Online zoom call lessons have been working great. Patient teachers, service oriented front desk staff, charter school payment allowed. This place has been excellent for my 3 children. We took guitar, song writing, mandarin, piano, and tried out a music application type class for our youngest preschool age child.
