    The professionalism, well experience and patience that I guess every new learners need. My instructor Long was very kind and helpful and more than a five start. Thank you!!

  • N.T.

    The best I was so nervous at the beginning, but instructor Long put me at ease and I was able to pass my driving test on the first try.

    Instructor prepares you The main reason behind recommending them is their instructor, Long. Great guy, always reach on time, he is more eager to get you on road than you are, he will not only prepare you for driving exam, but will also teach you advance driving skills. perfect man for the job!!!!

    Great teacher It's hard being an adult driving student! But Long is a great teacher: methodical, patient, trustworthy, prompt and reliable too. He listened to me and took into account my level of skill so we could focus on what I needed to work on most. He also helped me overcome fears so I could get back to driving confidently. I drive daily now, and still sometimes hear his words in my head, guiding me at key moments.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Ask them questions, if they have any fears or concerns, and try ease the situation... show the teens how to breathe and relax. 

Once in the car, I  point out the controls on the car that DMV expects the teen to know. 

Keys: relax and breathe, walk them through the process of what DMV expect from them...


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I been a driving instructor for over 8+ years.  Worked for big driving School like Driversed.com(7 years) and i worked  for mom and pop driving school( 1+ years).

I have a business degree at Cal State Hayward and I have a CIS degree at University of Phoenix.

Base on my careers, I learned to break down the rules and steps in the simplest form. I write everything down for the students. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

1 lesson is $160 total( each lesson is 2 hours )

10 hour package is $750

I am flexible with payments. Let me know what we can do for you. 


How did you get started teaching?

After years in the computer industry,  I needed a break.  I was on Craigslist and saw a job offer: teaching kids, schedule your own time... I applied 8+ years ago and I fell in love. It is a hobby for me; a saying goes,  " do what you love and you will never work in your life. "


What types of students have you worked with?

I worked with adults, 18 years old and I had a 94 years gentleman; an amazing man. Some adults came to the Bay Area from India and China for work. 

As for teens,  I worked with ADHD teens.  


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Just taught an adult(50) who came here for a Facebook job.  She has a PHD in linguistic and she can speaks 8 languages.  She lived in Europe most of her life and in school. She had a fear of driving but after working with me, she now has a new Jeep and cruising our beautiful bay area cities. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

You need to ask the school questions:

What will the instructor teach me?

How long have youbeenteaching?

Do you like your job?

Be up front with the school,  tell them your fear and your situation.

Make sure the school and instructor understand your needs. 

Remember it is a two-way communication lesson. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

The students need to understand not all instructors, schools are the same.

Be honest with the instructor so the instructor can work around your needs.

Students must practice after the  lesson. Keep track of your hours and let the  instructors know.  If the instructor  understand you they can help better.  

Be upfront and be honest.
