We Now Donate 20% of Our Profits to SPEF and PEF! | Message from the President


Hodis Learning & Music proudly supports PEF (Pasadena Educational Foundation) and the South Pasadena Educational Foundation (SPEF)


When I started up Hodis Learning & Music (HLM), I set out to create a business that embodied my philosophy of teaching which builds off of two basic but essential principles: expertise and kindness.

Since our founding, every business decision has been made with these principles in mind. We handpick expert educators to provide students with top-quality academic tutoring, music lessons, and art instruction. These educators receive competitive pay and our students receive services at fair and affordable prices. And we give back to the educational institutions our students attend.

We have donated to the South Pasadena Educational Foundation since September 2021. We started giving to the Pasadena Educational Foundation (PEF) a month ago. We now donate 20% of all net profits to these organizations. These changes come as HLM experiences growth in our population of Pasadena clientele and in our overall business.

As an integral part of our identity and purpose, our giving will only increase as we continue to grow. Over the next few years, we plan to contribute to existing scholarship funds and eventually award HLM-sponsored scholarships in the community.

HLM could not have made it here without our students, parents, educators, business partners, contractors, and supporters. Thank you all very much for helping make HLM the strong and kind business that it is today.

Sign up for expert academic tutoring, music lessons, or art instruction today. It’s a double-win: your money will go towards expert educational services while simultaneously supporting important educational foundations.
