Private Experiential English Lessons, Academic Tutoring, Test Preparation, and Transcription for Adults and Teens


Fill Me In English offers experiential English lessons, tutoring, and proofreading to adults and teens. English is the focus here, but instruction--most of which is cognition-based--is offered in all general education subjects (e.g., natural sciences, language, history).

From ensuring that English language students regularly interact with native English speakers, to developing and executing hands-on, goal- and interest-focused projects to regular old kill and drill, FMI places a premium on ensuring subject mastery and overall joy and personal satisfaction.

Hot Couture

  • The Crucible 1260 7th Street Oakland, CA, 94607 United States (map)


The Crucible embarks on a rigorous process to determine which artists and fashion designers will appear in Hot Couture. While some are already professional designers, others are new to the field and straight out of art school. Quite often, Crucible instructors and students get involved. Based on the theme of each annual production, designers submit up to four concepts and sketches. Roughly a dozen teams are selected, based on the most innovative proposals that can also be achieved on a limited budget. Hot Couture 2017 will feature a truly amazing lineup:

Hot Couture 2017: The Beautiful Ones will pull out all the stops, beginning with a performance by national recording artist Netta Brielle. Turntable queen Pam the Funkstress (aka Pam Warren), a beloved local DJ who recently toured with Prince, will provide ambiance music and intermission sets. Bay Area radio personality Sterling James will also be on the runway, returning to host the four-night event.

Prices range from $55 (general admission, standing) to $115 (VIP seating with complimentary bar and hors d’oeuvres). Please call 510.444.0919 with any questions.
