My first home is New England, my second is the Spanish Speaking world. During my college years I was fortunate enough to study abroad in Spain at the University of Granada. I also participated in volunteer trips to Honduras. Once graduating I served in the Peace Corps and lived with a local family in rural Nicaragua for two and a half years. I've been returning ever since to secure on-going projects in the community, serving as the translator for the volunteer groups I orchestrate. Upon receiving my TEFL certification I moved first to Machala, Ecuador, and then to Quito. I lived with a local family and taught English to students and professionals of varying levels. Stateside, I have taught high school Spanish in New Hampshire for 5 years and also have experience working with preschoolers and elementary students as well. Currently I have branched off to teach on my own. I love being a language teacher and am passionate about helping my students find joy in the work and success in ...

I teach in a way that is as focused on the grammar as you want to be. I prefer conversational classes, but for many in traditional classes it is the grammar that they are not understanding.

I’m completely bi-lingual. Raised in Mexico. Spanish Literature was a secondary subject throughout my three musical degrees. I’ve been a Spanish Diction for Los Ángeles Ópera for four of their productions.
I can help with pronunciation and advanced conversation.

John is a fantastic instructor. He has a love for educating others on musical expression and he is a wellspring of musical knowledge. He provides a depth to the piano that I wouldn't have noticed if I taught myself how to play.

John emphasized how to shape musical phrases to make music as opposed to a collection of notes. He had a good ear for honing in on my weaknesses such as how some notes that I played stuck out or the movement of my arms. Most importantly, he taught me how to approach practicing the piano in an effective way. I learned how to listen to myself and how give each note, phrase, and piece the attention and musicality it needed to sound beautifully.

For an adult learner as myself, he was accommodating with how busy I was. He adjusted to my needs and work schedule and taught at a reasonable pace. However, he also never veered from his expectations and praised what I was doing right and provided methods to fix what I was doing wrong.

Although there were times when John expressed his passion for music by delving into tangents on the broader historical significance of pieces, his mini-lectures were never irrelevant nor inappropriate. For example, he commented on how in waltzes, the rhythm on the left hand would need to emulate how a Romantic era string section would play it. For anyone who is serious about how or why pieces of music are meant to be played in a certain way, John is great about contextualizing pieces to make them sound great.

Most importantly, he made practicing piano something that was both enjoyable and challenging, which is difficult to find in a teacher. I owe a great deal of my musicianship to John and he met my expectations of learning the piano. Thank you!
Kenny
John is really great. He takes the time to understand what your goals are and teaches according to your needs. He is patient and provides constructive comments.

(Genesis C.) Ms. Julissa helped me comprehend the difficult concepts of my College Algebra course much more. I highly recommend her! She is friendly, patient, observant, understanding. As a result of her tutoring, she helped me raise my grade, which I was once concerned about. God bless you, Ms. Julissa! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Julissa is both kind and patient! I like that she draws out the College Algebra problems we are working through and how she emails me the work we reviewed. She methodically explains the problems and gives specific pointers for me to remember to prevent me from making similar mistakes.

Spanish is my very first foreign language that I've been studying off-and-on since 1995. My specialty is grammar but I also can go over vocabulary, pronunciation, and other topics. My Hispanic friends call me "Pablo" or "Pablito" and some people have even told me I speak Spanish better than I do English (whatever that's supposed to mean). I have both a BA and MA in Spanish and wrote my Master's thesis on Miguel de Cervantes' "Don Quijote de la Mancha."
