I know learning a new language can be intimidating at first but as your language coach,you'll see learning can be comfortable and fun! In my classes, all classes are recorded ( they are private!) I find that our recorded lessons are going to be a great reference when you are practicing and it enhances the atmosphere by you seeing how much you have improved. Every week we will have a conversation based on what we have learned in our prior lessons. You will have access to powerpoints, scripts, recorded lessons and more! If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask! Just click the "ask a question" above or contact TakeLessons today!

About Rosita
I have been singing and studying voice for over 23 years since I was a child! I hold a Bachelors from Musicians Institute and other accomplished degrees from American Musical Dramatic Academy to conclude my quest for vocal excellence and the ability to sing in multiple languages ( English, Spanish, Japanese and Italian) I have been lucky enough to study with some of the top teachers in the country and now I bring the experience I have gained directly to you!
I am proud to share my student's vast array of musical successes. From being cast on short anime films and musicals to being accepted into prestigious performing arts academies to conquering the Karaoke scene. My passion for multiple languages and love of music is the desire driving me to share the gifts for teaching young children to open the door to their own musical abilities and
hidden artistic desires. I am currently writing a musical which will be debuting in 2020. I'm currently the vocal coach/Trainer and choir director at Iglesia Elim Central.

I will make sure my students have fun and help them get in the right track to their musical goals.

Also, I constantly upload videos on Singing, The Spanish Language, and Japanese! So keep Checking in! It ranges on tips and answering the most common questions on those particular subjects!

Also There are discounted rates for worship teams and church choirs. For more information please contact me through the "Ask a Question feature"

*** Lesson Details ***
I do my absolute best to create a positive atmosphere for my students. Even when the students feel frustrated or stressed, it is important to inspire them and give them the fuel that they need. Though I am strict when it comes to homework and their about their studies. Every lesson at the beginning I will review what we learned previously and test them.
then begin with proper breathing technique exercises, the cornerstone of all vocals. We move on to vocal exercises to condition the voice. Then we work on the songs that you are eager to sing!

I will use a piano when doing vocal warm ups and conditioning exercises. Students that play other instruments and accompany themselves when performing (such as a guitar) are encouraged to bring that instrument to their lessons. My goal is for them to gain the knowledge that they need to help reach their artistic goals.
With all my lessons every student will be taught a basic run down of Music Theory. My students will always progress in what they do. They will have the discipline that they need and yet have fun and be filled with inspiration. Which is the most important thing, to be Inspired to do better.

*** Studio Equipment ***
iMac, condensing mic...performing mic, keyboard, mixer...living room of apartment.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I do have a portable keyboard. Though I do expect the student to have their own recording device and karaoke tracks. At Home I do have a studio, and if the students has an iPod or an Mp3 player I can attach it to a device where all of us can hear the tracks. I do have a recording studio as well.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Musical Theatre, and Pop rock genres. When I teach my students I always have them learn a song of another language whether it's Spanish or Japanese. It helps with diction when they learn a song outside the English Language. Also It helps them to learn another Language at the same time. Also I give them a little anatomy class when they are learning how to sing. I give them a model of the vocal Chords and different areas of the Larynx and which part works for the chest voice and the head voice.

​Your Accent/Dialect/Regionalism are shaping who you are. It is not wrong. Your first language/regionalism is your heart language. However, would you like to add "Standard American (Euphonic Neutral)" as an option? During a session with me, you will find where we create sounds to speak Standard American English without mimicking anyone! And it is fun! 

About Mao
www.maoygray.com

Certified Practitioner of The Lessac Voice and Movement Institute and a candidate for certification.

I own the business license as voice/acting/accent modification coach from City of Los Angeles.

I have experience teaching clients from many cultural backgrounds, including ESL who struggle to melt into the classes and to think in English. I am effective at diagnosing what they need to work on and helping them to achieve their goals. I will bring my energy to the session and encourage clients to share their questions, to express themselves, to respect each other, to work harder and to love language deeply. 
My lessons are designed with diverse groups of clients in mind because Los Angeles is a huge cultural melting pot. I will share with international clients how to feel the American energy as themselves witho
ut mimicking people through their daily lives. American clients will reconnect with their roots through the exploration.

I know English is challenging especially to those who don't speak it at all, or have it as a secondary language. I am here to help you learn the ropes. Not only write or speak English, but even use it in everyday conversation. I might be young, but I have plenty of experience teaching people who don't speak English proficiently, especially since they came from another country. Let me tell you though. Anybody can become good at English, and from my former students. They would choose me over professional English tutors or Professors, because unlike them I do not tell you, you have to learn like a pro or change your accent. If these people can become pros at English. Why not you too? One thing every fluent English speaker will never tell you is that they began speaking at a beginner's level just like you. If they can do it I'm sure you can too. Once again I am Danschnieder, call me Dan for short and hope to see you all.

About Danschnieder
Hello my name is Danschneider. I cannot wait to meet all of you. I have been teaching chess, singing, English, algebra, and basic Math since 2002. I am more than happy to teach in-home, or in-studio to anyone. I have been a martial arts practitioner since the age 15, in different martial arts reigning from Hung Gar kung fu, Karate, and my specialty the Filipino martial art of Eskrima. I have years of experience teaching drawing from basic line drawing, to shading, coloring, etc.. I write my own original poems. I have been working with two non- profit groups such as KIWANIS and S.I.P.A. Under KIWANIS I became more in tuned with different kinds of people.I'm also very good with the children and teens. S.I.P.A. was a program where I worked with children from ages 6-12. I might not be a parent, but I know how to keep the kids enthusiastic and
cheerful . I am willing to teach and work with anyone.

As a non-native speaker of English, I struggled to learn the English Language on my own. It was very difficult; however, with hard work and persistence, I managed to learn the language and became proficient at it. Furthermore, my experience in language acquisition led me to tutor students from various non-English speaking countries with difficulties in pronunciation, reading and writing, while pursuing my BA and MA at Brooklyn College University. I rose from my position as Tutor to a Master Tutor/Professor's Assistant. One of the biggest rewards to me is to be able to give back by making other's journey into language acquisition as easy and effective as possible.

About Catalina
Loving what I do is what makes me an effective and popular Spanish Teacher/Tutor. As a Native Speaker of the target language, I had to learn English. Having had that experience, has helped me to relate to the difficulty involved in language acquisition and to become more compassionate with my students and their needs.
I have been teaching / tutoring successfully for over 15 years now. I have worked with students from elementary school - college level ( Undergrad/Grad). I have a Certificate in AP Spanish Literature, which is the highest level of High School Spanish. I have also worked with adults who wanted to increase their knowledge of the language and culture for both leisure and business reasons.
Keeping in mind the needs and goals of my students, each class is designed to cater to the individual's needs. !Buena Suerte con su
aprendizaje del idioma!

Glenn is a wonderful instructor. His work with our 15 year old daughter, who's a 3rd year French student, has been extremely helpful as he provides a richer, more enjoyable learning experience. She has gained so much from his patience and dedication to the finer points of the language, which has made a notable difference in the classroom. Thanks so much!!

My background as a teacher of ESL is extensive. I taught technical English to engineering students at the university (MEPhI) for 8 years. Additionally I have been preparing Russian students for the English State Exam at school and adults for business and private trips to English speaking countries.
As a philologist I am able to pinpoint individual issues and difficulties to help correct problems in language acquisition.

About Tatiana
I am a former German professor from Russia who currently lives in America and tutors full time now Russian and German.

I provide a variety of activities for my lessons so you will never get bored. For example, I will use games, interactive conversational lessons, fun warm up tasks, case studies, and even riddles. We will use authentic materials as well. You will learn conversational skills, formal writing skills, and test taking strategies all in a fun manner.

I have a background as as an experienced lecturer, teacher, and tutor in the field of linguistics (general linguistics, history of linguistics, psycolinguistics, social linguistics, gender studies). Since defending my dissertation, I have continued to do research in gender studies in the field of virtual communication and digital text, especially non-verbal communication, soci
al networks and gender-specific communication. However, I have found that my true passion is helping students in one-on-one lessons.

Teaching ESL for several years now I've learned (as a teacher) that learning another language should not be boring but it does take time and daily practice. So, I like to focus on the student's specific needs and interests not to everyone! {:

About Alexandra
Greetings!, Hello!, Hi!, Hey!

I've been teaching English and ESL since 2000 and taught all ages from kids to adults. Two incredible experiences were teaching in Eritrea, E. Africa and Guatemala, C. America. Not only do I enjoy making grammar and conversation accessible to all students, but my goal is to help students to become fluent and obtain the skills to have both professional and social conversations.

Most importantly, I love teaching and helping students get on their own path of "the love of learning"!

ESL is a matter of sharing life lessons. Students already possess their own special talents and are full of life experiences from their L1 learnings. I will teach English as an L2 tool by sharing my life experiences, thereby making your life that much richer in language. In this day and age with texting and digital communication, the "Art of Communication" has been lost. My desire is to enthusiastically share my experiences in this lost art. Coming out of my lessons, students will have the confidence in their ability to express themselves comfortably within the American culture.

About John
Hi, my name is John Kim, and I am an experienced native American English teacher. I am a retired US Army Lieutenant Colonel with American diplomatic certifications in Japan and Korea. I have taught myself to be proficient in 5 languages. I taught Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced TOEFL English levels formally in school classrooms of 10-17 students. And of course, 1-on-1 private lessons also. You know that the four dreaded skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking are required in English schools, and you have already heard it over and over in your previous school lessons. Now, let me show you and share with you a different level of learning...called the "Art of Communication".
