Spanish is my second language. My mother was a Spanish teacher in the elementary school level and used music as an amazing resource for teaching Spanish to kids. I'll use the same techniques and ideas, as well as focusing on reading and writing the very romantic language.

About Olivia
I love to create. The way I'm most comfortable creating is through writing; whether it's a song, a short story, a poem or a script. Writing has always been the bass line in my life; the heartbeat.

Music and film are both passions of mine. I graduated from Berklee College of Music where I studied Songwriting and Music Therapy. I was pushed to my absolute limits lyrically and musically within these majors, and I am so grateful for it now that I'm on my own creative journey.

I have a great deal of experience, but I am also still learning. I think it is very important as a teacher to always be learning, especially through their students. Teaching these lessons is, of course, about progress and advancement - but also about enjoyment, confidence building and positive encouragement.

Awesome

Finding Olivia was no coincidence.My 11 year old daughter is so psyched when she has her lessons!
It is in Liv's home,just a 10 minute ride from where we live,it's warm,safe,and filled with talent.
The passion of music is everywhere you look,Daphne and Olivia are
Ike old souls that just jive together perfectly.
Daphne has gained confidence,a mentor,and a ton of fun,
I thought Daphne was on a short lived path,as kids often jump from one idea to the next,but I believe singing is something she will definitely peruse.
I am so pleased with Take Lessons and especially Olivia.

I have studied and traveled in Mexico and Spain. My hometown and Bay Area history are full of Spanish speakers, a great way to put my language skills to use. My students have improved their grades and found joy in learning a new language. I hope my practically-minded method will appeal to you. I have written and spoken extensively in Spanish. Poetry, research papers, music . . . Thanks for your interest, and please do not hesitate to contact me personally for more information. I hope to be able to meet your educational needs. Thank you.

About Lars
I began to teach guitar at 16 years of age. I have taught students from 7 to 60 years old in a wide variety of styles. From age 12 to 21 I took private guitar lessons regularly. Now I have a lesson every once in a while. I studied jazz guitar primarily with Randy Vincent, one of the San Francisco Bay Area's greatest guitar players. Aside from teaching lessons as a job, I have played guitar in many concerts and continue to do so. Before moving to San Francisco, I gained a lot of experience and valuable education with guitar. I played in the jazz bands in Junior High and High School. I went to four years of a week long summer jazz camp called jazz camp west where I took classes, played open mics and had fun with many musicians, making some good friends. I hold BA degrees in Music (Jazz Guitar) and Spanish, as well as an MA in Musi
c, from San Francisco State University. By now, I am confident in working with whatever musical material students offer! Thank you.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher, but I definitely expect students to practice what I suggest they practice. I advise that students use method books or sheet music of some sort, and I will certainly make notes for them and create materials they can learn from. I always teach based on the goals of the student and what type of music they enjoy, but I also like to guide the student in a direction I think would benefit them. I usually introduce music to play right away, conforming of course to the skill level and interest of the student. I now play seven-string guitar, which is just a six-string guitar (same tuning and technique) with an extra low string. It will be practical to aide students by accompanying with a bass range instrument.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar
I consider myself a Jazz musician, but I am happy to consider a very wide range of styles. I am focusing now on music of the Spanish Golden Age, 1500-1700.

Dan is a fantastic teacher. If you are looking for singing lessons you'll be hard pressed to find a better teacher.

When we started I thought that some people just can't sing and that I was one of those people. Not only did I not know how to sing, I had no idea how to *learn* to sing. Dan was super patient and I felt like he figured how I needed to learn just as much as what I needed to learn.

Singing is a life long journey, and I still have a long way to go, but the difference in my confidence and ability since working with Dan is like night and day. I recommend Dan highly.

There are many ways to cultivate your language skills whether it's visual, kinesthetic, or auditory. Let's find out which works best for you!

Most schools do not offer the flexibility in learning styles necessary for you to find your ideal way of processing new information, whether it be visual, auditorial, kinesthetic, memetic, right brain/left brain, etc.

That's why I'm here! I pride myself on working with each individual student on the subtle ways that they learn and form healthy habits. If you have any questions about my teaching styles or methods please ask!

A little more about me:

I have earned my Creative Writing Bachelors Degree from Louisiana State University which boasts one of the top Creative Writing Programs in the country! I studied Short Story Writing as well as Poetry Writing with teachers who have been published by Norton Anthology's for decades! Let's learn how to improve your writing together!

About Grant
Hello!

My name is Grant and I’ve been helping students grow for almost 10 years now! How time flies! I started playing music at the age of 9 and have been in love with it ever since, staying active in my local music scene as an instructor, performer, manager, and booking agent. I have also earned a degree in Creative Writing from Louisiana State University for all of the students wishing improve their writing skills!

In addition to freelance work, (weddings, jazz brunch gigs, etc.) I am the lead guitarist for the Funk/R&B band Water Seed and the soul project RetroFit. I attended Indiana University for jazz guitar and have studied under jazz greats Dan Miller, Corey Christiansen, and Oteil Burbridge.

I pride myself in taking a students learning needs and using that as my basis for their specific lesson plan, always on a case-by-c
ase basis, tailored to each individual student. Everyone is at a different waypoint on their path so why would I use a predetermined formula to try and help them, am I right? I am excited to meet and grow with every single one of you, let's learn to love the life we have and let our studies become radiant!

I teach all kinds of disciplines from guitar, mandolin, banjo, and clarinet, to creative writing, meditation, and even astrology. If you have any questions about my teaching methods, skill level in a certain discipline, or anything thing you can think of I would be more than happy to answer you!

Musically yours,
Grant

Immersive, intensive and interactive approach to Romance languages through folk music and acting and interacting in group set up or one to one.

I believe in learning while laughing and comparing to a better and faster understanding.

We can focus in English and Spanish or included other Romance languages like French, Italian and Portuguese or even all of them at the same time.
All these languages have a very similar root, just need to learn the different approach and in few sessions you will have an understanding of the whole Romance world.
Allowing and speeding the learning and the fluidity of your conversation exponentially.

About Veronica
Born in Spain I have lived in 8 different countries in Europe and America.
I live to compare and enrich my culture and share the knowledge with the world.

Beside comparing Romance languages to one another for better understanding and deeper learning we will be comparing between the different kind of Spanish on the globe.
So we will not only learn Castilian but a wider ranger of South American expression and idioms so we can be fully understood where ever we go!

Two years ago I was only fluent in English. Now, I can speak English and Spanish fluently, I can read and write in American Braille, and I am currently learning Italian. Each of my lessons will be tailored to you and your specific learning style. I will challenge you to learn more, but also help you along the way to make sure you don't feel discouraged. I look forward to working with you!

About Sara
I speak English, Spanish, a little Italian, and can read or write in American Braille. In high school I was in the top of my class, and took many AP and honors courses. I started college when I was 15 and am still currently pursing my target degree.
I have worked with many students (of all ages) to help them expand the knowledge of their target language, and help them learn specific language learning tools that will help them in the future.
I know that each student is different and his or her needs will be different when learning languages but I can help each student to their specific needs. Whether it be learning new vocabulary or learning conversation skills, I will tailor each lesson specifically to each person.
Although learning a new language is a daunting task, it can be fun and open you up to new culture and experiences you would
not otherwise get. My aim while tutoring you is to help you not only learn a language, but help you love the language that you use and be able to use it practically in everyday life.

I learned Spanish just like you. I know what the confusing parts are and can easily explain grammar topics in a way that makes sense from a learner's perspective! I studied Spanish for 6 years between high school and my time at USC. But it wasn't until I lived in Colombia for 2 years that my level of comfort with speaking sky-rocketed. I want to show you what worked for me. Once you get some vocabulary, there's more than just book-learning.

Hi, Everyone!

As you may know, my name is Jehivian, and I recently moved to Franklin, Tennessee. For the past year I was living in London doing a master's degree in Latin American Politics, and before that, I did a bachelors' degree in Political Science at the University of Puerto Rico. I am convinced that I am an excellent fit for you to learn a beautiful language as Spanish, or polish whatever you know at this point. One of the difficulties of learning this language is not just the complexities of its grammar, but the varieties of meaning one word can have across the different countries that speak Spanish. And as an expert on the region, I believe we can not only learn, from this experience, the language but its culture and politics (although it's not a politics class, however, through discussing topics concerning Latin America you can practice and better learn the language).
