Informative and patient classes centered around students needs and requirements.

About Rene
Knowing at the age of 5 that music was my life, by being brought up surrounded by praise music and gospel, my early exposure to music helped me to find every Instrument and style just my thing! I wanted to play everything and learn all aspects of music. I started with singing in the children's choir and then developed into piano and music theory. At the age of 12 I began to learn classical guitar, and at 15 took on various styles like Flamenco, Jazz and Rock. I graduated from High School having played in the school band achieving recognition In national Institutions Like IAJE (International Association for Jazz Education) and state band finals. I was also composing from a very early age, and at 18 released my first album (self-titled) which can still be heard and purchased today through various music outlets, since i have released over 15
albums with various ensembles and bands. In college I already knew from my previous experience that I wanted to teach and pass on the joy that music brought to my life. I studied Music Theory and Jazz and finished my degree in Music Education. I have been teaching all in all for about 14 yrs. And I have enjoyed every minute I have spent with my students learning as much from them, as them from me. I am looking forward to meeting new and eager students who really want to bring their inner music out to share with the rest of us music aficionados! and develop their skills to the peak of their abilities.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching method ranges depending on the student. I believe in my experience that everyone learns differently, therefore everyone develops at their own pace. I try to find key strengths in each student and expose this to their advantage, using their abilities to further develop their skills, this method has shown the most promising results and students usually find themselves playing and performing just a couple of months after their first lessons. Part of my method involves a lot of performance and recital opportunities to help break any fears and inhibitions a student may bring with them. Music is about sharing, so an early exposure to this method helps to strengthen and stabilize a core acceptance of a students style and path, giving them and those close to them a very clear picture of their development and achievements.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Has all instruments at both his home and college studio

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson material, song charts and a progression scale. I require student to have an Instrument and recommended technique literature.

*** Specialties ***
My classical training began in High School with Influences in Segovia, and Romero I studied classical for 4 yrs. and trained in Jazz and Improvisation with performances In Big Band and group ensemble. Also sang and played in the school gospel choir.

****Personal Statement*****

If you needed a reason

There is no question that music touches us instantly and activates images, emotions and memories that linger with us throughout our lives. As a casual listener or an obsessive music elitist, there are times in our lives when we get blown away by a sound so unique our entire body vibrates and resonates with the touch of something out of this world. I can honestly say when this happens to me I feel as close to a spiritual connection than anything I have experienced otherwise. I believe it is these exact events that have triggered my need to be completely involved in the making, performing and consuming of music. The creative process, to me, is the single obvious reason we exist in this world. We create and share, learn and interpret, build on previous ideas and inspire others to perfect upon this process. It is no doubt a very humbling experience to realize you are part of it all. During this process you come to realize how important you are as an Individual, how there is no other vessel like you in this world, nor has there ever been or ever will. You are here now and your voice, your talent, your gift is an instrument to the great choir of the human spirit. No one but you can relate this, a reason to be, to create, to give.

I am a certified Spanish teacher. I have taught in the classroom for 5 years and online for two years. I have learned many different dialects of Spanish over the years, and I'm willing to learn more to teach my students. I use interactive activities, songs, videos, and movies to teach my students. We will also use different books.

Ms. Janai was the best tutor I have ever had. No matter the day, or time she was always there to help me out. Either it was math, science, writing, etc. she'd help me with every subject no matter how long it took for me to get it right, every subject was like her first nature. She was amazing teaching in person and just as good online. I've never met another tutor like Janai, she understands what you're going wrong and what your difficulties are, but she always manages to turn those difficulties around and make you better at understanding what you need to do better in order to succeed. If you're looking for an outstanding tutor Janai is the way to go!

I am highly skilled and qualified to teach all levels of Spanish after having taught high school Spanish for 18 years. With beginning students I begin with pronunciation and greetings, introductions and essential vocabulary and work in conjunction with the textbook they are using to practice and reinforce the concepts presented in the classroom. With the more advanced students we work on conversation, grammar, reading comprehension and refining all elements of the language. I tailor the lesson to fit each student's needs, interests/goals and any textbook they may be using.

About Joan
I have 18 years experience teaching high school Spanish and have lived and worked in Spain. I am a UC Berkeley graduate with a minor in Italian. My passion is the study of foreign languages. I have also studied French and Arabic and am able to understand the difficulties of language learning from both the student and teacher's perspective. I am adept at explaining concepts in a clear and concise manner and targeting the student's specific difficulties. Students have found my tutoring helpful in improving their performance on tests, increasing their ability to comprehend and respond in Spanish and/or developing conversational Spanish when traveling to a Spanish-speaking country. I can provide the student with useful classroom strategies and study skills to make language learning easy and fun at all levels.

With over 20 years of Spanish language study and 3+ years of living in Spanish speaking countries, I have the experience to deliver the results you want.

I know first hand the limitations of most Spanish classes taught in the United States. We learn vocabulary and how to pass a test, but we rarely practice speaking. That's why my classes focus on empowering students to shed their fear and actually speak Spanish.

Through unique lesson plans, catered to your needs, I use fun examples and memorable songs to create an environment that promotes quick and sustainable improvements to your Spanish proficiency.

See below or email me about group rates or a sample lesson plan.

About Mark
Hey everybody! Hola and Ni Hao. My name is Mark and I'm a Language Tutor, Yoga Instructor & Organic Farmer with an International MBA and minors in both Spanish and Mandarin. With over 20 years of foreign language study, and 10 years teaching foreign languages to others, I know exactly what works and what doesn't when it comes to learning a new language.

I recently moved to Aurora, CO in order to be closer to my family since I have spent the past 12 years traveling the world.

I am a certified K-12 substitute teacher in the state of Colorado, and will be teaching a Spanish immersion class for 3 months starting in January. I have the flexibility to work with you around your schedule and will create a customized lesson plan that fits your needs and unique learning methods.

My main requirement of you as a student is to be committ
ed and dedicated to learning the language we are studying and to work on the homework assignments I provide.

Hope to talk to you soon!

Mark

I am from Bogotá- Colombia and I am psychologist from Universidad Santo Tomás. I like to write e-books in Spanish and I love to teach spanish!

About Carolina
I am from Colombia, and I studied psychology at the University of "Santo Tomás de Aquino" in Bogotá, Colombia. I have worked in my private practice and I have been a teacher of sexual education in a college of Primary, Secondary and High School. I was a professor of integral "Development of the person" and "formation of values" in the University of Santo Tomas. I was working in Washington, D.C. as a psychologist for the Latino community in radio programs and research projects for the prevention of domestic violence.

I currently live in Florida with my husband and two teenage sons, and I teach Spanish to American and European people that they need to speak Spanish. I have a master's degree in Business Administration from Keiser University and I love to teach. That's why I got the certificate of substitute teacher to expand my knowledge of
the Spanish language.

I believe that my studies as a psychologist and business administration have allowed me to acquire a Spanish excellent in terms of writing and use of words elegant and correct to strike up a conversation with anyone, anywhere in the world where Spanish is spoken.

Students in my classes can enjoy talking to the universal Spanish vocabulary, with quick and easy to understand. I assure you that in a few months you will be able to have a conversation with Latino people and write letters.

I have written two books in Spanish and I have my web site in Spanish.
