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.

About Becca
As a certified Spanish teacher, I have been teaching since 2009. From Kindergarten students to adults, I have successfully taught a wide variety of students from various backgrounds. I have led full immersion classes for young children, taught in middle and high schools, and I have also tutored Lifelong Learning partner students at Westminster College. Throughout my years teaching, I have also instructed students with learning abilities and special needs. I currently teach at a local high school in South Hills, where I have taught levels 1 to AP Spanish 5.

In addition to my experience teaching Spanish, I also have 3 years of teaching ESL to Spanish speaking students in San Jose, Costa Rica. In Costa Rica, I taught in high schools as well as international businesses like Intel, HP, and DHL.

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.

I offer one-on-one tutoring for students learning conversational business English. If you need to prepare for a speech or meeting, have a document proofread, or want to learn more slang and conversational English for socializing, I can help!

I have a certificate for teaching ESL, and I also teach public speaking and voice strengthening. Each lesson is tailored to fit your individual goals and needs.

About Meredith
I believe that creativity is a positive force in our world.
It has the power to heal, validate, energize, and give meaning to both its giver and receiver. Music is one of the most beautiful forms of creativity that exists!

I'm a songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, and have taught private voice sessions for 10+ years.
I've written and recorded 4 studio albums of my own music, and collaborated with a number of other talented musicians, songwriters, DJs and producers in Los Angeles and New York. I've performed live in many venues in NYC and Los Angeles, and almost every state in between.

Our lessons are designed to not only help you improve your singing voice, but to help you become more confident as a performer, and more comfortable expressing yourself in a way that is uniquely YOU!
Whatever level you're at with singin
g, we can individualize your lessons to cover everything that's important to you. I believe in supporting and encouraging my students, and making our lessons a be a safe atmosphere for you to experiment, try new things, and not feel self-conscious about making mistakes.

My music experiences range from the world of film scoring in Los Angeles, to rock and pop studio collaborations, to performing live and touring, to behind-the-scenes work in digital music distribution. I also have a background in working with people who are differently abled, both individually and in groups, with singing, piano, guitar, instrument exploration, rhythm, and movement.

It's my joy to combine my passion and experience with the arts, in order to help others from all walks of life get connected with their own self-expression.

Here are some highlights of what you'll learn in our lessons:

-Learn how to keep your voice from tiring out or weakening
-Become more confident and relaxed with public presentations or performing
-Find versatility in your expression
-Work on enunciation
-Learn microphone techniques for singing or speaking
-Refine pitch and tone
-Increase your volume and dynamic control

-Learn where to place your voice in songwriting for the best musical arrangement

I do project pitches for my company at client sites and Meredith has been incredible at helping me refine my talking points, and has even consulted on my core offering, allowing me to reflect on what’s more important in my pitches, and has overall helped me feel more comfortable in how I’m communicating. I believe she has been responsible for me being able to land my most recent contract, which was huge! I highly recommend Meredith, she’s incredibly patient and understands why I do what I do, and directs me to communicate from that truth, which has helped me immensely!

Meredith is a joy to work with. She has a very relaxing energy at all times, which is key for proper singing technique. Furthermore, she's easy and flexible to work with and has experience across so many different music settings, genres, and skill sets, that you'll end up learning more than you'd bargained for every time.

I am an experienced ESL teacher currently teaching classes in the San Gabriel Valley. I received my Master's degree from USC in Teaching English to Students of Other Languages (TESOL). I have been teaching at my current school for over two years. The majority of my students are newly immigrated students preparing for college or university. I have successfully helped countless students transition from ESL classes to college level English classes, so I have no doubt that I can do the same for you!

About Timothy
I am offering a highly personalized tutoring program to help students learn English as a second language. I can help you with general ESL, academic English, or TOEFL based exams.
On top of teaching in the US, I have extensive overseas teaching experience abroad. I taught and tutored in South Korea and Hong Kong for four years. My time overseas was spent preparing students for high-stressed entrance exams and practical English for international business.

I am currently teaching ESL in Monterey Park in the mornings, so I am free to tutor in the afternoon and evenings. Typical tutoring sessions last 1.5 to 2 hours. I look forward to hearing from you!
