About Enrique
I truly enjoy teaching and have many years of experience teaching students of all levels and ages.

I try to teach my students how important it is to listen to themselves play. When appropriate, I bring a guitar or bass (depending on the student's need) and help the student learn how drums relate to the rest of the music. I want all of my students to enjoy playing and to have music as a tool for life: one that helps them express themselves, think creatively, learn specific and technical skills, and grow musically. I believe all people can benefit from learning to play an instrument. If you or your child believe that music can provide a new way to find meaning and joy in life while learning a valuable skill, please contact me.

In addition, I have successfully taught many students who have had trouble in school due to lack of motivati
on and/or learning disabilities. Drum/percussion lessons have reawakened these discouraged students' desire to learn and I am happy to adjust my teaching style for any disabilities or difficulties a student may have. I am happy to provide references from parents whose children were struggling in other areas of life and who looked forward to a music lesson when all else seemed to be a chore.

More information: My recent recordings include top-selling Mexican pop artist Yuridia's newest album, Entre Mariposas, produced by his longtime collaborator Javier Calderon, and I have shared credits with Kenny Aronoff and James East.

Winner , San Diego Music Awards with the band Skelpin.

Percussionist of Manolito Gypsy (Gypsy Kings).

*** Lesson Details ***
Classes are 30, 45 or 60 minutes, depending on age and ability. I give lessons at your home or in my home studio.

I will start by talking to the student and/or parent about what the student would like to accomplish from the lessons and what, if any, musical background the student already has. It's OK if you don't have any experience at all.

The first class is when I focus on understanding how the student learns. Everyone learns differently and is motivated differently, so I make it a point to get to know what makes the student tick. During the first lesson, we will do some basic exercises so I can pinpoint where they are, and I'll assign skills to practice for the next class.

If the class is taught at my home studio, I record it for the student to refer to during the week. I assign exercises for every class, so please plan to practice at least 15 minutes per day while you are taking lessons.

Finally, I offer a recording opportunity for students who are writing songs and would like to learn recording skills. This is an option for advanced students, students who are looking to record a demo, or for young students who would like to preserve their new accomplishments on an audio file that can be given as a gift.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Roland TD-6 and Yamaha stage custom and acoustic drums. Full in-home studio. Machudo Cajons (Drum Box) Yamaha acoustic set, Sonar recording software,Box) Yamaha acoustic set, Sonar rec software,

*** Travel Equipment ***
Will bring appropriate lesson materials to your home and we will work together to get the right practice materials for you within your budget.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching Latin percussion instruments including the drum set, cajon (DrumBox), bongos, dumbek and congas.
Spanish Music for kids
Spanish:Lessons for teens and adults, Spanish Music Program(Learn Spanish with songs, music age 8-9)

Puedes hablar español? I grew up in Los Angeles, so I had it around me at all times. I finally was able to properly learn it when I moved to Quito, Ecuador, using my past knowledge of French to learn it on the go. I then traveled all around South America, and people tell me I have a pretty funky accent, which I love.

About Michelle
Hi! I'm Michelle, a world traveler/teacher who's here to help bring her experience and energy to students back home in California. I've taught various subjects such as test prep, English, history, and languages to students all over the world, such as China, France, and Ecuador. I've worked with students of all ages and love getting to know them to help figure out how they best learn.

I love learning languages in my spare time and practicing when I can. When I'm not looking a bit silly doing that, I'm usually reading, at a baseball game, hiking, or hanging out with friends. I keep active, making sure to run or climb a mountain when I can. However, it's equally as strong as my love for foods of all kinds.

I really look forward to getting to work with you and helping you with whatever I can!

About Sara T.

About my classes:

I strive to provide the best, most interactive online Spanish classes for every student. We will discuss your needs and obtainable goals so that I can personalize your course material in order to reach them.

If you need Spanish for a specific industry, such as healthcare, travel, academic purposes, relocation or business, I can prepare the necessary materials as well.

Additional information about my experience:

I have been teaching for 8 years and have taught hundreds of students. I have lived in Mexico and Central America and I have traveled extensively throughout many Spanish speaking countries. Combined with my education, qualifications, and teaching experience, living and traveling throughout Latin America has given me the opportunity to experience regional language differences and share that additional knowledge with my students.

Many of my students have gone on to travel, relocate or retire within Latin America, greatly improved their grades in ...

About Sara
I offer online classes in Spanish, English language (ESL/EFL), TOEFL exam prep and writing. I have taught students from age 3 to senior citizens. I have experience teaching in language centers, bilingual schools and in companies.

I have a TEFL diploma, TBE (Teacher of Business English) Certificate, BA in English Language Learner Studies with a minor in History and an MA in Teaching and Learning with Technology with a specialization as an online educator. Currently, I am pursuing my second MA degree in Curriculum and Instruction.

I begin with new student by identifying their priorities and then setting a SMART goal. Based on the timeline, I make an action plan that we follow so the student can see progress in each and every class. We reevaluate goals and materials as needed.

To make the online classes more interesting and effec
tive, we will use slides to collaborate on the materials together. This allows us to communicate in real time and the information is saved to the drive, so it is easily accessible from any computer, smartphone or tablet.

We can import images, verb charts, worksheets, PDF and doc files, ebooks and videos as needed. Using the tools, you and I will both be able to edit, write and draw on the materials and add any additional notes, links or resources during or between classes.

Please don't hesitate to use the "Ask a question" feature to contact me with any special circumstances or concerns.

During lessons I will provide constant feedback and adjust lessons depending on your needs and level of understanding. Students have different learning styles so I will teach lessons that incorporate visual, verbal, and written teaching methods. Students can expect a professional, enthusiastic, and patient teacher that is serious about students learning the subjects material and also makes learning fun.

About Belinda
I am a professional working artist and I am also a site coordinator for an Expanded Learning program here in Riverside. I obtained a degree in Art Practice from UC Berkeley where I specialized in multimedia installations that included large scale paintings, sculptures, and original music/audio. Due to the versatility in my own work from large to very small scale paintings I have acquired techniques and skills for every scale in between.
I am a strong believer in self expression and visual literacy which gets stronger with the formulation of concepts one builds through inspiration for each painting. I enjoy teaching and learning what my students' interests are and what motivates them. I can help you learn specific skills for abstract paintings to detailed portraits.
Through research I have also learned that individua
ls benefit greatly from creative freedom thus performing better in other academic subjects, learning healthy ways of expression, and mentality feel fulfilled through the therapeutic effects of painting.
If you are looking to work with someone who loves what they do, who is patient, motivational, and can teach you basic to advanced skills in painting, drawing, music, and Spanish send me a message and we start your learning journey!

The first lesson went very well with my daughter. Belinda was methodical in her teaching and approached the lesson with my daughter’s interest in mind. During the lesson, Belinda was able to actively engage my daughter the whole time, and more importantly, her teaching revived my daughter’s interest in drawing. She has already devised future plans to have my daughter practice sketching noses, eyes, and ears so that my daughter may draw the human face later with more realistic details.

I am a native Spanish speaker originally from Argentina, but I have lived abroad for the last 15 years, and have traveled extensively in Europe, Asia, OZ, NZ, and South America, that’s why I know how hard it is to learn a second language.

I have a Bachelor of Education from Melbourne University and a TEFL certificate from ITTT and I have been teaching for 10 years: 4 in China, 1 in Japan, 1 in Korea, 1 in Thailand, 1 in Taiwan and 2 in South America. 6 of them at private schools, 2 at public schools and 2 as a private tutor. I speak and teach only neutral Spanish without any accent or slang.

My primary teaching method is space repetition and I supplement it with a lot of role plays, improvisation activities, and a student-centered approach, making sure that the teacher talking time is reduced to 20% of the of the class time, so the student is the one who gets the chance to speak at least 80% of the time.

The technique I use, (spaced repetition) it’s not fun but it works, I know because I have used it to teach myself Italian, German, Chinese, Japanese and Korean. I have several courses, like the one for travelers, where we learn everything we need to know to get by in South America or Spain: How to introduce ourselves, the numbers, how to ask for prices and buying things. Asking for directions, checking into a hotel, ordering a meal at a restaurant, taking a bus or taxi, and much more.

About Kimberley S.

Close

Come on this journey with me and learn Spanish. I promise you fun filled lessons every single session! I incorporate popular Latino music to help my students to remember what I taught when they hear a line. I promise to answer all your questions. Instead of viewing Spanish as a subject, let's go on a cultural ride together. Learn more than just a language. Learn a lifestyle. Become more marketable with a second language under your belt. And let us make that happen together.

About Kimberley
Hello!! Welcome to my profile. My name is Kimberley Smith and I am a Jamaican by birth. I speak Spanish as a second language (and currently practicing Korean as a third.) I am a language enthusiast and have been tutoring since 2016.

While learning Spanish I had my fair share of boring lessons that felt as though they dragged on and on. I make sure that whenever I teach my students are well engaged in the lesson and that they learn a few Spanish culture fact every week!

With me as your teacher you will stop saying "Spanish is hard ;-(" and say instead "Spanish is fun!! :-D". No matter how old or young you are you will feel comfortable as my student. I will answer all your questions and ensure that every single session we have together, you will leave with the confidence that you have learnt something new.

I spent some time in Cuba and
learnt a lot about Cuban culture and I communicated with ease with the Cuban nationals. I had only been in high school when I had that ability so trust me, If i could do it, you can do it too!!

Expect to be motivated and encouraged to do your absolute best.

I received distinguished awards during my course of study for excellence in Spanish. In the upcoming year I hope to pursue a Bachelor's degree in Spanish at the University of the West Indies - Ranked #5 in the Region.

My personal passion (outside of languages of course) is serving in the health care industry, helping the less fortunate as a Medical doctor (I haven't completed studies for this as yet but I am working towards it).

¡Hola!

If you're reading this, you're probably interested in learning Spanish, am I right? Let me tell you something about myself and how I could help you with that!

I am an English and Spanish teacher and translator. I have been teaching Spanish as a second language for a few years now and I love having the opportunity of helping people communicate in my native language, Spanish.

Helping with grammar, pronunciation and giving useful tips for a good communication experience are my favorite areas.

I love when students participate and are not afraid of making mistakes. After all, that’s how you learn a language!

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

¡Saludos!

Let's get started!

About Dorita C.

Close

Spanish lessons with me are unique due to the fact that I not only did score too high on my placement test at the university, I was able to learn it swiftly because it is similar to Portuguese (my primary language). I began learning Spanish when I was younger (elementary school) and I also listened to music in Spanish. I watched telenovelas (soaps), I would hear Spanish around me as I grew up. For example, whenever family friends would visit, we would visit them, we spoke over the phone, I took Spanish in high school. I currently interpret for others at work, I speak Spanish with my Spanish speaking coworkers, I speak with my Spanish speaking friends, etc. I will make learning it fun!

About Dorita
Olá (hello), My name is Dorita. My primary language is Portuguese. I also speak English obviously (lol), and Spanish. I am from a Portuguese speaking country, I will let you guess which one during the lesson! I look forward to having fun teaching you! Don't worry about mistakes and asking questions, that is what I am here for. To teach. Hope you enjoy!!
Nós vemos em breve (see you soon)!
