I’m completely bi-lingual. Raised in Mexico. Spanish Literature was a secondary subject throughout my three musical degrees. I’ve been a Spanish Diction for Los Ángeles Ópera for four of their productions.
I can help with pronunciation and advanced conversation.

Meeting John was great, very friendly and professional and to the point, which is my cap of tea and he suggested to get a weighted keys piano to strengthen my fingers, I’m looking into one
Thanks John I will recommend you as a teacher

John is a fantastic instructor. He has a love for educating others on musical expression and he is a wellspring of musical knowledge. He provides a depth to the piano that I wouldn't have noticed if I taught myself how to play.

John emphasized how to shape musical phrases to make music as opposed to a collection of notes. He had a good ear for honing in on my weaknesses such as how some notes that I played stuck out or the movement of my arms. Most importantly, he taught me how to approach practicing the piano in an effective way. I learned how to listen to myself and how give each note, phrase, and piece the attention and musicality it needed to sound beautifully.

For an adult learner as myself, he was accommodating with how busy I was. He adjusted to my needs and work schedule and taught at a reasonable pace. However, he also never veered from his expectations and praised what I was doing right and provided methods to fix what I was doing wrong.

Although there were times when John expressed his passion for music by delving into tangents on the broader historical significance of pieces, his mini-lectures were never irrelevant nor inappropriate. For example, he commented on how in waltzes, the rhythm on the left hand would need to emulate how a Romantic era string section would play it. For anyone who is serious about how or why pieces of music are meant to be played in a certain way, John is great about contextualizing pieces to make them sound great.

Most importantly, he made practicing piano something that was both enjoyable and challenging, which is difficult to find in a teacher. I owe a great deal of my musicianship to John and he met my expectations of learning the piano. Thank you!
Kenny
John is really great. He takes the time to understand what your goals are and teaches according to your needs. He is patient and provides constructive comments.

Raised in largely bilingual household. B.A. in Spanish from UW (cum laude). English fluency slightly stronger. Extremely high level Spanish proficiency although the minutiae within humor can sometimes be lost. Excellent for those who need help with pronunciation, grammar (clarification of grammatical rules like the difference between a direct object and an indirect object, etc.), conjugation, and conversation.

About David

Many years of drum instruction with students who have learned best with alternative learner-centered approaches including: extreme patience, slow to fast repetition of patterns and exercises, focused breathing, as well as sight-reading, rhythm and ear training.

DAVID IS AN OUTSTANDING TEACHER IN EVERY RESPECT. HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH SEEMS EXCELLENT, AND HIS INTEREST IN THIS LANGUAGE IS CLEARLY VERY STRONG. THIS ALLOWS CLOSE ANALYSIS OF SPANISH, AND STANDS AS A SIGNIFICANT BENEFIT TO THE DIDACTIC PROCESS. IN TURN THIS PROMOTES A SPIRIT OF LEARNING IN CLASS WHICH IS INFORMATIVE AND GOOD FUN. FINALLY HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH/ENGLISH COGNATES AND INDO-EUROPEAN ROOTS IS UNUSUALLY BROAD, WHICH MAKES LEARNING SPANISH WITH HIM EASY AND ENTERTAINING. I BELIEVE DAVID HAS A TRUE VOCATION FOR TEACHING, AND I HOPE I CAN GO ON WITH LESSONS WITH HIM FOR SOME TIME TO COME.

My name is Angie and I am a native Spanish speaker from Colombia, a business administrator and Spanish tutor in my home country. I have been tutoring since 2018 with exchange students from the United States and Canada who were studying at my university.
The way I teach Spanish is informative and fun with theory and practice at the same time. I work according to the student's needs, if they want to learn Spanish to travel, work, study, etc. I'm offering free trials so we can get to know each other and make sure we feel comfortable.
Regarding the study material, I offer two options: the first is that I send the necessary material for each class (books, texts, etc.) Or I can work with the book that the student wants.
My schedule is quite flexible. I work in the mornings, afternoons, or evenings during the week and on the weekends. I work according to the time available to my students.
I know how it is to start learning a new language and I know how difficult it can be, but with ...

I have been speaking Spanish conversationally and reading/listening to stories for over four years now, with more sparse experience in the past (high school, etc.). My wife and her family are native Spanish speakers, so I have deeply enriched my Spanish language knowledge these past years. In lessons with me, we'll cover pronunciation, grammar, syntax, and colloquialisms common to Spanish spoken in Mexico.

I teach in a way that is as focused on the grammar as you want to be. I prefer conversational classes, but for many in traditional classes it is the grammar that they are not understanding.

I am a native Spanish speaker and can speak, read, and write Spanish fluently. I use the Berlitz method to teach Spanish, and I can provide my students with hand outs so that they can understand and practice their skills fully as they go along. Spanish students of all ages and levels are welcome, from beginners to advanced students. At the end of each class, we will have a short conversation session to practice the skills you learned in class. so you will know exactly how to use your new skills.
