She is very engaging, spent time connecting with my son, and made learning fun! She also shared strategies for him to use throughout the week to support his learning and engagement with the material. It’s been a great experience so far and we highly recommend!

I believe that learning languages should be fun! I grew up in a bilingual household and languages have always been a huge part of my life. I love sharing my passion with my students. I think it is important to tailor our time together to meet your goals, and to do it in a creative and flexible way. I also am a continual language learner, so I understand the struggle and am always finding new online tools to help the learning process. I've been tutoring and teaching English and Spanish for 10 years, and can't wait to work with you!

I've been writing and speaking Spanish fluently for around 10 years, and have been teaching for 6. My lessons are very grammar based and help the student learn quickly and effectively. I teach all ages and I would love to help you learn a new language!

Although my training is in classical music, most of my lessons consist of playing and singing modern so

Take lessons with a native Spanish speaker! I've been helping students reaching their Spanish goals for 12 years. I'm mostly experienced in adult learning (+40 years old students), from beginner up to advanced levels. I like to follow a communicative teaching approach, motivating students to interact in real situations, we are going to learn but also have fun! I specialize in grammatical and technical classes as well as conversational ones.

There’s nothing like the feeling of a good class, a class that was enjoyed by the teacher and the students, so I always try to create a bond between students so that classes are more customized. It also helps to develop confidence and promotes the use of Spanish in the class. It doesn’t matter the topic and the focus of the lesson, humor, laughter and little jokes are a must in all classes to break the ice and to make the class more pleasant.

I can't wait to get started!

Hola! My name is Sarah.

This is why I am not your typical Spanish Teacher: Most of you all are either taking Spanish in school or took Spanish in school. I was one of those High School Spanish teachers that taught 125 students a day. I felt helpless and frustrated. They made me teach only grammar, vocabulary and culture. No conversational skills at all. Yes, grammar and vocabulary are very important in learning a language, but so is speaking. After a while, I left the public school system and began teaching on my own. Now, I teach each and every student how to speak Spanish fluently. You all have your reasons for taking Spanish classes: To speak Spanish for work, speak Spanish for fun and travel, speak and understand Spanish to pass your school classes or perhaps you have younger children and you know that this is the best age to learn a new language. Every single one of my students is unique and different, and that is how I approach my lessons each week. We also talk a ...

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.
