Because it was online I thought it would not be as good as in person. But, I was blown away by how engaging a teacher Mr. Mendez is! My child was very excited and motivated to keep playing and practicing.

Love this teacher
Raymond O.
Although Luis is a good teacher, he has difficulty keeping appointments. His home life interferes with his lessons. Every lesson we had needed rescheduled. Finally we agreed on Fridays and then he rescheduled that one. He doesn't give 24 hr notices as required. So great teacher, but no business organization.
Tim G.
I really appreciate Luis for the practice he's given me. We worked on lyric analyzation and flow. We focused on speeding up the meter to work harder in performing faster. I have become better with expressing my vocals in a volume where I can sing a long with the music bed. I highly recommend Luis for anyone who is working on improving their vocal training.

I have a Ph.D. in French from the Ohio State University with twenty years of teaching experience (private lessons, language institutions, and universities).
Since my childhood, I have always been fond of the French language and culture in such a way that French has become part of my identity. From the first day of preschool to the last day of high school, I studied at a French school.
I love teaching French. My teaching methodology depends on each of my students and their specific needs and goals in learning the French language. It is important to me to keep my students interested, motivated, and engaged while learning the language. I always try to assure that my students feel comfortable and confident in speaking French in a friendly and fun environment.

Mr. G goes over and above to help me pursue my interests. He helped me sing through a difficult time while my voice was changing. He supports me at performances and never fails to make me laugh. Working with him has been a fantastic experience and I feel that I have grown so much.

Great experience. I only stop because I chose to learn Spanish instead.
Tracey
I had my first lesson with Mohamed today and I loved it. Mohamed is nice, very patient, flexible, and understanding. I knew before I started lessons that I wanted to learn Egyptian Arabic. I chose Mohamed because he is from Egypt and it is his native language and also I saw how many great reviews he had on here. I am excited about learning arabic and look forward to continuing my lessons witn Mohamed. He really is an excellent teacher.

We really enjoyed having Marisol as our Spanish teacher. She made learning fun for my children and they learned so much. We had tried other teachers but found her to be the best prepared, reliable and fun.
Rachel
Marisol is a PHENOMENAL teacher! As an attorney who works with Spanish-speaking clients, I signed up for lessons mostly to improve my conversational fluidity and confidence. Marisol has helped me with that and so much more! She has helped fine-tune my understanding of advanced grammatical concepts. She has also introduced me to a wide range of new vocabulary, with an emphasis on vocabulary I might need for my job. Perhaps most importantly, Marisol is just plain fun to talk with! She is incredibly warm and engaging and creates an atmosphere where I never feel self-conscious. Lessons with Marisol are something I look forward to every week. I cannot recommend her more highly!

I am a native Spanish speaker from the Dominican Republic with an ELE (Spanish as a foreign language) teaching certificate and a bachelor of music education. I believe in a student centered approach to education and develop lessons based on the student's needs and goals. I will work with you so you can be exposed to the language and learn how to interact with it. Learning to communicate is key and I will encourage the student to speak as soon as possible rather than focus on grammar exercises.

"I have been taking lessons with Ana via SKYPE for over 4 months. My spanish has improved significantly over this time and was able to communicate confidently on recent extended trip to Spain. Ana takes a structured approach to the lessons and provides a clear understanding of the content with a great mix of in class learning and outside of class assignments. There has never been any issues with the connection speeds. / technology etc. Everything works great and the video calling is perfect for my schedule since I travel frequent on business. I had several other instructors over the past years, but have advanced more in a shorter period of time with Ana. Overall I highly recommend Ana."
