About Katie
I have been teaching young students piano for seven years. I have completed my education for a music education degree, and am the former president of the Cal State Piano Society. I have been playing piano for nineteen years and love every aspect of music. My goal is to pass my passion for music onto my students, and allow them to develop a deep appreciation and understanding for all genres.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a strong believer in making the learning process fun and enjoyable. I want my students to be motivated to learn and practice as much as possible. My teaching style consists of starting with the basics (technique, theory, and reading music) then graduating to style and phrasing. My students will always leave our lessons feeling accomplished and confident. Learning an instrument is hard work, but with enough effort a
nd commitment, anything is possible!

*** How Long of a Lesson? ***
For very young beginners, I recommend 15 minutes. For beginners, I recommend 30 minutes. For intermediate, we can do 30 to 45 to 60 minutes. For advanced, you would benefit from 45 to 60 minutes. If you are beginner and want to have a 45 or 60 minute lesson, each lesson will focus on any of these categories: technique, repertoire, theory, ear training, and listening.

***Cancellation Policy***
Please notify me at least ONE HOUR before the lesson if you need to cancel to avoid charges. I may or may not be able to reschedule, and I will allow up to one month for a makeup lesson.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Baldwin Upright Piano
Various Piano Books
Metronome
Internet access for resources

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect all music students to provide a piano and the required materials (i.e. metronome and specific music books)

Tutoring: Please provide the class work, assignments, and projects for the subjects that need tutoring (if possible).

*** Specialties ***
I believe that technique is very important when it comes to piano. I start with teaching the basic scales, hand positions, and good posture. Then I begin teaching music theory, in which the student learns how to read notes, rhythms, dynamics, etc. Once the student becomes proficient in reading and technique, I give them more difficult pieces in order to work on style, voicing, and phrasing.

About Javier
Hola, cómo estás? I am a certified native teacher. I was born in Madrid, Spain (Europe), and I live in California since 2014.
I love teaching, and have all my life.
I have a lot of experience; I know how to teach Spanish in the best way, the mexican style or latin style as well.

With effective lessons, with patience and with speaking slowly and clearly. You will learn grammar, the best proper pronunciation, the differences of our languages, our expressions, slang, etc ... with a profesional tutor who knows exactly what is doing due to his academic preparation and experience.

You will be able to speak with great accent, emphasys, positions of the mouth ... and more options of the language that it is advasible to be taught by natives teachers.

We will learn by enjoying and practicing, through one to one conversation, exerci
ses, repetitions, movies, books, songs ...
By practicing with all these forms, you will feel success in a few classes.

Should be great as well to take lessons with 2 students. Works really good and it´s cheaper. The lessons are more fun because we can interact, so we will learn faster and better.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve excellence in your studies!

Nos vemos ! :) (See you guys)

Javier

I love teaching ASL so much for it is my passion. I am a fun ASL teacher and you will love how fast you learn ASL. Sign up now. You can find my youtube videos online. My background includes having deaf parents and daughters that are deaf so I have been using ASL all of my life as it's my first language and I am a CODA (child of deaf parents). I have taught k-12 deaf students for over 30 years. My favorite subject is teaching American Sign Language (all levels) and interpreting which I taught at the local college for over 20 years. I have lifetime teaching credentials for k-12 and community college. Presently, I interpret for the deaf free-lance. I have taught over 3000 students over my many years of teaching, it is my love.

M. Marie Roche conducted on the campus of U Mass eight seminars--open to all--on two of Shakespeare's history plays, King John and Richard II. Neither play is popular with modern Shakespeare-going audiences. But she accomplished the nearly impossible--making both plays compelling and relevant by her selection of background documents and themes. I hope that TakeLessons can provide an adequate platform for her level of sophistication.

About Belinda
I am a professional working artist and I am also an elementary piano teacher for an after school 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 and sculptures. 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 portraits.
Through research I have also learned that individuals benefit greatly from cre
ative freedom thus performing better in other academic subjects, learning healthy ways of expression, and 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 give me a call and let's get painting!

About Carolina
I am from Colombia, and I studied psychology at the University of "Santo Tomás de Aquino" in Bogotá, Colombia. I have worked in my private practice and I have been a teacher of sexual education in a college of Primary, Secondary and High School. I was a professor of integral "Development of the person" and "formation of values" in the University of Santo Tomas. I was working in Washington, D.C. as a psychologist for the Latino community in radio programs and research projects for the prevention of domestic violence.

I currently live in Florida with my husband and two teenage sons, and I teach Spanish to American and European people that they need to speak Spanish. I have a master's degree in Business Administration from Keiser University and I love to teach. That's why I got the certificate of substitute teacher to expand my knowledge of
the Spanish language.

I believe that my studies as a psychologist and business administration have allowed me to acquire a Spanish excellent in terms of writing and use of words elegant and correct to strike up a conversation with anyone, anywhere in the world where Spanish is spoken.

Students in my classes can enjoy talking to the universal Spanish vocabulary, with quick and easy to understand. I assure you that in a few months you will be able to have a conversation with Latino people and write letters.

I have written two books in Spanish and I have my web site in Spanish.

About Yuko
I was born and graduated college in Japan. After I worked there several years, I decided to come to the US to study more.

As a piano teacher, I specialize for beginners. When you start playing, everybody realizes that your fingers don’t move as fast as you want to which is very normal. We are going to work on slowly in a fun way. I have taught from 3 years to 70 years old. Everyone can enjoy the piano anytime!!!

As a Japanese teacher, I will explain Japanese with cultural backgrounds so you can understand better. I can do both teaching and tutoring. Your goal is my goal. I would love to tailor the lessons whatever you are looking for.

About Wyatt
I am an experienced Spanish teacher who just moved to the NYC area to start grad school in the fall. I have taught middle school Spanish in the Boston area for the past 5 years, but have experience in classrooms and tutoring young kids, teenagers and adults. I have both presented work at teaching conferences and published in the field of language teaching.
I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis (WashU) in 2010 with a major in Spanish. I've lived for 3 academic years in Spain, and have also spent significant amounts of time in Mexico, Costa Rica, Chile and Perú.
My preference is to make lessons conversational, practical and personal. I strongly believe that a language, like any skill, is best learned THROUGH DOING IT (as opposed to learning about it in a textbook). That said, I am always happy to cater to your specific inter
ests and needs.
