An immersive, cultural experience that will allow the student to experience Spanish as native speakers do.
Hello there, future string players and welcome to my profile!!
I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and raised in Miami, FL. I started my musical career at the age of 8, singing in chorus, playing the recorder, and shortly afterwards moving to the guitar, and the violin.
When I was 15, I was nominated for a James L. Knight Award in Music, and I performed as a violin soloist with the Miami Beach Symphony Orchestra, and the Greater Miami Youth Symphony playing Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 3 in G major. One of my most memorable experiences when I was a kid! In high school, I formed my own string quartet and we would perform all over the South Florida community especially at hospitals and for the elderly. At 16 years old, I was also given an internship with the New World Symphony, conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas, for about 2
years. During this time, I was able to take lessons from master violinists such as Marc Thayer and Glen Cherry. During this time, I was given the opportunity to perform with the New World Symphony at 17 years old for pops concert conducted and performed by Chuck Mangione in El Doral, FL.
I later on accepted a scholarship for violin performance at the University of Miami for my Bachelor of Music, and earned my Master of Music from Florida State University. I also taught string orchestras for 10 years at Ruth K. Broad Bay Harbor K-8 Center, South Florida Youth Symphony as conductor (and now composer!), and conductor of the Greater Miami Youth Symphony. I was appointed Assistant Conductor of the Alhambra Orchestra for two seasons under the guidance of my high school orchestra teacher, Mr. Reginald Nicholson (1947-2011). It was here where I was able to work on my compositions, orchestrations, and conduct a fine group of musicians.
I now live in sunny Los Angeles, in the Sherman Oaks area, and I'm loving the new change. I am eager to share my knowledge with new students on various subjects such as learning a string instrument to learning a different language. Please feel free to ask me any questions.
I am looking forward to getting to know you and your goals for learning! ____________________________________________________
LESSON DETAILS I have been teaching music as an adult, certified teacher since I was in college, but have done teaching as early as 15 years old.
I will help you create a fantastic technical base so you will be able to play with ease as your skill level develops, all while keeping the lessons fun and engaging.
MUSIC STUDIO Piano, Violin, Guitar, Music Stand, General Teaching Aids, Recording Equipment.
TRAVEL EQUIPMENT I can provide a music stand and basic materials but the student is expected to have their own instruments and to buy the music I recommend. I can recommend various vendors/shops where you can buy the ideal instrument for your lessons.
EXPERTISE I am classically-trained musician that also specializes in Tango performance, Latin/Jazz, Rock, and a variety of other styles. I believe that training in the classical aesthetic will create a firm, solid foundation to crossover into other areas listed above. With a good dose of technical exercises, scales, and a variety of repertoire, my students always turn out well-rounded, ready to tackle almost any kind of music they wish to learn.
Thank you for stopping by and let me know what you would like to learn!
Amazing lessons! Nicolas is methodical in his teaching and shows patience, dedication, and a kind heart. My 10 year-old daughter loves her lessons. I highly recommend him!

One the best intructors I’ve had in years! Nick really knows his music theory, orchestration, and compositional techniques. He’s helped me appreciate the intricacies of creating music for myself and others. He challenges me to do my very best. Thank you, Nick!

Nick is the perfect balance of dedicated teacher and incredible human being. Our 9 year old son loves his violin lessons with him. We are delighted we found him! Thank you, Nick!
From my lessons, students will gain engaging and exciting instruction. Students will use Spanish every time we meet. My aim is to help you meet your goals and help you enjoy it along the way!
My name is Jimmy. I have been teaching Spanish for about seven years now. I have taught all ages from kindergarten to adults.
As a current teacher, my primary goal is to make sure the students have engaging and fun experiences while learning Spanish. I do not lecture solely on the nuts and bolts of the language but rather allow the student to perform the language in order to learn it.
I do want to make clear that I do teach young children (ages 2-12) but I prefer to teach them in person and at least twice a week. I believe the experience to be more valuable that way.
Additionally, I ask that parents or potential adult students and with me talk for a while before signing up for lessons. I may not be able the person to give you what you need. I want to be sure your needs are met through Take Lessons and I may not be the person th
at can do that. So, please message me often.
One last note: If we are meeting in person, I am only willing to meet in public locations and not anyone's home.
I am always excited to teach someone this language I love so much.
I want to become a spanish tutor because I want to help others,transmit my knowledge and improve students communication skills. I also do think tutoring improves creativity and independence. Motivates self-paced and self-directed learning and fosters self esteem and self confidence. As a native speaker i will be an example of what life is like in Sout America and evaluate from a native perspective.
About Maria Carolina
Hola estudiantes! I am a native Spanish speaker born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I attended the University of Buenos Aires and received my bachelor’s degree in Human Resources from that institution. I have been teaching spanish in the US for more than 6 years !! I worked as a Human Resources Generalist and in charge of Recruitment processes in an very important and prestigious US Government entity. I have been speaking English throughout my entire life and have fluent command in reading, writing, listening and speaking the English language. Furthermore, my past position in a US Government entity in Buenos Aires and my experience here in the United States have developed my knowledge and understanding of American culture and communication. Both the Spanish language and Latin culture are becoming more present in the United State
s. I truly love my culture and my language, so the opportunity to teach them to other people who are from a different background excites me. Since I am from Argentina, I will offer a unique perspective to the students on what life is like in South America. I will serve as an example for what it is like to listen to a native speaker and I will be able to evaluate student’s speech from the viewpoint of a native speaker. I have a great appreciation for American culture and have several years of experience working with American teenagers and adults while working at the US Government entity in Buenos Aires. I managed the Internship Program which gave students an opportunity to gain work experience and improved their Spanish skills like comprehension, reasoning, understanding , writing and speaking. They really enjoyed having their latin american experience. Since my husband is American , I have been teaching him for almost six years and he is making progress. He is very happy and very excited in learning new words, expressions and idiomas and he is working very hard to become fluent in Spanish I love to be a spanish tutor because I like to help others, transmit my knowledge and improve students communication skills. I also do think tutoring improves creativity and independence. Tutoring provides greater congruence between teacher and learner, improves academic performance and personal growth. Motivates self-paced and self-directed learning and fosters self esteem and self confidence. I am very a passionate and hard working person and i believe that being a tutor in Spanish is a very rewarding and interesting experience for me and for my students. I am very patient, a good listener and I want to generate a relaxing teaching and learning environment and also create and keep a good and professional relationship with students. I can teach spanish for beginners. intermediate and advanced students. I can help with a simple homework, preparation for an exam and also teach and improve writing, reading, listening and speaking skills. I am willing to teach to either young people or adults. I am very excited and happy to be a tutor and i am looking forward to hearing and meeting you and starting to teach and learn about the amazing Spanish language and latinamerican culture. Should you have any concern about my education and work experience, I can provide supporting documents ( certification of services, bachelors degree certificate, green card resumes, evaluations, etc).
Muchas gracias y espero que se comuniquen conmigo !
I can help you with conversational Spanish for either business or pleasure, or I can help your child with his / her grammar and Spanish homework.
I modify the classes according to students needs. I have many years of experience teaching this beautiful language.
Contact me...you won't be disappointed!! :)
I'm a Spanish professor and tutor. I received my Masters degree in Spanish/Education in 1999. I have been teaching Spanish at some local universities: USF, HCC and FSC for quite some time (20 yrs). I have also taught Middle School and High School.
I am an author of a Spanish grammar book for beginner students which it also includes 5 CD's. This book has been used in Continuing Education classes at USF and HCC. I also use it in my tutoring.
I love to teach Spanish and see that my students learn this beautiful language. Students say that I am very patient and explain Spanish concepts very clear - easy to understand.
I'll be happy to help you either in person or online.
Thank you, Millie
Ps: I'm not teaching elementary or middle school kids at this time.
I'm a native Spanish speaker who makes lessons fun!
Grace F. Loyola University New Orleans
I graduated with B.A. and M.A. degrees in Philosophy and Literature from University of Buenos Aires in Argentina. After moving to U.S. over 20 years ago, I completed my M.B.A. with emphasis in Finance from Loyola University New Orleans College of Business. I love teaching kids and have been tutoring Spanish, ESL, Homework Help and Study Skills for the last 10 years. I have also home schooled students in Elementary and Middle School. I was an elementary and middle school Spanish teacher for the Louisiana public school systems and I currently teach several subjects at Halstrom Academy. I have taught Spanish to English speakers and English to Spanish speakers, which gives me a thorough understanding of both languages. My approach consists of adapting my tutoring technique to the child’s learning styles
and needs. I have a “you CAN do it!” attitude and effectively communicate this to my students.
I have been teaching Spanish since 1973, when I was 20 years old. I did it for 10 years long (and still do) and I used so many methods that I finally came up with my own method to teach students of any age, any background and any motivation to learn a system that efficient, that will have you speak Spanish, and have a normal conversation from lesson one! I focus on verbs and practical conversation but no nonsense stories most books have. Books are only optional! And I am available also in between lessons and for as long as you need me in your lifetime with no retainer fees! The vocabulary is Latin American real life as you see it in the news! And best of all, I speak Spanish since I was 7 years old, when I used to live in Uruguay! I speak and teach 7 languages, soI know what is is to learn a foreign language and I know how to make it easier for you!
My name is Robert M. I have a Spanish Teaching Degree from The Netherlands and I started teaching since 1973. I also have an Associate Degree in Applied Arts in Advertising Design from the Art Institute of Houston. I combine art with any language to teach children up to 2nd grade to make it fun. For any other student, I use my innovative method without books, some sites in the net and we immediately start speaking the language the student wants to learn. But I still have the best books on demand if needed. I customize my lessons to the needs of my students and I am available 24/7 for any questions to make it as easy as possible for my students, no matter their age. I make learning fun and interesting for all my students because I love what I am doing!
Learning with me specializes in the beginner/intermediate Language student! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Learning Another language allows the brain to work differently than a normal brain. I believe knowing Several Languages can help aid the student more!
Everyone is a Student in My Opinion. I feel we can all learn Something Every day. Why not learn something you can use to make a higher income. I am still a student so I understand the Student Struggles while still being a Young Adult. I have a deep passion for teaching and learning new languages as well as new cultures.
Education is my life! I am a native of Spain and have an Executive master's degree. I am a Portuguese tutor, too (I was raised in Brazil). I can offer you my more than 25 years of experience teaching in a company environment, as a consultant and tutor for executives. I also teach in other fields, as in Sports clubs.
I have a successful more than 25 year career and definitely Language education has been essential to it! I am lucky to have lived in four countries and immersed in their culture by learning their languages! I have always taught in companies environment and as a tutor for executives. I am native of Spain and raised in Brasil. Besides Spanish, I also teach Portuguese for adults.
Learning a language like Spanish has tons of benefits, for adults and children alike. But how much should you expect to invest, if it's something you're serious about learning? There are few outlets for free Spanish lessons for beginners, but they're not always the best option. Books may provide vocabulary and grammar lessons, but you're missing out on hearing the language spoken. YouTube videos can be fun to watch, but you're missing out on that essential component of conversation with anot …
