Whether you need copy-editing of your professional document, better pronunciation, or simply to reduce your accent, and sound more 'American', I am well able to help you!

About Stephanie
I am a career musician, and conservatory trained violin, piano and vocal instructor with over 40 years teaching experience, and a resume spanning many pages. I also am a well endorsed composer and public speaker. Furthermore, I LOVE teaching! I am a competition judge, member of National Music Teachers Association, and Suzuki Association of the Americas. I have proven results, as documented on my students YouTube channel. With my instruction, you will learn quickly and most importantly, correctly, saving you time and resources as you reach your musical goals. Fact: One of the only activities that activates, stimulates, and uses the entire brain is music, so let's get started!

Some people have difficulty reaching a teachers' studio. For this reason, I have perfected my ability to teach via Skype or FaceTime. It is an advantage f
or my students to be instructed by a quality teacher. It's worth a try, isn't it?

Please note: I only accept weekly lesson students. Also, due to my performances, I'm not always able to this calendar up to date....so when you request a lesson time, allow me to communicate with you, if we need to adjust it a bit. It almost always works out if you don't mind doing that.

*** Lesson Details ***
All the students on my Student YouTube channel who have studied under three years, are practicing 2 hours a week, and you will have a similar result. That's 20 minutes a day, 6 days a week. Students under 5 practice about 5-10 minutes a day.

Please have an assignment book that lies flat, and keep it next to your music books as you practice between lessons. My instructions are very detailed to insure your best progress.

Studio Equipment
For on-line lessons, you will need a quiet place, and please test your sound and video prior to beginning of lesson. For students under 13 or so, do have a parent or caregiver taking notes while we work together.

Specialties
I have much experience with various learning styles, and in fact, am featured in a documentary made of one of my autistic students.

Stephanie is s fantastic teacher! My daughter has thrived and grown like never before. When she wants to push her she expresses complete confidence. This builds my daughters confidence and she flourishes! She is in love again with piano! We drive an hour every week and it is worth it. If you are looking for an experienced teacher who loves to teach Stephanie is the one to go to.

Currently, I tutor students from different countries, including Colombia, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Korea, and Peru to help them in college and business. In Peru and Mexico, I taught ESL full-time to adults, college students, and high school students. The classes ranged from basic English where the students had little to no English experience to advanced business conversation among nearly fluent ESL speakers.

About Jackie
Hi! My name is Jackie, and I have nearly 20 years of experience in teaching. All of my students, meaning a perfect 100%, have improved their grades by at least one letter grade, if not more, and passed every one of their tests and exams. I help all my students reach their goals.

The feedback I often receive from my students is that I made learning an enjoyable experience—they want to work harder to advance quickly in their classes. All of my students agree that I have a lot of patience and turn even the most challenging lessons into ones of positivity and encouragement. I provide critical feedback in the most constructive of ways that help the students reach conclusions on their own. I enjoy being there to support and guide their experience.

Basically, I love teaching. I'm enthusiastic yet patient, and I absolutely adore helping kid
s and adults alike learn. It's such a sense of accomplishment when my students show off their terrific grades. I see the same look in my students’ eyes regardless of age—that pride that shines from within, that exuberant smile, like they can conquer anything. I want my students to keep that pride for a long, long time.

Right now, I’m working on self-publishing a Spanish conversation textbook for beginning students and am writing an intermediate-level Spanish conversation textbook. I've also written several academic articles published online. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy traveling, playing with my cat, and swimming.

I have experience working with students with learning differences, and have worked with children and adults.

I love teaching, but I hate boring classes, so I always try to do different things to get the goal, which is learning. I also try to keep focus in what the student wants with class, be able to communicate, or improve grammar, writting, everyone is different, learn different and also want different things.

I am very patient and fun. I teach just like I would like to be taught with as much information as possible.

About Stephanie
Hello!

My name is Stephanie. I have always had a passion for teaching ever since I was a little girl. I was always teaching my siblings everything, helping them with their homework, being their own personal teacher, they came to me with anything. I am a fluent Spanish speaker, both of my parents are from Guatemala. Although they only ever spoke to us in Spanish, we spoke to them in English, so it became difficult understanding each other. But, that is how we both taught each other the language, I taught them English and they taught me Spanish.

l love to teach, and I hope I can give you that positive experience!

I am a native Spanish speaker. And it took 4 years to learn English but I figured out how much easier i can teach people vs how it was taught to me. I've been teaching English for 9 yrs now to friends and family.

About Genesis
Hello all! I'm so excited to be teaching English! My first language is Spanish and I have a passion for teaching all people English because i know it is so HARD! it took me 4 yrs to be fluent when I first came to the states and it was a hard 4 years because I missed alot of other basic skills in the time it took to learn English. I have a method I now use and I believe it is much easier than how I was taught!

Want to speak the Queen's English without all of the pomp and circumstance? I can help you with that! I bring over 20 years of experience teaching ESL, academic, and business English for those ambitious minded who want to get ahead. I also teach beginners and those who want to improve for personal reasons or travel to English speaking countries without feeling self-conscious or lost. But, I bring a lot of humor and fun to the lessons in an effort to help the student relax and not worry about making mistakes. The idea is to learn without feeling stressed or forced to do so. I begin by having a simple conversation with the student, asking them about their goals, their achievements, their hobbies ... just get them talking. That's what it's all about - right? - communicating!! This way I can assess the student without them feeling studied. From this initial lesson I have a good idea about their needs and design a curriculum to get the ball rolling. I discuss my ideas with each student ...

About Isaac
Every one of my students say it's fun to have lessons with me! They learn the best English and have fun while doing it. I am disciplined. know my craft, have over 20 years experience and understand the difficulties of learning a new language. I took French courses in high school, at Indiana University where I received my B.A. in English, and in NYC at the Alliance Francais and with private teachers. I also learned German while teaching dance and performing as a singer/dancer in Munich, Germany without the benefit of any formal instruction. I fully understand what language learners go through. physically , mentally, and emotionally. I am, also, an excellent writer and enjoy teaching the skill to students. I have helped a young Russian businessman, transplanted to Mannheim, Germany, who would barely open his mouth during lessons and knew p
recious little about sentence structure, learn to speak and write well enough to make a 5/6 test score on his GMAT. I helped a Spanish student speak well enough to get a new IT job with Adidas at their home base in Germany. I helped a young, 16 year old, Japanese student, transplanted to Holland, improve his English so that he was able to pass his proficiency tests with flying colors. And we all had a great time getting there! I love teaching and I love working with students who want to be taught!!

A friend recommended Isaac as an English teacher two years ago. We've been working together since then, and thanks to Isaac, I've made significant progress with my English. With his experience, Isaac quickly recognizes the needs of the students and approaches them purposefully and very professionally. Thinking of the advances I could make with Isaac, it is now possible for me to start a job in an international company.

During many years of cooperation, I have not only found a good teacher in Isaac, but also a good friend!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Isaac for the excellent cooperation.
