I don't really teach by the book. I teach based on the student's circumstances. For instance, what is their motivation, what are their goals. These things help me to tailor a program based on their needs and preferences. And because I use their real life scenarios, this helps students progress quickly because they can then relate what their learning to what's going on in their real life.

As a native spanish speaker, and a lover of languages, I am always happy to unlock the code to a language and culture for my students. I have a minor in Spanish from the University of Miami and always make sure to tailor my lessons to my students' needs.
VOCAL COACH Rehabilitating and strengthening voices are two of my top specialties, and each lesson will have specific exercises tailored to helping you transform your voice into the highest and best version of your instrument. I work with singers signed to labels as well as the indie artist just starting to find his/her voice, style, and signature sound. My coaching approach incorporates some of the newest technologies that have shown extraordinary results in breaking down the inner blocks of each artist. It is a tremendously joyful and fulfilling experience to watch as my students really let their instrument shine brightly, boldly, and with an aboslutely stunning groundedness as they discover how powerful they truly are.
Poised, energized, and armed with unforgettable performance ability, Michelle G
. is a firework in the artistic arena. Her training began at the young age of 3 with the violin, and a few years later received classes for piano and voice. Excelling in all three, Michelle developed a very passionate and dramatic personality that eventually led her to more dramatic genres such as opera and stage acting. Her aptitude to understand human emotions and relationships gives her a wide spectrum to play in as an actress. There is an organic flow to her interpretations both as an actress and musician that leads the audience to feel her emotional current. Her honest characterizations introduce deeper perspectives on what seems like the ordinary roles and storylines. Amongst the many other leads that she has played, her participation in roles like “Susanna” in The Marriage of Figaro, or “Donna Elvira” in Don Giovanni embody much vibrancy and integrity. Through the development of her voice as a singer and actress, she has crossed over into other media such as voice over commercial work and vocals for pop/main stream music productions. She has recently participated as a vocalist and violinist in the albums of artists such as international jazz pop artist David Longoria, Latin pop singer Erick Bolivar, Grammy-nominated percussionist Souhail Kaspar, and American Idol’s Seysha. Over the last few years she has unraveled her musical skills as a songwriter/composer/arranger and has even had some small victories acquiring music placements on TV shows (NCIS, short film “Sumtin’ Like Dat”, The Dictator) for herself and some of her colleagues. Her singing can also be heard on the hit tv show "Jane The Virgin", "Castle" and "Shameless" amongst others.
Education Michelle completed her Associates of Arts for Music/Music Education at the age of 18, and got later graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Miami with a Bachelor's of Arts for Musical Theater and Music Business, as well as from Florida International University with a Master's of Music in Vocal Performance.
*** Lesson Details *** I tailor my lessons to my student's needs, style, abilities, and goals. Learning is truly a fun and passionate adventure for me, and my enthusiasm has consistently been a contagious quality :) I love to challenge myself & my students to discover how immense their true potential is, and I create a safe and fun environment to explore such facets.
My curriculum is combination of solid tradition (Suzuki method for piano & violin, and Bel Canto technique for singing) interwoven with pop-culture, and modern influences. Within the first 3-6 months, my students will know the basic building blocks of music - which includes scales, arpeggios, triads, intervals, technique, and performance repertoire; and for my singers this will include proper breath technique, tone placement, support, very often increased vocal range (both high and low), and will feel significantly stronger vocally and more confident getting up to sing.
*** Studio Equipment *** Full size Keyboard, mics, pro tools, Violin (electric, acoustic, and Chinese Ehru)
It's been a great experience to have lessons online. Although it lasted 45 minutes, I have seen that these types of lessons are very useful and practical. Thank you for providing these lessons!

I am a 62 year old person who had previously studied Spanish using Rosetta Stone and Duolingo. I started taking lessons with Georgina several years ago to provide a regular opportunity to engage in Spanish conversation. Our lessons have been free-flowing and she introduced me to a number of books written in Spanish which were not only helpful in further developing my knowledge of Spanish but were culturally enlightening as well. Georgina is easy to engage, a delightful person to know and an excellent instructor.
March 14, 2018
Georgina is a native speaker with a clear, concise approach and dives right in. So far so good.
July 25, 2017
Georgina is doing such a great job catering the Spanish lessons to the needs of each child per the goals that have been set. The lessons are fun and engaging and my boys really enjoy them.
I have more than ten years of experience teaching Spanish and English as a Second Language (ESL). I guarantee my students a successful class thanks to my passion for teaching, my patience and my enthusiasm.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile!
Spanish is my native language and I've always been fascinated by its grammar, its phonetics and beauty in general. But learning other languages has also being one of my passions. I am fortunate to be proficient in two languages (Spanish and English), but knowing a few others has given me perspective that became a tool for another of my passions: Teaching!!!
I strongly believe everyone is capable of learning Spanish. That's why I guarantee my students I can teach them not only what they want but also what they need. Every student is different and that's why I personalize each of my classes. I have 15+ years of experience teaching adults, teens, children, big groups, families, etc., not only in the US but also in Mexico and other countries (online). My teaching method has
been recognized and awarded by organizations like the Erie Neighborhood House in Chicago, and the DuPage County Health Department. I enjoy teaching because there is no better satisfaction that helping others to accomplish something they considered almost impossible; I will be happy to help you get there!
Adriana is a natural teacher and I look forward to having more classes with her!
February 11, 2019
Adriana made me feel comfortable right away! She maximizes our time together by teaching me the skills and vocabulary based off of my needs, requests and skill level. She sends me resources to review and adapts to my learning style. Her scheduling is flexible - she's wonderful to work with!
I have been teaching Spanish for over 10 years in universities (SDSU and Georgetown), private schools and through private lessons, and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of Spanish culture, study abroad in Latin America, and more! It is important for me to get to know my students and their goals so that I can adapt my lessons to their pace and needs. I love working with students of all experience levels and ...espero contar con su presencia! I am currently just accepting students for long commitment with the lessons.
Hi, there! My name is Ana and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching Spanish since 2007 and have loved helping my students to reach their goals whether that was getting ready for a test, learning their ancestors language or getting fluent for their next job destination. I went to San Diego State University and earned a Master's program in Spanish linguistics. I also pursued a second Masters in Spain (my home country) in Teaching Spanish as a Second Language. I'm a motivated and dynamic teacher who has learnt that all students can learn a second language if they are challenged and encouraged. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

i have been taking lessons with Ana for approximately six months so far and plan to be taking lessons with her for at least the next year if not years. Ana is great.
i like her approach to teaching and her personality is making a very frustrating task easier, not easy, but easier. it is obvious she is well educated and experienced in her craft. I always wanted to learn a second language and I was searching the web for lessons, found Takelessons and feel very lucky to have choosen Ana. For anyone who wants to take lessons online i would highly recommend Ana. She is a professional.
June 20, 2019
I have been working with Ana for six months and could not speak more highly of her ability as a teacher. She is extremely organized so not a single minute of the hour session goes wasted. She is a very patient teacher and explains grammar in a way that's easy to understand and remember. She also selects interesting content, including stories and news articles, so homework never felt like a chore! It was my first experience with taking a class via Skype so I was somewhat skeptical of the format initially, but it works extremely well and I feel like I got so much out of my weekly sessions. I highly recommend Ana to anyone who wants to improve their Spanish level quickly!
I have been teaching Spanish for the last 6 years, both online and offline. My students love my lessons, they have fun, enjoy every class, and have continuously improved their Spanish, time after time again. I believe if they can find just a few minutes every day to practice, they can start speaking Spanish in no time while having lots of fun in every class. Spanish is a beautiful language, so all they need to do is practice just a tiny bit every day. So, let’s master the Spanish language together in my class while having lots of fun. I am looking forward to seeing you in class very, very soon!

Hi Everyone, book a lesson with me because I am fun and patient but most importantly because I am also a student like you but in French and I know the struggles of learning a new language. I have material to teach you from and I speak English and Portuguese on top of my Spanish which is my mother tongue.
Hi, my name is Milton. I am 27 years old, I am Salvadoran but I live in Brazil for six months every year. I have traveled to Guatemala, Panama, and Brazil. I like learning languages and that is the reason why I speak excellent English and Portuguese. Currently, I am learning French.
On my free time, I go to the gym, listen to music, read, watch movies and go shopping.
I study Modern Languages at the university of El Salvador and there I discovered my passion in teaching. I started working with a NGO where I taught English, then I was hired at a public and private school. Also I did some teaching via Skype and that is how I helped others to improve their learning course.
Most of the time, my students ask me to prepare a conversational class where the student chooses a topic of his/her interest. When I had a classroom, I used to use a b
ook from where I would prepare my class. I like using current topics to keep the student's attention going.
Ralph is a good man and wonderful teacher. He really worry about if student learning. He Carefully prepare the lessons and always ask if student are comfortable or wants other kind of topic. His qualities are punctuality, attention, preparedness and ability to teach.

Ralph has a lot of patience and he likes talking about everything also he makes the lesson very attractive. By the way he is going to improve your english level.
May 2, 2019
I've been taking lessons with Ralph for almost a year now over Skype and I'm so pleased with my improvement. I'm always impressed with the preparation Ralph does for each lesson - a huge list of conversation topics or an article to discuss - and appreciate his enthusiasm, good humor, and patience. I started at an upper-intermediate level and Ralph has helped me refine the finer points of speaking to sound more native. Highly recommended!
I enjoy teaching languages, therefore, I ensure that my lessons are fun, exciting and effective! As someone who speaks 4 different languages, I understand how it feels to learn new languages and how frustrating it can get sometimes. My personal experiences and training have given me the skills to make the process very effective and exciting!
Hi! Teaching and learning new languages is my passion. I want to learn at least 8 languages before I leave this earth, so I have 4 more languages to go. I am eager to share my love for English and Spanish with anyone who is willing to learn. I look forward to meeting and teaching you!
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 …
