each person is different, each person learns different... I try to find the easiest way for you

About Isabel

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 teach English as a second language. With me you will learn how to sound like a native speakers and pick up great conversational skills and transitions.
One thing I love about teaching is bringing the arts into the process of learning. We may sing in the language and even paint to help learn. I've taught younger than Kindergarten all the way to adults, so feel comfortable that you'll grow in advanced conversational skills, as well as, beginner vocabulary. Let me highlight that I'm passionate about "phonetics," which is the study and classification of speech sounds. In other words, you are going to learn how to sound like a native speaker when you take my class.

About Loren

I'm an artist, musician, and language aficionada. I have a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Georgia, graduating with honors as a Magna Cum Laude in Spanish and French Linguistics. I am fluent in both languages. One thing I love about teaching is bringing the arts into the process of learning. We may sing in the language and even paint to help learn. I've taught younger than Kindergarten all the way to adults, so feel comfortable that you'll grow in your conversational skills, as well as, beginner vocabulary. Let me highlight that I'm passionate about "phonetics," which is the study and classification of speech sounds. In other words, you are going to learn how to sound like a native speaker when you take my class.

Why do I like to bring art and music into the learning journey? Let me tell you one of the biggest secrets I've dis

covered. Art and music can allow you to make a joyful memory, which takes the fleeting moment into the longterm part of your brain, causing you to remember more and put it into what you call "muscle memory" all because you're happy!

Speaking of the arts, I play guitar, ukulele, charango, piano, and I sing! I've been a musician since 2000, and I've successfully turned a hobby into something my husband and I have been doing full time for several years. For beginners, something that works best is taking a song that you LOVE and turning it into your anthem on the instrument of your choice. So pick your song and message me!

Last but not least, I'm a painter. Painting is my favorite part of any day. About my childhood, I can candidly say I had the best stepmom. She would let me take her enormous canvases, oil paints, and brushes and just let me at it. Of course at first they were all of my hand prints and rainbows, but she got me curious, and eventually we started going to museums. I've seen Vangogh, Monet, Divinci, Picasso, and many more as they toured through our city. I began to study their techniques and grow my gift. My "Mama Sue" gifted me a hunger for creativity and excellence, and I can't thank her enough. Painting with me, you will grow in your technique, skill, and confidence, and pick up a little artist history along the way.

I'm looking forward to meeting you and helping you accomplish your dreams!

Loren is an amazing teacher. She is patient, kind and caring. She listened to what I needed in preparation for going to Valencia Spain and then customized the lessons. I think we had a lot of fun together as I slowly began to catch on to the dialect of eastern Spain. BTW - she also knows French! I wish her the very best as she continues teaching others!

Loren is a absolute joy! You will feel so empowered to learn guitar for her even after the first lesson. Plus, she uses many other methods to teach guitar that it feels like you’re having fun and learning at the same time.

“Ohh la la la”, that’s the sound when you comfortable reading along. “Ohh la la la”, you’ll be learning English by singing songs. “Ohh la la la la lalalalala”, come and join along and let me show you how it’s done, yeah.

Learning any new language can sometimes be very frustrating, especially when there are so many rules and conducts of speech one must remember to follow.

Within this ESL lesson, we will be taking the bore out of chore. Book a lesson today and get ready to find your groove as we create and remake lyrics to popular melodies all while learning the basic elementals of the English language. These lessons are perfect for beginners!

About Cierra

Greetings Earthlings, class is in session. Ok time for our first POP QUIZ! See your questions below. (There is a right or wrong answer, but only you will know if it’s correct or not.)

Question 1.: Who are you?

Question 2.: Who or what did you want to be prior to any doubt of becoming that was brought to your awareness?

Question 3.: Does it bother you to have fun while learning? (This is not a trick question.)

Well, there you go. So, how did you do? Remember, only you can really answer these specific questions. When it comes to exploring self, which most of my lessons extends from, understanding and being honest with whom, what and where you are is the first step in opening yourself up to learning and evolving.

Learning should be fun an exciting. There’s also a sense of freedom that should come along with the power of obtaining new me

ntal tools for life. Your life.
