Hi Students,
I am happy that you are interested in learning our ancient and beautiful language. I am a native Hungarian, living in the Chicago area, fluent in both, Hungarian and English. I am an instructot at a Hungarian School for children. with more than 6 years of experience. I have been teaching children from 2-12 years for language, folk songs, and culture.
I am also a Hungarian lawyer, so I can prepare adults in a very high level, even for business, or legal purposes. I would teach you quickly and efficiently, by giving you many interesting information from Hungary and its customs and traditions. I am ready to teach online, too.

Keith was a good teacher to our son, he was patient and kind. Our son learned a lot from him, we hope in the future to use him again, if the opportunity arises. Thanks Keith!

Keith is an amazing teacher. My 7 year old son likes him very much. Before the lessons I worried our boy couldn’t build his interest in playing piano, just lose his enthusiasm after a while as the 7 years old always did. But Keith make me totally worry free, my son likes him very much, and he really knows how to build the kid’s interests and confidence while learning. Now my son enjoyed himself very much with Keith in their piano time. We are so lucky to find Keith.

We had four in-home lessons with Keith and he never once arrived on time. And not like 5 minutes late because of bad traffic or something. Once he was 40 minutes late, and another time he was 45 minutes late. For an hour lesson. At first I though there was some confusion because the time on take lessons was slightly different than the time we agreed to (he asked if we could start earlier than the time slot that was listed, and I agreed) but after speaking with him about it, we were both on the same page as to what time the lesson *should* begin, he just never arrived on time. He seems to be very overbooked and busy and does not respect his clients’ time. He told me that the disparity of arriving on time or a half hour late is “superfluous,” so if you hire him, be prepared to have a wide window of when he could show up. My kids liked him as a teacher, which is why I kept giving him chances and trying to work out scheduling issues (I offered to move our lessons to a different time, but he insisted the time we were at was fine) but in the end, things could not be resolved.

Because it was online I thought it would not be as good as in person. But, I was blown away by how engaging a teacher Mr. Mendez is! My child was very excited and motivated to keep playing and practicing.

Love this teacher
Raymond O.
Although Luis is a good teacher, he has difficulty keeping appointments. His home life interferes with his lessons. Every lesson we had needed rescheduled. Finally we agreed on Fridays and then he rescheduled that one. He doesn't give 24 hr notices as required. So great teacher, but no business organization.
Tim
I really appreciate Luis for the practice he's given me. We worked on lyric analyzation and flow. We focused on speeding up the meter to work harder in performing faster. I have become better with expressing my vocals in a volume where I can sing a long with the music bed. I highly recommend Luis for anyone who is working on improving their vocal training.
