My son has been doing online classes with Luis for almost a year and has thoroughly enjoyed his lessons. Luis uses different techniques that has kept my son engaged. They have worked on pronunciation as well as reading comprehension and listening exercises. Luis is patient, engaging, and makes learning fun. We would recommend Luis to anyone thinking of doing lessons.

I am conversational in Spanish and worked abroad for one year teaching in Honduras, in Spanish. I taught the language for one year at an elementary school. My other teaching experience in this area is working with private pupils.

About Jonathan

I have over thirty years of experience working with students of all ages, both in private and group settings. I have also taught in Latin America - in Spanish - as a Fulbright scholar. I have had the privilege of teaching with TakeLessons.com since 2012.

I've been taking piano lessons with Jonathan for over a month now and I've been very pleased with his teaching. He's extremely knowledgeable and skilled, but what I appreciate most is his enthusiasm during lessons. He keeps the lessons fun, even when the subject matter is difficult. On top of this, he's just a cool, nice guy who I've enjoyed getting to know.
Brandon
Working with Johnathan has been a joy.

It was my purpose setting out to study music in general, not just to study an instrument but to use the instrument as a means of approaching music in the abstract. I set out to study music’s mechanics and theoretical foundations.

Jonathan is very knowledgeable and very meticulous. He has a precise and analytical sort of mind, and very strong foundations in his classical training.

To have a wealth of knowledge in one's subject is not enough, one also has to know how to teach (which is a whole skillset of its own). It is clear Jonathan is an experienced teacher. I have never felt rushed with Jonathan, he is very generous with his time. He provides ample resources for study outside of our sessions, and is quick to respond to emails. He has lent me books, sent me links to videos, and provided me with plenty of homework.

Jonathan has also been very accommodating in allowing me to have some authority in planning lessons and exploring my own interests. Particularly I wanted to study modal music and found a folk song in the Locrian Mode. We took a break from the Suzuki work we had been doing and he helped me transcribe the song and practice.

I could not recommend Jonathan enough, I am switching focus from violin to piano for the time being and will be employing him as my piano tutor, and I’m very much considering taking spanish lessons under his tutelage as well.
Ian S.
Ian Really enjoyed his lesson. Jonathan is very knowledgeable and helped Ian with his basic skills and gave him great pointers. He also gave him an outline and daily practice requirements.

Private Spanish Teacher

Hello!
Hola!
Привет!

My name is Yekaterina. I am a native Russian speaker. I've been teaching Spanish, English and Russian to adults and children for many years. I am also a classical pianist, singer and professional educator. I received my degree in piano performance and pedagogy in 1992, and have been teaching since then. I have lived (and taught) all over the world, and I love what I do.
I speak and write fluently in English and Spanish, but as a native Russian speaker, I had to learn English and Spanish (as well as Portuguese, French, Italian and Mandarin) languages from the ground up, just like my students, so I understand very well the challenges of learning a language. I have structured a specific approach that incorporates tricks and shortcuts. Little things you can do to bring the language into your everyday life... these little things that accumulate and make the whole experience of learning a language much easier and more natural. I consider myself a language ...

About Yekaterina

Hello future students :-) I was born and raised in Soviet Union, where I studied piano since I was 5 years old. I love teaching, and have extensive experience teaching not only music, but a variety of other subjects -- I successfully homeschooled my own 3 children for many years, one of them bein

"We talked about the work I do (and she has done too!) which made the conversation and learning very meaningful. She also gave me an article related to my work and asked me to come to the next meeting with a little information to share. So, I was able to practice conversation in my specific field of work. I really enjoyed my first session and I'm looking forward to our next."

"After taking Spanish in high school and college I find myself still not able to converse as I would like to. Since working with Claudia I am closer than ever to that goal! She is kind, patient and extremely knowledgeable about the language. She not only helps me learn Spanish, but she can explain origins of many words and phrases. She dedicates herself completely to our lessons and provides materials for me to do on my own time to supplement. I've been working with Claudia for over a year now and plan to continue! She is outstanding."
