Informative and patient classes centered around students needs and requirements.

About Rene
Knowing at the age of 5 that music was my life, by being brought up surrounded by praise music and gospel, my early exposure to music helped me to find every Instrument and style just my thing! I wanted to play everything and learn all aspects of music. I started with singing in the children's choir and then developed into piano and music theory. At the age of 12 I began to learn classical guitar, and at 15 took on various styles like Flamenco, Jazz and Rock. I graduated from High School having played in the school band achieving recognition In national Institutions Like IAJE (International As
sociation for Jazz Education) and state band finals. I was also composing from a very early age, and at 18 released my first album (self-titled) which can still be heard and purchased today through various music outlets, since i have released over 15 albums with various ensembles and bands. In college I already knew from my previous experience that I wanted to teach and pass on the joy that music brought to my life. I studied Music Theory and Jazz and finished my degree in Music Education. I have been teaching all in all for about 14 yrs. And I have enjoyed every minute I have spent with my students learning as much from them, as them from me. I am looking forward to meeting new and eager students who really want to bring their inner music out to share with the rest of us music aficionados! and develop their skills to the peak of their abilities.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching method ranges depending on the student. I believe in my experience that everyone learns differently, therefore everyone develops at their own pace. I try to find key strengths in each student and expose this to their advantage, using their abilities to further develop their skills, this method has shown the most promising results and students usually find themselves playing and performing just a couple of months after their first lessons. Part of my method involves a lot of performance and recital opportunities to help break any fears and inhibitions a student may bring with them. Music is about sharing, so an early exposure to this method helps to strengthen and stabilize a core acceptance of a students style and path, giving them and those close to them a very clear picture of their development and achievements.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Has all instruments at both his home and college studio

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson material, song charts and a progression scale. I require student to have an Instrument and recommended technique literature.

*** Specialties ***
My classical training began in High School with Influences in Segovia, and Romero I studied classical for 4 yrs. and trained in Jazz and Improvisation with performances In Big Band and group ensemble. Also sang and played in the school gospel choir.

****Personal Statement*****

If you needed a reason

There is no question that music touches us instantly and activates images, emotions and memories that linger with us throughout our lives. As a casual listener or an obsessive music elitist, there are times in our lives when we get blown away by a sound so unique our entire body vibrates and resonates with the touch of something out of this world. I can honestly say when this happens to me I feel as close to a spiritual connection than anything I have experienced otherwise. I believe it is these exact events that have triggered my need to be completely involved in the making, performing and consuming of music. The creative process, to me, is the single obvious reason we exist in this world. We create and share, learn and interpret, build on previous ideas and inspire others to perfect upon this process. It is no doubt a very humbling experience to realize you are part of it all. During this process you come to realize how important you are as an Individual, how there is no other vessel like you in this world, nor has there ever been or ever will. You are here now and your voice, your talent, your gift is an instrument to the great choir of the human spirit. No one but you can relate this, a reason to be, to create, to give.

I was having a lot of trouble in English all year and it wasn't until I started working with Elyssa that my writing and reading got better. Thanks to her, I ended up getting a 92 on the regents.

About Pablo
Hi there, future student! I am from a small offshore town in the mediterranean coast of Spain. In 2012 I started to teach english lessons to kids in my town to get some extra money and pay my studies. Promptly I started to get more and more students, both kids and adults. I noticed that teaching was something that I really liked so I kept teaching for the following four years. I was hired by an english academy to teach part-time to small groups of people.

Last year I move to the United States due to my studies, and I tried to keep doing my favorite hobby: Teaching. I post an announcement for
Spanish lessons and it had a very good reception. I love how americans are interested in spanish and it´s so fulfilling to show them something that is a part of me: my language and my culture.

About my personal life, I´m happily married with a wonderful turkish woman (what a mix!) and enjoying the lifestyle of America, although I miss Spain so much!
I am a very relax person and I believe humor is the best tool to face any aspect of life, and learning a language is not an exception. I always try to create a relax environment in my classes where jokes and small chats are allowed. Thanks to this method I become friends with many of my old students!

In short, if you are thinking to learn spanish or you want to perfect your accent, or you want a teacher for your kids, or even if you want to drink a beer watching "el clasico" with a spanish, don´t hesitate for a second: just let me know and I would do whatever is in my hands to make you succeed in your "spanish goals"

Dear future student, I am looking forward teaching you very very soon. Best, Pablo.

A Teacher Intro Poem

My name is Ms. Charity,
So glad you came to visit me.
I’ve been teaching about 5 years,
To do it well I stay excited and clear.

I love baking when I can,
Follow my recipe just like my lesson plan.
I like to read books in my free time,
I also write poetry cause I like to rhyme.
It makes learning so much fun,
When you use words to make a pun.

To get rid of learner’s block,
On my classroom put your lock.
Then with me you can sing along,
Learning Spanish you can’t go wrong!

So, come learn Spanish with Ms. Charity.
It’s fun in this classroom,
This is where you’ll want to be!
Goodbye is only for now,
As long as you choose me! 😊

Masculine & Feminine Spanish Nouns | Test Yourself!
In English, every noun has a neutral gender. This makes it easy to learn, so you really only need to learn the new word and the learning stops there. In Spanish, on the other hand, every single noun is either masculine or feminine. This means that every time you learn a new Spanish vocabulary word, you need to learn its accompanying gender as well. This may appear confusing for beginners, but bear with me! Here are the general rules for determining masculine and feminine Spanish nouns:
