After working with Eulis for 7 months my voice has undergone a complete transformation. It's clearer and stronger than I could have imagined in such a short time. Working with Eulis is very collaborative, he works with me to make sure singing is easy, efficient, and most importantly comfortable. I can tell he has a wide range of experience and influences because he's good at explaining how to achieve a different sound or style while maintaining good technique. He is very passionate about the voice and is always eager to help make wonderful music.

I have been teaching English for eight years. I am TEFL certified and a native English speaker. I tailor the curriculum to the student with their own goals in learning English. Each person has their own needs and learning style so I find this works best. I also have lived abroad in France and Switzerland. Je parle francais. Yo hablo espanol.

I tailor the classes to your needs. After assessing your skills during the first lesson, I'll create a customized lesson plan that can help you master the English language as fast as possible.

We'll strengthen the foundation of your grammar skills so that we can build on it more effectively. We'll work on improving your vocabulary, grammar, speaking, listening, and reading skills with fun but informative exercises. And yes, there will be some homework, but it will be fun, I promise :)

Great instructor! She is friendly and knowledgeable, and very patient. When I don't understand something she is quick to rephrase it in a simpler way. I'd recommend her to anyone!
