About Enrique
I truly enjoy teaching and have many years of experience teaching students of all levels and ages.

I try to teach my students how important it is to listen to themselves play. When appropriate, I bring a guitar or bass (depending on the student's need) and help the student learn how drums relate to the rest of the music. I want all of my students to enjoy playing and to have music as a tool for life: one that helps them express themselves, think creatively, learn specific and technical skills, and grow musically. I believe all people can benefit from learning to play an instrument. If you or your child believe that music can provide a new way to find meaning and joy in life while learning a valuable skill, please contact me.

In addition, I have successfully taught many students who have had trouble in school due to lack of motivati
on and/or learning disabilities. Drum/percussion lessons have reawakened these discouraged students' desire to learn and I am happy to adjust my teaching style for any disabilities or difficulties a student may have. I am happy to provide references from parents whose children were struggling in other areas of life and who looked forward to a music lesson when all else seemed to be a chore.

More information: My recent recordings include top-selling Mexican pop artist Yuridia's newest album, Entre Mariposas, produced by his longtime collaborator Javier Calderon, and I have shared credits with Kenny Aronoff and James East.

Winner , San Diego Music Awards with the band Skelpin.

Percussionist of Manolito Gypsy (Gypsy Kings).

*** Lesson Details ***
Classes are 30, 45 or 60 minutes, depending on age and ability. I give lessons at your home or in my home studio.

I will start by talking to the student and/or parent about what the student would like to accomplish from the lessons and what, if any, musical background the student already has. It's OK if you don't have any experience at all.

The first class is when I focus on understanding how the student learns. Everyone learns differently and is motivated differently, so I make it a point to get to know what makes the student tick. During the first lesson, we will do some basic exercises so I can pinpoint where they are, and I'll assign skills to practice for the next class.

If the class is taught at my home studio, I record it for the student to refer to during the week. I assign exercises for every class, so please plan to practice at least 15 minutes per day while you are taking lessons.

Finally, I offer a recording opportunity for students who are writing songs and would like to learn recording skills. This is an option for advanced students, students who are looking to record a demo, or for young students who would like to preserve their new accomplishments on an audio file that can be given as a gift.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Roland TD-6 and Yamaha stage custom and acoustic drums. Full in-home studio. Machudo Cajons (Drum Box) Yamaha acoustic set, Sonar recording software,Box) Yamaha acoustic set, Sonar rec software,

*** Travel Equipment ***
Will bring appropriate lesson materials to your home and we will work together to get the right practice materials for you within your budget.

Spanish I-IV tutoring offered, Spanish phonics and pronunciation assistance

About Daniel
My name is Daniel B. I have my B. Sci degree in Psychology/Neuroscience and I am currently a Research Assistant at Harvard Medical School. My academic focus lies in neurodegenerative diseases, schizophrenia, memories, and consciousness.

Since its founding in 2006, I have been involved Neighbor to Neighbor Outreach (NTNO), a non-profit organization whose goal it is to insure that the children, youth, and adults of inner-city St. Louis are provided tutoring for every imaginable subject. Upon graduation, I moved to Boston to continue research in preparation for a PhD in Neuroscience. Here, i continue to tutor within and outside the university setting.

My teaching style is quite simple and effective. I initially gauge the student's level of understanding of the subject or skill that he/she wishes to master. I then create a comprehensiv
e learning plan which pushes the student to his/her limits while making the learning process both enjoyable and rewarding.

If you find yourself in need of my assistance, just let me know. I am able to work around your schedule and I am available to be contacted anytime.

*** Lesson Details ***
Initial Lesson:

- Subject understanding is determined.
- Necessary areas of improvement are determined.
- Preferred and/or most efficient study style is determined.
- Goals are set.

Each lesson will vary according to the student. As far as music studies are concerned, we will begin by ensuring mastery of the basics such as note recognition, chords, and correct fingering.

For each subject, the pattern will be similar. We will work on the basics and then we will progress commensurately.

Daniel was the perfect tutor for my son's prep for the GED. He was patient, prepared to help with test taking skills along with the actual content of the tests, and made himself available on a very short notice. In addition, Daniel is just a nice, respectful person that was a pleasure to interact with. I can not say enough. Highly recommend him!

Learn Spanish through music, videos, conversation, and live practice. I will help you build a solid foundation for basic Spanish and help build your confidence with pronunciation and speaking with native speakers.

About Frankline
I've been teaching since undergrad, working with students ages 6-18. Through this experience 30% of my students were ESL and as a result created curriculum based on that information. I hold very high expectations for my students and they are always able to meet them! I've spent 8 years studying Spanish and have traveled to 3 Spanish speaking countries. I love the language and the experiences it has offered me - I want to be able to share that with others. Lastly, I am currently a middle school History teacher. About 73% of my students are ESL and have individual needs, as a result my curriculum must always have ESL accommodations.

Learn with a native Spanish speaker from Bolivia. I have a passion to teach and help while sharing my culture and knowledge. My classes are adaptable for every student, an I will tailor the learning experience to each student's specific goals and needs.

There are 20 countries in the world that have Spanish as their official language, but Spanish is not exactly the same everywhere. I enjoy sharing insights into regional colloquialisms to help you prepare better for your unique circumstances.

About Gustavo
I started teaching Spanish in 2011 in Bolivia, helping people visiting my country learn the local language and customs.

In more recent years I have helped Spanish learners prepare for trips to Spanish speaking countries, to write documents and letters in the appropriate style and tone, and to deepen their knowledge in order to be able to communicate (both casually and professionally) better with Spanish speakers.

Today was my first lesson with Gustavo. From the start, he was super warm and welcoming. We had already worked the details before meeting today on where I wanted to focus my learning and he had a plan and peripherals ready to go. He really stretched me today, allowing me to engage in the language and corrected where needed. At the end of the lesson, he gave me some homework to help me prepare for our next lesson. I'm really excited about our future lessons together!

My classes can be adapted to the needs of each student. We can follow a traditional methodology (focusing on the area that involves more difficulty), or combine it with more up-to-date exercises and activities (working with TV shows and series, music, conversations ...) where, without realizing, you will be learning and at the same time internalizing the language in a different way.

About Lucia
Hello! My name is Lucia, I am native Spanish speaker from Barcelona, Spain.
I started teaching students when I was very young at the age of 17 as a private tutor.

My passion for teaching went on so I ended up doing a master in education for Spanish and English language after getting my degree in Translation & interpreting.

I was an english teacher in a private school during two years in Barcelona. Now I am moving to Boston and I am very excited to have my new team of students! Really looking forward to meeting you!

When I moved to Spain for work reasons, I spoke very little Spanish. Lucia came recommended and I am so pleased to have met her. Lucia did something so simple and yet so crucial for anyone learning a new language: she made me feel comfortable speaking it with her. I’m a pretty shy person, but Lucia made me feel at home and as a result I spoke more freely and quickly became more confident... it’s a chain reaction which allowed me to socialize more and better with Spaniards, which in turn has also helped me improve greatly my language skills. Lucia connects on a personal level while never ceasing to be extremely professional. My classes with her helped me greatly as I adapted to my new life here in Spain.
