An immersive, cultural experience that will allow the student to experience Spanish as native speakers do.
Hello there, future string players and welcome to my profile!!
I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and raised in Miami, FL. I started my musical career at the age of 8, singing in chorus, playing the recorder, and shortly afterwards moving to the guitar, and the violin.
When I was 15, I was nominated for a James L. Knight Award in Music, and I performed as a violin soloist with the Miami Beach Symphony Orchestra, and the Greater Miami Youth Symphony playing Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 3 in G major. One of my most memorable experiences when I was a kid! In high school, I formed my own string quartet and we would perform all over the South Florida community especially at hospitals and for the elderly. At 16 years old, I was also given an internship with the New World Symphony, conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas, for about 2
years. During this time, I was able to take lessons from master violinists such as Marc Thayer and Glen Cherry. During this time, I was given the opportunity to perform with the New World Symphony at 17 years old for pops concert conducted and performed by Chuck Mangione in El Doral, FL.
I later on accepted a scholarship for violin performance at the University of Miami for my Bachelor of Music, and earned my Master of Music from Florida State University. I also taught string orchestras for 10 years at Ruth K. Broad Bay Harbor K-8 Center, South Florida Youth Symphony as conductor (and now composer!), and conductor of the Greater Miami Youth Symphony. I was appointed Assistant Conductor of the Alhambra Orchestra for two seasons under the guidance of my high school orchestra teacher, Mr. Reginald Nicholson (1947-2011). It was here where I was able to work on my compositions, orchestrations, and conduct a fine group of musicians.
I now live in sunny Los Angeles, in the Sherman Oaks area, and I'm loving the new change. I am eager to share my knowledge with new students on various subjects such as learning a string instrument to learning a different language. Please feel free to ask me any questions.
I am looking forward to getting to know you and your goals for learning! ____________________________________________________
LESSON DETAILS I have been teaching music as an adult, certified teacher since I was in college, but have done teaching as early as 15 years old.
I will help you create a fantastic technical base so you will be able to play with ease as your skill level develops, all while keeping the lessons fun and engaging.
MUSIC STUDIO Piano, Violin, Guitar, Music Stand, General Teaching Aids, Recording Equipment.
TRAVEL EQUIPMENT I can provide a music stand and basic materials but the student is expected to have their own instruments and to buy the music I recommend. I can recommend various vendors/shops where you can buy the ideal instrument for your lessons.
EXPERTISE I am classically-trained musician that also specializes in Tango performance, Latin/Jazz, Rock, and a variety of other styles. I believe that training in the classical aesthetic will create a firm, solid foundation to crossover into other areas listed above. With a good dose of technical exercises, scales, and a variety of repertoire, my students always turn out well-rounded, ready to tackle almost any kind of music they wish to learn.
Thank you for stopping by and let me know what you would like to learn!
Amazing lessons! Nicolas is methodical in his teaching and shows patience, dedication, and a kind heart. My 10 year-old daughter loves her lessons. I highly recommend him!

One the best intructors I’ve had in years! Nick really knows his music theory, orchestration, and compositional techniques. He’s helped me appreciate the intricacies of creating music for myself and others. He challenges me to do my very best. Thank you, Nick!

Nick is the perfect balance of dedicated teacher and incredible human being. Our 9 year old son loves his violin lessons with him. We are delighted we found him! Thank you, Nick!

Janet is a beautiful person inside and out. Janet was referred to me by a friend. I needed to start learning Spanish because I was going overseas to Columbia for 1 year. Janet is an extremely patient person. My primary goal was to learn conversational Spanish and to learn as much vocabulary as possible. Janet tailored to my needs and I greatly appreciated that. Janet is a confident young woman and she’s very good at what she does. I plan on getting more Spanish Lessons from her when I get back. Just within the first lesson I receive so much value. I would highly recommend Janet to anyone and would encourage you to purchase a package of lessons today you won’t regret.

⭐️ ⭐️ Janet is an absolutely amazing Spanish teacher. She is a rockstar. I really stuggled with congugating the Spanish verbs and Janet really helped me so much. She is one of the most patient people that I know. I’m also a very slow learner and Janet was always very considerate, gentle and kind and never rushed me. I’ve taken Spanish lessons now for 6 months and can now carry a conversation. Purchase a package of lessons today with Janet you won’t regret it! Thank you for everything Janet! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Initially I like to evaluate the student's current comprehension level (regardless of years studied) to better select the appropriate starting point. From there, if there is a specific subject matter or course work/syllabus for a class that needs to be followed, I can tailor lessons to fit those needs. Throughout lessons, I like to bring in elements such as cartoons, newspapers, movie clips, etc. to aid in understanding everyday usage & make learning practical and pertinent to the student.
**30 minute lessons are available for students interested in Conversational Spanish practice (for Intermediate/Advanced Only). Please send me a message if you are interested & we can discuss how to arrange through TakeLessons.
About Kenji Luis
I grew up speaking English, Portuguese & Japanese in a multilingual family and from a young age developed a strong affinity & penchant for languages. I attended an English-Portuguese Bilingual school through 6th grade and studied Japanese 4 years in high school, along with weekend Japanese school classes. In college I went on to major in International Relations & Diplomacy with a concentration in French studies, also honing my Spanish that I had picked up along the way (with Romance Languages, I have a very easy time of language absorption). I've gone on to work for international companies wherein my language skills have been highly sought after, translating & communicating often in all my language strengths.
Native Spanish Speaker who enjoys teaching through conversation while learning grammar in an effective method.

I am an opera singer by trade and I also have experience performing in contemporary bands, musical theater, solo piano concerts, as well as classical voice concerts.

Zaray has been my teacher for over 4 years and has been amazing! She taught me mostly everything about music and helped me get accepted into one of the best schools in Florida. I took singing lessons and piano lessons that helped me learn a lot, because of her I was able to preform in new York and attend the All-state elementary choir. Overall an excellent teacher, I really recommend!

Zaray has done such great work. She really takes the time to diagnose the problem with her stellar ear and to prescribe the best exercises to enhance the vocal mechanism. Not only does she have an abundant technical vocabulary, she really personalizes her style of teaching for each student. Apart from being technically a wizard, she is one of the most joyful people to be around. Her calm demeanor and easy going self really makes a student of every level comfortable. I highly recommend!!

Furthermore, one of my objectives is to motivate students fulfill their potential and imbued them an interest for the Spanish language as well as the Hispanic culture.

Have you always wanted to learn Spanish, but never had the time or resources? Now is the time to fulfill your dreams of learning a new language!
With my experience in language instruction I have been able to take students from speaking no Spanish to participating in active conversation in just three weeks, and I can help you too. My classes are dynamic and challenging and I will push you to learn and retain Spanish at your pace. I do this by focusing on conversation and language in practice, rather isolated grammar drills that get you nowhere.

I am an experienced and certified language instructor. My ESL/EFL/ELL language teaching experience comes mainly from work as an English teacher in Ecuador. I served in Ecuador with the Peace Corps from 2017-2019 and in that time I taught English to students aged 6-35 in elementary, middle, and high school as well university. I also worked alongside Ecuadorian English teachers to improve their level of the language as well. I now have continued to teach English and Spanish in the US and I love teaching students of all ages with all language backgrounds.
Homework, tutoring, middle or high school level Spanish 1 and 2
Hello! I am starting my tutor services as a side gig to my day job. I have taken 8 years of Spanish classes all through high school and college and have a minor in Spanish. I am happy to help middle and high school students with beginner level Spanish when it comes to homework help, test prep, etc.
"Today I had my third lesson. I am enjoying the setting, the interaction and the content"
"The most difficult aspect of learning a new language for adults is fear of making an embarrassing mistake. Micah and other teachers in the Fluency Corp ha
ve created a supportive and comfortable environment where I am able to utilize our newly acquired vocabulary words and grammar into simple conversations, which is exactly my goal. The consistent progress I experience after each lesson is a big motivating factor that propels me forward."
"Awesome first lesson. Looking forward to seeing her next week!"
"My wife is from Puerto Rico and her family doesn't speak English so every time we went there I was not able to communicate with them, she tried to teach m
e and our son but honestly that's not her thing...she found teacher Nick to teach us and he's been more than great! We have been learning so much that although my son is still taking Spanish with him, I am fluent now and started taking Portuguese a couple weeks ago as I travel to Brazil for business often and I'm really excited for all the new things I've learned already, obrigado profe!!!!"
"I work for Nissan and will be training in Mexico. I never thought I would enjoy learning a language. She customized my classes to what I needed to succeed
in my work. I practiced with my Spanish speaking co-workers and knowing that I can carry a conversation about work was an accomplishment on its own."
"She is thorough but maybe moves a little slowly..."
"Absolutely wonderful first Spanish lesson! Excellent teacher. Very kind and patient. Explains things so that even confusing things make sense. Makes sure
you know he's always there to help and you never feel as though you're a bother. Cannot wait for more lessons!"
Want to learn Spanish fast? Moving to a Spanish-speaking country is a great way to immerse yourself in the culture and fast-track your language-learning experience.
While Spain is known for its beauty -- and the Spanish culture is certainly exciting -- don't forget about Mexico as an option! Living in Mexico can be a fantastic experience, as many expats can attest to. We recently connected wiith Tina over at Los Gringos Locos, and her article featuring her observations definitely stood ou …
