It can be pretty intimidating singing in front of a stranger in their home but Daniel makes you feel at ease and comfortable. He also has very extensive vocal training with makes me confident that his critiques and recommendations will help me grow and develop my voice.

I have 10 years of experience tutoring english and math for standardized exams (SAT/ACT/GRE) test preparation, as well as helping new English speakers improve their vocabulary and conversational/writing skills.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have. However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. Or maybe the teacher/professor is not the best

Do you remember your days of foreign language class in school? I do, and it was awful! We spent hour upon hour memorizing vocabulary and grammar. We copied, translated, conjugated, and labelled. And yet, at the end of each year I know exactly what I started with - nothing!

Since then, I've been able to learn two other languages by myself - Spanish and Portuguese. I didn't study these languages in school, or ever step foot inside an foreign-language classroom. Instead, I created my own method of learning that sees language for what it really is - a way to communicate. In my classes, we will focus on communication, as it is the single most important skill you can develop. I will teach you grammar, and I will teach you conjugation. I'll even expect you to learn new vocabulary. But the center of our learning will always be communication. "How can I use this to communicate with others?" Everything we learn will be centered around that question.

Naturally, each class will be designed with
