As a native spanish speaker, and a lover of languages, I am always happy to unlock the code to a language and culture for my students. I have a minor in Spanish from the University of Miami and always make sure to tailor my lessons to my students' needs.

About Michelle
VOCAL COACH
Rehabilitating and strengthening voices are two of my top specialties, and each lesson will have specific exercises tailored to helping you transform your voice into the highest and best version of your instrument. I work with singers signed to labels as well as the indie artist just starting to find his/her voice, style, and signature sound. My coaching approach incorporates some of the newest technologies that have shown extraordinary results in breaking down the inner blocks of each artist. It is a tremendously joyful and fulfilling experience to watch as my students really let their instrument shine brightly, boldly, and with an aboslutely stunning groundedness as they discover how powerful they truly are.

MUSICIAN/SONGWRITER/PERFORMER

Poised, energized, and armed with unforgettable performance ability, Michelle G
. is a firework in the artistic arena. Her training began at the young age of 3 with the violin, and a few years later received classes for piano and voice. Excelling in all three, Michelle developed a very passionate and dramatic personality that eventually led her to more dramatic genres such as opera and stage acting. Her aptitude to understand human emotions and relationships gives her a wide spectrum to play in as an actress. There is an organic flow to her interpretations both as an actress and musician that leads the audience to feel her emotional current. Her honest characterizations introduce deeper perspectives on what seems like the ordinary roles and storylines. Amongst the many other leads that she has played, her participation in roles like “Susanna” in The Marriage of Figaro, or “Donna Elvira” in Don Giovanni embody much vibrancy and integrity.
Through the development of her voice as a singer and actress, she has crossed over into other media such as voice over commercial work and vocals for pop/main stream music productions. She has recently participated as a vocalist and violinist in the albums of artists such as international jazz pop artist David Longoria, Latin pop singer Erick Bolivar, Grammy-nominated percussionist Souhail Kaspar, and American Idol’s Seysha. Over the last few years she has unraveled her musical skills as a songwriter/composer/arranger and has even had some small victories acquiring music placements on TV shows (NCIS, short film “Sumtin’ Like Dat”, The Dictator) for herself and some of her colleagues. Her singing can also be heard on the hit tv show "Jane The Virgin", "Castle" and "Shameless" amongst others.

Education
Michelle completed her Associates of Arts for Music/Music Education at the age of 18, and got later graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Miami with a Bachelor's of Arts for Musical Theater and Music Business, as well as from Florida International University with a Master's of Music in Vocal Performance.

*** Lesson Details ***
I tailor my lessons to my student's needs, style, abilities, and goals. Learning is truly a fun and passionate adventure for me, and my enthusiasm has consistently been a contagious quality :) I love to challenge myself & my students to discover how immense their true potential is, and I create a safe and fun environment to explore such facets.

My curriculum is combination of solid tradition (Suzuki method for piano & violin, and Bel Canto technique for singing) interwoven with pop-culture, and modern influences. Within the first 3-6 months, my students will know the basic building blocks of music - which includes scales, arpeggios, triads, intervals, technique, and performance repertoire; and for my singers this will include proper breath technique, tone placement, support, very often increased vocal range (both high and low), and will feel significantly stronger vocally and more confident getting up to sing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Full size Keyboard, mics, pro tools, Violin (electric, acoustic, and Chinese Ehru)

*** Specialties ***
Specialties include:
- Audition technique and prep
- Vocal Technique
- Violin Pedagogy
- Acting Audition Technique

Grammar and vocabulary fundamentals

About Gregory
I began to pursue a career as a vocalist at the age of 12. I studied for 6 years under a professional opera singer and landed a role in the chorus of 'Annie Get Your Gun' on Broadway starring Burnadette Peters and Tom Wopat.

I continued my studies at Wheaton College, MA, and graduated with a B.A. in Music. Throughout college, I directed and conducted vocal and instrumental groups of various genres, and also began teaching.

Since graduating in 2008, I've taught hundreds of students voice, guitar, piano, music theory, and audio engineering.

During the day, I am a Network Engineer and enjoy playing ice hockey!

*** Lesson Details ***
I first ask the student, as well as the parents, to agree on a set goal. Then, I develop a 'mini-curriculum' tailored to the student's strengths and weaknesses. I structure each lesson the same way
: theory fundamentals, exercises, and performance practice. Within each lesson, I incorporate visuals, games, and other media. Live performances are also highly encouraged.

My student's would say that my lessons are motivational and packed with energy. I always follow up with parents to discuss progress, and the student's mandatory log book helps to keep everyone informed of what is expected each week.

*** Instruments/Equipment ***
I provide only equipment that I will personally use for the lesson (books, audio, and instrument). I do not provide instruments, electronic equipment (i.e. amps, cords, keyboards, speakers, computer, etc), books, or sheet music. I expect my students to have or purchase all the materials they will need.

*** Specialties ***
I also offer ear training, songwriting, vocal arranging and music production workshops for artists interested in pursuing a career in the music industry.

"I've been teaching Spanish for 2 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of Spanish culture, study abroad in Latin America, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro! I also specialize in Spanish Reading, and conversation. I love working with students of all experience levels.

Foreign languages are among my favorites, and I have specialized in teaching Latin, Italian, and Japanese. As a geologist, I am also profoundly interested in the sciences.

I'm a native Colombian with 9 years of experience teaching Spanish to students of all ages and many different nationalities. My teaching methods focus on real-world experiences to develop robust, practical language skills that will serve you in your daily life. I love to get to know my students, and I will always personalize your lessons to your interests, needs, and goals. Whether you want to learn Spanish for work, travel, or fun, I can help you get there!

About jeison
I was born in Medellín, Colombia and began teaching myself English as a kid, learning from American TV, movies, and music. Soon I was helping my friends and classmates learn English too, and teaching languages has been my passion ever since. I have a master's degree in Spanish Pedagogy and over nine years of teaching experience, and I am currently working on a doctorate in Education focused on teaching Spanish.

I have taught a wide range of students, from children with special needs to business executives and diplomats. I adapt my lessons to the needs and interests of each individual, but my methods always focus on practical language skills that my students will really use. My classes revolve around conversation, not textbooks, and go beyond standard grammar and vocabulary to include the cultural elements that influence how people truly
use the language.

I believe that anyone can become fluent in a foreign language, regardless of whether they are able to study abroad or not. If you are serious about learning, I can design a program of study that will take you as far as you want to go with Spanish. Even if you have had difficulty with foreign languages in the past, I can help you overcome those roadblocks and achieve remarkable results.

Want to learn a language aside from grammar and rules? I enjoy providing resources and help to help students learn using their own style of learning. I like providing interacting gaming activities, creative lessons, speech & pronunciation tips, and creating a multicultural environment where people can learn while having fun. I have been teaching K-12 for the past 4 years using a hands-on and multicultural methodology. I do not only teach a language but a culture in itself. Mastering and proficiency is my focus while learning through experience and using language in the real world.

About Jose
I am Jose, graduated as an undergrad at Towson University and currently enrolled at University of Maryland. My career is focus on Spanish Literature and Latin American Studies. While majoring on those careers, I participated on a work study group as a tutor in Spanish Linguistics, Culture, and History. I am originally from Peru and have been a volunteer teaching, assisting, and leading educational plans in Mexico and Peru. I enjoy teaching because it connects different people who share similarities and differences culturally and willing to learn about one another.
My experience comes from teaching abroad in both rural areas and cities in Latin America. Currently working at Wolfe Street Academy as the Spanish program coordinator which serves students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds. I enjoy merging methodologies and differentiating to
help students overcome their learning difficulties. Hence, strengthening their learning weaknesses and polishing their learnings’ strengths.
While studying Spanish, I learn that teaching a language is not solely about grammar but rather the culture and structure behind it. Grammar nonetheless is part of the language and a co-requirement to excel academically. My qualifications comes from my multicultural methodology where I teach and provide students resources to self-learn and structure their metacognitive abilities. Merging both culture and language provides opportunities to research, creative write, independent study themes and topics related to the language of Spanish. My interdisciplinary vision provides students the ability to learn grammar not as a base but a tool to comprehend, critical think, and synthesize own their own perceptions and opinions about its culture.
Being a teacher means that one once was a student. The value of learning different things and paying attention to details while having fun in discovering and researching has make craft my abilities to teach the particular subjects describe previously. I will end by quoting Nelson Mandela "Education is the most powerful weapon in the world to entice change" I look forward working with everyone.
