View Full Profile

I teach up to College level English, assist with Term papers, Essays, reports and research papers. Also for my non-native speakers I assist them in learning phonetics and grammar.

About Rosita
I have been singing and studying voice for over 23 years since I was a child! I hold a Bachelors from Musicians Institute and other accomplished degrees from American Musical Dramatic Academy to conclude my quest for vocal excellence and the ability to sing in multiple languages ( English, Spanish, Japanese and Italian) I have been lucky enough to study with some of the top teachers in the country and now I bring the experience I have gained directly to you!
I am proud to share my student's vast array of musical successes. From being cast on short anime films and musicals to being accepted into prestigious performing arts academies to conquering the Karaoke scene. My passion for multiple languages and love of music is the desire driving me to share the gifts for teaching young children to open the door to their own musical abilities and
hidden artistic desires. I am currently writing a musical which will be debuting in 2020. I'm currently the vocal coach/Trainer and choir director at Iglesia Elim Central.

I will make sure my students have fun and help them get in the right track to their musical goals.

Also, I constantly upload videos on Singing, The Spanish Language, and Japanese! So keep Checking in! It ranges on tips and answering the most common questions on those particular subjects!

Also There are discounted rates for worship teams and church choirs. For more information please contact me through the "Ask a Question feature"

*** Lesson Details ***
I do my absolute best to create a positive atmosphere for my students. Even when the students feel frustrated or stressed, it is important to inspire them and give them the fuel that they need. Though I am strict when it comes to homework and their about their studies. Every lesson at the beginning I will review what we learned previously and test them.
then begin with proper breathing technique exercises, the cornerstone of all vocals. We move on to vocal exercises to condition the voice. Then we work on the songs that you are eager to sing!

I will use a piano when doing vocal warm ups and conditioning exercises. Students that play other instruments and accompany themselves when performing (such as a guitar) are encouraged to bring that instrument to their lessons. My goal is for them to gain the knowledge that they need to help reach their artistic goals.
With all my lessons every student will be taught a basic run down of Music Theory. My students will always progress in what they do. They will have the discipline that they need and yet have fun and be filled with inspiration. Which is the most important thing, to be Inspired to do better.

*** Studio Equipment ***
iMac, condensing mic...performing mic, keyboard, mixer...living room of apartment.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I do have a portable keyboard. Though I do expect the student to have their own recording device and karaoke tracks. At Home I do have a studio, and if the students has an iPod or an Mp3 player I can attach it to a device where all of us can hear the tracks. I do have a recording studio as well.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Musical Theatre, and Pop rock genres. When I teach my students I always have them learn a song of another language whether it's Spanish or Japanese. It helps with diction when they learn a song outside the English Language. Also It helps them to learn another Language at the same time. Also I give them a little anatomy class when they are learning how to sing. I give them a model of the vocal Chords and different areas of the Larynx and which part works for the chest voice and the head voice.

I'm a Public Speaker and I always lose my voice after 45 minutes. As I was talking to one of my clients she recommended me to go to a vocal trainer and I associate vocal trainers as a singing teacher. But to much of my surprise they train people to do both! So I began searching for a Vocal Trainer and found Rosita. She is very uplifting and patient. Her direction is incredibly helpful. Her weekly goals, telling us the physical vibrations we need to aim for.Rosita is truly out of this world!

Thank you!

Learn the language of English.

About Natalie
Born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, at the age of 9, Natalie knew music was something that was just a part of who she was. Writing songs on the piano before lessons could be scheduled, Natalie found herself immersed in a medium that would bring her joy for the rest of her life.

By age 14 Natalie had won several trophies competing in Classical piano with the Illinois Music Association.

As an adult, she would go on to fill her life with the world of music as a singer, songwriter, performer and recording artist.

Graduating from Elmhurst College (1997) with a Bachelor's in Music, Natalie received high accolades earning a membership in the Lambda Sigma Psi Music Honor Society.

During her college years, Natalie created and owned a local music publication called, "The Local Buzz". At this moment she had discovered her
desire to teach. "I just wanted everyone I knew in music to know and use what I was learning, or had learned from the music classes, professionals I had been meeting and working with, and my overall music life experiences". By 1997, Natalie was signed to an independent label and embarked on a new adventure.

"Music is an adventure, but without the foundation and passion I had as a child, I would have never landed where I did. I truly LOVE to teach and share what I know about piano, and the world of music. Music is what I know, and know best. Helping to create a solid foundation and build confidence in someone embarking on a journey in music is the most rewarding profession I have ever had the honor of participating in."

*** Lesson Details ***
Natalie enjoys teaching students of any age, but specializes in piano, voice and beginning guitar, tailoring lessons to each individual's goals and reasons for learning whether it be for personal pleasure or professional performance.

Keeping things lighthearted and fun, Natalie breathes confidence into each student using her sense of humor, and down-to-earth personality.

Feeding off 40 years of personal and professional experiences, Natalie patiently listens to the student's desires, needs and notates their learning patterns, allowing for growth at their own pace.

Natalie's goal is to Make Music Matter to you and create a foundation that will allow you to continue to find joy in making music for the rest of your life.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Designated music space in the living room with a Spinet piano, guitars, bluetooth powered speakers, karaoke equipment, microphones and comfortable seating.

Whether you're looking to improve your communication skills through writing and/or speaking, I'm here to help.

Pronouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, interjections; these are the puzzle pieces that make up a language. They are called parts of speech.

If you utilize the parts of speech correctly, they can dramatically transform the way you communicate.

"No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world." -John Keating

Now let's articulate your ideas into words.

About Alli
ABOUT ME:

I'm a TESOL-Certified English teacher, language enthusiast and grammar nerd.
I speak proficient Spanish and Portuguese, therefore, native Spanish or Portuguese speakers will benefit greatly by taking lessons with me.

I've taught people from around the world. Some of my past students have been from Spain, Brazil, Peru, Philippines, China, South Korea, Germany, Cuba, Columbia, Italy, and Ethiopia.

I'm comfortable teaching all ages. Although, I specialize in teaching adults. Especially adults wanting to improve their English for business-related purposes.

I find it truly exciting to tutor English. English is more than literature. English is a language, rich in history and tradition, form and flexibility, culture and creativity.

I look forward to taking on the responsibility of writing quality curricula, creating engaging environments, and most importantly, exploring the complexity of learning alongside another.

I've taught German to undergraduates, Spanish to teens, and Italian to friends. But my most rewarding teaching experience was teaching English to highschool students in Austria. Thus I bring that same fervor to tutoring English here, promising lessons that are both fun and functional.

About Anna
I like to smile. I like to sing. I like to snack. I like to snorkel.
However, I am passionate and professional about teaching. From an early age, I wanted to inspire others to do their best. Thus I have coached, I have tutored, I have counselled, I have taught. And I love every second that I spend alongside a student.

Teaching allows me to be both creative and organized, to simultaneously work hard and have fun. Yet what I find best about teaching, is that offers me venues to learn from my students.

I have taught all ages (3-80); I have taught in 4 different languages; I have taught on ski slopes, in barnyards, on sailboats, in classrooms, and on playgrounds. And these diverse hands-on experiences, paired with a degree in teaching from Bowdoin College and a Fulbright Fellowship, have prepared me for meeting you, for teaching you,
for learning with you.

I am around until Fall 2018, as at this time, I will begin my PhD candidacy in Second Language Acquisition and Pedagogy.
