I look forward to my lessons!! Little things are beginning to click now. I feel more confident that this is something I can accomplish, in time. Cyrus is very prompt for our classes. He gives me encouragement and answers my questions. This is something I have wanted to do for really no other reason than because I want to. He is very patient and uses many resources online to allow me to feel like I'm in a classroom setting such as google hangout, google documents and sheets. I didn't even know these tools were available. If you are wanting to learn Spanish, I would not hesitate to recommend Cyrus.

I have now had a second lesson with Cyrus. Tonight's lesson was very valuable as he introduced a dialog in Spanish. I have never studied Spanish, ever! I have had 2 classes with Cyrus and I can now greet someone in Spanish already. I can say some very basic phrases, such as "good morning" or "nice to meet you, my name is Mary, what is your name". Tonight we used google documents, it was a very effective. He has listened to what I'd like to achieve and is using that information as a basis on which he builds my lessons around. His plan is geared specifically around my expectations. That, I think, is pretty awesome!!!

Great first lesson. Kathleen contacted me in advance to find out what I’d like to work on and she was prepared with several options tonight. Her helpful tips on folding and diagram reading were just what I was looking for. We agreed on the next piece and I’m already looking forward to our next lesson. Thank you!

I was looking for a boost to my new hobby with origami, and have had two lessons so far with Kathleen. I couldn't be happier with the lesson experience; her approach is detailed, clear, easy to follow along with and relaxed. She was even folding upside down from her point of view so that I could see from across the table. I was really impressed. There's nothing like learning from a real person. Definitely looking forward to more lessons in the future.

Hello!
My name is Scott Watts, and I have been tutoring Spanish for 2 years. When taking Spanish lessons from me you can expect a customized cirriculum, including a variety of different methods best suited to your particular learning style (audio, visual, kinesthetic). I start with general vocabulary and common, useful phrases so that you can enjoy speaking SOME spanish right away! As we progress further and as you build your vocabulary, we'll introduce more about grammar, verb conjugation and other language structures so that you can get creative and start to learn how to build sentences using the vocabulary and grammatical skills that you have developed.

A variety of study aids keep Spanish fresh in your mind on a daily basis and since different students learn in different ways, lessons will not involve simply reading through a textbook, but will also include a variety of creative ways to help you learn the language quickly and help you to retain what you've learned!

About Scott
Hey there Trumpeters and Potential Trumpeters!

A few more notes about myself and my background...

I've spent most of my life working as a musician, since 1999, when I was 13. I took to the trumpet on the suggestion of an amazing public school music teacher when I showed up asking to join the jazz band without the ability to play an instrument or even read music...(had no idea what I was doing at the time)!

However, I started taking lessons with him that summer and by the end of the school year I'd gone from bottom chair to lead in every group at school and within a couple of years started performing with my teachers and with professional musicians in the greater Seattle area, then hitting the recording studios. By 15 I was invited to be a guest musician with the Seattle Symphony.

I studied under the Principal Trumpeter of the Seattle
Ballet company from 14 to 18 and went to college with a passion for music. I studied music at the University of Maine and University of Nebraska at Omaha, performing, touring and teaching along the way. During that time, I joined a few small jazz ensembles, along with the university bands as well as a 20+ irish-rock group that I continue to play and tour with today.

I have also worked as a firefighter for over five years, and recently completed my training at Creighton University and earned my license to serve as an EMT in the state of Nebraska...maybe going for paramedic as well. I love working with and helping people!

I have a number of students in the Omaha area now and I would love to meet you (whether for online for online or face to face for in-house lessons) and see if you would like me to help you become the amazing trumpeter and musician that you want to be!

Thanks for your consideration and I look forward to meeting you!
- Scott

About Mary
English language teacher with more than 10 years of experience.

I attended Seton Hall University for Education and Spanish. I attended Rutgers to study teaching English as a Second Language. I am certified in New Jersey.
