Students will develop a strong vocal technique and build heal
thy vocal habits. They will learn all aspects needed to become a well rounded singer: diction, interpretation, musicianship, breath support and focus, all of this while having fun! Also, they will acquire the tools to keep up the work they've done during their lessons in the time between meetings with the teacher.
Pianists will learn to read music and play by ear while acquiring a healthy technique to avoid any injuries.

You'll be learning to play on a beautiful Kawai upright piano.

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!

Kathleen is a very pleasant person to learn from. She is patient and very willing to redo if you need a rerun on a step. She is very knowledgeable and has a lot of learning things to share. I love my origami lessons, looking forward to each new experience. Kathleen is a very nice person.

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.

When I teach piano or Spanish, I encourage students to challenge themselves. To play instruments in public or to speak a foreign language regularly with other people will definitely help them get over the fear of 'looking ridiculous'. You don't have to be at a very advanced level to communicate with an instrument or a language.

I've spoken Spanish natively my whole life and played the piano since age five. My first Spanish student was my Minnesotan husband!

Immersive, intensive and interactive approach to Romance languages through folk music and acting and interacting in group set up or one to one.

I believe in learning while laughing and comparing to a better and faster understanding.

We can focus in English and Spanish or included other Romance languages like French, Italian and Portuguese or even all of them at the same time.
All these languages have a very similar root, just need to learn the different approach and in few sessions you will have an understanding of the whole Romance world.
Allowing and speeding the learning and the fluidity of your conversation exponentially.

About Veronica
Born in Spain I have lived in 8 different countries in Europe and America.
I live to compare and enrich my culture and share the knowledge with the world.

Beside comparing Romance languages to one another for better understanding and deeper learning we will be comparing between the different kind of Spanish on the globe.
So we will not only learn Castilian but a wider ranger of South American expression and idioms so we can be fully understood where ever we go!

Hola! Let's have fun learning a new language. We play games, have conversations, and practice key vocabulary to reach your Spanish goals.

About Mary
Welcome! I am a former teacher with 10+ years for experience. I teach all levels of English, Spanish, and test prep, especially math.

I attended Seton Hall University for Education and Spanish where I was able to travel to Mexico, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Spain, and Costa Rica. After graduation I attended Rutgers for English as a Second Language. I am certified in New Jersey.

In our first lesson I like to see what level students are, ask what their goals are, and begin lessons that target those goals. Personalized lessons are the most effective and motivating. I love to help my students accomplish their goals and enjoy the process!

Mary is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and bright and tailors her lessons to fit the needs and desires of the learner. I enjoy our sessions very much and have learned more Spanish working with her than in all of my past attempts to learn languages combined (from years of courses to Rosetta Stone). In ten hours I feel I have a good foundation for understanding the language and can form sentences and engage in conversations on my own. I look forward to continuing with her and learning even more!

Hola!

I am a Cuban American with a love of the Spanish language. Not only did I grow up using Spanish with family, I have studied it for 11 years. It all started in my 7th grade class with Sra. Claudia and continued through College. I was a Spanish Minor at the University of Minnesota, I completed a semester in Costa Rica, and I substitute teach at Windom Spanish Immersion Elementary. I am strong in identifying children's strengths and needs and use that to tailor to the student's learning. I enjoy being playful and productive. Nos vemos pronto!

I endeavor to help my students by putting into practice all the experience I have acquired as a tutor and teacher over time. I like to work in an organized way, always having a lesson plan at hand before teaching, but the student comes first so my technique includes flexibility since every human being is different and therefore learns differently. I take what we call multiple intelligence theory very seriously since that helps me to adapt effectively to the learning system of my students. It fills me with great satisfaction to see the needs of my students full so I am always willing to give my best in every meeting with them.

In total I have more than ten years of experience as a teacher and tutor. My mother tongue is Spanish I consider myself totally competent not only with the language but also with the culture to guide those in that field. I studied English as a second language for three years in the Dominican Republic including a teacher training course which successfully trained

About Amelfi
I graduated from the Open University for Adults (Uapa) where I graduated a degree in foreign languages. Having gone to the University was a wonderful experience since I could see and experience what teaching really includes. I really enjoy not only what I learned but also how those great teachers touched my heart with their way of handling teaching. I try to do the same with my students by putting into practice all the experience I have acquired as a tutor and teacher over time.

My mother tongue is Spanish I consider myself totally competent not only with the language but also with the culture to guide those in that field. I studied English as a second language for three years in the Dominican Republic including a teacher training course which successfully trained me as an English teacher to teach children, teenagers and adults whose native language is Spanish. Additionally, I dedicate a large part of my time to volunteer work with deaf people in my community teaching Bible classes for free, I understand that being surrounded with deaf people for more than 7 years has given me the necessary skills to interact with them and guide them in whatever is necessary.

I will always be available to my students when they need it. Feel free to contact me. You can ask me any additional questions you have and I will gladly answer them. Let's get in touch!

I've been studying Spanish since my first words. Having taken Spanish throughout my adolescent life, I then completed a minor at Texas Christian University. I did this in part by Studying Abroad in Spain last summer, where I learned many of the grammar and colloquialism differences between Latin Spanish and Castilian Spanish.

I'm friendly, patient, and always want to help you speak and sound your best. Let me know what you want to work on and we'll find the right lessons and pace for you!

About Carroll
My first words were in Spanish and I've been studying and speaking since then! I've traveled to Spain multiple times where I served as a translator for my family, and later studied in a Spanish-Only school for six weeks.

I'm patient and want to get to know your Spanish level and your specific needs. I am always happy to have free consultation sessions prior to tutoring to learn more about what you want and need out of the tutoring experience.
