Patricia is an AMAZING teacher.

Personality: She is very welcoming, warm, funny and just a positive person to be around which bodes very well when it comes to learning and stepping outside of your comfort zone.

Knowledge: Just by looking at her credentials you know that she has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to music. However, her greatest gift is being able to relay all of that information to someone who may not have a very strong musical background. She is also very adept at making connections making the learning process fun and understandable.

Lessons: I have been taking lessons with Patricia for months now for voice. The greatest part of the lessons are that she does not only focus on improving your voice on a technical level. She helps with mental preparation, ear training, music theory and great deal of other things which helps students to become more well rounded. I believe this also helps students to grow in their area of study much faster.

Misc: Patricia greatly encourages her students to perform. If you are not comfortable going to an open mic, Patricia hosts a performance event for her students. This provides a safe and secure environment for students to express themselves an apply what they have learned in lessons.

I recently performed and while nervous the mental preparation that I described above helped me to "put on a show". I will continue taking lessons with Patricia and I am grateful for everything I have learned and experience in my time.

Patricia is an excellent teacher for all levels. I have worked with her teaching three year old beginner drum group classes, all the way to masterclasses for college students at CUNY on techniques to use when improvising in complex time signatures. She can teach anyone! Patricia makes the lessons fun all the while you gain inspiration. I also really enjoyed the concert she hosted for her students in the Village. Sign up, you won't be disappointed.

I was having a lot of trouble in English all year and it wasn't until I started working with Elyssa that my writing and reading got better. Thanks to her, I ended up getting a 92 on the regents. She is also one of the the sweetest people I've ever met and I can't wait to work together again next year.

Eric is a great teacher of Spanish. He is very professional and methodological in his classes. He uses a lot of different study materials, including online apps that are geared to the topic he is covering. He can switch gears and help in preparing our high school son for his school tests.

I have used Eric for about 5 years now, and he took me from speaking basic Spanish to exceeding more courses definition of Advanced quickly. His teaching background and patience make him an ideal teacher, and he is able to find material that pushes you to the next level well. Now my South American wife has to be polite about me when she speaks to her family about me!

Whether you want it for travel in Latin America, or because you live in an area with lots of native Spanish-speakers, I can help you build your vocabulary and fundamental knowledge of grammatical concepts!
I use a variety of methods, though my teaching is heavily conversation based. I believe conversation needs the foundation for all languages; everything else will fall into place once you learn how to actually express yourself aloud. I also teach using literature/stories/poetry written in the language of focus.
If this is your first time learning a foreign language, Spanish will be your gateway! (And I will be your guide).

About Malka
Hello Potential Students!
I can't wait to start working with you! I know from experience that a good student/teacher relationship is the key for success, so I approach my teaching with positivity, flexibility, and the firm belief that everyone has innate intelligence waiting to be uncovered and harnessed.

I offer my students humor, support and my own expertise in a variety of subjects relating to the field including audition advice, tips on controlling performing nerves, help with diction, text interpretation, and much more! I believe the student/teacher relationship should be based on trust and mutual respect, and that is what I offer.

En Colombia cantamos, ven, cante conmigo!

In Colombia we sing when we talk, not really but thats what we say. My favorite language is my first and I'd love to teach a natural and accessible tongue.

About Johan
To me, there are few things that are more rewarding then seeing someone take on a new idea and make it their own.
I am primarily a musician, working in the city but find that teaching others both the language of music and my native tongue, Spanish, are a fascinating and positive way to give back to my community.
Creativity, honesty, and patience are the pillars I work off of; and I know full well that each person requires something different of me, so I will always work towards tailoring the learning process to you and your needs.

I have been teaching Spanish for well over 20 years. My classes are very dynamic, creative and full of enthusiasm, with lots of fun material for adults, and children as well. Although I target the four skills for learning a language properly, I focused my classes on speaking; my greatest satisfaction is to see my students speak fluently in their second language. You'll have lots of fun, will learn lots of things, including grammar without noticing it , and will have a ton of fun!!! HAPPY LEARNING!!!
