Creativity!!! Jam every class, learn to songwrite, to create your melodies, change chords, write lyrics and produce your songs! Acoustic and digital support, many tools to express your ideas, kids to adults!

Been taking online singing classes with Candida for almost a year. She is wonderful and could not imagine a better teacher. She meets you where you are in terms of learning. She is very soulful in her teaching so she incorporates naturally using your instincts as well as combing technical techniques. I am so happy to continue with her. I would recommend her to anyone

Candida is the best music teacher I have come across, she is knowledgable, talented, supportive and constantly positive. She has helped me so much with my voice and ear training from a technical standpoint and more importantly as a mentor has been patient and supportive.

Initially I like to evaluate the student's current comprehension level (regardless of years studied) to better select the appropriate starting point. From there, if there is a specific subject matter or course work/syllabus for a class that needs to be followed, I can tailor lessons to fit those needs. Throughout lessons, I like to bring in elements such as cartoons, newspapers, movie clips, etc. to aid in understanding everyday usage & make learning practical and pertinent to the student.

**30 minute lessons are available for students interested in Conversational Portuguese practice ONLY (for Intermediate/Advanced Only). Please send me a message if you are interested & we can discuss how to arrange through TakeLessons.

About Kenji Luis
I grew up speaking English, Portuguese & Japanese in a multilingual family and from a young age developed a strong affinity & penchant for languages. I attended an English-Portuguese Bilingual school through 6th grade and studied Japanese 4 years in high school, along with weekend Japanese school classes. In college I went on to major in International Relations & Diplomacy with a concentration in French studies, also honing my Spanish that I had picked up along the way (with Romance Languages, I have a very easy time of language absorption). I've gone on to work for international companies wherein my language skills have been highly sought after, translating & communicating often in all my language strengths.

I have been studying Brazilian Portuguese for about 2 years now and have found great success learning it, since it is so close to Spanish. I would love to help you take your first steps towards learning more about this beautiful culture and language.

About Mark
Hey everybody! Hola and Ni Hao. My name is Mark and I'm a Language Tutor, Yoga Instructor & Organic Farmer with an International MBA and minors in both Spanish and Mandarin. With over 20 years of foreign language study, and 10 years teaching foreign languages to others, I know exactly what works and what doesn't when it comes to learning a new language.

I recently moved to Aurora, CO in order to be closer to my family since I have spent the past 12 years traveling the world.

I am a certified K-12 substitute teacher in the state of Colorado, and will be teaching a Spanish immersion class for 3 months starting in January. I have the flexibility to work with you around your schedule and will create a customized lesson plan that fits your needs and unique learning methods.

My main requirement of you as a student is to be committ
ed and dedicated to learning the language we are studying and to work on the homework assignments I provide.

Hope to talk to you soon!

Mark

My son was struggling in his second year of high school honors Mandarin. He had immediate improvement in his grade and confidence level once Mark began tutoring him. Mark is very reliable, flexible with scheduling, personable, and very prompt in responding to email. I highly recommend him.

Dynamic classes, always meeting the needs of the student.

About Victor
I'm 24 yo, quick, ingenious, stimulating, alert and outspoken. I'm resourceful and solve new and challenging problems. I'm adapt at generating conceptual possibilities and then analyzing them strategically. I'm good at reading other people. I get bored by routine. I will seldom do the same thing the same way. I'm apt to turn to one new interest after another. I have years of experience in teaching children and adults. I use MBTI as my main tool, knowing that each person has a different way to learn. I consider myself funny and kind, I'm not a robot while I'm teaching. I taught in an Language Center for 4 years and I've been traveling around the globe in order to improve my knowledge about different country where English is the first language. Will be a pleasure to share all my experiences with you.

Victor is a really, really good teacher!! He's funny, engaging, he cares about your experience and helping you learn the way you learn best, and at your pace. That doesn't mean he's too soft or let's it be too easy, because he does challenge you. He tells you before you start that some lessons will be easier, and others will be difficult. All in all, I think he's pretty awesome, and amazing to work with!!

Personalized, tailored lessons, supplementing courses you already are taking or complete language lessons.

In my language classes you will receive assistance with:
• understanding content
• clarity in writing
• vocabulary
• cultural comprehension
• grammar
• sentence structure

About Rachel
Hello! 

Are you looking for some help with elementary level math or reading? Do you need assistance with writing or editing a high school or college paper? Are you interested in learning a language like English, Spanish, or Portuguese? Or do you just need some supplemental lessons to really help you understand your class material?

Then contact me!

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a bachelors degree in International Studies, Spanish, and Global Cultures. While an undergraduate, I studied abroad in Ecuador. I also received a Certificate in Youth Development from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, as well as a Certificate in Conversational Portuguese from Liberty University. I continue to further my education by taking Public Policy masters courses from Liberty University.

I am passionate about lea
rning, and I delight in helping others succeed in their academic and language pursuits. For over 14 years, I have been tutoring clients of all ages in various subjects. In Lithuania, I taught youth conversational English. While in college, I took several elementary education courses, assisted other college students with their homework, and tutored grade school students in math and reading. Following graduation, I continued to work with younger students in an after-school program setting, and for several years I have been teaching private language lessons to adults and children.

While I tutor several subjects, I really enjoy helping clients learn a new language. In this globalized world, I believe that learning another language is invaluable; being able to communicate in a non-native tongue not only improves your self-confidence, but it also helps you see the world from a new perspective. I love that knowing foreign languages has given me insight into other cultures and allowed me to form deep relationships with people who do not know any English.

In my language classes you will receive assistance with:
• understanding content
• clarity in writing
• vocabulary
• cultural comprehension
• grammar
• sentence structure

As a teacher, I delight in helping my students find success, and I strive to create a relaxed, fun, and happy classroom. I work with you at your pace and tailor lessons to your needs. It is my goal for you to have a better grasp of the subject matter and to equip you with the tools you need to succeed.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling and learning about other cultures, being creative, going on outdoor adventures, playing cards and board games, singing and dancing, reading, and watching movies.

Experience & Education: 
• 14+ years experience tutoring Spanish, Conversational English, ESL, Elementary/Middle School/college subjects, writing/editing papers 
• 20+ years speaking Spanish with experience living in a Spanish-speaking country 
• University of Wisconsin graduate with 3.9 GPA 
• B.A. in Spanish, International Studies, and Global Cultures 
• Public Policy masters courses
• Elementary Education courses 
• Portuguese courses
