I have a Master's Degree of Education, K-12 certification, and 8 years of experience teaching Spanish in schools and tutoring adults and children. The key to learning to communicate in a new language is to hear and use the language in context. I teach vocabulary using stories that create with my students, and we recycle that vocabulary in conversations, role plays and new stories we create together. By acquiring language naturally in this way, students are best able to learn and retain vocabulary and grammatical structures.
I tailor my lessons to my students' goals and interests. However, I have a general system and self-created curriculum that I successfully apply to most students. When I work with beginners, we focus on the 16 highest frequency verbs and most useful prepositions and expressions in the language, so that my students are able to express themselves on a variety of topics in just a few lessons. I incorporate authentic resources (resources from the Spanish-speaking ...

Ellen is a wonderful instructor with an intuitive sense of how to make progress speaking Spanish. She is also a lovely person and I recommend her highly.
Nancy
I am having so much fun learning Spanish with Ellen! She is very encouraging and patient. I didn't know any Spanish before, just some French. I am surprised by how much we can actually talk about. I like that she gives me scripts of our conversations to read for homework along with recordings of herself reading them. I listen to these often between lessons and find that it is really helpful.

Candida is a very learned and talented vocal teacher. She has a vast amount of knowledge and is constantly expanding her understanding of vocal technique and pedagogy. This includes not just Western signing technique, but also an understanding of the importance of diverse and inclusive technique and de-colonizing classical singing technique.

Candida has identified the techniques I use when I sing and has suggested ways to improve while also constantly checking in to see how I want my voice to sound. She has been encouraging even during the times I lost motivation, and she has put so much work into our sessions. Candida created a personalized lesson plan with me to help keep my notes and progress organized. She has had to think of many different ways of presenting information to me when I have not understood how to use my voice in new ways, and she has never failed to find a way to explain how to create sound. Candida’s teaching does not simply focus on the voice but focuses on mental and physical wellness that is necessary in order to understand how to use the voice. I would recommend Candida to anyone.
Hai
Candida is a great instructor and has really helped me to develop and learn about my voice. She is very knowledgeable and gives me the right technique/tool/exercise and feedback that I need at each junction of my singing journey. My experience has been fun, interesting, enlightening and even surprising at times. I totally recommend her!
Bea
She is an excellent teacher and is able to create a different method based on student’s need.

Languages are best learned by using them - we don't learn to talk in our native tongue by reading a book! From beginning vocabulary to sentence construction, use your language as much as you can! Whatever your use for French, or if you're learning it for school requirements, let me know how I can help!
