I LOVE to teach, and because of this passion, I know how to listen to you, design a perfect lesson that will be exactly what you are looking for, and make your learning process enjoyable!
I have worked with Bill as a vocalist for several years, and have always been impressed with his singing voice. Now having studied with him privately, I am even more impressed with his teaching skills—fun, encouraging, and informative, his lessons are not to be missed! Also, very reasonably priced!

I've worked with Bill in multiple capacities since we met. He has an incredible instrument and a fantastic attitude. He is always willing to help you with whatever your particular need may be, and he's a very kind and engaging vocal instructor. He is passionate about what he does, and equally passionate about helping you with what you do!

Bill is an awesome instructor! He's versatile, so I can go to him for arrangements issues, vocal coaching, choir questions and whenever I need to record an accompaniment for a song. AND he's also fun! I highly recommend!

Melissa is a miracle worker! My mother-in-law moved to the United States 40 years ago unable to speak english and while she has done a good job at learning on her own, she had significant gaps in her ability to effectively communicate. For her 68th birthday, I bought her lessons with Melissa. My mother-in-law told me I was wasting my money because she couldn't learn anything new. Well, needless to say, she can learn and with Melissa's excellent tutelage has dramatically increased her ability to speak and comprehend english. This has enabled a new level of confidence and freedom that she did not previously have and is a game changer for her. I attribute her improvement directly to Melissa's ability to understand her student's needs and personalities and craft and deliver a quality, tailored curriculum. After our first round of classes, my mother-in-law is excited to continue the lessons and has a renewed curiosity and interest in learning. Great job and thank you Melissa!!!

Melissa has a lovely calming personality. She made us feel completely at ease while learning a foreign language. She was prepared and tailored the lesson for our specific goals and level.
She displayed an expert knowledge of the language, but was still able to teach beginners. Plus we could tell she really loved Portuguese.
The online format was great. Cant wait for the next lesson.
January 15, 2018
Melissa is the best! Extremely knowledgeable and patient with her students. I highly recommend her.
Are you looking to quickly learn and communicate in Portuguese? Are you traveling abroad to Brazil and need to speak to people for business or school? My courses in Brazilian Portuguese language immersion will teach you the basics of conjugation and vocabulary specific to conversational Portuguese that will get you far on your travels. With over ten years of experience in the study of Latin languages, and personal immersion experiences in Brazil and Mozambique, I've been able to hone and master the craft of learning language through immersion. I learned to speak Portuguese fluently in less than two months, and you can too! Let's get off book and into the beautiful, dynamic culture of Brazil!
I’m Kaya. I am a professional singer and entertainer, specializing in Jazz Music and Education. For five years I have played in a band singing in multiple languages such as Spanish and Portuguese, spanning genres such as Jazz, Gospel, Soul, Blues, Folk, R&B, Rock, Bossa Nova and Samba. I have a bachelor’s degree in Political Theory with a specialization in Latin languages and vocal performance. I play classical piano and classical guitar, in addition to vocal performance I have studied bossa nova rhythm guitar. I currently am teaching a residency to young students in Thailand called: "Voice and Rhythm"
I am a native New Yorker who grew up around people who spoke many languages from all over the globe. I am not a native speaker in Spanish or Portuguese, and so many of my peers would ask me: how is it you learned to speak th
ese languages so quickly and so fluently? The trick to learning a new language begins with confidence. Just like learning a new instrument, you don’t want to allow the mechanism of your tool to trip you up when you want to communicate. Through techniques of active listening, immersion, and cultural integration, I have been successful at teaching students how to blossom within a new language, culture, and music.
Paulo Freire, Brazilian author of a critically acclaimed book on pedagogy once said: “The teacher is of course an artist, but being an artist does not mean that he or she can make the profile, can shape the students. What the educator does in teaching is to make it possible for the students to become themselves.” When I teach, I like my students to be able to experience their own creativity within a new context, learning more about themselves through new eyes and perspective.
I’m Brazilian so I can teach you how to speak like a native. Personalized lessons according to students goals.
I'm a rock blues guitar player, graduated from the Los Angeles College of Music. I've played with some of the most renowned musicians of nowadays, such as Guthrie Govan and Philip Bynoe (Steve Vai).
My debut album was released in 2016, featuring some special guests such as the guitar legend Scott Henderson. I've toured all over Brazil, Mexico and the U.S. promoting my original music and giving guitar masterclasses. I have over 10 years of experience teaching guitar (electric and acoustic), ukulele and bass.

I am a native speaker, I will be able to teach my students pronunciation , grammar, and conversation.

*Music* I'm a piano and guitar appreciator since childhood and music amplifies our horizon and vision of life. Now, in the same way that someone gave me my first musical instructions, I am doing the same, giving lessons to beginners.
*Computer Skills* I've been working with excel, ms access, linux for almost 30 years (Ms project 15YRS), I basically started when I was 16 while I was assisting my dad who was an state auditor and had to do a lot with accounting data.
Since the good usage of information values gold, I have been using these IT tools intensively throughout my whole professional career and they definitely provided me a good growth.
So, now I'm sharing part of the lessons learned during these years, teaching these important computer skills: Excel, Ms Access, Linux, Ms Project.
