Informative and patient classes centered around students needs and requirements.

About Rene
Knowing at the age of 5 that music was my life, by being brought up surrounded by praise music and gospel, my early exposure to music helped me to find every Instrument and style just my thing! I wanted to play everything and learn all aspects of music. I started with singing in the children's choir and then developed into piano and music theory. At the age of 12 I began to learn classical guitar, and at 15 took on various styles like Flamenco, Jazz and Rock. I graduated from High School having played in the school band achieving recognition In national Institutions Like IAJE (International Association for Jazz Education) and state band finals. I was also composing from a very early age, and at 18 released my first album (self-titled) which can still be heard and purchased today through various music outlets, since i have released over 15
albums with various ensembles and bands. In college I already knew from my previous experience that I wanted to teach and pass on the joy that music brought to my life. I studied Music Theory and Jazz and finished my degree in Music Education. I have been teaching all in all for about 14 yrs. And I have enjoyed every minute I have spent with my students learning as much from them, as them from me. I am looking forward to meeting new and eager students who really want to bring their inner music out to share with the rest of us music aficionados! and develop their skills to the peak of their abilities.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching method ranges depending on the student. I believe in my experience that everyone learns differently, therefore everyone develops at their own pace. I try to find key strengths in each student and expose this to their advantage, using their abilities to further develop their skills, this method has shown the most promising results and students usually find themselves playing and performing just a couple of months after their first lessons. Part of my method involves a lot of performance and recital opportunities to help break any fears and inhibitions a student may bring with them. Music is about sharing, so an early exposure to this method helps to strengthen and stabilize a core acceptance of a students style and path, giving them and those close to them a very clear picture of their development and achievements.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Has all instruments at both his home and college studio

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson material, song charts and a progression scale. I require student to have an Instrument and recommended technique literature.

*** Specialties ***
My classical training began in High School with Influences in Segovia, and Romero I studied classical for 4 yrs. and trained in Jazz and Improvisation with performances In Big Band and group ensemble. Also sang and played in the school gospel choir.

****Personal Statement*****

If you needed a reason

There is no question that music touches us instantly and activates images, emotions and memories that linger with us throughout our lives. As a casual listener or an obsessive music elitist, there are times in our lives when we get blown away by a sound so unique our entire body vibrates and resonates with the touch of something out of this world. I can honestly say when this happens to me I feel as close to a spiritual connection than anything I have experienced otherwise. I believe it is these exact events that have triggered my need to be completely involved in the making, performing and consuming of music. The creative process, to me, is the single obvious reason we exist in this world. We create and share, learn and interpret, build on previous ideas and inspire others to perfect upon this process. It is no doubt a very humbling experience to realize you are part of it all. During this process you come to realize how important you are as an Individual, how there is no other vessel like you in this world, nor has there ever been or ever will. You are here now and your voice, your talent, your gift is an instrument to the great choir of the human spirit. No one but you can relate this, a reason to be, to create, to give.

My teacher and I spoke by phone for my first lesson, but her phone had poor reception so I was not able to get the benefit of a full lesson. The second and third lessons were unsuccessful as well I need an alternative so that I can work with another teacher locally. I am not familiar enough with this on line process to be successful with my lessons. I have paid for lessons that i have not received. Please advise.

I've been teaching Spanish for 24 years and my students have improved their grades , passed their Spanish tests, decided to travel to Spanish-speaking countries, become better qualified for jobs, enriched their relationships with friends and family and more! Within a few lessons you will feel empowered to communicate: speaking and understanding. Reading and writing skills, grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary will also be addressed as needed.I teach conversational Spanish, SAT subject test in Spanish, CLEP Spanish, AP Spanish language.Within a few lessons you will feel I have the age-appropriate resources, games and creative ideas to instill your love for learning Spanish and getting to know the Spanish culture.

About Carina
I love teaching all ages and levels because I enjoy seeing students learn and achieve personal, social or professional goals. Everybody can learn if I respect the student's needs, pace and learning style, and if I tap into his/ her interests and strengths. A comprehensive approach that includes speaking, reading, writing and listening is necessary, however I focus primarily on communication . I provide knowledge, fun, creativity and flexibility to guarantee a successful pleasant experience for all students.
I am a native from Argentina. I moved to the US in 1996, therefore I can relate to the feelings involved in learning a foreign language. I live a bilingual life raising my daughter who is 14 and my son who is 6 years old . I travel to Argentina once or twice a year. I teach conversational Spanish, SAT subject test in Spanish,
CLEP Spanish, AP Spanish language.

I have been literally to 4 youtube teachers and though I have nothing bad to say about any of them, i know that I need a long term teacher that I can see myself growing with as a singer. Our personalities just meshed. She knows how to make one feel comfortable. She is very encouraging to students with zero self confidence like me. I think I have found the teacher I’ve been looking for in Elena! i’m excited to see what she can do to transform my voice. Her resume as well as her reviews( students spoke highly of her character) are what stood out for me out of thousands of teachers online! It is also important that I love to listen to my teacher’s voice and i love her voice😊

He is very generous with his time, easy to get along with, and always makes sure you are engaged and enjoying your learning.

College Point, NY

View Full Profile

Native speaker (originally from Cuba). I have a Bachelor in Art History and Spanish Literature from University of Havana, Cuba. Awarded excellence in grammar and creative writing. I have experience teaching Spanish to students of very young ages to adults. All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Learning a language should be a joyful experience and one that will be a positive change in your life. Practicing conversation is always the best way to learn a language, specially having the opportunity to talk with a native Spanish speaker.

About Yali
I received a Master of Design in Fashion, Body and Garment at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) and a Bachelor in Art History at the University of Havana, Cuba. I’m a multidisciplinary designer that blurs the line between fashion and visual arts. I launched in 2009 a project titled “Normal Is Good” centered in the development of clothing collections with presentations in Havana, Cuba; Paris, France; Liverpool, England and Miami, Chicago, NY, US.

Once I moved to New York I participated in an internship at Victor de Souza Company and I was quickly hired for the position of Production Manager and began assisting Mr. De Souza in executing and coordinating fashion shows.

As an artist and designer I feel more inclined towards education than working in the fashion industry. I feel great joy teaching and this would be a wonderf
ul opportunity for me to share my knowledge. The lessons are customized to your needs. I will only cover the subject that you are interested in, and are relevant to achieving your goals. Even if your goals are not that clear I can help you to discover what is it that you want.

Sometimes I have been approached by people who, although they do not want to pursue a career in fashion or art, want advice on how customize their image. I can help you to express your individuality and embrace your freedom.

As a designer I have also collaborated producing the costume designs for plays like: "Post-Plástica", Museo del Barrio, NY (2012) and "Schwanze-Beast", Vermont Performance Lab, Vermont (2015).

In 2015 I released the film-documentary, "Normal Is Good (I like America and America likes me)" at Gene Siskel Film Center, Chicago. "All the things she says" is my most recent solo exhibition at Galería de la Biblioteca Pública Rubén Martínez Villena, Havana, Cuba (2017). I was selected as part of 2017 NYFA Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program for Performing and Literary Arts, New York Foundations for the Arts, NY, US.

My knowledge of art and design and my international perspective, are elements that enrich my approach to education.

Yali is a WONDERFUL Spanish teacher. She teaches my 13-year-old daughter in such an engaging way that my daughter insists on *not* taking Spanish at school but instead learning solely with Yali (and also when she's experiencing full immersion in a Spanish-speaking country). The fact that Yali is from Cuba and a magical fashionista is a super fun added bonus.

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!
