It is time to achieve your goals, and I definitely can help you with that. I dedicated my life to the "Art of Teaching", and I have been helping people to improve their music skills ever since. 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!

In 1995 BES Inc has chosen me to become a Project Manager eventually I become the Director of Strategies for South America division, very exciting position! I lived all over the Globe with great International experience (from living in Thailand, Japan, all over Asia, North America, Europe and South America. My tutoring policy is not just simply to teach Science, International Business or a second language Portuguese, Spanish I always want to teach students more than Acting as well to Practice Communications Skills
I learned all the Portuguese I know from taking many different Portuguese classes at college, including grammar, linguistics, and literature and from living in the "Portuguese House" (at the Foreign Language Student Residence, part of on-campus housing at BYU) for two semesters. I specialize in teaching Portuguese to speakers of Spanish, but I can also teach anyone who wants to learn, even without any other prior language experience. I have grown to love the Portuguese language and the people of the various Portuguese-speaking countries around the world.
I hail from Walla Walla, Washington, home of the "famous" sweet onions. I can't begin to express how much I love languages!! I have studied 8 so far (Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Italian, Swedish, and Dutch) and I teach 5 (Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, and Japanese), and want to keep learning new languages throughout the rest of my life. I love to work with students so that's why I've kept my rates low--to make sure more people can have the opportunity to learn these languages. I have a down-to-earth style and I allow my students to guide their own learning in a student-structured, individualized way. As of June 2019, I have taught multiple students different languages, among whom are three students I have been teaching between 7 and 9 months, who have all improved considerably and continue to progress steadily
. I am positive I can help you come to understand the wonderful world that is language and to learn how amazing it is to be able to say the same thing in so many different ways, and how much better it is to be able to communicate with someone in his/her native language instead of having to resort to English. Let's do this!!
Note: I have not had any connectivity problems for quite a while now so be assured that I can provide quality instruction with no issues.
Since I'm absolute beginner in Japanese, I found Paul to be the perfect fit for me. If you are young or adult (me) I would highly recommend taking classes with Paul at least for your beginning classes. I'm sure he would be the perfect fit for you too.

I am making amazing progress with Paul as my Instructor! I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to become proficient in Japanese! 5 Stars +!

Only one lesson so far, GREAT EXPERIENCE! So nice to have someone very knowledgeable, patient and gives clear. I made a beautiful necklace. Thank you so much 😊.
*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.
"Great first lesson. Very excited to continue. Very active and interactive lesson."
"Very nice and even went over our time limit so we could finish the lesson!"
"I really liked how Nicolás was so patient and committed to my learning. He planned the lessons very well so we could do the most in the time we had. I alw
ays felt motivated to keep improving thanks to the way he explained every subject. Also, he makes the lesson so fun and enjoyable that you really have a great time while learning. I totally recommend him."
"Marcia is a great choice if you are serious about learning Portuguese and having fun in the process. She tailors to her student needs, creates fun activit
ies, and gives you plenty of speaking practice. I have studied other languages in the past without actually feeling I was learning the language. Studying with Marcia allowed me to quickly progress and learn. Today, I still do practice lessons, watch videos in Brazilian Portuguese, and try to listen to the radio in Portuguese as much as possible because my lessons with Marcia keep me motivated to keep learning. She is a great instructor!"
"Márcia is a clear expert when it comes to Portuguese culture and language. I have been a student of Marcia for a few months and I honestly look forward to
our classes every time. She is very funny, comfortable, and familiar. Her classes are a mixture of academics and fun! She is very flexible and a lovely person to speak with-- I highly recommend."
"Marcia is a great teacher, obviously very experienced."
"Marcia, is very patient and kind. She presents the information in a way that it is to follow and understand! I really like her!!"
"I thoroughly enjoyed my first lesson with Márcia! Her warm and encouraging personality sets one at ease, an important quality in a teacher. Márcia clear
ly has solid conversational and grammatical knowledge of Portuguese, and she, even more importantly, possesses the skills required to assess students' strengths/weaknesses and tailor lessons to her students' needs."
