Hello and Welcome to the right place to enhance your knowledge!
I am a Conservatory trained Guitar player singer songwriter with a
Music Theory-Harmony degree from the Athens Conservatory

I have studied Jazz Guitar in Stockholm and in Athens.

I have been teaching guitar for many years and I have had many happy and satisfied students, some of them are now professional musicians.

All of my students love my lessons and benefit greatly from them because I love to watch them making progress and becoming better with each lesson.

After the first lesson I realize what the student wants to achieve and I am making a plan to help him/her get there enjoying every step on the way .

Every lesson includes Music Theory ,which the student learns wh

ile playing the songs they like while introducing them to scales ,rhythm and lead playing, ear training and how to play and jam with others.

I have been playing regularly at BBKING`s in NYC from Jan. 2006 till 2018
performed at the Lincoln Center playing festivals in U.S.A and in Europe.

I consider myself a Blues-Rock specialist with a vast knowledge of the Blues, the British Blues and classic Rock.

My playing is influenced by the British masters such as
Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, David Gilmour, Robin Trower,

Spiros is my guitar instructor for over a year now, I’m so happy to be learning with such an amazing Guitar master 😊.
Not only did I learn how to play, he actually thought me how to read music and work on my vocals.
I couldn’t be happier 😃.
I absolutely recommend to take him as your teacher, you will not regret it!

Giuliana is a wonderful teacher and guide for Italian language and culture. I really enjoyed our small class and she managed our different levels of experience very gracefully. We all learned a great deal over the course of a year together and we miss her immensely!

Sam
Giuliana is the most patient and encouraging teacher that I have yet encountered. She truly strives to make Italian entertaining as well as simple. Prior to my lessons with her, learning a whole new language seemed to be a daunting task, as well as the seemingly insurmountable goal of losing my native accent while speaking. Through our online lessons, she has taught me grammar and a vast vocabulary that served me very well in my trip to Italy. If there is one teacher who can truly teach the language quickly and easily, it's Giuliana.

Giuliana is an extraordinary teacher and instructor who makes learning fun and exciting. She is patient and accommodating, and has a true knack and talent for making sure you truly understand the material. I highly recommend her

About Beverly

In 2013 I gave up a longstanding career in Logistics and Imports to pursue my passion for fitness and education, and I have not looked back since. I enjoy helping others to learn and expand their horizons through language and movement. One of the reasons I became an ESL instructor is because I wanted to experience culture and diversity. I am truly blessed to have been given this wonderful opportunity to impart my own knowledge while learning from others.

I am certified as a teacher of English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) and English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). I am also ACE-Certified as a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor, specialized in Core Fitness, Senior Fitness Training and Functional Fitness. I train clients in their homes and online. Half of my day is dedicated to teaching ESL and the other half to f

“I've tried to learn English for a long time and, though I learned a big amount of words , I wasn't able of having a short conversation with nobody. Teacher Beverly have been making a great job by identifying my difficulties and then working hard straight on it at abslutely enjoyable online classes. I'm really happy because in a few time I've improved my English skills as I've never did before, nevertheless I'm sure that there are so much to be learnt from her yet.”

About Ra

Hola!

My name is Ra. I am a dancer, poet, and educator. I specialize in teaching conversational Spanish, Latin Dance, and Spoken Word Poetry. I am a native Spanish speaker. Originally from Puerto Rico, I grew up between PR and New York City. I graduated from The New School University and lived abroad several years teaching language in Bilingual Schools. I began my dance studies back home in Puerto Rico with traditional Boricua roots music like Bomba y Plena. I now work for several dance companies/organizations, perform spoken word poetry, and teach dance/poetry/spanish to children and adults. As a Teaching Artist I aim to help my students become more comfortable whether it's with Spanish or learning to dance Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, or Flamenco.

*If you are booking me for Spanish Lessons please note that I focus only on conversati

onal Spanish. I only work with students who have some knowledge of Spanish and are looking to practice conversation and better the skill.*

About Tomoko

When it comes to learning a language, I believe that correct grammatical understanding and the amount of output is equally important. Hence I focus on both grammar and speaking/writing practice during my lesson for the best result and you'll feel that your Japanese is improving!

My previous Japanese one-on-one tutoring experiences are as follows;
Tandem language assistant at Ritumeikain University in Kyoto, Registered tutor at Kyoto International Cultural Association and SuperProf in Paris, Private tutoring in Paris and Melbourne.

Are you looking to start learning the language but don't know where to start?
Are you a long time Japanese leaner looking to jump up to the next level?
I'm here to help you out! Anyone at any level is welcomed!

I would love to share my passion for the language and culture with my students. Looking

forward to hearing from you!

The lesson moved at a comfortable pace. As this is our first intro to Japanese lessons, we had some difficulties with word pronunciation, but Tomoko was patient with us. She helped us break the words down and understand the sentence structures.
We look forward to our next lesson.
