Utilizo la aplicación Zoom para lecciones de inglés interactivas en vivo desde la comodidad de su hogar.

Durante cinco años en Suiza, enseñé inglés como segundo idioma a todos los niveles y todas las edades en la Escuela Internacional de Idiomas Inlingua en la ciudad bilingüe de Biel / Bienne.

Esto incluyó lecciones tanto grupales como individuales, desde principiantes hasta estudiantes avanzados que estudian para los exámenes TEFL, TOEFL y Proficiency.

Después de eso, pasé tres años en España como director de la misma franquicia de idiomas en Santa Cruz de Tenerife, donde mis deberes incluían preparar a los estudiantes para los exámenes, programas para jóvenes de la escuela de verano, lecciones privadas y grupales, coordinar la programación y trabajar con principiantes a través de los intermedios hasta los más avanzados.

El método Inlingua se basa en la inmersión total donde todos los diálogos y ejercicios se llevan a cabo únicamente en el idioma de destino. Como tal, he enseñado

I've played guitar off and on since my teens, but was self-taught. I had the basic skills to play along with most songs, but no understanding of how to build a song or a melody. In the year I've spent with Jeff, he opened my eyes to music theory in a way that is instantly applicable. I am much more comfortable improvising around a chord progression. I can see the patterns in songs and how and when to utilize different scales and modes.

Jeff's book with Schell Barkley, Fingering Mastery - scales and modes for the guitar fretboard, demystifies these topics with images and patterns that are different from any other theory book I've seen. His backing tracks provide the foundation to apply these patterns, and his demonstrations during lessons bring them together using examples from standards and popular songs.

Last thing - Jeff has an incredibly strong understanding of world music and music history, much of which is earned through decades of playing live music around the world. I find this adds a lot to the experience of a lesson with him.

I recommend Jeff without reservation.
Randa
The music theory that he taught me makes it easy to play along with any song!

A patient and caring teacher, sensitive to the student's needs. He taught what I wanted to know by teaching me what I needed.

*** Lesson Details ***
I strongly believe that, if every child would be provided with an ideal environment, would gain extraordinary ability. There are no exceptions. No one can tell how able man is by the nature. What is known is the ability that is spoiled or developed. It cannot be denied that most children speak their native languages beautifully by learning about 3000-4000 words by age 5 or 6. Nothing can clearer demonstrate of the original power of the human mind. Through the years of studying and teaching music I realized that this is the most important concept for developing each kid's talent, to increase his or her ability to the maximum. Therefore I am combining the great methods of teaching violin. The Suzuki method and the Russian school method. Suzuki method helps at the earliest stage of playing an instrument and I am using later Russian school method for more advanced period of studying.

Tigran is a skillful, kind, patient and honest teacher. I’m a beginning adult learner and have been progressing very quickly with his help. Tigran’s teaching is structured and organized while keeping the lessons challenging and interesting enough to want to keep going. I value his time and knowledge. I also intend to continue learning the violin from Tigran for the long term. HIGHLY recommend!

Caleb is awesome. He has single handedly made us a convert of remote music lessons! He communicates extremely well with younger kids, even though he has such extensive knowledge of music. My 10 year old son was super hesitant to start learning how to play the trumpet, but my son is all smiles throughout the entire lesson, and is self motivated to practice everyday! Caleb is an absolute gem.
Stan
I had played the trumpet in high school but had not played it since then for 40 years. I was wanting to get back into it to play some specific songs with some friends that play drums, guitars etc. Caleb was the perfect match to teach me the basics again, some music theory and then helping me learn and play the songs I wanted to play. He is so great to work with and will take you in any direction you want to go. And, he is so awesome playing the trumpet. He's amazing. He knows what he is talking about and can back it up. I highly recommend him to anyone at any level.
Jacob P.
Caleb is an excellent teacher! He was patient and encouraging with my teenage son who can sometimes get very discouraged when he finds his work challenging. I hope some of Caleb's positive attitude rubs off on him. The improvement in my son's trombone playing after one lesson was impressive..

Ben has been so committed and skilled in helping me work towards my singing goals. He's been helping me build a strong foundation of vocal technique with a detailed pedagogy that can feel like hard work at times, but that undoubtedly has delivered big results!
