Elisa is a great violin teacher for my 8 year old daughter. She is clear with her expectations and sets attainable challenges while making lessons enjoyable. My daughter has learned faster than I expected and looks forward to every lesson. I highly recommend her for teaching young children.

Hola!

Me llamo Aerin. I have been educating myself on the Spanish language for over a decade and I would be thrilled to share my knowledge with you in the form of beginner/intermediate lessons. My lesson plan would incorporate practice with reading and writing skills, focusing on pronunciation and comprehension, as well as vocabulary and grammar. If you are studying in an academic setting, we can incorporate any relevant subjects that you are in need of reviewing. I have found much success in working with students whom are currently enrolled in Spanish language courses but just need that extra boost.

My lessons are $15 per half hour or $25 dollars for a full hour. These are the best prices for a one- on -one tutor, plus, I'll come to you! I like to meet up with all my students for an introductory lesson where I can assess your goals and see how you learn best. If you feel as though I am a good fit for you, we can put together a lesson plan and get rolling!

¡Hasta pronto!

I am a native English speaker, and my graduate degrees in musicology are extremely reading and writing intensive. As a result, I have an advanced knowledge of the English language. If you want to learn English as a second language, I would love to help! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences, and as time goes on, you'll start learning the inner workings of the English language. I tailor my teaching to the individual needs and goals of each student so that my lessons can be fun and enjoyable and informative.

About Nicole

I am a professional musician who has been performing and studying for over 10 years. I received my BM in Vocal Performance and Spanish from St. Norbert College in 2014 and my MM in Musicology from Florida State University in 2016. I am currently working on my PhD in Musicology where I am focusing m

Sarah G.
Nicole was a wonderful teacher for my daughter. She's excellent at assessing my daughter's abilities and adjusting each individual lesson accordingly. She goes out of her way to learn about my daughter's interests to make the lessons even more enjoyable. Highly recommend!
Kate
Nicole is amazing. She really helps people find their voice and provides a comfortable space in which to musically grow. She demonstrates her own expertise as a vocalist through her teaching and technical approach. She is also able to work within a variety of musical styles and languages and provides effective and constructive feedback in which to further develop.

I have been teaching professionally for 10 years. Most of them abroad, in Ireland and Turkey and always at the Instituto Cervantes and in several universities, last year in Barcelona, at Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona. I do love to teach Spanish to groups but specially private lessons as they give me the option to build an specific curriculum for that student, work on the needs and what he really wants to learn. My lessons are very dynamic and also fun, we work all the aspects and also the culture from Spain if you're interested. I have a long experience teaching students from all over the world, with different ages and levels.

5 Proven Memorization Tactics That Will Help You Learn Italian Vocabulary

When learning a foreign language, memorizing vocabulary is one of the most important steps.

In fact, many claim that a vocabulary of at least 3,000 words is necessary to obtain fluency in a foreign language. If you're having a hard time getting your Italian vocabulary list to stick - don't give up, as there are many tactics to help you memorize words mor …
