Hola!
I'm a native speaker with a degree in Spanish Literature and over 20 years of teaching and tutoring experience. I have a more, "real life/conversational" teaching. Classes will be tailored to your skill level and ability.

About Teresita

ART: I love making art accessible to everyone. I am passionate about helping people get in touch with the artist that lives within them. Many people think they're "not good at art" but my philosophy is that you can be good at art as long as it makes you feel something. If you enjoy it, that's good

Terri has been a great teacher with my children. She elicits cooperation without being authoritarian. My kids are always asking when class is and are super excited when she rings our doorbell. I can't imagine a better endorsement

Having a great time learning watercolor from Teresita! She's very clear with her instructions and super patient with me. She incorporates art theory into every class combined with an enjoyable exercise/piece.

I am a native Spanish educator from Valencia, Spain. I specialize in teaching private and small group classes at all levels and for all needs (professional, just for traveling...etc)

I've been teaching in Spain Spanish as a second language to international students for 5 years in Middle and High School and this last 5 years teaching Spanish as a second language to professionals here in the States in private academies and individually.

My methodology has been very successful (methodology from the Instituto Cervantes and materials from different universities in Spain, Colombia, Argentina, Mexico...etc), and my current students enjoy learning from the comfort of their offices and homes.

We will do an initial assessment, and according to your Spanish level, I will create for you a personalized curriculum taking in order your personal language needs and preference in methodology. All my lessons are tailored to the needs of my students. We will study the Spanish used in different ...

Karen
James is an amazing teacher! My son has taken piano lessons from him for several years. James not only taught lessons and theory, he helped my son prepare “Prelude in C Major” by Bach for a school talent show. They also worked on Erik Satie’s “Gymnopedie”. One year, James helped him prepare a song to sing at a talent show and even came to the show and accompanied him on piano. My son has written songs that James has helped him refine. When my son showed up with a ukulele, James was able to teach him how to play it as well. We love James!
