*** Lesson Details ***
As a voice teacher, I believe that my job is to allow the students to discover their own unique characteristics. I like to teach in an relaxed environment where the student will be able to develop a healthy (learning bad techniques can be harmful to the throat and body) strong techniques. It is important for the students to learn their own bodies and limit, while being taught to use their bodies to help produce beautiful singing.

Singing is more than just about using their voice and achieving proper technique.. It is equally important to learn the music history, theory, acting, etc. appropriate to the piece they are working on. When everything comes together with proper singing and the correct knowledge, students will be able to perform a piece in an intelligent manner.

Finally, something I have learned from my previous teachers, it is important to go beyond being just a teacher, and become a role-model and a mentor to my students.

Bo is truly a great instructor!

As basically a beginner with piano, she deployed a perfect blend of patience and push. She makes lessons fun, works with you, but also pushes you to get better.

Bo is also very accommodating to your schedule and is great a working with you to make sure you get your lesson in.

About Hilda
I am a native Spanish speaker, who also speaks Portuguese, and French. I have taught and tutored Spanish students from beginner-advance levels, both private and in groups for several years and taught Spanish full time at a school from grades 5-12 for a year. I currently teach art and Spanish at school for grades 1-7. I recently started teaching beginner ESL for Spanish speakers. I also teach art, drawing and painting for adults and older teens. I love teaching and intend to make it enjoyable and fun. I always encourage students to become independent and self reliant in all the subjects I teach. I care about each student and base my classes on their personal preferences, needs and circumstances.

Hilda is very fun and engaging. She immediately talked with me about my interests. She quickly learned my ability in Spanish and started teaching from there. And she is very knowledgeable about grammar and the nuances of Spanish. EXACTLY what I was looking for! I recommend her very highly!!!

Hilda has me learning the finer points first: pronunciation and the alphabet. It's certainly tricky for a 39 year old brain to learn a completely new language but Hilda makes it fun and I am really enjoying our lessons.

About Dianne
Hello, I am a certified teacher and also an engineer. My main goal as an educator is to help students realize their true potential. Beyond helping my students complete homework or learn a new skill I provide them with tools for success. I teach my students so they can take charge of their learning.

I hold a Masters Degree in Education with an emphasis in Bilingual/Bicultural Education. Prior to earning my masters degree, I was a bilingual educator for six years. In addition, I have conducted research in language acquisition and math and have been trained using research based learning strategies. I also hold a Bachelors Degree in Mechanical Engineering and worked six years in this field.

I work with students all ages. I am available for homework, homeschooling, and enrichment activities. Before meeting with my students, I gather the ne
cessary information in order to create a lesson plan that will meet the student's specific needs. I have extensive experience in curriculum design. My approach to teaching is student-centered. I use a variety of methods to ensure that students are active participants in the learning process and get the most out of instruction.

I have worked with students with special needs including, learning disabled, ADHD and gifted and talented. When planning my lessons, I make sure that the activities included are appropriate for the student and use students feedback in future planning.

About LAura
Are you learning spanish so you can travel the world to spanish speaking countries? Does someone close to you speak spanish and you want to be able to communicate with them? Whatever your reason, you can do it! I take a very immersion based approach. I think the more you hear and practice- the more naturally it will come to you. I am a very easy going person who just wants to help you learn! I learned the majority of my spanish sitting around a table of spanish speaking adults, trying to understand each of the different conversations going on all around me. Of course you need to know the basics first but I will get you there!

On my free time I travel to spanish speaking countries. I love to get to know people of different cultures whom I can actually communicate with. Its an amazing feeling. Let's get you to that point! I look forward
to helping you!
