I know it's too early to write a review after the first lesson. However, I was surprised by the wonderful way Sergio handled the time and the introduction for such a hard instrument like the alto sax.
My son Moneer is so excited to continue learning how to play alto sax with Sergio. In short Sergio is a very talented music instructor!

About Christelle
Bienvenido/a a mi perfil. Me llamo Christelle y soy profesora. ¡Encantada!

I was born in Argentina and spent the first half of my life there and then moved to Spain, where I lived until 2016 when I moved to Chicago area.

While I was still getting my Bachelor's Degree in English Philology in Barcelona, I started working in language schools teaching English to all ages.
I worked as an EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teacher for almost 7 years. I have experience with children as young as 1 y/o, one-to-one lessons, small and large groups.

I am currently working as a Spanish and Art teacher in a private school in Oak Brook, Fusion Academy. I work with high schoolers who struggle learning in conventional learning environments.
I also have a Spanish Teacher certification from International House Barcelona and I am an official DELE
(Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language) examiner certified by Instituto Cervantes.

Look for me in LinkedIn for more information about me and check my art portfolio Red Summers Tea at Carbonmade dot com.

ABOUT MY PRIVATE LESSONS

I can help you improve your current level of Spanish, help your children with Spanish at school, or teach you Spanish from scratch!

⋆ LOCATIONS
I live in Bloomingdale and work in the DuPage county area. I meet most of my students in local coffee shops like Starbucks or Panera, but at-home lessons are possible as well.

⋆ LESSON FREQUENCY AND LENGTH

It would depend on your goals. School tutoring usually requires less time because Spanish at school is extremely basic and it’s doesn’t really lead to fluency in the language. Anything else needs a greater degree of commitment! I meet my students for one hour once or twice per week AT LEAST.

⋆ TEACHING METHOD
For school tutoring I try to adapt to your school’s method. For other types of lessons, I prefer avoiding translation and memorization and make use of effective Spanish textbooks, technology, games and free conversation.

⋆ SCHEDULE / AVAILABILITY
I mostly teach Monday-Friday afternoons and weekends in the morning.

⋆ RESCHEDULING / CANCELLATIONS / PUNCTUALITY
I understand flexibility is convenient and appreciated, so I allow rescheduling and cancellations in case of emergency or with enough advance notice. I recommend students to stick to their agreed schedule if they want to achieve their goals, even if that means to meet at another time during that same week. If I am already on my way to your lesson and you need to cancel, I will charge for the lesson. If you’re going to be late, please let me know, and I can’t guarantee that I can stay later than our scheduled time.

⋆ FIRST LESSON
During our first lesson we will take time to go over any important information, set our goals and answer questions regarding nature of our lessons. We can talk about fees and teaching materials during this lesson as well.

For any more details or any questions, please don’t hesitate contacting me!

We found Christelle on this website and could not be more thrilled. She was able to meet all of our requirements in an art tutor, speaking perfect Spanish to my daughter and always energetic during the lessons. My daughter cannot wait for the next lesson to come every week!

Ms. Angela has been teaching my children for three years, and because of her, my kids have loved learning a foreign language, and have improved in speaking and writing impressively. She is a perfect blend of discipline and kindness, and her teaching techniques are tailored to students of all ages and levels of proficiency.

About Ralph
My teaching philosophy is an adaptation developed from years of being a student, working in the field, and from experience as an instructor. I hope to provide an environment where students can progress from one task to the next with a positive result. I want my students to be able to accomplish their goals and expectations for each class. Students should retain what was taught, understand, and embrace-based on their classroom encounter with me as their instructor.

About Nancy
Years ago, when my boys went off to kindergarten, I was shocked to learn that art was no longer part of the day, let alone the curriculum. I designed a program for each grade level and taught parent volunteers how to teach art to become docents. Each week every student had a chance to tap into their creativity and find a creative side that has stayed with them to this day. Art defines every part of us!!

About Joseph
I am a commercial and wedding photographer based out of the Philadelphia area. I am a 2006 graduate of the Antonelli Institute of Art and Photography. I have received multiple awards for my work in the commercial, sports and wedding fields. My images have graced the covers of international publications like Sports Illustared and The Blood Horse. As a commercial photographer I have shot for companies such as: Brother, Lenox, Blanco, Hilton and Sotheby’s to name a few.

My career has mainly been centered around the commercial word, meaning, I shoot mostly for companies. My average work week can include shooting anything from products, like printers, bedding or fine china, to capturing an image of a CEO or Board of directors! On the weekends you will often find me hanging out with a bridal party shooting award winning wedding images!

My s
tudents will enjoy my energy, fun loving nature and ability to break down complicated subject matter into simplistic ideas. I will tailor our classes to your specific skill level as well as to what your photography goals are long term.
