Gizelxanath R.

Pittsburgh, PA

About Gizelxanath

Gizelxanath was born in Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico. A naturally talented opera singer, she has extended her repertoire range to an almost all encompassing one which includes musical comedy, french popular songs, latin american boleros, jazz, sacred music, Afro-Peruvian-style pieces, Argentinean tango and Mexican folklore, in addition to the standard operatic repertoire. 
Her artistic qualifications include operatic studies and Masterclasses in highly prestigious universities such as: The Mozarteum Hochschule für Musik (Salzburg, Austria), The Ark Institute for the Performing Arts (San
Diego, California), The Conservatory of Music (Tijuana, México) and The University of Baja California. She has  been the recipient of many noteworthy awards including: The University of Fresno Zarzuela Scholarship, and The Metropolitan Opera Encouragement Auditions Award 2003.

The intrinsic beauty of her voice has been recognized and praised by many of today’s best opera singers, composers and musicians, including: Grace Bumbry, Francisco Araiza, Jaques d’Ambroise, Jerome Korman, Judith Lynn Stillman, Georgetta Psaros, John Bills, Pablo Zinger, Pancho Navarro and Enrique Gonzales Medina.

Among the many professional achievements throughout her musical career, it is worth to highlight her brilliant performance as Cherubino in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro (The Small Opera of San Diego, 2000), Lola, in Pietro Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana (2002 - 2003), Serafina, in Enrique Medina’s Serafina and Arcangela (Los Angeles Eutrepe’s Opera Company, 2003), Gretel in Hänsel und Gretel (New York at Lincoln Center National Dance institute 2010).

Her Recording catalog includes three solo albums: Cartas de Amor (1998), Passion Tango (2009), and Piensa en mi (2010), as well as many collaborations with world-renowned artists.
 
Today she thrives as one of the most versatile Mexican sopranos, performing regularly throughout the United States and internationally.

Annie B.

Pittsburgh, PA

I've been teaching English as a Second Language for 8 years. My goal is to build your confidence so that you can freely express yourself! In the first few lessons, we'll do some fun activities to expand vocabulary, then practice conversation skills. I include lessons about culture that include music, food, history, technology, politics, and anything else you might be interested in! I will suggest which materials (e.g. books, worksheets, podcasts, videos, etc.) you should use with our lessons. I have experience working with students from all over the world, but have specialized experience with native speakers of Spanish and Chinese.

About Annie

Hi, there! My name is Annie and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2007 and have loved helping my students feel more confident in their English ability by improving conversation skills, pronunciation, and vocabulary. I went to Penn State and earned a degree in Political Science in 2010. I'm a patient and responsible person and my teaching style is comprehensive, focused, and fun. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Sean C.

Pittsburgh, PA

I've been teaching ESL for 14 years. My students have gone on to both careers and graduate degrees. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to see real improvement in your communication skills, and as time goes on you'll excel in even difficult English environments. I specialize in reading/writing/grammar, but will help with your listening/speaking, too. I love working with students of all ages from a variety of levels, and I can't wait to meet you!

About Sean

I spent the last several years as a writing and language instructor for the ESL program at Gannon University. I developed the upper-level writing classes for the advanced ESL students. Over the past fifteen years I have taught both overseas and in the United States. Along the way I have acquired a vast array of diverse experiences which have enhanced my classroom skills. In addition to my experience as an instructor, I also bring the perspective of a published writer and professional editor to any course I teach. Much of this work has exposed me to a wide variety of approaches to students, tex
ts, and tests, giving me a better grasp of what works, and what does not. I know that each teaching opportunity will come with its own set of unique challenges, but it remains a welcome challenge.

Dean B.

Cranberry Township, PA

English as a Second Language…

With an M.S.Ed. in ESL Programming and a TESOL Certification from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, teaching English as a Second Language is my specialty. That means I have been specifically trained in determining the learner variables, teaching strategies and assessment methods specific to second language acquisition. Also, having earned a BA in Mandarin Chinese, I understand the challenges of learning a foreign language first hand.

In terms of experience, I’ve helped lead numerous English summer camps for high school students in Sichuan province, China, and completed a 60 hour practicum course in the ESL department of La Roche College (also in Pittsburgh). This was a great opportunity to work specifically with an ESL staff as well as with foreign students from around the world.

As your ESL tutor, the first thing I’ll do is conduct a needs analysis to determine what type of learner you are, whether it be audio-visual, kinesthetic (physical), ...
