I am a native Spanish speaker from the Dominican Republic with an ELE (Spanish as a foreign language) teaching certificate and a bachelor of music education. I believe in a student centered approach to education and develop lessons based on the student's needs and goals. I will work with you so you can be exposed to the language and learn how to interact with it. Learning to communicate is key and I will encourage the student to speak as soon as possible rather than focus on grammar exercises.

About Cesar P.

I'm an experienced and patient teacher with 4+ years of experience as a public school music teacher. I have a bachelor's degree in music education & vocal music performance as well as an ELE (Spanish as a foreign language) teaching certificate.

I'm a native Spanish speaker from the Dominican Republic who started learning English as a child and is currently learning French. Because of this, I understand the difficulties that learners can encounter when learning a foreign language and can help students maximize their efforts by focusing on the right things.

As a music teacher, I've taught vocal music K-12 and privately, have prepared students for All-State Choir, and have successfully prepared my students for concerts representing styles such as classical,  musical theater, pop, folk, and world music. 

As a performer, I have sung mostly with choirs as a baritone and have experience singing in concert choirs, church choir. and smaller chamber ensembles (12-24 singers). I also successfully presented junior and senior voice recitals during college and participated in other recitals throughout my college career. 

I love working with students and helping them improve. Your success is my priority. I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your goals!
