Hello everyone!

My name is Donna Galvan. I am a Marriage and Family therapist and fluent in Spanish, semi-fluent in Japanese and I'm now studying Korean. Languages are my passion as well as music. I am operatically trained and I am also offering voice lessons for those who are interested in learning. I love helping people gain a better understanding of languages and whatever knowledge I can offer because I have been on the other side as well and understand that drive to learn. I am here to help maintain that drive and together we can explore Spanish and music!

Spanish · In studio

I took a tutoring lesson in spanish with Donna years ago, and she did such a good job of it that, although I’m only fluent in english, I use a few of the spanish terms she taught me on a regular basis, and remember them clearly after all this time. She had a way of explaning things that was more relatable and simple than any of my teachers.
Not only is she a very good tutor, but out of everyone I have met, no one has a higher standard of integrity, honesty, or focus. She’s probably the best person I know.
She also has the voice of an angel and has been taking her own voice lessons for as long as I’ve known her for, which is for about 12 years. She has vast knowledge of both popular and classical music in various languages.
I would recommend her as a tutor in spanish or for vocal lessons to anyone.
If you’re looking for a tutor, look no further. Pick her.
