Hello, I am Ms. Patino originally from Colombia, South America. Spanish is my mother tongue. All my life, I have been studied and practice this language. From an early age, I start to write plays, poems, articles, and essays. Read is one of my passions. I am a musician. I hold a BM in Music Education, Voice Performance, and Pedagogy from Universidad del Valle. Everyone can acquire a new language if approached correctly. It is the same about a musical instrument or singing. Be amazed, curiosity and fun are key ingredients to learn anything at any age in life. Whether it be to learn Spanish, voice, piano, guitar, or English, I will be happy to team up with you. I like to work one-on-one with my students creating a team and program that will lead each one of them to achieve their goals. Since each student is different I like to create and select the material for each student's needs. Sometimes I suggest some books but I try to keep my students from spending too much money. My Bio: Ms. Patino performed Salsa, Soft Rock, and Traditional Latin Music in the large concert venues, stadiums, and coliseums of South America. With the influence of her father, Guillermo Patiño-Valencia his international operatic and concert career, Ms. Patiño revealed her talent for the operatic stage singing in the Coloratura Soprano repertoire in roles as Gilda in Verdi’s Rigoletto and the title role in Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor. Ms. Patiño holds a BM and Artists degree in Vocal Performance and Music Education from the Universidad del Valle of Cali, Colombia – South America. Ms. Patino has been working for more than 20 years on Auditive-synchronization and neuro chronaxia technique that helps to sing in tune and with confidence. "If you can talk you can sing. I will show you how..." Ms. Patino

¡Excelente maestra! Te enseña a aprender y mejorar tu inglés de una forma muy dinámica, pedagógica y divertida. No solamente entiendes conceptos y gramática, sino también mejoras la pronunciación.
