About Enrique
I truly enjoy teaching and have many years of experience teaching students of all levels and ages.

I try to teach my students how important it is to listen to themselves play. When appropriate, I bring a guitar or bass (depending on the student's need) and help the student learn how drums relate to the rest of the music. I want all of my students to enjoy playing and to have music as a tool for life: one that helps them express themselves, think creatively, learn specific and technical skills, and grow musically. I believe all people can benefit from learning to play an instrument. If you or your child believe that music can provide a new way to find meaning and joy in life while learning a valuable skill, please contact me.

In addition, I have successfully taught many students who have had trouble in school due to lack of motivati
on and/or learning disabilities. Drum/percussion lessons have reawakened these discouraged students' desire to learn and I am happy to adjust my teaching style for any disabilities or difficulties a student may have. I am happy to provide references from parents whose children were struggling in other areas of life and who looked forward to a music lesson when all else seemed to be a chore.

More information: My recent recordings include top-selling Mexican pop artist Yuridia's newest album, Entre Mariposas, produced by his longtime collaborator Javier Calderon, and I have shared credits with Kenny Aronoff and James East.

Winner , San Diego Music Awards with the band Skelpin.

Percussionist of Manolito Gypsy (Gypsy Kings).

*** Lesson Details ***
Classes are 30, 45 or 60 minutes, depending on age and ability. I give lessons at your home or in my home studio.

I will start by talking to the student and/or parent about what the student would like to accomplish from the lessons and what, if any, musical background the student already has. It's OK if you don't have any experience at all.

The first class is when I focus on understanding how the student learns. Everyone learns differently and is motivated differently, so I make it a point to get to know what makes the student tick. During the first lesson, we will do some basic exercises so I can pinpoint where they are, and I'll assign skills to practice for the next class.

If the class is taught at my home studio, I record it for the student to refer to during the week. I assign exercises for every class, so please plan to practice at least 15 minutes per day while you are taking lessons.

Finally, I offer a recording opportunity for students who are writing songs and would like to learn recording skills. This is an option for advanced students, students who are looking to record a demo, or for young students who would like to preserve their new accomplishments on an audio file that can be given as a gift.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Roland TD-6 and Yamaha stage custom and acoustic drums. Full in-home studio. Machudo Cajons (Drum Box) Yamaha acoustic set, Sonar recording software,Box) Yamaha acoustic set, Sonar rec software,

*** Travel Equipment ***
Will bring appropriate lesson materials to your home and we will work together to get the right practice materials for you within your budget.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching Latin percussion instruments including the drum set, cajon (DrumBox), bongos, dumbek and congas.

I focus on conjugation, grammar, composition, vocabulary, and oral skills.

About Vertel
It took the love of another language to help me appreciate my own, and later, to appreciate the beauty of learning. As an educator, I care about more than just a passing grade; my goal is to see you succeed beyond your wildest expectations!

MORE ABOUT ME
I earned a Master's degree in Spanish from the University of North Texas, where I gained substantial experience as a graduate teaching fellow and teaching assistant.

I can teach basic Spanish to anyone who wants to learn the language. We would focus mostly on vocabulary, pronunciation, and grammar, working to understand and learn through not just reading and writing but speaking as well since that is one of the most important parts of learning a language. I am flexible though, and we can shape lessons around your goals.

About Amber
I've been in Rockwall ISD's orchestra program for seven years and have studied for two and a half of those years with a retired cello professor.I have some experience teaching with my younger brother and my cousin, but have not yet given lessons to others although I am excited to do so. As a student myself, I can help beginner and intermediate cello students advance to a higher level of playing. I will focus a lot on basic form, posture, and balance as I see many young cellists struggle with these things, and then when their playing is at a level where I can no longer do much besides practice with them, I will recommend another teacher who can help them develop further. If you are looking for someone who will sit and practice with the student and help them learn music, although it would not do much to help them, I am happy to do that as w
ell.
Recently I also have added Spanish as one of my subjects. I took Spanish classes at Rockwall High School and went up through Spanish 4 at the International Baccalaureate level, earning a 6 on the final IB exam. Spanish is a useful and interesting language to have, especially here in Texas.
I look forward to teaching you/ your student :)

I love the beauty of the Spanish language and have enjoyed being a student of the language myself. I practice daily in conversation, in song, and/or via text every day in order to continue improving. As opposed to solely memorizing facts, I can help beginning students learn to effectively communicate in Spanish in a practical way.

From my lessons a student should expect clarity and coherent discussions of complex ideas within the language. Ample numbers of practice examples fortified with real world application and efficient study methods will form a well rounded learning enviornment and greatly increase the student's learning.

Hi, I'm a comp sci major studying computer science at UTD. Ever since I was young I had an interest in language and linguistics, and this passion led me to learning Spanish fluently in school as a non-native. Im confident that i will be able to break down any hard concepts and review pitfalls to avoid, so those who i help will be confident in their spanish/computer science abilities. Thanks!

Language learning must be personalized! What are your interests; sports, art, politics, animals, the environment? I will find out what you like and tailor lessons with music, shows, articles, games and conversation that apply to YOUR interests. More intrinsic motivation will help you learn.
I have 6 years experience teaching Spanish levels 1- Honors IV at the high school level, am a trained medical interpreter and taught English for 1 year in Granada, Spain, in addition to living in Germany.
Additionally, I have a BA in Spanish Language and Literature from the University of Maryland at College Park and have studied at the graduate level at American University.

About Ashleigh
I'm a full-time Spanish teacher at a private high school in Washington, DC where I have taught levels 1-IV for the last 4 years. Prior to that, I lived in Germany as a military spouse where I taught yoga. Before Germany, I taught Spanish for two years at a private boarding school in Raleigh, North Carolina. My first teaching position, however, was in Granada, Spain where I taught English at a rural school near Granada, Spain having won a fellowship after university graduation.
Although my bachelors is in Spanish Language and Literature I am studying TESOL at American University where I have completed 12 credits in language assessment, second language acquisition and linguistics. My classes are engaging and personalized. For my athlete students, I find articles and clips about their sport that we build language around. I do the same f
or the interests of my other students, thereby making their connection to the language personal and intrinsic. In our tutoring sessions, there will be music, video and games! Because I am a teacher, I can help you liaise with your student's teacher in a way that will help us understand how to help your student.
Besides Spanish, I really enjoy teaching yoga and you can find a description of my classes in my yoga profile or check out my blog centeryourselfyoga on wordpress.com

With international experience living, working and studying in Spain, I gained vital Spanish language knowledge that cannot be taught in most classrooms. I graduated cum laude with two Bachelor's degrees in Spanish Language and Public Relations from Texas Tech University (Wreck em'!). My Spanish degree involved grammar, history and business studies. I have experience teaching/tutoring spanish and english in a college preparation program as well as internationally. I have also working in the healthcare industry as a bilingual healthcare specialist. My passion is to help students become bilingual in this competitive and diverse society!

About Motola
Hello! My name is Motola and I graduated cum laude with two Bachelors degrees in Spanish Language and Public Relations from Texas Tech University! My Spanish degree involved grammar, history and business studies. During my time at TTU, I lived, worked and studied in Spain gaining international experience in the Spanish language. There, is where I cultivated a deep love and passion for this language.

While living in Granada, Spain, I worked at a bilingual children's school as an assistant teacher. We conducted the class with both Spanish and some English lessons. During my time at TTU I worked with Upward Bound, a program for first generation high school students (those whose parents do not have a college education), as a mentor and Spanish/english tutor. I was one of the Spanish teachers for the Upward Bound summer program and tutored st
udents throughout the year. In this program, I also conducted bilingual presentations to native Spanish speakers and translated documents.

In this diverse and changing society, it is imperative that students learn a different language; and in Texas, it is even more important that students learn Spanish. That being said, my goal for each student is that they would not just be able to pass their Spanish 2 vocabulary quiz or get a 4 on the Spanish AP Test, but that they would become bilingual and have a competitive edge in our diverse society.

I believe that to learn a language, one must be immersed (in some way) in that language. That is why I will use avenues such as songs, books, articles, movies, etc. to help students grasp the depth of the Spanish Language. This also makes something that is seen as difficult into something exciting and fun! When choosing me as your tutor, you will not only get better grades, but will gain a knowledge that is priceless!
