About Tim (William)
My name is Tim and I live in Schertz, Texas. I hold a BM and a BME from UTSA and an MM from Texas State. I also studied drama for 3 years at Trinity University. I have been a music teacher for 29 years. I have taught elementary music, secondary choir and college level music courses. I have performed in operas, musicals and plays in San Antonio and I have sung at Carnegie Hall in New York. I studied voice with Herald Stark and guitar with David Underwood. I have led a professional singing group and a professional dance troupe. I have composed choral music which has been performed in San Antonio and entered into international competitions. I have spent years learning techniques to help students sing in tune and learn how to read music. I have experience teaching students of all ages from 3 year olds to adults. I teach students from Northe
ast San Antonio, Selma, Schertz, Live Oak, Universal City, Cibolo, Bracken, Garden Ridge, Converse, Marion, Seguin and New Braunfels.

*** Lesson Details ***
For my younger guitar students, I use the Progressive Guitar Method for Young Beginners series. This book includes a CD to help the student practice at home. For my older guitar students I use a progressive guitar curriculum of my own creation.

For my voice students I use Pathways of Song, Hall Johnson Spirituals, 24 Italian Songs and Arias, Alfred's Folk Songs for Solo Singers, Carl Fisher's The Young Singer series as well as song materials based upon the student's personal interests, such as art songs and Broadway show tunes.

For my piano students I use the Piano Adventures series by Nancy and Randall Faber and the Alfred Piano Series. Music reading, ear training and theory is part of my instruction. With daily practice you will see a noticeable improvement in musicianship, aural skills and music-reading ability.

I am also an experienced tutor. I have worked with students of all ages and with various learning differences. I have tutored students in reading, writing, math, social studies, ESL and test preparation.

Through online instruction, I am available around the clock and around the globe for tutoring and music lessons.

My 8-year-old has been taken the lessons from him since March of last year and it has been an amazing journey for her taking his lessons.
He is calm, patient and very talented.
I am so thankful that I found him through this website!

About Veronica
Teaching language is a passion, not only a profession. When you teach language you have to engage students in the culture, to spark motivation and broaden horizons, to promote diversity and tolerance.
My bachelors is in Psychology from my country of origin, but coming to this country I began working in language when looking for bilingual opportunities for my own children. Not being able to find the right person I decided to study so I could provide the best learning experience to my own children and that became my new career more than fifteen years now.
I have traveled through Latin America and gained cultural and academic knowledge. I have owned a language program for ten years and trained and supervised hundreds of language teachers and enjoyed thousands of young and old students' language accomplishments.
I have also had the hon
or and the privilege of teaching language to the military for almost eight years, developing curriculum for all levels and all ages.
Every student is a new opportunity to inspire and improve a life. I look forward to that every day.

Veronica is truly an excellent Spanish instructor. Although I have only had a few lessons with her, my speaking and listening comprehension skills have drastically improved. Also, after I expressed my interest in interpretation and translation, Veronica immediately tailored the lessons in a manner that would help me achieve my goals in these two areas. I highly recommend Veronica to anyone who wants to learn Spanish or who has already studied Spanish and wants to improve their skills. I am looking forward to many more classes with Veronica.

About Emilie
I was born and raised in Norway with a multicultural background. I moved to the US permanently in 2012 and have lived in a city I love beyond words ever since - NYC. I have two bachelor's degrees in Economics and Africana studies, and just finished my MBA with a specialization in Industrial and Organizational Psychology.

As I'm sure is obvious, I have experience with a lot of different subjects and have been a student for most of my lifetime. In my view, this makes me better equipped to teach people because I have an appreciation for the fact that we all process information in different ways. Learning has to be fun to be truly worth it, if you ask me! And having teachers who understand that makes all the difference. My academic progress has not just been the result of my own hard work, but but also the work of some great teachers alon
g the way.

I teach both online and in-person from my home, but I am also happy to meet up somewhere in Brooklyn or lower Manhattan. I may be available at a different time than what's shown on my calendar, so feel free to send me a message through the TakeLessons platform to see if we can find a time that works.

About Adriana
Hi! I speak Spanish fluently and love to teach. Spanish is my first language which is why I'm confident I can help you speak it too! I've been teaching kids, teenagers and adults for over a decade now. I enjoy teaching others new things and have plenty of patience to see my students accomplish their goals. I can adapt to each student according to their needs. In class, I like to keep things simple but I also enjoy getting a little creative with my teaching. Whether it is that you'd like to learn Spanish to order tacos at a taco stand, to speak to a loved one, for travel or a job. I can teach you all you need to know. See you in my next class!
