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!

I signed up for Farangis's Farsi classes after I began to work as a Nurse at a Los Angeles Nursing Home, where Farsi is the first language of most of the patients as well as some of the doctors and nurses.
Even though it's only two months since I signed up for Farangis's Farsi classes, I can enthusiastically say that I can now communicate with the patients and medical staff in Farsi. I definitely recommend Farangis.

Adan seemed to know just where we needed to start based on my lack of formal Spanish education. He also knew to stretch me just enough to make it challenging while building my confidence. I like that he forces the repetition and recall - forcing my brain to put the right words together.

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.
