I teach up to College level English, assist with Term papers, Essays, reports and research papers. Also for my non-native speakers I assist them in learning phonetics and grammar.

About Rosita
I have been singing and studying voice for over 23 years since I was a child! I hold a Bachelors from Musicians Institute and other accomplished degrees from American Musical Dramatic Academy to conclude my quest for vocal excellence and the ability to sing in multiple languages ( English, Spanish, Japanese and Italian) I have been lucky enough to study with some of the top teachers in the country and now I bring the experience I have gained directly to you!

I am proud to share my student's vast array of musical successes. From being cast on short anime films and musicals to being accepted into prestigious performing arts academies to conquering the Karaoke scene. My passion for multiple languages and love of music is the desire driving me to share the gifts for teaching young children to open the door to their own musical abilities an
d hidden artistic desires. I am currently writing a musical which will be debuting in 2020. I'm currently the vocal coach/Trainer and choir director at Iglesia Elim Central.

I will make sure my students have fun and help them get in the right track to their musical goals.

Also, I constantly upload videos on Singing, The Spanish Language, and Japanese! So keep Checking in! It ranges on tips and answering the most common questions on those particular subjects!

Also There are discounted rates for worship teams and church choirs. For more information please contact me through the "Ask a Question feature"

*** Lesson Details ***
I do my absolute best to create a positive atmosphere for my students. Even when the students feel frustrated or stressed, it is important to inspire them and give them the fuel that they need. Though I am strict when it comes to homework and their about their studies. Every lesson at the beginning I will review what we learned previously and test them.
then begin with proper breathing technique exercises, the cornerstone of all vocals. We move on to vocal exercises to condition the voice. Then we work on the songs that you are eager to sing!

I will use a piano when doing vocal warm ups and conditioning exercises. Students that play other instruments and accompany themselves when performing (such as a guitar) are encouraged to bring that instrument to their lessons. My goal is for them to gain the knowledge that they need to help reach their artistic goals.
With all my lessons every student will be taught a basic run down of Music Theory. My students will always progress in what they do. They will have the discipline that they need and yet have fun and be filled with inspiration. Which is the most important thing, to be Inspired to do better.

*** Studio Equipment ***
iMac, condensing mic...performing mic, keyboard, mixer...living room of apartment.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I do have a portable keyboard. Though I do expect the student to have their own recording device and karaoke tracks. At Home I do have a studio, and if the students has an iPod or an Mp3 player I can attach it to a device where all of us can hear the tracks. I do have a recording studio as well.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Musical Theatre, and Pop rock genres. When I teach my students I always have them learn a song of another language whether it's Spanish or Japanese. It helps with diction when they learn a song outside the English Language. Also, It helps them to learn another Language at the same time. Also, I give them a little anatomy class when they are learning how to sing. I give them a model of the Vocal Cords and different areas of the Larynx and which part works for the chest voice and the head voice.

I would absolutely recommend Rosita because I think she has the bestSpanish course for medical Spanish. It’s everything that you need without having to go through a bunch of unrelated Spanish vocabulary. I don’t really need to know how to order a meal, I want to find out how I can help my patient. I need to be able to communicate with my patients and understand what they’re saying back. It’s nice to have something so perfect for our profession. And I think that it’s also nice because it’s an interactive lesson. The training course is pretty easily accessible and you can go back and look up lessons and refresh what you need to look at.

About Daniel M.

I've been teaching English for 7 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of the American culture, study abroad, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro!

About Daniel
I love teaching, I can teach you at where you at and take you where you need to be. I only need a student with the desire to learn and to practice.

I like to help students realize they have the intelligence and ability to solve the problems on their own, they just need the right direction. Nothing is too difficult once we understand how to do it!

I hired Bruno to help me comprehend my book for class. He showed up and genuinely cared that I was getting it. He showed me a note taking idea that to me seemed that if I just wrote a couple of ideas down I’d go back and know where I was as far as going back and studying. He asked if I needed to write this point down and basically showed how to do the job. Great work.

Mr. Barbosa is a very outgoing person who always checks in on his students before we begin the lesson. At the
beginning of the lesson, we start with warm-ups so our voice is
ready to sing high or low notes. When you first start with Mr. Bar-
bosa, he will have you sing multiple songs and scales so he can
learn your vocal range. Mr. Barbosa makes sure that you understand
the content and if you don't, he is helpful and explains it in a way we
can comprehend. Lessons are a great way to improve your singing.
I’m becoming more comfortable performing in front of my peers.

About Teri
Bonjour all! I've been an educator most of my career. I lived in France for many years and loved every moment!

Brooklyn, NY

English Lessons with me are unique because similar to many students, at one point 20+ years ago, I also did not speak English and I had to learn. With my background, I have an approach to teaching English that works because the skills that I use to teach are also the skills that I used to learn. I also have a passion for teaching. I love integrating my passion for teaching with passion for learning the English language.

About Christelle
I have been teaching English since 2016 at a local Elementary School and also to adults at a community center. Similar to many students, I also did not know how to speak English 20+ years ago.

My approach to teaching English is teaching all the skills that I used when I was learning how to speak English to my students to help them learn at a comfortable pace.

In addition, not only do I move at a student's speed/level but very often I collaborate with my students on creating lesson plans based on what they want to learn and/or what they would like to improve on.

On my free time, I volunteer with a Foster Care agency and I also mentor. Lastly, In addition to English, I also speak Haitian-Creole.

I've had many English teachers but I must say Christelle is the most patient, relaxed, good tempered, helpful, encouraging, respectful, and kind teacher there is. Christelle creates a comfortable and warm environment where you are able to learn at your pace. Christelle also had to learn the English language and it's comforting knowing that Christelle also struggled. Christelle has taught me great skills I will continue to utilize in my everyday life.

I know that a teacher is important, since I have studied other languages myself and I like the interaction, but at the end of the day it is the student who takes control of his or her own learning, and they are the ones who make language learning happen.

I see myself as a guide to show the way. I like to help students recognize their own abilities and potential.

About lily
Hi there, welcome to my profile! :)

My name is Lilian and I'm from USA and I live in Los Angeles. .I'm an English teacher both in public school and online for over 5 years . I have a Bachelors degree in education and I'm TESOL certified.

I learned Persian on my own and I understand that it can be challenging to learn a foreign language, therefore I ensure that my lessons are fun, engaging and meaningful.
Learning a foreign language gives you the opportunity to experience new cultures and to grow as an individual. I would like to help you out in your journey of learning English .
Students find my classes are fun, interactive and I make learning English easy.

During the trial lesson, we’ll find out a little about each other. We’ll talk about your needs and interests in any special vocabulary, reading and writing skills, and speaking and
listening proficiency. I will ask you to estimate your level of proficiency now, and what level you want to achieve in the next three months.

Don't hesitate to contact me and lets start learning .
