Grammar and vocabulary fundamentals

About Gregory
I began to pursue a career as a vocalist at the age of 12. I studied for 6 years under a professional opera singer and landed a role in the chorus of 'Annie Get Your Gun' on Broadway starring Burnadette Peters and Tom Wopat.

I continued my studies at Wheaton College, MA, and graduated with a B.A. in Music. Throughout college, I directed and conducted vocal and instrumental groups of various genres, and also began teaching.

Since graduating in 2008, I've taught hundreds of students voice, guitar, piano, music theory, and audio engineering.

During the day, I am a Network Engineer and enjoy playing ice hockey!

*** Lesson Details ***
I first ask the student, as well as the parents, to agree on a set goal. Then, I develop a 'mini-curriculum' tailored to the student's strengths and weaknesses. I structure each lesson the same way
: theory fundamentals, exercises, and performance practice. Within each lesson, I incorporate visuals, games, and other media. Live performances are also highly encouraged.

My student's would say that my lessons are motivational and packed with energy. I always follow up with parents to discuss progress, and the student's mandatory log book helps to keep everyone informed of what is expected each week.

*** Instruments/Equipment ***
I provide only equipment that I will personally use for the lesson (books, audio, and instrument). I do not provide instruments, electronic equipment (i.e. amps, cords, keyboards, speakers, computer, etc), books, or sheet music. I expect my students to have or purchase all the materials they will need.

*** Specialties ***
I also offer ear training, songwriting, vocal arranging and music production workshops for artists interested in pursuing a career in the music industry.

Consuelo is such a great teacher! I was so nervous to start taking Spanish lessons because I am extremely shy and haven't been doing so well in my Spanish class. She was very attentive to my needs and quickly tailored her lessons to help me improve my biggest weaknesses. With her help I raised my overall class grade from a C to an A within a month and a half. She is a Spanish language miracle worker! GRACIAS CONSUELO!!!

Spanish will one day be the number one spoken language in US. It is also a language spoken throughout North and South America, and Europe.

About claire
Greeting!

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
for 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.

Want to learn a language aside from grammar and rules? I enjoy providing resources and help to help students learn using their own style of learning. I like providing interacting gaming activities, creative lessons, speech & pronunciation tips, and creating a multicultural environment where people can learn while having fun. I have been teaching K-12 for the past 4 years using a hands-on and multicultural methodology. I do not only teach a language but a culture in itself. Mastering and proficiency is my focus while learning through experience and using language in the real world.

About Jose
I am Jose, graduated as an undergrad at Towson University and currently enrolled at University of Maryland. My career is focus on Spanish Literature and Latin American Studies. While majoring on those careers, I participated on a work study group as a tutor in Spanish Linguistics, Culture, and History. I am originally from Peru and have been a volunteer teaching, assisting, and leading educational plans in Mexico and Peru. I enjoy teaching because it connects different people who share similarities and differences culturally and willing to learn about one another.
My experience comes from teaching abroad in both rural areas and cities in Latin America. Currently working at Wolfe Street Academy as the Spanish program coordinator which serves students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds. I enjoy merging methodologies and differentiating to
help students overcome their learning difficulties. Hence, strengthening their learning weaknesses and polishing their learnings’ strengths.
While studying Spanish, I learn that teaching a language is not solely about grammar but rather the culture and structure behind it. Grammar nonetheless is part of the language and a co-requirement to excel academically. My qualifications comes from my multicultural methodology where I teach and provide students resources to self-learn and structure their metacognitive abilities. Merging both culture and language provides opportunities to research, creative write, independent study themes and topics related to the language of Spanish. My interdisciplinary vision provides students the ability to learn grammar not as a base but a tool to comprehend, critical think, and synthesize own their own perceptions and opinions about its culture.
Being a teacher means that one once was a student. The value of learning different things and paying attention to details while having fun in discovering and researching has make craft my abilities to teach the particular subjects describe previously. I will end by quoting Nelson Mandela "Education is the most powerful weapon in the world to entice change" I look forward working with everyone.

Born into a Latino family, Spanish is my native language and I would be happy to train all people into the basic vocabulary and detail grammatical structure of Español.

About Javier
I am a choir director for my local church and have been since I was 19. I started playing piano when I was 6, but I never really got into it until several years later. My parents pushed me to play piano my whole life. It took a lot of practice and encouragement, but little by little, and with the help of some amazing teachers, I have become a very talented piano player.

I graduated from The Catholic University of America with a Bachelors in Architecture, and a Minor in Theology (what does that have to do with music right?). I constantly motivate myself to teach piano and learn as much as I can which places me in strong position of talent, while my degree is not in Music, I challenge anyone to perform with as much passion as I have for music.

A few years ago, my choir was awarded a silver medal in a competition among choirs in the area.
My talent and natural leadership skills were lauded by the audience and the judges. Since then, I have only improved in my skills and wish to give those skills to others.

As a well-experienced student and instructor, I have acquired several (nearly 50) piano books that I use to constantly refresh my skill set. I am happy to use and donate any book for prospective students, so that they may follow my footsteps into true piano playing.

Everyday, I listen to a different song and work hard to learn it on the piano and develop chords, melodies, or just various forms of accompaniment .

I also enjoy singing as much as possible, to keep my voice as well-maintained as my piano. When I sing and play together, it is an entirely different atmosphere that I create and know any student is capable achieving that as well.

I am happy that my family kept pushing me to play because I learned to maintain a positive attitude. Now I play with so much passion and fun, which very few teachers can do.
