About Brenda
Hello, my name is Brenda! It is nice to meet you.

I have been teaching private lessons for over a decade, and have my B.M. in Music Education from William Paterson University. I was a voice major and flute/piano double minor, and I just completed my Masters of Music in Performance with the Opera Institute at Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University.

Although I do work with students of all ages, I specialize in working with younger children and retired adults!

I primarily teach voice, flute, piano, music theory and history and have over 10 years of experience teaching in both individual and group settings. I also work on audition and performance preparation, do speech/accent work and more. I am constantly studying different teaching methods so I can develop a custom program that best fits your learning styles and inco
rporates what you already know, with what you will need to learn in order to achieve your goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether you want to play flute, clarinet, sing, act, or learn to play piano, I am here to help you become the best musician you can be. Classically trained, I also work with the styles of musical theatre, pop, rock, and jazz. I can teach you the proper techniques, posture, and breathing necessary to perform to the best of your ability and teach you how to utilize your full lung capacity to extend phrasing length and dynamic range. I will also help you learn to read and write music. Together, we will keep a log to track your progress lesson to lesson. This will also help you keep a record of the steps you are taking to obtain and achieve your goals and dreams.

*** Specialties ***
Young and beginner students.
Senior & Retired students
Students with special needs.
Performance techniques.
Audition preparation
Speech techniques (public speaking/voice-overs, etc.)
Bel Canto technique.

Life coaching!

I've been teaching English for 13 years and my students have gone on to develop travel abroad, participate in and win different competitions and contests, and build their careers. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to communicate in it in everyday life and as time goes on you'll be able to make new friends and study and work in it. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Aliaksandra
Hi, there! My name is Aliaksandra and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2001 and have loved helping my students communicate in the language they want, make new foreign friends, and travel and study abroad. I went to Minsk State Linguistic University (Republic of Belarus) and earned a Master degree in Philological Sciences in 2003. I'm a responsible person always ready to help and my teaching style is students’ needs oriented, cooperative, and activity-approached. My motto is Practice makes perfect. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

My daughter Kira, who is 10 now, has been taking French lessons for almost two years with Alessandra. I can’t be happier with her progress! And I certainly can’t be happier with Aleksandra, who is not only a professor and can teach adults and teachers, but also has an amazing way with children!
My daughter loves her and always is looking forward to the next class, responsiby does her homework and able to teach me a few things :)
But what I truly appreciate as a parent as well, is that she is never late and always makes the day and time that has been arranged, which is very important with everyone’s busy schedules.
I would highly recommend Aleksandra for teaching children and adults!
My best friend is French, and I had Aleksandra over when my friend was visiting, my friend was impressed with her fluency of the language.

Currently, I tutor students from different countries, including Colombia, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Korea, and Peru to help them in college and business. In Peru and Mexico, I taught ESL full-time to adults, college students, and high school students. The classes ranged from basic English where the students had little to no English experience to advanced business conversation among nearly fluent ESL speakers.

About Jackie
Hi! My name is Jackie, and I have 15+ years of experience in teaching, tutoring, and training. Currently, I am enjoying managing two small businesses while teaching students part time.

All of my students, meaning a perfect 100%, have improved their grades by at least one letter grade, if not more, and passed every one of their tests and exams. I help ALL my clients reach their goals!

A couple years ago, I returned to San Diego after living in Peru for several years where I taught English as a second language. My students ranged from adult business people and academicians to primary and secondary school students. I really needed to utilize different teaching methods depending on each student’s needs. Some students wanted more business-related conversation, so I had to be able to teach business principles in marketing, communication,
logistics, interviewing, and so much more. Critical thinking was an area that I pushed my business students to improve. Other students needed to work on the basics of grammar, reading, and writing, and we had a lot of fun in class, whether going through the interactive lesson or improvising by playing fun games to emphasize thinking on their feet in another language.

The feedback I often received from my Peruvian students, as well as my students in Mexico and the U.S., was that I made learning an enjoyable experience—they wanted to work harder to advance quickly in their classes. All of my students agree that I have a lot of patience and turn even the most challenging lessons into ones of positivity and encouragement. I provide critical feedback in the most constructive of ways that help the students reach conclusions on their own. I enjoy being there to support and guide their experience!

Before I left for Peru, I worked at St Vincent de Paul Village (part of Father Joe's Villages) in downtown San Diego. There I focused on Health Education. I built the Villages' first Health Education department and helped start its innovative Health & Wellness program. As part of these two programs, I taught homeless and low-income adults with and without learning disabilities, as well as children from preschoolers to high school students. Teaching such a wide variety of students how to improve their health while living in sometimes precarious situations without much income or stability pushed me to think creatively and come up with memorable ways to engage the students and help them apply what they had learned in their daily routine.

In high school, I took all AP and college prep classes. I went to a liberal arts college in Virginia where I focused on social studies and biology. I spent a few years training business people in Microsoft Office, Photoshop, InDesign, as well as presentation techniques. In grad school, I specialized in applied anthropology and public health. During that time, I tutored students in web design. In between, I've worked in Communications and Training in international health and development, so I have a lot of experience to bring to teaching.

Basically, I love teaching. I'm enthusiastic yet patient, and I absolutely adore helping kids and adults alike learn. It's such a sense of accomplishment when my students show off their terrific grades. I see the same look in my students’ eyes regardless of age—that pride that shines from within, that exuberant smile, like they can conquer anything. I want my students to keep that pride for a long, long time.

Right now, I'm writing two textbooks to be used in my Spanish classes. I've also written several academic articles published online. I love traveling, cats, and learning!

Yes, English can be fun! My ESL teaching method is adaptable to fit the student's needs, since I believe everyone has a different learning style and my lesson plans reflect that style. I have been teaching ESL for over 15 years - both in college and in high school. In addition, I have taught English abroad and I am fluent in a variety of languages.
I want my students to reach their full potential in learning English, but also to enjoy themselves. I want to help you build a solid foundation in the area of communication that suit your requirements - speaking, reading, or writing,(or a combination of all three). Send me an email !

About Ghida
I have been a professional educator for over 30 years, having just retired from 16 years public school teaching. I graduated from Edinburgh University, Scotland with a degree in Modern Languages, & from Catholic University of America with a PhD in Comparative Literature.
Teaching is my one great passion - I want to share my love of languages and literature with learners of all ages. I have taught elementary school children, high school students, college students and adults - including Franciscan brothers in a monastery!
My other interests include music, reading, gardening and travel. This year I hope to visit Portugal for the first time, and to also learn how to draw and do watercolors.
I am active in our local community including volunteering and mentoring in various organizations .

Since I became TEFL certified, I have taught ESL across China and online. Thanks to my education, I have learned the newest and most effective strategies for language acquisition and development in ESL students. Through my experience, I have gained a unique and personalized approach and have developed state-of-the-art methods for creating avenues to learning English. While some view it as unconventional, I find my approach very simple: use the language in real life. I encourage students to create real relationships with real, native speakers. It’s not revolutionary, but for some reason it’s not the mainstream approach. The classroom is important, but true language acquisition takes place on the ground. I give students the tools they need to do that.

About Samuel
¡Hola! Congratulations on beginning your language-learning journey, wither with Spanish or ESL. My name is Sam, and I have been teaching language for close to a decade. Ever since my first trip to Mexico all those years ago, I have been learning more and more about the importance of acquiring language through real relationships with real native speakers. I have made countless friends over the years, all across the globe, and as such I have taken my language skills to a level the classroom alone could never take me. That said, it's important to pair real-world experience with personalized language development in a classroom setting. As your instructor, I will give you the tools necessary to master Spanish or ESL grammar, punctuation, vocabulary, and all things reading, writing, speaking and listening. In addition, I provide students with i
nstruction on how to speak to native speakers, develop personal relationships with people, work new material into conversation, and how to break free from the fear of making mistakes. If you're up for the challenge, let's get started!
