About Makala
I have loved music as long as I can remember. I know its cliche© to say so, but it's true! :)

For me, having parents of different ethnicity and siblings that were much older than me, I was heavily impacted by the wide variety of music to which my family members listened. The force of this crayon box of rhythms and sounds captivated and affected me so much that it is the key experience that I draw from in making my own music today.

I grew up in Fairbanks, Alaska (a small town in the center of the state) so my only option for entertainment and fun was getting involved in the arts! I started performing at a very young age as both a dancer and a musician. I studied classical ballet, modern dance, hip hop and street dance, and world dance traditions throughout my formative years, which helped me to gain rhythmical fluency. I started my
formal music training when I began to play the cello. From then on, I was hooked on the sound and I immersed myself in music as much as I could; performing, competing, working in as many musical groups and productions as possible (as both a vocalist and cellist), and even teaching.

I moved to Seattle in 2003 to study opera at Cornish College of the arts, only to later change my major to Jazz, and then again to Latin music studies. Since graduating from Cornish in 2007, with my Bachelor of Music degree, I have been actively and diligently working in the local music scene; performing and recording with artists and groups of many different styles. Everything from various Latin genres, to Rock, to R&B/Soul, to Hip Hop, and Jazz. Through my music, I aim to reach out to people of all cultures. I also aim to teach my own students with the hope that they too can discover the same continuous love of music that I have grown to feel (and still am growing to feel) over the years. :)

*** Studio Equipment ***
88 key piano, cello, various percussion instruments, guitars, ukulele, library, computer, lessons are given in a private studio.

*** Specialties ***
As far as voice goes, I teach all genres and styles but I personally specialize in the Latin genres. I teach all aspects of the music; rhythm, harmony, theory. I even teach performance; how to work with a band in real-time communication, song communication (or story telling as I like to call it), and developing ones own personal style. I believe that there is much more to singing than just vocal technique alone, so I believe in teaching musical fundamentals and functions so that my students will not only be considered vocalists, but competent musicians.

Makala hit it off with our third-grader right off the bat, and she was a great sport about meeting the whole family at the first lesson. She put Josh at ease, evaluated what he already knew without making him uncomfortable, and got right to work improving his fundamentals in a way that seemed to get him really motivated. We're extending our series - thanks Makala!

Makala is very seasoned at teaching music. I love that fact that she's patient but at the same time persistent. My daughter has grown tremendously from being under Makala's structured music teachings. Makala is very versatile and has a really open of mind with music. She can sing like an angel and her personality is warm and friendly. You can't go wrong with choosing her to help you with your music.

Raised in largely bilingual household. B.A. in Spanish from UW (cum laude). English fluency slightly stronger. Extremely high level Spanish proficiency although the minutiae within humor can sometimes be lost. Excellent for those who need help with pronunciation, grammar (clarification of grammatical rules like the difference between a direct object and an indirect object, etc.), conjugation, and conversation.

About David
Many years of drum instruction with students who have learned best with alternative learner-centered approaches including: extreme patience, slow to fast repetition of patterns and exercises, focused breathing, as well as sight-reading, rhythm and ear training. Students with: Asperger's, Autism, Dyslexia and related states have benefited greatly.

I teach in a way that is as focused on the grammar as you want to be. I prefer conversational classes, but for many in traditional classes it is the grammar that they are not understanding.

About Bryce
The best non native Spanish tutor/teacher -

I am a Spanish Language Consultant

I am a concierge tutor meaning that I make every meeting personalized for you. Everyone learns a language differently. For some they just want to speak. For others they want to learn to read or write. And some want to do it all. Either way I will do everything in my power to assure that happens.

Where did I learn Spanish?
I took it in high school like all of us and failed out in the second year. Then seven years later I took a class in Bellevue College and got the best grade in the class. Soon after the class finished I moved to Bogot√°, Colombia for a year and half where I really improved my level to near native status. When I was a kid in high school I did not see how cool it is to be able to speak another language nor did I care. However, now it w
as a defining point in my life and something that no one can take away from me.

Because I am more expensive I have fewer clients which gives me more time to focus on you the student. My schedule is also very flexible giving you plenty of freedom over when to meet.

I am connected to a network of native speakers who are all my very close friends who can be included in the sessions when the time is right or whenever you may like.

I have been a Spanish Consultant since 2011 and love doing it. I really get fired up when students begin to take off on their own with the language with less and less of my help.

I don't think you will find a more passionate tutor in the area. The passion comes through in the lessons.

Students who will succeed with me can be of any age but should have these traits if they wish to excel:
Discipline
Not afraid to make mistakes
Positive attitudes
Open mind
Willingness to think outside of the box

Profile_56875_pi_Josh%20B%20083
Mountlake Terrace, WA

View Full Profile

I took 8 years of Spanish classes and lived in Ecuador where I used Spanish on a daily basis.

My teaching philosophy is to help students engage in learning. I find that a personal connection to new information makes it more engaging and meaningful, and students remember it better too. It's also more fun.

That being said, if learning is more readily achieved for your student through other methods, we will do whatever works best. I cater to results, because my ultimate goal is the student's success.

About Joshua
I am a tutor who earned a music teaching degree, substitute taught, and didn't become a school teacher. I held professional tech retail jobs and am supplementing my life with my passion - education.

Whatever subject or instrument I teach, I celebrate students' successes; and I enjoy helping learners have new aha moments.

The majority of my students take guitar, bass guitar, or Spanish lessons. I am an educator and help my students learn other skills and knowledge sets too.

I went to Ohio State University for college, earned a BA in Music Education, and graduated Cum Laude. I also spent 4 years in the Ohio State University Marching Band.

Through my healing journey, I've developed patience, insight, and understanding for my students' learning processes.

I'm excited to help you incorporate new skills into your life!

In search of helping our 10 year old son build some self-confidence we sought out clarinet lessons this summer. He started playing in school last year, and it was something our reluctant son liked "enough" to want to build up some competency. Joshua has been amazing! He finds just the right amount of challenge to encourage my son to practice, but not get discouraged. My son looks forward to his lesson each week and told me that he isn't even sure he wants to switch to saxophone next year because he is having so much fun playing the clarinet. Joshua is amazing with children, and has spent time getting to know our kiddo and find out what will work best for him. Patient, calm, and inspiring--very talented instructor.

Joshua Blatman is a fantastic music teacher. He has a great resume, is experienced in a variety of instruments, and a solid background in teaching.
I think any kids lucky enough to learn music from Joshua will have fun and hopefully fall in love with learning it, just like my kids have.

I whole-heartedly recommend Joshua for anyone of any age and any skill level who wants to enrich their life learning guitar. I appreciate the fact that he makes the time and has the patience to adapt to my needs. Joshua is flexible in scheduling - especially for those unforeseen incidents - which is appreciated.

Being an adult beginner with music lessons, Joshua eases my frustration on immediately wanting to play perfect notes and chords. I look forward to continuing lessons.

Efrain is a wonderful teacher! Since starting with Efrain my Spanish has improved dramatically. My comprehension and speaking have both seen very sharp increases. He is very generous with his time, easy to get along with, and always makes sure you are engaged and enjoying your learning. I had some previous experience learning the language and studied a lot on my own, and he was great at working with me and coming up with plan together that we both felt would meet my needs and goals. I am 5 lessons deep and plan on continuing!

Tucson, AZ

I take a communicative approach to teaching languages, making sure you feel comfortable communicating in Spanish and helping you with grammar and pronunciation along the way. I can help with conversational Spanish, grammar, pronunciation, AP Spanish prep, and/or vocabulary. As a PhD student in Second Language Acquisition and Teaching, I bring my expertise to the lessons to make learning hands on and interactive for all ages, both in person and online.

About Natalie
Hello, bonjour, hola! I'm Natalie and I've been tutoring for eight years and formally teaching for four years. I've loved helping students meet their goals in French, English, and Spanish, and I look forward to helping you.

I hold a B.A. in French and Chinese and an M.A. in French Linguistics, both from University of Florida. Currently, I am a first year PhD student in Second Language Acquisition and Teaching. As such, I am truly centered on helping you achieve your language goals from traveling abroad to passing a language test to communicating in your work or school environment. My flexibility and enthusiasm coupled with individualized lesson plans will help increase your confidence in communicating in other language(s).

I'm dedicated to help you becoming bilingual or proficient for travel needs in another language. Bilingualism
not only makes you smarter, as you have to learn to switch in between languages and inhibit one while using the other, it also makes you less likely to get Alzheimer's or dementia (New York Times, 2012). So what are you waiting for? Let's get you on your language learning journey today! Bon voyage! Buen viaje!

Note: I will be co-leading and teaching a study abroad program in Paris this summer (June-July), so will have slightly different availability and will be 6 hours ahead of Eastern Time (9 hours ahead of Pacific). Please contact me if you're interested in lessons and we will find a time that works for you!

I am not a native Spanish speaker, but I learned to read in Spanish before learning to read in English. I can help others who are struggling with figuring out why the Spanish language is the way it is. I can also motivate students who think they will never learn to speak Spanish.

About Shekkola
My first teaching role was as a catechist at the age of 18. After getting a degree in chemical engineering, i went to work as a process engineer and established a mentor ship program at a school with low student performance.

After working as an engineer for 11 years, I chose to enter the field of education to spend more time with my children and other children in need. My goal has always been helping others. I look forward to helping you!

Shekkola taught Math and science to my three boys in middle school and her teaching was transformative, since they neither liked math nor were good at it before she began to teach them. All three went on to science careers and two went on to take advanced math courses. Once they joined her class they began to love Mathas did all the children in Shekkola's class - which is practically unheard of. I don't know what her magic is, but I am eternally grateful to her
