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, D

DAVID IS AN OUTSTANDING TEACHER IN EVERY RESPECT. HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH SEEMS EXCELLENT, AND HIS INTEREST IN THIS LANGUAGE IS CLEARLY VERY STRONG. THIS ALLOWS CLOSE ANALYSIS OF SPANISH, AND STANDS AS A SIGNIFICANT BENEFIT TO THE DIDACTIC PROCESS. IN TURN THIS PROMOTES A SPIRIT OF LEARNING IN CLASS WHICH IS INFORMATIVE AND GOOD FUN. FINALLY HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH/ENGLISH COGNATES AND INDO-EUROPEAN ROOTS IS UNUSUALLY BROAD, WHICH MAKES LEARNING SPANISH WITH HIM EASY AND ENTERTAINING. I BELIEVE DAVID HAS A TRUE VOCATION FOR TEACHING, AND I HOPE I CAN GO ON WITH LESSONS WITH HIM FOR SOME TIME TO COME.

David is a great instructor. My son is 9 and a beginner and David is very good with him.

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.

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.

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 lear

Growing up bilingual, allowed early exposure to the Spanish Language. Being brought up using two languages and two different cultures, allowed me to learn the challenges and benefits of learning another language. Which I feel helps me be a better teacher, understanding the challenges students may face but also sharing the benefits learning a foreign language has.

I would like to help you carry on your Spanish learning adventure. We can discuss topics such as : grammar, sentence structure, conversation skills, culture and even 'accent',

John is a fantastic instructor. He has a love for educating others on musical expression and he is a wellspring of musical knowledge. He provides a depth to the piano that I wouldn't have noticed if I taught myself how to play.

John emphasized how to shape musical phrases to make music as opposed to a collection of notes. He had a good ear for honing in on my weaknesses such as how some notes that I played stuck out or the movement of my arms. Most importantly, he taught me how to approach practicing the piano in an effective way. I learned how to listen to myself and how give each note, phrase, and piece the attention and musicality it needed to sound beautifully.

For an adult learner as myself, he was accommodating with how busy I was. He adjusted to my needs and work schedule and taught at a reasonable pace. However, he also never veered from his expectations and praised what I was doing right and provided methods to fix what I was doing wrong.

Although there were times when John expressed his passion for music by delving into tangents on the broader historical significance of pieces, his mini-lectures were never irrelevant nor inappropriate. For example, he commented on how in waltzes, the rhythm on the left hand would need to emulate how a Romantic era string section would play it. For anyone who is serious about how or why pieces of music are meant to be played in a certain way, John is great about contextualizing pieces to make them sound great.

Most importantly, he made practicing piano something that was both enjoyable and challenging, which is difficult to find in a teacher. I owe a great deal of my musicianship to John and he met my expectations of learning the piano. Thank you!
Kenny
John is really great. He takes the time to understand what your goals are and teaches according to your needs. He is patient and provides constructive comments.

Seattleites Speaking Spanish

By Tali H. - Seattle Spanish Teacher

Are you trying to increase your Spanish language skills? Are you interested in taking Spanish lessons in Seattle? Although Seattle doesn’t have the biggest Spanish-speaking population (the U.S. Census Bureau estimates there are approximately 200,000 speakers in a population of 3.5 million), there is still an extraordinary array of learning and practice opportunities for you to explore while taking Spanish lessons in Seattle!

Spanish Meetups Practice is key to learning any language. That being said, it is extremely important to find others to converse with in the language you want to learn. But, finding people can be difficult sometimes, right? This is especially true if you’re living in a big city like Seattle. You’re shy or uncomfortable asking people to converse with you, or you’re at a very basic level, where even simple conversation can be challenging. However, Seattle has an awesome resource, perfectly named “Spanish Language Meetups.” This website allows you to find a meetup group or even to start your own. You can sort local meetups by location, level, date, or specific key words. What’s more, you can see group reviews, short bios, and (through Facebook association) other people you might know in the group! Check out some Seattle Spanish meetups here: http://spanish.meetup.com/cities/us/wa/seattle/

Immerse Yourself in Spanish-Speaking Environments Aside from actively practicing your speaking skills, just being in an environment where people are conversing in Spanish or where Spanish-speaking songs are playing can be helpful. Try checking out a few of Seattle’s most authentic Mexican restaurants. Queen Anne’s best Mexican restaurant, Mezcaleria Oaxaca, is known for its delectable and authentic menu. In Ballard, La Carta de Oaxaca is a must. Completely made up of dishes from the state of Oaxaca, the menu not only serves to delight the tastebuds, but can also serve as a topic of Spanish conversation with the waiters!

University Resources Seattle is home to many accredited universities and colleges, including the University of Washington, Seattle University, Seattle Central College, Seattle Pacific University, etc. The Spanish language faculty at these colleges work hard to create a busy event calendar for students to practice Spanish and learn about the culture - and many of these events are open to the community! In the past year, the University of Washington has hosted a wide array of events, from a Valentine's Day dance centered around Spanish culture to numerous guest presentations (in slow Spanish) on current events and projects. Peruse some of these event calendars and find events that fit your schedule and interests.

Check Out Seattle’s Spanish Heritage Sites Seattle is home to many Spanish heritage sites where you can enrich your understanding of the Spanish culture. A must-visit is the El Centro de la Raza, a Latino community service center established by a group of ESL students. The center provides many different social services and is involved with many educational and cultural programs. Find out more here: http://www.elcentrodelaraza.org/

Once again, the key to learning Spanish is practice, practice, practice! You will make mistakes. You may feel like a fool at times. You may have an awkward conversation. But, at the end of the day, the people you meet, the things you learn, and the improvement you see in your language skills will all be worth it! ¡Buena suerte!
