I understand how frustrating can be to learn a new language, believe me, I learned English when I was 20. It took me a while but i mastered it. I'm also studying French and it's getting easier.
I will teach you spanish by actually TALKING to you, not by making you read books or repeating the same words over and over. We rehearse actual conversations that will help you in the real world. Yes, we all get it, "las rosas son rojas y la biblioteca es azul" but who actually says those words in a conversation? Schedule a lesson with me and start talking EN ESPAÑOL HOY!
Hi there! I'm Xavier V. from Bogota, Colombia living in sunny Miami since 2008. I'm bilingual English/Spanish, proficient in French and learning Romanian. I graduated with the highest honors in Music Business from Miami Dade College in 2015, I've been working in broadcast media since after school and now working with ESPN in Coral Gables, FL.
I'm focused, patient, enthusiastic and very active! "Schedule a lesson with me now and start either speaking in Spanish or playing Drums from day 1!."
** Drum prospects read below ***
I've been playing drums since 2000. First I studied drums in Colombia with Shakira's former drummer Italo Lamboglia for 4 years and then when I moved here in US, I've kept refining my craft taking drum lessons at Miami Dade College, learning new techniques and so on.
I'm currently an independent drummer. I
play with many artists and bands as a freelancer, So I get to perform very often live in different venues all over South Florida. I also freelance at different T.V. Networks as a background drummer and percussionist for artists promoting their songs on TV shows. I have won drum contests and competitions on stores and online as well. I have recorded various records and singles with major producers and performed in different countries as a hired gun.
I've been teaching and sharing my knowledge in drums with others since I first started playing drums! I'm a believer that the more you share, the more you learn, and overtime I've realized that the process never stops. At first I was a drum instructor at a local church in Colombia. I had 10 - 20 students in a single classroom -- It was a great experience! Then when I came to the U.S. I've been mainly instructing privately, so I have plenty of experience.
Schedule a lesson with me now and start learning the art of playing drums. I am looking forward to meeting new and eager students who really want to bring their inner music out to share with the rest of us and develop their skills to the peak of their abilities. After all, you might be the next music prodigy, but perhaps you don't know it yet! See you soon!
*** Studio Equipment *** living room: electric drum set, additional seating for parents.

I also use different methods and books like the Joe Porcaro's Drum Method, Syncopation, Stick Control, Even in the odds, among different methods depending on the style you want to focus on like Rock, Pop, Jazz, Latin, Fusion or even Metal.
I would highly recommend Edgar to anyone looking for drum lessons. He is very personable and knowledgeable. His lessons are challenging yet doable. He has great patience and makes you want to learn more. Great Teacher!

I liked him very much and my son really enjoyed his class!

Edgar really helped me keep up my Spanish conversational skills. He was always on time and polite, helpful and knowledgable.
Spanish is my second language. My mother was a Spanish teacher in the elementary school level and used music as an amazing resource for teaching Spanish to kids. I'll use the same techniques and ideas, as well as focusing on reading and writing the very romantic language.
I love to create. The way I'm most comfortable creating is through writing; whether it's a song, a short story, a poem or a script. Writing has always been the bass line in my life; the heartbeat.
Music and film are both passions of mine. I graduated from Berklee College of Music where I studied Songwriting and Music Therapy. I was pushed to my absolute limits lyrically and musically within these majors, and I am so grateful for it now that I'm on my own creative journey.
I have a great deal of experience, but I am also still learning. I think it is very important as a teacher to always be learning, especially through their students. Teaching these lessons is, of course, about progress and advancement - but also about enjoyment, confidence building and positive encouragement.
I have been teaching for over 25 years. I would love to give your student that aha moment and help increase the number of those so that eventually my job is done and he or she doesn't need me anymore :D
I am a woodwind specialist with my primary instrument being the clarinet. But, I also teach beginning to intermediate strings, piano, and percussion. I also have experience with teaching and tutoring reading, Spanish, and Math because of my minor in Spanish and my MBA in Finance.

Want to learn a new language? How about learning Spanish ? It doesn't matter if you know anything about it. I can teach you at any level and you will become an excellent speaker and writer. I'm from Venezuela and Spanish is my mother language. I have 5 years of experience teaching.
Hello!! I'm Maria Fernanda
I am a business administrator and I currently live in Madrid Spain where I am doing a Master in Business Analytics and Strategic Data.
In my spare time I love teaching English(basic and intermediate level) and Spanish(all levels). My teaching method is always depending on the student interest. Generally I try to do it the most fun, interesting and entertaining possible. I have a special rule: no other language allow in class(just Spanish or English depending on what language I'm teaching). I believe that the most efficient way to start learning a new language is to think, listen and speak just in that language. Of course I could be flexible if the student doesn't speak that new language at all. In my hometown (Venezuela) I had experience teaching basic English in an elementary school and teaching priv
et lessons for kids and teenagers as well.
Let me know if you are interested in taking classes with me. Don't lose the opportunity to learn Spanish with a native speaker!
¡¡Hola!! Soy María Fernanda, soy administradora de empresas y actualmente vivo en Madrid, España en donde me encuentro cursando un Master en Business Analytics and Strategic Data. En mi tiempo libre me encanta enseñar inglés (nivel básico e intermedio) y español (todos los niveles). Mi método de enseñanza depende siempre del interés del estudiante. Generalmente trato de hacerlo de la manera más divertida, interesante y entretenida posible. Tengo una regla especial: ningún otro idioma se permite en clase (sólo español o inglés dependiendo del idioma que estoy enseñando). Creo que la manera más eficiente de comenzar a aprender un nuevo idioma es pensar, escuchar y hablar solo en ese idioma. Por supuesto, podría ser flexible si el alumno no habla ese idioma nuevo en absoluto. En mi país natal (Venezuela) tuve experiencia enseñando inglés básico en una escuela primaria y también dando clases particulares a niños y adolescentes.
Avísame si estás interesado en tomar clases conmigo. ¡No pierdas la oportunidad de aprender inglés y comunicarte en cualquier lugar del mundo!
Hi Everyone, book a lesson with me because I am fun and patient but most importantly because I am also a student like you but in French and I know the struggles of learning a new language. I have material to teach you from and I speak English and Portuguese on top of my Spanish which is my mother tongue.
Hi, my name is Milton. I am 27 years old, I am Salvadoran but I live in Brazil for six months every year. I have traveled to Guatemala, Panama, and Brazil. I like learning languages and that is the reason why I speak excellent English and Portuguese. Currently, I am learning French.
On my free time, I go to the gym, listen to music, read, watch movies and go shopping.
I study Modern Languages at the university of El Salvador and there I discovered my passion in teaching. I started working with a NGO where I taught English, then I was hired at a public and private school. Also I did some teaching via Skype and that is how I helped others to improve their learning course.
Most of the time, my students ask me to prepare a conversational class where the student chooses a topic of his/her interest. When I had a classroom, I used to use a b
ook from where I would prepare my class. I like using current topics to keep the student's attention going.
Ralph is a good man and wonderful teacher. He really worry about if student learning. He Carefully prepare the lessons and always ask if student are comfortable or wants other kind of topic. His qualities are punctuality, attention, preparedness and ability to teach.

Ralph has a lot of patience and he likes talking about everything also he makes the lesson very attractive. By the way he is going to improve your english level.

I've been taking lessons with Ralph for almost a year now over Skype and I'm so pleased with my improvement. I'm always impressed with the preparation Ralph does for each lesson - a huge list of conversation topics or an article to discuss - and appreciate his enthusiasm, good humor, and patience. I started at an upper-intermediate level and Ralph has helped me refine the finer points of speaking to sound more native. Highly recommended!
I’m so excited for help you to reach your goals. I’m from Mexico and I’m native Spanish, I’m a teacher and I believe that learn a second language it should be a fun and unforgettable experience. I would love to help you to improve your Spanish skills, let’s make it happen!
I’m native Spanish from Mexico. I love meet new people, learn of new cultures and travel around the world. My hobbies are teach, read, play sports and travel.
- Learn Spanish with a native speaker - I have learned two other languages, each one in a different way which helped me understand different approaches to teach/learn a new language. - I’m a singer too, so I will make sure your pronunciation and clarity are in a good level, as well as help develop your listening skills.
I am an Opera Singer, currently based in the NYC area. I finished my undergrad in vocal performance at Universidad Central in Bogotá, Colombia and Master’s degree in music performance at the University of Denver.
The learning process is very different from one person to the other and this applies to languages, indeed. However, no matter what your pace is and what your goals are in a subject, my goal will always be making sure that you are learning something new every time, and of course, that you reach your goals in the process. Your process is personal and my job is to take the best from you.
Respect singing, I believe every person has a unique instrument, and no matter how easier or harder it could be for some people, anyone can develop his/her own instrument to the fullest!
I look forward to meet you and reach your singing and langu
"My son had fun every time he took class with Javier!"
"Daniel was a great instructor to learn with, he was very kind and likable as well as being a good teacher with a great understanding Spanish with an empha
sis on spoken Spanish over academic Spanish. Daniel was a great teacher I would recommend to anyone."
"She is thorough but maybe moves a little slowly..."
"Amazing teacher! He really helped me get to the next level. I strongly recommend him... Reliable and responsible."
"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."
"Gregorio is super patient and answers all your questions with detailed explanations. He's been an amazing instructor, I truly recommend him!!"
"Mariella is a great teacher! She's very patient and easily accepts you right where you are in your learning. She's fun to talk too and you will become
friends real quick."
"Georgina is a native speaker with a clear, concise approach and dives right in. So far so good."
