I am proud to say that I am very familiar with Amie's proficiency in Spanish in dual capacities. One as a former co-worker where she served as a bilingual interpreter and translator working with Hispanic immigrants and second, on an instructor level. Amie's ability to interpret complex legal documents at work was consistently met with praise and admiration by her clients and superiors.
I also had the pleasure of doing a beginner-intermediate class with Amie in a private setting with another student. I am in my early 30's and have been taking Spanish classes since 7th grade through college, however, being that I am a non-native speaker, I have not had anyone to practice with for years. Taking classes with Amie proved to be an excellent way to brush up on my intermediate knowledge of the romance language with an instructor who is fluent, patient, and kind. My Spanish comprehension is better than my ability to speak it as I am normally too shy to engage in conversation with others, but Amie provided such a comfortable and welcoming environment that I was able to converse with her openly for hours. Amie's knowledge and fluency in the language was very evident throughout our lesson. I left feeling more confident and equipped in my ability to speak Spanish. I would highly recommend Amie as a tutor or instructor and am positive that she will leave you wanting more.

I had my first lesson and I am really excited and encourage. I feel that Candida was genuinely interested in understanding my goals and is committed to helping me achieve them. I also know that she is very well versed in all facets of music and I can learn from her. Time to Practice!

Candida is a great teacher and artist. She does way more than just teaching technique because she does her best to get the artist inside you. Candida helps you discover your inner self and get it out through your voice. She is patient, objective, and very kind. She is by far one of the greatest teachers I've had the chance to work with, not just for music but any subject.
I highly recommend Candida, and I'm looking forward to continuing my music education with her.

Candida is the best music instructor I've ever had! She is always well prepared, understanding, very knowledgeable, and extremely technologically proficient. Her effervescence and energetic exuberance both relaxes and motivates you. She is a professional performer and a master teacher, and combines all of these great qualities into a great productive learning experience. I recommend her without reservation if you love music and want to have a great learning experience!

Fabio is an awesome teacher! He is very knowledgeable but very easy to to talk to and explains things in a way that makes sense to me. I am really enjoying my classes so far and have already learned quite a bit (who knew there was more to photography than just point and shoot? lol). If you are looking to invest in your career or education, you will not regret giving his classes a try.

Andressa delivers an exceptional lesson experience. I've had her teaching me for almost 6 months and I can't even describe how much my English has improved since then.

Andy is a great teacher. After a couple of months taking classes with her, I was able to have conversations in Portuguese and even do business in Brazil. I highly recommend her as a teacher, she's simply the best!
