Utilizo la aplicación Zoom para lecciones de inglés interactivas en vivo desde la comodidad de su hogar.

Durante cinco años en Suiza, enseñé inglés como segundo idioma a todos los niveles y todas las edades en la Escuela Internacional de Idiomas Inlingua en la ciudad bilingüe de Biel / Bienne.

Esto incluyó lecciones tanto grupales como individuales, desde principiantes hasta estudiantes avanzados que estudian para los exámenes TEFL, TOEFL y Proficiency.

Después de eso, pasé tres años en España como director de la misma franquicia de idiomas en Santa Cruz de Tenerife, donde mis deberes incluían preparar a los estudiantes para los exámenes, programas para jóvenes de la escuela de verano, lecciones privadas y grupales, coordinar la programación y trabajar con principiantes a través de los intermedios hasta los más avanzados.

El método Inlingua se basa en la inmersión total donde todos los diálogos y ejercicios se llevan a cabo únicamente en el idioma de destino. Como tal, he enseñado

Scott
I've played guitar off and on since my teens, but was self-taught. I had the basic skills to play along with most songs, but no understanding of how to build a song or a melody. In the year I've spent with Jeff, he opened my eyes to music theory in a way that is instantly applicable. I am much more comfortable improvising around a chord progression. I can see the patterns in songs and how and when to utilize different scales and modes.

Jeff's book with Schell Barkley, Fingering Mastery - scales and modes for the guitar fretboard, demystifies these topics with images and patterns that are different from any other theory book I've seen. His backing tracks provide the foundation to apply these patterns, and his demonstrations during lessons bring them together using examples from standards and popular songs.

Last thing - Jeff has an incredibly strong understanding of world music and music history, much of which is earned through decades of playing live music around the world. I find this adds a lot to the experience of a lesson with him.

I recommend Jeff without reservation.
Randa
The music theory that he taught me makes it easy to play along with any song!

A patient and caring teacher, sensitive to the student's needs. He taught what I wanted to know by teaching me what I needed.

Concertina:
A free-reed musical instrument, like the various accordions and the harmonica. It has a bellows, and buttons typically on both ends of it. When pressed, the buttons travel in the same direction as the bellows, unlike accordion buttons, which travel perpendicularly to the bellows. Always starting with basics the student will learn how to hold the instrument, notes, chords, reading, and playing songs.

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.
John J Conlon
Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC
Troy W.
Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!
