Violin and Viola Lessons - Learn a new instrument or improve your skills


I'm an experienced teacher, with students of different levels/ages.
I enjoy the diversity of students and understanding of their different ways of learning and goals and for me, this is the best part of the job - to know an treat each student as a unique person that they are.
You'll be encouraged to make music from the very first day. Together with some necessary music theory, always applied to the instrument, you'll learn pieces of gradual difficulty. We make use of progressive tuition methods and you'll learn a solid technique by playing scales, bowing and fingering exercises and easy tunes to begin with. Repertoire includes etudes, playful and challenging concert pieces and from the very beginning duos to play with the teacher.

Learning french language through different cultural approaches
This class aims to teach french language through different forms of study rather than a classic academic approach to language learning. For example those methods can be expressed in oral conversations, study of texts, art pieces, or movies in french, and of course more conventional teaching. I believe that a language is learnt better in it's cultural context and applications rather than though a decontextualized approach. If you are interested don't hesitate to ask any question.

French lessons for all purposes : traveling, taking exams, translating, reading, writing...

I've recently moved to Amsterdam and I would love to continue teaching to anyone interested in learning French! Wether you would like to study French for fun, business, traveling, or just to chit chat over a cup of coffee, I'll be glad to share my knowledge of the language. I make a point to adapt lessons to your study objectives, your interests and your learning strategies. I love sharing experiences, learning from my students as much as teaching. I enjoy teaching every level so wether you are a beginner, an intermediate or an advanced learner, I'm looking forward to meeting you!

Jeanette
Trombone Lessons
I am a professional bass trombonist, I have been teaching for over 5 years from beginners to college level. I am from the United States where I have taught private and large group lessons. I am currently a Masters student at the CvA and teach tenor, bass, and contrabass trombone. Through my experience I have found it crucial to start lessons with setting goals for each student; from simply enjoying to advance your skills to competitions or college auditions. Just like any art that you wish to learn, practicing is a vital part to succeed, therefore starting with fundamentals and slowly advancing our techniques into repertoire is a very personal experience and we all learn at different rates. With this one on one lesson each student has the convenience of setting personal goals, taking different routes to succeed, and overall enjoying the interaction between teacher and student. I always like to begin lessons with a trial lesson, normally lasting around 30 minutes. This will allow me to learn more about the student and their aspirations. Likewise the student will learn about my teaching methods and the structure of the lessons. I'd be more than glad to share more information about my experience and educational background. I am fluent in English and Spanish.

Math, English, and Test Preparation - In-person or Online
With 6 years of tutoring experience in Math and English, I absolutely love working with students of all ages. I strive to get all students to gain confidence and self-esteem during my session. I think this allows for a better learning environment and creates a place where students can problem solve and critically think about different concepts! I create engaged lessons, activities, and games so students are able to learn each concept or idea in an interactive and different way! I have experience in all levels of math up to Calculus 2 and test preparation experience, including the SAT, AP, and ACT. English experience in elementary and middle school. Knowledge of IB school curriculum too!
