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

Mr. Jeff Brent is a true teacher's teacher! He understands how to effectively communicate and convey to students' difficult aspects of learning in the most understandable way possible, so students master their instruments. The books he wrote are the best ones ever written. And Mr. Brent knows and wrote books with the who's who of Saxophone artists!

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!

Ben has been so committed and skilled in helping me work towards my singing goals. He's been helping me build a strong foundation of vocal technique with a detailed pedagogy that can feel like hard work at times, but that undoubtedly has delivered big results! He's also been a great coach on how to perform and convey the message of a song. Highly recommend!

Overall, my daughter did learn something. However, his workspace environment was not child welcoming. Also he was not very organized and didn't communicate well at all. I did not purchase anymore lessons from him.
