Spanish Tutoring and Voice Singing
(scroll down for the second)
Hi, my name is Lissette Napoleoni and I’ve been teaching for 16 years! I started teaching Spanish back in 2000, from beginning to advanced levels. My first job was at Berlitz located in Santa Monica. After teaching there, I placed ads in local papers and gathered many students throughout the years. I have helped business owners, filmmakers, actors, lawyers and folks from all paths, achieve their language goals with Spanish, including:
-assisting students pass advanced Spanish tests
-giving lessons to college students trying to finish their language requirements
-coaching actors for TV auditions
-helping employers understand their staff and/or workers
-teaching Spanish to those traveling to South America or Spain for business
-teaching Spanish to folks who want to learn the language so they can speak to their significant other
In 1997, I started my first and only band so far. Our music videos played on MTV Espanol, VHUno and MTV Puerto Rico. It’s an indie/alternative kind of band, with some dance and pop elements. Slowly I started to transition to more formal types of singing (outside of the band), and my singing range got really good! If you’re seeking help with your singing, whether to learn how to sing a simple song, or one that requires power and note control, I can help you. I also can help with stage movement, confidence, dance and acting skills that you can use while you sing. From 2008 to 2015, I owned and managed two theaters (Las Vegas/LA) where I produced music and comedy shows (pop/rock and Improv). I also performed as a comedic actor (Improv) and singer at my venue, so I have lots of stage experience.
Regarding my educational background, I completed elementary and high school studies in Puerto Rico. Spanish is my native language and I didn’t even speak English until I was 18 years old. Now I have a great command of the English language, as well as of my native language, Spanish. My Bachelor’s Degree is in Journalism/Advertising from Ohio State University, where I graduated with honors. My Master’s degree is in Telecommunication Arts from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, where I was awarded a full fellowship.
