Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bodybuilding

I have over twenty years of experience in the area of bodybuilding and weight training. In my twenties I was a competitive bodybuider on the national level. I have trained with several national and world champions. I have also been a gym owner and personal trainer. I continue to practice the sport and train several times each week.

I am very familiar with all the weight training exercises for each body part. For that reason, I am confident that I can create a program to suit your needs and help you achieve your goals. Further, I can definitely say without any reservations that whatever your sport and whatever your fitness goals, whether you want to train to improve your performance or simply want to lead a healthier lifestyle, you can benefit from bodybuilding and weight training.

Salsa Dancing

I learned to dance salsa in my native Puerto Rico. There, we learn to dance to the beat of the percussion. We first learn the basic steps. The turns come later. We are not concerned with dancing On the 1 or On the 2, like the American ballroom style salsa dancers.

During the eighties, I lived in New York City where Salsa dancing and Salsa clubs were very popular. When I teach others how to dance, I am very patient and thoughtful. I understand that Latin rhythms are not easy for non-Caribbean Latinos to grasp, but with a little practice, they can be mastered.
