I've been teaching Russian for 5 years. Within the first lessons, you'll know alphabet and how to greet people in Russian.
From lesson to lesson you'll increase vocabulary and after a few lessons your knowledge will be enough to read short stories. I use online workbooks, textbooks. I have a list of websites. They let students learn grammar, listen to dialogues, watch movies. I love working with students and can't wait to start this journey through Russian grammar and literature with you.

I am a native Spanish speaker passionate about teaching and helping other improve in my language. My classes are dynamic and I like the participation and interaction with the students. I teach the basic grammar to understand construction of sentences, and mainly focus on vocabulary, and speaking tricks to advance in understanding and speaking. All this is according to the student's needs and interests. I put all the effort in avoiding complicating explanations, a language is something that feeds on creativity, and I help developing it

Ahoj! Would you like to learn something more in Czech than just how to order a beer (pivo) ?

Let's get serious (not only because Czech has 7 cases, really weird sounds -ř- and words without vowels!).

My lessons are structured and have a clear goal of what to learn by the end of the class. My primary focus is on speaking and using correct grammar in oral presentation while I give you written exercises to do as your homework. I like to use exercise books as well as online articles, videos (news) and different internet learning platforms. When classes are online, we will do a plenty of interactive activities, role-plays, dialogues, speaking games, etc.

About Eliska

I am an experienced ESL teacher, qualified interpreter and translator. I am a native Czech and new to the US. Studying interpreting and translation helped me to understand differences between the languages which I then applied when teaching my husband Czech. During my classes, you will feel enc

I have been taking Czech lessons with Eliska for 10 months. She is terrific!! Very knowledgeable, patient, and fun to work with. Initially my abilities were rudimentary, but with her teaching I was able to get around very well in the Czech Republic. Usually sends some additional work prior to the lesson, and returns corrected homework within a day or two. I would recommend her highly!
Parker
Very positive demeanor, which helps to learn when you might feel bad or self-conscious for butchering grammar/pronunciation, and fun to talk to. As a native speaker of Czech, she has a slight accent yet isn't difficult to understand, only had to stop to ask her for clarification two or three times over the course of an hour. Good pacing, was not overwhelmed but still remained engaged.

Before our first session even began, she was already helpful in providing some suggestions for culture to look up, such as popular artists in certain genres of music.

Then at the end of our first session,
she left me with a few straightforward assignments to learn from until our next lesson.

I've had a great first impression. I'll see where things go in the future. Děkuju, Eliška!

Great first lesson.

"Elsa was an amazing French instructor for my daughters. She is patient (so so patient!!) and always positive and happy. She was always perfectly on time and prepared completely for each and every lesson. Above all, she really engaged my girls with the French curriculum each week and they never complained about having their lessons. Elsa used a combination of books, songs, and online material to keep the lessons moving at pace and was brilliant at gauging when my girls needed to switch things up. She really made every lesson fun! I strongly recommend her to anyone."

She displayed an expert knowledge of the language, but was still able to teach beginners. Plus we could tell she really loved Portuguese.

The online format was great. Cant wait for the next lesson."

"Mr. Chau Nguyen is a dedicated, experienced, and friendly Vietnamese teacher. He adapts readily to different types of students and is able to teach both beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. One of Chau's strengths is that he makes class interesting for the learner, by using a variety of different topics to keep things fun. For more advanced students, Chau will engage your mind and discuss a variety of political, economic, and cultural issues.

Chau has a long and impressive teaching resume, most recently as an instructor for U.S. diplomats going to Vietnam, at the U.S. State Department's Foreign Service Institute. I highly recommend Chau as a Vietnamese instructor."
