Olga is very passionate, patient and persistent voice teacher who strives to bring the best in her students. My daughters 10 and 12 started taking lessons with Olga an year ago. We saw phenomenal difference in both of their singing abilities in just few classes. Moreover my 10 year old daughter passed with flying colors ‘The certificate of merit -level 3’ exam and got selected to sing at the MTAC convention. Thank you Olga for your persistence and hats off to your patience. If there is tiny bit of constructive feedback it would be to seek help on organization skills, but being a mom myself I totally can discount that for your caliber of music.

About Shakira
Hello my name is Shakira I enjoy sign language and believe it is a great first language to teach your children! I have worked with children and adults both can comprehend the material pretty well. Sign language will help them communicate with more people in this big, but small world we live in. One of my best students was a 6 year old little girl who enjoyed learning because I enjoyed teaching and learning with her! She knew how to sign words that she had not even learned in school yet it also helps improve spelling. Sign language is the 4th largest foreign language being taught in higher education and is becoming more popular in today's generation! I look forward to teaching you!

About Anthony
I have 12 years experience in teaching Japanese as a tutor. Occupation wise I am a Electrical Engineer Major, Entrepreneur, Author, Motivational Coach and Language Enthusiast. I am a firm believer that we really can do anything we put our minds too. My main focus and purpose is to HELP and add VALUE to as many lives as possible. I am solely interested in the progression and success of the student. It is my duty for me to teach you as much information on the Language in the most comprehensive way possible.

I'm originally from Long Island City, New York. I had a teacher of Japanese descent and she always brought her culture to the classroom. I was 10 years old, and I used to ask her questions about the way she would dress and her mannerisms and she would tell me anything I wanted to know. The culture is where it began for me, but the lang
uage is what took me on a whole different level of mentality and understanding.

I began learning the language at the age of 12 from a Japanese friend. At age 14 I learned from online courses and music, it was so intriguing to me that I began self study. At age 17 is when my listening skills began to kick in. I was understanding not only music but some Anime, this is when it really got fun lol. At age 20, is when I reached advance speaking proficiency and was able to understand LIVE dialoge from Natives. I am now 27. I am excited to teach and speak fluent japanese to you guys so you can hear it in it's native form.

So Anthony why should I choose you to be my teacher?

#1 I am literate in Japanese, I speak proper and perfect English so you will understand me lol.

#2 I will talk to you in a relatable way, so you will not feel like you're in a boring lecture, Japanese is an exciting language, so you do not need to feel like you're preached to.

#3 I will make this fun and interactive, keeping you engaged from beginning to end, wanting to know more. Most importantly I will give you as much information in the time given, so you can leave knowing your money is well spent.

#4 Lastly I can teach you formal and informal Japanese. I will give you all the key components to the Japanese Language without the fluff. In most language instruction there are key things to know mixed with fluff. This is what makes students lose interest or get confused. There will be no fluff in my class, everything that I teach you will be a key component to your language learning success.

So what are you waiting for ? Your success starts here !! Let's do this !! :)

About Leticia
Hey! I’m Leticia, from Spain. I’m a Spanish teacher and a psychologist who have been working on language process for more than 8 years! Learning a language is much more than obtain a skill, it’s a totally new world that opens for you!
I have experience teaching all ages for native English speakers and for Portuguese native speakers as well.
I’ve been teaching kids and adolescents for more than three years and it was an incredible experience.
I’m based in DC NW and class could be in meeting rooms in DC public libraries or online.
All courses are indivualy designe, that means that every single students will have a first interview with me to tell me what goals do they have and why Spanish is important for them. After this, the method will be created for helping us to achieve the target.
Spanish is an amazing language that will surprise yo
u for sure.

Letícia is the best teacher I found in the area by far.
I improved my Spanish skills a lot in a short period of time.

During my last business travel to Spain, I was able to negotiate and have conversations with locals, they understood everything that I was saying. That's something I couldn't do last year.

Totally recommended!
