About Claire
I hold an MFA in Acting from the California Institute of the Arts and have been teaching professionally for over ten years. I teach Acting and Auditiong to young actors (10-18 years) and I also teach Public Speaking, Voice/Speech and Accent Reduction to those looking to find more ease and power when using their voice in front of others. I have taught, directed and coached young actors who have gone on to work professionally in Film, TV and Theater and my students have been accepted to renowned conservatories and universities across the country (NYU Tisch, California Institute of the Arts, AMDA and others). I am a passionate teacher who believes in the individual and in unlocking the creative genius, the impulses, the imagination and the unique forms of expression within each of my students. In my sessions, I encourage my students to
“play” and to discover how to both lean in and tap in to what is there and then develop relaxation, ease and focus on the task at hand - a monologue, an audition, a speech or working with a text. In addition to teaching and coaching actors, I have worked extensively in the corporate worlds in areas of Voice, Speech and Presentation as a coach and have taught group classes on Public Speaking and Presentation. I have taught and coached students from China, Russia, Taiwan, Italy, Japan in addition to the U.S. Throughout the ten plus years that I have been teaching, I have helped both actors and non-actors, those in the professional business world, gain tools that lead to freedom and ease of expression when speaking in front of others, be it at an audition, an interview, giving a presentation to a board or speaking in front of thousands at a Ted Talk.

Claire is a professional. She is a natural born teacher who immediately clicked with my son. She gave him the tools he needed for an upcoming audition at a theatre conservatory. Anyone from beginner to dedicated professional would benefit from private lessons with her. We feel very lucky we found her with so many less qualified people out there.

About Chau
I taught Vietnamese language and culture to foreigners, English and Vietnamese to Vietnamese adults and students in Vietnam for 30 years before arriving in the United States in 2008. Then, I continued to instruct Vietnamese language and culture to Americans in Virginia and Washington DC.
I got an Associate degree in Pedagogy in Vietnam in 1977. I also was trained how to instruct U.S diplomats at Foreign Service Institute (FSI) and officers from Defense Language Institute (DLI). I have had enough calm and patience to deal with hard teaching conditions.

I received awards from The Department of State (FSI) and School of Language Studies (FSI) in 2014 and 2015.

About Galina
My name is Galina. I am a native speaker of Russian language and a professional teacher. I have 20 years experience of teaching in Russian Schools. First 10 years of my experience was teaching in Elementary School, and next 10 years I was an English and Russian teacher. I hold a bachelor's degree in linguistics and childhood education. I was teaching English as a foreign language to Russian students and have excellent tutoring experience in teaching Russian to English speaking people. I can teach all levels of the Russian language and I am really excited to teach students of any age. I have been a teacher all my life and I simply love teaching, because during the process I can see how my students move forward. Tutoring gives me the opportunity to continue doing what I always loved to do. I am a dedicated tutor-strict, but kind. I teach a

Galina is an excellent instructor and also a lot of fun! I've really enjoyed my lessons and always leave with a lot more confidence in my progress in Russian. She really tailors the lessons to my skills and has been flexible as to what we study throughout each session. I highly recommend her as a teacher. We always have a great time and cover so much ground!

About Allyssa
I've been speaking Spanish for a little over 14 years. In my lessons I mostly teach conversational Spanish and English. By the end of this course, you will be conversational! You'll be able to understand others, speak, and most importantly you will be understood when you speak.

I look forward to meeting you! No learner is too young/ old to start learning a foreign language. Start your lessons today!

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Llevo poco más de 14 años hablando español. En mis clases, principalmente enseño ingles y español conversacional. Si tomas lecciones conmigo, te daré el enfoque simple que la mayoría de los instructores no pueden. Al final de este curso, ¡serás conversador! Podrá comprender a los demás, hablar y, lo que es más impor
tante, lo entenderán cuando hable.

¡Espero conocerte! Ningún alumno es demasiado joven / viejo para comenzar a aprender un idioma extranjero. ¡Comience sus lecciones hoy!

I used to dance back in Russia for a couple years but I forgot everything since then. I’m glad I found Anna who speaks not only my language but also Russian. Just for a couple classes I refreshed my abilities and decided to go further with Anna and this is my favorite thing to do on earth for now.
