As far as my teaching experience goes, I have previously tutored English and Italian for young students ranging in age from elementary school to young adults. I teach in person and online as well.

ises. I’m very open minded and according to your preference I can organize the best lessons for you.
Have a nice day!
Buona giornata!

I've been working with Graciela over the past 8 months to improve my Spanish grammar and conversational skills. Graciela is excellent at tailoring her teaching style to my evolving skills, and she's great at making sure I have the resources to practice on my own. For someone like me, who has low-intermediate speaking and comprehension skills, it's extremely valuable to have an instructor who conducts sessions almost entirely in Spanish (with only very occasional transitions to English to aid in my understanding of subtle points). Graciela's fluency in both languages makes her an ideal tutor for both beginning and advanced students. I'd absolutely recommend her.

About Abby
IMPORTANT NOTICE: ** Because my private lessons are sporadically scheduled between other teaching, and I have found students over age 12 to need in depth lessons, the minimum time for them per session is ONE HOUR. ******

Due to my maternal grandfather's career as a Chicago vaudeville orchestra leader, from early childhood, the performing arts have been in my blood. Starting to study classical flute at age 12, then playing in the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestras and taking professional jazz/classical flute workshops/master classes, I've been teaching and playing all styles of flute music professionally since my 20's.

Vocal study began at age 15 with some great artists/educators in SF, Seattle, and Europe, including Bobby McFerrin, Mark Murphy, Broadway singer Adrian West, David Tigner- SF Opera, Davida Kagan-Seattle Opera, and Rol
and Wyatt-
Manhattan Transfer coach /NY Academy of Dramatic Arts. Through many years of teaching experience, I've developed a very successful, uniquely simple 8 part method to help cross cultural individuals/groups of all ages , styles, and levels, sing optimally from their hearts. The necessary basic vocal techniques can be taught effectively in 4 to 8 lessons, though the learning process takes longer and can continue throughout one's lifetime.

With a BA in Theater Arts from SFSU, and over 50 years directing, acting, and musical experience, including the last 15 years also working successfully as an ESL educator, I have gained the confidence to help almost any student achieve their personal and/or professional goals.

I teach Italian language to speak with confident and clarity. I'm specialized in teaching grammar and I push my students to speak Italian as much as possible during the lessons in a friendly atmosphere. This is a great way to improve or learn Italian in a reasonable time frame.

About Whitney
Hello! My name is Whitney and I'm a fulltime English teacher from California. I have been teaching English for over 11 years and I have a Master's degree in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).

I have taught many different subjects, including speaking, pronunciation, grammar, business English, academic writing, and more. I've also taught beginners through very advanced English learners, as well as a range of ages, from kids to adults (although mostly teenagers and adults).

In addition to teaching, I'm also a professional writer, creating content for several websites and digital marketing agencies. I love writing and I love helping students improve their writing, too.

I have been fortunate enough to travel extensively and live abroad. From 2013 to 2015 I taught English at a university in Korea, which was a won
derful experience. I've traveled to almost 20 countries, and I spent most of 2016 in Southeast Asia and Europe. Having lived in other countries, I understand the struggles associated with communicating in a foreign language.

As a teacher, I am friendly, patient, and kind (and funny, I hope!), but I also care very much about my students' learning and I create lessons that are challenging but interesting, fun, and connected to the students' real lives and/or their specific goals. I also encourage students to talk as much as possible!

I look forward to meeting you!
Whitney
