I really enjoyed my 1st meeting with Paul. He helped me to feel confident about learning to play the saxophone. I look forward to my next lesson.

Paul is so great! I'm an adult learning the alto saxophone with almost no prior music experience. He is patient with my many questions, very encouraging, highly skilled (as a musician and instructor), and fun to be around! The majority of our lessons are online and that is working well too.

As a native Japanese speaker, who has spent the last 30 years in the United States, I understand the structural and grammatical differences in the two languages. This gives me both the teacher’s and the student’s perspectives, which I find valuable as a language instructor.

I have taught Japanese to college students and adults, using beginning Japanese textbooks, and I am most comfortable teaching high school/college students and adults.
I can also teach conversational Japanese and/or customize the lesson to meet each student’s particular goals and needs.

Send me a message to find out if we are a good match!

I studied English and French at Vanderbilt university in the USA. My students have ranged from 5 to 60 years of age. I understand the challenges of learning a new language. I have also been able to learn what techniques help with pronunciation and as memory aids for those learning later in life. I have fun lessons which can help learners embrace their aspirations and navigate new places.
I am passionate about teaching and I hope we can work together soon.

As a fully qualified Chinese teacher I have been teaching Mandarin for 16 years in both China and the United States. I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of Mandarin skills.

For adult learners, speaking Chinese does not seem easy, but I can help you understand and master the tones of the Chinese phonetic alphabet in a short time. Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and, as time goes by, you'll be able to use Mandarin like a pro!

For young learners, we can start by recognizing the Chinese characters, or singing Chinese children's songs.

If you are an advanced Chinese learner, we can practise reading some Chinese articles and discuss the topics. I also specialize in Chinese writing so, if you need to improve your writing skills, I can help you.

I love working with students of all levels and look forward to seeing you soon.

Teacher Sophie is great. She has been a tutor for me (50+) English speaker learning Mandarin starting with absolutely no knowledge and my daughter (15) who started learning immersion Mandarin at age 4 and is already quite fluent.

From my standpoint Teacher Sophie has been a very diligent and patient tutor willing to spend a great deal of time with a student who needs regular repetition and practice. Given that my business travel requires regular visits to China, Teacher Sophie has focused on practical day to day Mandarin that has proven very helpful as I navigate Maritime business dealings throughout China.

For my daughter, Teacher Sophie has geared up her tutoring to include more intensive vocabulary and a refresher program. Given that my daughter is in a high school now that does not offer Mandarin, this type of refresher course is very valuable.

I strongly recommend Teacher Sophie as a Mandarin tutor at any level of instruction.

"Matias,

Seems to be very conscientious of his students. He knows how people learn a language. I like that he is a professional Spanish teacher and a native speaker. He has a very good demeanor but keeps the lesson going. So far I have thoroughly enjoyed my time learning Spanish with Matias and look forward to my next class."

Our conversations bring those gaps out, and we work on correcting them. Sabrina is Patient, funny, calm, and professional. She manages to make me feel good about where I am, how far I have come, and where I am going with this beautiful language. Bravissima!"

"Bonjour, I highly recommend Philippe as a professor for French learners at any level, but particularly for new learners. I felt that I made huge progress as he was able to identify the weaknesses in either my vocabulary, sentence structure, and grammar, and then explain and help me understand how to overcome those weaknesses. He accommodated my pace of learning, was always encouraging, and simply "got it" in terms of what I needed to stay motivated and moving forward. Working with him was a pleasure and you can be certain that a new French speaker will feel accompanied, fully supported, and will walk away having made great progress. Merci."

Ultimate Guide to Studying French Pronunciation Online

Ask any student their biggest struggle in learning French and you're guaranteed to hear one thing - pronunciation. Pronunciation is one of the hardest aspects of learning any foreign language. As babies, our minds are very receptive to learning how to identify and reproduce the numerous sounds contained in a language. This ability diminishes early in childhood, making it more challenging for second language learners to learn how to accurately pronounce sounds that are not present in t …
