About Kelsea
I began teaching violin when I was in high school, and have taught various students in the years since. I also have extensive experience working as a nanny, and have worked with all ages, from infants to teenagers. In addition to having studied classical violin for 17 years, I am a songwriter and arranger, and perform my string arrangements with other songwriters in various venues around New York City. I have a bachelors degree in linguistics with a minor in music from International Christian University in Tokyo, where I researched the cognitive relationship between speech and music for my graduating thesis. I recently moved to Western Mass after finishing my master's degree in violin performance at Belmont University in Nashville.

**I do have a dog and a cat, so if you or your child has a pet allergy, lessons in my home will not be th
e right option for you.

Lipeng is very patient and encouraging for my beginner 11-year-old, using the video format well to demonstrate the songs and watch the student. She has been a good fit for a player who is motivated to improve but can complain a little bit about practicing everyday.

Very first lesson with Lipeng and I enjoyed it so very much. Lipeng encourages to listen to the music and then accentuate the notes to make it music, not to simply play them.

Valentina, is a wonderful teacher, She gets me used to hearing the language, since much of the fluidity of a new language revolves around the ear and hearing, and pronouncing the new words. She has given me a language course with background, and a grounding in grammar; and helps me with the words and idioms the I will use when I am in Italy. I am extremely happy with my lessons.

About Raquel
Hi!

I have been tutoring students since I was an undergrad back in Spain. While doing so, I realised there are very few better feelings besides the satisfaction of being a part of the improvement of your student's skills and knowledge.

I hold a Bachelor's degree in philology, so I have a deep knowledge on how languages construct themselves and work. Besides, I have a Master's degree in Literary Studies and am currently a PhD student in Literary Studies. But most importantly, I was born in Madrid (Spain) and lived there for over twenty years, so you'll get to learn Spanish and its culture from a truly Madrilenian!

My tutoring approach is based mostly on theory and practice, with a lot of perseverance! I usually like to teach some aspect of the language and then make the student approach it in a practical way. Lessons can be tailor
ed to meet the student's specific needs, though! Each student is different from the rest, and therefore learns in an individual way and at an individual pace. Personal tutoring will always be provided to ensure you're always getting what you need: grammar, vocabulary, fluency, accent...

Raquel is a very meticulous and gifted teacher. She was well prepared from the very first lesson and she always made sure her explanations were clear before moving on. She helped dispel many doubts I carried along in my mind for a long time in Spanish grammar. The classes are fun, friendly, and are aimed at the serious-minded student. Highly recommended.

Born in Spain I have lived in 8 different countries in Europe and America.
I live to compare and enrich my culture and share the knowledge with the world.

Beside comparing Romance languages to one another for better understanding and deeper learning we will be comparing between the different kind of Spanish on the globe.
So we will not only learn Castilian but a wider ranger of South American expression and idioms so we can be fully understood where ever we go!

I studied the English language systematically. So if you are learning the language to more than just talk to English speaking people, if you need it for your academic study or to communicate effectively in the corporate world, you are in good hands.

I hold degrees in linguistics and computer engineering as well as a certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) from American universities and I look forward to improving your English language skills in short order.

About Anna (Carlini)
I was born in Italy and came to the U.S. with my family. I was educated in the U.S. and returned to Italy to live and work for the U.S. Navy. There I met and married my husband. We returned to the U.S. and had two beautiful children. I have been teaching Italian in the Lake Tahoe area for nine years now, and have every intention of continuing to do so on a different platform then a standard classroom. I find that students learn faster and better when they are in their own setting and comfortable.

My goal is to make certain each student from beginner to advanced walks away knowing Italian more then when he/she started, and are happy with me and with the results.
I want to make sure that each student feels comfortable in conversing in Italian, and that he/she truly believes that learning Italian is possible.
I provide lessons fr
om beginner to advanced to all that wish to learn or improve their Italian. Each lesson is based on each student's knowledge base and the goal that they wish to achieve. Knowledge in any given subject is like gold.

Cancelling or rescheduling your class: If you need to cancel or reschedule a lesson it is possible, but I would require 24 hrs. notice prior to your scheduled lesson time.

Anna is a fantastic instructor! Lessons included grammatical break downs, vocabulary, current and historical Italian events, and more. The classes were informative, adaptive to the students needs, and fun. It was always a pleasantly interactive setting where I was speaking with a good friend, and it just happened to be in Italian.

Anna is an enthusiastic and hardworking teacher who always sought to personalize her instruction, based not only on my level but on special topics of interest that I wanted to explore. Our sessions together were always fun and productive. I believe that listening to and speaking with a native born teacher is essential!

Anna is excellent whether you are a beginner or advanced Italian speaker! She knows just how to pace the class, and always modified it so that it was perfectly fit for me. She was so patient!! I never felt uncomfortable or rushed to learn, and she always seemed to have so many different ways to teach me the language; whether it was sentence structure, verb conjugation, new work pronunciation - it didn't matter, she was so creative with so many different ways to learn it all.
