Akira K.

I will listen to you as carefully as possible to make the lesson meaningful. What are you interested in about Japan? History, travel, movie, music, anime, traditional entertainment, food or else? Think of learning not Japanese, but what you love through Japanese because what you love motivates you for learning the most.

One of my typical lesson styles is a situational dialogue. Let's have fun.

I teach at my place or a coffee shop if you would like to, or online.

Depending on the student's need, you can expect a more customized work agenda in order to assist the student to reach the goal. We work together during the tutoring time and the student can expect to get some "homework" to maintain the lesson fresh. (Unless the student is getting help with an already existing class, then we follow the guideline of the class as our path to success)

Cindy's extensive knowledge of Spanish was clear from the start. English is her second language but my children couldn't tell. She has an excellent way of breaking down Spanish for children and adults (I listened in and learned a couple of phrases).

I tried 4 different vocal coaches to fix my vocal cord problem. A combination of anxiety and lack of technical understanding led me to cause tears in my vocal cord without yelling or belting.

My job requires a lot of talking... also I love talking, so I was determined to solve this problem.

After seeing a speech therapist, a clinical laryngologist, and a reiki healing specialist, I found Michelle.

Michele is patient with her approach and helped me learn how to technically and mentally protect my vocal cords from harm.

She is very perceptive: even through video lessons she is able to give me specific exercises to fix problems as they arise, and they are not always the same problem.

I have recommended Michelle to my friends and family and look forward to gifting voice lessons for holidays and birthdays because of the immense value they have added to my life.
Irene
Michelle is great! I have been hesitant about doing online lessons, but she makes them feel natural. I can hear and feel the difference in my voice after only a few meetings, and I always look forward to the next.
Matt A.
Great first lesson. Very knowledgeable and focuses on fundamentals and making sure you understand the actual inner workings of your voice, throat, and diaphragm.

Sebastian is a wonderful teacher, expresses concepts in a manner that is easily understood. The lesson was extremely energetic and interesting. I am pretty much self-taught in Spanish, but will now learn the language properly. Loved the lesson!

I’m a graduate of the University of Southern California, with my MAT in TESOL, and a B.A. in Dramatic Arts/Entrepreneurship. I’m thankful to have been awarded USC’s Jack Nicholson Award for Outstanding Undergraduate Actor. I use my theatre arts background to teach reading strategies, pronunciation, vocabulary, effective academic writing, and speaking.

For pronunciation, I work to make your listeners understand you better, placing an emphasis on the proper intonation and stress patterns.

For writing, we'll practice opening essays with a hook, closing memorably, elaborating on points, choosing a powerful thesis, and writing under pressure.

"Ms Prajakta is a nice teacher. She taught my son Hindi from the basics. He is able to speak full sentences and name things in Hindi. One suggestion for Ms Prajakta is to talk to her students for 5 mins in her first class so that they get familiar with the teacher which will make them more comfortable. Not all kids are alike and for reserved kids to start talking to the teacher in the first class is bit challenging. Thanks for the time and effort."

He does a great job of adding humor to keep my nine year old son engaged in this new and not always easy language! I chose Wolfgang because German is his mother-tongue and he has extensive teaching experience with a range of ages. I have not been disappointed- he pays careful attention to cultivating accent, which is important and the best part of having a native speaker for a teacher."
