From the start, Michelle has been so helpful and easy to work with! She is super friendly and wants the best for you, and is quick to understand how to best work with you so that you get the most from your lessons. She has a beautiful voice and is excellent at communicating how to best adjust your own voice to sing better and stronger. She also is very flexible with schedule, which has been so helpful! Thank you for your help, Michelle!

My Persian/Farsi language classes are conducted at my home and on Skype, seven days a week. And there you'll find that my tutoring method makes it so much fun to learn the beautiful Persian language which is so pleasing to the ear. I use video / audio files and texts as well as I provide engaging homework.

I took Farangis' class for business purposes. She understands the science of learning in a way no other teacher had before. I speak Mandarin and Spanish and I speak from experience.
Farangis knows my strengths and weaknesses and has provided content accordingly. I feel I'm making progress every time I take her class. And she drills me on things she knows I struggle with. So, be prepared!

Farangis is a supportive, encouraging, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic tutor. I am working on a project that requires me to brush up on my Persian (Farsi) fluency, and she has been exactly what I need to elevate me to the next level. I wholeheartedly recommend her for your linguistic needs!

As an ESL student myself, I understand the struggles that English language can provide. That is why I try to help all of my ESL friends to improve their english, as I was once helped. I love languages because learning and mustering a new languages opens a new world of possibilities and broadens one's horizons.

After spending the last two years in Colombia, teaching in 2 unique communities and living with local families, I have gained an Advanced level of coloquial Spanish that I will share with you. I will use a mix of grammar, basic conversational Spanish, and stories about Colombian culture in an encouraging and non-judgmental way and, of course, we will go at your pace. Be aware that I am not afraid to make ridiculous faces when helping you with your pronunciation, my goal is that you learn!

If you are coming in with some knowledge - great! We can talk about different topics to help you practice your verb conjugations and expand your vocabulary.

I'm looking forward to sharing this beautiful language with you and, as always, "a la orden"!

I believe that students should be given an opportunity to be shown how to practice. This is so that when the instructor is not there to guide, the student is able to know step-by-step of what they are supposed to do.

She is currently pursuing an Undergraduate Degree in Music Education(Instrumental) at Rowan University with the mindset of having a performance and education masters. She has recently awarded Teacher of the Month for July 2019 on Lessonface

Vivian was very helpful! She easily guided me through the initial lesson beginning with basic tuning, hand and finger position, posture and we were playing some basic music by the end of even that first lesson.

"I would highly recommend Zach! He is patient, supportive, and knowledgeable. He truly wants you to learn, while always keeping class fun. Zach will repeat pronunciations as needed until you have complete understanding. Not only does he teach the French language, but also French culture. Zach is encouraging yet provides a challenge for you to reach your goals for learning. He's always organized, on time, and shows interest in your progress. I have been learning with Zach for months and will continue taking his classes."

French Grammar Rules: Distinguishing Between Imparfait and Passé Composé

French grammar guru Carol Beth L. is back on the blog with this guide to the passé composé, the imparfait, and when you should use each of them... If you've been studying French grammar long enough, you may know that French has two different forms of the past tense: the passé composé (composed past) and the imparfait (imperfect). It is sometimes difficult for those who have just learned them to distinguish between situations that require the passé composé and situations that wa …
