I can help you with conversation skills, correct pronunciation and proper grammar. I usually use a textbook called ‘Genki’ for my lessons. I provide the textbook so you don’t have to buy it. With ‘Genki’ we can work on various grammar points, vocabulary building, situational role playing, pronunciation, and plenty of exercises to improve your listening and speaking skills.

I try my best to keep the classes as relaxed as possible so that you can feel comfortable speaking and can learn at your own pace.

Miku is a great teacher to work with! I've been doing weekly lessons with Miku remotely since December of 2019 (now July 2020 as I'm writing this) starting from no experience.  I was worried about my ability to learn a new language since my only experience prior to this was learning Spanish in school years ago, but learning to read and speak Japanese with Miku's guidance has been the right level of challenging and fun.  Miku is a great communicator, flexible, really knowledgeable, adds nuance to the lessons we move through, and also really just fun to talk to and learn from.
Christopher
I was nervous about one on one tutoring, but honestly I can say with complete confidence that Miku makes me feel very comfortable during these lessons. She does a great job of mixing exercises with casual conversations to help you really understand how to use the language in real conversation. She is always very fun and flexible with the timing. Highly recommended!!
Dylan
Miku San has been my most valuable asset towards my journey of fluency in the years I’ve spent in pursuit of it. The more you meet with her the more you begin to appreciate her passion for teaching Japanese. Her lessons are both thoughtful and flexible . If I ever have questions on the context she will take the time to articulate an explanation regarding grammar or culture that I could never do on my own, or even with former tutors. Lessons with Miku San have the feeling of meeting with an old friend whilst providing genuine efforts towards your goals. I would recommend her to anyone.

I learned Spanish as a second language, as an adult. I immersed myself in Hispanic culture and in the language and gained fluency, to the point that my wife and I speak it at home and it is my children's first language.

This gives me an advantageous perspective, as I learned to understand the grammar and nearly completely rid myself of an accent. I will share my insights techniques with you.

I've been teaching Russian for 5 years. Within the first lessons, you'll know alphabet and how to greet people in Russian.
From lesson to lesson you'll increase vocabulary and after a few lessons your knowledge will be enough to read short stories. I use online workbooks, textbooks. I have a list of websites. They let students learn grammar, listen to dialogues, watch movies. I love working with students and can't wait to start this journey through Russian grammar and literature with you.

About Galina

I've been teaching American Sign Language for 5 years, and signing myself for 18 years, and my students have gone on to develop a love for ASL, Deaf people, and Deaf culture. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to carry on a simple conversation in the language, and as time goes on you'll be able to feel totally at ease with Deaf people. I have great online tools you can use for free to practice between lessons, and I'm flexible with any other resources we use. I can't wait to meet you!

About Carla

Guadalupe is a wonderful instructor. She has a natural flair for language and her personal experience of the mental processes involved in learning a language makes her a gifted and understanding teacher. She combines a knowledge of linguistic structures with a sympathetic approach and has a unique ability to correct while at the same time encouraging and giving confidence. I recommend her highly.

"First lesson with Mr Park was really good. I have never used an online tutor before so I didn’t know what to expect. He did very well in assessing my current level and pushing thru material. Even limited self study he still covered things that I didn’t know that was pertinent to the language and I appreciate the way he explains things. The language is not a 1-1 and Mr Park did well in explaining how it converts over."

"I have been taking lessons with Helen for a few months now--she is an exceptional teacher. She does a great job personalizing material, both focusing on my interests and honing in on the areas in which I struggle. Lessons are a blast because I always feel like I've learned something, and because Helen has a great attitude. I especially like her positivity and patience when I slip up. Lesson plans cater to various skill levels. I've been studying Russian for 10 years, and I feel like Helen quickly figured out where I am and how I can get to where I want to go. This has been my first experience with private, online tutoring; I really was nervous to try it out, but I am so glad that I did!"

I like that she gives me an assignment to make sure that I don't forget what I learn in between classes. In addition, she always challenges my abilities and pushes me to learn more in a fun way.
