As someone who needed to learn other languages, I can assist anyone whose native language is not English to become more proficient, improve their grammar, and gain better conversational skills.
One of my specialties is interview prep. I worked in IT, in marketing, and have an MBA, interviewed candidates and been interviewed myself - so I can share insights with my students.

Diane has a great French accent and shares her teaching skills effectively. I would highly recommend her for all levels. We have read books and seen movies in French. Her world view and experience adds a lot. Vraiment!

Diane is a great German teacher! She always provides additional resources to delve into the subtleties of a translation or specific grammatical constructions and uses a variety of different books/activities so that the exercises never get boring.

I learned Spanish in school and by living in a foreign country as an adult, so I have learned the importance of grammar but also of fluency in expressions and idioms. I will teach you important grammatical aspects necessary to the learning of a language, in a comprehensible way, because as a non-native speaker I understand how difficult learning a language can be. But, I also understand the importance of understanding cultural and societal expressions for fluency, so I will be able to incorporate natural expressions and cultural competency into a lesson.

Amanda is a fantastic teacher! She is professional, caring, understanding, patient and most of all full of ideas. She helped me to prepare for and pass the FCE exam. I also made huge progress with my speaking skills and fell in love with English to such an extent that I graduated from English philology and became English teacher myself. I can recommend Amanda to everybody.
Dawid
Amanda is a great teacher! During my lessons we've mostly talked (she could always come up with some interesting topics to chat about) and as a result now I have no problem with speaking at all - I don't feel intimidated or embarassed when I have to speak english, either face to face or in front of the audience. We've also did some exercises on not so well known parts of the language, for example proverbs. Interesting conversations, great attitude and professional knowledge of english, from a native speaker perspective is what makes learning with Amanda a really pleasant and enriching experience. Five out of five!

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.

"Her classes are absolutely wonderful. I'm learning Korean much faster than if I had stuck with self studying alone.Not only is she patient and honest about the mistakes I make but she also works at it until I get the pronunciation right. And believe me when I say that she's had her work cut out for her because I roll my r's and over-pronounce every syllable as, I'm sure, most Americans do. She is a wonderful teacher and really fun. She makes learning a language - which is more than a challenge - enjoyable."

"Mrs. Ghada E. is a well oriented and enthusiastic teacher. She gives clear verbal and written instructions to her students during class. Mrs. Ghada is very organized and knowledgeable in her subject area. She is an enthusiastic, very patient and humorous sometimes. Mrs. Ghada is a self motivated and a fast learner when it comes to learning new teaching strategies. She encourages me to go the extra step in learning by sending me her written feed back notes on my submitted assignments. I liked that she always response quickly to my email questions. Mrs. Elfarra can adjusts her teaching techniques to help students with different learning styles succeed in her class by varying her assignments and assessment methods like short written or spelling quiz...etc.. She is kind and understanding teacher and capable of handling difficult situations. Mrs. Ghada is a very helpful and kind teacher, I am very please to take her class."
