I grew up in South Korea half of my life and I talk in Korean with my family and my Korean friends all the time. Learning a new language is very difficult, however, with my help, I can definitely get someone to a point where they can understand Korean without stressing out. I have been volunteering as a Korean language teacher in church for 4 years before moving to Los Angeles.

Chan is very knowledgeable and kind. He has patience and keen to observe what I need to learn. He gave my homework to improve my weaknesses which are embouchure and breathing. I am glad to learn from him.

I am a native speaker of the Italian language, I have helped many people achieve the level of Italian they wanted to reach. Whether you just want to learn how to carry a conversation or learn Italian literature and culture in depth, I can get you there. Being born and raised there I can also make sure you do not learn any false or inaccurate notions as I have seen many people learn that had studied from books or American teachers (I hate to sound arrogant but I speak out of experience). I can also teach Sicilian dialect and literature should you be interested in that.

About Andrea

I have been teaching professionally for the past 15 years and love it. Academically, I hold two degrees (production & performance) cum laude at the prestigious Berklee College Of Music in Massachusetts and have ever since worked as a guitarist, bassist and producer. I was fortunate enough to work

Taking lesson with Andrea, from my place in Italy. A pianist I know gave me its contact here at Takelessons. It is great to be able to take lesson across the ocean, since he is a great teacher and I took the chance!
Valerie
Excellent instructor, great professional attitude and etiquette. Very prepared with digital handouts and lessons.
Chi Zhang
I have been taking lessons with Andrea for the past year, and I have found him to be a patient, friendly, inspiring teacher. I've found my guitar playing has greatly improved through his tuition. Unlike other guitar teachers, Andrea tailors each lesson according to what I'd like to achieve. He always quickly corrected mistakes in my technique, provided me with useful tips and chords that I'd love to learn and play. His lessons are full of fun and I couldn't recommend him more highly!!

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.

About Akira

The first day I walked into Professor Lorella’s Spanish class I was so nervous, but she changed that feeling from that moment on. Professor Lorella is a caring, patient, and enthusiastic teacher! Every class was fun yet informative with many added creative exercises to help remember the lessons. She truly goes above and beyond to teach her students. Also, she is always easy to reach for extra help and questions outside of normal class hours. Professor Lorella made my 2 semesters of Spanish with her such an enjoyable experience! I highly recommend taking at least 1 class she teaches, I can guarantee you’ll want to take another one!
Maheshi
Lorella is an amazing professor. In just three semesters I was able to learn Spanish from her, although I had zero exposure to Spanish my entire life. She is a professor who truly cares about her students and makes learning a different language a truly fun and enjoyable experience!
Anisha
Lorella is an outstanding professor! I had the opportunity to take Spanish courses taught by her and that was by far the best experience I have had learning a foreign language. She is not only extremely knowledgeable in regards to the language and culture, she is also extremely personable, kind and truly dedicated to the success and understanding of her students. I highly recommend taking lessons from her.

Ms Teresa is awesome! She has taught my daughter how to play both Piano and guitar. I love that she actually teaches the music and explains things not just how to play the song!
Michael
I started trying to teach myself piano until I met Ms. Arth. On the very FIRST lesson she pointed out some bad habits and quickly resolved them. This allowed me to reevaluate my technique and iron out the basics. I plan on continuing my studies with Ms.Arth and I highly recommend her for any student beginner or advanced. Totally 💯 satisfied!!!!

Teresa has been amazing helping Lily learning piano. Her self esteem has grown so much. I love that the students learn multiple instruments.

Bonjour!
Je m'appelle Sophie. I am excited to teach you French using comprehensible input (CI). Comprehensible input means that I will make French understandable to you using French! The idea is to emulate how you learned your first language~ with repetition of structures and vocabulary used in different ways. From day one, you will begin to generalize how the language works. Each subsequent lesson will build on previous lessons so generalized concepts keep getting stronger while you learn new things.

In a typical lesson, I will start by explaining the meaning of each structure and defining all of the vocabulary for the lesson. These new concepts will be woven into a story that we will read, practice, and personalize. If you already are in a language program and need tutoring, or have specific things you want to work on, I will be happy to assist you there.

About me~ I grew up speaking French as my parents made their way to California when I was little. I don't remember learning

About Sophie

Bonjour! Come explore the French language with me! I am excited to teach you in a natural, proven, fun technique using Comprehensible Input. My French parents immigrated to the US when i was little, so I grew up immersed in a French home. I studied French through high school and college and years

"Prajakta is a very experienced and dedicated teacher. She caters her lesson plans based on my son's knowledge but also on our need, which consists of improving his speaking ability and expand his vocabulary. My son has made good progress in that respect and we are very grateful for it. He looks forward to his Hindi class. Prajakta is always prepared for class and very reliable. She is also flexible in terms of accommodating my son's busy schedule. A wonderful experience overall."

"My girls (8 and 11 years old) really enjoyed their lessons with Simona. She was able to structure the lessons to meet their individual needs and interests. One of my favorite moments was coming home from work to see yellow post it notes on many household appliances and furniture as she had the girls go label these items in Italian as a fun little "quiz". Simona was the perfect solution to introducing my girls to the language of their relatives. We'll be back once our schedule allows."

"Wolfgang is a wonderful, tutor, teacher and mentor. For quite awhile I have wanted to learn to speak German. Wolfgang has and continues to guide me toward my goal.

Wolfgang is very patient, flexible and understanding. He has adapted his lessons to best fit my way of learning. This is no simple task in itself. But Wolfgang has found a method of teaching that goes well beyond words and phrases. It strengthens my understanding of the culture. This is critical to successfully comprehending any language.

Wolfgang is a true Linguist. His expertise is far-reaching, not just in syntax or morphology, but in the history from which the language is born. This knowledge is indispensable and cannot be found elsewhere."

"I have studied French for more than a year and I have completed a second series of lessons with Isabelle in which we focused on pronunciation. I think that having a teacher, especially a native speaker like Isabelle, to help with the pronunciation is essential when learning French. She answered all of my grammar questions as well and she taught me a lot about France and French culture. I found all the lessons very enjoyable and informative."

When You Translate French to English Watch Out for These 3 Things

French is one of the most beautiful of the romance languages. Spoken as the official language in 29 countries, French is the second most widely spoken mother tongue in the European Union. Learning to speak and understand any language is a process of immersion. To truly understand and be able to translate French to English  means understanding French culture and the idiosyncrasies of the language. One highly effective method for truly understanding a language beyond simply speaking it …
