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

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

First of all, I teach my lesson at a coffee shop or my studio for being in person, or a remote lesson online is available. I was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan living in Toluca Lake LA, graduated from the literature department of Waseda University in Tokyo Japan. I realize learning another lan

Lorella is an amazing teacher. I learned Spanish very fast with her and I was enjoying! She’s so smart, patient, friendly and flexible too! I highly recommend her!!
Rime
Lorella is an excellent teacher. She’s so friendly, very patient and encouraging. I recommend to anyone looking for regular practice.
Katie
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!

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

"My reading comprehension on par with where we are on lessons, but my struggle is listening comprehension. I am listening and repeating playback of workbook audio files over and over trying to get it. They speak so fast for beginner like me. Jihye not only helped me with this on her own time, but on our next lesson she made a change. We did the textbook lesson as planned but she reserved a small portion of our time to dictating workbook narrative at a pace I could keep up with. Noted difference on the first go. I am grateful and know I will only get better!! Thank you."

35 Spanish Slang Words and Phrases You Should Know

Want to add some Spanish slang to your vocabulary? Every country has its own unique usage of slang, and each generation invents new slang words. So if you're learning Spanish “by the book,” you may find it difficult when you try to communicate with native speakers in casual settings. Just like you learned your native tongue, native Spanish speakers learned formal Spanish in school and the more conversational aspects of the language outside of the classroom. Here, we'll discuss c …
