My son is a BEGINNER beginner. Rodrigo is a very nice guy and seems to know his stuff very well. I would give him 5 stars but I don't think he realized that my son needed the basic, basic 1st lesson (i.e. how to hold the instrument). We've only attended one session so this is fully based on that one lesson. I'm sure he'll adjust his teaching from here on out.
Rosa Rodriguez
Mr. Rodrigo is a professional, respectful and super patient instructor. I could not made a better choice. I am looking forward to my next class @

Rodrigo is a great teacher, not only an expert musician, but he shares all his knowledge.

Hello! I'm a native Spanish speaker. I went to high school in Mexico. I tutor middle school and high school students whenever I'm in Mexico (I tutor English, writing and math). I am currently working as an assistant for an ESL teacher in Mexico.

I also worked as a teacher assistant and lead teacher in a daycare (children 6 weeks-12 years) in the US. In my experience, the best way to learn a new language is through practice and immersion. The same way children learn their language.

I like to make classes fun which help learn faster.

I've been teaching French for 6 years and my students have gone from total beginner to intermediate level. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to introduce yourself and speak about basic conversational subjects and as time goes on you'll be able to speak about many more specific topics. I can work with you on your written and oral understanding skills as well as written and oral producing. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Elsa is very engaging and has knowledge of how to teach French, not just knowledge of how to speak it. She is able to explain the rules, which is a big help to me as I try to make sense of it all.

"Amani is an amazing teacher! I have taken the Rosetta Stone Arabic course, but their scope with Arabic is limited to Modern Standard Arabic (MSA). Amani has helped to bring Arabic to life for me. Here is what I have discovered in the lessons I have taken so far:
- she is extremely patient
- she answers all of your questions
- she starts the lessons at your level (I am a beginner)
- she is willing to discuss any and all topics
- she is very knowledgeable in Arabic- Modern Standard Arabic or "MSA" (also known as "fus-ha" / formal Arabic) and a range of Colloquial Dialects.
(Remember that MSA is not a native tongue to any Arabic-speaking country. If your goal is to communicate with others, you will have to learn a dialect). I have asked for the translation to words in MSA and she has given me the versions in Syrian (a branch of "Levantine" Arabic which is also understood in Lebanon and Palestine ); Gulf Arabic (for those travelling to Dubai, Saudi Arabia, or Qatar); and she has also offered the translations in Egyptian Arabic which seems to be the most popular spoken dialect.
- she is also a lot of fun to talk to

So all that to say - I am looking forward to the next lesson!!! :-)

Learn Japanese Grammar: How to Use Japanese Adjectives

Verbs and nouns are vital to form a sentence, but if you want to add some color, you also need adjectives. Here, Ann Arbor, MI teacher Elaina R. shows you how to use Japanese adjectives... Adjectives are descriptive words. The stove is hot. The blue sky turned black. I am confused. We use tons of adjectives in our everyday speech. If you're learning Japanese, learning to use adjectives is a must. Luckily, using adjectives in Japanese is pretty darn easy. There are only tw …
