I have tutored and taught English to English Language Learners and English as a Second Language students for ten years. I worked one on one with Mandarin, Hispanic, and Arabic students and families. I visited a number of universities and K-12 age groups while in China, teaching and tutoring at English Corners and study groups.

Often times I find that teaching English to internationals as well as English speaking students builds long lasting friendships and bonds between those who may have had former cultural and language barriers. I still keep in touch with the families and students that I tutored. Helping those who are looking for English tutoring and help is such a joy and pleasure to partake in. If you are wanting to pursue and refine your reading, writing, speaking and communication skills, you have found the right person to help you on your journey of learning! :)

Great teacher I have two granddaughters that wanted to learn to play our family piano. Ashley has been great keeping these two (5yr old and 9yr old) interested and enjoying what they are learning. Could not have had a better experience or teacher. Having Ashley as a teacher has made all of us enjoy music in our home again!!

Marsha is a wonderful music teacher! She has an organized lesson plan, she's always willing to set aside the lesson plan if I want to do something different that day, she gives very gentle feedback, and I always have so much fun with her during lessons. I highly recommend!

I have been taking lessons with Marsha for several months. Marsha has been helping me immensely to become a better singer. I am a novice vocalist and Marsha has worked with me patiently. I feel as if I have been progressing nicely with my vocal training.
Beth
I worked with Marsha for about 10 weeks. Singing was something on my "bucket list" and I wanted to find out why I didn't know how to do it. I learned a ton from Marsha, and I also learned that I wasn't a hopeless case!!

Firstly, I speak standard Mandarin Chinese from North Eastern China, which is the same kind of pronunciation found in professional teaching material and stipulated by the People Republic of China. Secondly, I have over ten years experience teaching second language to students of all ages and proficiency levels, which includes preparing students to take the HSK. Thirdly, I earned a bachelors degree and teaching certificate in teaching English, which has given me the pedological and speaking skills to explain Chinese grammar and culture to beginning level Chinese speakers.

For non-native English speakers: For 10 years, I have taught English to students from Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Brazil, Spain, France, Germany, Korea, China, Japan, and more. I can help with accent reduction, improve the student's pronunciation, and better their grammar.

"I have spent a couple years trying to tackle Hindi. A language that I thought was “impossible” to learn if it wasn’t your native tongue.
However, 13 classes with Prajakta and I’m starting to do more than just grasp the language. I have never had such a good experience with a class. She makes things easy to understand, really helps you gain the confidence to speak another language. I will continue to go to Prajakta as long as she will let me. I have gained more confidence to speak to my future in-laws in Hindi as well as watch more movies with less subtitles.

If this is a language you are looking to learn, she is somebody you should let teach you. Because you will make strides in no time."
