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!!

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!!
Jason
I was a student of Marsha’s for several years, and I have never had such a qualified instructor! Incredibly bright, positive, flexible, and experienced. Genuinely enjoyed my time learning from her.

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.

My lessons are full of originality and are designed to match your level and meet your goals and range from beginning to advanced levels.
For beginning students, I focus on teaching grammar first and using that grammar to practice making short sentences. For the middle and advanced levels students, we will work together to strengthen your vocabulary, listening and reading skills. Also, students write composition homework every time, and we correct mistakes together in the next lesson. Advanced level students discuss one or two news articles or themes that you decide and the classes are held in Japanese only.
Get started learning Japanese today and improve your fluency and build confidence with a certified professional Japanese teacher.

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.

"Adriana teaches in a way that is practical. With her, it is all about using the language, which she balances well with traditional studying etc. Our sessions are largely centered around imagining scenarios and acting them out, making sure to use as much Spanish as possible. This pushes me to test my limits and helps me learn faster. Great teacher!"

"Julissa is a wonderful instructor!!!

She challenges and encourages. She blends both conversational and textbook instruction.

She is very patient when I am a bit frustrated and she is very flexible when schedule changes need to be made. I have extended my original series of classes due to my satisfaction with her teaching style and the results I am seeing.

I highly recommend Julissa as a Spanish tutor!!!"
