Anna is fantastic. If you are deciding on a teacher your search is over! She is great!
Parker
It would be a truism to say that Anna is a great instructor, and she is. It is such a great experience to learn Russian with a native speaker, especially one who has seen so much. Her ability to explain the intricacies of the language in both English and Russian is invaluable. Her understanding of Russian grammar, combined with her ability to explain it in English creates a clear learning experience. I highly recommend her.

My tutoring approach:
My Persian/Farsi language classes are conducted at my home and on Skype, seven days a week. And there you'll find that my tutoring method makes it so much fun to learn the beautiful Persian language which is so pleasing to the ear. I use video / audio files and texts as well as I provide engaging homework.

About Farangis

I'm an enthusiastic tutor of my native Persian/Farsi with 5 years of professional experience. I also have 2 M.A. degrees in Writing and Literature.

I took Farangis' class for business purposes. She understands the science of learning in a way no other teacher had before. I speak Mandarin and Spanish and I speak from experience.
Farangis knows my strengths and weaknesses and has provided content accordingly. I feel I'm making progress every time I take her class. And she drills me on things she knows I struggle with. So, be prepared!
Nazanin N.
Farangis is a supportive, encouraging, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic tutor. I am working on a project that requires me to brush up on my Persian (Farsi) fluency, and she has been exactly what I need to elevate me to the next level. I wholeheartedly recommend her for your linguistic needs!

I have developed a proven, groundbreaking, unique, fun and interactive approach to reduce, and in some cases eliminate the foreign accent completely. How you ask? Being a singing teacher for over 15 years, I have always found it fascinating when my foreign students would be able to sing a standard American song with NO accent. Somehow, singing completely eliminated their accent. Since that discovery, I was determined to find out why and how. Based on my research, I have created a very easy to understand method that can dramatically reduce the foreign accent.

Coming from an immigrant family myself, and being fluent in three languages (English, Spanish, Italian), I can relate to the challenges foreigners face when attempting to speak in a neutralized American accent. This can be holding you back from advancing your career.

You will see results instantly. Take the first step to propel your career to the next level!

His lessons are very effective.

Gabriel is awesome! I had absolutely zero acting experience before him. He taught me the basics of acting as well as tips to get into the industry. I am now working on video reels and perfecting monologues. I highly recommend Gabriel for any experience level. I am now much more confident in my abilities and am very excited to continue learning from him.
Maria
Gabriel’s method is very effective. After 5 classes with him, I have started noticing changes in my way to differentiate sounds and pronounce them. I have taken classes with several accent reduction instructors and definitely Gabriel’s method is the most effective so far.

Having attended American school on the weekdays and a total-immersion Japanese school on the weekends (and coming home to parents who only spoke Japanese), I was lucky enough to grow up completely bi-lingual. With over a decade of experience teaching in private and classroom settings, I make my lessons fun, high-energy, and tailor-made to each individual. Please feel free to send me a message, and let's learn some Japanese! Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!

Laura was wonderful with my 5 year old girl, she was patient, energetic and her love for music showed through! My daughter has been very motivated to practice her songs to show "Ms Laura" next week. We look forward to working much more with Laura.
J D.
Amazing! Talented vocalist and pianist that communicates very well. Has great advice and wonderful personality. Great with kids.
Rafael Marinho
I met Laura at Harvard University when we were both doing our MFA degrees in acting. Since our program was not a Musical Theater one and I was not a singer, I started to take private lessons with her to compliment some of the training in singing we were getting there.

Laura is a fantastic singer and actor. She has an incredible ear as well as great knowledge and experience of what makes a singing performance pop. All this makes her an outstanding coach.

Even now after graduation, I am still training with her. Our focus now is on continuing the development of my singing voice. My goal is to reach a level where I have the skill and confidence to audition professionally for musicals, and I know I am in great hands.

"Thank you Gregorio, I finally had the experience of not being in the dark. You are shedding light on my singular path to learn Spanish. Your understanding of what I need to progress is very quick and intuitive. The way you explain grammar is so helpful, in a short time I was able to get past years of confusion from reading books and listening to videos!
One slight problem is that, While Takelessons.com is doing a fantastic job of using digital communication, There are still some technical issues that have made it difficult to learn how to connect. What seems to be missing is more tutorials for people like me to get familiar with social media.
Otherwise it was just what I needed! Thank you."
