Anna is a fantastic Russian tutor! She is very friendly, incredibly kind, and knows everything from the nuances of Russian grammar to cultural topics.
Tyler
Very knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. It's abundantly clear that she has a plethora of experience with teaching the Russian language.
Kevin
Anna is a simply fantastic instructor of Russian. She has a plethora of resources at her disposal that she uses to great effect to help her students. We use a textbook in my class at the university, but Anna is able to supplement the textbook materials and explanations with her own materials. She is extremely patient and professional. I like that she really makes an effort to speak Russian all the time with students - even if we don't quite catch everything, it definitely helps to train our ears. She is extremely flexible and willing to work with students on whatever they think is the most pressing topic. Anna really revolutionized my own study of Russian and I am very grateful to her for all of her hard work.

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 and certified tutor of my native Persian/Farsi with 6 years of professional experience. I have 2 M.A. degrees in Creative Writing and Literature.

Depending on the student's need, you can expect a more customized work agenda in order to assist the student to reach the goal. We work together during the tutoring time and the student can expect to get some "homework" to maintain the lesson fresh. (Unless the student is getting help with an already existing class, then we follow the guideline of the class as our path to success)

About Cindy

Cindy is a native Spanish speaker and fluent English speaker. Additionally, she studied French for over 8 years. She is a driven Latina who loves her background and is excited to help others learn and embrace new cultures. She began tutoring 17 years ago (Spanish, French, Math and Science) whil

Cindy's extensive knowledge of Spanish was clear from the start. English is her second language but my children couldn't tell. She has an excellent way of breaking down Spanish for children and adults (I listened in and learned a couple of phrases).

"My 8 year daughter is taking one-on-one French lessons with Ms Aliaksandra. She has taken 3 lessons so far and loving it. I was invited to observe her last lesson and I am absolutely impressed with Ms Aliaksandra’s teaching. She speaks only French during the lesson, exposing my daughter to the language. She started with everyday things but is also using them in simple sentences. My daughter loves her lessons and can’t wait for the next one. She practice at home as well so she can make her teacher! We are glad to have found Ms Aliaksandra."

"I’ve taken Vietnamese classes with Mr. Chau for 2 months now. As a person just beginning to learn Vietnamese, I’ve seen vast improvement in my ability to speak and write in Vietnamese with Mr. Chau. Since Vietnamese is a tonal language, I’ve struggled at times with pronounciations of Vietnamese words. Mr. Chau’s methods work and my pronounciations have greatly improved. Highly recommended."

Introduction to French Grammar: How to Ask a Question

In French, like in English, you can often make a statement into a question just by raising your voice at the end. However, that's not the only way the French might pose a question, and as you learn French you're likely to come across many other variations. It's a good idea to get all the other forms of interrogative sentence under your belt as well. 1. Question words.
