Andy embodies all that a good teacher should be. He mixes the art of emotional connection to the science. After 5 hours teaching sessions with Andy, and without having any prior knowledge on accounting, I felt confident in the fundamentals. He is excellent in helping someone thoroughly understand the subject matter. He is patient, flexible and highly professional and I would highly recommend Andy to anyone seeking a tutor.

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.

For native English speakers: I have studied English literature for several years and enjoy discussing it with students. I also took AP English in high school and scored quite highly.

Love how she teaches the mechanics of learning to sing properly such as breathing correctly and posture right from the start for a beginner. Fantastic instructor!
Tamura H.
Amazing singng instructor

Crystal has increased my daughter’s self-esteem and expressiveness through song. My daughter is now writing her own poetry and song lyrics, as well as being able to combat her once shyness quality. She loves to perform in front of others now and has a confidence level that amazes me, especially now that she is going into those “teen” years. I think a lot of thanks needs to go to Crystal, for assisting my daughter in reaching her current creative level!
Tamura H.
Great piano instructor

Crystal is an amazing piano instructor. She is patient, understanding and dedicated. My daughter has learned so much from her. My daughter’s love for music has increased immensely since learning how to play the piano. This would never have been able to be accomplished without Crystal’s professional and caring teaching style.

Great and knowledgeable classes, which passes very quickly! I never feel stress before or after the lesson as George is always very well prepared and positive!
Camila
Before I had this first lesson with George I knew he was very good (because of all the good reviews I read about him), but by the end of the lesson I was delighted: he is not only incredibly good, he is exceptional! You'll be very lucky to schedule a time with him and rely on his experience, intelligence and good humor to help you learn or master your English!

"I'm half-way through the (10) lessons I had signed up for, and I'm enjoying her teaching style. She is both structured and flexible, meaning that we are following a specific set of learning materials, but I can ask all kinds of questions and get additional information to take advantage of what I've learned already.

In the past I had started out with a local community college class, and that person had no clue on how to facilitate learning. I'm enjoying the sessions, though my brain is exhausted when we get to the end of our hour."

"I recently had my first lesson with Basmah and I think that she is an excellent teacher! Not only is she teaching me the basics of the Saudi dialect of Arabic but she is also teaching me aspects of Saudi culture that I never knew before. Her teaching style truly makes you want to learn more and more about the Arabic language and culture. I look forward to many more lessons with Basmah and I would recommend her to anyone who is serious about learning the Arabic language and culture."

"Oyamada Sensei is very good at finding a student's skill level and tailoring his instruction to improve the skills and challenge the limits of the student, which has quickly spurred me on to dramatic improvements in my Japanese ability after only 3 lessons. He also makes it fun by playing to the interests of the student and keeping the sessions light and full of humor. Highly recommended if you want to work hard, have fun, and learn Japanese!"

5 More Fantastic Korean Books for Language Students

Learning a new language is a rewarding and enriching experience. Unfortunately, for some, it can also be intimidating. The Korean language is full of complex sounds, grammar rules, and confusing sentence structures. For native English speakers, Korean can be hard to digest. With a qualified Korean teacher, and supplemental materials like Korean textbooks, however, a dedicated student can learn and master the Korean language. The right tools can help you get off to a great start when yo …
