I started taking lessons from Jacqueline in person but have moved to online during the shutdown. I'm 66 and have taken some formal french courses but my conversational skills are lacking. It is often difficult finding a teacher that can be effective with someone in my age group. Jacqueline has been excellent at getting me to converse, improving my pronunciation, and working on my comprehension and grammar. We generally meet once a week but I would recommend more often.
Janis
Our family has found Jacqueline to be an awesome tutor for our high school daughter. Not only is she kind, thorough and patient, but Jacqueline always makes it a point to find out what the local high school teachers are teaching and what methods they're using. She has a very friendly and approachable manner and loves what she teaches.

Lesson and teacher were great! Although only an hour in duration, I feel I have learned a weeks worth of language.

Samuel is very patient; he has a great personality and well prepared for my kid's class. I'd highly recommend Samuel.
Emma
Sam is great with my 10 year old daughter. He is easy going and makes the flute lessons fun and my daughter enjoys her weekly hour lesson. We let Sam know what our goals were and he has created a plan accordingly.

Sam can do both in-home and online lessons. The in-home lessons are great, no need to travel.

Overall Sam is a great teach and very affordable.

Education: Rimsky Korsakov College in Saint Petersburg, Russia
I have been studying Russian language and Literature in College for four years. During the time of my studies, I always took an opportunity to get some professional experience: In 2014 I did
some charity work in Saint Petersburg Center for Foreigners, helping guest workers to learn Russian language, which I consider a valuable experience.

"Lesson went great! I really love that the lessons are personalized and that we can stop and try again with anything that comes more slowly to me personally, and that we can go faster with the things that I get more quickly. Today we learned the colors, the consonants, and the basic vowels as well as reviewing some basic Korean phrases from last week. Jihye is so nice and very pleasant. Thank you, Jihye!

Learn Japanese the Easy Way: 3 Study Tips for Beginners

While learning Japanese requires time and patience, you can boost your learning with these tips from teacher Willy M... I hate to break it to you, although it's not impossible to learn Japanese, it's also not necessarily easy. Japanese is a complicated language on many levels. First you need to learn how to converse, then you need to learn the specialized words. If you want to read in Japanese, then you need to learn Hiragana for indigenous words, Katakana for non-indigenous words, and …
