As someone who needed to learn other languages, I can assist anyone whose native language is not English to become more proficient, or gain better conversational skills. My specialty is interview prep. I worked in IT, in marketing, have an MBA, interviewed candidates and been interviewed myself - so I can share insights with my students.

Diane has a great French accent and shares her teaching skills effectively. I would highly recommend her for all levels. We have read books and seen movies in French. Her world view and experience adds a lot. Vraiment!

Diane is a great German teacher! She always provides additional resources to delve into the subtleties of a translation or specific grammatical constructions and uses a variety of different books/activities so that the exercises never get boring.
Don H.
Once again, Diane has proven an exceptionally effective French instructor. She is conversant in American idioms and offers the French equivalents with ease. I am in awe of her ability to motivate and instruct.

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.

I learned Spanish in school and by living in a foreign country as an adult, so I have learned the importance of grammar but also of fluency in expressions and idioms. I will teach you important grammatical aspects necessary to the learning of a language, in a comprehensible way, because as a non-native speaker I understand how difficult learning a language can be. But, I also understand the importance of understanding cultural and societal expressions for fluency, so I will be able to incorporate natural expressions and cultural competency into a lesson.

I am a Spanish teacher who studied Spanish in high school and university in the US; I also studied Spanish during a high school year abroad in Paraguay, and a university semester abroad in Santiago, Chile.

I am fluent in Arabic. I came up with a way to teach Arabic for children combining everyday language with the classic Arabic that most children find difficult. I am familiar with the different Arabic regions dialects and can determine how to start the learning process depending on the students interests and their needs to learn this language. Children will also learn how to speak, read and write . Our sessions will depend on conversations more than boring grammar rules that most children don't like. In addition, the student will learn about the culture of the different regions. I traveled and lived in several countries and very familiar with the traditions and the heritage. Sessions will be personalized depending on each individual's interest.
I can also teach the different Arabic dialects and I can teach the Middle Eastern cuisine. The Arabic culture is very rich and my online sessions will be a one of a kind experience.
