Mr. G goes over and above to help me pursue my interests. He helped me sing through a difficult time while my voice was changing. He supports me at performances and never fails to make me laugh. Working with him has been a fantastic experience and I feel that I have grown so much.

I feel very lucky to have had Anna as my tutor at UCLA for Elementary Russian. Going into the program, I knew no Russian at all, and Anna helped me to feel comfortable asking questions. She explained grammatical concepts in a way that was easy to understand and her use of gestures with certain words really helped me remember vocabulary words and pronunciation. Anna also provided numerous resources for studying Russian outside of lessons and had wonderful recommendations for Russian YouTube videos. Thank you Anna!
Jorge
Anna was my tutor at UCLA for my first year of Russian. She used a variety of resources and authentic texts which made tutoring fun and different each time. She gave us exciting insights into culture while also practicing speaking and specific grammar exercises. I would definitely recommend her for first year learners! She's the best in town
Nihal
I had Anna as my Russian tutor at UCLA for just over a year, and visited her session for an hour every week. She is incredibly friendly and personable, and goes above and beyond to support her students. During tuition, she would help us both with keeping up with the course content and with exploring the language outside of it. Learning Russian can be daunting for students who have no cultural or linguistic background in it, but Anna's demeanor and approach helped me a lot with developing confidence and building on my strengths. Meeting weekly with Anna is one of the things that I will truly miss once out of the Russian department.

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).

Do you want to learn how to communicate with the Deaf? Are you intrigued by the use of sign language? Come learn with me. I am Deaf and I use American Sign Language. My brother is also Deaf, so we grew up using ASL together and at school. I have been teaching online for the past 5 years, and I love teaching others how to improve their communication skills in ASL. Sign language is one of the most expressive languages, have you seen an interpreter recently on the new? Have you noticed how fast they move their fingers, and make a variety of facial expressions. I can help you, no matter what level of ASL you know, I want to help you make progress and become fluent. I have a toddler and he is learning ASL, if he can, you can! See you in the classroom!

"I have attended 4 classes in Korean for Beginners and 1 Intro to Korean conversation class. Ms. Jihye L. has a easy style and natural ability for managing a group lesson of students at different levels. She is not overly formal, and when we are lost or confused, she is in no rush but helps us get through the topic at our own speed. She explains well the details regarding grammar, verb forms, and the levels of formality or politeness, as she writes the needed words on the whiteboard behind her. I think she understands that we will not and cannot learn something new in one shot, but only through patient trial and error."
