Lorella is an excellent teacher. She’s so friendly, very patient and encouraging. I recommend to anyone looking for regular practice.
Katie
The first day I walked into Professor Lorella’s Spanish class I was so nervous, but she changed that feeling from that moment on. Professor Lorella is a caring, patient, and enthusiastic teacher! Every class was fun yet informative with many added creative exercises to help remember the lessons. She truly goes above and beyond to teach her students. Also, she is always easy to reach for extra help and questions outside of normal class hours. Professor Lorella made my 2 semesters of Spanish with her such an enjoyable experience! I highly recommend taking at least 1 class she teaches, I can guarantee you’ll want to take another one!
Maheshi
Lorella is an amazing professor. In just three semesters I was able to learn Spanish from her, although I had zero exposure to Spanish my entire life. She is a professor who truly cares about her students and makes learning a different language a truly fun and enjoyable experience!

Learn from a native Spanish speaker. I started working as a part-time evening job. Currently, I am looking to become a full-time tutor because I noticed students beneficial more in a one on one teaching style. I consider myself to be very flexible with my students' schedule and try my best to address their needs in my teaching style. I follow a Spanish immersion curriculum for kids and encourage a native-like use of the language to my student who already have advance knowledge of the subject.

About susan

I am specialized in Spanish. I worked in a dual immersion classroom in after school programs and taught AP Spanish in Pittsburg High. So, I am very comfortable in any kind of level of Spanish I employ interactive activities for my young students to learn Spanish while having fun. I am familiar wit

"Hello, I have worked at Kodaikanal International School in India for three years. KIS received the #1 school award by Educational World in India in 2013. It’s a co-ed residential school with beautiful surroundings on a high mountain. It was my honor to have my teaching history there with my terrific students and professional colleagues. I would like to share my recommendation from my principal here. You can find the original copy in my photos:

9 May 2012
To Whom It May Concern
It gives me great pleasure to write this recommendation on behalf of Youngju Lee. Youngju has taught Korean language and Arts at Kodaikanal International School since July 2009.

Kodaikanal International School is an international school located in Tamil nadu India in South India since 1901, making it one of the oldest schools in the country. It was originally a school for American missionaries. It has been an international school since 1974 and currently has a student body representing some 30 nationalities drawn primarily from within India but also in lesser numbers from various geographical regions that include countries located in Asia, Australia, Europe, and the Americas. KIS has also been a preferred choice of families of Indian origin settled abroad when they have wanted their children to have exposure to India and Indian culture because of its multicultural approach and the diversity of the staff and student body.

Youngju is an excellent teacher and I have enormous respect for her work in the classroom. She works well with students, is positive influence with the students and is able to encourage them to achieve their best. She uses a variety of approaches in her classes from group and individual work. She establishes a good relationship with her students, explains things carefully, prepares well and has a very effective yet relaxed delivery style. She has a positive rapport with her students and they demonstrate mutual respect and they enjoy learning. Students feel well supported in her class and enjoy her classes. She also cares for her students outside of the classroom and follows up on any concerns she or others may have of an individual.

Youngju has played an active role in extracurricular activities through her participation as chaperone on field trips, organizing events and student activities.

Youngju and her husband Stephen have settled well into the broader community in Kodaikanal and enjoy their life here with their family very much. In conclusion, I believe Youngju would make a good contribution to any school community. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information about Youngju Lee.
I recommend her wholeheartedly as an exceptional teacher and wish her well.
If more job specific information is required please contact me on principal@kis.in or on my mobile #----------.

"After several failed attempts to get my 5 yr daughter to speak Hindi, I looked to online classes for some help and signed up for a 5 lesson session with Prajakta.

Prajakta was always on time, and well-prepared with her lesson plan tailored to a 5 yr old. She also sent me coloring sheets and worksheets for writing practice so my daughter could stay interested and keep on practising. My daughter really enjoyed and looked forward to her classes.

These are serious lessons that include learning to read and write Hindi as well. The only note of caution I would offer to other parents is that I felt that it would have helped the pace of the lessons if my child had been slightly older and able to write better, since you do need to write down words and sentences in both Hindi and the English translation during the lesson.

All in all, I considered these sessions a good investment, because although she is still a long way from speaking comfortably in Hindi, the lessons served to kick-start her interest in learning the language. I am hoping we will be able to build on that foundation and encourage her to speak Hindi sentences more often."
