Anna is fantastic. If you are deciding on a teacher your search is over! She is great!
Parker
It would be a truism to say that Anna is a great instructor, and she is. It is such a great experience to learn Russian with a native speaker, especially one who has seen so much. Her ability to explain the intricacies of the language in both English and Russian is invaluable. Her understanding of Russian grammar, combined with her ability to explain it in English creates a clear learning experience. I highly recommend her.

It's been a great experience to have lessons online. Although it lasted 45 minutes, I have seen that these types of lessons are very useful and practical. Thank you for providing these lessons!

Michelle is so patient and kind. She gives me help with my accent and the way I pronounce the words so that I sound more like a native speaker. I love her. She is so much fun. I'd recommend her to anybody.

I'm an experienced Italian teacher - I was born and raised in Italy and I graduated from the University "La Sapienza" in Rome with a Master Degree in Italian Literature and History. I've been teaching Italian and Italian history for the past 10 years of my career. Both in Colleges here in the U.S.A. and online.
I offer a very proficient method of learning. Part of the lesson would be focused on the grammar and writing, part of the lesson would consist in one to one conversation. Depending on the level of my students, we would develop the vocabulary on a daily basis and I can guarantee my students will be able to have a conversation in Italian within just a few lessons!

About Mya

I'm an experienced Italian teacher, music composer and violinist - I was born and raised in Italy and I graduated from the Italian Conservatory "G. Verdi" with a violin and music composition and music technology diploma - then a Master Degree in Italian Literature and History. I've been teaching It

I started taking Italian lessons from Mya a year ago, and after finding out she's also a music teacher I decided to give it a try, Best decision ever! Not only Mya is the best Italian teacher I've had (she's very detailed oriented and helps me tremendously with my pronunciation) but she's also an experienced and skilled music teacher. After only a few classes, I was able to play decent music with my violin!

Mya is by far the most professional teacher I've had in years. She has been helping me improving my music skills with a very friendly approach, she is so patient and understanding I could not ask for a better teacher!

Amazing instructor, Mya is so knowledgeable and competent, I couldn't ask for a better teacher.

Learning a new language is uneasy and it definitely takes time but it is also definitely possible. I have had opportunities to work with a lot of students who have different learning purposes and all of them have put a lot of work and I believe their Vietnamese families and friends do appreciate their efforts and being able to communicate in Vietnamese is helping them get closer to each other. I am here to work with you on that journey. Thank you for being interested in our language, our country, our people and our culture :)

Xin chào! My name is Trang. I build up lessons based on what you want to learn instead of what I want to teach so that we can help you reach your goal as soon as possible. I am from the North so if you want to study the Southern accent, I am afraid that I can not help you speak with 100% accent of

I’m so glad that I chose Trang as my tutor. Her lessons are planned out and organized. I’ve learned more with her in the last month than I did trying on my own for a year. My family speaks with a southern accent and she has adjusted to that to help me. I am very happy with my lessons.
Tracey L.
Once again a great session with Trang. I had a family emergency and was unable to study my homework lesson but Trang picked up without a hitch and continued teaching as if I had been studying the entire time. She's great and I look forward to the next class.
Thanks Trang
Leandro
Trang has been incredible. My vietnamese was basically limited to food :-) but after one month of classes I started to understand pieces of conversations between my partner and in-laws. She has a really good pace, breaking down words and sounds that are new to me, keeping a very practical approach. I walked out first class being able to say a handful amount of words, surprising my viet friends! I strongly recommend Trang to anyone with little to none
vietnamese experience; and she will make sure it's time well invested.

He quickly gauged my skill level and adjusted the pace of his lessons accordingly.

He has provided a number of excellent online resources, some of which he is helping to develop. I am very pleased with the resources and the lessons."
