Привет! Russian is my first language and it has a very special place in my heart. I love it for its emotional charge and incredible poetic expression.
After many years of helping my friends who study classical voice, I found new interesting and simpler ways to teach this language.

Q&A:

Q.: Do you teach bi-weekly lessons?

A.: No, I do not give bi-weekly lessons, and require all of my students to take at least 4 lessons a month to be able to join my studio.

Q.: What happens if I miss a lesson?

A.: My studio policy is that all of my students are required to give me an at least 24-hour notice if they will be missing their lesson for any reason with the exception of illness or family emergencies. It is the student's responsibility to reschedule the lesson for the same week, or their lesson time will be charged in full. For illnesses and family emergencies I will require a doctor's note or a short letter explaining the reason behind their absence.

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.

My tutoring approach:
My Persian/Farsi language classes are conducted at my home and on Skype, seven days a week. And there you'll find that my tutoring method makes it so much fun to learn the beautiful Persian language which is so pleasing to the ear. I use video / audio files and texts as well as I provide engaging homework.

About Farangis

I'm an enthusiastic and certified tutor of my native Persian/Farsi with 6 years of professional experience. I have 2 M.A. degrees in Creative Writing and Literature.

I have taught English to Koreans back in Seoul for more than 8 years, so I know exactly how different these two languages are.

Based on this understanding of how I need to approach non-Korean speaker especially whose mother tongue is English, I am confident that I can let you start studying Korean the easiest way and make the class fun with lots of introduction of Korean cultures and history.

About Suyoun

Hello! My name is Sue and I've been teaching English to Koreans, Koreans to English speakers since 2007. From this long experience, I learned how different and opposite these 2 languages are, so I can teach my student how to learn this beautiful Korean language the most efficient way and fun.

Krista was very patient and flexible with out family. I'd recommend her to anyone seeking to learn ASL. She's very knowledgable and can follow the conversation where it flows naturally.
Nate J.
Krista is so good!! Not only does she teach ASL in a way that makes sense, she is also very positive and encouraging. There have been many times when I have doubted myself or felt anxious about my ability, and she is the first one to encourage me to keep going and that my best is good enough. I think I will be using her for a long time coming, hopefully I can become fluent at some point! I would highly suggest if you're looking to learn ASL, you book with her. I started from complete beginner and have been with her for a few months.

"I am thrilled to be working with Ariella Edvy in my quest to learn Hebrew. Her approach of using music and video clips to teach make her lessons fun and relevant. But there are two things that really set her apart -- her art of teaching elocution (she makes you feel it!) and her way of modeling her lessons to each individual's learning style."

I highly endorse Valentina and think she is an excellent tutor especially, for a working adult who is willing to work hard to progress. Thank you for your help."

She is very well trained, and my son has made a lot progress with her. She is also flexible with her time. In fact, she often extends the time of the lesson if she needs to reinforce an idea. We appreciate that she is always patient and accessible, as well as a passionate, about teaching."

Learn Japanese Through Music: 7 Fun Songs to Sing at Karaoke

Karaoke is a fun activity in any language, but believe it or not, singing karaoke is also a great way to improve your Japanese-language skills. Karaoke, as we know it, actually started in Kobe City, Japan. The word 'karaoke' is a combination of the words kara (from karappo, which means 'empty') and oke (from okesutura, which means 'orchestra'). You may not have realized that you can learn Japanese through music, but karaoke is one of the best ways to practice vocabulary and …
