Marco A.

San Jose, CA

Bgcheck Background Checked


My Japanese lessons are unique in that I can adapt to multiple learning styles. I can empathize with English learners that have been struggling with Japanese grammar and sentence-forming issues that plague so many by explaining it in innovative ways. I am also very up to date with Japanese pop culture, history, and other fun aspects, such as travel, food, and music, so I often enjoy incorporating those fun topics into my lessons wherever possible!

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

I love all things German and my aim is to encourage my students to feel the same. I've been teaching German for 3 years. My students go from knowing no German to being able to hold conversations to eventually completing their grad studies in a German speaking country!

Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to introduce yourself and before you know it be a German whizz. I try to base my lessons around modern German pop culture typically using current events as inspiration. My lessons feature video links, audio, worksheets, textbooks, and more.

About Sam

Guten Tag, I'm Sam! I was born in England but have been living and teaching in the USA since 2014 where I studied for my MA in German Studies at the University of Florida. This year I became a USA permanent resident and am working my way to becoming a citizen. I started learning German in s

If I could give a 10 star rating, I would award that to Sam. She is an exceptionally outstanding tutor. She took the time to make sure that we were agreed on my goals and preferences for the upcoming sessions. Sam adeptly and promptly put me at ease whenever I was having difficulty with any aspect of the course. As I refined my objectives for the remaining sessions, she seamlessly adapted the sessions accordingly. In the time that I had before my trip to Germany, I feel very confident that I can handle the situations that I most likely will encounter, such as traveling by bus, train or air; dining; getting directions; and understanding native speakers. Here's my final remark: if you are looking for a tutor who will understand and work with you to achieve your goals for learning to understand and speak German, choose Sam!

I learned all the Portuguese I know from taking many different Portuguese classes at college, including grammar, linguistics, and literature and from living in the "Portuguese House" (at the Foreign Language Student Residence, part of on-campus housing at BYU) for two semesters. I specialize in teaching Portuguese to speakers of Spanish, but I can also teach anyone who wants to learn, even without any other prior language experience. I have grown to love the Portuguese language and the people of the various Portuguese-speaking countries around the world.

About Paul

Since I'm absolute beginner in Japanese, I found Paul to be the perfect fit for me. If you are young or adult (me) I would highly recommend taking classes with Paul at least for your beginning classes. I'm sure he would be the perfect fit for you too.

I started taking lessons with Georgina several years ago to provide a regular opportunity to engage in Spanish conversation. Our lessons have been free-flowing and she introduced me to a number of books written in Spanish which were not only helpful in further developing my knowledge of Spanish but were culturally enlightening as well. Georgina is easy to engage, a delightful person to know and an excellent instructor."
