My emphasis is on a dialogue-driven media-enriched, and comparative introduction for the language to draw out a common ground and familiarize possibly daunting differences. I use a customized curriculum addressing frequently requested topics, as family, travel, outdoor, seasons, and custom themes for an optimal lesson experience.
For example, students have favorably reviewed my unique usage of audio monitoring software during online lessons to help approximate accent issues between different languages. Students obtain a repository of audio files to complement each lesson. My multimedia approach that coordinates sound, visual, and online resource, as Easy German and Google Earth, turns German into a good choice for a second or additional language.
I grew up bilingual English and German, attending an international school from a very young age. I attended, also, a German public secondary school, where I earned a diploma, and I completed German credits at the college level. Therefore, ...

Erol utilizes an audio software to analyze and determine what needs to be worked. This eliminates a lot of human hearing errors and gives me a visual on what’s correct vs incorrect. Highly recommended for you to try his method out.

I enjoyed the lesson very much, he started out teaching things that made sense so that I would learn faster than the lessons I have previously taken and not done well with.
I'm looking forward to the next lesson and am practicing what we went over in class.

Errol G. is very patient and accommodating when working with younger students.

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

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.

I am the most French cliche person you can meet in Los Angeles.
I am speaking English with a very thick accent, which will get you started right away, I have been living in America for 4 years so I deeply understand its culture.

I am funny but serious, classes with me will be very fulfilling but also entertaining and pleasant.

I can help you improve your pronunciation, develop a more American accent, fine-tune your grammar, improve word choice, take into account cultural considerations and more.

Tell me what you need, and I'll create it for you. Here are some examples of specific things we can work on too: phone skills, giving presentations, interview prep, interacting with patients, selling to potential clients. And there is so much more.

When you work with me, I create a program specifically for your needs, so you can reach your personal and professional goals. Since your lessons are designed just for you, the time you spend practicing is efficient and you make progress toward your goals quickly.

Vera
Before I took my classes with Nicole, I was unable to pronounce certain words because of my accent. This affected my progress at work. After 12 classes and a lot of practice, I was much more confidant with my speech and pronunciation. Nicole was very professional and knew exactly how to help me improve. She was very flexible when it came to scheduling our online classes. I would defiantly recommend Nicole, she is a great person and an even better teacher.
Pilar
I have lived in the USA for about 20 years and couldn't recognize the pronunciation mistakes I made on my conversations, all I knew was that conference calls at work were moments of suffering and anxiety for me.
Nicole helped me to understand and correct my mispronunciation. She is an amazing and dedicated teacher with an incredible amount of patience.
After the completion of our classes I received a promotion at work and I attribute it in part to the improvements I made on my speech.
Thanks to Nicole I'm not uneasy any more about conference calls :-)
I highly recommend her!
Julie
The reason I looked for accent reduction training was I wanted to improve on my English and people understand my accent better. Our trainings were really helpful. When I started the training, I thought I just needed accent lesson, but during the process, I realized I needed the help for grammar, writing, vocabulary etc. I felt my lesson was comprehensive English not just limited accent lesson. I liked you to record my accent and listened together. I didn't like to hear my voice and accent , but it was great reality check. I also liked the motivation and encouragement from you. Your honesty was really helpful too. The favorite part was having good conversation with you. I recommend Nicole because she can detect our problem and really familiar with the problem of Asian accent. She prepares the lesson well and customize our needs. She will set the goal for you, so it is easy to follow. If you are not sure, I want you to take a test and go over with her. It would be the eye opening.

My Spanish lessons are fun and dynamic. The student will learn at their own pace, being always encouraged to improve and perfect pronunciation and structure. My classes include cultural aspects of the language, such as music, cooking, dancing and expressions in order to have a more rounded understanding of the language.
