Mariana was a great tutor. I am an adult with little experience speaking French. I enjoyed our conversations and she made learning the language very enjoyable. I hope to continue.

Mariana has been an incredible instructor. I came to her as an adult with no previous understanding of French. Her passion for teaching and knowledge of not only the language, but the culture as well, are unparalleled. She immediately made me feel confident by including conversation in our first lesson. I could not have asked for a better introduction to French. I highly recommend Mariana as your first choice for French!

About Mya Mya Seinn
Hello there!

My name is Mya and I am a very patient instructor and understand that students learn at a different pace, after all everyone is an individual!

I am currently available to teach at my studio. Availability changes every week and please contact me for availability.

I received my degree in Geology from Yangon University in Yangon, Burma in 1993. After I moved to New York City in 2005, I earned a M.A. (Geology) from The City College of New York in 2010. I learned crocheting and sewing from my mother. I also took a bauble, bangle and bead string class, Draping I and II clas
ses, and pattern making I and II classes from Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City.

I’ve been teaching private sewing lesson (since 1998), beading and pearl knotting lesson (since 2009), and Burmese language (since 2014) and I have loved helping my students.
Although trained in standard teaching methods, I developed my own method to fulfill my students’ needs.

I am looking forward to helping new students to achieve their goals!

Mya is a wonderful teacher and very patient with her students. My 10 year old daughter just started taking lessons with her and she loves it. Mya is exactly what I was looking for in a teacher for her!

Mya is very patient with novice learners. Both my 12 year old daughter and I have attended class and we both walk away learning new things each time!

Mya has also been very accommodating with my schedule, allowing me the flexibility to adjust my lesson time on several occasions. She has a dedicated space to give lessons that is open and welcoming!

I definitely recommend Mya. I look forward to continuing my lessons with her.

About Tokia
With over a decade of snatching microphones and captivating audiences, Tokia's (2Deep’s) resume reads like Who’s Who travel guide. From Cornell University to Ottawa University, American University to Penn State, United States to Australia, this German born-Alabama raised entertainer has spoken to crowds all over the globe. She’s opened for the late Gil Scott-Heron and performed for President Barack Obama’s first inaugural celebrations at the Washington National Cathedral. She welcomes a freshman class to American University annually and has spoken out against domestic violence on legislative f
loors in Maryland. She keeps busy hosting two monthly, sold out shows (ten years). Armed with a BFA & MFA she's more than equipped to speak her mind before a crowd & teach how you can do it too!

We have only had our first acting lesson and my daughter is 3. I can definitely say from the first interaction I had with Tokia by e-mail up to the end of the first lesson, I couldn't ask for anything more! My daughter has no previous experience in acting and is very shy. Tokia was able to capture moments of engagement with my daughter and got her to act out a few scenes!! I love Tokia so far and look forward to continue to work with her!!!

· Spoken Word · In studio
I have known and worked with Tokia for almost a decade. She is a consummate performer who has forged a well-respected name for herself on the spoken word scene. She has an innate understanding of how to build a rapport with the audience at any venue. Her writing is insightful and deeply moving, and her performance is engaging. Aspiring writers and spoken word artists would certainly benefit from her guidance. Tokia is also extremely professional in how she conducts business and I am confident that no one studying with her would be disappointed in the quality of training she provides.

About Sean
Hi, I'm Sean! I have always loved helping people realize their potential and have mentored, tutored, and taught in many contexts.

I teach educational skills that I learned during my studies at Harvard College and Berkeley Law School, and test taking skills that I learned earning very competitive scores on the SAT, SAT II, APs, the LSAT, and the GRE. While at Harvard, I also tutored students in sociology, statistics, and writing.

I also teach athletic skills I gained rock climbing for the past decade and competing as a national finalist on NBC's American Ninja Warrior. I have taught count
less children and adults climbing and ninja related skills as an instructor at gyms around the country, and at Primal Fitness here in DC.

I look forward to working with you to help you realize your potential!

· Parkour · In studio
Sean is by far one of the most enthusiastic and naturally talented parkour instructors. He has taught me many movement-based skills in parkour/ninja warrior gyms as well as outdoors. He is great at gauging your skill level and helping you improve in precise and consistent ways. I have also seen Sean work with young kids at competitions and workshops. Kids love his enthusiasm and goofiness. It's like he never gets tired, which is exactly the quality you need to work with young kids!

Thank you, Sean!
