About Hilda
I am a native Spanish speaker, who also speaks Portuguese, and French. I have taught and tutored Spanish students from beginner-advance levels, both private and in groups for several years and taught Spanish full time at a school from grades 5-12 for a year. I currently teach art and Spanish at school for grades 1-7. I recently started teaching beginner ESL for Spanish speakers. I also teach art, drawing and painting for adults and older teens. I love teaching and intend to make it enjoyable and fun. I always encourage students to become independent and self reliant in all the subjects I teach. I care about each student and base my classes on their personal preferences, needs and circumstances.

About Tamari (Tamara)
Hi, there! I'm Tamara and I can't wait to meet you!

On social media and for those who are more familiar, I'm Tamari. We all learn in different ways; some are more visual; others, auditory; some, kinesthetic--I combine a number of different modalities in my teaching, including direct feedback-teaching--once you learn a concept or skill, teach it, as soon as you possibly can, to someone else! -- this reinforces your own knowledge of the skill or concept!
I've been teaching private lessons for many years and have loved helping my students acquire new skills, master new pieces, and prepare for concerts and performances. Over the years, my younger students have earned Blue and Gold ratings at the Young Musicians' Festival in Fairfield U., some of them earning gold cups: This is a statewide event to encourage long-term commitment
to the art, discipline and joy of music making.
I went to Indiana University's Jacob School of Music and earned a Masters in Piano Performance, and Composition in the '90's. I sang all types of vocal music as well as prepared singers with vocal coaching and voice development techniques 20+ years.
I'm fun loving, patient, and optimistic-- these traits carry through in my teaching style,
One Size does NOT fit all--I approach the lesson plans for each student tailored to your learning style.
Over the past 23 years, my life experiences have encompassed other disciplines and compelled me to learn and acquire many other skills: my liberal arts as well as fine arts education lent itself to helping me work administrative jobs and even expanded into sales and public speaking. I have coached after school and SAT preparation to High School and College age students, helped with the preparation of legal and analytical documents, creative writing and editing assignments; and even tutored computer, social media and Microsoft Office & iWork Suite of applications to older adults.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals

Perfect temperament for working with my 7 year old. Sung Je K adapts to my sons whims and, when needed, drew him back into the lesson using them. Ex. My son, on a suger high from a holliday party at school, started blurting out random words. Sung Je K. Took those words, and used them in the lesson. It was fantastic. Sung Je K is attentive and wants his students to learn. A+ teacher!

About Azalea
Welcome! My name is Azalea, I grew up in Mexico and I am fluent in both English and Spanish. I hold a Master's degree and I have been teaching since 2012. Some of my classroom settings include private lessons, group lessons, summer camps, online lessons, among others. I have experience working with students of all ages and backgrounds such as children, adults, college students, working parents, etc.

I believe it is important for students to be emerged in the language they are learning. For this reason, I like to encourage my students to practice in and outside our lessons as much as possible by speaking, listening, and reading in Spanish. Every single student is different and they all have very different learning techniques; therefore, I personalize my lesson plans to fit my students' needs, learning style, and interests. Plus, the mos
t important part of the learning process is to have fun and to enjoy ourselves every lesson!

Our background or language should never be a reason to feel disconnected from others, like our own family, friends, or colleagues. So if you are looking to learn Spanish for work, school, or just for fun, you are in the right place! I would love to help you conquer your goals and guide you in your Spanish journey!

Thank you for stopping by and please let me know if you have any questions, I can't wait to meet you!

About Kat
How about a relaxed, fun and natural way of learning American Sign Language? Let's try some lessons together. I teach in an interactive and empowering way where discovering the beauty of this visual language and the valuable culture cherished by Deaf and Hearing Americans is part of every lesson.

I cater lessons to match your learning style and communication needs. Your classes will also have music, role-play, games and story telling. I have taught ASL and Deaf Culture to many different students and groups: K-12 students, families with special needs children, college students, interpreting students, professionals, families with Deaf children, adults, home schoolers, choirs, and dance troops.
I am a certified Interpreter with the National Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf and have been a professional interpreter and ASL instructor
since 1991. I am a certified teacher in the state of Connecticut and hold an MS in education, a BA in Communications Human Relations/Interpreting.

The best teacher on this planet earth. I feel so privileged to have been taught by Professor Kathleen, she is amazing. The plus was the introduction to ASL.

P.S: it takes a big heart to help shape little minds.

About Adriana
Hi! I speak Spanish fluently and love to teach. Spanish is my first language which is why I'm confident I can help you speak it too! I've been teaching kids, teenagers and adults for over a decade now. I enjoy teaching others new things and have plenty of patience to see my students accomplish their goals. I can adapt to each student according to their needs. In class, I like to keep things simple but I also enjoy getting a little creative with my teaching. Whether it is that you'd like to learn Spanish to order tacos at a taco stand, to speak to a loved one, for travel or a job. I can teach you all you need to know. See you in my next class!
