Giulio is one of the best language teachers I have ever had. I have studied French, Hebrew, Greek, and Latin. Giulio does an excellent job at referencing what I know and moving me forward quickly, but not so quickly that I get lost or miss anything important.

About Victor
I'm 24 yo, quick, ingenious, stimulating, alert and outspoken. I'm resourceful and solve new and challenging problems. I'm adapt at generating conceptual possibilities and then analyzing them strategically. I'm good at reading other people. I get bored by routine. I will seldom do the same thing the same way. I'm apt to turn to one new interest after another. I have years of experience in teaching children and adults. I use MBTI as my main tool, knowing that each person has a different way to learn. I consider myself funny and kind, I'm not a robot while I'm teaching. I taught in an Language Center for 4 years and I've been traveling around the globe in order to improve my knowledge about different country where English is the first language. Will be a pleasure to share all my experiences with you.

Victor is a really, really good teacher!! He's funny, engaging, he cares about your experience and helping you learn the way you learn best, and at your pace. That doesn't mean he's too soft or let's it be too easy, because he does challenge you. He tells you before you start that some lessons will be easier, and others will be difficult. All in all, I think he's pretty awesome, and amazing to work with!!

About Tamari
Hi, there! My name is Tamar; I'm called Tamari, informally, and Tamara for the stage, and I can't wait to meet you!

I've been teaching private lessons for many, 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

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.

M. Marie Roche conducted on the campus of U Mass eight seminars--open to all--on two of Shakespeare's history plays, King John and Richard II. Neither play is popular with modern Shakespeare-going audiences. But she accomplished the nearly impossible--making both plays compelling and relevant by her selection of background documents and themes. I hope that TakeLessons can provide an adequate platform for her level of sophistication.

About Sara
I speak English, Spanish, a little Italian, and can read or write in American Braille. In high school I was in the top of my class, and took many AP and honors courses. I started college when I was 15 and am still currently pursing my target degree.
I have worked with many students (of all ages) to help them expand the knowledge of their target language, and help them learn specific language learning tools that will help them in the future.
I know that each student is different and his or her needs will be different when learning languages but I can help each student to their specific needs. Whether it be learning new vocabulary or learning conversation skills, I will tailor each lesson specifically to each person.
Although learning a new language is a daunting task, it can be fun and open you up to new culture and experiences you would
not otherwise get. My aim while tutoring you is to help you not only learn a language, but help you love the language that you use and be able to use it practically in everyday life.
