I am a private tutor of Japanese for all ages, currently from age 12 to middle-age. I love to be a witness when my students suddenly "get" something new we've been working on for a while. Japanese is a fascinating, beautiful, and complicated language, and it's exciting to be a partner in my students' achievements and success! Your lessons will be tailored to your needs and goals - if you are a complete beginner, I will recommend a workbook based on your age (adult, high school, or middle school), and as we get to know each other better, you'll get targeted assistance with your weak points. Prepare to do some assigned homework every week, and to be studying vocabulary and writing daily.

As a singer, I pay special attention to accents and dialects of all types. My trained ear will help you sound more natural in conversation, improve speaking and/or singing voice, and your overall communication effectiveness. I operate these lessons a bit differently than other music instruction, but the main goal is still to be as holistic and fun as possible!

As a non-native speaker of English, I struggled to learn the English Language on my own. It was very difficult; however, with hard work and persistence, I managed to learn the language and became proficient at it. Furthermore, my experience in language acquisition led me to tutor students from various non-English speaking countries with difficulties in pronunciation, reading and writing, while pursuing my BA and MA at Brooklyn College University. I rose from my position as Tutor to a Master Tutor/Professor's Assistant. One of the biggest rewards to me is to be able to give back by making other's journey into language acquisition as easy and effective as possible.

My daughter absolutely loves Ms. Catilina. She is extremely nice, has patience , informative, enthusiastic (great energy) and all and all a well rounded individual. She works at the pace of your child or self, and is there every step of the way. There is a balance with teaching and incorporating a little fun. I couldn’t have picked a better Spanish teacher. I highly recommend.
Crystal T.
I was so happy with my lessons. When I mentioned anything I wanted to learn more on, We did it the very next scheduled lesson. I had been learning on my own but lacked the confidence speaking with people, besides my boyfriend. As the lessons went on, I was building that up and now I am confident and excited to be speaking more Spanish with everyone.

I’m really enjoying learning Spanish and feel I’ve already improved even after just 3 lessons! Catalina is encouraging and patient. She is intuitive and goes at my pace.

There are less than a handful of Cantonese learning materials out there, and most of them are outdated. With over 9 years of teaching experience, I will help you speak the language with confidence and make sure you don't sound like a time traveler from the past. (But if you are one, hit me up!)

My students include beginners who would like to try something new; sons & daughters who wish to communicate with their family; people who are interested in Chinese culture; and professionals who want to speak fluently in business settings. Send me a message today and see how we can reach your goals together! All ages welcome!

Being not of college age anymore, attending my first class (private no less) was nerve wracking but exciting. Alice makes you feel so comfortable right away and was very prepared, organized, and went at a speed that was easy to follow. She tries to understand your learning goals as well as your current proficiency in order to judge how to organize the lesson. Highly recommend and looking forward to all my future classes with her!

Just had first lesson and was very happy. Alice was pleasant and prepared. I could tell immediately she was experienced and a good teacher. Can’t wait for the next lesson.

"Philippe was my instructor for 4 weeks and I will say that my confidence in speaking and my understanding of French grammar has skyrocketed!

His teaching style is adaptive! He focuses on the needs of the student and makes learning French feel less like a chore. The environment he sets is one that allows the student to make mistakes without judgement. I greatly appreciated on the spot corrections when I made a mistake. Also, if I did not know the meaning of a word, he would go over it with me to include all related words that would help to remember.

There is never a dull moment in class either. He is very funny and he is very relaxed. With that, be prepared for him to push you very hard.

With all that said, you will not go wrong with having Philippe as your instructor. I guarantee he is the best in the business!

Philippe,
Thanks for the time and effort you took to teach me. I am forever grateful. We will keep in touch!

"I started taking lessons from Jacqueline in person but have moved to online during the shutdown. I'm 66 and have taken some formal french courses but my conversational skills are lacking. It is often difficult finding a teacher that can be effective with someone in my age group. Jacqueline has been excellent at getting me to converse, improving my pronunciation, and working on my comprehension and grammar. We generally meet once a week but I would recommend more often."

30+ Spanish Slang Words and Phrases to Master | Take Lessons

Want to add some Spanish slang to your vocabulary? If you’re tired of sticking to your textbook, it might be time to branch out and learn some new phrases.

Your K-Drama Guide: 4 Korean Drama Series You Should Be Watching
