About Necole
I am a hard of hearing and fluent in American Sign Language who has been teaching ASL private lessons since 2008 and is currently available to teach lessons at your home, at public setting, and online]. I am currently an ASL teacher at High School in the Atlanta area and work with students with a learning difference. I specialized in differentiating ASL lessons for students who struggle with language. I have helped students improve their signing skills, increase sign vocabulary words, a better understanding of ASL syntax (word order), better their receptive (reading signs) skills, and help with their ASL homework assignment.

I received my training at Gallaudet University in 2007 where she received a degree in Sociology and Government. As an expert in my field, I look forward to helping new students achieve their goals.

About Sara Ann
I pace our lessons and over explain a technic to make certain the client gets the concept in a HUMORFUL, JOYFUL way. Patiently we apply it to a song that is your target song or to how and what you want product or YOU you want to sell to clients/your job/your promotion/ your new career.
With two masters degrees in voice and speech-language pathology, with specializing in eliminating chronic hoarseness and giving you the perfect foreign accent, I am a premier singing teacher who still sings at jazz jams sessions and former university professor of Kristin Linklater and Alexander methods. I previously was a full time professor of voice and music education, a Fulbright instrumental/vocal teacher at high school level, an elementary music supervisor. Presently, I am a film experienced screener for festivals, play bass guitar, I teach in pers
on onsite in a group, on Skype, and in Buckhead Atlanta 1:1 pitching your voice as an actor or salesman or singer. Clients love how I mold at least one technique to your speaking & singing voice the first 30 minute session.

Love the lessons with Sara Ann - informative, interesting, and always helpful! She is a true speech master who can clearly identify what is missing and find excellent tools to fix it. of My first language is Russian and I was always excited to minimize its presence when I speak English. I tried some online videos but realized unless someone in person points you to what exactly sounds wrong, there won't be any results.
Sara Ann is awesome in explaining details and makes it all smooth and easy. I can really see improvements. Highly recommend!

About Melissa
I have been teaching Spanish, Portuguese and English at both the high school and college levels since 2007. I have a PhD in Spanish and Portuguese (Romance Languages) from Harvard University, and I have taught everything from Spanish 1 through advanced literature courses, to Portuguese for Spanish Speakers.

I enjoy working with students one on one and helping them feel empowered to use the language right away. I put a lot of time and joy into planning classes for each student, based on their goals and interests. I keep my classes really light and fun, but I will also make sure that you are learning!

I have experience working with students with learning differences, and have worked with children and adults.

If you want to work with a real teacher who can design a class just for you, I am the teacher you are looking for!

Whate
ver your goals are with Spanish, I can help you get there! Get in touch any time to tell me about your goals. Hasta pronto!

About Andrew
I teach/tutor a myriad of topics and love doing it. I'm currently attending the Georgia Institute of Technology, studying aerospace engineering and computer science, so I love science and math (particularly when it has to do with space stuff). I'm super outgoing and a very laid back, chill person all at the same time (being like this has produced quite the stories). I also love food, a lot.

Working with others and helping them succeed has been something I've loved to do for a while now. While I was in high school, I was a coach for one of the local swim teams and had a blast getting to teach people how to swim and such, and the best part was getting to connect with those kids and seeing them succeed during the swim meets.

Once I graduated, I had the privilege to serve as a full time volunteer in Brazil for a couple years, where my
sole focus, every day, was to help others to improve the quality of their life. In doing so, I had the wonderful opportunity to meet new people everyday and see people's lives drastically improve. Another cool part of this experience was that I got to teach English as a second language to people who'd never spoken it before. They loved it, and in the time that I did teach it, students went from speaking no English to being able to form basic sentences and have simple conversations.

Now in college, I've strived to continue this pattern with the little free time that I get during the week and on the weekends due to my classes. Throughout all of this, I've discovered how easy it is for me to connect with people and how much fun it can be.

What I bring to the lessons:
I always ensure to provide the highest quality lessons and ensure that the student easily understands the materials. I'll provide materials that I know will assist the student to master the concepts.

My expectations:
Learning requires the student to put in effort. Any assignments I give, I will expect them to be completed. I understand that sometimes one of "those weeks" comes around where life hits us in the face, but it's not every week.

Your expectations:
You've come to me obviously to learn something new, and I intend to go above and beyond those expectations. I want the lessons to be more than just sit down, do the work, and then leave. That's not a great way to learn stuff, in my opinion. Expect to be brought out of your comfort zone a bit and experience things you never experienced before. Above all, expect to see these lessons as an enjoyable experience.

About Ashli
Hi! My name is Ashli Adams and I have been a professional actress for over 20 years. I have several professional (TV/Film) credits and I have been in over 20 stage plays. In addition to my professional career, I have been studying acting for over 15 years and hold a bachelors degree in theatre acting from The California Institute of the Arts.

I began coaching and directing actors about 10 years ago. I can teach any age (5+) and any experience level, though, having been a child actor myself, I connect especially well with kid and teen actors. My teaching methods are rooted in several different techniques (method, Uta Hagen, Stanislavsky) but overall, my approach is one that immerses the actor in their work fully. Our sessions will engage your mind, body, and spirit with the hopes that you will become a well rounded and captivating arti
st and performer.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

About Isaac
Every one of my students say it's fun to have lessons with me! They learn the best English and have fun while doing it. I am disciplined. know my craft, have over 20 years experience and understand the difficulties of learning a new language. I took French courses in high school, at Indiana University where I received my B.A. in English, and in NYC at the Alliance Francais and with private teachers. I also learned German while teaching dance and performing as a singer/dancer in Munich, Germany without the benefit of any formal instruction. I fully understand what language learners go through. physically , mentally, and emotionally. I am, also, an excellent writer and enjoy teaching the skill to students. I have helped a young Russian businessman, transplanted to Mannheim, Germany, who would barely open his mouth during lessons and knew p
recious little about sentence structure, learn to speak and write well enough to make a 5/6 test score on his GMAT. I helped a Spanish student speak well enough to get a new IT job with Adidas at their home base in Germany. I helped a young, 16 year old, Japanese student, transplanted to Holland, improve his English so that he was able to pass his proficiency tests with flying colors. And we all had a great time getting there! I love teaching and I love working with students who want to be taught!!

A friend recommended Isaac as an English teacher two years ago. We've been working together since then, and thanks to Isaac, I've made significant progress with my English. With his experience, Isaac quickly recognizes the needs of the students and approaches them purposefully and very professionally. Thinking of the advances I could make with Isaac, it is now possible for me to start a job in an international company.

During many years of cooperation, I have not only found a good teacher in Isaac, but also a good friend!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Isaac for the excellent cooperation.
