About Gregorio
My name is Gregorio M. I am a native speaker of Spanish with a very clear pronunciation. I am a Spanish instructor at Washtenaw Community College. I have a degree in chemistry and a master degree in environmental chemistry.
I have been working as a Spanish tutor in the Ann Arbor area since 2009.
I can teach you all aspects of Spanish language: listening comprehension, pronunciation, reading capacity and analysis, writing, grammar rules, slang and colloquial Spanish, academic Spanish, conversational fluency. Additionally, I could give you, if you are interested, information about Hispanic culture and customs, and more.
You can ask me anything about Spanish and get an explanation. If you ask me "Why do people say this or that in Spanish?", you will get a reasonable answer. I'm not one of those teachers who say "It's just because it's lik
e that in Spanish".

About Chau
I taught Vietnamese language and culture to foreigners, English and Vietnamese to Vietnamese adults and students in Vietnam for 30 years before arriving in the United States in 2008. Then, I continued to instruct Vietnamese language and culture to Americans in Virginia and Washington DC.
I got an Associate degree in Pedagogy in Vietnam in 1977. I also was trained how to instruct U.S diplomats at Foreign Service Institute (FSI) and officers from Defense Language Institute (DLI). I have had enough calm and patience to deal with hard teaching conditions.

I received awards from The Department of State (FSI) and School of Language Studies (FSI) in 2014 and 2015.

A year ago, I didn't know a single word of Vietnamese. Today, I'm sitting in a Hanoi cafe having taken a taxi, having had a conversation about the traffic, our families, and the weather, and having shopped for an hour for gifts for friends and family back in the US - all using Vietnamese I am constantly being complimented on.

Learning Vietnamese was the hardest thing I've ever done, but I had a patient and experienced instructor in Thầy Châu. His methodical curriculum and homework assignments complemented by oral communication rounded me out perfectly. He held me accountable for my shortcomings and built me up when I made mistakes. I wouldn't be where I am today without him and while he wasn't my first instructor, but was by far my best. If I could give him 6 stars, I would.

About Rachel
Rachel has taught private lessons since 2014 and is currently available to teach at your home, local coffee shops and libraries, as well as online. She has successfully helped ESL students learn English by customizing learning activities that are engaging, and stimulate student growth with ease, comfort, and fun.

She has taught for Denver Public School District as a Guest Teacher and volunteered with nonprofit groups as Reading Partners - in which she successfully helped struggling elementary students get on-track with their corresponding reading levels - and working as a camp counselor for underprivileged youth.

No matter what, Rachel always looks forward to helping students achieve their educational goals and objectives. Her teaching style consists of patience, dedication, and discipline.

Actively listening to her student's n
eeds is also an integral component to Rachel's teaching philosophy. Discovering what one student might need from a learning environment could be the polar opposite of the next student might require. (It's not to say that one is necessarily better or worse; it's more like although there are two different roads that a person could choose to take, both will nevertheless take you to your destination).

Listening closely to her students also helps with adapting and designing lessons to not only reflect individual learning styles and preferences, but to also set students up for achieving success and fulfilling their potential.

Rachel received her Bachelors in Communication from Northern Arizona University in 2008 and concluded her radio broadcast internship as Website Entertainment Editor upon graduating.

She went on to University of Phoenix, where she led communication endeavors as a project consultant for a knowledge base renovation and has since been tutoring and teaching for public and private education.

In the one year that I had Mr. Scharping, it was easy to see how much he really loved the language. Personally, I loved his style of continuous repetition in order to learn things. In class he would speak to us in Latin and we would respond in Latin, which really helped me master the language. If you ever needed help he was also very open to help you out. I would gladly recommend Mr. Scharping to any of my friends, if they wanted to learn Latin, because of his diligence and extensive knowledge of the language.

About Isoko
I am a native Japanese speaker and translator living in the United State. I have 2 years of experience to teach Japanese language to American high school students. During my college days, I assisted the Japanese class instructor and helped college students to read, write and speak Japanese. I tutored several students too. I enjoyed it very much.

I studied linguistics and one of the linguistics classes I took was Applied Linguistics, basically how to teach foreign languages. I chose Japanese and ended up with getting self-published with a Japanese grammar book.

I want my students to enjoy learning Japanese, because it is fun to learn a foreign language. I can teach any level and any age. Let me help you to speak real Japanese. Your life will be more colorful.
