I am a 62 year old person who had previously studied Spanish using Rosetta Stone and Duolingo. I started taking lessons with Georgina several years ago to provide a regular opportunity to engage in Spanish conversation. Our lessons have been free-flowing and she introduced me to a number of books written in Spanish which were not only helpful in further developing my knowledge of Spanish but were culturally enlightening as well. Georgina is easy to engage, a delightful person to know and an excellent instructor.
Christopher
Georgina is a native speaker with a clear, concise approach and dives right in. So far so good.

My background as a singer and speaking voice expert has allowed me to help many not native English speakers gain confidence! I also work with regional accents to help "neutralize" . Bet you can't tell I'm from Chicago: I got rid of MY OWN accent through vowel work!

Molly is amazing! She’s taught me way more than singing skills - my confidence as a singer has grown exponentially since I began taking lessons from Molly. I would recommend Molly to anyone, especially anyone who may think that lessons are intimidating. I feel comfortable making mistakes because Molly is so kind and positive. That said, since starting taking lessons with Molly, I’ve been making a lot fewer mistakes! Molly is the best!
Tia
Molly is such a kind and patient teacher. She never gets upset if you make a mistake and she is extremely encouraging throughout the lesson. I'm a very shy singer but I feel comfortable singing in front of Molly because she isn't judgemental at all! I always look forward to my lessons with her and I've already grown as a singer and grown confidence-wise because of working with her! I highly recommend her!

Rebecca
Julie is top notch! She is a great educator and works to find what her students like to play and let’s them explore that while making sure they have broad exposure to many music styles. She is extremely organized and efficient and the kids love her. Choosing Julie was the best decision we made for our son. He has grown so much musically under her teaching.
Elizabeth
I am one of Julie’s adult students, and have been taking piano lessons with her for just under a year and a half. She has helped me so much and I’m so glad I found her.

Before finding Julie, I had been playing for about six months on my own with very slow improvement and no understanding of music theory. Julie has helped increase my understanding of music theory, encouraged me to play in public with confidence, and helped me learn pieces I never thought I would ever be able to play.

Julie has a very nice and warm personality and I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a piano teacher.
Brett
Ensures the child is playing things that appeal while still grounding in classics. Sensitive to the student's progress and keeps the material aligned with achievable goals. Stays connected emotionally, with regular praise and rewards. So glad we found Julie!

I have a Ph.D. in Philology and am a native Russian speaker born in Moscow - the capital of Russia. Therefore, I can apply my knowledge of language methodologies to teach Russian. Also, I have tutored foreign students in Russian for many years already.

Russian is my native language and it is one of the most beautiful, amazing languages in the world; it is the language of great writers and poets, actors and artists, philosophers and scientists, musicians and humanists. Besides teaching I held lectures in theory of language, history of language, psycholinguistic, and sociolinguistics.

About Tatiana

I am a former German professor from Russia who currently lives in America and tutors full time now Russian and German. I provide a variety of activities for my lessons so you will never get bored. For example, I will use games, interactive conversational lessons, fun warm up tasks, case studies,

"I highly recommend anyone who is either a beginner, or any level of French to use Tania as a tutor. I started to learn French at a very basic level and currently I feel very comfortable with the basics of the language. What I like the most about my lessons with Tania is that French is used throughout the duration of the lesson, which really helps one to be submerged into the language."

Un, Le, Ce, or De? French Articles Explained

As an English speaker learning French, articles are little words that can still give you big problems. Since French nouns are masculine, feminine, and plural and have different articles to distinguish them, you will need to memorize at least two French articles for each English one. To help you master French articles, we've broken them down into groups for you to study.
