My practice is based in a firm understanding of the laryngeal anatomy and a background in pedagogy the emphasizes a learning module. Clients learn to form new neural pathways to create sounds and shapes more consistent with their preferred spoken language. I also work with cases of jaw tension, and muscle tension dysphonia--both of which can make speaking and accent reduction difficult.

I have worked with Anisoara for over a year now, and my Romanian understanding has grown considerably. Romanian is her mother tongue. She is a patient instructor who has composed her own materials and works easily with other Romanian grammar books. I highly recommend her.

Ani is a wonderful and patient teacher who truly cares about your learning. I have wanted to improve my Romanian skills for years but didn’t think it was possible due to my age or time constraints. I’m so happy to have found her lessons online and look forward to each week!

Hey, I'm Evan. I'm a college student with an immense love for ASL and experience in leading children. Whether you are a student struggling in ASL class or all you need is someone to sign with, I am perfect for any aspiring ASL users!

For a little background on my love of ASL, when I was young, I had the privilege of studying under an amazing deaf ASL teacher. In his spare time, he ran a nonprofit dedicated to deaf children in his birth country of Zambia. That inspiring experience led me to integrate myself as heavily as I could into the deaf community in my hometown of San Francisco.

Now I figure that tutoring is an amazing excuse to keep my ASL sharp and a great way that I can give back to the community by spreading ASL!

About Evan

I am currently a philosophy and political science student at Bard who skipped senior year of high school to go directly into college. When I'm bored I fidget in asl and in my free time, I transcribe some of my favorite songs into ASL. In my time studying ASL, I had a deaf teacher so immersion was

Evan is integrated into the culture of ASL, which brings an interesting perspective into the tutoring session. He is very patient and promotes self-education within the session, forcing you to really learn the language.
Overall, very pleasant as a tutor.

I really appreciated Lilla's help with Hungarian. She was easy to understand, tailored each lesson to what I needed help with, and gave me helpful resources to practice with. I needed help reviewing and refreshing my Hungarian language knowledge before moving to Hungary, and felt much more confident in my skills after my lessons with her.

"Astrid has been such a great teacher. We have worked privately in lessons through the recommendation of a friend of hours. I have always wanted to learn German, even though growing up in a German speaking family. Astrid was kind and patient, and my mind was immersed in a new language from day one. Now I can have fluent conversation with her and other friend in German after a few month of intense work. She is really skillful and tailors to your need. I give my highest recommendation to Astrid."
