I’m a native of Iran and have professional knowledge of Persian literature, history, and culture. I love teaching and introducing the rich language and culture of Iran to those who are interested. In addition to teaching speaking, listening, writing, and grammar, I provide lessons in Persian culture, poetry, and history. Because of my love for poetry, you will always hear some Persian poems from me here and there! :) I also love cooking Persian food and do provide my recipes to my students! :)

Bahareh is wonderful! Definitely exceeds my expectations about language tutoring. She has a great personality, is very organized with the content, and makes me feel very comfortable and optimistic about the subject and my ability to learn it. Highly recommend!

I am a native Portuguese speaker with many years of experience as a language teacher and as a translator. I offer tutoring in both conversational and formal Portuguese (grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, usage) to students of all levels and backgrounds with personalized lessons. These lessons will be fun, geared toward your personal goals and interests, and will always take into account your learning style and pace.

I tutor both private individuals and small groups. We can meet at my studio in Irvine, anywhere in the Irvine/Newport Beach area, or online. My schedule is flexible and includes mornings, evenings and weekends.

If you want to:

- prepare for a trip to Brazil or Portugal,
- become more fluent in order to excel in social or business settings
- brush up on what you have already learned,
- or truly master the Portuguese language,

then I am ready to help you reach your goals by developing a lesson plan that will best suit your needs.

I look forward to ...

About Joao

I believe that anyone can learn an instrument and, even more importantly, that everyone can enjoy the process of learning music. I lived in Brazil, Portugal, Netherlands, Germany, and in Boston before moving to New York. Moving around so much has brought me in contact with all sorts of people an

If you're reading this, you are very lucky because you've just found the most amazing music teacher!
Our son has studied piano with Joao for the past four years. He started with Joao when he was six and continues to this day. He loves Joao. Joao is a patient, intuitive and adaptive teacher that provides incredible instruction, in any music genre. He honed in on our son's musical interests early on, making learning piano fun and interesting. We often say, Joao is not just teaching our son piano, he is giving him a music education, introducing him to an array of amazing pieces from different genres. He's a rare talent both as a teacher and musician. We feel incredibly lucky to have found him. You will too!

I studied jazz piano with Joao for over a year. In my time working with him, I learned a tremendous amount. Joao is both an extremely talented musician and a skilled instructor. He clearly cares a great deal about his students and their progress. He was always patient (especially during weeks when my practicing had been slow) and both encouraging and supportive of my efforts to master new concepts in jazz. Joao has an excellent sense for what his students want to accomplish in their musical explorations, and an ability to tailor his lessons to the student’s unique goals. He has an impressive knowledge of both the history of jazz and music theory which makes him an incredible resource for learning about the jazz idiom. Last but not least, Joao was very personable and fun to talk to, and I always a enjoyed working with him. He is an outstanding teacher.

Joao is an amazing piano teacher. I would highly recommend taking lessons with him!

So far, I have had one class and I love it! She explains things so well and has tricks to help me memorize rules.
Kathy O.
We bought 20 sessions with Joanna to start with. My two daughters just had their 1st lessons with her and they love her! Joanna made it fun and easy to correctly pronounce words and remember things. I feel like they already learned a lot in their first session. Even I learned a new word sitting in on the lesson and I consider myself fluent in Polish. They worked on grammar and Joanna showed my daughters an easy trick to remember how to properly conjugate verbs. It's like a light came on in my daughters' heads and they both said, "that makes sense." It just clicked. I love Joanna's strategy and visuals. She's great!

I was interested in learning to sign from the time I was a little girl. American Sign Language and the Deaf culture have always been fascinating to me. When it was time to choose a college and career, I sought a way to use ASL in my daily life. I became a Teacher for the Deaf, and I continue to have a passion for both the language and the culture. I want to share that passion with you!

I have been a Teacher for the Deaf for 5 years. I work daily with students who use ASL as their main form of communication. In addition to meeting their individual needs, I create goals and implement direct lessons to help them learn and improve ASL.

I learned American Sign Language in a formal college setting. I learned ASL from both Deaf and hearing instructors. I met several times weekly with my professors in the classroom setting and participated in "immersion" hours throughout my college career. Now, I use it daily to communicate with my students and other professionals.

About Robyn

"Turtle." It was the first sign I learned as a kid, and it stuck with me. From that time forward, I wanted to learn American Sign Language. I didn't have the opportunity until I reached college, where I dove head first into the world of ASL and the Deaf community. I earned a Bachelor's Degree in

My name is Barbara, I was born and raised in Germany and worked for 15 years as a Training and Quality Executive in the hotel industry, one of the companies being The Ritz-Carlton, one of the best training companies in the world. I was in charge of all in-house training sessions, spent up to 20 hours per week in a classroom environment and was chosen as a Property Opening Trainer for The Ritz-Carlton, Berlin. I transferred with The Ritz-Carlton to Miami in 2005. I enjoyed working as an Executive at The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach until 2009, when I got married and had my daughter.

I decided to fully homeschool my ten-year old daughter for two years, who, as a result, is fluent in German in both speaking and writing. We moved to NYC in 2013 and I was approved by and followed the official NYC Department of Education guidelines for homeschooling. I joined a weekly after-school program at my church in NYC, taught in English, and have been the director since 2015. In 2019, my family and I

"Since Last December my daughter really enjoys having Sensei Yoshi as her Japanese tutor. Sensei is great at understanding what my daughter needs to learn in order to do her best in her Japanese class. Sensei Yoshi has been very patient with my daughter and has touched on the basics of Japanese further pushing my child to execell. I really recommended Sensei Yoshi if you are looking for a Japanese teacher"

"Myriam is an amazing teacher. She is professional, knowledgeable, kind and dedicated to helping me learn as much as possible. She makes sure I have the opportunity to see, hear and speak with each linguistic idea we are learning about. She also tests my knowledge to figure out where I need help which means that after every lesson, I feel that I am learning more than I knew before we started. She is a gem and the lessons are the highlight of my week."

"Allan was a lovely surprise. My first lesson was stress-free and FUN! He was so kind, patient, and encouraging. He has inspired me to look at my language learning in a different, more positive way that will help me grow. Just one lesson with him and my confidence has increased substantially. After more than 30 years away from the language, I was so unsure of myself and my ability with French. However, with Allan, I feel as if I've hit the jackpot - gaining a tutor who not only understands what I'm going through but who will help me achieve my goals more enthusiastically."

She is very reliable and was always patient with the kids. Her love of children was clearly visible at all times. Perhaps more importantly, the children adored her too. Her intelligence, caring nature, sense of humour and her ability to adapt very quickly to the children’s needs makes it easy to highly recommend her for tutoring."

"Nothing beats learning from a native speaker, especially one as knowledgeable and professional as Artem. Russian is his native language, but you would never have guessed it since his English is impeccable. He takes difficult concepts and makes them simple to understand. He walks with you each step of the way, meeting you at your level and guiding you to fluency. He understands the best way you learn and adapts to your learning needs and situation. Artem will help you attain native pronunciation and will go out of his way to provide extra help and materials. I've been amazed how much I have gained from lessons with him. Highly recommended. Wonderful teacher."
