She really took the time to understand what I need and worked with me to help me with my breathing and technique. I am definitely taking more lessons from Benedetta.

I've had 5 lessons with Benedetta and she is fantastic. She focuses on technique which is so important for singers to master. I made progress after my first lesson and each week she teaches me something new. I highly recommend her and if you want results, she'll help you get to the level you want to achieve!

Experienced professional teacher, specializing in beginner and intermediate students. I have worked primarily with teens and adults, but welcome all ages to join me in their learning adventure. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in French Language and Literature and a Master of Arts in Teaching.

One of the most important things about learning is knowing what your goals are, and I'm happy to help guide you to the proficiency you desire! My methods steer more towards comprehensible input, an approach that allows us to dive right into French, no matter the topic. If you've tried to learn before and are expecting verb conjugation charts, you won't find too much of that here. Let's get to know one another, tell stories, and fill our tool kit with essential skills and fun vocabulary we want to use. This approach doesn't mean we won't ever discuss grammar or usage -- those things are important too! But you will learn them in context, embedded in our lessons, activities, and discussions.

I first started learning French in 1993. My 7th grade best friend and I thought it would be very cool to learn French. We had those adoles

I am an experienced native speaking German tutor who has been teaching students of all ages and levels. I am a certified Montessori Teacher. I believe in gently guiding, supporting, encouraging but also challenging my students. I love to share many fun facts , i.e. hilarious literal translations, as well as cultural and historical background of Germany. This will give my student a well balanced foundation, he /she will really experience the language, get a “real feel” for it! I customize my curriculum to my students needs, wishes and goals. After a few lessons my students can speak easy sentences and phrases in German already, they will understand even more and will use their newly acquired skills continuously. I strongly stress speaking in my native language to my students from an early point on. It is very important to me to make the language learning a pleasant and enjoyable experience! There shall be lots of laughter! However diligent work and great effort is necessary

Susanna is a wonderful instructor! After just 3 lessons with her, I can already see a huge improvement in my speaking and listening comprehension skills. Her method of instruction is unique and she knows how to tailor her lessons to the needs of each student. I am so glad that I have chosen Susanna as my German teacher and I would recommend her to anyone wanting to truly master the German language. Vielen Dank Liebe Susi! Du bist eine wunderbare Lehrerin!

"She's absolutely wonderful. I've found that im rather dense when it comes to learning new languages but she was so patient. In one class, I learned how I was pronouncing things incorrectly. I've learned so much just from this short time. Ten out of ten."

"Suyeon is an AMAZING teacher! Today was my first class so Suyeon wanted to know where my knowledge of Korean was so far, so she quizzed me on a range of things. For 30 minutes I felt like I refreshed a lot of stuff!! I'm glad she's so patient, because I kept stumbling over myself nervously, but she was willing to listen and sorta help me without full-out giving me the answers at times. I cannot wait for the next lesson!"

"Mozhgan is an amazing tutor!! She tailors the course to you pace and level so that you can move as fast or as slow as you want, and constantly asks for feedback. Her course structure is very organized, and she gives the student time to understand the concepts very clearly. She reviews what both student and teacher went over in the beginning as well so we're constantly building knowledge instead of just learning new things. She also does the EXCELLENT JOB to give cultural context for the lessons, which helps understand why certain words are used in certain ways.

I met her in person, but she is so flexible and based on my request, she sometimes helps me with online tutoring. I really appreciate her for both the online sessions and in person classes because sometimes traveling is hard for me after work. She is flexible and will work to make sure nothing gets in the way of learning. I am really lucky to have had Ms. Mozhgan Hudiburgh as my knowledgeable Persian Farsi tutor.I recommend Mojy ( Ms. Mozhgan Hudiburgh) to everyone."
