Maggie is an incredible teacher! My daughter has been taking lessons with her for 3 months now and she has improved so much. My daughter is in high school and has been playing for a few years now. She wanted to be more serious so we started taking lessons with Maggie. She has so much fun every lesson and I can hear her improve every time she practices after a lesson. Maggie makes playing the bass so fun. My daughter is always so excited and I can’t wait to see where this will lead to next.

Maggie has expert knowledge about the double bass from studying with members of the best orchestras in the US. Her teaching lead me to achieve things on the instrument that I didn't know I could do. I highly recommend her as a teacher!

I met Tia during one of her seminars. I started taking life coaching classes with her immediately. I had many issues: my health was falling apart, I was getting depressed, my relationships with people didn't work well, and I really hated my job. So, slowly we started working on all these areas. I won't get into details, but she is not just a motivational teacher, she is searching for answers. She is taking every client so closely to her heart. I'm glad I decided to work on myself. It is a process, but I get so much more focused. I know what I want. And I am confident I can achieve what I want. This is so new to me. I learn to accept myself, love my past and be open to my future. I don't blame myself for my mistakes. I know - now I know better. She is a kind person. She doesn't judge you. No matter what you've done. She is teaching you to see how your past affects your future. She connects the dots. And works hard with you to open your future. Tia is also a yoga and meditation coach and two months ago I started taking her yoga sessions as well. She teaches you how to breath correctly, how to eat right, now to meditate and do yoga postures. I'm on the right track. And I recommend this teacher. Certainly.

I take singing, songwriting and piano lessons with Tia for a few years already! I started - i didn't know much about music, but i had big dreams! Now I have my band, I write, record. I even had a small tour in NY and NJ! I love singing, performing - this is my best therapy and I love helping people with my music. My pitch and rhythm are good now and I had problems before. My songwriting skills improve too. Tia believes that everyone is talented. And she helps you rediscover yourself and unlock your full potential.

Hindi is the National Language Of India, most of the Indians in the USA are willing to teach their children Hindi as an foreign language . This makes me feel more patriotic to teach Hindi to our next generation children.

Hindi being a National Language Of India. Most of the parents in the USA are willing to make their children Hindi literate along with communication. I take the privilege to help them to reach their goal. As Hindi is a foreign language, it will certainly help high schoolers to raise their credits.

Ashwini assumed that I was married upon meeting her, and asked me when I was getting married as soon as she learned I wasn't married. She also asked where I was getting married, even though at the time I wasn't engaged. Even when I made it apparent I wasn't engaged, she continued to refer to my boyfriend as my fiance.

She would send me political things going on in India, even though I have no interest, and it has nothing to do with the lessons I was taking from her. She asked me if my boyfriend was voting, and many personal things that shouldn't be asked of a student learning Hindi.

She often moved my scheduled time around without asking, which meant that I needed to move my schedule around in order to attend her sessions.

As a teacher she was pretty good, but some things disappointed me there too. For instance, I made a sentence in which a jeweler was a woman, and she stated that can't be correct, because there are no woman jewelers. I'm a woman engineer, and it's really sad to see such a sexist thing. Even when I attempted to ask about how you would say something about a woman jeweler, she said it was impossible. Later she said nurses could only be woman.

I am a licensed Spanish teacher for grades 7-12. I learned Spanish, my second language, by living with a Spanish family in Valencia, Spain, and by studying at the University of Valencia for two semesters. I am in my 9th year of teaching Junior High/High School Spanish, and I also have been tutoring Spanish one-on-one as well as group lessons for 7 years.

Thanks to the internet, I invite the world into our lessons! I use many online resources to support all facets of the learning process, i.e., reading, listening, writing, speaking (the highest rung for the skill ladder). This approach enables my students to practice/grow between lessons, AND it exposes them to the many different sounds of Spanish (depending on which of the 21 Spanish-speaking countries the speaker is from). When I am supporting Spanish students, these websites are particularly helpful with more difficult grammar tasks. When the student I am tutoring uses such websites during our lessons, s/he is provided with ...

"This year I decided to make a change in the way my daughter practices the Polish language...traditionally she had been going to a “Polish school”. She was in a class size of 20kids and I was concerned she was not getting the verbal practice that she needed. So this school year I decided to think outside the box and hire Joanna. We just finished our first lesson and I know we made the right choice!
My daughter is actually excited to learn polish outside the traditional “Polish school” classroom now. ;)
Joanna assessed her level by playing a quick game of “what do you see in this picture” making it as enjoyable as possible to assess her level.
We are both happy to have Joanna and look forward to more sessions."
