Grammar and conversations skills for beginner and intermediate students.
I teach Spanish and English. I've been teaching English for more than 20 years and Spanish for 8 years. I like to focus my classes on students needs. The most important is to make them feel comfortable and motivated. I use a lot of vocabulary, shown with drawings or materials to show examples. My goal is to make students speak the language in a very natural and easy way.

Vania is an excellent Spanish instructor

I've taken many Spanish lessons that have ranged from various software programs to personal tutors. Vania is great. She knows how to relate with each person in order to convey concepts. She's the best I have worked with.

She's also very accommodating, since I tend to change my schedule around a lot. She is always flexible to accommodate. Vania is simply great.

About Christopher

Hello! Hola! Benvenuto! My name is Christopher S. and I am a classical guitarist, composer, polyglot, and experienced language and music teacher.

I am a recent graduate with a Doctorate of Music Arts degree from the University of South Carolina. I also graduated with my M.M. fro the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA. There I studied with the world-renowned guitarist Eliot Fisk who is a direct student of the legendary guitarist Andres Segovia.

Currently, I work part-time teaching 12 students guitar at the University of South Carolina, in Columbia. I also teach ukulele, Spanish, Italian, and English to a variety of students online. I have also just completed my debut album titled, "Anima - The Music of Spain and Italy for the Guitar." This album is a tribute and memorial to an amazing journey I had traveling and living

in Europe for 3 years.

After I graduated from my undergraduate degree, I realized that in order to better my skills as a musician and become the guitar teacher I wanted to be I had to travel abroad. I moved to Seville, Spain where for three years I studied the art of classical and flamenco guitar.

I studied with an internationally known Spanish guitarist named Francisco Bernier at the Conservatory in Seville. During this time I was also teaching English as a second language to high school and middle school students. From traveling and spending so much time in Europe, I also developed and studied my love of languages and I became fluent in Spanish and Italian.

The experienced was an experience of a lifetime and I made many friends working and living abroad that to this day, I still keep in contact with.

If you are interested in having lessons with me, please contact me and we can begin learning the art of making beautiful music or learning the beautiful languages of the Mediterranean! "Hasta pronto!" "A presto!" and "Speak to you soon!"

I have taught English to Korean immigrants in Virginia. I organized English classes for church attendees who wished to improve their English communication skills. I developed weekly lessons based on the needs of the group which introduced them to the basics of English grammar and conversation.

About Hannah

I am an experienced Korean teacher from Korea who has taught all levels of Korean to English speakers. I tailor my lessons to the interests of students and make my classes interactive. I develop customized lessons to reinforce the material from the book and reinforce grammar topics. On occasion we even go on field trips to local Korean restaurants!!!

I recently began taking lessons with Hannah and it has been a wonderful experience. I went in intimidated at the thought of learning such a difficult language from scratch, but Hannah has been a very helpful and encouraging instructor and makes the language so much more manageable. I've been rather amazed by how much Korean I have been able to pick up in such a short time and have no doubt that I can become fluent eventually under her instruction. Anyone interested in learning Korean should absolutely take lessons with Hannah!

My son and I had our first lesson with Hannah. It went very well. Hannah is engaging and patient. She really understands that studying Korean is no easy feat and takes the time to explain things to e Janice our comprehension.

I’ve taken a few classes with Hannah and learned a lot. Her style is patient, but in a way that challenged me to work hard and learn as much as possible, quickly and efficiently. She always came prepared to teach, has great classroom management skills and her lessons are engaging. If you would like to learn Korean, sign up now - you won’t be disappointed!

I was an ESL students for one year and I know how important it is to have someone who can give you the right information in a simple way. I helped a lot of students with their struggles in English as a volunteer at an adult school. And I hope you can give me your trust as well to help you achieve your goals.

About Hend

As a person who speaks 3 languages and trying to learn a fourth one, i do know what is like to have the passion and the desire to learn new languages. I am a native Arabic speaker, I learned French and English since I was 3 years old, and currently I’m discovering a new language which is Spanish.

As a trilingual person, I know the importance of languages, as they helped me to shape my personality and open up to new cultures.

I moved to the United States of America 5 years ago. I took one year of ESL program just to refresh my memory and then I received my instructional aid certificate. I volunteered at Chaffey Adult school as an instructional aid for beginners and intermediate classes.

I look forward to meeting you, and help you discover and learn a new language.
