Wow- first lesson was awesome. Julia was very personable, and she really established a good relationship with my boys.

Julia is an excellent teacher! I came away from first lesson thinking "maybe I can actually learn a new language"......I went in thinking "am I crazy to think I can learn a new language at my age"! Highly recommend Julia as your future teacher!

Our daughter took to Kerstin right away. She did not want the lesson to end!
Pamela W.
Kerstin is a fantastic teacher. She connected right away with my daughter Chloe who is 8 years old and immediately engaged and had her learning German after 1 lesson. She is punctual and professional. I highly recommend her.
Joshua
She was absolutely patient and was able to work with and engage my son who has a learning disability. She did a great job making him feel comfortable and after only one session I could see his confidence go up as he continued to draw into the evening. She really enjoys what she does and it shows in the way she worked with my son.

Teaching has always been my passion. I have been teaching Mandarin for 10 years at various Language Institutes, and taught at private schools in Michigan for total of 5 years. With corporate client experience, I also have been working as a Mandarin instructor in a language company. There are many adult students with different levels who are currently learning Chinese from me. My success stems from enthusiasm, self-motivation, patient, creativity and the ability to communicate with students from diverse backgrounds. It is my goal to combine my range of experience with my ability to make the learning easy and fun.

I've had a great experience so far. Yiju is patient, enthusiastic, and fun. Her lessons are easy to get into and the time flies by really fast. She's very engaging on cultural topics, illustrates a variety of ways to say something, and is generally very organized and punctual. She has been very accommodating to my requests and helping me learn in a way that works for me. Since I had my own study materials before I started lessons with her, she has worked with me to practice the material I studied already. I would definitely recommend her.
Alexandria
Wonderful instructor. We look forward to continuing lessons later this year. She was very professional and made my 15 year old daughter comfortable with learning Chinese. She tailored the lessons to fit her aptitude. I would highly recommend her. She also met us at the local community center which was very helpful logistically.

I was born and raised in Germany and have always loved languages and different cultures. During my years of schooling, I was lucky enough to study four languages and over my 25 years teaching career, I have taught three. German however, is by far my favorite, as it connects me to my heritage and a beautiful tradition in literature and music. I love working with students of all ages and have taught German to children of elementary school ages all the way to the college level, where I taught German as a Senior Lecturer for thirteen years. I have also tutored adults privately on an on-going basis. I simply love learning.
Here is an excerpt of a recommendation by a former colleague:
"Both in and outside of class, Ms. LaVoie was a pleasure. Colleagues appreciated her kind demeanor, thoughtful contributions, and collegial character. Students, likewise, recognized Ms. LaVoie’s compassion and sincerity. Of their teacher, one student wrote, “Professor LaVoie is one of the most caring and ...

Frau LaVoie is an incredible German teacher. She was my professor at Whitworth University and I thoroughly enjoyed her class. She challenges her students to go deeper into learning German while continuously supporting them along the way.
Tessa
Frau LaVoie was my German professor at Whitworth University. She always made class fun and the language easy to learn and understand. She taught songs and poems in order to give the language a beauty that others might miss. It was because of her teachings and encouragement that I was able to spend a year abroad in Germany and become fluent in German.
Sarah
Frau LaVoie is an amazing and empathic teacher. She easily recognizes each student’s ability and confidence level and reaches out to them in the appropriate manner. I have never learned more than when in her class.

"Oyamada Sensei is very good at finding a student's skill level and tailoring his instruction to improve the skills and challenge the limits of the student, which has quickly spurred me on to dramatic improvements in my Japanese ability after only 3 lessons. He also makes it fun by playing to the interests of the student and keeping the sessions light and full of humor. Highly recommended if you want to work hard, have fun, and learn Japanese!"
