Hiromi is extremely helpful. It is so nice to have visual contact with her. She answers all of my questions that I have from studying on my own. When I am stuck on a problem, she clears it right up for me. She is a natural. I’m glad to have found her as my Japanese Teacher 👩‍🏫

About Jaleh

Since my childhood, I have always been fond of the French language and culture in such a way that French has become part of my identity. From the first day of preschool to the last day of high school, I studied at a French school. Therefore, I grew up appreciating together this new world with that of Persian tradition. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in French at the Ohio State University where at the same time I worked as a Graduate Teaching Associate instructing French courses for 6 years. For nearly twenty years, I have taught French at various language institutions as well as to private students. I can help you with anything relating to the French language.

About Carmen

I am an experienced bilingual professional teacher and communicator. I am a native of Brazil with a wide breadth of experience and passion for the Brazilian and American cultures and their languages (Portuguese-English).

The experience of living in other countries has given me great cultural flexibility and has made me a more open-minded person.

My work consists of teaching, guiding and coaching students from around the globe with Brazilian Portuguese. I help them in all aspects of breaking the language barriers. I work with all language skills and methods, yet my main specialty is making students speak and communicate well in Portuguese. I work directly on their speech and its construction through the Communicative Approach along with modern technologies. I customize my students experience according to their main goals and I have man

y success cases. I love what I do :)

As always an amazing lesson. I really appreciate how the homework and lessons are tailored to both my personal interests as well as my Portuguese goals, and I can tell I am improving rapidly under her mentorship. Thank you!

Our lessons have become one of the things I look forward to every week. Carmen is amazing and if you want to learn Portuguese you won't find anyone better!

One of the amazing things about Professora Carmen is that during our lessons I will often times ask a question about something I am stuck on or curious about, and she will flawlessly use my question as a teaching moment. As an example, I mentioned how in a song I heard a phrase that didn't make sense to me. 15 minutes later we had use that phrase to help me learn more about Brazilian culture, grammar, and different meanings to similar words. Honestly one of the best teachers I have ever had in my 16+ years of schooling!

About Cierra

Greetings Earthlings, class is in session. Ok time for our first POP QUIZ! See your questions below. (There is a right or wrong answer, but only you will know if it’s correct or not.)

Question 1.: Who are you?

Question 2.: Who or what did you want to be prior to any doubt of becoming that was brought to your awareness?

Question 3.: Does it bother you to have fun while learning? (This is not a trick question.)

Well, there you go. So, how did you do? Remember, only you can really answer these specific questions. When it comes to exploring self, which most of my lessons extends from, understanding and being honest with whom, what and where you are is the first step in opening yourself up to learning and evolving.

Learning should be fun an exciting. There’s also a sense of freedom that should come along with the power of obtaining new me

ntal tools for life. Your life.

"Nice teacher - organized and very responsive to parents also. My daughter enjoyed her first lesson"

"Mr. Soldan is a fantastic teacher and tutor. He has helped so much and I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn German online."
Kyna
"Eduardo has been an excellent teacher! I am a psychologist who has always had an interest in ASL and Deaf culture. I had taken some ASL lessons prior to b
eginning my online classes with Eduardo. I was signing around an intermediate level but I still had difficulty with expanding my ASL vocabulary, signing in ASL word order, appropriate use of facial expressions and being comfortable and confident with my signing. Eduardo has helped me in all of these areas. He is a patient and encouraging teacher but also knows how to challenge and help his students achieve their best! Eduardo is also great at individualizing and tailoring the lessons to meet his students' specific needs. For example, I have always want to to improve my signing so that one day I could be a psychologist who works with individuals in the Deaf community. Eduardo has tailored my lessons to help me learn new medical/psychology terminology in ASL. He also teaches me by guiding me through mock mental health/counseling sessions so that I can practice and get a feel for what it may be like to sign and converse with a Deaf patient. My signing has definitely improved with Eduardo's instruction. I highly recommend Eduardo!"
