My background as a singer and speaking voice expert has allowed me to help many not native English speakers gain confidence! I also work with regional accents to help "neutralize" . Bet you can't tell I'm from Chicago: I got rid of MY OWN accent through vowel work!

About Molly

I’ve had the chance to learn from some of the greatest, and I am STILL learning from ‘em! I think anyone can and should sing. Why? Simple. Singing is FUN . Singing is FREEING. You’ve got a voice- why not use it, and as often as possible? Your voice is unique and capable of soooo many cool thi

She makes you feel comfortable, an abundance of information to help you get out of your shell. It's great to see someone genuinely passionate of what they do. If you are a beginner don't hesitate and book a lesson, you are in good hands. Learned so much this first lesson and can't wait to learn some more!

Ni hao! My name is Shanshan , I was born in Mainland China and finished my bachelor’s degree at Nanjing University of Aeronautics & Astronautics. I have completed my master’s degree at Southeast Missouri State University with an emphasis in Higher Education Administration. My written and spoken Chinese are both excellent. I have owned the first prize in the Chinese Youth Calligraphy Competition and got Grade B of the first class in the Certificate of Putonghua Proficiency Test.
Since I can remember, I have always had aspirations to be a Chinese teacher. I like the idea of passing on my knowledge to a new generation of pupils. English is my second language, in my college years, I used to work in cram School to teach elementary school students the basic level of language, including listening, reading, speaking, and writing and always love to try different ways to help students to learn Chinese. My teaching style is to make the course of study happier and easier. Let’s study and ...

I'm very happy with my teacher. She is very patient and sweet teaching. Of course I recommend her to anyone who really wants to learn.
She is also a teacher in the Bolingbrook library, but I continue to choose my time alone with her.
Thank you Elizabeth for your dedication!

Profile_31787_pi_mariella
"Brilliant instructor, fun and memorable exercises make it a class to look forward to. The improved atmosphere in learning with Mariella has allowed me to attain a more rapid progress that was conversationally and occupationally useful much sooner than I anticipated. Working with an instructor one on one also helps greatly decrease anxiety of learning when you will need to try your new skills on others who may not know you well if at all. The lessons she gives, along with the adjuncts on learning recommended, provide an efficacious and complete Spanish learning system where the goal you personally desire will be obtained, be it for travel, occupational, or cultural purposes. I cannot get over how many years I've studied Spanish using books and computer programs and audio CDs in the car, but then to make more progress in a short time than I had over years locks in that speaking high quality Spanish will be in your future if you continue with this instructor and follow her careful guidance."
