Tony S.


Bgcheck Background Checked

NEW!!! I am now offering 15 minute CHAT sessions. These are great for just chatting, brushing up on skills, etc. NO VOICE chat sessions! NO VOICE mentor or quick practice sessions! Use them how you would like!

I've been teaching ASL for 21 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of ASL and Deaf culture! I am passionate about teaching, Deaf ministry, and ASL!
Within the first few lessons, you'll start signing simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to converse with people who are Deaf! You will also be learning about the culture of Deaf people at the same time.

Nervous about meeting people who are deaf? Want to learn some tips to get over those first moments of nervousness? Do you just need someone to practice with? I would love to help you!

Some of my students book private lessons with me just to have someone to chat with and practice. The more you practice, the more confidence you will have. Sign up

About Krisztina

Hi, there! My name is Krisztina and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2010. I love helping my students to learn how to play the violin, to be able to play their favorite tunes or helping them preparing for auditions for schools and ensembles. I went to the Liszt Aca

Ms.Krisztina is a joy to work with. My girls started with her at 5 & 6 and she worked so well with them. She has kept their interest since and has introduced new concepts in a way that isn’t overwhelming, but enjoyable and fun. She has a lot of patience with them and has a skill for drawing their attention to the violin & music.

Violin or viola, Krisztina was a very caring and nicest teacher I have ever had. Unlike myself she was always on time. Her friendliness made every lesson more fun while she really cared about her students and always been honest with her comments.
January 10, 2019
I would highly recommend Krisztina. She truly likes teaching violin. She goes beyond the call of duty. For example, she sends emails with her or other musician videos for practice at home, works over the allotted time if needed and if she is able to, sends texts and responds promptly.
My daughter was beginning to say she was getting less interested in violin and before I could say anything, Krisztina made my daughter excited about it again with new things to learn.
There is nothing negative to say. She is an excellent teacher.

No matter that you are a true beginner or someone who just wants to improve fluency, I can help you. I am a professional English and Spanish teacher with over ten years of teaching and tutoring experience. I also have over five years of online teaching experience. During these five years I have earned the the name of “Back-ups teacher” the reason being that I always have back-ups of everything. That is why in all these years I have never had to cancel a class due to computer issues or internet issues because I always have a second option. So if you book a lesson with me, you are sure to have your lesson at the appointed time.

What I can offer with my Japanese lessons is time spent that is unlike the traditional Japanese learning classroom. With me, there will be less of a strict schedule to follow and more flexibility to fit your needs. You will have the chance to practice and learn with someone who has the experience of learning Japanese from scratch and who understands the needs of those beginning the Japanese journey, rather than someone who has spoke it their whole life. These lessons will help build the foundation for learning Japanese, which you can use to grow and expand your learning in the future.

"Mirian is a great teacher! Super nice and funny. She takes the time to converse with you in Spanish without making you feel overwhelmed. She makes sure you're at the correct level and tailors lessons accordingly. I would definitely recommend Mirian if you wanted to learn Spanish in a welcoming environment."

"I teach at an elementary school in Ohio and I realized that communicating with my student's parents was difficult. A lot of them speak some English but they are still learning. I wanted to meet half way and found Rosita. She had the class perfectly structured with a good balance of grammar and conversing. And the conversations were catered to my needs for the school. Coming from a teacher Rosita is excellent.

Thank you!"
