Keith was a good teacher to our son, he was patient and kind. Our son learned a lot from him, we hope in the future to use him again, if the opportunity arises. Thanks Keith!
Ying
Keith is an amazing teacher. My 7 year old son likes him very much. Before the lessons I worried our boy couldn’t build his interest in playing piano, just lose his enthusiasm after a while as the 7 years old always did. But Keith make me totally worry free, my son likes him very much, and he really knows how to build the kid’s interests and confidence while learning. Now my son enjoyed himself very much with Keith in their piano time. We are so lucky to find Keith.

We had four in-home lessons with Keith and he never once arrived on time. And not like 5 minutes late because of bad traffic or something. Once he was 40 minutes late, and another time he was 45 minutes late. For an hour lesson. At first I though there was some confusion because the time on take lessons was slightly different than the time we agreed to (he asked if we could start earlier than the time slot that was listed, and I agreed) but after speaking with him about it, we were both on the same page as to what time the lesson *should* begin, he just never arrived on time. He seems to be very overbooked and busy and does not respect his clients’ time. He told me that the disparity of arriving on time or a half hour late is “superfluous,” so if you hire him, be prepared to have a wide window of when he could show up. My kids liked him as a teacher, which is why I kept giving him chances and trying to work out scheduling issues (I offered to move our lessons to a different time, but he insisted the time we were at was fine) but in the end, things could not be resolved.

My pedagogy is constructivist and interdisciplinary . This means students learn Spanish not just from textbooks and exercises but mostly from using and practicing the language through the arts and through their personal experiences with it. Poems, music, plays, movies, podcasts, voiceover, and many other art forms are the main resource of knowledge and go hand in hand with a technical review by the instructor.

Victor has been tutoring me Spanish for a few months now, and I cannot recommend his classes highly enough. Each class is tailored to expand vocabulary and confidence in speaking, ranging from every day conversations to learning cultural nuances and perfecting the accent. Victor is incredibly enthusiastic and makes the classes challenging and fun! I definitely recommend his tutoring services to anyone wanting an introduction to Spanish, to fine-tuning their fluency.
Kelsey
Víctor is a very generous and patient teacher! He does such a good job of catering the curriculum to your skill level and interests.

I was just looking to learn a new language since all my kids are out of the house. I took spanish in highschool but all I could say is “ hola como estas “ and “queso”. Thanks to Victor I was able to read 100 Years of Solitude in spanish and I can watch casa de las Flores without subtitles. I am booking a trip to Colombia in September with my husband. I can’t wait to be his guide all thanks to Victor!

Would you like to prepare for your next vacation? Do you need to learn German for your new job, or do you just want to improve your skills you've learned in school?

As a native German I can teach you German on a high level! The best way to do that is starting with a simple conversation. Learning through talking, gestures and pictures is the most natural and easy way to be successful in a new language!

As I'm from Hanover I speak the cleanest German with no accent at all! My knowledge of grammar and syntax will help you to learn the 'correct' German!

I have a good teaching experience about 20 years.I am Ph.D in Hindi Language and Literature. I am certified for teaching Hindi as a subject and as well as a language from a recognized University . I believe Hindi as an international language improving itself day by day with the richness of it's grammar , vocabulary and usage. Basically it starts from Barahkhadi and the two types of Varnas like Swar and Vyanjan . The uniqueness of matras and the pronunciation of vyanjan , make this language really different. It seems difficult but as a teacher I have my uniqueness to teach you in the manner by which it will be very easy , adoptable and of course interesting .

"I had the pleasure of having Joneide as a Portuguese language for a few different courses at Brazil in Chicago. She was a great teacher who made every class exciting and different. She was very organized and came to class each week with a lesson plan as well as different materials and activities to help us as we learned the Portuguese language. Although she made each class fun, she also challenged us by making sure we engaged in as much Portuguese dialogue as possible. She also made sure to correct our pronunciation so that we said each word correctly, which was something I was really grateful for. Also, aside from being a great instructor she was very friendly and made you feel comfortable asking any questions in the class setting. She also taught us a lot about the Brazilian culture and even did a cooking demo during one of our last classes, making Pão de queijo (Brazilian Cheese Bread) for our class!"
