About Randy

I have always been an actor first, it is the craft and discipline in which I hold my advanced degrees; it is my first and eternal love. There really isn't much more one could add to such a claim. Simultaneously I have believed a teacher is born, not bred; and I was born to be in theatre, and now, w

Randy is a first rate coach. He is knowledgeable, experienced, and with an easy going natural style. Was very adaptable to my level of experience and was patient - no question was too dumb. I highly recommend him without any reservation. I have already booked my next session.

The best part of my tutoring is to give a good start for beginners. It will be the easy way. Students will be led step by step to gain knowledge and skills in speaking, reading, writing, and grammar issues as well. An easy start gives an easy way to go.

About Sergey

As I speak two languages English and Russian, I can teach both. Russian is my native language, so students can learn Russian from the native speaker. And that is the best way to learn foreign languages. I've been teaching Russian since 2010 and I use my own method, which is not like in boring books

I have known Tamari professionally for fifteen years.
She is an excellent music teacher for piano and voice. Her expertise is noticeable as she patiently meets her student at his/her level and guides that student to the next step.
The process is perfect for any student, even if developmentally challenged and for any age. I highly recommend Tamari.

I've been consistent weekly taking yoga lessons from Tamari at the Y in Canaan CT. I try not to miss it. She's a compassionate and caring yoga teacher and will trailer her classes to fit your needs. Her classes are good for newbies and seniors and those who want a simple class. No athletics. Hatha Yoga are basic yoga stretches that will make you feel good after participating . My aches and pains are gone after each session. To be continued....

Tamara is a very highly qualified, and extremely capable musician and instructor. While away on a leave from my position as music director at a local church, Tamara planned and provided the music for services, and led the congregation's music programs in my absence. While I was away, it was a great comfort to know that Tamara provided quality music for each service. In addition to demonstrating an extraordinary level of musicianship, Tamara is a dependable, and dedicated professional. I am pleased to provide my strongest recommendation!

"Aksana is exactly what I hoped for in a Russian instructor. She has helped me fine tune my Russian skills and understand and practice difficult grammatical concepts that have gone by the wayside since studying Russian in college (3 years ago), and improve my conversational fluency. The lessons are always challenging and fun! She customizes the lesson to my interests and is always prepared, patient, and kind. Not only did Aksana come to the lessons with native fluency, a linguistics degree, and many many years of experience teaching Russian to English speakers -- she has supplied a fantastic textbook, and the links to hundreds of online Russian-learning resources to supplement my learning. I highly recommend Aksana as a teacher - she will meet you wherever your language skills and needs are!"

Although I didn't expect her to know medical Korean terminology, she has gone out of her way to research terms to teach me how to use them properly. She will work with your needs and ways of learning. She is patient and very respectful.

"Karin is truly the best German instructor ever. The most important thing to me is that Karin helps me feel comfortable and confident in at not only reading and understanding German, but also speaking German. I am encouraged and helped at just the right level so I really know that I am learning how to read, write, and speak German in a German speaking country. But there are so many other things as well. The materials she uses are excellent. I get a copy of all the things she types during out on line learning sessions which helps me really learn and remember the German in the lesson. Karin has also sent me other materials such as useful phrases that I could use in situations in another country such as how to order and pay for food in a restaurant, how to tell the clerk what you want when reserving a hotel room, etc. In addition, I can always email Karin if I have a question or concern and Karin responds very quickly. At first, I was concerned that on-line lessons would not be as effective as a classroom lesson face to face. Karin immediately made me feel comfortable learning on line. Now I feel that I am getting more attention and personal one-on-one help more than I would ever get in a classroom. Karin is a really great German teacher."
