Julia is an excellent teacher! I came away from first lesson thinking "maybe I can actually learn a new language"......I went in thinking "am I crazy to think I can learn a new language at my age"! Highly recommend Julia as your future teacher!

I've been teaching french for about 5years now and got experience teaching different level and ages. I studied different languages myself, I understand the obstacles that come with taking on a new language. Since I am a native french speaker I can help with grammar, vocabulary and especially pronunciation.

Tania is superb! I was very skeptical about online learning, but considering current circumstances we had no other choice. I wanted someone easy going, fluent, sufficient , knowledgeable and patient for my daughter. Tania has all the qualities mentioned above. We will be continuing our French journey into the world of language learning.

Hi students! I have over 14 years of experience in teaching English. I specialize in beginner/intermediate level English with a focus on pronunciation and conversational English. My lessons are creative, fun, and focus on YOU the student. I am interested in learning about your interests, assess your English needs, and make the learning experience enjoyable. When students are comfortable, they learn better. I use a lot of visuals, examples, and clear pronunciation when explaining things in English. I also love to smile and make my students laugh.

About Dara

I've been a professional ESL teacher for almost 15 years. I worked with many students from around the world and learned a lot from them. I love meeting people from different countries and cultures. Besides teaching, I'm an author of two books, I love to craft and make things out of recycled items!

I have experience teaching and working with children as well as with adults. I feel comfortable teaching students in all different levels, from the beginner up to the advanced level. The typical approach that I use is a rather communicative one. I like to encourage students to speak and get engaged in real life situations.

I like to know my students, who you are and what your interests are so that I am not just your teacher, but also a friend. I like to think that I am a humorous person and it always makes me feel great when we can share a laugh or two in the class.

Come and join me!

"I am a retired school teacher so I know good teaching when I see it.
Maria is excellent. First, her techniques for teaching grammar along with vocabulary, bit by bit introducing the nuances needed to put sentences together in the proper fashion get students learning several things at once without actually realizing how much is being absorbed. Second, she supplies useful handouts to supplement the text as well as a multitude of on-line sources. I have used them often.
Last, her personality is extremely helpful for me, a slow learner! Her love for two countries, two ways of life, shows through and her uplifting personality makes the learning process fun. Obviously she is teaching a language but she is also teaching something of the Italian culture. It is apparent she very much wants students to learn and is willing to help those who learn slowly as well as those who have a “knack” for languages. I recommend her highly."

"The most important thing about teaching is reaching your students. You could have a world of knowledge locked away, but until you can learn to meet a student's needs and learning styles it will be just that, locked away. Marta has this quality of compassion and intuition about her students that separates her from your average teacher. She saw clearly what my needs and goals were and allowed me to find the solutions from inside myself. Many will attest to this fact. "She was my favorite teacher" is a very common remark from her past students even outside this platform. I observed my own enjoyment working with her as well as noticing her ability to integrate her teaching style with all kinds of students. For the fortunate to the most troubled Marta has a teaching quality that is frankly not found enough in the academic world. She is a teacher of the people and you would be lucky to learn from her."

"First lesson was good, although we had some technical difficulties using Skype -- probably my fault not Valentina's -- and ended up speaking by phone. Once we get that worked out, I expect to improve my conversational Italian, with special emphasis on conjugating verbs. So wonderful to speak with someone whose first language is Italian."

The Korean Future Tense Part 1 : Describing the Probable Future

As you progress in your Korean lessons, you will learn different ways to describe different events in the past, present, and future. Here's a look at the Korean future tense with Minneapolis, MN teacher Bryce J... Some linguists argue that there actually isn't a Korean future tense, but that doesn't mean there is no way to talk about future events. In fact,  there are actually five ways to describe the future in Korean: probable future, definite future, promissory future, intentional fu …
