I am a 62 year old person who had previously studied Spanish using Rosetta Stone and Duolingo. I started taking lessons with Georgina several years ago to provide a regular opportunity to engage in Spanish conversation. Our lessons have been free-flowing and she introduced me to a number of books written in Spanish which were not only helpful in further developing my knowledge of Spanish but were culturally enlightening as well. Georgina is easy to engage, a delightful person to know and an excellent instructor.

Anna is a fantastic Russian tutor! She is very friendly, incredibly kind, and knows everything from the nuances of Russian grammar to cultural topics.
Tyler
Very knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. It's abundantly clear that she has a plethora of experience with teaching the Russian language.
Kevin
Anna is a simply fantastic instructor of Russian. She has a plethora of resources at her disposal that she uses to great effect to help her students. We use a textbook in my class at the university, but Anna is able to supplement the textbook materials and explanations with her own materials. She is extremely patient and professional. I like that she really makes an effort to speak Russian all the time with students - even if we don't quite catch everything, it definitely helps to train our ears. She is extremely flexible and willing to work with students on whatever they think is the most pressing topic. Anna really revolutionized my own study of Russian and I am very grateful to her for all of her hard work.

Hello! I'm Efraín and teaching Spanish is one of my biggest passions in life. I can teach Spanish for everyday use to students at beginners’ and intermediate levels. I develop each lesson together with the students based on any previous exposure to the language they may already have as well their goals. I provide in-depth explanations on grammar while exposing them to useful everyday vocabulary and structures that actually allow them to effectively communicate with native speakers of Spanish in the most common situations. I also encourage students to use tools and methods outside the lessons that can help them speed up their progress and make them commit to a consistent and exciting learning experience.

About Efraín

I'm from Venezuela and besides being a Spanish tutor I'm also a former journalist who loves traveling. I've spent long periods of time in Spain, Ireland and The United States, and have also visited The Netherlands, France, Germany, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Slovakia, Lithuania, Russia, China and Hon

Recommend with my eyes closed. This instructor, Diana, is caring, smart, and genuinely interested in helping you learn. Always prepared! She wants you to feel comfortable and confident in learning a new language. I’ve recommended her already to all of my non-English speaking family and friends.

This experience was excellent. She took her time and explained everything until I understood it completely. I wish she taught more classes!

"This is only the second online lesson that I've ever had in Japanese. My first review that I gave to my former teacher was five stars. This one though, If I can give more than that I would but unfortunately five stars is the limit. Whoever is taking, or considering taking Japanese lessons with Aimi wont be disappointed. I'm in my 50's and Aimi would do anything to make sure that I would grasp the material. I'm 100 percent sure that she is equally outstanding teacher with younger students...And you, whoever you might be out there reading this review and willing to try learning Japaneses, go ahead and schedule a lesson with her; whether you are adult or young I'm confident Aimie will be the perfect fit."

She makes me feel like I am physically in Italy and learning not just the language, but also the culture. She uses her real life experiences, as a native Italian, to help me want to learn more about the language, culture, art, philosophy, food and all that is exciting about Italy. I look forward to my lessons with her and highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn Italian."
