Instructor is very energetic and enthusiastic. Conversation is interesting, and she stops to make necessary corrections to my Spanish.

Esther is a great teacher and I highly recommend her, especially to those who want to improve their fluency and to those (like me) who are just too afraid to start speaking Spanish. Lessons with her are always fun and interesting, and she always knows how to explain everything in a simple and understandable way!

About Laila

My name is Laila. I am a mother of four children ages 22,20,18&13. I have BS in Computer Science and MA in Accounting. In addition, I am a reading therapist . I run an online reading clinic for dyslexic students to help them with their literacy struggles.

I'm bilingual English/Arabic, and while I was raising up my children, I gave them Arabic private lessons for many years. They never liked the traditional methods their tutors used. Because of my experience with teaching children and my fluency in both languages, I came up with an interesting way of teaching children the language through fun activities, conversations, books, apps and many more. Learning Arabic will not be boring, but rather fun and easy.

About Allyssa

I've been speaking Spanish for a little over 14 years. In my lessons I mostly teach conversational Spanish and English. By the end of this course, you will be conversational! You'll be able to understand others, speak, and most importantly you will be understood when you speak.

I look forward to meeting you! No learner is too young/ old to start learning a foreign language. Start your lessons today!

Llevo poco más de 14 años hablando español. En mis clases, principalmente enseño ingles y español conversacional. Si tomas lecciones conmigo, te daré el enfoque simple que la mayoría de los instructores no pueden. Al final de este curso, ¡serás conversador! Podrá comprender a los demás, hablar y, lo que es más impor

tante, lo entenderán cuando hable.

¡Espero conocerte! Ningún alumno es demasiado joven / viejo para comenzar a aprender un idioma extranjero. ¡Comience sus lecciones hoy!

Allyssa makes Spanish lessons fun for my child and always gives me a re-cap after each lesson of what they did and how she is progressing. She also gives us tips and a place where she can get more practice.

My name is Pascale. I am a native French speaker, born in Versailles. I graduated from the University of Paris with a Master’s degree in Education and now live in the United States, in Nevada. I have been teaching 20 years in a multi-faceted environment including one-on-one tuition, and in the classroom. I am capable of teaching at all levels from elementary school to university, using a palette of techniques leading to easy assimilation of the language by the student.

I can also create specialized courses for those who have professional goal

s.
My lessons focus on the four aspects of language learning for everyday life: Listening and speaking, reading and writing.

I started to teach in France in elementary schools. When I moved in United States, I worked as a French substitute teacher in high schools. In order to enrich my professional experience, I taught at college-level and worked for foreign language institutions providing immersion programs to children, and adults. Concurrently, I have been tutoring High School students, in collaboration with their teachers, to help them improve their skills, grades and self-confidence in the language.

About Nicholas

My name is Nicholas Jones, I was born in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. I always had a passion for teaching, but as any good teacher one must first learn. I studied English as a second language and today have a bachelors degree in professional communication from a US based university. I keep in constant contact with peers, friends and family and travel to visit them often, keeping my Russian current. Aside from having professional language skills working as a translator, for an American based company and for a Russian entrepreneur, I know the culture and mannerisms and as any good language course should teach would include them in the plan. Most of all I can be very flexible in my teaching style, if getting to a goal is what you are looking for, that is a direction I can be comfortable with, strictly business. If you are on the other hand, loo

king for an easy time and to learn as much as you can before fully committing, for example, we can have an easy going, learn at your own pace type of environment. Please just let me know what you are looking for and we can agree on what is the most comfortable scenario for you.

Troy
"Have been studying with Marcia for a couple of months now. She is amazing and truly look forward to my lessons with her!"
Frank
"I cannot say enough about Prof. Marcia. I studied with her for two year and what
struck me as perfect was her ability to structure the class exactly t
o your needs and do this for each student. The classes were a perfect mix of different media and a blend of both grammar and practice. It was a big loss for the school and for me when Prof. Marcia left Los Angeles. Anyone looking to learn portuguese on any level needs to look no further."

Parker
"Very positive demeanor, which helps to learn when you might feel bad or self-conscious for butchering grammar/pronunciation, and fun to talk to. As a nati
ve speaker of Czech, she has a slight accent yet isn't difficult to understand, only had to stop to ask her for clarification two or three times over the course of an hour. Good pacing, was not overwhelmed but still remained engaged.

Before our first session even began, she was already helpful in providing some suggestions for culture to look up, such as popular artists in certain genres of music.

Then at the end of our first session,
she left me with a few straightforward assignments to learn from until our next lesson.

I've had a great first impression. I'll see where things go in the future. Děkuju, Eliška!"
