"I've been teaching Chinese for 15 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of Chinese culture, study abroad in Asia, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro!
Chinese language learning materials as part of an integrated curriculum designed to motivate students in non-native Chinese environments to start speaking Chinese.

My lessons are so unique because I am a very intuitive teacher. I customize my lessons in a way that my student really excels in the time that is with me. As a native Spanish speaker and I very knowledgeable to the areas of the language that might tend to be a little bit more complex for some students. I had been tutoring students for five years and I have seen my students raise their confidence and proficiency with their Spanish skills beyond what they though possible. Giving the right tools and resources to each students is key to their success.

If you are serious about learning either French or Arabic, this is the best instructor. She is dedicated and her method is excellent. In our Arabic lessons, we target different sources of information and the lessons are comprehensive. I have been taking lessons for over 2 months and I get even more motivated with every lesson.

"I have had the joy of learning Russian with Anna for more than three years. Through Anna's highly skilled teaching methods, motivation, and inspiration, I have moved from a complete beginner level to a level of advanced proficiency.

In addition to being exceptionally knowledgeable in the field of foreign languages and language teaching, Anna is extremely professional, compassionate, and patient. She is a teacher who sincerely cares about her students, and is determined to ensure their understanding of all material she introduces, including complex aspects of grammar and language usage. It is clear to see that she prepares every lesson with consideration and purpose, and dedicates a tremendous effort to making lessons interesting and fun.

In our lessons, Anna strongly emphasizes conversation and listening comprehension, as well as the thorough reading and analysis of demanding literary and scientific texts. She strives to create a familiarity with the Russian language which plays a fundamental role in achieving fluency. Anna's outstanding teaching methods and remarkable perseverance make seemingly impossible to understand grammar rules, as well as the structure and nuances of Russian easy to grasp and to apply to speech and writing.

It is a gift to be able to have a teacher like Anna. She is without question one of the most talented teachers I have ever met, and she has my highest recommendation to prospective students of Russian."
