Pedro is a very good tutor. He is patient and explains the subject matter well. The student was comfortable with him and therefore was able to ask questions whenever it was needed. I appreciated Predro's schedule flexibility as well.

I had no idea how lucky I would be to find Pedro. I am an interior designer learning Autocad and having no prior experience with the program, Pedro made it totally accessible. He is a phenomenal teacher and is so kind and patient. He provides foundational rules at the beginning of each session and has clear goals mapped out for every step of the way. We have done a number of exercises that I did not think would be possible for me to accomplish at this point. I am so grateful to have found him and highly recommend him!!!!!

Keith is an amazing teacher. My 7 year old son likes him very much. Before the lessons I worried our boy couldn’t build his interest in playing piano, just lose his enthusiasm after a while as the 7 years old always did. But Keith make me totally worry free, my son likes him very much, and he really knows how to build the kid’s interests and confidence while learning. Now my son enjoyed himself very much with Keith in their piano time. We are so lucky to find Keith.

We had four in-home lessons with Keith and he never once arrived on time. And not like 5 minutes late because of bad traffic or something. Once he was 40 minutes late, and another time he was 45 minutes late. For an hour lesson. At first I though there was some confusion because the time on take lessons was slightly different than the time we agreed to (he asked if we could start earlier than the time slot that was listed, and I agreed) but after speaking with him about it, we were both on the same page as to what time the lesson *should* begin, he just never arrived on time. He seems to be very overbooked and busy and does not respect his clients’ time. He told me that the disparity of arriving on time or a half hour late is “superfluous,” so if you hire him, be prepared to have a wide window of when he could show up. My kids liked him as a teacher, which is why I kept giving him chances and trying to work out scheduling issues (I offered to move our lessons to a different time, but he insisted the time we were at was fine) but in the end, things could not be resolved.

Giuliana is a wonderful teacher and guide for Italian language and culture. I really enjoyed our small class and she managed our different levels of experience very gracefully. We all learned a great deal over the course of a year together and we miss her immensely!

Giuliana is the most patient and encouraging teacher that I have yet encountered. She truly strives to make Italian entertaining as well as simple. Prior to my lessons with her, learning a whole new language seemed to be a daunting task, as well as the seemingly insurmountable goal of losing my native accent while speaking. Through our online lessons, she has taught me grammar and a vast vocabulary that served me very well in my trip to Italy. If there is one teacher who can truly teach the language quickly and easily, it's Giuliana.

Bgcheck Background Checked


My Hindi classes provide the social, political and philosophical contexts of the prose or poetry at hand. Each class is well-structured according to individual needs and paced accordingly too. I often tell interesting facts about the language and everyday life in northern India.

My students feel at ease and look forward to their classes because they are interesting and heavily incorporate things that they relate to. This way Hindi literature remains contemporary and relevant to new generations of readers.

My teaching style is inviting of student participation, supportive and gentle. I work best with individuals aged twelve years and up.

About Shuchi

Teaching Hindi since 1988 when I was a teenager myself, my classes are exciting, replete with interesting information about the people of northern India that it represents. I studied Philosophy (honours) at the University of Delhi, India. I opted for advanced Hindi studies consistently throughout m

we approached Shuchi Ma'am for Hindi classes as I was poor in that topic and it was an important Final Board exams for me and the marks were crucial. She was very helpful in clearing my concepts and dispelling phobia for Hindi. She has lot of patience and passion for the language. Thanks to her I secured high scores in my final exams.

Shuchi taught my daughter and was a perfect fit for her. Shuchi has impeccable command over both Hindi and English . My daughter's spoken and written Hindi improved leaps and bounds under her tutelage. Would recommend Shuchi to everyone who is struggling in Hindi as a school subject or wants to improve their spoken Hindi.

"I have been taking lessons from Claudia for almost four months and my experience with her has been outstanding. Claudia is an excellent teacher who takes her student's goals and truly makes them her own. When I told her that my goal was to learn Spanish to a conversational level, she described to me what I would need to do in order to obtain that goal.

Here's what I think makes Claudia unique:

* Carefully planned out teaching method. She has a carefully planned out method for teaching Spanish and uses quality materials. She has garnered the best materials and supplemented them with her own. She teaches Spanish in a logical sequence where each step includes material from the previous ones. This has helped me to reinforce the concepts I learned earlier.

* My lessons with her include a mix of grammar, speaking, and listening. It's much easier for me to understand written Spanish than to understand the spoken word or to speak it myself. Claudia makes a point in each lesson to practice speaking and listening to help with this. This has probably been the biggest help to me so far.

* She provides homework customized to my level so I can practice between sessions. Sometimes the homework is an audio recording that she has recorded herself especially for me. The fact that she does this shows how much she cares about her student's success.

* Her patience. She has to be the most patient person I've ever met. Sometimes it takes a while to get a concept or to understand, but she is always happy to repeat herself or slow down. There have been more than a few sessions where she has done this a lot!

* Her encouragement. Learning a new language can be frustrating at times but Claudia is always encouraging and celebrates even the smallest progress.

It seems like there are a lot of Spanish teachers out there who know how to speak Spanish, but I think there are very few who really know how to teach it. Obviously Claudia is a native speaker of Spanish, but she is also an expert teacher. I feel fortunate to have found her and have referred other students to her. I can't recommend her highly enough!"
