I am hard of hearing, I am the only one that’s hard of hearing in the family, my first language is American Sign Language. American Sign Language is the most beautiful visual language in the world, today in this society a lot of people are eager to learn sign language. I love sharing my knowledge and my deaf culture with other people. I am a very funny person including when I teach, it will entertain you and you will never be bored to learn with me. I can teach you from beginners to advanced. We could do zooms or Skype. My students always learn so quickly with me because I always find their rough areas in where they need help learning.

I look forward to meeting you and see you become successful!

Hello, friends, My name is Faik and I am from Turkey. I am a software engineering student who loves studying, drawing and learning new things. I am 18. I love animes Asian culture and Japan of course. By the way, I am currently studying Japanese. We had an English preparation class last year and I realized that I loved learning new things and teach them to other people. I believe that we can easily have a good conversation in both Turkish and English. I have finished my preparation year as the best student at my university. So that English is not a problem for me anymore. About Turkish it is the same, it is already my native language but there is another reason. my parents are Turkish Literature Teacher and they have been teaching Turkish for 25 years. I can say that my grammar in Turkish is quite perfect thanks to my dad. If you would like to have a good time while learning Turkish or English, give me a shot and you will be impressed.

I really enjoyed my 1st meeting with Paul. He helped me to feel confident about learning to play the saxophone. I look forward to my next lesson.

Paul is so great! I'm an adult learning the alto saxophone with almost no prior music experience. He is patient with my many questions, very encouraging, highly skilled (as a musician and instructor), and fun to be around! The majority of our lessons are online and that is working well too.

"I started taking lessons about a month ago and so far it has been a very positive experience. My Japanese is at the intermediate and conversational level and I reached out to Sensei Yoshi to help me take my skills to a higher level. The teaching materials are very effective and Yoshi is very knowledgeable and supportive and is correcting my grammatical errors, which is exactly what I need. I signed up for 2 months' worth of lessons to start and will probably continue 3times a week for at least six months. I highly recommend Sensei Yoshi."

"I've been taking online classes with Ana for several months. Ana is my 4th Spanish instructor and by far the best. Ana tailors her lessons to her students' needs and mixes her lessons with fun exercises and Spanish popular culture such as movies, videos, and online articles. Ana is very patient but also holds her students accountable -- to me a great combination when learning a language. I would highly recommend Spanish lessons with Ana."
