Bgcheck Background Checked


I first heard Spanish from my dad who's Colombian, so my lessons focus on communication via dynamic task-based activities! First you discover grammar functions & the meaning of vocab through simple comprehension activities. Then we practice these new items through conversation questions or communication activities that simulate real-life tasks like ordering food, asking for directions, or describing a person. This creates a fun atmosphere for learning and gives students ample opportunities to speak! I also like to use multimedia like videos, pictures and powerpoints to make lessons more interactive, especially online lessons! For beginners, I use the book Spanish Demystified or Easy Spanish Step by Step as a learning resource and to provide grammar homework.

Besides speaking, my lessons also cover the other aspects of a language: Reading, writing and listening comprehension. I target those skills with activities such as short readings & writing assignments for homework, and themed ...

About Christy

I was exposed to Spanish throughout my childhood from my dad who is from Colombia, and from my great Spanish teachers. After minoring in it at college, I perfected my fluency from living in Spain for 2 years and studying it for 18 years! My adventures with the language led me to pursue an MA in Spa

I need some patience for sure because I'm SO self critical I can block my own progress. Christy is great, patient and so far, is bringing my conversational spanish out of its shell.

I appreciate her willingness to accommodate me and my schedule and, although I have only had 1 lesson so far, can feel that I am already growing in knowledge and confidence. I really like that she gives me assignments I can work on between lessons so that I can make the most of my lesson time with her.

I was born in China and finished my ninth grade there. The school is quite prestigious in terms of academic level. I then finished high school in the United States and earned my Bachelor Degree in Chemistry and Violin Performance at Oberlin College and Conservatory in Ohio. My fluency in both languages will make learning Mandarin much easier and more fun.

Bgcheck Background Checked


I grew up in the German part of Switzerland. I was exposed to the language throughout my schooling years. In my professional life as a doctor's assistant and later CEO assistant I needed to communicate daily in the German language. I studied business for 3 years. Over the last 3 years I have taught numerous people German. Some only need a little guidance, others keep on coming back to master more fluent conversation.

I'm flexible with my time and willing to adapt to my students' needs.

About Karin

Karin is an amazing instructor. She makes learning German fun. I started with no knowledge of German and she has helped me tremendously in a few lessons. I am heading to a German Immersion camp next week and she has made me feel prepared.

Karin is an amazing instructor. She is patient and very helpful. I am a beginner in German and can already form sentences and understand quite a bit in only my third lesson!

Laura
Karin is great! I don't know any other language but English. She teaches at a good pace, always checking to see if I understand, and willing to repeat words and phrases until I am comfortable. She did a great job of teaching the foundation of sentence structures, vowels and consonants, and proper use of casual vs. formal - which helped me jump right into the lesson. And she gives great feedback! I'm excited for my next lesson! Danke Karin!

I studied in the Dominican Republic for several years and I visited Spain for 2 months. My family is Hispanic and having been able to speak three languages (English, Spanish and French) has been amazing. I’m really looking forward to being able to share my knowledge and help you become a fluent Spanish speaker.

About Amanda

Zelda is a fantastic singing teacher. I felt a good vibe when I read her bio. I started out doing a half hour lessons and changed it to hour long lessons on the first lesson. She has helped me advance in my skills. She makes it relaxing, right off the bat, when you walk in and she offer's you tea. She is very patient and helpful. I've taken five lessons and signed up for five more.

"About Mojy : She is just Perfect.I agree with other comments. I had 3 courses with her. "Farsi", Dari, and Cultural cooking. First off, She is an adorable person. An amazing, humbel, and intelligent instructor who knows multiple languages and the region culture. Her knowledge of professionally cooking and baking Persian food, Mediterranean food, Middle Eastern food, Persian Gulf style Sea Food, and her own-made recipes is a phenomenon.Teaching Dance is also a Plus. Her fabulous experience of teaching at DLI and Federal Government Language schools is a real PLUS.She knows what a student needs and how the student can reach their goals.You wanna know what is very important about Mojy?Let me tell ya: She has an extremely positive attitude and beautiful smiling face. She teaches you how to cook the food and have fun, too. Also, she is an author. She opened my eyes to a new window of how a Langue and it's people culture are twins. I dont know what I do without her! I never liked learning languages and different cultures before. Thumb up! Five Stars! Way to go, Mojy! You helped me to become completely prepared for my Farsi and Dari tests within two weeks of tutoring. You work efficiently and don't waste time but make sure that your student truly understands and knows every detail. Thanks, Mojy! You are a gem to the American language learners. Mojy (Mozhgan) is my favorite tutor I've had by far.You need a great Farsi Teacher/Tutor? Get Mozhgan Hudiburgh. You wont regret it...! Trust me."
