About Joy

Want to learn to speak Spanish? Sign ASL? I would love to be a part of your journey! I am a patient, and friendly person, who is passionate about language learning!

SPANISH: I use my own personal learning experience mixed with a communicative approach to create a teaching method for my Spanish students. My Spanish teaching method focuses on the development of these four skills: speaking, listening, reading, and then writing. Do you have specific goals? Great! Or are you learning just to be able to speak any and all that you can? Awesome! I teach beginner and intermediate and am a conversation partner and tutor for students more advanced! Also be prepared to be challenged to get involved with the Latin American culture around you!

ASL: My lessons will give you a strong foundation in Sign, and then a few training wheels until you fee

l confident in what you know, and can converse about various real-life topics. My teaching method utilizes much of Deaf professor Dr. Bill Vicars' approach--with signed conversation in each lesson beginning with high frequency concepts. Each lesson is full of new signs, grammar, conversation, Deaf culture tidbits, and more.

About me:
I fell in love with language when in 2010 I lived, studied, and worked abroad in Colombia, South America. There I studied Spanish, worked with Deaf students, and taught Spanish speakers English. It was such an enriching experience that upon returning to the USA, I decided to fully surround myself with culturally diverse individuals and continue my learning journey.

One of the major differences between learning a language in a classroom and having a personal instructor is that one-on-one help you will receive --- specific to your level, learning style, and language goals. I will help you stop feeling nervous, renew your motivation, and get you communicating in a new language in no time!!

Joy accurately assessed our daughter’s abilities and catered each lesson to engage, as well as challenge her. Our daughter enjoyed her online sessions, where she not only gained conversation experience, but also expanded her vocabulary and conjugational skills. She will be starting this school year with greater confidence in her Spanish class. Thank you so much for all your help, Joy, and we look forward to more lessons with you!

About Victoria

Hello, I'm Victoria. I'm a native Californian, and a graduated of Graziado School of Business, Pepperdine University, Malibu CA, with a BA in Business Management and a MBA with a concentration in Finance and Entrepreneurship.

During my time in college, I was privileged to gain a great deal of knowledge from some extremely talented and dedicated professors. Their extensive knowledge in their field of profession, real life experiences and the pure honest desire to help others reach their educational goals inspired me. So much so, it inspired me to use my talents to teach as well.

It first started with preparing my nephew for school, he was about 3 at the time, and now I teach my nieces age 4 and 6. I am a strong believer in early education for setting the bases in future educational success. With the knowledge I have gain I inspire and

share my gifts through teaching and tutoring with an approach that makes learning fun.

I'm excited to play a part in helping students grow and reach their fullest potential. I'm flexible and open to parent or student suggestions and resources they can provide. Feel free to contact me if you need more information or you would like to schedule a lesson. I look forward to working with you!

About Aimee

I teach gospel piano and beginner piano, flute, chess and English/ESL.

Use your ears, use your fingers and all the other gifts God gave you to assist during your local worship service. I come from a long line (4 generations) of church musicians. I trained classically on piano and flute - and can teach the basics for both instruments across genres. I have also been a journalist for The Associated Press (gotta have a day job!). And have done grant writing work for nonprofits. I can help you improve your English writing and speaking skills. And I love to play chess (gotta have a hobby!). But when it comes to Gospel - you need a little theory and a lot of heart and soul to develop your musical ear! Come join me at my storefront church or we can meet up online. After you get the scales and common chord structures down, you'll be ready

to go!

About Timothy

I am a UC Berkeley graduate and TEFL certified. I love to teach and help others reach their goals. It would be my pleasure to help you learn and speak English in the most effective way!!

I made sure to include 15 minute lessons so that you would have an opportunity to meet with me before making a big commitment. I can provide formal and informal lessons (with corrections), for both kids and adults!

Teaching English online has become my passion. I've also made my lessons very affordable so that most people on "Taking Lessons" will have access to less expensive, high-quality English lessons.

I look forward to meeting you!!

About Cierra

Greetings Earthlings, class is in session. Ok time for our first POP QUIZ! See your questions below. (There is a right or wrong answer, but only you will know if it’s correct or not.)

Question 1.: Who are you?

Question 2.: Who or what did you want to be prior to any doubt of becoming that was brought to your awareness?

Question 3.: Does it bother you to have fun while learning? (This is not a trick question.)

Well, there you go. So, how did you do? Remember, only you can really answer these specific questions. When it comes to exploring self, which most of my lessons extends from, understanding and being honest with whom, what and where you are is the first step in opening yourself up to learning and evolving.

Learning should be fun an exciting. There’s also a sense of freedom that should come along with the power of obtaining new me

ntal tools for life. Your life.

"Jared gave brilliant, very easy-to-understand explanations of complicated Finnish grammar points; thank you, Jared! :)"
BARBRA
"First lesson was good, although we had some technical difficulties using Skype -- probably my fault not Valentina's -- and ended up speaking by phone. Onc
e we get that worked out, I expect to improve my conversational Italian, with special emphasis on conjugating verbs. So wonderful to speak with someone whose first language is Italian."

"I highly recommend Simona as an Italian teacher. She is patient, thoughtful, and uses a variety of tools and techniques, such as flashcards, online writte

Is My Child Ready to Learn Japanese? A Guide for Parents

By Maile Proctor

Want your son or daughter to learn Japanese, but not sure if he or she is ready? Here, Montgomery, TX language teacher Emily G. explains how you can determine if your child is ready to begin Japanese lessons... Even though I teach several languages, Japanese lessons are my favorite lessons. I love to see parents encourage their children to learn Japanese, however, this doesn't happen too often, and I can understand why. Between the writing systems and the pronunciation, Japanese can be i …
