I was born and raised in Taiwan until I was 12, I've been able to keep up my Mandarin with my parents. I got a perfect score on the Chinese SAT II in 2016. I would be able to help with Traditional Chinese, whether you need help with school homework or conversational Chinese!

Maggie is an incredible teacher! My daughter has been taking lessons with her for 3 months now and she has improved so much. My daughter is in high school and has been playing for a few years now. She wanted to be more serious so we started taking lessons with Maggie. She has so much fun every lesson and I can hear her improve every time she practices after a lesson. Maggie makes playing the bass so fun. My daughter is always so excited and I can’t wait to see where this will lead to next.

Maggie has expert knowledge about the double bass from studying with members of the best orchestras in the US. Her teaching lead me to achieve things on the instrument that I didn't know I could do. I highly recommend her as a teacher!

Hello!

I'm a native from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I used to teach private Portuguese lessons. I taught for 3 years for adults and I had lots of students.

I had to stop to take care of my young children. Now, they are at school and I have been teaching kids since 2017. Almost 3 years.

I also started a blog which you can learn Portuguese.

I'm looking forward to start teaching Portuguese to you!

Thanks

Gisele

As an experienced ESL instructor, lessons can range depending on your needs. My experience includes teaching academic English courses of beginning and intermediate levels for various skills (listening, reading, writing, vocabulary/literacy, and grammar).

I have also tutored English privately, focusing on one-on-one instruction. In these sessions, I have worked closely with students to isolate and improve weak spots in their pronunciation, taught collocations and expressions (conversational and academic English), and concentrated on listening practice.

My graduate level certification and extensive teaching background has prepared me to teach you, regardless of your goals for improving your English!
