I've had 5 lessons with Benedetta and she is fantastic. She focuses on technique which is so important for singers to master. I made progress after my first lesson and each week she teaches me something new. I highly recommend her and if you want results, she'll help you get to the level you want to achieve!

As a non-native speaker of English, I struggled to learn the English Language on my own. It was very difficult; however, with hard work and persistence, I managed to learn the language and became proficient at it. Furthermore, my experience in language acquisition led me to tutor students from various non-English speaking countries with difficulties in pronunciation, reading and writing, while pursuing my BA and MA at Brooklyn College University. I rose from my position as Tutor to a Master Tutor/Professor's Assistant. One of the biggest rewards to me is to be able to give back by making other's journey into language acquisition as easy and effective as possible.

About Catalina

Loving what I do is what makes me an effective and popular Spanish Teacher/Tutor. As a Native Speaker of the target language, I had to learn English. Having had that experience, has helped me to relate to the difficulty involved in language acquisition and to become more compassionate with my stu

Ms. Catalina is an excellent teacher. I was worried about taking Spanish online, and she made me feel comfortable from the first day. She is very patient, and her tutoring helped me to gain more confidence in my ability to understand and speak Spanish.

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.

I grew up in a tutoring business family and Mandarin Chinese is my mother tongue. Before I immigrated to the United States, I was a TV journalist in Taiwan. I also have my Master's from Georgetown University. I mastered Mandarin Chinese in both personal and professional dialects. I have been tutoring Math, English and Mandarin Chinese on and off for over 26 years. I adjust my teaching methods based on each student's personality to make the learning experience fun and easy. I'm also very fluent in English so I can explain the meaning of Mandarin characters better for students to understand easily. I believe language is a practical tool and learning Mandarin Chinese should be a joyful experience. I teach all levels from beginners to advancer, just tell me how you want to learn, and I will accommodate to your needs to help you learn Mandarin Chinese.

"I have been working with Jaqueline for about 8 months now, and can say that she is a very good teacher. She will focus on your strengths and use them to help you learn. She remains flexible to schedule needs and keeps good notes on your progress and what you have learned so far as well as where you are going. I need to learn Portuguese for my work and so she was very focused on keeping my lessons moving from the very basics to ultimately technical terms and meeting conversations. I don't believe I would be productive without her help."
