Gerardo was fantastic. The soccer lesson was for my 12 year old great nephew. My own nephew, the 12 year old's father, was also there. From Gerardo's opening "hello" we knew that we were with an incredible teacher. First, Gerardo is a true master of soccer. He plays for SM College. His ability is impressive. Second, he knows how to teach. Many great players are not great teachers. Gerardo is. He knows how to motivate and bring out the best in the student. He is friendly, bright, respectful, and a true joy to work with. My nephew is a soccer manager and coach himself, and he was thoroughly impressed with Gerardo. I recommend Gerardo enthusiastically and without hesitation. If you need a soccer lesson, you will not find anyone better.

About Britta
My name is Britta, and I love piano and teaching! Music has brought great joy to my life, and it all started with the piano. I am eager to share that joy and power with you.

I started playing piano before I can remember and began lessons at age 5. I studied under my phenomenal teacher in Minnesota until I moved away when I was 18. I continued playing duets and quartets at her studio anytime I was back in Minnesota. I spent a few years living abroad and at college in Chicago. I taught first graders for a year at LEARN Excel Charter School in Chicago. Now I’ve relocated to Round Lake Beach, where I have a beautiful 80-year-old baby grand piano and a peaceful in-home studio.

When it comes to music, I think it's important to stay relaxed, push yourself, and have fun. Learning to play an instrument like the piano can be a very rich and
transformative experience for anyone. Whatever it is you're looking for in learning piano, I'm eager to help and share the gifts my teacher gave me.

About Yuexin
Hi! I am an undergraduate student at Colorado College, majoring in Comparative Literature and Music. I am from Shenzhen, China, and moved to the U.S. when I was 18.

I play the banjo, do all forms of arts, and have a never-dying crave for traveling. I lived in Brazil and Finland for a little while. I have a talent in learning new languages and am passionate about teaching them.

I have taught Chinese to people of all age. I specialize in teaching listening and speaking. If you would like to take lessons with me in person, then I am good at teaching reading and writing as well. My strength is in my patience for my students. I understand that learning a new language, especially Chinese, is not an overnight progress. As a language learner myself, I emphasize with the frustration, yet the excitement of learning the language and the cultu
re.

So trust me! Let yourself or your child be in good hands.

Ani is a wonderful teacher! I have always wanted to learn to play the Piano. But, it was my daughter who first started learning with Ani. It was evident that Ani is a higly skilled pianist. And I saw how much my child enjoyed the lessons, the easy rapport that was established and the wealth of knowledge that Ani brings. Needless to say, I signed up too! My daughter and I love our lessons and look forward to the class each week.

Ani is an amazing instructor. It is clear that she cares very much about her profession. I signed up for voice lessons, and she has been teaching me to read music and play the piano because it all ties together. She is also getting me to a point of independence so that I can practice at home with ease. I just love how peaceful and non-judge-mental she is... I have learned lots and I am very happy I found her :)!

About Anatoly
Even hard working and learning are the best jnly with a hearted honest smile. One of the best ways to master foreign language is through the local culture (folclore) and hillbilly music. Both are international as some kind of the borderless instrument. One should learn letters and musical notes but without studying of the approaches to harmony he could hardly approach to the balance The instrument is plain but hardly understandable alone. Together we can master everything!

The Ultimate Guide to Major Japanese Dialects
If you live in the United States, you’ve probably noticed that someone from New Jersey doesn’t speak the same way as someone from California. This is because of dialects, or forms of language developed and used in specific regions. These dialects differ not only in accent but in vocabulary, grammatical structure, and slang (from “y’all” in the South to “hella” in Northern California). The same is true in Japan. A majority of Japanese students are familiar with the type of Japanese spo
