Take lessons with a native Spanish speaker! I have experience working with children and adults from beginner up to advanced levels. I specialize in grammatical and technical classes as well as conversational ones. I tend to follow a rather communicative teaching approach, motivating students to interact in real situations.

There’s nothing like the feeling of a good class, a class that was enjoyed by the teacher and the students, so I always try to create a bond between students so that classes are more customized. It also helps to develop confidence and promotes the use of Spanish in the class. It doesn’t matter the topic and the focus of the lesson, humor, laughter and little jokes are a must in all classes to break the ice and to make the class more pleasant.

I can't wait to get started!

With the current COVID-19 virus crisis, I have been shifting all my students to online classes. Check out my pictures to see my online classroom set up, or feel free to send me a message if you have questions! :)

Mandarin is a musical language that's quickly taking over the world, you'll have lots of fun learning this language.

I was born and raised in Singapore, and am fluent in both English and Mandarin. I can read, write and speak at a bilingual, native proficiency in English and professional proficiency in Mandarin.

I'll teach you depending on your level and age. For kids, I use fun, interactive storytelling. For the adults, I'll dive into concepts like the origins of the language, nuances of the intonations, all the while teaching you vocabulary and sentence structure. I'll also adjust my lessons based on your feedback, your learning style and your goals!

My 11 year old niece loves her ukulele lessons with Tammy. She is a beginner and was able to learn how to tune her ukulele and start playing songs after one week. Tammy provides all the lesson material and even short videos after each lesson to sum up what was learned and what should be practiced. I wasn't sure how remote lessons would turn out but so far everything has been great.

NEW!!! I am now offering 15 minute CHAT sessions. These are great for just chatting, brushing up on skills, etc. NO VOICE chat sessions! NO VOICE mentor session or quick practice sessions! Use them how you would like!

I've been teaching ASL for 23 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of ASL and Deaf culture! I am passionate about teaching, Deaf ministry, and ASL!

Within the first few lessons, you'll start signing simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to converse with people who are Deaf! You will also be learning about the culture of Deaf people at the same time.

PRACTICE PARTNER/SIGN COACH?
Nervous about meeting people who are deaf? Want to learn some tips to get over those first moments of nervousness? Do you just need someone to practice with? I would love to help you!

Some of my students book private lessons with me just to have someone to chat with and practice. The more you practice, the more confidence you will ...

I was born in Italy in a bilingual family. I grew up speaking Italian and Spanish, I then start learning English and German in school. When it was time to decide my education I had no doubts, I wanted to perfection my knowledge of English and Spanish. I decided to move to Milan to get my BA in Interpreting and Translation at IULM University. Becoming a translator gave me a unique insight of what languages and words are all about, what learning a language really means, and the realization that it is a lifelong process and commitment.

There's always something to improve, there's always something to learn, and that's the beauty about it.

I've tutored many people in the past 5 years and they all decided to start learning Italian or Spanish for different reasons. Depending on that reason I was able to create a specific program for them, something that would really make them reach their goals.

I have a lot of patience, I'm fun, I'm precise, and I take tutoring very seriously. ...
