About Joe
The guitar is an incredibly expressive instrument and a great bridge to music understanding. I believe strongly that we all have the ability to learn and understand music theory just like language, so my teaching style is based on uncovering talents that are already there waiting to be discovered. I focus on your questions and interests—starting with the songs you want to learn as a springboard for learning the patterns that make music work.

One of my biggest priorities is helping you feel confident and comfortable as we learn new concepts together, so my style is always friendly, casual, and centered around you. I hope we get the opportunity to learn together!

Joe has been teaching me Spanish and Guitar for the past two years, and I have nothing but good things to say. Music theory has always intimidated me, but he makes it approachable and fun. His conversational style of language instruction has helped me take the foundational Spanish that I learned in high school and apply it to every day interactions with native speakers. Joe is an invaluable resource to me. He's taught me so much, and I look forward to learning more from him in each lesson to come!

About Matthew
Dear Parents and Students,

May I be a personal tutor for you or your child? I have been successfully tutoring for over 12 years. I have great references, and I am one of the top tutors because I am so easy to work with. I teach in person, or via TakeLessons classroom, telephone, Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Join.me, Appear.in, Screenhero (remote desktop, screen sharing) interactive whiteboards, as well as email attachments (PDF, Word, Excel, etc.) I graduated with honors, Summa Cum Laude from Case Western Reserve University, where I made the Dean's List. I also earned a Provost Academic Scholarship for my excellent test scores, including 34 in ACT mathematics and 780 in SAT mathematics.

In addition to teaching for Cleveland schools, I currently teach 20 private sessions each week, 1st through 12th grade, as well as college stud
ents and business professionals. I have also served on the faculty at Cuyahoga Community College.

I am patient, friendly and many students tell me that I explain concepts more effectively than their teachers. I am available weekdays or weekends, days or nights, throughout the entire year. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have regarding my experience and teaching methods. While it should go without saying, I have a clean background that has been verified by the FBI and BCII. Let me know if you would like to set up an introductory lesson to design a customized strategy. There is no obligation to continue unless a customer is 100% satisfied.

I am one of the Top Five Tutors for:
1. most diverse subject matter
2. widest student age range
3. farthest geographical regions
4. largest client base
5. most hours taught monthly

Matthew was a great instructor for Intermediate level Excel training. He was able to help me with navigational tips and shortcuts, formulas and totals between sheets within one spreadsheet, as well as understanding Vlookup functionality. I highly recommend Matthew if you are in need of Excel training.

About Grace
An experienced, patient, sweet and funny Chinese tutor to all levels and ages, I have been teaching and tutoring Chinese language over 10 years. I am originally from China, a native Mandarin Chinese speaker with a master degree.
I studied in a law school, got my master degree and lawyer license, also passed the Mandarin Proficiency Test, achieved the College Teacher Certificate and worked in a college to teach law and culture related subjects when I was in China.
After came to America, I had taught in a university, and a language workshop for children. At present, I teach Chinese in a summer camp of a very good private school. So you see, my students are from toddlers to adults. One parent praised me that I am a great story teller.
I can help students from primary to college improve their listening, speaking, reading, and writing ab
ility, and achieve a high score in their final Chinese test.
I can help students prepare for the AP Chinese Language and Culture Exam.
I can help worked people have a good understanding of this language.
I can tailor customized lessons to satisfy students’ specific requirements and levels, such as conversational Chinese, retail field Chinese, systematically beginner’s Chinese, etc…
I can teach people Business Chinese as well since I had the law background knowledge from China.
What book series I use the most is to teach high school, college students, and adults Integrated Chinese series.
What I like the most is to teach children because my personality is very active, and I like kids. I like to sing and dance (maybe it shouldn't be called dance, it is just like moving around). I can sing lots of Chinese nursery rhymes.
A committed professional to my work with a sincere, enthusiastic, easygoing, down to earth personality, I like teaching, that students improve day by day is my biggest happiness. You will have a happy time to learn Chinese very well if choosing me as your tutor.

About Chau
I taught Vietnamese language and culture to foreigners, English and Vietnamese to Vietnamese adults and students in Vietnam for 30 years before arriving in the United States in 2008. Then, I continued to instruct Vietnamese language and culture to Americans in Virginia and Washington DC.
I got an Associate degree in Pedagogy in Vietnam in 1977. I also was trained how to instruct U.S diplomats at Foreign Service Institute (FSI) and officers from Defense Language Institute (DLI). I have had enough calm and patience to deal with hard teaching conditions.

I received awards from The Department of State (FSI) and School of Language Studies (FSI) in 2014 and 2015.

About Alisa
Hello! My name is Alisa. I am an experienced Russian language tutor, native Russian.
I have been tutoring my English-speaking students for over 10 years, in private settings (NJ and FL), and over the internet. I have Master's degree in Russian Linguistic.
Many of my students have Russian family members, or they travel to Russian speaking countries, and it is very important to them to have a comfortable and clear communication. I am happy I was able to help bring those people together and make their life easier, and their communication enjoyable.
What I realized during past 10 years of teaching, that learning Russian is a challenging task, especially for English speakers. So, to ease that task, I always create an individual plan for every of my student, depends on his/her goal. Some students take only 15-20 lessons to learn just c
ommon phrases and pronunciation. Others stay with me for over 2 years because they want to achieve the advance level of knowledge. It all depends on your ultimate goal.
For my tutoring I use various textbooks, and also my own materials. I provide all those materials, so students don't have to buy anything. All they need to have is a computer, internet, and a printer.
I am pretty flexible, so we can set up lessons at a time convenient for you.
There is nothing to hold you back from trying my lessons and reach your goal.
So go ahead and click the green button to set up your first lesson.
Hope to meet you soon.
Sincerely,
Alisa.

I was very fortunate I found this teacher. I was preparing for a trip overseas and needed to take Russian lessons. During 4 months studying with Alisa I learned and understood more, than during a year of learning the language with Rosetta stone software. Alisa was very patient with me, and now I can speak a little Russian, and more importantly I understand a lot when listening to Russians. Thank you, Alisa.

Hello I'm Maria Clara,

I'm latin-american but I lived most of my life in Germany because of my mother's work. I love to travel around the globe, meet new people, experience new cultures and eat new food.
I'm very open as I grew up in an international environment. I value manners and respect.
My love for other cultures and people makes me a great teacher, I'm very tolerant and understanding. My creative side always kicks in when I want to explain or teach something.
Don't forget that discipline is a very important part when learning something, so I expect for you to be as excited as me about the topic. If not, I promise I'll try to make it less hard ( specially for kids).
Hope to meet you soon!

About Devorah
California born and raised, UC Berkeley student, I love languages, travel, reading, and music. I've dedicated the past year to understanding which methods of language learning work, and which don't. I come from a community with a large immigrant population, and I want to give back to similar communities, or any individual who wants to learn the English language as an immersive cultural experience, immigrant or not. I teach in a personable, easygoing, but highly structured style.
