Maggie is an excellent violist and instructor. She inspires you, helps you learn the correct techniques, and her lessons are fun. I'm a beginner and we were playing duets. If you have a difficulty, she is very helpful. My life is very rich taking viola lessons.

What makes French lesson unique is because it is a beautiful and complex language. Its pronunciation and sound are amazing. My students will learn the vocabulary, verbs, adjectif, adverb, and grammar combined together to help them understand and build their own French sentences with confidence. I learned French from High School for more than 12 years. I can speak it, read it and write it. I will teach with empathy meaning that I will use my strategies into my students shoes to help them understand and succeed.

Using phonetic tools and charts, I help students control their entire body in the production of a wide range of English dialects and foreign accents. Dialect coaching encompasses basic sounds of the language to the prosody (intonation). Depending on the needs of the individual, we work on subtlety and stereotypes. Great for actors in performances or linguists in academia.

I was relatively new to singing and was looking to get a strong understanding of the foundations of singing technique, and with no doubt Elena has given me that and so much more. Through exercises, and song choices she gave me the tools to help me explore and strengthen my voice. Elena is very friendly, and encouraging throughout the whole learning process, and I have seen my voice grow immensely over just the past few months.

"I've had a great experience so far. Yiju is patient, enthusiastic, and fun. Her lessons are easy to get into and the time flies by really fast. She's very engaging on cultural topics, illustrates a variety of ways to say something, and is generally very organized and punctual. She has been very accommodating to my requests and helping me learn in a way that works for me. Since I had my own study materials before I started lessons with her, she has worked with me to practice the material I studied already. I would definitely recommend her."

"I was guessing when I selected Bahareh as my Farsi teacher, but my guess has turned out to be far far better than I ever expected. I am not your typical language student for various reasons, so I wasn't sure which teacher would be able or willing to accommodate my style or learning. Bahareh has been ideal for me. She is inventive, extremely well prepared, but so flexible that we are able to decide during the course of each lesson what we're going to focus on that week. She has provided me with materials both in writing and well as recordings of the materials we've covered in each lesson. For me, the aural materials are paramount, and without them I wouldn't have learned as much from her as I have. She has also contextualized the language in terms of contemporary Iranian culture and habits. Unlike other language resources that focus exclusively on literary, formal Farsi, with me she has emphasized the colloquial language. But, she's also made sure that I know the difference between the two. It's been a total pleasure working with her, and I've looked forward to our lessons each week. فعلاً خداحافظی می کنم ، اما شاید در آینده دوباره یکدیگر را ببینیم."

She always provides many pages of her own materials for the review and practice of each week's lessons. As well she has a very congenial personality, is easy-going, and shares her interests in Japan and its culture. Learning with Sunho is fun and interesting !"
