About Taro
Hi. I'm a native Japanese speaker from Kobe. I was born and raised there and speak both standard Japanese and Kobe dialect. I'm an expert at bringing one's overall language level from the beginner to intermediate. I will assist you more with English first if you're a beginner and gradually transition to using only Japanese as you get closer to an intermediate level.

I have been taking Japanese lessons with Taro Sensei for about 5 months. He is a very patient and organized instructor. He designs the teaching material based on my specific level and goals. I enjoy the fun conversation with him during every lesson. My Japanese skill has improved gradually as time goes by. Thank you Taro Sensei.

Taguchi Sensei has helped improve my Japanese tremendously! Not only is he able to accommodate my sometimes crazy schedule, but he's very patient while learning, will go in-depth on topics I don't quite understand and will provide exercises for me on those topics. He's personal, so we use real-time situations from my life to practice with (describing my day at work, where my cats are, what I ate, etc.)

When I visted Japan this year, I owe it to him that I was able to have the amazing experiences I did. Because of him, I was able to understand the language, the culture, and have the confidence in speaking with locals.

I appriciate all the help and encourgaement that he's provided.
ありがとうございます田口先生!

Taro is a great Japanese instructor! He’s constantly analyzing and reevaluating the best possible learning methods for each particular student. I’ve only taken 3 lessons so far but I’m quite confident in his ability to help me reach fluency in Japanese, so long as I am patient and disciplined 🤔😅

About Molly
I just returned to the US after 2.5 years of living abroad and teaching English to non-native speakers. I have experience tutoring ages 5-50 and a B.S. in Psychology which provides with a lot of knowledge on learning styles and methods.

I'm fascinated by language and the way people communicate and hence, absolutely love teaching English. I have learned foreign languages myself, so I know from experience what it requires and how rewarding it is.

I love tutoring others in order to help them reach a specific goal or increase their confidence; It's fun for me to spend time with others in general and especially when I am able to help them gain a better understanding of something that's hard for them to grasp or master. I know it can be hard to have lessons in addition to normal work/school hours and that's why it's important and fun
for me to create engaging lessons with a relaxed atmosphere. I always make sure to allow the student to share what they'd like to focus on and listen to their thoughts or ideas about our lessons.

I had been taking conversation lessons with Molly in Israel for about 1.5 years till Molly left to US. I really enjoyed every lesson, the conversation wasn't just boring grammatics lessons but discussions about cultural differences, history, politics and many others. Before we started, I had been ashamed of my English and had preferred to avoid communicating, now the whole new english speaking world is open to me. Thanks a lot, Molly!

About William
I have been tutoring since 2014 when I worked in Spanish elementary school. Prior to that, I graduated from Exeter Univeristy with a Master's in Social and Political Philosophy and a Bachelor's degree in Politics from the University of Leicester. I also was employed by the prestigous tutoring service Titanium Tutors in London.

I teach Philosophy, Political Sciences, and History up to advanced level having covered these subjects extensivley over my college career. I can teach Spanish up to intermediate level having lived in Spain and studied at school, as well as English, Geography, and Religion. I am also happy teaching writing skills and preparing for exams.

I believe the best way for students to learn is through a dialogue, for them to show they understand. To acheive this, I avoid lecturing and rote learning. Instead, I set out cl
ear learning objectives at the start and then ask appropriate questions to ascertain the student's understanding throughout our lessons together. This way my lessons are personable, and geared towards the individual student's needs.

I also believe learning should be enjoyable. I create a fun, enthusiastic lesson environment. I have worked with students of all ages and have built good rapport with them all. I look forward to getting to know you and starting working together soon!

About Anameris
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 speaking.. 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.

About Eirene
My name is Eirene and I love learning languages. I grew up in Canada and the U.S. and have traveled to over 20 countries. Whenever I have some free time, I love to listen to podcasts, chat with my native speaker friends and travel at every opportunity I get. This year, I was in Tanzania, where I studied Swahili for 2 months. Other than studying and teaching language, I also love cooking, drawing and taking walks around the city.

--

My teaching style is very much student-led, teacher-guided. As a teacher, I mold every class to complement my student's preferences and needs. We work on grammar and vocabulary through book materials and exercises but also engaging activities like movies and music.

As a non-native Spanish speaker (Spanish if my 4th language, after French), I hope I can shed light on how Spanish is structured, and how
it works--and also help you meet your Spanish goals, whether it be work, travel or personal.

Feel free to write to me as well with any questions you have. Looking forward to connecting. Chau!

Eirene is a patient and diligent teacher who helped transform my limited knowledge of Spanish--mainly from TV--into practical, everyday skills. She broke down concepts in digestible ways, often referencing French (my other language) so that I could better understand a certain topic or concept. What's more, she also always kept the focus on conversation, which I really appreciated, particularly since that's the area I want to work on most. In short, if you're looking for someone dependable, kind and always rooting for your success, you should look no further than Eirene.
