About Annie
I graduated from Boston College with a B.A. in Music and Communication in 2013. Then I earned M.S. in educational studies: ESOL at Johns Hopkins while working full time as a public school teacher in Baltimore. At Highlandtown Elementary Middle School, I was the Strings Program Director with Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's OrchKids. I recently graduated from Harvard University with a degree in Education Policy and Management.

At Boston College, I served as the concertmaster for the symphonic orchestra, tutored music theory and violin, and coached chamber ensemble groups. I also co-founded a music outreach organization where BC students provided music education for a local elementary school without a viable music curriculum.
I absolutely love working with children in every aspect, especially music. I've been teaching privately for about
7 years now and my students have become accomplished violinists! I focus on making violin fun and awarding to allow children to appreciate music and to challenge themselves to a higher rigor. I individualize and differentiate all of my lessons to ensure effectiveness.

I've been a tutor of the English language for over 25 years, and have helped many with their speaking, writing, grammar, and listening skills. My goals is to help you with your English writing and speaking assignments, and to enhance your command of the English language overall.

About Naomi
I was originally born in Cincinnati, Ohio in a large family (youngest of nine kids), and we all attended Catholic schools... this is where I started learning Spanish. I have studied it (and English Literature) for many years, then eventually won a scholarship to study/travel in Mexico for six months. I returned from Mexico fluent, graduated from college with honors in language and Humanities, then decided to go live in Washington, DC to use that language. I got into corporate training, working 10 years at Fannie Mae as I traveled to 38 of the 50 states to help them train banks on their financial systems. I later began working in healthcare, and got certified as an interpreter AND as an Instructional Designer. I have designed educational programs ever since at hospitals, schools, educational centers, retail organizations, and with hig
her education (now at GWU). My hobbies include speaking Spanish, swimming, listening to jazz, playing with my daughter and my beagle.

If you are looking for a Spanish teacher look no further! Naomi is a very skilled and phenomenal teacher. I have taken her class for the last 10 months and I truly can see the progress I have made with her teaching style. She not only has set lessons from the book, but she will bring real-world examples such as food, newspapers, and music! I recently traveled to the Dominican Republic and I was amazed at how easily I was able to hold a conversation. The people there let me know that my Spanish was very good. It was definitely a compliment for me. I believe that a student is only as good as their teacher. Naomi is the right teacher!

Naomi really takes the time to go over with you the culture and language of the people. She setup a lesson plan for me and established goals. I love her teaching style and I feel like I'm taking the time to learn again. If you're looking for a teacher who knows her stuff she is it!

Colorado Springs, CO

I'm a Comparative Literature major at Colorado College. I'm bilingual, patient, and know how to encourage new language students.

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.
