About Taro
こんにちは

My name is Taro, and I am from Kobe. I have been teaching Japanese since 2015 to students of all ages.

Learning a new language could be difficult. The initial reason I came to the US was to learn English. I eventually finished Tulane University and American University for my BA and MA, but I struggled with English in the beginning.

I had got comfortable with my English after some time, and since I have been interested in learning languages, I also learned Spanish. Through the process, I have learned effective ways to learn a new language, which I will be sharing with you.

One of the most important things while learning a new language is to develop a solid foundation of the basics. Once you have developed the basics, the rest will come with less effort. So I like giving structures to my students using different core ma
terials so they can get the basics right.

In addition, I use Google Sheet in which you can see all the lessons and homework in one document. This simplifies the learning process which enables you to keep track of the materials you are covering.

Students have different reasons for studying Japanese, so I give customization based on the need of each student outside the core materials.

I am glad that you are interested in learning Japanese. Japan has a beautiful culture, and I look forward to helping you get to the level you desire so you can have a renewed appreciation for what Japan offers.

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!

I enjoyed my first lesson with Aliaksandra. She put me at my ease while challenging me. The one on one is exactly what I need to improve my ability to use the language. While I have been studying on my own for quite awhile, there is no substitute for having to actually use the language. On top of all of this, Aliaksandra is personable and fun.

Florentina is very knowledgeable, professional, and super easy to be with! She's also very supportive, and although my determination to practice hard pieces and new techniques can sometimes dip, I always leave our sessions feeling renewed and eager to continue my mission.

I am an experienced ESL teacher, qualified interpreter and translator. I am a native Czech and new to the US. Studying interpreting and translation helped me to understand differences between the languages which I then applied when teaching my husband Czech.

During my classes, you will feel encouraged and motivated to learn the language. My students feel really comfortable with me and look forward to the next class. The language is not hard, when you make it fun!

Very positive demeanor, which helps to learn when you might feel bad or self-conscious for butchering grammar/pronunciation, and fun to talk to. As a native speaker of Czech, she has a slight accent yet isn't difficult to understand, only had to stop to ask her for clarification two or three times over the course of an hour. Good pacing, was not overwhelmed but still remained engaged.

Before our first session even began, she was already helpful in providing some suggestions for culture to look up, such as popular artists in certain genres of music.

Then at the end of our first session,
she left me with a few straightforward assignments to learn from until our next lesson.

I've had a great first impression. I'll see where things go in the future. Děkuju, Eliška!

Eliška is an outstanding teacher. She is always well-prepared. She tailors the instruction to my strengths and weaknesses, even adjusting the level as we work together during the class hour, so I assume she teaches each student in individually shaped lessons. And she makes each session interesting and practical! I highly recommend her.

About Ola
Hello! ¡Hola! Cześć! Привет! I am a learner, tutor, and lover of many languages, recently graduated from the College of William and Mary, B.A. in Government and Hispanic Studies. I have a years-worth of language-teaching training and experience and this fall I'm moving to Spain to teach English.

I grew up as a bilingual ESL student myself, learning Polish and English at two different schools at the same time, all the way through high school. I started learning Spanish 10 years ago in middle school and Russian 4 years ago in college. I've been in so many different language classrooms, with various teachers, lessons, and activities that have strengthened my skills and inspired me to tutor and teach languages as well!
I first started tutoring Spanish and ESL in high school, immersing myself in a diverse community, meeting students fro
m all around the world, and getting to know their backgrounds and cultures for a better understanding of their interests and learning styles. I've translated and incorporated many activities from my own language classes to help my peers in their studies, which they've found very useful!
In my undergraduate career, I studied Spanish language and culture in Spain 3 times, I lived in the on-campus Hispanic House for a year, I taught arts-enriched English at a camp in Poland for a month, interned at the Spanish Embassy in Washington D.C., took ESL teaching courses, mentored new students transitioning to college, and participated in endless language and culture events. My well-rounded education and experience influences my fun, variety-filled lessons and tutoring approaches! I love to use authentic documents, like movies, music, viral videos, recipes, advertisements, to give students the 'real-world' language learning experience, so they feel confident using their language skills outside of the classroom.
Outside of my passion for languages, I am an avid singer and dancer! I sang in my college choir and oldest acapella group, danced and choreographed in various theatrical productions, and taught ZUMBA at the campus rec center. I sometimes channel audio-visual and kinesthetic learning into my beginner lessons, as I've found them to be the most engaging, effective, and memorable lessons I've experienced.
Overall, I am a passionate linguist willing to work with students of any age, catering to their needs and interests so they can become better learners and lovers of language themselves!

About Rita
Hi, there! My name is Rita Schmith, I am a native speaker of Portuguese originally from Brazil. I have more than 15 years of experience teaching Portuguese language and culture to professional adults on some of the leading international institutions in the D.C. area, from beginner through advanced proficiency levels.

I am happy to tailor my lessons to meet my student's needs and style. I have a lot of experience as an online instructor, using Skype, Webex, and FaceTime to deliver lessons to remote students who are unable to attend classes in person.

I am a great advocate of good pronunciation, no matter what is your native language. And if you are a Spanish speaker, I can help you to overcome the specific challenges that Spanish speakers face when learning Portuguese.

Culture provides the environment in which languages develop,
so culture is an essential part of my lessons, including Brazilian music and history.

Let’s talk and see how I can help you to learn Portuguese in a fun, professional and efficient way.
