Solange is amazing as an instructor. As a native speaker she understands text book French as well as slang. She provides several options for ways to express a thought. She is easy to talk to and time passes so quickly. Definitely the best French teach I have had and I have had many.

About Humberto
My name is Humberto and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 1995 and I enjoy helping my students achieve their playing goals. I graduated from the National Conservatory of Music in Mexico city and earned a degree in violin performance. I was awarded full scholarship to continue my violin studies at the University of Southern Mississippi. I'm a organized and professional violin and viola coach and my coaching style is friendly but structured. I am passionate about helping my pupils achieve their violin or viola goals. I look forward to helping you reach your goals. I specialize in adult beginner training.

OMG my excitement is through the roof after my first lesson with Humberto! I can't even get my feet to touch the ground. I am an adult, basically starting from scratch picking up my violin for the first time in 20+ years having played for a year as a kid. I was so nervous, and feel silly starting at such an elementary level, and Humberto's instruction was not only expert, but his enthusiasm was completely genuine. He was authentically supportive every step of the way and thrilled at every moment of progress. His infectious smile made me feel so safe being a novice starting over and so excited for my next lesson...which he's not teaching me in Spanish since he learned I need to practice my dusty Spanish skills as well! Couldn't recommend him highly enough, love love love Humberto and can't wait til next week's lesson!

I'm so pleased that we found Humberto to be my daughter's violin teacher last spring. She's clearly improving and expanding her skills. We also notice that she enthusiastically practices between weekly lessons. This excellent learning experience would not have been possible without the high quality teaching.

Our daughter has recently switched to Viola and I've no doubt she will continue to learn and enjoy learning from Humberto as she has already done with the violin.

I'm 14 and Mr. Humberto treats me like an adult. Mr. Humberto is extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and patient. He slowly squeezes out all the bad habits that I had and puts good techniques in their place. He pushes me to be a better violinist. I am enjoying my time under Mr. Humberto's direction.

About Ashleigh
I'm a former Spanish teacher who has taught taught levels 1-IV for the last 4 years. Prior to that, I lived in Germany as a military spouse where I taught yoga. Before Germany, I taught Spanish for two years at a private boarding school in Raleigh, North Carolina. My first teaching position, however, was in Granada, Spain where I taught English at a rural school near Granada, Spain having won a fellowship after university graduation.
Although my bachelors is in Spanish Language and Literature I am studying TESOL at American University where I have completed 12 credits in language assessment, second language acquisition and linguistics. My classes are engaging and personalized. For my athlete students, I find articles and clips about their sport that we build language around. I do the same for the interests of my other students, ther
eby making their connection to the language personal and intrinsic. In our tutoring sessions, there will be music, video and games! Because I am a teacher, I can help you liaise with your student's teacher in a way that will help us understand how to help your student.

About Patricia
Currently, I am an assistant teacher for the local public school system. I have 20+ years of experience in teaching grades k-8 and 5 years experience of teaching Spanish. Spanish students can expect to improve week to week in areas such as vocabulary, grammar, and constructive conversational skills.

I teach my students to understand and embrace the beauty of Latin culture which then creates a large appreciation for loving and learning the language. Spanish, now more than ever, has become essential in the workplace and more and more people are seeking opportunities to learn this growing language. Even children are excited to learn Spanish!
I am excited to work with grades k-12 and can help if you are a college aged+ and trying to learn Spanish!

Some of my passions are teaching, traveling, and sitting on the beach and listening to
waves! If you are someone who wants to learn a new language or want help for you children to learn, I believe that with my expertise and your dedication we could reach your goals of achieving and mastering a new language!

About Abby
Dear students and friends,

I am thrilled to be part of your Mandarin learning journey. My passion for Chinese language and culture has led me to this site.
I was born in Chongqing and raised in Chengdu, China. I went to undergrad in Chongqing, majored in law and minored in English. I started my legal career in Beijing with a law firm and practiced Chinese law in various areas. Later on I went to U.S. for a Master of Law program and was admitted to New York Bar. I then practiced Chinese law both in Mandarin Chinese and English several years in China before I moved to the U.S. I also worked in a law firm in Frankfurt, Germany for six months as a young lawyer representative of Sichuan Lawyer Association. My legal life has not only enabled me to understand the law, business and society better, but also made me a better
communicator, and a good learner (there is always new thing to learn as a business lawyer).
My passion for Chinese language and culture initially comes from my family. My grandfather is a well-known Classic Chinese teacher and poet. My grandfather's brother (who I also call grandpa) is an expert on Tibetan Language and culture. My dad is a scholar on minority culture and religion. Also my mom was a Chinese teacher for several years. I was fascinated by the joy, beauty and satisfactions my family has showed and shared with me regarding Chinese language and culture while growing up. Luckily, on the path of learning, I also met several great teachers who guided me and inspired me. Besides the knowledge, most importantly, they taught me compassion and wisdom ( I am deeply grateful for that). It is my wish to help others in the same way.
