About Dr. Jeanne
*Hi and welcome!!

My students like to call me Dr. Jeanne, so feel free to do the same! I have been in music all my life and I love helping my students no matter what level they may be.from beginning to advanced. My experience in music started on stage at age three and by the time I was 21 I was singing and dancing on national television in many variety tv shows after having won the tittle of Miss Memphis. I studied music at Stephens College in Columbia, MO and the University of California in music andI have since taught hundreds of voice and piano students everything I know about music and performance. Piano is a joy to teach, but my greatest love is teaching voice .I specialize in all styles of music as long as I feel it is musical, developmental and expressive.. Music takes time and discipline to master and I'm looking forward t
o meeting you and hearing all about your goals and dreams in music and how I can help you along your path.

I absolutely love working with Dr. Jeanne! She helps me reach my full potential and I feel more confident every time. I can definitely feel my progress and a change in both my voice and my confidence after only a few lessons. Singing has always been a passion of mine and I love that Dr.Jeanne understands that passion and motivates me to do my best! So grateful to be working with her!

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.

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!

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 Thais
I have been teaching different languages and different students from various countries . I also lived in lots of countries and know how to handle different cultures.
Variety of ages made my teaching a blessing.
I taught ESL and my students with different backgrounds were inspired by the way I taught them. Currently I’m teaching French and German to kids and adults at the same time. I have been teaching the same kids for the last 3 years they became advanced students and they can communicate in the foreign language now.

About Elodie
Bonjour! My name is Elo, and I want you to learn French from a native French speaker! I love cooking and listening to music, being with friends and watching movies.

It’s always a rewarding experience meeting new students and learning about their customs. I am very fun and open to help my future students to speak when they have difficulties with the pronunciation. When I teach, I give all my best to make sure my students understand the material and improve themselves during the lessons. I speak clearly in ways that make the lesson clear. My goal is that everyone experience success. It includes me also, I succeed when my students do :).

Shall we meet?

About Hajar
Bonjour! Je m’appelle Haj!

I am originally from Casablanca, Morocco, but I studied in the French educational system from elementary until high school. I recently graduated from Hawaii Pacific University with a Bachelors Degree in International Relations and Philosophy, and I am now pursuing my Masters degree in American University.

I speak 4 languages, and French is my native language. I have been giving French lessons for 3 years, and my students’ reading, speaking, listening and writing abilities have significantly improved. I like to make my lessons challenging but also fun, because I believe that the human brain acquires languages easily when it is positively stimulated. I currently work at a startup that applies artificial intelligence to language learning, so I also know a lot of tips that will make you learn French faster and m
emorize more effectively!
