I've been teaching Italian since 2003 and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of its culture, travel abroad, and make new friends. Within the first few lessons, you'll understand why Italian is one of the most beautiful languages of the world, and as time goes on you’ll love it forever. I lived in Italy for almost a year and I would like to share my experience about it with you. I love working with students of all ages and levels and I can't wait to meet you! Ti aspetto. A presto)

Wonderful first impression - our lesson was serious, yet conversational. There were moments of fun and also lecture. I will be back.

Aliaksandra has been excellent with our 8 year old daughter. I’m very happy we found her and that she is close enough to come to our house. Our daughter loves her lessons and is learning so much :)

Ryan has been very helpful in my attempt to learn some German skills at the last minute before traveling to Germany. Online apps were helping me to learn some vocabulary but really don't explain any grammar or common ways of speaking versus literal translations. Having a tutor has been a huge help and with my crazy work/travel schedule I don't think I'd have been able to take lessons without Ryan's flexible schedule.
Steve
Terrific experience and very organized lesson plans. Highly recommend!
Emily S.
I debated whether I should just try learning German on my own, but I'm definitely glad I made the investment in lessons with Ryan. He has taught me things that I know would've taken a lot longer to learn on my own. He's also great at customizing lessons to suit individual learning goals, and his flexible schedule makes setting up lessons easy. If you're serious about learning German, Ryan is a great instructor!

As a non-native speaker of English, I struggled to learn the English Language on my own. It was very difficult; however, with hard work and persistence, I managed to learn the language and became proficient at it. Furthermore, my experience in language acquisition led me to tutor students from various non-English speaking countries with difficulties in pronunciation, reading and writing, while pursuing my BA and MA at Brooklyn College University. I rose from my position as Tutor to a Master Tutor/Professor's Assistant. One of the biggest rewards to me is to be able to give back by making other's journey into language acquisition as easy and effective as possible.

About Catalina

Loving what I do is what makes me an effective and popular Spanish Teacher/Tutor. As a Native Speaker of the target language, I had to learn English. Having had that experience, has helped me to relate to the difficulty involved in language acquisition and to become more compassionate with my stu

I just finished my first lesson online with Pantelis and I enjoyed it and I’m excited to learn a new language. It’s only been one day but I think I’m going to like P, there was a lot of information but he seems very enthusiastic and friendly and good at explaining things.

As a doctoral candidate in the sciences, it is important for me to assert my knowledge of a topic while capturing the attention of the reader.

15 Easy Ways to Practice Spanish Throughout the Day

Learning a new language shouldn't be limited to textbooks and coursework! Here, tutor Kaitlin W. shares her (easy) ideas for practicing Spanish throughout the day...  I don't come from a Spanish-speaking family, nor is my family from a country where Spanish is spoken. Yet every time I open my mouth to speak Spanish, I'm asked where I am from. I have a near-native accent that leaves little trace of my Anglo roots. I often make people guess what country I'm from, and I've heard every …
