Sheralee taught my daughter recorder. My husband decided to join her. Her lessons were reasonably priced, and they both made great progress under her professional and encouraging guidance.
Alejandra
Both of my kids started taking lessons with Mrs. Sheralee. My son was 6 and daughter was 5 when they started. I'm so Thankful to Sheralee for instilling the love for piano. They both looked forward to their piano lessons each week. I just love Sheralee's energy, her spirit, her kindness, her patience and her method. Sheralee is amazing with children and she creates an environment that is friendly and inspiring.
Michelle
Sheralee has taught piano to both of my daughters. One has taken lessons for the past 5 years, the other for 2 years (both started when they were 6 years old). She teaches them from a variety of books each week, covering theory, finger exercises, John Schaum Piano Course, and hymns. As a Christian, Sheralee prays with them before each lesson, and inspires them to use their talent and abilities for the Lord. She does this by encouraging and preparing them to play for others (church, recitals, assisted care facilities, etc.). We have been very pleased with her kind and gentle, yet persistent manner. My daughters really like her and have truly blossomed under her direction!

I first heard Spanish from my dad who's Colombian, so my lessons focus on communication via dynamic task-based activities! First you discover grammar functions & the meaning of vocab through simple comprehension activities. Then we practice these new items through conversation questions or communication activities that simulate real-life tasks like ordering food, asking for directions, or describing a person. This creates a fun atmosphere for learning and gives students ample opportunities to speak! I also like to use multimedia like videos, pictures and powerpoints to make lessons more interactive, especially online lessons! For beginners, I use the book Spanish Demystified or Easy Spanish Step by Step as a learning resource and to provide grammar homework.

Besides speaking, my lessons also cover the other aspects of a language: Reading, writing and listening comprehension. I target those skills with activities such as short readings & writing assignments for homework, and themed ...

About Christy

I was exposed to Spanish throughout my childhood from my dad who is from Colombia, and from my great Spanish teachers. After minoring in it at college, I perfected my fluency from living in Spain for 2 years and studying it for 18 years! My adventures with the language led me to pursue an MA in Spa

I need some patience for sure because I'm SO self critical I can block my own progress. Christy is great, patient and so far, is bringing my conversational spanish out of its shell.
Miles
I appreciate her willingness to accommodate me and my schedule and, although I have only had 1 lesson so far, can feel that I am already growing in knowledge and confidence. I really like that she gives me assignments I can work on between lessons so that I can make the most of my lesson time with her.

I am fluent in Arabic. I came up with a way to teach Arabic for children combining everyday language with the classic Arabic that most children find difficult. I am familiar with the different Arabic regions dialects and can determine how to start the learning process depending on the students interests and their needs to learn this language. Children will also learn how to speak, read and write . Our sessions will depend on conversations more than boring grammar rules that most children don't like. In addition, the student will learn about the culture of the different regions. I traveled and lived in several countries and very familiar with the traditions and the heritage. Sessions will be personalized depending on each individual's interest.
I can also teach the different Arabic dialects and I can teach the Middle Eastern cuisine. The Arabic culture is very rich and my online sessions will be a one of a kind experience.

We love our Arabic teacher! Ms. Layla is a caring and committed individual who is comprehensive in her teaching approach as well as fun and kid-friendly in her teaching style. It’s such a relief to know that our child is receiving excellent Arabic instruction on a weekly basis. She will adjust her curriculum and pace according to your family’s needs. At first, we wondered how engaging an online experience would be for our seven year old, but we’ve been super happy with Ms. Layla.

"It's official. Best instructor ever. Today was the end of my initial prepaid classes. I have already set up for another month. Jihye teaches at my pace. Is still very patient and reviews sections until I "get it". Sections that I get quickly, she moves on and then ties everything together.
She has a wonderful personality and literally makes learning the Korean language fun. She has me read, write, speak and laugh all while teaching. She always greets my family members if they happen walk by in the background.
I am making progress and look forward to my classes. Another plus is that she uses a textbook. So even though this is a holiday break, I can peek to future lessons and continue to practice.
A+++ to Jihye."

10 Must-Know German Expressions for Traveling Abroad

Do you have a trip planned to Germany? Traveling abroad is an exciting adventure as it can open your eyes to new customs, cultures, and people. While the experience is often amazing, there's one thing many people don't think about before they go—the language barrier. You'll find that there are many English-speaking people in Germany, but you won't always be able to identify them. Instead, it's best to have a few German expressions memorized or written down before you go. That way, if you …
