Due to my enthusiasm for Foreign languages, I am fluent in French and can read Russian, German, and Spanish. French was my minor and chemistry was my major. I was elected to the Phi Beta Kappa honor society based on my achievements in the fields of chemistry and French. I have also enhanced my fluency in French by traveling abroad, including residing in France at the University of Poitiers as well as traveling abroad to Paris, Brussels, and Calais. I look forward to spreading my enthusiasm for foreign languages to others.

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.

As a native English speaker, and as someone who has studied one of the most difficult languages in the world (Chinese), I know firsthand how difficult it can be to learn a new language; and more importantly, to be able to speak like natives do. As an English teacher, I make it my priority to teach students from all backgrounds how to sound like a native speaker, both in pronunciation as well as in grammar and correct native usage of words, expressions, and tonality. Books and YouTube videos can only get you so far on your path to English mastery! You need a native speaker with sensitivity to your personal needs and goals to help guide you on your path. So what are you waiting for?? Let's get started!!

Even it was my first lesson I can feel the progress and I am confident about achieving my goal. Thanks Ian!!

Ian is fantastic teacher. He was so patient with my toddler daughter. And when she became fuzzy during the class, Ian could be so creative to always come out with a way to calm her down and redirect her attention to other musical things. I would love him to be my daughter’s music teacher for as long as possible if I did not have to move.

Ian is very knowledgeable and is great in explaining theory and great in demonstrating so you can understand.

Alfiya is an absolutely amazing teacher!!! Though I have had only a handful of lessons, I have learned so much about the Russian language. Her dedication and high expectation of me as a student encourages me to apply myself 110% and, as a result, my comprehension and ability to speak Russian grows with each lesson. So excited to have Alfiya as my teacher!!!

"Great lesson on the Dative case and how it can look in different sentences or and ways of being phrased, and the underlying theory of how it works. Learned new words and went over some dialogues. Erol is very professional, and his method is descriptive and calming. I appreciate he speaks in German and switches only when I need help understanding, because it helps train my listening skills. Looking forward the the next lesson."

"Marcela has been a really great instructor for me. I know some basic Spanish and her lessons have pushed me and gave me a comfortable space to learn more. I get nervous to use Spanish in public but Marcela's lessons have added confidence to my abilities.

The best part about my lessons with Marcela is that she is flexible. I travel for work. I am consistently in different time zones and my schedule is constantly changing. She has always been understanding and accommodating which is exactly what I was looking for.

I thoroughly recommend Marcela and I will personally be continuing my lessons with her :)"
