Lisa is amazing at teaching. I was looking for singing lessons since a friend of mine asked to sing at her wedding and I am grateful I found Lisa. She has help me with the song, gave me vocal and breathing techniques to reach high tones and even fix the guitar tablatures to match my voice to play it at the wedding. I will keep taking more lessons!!

Had our first lesson with Julissa and the experience was painless lol! My daughter was reticent at first but warmed easily. She thought she might not understan Julissa because of her accent but that was not a problem. All in all a great mathematic experience.

Mojy is BEST INSTRUCTOR EVER, very knowledgeable and passionate about the Persian Languages and teaching. She is very positive and wouldn't let you go to the next step before she makes sure you have learned what you need with fun and enthusiasm. She is very educated and learned about both Persian language and culture. She has a great understanding of the students' needs. Well, She is very pushy, but that is what we need to pass DLPT . I would not have GOTTEN 3/3+ if I would not have had Mojy for my teacher. Go Mojy! ;)

Mojy is by far the most qualified and talented language instructor I have ever had. After a week of class it was clear that she was an instructor that was on a completely different level than my instructors in the past. While under her instruction i vastly improved in every facet of my language, both in skill and in confidence. Her class room provides a relaxed but highly focused environment, and she genuinely cares about her student's success. If you give her your attention and effort then you will not be disappointment with the results.

After seven years' experience in Farsi I hit a proficiency plateau, but Mojy's customized and attentive instruction got my scores up to an ILR Level 3 in reading and 2+ in listening- my best scores ever! I can't recommend her highly enough. She knows what material works and how to explain complex grammatical concepts effectively. Best teacher ever!

About Chau
I taught Vietnamese language and culture to foreigners, English and Vietnamese to Vietnamese adults and students in Vietnam for 30 years before arriving in the United States in 2008. Then, I continued to instruct Vietnamese language and culture to Americans in Virginia and Washington DC.
I got an Associate degree in Pedagogy in Vietnam in 1977. I also was trained how to instruct U.S diplomats at Foreign Service Institute (FSI) and officers from Defense Language Institute (DLI). I have had enough calm and patience to deal with hard teaching conditions.

I received awards from The Department of State (FSI) and School of Language Studies (FSI) in 2014 and 2015.

Thầy Chau is one of the best instructors I’ve had in 27 years of government service. His patience, coupled with his superior methodology, create a unique, productive, and highly enjoyable one-on-one atmosphere. He is extremely capable of preparing students for required examinations, using video, oral, written, and live interactive experiences with native speakers. Just as important, he provides the unique historical, cultural, geographic, and geopolitical aspects of Vietnam which infuse each lesson with rich discussion and dialogue. Thầy Chau is also very flexible, and will modify his instruction to meet the student’s specific personal or professional requirements. This includes creating new lessons from whole cloth if necessary. An exceptional instructor.

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!

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.

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!
