I am very happy taking voice lessons with Lilly as evidenced by me willing to drive an hour to see her. She has a lot of knowledge and experience in singing and therefore understands my needs so that I can produce what she asks me to. I had no singing ability in the beginning and I was so embarrassed by my voice I couldn't even sing when I was alone. Now, I feel encouraged by the progress I have made and would highly recommend Lilly as a voice instructor.

About Jenny
Hi. I'm Jenny.
I am Korean and I used to teach Korean language at high school for 5years.
I graduated from university in Korea and my major was Korean language education.
So, I think I have a lot of knowledge about Korean language and know well how to teach the students.
Also, I'm very interested in teaching Korean to foreigners and hope to be a friend with someone who is interested in Korean or Korean culture.
I can teach you not only the language but also culture like food, drama, history and kpop, if you want.
My English ability is intermediate or advanced, so I can teach and explain it in English as well.
I really appreciate your interest in Korea and it makes me to have a pride of my country.

About Raquel
Hi!

I have been tutoring students since I was an undergrad back in Spain. While doing so, I realised there are very few better feelings besides the satisfaction of being a part of the improvement of your student's skills and knowledge.

I hold a Bachelor's degree in philology, so I have a deep knowledge on how languages construct themselves and work. Besides, I have a Master's degree in Literary Studies and am currently a PhD student in Literary Studies. But most importantly, I was born in Madrid (Spain) and lived there for over twenty years, so you'll get to learn Spanish and its culture from a truly Madrilenian!

My tutoring approach is based mostly on theory and practice, with a lot of perseverance! I usually like to teach some aspect of the language and then make the student approach it in a practical way. Lessons can be tailor
ed to meet the student's specific needs, though! Each student is different from the rest, and therefore learns in an individual way and at an individual pace. Personal tutoring will always be provided to ensure you're always getting what you need: grammar, vocabulary, fluency, accent...

Raquel is a very meticulous and gifted teacher. She was well prepared from the very first lesson and she always made sure her explanations were clear before moving on. She helped dispel many doubts I carried along in my mind for a long time in Spanish grammar. The classes are fun, friendly, and are aimed at the serious-minded student. Highly recommended.

I have composed a Latin course using the Gospel of John. I am a lover of the Latin language and I hope to make you excel in it.

In the one year that I had Mr. Scharping, it was easy to see how much he really loved the language. Personally, I loved his style of continuous repetition in order to learn things. In class he would speak to us in Latin and we would respond in Latin, which really helped me master the language. If you ever needed help he was also very open to help you out. I would gladly recommend Mr. Scharping to any of my friends, if they wanted to learn Latin, because of his diligence and extensive knowledge of the language.

About Ailey
Dear my potential future students!

I'm very looking forward to meeting and working with you! My name is SooJi and I will be your new piano/Korean teacher and we will be walking this amazing journey together! Isn't it interesting!!! I'm glad you chose me as your new teacher and I'm very excited to have you as my new student!

I'm a specialized, professional classical pianist, traveling around the United States, Asia, and Canada for various fundraising and solo concerts. I've been teaching children, age from 3 to 15 and beyond for almost five years!
My profession is spreading the music and its love to the people who appreciate its magic, but my most important goal is to share the music with young people who love to learn and play it!

Music is a lot of fun and so is piano! Piano is a magic instrument! You will love learning it and p
laying it for yourself, your family, friends, and your puppies too! I am very thrilled to share my passion for music with you! and I hope you and I will be new best friends, beyond being just a teacher and a student!

I am a very funny and kind teacher:) When you meet me, you will realize "she is very funny" HAHA!!!
Just choose me and you will see why many students have worked with me and love learning music with me! And let me know if you have any questions about lessons or anything that is not about music too! I'm more than happy to answer them for you!

One thing! If you are interested in booking lessons with me, please only book two/three! Sometimes it is very difficult to find a good, I mean "really-good-matching" teacher for a student. I want to be the best teacher for you and I promise I will, but if for any reasons, we are not good matches, I will try my best to find a good one for you!

If you have any questions, please let me know! Also, if you are interested in "Me" please go and have a look at my site!

SooJi has been teaching my 11 year old son for three years. I remember the day I met her. She was smiling for whole time of our first meeting. She helped us getting a good conditioned used keyboard for practice, by taking her time. One thing I always wondered was "does she have anger?" Before being a father, I'm also an artist, painter, so I know ho some artist behave which irritates me sometimes. SooJi recommended me to stay during few lessons so I can observe my son's improvements over time. She never gets mad. Literally, NEVER. Being a teacher is difficult job. Students can be rude and that makes teachers angry and sometimes lessons go real wrong. One day, my son got so tired that he couldn't focus on lesson. I got mad but SooJi said "that's ok. I understand. People work and get tired and that's normal. We have few minutes left so why don't we play something fun then?" and my son smiled. I don't know, but I can definitely feel SooJi has a very special talent of making people feel better and more comfortable. She knows how to ease people and how to deal with problems without getting angry or shouting at kids. Her lessons are so much fun, yet so much learning too. Sometimes even I enjoyed the lesson and I participated and SooJi and my son laughed at me haha. Before meeting her, my son never knew the "music" but after having lessons with her, my son already just completed his third solo recital which was around 40 minutes. I was so proud of him that I actually cried during the concert. SooJi is not just a teacher. My son one day told me that SooJi is his best friend. They get along well, my son laughs a lot which doesn't happen often and SooJi makes silly jokes that make him feel ease during lessons. They are just too many good things I can say about her, but I won't because it will get way longer.
One thing I want to say is if people want to be a teacher, they need to learn from her. They need to observe SooJi's talent, humor, kindness, and smiles. We love her so much and we appreciate her playing during our wedding. Thank you SooJi! You are our second daughter! We love you so much!

My daughter started taking Korean lessons from SooJi about a year ago. SooJi teaches her grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, and conversational phrases. My daughter's Korean language skills have improved dramatically with SooJi's teaching. SooJi explains things in a way that is easy to understand and her teaching has been a positive influence on my daughter.

About Adryen
I am thrilled to start working .It’s clear that you’re looking for an enthusiastic teacher that can be relied upon to fully engage with the role and develop professionally in a self-motivated manner. Given these requirements, I believe I am the perfect candidate for the job.

I am a focused recent college graduate (Mathematics) from Howard Community College. During the course of my academic career, I also managed to accrue nearly two years of work experience. I had the privilege of working for Howard Community College as a part-time Math Tutor, where I learned valuable professional skills such as multitasking, communication, and critical thinking. In both my academic and professional life, I have been consistently praised as Hard-working by my professors and peers. Whether working on academic, extracurricular, or professional projects, I
apply proven organizational skills, which I hope to leverage into position of teacher.

After reviewing this, I hope you will agree that I am the type of positive and driven teacher that you are looking for. I am excited to elaborate on how my specific skills and abilities will benefit you.

Ultimate Guide to Studying French Pronunciation Online
Ask any student their biggest struggle in learning French and you are almost guaranteed to hear one thing - pronunciation. Admittedly, pronunciation is one of the hardest aspects of learning any foreign language. As babies, our minds are very receptive to learning how to identify and reproduce the numerous sounds contained in a language. This ability diminishes early in childhood, making it more challenging for second language learners to learn how accurately hear and pronounce sounds
