Your grammar has never been better. We will refine your ideas into beautifully written english.

About Jason
I have 15 years experience teaching, and 19 years experience in music theory. While in high school, I played in Austria, Germany, Van-Couver, Canada, Reno, Nevada, and Carnegie Hall, New York. During that time, I competed in several competitions and won several awards. Since then, I've studied at 5 different colleges learning many skills from music production, to audio engineering.

My focus now is on revolutionizing music technology, and spreading knowledge to as many people as possible. I want to change the way we interact with music, by engineering new devices. I currently work as a pro-audio technician and product developer for a local company. My classes are hosted both at home and at work, so you can have access to everything I do. It's always nice to have a little variety.

Great experience with learning guitar for the first time!

It has been several months that I start learning guitar for the first time and Jason gave me confidence to start playing guitar. He is very professional and focus, he is a patient teacher which is very critical for being teacher for the first time guitar player student.
I am very enthusiasm to learn now because I am learning my favorite musics. I am always telling Jason that what I like to play and he breaks it to step by step learning experience. He is not only a patient teacher he is a talented one to find out how teach a complicated piece of music to an elementary student. I feel a luckies student in my favorite guitar class!

Being multi-lingual myself (French and English), and German (10 years), and Spanish (3 years), I can teach English as an additional language to whomever masters another or other languages. In any case, I will want to understand your background and needs to tailor my lessons for you. Happy to talk to you :)

About Isabelle
I am a native French speaker born in France; I have lived in the USA since 2000 and speak English fluently. I teach both French and English as a Second Language (ESL). I am used to teaching/ coaching/ interacting with students of all ages (9-80+) and with professionals in a corporate environment. In fact I have worked in-countries and remotely with people located in France, Poland, India, Canada, Guatemala and Brazil. I speak some Spanish and German, and that might help you as well, depending on your background. I am happy to add a cultural dimension to the language support. For Life Coaching lessons, I draw from my experience and best practices. I will share simple yet highly effective tips and approaches to help you meet your needs.

For best results; I recommend a minimum of 2 (two) 45-minute sessions per week. I look for students
sincerely interested in making great strides and committed.

Happy to start any time soon. THX for visiting my profile. Questions welcome!

Once we returned to the US after living in France for several years, we knew we needed a tutor for our young daughter to maintain and expand her hard-earned proficiency in French. We have been with Isabelle for three years now. She continues to teach and challenge our growing daughter. One of positive aspects of the online environment is that oftentimes the lessons can continue when we travel. Merci Isabelle! xx

I highly recommend Isabelle as an expert in teaching French. She has great fluency in both French and English. Isabelle is from France and she regularly visits family there. Here in the United States, she and her husband have raised a family while she worked as an executive for an international company. These skills come forth beautifully in her style of teaching. For me, after one month of French lessons with Isabelle, I am much more comfortable with daily conversation, pronunciation, and verb conjugation. I enjoy our rapport and look forward to deepening my conversation skills with her.

Washington, DC

I've been a tutor of the English language for over 25 years, and have helped many with their speaking, writing, grammar, and listening skills. My goals is to help you with your English writing and speaking assignments, and to enhance your command of the English language overall.

About Naomi
I was originally born in Cincinnati, Ohio in a large family (youngest of nine kids), and we all attended Catholic schools... this is where I started learning Spanish. I have studied it (and English Literature) for many years, then eventually won a scholarship to study/travel in Mexico for six months. I returned from Mexico fluent, graduated from college with honors in language and Humanities, then decided to go live in Washington, DC to use that language. I got into corporate training, working 10 years at Fannie Mae as I traveled to 38 of the 50 states to help them train banks on their financial systems. I later began working in healthcare, and got certified as an interpreter AND as an Instructional Designer. I have designed educational programs ever since at hospitals, schools, educational centers, retail organizations, and with hig
her education (now at GWU). My hobbies include speaking Spanish, swimming, listening to jazz, playing with my daughter and my beagle.

If you are looking for a Spanish teacher look no further! Naomi is a very skilled and phenomenal teacher. I have taken her class for the last 10 months and I truly can see the progress I have made with her teaching style. She not only has set lessons from the book, but she will bring real-world examples such as food, newspapers, and music! I recently traveled to the Dominican Republic and I was amazed at how easily I was able to hold a conversation. The people there let me know that my Spanish was very good. It was definitely a compliment for me. I believe that a student is only as good as their teacher. Naomi is the right teacher!
