I have taught, tutored and teach Spanish to USA Veterans and students struggling around campus for years. I have years of academic and practical usage/experience with the language. I grew up hearing it and studied it in high school and at the college level. I know what it is like to be a student in a Spanish class as well as using it in real life application. I also have 2 minors in Spanish Language and Latino/a and Latin American Studies (Formerly known as CBS: Chicano-Boricua Studies) which give me the perfect mix of language and culture.

I am very patient and work on your level. I have years of academic and practical usage/experience with the language. I use that experience to put myself in your shoes and give tips and cultural things that may help you better understand your new language. Also, my knowledge of Psychology helps us hack learning in a time-efficient way. No question is ever a dumb question and we will spend as much time on a topic as needed.

Had to write a separate review for this subject. Jamone taught me step-by-step how to use my Cannon Rebel EOS T5. I am a youtube vlogger, and I was looking to create higher quality videos for my viewers. Jamone gave me tons of camera knowledge to better my videos. Thanks!

Cynthia O.
A great passionate violin instructor.
Loquacious, but each moment of verbal conversation has a message that leads to the musical lessons of the day. I really appreciate her knowledge and skill. I am often reminiscent of my violin instructor as a child. Each session leaves me with the zeal to practice hard in eager preparation
for the next.
Robert
Kathy is a kind, patient and methodical teacher. She develops your piano skills with a structured program of theory and exercises geared toward constant improvement. She has helped me improve my piano technique throughout our time together. I have been able to play increasingly challenging pieces on a regular basis with her. I look forward to steadily improving my piano skills.
Robert Bilenchi
I have recently returned from a week long stay at the Sonatina Piano Camp in Bennington VT and would like to notify all those piano students who may read this review as to the wonderful experience attending this camp can be. The camp takes adult piano students at all piano skill levels from beginner to well accomplished. Students stay in shared rooms (2-4 persons) which includes a piano in every room. Attendance is usually 18- 27 persons. The mansion itself is home to approx. 30 pianos. All meals are provided (and are outstanding) as well as piano classes and 4 lessons with concert pianists or university piano professors. Ample time is provided to practice a performance piece for the end of week performance night. Master classes are given on several evenings for those wishing to perform a work in progress piece for the attendees and the camp owner providing a public lesson.
I have found that the attending student group to be extremely supportive to all other students especially to those experiencing performance anxiety. Repeating attendees (from all over the country) have formed lasting friendships among themselves which have endured for years. Eight week long sessions are given throughout the year. In addition there are summer sessions for school aged youth
and also 4 short week sessions for those wishing to try a sampling of the camp. This past January was my 3rd year attending the camp and I will be returning again next year. My experiences at the camp have been truly unforgettable. More information can be obtained at Sonatina.com

My passion is making Spanish come alive for students in real contexts, whatever level they may be at. This ranges from using battleship to teach conjugation, to writing newspaper headlines or writing a short story.

I have seven years of experience tutoring students, most of whom had attention and/or learning difficulties. I hold my students to high standards and support them as they steadily improve.

About Sheri

I have tried Duolingo, bought books, and watched Youtube Videos but I was still struggling to put a sentence together. I am taking lessons with Irene and I can see big progress.

"This is the first time for us to use online tutoring and we booked a session on Friday for our daughter to speak to Guifang on the Sunday. It was really easy to communicate with Guifang to confirm the session and send her details of what needed to be covered during the session so she could prepare beforehand. Guifang is really knowledgeable, patient, easy to converse with, clear in her explanations and really helpful. Our daughter said Guifang was better than her teachers. So that's really high praise. We highly recommend Guifang as a Mandarin tutor and we love this online tutoring."

French Grammar Rules: Passé Composé for Regular Verbs

Ready to try your hand at speaking about past events in French? Tutor Carol Beth L. shares the grammar you'll need to know... So perhaps you know now how to conjugate French verbs in the present tense. You can talk about things that are happening now. But what about what happened yesterday, last week, or last year? The basic past tense in French, also known as the passé composé, is used to talk about events in the past. It is aptly named because it is composed (composé) of two parts: …
