About Vania
I've always been attracted to the rewarding profession of teaching. I've been teaching for the last 20 years and it's been such a privilege to be a positive part of all my students' stories. As a result, I have built life-long, lasting connections with my students. My professional bio and education qualifications include:

• Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science

• Private and public Spanish Instructor
I teach beginning to advanced-level Spanish to persons of all ages. Books, media, dictionaries, age-appropriate games, and flash cards are the mat
erials used for instruction. Students are assessed with oral and written quizzes.

• A variety of certificates of training and teaching, in the realm of Overseas Language Instruction in English and Spanish, Teaching Orientations, and Evaluating.

*** Lesson Details ***
They will walk into a highly positive, friendly, warm environment with an instructor who is able to recognize immediately their instructional level and needs, and will be able to connect with them. They will experience immediate results and feed off of their success and be encouraged for future sessions.

Vania is an excellent Spanish instructor

I've taken many Spanish lessons that have ranged from various software programs to personal tutors. Vania is great. She knows how to relate with each person in order to convey concepts. She's the best I have worked with.

She's also very accommodating, since I tend to change my schedule around a lot. She is always flexible to accommodate. Vania is simply great.

About Carla
I have been signing since 1998, spending every chance I can among my Deaf friends and immersing myself in the language as often as possible. I received my BA in Music with a certification to teach at Lubbock Christian University in 1998. Later I attended the Interpreter Certification program at Burlington County College in New Jersey from 2009-2011, and during that time took a summer course at Gallaudet University for the Deaf in Washington DC. Then in 2014 I received my MEd in Curriculum and Instruction with Instructional Technology from Houston Baptist University. I have been teaching ASL at
the high school level since 2011. I am also one of the interpreters for the Deaf at my church in Fort Bend County, TX, outside of Houston, where I am a member and actively involved in the Deaf Ministry.

Please feel free to ask me any questions you have. I'm happy to get back with you, and I look forward to teaching you!

Working with Carla has been incredible! I had a minimal amount of ASL experience before starting lessons and Carla has helped me learn so much in such a short amount of time. She's wonderful at helping you to incorporate what she's teaching into conversations so you can practice using and understanding signs.

I was able to use my short 4 weeks of private lessons on a recent trip where I was able to have a lovely conversation with a member of the deaf community - thanks to Carla.

I look forward to continuing on and developing a much deeper understanding of ASL!

Carla is the best!! She was a random pick from the teachers available and I scored. She is easy to get along with and makes sure we cover what I want to learn.

About Chen
Hi,

My name is Chen. I teach Mandarin Chinese to non-native speakers of all ages and levels, remotely and locally at Stanford. I received my bachelor's degree in International Relations from Renmin University of China and my master's degree in Social Anthropology from the London School of Economics (LSE). After that I went on study for my second master's degree in Social Sciences at the University of Chicago. After finishing all my coursework at the University of Chicago, I moved to Stanford and is currently working on my MA thesis while translating an anthropology book from English to Chin
ese.

I am a language learner and lover myself. I have learned French back in high school, and Latin and Greek in College. I have also learned some Danish when I studied as an exchange student in Copenhagen, Denmark. Languages bear upon not only a group of voices and words, they are the lenses through which the world is perceived and communicated. Learning languages thus equips me with additional perspectives and enriches my understanding of others and myself.

Besides learning languages, I am also passionate about tutoring and find it especially fulfilling to help others achieve confidence communicating in another language. I started tutoring language-related courses in College, such as Mandarin Chinese, Chinese poetry, and English (GRE and TOEFL).

With several years of experience teaching Mandarin Chinese to second-language leaners, I know well the importance of individualized teaching. During our first session, I will ask the student about his/her learning goals and expectations, and tailor my teaching resources to their needs.

I can help you with:
-Test preparation (HSK, among others)
-Overall Mandarin Chinese improvement for any level and all ages (listening, speaking, reading, writing)
-Mandarin Chinese in specific fields (business, tour, the subject you study, etc.)
-Translation from English to Chinese and/or proofreading of Chinese writing
-Introduction to Chinese culture, cuisine, music, history...and all
-Any combination of the above

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any question or need any clarification in any information listed above, or book me if you are ready to get started!

Cheers,
Chen

About Denise
My name is Denise and I am hard of hearing. I have known ASL since I was 6 years old. I am a mother of 3 busy boys, they all are hearing and know some ASL. I am currently a SAHM mom, but I do have a side job through Shipt which I can create my own work schedule which is amazing for my family. I also officiate weddings for deaf couples. I used to teach ASL classes but that was put on hold so I can raise my kids but now that my kids are older, I have more flexibility in my schedule now to teach again. You will not be disappointed with me, we will have a good time together learning ASL, I am very
kind and patient!
