About Gregorio
My name is Gregorio M. I am a native speaker of Spanish with a very clear pronunciation. I am a Spanish instructor at Washtenaw Community College. I have a degree in chemistry and a master degree in environmental chemistry.
I have been working as a Spanish tutor in the Ann Arbor area since 2009.
I can teach you all aspects of Spanish language: listening comprehension, pronunciation, reading capacity and analysis, writing, grammar rules, slang and colloquial Spanish, academic Spanish, conversational fluency. Additionally, I could give you, if you are interested, information about Hispanic culture and customs, and more.
You can ask me anything about Spanish and get an explanation. If you ask me "Why do people say this or that in Spanish?", you will get a reasonable answer. I'm not one of those teachers who say "It's just because it's lik
e that in Spanish".

· Screenwriting · Online
I am compelled to write a raving review about Haley Shea. I am 55 years old and started working with her one-year ago to nail down punctuation and grammar in order to write a blog about nutrition and resistance exercise. Haley is patient and has a pleasant demeanor that strongly motivated me to want to learn the material. Currently, I look forward to each and every lesson.

Around December of last year, I discovered that my heart was not into blog writing. I sent Haley an email and explained my feelings and that I was actually passionate about screenwriting. She wrote back and I discovered this was right (or write) up her alley. Truth be told, as a nine year-old I used to write and direct 8 mm movies with my neighborhood friends as actors and dreamed one day of becoming a writer, producer and director. But like all other dreams this one was derailed.

Haley had me write a couple scene samples. She sent them back to me and was quite pleased with my neophyte attempt. I told her about a sci-fi television project that I wast interested in and after many months of her encouragement and my persistence I finished the first draft.

After some revisions, I watched her perform a table read by Skype utilizing the skills of her improvisation students. I loved watching their reaction as they each read their part. It is very gratifying watching some one become the character you created. It was intended to be funny and campy. There were times the actors seemed to have trouble containing their laughter. Overall their reaction was positive.

At this juncture, Haley is helping me with query letters and obtaining input from other professionals in her inner circle. She is also seeking input from other writers.

The most important thing is I enjoy screenwriting no matter what happens. Haley has helped me love what I'm doing and it is not chore but sweet ride.

I'm greatful for her guidance,
Paul Skinner

Dr. Tem is a wonderful teacher for any age and audience. If you only want to learn to play, then you will be satisfied. However, if you are interested in music as art and a form of expressing one self, you will find this is where Dr. Tem's ability to teach really shines through.

About Ky
Bonjour!! I have a strong passion for the French language. Any opportunity I get to speak in my second language, I take it! I have traveled to France several times and have been to Quebec, Canada once. After spending nine months in Lyon France, I took a leap of faith in 2005 and began teaching at my former French immersion elementary school. I became a French immersion teacher and taught for eleven years. I loved every minute of it! I truly enjoy sharing my passion for French with others.

About Jiawan
Hi there! This is Jiawan, and I'm here to help you achieve your goal.

A little about me. I was born and raised in Beijing, both my parents are professors. I went to Japan for high school, after that, England. I spent almost five years there, got my Bachelor's and Master's degree. After severn years of living oversea, I went back home in 2010 and worked in a film/animation company for several years. In 2014, I came to the States, finished another Master program at University of Miami. After graduated from UM, I moved to Michigan to live with my boyfriend. Last summer, we just got married. Right now, I’m working as s freelancer for a LA based indie film company. In my spare time, I also write my own stories and scripts.

A little about my Chinese lesson. I started to teach Chinese (both simplified and traditional) as a part-time job si
nce 2007, so I'm pretty confident on it. Student of all ages and levels are welcomed. One thing I would like to point out is unless you have required textbook, I tend not to use any existing learning materials as they always turn out rather boring and disappointing and so out of date. The first session will just be we get to know each other and discuss your goal (and it will be free), then I will design each session and make materials by myself.

A little about my Math lesson. I don't believe that Asian people are better at Math, but I do agree that we have some unique ways to master basic Math, which may make Math easier for grade school student.

A little about my writing lesson. As an international student, I graduated from my bachelor's program with a GPA 3.5, my first master's program with a GPA 3.8, and my second master's program with a GPA 4.0. Academic writing can be tricky, especially for those international students who do not have any experience before. I will show you the rules of academic writing, and you will find out that you don't need a perfect English to get an A for your essay.

A little about my college admissions lesson. To apply for a program is to make yourself different from other candidates and suitable for the program. I did my undergraduate and postgraduate application all by myself, and got accepted by my first choice school. With a little bit luck, let's knock your dream school's door open together.

A little about my IELTS prep class. IELTS is a language level test for non-native English speakers, so to get a higher score, a good foundation is necessary. Also, you need test taking skills and proper trainings to master it. That is why I'm here to help.

Thanks for reading this. If there's anything I could help, please don't hesitate to contact me. Have a nice day!

I'm a senior at the University of Michigan majoring in Spanish and working towards my secondary education teaching certificate with the School of Education. I have been taking Spanish since middle school, and some fun highlights in my language career include taking Spanish 231 at UMich as a high school senior, as well as earning credit as a teacher's assistant that same year for two Spanish 2 classes; studying abroad in Salamanca, Spain in 2016; teaching two 4th grade classes with the Ann Arbor Languages Partnership; teaching two elementary Rec & Ed Spanish classes; and observing in two high school Spanish classrooms this past winter semester.
Upon completing my teaching certification I hope to move to Spain and either teach English as a foreign language or teach Spanish in an international school.

Ireland was an exceptional tutor. I had an agenda of the information that I needed to learn for my Spanish placement exam, and she was able to effectively teach me at a speed that fit my needs. Ireland taught me many tricks that allowed me to truly understand the content, rather than simply memorizing it. I am thankful for Ireland's assistance, and would recommend her to any of my peers for Spanish tutoring.

About Logan
I studied Latin for many years through the conventional method of using vocabulary and a grammatical schema to translate a text into English.

When I discovered Latin was indeed spoken by many people and began to learn myself to speak, I discovered I could pick up a Latin text and understand it without reference to vocabulary or grammar: it simply meant something to me on its own in that mysteriously self-evident way something in one's native language does.

I should like to share the delight of this discovery with any others who are starting out studying what they think is a dead language and wishing there were some way to get past all the stale and lifeless grammar and memorization (though I must say, for those that feel the same, that I do enjoy studying grammar very much, though I do not trust it as a means to learning Latin, which ca
n be learned better more or less the same way any other language can).
