Teaching has always been my passion. I have been teaching Mandarin for 10 years at various Language Institutes, and taught at private schools in Michigan for total of 5 years. With corporate client experience, I also have been working as a Mandarin instructor in a language company. There are many adult students with different levels who are currently learning Chinese from me. My success stems from enthusiasm, self-motivation, patient, creativity and the ability to communicate with students from diverse backgrounds. It is my goal to combine my range of experience with my ability to make the learning easy and fun.

I've had a great experience so far. Yiju is patient, enthusiastic, and fun. Her lessons are easy to get into and the time flies by really fast. She's very engaging on cultural topics, illustrates a variety of ways to say something, and is generally very organized and punctual. She has been very accommodating to my requests and helping me learn in a way that works for me. Since I had my own study materials before I started lessons with her, she has worked with me to practice the material I studied already. I would definitely recommend her.
Alexandria
Wonderful instructor. We look forward to continuing lessons later this year. She was very professional and made my 15 year old daughter comfortable with learning Chinese. She tailored the lessons to fit her aptitude. I would highly recommend her. She also met us at the local community center which was very helpful logistically.

Five Stars! I haven't used AutoCAD for quite a few years. Valentina is an amazing teacher. After a few lessons, I feel very confident in my skills. She answered all of my questions and taught me new tips and tricks. Thank you Valentina, I appreciate all of your help.

Valentina is a wonderful teacher. She is dedicated, concise and driven. She creates a very friendly atmosphere of learning and is available to answer any questions. She assisted me with pronunciation, conjugations and knowledge to learn the aspects of Italian as a beginner. Bravo !!

I was born and raised in Nice, France. I arrived in the United States in 2010, to study music in California. I just received my doctorate from the University of Miami.

I have taught French to foreign people in France since I was 18 years old (my mother has been doing that for over 30 years now) and since I arrived here to adults and students. I was also a French tutor during my Bachelor, Master and Doctorate programs.

Through private lessons I can help you get ready for exams and midterms, help you improve your french or just offer you to have a conversation with a native speaker. I love my culture and would love to share it with you if you are interested.

I lived in China for over 2 years. I studied Chinese in two different cities (Qingdao and Yiwu). I have many Chinese friends and learned much of the Mandarin that I know through immersion. I have also done a lot of traveling in China and have studied Chinese culture and music.
I use the book "New Practical Chinese Reader," Anki (flashcards), Pleco (dictionary), and HSK 1-4 vocabulary. I prefer to emphasize pronunciation and conversational speaking as they tend to have the biggest impact on day to day use.

About Michael

My name is Michael Millenheft. I have been playing drums, guitar and piano for 12 years. I have played in multiple bands throughout Southern California and China. I am currently a graduate music student living in Boston, MA. I taught high school and elementary school music in China for 2+ years

"Gabriel is an incredible accent teacher. He has his own technique and all I can say is that it REALLY works. I tried other accent coachs before him and always felt some part of the work wasn't fully done. I felt like they were only showing me what I should be doing. That is not the case with Gabriel. He is detail oriented he has a superman ear, he is very good at explaining what is the mistake you are making and how you can correct it, giving precise exercises and techniques to fix it. I have people asking me if I moved to the States when I was 5 when in reality I moved here less than a year ago :) Can't beat that! A part from his professionalism, he is kind, funny, flexible. I totally recommend him!"

Japanese Grammar for Beginners: Learn to Conjugate Japanese Verbs

If you're learning Japanese, here's some good news: Conjugating Japanese verbs is much easier than you think! Here, Ann Arbor, MI teacher Elaina R. shares some simple tips to help you conjugate Japanese verbs... I love conjugating Japanese verbs. Why? In most romance languages, conjugations are based on tons of factors, including subject, number, and even gender. For example, in Italian, "I am tired" is Io sono stanca; but if you are male, it's Io sono stanco. If there are sever …
