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.

Cannot wait to go back. Patty is amazing- so patient and efficient and my daughter has not stopped talking about how much more she wants to learn.

Patty is a great teacher who takes pride in her work. She spent plenty of time making sure I understood the lessons, and made sure I was doing the homework and practicing between lessons.

To give a quick recommendation: My son started piano lessons with Patty a couple weeks ago and LOVES it! He’s 5 and is a very active little boy, but he sits still, listens and has really enjoyed it so far! Patty has been a great teacher

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 am a Spanish native speaker. I am a professional singer and teach voice lessons but also teach and tutor Spanish. I tailor my lessons depending on the student's goals: Do you want to take a trip to a Spanish speaking country and be able to get around? Or, do you want to do better in your Spanish class at college? It all dependes. I do like to make an emphasis in propper use of grammar for begginers and always suggest for students to start wathching shows, movies and reading in the language they want to learn.

About Daniela

I hold a Bachelor degree in Vocal Performance and a Masters in Vocal Performance and Voice Pedagogy. Singing and teaching are my two passions! I am a classically trained singer with an operatic lyric soprano voice. Opera is my first love, but I also like and enjoy singing musical theatre, jazz and

Hey there! I'm Amanda! Let's work together on your goals towards learning English! Unlike everyone else listed here, I am not a language teacher, I am a language COACH. It's 2020; let's learn languages like it's the 21st century! As a PhD candidate at the University of Florida studying Linguistics, I have studied all the best ways to learn a language and would love to share my passion with you!

As your own language and success coach, we will not only work together to understand the target language vocabulary and grammar, but we will also delve into the metacognitive and self-regulatory skills necessary to study quickly and efficiently, feel comfortable speaking the language, and get ahead in other areas of your life as well!

Working with Amanda has been my biggest pleasure! She truly cares about her students and she has the best, most current knowledge and research on Second Language Acquisition. My skills have greatly improved thanks to Amanda, and I have even applied these skills to other aspects of learning in my life. Truly one of a kind personal instruction!
Samantha Bolen
This tutor is worth every penny! Amanda made me laugh while giving comical memory devices to help the lesson material go faster. She also reduced my anxiety by telling me that I could ask her ANYTHING and made me feel so comfortable—-not embarrassed like I usually feel over struggling with concepts that other students find “easy”. She is the best tutor and worth every moment, and she really makes it fun and not boring. I’ll keep her as long as I can!! A+++++++

I felt at ease in my first class I think it was good.

"I have spent a couple years trying to tackle Hindi. A language that I thought was “impossible” to learn if it wasn’t your native tongue.
However, 13 classes with Prajakta and I’m starting to do more than just grasp the language. I have never had such a good experience with a class. She makes things easy to understand, really helps you gain the confidence to speak another language. I will continue to go to Prajakta as long as she will let me. I have gained more confidence to speak to my future in-laws in Hindi as well as watch more movies with less subtitles.

If this is a language you are looking to learn, she is somebody you should let teach you. Because you will make strides in no time."

10 Must-Know German Expressions for Traveling Abroad

Do you have a trip planned to Germany? Traveling abroad is an exciting adventure as it can open your eyes to new customs, cultures, and people. While the experience is often amazing, there's one thing many people don't think about before they go—the language barrier. You'll find that there are many English-speaking people in Germany, but you won't always be able to identify them. Instead, it's best to have a few German expressions memorized or written down before you go. That way, if you …
