I've been working on my French weekly with Bene for the past couple months. It's been a lovely experience so far. Her classes have really helped me discover the French language and culture in a new way.

Bene is a very patient, creative, and dedicated teacher, and she's done an amazing job tailoring classes around my personal language goals. Every class, we work on expanding my vocabulary, improving conversational fluency and reading comprehension, with a bit of grammar practice built it as well.

I'd highly recommend Bene as a French tutor!

I'm a first generation half-Japanese American currently living in Boston, MA! I spent my childhood surrounded by Japanese language and culture, followed by 7 years of formal language training, culminating in a Japanese language minor at the University of Washington. My thesis focused on the manifestation of gender in Japanese performing arts.

Growing up bilingual, I understand the difficulty of trying to juggle two languages! Whether you want to learn a new language, or simply want to brush up on your Japanese skills, I am always happy to be of help! Lessons include reading, writing, listening, translating literature, and speaking (polite, casual, and formal styles). I use the Genki and Tobira books and also like to introduce students to classic and modern Japanese literature as a way to enhance the students’ cultural knowledge. I welcome beginning and intermediate Japanese students!

I divide my lessons into small chunks/parts to make it more understandable.
The best way to grasp the attention of learners is to run absorbing and fun activities.
Warm ups play a very essential role in making the lesson more comprehensive.

I will structure English lessons to your needs! Whatever issues you may have--grammar, pronunciation, basic vocabulary, or other--I will make that my focus. We will work together through games and small assignments, ranging in difficulty based on language level and attention span. I speak some German and French, but we will speak exclusively in English so you can get the practice you need!

I cannot rate Mrs. Huyenny highly enough! - she has made learning 'VIETNAMESE" fun! It is a totally different experience from learning Vietnamese on some Purchased downloaded program - Huyen uses a variety of different tools and methods in her tutoring, ones that help memorise verbs, grammar and vocabulary, and have given me some really useful hints and tips, so that learning "VIETNAMESE" is easy and fun.I now feel more confident in speaking to natives. Highly recommended.

So, are you ready to become bilingual?

I have been teaching Spanish, my native language, for the past 11 years.
I am originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I moved to Mexico to get my Bachelor’s degree and then to US to earn my Masters.
My passion has always been learning new cultures and expand my knowledge.
I currently live in South Florida, where I found the richness of cultures and the need of learning other languages, and that led me to teach my passion – Spanish.
The method I provide is customized and catered to the needs/goals of each of my students.

The lessons include:
-60-minute lesson.
-Online materials.
-PDF book- all levels (if needed).
-Additional materials (grammar resources).
-Additional reading materials.
-Homework: grammar exercises, listening, writing.

I am looking forward to meeting you and enjoy the on-line learning experience together.

I started taking lessons with Gabriela a few months ago. I am truly impressed by her style of teaching and engaging. I have tried to take lessons in the past, but her curriculum and her style of teaching makes it really easy to follow and stay actively interested in learning, without feeling pressured. On a personal level, she is a sweetheart! Love working with her and look forward to my weekly lessons.

"I (Former Supervisor) have formally observed Burt Johnson's teaching and he proved to be a very good teacher. His teacher-student talking time was good and his use of technology in every lesson added variety and alleviated boredom. He has a relaxed classroom style, seemingly unruffled by disruptive student behavior. He was successful in activating the English, students had already acquired in their previous lessons, but which remained dormant and unused. His emphasis on student-speaking activities helped students to practice and improve their oral competency. His students seem to enjoy her lessons and his classroom appeared to be a fun environment.

Buirt prepared his lessons carefully and his timekeeping was good. He was always punctual and completed all tasks on time. Perhaps his strongest quality is his flexibility and ability to adapt to new challenging situations, in the classroom and outside. He was able to adapt his teaching style, varying the register of lesson delivery to different age levels."
