About Drew

As a recent recipient of a Master's Degree in Flute Performance from Northwestern University's Bienen School of Music, Drew Powell is a promising young flutist and highly sought after flute teacher. For 15 years, he has participated in numerous music competitions, festivals, and performance opportunities, both as a soloist and part of ensembles, and actively continues to do so. He is an advocate of the arts and passionate about spreading the gift of music, which has lead him to teach over 30 students (and counting!) in just the past 3 years.

Drew won the 2017 Myrna Brown Artist Competition (an international competition with no age limit) hosted by the Texas Flute Society. He was recently invited to be a guest artist at the 2018 Texas Flute Society Annual Convention, where he taught several masterclasses and gave solo performances.

**My Vision***
I seek students who share a love of learning. I am not looking for the finest musicians or highest IQ's, because those gifts are not required to learn and grow. My greatest experiences as a teacher have come from when I work with students who just want to learn more.

***My Requirements***
I hold my students to high expectations when it comes to practicing. Each week, I give students individual assignments that I know will improve their learning and playing abilities, and I expect those assignments to be fulfilled by the next lesson. A failure to do so will result in frustration for both myself and my student.

However, I know that nobody is perfect, and I myself have had my share of weeks where life happens, and I simply don't progress as much as I would like. As a teacher, I understand this perfectly, and I will always strive to listen to my students, and work with them through their difficulties or struggles.

***What To Expect From Lessons***
I bring a lot of energy to lessons! I am very passionate about teaching and helping students grow, and I make sure to bring that to every lesson. I give concise, direct feedback to students, making sure to give them the information they need to understand how they can achieve their goals and grow.

I am very perceptive of students' feelings, and I take care to be sensitive to their needs each week. My worst fear as a teacher is to cause hurt feelings, so I will do everything in my power to avoid that!

I am an expert in the field of music and the flute, so you can be rest assured that the quality of instruction will be the highest.

In the few months that I've had flute lessons with Drew, I've grown so much. As a beginner in flute, I was completely scared and overwhelmed with taking band for the first time. Knowing I needed lessons, I'm so glad that I was paired with Drew. On my first lesson, Drew asked me what my goals were and I told him that it was to just simply read the notes on the page. That's all I expected to learn from him, but he taught me so much more! Drew taught me about musical expression, tone and all the little details behind flute playing. His teachings challenged and motivated me. My peers and band teacher have noticed my improvement and progress. Thanks to Drew, I can now play with confidence and poise. -Emma

About Dunia

Hi there! My name is Dunia and I was born in Guatemala but I was raised in New York where I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish Literature. Since then I been teaching both Spanish and English in different regions of the world, including the United States and Argentina. My current home is Buenos Aires.

Part of my experience includes working for International Schools like the South China Normal University FLS where I created the Spanish curriculum for the Middle School and High School programs. I have also taught Business Professionals and adolescents online.

I understand firsthand the struggles of learning a new language. One of my main hobbies is learning Mandarin as my third language. What has helped me the most is to immediately use what I learn by speaking with my good Chinese friends . That is why in class I constantly

create a friendly environment where you can practice conversation.

Have you had the opportunity of making some real improvement in the language that you are learning? Those inspiring moments with my students keep me enthusiastic about teaching. It will be my privilege to help you understand a completely new group of people through Spanish.

Click on the schedule lesson button so we can start discussing your current level, interests, goals and the material we will use in class. Thank you for reading, I look forward to teaching you!

About Amanda

Learning always takes on a new exciting flavor when you're working with someone who is truly passionate about seeing their students succeed, and that's me! I have been teaching all ages for about 16 years and I love my work.

My passion is English, English literature, writing (I am a published fiction author), and helping people acquire English through ESL instruction. I have students from Hong Kong to Houston and I love it! I also teach SAT and ACT verbal and essay writing sections and scored a perfect 6 on the essay for the GRE exam. I am a supportive and insightful writing coach and editor. I worked at the Paris Review just out of college in the editorial department and great works of English literature and non-fiction excite me profoundly. I have students now from middle school through to their 50's and I love them all.

I work

with adult business people on written presentations and research projects, from all over the world. Also many college level students work with me editing and perfecting essays for their classes and on research paper construction, development and editing in subjects areas as diverse as mapping genomes for olfactory function in mice to French literature theses or film studies papers.

I have a number of middle school kids working with me on creative writing currently as well.

I only teach online using Skype which is the easiest and most flexible way for me to work with my students from all over the world.
I work out of the EST time zone.

I needed to improve my score on my SAT by 150 points. I worked with Amanda for 8 weeks, 2 hours a week, and I did it. I increased by 160. I also improved my essay score by 5 points! She is easy to work with, flexible and an expert at these exams. She also worked with me on the ACT and I scored an overall 34. Later I also needed to pass an essay exam to take classes through Harvard, English is not my first language. I passed the exam from working with Amanda and I was totally confident when I took the test, which makes a huge difference.

About Gabriela

So, you want to become bilingual and don't know where to start?

Learn Spanish on-line with a native speaker tutor over Skype, Hangouts or Zoom. I have been teaching Spanish, my native language, for the past 11 years.

We will review all topics related to the Spanish language: vocabulary, verbs, tenses, grammar, pronunciation tricks, cultural aspects of Spanish, and more.

I am originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I moved to Mexico to get my Bachelor’s degree and then to US to earn my Master’s degree.

My passion has always been learning new cultures to 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:
-Online materials.
-Additional materials (grammar resources).
-Additional reading materials.
-Homework: grammar exercises, listening, writing.

It will be an honor to meet you to enjoy the on-line learning experience together.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart,

Gaby

About Agata

I am not only a native speaker of Polish, but also a proffesional teacher with a great experience of work with small and big groups, 4 years old kids, teenagers, adults, and 80 years old students ( by the way, bravo for Ms. Marie from Paris!).
I use the methods that are the best for you: traditional, based on PDF or ebooks, interactive exercises, quzilets, kahoots or just conversation - it is all up to you. You decide! I do my best - I build a curriculum, then I adjust and create the exercises. I plan the revisions and I keep you motivated and satisfied every time we meet.
You learn. This will be hard work and fun. Not possible? Check it!

Agata is excellent teacher! I’d like to highly recommend Agata to everyone.
I have been taking classes with Agata for over a year. She is patient, and is always prepared with interesting material. She is a highly qualified and experienced Polish teacher. She is a very positive, highly organized and she has a great sense of humour! I enjoyed having a class with Agata. Over the period that I took lessons with Agata, my Polish knowledge substantially improved.

I have been studying Polish with Agata for almost two years (once a week). She is an awesome teacher, very intelligent, fun and lively, full of energy and passion. Agata always prepared different types of exercises for me, so the lessons were never boring. She can find an individual way for every student, for example I had a hard time actually starting speaking in Polish with other people and Agata suggested to have more conversations and brought lots of interesting topics to discuss.
It was a great pleasure to be her student and I can't recommend her enough.

About Chaowei

Before I came to New York, I taught English at a local training center in Shanghai,China.

I started teaching Mandarin to a few Canadians and Americans when I was in university more than 10 years ago. And we still keep in touch now. Learning language is more about learning the culture. I am fascinated by the differences and similarities between Chinese culture and American Culture. And discovering those differences or similarities will create a big curiosity which will be very beneficial and effective when you learn the language.

In fact, many people don't know or never notice that Chinese is a very logical language and full of Chinese traditional wisdom. Even you don't agree China is becoming more and and more influential in the world, learning some Chinese culture and oriental philosophy will be an interesting journey.

You will hav

e a lot of fun learning Chinese with me!

About Cheryl

I am a Licensed Spanish Teacher, and I am fluent, flexible and fun!! I would love to help you with Spanish--whether you are just beginning or in AP classes!

Why? Because I love Spanish! I began learning Spanish in a middle school in the Midwest. It was my second language--just like it is for you. So, I know what helped me remember the vocabulary and the grammar rules, and I am ready to share my personal tips and tricks with you.

My immersion experience included living with a Spanish family in Valencia, Spain, and by studying at the University of Valencia for two semesters. What an eye-opening experience!!

I have completed 9 years of classroom teaching at the Junior High/High School level. I also have been tutoring Spanish since 2012. Besides supporting middle/high school and college students, I also taught a 6-month course

to managers at a distribution center for a very popular fast-food chain.

So, when would you like me to start helping you improve your progress in Spanish? I am ready when you are!

Cheryl is a great teacher! She taught me first in introductory Spanish and then in Intermediate Spanish. When I first started Spanish, I did not know any Spanish at all, and I came out able to speak, listen, and write in Spanish. Overall, I have learned so much over the past two years and it is all thanks to Cheryl.

About Traci

Hello!

I am a Russian Linguist with 6 years of experience using the language. I graduated from the Russian program at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California. After graduation, I went on to work as a Russian translator in the military, where I utilized the language on a daily basis for 5 years.

I have worked with native speakers for a long time and have a great understanding of Russian culture and history as well.

Learning a language presents many challenges, which differ from person to person. As a native English speaker who is now fluent in another language, I have a great understanding of how to explain concepts in a way easiest for the learner to comprehend.

After 3 years of tutoring experience, I would love to help you further your Russian Language skills!

"Meriem is an absolutely excellent teacher. I am truly impressed with her high level of organization, thorough approach, and dedication to teaching. Honest
ly, she could probably publish her own text book! She will encourage you to "go for it" and make mistakes, while always paying great attention to detail. I also appreciate that her lessons take a very practical approach, often focusing on what working adults would likely require in a French-speaking environment. She also happens to be a kind, cultured, and wonderful human being. Cannot recommend her highly enough!"

French Grammar Basics: When to Use Tu and Vous

By Suzy S.

Mixing up your tu's and vous? Let French tutor Carol Beth L. break it down for you... As modern-day English speakers, most of us are accustomed to using only one word for “you.” It doesn't matter if we are talking to one person, many people, old people, young people, teachers, doctors, children, or anyone else. In some languages, this is not always the case – and French is one of them. French grammar provides French-speakers with two ways to say “you”: “tu” (pronounce it almost l …
