I have a Master's Degree of Education, K-12 certification, and 8 years of experience teaching Spanish in schools and tutoring adults and children. The key to learning to communicate in a new language is to hear and use the language in context. I teach vocabulary using stories that create with my students, and we recycle that vocabulary in conversations, role plays and new stories we create together. By acquiring language naturally in this way, students are best able to learn and retain vocabulary and grammatical structures.
I tailor my lessons to my students' goals and interests. However, I have a general system and self-created curriculum that I successfully apply to most students. When I work with beginners, we focus on the 16 highest frequency verbs and most useful prepositions and expressions in the language, so that my students are able to express themselves on a variety of topics in just a few lessons. I incorporate authentic resources (resources from the Spanish-speaking ...

Ellen is a wonderful instructor with an intuitive sense of how to make progress speaking Spanish. She is also a lovely person and I recommend her highly.
Nancy
I am having so much fun learning Spanish with Ellen! She is very encouraging and patient. I didn't know any Spanish before, just some French. I am surprised by how much we can actually talk about. I like that she gives me scripts of our conversations to read for homework along with recordings of herself reading them. I listen to these often between lessons and find that it is really helpful.

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.

Hello,

With over 8 years experience in tutoring, I have learned what methods work and those that don’t. I’m upbeat, patient, easy going, empathetic, and generally well-liked by others. I’m very good at adapting to different learning styles and have a knack for eliciting the best out of my students through motivation and positive reinforcement.

Throughout university, and after, I mentored many students with great results. In addition to academics I helped them get the most out of their college experience. Everyone I helped benefited greatly, and one runs a very successful consulting business.

I recently returned from spending 2 years in Japan. My current level is JLPT N4.

Basic french, beginner students will have a handle of survival French by the end of their lesson, which will provide them with enough French to communicate at least at a basic level during short trips to the country, but those who require more would benefit greatly from these sessions.
If you want online class you must install Skype or Ovoo I don't have face time.

Elena was able to teach someone 500 miles away the basics to a slew of different Latin ballroom dances (salsa, marengue, bachata, cumbia step, etc.) In just a few lessons I was able to feel comfortable enough with the steps and timing to be able to dance in public with others! She was very amazing and was willing to accommodate to my needs as a student. She gave plenty of reference material as well as songs so that I'd be able to practice when not taking lessons. I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone who is wanting to learn Latin Ballroom dance, but doesn't know where to start!
