Vania is an excellent Spanish instructor

I've taken many Spanish lessons that have ranged from various software programs to personal tutors. Vania is great. She knows how to relate with each person in order to convey concepts. She's the best I have worked with.

She's also very accommodating, since I tend to change my schedule around a lot. She is always flexible to accommodate. Vania is simply great.

About Deirdre
Languages have always fascinated me. Traveling a lot as a child, I studied French, German, and then Twi when I had a semester studying dance & music in Ghana. The other two constants have been piano and dance. Classical Spanish music is what originally hooked me on the piano and later the world of flamenco ensnared me. For 18 years, I produced the internationally touring Dance on Camera Festival, the oldest dance film festival in the world produced by the Film Society of Lincoln Center. As a writer, I have been published in over 15 publications, now writing for two on-line magazines. As a dancer/choreographer, I just participated in Soaking WET 2017 and my installation BELL 8 was just at Waterfront Museum in Red Hook, Brooklyn and is now at the Lilac on Pier 25 July-Sept 3, 2017.

About Kerstin
I graduated from the Harvard Graduate School of Education in June 2007 with a Master in Education (Arts in Education) degree. During my studies I worked in the framework of the Artful Adventures Program (Museum of Fine Arts in Boston), which provides object - based learning and hands on artistic experiences for elementary and middle school kids. My own research was about “Creative Insight in Practice" and "Acquiring English as a Second Language and Developing Self-Esteem through the Idiom of Art". I have more than a two decades-long experience in painting, drawing, printmaking and installation work.The images I use in my work are mostly based on self-made or collected photos or drawings from nature combined with literature or self-made phrases. I use digital tools in order to layer text, photos and drawings and combine them to a new work.
Photo and text based collages will often merge into drawings or watercolors and these are the starting point for my large scale oil paintings.

Kerstin has been teaching German to both my kids for the past several years. Their grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation has improved dramatically. Kerstin has done a tremendous job tailoring her lessons to the different needs and learning preferences my children who very much appreciated this tailored approach. Most recently, Kerstin helped to prepare my oldest daughter for her German SAT subject test with outstanding results. I can highly recommend her.

Kerstin has been a great teacher for my two sons. Kerstin always made an special effort to provide teaching material that was not only age appropriate and appropriate for their level of proficiency, but was also tailored to their particular interests. Her teaching style is methodical, while also casual and interactive, and thus well suited to provide a positive learning experience, particularly for children and adolescents. Both my children have benefited greatly from her teaching and I would recommend her highly.

About Anna
Dear student,
Here are a few facts about me.
I am a native of France. For a part of my life I had to follow a “practical” course, and earned a degree in aerospace engineering, a profession I practiced successfully for several years at the French spatial agency. But I was eventually able to abandon the engineering profession in order to devote myself entirely to my true calling.
As an opera singer, I have been performing in places such as Cortot concert hall in Paris or Carnegie Hall in New York. I have been teaching voice for years now, to kids and adults. I have also been teaching French since my arrival in the US.
I therefore teach French diction too, to professional singers and actors.
I also enjoy teaching music initiation to the little ones (3 to 6 years old).
I would be happy to answer all the questions regarding my work.
Wa
rmly,
Anna

Anna was a great teacher. She has always perfectly adapted to my needs and level, finding the appropriate ways to coach me. I have made considerable progress with her and would strongly recommend her sensitive and rigorous teaching.

Among many skills, she herself has an extraordinary voice and vocal technique which will make you even more willing to develop your vocal skills.

About Gali
I'm Israeli born and raised and a native Hebrew speaker. As a trilingual, speaking Hebrew, French and English, I enjoy sharing my love for languages and help people learn and improve their language skills. My students range from absolute beginners to advanced.

I'm a former lieutenant in an infantry brigade of the Israeli Army. I have a BA in psychology from Bar-Ilan University in Israel and an MS in Management from Boston University.

Languages are my passion and I would be happy to help you turn your language learning from a struggle into a fun and enjoyable experience.

If you have a child under the age of 14, I'd be happy to teach him or her Hebrew using their own Hebrew material from school. The material I have is mainly for adults. Also please note I don't currently prepare children for Bat/Bar Mitzva.

Thank you and looki
ng forward to taking this journey together :)

Being a bit of a language geek, I was looking for someone who would give me a structured approach and make sure I was getting the grammar and more formal information that helps me learn a language. I am not good with learning languages in a more conversational way.

Gali was a great choice for my needs, though she has experience teaching people with other learning styles, and my sense is that she's very good at adapting her teaching to the needs of the student. She is very responsive to my preferences and individual needs, and is also just a lovely person to talk to. I'm very happy so far, and looking forward to my next lesson!

About Kristina
Hi, there! My name is Kristina. I've been teaching private lessons and tutoring since 2009 and have loved helping my students become better writers, master the English language and in some instances—learn French. I have a degree in Teaching Second Languages from the University of Toronto, Canada, and am currently entering my last year of my second degree in Teaching English as a Second or Other Language at Queens College, NYC. The five years between my degrees I spent working as a journalist at an international newspaper and have lots of experience writing and editing others' work. I consider myself funny and easy going, but when I teach I keep it on a more serious note. I really enjoy helping students develop their creative writing as I consider myself a creative writer and I definitely look forward to helping you reach your goals!

About Kat
I am a professional singer, songwriter, actor, and teacher. I graduated from Coastal Carolina University with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre (with a minor in Spanish)! Originally from North Carolina, I moved to New York City in order to pursue my dream of being an actress! Upon my arrival in New York, I quickly found that I also have an incredible passion for songwriting and teaching. Currently, I am pursuing a career in music and working as a teacher.

If you choose to study voice with me, you can expect to improve your technique weekly using a variety of vocal warm ups and songs. Because every person's voice is just as unique as they are, we will work through your individual strengths and opportunities for growth as well as work towards building up your repertoire - all while helping you gain more and more confidence in you
r vocal abilities!

If you are interested in studying acting with me, you can expect to read lots of plays/musicals, as well as work through a slew of monologues! We can work on material that I find for you or we can work through whatever you need to prepare for your next audition! I can help you find compelling objectives and beats and help bring your character to life!

In my Spanish lessons, you can expect to work through grammar, speaking, reading, and writing. I learned Spanish through an immersive academic program (K-12) and then I minored in Spanish in college so I not only have an understanding of the language from an academic standpoint but I also have been speaking Spanish for nearly the entirety of my life! I have worked with beginner Spanish speakers to native Spanish speakers helping with grammar and writing skills. We will work together to build up your confidence in speaking and understanding Spanish and before you know it, we'll be able to have our lessons fully in Spanish!

I am looking forward to meeting you and working with you soon!!

About Zheng
I graduated from New York University with 3.9 GPA and degrees in both Economics and Computer Science. I'm currently working on Wall Street in the investment banking industry. I have been tutoring students in math and science subjects ever since I was in high school.

"Simplicity" is my core teaching philosophy. None of my students would get confused no matter how complicated the problem is because I would break it down to small, easy to understand pieces and even a three-year-old can learn it :)

I graduated from New York University with a Computer Science degree as well. I have learned different Programming languages including Python, Java, C++, R, Javascript during college and I'm specialized in Python web development. I like Python the most because it is the simplest and most popular programming language in the world. I have built
different web development apps with python and Django over the years. And I have been tutoring students on Python at New York University for a year.

I had scored 800 in SAT Math and 36 in ACT Math. During my college, I have taken calculus 1, 2, 3; math for econ 1, 2, 3; linear algebra 1, 2, 3; statistics; game theory; R and various math courses with a 3.9 (out of 4.0) GPA. I have been an NYU math tutor during sophomore year to senior year.

Mandarin Chinese is my mother tongue. I grew up in China and have been living in the U.S for over 10 years. I fully understand the cultural and language differences between Chinese and English. With more than 5 years teaching experience in Chinese for all age groups, I can help you improve all aspects of Chinese, including reading, writing, listening and speaking, etc.

I'm very flexible with my schedule and I'm here to solve all of your problems regarding math, computer programming and Chinese. I like seeing my students achieve success in school and work. Teaching has been my passion for years and will continue to be. Do not hesitate to contact me. I'm always here to help you!
