Wow Sergey is really great at this! My daughter just turned 5 and is still practicing her headstands against the wall hours later. Sergey's advice to have her 'help' me practice MY stretching is a double win and making her more willing to do her pushups and splits too. We are really looking forward to the next class already. Thank you so much for all the advice and feeback post class too, Sergey!

I am very comfortable working with clients and colleagues of all ages, backgrounds, and ethnicities. Most of my work has been with individuals and businesses on a private basis. I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you over the phone to discuss how I can be a valuable contributor to your education.
I hold a Bachelors in Psychology from George Washington University, a Masters in Clinical Counseling from John Hopkins University and I am also certified in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) from The Georgetown University.

I have worked with Bill as a vocalist for several years, and have always been impressed with his singing voice. Now having studied with him privately, I am even more impressed with his teaching skills—fun, encouraging, and informative, his lessons are not to be missed! Also, very reasonably priced!

I've worked with Bill in multiple capacities since we met. He has an incredible instrument and a fantastic attitude. He is always willing to help you with whatever your particular need may be, and he's a very kind and engaging vocal instructor. He is passionate about what he does, and equally passionate about helping you with what you do!

Bill is an awesome instructor! He's versatile, so I can go to him for arrangements issues, vocal coaching, choir questions and whenever I need to record an accompaniment for a song. AND he's also fun! I highly recommend!
In 2013 I gave up a longstanding career in Logistics and Imports to pursue my passion for fitness and education, and I have not looked back since. I enjoy helping others to learn and expand their horizons through language and movement. One of the reasons I became an ESL instructor is because I wanted to experience culture and diversity. I am truly blessed to have been given this wonderful opportunity to impart my own knowledge while learning from others.

“I've tried to learn English for a long time and, though I learned a big amount of words , I wasn't able of having a short conversation with nobody. Teacher Beverly have been making a great job by identifying my difficulties and then working hard straight on it at abslutely enjoyable online classes. I'm really happy because in a few time I've improved my English skills as I've never did before, nevertheless I'm sure that there are so much to be learnt from her yet.”
June 19, 2017
My english is very poor, but beverly is great, I do not understand, she will say over and over again, let me understand. The most important, she makes you from simple to difficult little bit to master English grammar, not boring. At present, I have already said a lot of sentences. I'm very happy.thank you teacher 🌹
I studied jazz trumpet performance at Oberlin Conservatory (Bachelors, '02) and The Juilliard School (Masters '17). I studied Mandarin Chinese at Oberlin College (Bachelors, '02). I lived and worked in Shanghai, China, from 2003 to 2010. I've been teaching music and language lessons for over 15 years and love to help people grow.
Whether you are starting from scratch or have some experience, I can help you get to the next level by giving you specific, methodical steps to work on and practice. I do my best to give students just the right amount of material to practice and study between each lesson, so that they stay motivated while feeling the right level of challenge and consistent improvement.
Fantastic trumpet instructor. JQ is patient, receptive, encouraging—the list goes on. He's helped me go from literally not being able to make a decent note to playing a little shindig on New Year's for my family. Highly recommended. I'm still taking lessons!
May 28, 2019
I found that J.Q. was a quality tutor. He adapted to what I needed to focus on for Mandarin, which was tones, and as such I was able to improve my foundation. He also has a good knowledge of the language apart from just being fluent, and could answer any question I had. I definitely recommend him.
Experienced piano teacher of more than 10 years, specializing in the beginner/intermediate/advanced piano student! All ages welcome. Piano is one of the world's most beautiful sounding instrument and I take pride in helping students succeed.
Will be moving to Jersey City after August 2019. Please check for your convenience of commute before booking lessons with me. Thank you.
Excellent teacher. Lulu was patient, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. I took both Mandarin and piano lessons, and she helped me rekindle my passion for both.
March 11, 2019
Very patient teacher rep since I am new to the piano
You will be lucky to have her as your teacher
January 25, 2019
I had my first lesson today in Mandarin as a novice. Lulu is obviously an excellent tutor. She is organized, knowledgeable about the physical processes of phonetics, and extremely encouraging. I can not wait to go deeper into the Chinese language with her as my tutor. I strongly recommend taking lessons from her.

My 4.5 year old daughter had her first piano lesson with Jingci. I had learned how to play piano when I was a kid, so I could tell Jingci knows how to teach the basic foundation very well. She's firm yet patient and got my daughter to follow her instructions even though her attention span isn't that great at her age.

Ms. Liu is so kind and patient. Great to know her and study with her.
Every language has its own intricacies that take time and practice to master. In this article, we'll discuss the distinction between the formal and informal use of the word 'you' in Spanish.
But first, here's a quick summary of the difference between tú and usted.
Usted vs. Tú - What's the Difference?
Tú in Spanish is ‘you’ in English -- but what about usted? In English, there's not a great translation for usted. So what exactly does it mean?
