Grammar and conversations skills for beginner and intermediate students.
I teach Spanish and English. I've been teaching English for more than 20 years and Spanish for 8 years. I like to focus my classes on students needs. The most important is to make them feel comfortable and motivated. I use a lot of vocabulary, shown with drawings or materials to show examples. My goal is to make students speak the language in a very natural and easy way.

About Vania
I've always been attracted to the rewarding profession of teaching. I've been teaching for the last 20 years and it's been such a privilege to be a positive part of all my students' stories. As a result, I have built life-long, lasting connections with my students. My professional bio and education qualifications include:

• Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science

• Private and public Spanish Instructor
I teach beginning to advanced-level Spanish to persons of all ages. Books, media, dictionaries, age-appropriate games, and flash cards are the materials used for instruction. Students are assessed with oral and written quizzes.

• A variety of certificates of training and teaching, in the realm of Overseas Language Instruction in English and Spanish, Teaching Orientation
s, and Evaluating.

*** Lesson Details ***
They will walk into a highly positive, friendly, warm environment with an instructor who is able to recognize immediately their instructional level and needs, and will be able to connect with them.

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.

This is a class for Russian speakers to learn English.
My very first student was Russian-speaking, to whom I taught English. I am fluent in both languages, and enjoy assisting others in their language learning process!
Contact me if you have any questions!

About Julia
Hi! My name is Julia A. I have been tutoring students of all ages and skill levels at learning centers, colleges, libraries and schools since 2008.

My instruction extends nationwide, with students from all corners of the US, utilizing online tutoring services such as Skype.

My main field of study is in MATH (trig, algebra, geometry, precalculus), CHEMISTRY (high school and college), and PHYSICS (high school and college).

I completed my Bachelors in Physics and Mathematics Education at Hunter University and have gained experience with both in-person and online group instruction and curriculum development.

Some examples of the students I have tutored are: Elementary school students preparing for State competitions and exams; High school and College students in preparance for entrance exams, and in subjects such as algebra, geom
etry, trig, precalc, chemistry and physics.

I do Regents and SAT/ACT prep for these subjects as well as the GRE (These are NYS based High School Preparatory Exams - do not hesitate to ask should you need assistance with the ones offered in your state/country).

In addition, I am thorough and meticulous, by paying special attention to how the student grasps information and retains it, I prepare individualized handwritten reviews, with supplemental material found online and in texts.

I assign homework to keep my students ahead of what is going on in class, and a visual and intuitive understanding of the concepts I present is important to me, so I use visual aids (diagrams and interactive models) to help my students integrate what they learn with me in real life situations.

My instruction includes:
1. Tutoring based on the school curriculum
2. Instruction on the home-schooling curriculum
3. Assisting those with a gap in going back to school/university.

I start with an assessment based on what the student has trouble with or last remembers covering in school, and prepare material going from there.

As a result, my students all have improved grades without any need for cramming before tests, and I encourage a stress-free and easygoing learning environment.

My lessons are fun and enthusiastic - these subjects are beautiful and will help open your mind to new ways of thinking - whatever your field of study!

Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools.
I see marked improvements in their grades for this past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise.
Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough.

I love words, the concepts behind grammar, the art of communication. As a journalist, I have enjoyed writing about dance and film, as well as writing proposals, and film festival programs, radio scripts, and interviews.

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,co-produced by the Film Society of Lincoln Center. I have been published in over 15 publications,. As a dancer/choreographer, I perform with my partner, flamenco & classical guitarist Paul Jared Newman.

I teach English to the Russian-speakers. I hold a degree in teaching English, and will help you to improve your grammar, listening and speaking skills and enlarge your vocabulary.

About Anna
Do you need the magic pill that will help you speak the language? The recipe is here. If you do the assignments I give you (no need to search for any extra materials), I can assure you that soon you will be able to speak and understand.

I am a highly qualified NYC-based Russian and English language teacher with a degree in linguistics/teaching and more than five years of experience. During the years of my teaching practice, I have developed several teaching methods, which I use in my classes. Together we will establish clear objectives for our lessons and will work on your grammar proficiency, listening and speaking skills, and accent neutrality.

I am a strict teacher :) Seriously. You have a goal and I am here to help you get there, whether it is to be able to negotiate with your business partners, speak to your family members or
read "War and Peace" in original. I will work hard to help you reach it, but I expect you to fulfill your part of a deal.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them here using the "Ask a question" button. If you have already decided that you need to speak Russian or English, do not postpone it for another day, month or year. Click the green button and let's do it.
I am looking forward to starting our language journey!

P.S. You can see me in action on my YouTube channel "Anna Cher: Russian from the Heart": https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3r_jGuhcb7D48Vh0pakNcA

*****
Some technical aspects:

- All materials are provided and included into the price of a lesson

- Recommended frequency of lessons: minimum of 2 times per week (duration of each lesson – 1-1.5h). Learning a language is like going to the gym: to get the muscles, you have to practice regularly.

- If you would like to have a class at a specific time and it is not available in my calendar, please send me a message. I may be able to change some things around and accommodate your request.

- I try to be flexible and modify my schedule based on your needs. But please be considerate and let me know 24 hours in advance if you need to reschedule or cancel a class.

Thank you!

English as Second Language, especially for native Russian- and Ukrainian-speakers.

About Anna
Russian could be fun - seriously. No more boring drills and tests - I'll make you look forward with excitement to your Russian lessons! I’ve been tutoring for more than 5 years and I can promise you a quick and painless learning process and a visible progress starting already with the first lessons.
Russian could be fun - seriously. No more boring drills and tests - I'll make you look forward with excitement to your Russian lessons! I’ve been tutoring for more than 5 years and I can promise you a quick and painless learning process and a visible progress starting already with the first lessons.

As I’ve come to realize, every student needs an individual approach, so I always tailor a study program depending on the student’s level of knowledge, learning preferences and objectives. I prefer a communicative approach as I understand that t
he primary goal of learning a foreign language is to actually use it in real life situations. At the same time, if you would like to focus on a specific language skill, e.g. writing or listening, I will structure our lessons to meet that goal.

I have experience of teaching all levels from the very beginner to the near-fluent and helping to improve specific skills, given on my students’ individual needs, such as pronunciation, grammar, conversational, writing, reading and listening skills, Russian for business travels, etc. I will provide you with a variety of study materials that you can use with me and on your own. I will also introduce you to the secrets and idiosyncrasies of the Russian culture, as the knowledge of the culture is a necessary ingredient in your mastery of the language. Plus, getting to know the notorious Russian culture is what could make the learning process really entertaining.

More about me: I am a world traveler and an aspiring polyglot. I got addicted to discovering other languages and cultures early on in life and was excited to move to the US from Ukraine 8 years ago (I am originally from the Russian-speaking part of the country, although I am fluent in Ukrainian). Languages turned out to be my long-term love affair and after having become fluent in English, I moved on to study German, French and Spanish. I’ve realized that tutoring my own language is an extremely rewarding activity as I am able to appreciate its beauty and intricacies and share this appreciation with others. I also realized that I learn from my students as much as they learn from me. Learning is indeed a two-way street. I appreciate my students and sincerely cheer for their progress. Best teachers are more than just instructors, they are mentors and friends and that’s what I try to become for my students.

I'm a fun teacher that uses fun methods in teaching the English language. I have a background knowledge of both American and UK English. I use fun and real life experiences and situations to make the lessons easy and interesting for the student. I create a student-friendly classroom environment to maximise the student's potential. Learning is quick and simple with me. Because I have a basic knowledge of Spanish, Spanish speaking students are also invited to apply for lessons.

About Victor
It is said that "the proof of the pudding is in the eating". I could say 100 things about myself, but your experience will be the proof. However, I'll say a few things. I am a people person with great patience. I evaluate my students to see what level they are at and use such knowledge to create a specific lesson plan and teaching approach to meet each student's need. I am respectful and culturally sensitive as that is important in teaching student's from different cultural background. Therefore, your boundaries will be greatly respected and classes will be professional but fun.
