I will lead you through all levels of French (grammar, vocabulary, conversation, culture and more - you tell me what you want to work on!).

I will use such learning tools as French comics, TV, commercials, books and more - everyday entertainment you would see around France!

I place the highest priority on what YOU want to learn, so please be very specific in telling me what you're after and we'll work together to create your curriculum.

I have been working with Nicola for the past 4 months and I would highly recommend her for anyone that is completely new to the French language. She is very flexible and willing to design the lesson to meet your goals. Nicola has a way of making learning a new language interesting, fun and non-intimidating. I have done both in-person and online lessons with Nicola and I find that both are equally as effective. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a French tutor.

Nicola has been tutoring my daughter in 7th grade French. She’s wonderful, speaks like a native, and is very reliable. My daughter’s French grade has improved dramatically! We are very happy with her, and highly recommend her to all.

Hi! With me you will start speaking CORRECT Russian SOON! My first priority is to get you ready to communicate with Russian-speaking people, develop your spoken skills and vocabulary.

For 17 years I was working for a multilingual company: English, German, Spanish, Hindi, Albanian. I have extensive experience in teaching Russian. My students speak diverse first languages and belong to diverse cultures.

I set up and reach the real, necessary goals helping my students to integrate into completely unfamiliar language environment. I am an immigrant, I know what I'm talking about and I'm here to help you stop being deaf and dumb.
Also, my lessons will be very helpful for students studying Russian at colleges and universities.

1st Level - to set up the communication bridge with the Russian native speakers.
2nd Level - to let you understand what's going on around you and let people understand what is on your mind or what you need to say.
3rd Level - to develop your vocabulary, ...

I purchased 10 30 minute lessons. After those lessons, I have learned to pronounce a variety of Russian words, including the numbers 1-20. He will work with you until you can pronounce Russian at an acceptable and coherent level, and how fast or slow you go is entirely up to you.
Patrick
Michael is very patient and will take his time to assure that you have a firm grasp on the Russian language, including pronunciation.
Stephanie
Michael is a very personable and knowledgeable Russian language teacher. I am a native English speaker who does not speak Russian and he is helping me on a personal project that involves translating Russian poetry. He is very patient and enthusiastic about explaining the pronunciation and meaning of Russian words. Likewise, he puts great thought and preparation into our lessons and I feel like I am making steady progress. Would definitely recommend!

He explains very well what you do and what you should do instead.
It's hands-on from minute 1, and I learn so much from the first class.

Adam is highly intuitive, sharp and doesn't miss a beat!
He creates a fun environment to tackle a challenging subject.
I finally find the right person after trying a few teachers.
I highly recommend him."

"I have both of my kids (Age 11, 13) taking in-person and online classes with Teacher Lin. Kids initially were quite resistant to have 1-on-1 Chinese lessons - but after the first lesson - they both said "1 hour already? That's fast!". Both thought that while they already know some level of Chinese from a few years in Chinese school, Teacher Lin is able to reinforce the grammatical and technical foundation of the language - while making it engaging.

The online classes are very easy to attend and as effective. It is a great option when we need to stay at home without missing anything."

"The reason I looked for accent reduction training was I wanted to improve on my English and people understand my accent better. Our trainings were really helpful. When I started the training, I thought I just needed accent lesson, but during the process, I realized I needed the help for grammar, writing, vocabulary etc. I felt my lesson was comprehensive English not just limited accent lesson. I liked you to record my accent and listened together. I didn't like to hear my voice and accent , but it was great reality check. I also liked the motivation and encouragement from you. Your honesty was really helpful too. The favorite part was having good conversation with you. I recommend Nicole because she can detect our problem and really familiar with the problem of Asian accent. She prepares the lesson well and customize our needs. She will set the goal for you, so it is easy to follow. If you are not sure, I want you to take a test and go over with her. It would be the eye opening."
