About Danielle
I have been taking the world by surprise since the age of 4. I began studying at Queens College at 6 years old and was a recital pianist by the age of 12. I was a consumer of music, from the Music Theory lessons on Saturdays, piano lessons on Thursdays and voice lessons on Saturday afternoons, my life was filled with music.

It is to no one's surprise that I completed my first demo at the age of 13 and was performing for Queens Colleges audiences at 14. I went on the rank high in the NYSSMA series in both piano and voice. I also went on to study music in college and began touring with gospel troupes nationally. Since then I has done many workshops, Master Classes, tour dates, theatre shows etc. Too many to date. I am a sought after teacher for voice, piano and broadway singing. I train public speakers, actors and teachers as well.

About Toshi
Welcome! My name is Toshi M. I was born in Hiroshima City and raised in Tokyo, Japan.

I am currently working with a new project through Google called, "Ok Glass." It's a data collection project that leads to the betterment of Google products for voice search capabilities in their Google search engine, Chrome software and Google Glass. Google has chosen me to record, translate and transcribe for these projects within the Japanese division!

***Please read my entire page including the Cancellation, reschedule and late Policy carefully before purchasing lessons!!***

My tutoring policy is not just simply to teach the Japanese language as a Japanese. No, I always want to teach students more than the language.

If you are interested in the Japanese traditions as well as the language and traditions, then that is a good start for lea
rning. Fun, interest and enjoyment are the best tools for learning with my tutoring.

You will not only be able to speak Japanese, but you will grasp the traits of the Japanese language, traditions, history, culture, and, most importantly, the uniquely Japanese styles of courtesy and customs simultaneously!

I teach practical Japanese so you can actually communicate and exchange proper responses with real Japanese with a sense of smooth conversation. My teaching method varies depending on the student's level.

Are you struggling?

Perhaps you went to a Japanese language school, but when you saw Japanese anime or movies you still did not understand? Then you wondered WHY, didn'™t you! After all, you paid so much money for school!

Here is the answer: most of the school are not teaching true and complete Japanese! Yes, they are teaching proper Japanese very well. but it only works for some test like a JLPT or speaking at work.

The SECRET is that Japanese people do not speak proper Japanese all the time. They usually speak casual, informal Japanese when they are talking with friends and family, and there are gender differences in spoken Japanese!

Japanese movies and anime cartoons, manga, are mostly stories of friends and family, NOT stories of formal work.

That is why you need to know proper Japanese and casual, informal Japanese both! The Japanese culture and language have customs and orders which you must know and understand completely!

I teach both of these structures at the same time. You need to know when and how to change from proper verbs to casual, informal verbs, and then you will begin to understand the Japanese anime and movies!

I am very strong in teaching proper Japanese, including reading and writing Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji. If you are only interested in JLPT Training (any level) or AP Japanese Language and Culture, we can certainly work with that.

However, I also teach business Japanese, word beautification, gender differences in spoken Japanese, proper and casual conversations, polite language, humble language, and respectful verbs. This is necessary for improving your personal and business relations!

I also teach Japanese slang along with many other aspects of the Japanese culture. Whatever you need or want to learn, I am here to assist you!

Whether you are a beginner or an advanced student, I can tutor you in private lessons at your computer. I am experienced with teaching all levels and all ages!

I give a fun, relaxed lesson and work to teach the precise and gentle true Japanese way in a friendly and open-minded one-on-one session or group lessons via Skype.

I believe you will find everything you need, because I am focused on providing high-quality service and customer satisfaction. I will do everything I can to meet your expectations, and with a variety of offerings to choose from, I am sure you will be happy working with me!

I also teach ORIGAMI (Japanese art of paper folding), Japanese Calligraphy, how to make SUSHI, and how to hold the Japanese Traditional Tea Ceremony, How to make healthy Japanese foods. I am able to give you information about J-POP and traditional Japanese songs as well. We can have fun with those, too.

If you would like to have a lesson once per week or twice per week, let's discuss the possibilities!

I do not usually set up a specific 10-hour or 20-hour plan, because it all depends on the student's level.

I then find the best speed for each student. At that point, if you want to stop at 10 hours, that is fine, and you can stop! Or, if you want to continue to do the class, you can continue. You may stop at 8, 15 or 30 sessions... whatever is best for you!

Do you want to speak Japanese for a few conversations... or do you want to speak Japanese fluently? Or perhaps you want to take a Japanese Language Proficiency Test or AP Japanese Language and Culture Test? That all depends on your achievement!

You can let me know if you want to continue or not anytime! Let's go from there!

If you have any questions about my tutoring, please feel free to contact me through TakeLessons.com.

Hope to see you soon, I look forward to lesson with you! :)

ARIGATOU :)

Have an awesome day and God Bless!

Toshi

***Cancellation, reschedule and late, others policy***
Class cancellations and rescheduling must be done 24 hours in advance before the scheduled lesson. If you do not reach me within the 24 hour period, you will be charged for the lesson. (You must contact me 24 hours in advance or else you will be charged for the lesson. It does not matter what the reason the is, you will be charged.)

If you cannot make your assigned lesson time for more than two weeks consecutively (for vacation, camp, or for any other reason) I will have to give your lesson time to another student. I work with many students and have a busy teaching schedule, which means that I cannot afford to hold a time slot with a student that cannot consistently show up for their lesson. If you would to start lessons again, I ask that you please chose your preferred day and time from my availability, and then let me know when you want to start again. I will then put you in my schedule.

If you are going to be late for your lesson, please contact me by text or Skype message before your scheduled class. If you are late 5 minutes or more to class (without prior notice), your lesson will be cancelled, and you will be charged for the missed lesson. No refunds given and you might be terminated from my calendar. Please note: if you signed up for lessons with me, you have agreed to my cancellation, reschedule, and late policy. Also, please read The 24 Hour Golden Rule by takelessons.com...

I'm able to learn a lot from each lesson mainly because Toshi has been able to teach me in a patient and easily comprehensible way. Not once did I feel uncomfortable. I also learn different ways to practice a language with not just Japanese, but in general. Not only does he talk about basics, particles, verbs, grammar, and other parts of the Japanese language, but he also goes over some interesting culture fun facts that I never knew, which has kept the lessons interesting. For a determined student like myself, I not only make a lot of progress reaching my goal of learning a language, but also enjoy it along the way and that's why I think Toshi’s teaching is optimal for those who really want to learn Japanese.

Toshi has been a tremendous tutor that has helped me progress in my Japanese learning each week. He is patient and provides excellent direction and guidance to continue building off the previous week's lesson. The lessons are part discussion, part textbook work, which allows for both learning of new material (grammar, vocab, kanji, etc.) as well as application of that learning through conversation -- which is really how you start to learn the language. Could not ask for a better tutor!

I had the opportunity to work with Douglas a number of times during my tenure as a part-time instructor at SCORE Educational Center. What I noticed about him was that he related very well to the children he worked with - he was a very enthusiastic tutor of English and math! He was most generous with the "high fives" and praise, and he also knew how to get students back on track if their focus strayed. Also, I saw him work very well with the parents; he always took the time to patiently explain lesson plans and students' progress between sessions. I have known Douglas personally for many years. He was the one who encouraged me to work at SCORE Educational Center given my background in Education - I thank him for that because I enjoyed my time there very much while I was able to stay (unfortunately, I had to leave that position for a full-time job elsewhere). SCORE Educational Center is no longer in existence. Douglas currently works as an independent tutor, and given how long I've seen clients stick with him, I have no doubt that they are enjoying the same level of attention and enthusiasm he provided at SCORE. When he speaks about the progress of independent clients and how they respond to him, it is with enthusiasm and a glowing smile. If you are looking for a tutor that is intelligent, dedicated, enthusiastic, and simply great with kids and parents, then Douglas is your man.

Dr. Tem is a wonderful teacher for any age and audience. If you only want to learn to play, then you will be satisfied. However, if you are interested in music as art and a form of expressing one self, you will find this is where Dr. Tem's ability to teach really shines through.

About Will
I graduated from Cornell University in a dual Ph.D. program in Classics and Philosophy. I also graduated from the University of Chicago with an A.M. in Classical Languages. I graduated from Tulane University with an A.B. in Greek, Latin, and Philosophy. I've studied at Columbia University, New York University, Syracuse University, C.W. Post, Loyola New Orleans, Farmingdale University, Tulane University, The University of Chicago, Cornell University, the Goethe Institut (in Germany), and others. Since I offer students lessons in Latin to help them develop their critical thinking skills, skills they need to graduate high school with what they can presumably use for life, I try to tutor to show how practical Latin is. With that said, I also assess with a view toward that end. The capacities that I seek to help my Latin language learners wit
h include self-expression, reflection, dialectical conversation, debating and evaluating points, et al. Students learn the history surrounding the texts they read with me. They learn how to apply certain cultural or linguistic concepts to novel situations. I aim to help Latin clients become better at reading, writing, and speaking. Latin students, at least the ones that I try to work with, are adept at formulating questions, reading dense pieces of Latin and English prose and poetry, evaluating and debating philosophical and literary works, conveying their thoughts about philosophical topics,

I have tutored all sorts of people in multiple subjects including the ancient languages, mathematics, writing, and test preparation as well as all levels of mathematics - from arithmetic to differential equations.

Although my profile has recently been posted, I have tutored for nearly fifteen years.

About Marianela
I came to New York to accomplish a long-standing ambition: To become a professional pianist and a complete musician working as a teacher and a performer. Now that I have accomplished my goals, I would like to share my knowledge with my students and make them feel the music as deeply as I feel it!

My teaching philosophy is to provide a comprehensive music instruction that is not only about notes and rhythm, but also about connecting performance with theory, technique, collaboration, self-reflection and creativity from an early age. One of the key elements to reinforce the work that I do with my students is to help them notice the possibilities within a piece, which is when the student determines what the piece is “telling them”, what it “looks like”, how could it be improved, and what other instruments they are “hearing.”

My work experie
nce includes fifteen years as a piano soloist, accompanist, and instructor. I teach in group and individual settings in Spanish and English to ages 3 – adult and organize classical and contemporary repertory to teach and present in concerts. In my present position I use improvisation exercises to teach students music concepts such as rhythm and dynamics, and graphic and listening aids to teach about orchestral instruments. I share with parents their children’s progress and also offer advice that can help my students when they practice.

Contact me and let's have a conversation about your goals and what you need to accomplish them. Thank you!

I was born and raised in Vicenza, an hour west from Venice. My husband is American, we met in Italy and after living together there for 15 years, we decided to move back to the US last Summer. We have two kids, 7 and 4, who are perfectly bilingual.
I have always enjoyed teaching English to little kids and adult friends in Italy, so I can only enjoy teaching Italian even more. Although I'm enjoying this adventure in the US, I miss my country tremendously and teaching and speaking my own language is one of the things that excites me the most. I have also travelled Italy and most of Europe extensively, and I love discussing about all the different cultural environments that I've experienced.
