I have been teaching Spanish lessons to all kind of students since I came to the United States seven years ago. I was born in Estella (Spain), an hour away from San Millán de la Cogolla, where the first written words in Spanish have been found, so my Spanish is as authentic as it gets. I can teach emphasizing grammar, pronunciation or conversation, and always adapting my teaching style to students' necessities as I was taught during my psycho-pedagogy classes at Universidad de Navarra.

My lessons are fun and straight to the point. You will never run out of materials to learn, which will always be tailored to your needs. Time is of the essence and I carefully select the topics based on your weaknesses so that your improvement is fast and steady. If you have specific requests, like preparing for a test, homework or learning a tune, I develop a plan with you so that you can achieve your goals. Learning is a process that many compare to a trip, so let's meet and embark in this travel ...

I have excellent pronunciation, and can help you also master Mandarin pronunciation, as well as grammar, sentence structure, reading and writing, etc. Chinese is an amazing yet very difficult language. Let me help you build a great foundation for becoming fluent and expressing yourself in Chinese!

Even it was my first lesson I can feel the progress and I am confident about achieving my goal. Thanks Ian!!

Ian is fantastic teacher. He was so patient with my toddler daughter. And when she became fuzzy during the class, Ian could be so creative to always come out with a way to calm her down and redirect her attention to other musical things. I would love him to be my daughter’s music teacher for as long as possible if I did not have to move.

Ian is very knowledgeable and is great in explaining theory and great in demonstrating so you can understand.

I have been teaching my native language for more than 7 years and I still enjoy sharing my love and great interest in the French language.
My experience in teaching full classes or private tutoring has made me someone patient, understanding and flexible. Whatever the time it takes, I want to see my students succeed and have fun while learning.
As a teacher, I know that every student is unique and it is dear to my heart to respond and adapt to each one. That is why I first suggest one lesson to determinate together your goals and a plan to achieve them. Also, because everyone has special needs and different ways to memorize, I am used to exploit multiple course materials (videos, board games, text books, role plays, etc.) to facilitate the learning process and make it really enjoyable.

About Aurore

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Classical Literature. I have taught French and Latin in Middle and High Schools (from 6th to 12th grades) for more than 7 years in Paris and Lyon (France), until I left for New York in June 2019. I am trained to teach French as a Foreign Language (FLE) and have audi

This course is about how to learn to say the 44 sounds in English (including the 20 vowel international phonics sounds) quickly and to reduce your accent audibly. A suggested twice a week course. We will cover the most important phonics/sounds that my clients - from India, China, France, Russia, Brazil, Spain and so on - have the most problems with doing business in the US/Silicon Valley. You don't have to go through all the lectures, just pick the areas you feel you still have to work on and practice the words diligently.

You will see the slides that go with the video and most of the time, I also uploaded additional practice materials. If you work on your English pronunciation consistently, you will see results really fast.

Master the American Accent book will be provided (228 pages).

Who this course is for:

You need to know some spoken American English already to benefit from the course. But, since this is an American English speaking course with lots of examples, if ...

We all know European languages have that romantic touch that we all need to hear or understand from time to time. Eminescu's language should be discovered by everybody. I'm more than willing to explain it to someone passionated about Latin languages.

About Alexandra

I recently moved from Romania and I would love to spread my native Romanian knowledge with someone passionated about this Latin language. I studied Romanian and English grammar and literature at Petru Maior University (BA), in Targu-Mures, Romania, 2010-2013.

Alexandra did a terrific job in preparing me to get around Romania. I travel there for work and she was excellent in helping me learn key phrases and sentence structure for someone visiting and getting around that country.
Adel H.
Alexandra is dope teacher! I wanted to start learning phrases and speaking basics, and have conversations for when I visit romania. She is generous with her time, excellent English to romanian communication/knowledge and she is charming.

So it's been a pleasure!
