I have a Master's Degree of Education, K-12 certification, and 8 years of experience teaching Spanish in schools and tutoring adults and children. The key to learning to communicate in a new language is to hear and use the language in context. I teach vocabulary using stories that create with my students, and we recycle that vocabulary in conversations, role plays and new stories we create together. By acquiring language naturally in this way, students are best able to learn and retain vocabulary and grammatical structures.
I tailor my lessons to my students' goals and interests. However, I have a general system and self-created curriculum that I successfully apply to most students. When I work with beginners, we focus on the 16 highest frequency verbs and most useful prepositions and expressions in the language, so that my students are able to express themselves on a variety of topics in just a few lessons. I incorporate authentic resources (resources from the Spanish-speaking ...

Ellen is a wonderful instructor with an intuitive sense of how to make progress speaking Spanish. She is also a lovely person and I recommend her highly.
Nancy
I am having so much fun learning Spanish with Ellen! She is very encouraging and patient. I didn't know any Spanish before, just some French. I am surprised by how much we can actually talk about. I like that she gives me scripts of our conversations to read for homework along with recordings of herself reading them. I listen to these often between lessons and find that it is really helpful.

I studied in the Dominican Republic for several years and I visited Spain for 2 months. My family is Hispanic and having been able to speak three languages (English, Spanish and French) has been amazing. I’m really looking forward to being able to share my knowledge and help you become a fluent Spanish speaker.

Julia was very organized and well informed about chemistry. She was so much help. I would definitely use her again.
Oleg
Great help to our 9y.o., who is exploring math. Clear explanation, additional materials, and a nice memo after each lesson. Thank you! Will do again!
Kate
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.

Mary is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and bright and tailors her lessons to fit the needs and desires of the learner. I enjoy our sessions very much and have learned more Spanish working with her than in all of my past attempts to learn languages combined (from years of courses to Rosetta Stone). In ten hours I feel I have a good foundation for understanding the language and can form sentences and engage in conversations on my own. I look forward to continuing with her and learning even more!
Monika
I have meet many educators in my life time but non have ever stood outas much Mary, she has anazing energy and great patience when teaching others and she knows how to be relatable to her students. Great experience!

I enjoy teaching kids Russian language. I think, that children benefit from personalized private lessons much more, than from groups lessons given in schools, where kids have not only different level of grammar knowledge but also different level of understanding of the language.

My lessons are very interactive - we are not just reading and writing, but we play games, we solve puzzles... Of course, it is all in Russian :)

About Galyna

Hello! I teach piano and flute. I can prepare for competitions and exams, give knowledge of music theory, or teach music just for fun - for your, or your kid's enjoyment. My students performed in studio recitals, successfully passed Associate Board of the Royal Schools of Music examinations,

She is a wonderful teacher. Very easy to learn by with. Thanks. Answer all the questions clearly.
Logan X.
Ms. Galyna is very nice and patient in teaching, no matter the kid is a quick learner or a slow one. Her piano studio is a wonderful place that provides a good learning environment for students.
Julia
My daughter used to take flute lessons with Galyna. I wish she didn't move from Princeton, so my daughter could continue lessons with her. Galyna's kindness, engaging personality and desire to help a student grow as a musician were important factors which contributed to a positive and nurturing learning atmosphere. Her own performances were always inspirational. She is a great teacher, and I highly recommend her!

"Elsa was an amazing French instructor for my daughters. She is patient (so so patient!!) and always positive and happy. She was always perfectly on time and prepared completely for each and every lesson. Above all, she really engaged my girls with the French curriculum each week and they never complained about having their lessons. Elsa used a combination of books, songs, and online material to keep the lessons moving at pace and was brilliant at gauging when my girls needed to switch things up. She really made every lesson fun! I strongly recommend her to anyone."
