About Tamari (Tamara)

Hi, there! I'm Tamara and I can't wait to meet you! On social media and for those who are more familiar, I'm Tamari. We all learn in different ways; some are more visual; others, auditory; some, kinesthetic--I combine a number of different modalities in my teaching, including direct feed

Tamari is a remarkably accommodating teacher. Uses instructional strategies that are effective and appropriate. Also, presents new material clearly and logically. Demonstrates enthusiasm and interest in lesson presentation. My daughter loves learning classical piano with Tamari.
Rhea Farbman
I have known Tamari professionally for fifteen years.
She is an excellent music teacher for piano and voice. Her expertise is noticeable as she patiently meets her student at his/her level and guides that student to the next step.
The process is perfect for any student, even if developmentally challenged and for any age. I highly recommend Tamari.

I've been consistent weekly taking yoga lessons from Tamari at the Y in Canaan CT. I try not to miss it. She's a compassionate and caring yoga teacher and will trailer her classes to fit your needs. Her classes are good for newbies and seniors and those who want a simple class. No athletics. Hatha Yoga are basic yoga stretches that will make you feel good after participating . My aches and pains are gone after each session. To be continued....

Tokie B.

I teach a wide range of students, from beginning/travel Japanese to advanced business Japanese. I also specialize in teaching all levels of JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test) preparation. I have many students at the highest level JLPT N1. If Karaoke, Japanese Drama or Anime interest you, then we can have fun learning together.
Teaching is my passion! I love teaching! My teaching style is to have fun learning without stress. I cater my lessons to the individual student to meet his/her diverse interests and academic goals. I create simple formulas, so that difficult Japanese grammar is easy to understand. I respect student’s learning style with great patience. I strongly believe that repetition is key to mastering a language and try to impress this fact on students

Romanian is my native language. I excelled in school and college every time when tested, and continue to do so almost three decades after graduating high school. My education at the Academy of Police "Alexandru Ioan Cuza", Faculty of Law, a public entity in Bucharest, Romania, has the Romanian grammar and literature among its core prerequisites for accession to this institution next to history and a foreign language.
In the USA I earned a MBA in International Business which propelled my career in the US Coast Guard which relies on my polyglot skills including Romanian for translations of documents and live interpretations during international events.
I am also a Certified Interpreter in Romanian with the US Defense Language Institute Monterrey, California.

About Isabela

Before reading about me, I'd like to share up front the honor that my newest student, R., has brought to me by choosing to learn Romanian. Nothing special so far except that he is 100 years old!!!! Yes, you read that correctly: a century old. He is the outmost inspiring person in my life by teachin

Isabela is wonderful. She is generous with her time, and tailors the lessons to my purpose in learning French. She is gently encouraging, and finds me wonderful resources on the web to help me expand my learning.

I starting working with Isabel a few weeks ago. She is very generous with her time. She is patient as I am just beginning and have some struggles with pronunciation. She tailors the lessons to your goals. I can see real progress after just a few lessons.

"I just started taking lessons with Prajakta and so far it has been wonderful. She is very patient, flexible, and encouraging. She also has put a lot of work in providing the proper materials students need to start learning Hindi even with no prior experience. I have also asked her to share with me about Indian culture and so far she has taught me several interesting facts and cultural traditions as well as tied in hindi with hinduism and india. I'm looking forward to many more lessons!"

"There isn't a better teacher to learn ASL from. Tony Slate has been working with me for over 1 year on 1-1 sessions. After about 9-10 months, I was able to have a basic conversation in ASL and I became active in my local Deaf community. I've become friends with several Deaf neighbors and am really enjoying the hard work pay off now that I'm able to sign. Getting out there in public and signing with strangers was very scary but it really helped accelerate my learning and it's really fun. I highly recommend working with Mr. Slate."

I'm learning Korean much faster than if I had stuck with self study.Not only is she patient and honest about the mistakes I make but she also willing to work with me until I get the pronunciation right. She is a wonderful teacher and really fun. She makes learning the Korean language enjoyable.
