I've had two Finnish lessons with Jared so far. He's a great teacher. Very informative, and when I'm feeling overwhelmed he does a great job of answering my questions. I've learned more Finnish grammar between this first and second week of my lesson than I have in 25 years of hearing the language spoken.

About Jinko
Hello! My name is Jinko and I love teaching! It's a joy for me to see people's improvement and success. I was born and raised in Tochigi, Japan.

I have been teaching Japanese since I moved to America in 2001. Currently, I teach Japanese at community college and home. Also, I teach at Saturday school(HOSHUKO) in Bethesda, MD, where students can learn many subjects in Japanese. At the same time, I am raising 3 children as bilingual.

I earned B.A. and certified in Japan as a teacher. 11 years of experience as a public school teacher gave me a joy to see children's success and achievement. Learning is fun! Not only children, but adults too, can have fun to learn something new. My role is to help and support them to achieve their goal.

Because I use both languages, I can teach efficiently, explain details, and provide
some useful tips. I am very good at finding what kind of learning style they prefer and make you feel comfortable while you learn. Also, I believe it is one of my talents to find out what each student needs to practice and study in order to improve their skills. Which means I plan my lessons based on your needs so you can learn efficiently. I am very confident that I can provide high quality lessons and make you satisfied. My experience and constant effort to improve my teaching skill is the benefit for you.

Please read about my policy before you sign up with me. This is very important for both you and me.

【Cancellation, reschedule and late policy】
I respect your time very much. Thus, I expect you to respect mine too. Lesson 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. Please remember that you must contact me 24 hours in advance or you will be charged for the lesson. No matter what the reason is.

If you can't make your scheduled lesson for more than two weeks consecutively (for vacation, camp, and so on) I need to give your lesson time to another student. My schedule is very tight since I work with many students. Which means that I can't afford to hold a time slot with a student who can't consistently show up. If you would like to start lessons with me again, please contact me with your preferred time slot from my availability.

If you will be late for your lesson, please contact me by text or email before your lesson starts. I will wait until you log in, but I can't extend your lesson time. No refund will be given for the time you missed. I need to end your lesson at the scheduled time. Please remember that you have agreed to my policy, if you signed up for lessons with me, Also, please read The 24 Hour Golden Rule by takelessons.com...

About Azalea
Welcome! My name is Azalea, I grew up in Mexico and I am fluent in both English and Spanish. I hold a Master's degree and I have been teaching since 2012. Some of my classroom settings include private lessons, group lessons, summer camps, online lessons, among others. I have experience working with students of all ages and backgrounds such as children, adults, college students, working parents, etc.

I believe it is important for students to be emerged in the language they are learning. For this reason, I like to encourage my students to practice in and outside our lessons as much as possible by speaking, listening, and reading in Spanish. Every single student is different and they all have very different learning techniques; therefore, I personalize my lesson plans to fit my students' needs, learning style, and interests. Plus, the mos
t important part of the learning process is to have fun and to enjoy ourselves every lesson!

Our background or language should never be a reason to feel disconnected from others, like our own family, friends, or colleagues. So if you are looking to learn Spanish for work, school, or just for fun, you are in the right place! I would love to help you conquer your goals and guide you in your Spanish journey!

Thank you for stopping by and please let me know if you have any questions, I can't wait to meet you!

Azalea is great because she tailors the lesson to my unique needs. I need to know more Spanish for my work. She also goes pretty fast, I think because I know some Spanish already, but will slow down and explain things when I ask questions. She also sends written document after the lesson laying out what we covered. Brava Azalea!

I look forward to my Spanish lessons with Azalea! She is very personable and makes me feel like a friend is helping me learn and practice instead of a feeling like a student. It’s easy to ask questions and I think she explains things in ways that are easy to understand.
So glad I found this site and Azalea! Gracias!

Just finished my 10 sessions with Arash and I can say I know a lot more now than I did before (I have a Persian background). When I continue my Farsi lessons I will definitely learn with Arash and you should too!

Most of those students had mental health diagnoses: anxiety, trauma (PTSD), dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, and or memory loss. I also have experience working at a public school, where I worked for 3 years. I had an average of 20-40 students in the classroom. I worked with a diversity of students' with various backgrounds especially deaf students who didn’t know sign language. I am currently working at a community college since last spring.
