I love words, the concepts behind grammar, the art of communication. As a journalist, I have enjoyed writing about dance and film, as well as writing proposals, and film festival programs, radio scripts, magazine articles, and interviews.

About Deirdre

Languages have always fascinated me. Traveling a lot as a child, I studied French, German, and Twi when I had a semester studying dance & drumming in Ghana. The other two constants have been piano and dance. Classical Spanish music is what originally hooked me on the piano and later the world of fl

Hello prospective students! I have five years experience as a middle school English teacher. Why work with me? I push my students to do their best while still being patient and making a connection. I have been tutoring in subjects of English, math, social studies, and science for middle school and elementary school for about 10 years. In the summer, I offer one-on-one and group sessions for Catholic High School Entrance Exams. In this, I teach test-taking strategies and practice sample questions to strengthen the students' skills. I am technology proficient and therefore, utilize many resources in order to be the best teacher I can be. My schedule is flexible and I have transportation if needed. Looking forward to working with you!

I make language learning fun and effective, using established techniques for effective and rapid language acquisition. I prefer to teach speaking and listening together with reading and writing, but some students prefer only to learn to speak, which is also fine. It can be faster to get up and running with conversations, but with less deep an understanding of the language.

As a native English speaker who lived in mainland China for over 8 years, I have the unique ability to explain pronunciation and other issues clearly from a foreigner's perspective. I can help you understand quickly and easily how to form the sounds we don't have in English, as well as visualize the tone systems that are characteristic of Mandarin Chinese.

About J.Q.

I studied jazz trumpet performance at Oberlin Conservatory (Bachelors, '02) and The Juilliard School (Masters '17). I studied Mandarin Chinese at Oberlin College (Bachelors, '02). I lived and worked in Shanghai, China, from 2003 to 2010. I've been teaching music and language lessons for over 15

April Stace
I have literally looked for years for the right trumpet teacher for my 12 year old son. JQ is a treasure. He challenges the student appropriately but is also gentle and understanding about the realities of life for a 12 year old in NYC. Cannot recommend him highly enough. Very skilled teacher, performer, and totally on point with showing up, planning ahead, etc.
Joey
Fantastic trumpet instructor. JQ is patient, receptive, encouraging—the list goes on. He's helped me go from literally not being able to make a decent note to playing a little shindig on New Year's for my family. Highly recommended. I'm still taking lessons!
Sean
I found that J.Q. was a quality tutor. He adapted to what I needed to focus on for Mandarin, which was tones, and as such I was able to improve my foundation. He also has a good knowledge of the language apart from just being fluent, and could answer any question I had. I definitely recommend him.

Naturally, we wish our eight year old daughter to continue improving and building upon her French skills. Isabelle has been terrific. She is friendly and has been easy to work with. As a native French speaker, she is the ideal choice to tutor our daughter. Living in the same time-zone has been a real plus, too. Merci!"

"I had lessons over the summer with her. It was the intensive crush course I requested and she created and kept adjusting lessons accepting my request. She accepts any question out of lesson time and also corrects my homework online. It was just helpful. She did so much more than I had expected. Now, summer is over, I am stopping my Japanese lesson for now to get back to my school work, but will definitely get back to her next summer to brush up my Japanese."
