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.

"I started learning german with Angela 4 years ago as a near complete beginner once weekly for 1 hour. She prepared me for my Goethe Institut B2 Exam, which I successfully passes in September of 2017. I have made much progress since and will continue to take classes with Angela. Having a native speaker language teacher is priceless. She is experienced, dedicated and always prepared! I highly recommend her to everyone wanting to learn german or improve their german. You can do no better!"
