I bring a passion to teaching Spanish that stems from being a teacher for over 30 years! I want to help students learn in a fun way by conversations that spark joy. I can help you with your homework, or we can talk about your favorite sports, art or movie. I believe that the best way to learn is when you can connect with the material and incorporate it into your everyday life!

Oliva's lessons are extremely informative. I appreciate her emphasis on proper grammar. I am so grateful that she is patient, and she encourages you to verbalize and ask questions at any point in her teaching. She is an excellent educator hence I have no hesitation in recommending more students to her classes.

Olivia is awesome! She is poetic, thoughtful and hilarious. We are only a few lessons in, but I have already learned so much about how to approach learning Spanish and am so excited for our future lessons!

Taught American Sign Language (ASL) full-time and part-time (nights) for 39 years, just recently retired from full-time teaching. I have primarily used Signing Naturally (SN) workbooks, all levels. I have also used Learning American Sign Language (LASL).

I am really enjoying having Woo as an instructor. He spends a lot of time working with pronunciation in the beginning, and targeting where I was weakest. I have been extremely impressed with his instruction technique, and already feel like I am learning a lot. Definitely recommend him as an instructor.
Angela M.
As an instructor, he is very professional and personable. He thoroughly explains the steps as he goes along, and works with the student at their level. That was nice so that I didn't feel overwhelmed. I like that he tailors lessons to the individual's goals. For a first session, I feel that I learned more than I expected to. I am looking forward to future sessions.

I've been teaching Russian language for 19 years.

I offer Russian Language lessons/classes:
Reading,
Writing,
Grammar,
Conversation
Language development,
Pronunciation,
Social Language Use.

My lessons are based on dialogue and discussions. I have found this strategy extremely effective and beneficial in developing strong instructor-to-students relationships.

I think it is very important to study the Russian language in close connection with Russian culture. I try to choose topics that interest the students, help them feel comfortable and lower their anxiety about making mistakes.

Has me cracking up every session!) Hunter makes you feel completely comfortable but knows how to get serious and touch and get stuff done. I’m really starting to notice a difference in the way I talk and the way I sound. She gives you very simple, very effective exercises for practice in between sessions an good memory hooks. Very organized and an excellent understanding of the work and accents in general. Fantastic teacher. I’m sure you’ll love her."

"Aksana is an awesome professor! From the comfort of my home, I meet with Aksana weekly for my Russian lesson over video chat. Each lesson is structured, as we have the Russian book of lessons that we go through to review grammar rules and new vocab lists. In addition, each lesson consists of a lot of free form dialogue back and forth, completely in Russian! Aksana is very patient, repeating words many times so you can ensure you are having a natural pronunciation! She also sends audio clips so that I can listen to the vocab from a native speaker accent as well. Aksana always has interesting facts to understand why and how the language came to be as it is. Overall, the class is extremely informative but also fun and we get to practice actual conversation!"
