I am a graduate of Brown University with honors in Italian Studies and Performance Studies. I am a fluent speaker, having lived in Florence, Rome, and Sicily. I work with students to improve their understanding of grammar, their pronunciation, reading comprehension, vocabulary, conversation skills, and writing. I also have an extensive knowledge of Italian culture, history, and literature from my studies and research and am happy to share this with interested students. At Brown, I tutored students in the Italian Department through the dean of the college's tutoring center, and I have worked as a tutor with students of all levels in Providence and New York.

Asuka is exceptional. Hard to process how someone as accomplished as she could be this patient. Encouraging and positive. Wonderful teacher.

Asuka, was wonderful. I've been looking forward to learning Japanese for a long time. She is very detailed and patient. Excellent teacher!

On behalf of my son who is 15. Before finding Asuka, Lukas had taken voice lessons from several very good teachers (between breaks we would experiment with teachers).
Now with Asuka he feels most comfortable and feels he learns more per lesson with Asuka. More progress with all aspects of voice. She helps prepare for auditions with Broadway vocals and advance on the more serious and challenging Opera selections.
So the actual lessons are great and Asuka is also a charm; engaging and personable. As the parent I very much like she remains a professional singer as her career.
So we are staying with Asuka through the breaks and may even extend into piano lessons as well.
I would recommend Asuka without hesitation.

Kerstin is a fantastic teacher. She connected right away with my daughter Chloe who is 8 years old and immediately engaged and had her learning German after 1 lesson. She is punctual and professional. I highly recommend her.

She was absolutely patient and was able to work with and engage my son who has a learning disability. She did a great job making him feel comfortable and after only one session I could see his confidence go up as he continued to draw into the evening. She really enjoys what she does and it shows in the way she worked with my son.

Levels taught: beginner, intermediate, advanced.

Russian is my native language, and I can help you with anything from learning the alphabet, to grammar, pronunciation and more advanced skills. In order to make the learning process as informative and interesting as possible, primarily for students, a modern teacher must use additional materials at the lesson. Of course, my materials contain a sufficient amount of learning aids that contribute to a more productive and meaningful assimilation of the new theoretical material. From my experience I can promise you - in a few lessons you will be able to maintain the simplest dialogue and read short stories.

I am coming to the cello as a brand new beginner. I have play around with some fretted instruments, ukulele, banjo, etc. But Irina was super at getting me relaxed, focused on basics and encouraging me with small, but important mechanics and technical details. I have taken other music lessons like sax, so could compare. I totally enjoyed the start of my cello training.
Oh, btw, I'm retired and over 65!!!

I've been teaching Turkish for 14 years and my students have gone from total beginner to intermediate level. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to introduce yourself and speak about basic conversational subjects and as time goes on you'll be able to speak about many more specific topics. I can work with you on your written and oral understanding skills as well as written and oral producing. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

It is not easy to find the right teacher, but I think Sara's friendly manner of teaching on one hand and expertise on another make it a perfect match for any student who is ready to learn. Sara was very attentive to my needs and answered all my questions. I loved the detailed evaluation and a very clear explanation of each subject we discussed. I am inspired and eager to continue.

Aside from being one of the most caring and sweet humans I have ever encountered, she is a dedicated lesson-planner and instructor who is sure to help you progress in your Mandarin studies. I can say with absolute certainty that, as a non-native speaker, I could not have progressed to an advanced level of Chinese without knowing Zhenni. She is truly skilled at making Chinese language and culture feel cozy and familiar--a real gem!"

"Great teacher! Uses established course textbooks to guide the classes, yet adds custom lessons tailored to your needs or focus. Hiromi makes sure to challenge you on your trouble spots by preparing custom focused instruction. Within my first set of 5 lesson my skills improved dramatically. Even without being able to speak fluently, I could understand the large majority of my business meetings in Japan. In less than 2 months I have been able to learn correct, day to day conversational speaking that covers a variety of subjects and life necessities. Highly recommended!"

"Kerstin has been a great teacher for my two sons. Kerstin always made an special effort to provide teaching material that was not only age appropriate and appropriate for their level of proficiency, but was also tailored to their particular interests. Her teaching style is methodical, while also casual and interactive, and thus well suited to provide a positive learning experience, particularly for children and adolescents. Both my children have benefited greatly from her teaching and I would recommend her highly."
