Esther is an excellent teacher. Patient, funny and creative. She meets you where you are. Highly recommended.
Margaret
Instructor is very energetic and enthusiastic. Conversation is interesting, and she stops to make necessary corrections to my Spanish.
Marc M.
Esther is a great teacher and I highly recommend her, especially to those who want to improve their fluency and to those (like me) who are just too afraid to start speaking Spanish. Lessons with her are always fun and interesting, and she always knows how to explain everything in a simple and understandable way!

I have a good teaching experience about 20 years.I am Ph.D in Hindi Language and Literature. I am certified for teaching Hindi as a subject and as well as a language from a recognized University . I believe Hindi as an international language improving itself day by day with the richness of it's grammar , vocabulary and usage. Basically it starts from Barahkhadi and the two types of Varnas like Swar and Vyanjan . The uniqueness of matras and the pronunciation of vyanjan , make this language really different. It seems difficult but as a teacher I have my uniqueness to teach you in the manner by which it will be very easy , adoptable and of course interesting .

Find your English accent without losing your uniqueness! I help students acquire a clear and expressive American English accent. If typical approaches to English pronunciation don't work for you, I can help. My approach is physical as opposed to learning by hearing and imitating sounds. I have worked with seasoned professionals as well as newly arrived immigrants just beginning to learn English. My students often have a strong command of the language, but are concerned that they aren't being fully heard and understood. You will find a pleasant and supportive studio where I create an individualized plan tailored to your goals and needs. You already have a good voice--you can build on that and enhance your American English in your professional and social life.

About Jennifer

If conventional approaches to improving your speaking voice aren't working for you, I can help. A teacher since 1999, I draw on a wide range of experiences and techniques. I can work with you to create an easy, enjoyable plan.I've worked with children, high school/college students, professional act

Jennifer has identified several ways that I use my voice inefficiently (my description - she is much kinder in her choice of words). My homework is concrete and substantive enough so that I can experience a different way of speaking. One example is what to do with my tongue when I say specific words. I think this could make a real difference for me.
Dmitry
I enjoyed my conversation with Jennifer. She taught me some useful exercises that help to cope with my stress. Look forward to the next lessons with Jennifer. Thank you!
Robyn
Jen is great! Knowledgable and kind.
