Asuka is exceptional. Hard to process how someone as accomplished as she could be this patient. Encouraging and positive. Wonderful teacher.
Shaelyn
Asuka, was wonderful. I've been looking forward to learning Japanese for a long time. She is very detailed and patient. Excellent teacher!
Lukas
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.

Добро пожаловать!

Russian language spoken by over 250 million people. It is a beautiful language that grew and developed as loyal companion to the unique Russian culture. It's development was shaped with by some of the best writers and poets in the world, such as Pushkin and Tolstoy.

I believe that teaching a language without a well integrated cultural component is akin to crime, as doing so will deprive the student of opportunity of obtaining a gateway to understanding Russian culture... and perhaps a "mysterious Russian soul."

Unlike other subjects, where a curriculum is closely followed, Russian lessons are vibrant and are designed to promote fluency in conversation reading and writing. Poetry, videos and music are are integrated into the lesson plan - making learning efficient and fun.

Aleksander helped my son prepare for Regents Exams in Math (Algebra, Geometry and Trig.), English and SAT. The results were spectacular. He graduated high school with 98% average in Math and English. He scored above 1500 on the SAT and was accepted into a school of his choice with a scholarship. Aleksander guided us through with college application process, helped fill out FAFSA, and helped my son select a major he is happy with. Great instructor! Great person!

I am a native Spanish speaker who was born and raised in Mexico. I have been teaching Spanish in schools and language centers for the past 5 years.

You will have the full Spanish language immersion experience in my classes. I will use Spanish to explain grammar and vocabulary instead of English or translation. This way, you get more experience interacting in the language and progress at a faster rate. I also use online tools, like images and the materials, in order to facillitate understanding as much as possible.

My classes are conversational and all levels are welcome. Depending on the level and needs of the student, we will follow a curriculum program so that you are learning new vocabulary and grammar each class, and progressing in the language. And as a native speaker, I can provide pronunciation corrections and natural examples of idioms and phrases that are used every day in Spanish-speaking countries.

Students who prefer the challenge of speaking 100% in Spanish or ...

Carlos helped me review for my Spanish 2 exam at the last minute. I really appreciated his flexibility to accomodate me over the weekend, and on short notice. I did much better on my test than I expected! I hope to take more lessons with him in the future.

First lesson went very well. This was my first time in an online class so I don´t have anything to compare it to. But I liked it.

Teacher Carlos was very helpful and I learned a lot of great expressions for my upcoming trip. He helped me a lot with my pronunciation and understanding how to use idioms in Spanish.

"I've been taking lessons with Suyeon for 5 weeks now and it has made a huge difference. Suyeon is patient, friendly, and encouraging. She makes the material easy to understand and is happy to answer questions. I began our lessons with almost no knowledge of the language and already I have learned how to construct basic sentences, ask and answer simple questions, politely order food, count, tell time, and conjugate verbs. I actually learned more in our first lesson than in the entire month I tried to teach myself, because even though I was very motivated to learn, much of the information I found on the internet was either incorrect or incomplete. So happy with my decision to hire Suyeon. I definitely recommend it!"

We talked about the possibility of doing a fun outing for example going out in town and using our Italian only to talk about what is happening and what we are doing.
