He's patient,knowledgable and always go's the extra mile to help me during our lessons together. I've had previous teachers who charged more and are nowhere near as talented; my playing has inproved drastically since studying with him and friends have noticed..Highly Recommended!

Numan first of all is a great guitar player. He has studio experience, and has played professionally for years. He has taught me many great techniques in playing guitar. He has patience and is very clear and thorough when teaching and works at the students pace. In just a short while I was already learning some of my favorite songs, reading music, scales, music theory and writing my own tunes! I definitely recommend this teacher if you want to learn the guitar from top to bottom.

Numan is the real deal. I spent years putting off taking guitar lessons as I've never been the best student. A friend of mine recommend Numan and I thought I'd give him a try. His teaching style is very patient and thorough. He does not get frustrated and works with me at my pace. He's also the best guitar player I've ever known. In just a few months I'm playing at a level I never thought I'd be able to. I cannot recommend Numan enough.
Ciao a tutti! Hi to everyone! At my previous school in CA, teachers and students dubbed my classes "la fiesta" . Fun and serious learning happened by incorporating a variety of pedagogical approaches .

MA from Middlebury College and Universita' Di Firenze in Italian Art and Literature. Completed doctorate classes at NYU. Teaches children thorough adults and beginning through intermediate classes! A presto!
Giuliana is a wonderful teacher and guide for Italian language and culture. I really enjoyed our small class and she managed our different levels of experience very gracefully. We all learned a great deal over the course of a year together and we miss her immensely!

Giuliana is the most patient and encouraging teacher that I have yet encountered. She truly strives to make Italian entertaining as well as simple. Prior to my lessons with her, learning a whole new language seemed to be a daunting task, as well as the seemingly insurmountable goal of losing my native accent while speaking. Through our online lessons, she has taught me grammar and a vast vocabulary that served me very well in my trip to Italy. If there is one teacher who can truly teach the language quickly and easily, it's Giuliana.

Giuliana is an extraordinary teacher and instructor who makes learning fun and exciting. She is patient and accommodating, and has a true knack and talent for making sure you truly understand the material. I highly recommend her

1. Journal Writing
1-7 times per week, you will write a paragraph or two about your day or about something happening in your life--what you did, what you are thinking about, a project you are working on, etc. I will edit your writing, showing you not only grammar and spelling mistakes, but also suggesting alternative sentences to show how you can express your ideas in an eloquent, native-sounding, colloquial way.

Although I am new on Take Lessons, for the past 5 years I have been teaching students of many ages, backgrounds and abilities both online and in person. By now I've taught hundreds of students from all over the world! I love this job for 2 reasons:
1. I love to travel! I have been traveling and living overseas for most of the past 8 years and have spent time living, volunteering, working, and exploring all over Asia, Europe, Australia, and more. So far I have been to 30 countries! This job allows me to travel, which I love.
2. When I teach online, it's almost like traveling without ever having to leave my computer. The world comes to me! Sometimes I think that I learn just as much as the students just from talking with people from different places and backgrounds.
Aside from teaching English and traveling, I like: yoga, meditation/mindfulness practice, visiting eco-communities, bouldering and rock climbing, baking and cooking, and board games.
Whoever and wherever you are, it would be my pleasure to work with you. Hope to talk with you soon!

I first started tutoring in college and found that I enjoyed helping other people learn about a subject that I already loved. There is no formula for a student to learn and remember the material, but I believe it is a teacher's job to engage the students in an inviting way in the hopes they at least don't dread the subject!

"Adam was great!"
"Once we returned to the US after living in France for several years, we knew we needed a tutor for our young daughter to maintain and expand her hard-earn
ed proficiency in French. We have been with Isabelle for three years now. She continues to teach and challenge our growing daughter. One of positive aspects of the online environment is that oftentimes the lessons can continue when we travel. Merci Isabelle! xx"
