Trina K.

Book Now

I have experience providing accent reduction services and ESL services to students of various age levels. I have training in speech-language therapy and linguistics which have given me background knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of speech production along with understanding of the sound systems in various languages and how that affects one’s accent.

I like to focus on the sounds as well as other factors that influence accent and language: nonverbal communication, intonation, stress, etc. It’s not always just the sound that changes how you are perceived!

Whether you want to learn English or reduce your accent for fun or for work/study, I would like to help!

About Trina

I am a nationally certified speech-language therapist who also minored in linguistics. These qualify me to teach English and accent reduction with a fine-tuned ear. I am trained in assessment of language and sound production. In the case of accent reduction, errors are not all just about sounds, bu

Great teacher.
Mary Beth Y.
I am continuing to study cello with Jamie and I am much further along than I anticipated. I also study piano, so I am not a traditional beginner cello student. Jaime is able to fine tune my lessons to take this into account and build on it. He is very knowledgeable about proper technique as well as music theory. I would recommend him without reservation for all abilities and ages.
Maureen
Jamie worked with me when I was trying to pick up cello after not playing since high school. He is extremely knowledgeable and encouraging. He's very good at identifying problems with technique and suggesting approaches to fix them, and fun to work with.

Book Now

Russian language is the fifth most widely spoken languages in the world. It’s a very beautiful and rich language.
Russian literature counts a huge number of great works (Dostoevsky, Chekhov, Tolstoy, Turgenev). Speaking Russian you will be able to read them in original.
If you want to learn a second language – it should become your new habit, possibly for the rest of your life. Of course, it does not mean that you’ll only be able to speak Russian after a few years, no. Most probably, after a few dedicated months you’ll be able to hold a simple conversation and understand a lot of what you hear.
I am a native Russian speaker. I am musician . I'll be happy to learn Russian with you.

Kathryn
Just finished my 4th class with Isabelle. She has been very helpful with my French conversation. She meets me at my level and then challenges me. She speaks clearly and at a speed I can understand. The notes after the lesson are excellent and help me to continue my learning. I highly recommend Isabelle!
Brian
"Listener" is how I would describe Isabelle, and it's why she is a great teacher. I brought a lot of random questions into lessons each week and she helped me with all of the answers. She also used the answers to my questions to show me further examples to be able to help me frame why things were the way they were. This is my first French teacher but I couldn't be happier with the time I've gotten from Isabelle. I would highly recommend her as a teacher.
LINGYI
I have been having French lessons with Isabelle for more than 6 months. I definitely have learned a lot! Isabelle is very patient and flexible about different learning methods. I highly recommend her!

I was born in Venezuela and have traveled abroad to 14 countries. Spanish is my native language. I graduated as a TESOL instructor (Teacher of English to Speakers of Other Languages) from MBI (Moody Institute, Chicago, USA).

I have been a foreign language teacher for 7 years, currently specializing in teaching Spanish as a foreign language - Spanish is an official United Nations Language, and is spoken by 572 million people in more than 20 countries.

My classes are fun and engaging. I am creative and believe in visual aids, this helps students to remember the lesson. Become fluent in Spanish.

About Yrama

I grew up half of my life in Caracas-Venezuela (speaking Spanish) and the other half in the USA (learning English). In the middle, I lived in the Middle East, teaching English as a second language for 8 years. I learned English in the USA in the university and I am learning Arabic now. I believe

Angela
Yrama has not only helped me improve my Spanish, she has improved my life with her authenticity and willingness to gently correct me. Beyond her formal training as an educator, her vast experiences as a mother who homeschooled her children and a volunteer working with youth has helped her know how a variety of students learn. She has also studied English and Arabic, so she understands the challenges present in learning a foreign language. Yrama has an extensive cultural knowledge, which makes her more in touch with and able to analyze her own latino culture, which is intrinsic to language learning. She is upbeat, laughs easily, and kind which makes learning fun and comfortable. I hope you enjoy learning with Yrama.
Seda
Because Yrama is, as a professional, committed to the growth and development of her students, she puts her whole self into her teaching, as all great teachers do, and finds the best way for each individual student to learn. I guarantee that you will learn and that you will have fun at the same time. Yrama is a wonderful person to learn from and as a native speaker who knows how to break down the Spanish language so anyone can capture it, you are bound to be speaking it in no time!
Aaron
Yrama started teaching me Spanish when all I could say were basic greetings . She helped me over a two year period to go from a beginner to fluent. We focused on the principle "learn a little, & use it a lot," so I would learn a simple phrase and use it with 10 people at work (I worked at a restaurant with a lot of Latinos). With this "game plan" I was able to have success.

French Pronunciation Guide: Best Tips for Mastering French Vowels

French vowel sounds got you feeling tongue-tied? Tutor Tyler S. shares his best tips to proper French pronunciation... Everyone faces their own personal challenges when learning a foreign language, and I remember that mastering the French vowel system was a great challenge for me. French pronunciation uses approximately 15 vowels, and it uses sounds that English doesn’t include. There are extensive books dedicated to describing these vowels, but you don’t need to be an expert to use …
