Excellent first lesson! Ying is very patient and also very good at explaining difficult concepts!
Marilyn
It was fun, and Ying was patient and willing to customize the lesson based on my experience with Mandarin and my interests.
Jill
Ting is very easy to work with. My reason for getting a tutor is primarily for verbal practice. However I’ve found Ying to be great at explaining the formatting of the Mandarin sentence structure.

My first Russian lesson with Anna was great. She was very patient with me, and went at my pace, which is much appreciated. I like that she introduced the idea of learning a bit about Russian culture, and she sent me an article which I look forward to reading.

I learned a lot from the first lesson already, very experienced and positive, highly recommended!!
Maria B.
All my three kids have enjoyed piano lessons with Marty. The oldest for more than two years! We are moving out of the country, so unfortunately we have to leave her; I wish we could take her with us! She is such a dedicated teacher. My kids have learned so much from her, not only playing the piano but also music theory. She is also flexible in scheduling, so we could always find a time that worked well for our busy family schedule. We will miss her!

My one-to-one lessons are customized to my student's needs and preferences. I will use your favorite movies, TV shows, books and music to create lesson that you find interesting and fun so you'll retain the lesson easily.
I also focus on conversation and I'll make sure we work on your accent and correct pronunciation!
I introduce grammar lessons at the end of each class so you have time to go over it yourself and have questions for next class when you also will have time to practice!

About Isa

As a teacher, I'm very proactive, which means I never settle with just a book! I enjoy creating exercises and strategies according to my students' needs and preferences. This includes incorporating music, literature, movies and games to the daily lesson. As a teacher, I'm very patient and I consider

Great teacher, he was teaching me on how to play bass and also he covered parts of guitar but what really helps when Felipe teaches he also displays real time notes, drawings, he provides pdfs, and will send you the material if needed for whatever you covered. I didn’t know how to read music and he made it clear. Don’t be afraid to ask questions or to repeat himself. He enjoys his job. 👍

"I worked with Micah for about two years and I can say she is the best English teacher for foreigners I've ever met.
She understands the pain points which most of English speakers as second language usually experience and provide the effective guidance to improve themselves.
Shortly, she knows what should be taught and how to teach them.
Besides, she is very flexible and likes working with her students, which make the class fun."

"Great Teacher! One of the nicest people I've ever met. Straightforward and patient with her students. I myself may have not been the fastest to pick up all of the vocabulary and learn the material too quickly but she was extremely patient with me and was very thorough with the education we receive. Would definitely recommend her!"

English Language Conversations for Beginners

Although words may be limited and simple, it is still possible to enjoy conversations in English even if you are a beginner. I think that it’s essential to be able to express basic needs and to clearly express your identity. Let’s get started with the very basics and then we’ll build from there. Greetings and Introductions: When meeting new people you need to be able to greet them. If you are in an informal situation you might say, “Hey, I’m (name), nice to meet you.” In order …
