Hi! My name is Kate and I have been teaching Spanish for more than 5 years, both in private schools and online. I have a DELE certificate (Diploma of Spanish as a Foreign Language) of C1 level(Advanced), as well as a «Competent Language Instructor» certificate that I got in a well known language school in Kiev, where I worked after I completed a course dedicated to Spanish teaching methodology. In addition, I have two years of experience as a translator in different projects and one year in a Spanish company in Kiev.

I'm 29 and I'm from Ukraine so my native languages are Ukrainian and Russian, but I started learning Spanish when I was nine years old, so I have been learning it for 20 years. I have studied very intensively for the past 8 years and I'm still looking for new topics from which I can learn. I'm in permanent contact with native speakers from Spain and various Latin American countries so I can easily explain to you the differences between distinct varieties of language.

Kate is very thorough and very knowledgeable with the language. I felt very comfortable with her as I had some questions and she explained in a way that I wouldn't feel embarrassed once she completed her explanation. She made me feel very relaxed and I look forward to the rest of my sessions with her.

Using phonetic tools and charts, I help students control their entire body in the production of a wide range of English dialects and foreign accents. Dialect coaching encompasses basic sounds of the language to the prosody (intonation). Depending on the needs of the individual, we work on subtlety and stereotypes. Great for actors in performances or linguists in academia.

About Matthew

I am a world traveler with over 13 years of tutoring experience. I also have weight trained for about 15 years. Currently working on my PhD in sociolinguistics at the University of Pittsburgh, I received my MA in Spanish from NYU and can help you with many different areas. My experience as an edito

The first session with Matthew, I can tell things are going to be okay. This makes me feel better; I could say right off the bat; he knows what he is teaching.
Cathy B.
Currently taking lessons with Matthew after extensive search due to my intricate schedule and English level. Matthew's background, experience, presentation, and - during this time period - flexibility, make him an outstanding instructor. Highly recommended!

Regardless of whether I am teaching language, civilization, or literature, my main goal is to help keep my students engaged, interested, and challenged in learning. In teaching the French language I focus on developing strong conversational skills, as well as writing and reading. To supplement the class session, I use online resources, authentic documents, and regular assessment of oral and listening language skills.

About Marc

I have been teaching French at universities for 30 years and would love to share my passion for the language, literature, history, and culture to students. French is my first language, and I have spent many years living in French-speaking countries; I have lived in Vietnam, Lebanon, Morocco, and (o

It's been 3/4 year since we've been with her, and she is absolutely awesome! She totally earned my daughter's respect. Meeting a right teacher is so important because it took some time to correct the bad habit she aquired and continued that her previous teacher let go. Ms. Kan is absolutely one of the best teacher we had so far!
Larry S.
Kan is wonderful!
Elizabeth
Kan seemed very qualified and the first lesson or so went well with the exception of hearing her child cry on and off throughout the lesson and make an appearance on camera as well. We tried to be understanding. Unfortunately we learned she has quite a temper. Our Internet went down and caused problems in our Skype connection. We tried to contact her and Skype said she was unavailable. It took some time to unravel it. When we finally got back in touch with Kan 16 minutes after the lesson started, instead of listening and understanding that we had technical problems, she yelled at us and kept brandishing her phone at the camera to "prove" that she was ready for the lesson. She barely let us get a word in. She very firmly told us we would be paying for the lesson and continued to hold her phone up to the camera. We wanted to just continue the lesson in it's shortened form, but she refused to put her phone down and kept talking over us. Our goal was to remedy the situation; after this, we wanted nothing further to do with Kan. She upset our daughter and that's the end of that. Be warned.

I was getting ready for a trip with my friends to tour all over in Russia this Summer and I found Sergey and he taught me a great deal of what I will need to communicate enough to get a round in Russia...
He is an excellent teacher Thank you Sergey for your great help in teaching me I know this will be a trip to remember thanks to you...
Patti C.
Terrible experience. Couldn't connect online, 20 minutes after start time called him and he tried to assist, but ended up doing a "phone lesson" which consisted of a question and answer time where I had to come up with my own questions. To conclude we were told to go out and take some pictures on our own and learn from experimenting on our own taking pictures of all kinds of things. We could then download them, send to him, and he could critique.
Not what I expected. Not necessarily his fault, but Going to ask for refund

when I made an appointment, I asked if Sergey was familiar with my camera and they said yes. It seemed new to him. But after talking about my fijifilm x100F, I am returning the camera. So overall I did like Sergey and look forward to my next Hour

"I was signed up for a series of half-hour lessons, but Pantelis worked to get as much good work into that time as possible. He zeroed in on my weak spots and we worked on those, both together via Google hangouts and by myself using online classrooms that I was totally unaware of before taking these lessons. I had a tiny background in the language when we started, but he made the most of it. It was a great experience. During the time we were working together, he left town and was actually talking to me from his home in Greece, although it took me a while to figure that out. He was able to report on what was happening on the island while he was there. I recommend Pantelis as a teacher without reservation."
