About Alan
Hi, my name is Alan. I am a college graduate who is deaf and fluent in ASL, but can also speak and lipread well. I had volunteered to teach a sign language class to a group of hearing students in a local public library. I have been teaching/tutoring ASL privately for 12 years. I would love to help you learn ASL and interact with deaf people using the expressive and receptive skills that I have mastered throughout my life. I am a very patient teacher who would like to see you become successful in conversing in ASL. I am available to provide you with my tutoring service in the mornings, afternoons or evenings during the week. Please contact me if you are interested.

Alan is a great teacher. His lessons offer a real mix of technical practice and information on deaf culture which I was looking for. He is flexible with time and always willing to 'chat' a few minutes longer than the lessons require. I would recommend him to anyone interested in learning (or improving their prior knowledge of) ASL online.

Alan is always well prepared and very thorough throughout lessons. I’m an adult student with a lot of experience learning languages. Alan challenges me without overwhelming me, slows me down so I’m sure to learn it instead of rushing ahead.

I have been teaching for 5 years. I have been blessed with a talent for language and its related areas. This is both my gift and my passion. I have spent years honing and sharpening my skills in both English and Latin. This has created in me a desire to share this knowledge through teaching. I have found I do this best online. I can reach a wide group and have diversity in both students and approaches.

About Gina
Hello!
I am Gina and I am a specialist in Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and French. I have been teaching and tutoring foreign languages since 1990. I teach adults, college students, high school and elementary students. I have taught in schools, community programs, language classes for businesses, in person and online. I can help you prepare for an exam or class, teach you language for business or travel- or just for the love of the language.

I have been multilingual since a young age and have always had a passion for languages. I studied multiple languages in school and went on to earn both a Bachelors and a Masters degree (University of Connecticut) in Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and French language and literature.

I am an active member of multiple foreign language groups in my community, including the Alliance Française of Ch
arleston, Nuovo Cinema Italiano film club, Dante Society of Charleston, Cercle Littéraire, Brasileiros em Charleston, Conversemos en Español, and other conversation and language groups.

I do translation and interpretation work, travel extensively, do foreign language tours and am very passionate about sharing my love of the Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and French languages.

My focus in teaching is how to acquire a foreign language just as one acquires their native language, making that language a part of one’s life.

Whether you are brand new to the language or have been studying for awhile- I would love to be your guide on your language journey!

Gina is very flexible with her teaching approach. She meets me at my level. She slows down when I may not be grasping a concept and speeds up to keep me engaged.
I would whole-heartedly recommend her!

In 2013 I gave up a longstanding career in Logistics and Imports to pursue my passion for fitness and education, and I have not looked back since. I enjoy helping others to learn and expand their horizons through language and movement. One of the reasons I became an ESL instructor is because I wanted to experience culture and diversity. I am truly blessed to have been given this wonderful opportunity to impart my own knowledge while learning from others.

I am certified as a teacher of English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) and English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). I am also ACE-Certified as a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor, specialized in Core Fitness, Senior Fitness Training and Functional Fitness. I train clients in their homes and online.

“I've tried to learn English for a long time and, though I learned a big amount of words , I wasn't able of having a short conversation with nobody. Teacher Beverly have been making a great job by identifying my difficulties and then working hard straight on it at abslutely enjoyable online classes. I'm really happy because in a few time I've improved my English skills as I've never did before, nevertheless I'm sure that there are so much to be learnt from her yet.”

Zaray has been my teacher for over 4 years and has been amazing! She taught me mostly everything about music and helped me get accepted into one of the best schools in Florida. I took singing lessons and piano lessons that helped me learn a lot, because of her I was able to preform in new York and attend the All-state elementary choir. Overall an excellent teacher, I really recommend!

Zaray has done such great work. She really takes the time to diagnose the problem with her stellar ear and to prescribe the best exercises to enhance the vocal mechanism. Not only does she have an abundant technical vocabulary, she really personalizes her style of teaching for each student. Apart from being technically a wizard, she is one of the most joyful people to be around. Her calm demeanor and easy going self really makes a student of every level comfortable. I highly recommend!!

About Alina
你好 !My name is 强耀萱, but if you are a beginner you can just call me “Alina” for now. Firstly, I speak standard Mandarin Chinese from North Eastern China, which is the same kind of pronunciation you would find in professional teaching material at universities and is also stipulated by the Peoples Republic of China. Secondly, I have over ten years experience teaching second language to all ages and proficiency levels. I particularly have experience in teaching school children Chinese. I am also proficient in preparing students to take the Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK). Thirdly, my bachelors degree is in English Education, so I understand important pedological methods and can explain grammar and cultural concepts to beginner level students.

Alina is wonderful. There's just no substitute for a professional teacher like her if you really want to learn a language. I think this is especially true for a language that is as difficult and foreign (to an English speaker at least) as Mandarin. Thanks to Alina, I finally have gotten the hang of the tones and am learning the characters for real. I LOVE the textbook she teaches out of--it's part of a very thorough series of Chinese language-learning textbooks, the sort you would use in an actual class at a university or in an immersion program. In addition, she prepares pdfs which she sends me to supplement the textbook vocabulary/grammar. We're on chapter 6 now and I'm feeling very excited and motivated because after years of wanting to learn Mandarin and dabbling casually with various materials, I feel that I've finally begun to make progress.

Alina, in addition to being a great teacher, is also a very warm and considerate person. She won't make you feel pressured or uncomfortable if you aren't perfectly prepared for your lesson. She's also been very conscientious about sending materials, being on time for our lessons, and making sure that I understood all of the lesson material, even if it means going a little over the designated hour. I highly recommend her to anyone who is serious about learning Mandarin.

About Traci
Hello!

I am a Russian Linguist with 6 years of experience using the language. I graduated from the Russian program at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California. After graduation, I went on to work as a Russian translator in the military, where I utilized the language on a daily basis for 5 years.

I have worked with native speakers for a long time and have a great understanding of Russian culture and history as well.

Learning a language presents many challenges, which differ from person to person. As a native English speaker who is now fluent in another language, I have a great understanding of how to explain concepts in a way easiest for the learner to comprehend.

After 3 years of tutoring experience, I would love to help you further your Russian Language skills!

About Rossina
"The teacher doesn't explain it well." 
"When will I ever use this?" 
"I just need to pass this math class to graduate." 
"I'm just not a math person!"

These are some of the things I've heard over the years as a math tutor, with the latter being the most challenging to overcome. It was the first thing I heard from my first student--my best friend--when I started tutoring about ten years ago. It was and still is her core belief that she is not a "math person," but I was delighted to help her with the challenge she faced.

My friend was attending college intermittently, and her goal was to receive her Associates Degree. It was actually a frustrating experience for her because she failed the required math class three times, and when I started helping her about 2/3 of the way through the semester of the fourth attempt, she had an F. Long sto
ry short, she raised her grade to an A, and I was so proud of her!

From then on, I realized that I wanted to pursue math tutoring as a full-time profession. I find great joy helping my students overcome their challenges, and it's also been a great learning experience working with them. The most important things I've learned to do and have refined over the years are:

1. Creating positive rapport with students and families. 
2. Communicating clearly about goals and how they can be best achieved. 
3. Achieving desired results by adapting to different learning styles. 
4. Establishing a strong foundation in basic math skills, so that success in higher-level classes is achieved. 
5. Being punctual, consistent, and intuitively attentive to students. 
6. Using technology to conduct online lessons.

It truly has been a wonderful and sometimes challenging experience being a math tutor, but I take my job seriously, always looking for ways to grow and learn to be a better tutor. At the end of the day, the most satisfying remark I've heard and always hope for from students is, "This is actually kind of fun now that I get it."
