About Elisha
First of all, congratulations on having the courage and self-discipline to do what most others do not: learn a new language. The hard part is over! You've already begun the learning process and now all you need is someone to give you the guidance, support, and tools to help you along the way.

I hold my students to high standards, believing that setting consistent and high expectations is the key to success and improvement. I encourage students to reach these standards by providing honest feedback about their strengths and weaknesses, actively listening, and individualizing every lesson. Though I set high standards for students, I expect and even encourage them to make mistakes. Making mistakes is the best way to begin getting better and lets me know what areas we should work on together.

About Yae
My family was enthusiastic about international cultures, and so I became an English teacher in Japan. I taught English to Junior High School students in Osaka for more than 10 years. During this time I realized the importance of experiencing other cultures first-hand, so I went to the US and studied Psychology at the SUNY Buffalo, where I obtained a Bachelor Degree in 2003. Afterwards, I returned for more than 10 years to Japan, where I taught English at the Junior High and High School levels in Nagoya, and worked for the establishment of a General Consulate in Nagoya for the nation of Myanmar. About two years ago I returned back to the US, and I hope to share my international experiences and language skills with my students.

About Azadeh
I am an independent professional visual artist, with over 20 years' hands on teaching experience in U.S. and abroad.
At the age of 13, I began learning how to paint with my father, who is an established artist, in an informal studio class. Later, I decided to pursue higher education in fine arts and received my BFA and MFA degrees. While working on my Bachelor’s degree, I began teaching in schools and later in my private studio.
My expertise is to help others to discover their special talent, as I believe every person has a unique sense of creation. As an experienced art teacher and mentor, I have always provided a solid education for every one of my students and I have demonstrated an ability to engage students from diverse academic backgrounds and age groups.
My goal is to develop an understanding of and enthusiasm for arts in others
by addressing different learning styles. I demonstrate both traditional practices and contemporary critical and technical approaches to painting.

Along with coursework and research, being a professional visual artist has shaped who I am as a teacher. Through experiencing variety of techniques I have become familiar with alternate ways of visualizing and pushing the boundaries of innovation. I would love to share this perspective with my students whenever possible.

Enjoy one on one art class with me and let me help you to discover the power of your inner artist!

About Emily
I LOVE having FUN while we learn. So, that means singing, laughing, smiling, being silly to break the ice...I incorporate fun activities to learning to help ease the tension of the classroom for the Learner. It is amazing what a little laughter can do to defuse the bewildered, confused 'I don't know what I'm doing?' look on a Learner's face.

I am in love with pronunciation! I strive very hard to instill in Learners the proper (over) enunciated sound of a phonics blend, letter sound or word pronunciation for them to hear what it should sound like and with practice, they can hear themselves and thus find their 'English voice'.

I do believe each Learner is seeking to find their 'English voice' and with time, hearing the language, practicing what they hear, and applying by speaking they will acquire their own 'English voice' and not s
top speaking in their new tongue!

I enjoy teaching very much! It is an innate ability I have with no stress or restraint. I am very creative and thrive in my creativity when I teach; using a diverse amount of objects to assist in the diverse abilities of the Learners.

I look forward to seeing you in the classroom!

About Noa
Dear Students,

I’m a born and bred Israeli who graduated from Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Ben Gurion’s dream university in the middle of the southern desert. I served in the IDF, trained to use an UZI.

Although I managed offices and was a top salesperson for Jet Lag Jeans, I always gravitated back to teaching Hebrew. Working with five-year-olds, i developed interactive dance and word games. Teaching ten-year-olds, I drew pictures of Hebrew words, creating stories where students practiced new vocabulary. For young adults, taught vocabulary, then designed groups and pairings to use the new vocabulary in conversation.

In tutoring, I work from a student’s strengths to build confidence and introduce new challenging material in steps, simplifying as we go. Mastering new concepts with my students is my specialty.

I hold a do
uble major in Behavioral Science and Human Resources. I won scholarships for academic excellence three years in a row at the university. I have a teaching certificate for Jazz/Modern instruction. The IDF sent me to learn computer programs and I received an Excel, Windows Certificate. From the Omega Institute in Tel Aviv, Israel, I am a certified psycho therapist who is qualified to counsel people.

Seeing a student change in front of my eyes is beautiful. Helping students master a language created with the birth of Israel gives me satisfaction. Guiding learning with my students until they believe in themselves rewards me as well as them.
