About Dr. Jeanne
*Hi and welcome!!

My students like to call me Dr. Jeanne, so feel free to do the same! I have been in music all my life and I love helping my students no matter what level they may be.from beginning to advanced. My experience in music started on stage at age three and by the time I was 21 I was singing and dancing on national television in many variety tv shows after having won the tittle of Miss Memphis. I studied music at Stephens College in Columbia, MO and the University of California in music andI have since taught hundreds of voice and piano students everything I know about music and performance. Piano is a joy to teach, but my greatest love is teaching voice .I specialize in all styles of music as long as I feel it is musical, developmental and expressive.. Music takes time and discipline to master and I'm looking forward t
o meeting you and hearing all about your goals and dreams in music and how I can help you along your path.

I absolutely love working with Dr. Jeanne! She helps me reach my full potential and I feel more confident every time. I can definitely feel my progress and a change in both my voice and my confidence after only a few lessons. Singing has always been a passion of mine and I love that Dr.Jeanne understands that passion and motivates me to do my best! So grateful to be working with her!

About Karina
I am a certified teacher of English, Russian and French languages with 10 years of experience. During my university years, I had been living in the United Kingdom in 2004 and 2006. I have been teaching students from all over the world. During many years of teaching, I made up a lot of seminars, practical lessons, interactive exercises, slideshows with different tasks in order to help students start speaking fluently and promptly understand English and French-speaking people. I have got my Master's degree in Applied Linguistics in 2007 and started my teaching career in the same year. Since then teaching became not just my job but my passion. I am fond of learning and applying new techniques and approaches in teaching foreign languages to students of all ages and different levels. My primary goal is to make my tutorials interesting and effe
ctive in order to develop practical skills in speaking and understanding foreign languages that will last a lifetime. In August 2017 I became a CELTA certified teacher of English/ESL. I welcome new students!!!

Taruna seems very good at getting kids interested in learning. My kids had their first session yesterday and she kept the conversations a mix of Hindi and English - that probably was a big reason my kids felt comfortable and ready to continue learning with her. Also, she is pleasant and welcoming.

I've had a wonderful experience learning Hindi with Taruna. I went to classes for over a year, and learned more than I would have imagined.
She has multiple academic resources to help make learning experience easier and fun, as well as helps students practice different skills in each class.
She covers all areas (speaking, reading, listening, grammar, writing) with a well defined methodology, that help to learn gradually but steadily.

She wrote the books used for the sessions, which I find very intuitive because they grow in complexity as you read.

I also found quite helpful that she was flexible with the hours available, otherwise it would be very challenging to find a good time for the class due to my job requirements.

Thanks!

I hired Bruno to help me comprehend my book for class. He showed up and genuinely cared that I was getting it. He showed me a note taking idea that to me seemed that if I just wrote a couple of ideas down I’d go back and know where I was as far as going back and studying. He asked if I needed to write this point down and basically showed how to do the job. Great work.

Mr. Barbosa is a very outgoing person who always checks in on his students before we begin the lesson. At the
beginning of the lesson, we start with warm-ups so our voice is
ready to sing high or low notes. When you first start with Mr. Bar-
bosa, he will have you sing multiple songs and scales so he can
learn your vocal range. Mr. Barbosa makes sure that you understand
the content and if you don't, he is helpful and explains it in a way we
can comprehend. Lessons are a great way to improve your singing.
I’m becoming more comfortable performing in front of my peers.

My name is Pascale. I am a native French speaker, born in Versailles. I graduated from the University of Paris with a Master’s degree in Education and now live in the United States, in Nevada. I have been teaching 20 years in a multi-faceted environment including one-on-one tuition, and in the classroom. I am capable of teaching at all levels from elementary school to university, using a palette of techniques leading to easy assimilation of the language by the student.

I am eager to share with you my knowledge not only of French language but also French culture, society and way of life. I offer a variety of courses whether you’re starting from scratch, studying at school, brushing up on your conversational skills or practicing business French for the workplace. I can also create specialized courses for those who have professional goal
s.
My lessons focus on the four aspects of language learning for everyday life: Listening and speaking, reading and writing.

I started to teach in France in elementary schools. When I moved in United States, I worked as a French substitute teacher in high schools. In order to enrich my professional experience, I taught at college-level and worked for foreign language institutions providing immersion programs to children, and adults. Concurrently, I have been tutoring High School students, in collaboration with their teachers, to help them improve their skills, grades and self-confidence in the language.

I would highly recommend Pascale to anyone searching for a French teacher. Pascale is a very good instructor. I had different instructors and classes in the past but I was struggling and thought I will never learn French. I then decided to give myself another chance and I found Pascale. I had 4 classes already and I am very happy. Pascale is a professional teacher. She has tons of material and demos to help you understand better. She is very patient with me. Pascale is always prepared for a class. She motivates and encourages me to learn. Besides her native French she speaks very good and clear English so it really helps if you are a beginner.

She is always receptive to my suggestions and always has fun lessons organized. Our discussions help me improve my speaking, and I love her positive, helpful manner. I know you will enjoy working with her too.

About Basma
I am a professional English/ Arabic teacher and translator/ Interpreter. I have a Bachelors of Arts in Arabic/ English Translation and Interpretation

Language students can expect to improve week to week in their conversation, reading and writing techniques. Every student has a unique way of learning; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundation techniques in order to unlock their own individual talent. I can help any student to speak with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach Arabic and English students of all different ages and experience levels. I am native Arabic and studied English for 16 years, and English/ Arabic university level language for 4 of those. I can teach students to speak, write and read Arabic and English and pursue communication excellence, to learn how to speak colloquial Arabic, or both
depending on the goals and preference of the student.

As a professional interpreter, I frequently take trips within California to provide interpretation services. I have interpreted and translated for well-known entities in the United Arab Emirates like Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, Dubai Education Council and Abu Dhabi Police.
I love to mentor students who want to become effective, dynamic speakers.

My personal passion is reading but I firmly believe that writing is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better linguist!

I am working in Business and I already graduated from my Bachelor and I'm currently doing my MBA here in the States. I'm Italian and I would love to teach my language abroad since I love to be an italian ambassador abroad.
I have done this second job since I started moving around for study and work.
I want to focus my classes on discovering not only the language but also the culture. I would love to teach you the language while doing super fun activities such as cooking together italian dishes. I'm also a hard-worker and I want to see improvements.
My family was hosting american students who were carrying out their studying abroad program in Florence when i was younger and so I'm used to teach italian to americans. It is actually super fun also for me!!

Hello Everyone,

Do you want to learn Korean (Vancouver/Burnaby/Richmond)? Are you planning to travel or work in Korea? Do you like watching Korean TV shows or dramas? Do you want to experience what Korean culture is like?

I am here to help you ! I was born born in Korea, living in Canada for more than 10 years. I completed a certificate named "Translation and Interpretation for Business (Korean-English) from University of British Columbia. As a native speaker, I have more than 7 years experience to teach Korean in one to one and class setting, from children to adult professionals. My teaching approach is focused on how to make it easy for English speakers to read and write in Korean as soon as possible.

Upon graduation, I have served as a translator and an interpreter at an immigration consulting firm. I found that my profession
al experience as an interpreter provided me with a broad view that is useful in assisting students with projects and assignments. These experiences have built my confidence and an interest in teaching. I have been working as a language teacher instructor; school teacher at various levels and locations (private school; government related language learning centre); TOPIK. I also offer English-Korean translation/interpretation service.

What I do best is that I can lead lessons to what you need whether it's a daily conversation or business Korean or TOPIK. I prefer conversational approach and use books, picture cards , vocabulary quizzes , TV news , and K-POP lyrics depending on your level and interests. If you have any questions, don't hesitate at all to contact me.
