About David
My name is David and I'm a professional musician who just moved to North Austin. I came from Cincinnati, where I went to the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, taught dozens of students at all levels and played regular gigs every weekend. I have been teaching for over fifteen years, and I'm looking to get a few new students.
I teach guitar, piano, bass guitar and even upright bass. If it's a tutor you are looking for I can also teach music theory and appreciation. I have a knack for teaching young people, probably because I was young when I started my musical journey. I've been very successful at inspiring a student's love of music and instilling the patience required to take on the challenge of playing an instrument.
The first thing I like to do is get to know you, the music you enjoy and your goals. In a way, I l
ike to begin by letting the student lead.
In addition to learning from you, I intend to present you with new information, to try and broaden your musical tastes and teach you how to be an active listener.

About aaron
In the past 10 years, I have lived and worked in the Arab world, was formally educated in Arabic, and taught the Arabic language to an array of students.

I hold a dual degree with honors from The University of Texas at Austin in Psychology and Middle Eastern Languages and Cultures. I studied directly under Mahmoud al-Batal, the esteemed professor and writer of the Al-Kitaab textbook series, Mahmoud al Batal and bec. (Yup, probably that textbook you're using right now.)

With training in both cognition/development and Arabic, I have taught all kinds of people over the past 5 years. My students range from college students to professional educators, humanitarian workers to businessman and politicians, emergency room surgeons to US Army Personnel, and regular people who are just interested in learning the language.

I specialize in o
ne-on-one teaching and make custom lessons for your learning style- Arabic is an awesome language and I will help you learn it well.

Aaron is the third Arabic teacher I've worked and is definitely the best in all respects.

He is very organized and efficient and pleasant to learn from. I've developed much better and structured habits in how I approach my grammar and understanding of Arabic- he made it feel so easy. He challenges me just enough so that I can learn where I need to grow.

Great at teaching at any level.

Highly recommended!

Aaron breaks down his lessons by category which is extremely helpful. Smart and professional man who knows his craft. He can explain the same concept/idea in 10 different ways and won't just 'bypass' anything you aren't completely clear on. Cool guy, patient, worth all my time and money.

Aaron’s a really cool guy and a great teacher. I took lessons with him 3x a week and my Arabic improved so quickly. I scored high on my tests and got to exactly where I wanted to be. He is straightforward and to the point but not at all uptight. Definitely highly recommend.

About Genevieve
Being a licensed teacher in the State of Texas in both English/Language Arts, Reading, and ESL, I feel incredibly comfortable working with students of any age and skill level. I'm fully versed in state standards and expectations for students and I'm capable of helping you develop your skills!

Here's a bit about my teaching experience:
After graduating from Washington State University with a BA in English. I moved to Gyula, Hungary, where I taught ESL to 10-19 year olds at a local middle/high school. After two wonderful years there, I moved to Budapest, Hungary to teach American Culture/ESL at a prestigious technological high school, while I simultaneously earned my MA in International Relations and European Studies from Central European University. From there, I spent the next 4 years traveling the world teaching English to students o
f all ages. I particularly enjoyed working with kindergarteners in South Korea and Hospitality College students in Mexico.

About Soo
Learning a language should be fun and enjoyable. I use methods that employees all senses which help you to learn more and to remember longer. I was born in Korea and learned English as living in the US. I'm currently learning Mandarin Chinese as well, so I can relate to those who are learning a new language. My previous work experience includes translation and interpretation at a Korean manufacturing company. Each lesson is customized based on your need; business English, conversational/free-talking, improving pronunciation or preparing interviews. I can help students of all ages, from children to adults for all levels of both English and Korean. Please feel free to let me know what your focus is or what you would like to improve. If you don't see an opening for a lesson, feel free to contact me and we can discuss.
I don't claim to know e
verything - language learning is a life-long process. But I can certainly help you to build the ​love of learning a new language!

안녕하세요.
저는 한국에서 태어나 미국에 수십년 살면서 영어를 배우게 되었습니다. 지난 몇년간은 통역, 번역에 종사한 경험도 있으며, 현재 중국어도 공부하고 있습니다. 새로운 언어를 배운다는게 어떤건지 직접 경험해 보았기 때문에 영어를 공부하시는 분들과 충분히 공감할 수 있습니다. 저는 영어를 완전히 정복했다고 느끼지는 않아요. 하지만 제가 직접 사용하는 실용적인 방법들, 그리고 다국어를 공부한 사랍들에게 배운 방법들을 공유하면서 같이 공부해 보시도록 격려 드립니다. 매 강의는 배우시는 분의 필요에 따라 맞춤형으로 진행됩니다.
언어는 평생 공부해야 비로소 터득한다고 하지만, 다른사람과 의미있는 대화를 하거나 정확한 정보를 공유할 수 있는 수준은 얼마든지 갖출 수 있습니다. 올바른 의도를 가지고 계시다면, 그리고 조금의 노력과 꾸준함을 투자하신다면 영어는 즐기면서 배울 수 있습니다.

About Lydie
My name is Lydie. I am an enthusiastic and devoted French teacher with excellent communication skills demonstrated by 20 years of teaching experience.

I have been very successful at teaching hundreds of students of various ages and levels of proficiency. Currently, I am giving private and online lessons to 18 students on weekly basis. Many of my students have been with me for about a year or longer. They are extremely satisfied because they are learning fast while having fun at the same time, and they are getting top-notch tutoring for a very reasonable fee.

I can help you with all aspects of French including grammar, conversation, vocabulary and overall fluency. I will work with you to evaluate your needs. I will adapt my methods to suit your learning style.

I am using the Communicative language teaching method. My stu
dents learn and practice French through the interaction with one another and with me. My goal is to enable my students to communicate effectively and appropriately in the various situations they would likely find themselves in. My students learn basic skills such as describing, enquiring, informing, explaining, inviting, suggesting, complaining and notions such as the expression of time, quantity, and location.

I was born and raised in Normandie, a north western region of France. I graduated from University de Caen Normandie in Adult Vocational Training. I spent 14 years teaching French to foreign students, and 6 years as an educator at the French school for children with disabilities and violent disorders. Currently, I am working as a teacher at a French immersion school in Austin, Texas.

I love my French culture, arts and literature. I enjoy reading classical novels especially by Zola, Balzac and Maupassant. I am passionate about sharing the very best of my culture with other people. That is why I am such a passionate French language teacher. My work and life experiences have thought me not only to be an effective teacher, but also to be compassionate and caring individual who can see potentials in every one of my students.

Your success is my success.

About Jaime
Hello! I am an avid musician around town, a graduate from UT Austin with a B.S. in Mathematcs, and I just finished my first year of service with Americorps teaching literacy! I’m extremely passionate about helping others learn and express themselves. Guitar is a cornerstone of my life and being able to share my 14 years of knowledge with others, guide them, and help them learn to play their favorite music on stage or write their own songs is amazing. From studios downtown, to the stage during SXSW, I offer experience based teaching on everything guitar and music. I have always loved math since I was young and was very excited to study it in college. I understand that this can be a frustrating subject, and I aim to get my students to a high level of preparedness and comfortability that will transfer over into their performance in the class
room and tests. I aim for the same high level of performance in math in reading as well. I have always loved reading but I never knew how to teach this important skill. During my service term with Americorps, I gained the knowledge and skills to teach early literacy and get students reading at grade level or help them get a head start in their elementary school.

About Tracy
Spanish is not my native language, so I can relate to the mixed bag of emotions that come with learning a new language: self-consciousness, excitement, awkwardness (because of those pesky false cognates!) Along the way, I picked up some great strategies for understanding Spanish that I'd enjoy sharing with you.

I have a Bachelors and Masters degree both in Spanish. I studied abroad in Mexico, Spain, and Morocco. This past year, I took continued education coursework in Spanish translation. Just recently, I attended a workshop on language teaching through storytelling, also known as TPRS. It's a useful and unique exercise beneficial to language-learners of all levels.

I look forward to helping you feel more confident for class, pass your Spanish test, or even help you learn the language for work. I tutor full-time, so I am dedicated to cr
eating a personalized lesson plan centered around your needs and interests. ¡Gracias y hasta luego!
