I'm a responsible person always ready to help and my teaching style is students’ needs oriented, cooperative, and activity-approached. My motto is Practice makes perfect.

I would highly, highly recommend lessons with Aliaksandra! She really cares about her students' learning, tailors the lessons to individual learning needs, has a lot of interesting and helpful materials, and is incredibly knowledgeable about Russian and languages in general. Moreover, I was really nervous about speaking Russian again in 12 years and she made me feel incredibly comfortable doing so.

Excellent instructor. Outstanding preparation. Developed a plan for the lesson and executed it very well with attention to my level of the language. Also, set goals and a general outline for the next lesson. Very friendly and supportive throughout the lesson.

About Naomi
I was originally born in Cincinnati, Ohio in a large family (youngest of nine kids), and we all attended Catholic schools... this is where I started learning Spanish. I have studied it (and English Literature) for many years, then eventually won a scholarship to study/travel in Mexico for six months. I returned from Mexico fluent, graduated from college with honors in language and Humanities, then decided to go live in Washington, DC to use that language. I got into corporate training, working 10 years at Fannie Mae as I traveled to 38 of the 50 states to help them train banks on their financial systems. I later began working in healthcare, and got certified as an interpreter AND as an Instructional Designer. I have designed educational programs ever since at hospitals, schools, educational centers, retail organizations, and with hig

If you are looking for a Spanish teacher look no further! Naomi is a very skilled and phenomenal teacher. I have taken her class for the last 10 months and I truly can see the progress I have made with her teaching style. She not only has set lessons from the book, but she will bring real-world examples such as food, newspapers, and music! I recently traveled to the Dominican Republic and I was amazed at how easily I was able to hold a conversation. The people there let me know that my Spanish was very good. It was definitely a compliment for me. I believe that a student is only as good as their teacher. Naomi is the right teacher!

Naomi really takes the time to go over with you the culture and language of the people. She setup a lesson plan for me and established goals. I love her teaching style and I feel like I'm taking the time to learn again. If you're looking for a teacher who knows her stuff she is it!

About Sina
Learning a new language is to create a pathway to one's unacquainted cultures, to which the learner ought to be eager; and this is the only prerequisite for such purpose. Talent, attention and dedication, all, come afterwards.
An eager learner, never feels incompetent or alone; with a dedicated teacher who can make him/her relaxed, fully attentive and innovative.
We, all, have unique ways of expressing ourselves, by using the same pool of words; which is what makes the concept of language a distinctive invention.
This has been the essence of teaching Farsi for me. To make each learner use Farsi as a unique effective tool of self-expression.
I started teaching Farsi literature to my juniors when I was 10 and ever since that has been one of my pleasures, which I kept doing during all past years. Having more than 10000 verses in different
styles of Farsi classic poetry, editing books, articles, writing for amateur and professional newspapers, I have had learners of expanded range of age, education, and knowledge of Farsi, from illiterates to university students; all of whom eventually performed greatly.
The key was, to make them self-sufficient and independent by encouraging them find out, how they interpret the concept of language, and from then on, they had the joy of learning what they wanted to learn, facing challenges they loved to face, and the self-satisfaction anyone needs.
30 years of continuous learning, teaching and evaluating my students on different subjects, had shown me that whatever a human creates, can be taught, and whatever can be taught, can be learned.
In my teaching method, depending on the learner's age, goal, education, status of Farsi understanding and dedicated free time to study, different schedules will be set; and different tasks will be executed. The environment in which the learner will be trained surrounds his/her goals, and the expectations never surpass the abilities. It will be exclusively topic-related, which means learner will not be dealing with tasks outside of their functionality; so that anything taught, could be easily memorized.
The first session includes a free 15 minutes acquaintance, during which areas of interest in my teaching and learner's goals will be assessed to be sufficient, and then educational process proceeds.
At last, regardless of your choice of educator, learning Farsi is a great way of spending your time and effort to gain some valuable practical knowledge which makes you proud of knowing it.

All lessons will be creative and effective. We will set goals in the beginning, check our progress throughout the middle, and see how we both measured up in the end.

Spanish is an amazing language that will surprise yo

Letícia is the best teacher I found in the area by far.
I improved my Spanish skills a lot in a short period of time.

During my last business travel to Spain, I was able to negotiate and have conversations with locals, they understood everything that I was saying. That's something I couldn't do last year.

Totally recommended!
