I have zero music background. After a lesson with Dan, the amount of knowledge that I learned from him makes a huge different of what I can do after just 1 lesson. I can’t wait for more lessons. Dan is also very friendly and knowledgeable. He’s very easy to talk to. His studio has good parking.

Great class , really appreciated her patience and understanding and willingness to teach me, having never had to learn a foreign language before I’m sure I pose a challenge but she was very encouraging which made me relax and get more comfortable. Looking forward to my next lesson!!

About Erika
Hola amigos!

My name is Erika and I would love to teach you Spanish! I am the daughter of a German- American father and Panamanian mother. I am 100% bilingual in both English and Spanish. I grew up mostly in Latin America living in Costa Rica, Chile, Panama amongst visiting countries such as Peru, Dominican Republic, Argentina, Nicaragua, and Spain. If you want help on your Spanish homework, need someone to quiz you, converse with you etc. or need assistance in reading, writing and speaking the language I'm here to help! I make learning fun and more than anything I teach it in an applicable way so that you can use it as an every day language and not as just a way to pass a class. I have a Bachelors of Arts in Theatre Arts from Loyola Marymount University so if you want to include Spanish Soap Operas into the mix we can definitely do
that! Cheers to learning a new language!

M. Marie Roche conducted on the campus of U Mass eight seminars--open to all--on two of Shakespeare's history plays, King John and Richard II. Neither play is popular with modern Shakespeare-going audiences. But she accomplished the nearly impossible--making both plays compelling and relevant by her selection of background documents and themes. I hope that TakeLessons can provide an adequate platform for her level of sophistication.

About Anna
Hello. I am a Chinese woman fluent in Mandarin Chinese, Japanese and English. I am looking for students to study Mandarin and/or Japanese and for ESL for Japanese and Chinese language speakers.

I grew up in China and lived and went to university in Japan. Coming from the north of China, I speak very fluent and standard Mandarin Chinese. I have great confidence in my standard (dialect free) Chinese and Japanese pronunciation. Having lived in Japan for more than five years, I am very fluent in Japanese.

I feel confident that with learning two foreign languages (That would be English and Japanese for me) I have acquired the language skills that have allowed me to understand how best to study and teach a foreign language. At present, besides teaching my 3 children Mandarin Chinese, I also have students whom I serve as their tutor for in
both Chinese and Japanese.

About Yuko
I was born and graduated college in Japan. After I worked there several years, I decided to come to the US to study more.

As a piano teacher, I specialize for beginners. When you start playing, everybody realizes that your fingers don’t move as fast as you want to which is very normal. We are going to work on slowly in a fun way. I have taught from 3 years to 70 years old. Everyone can enjoy the piano anytime!!!

As a Japanese teacher, I will explain Japanese with cultural backgrounds so you can understand better. I can do both teaching and tutoring. Your goal is my goal. I would love to tailor the lessons whatever you are looking for.

Super happy I found Yuko. Love how attentive and patient she is. My 12 year old learned a lot in the first session. She made the lesson fun and was very encouraging. Definitely recommend her to anyone wanting to learn Japanese.
