Farangis have been teaching my teenagers Farsi for the last 9 months, within the first three weeks, they were able to make conversations and we were all excited, she always brings entertainments and different activities to the classroom and it made my teens more interested and engaged. They can now read and write low intermediate and speak high intermediate, communicating with their grandparents and watch Iranian movies with them. She is a great teacher :)

Farangis have been teaching me Persian for the last two years. She makes learning fun, and her energy and enthusiasm encourage me to attend her classes. Farangis always tries something new to engage and teach me Persian and I appreciate her method and her efforts.

After I graduated college, I went to take TESOL(Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) certificate. Since then, I have spent several years teaching English, Korean and Japanese and being a supervisor to several other teachers.

I also enjoy doing yoga, cooking, traveling, staying active, hiking, and also enjoy trying new things.

I like to help people learn languages faster in a fun way. So I use many different materials to boost learning faster. With my my extensive knowledge of the Korean and Japanese language, and Korean and Japanese culture I will be able to teach you an

Fantastic instructor! Had some technical problems going into the lesson which kinda deterred. But Ms. Young-Ju made the lesson very interesting. I am a complete beginner but she was always patient with me and we had many good laughs. Looking forward to plenty more!

My lessons with Ms. Young-Ju are/were amazing! She actually takes the time to teach and make sure you understand what the lesson is about and what is going on. There is also a good flow of communication, no stiffness or awkwardness. And most importantly, the lesson actually feels like a lesson and not as though I'm simply being read a dictionary or reading a book.

A great instructor and I highly recommend her.

About Maxmillion
I am very proud to have been born and raised on the lovely island of Guam! I have been playing guitar, bass, and drums since I was 15, and have had a passion for music since I can remember. In 2007, I earned my associates degree in music from Musicians Institute Hollywood. I have had my music placed in popular television shows, such as “The Real World” and “Road Rules," as well as the film “The Tested.”

I previously played guitar in a project called Xolie Morra and the Strange Kind. We were featured as the musical guest on the popular late night talk show, "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" in January 2014. We were also featured on the local television programs "Art Zone with Nancy Guppy" and "New Day Northwest." We are also featured on YouTube as sponsored artists on EMGtv and Blue Microphones. I also have had the opportunity to share the stage with
Crosby Stills and Nash, John Mayer, Don Felder, Brandi Carlile, Russell Ferrante, Travis Carlton, and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band.

Guitar is my main focus, but I am also comfortable teaching bass and ukulele. I love all styles, and specialize in rock, blues, funk, pop, reggae, metal, and acid jazz. I have experience teaching students of all ages (as young as 4 years old) and am currently an active teacher. I am also fluent in Japanese.

Max is very knowledgable about music and it's theories. However, he also understands where his students are and what they need. He made lessons in guitar applicable at my level. He is very patient and works well with kids. You can tell he genuinely cares for people and wants them to improve!

Max is a great bass guitar teacher. You can tell that he has a deep fundamental understanding of music and he presents lessons very clearly and at a manageable pace. My bass playing, music theory, and music appreciation have improved dramatically under his instruction.

The fact that I am a native speaker of Chinese means that I know my subject extremely well, but I also speak English very well which will facilitate my communication with students. I graduated from University of California, Santa Barbara with a degree in Global and international studies. I would love to tutor my native language because I really enjoy interatcting with students and finding new, creative way to teach based on student's needs.

This vibrant young lady was just simply a blessing: knowledgeable, dynamic and simply a pleasure to be around and in-take information from. My child was simply taken by her and was, as it seemed and looked to me, craving every following visit from her. She was able to commence, see through and complete the entire task I set in front of her-for my child to be ready for the next stage in her education. My son is going to be in need of similar educational assistance soon-I have already discussed his lessons with Polina and will definitely call upon her once the concrete dates arise!
I strongly recommend this highly gifted, professional and serious individual to anyone looking for a tutor, in more subjects then one, that can captivate and deliver results, not just talk!

As modern-day English speakers, most of us are accustomed to using only one word for “you.” It doesn't matter if we are talking to one person, many people, old people, young people, teachers, doctors, children, or anyone else. In some languages, this is not always the case – and French is one of them. French grammar provides French-speakers with two ways to say “you”: “tu” (pronounce it almost like the English
