Nuria Fortier was my Spanish teacher for fall 2014 through the International Language School for Children and Adults. I am an adult, beginner level spanish language student with some previous beginner coursework. Our Saturday morning one-hour classes are held at Pitzer College and ran from September through December into January. I am very impressed with Nuria's language instruction. She meets the students where he/she is in their learning, yet also helps you to challenge yourself (for example speaking as much as possible in Spanish during lesson). She stresses the importance of grammar and verb conjugation structures within conversational Spanish lesson. She constructs lessons so that we come into contact with verbs and then we address the conjugation. She recommended two very good books for beginner level that we use during the lesson, and also introduces fun story reading (at children's level which is actually very good for beginner adult learner). Nuria is very professional and reliable, and encouraging for an adult language learner! Nothing negative to report. Nuria has also created a local Spanish speaking group of current and former students who meet to practice Spanish and I am looking forward to joining this group. Thank you Nuria! I recommend ILSCA and Nuria Fortier for Spanish language. Her Children's programs are also very well attended.
Sheehan is teaching my six year old mandarin and her lessons are professional interesting and she keeps him engaged
She listens while teaching to make a learning plan . May, is the only Mandarin Teacher that has ever done that with me. I highly recommend May to anyone who wants to learn Chinese.
Grace has been tutoring me in Mandarin for the past 2 weeks. She is very skilled and can easily deal with the subtleties of both Chinese and English. I've been seeing her 2-3 times a week. She is very patient and I really enjoy learning with her!
Eliza, is an amazing teacher, she taught me very good things, thanks to her mandarin speaking people don't have trouble understanding me when I talk, thanks to her lessons to have good accent and gramar :)
Kelly is an amazing Chinese teacher. She has been teaching me for several years now and has helped me enormously. Kelly is always patient and understanding when I struggle to remember a word or phrase. I like the way that she will teach you the basics so you feel you are making progress and then return to your pronunciation or phrasing over time to gradually improve the way you say things. Kelly also helps you remember words by making connections with ones you already learned. She builds up a self-reinforcing web of concepts and meanings that make it much easier to learn than if you were just trying to study on your own. She is also very flexible if you just want to learn to speak as many previous teachers I tried insisted that I also learn the writing which is not useful to me and wastes a lot of time and energy. On my last trip to China I really noticed how much I have improved and I would definitely give Kelly most of the credit for that.
Ren is super energetic and positive with the kids, even smaller kids

As a music teacher I have employed a successful teaching method that mixes legendary classical, pop and jazz compositions with present day, contemporary songs that the students know and enjoy. They may also be taught music composition, theory, pitch, rhythm. As a musician composer, and audio engineer , I am able to teach students in various music styles, performance, composition, music production and guide them to reach their goal.
I grew up part of my life in Los Angeles, California, and the other part in Merida Yucatan in Mexico. I have taught Spanish both to retirees living in Mexico from United States and Europe and in the United States. This is a side job I do about 8 to 10 hours per week. I am completely fluent in both English and Spanish. I am self-taught in Spanish, and although I am fluent now, when I was young, I had to figure the language out for myself. This gives me an edge that native Spanish speakers don't have. I have always gotten a lot of good feedback from everyone I have tutored in Spanish, and I hope to work with you in the near future!

As a native Mandarin speaker that have lived in the US for over a decade, I can guide you in getting started in Mandarin or to help you improve without boring you with text book style lectures.
