Introduction: You recently moved to the U.S. but you're not a native English speaker, and you're having a little difficulty understanding or making yourself understood at work You recently moved to the U.S., you're not a native English speaker, and you do speak English, but you still feel a bit out of the loop in meetings and social gatherings You have a French, Italian or Spanish-speaking boyfriend or girlfriend or wife or partner You're thinking of traveling to a French, Italian or Spanish-speaking country You're thinking of working remotely from a French, Italian or Spanish-speaking country You have friends or family in French, Italian or Spanish-speaking country and are thinking of going to visit them You're planning to visit French, Italian or Spanish-speaking country and would like to learn enough of the language to get by Whether any of the above applies to you, or you're perfecting your English or learning Italian, French or Spanish, a second language is an invaluable skill to have -- one that not only stands out on your resume but also once that can open many doors and possibilities for cultural, personal and professional enrichment. We can help you acquire this valuable skill. We are linguists, not "language tutors" or "language teachers." We bring a whole new level of expertise to language learning. While learning a new language is a life-long process and being highly motivated is a necessary requirement to learn well, becoming conversational within a short period of time is a fairly attainable goal. We can expedite that goal. Learning a language is like learning how to play a new musical instrument. That new musical instrument is your voice. Words are your musical notes. Chords are your grammar. Writing is your new musical notation. You can learn to play "by ear 👂," if you'd like. But you can never fully get away with not knowing any of the chords. You can learn to whistle but sooner or later you will have to sing and play. You will have to practice. You will have to rehearse. You will have to perform. All you need is a little shift, a little tweak of the way you think about languages and how they work. And a very good coach. That's us. 👍 You don't believe it? Try us for free.

Spanish Lessons

My spanish is improving a lot from lessons with Nando. He's kind, knowledgeable and flexible. I look forward to continuing French lessons with him as well!

French Lessons

I never realized that learning language could be so fun until I started working with Nando. He comes prepared for every lesson but is also flexible and can change the course of the lesson to ensure engagement remains high. I used to use Rosetta Stone for learning French until I discovered Nando. I did one lesson and was hooked and now work with him multiple times a week. I also decided to pay him extra versus his rates due to the value I'm getting. He comes to my house and also my workplace which makes the whole process convenient and focused on my needs.

Spanish Lessons

Nando is very passionate about teaching, and he's so genuine about wanting you to get better. His content is very original and he tailors every lesson to your own level to help bridge any knowledge gap. His lessons are also really value for money among all the classes out there. Highly recommend!

Italian Lessons

I plan on booking future lessons with Nando. He responded to my inquiry very quickly. He was flexible on time and place for our initial lesson. He had a great structure for the lesson that made me excited to learn more from him.

Spanish Lessons

Fantastic first Spanish lesson where we went over his approach to learning a new language and did a few sample activities and exercises. The best part? The first lesson is free to get a sense for whether or not he is a good fit for you. I'll definitely be doing more lessons over the next few weeks!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I offer two options: 1. I give you a nice discount ($50 off) for signing up for a package of ten (10) one-hour lessons (materials included) for $300 and paying in advance. 2. Individual pay-as-you-go one-hour lessons for $35 each.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We meet and do a sample trial lesson. Usually, I can tell right away where exactly the person is in the process and what he/she needs to work on. I then apply a lot of techniques I know to help them learn what they need to know.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I studied German in Berlin and saw, experienced how the Germans teach German.I studied French in Paris and saw, experienced how the French teach French. I studied Hebrew in Israel and saw, experienced how the Israelis teach Hebrew. I studied linguistics in college.
