Alec is always exceptionally prepared with a fun lesson that makes learning joyful and interesting. He pushes you to think critically and see how the pieces fit together as part of a bigger picture. Working with Alec inspired me to really work towards mastery of the Spanish language because I realized the whole cultural world and wisdom I could access. Thanks Alec!
Luanna is an excellent teacher who quickly understands the need sof the student, adapts the lesson plan to what she sees is needed and brings a lot of creativity and flexibility to making it happen. Into third month of Portuguese classes now and learning faster than I expected.
She used to be my ESL teacher for 5 years. She is a wonderful, dedicated teacher.I really had hard time to speak English when I first came to the US from Japan. She helped & encouraged me a lot. She gave me all kinds of English lessons e.g. basic pronunciation, reading & writing daily sentences to formal letters. I think I improved so much by her lessons. I am now successfully working as a researcher at Stanford. I am thankful to her for being my teacher.
The people I have been teaching always fell in love with me and we had a hard time saying goodbye when the school year was over. Making my students happy at the same time that they learn is my goal. If you learn something in a enjoyable way, you will always want more.

Most teachers, like me, are professional musicians who supplement their income by giving lessons. However: I genuinely love teaching and would happily do it even if I didn't need the money. My students can see the passion and excitement I have for my work, and that does wonders in their ability to learn and develop. It is one thing to play an instrument well, but it is another thing entirely to know how to teach it well.
