Samina est superb. I am a beginner-intermediate. After just a few lessons, my vocabulary, pronunciation, and comprehension have improved greatly. Samina is especially skilled at teaching and reinforcing using a french accent!
After studying French through Arlington County Adult Education for two sessions over the past few months, my understanding of grammar was fairly good but my pronunciation and ability to speak were horrible, so I decided to pursue a tutor. After an initial session where she evaluated my learning goals and needs, Zahra developed a plan to improve my French speaking in time for a trip this coming summer. Zahra introduced me to important pronunciation rules that were not covered by the class I attended, and she immediately began helping me learn some basic and intermediate conversation phrases and topics that I will be able to use on my trip. Her approach is very practical and tailored to my specific needs. I plan to continue learning from Zahra after my trip to improve even more. Zahra is an excellent teacher whom I would recommend to anyone wanting to learn French at any level. She provides great handouts to make learning fun and easy, and she gives just the right amount and right type of homework to reinforce the concepts from the tutoring sessions. Zahra is the best!
Roberto is knowledgeable and patient and adapts teaching to my wishes. I get to learn the most beautiful language, as well as learning about Italian culture, society and history. It's so great! Can't wait for next opportunity to visit Italy and interact with the locals (and have proper Italian food)
Tara is very thoughtful and dedicated to her students. She adapted all lessons to my necessities and to my level and we continue adapting the course along the way. She delivered me creative and funny classes, that helped me stay focus during a two hour lesson. With her help, I got accepted in a high ranked university.
Attending the professors class was a wonderful experience as she is passionate about what she teaches in her sign language classes. I think the lessons were easy to follow and she encourages her students and definitely wants her students to learn. She is a patient and understanding individual and devotes her time and attention to her profession. Anyone whether seasoned or novice will benefit from her expertise. I thoroughly enjoyed having her as a teacher and can't wait to take more classes from her. She meets you where you are and encourages/helps all who come in contact with her. She is definitely a wonderful teacher and encourager. All will benefit from her.

I engaged Ms. Hoyle as an editor for my manuscript and was delighted with her sensitivity to the nuances of th English language. I have known her as a teacher of disadvantaged youth in the DC Public School system. She was well respected by her students for her substantive lesson plans and her committed desire to meet the needs of each student. I highly recommend Ms. Hoyle as a skilled and dedicated teacher, and as one who is gifted in the use of language.
Ms. Erin is a great Reading and Math Tutor!
Patricia Nieto makes the lessons entertaining. As an intermediate student I have learned a lot and can recommend Patricia highly.
Patricia, has been tutoring me for the past month. I am a true beginner!!! This is my first time every studying spanish or trying to learn a new language. Patricia and I meet at a local coffee shop once a week. Patricia is very punctual, always prepared and super patient. She is very thorough and has a very calm delivery in respect to the lesson. Her cool and calm demeanor helps prevent me from getting frustrated during my tutoring sessions. She also gives timely positive reinforcement which i find is key in a classroom type of environment. She will utilize different teaching approaches when necessary to help me grasp the information. I really enjoy my sessions with Partricia and I look forward to continuing them. I highly recommend Patricia. To all you new spanish speakers I say "Buena Suerte!!"
Eve-Marie offers a sincere approach to teaching French, which is conducive to learning any language regardless of your skill level and the extent to which you wish to learn the language. Honest, blunt, tough, and caring. If you are looking for a professional French tutor who is an actual native speaker, Eve-Marie is an excellent choice.
Since March 2018 I have been taking one-on-one weekly lessons with Shaoling Liu. During that time, I have gained much more confidence in my ability to pronounce tones, which is critical to being understood. She also places a premium on listening to conversations at the speed of “regular Chinese-language speakers” speaking. She is very enthusiastic about teaching Chinese, and is always willing to do more for the students who take the initiative. For example, if you want to write materials, she will correct them; if you record your own speaking she will listen to it; and in these cases she will give you feedback between classes. She has grown up using simplified Chinese, but she knows the traditional characters, which is essential for what I want to learn. One of her previous students is now working in Taiwan. I recommend her to individuals interested in learning to speak and understand Chinese.
One of the most important rules to consider when learning a new Language is to study it with a person who fluently speaks it.

Thimothy has the teaching experience and is willing to help any student be successful.
I have been working with Alex for two weeks now and she has been very good at customizing lessons to help me get better at Spanish. After those two weeks I already feel like I got much better at the language.
