Laurel is one of the most professional, and open, friendly approaches to online education for language instruction. She is personable, and treats everyone with dignity and respect; including children. Laurel effectively uses online tools, for social media integration for education. I have learned a great deal working with her on radio-based education development.
Working with Ms. Stark was absolutely incredible. Her language lessons were the highlight of my summer and she was supportive, kind, and dedicated throughout every lesson I had with her. Her passion for languages and teaching is truly contagious. Ms. Stark is a wonderful friend, teacher, and mentor to me, and I can't recommend her enough.
We met at a cafe. I got there about 10 minutes earlier than our arranged time, but he was already there, preparing for my lessons. He is committed to teaching English. He is very passionate and always makes sure if the student really understands what he says. He loves to answer any questions about English.
Maida is teaching me Spanish, and I am very satisfied with her methods. She has recommended a book that I use and she leads me through the lessons and adds to them with explanations of daily usage and pronunciation. It is just a little difficult to understand her English sometimes because of her accent, though.
Frank has been an exceptional tutor for my daughter in 8th grade. This year has been particularly difficult for her and I've recently learned , the majority of the class due to a less than stellar teacher unfortunately and Frank is keeping her on track and ready to move to 9th grade math. For students that struggle witht he subject, he is patient and explains things in their "language" making it easier to learn. I will continue to partner with Frank for my daughter's math education into the summer and I am sure she will meet the 9th grade curriculum with the foundation and confidence required to excel. Thanks Frank!
I’ve been receiving lessons from Luke for 6 months now (and still going!), and would highly recommend him. He’s professional, experienced, and flexible in his teaching style. Although our lessons have been conversationally structured (per my request), I’ve also enjoyed his strong command of Spanish grammar, and have found it really useful in learning Spanish as a beginner.
Excellent service. Morgan tutored my 9 year old in Spanish. She has great enthusiasm for teaching and is very patient with kids. I can say she is very dependable and trustworthy. I saw a lot of improvement after only a few lessons. Highly recommend her. Great price for such a great teacher!
Philip puts students at ease. His French is wonderful (great accent) and he teaches with competence and humor- a rare combination. He challenges you as a student and is flexible with his hours. He meets the student at the right level. A very good teacher, a very good experience.
Andy is an excellent instructor who never fails to make Spanish class interesting and fun! He always seems to have an ideal recipe for keeping the class interesting and mixing in just the right amount of grammar, conversation, culture, politics, current events, and history; to top it off, he peppers his classes with comical references, cultural jokes, crossword puzzles, video clips, and the like. His breadth of knowledge in a plethora of subjects is truly impressive: one day we'll be talking about Bolivia, and the next about the latest developments in cancer research. Never a dull moment in Andy's class! I couldn't recommend Andy more wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a Spanish instructor! The bonus is that he also speaks French and Portuguese, so you can practice multiple languages at once!
Ms.Jami started tutoring my children (ages 3 and 4) in Spanish a little less than a year ago. During that time my son's natural interest for reading increased but decreased when working with mommy. Ms. Jami did some preliminary testing to see if he was truly ready and soon she began tutoring him in reading also. Initially, I was concerned that he would not be able to tolerate 30 mins of Spanish then 30 mins reading. However, he is able to maintain in seat behavior with a short break between subjects and the 60 min sessions go by quickly. There is an award system in place to manage behavior and fun interactive hands on activities (singing, music, tactile and visual stimuli) which sustains their attention. As an educator it evident that tasks are age appropriate and consistently tweaked to meet the needs of my children. My children are day and night in terms of personalities and learning styles. I am alway's amazed how Ms. Jami manages both of them in the same session. A sign of a great teacher and a gentle spirit. Ms. Jami presents with weekly lesson plans, carry over activities, affordable rates and she genuinely likes children. I highly recommended her, she is one of my best finds on Craigslist to date! The children love and respect her!
I contacted Ryan to help my teenage son whose grades were slipping in French. After just the first session, my son was animated and talkative and excited that he now actually understood a key piece he "didn't get" before then. Ryan is patient and knowledgeable. My son's understanding of the language is improving.
Krithika is an excellent tutor. She knows all the conventions, rules, expectations, and online resources for topics of high school writing such as critical thinking, literary analysis, research papers, SAT prompts, and college admissions. Like her profile says, she brings passion to the subject. Her energy and enthusiasm are contagious, so not only has my sons writing improved, but so has his interest in the subject. Shes an excellent communicator who can connect with the student as well as mediate with the parent. I am sure her advice and guidance are going benefit my son for the rest of his life.
If you need help with a Spanish class (beginning Spanish to advanced Spanish), I can help out! I graduated at UNC Chapel Hill with a bachelor's degree in Hispanic literature and cultures. I've tutored two students so far, and they've both received A's in their Spanish class!
We are passionate about teaching grammar, conversation, and culture. We offer French and Spanish services. Our specialization in colloquialism, slang, and cultural etiquette is what sets me (and us) apart. However, I am also able to focus on grammar and conversation for students looking to improve their grades.

I'm a retired Spanish instructor. I have my MAT in Spanish from Chapel Hill in 1985. I have 30 years of experience and several publications.
My goal is to help you find a good way to learn a language through games and appropriate conversation, but not boring, just fun.
During a trip to Disney World as a teenager, I was mesmerized by all of the foreign languages that I heard and strove to master one. My mother purchased me a Spanish program, and off I went. Since then, I have gone on to master four other romance languages, and I love helping others to discover the joys of different languages and cultures. I also love to play guitar. I have been playing since 1991 and have found it to be a gift that never stops giving. I feel that one is never truly alone if he or she is capable of playing an instrument. My love of Spanish and guitar has led me to a very enjoyable career. I taught Spanish for 13 years at a preparatory academy, and I also have taught beginning guitar lessons for seven years at the academy. On the side, I am delighted to give private lessons for both the guitar and Spanish language. (LinkedIn site and resume will be gladly provided upon request.)
I've been emerged in what I do, and work on it every day. I have performed with several chamber choirs, and state choirs, and have a lot of experience with learning, and performing, and just the art of it in general.
