Kristin did a terrific job helping to prepare my son for a proficiency exam. She was responsive, punctual, nice and organized. She was willing to receive scans over the internet and work on precisely the information my son needed. She didn't skimp on time and followed up each session with a helpful report. I recommend Kristin highly.

I have been working with Mr. Timothy for about two months and I've made a lot of progress. I have decided to take Japanese independently, in place of Spanish in school, and Mr. Timothy has agreed to be my teacher for the next two years to facilitate that.
The lessons are always really active - he brings in media, other sources, and offers relevant Japanese culture points that go along with the lesson I'm studying. The books he suggested are well written and organized, and he clearly has experience figuring out the proper pace for the course.
I am attempting to finish 3-4 academic years of Japanese in 2 years, and with Mr. Timothy's help, I definitely think this is possible. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is serious about learning Japanese.

After returning to the States in 2001 I taught Japanese for two years at a public elementary school in South Carolina and have been teaching Japanese for the past eleven years at a private high school in Westchester. As a non native teacher of the language and... ... More

I am fluent in multiple methods including: oil paint, acrylic, watercolor, charcoal, pen & ink, a... ... More
Being a good teacher entails more than just being a subject matter expert. One must be able to bring the topic to life for their students. A few years after completing my MBA, a former professor contacted me and asked me to teach a course. I was flattered and scared at the same time. Nonetheless, I decided to give it a try. It turned out to be one of the best experiences of my life. I have continued to teach and am currently an instructor at two colleges. In addition, I hold a full ... ... More
