Private English Teacher

As someone who needed to learn other languages, I can assist anyone whose native language is not English to become more proficient, or gain better conversational skills. My specialty is interview prep. I worked in IT, in marketing, have an MBA, interviewed candidates and been interviewed myself - so I can share insights with my students.

About Diane

Bonjour! Hello! Hallo! I tailor my lessons to each student's individual needs and I am always ready to go above and beyond the basic lesson. I try to make learning a language fun and alive, through news, stories, and songs. My method is to provide basics for beginners, and then mix grammar,

Diane has a great French accent and shares her teaching skills effectively. I would highly recommend her for all levels. We have read books and seen movies in French. Her world view and experience adds a lot. Vraiment!
Pierce
Diane is a great German teacher! She always provides additional resources to delve into the subtleties of a translation or specific grammatical constructions and uses a variety of different books/activities so that the exercises never get boring.
Don H.
Once again, Diane has proven an exceptionally effective French instructor. She is conversant in American idioms and offers the French equivalents with ease. I am in awe of her ability to motivate and instruct.

What I Learned From Peter.

- THE METRONOME IS SO IMPORTANT
- The voice guides the guitar if you’re more of a singer
- Repetition is key
- Practice songs that aren’t in your style to ease your way into guitar
- The power resides in strumming rhythmically
- Focus is more difficult that it seems when combining singing and guitar
- Guitar is an art in itself and itself you shouldn’t master guitar, you should be it’s friend.
- Open mics and video content are the key to more success as they expose you to criticism (good or bad)
Again, the guitar is your companion.

For any aspiring musician or any musician that needs guidance and improvement on the guitar, Peter is a great teacher.
Dhiraj
Peter is very patient and great teaching my 9yr old son. We take father and son lessons together which has been amazing. Peter is naturally talented and plays many other instruments all in from his home studio. He is also extremely flexible and accommodating. Highly recommended!

Peter was great, very kind and supportive. I will definitely consider another lesson with him.

I understand the difficulties of learning English, especially when coming from a completely different language such as Mandarin Chinese or Cantonese. As I learn more about the Chinese language, I've learned how to break the communication and cultural barriers.

I'd love to help improve English speaking, writing, communication, and overall understanding of the English language, specifically tailored for native Chinese speakers.

McKenna has a great style where she continually challenges me to push my thinking but also keeps the lesson fun and shares the way she would think about a given situation. This was my third or fourth lesson with her, she clearly comes in with a game plan to make me incrementally better each week, and always concludes the lesson with some things for me to think about for next time or when I'm playing with my friends. She clearly has a brillant chess mind but more importantly for me is a great teacher.
Stefan S.
McKenna was patient with my 6-year-old.

С Мариной я занимаюсь больше года. За это время я многому научилась.

Занимаемся по сериалу Друзья. В течении недели смотрю по одной, две серии, потом перессказываю о чем там, потом готовлю пересказ на бумаге. На занятии мы с Мариной активно обсуждаем мой пересказ и мои ошибки, ещё успеваем обсудить повседневную лексику. На уроке узнаю много тонкостей в переводе английских слов. Слова не зубрю, но словарный запас пополняется с каждой неделей. Марина большое вам спасибо за уроки, мне очень нравиться учить английский именно с Вами. Вы несомненно талантливый учитель, ваш подход в обучении мне нравится.👍🤗
Irina
Спасибо, Мариночка, за интересный подход к обучению, когда уроки английского превращаются в увлекательную игру, а ученики становятся дружной весёлой командой! Ты-лучший преподаватель английского из всех, что знаю🌸🌸🌸! Когда отшлифуем этот язык , пойдём с тобой к следующему , ведь так ?

Translated Using Google Translate:

Thank you, Marinochka, for an interesting approach to learning, when English lessons turn into an exciting game, and students become a friendly, fun team! You are the best English teacher I know🌸🌸🌸! When we polish this language, let's go with you to the next, right? 😉
Olga
Марина, Вы прекрасный учитель! С вами очень приятно работать! Потому что Вы очень хороший человек , и я многому с вами учусь, особенно по урокам в Скайпе! 😃
