Private ESL Teacher

I received a TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) in 1986 through UC Berkeley Extension and taught at Galileo High School in San Francisco. I also tutored intermediate students from 1986-1988 and taught in Mexico for several months in 2005. In 2011, I came to the International Refugee Committee and for 3 years taught ESL to level 1 students, many from African, Middle Eastern, and other countries who spoke no English at all when they enrolled. I teach students of any age.

Great first lesson, really excited to continue learning from Judy!

Judy had my son up and playing in no time. She was great about setting a pace that will keep him challenged and confident simultaneously. He loves his lessons and looks forward to learning more. My youngest, after observing a class, has decided he would like to play too!

Over time with taking ESL lessons, you should be able to see improvement. ESL lessons with me will be fun but also will build on what you know, therefore it will be challenging as well! My goal in teaching ESL is improvement. I will always be aware of the place my student is at and not push them beyond their abilities. Improvement is the goal, but that takes time. Patience and fun will always be present in my ESL lessons!

I’m 100% positive that I know exactly what it takes to become a fluent and confident English speaker. I know tons of tricks and methods to an easier, fun and brain-friendly learning journey. I love working with students to improve conversational skills, build confidence and encourage them to improve, not only their English but improve as human beings.
I became an English Coach after I noticed that people were having classes for six months (or more) and still were not able to have a simple conversation. So the only option was to believe that the method people were learning from was not efficient enough. I’ve noticed that people were having English classes but were not really using the language and sometimes, not even having enough contact with it to improve.

How I work

I’ve never been a huge fan of traditional methods, which is usually what we see out there. This idea of learning a language through grammar, and thinking that you will reach fluency like that never made much ...

Ty is awesome. Only had 2 lessons with him so far and I’m making a lot of improvements already!
Lana V.
I can't even believe when I see how far I've gotten. I remember my first session when I was shy because I had a thick Russian accent and the first thing I complained with Ty was that the first everyone asked when they talked to me was "Where are you from?" But I trusted him and I did all the crazy exercises and everything he asked me. Well, it worked! And all I can say is that I couldn't be happier with my result!
Arne
When Ty told me I didn’t need to learn grammar to become fluent I laughed out loud, literally. But he showed me a whole new world where English is actually fun and easy! I became fluent in no time! Ty is incredible!! Thank you buddy!!

My lessons are customized to address the specific needs and goals of the student. My first lesson starts with an combined informal ( introduction and conversation) and more formal assessment (pronunciation, grammar, writing, etc.). I also use methods to meet the specific learning style of the student and rely on a variety of sources. For example, I often start with a pronunciation drill focused on a specific area and/or address a particular grammar area before having the student give a talk, engage in a role play, or work on piece of writing. Moreover, I work with students on specific communication goals (conversational English; formal presentations; chairing meetings; resumes and cover letters; interviews; reports and all other types of writing-- including essays, research papers, and legal writing; and test preparation, such as TOEFL and IELTS.

Marcelle is an expert at English language. I have been taking English writing lessons from her. She is a very good English expert, very focused and has been very sharp in identifying my weak points. She gave me a different strategy on how to overcome my weakness, and I am surprised with the result. I would recommend anyone who wants to improve their English. She is also a very good human being.
Hamda
I like the way how she organized the classes. Marcelle knows which part of my English language needs to improve. She is very flexible in the timing of the classes. I strongly recommended her for whoever wants to improve and refresh their English language. Honestly, she's the best.

It is my grasp of foreign languages that makes me an effective English teacher. For instance, learning the complex grammar of Latin and Greek gave me a thorough understanding of English grammar and the ability to relate to other people’s native languages. I have spent many hours proofreading papers for international students. They find my instruction especially informative because I not only fix mistakes but provide an explanation. When I point out the patterns of grammar, similar mistakes show up less and less, and my students feel more confident that they are writing sentences correctly.

I learned English teaching methods through my tutoring experience. Over a span of four months, I gave a Turkish visiting scholar a systematic overview of English grammar and allowed him to apply it through conversation.
