As someone who needed to learn other languages, I can assist anyone whose native language is not English to become more proficient, improve their grammar, and gain better conversational skills.
One of my specialties is interview prep. I worked in IT, in marketing, and have an MBA, interviewed candidates and been interviewed myself - so I can share insights with my students.
However I also hold "regular conversation," while I listen attentively to my student, and correct grammar and style.

About Diane

Bonjour! Hello! Hallo! I teach several languages: French, German, and English for non-native English speakers. I tailor my lessons to each student's individual needs and I always go above and beyond the basic lesson, with follow up between lessons. I try to make learning a language fun and alive

My one-to-one lessons are customized to my student's needs and preferences. I will use your favorite movies, TV shows, books and music to create lesson that you find interesting and fun so you'll retain the lesson easily.
I also focus on conversation and I'll make sure we work on your accent and correct pronunciation!
I introduce grammar lessons at the end of each class so you have time to go over it yourself and have questions for next class when you also will have time to practice!

About Isa

As a teacher, I'm very proactive, which means I never settle with just a book! I enjoy creating exercises and strategies according to my students' needs and preferences.

Isabel is an innovative, patient and fun loving teacher who makes you forget about your fears and anxieties of learning something that is out of your comfort zone.
Try her and you won't regret the experience!
Amy
Isabel is a wonderful Spanish teacher! Her classes are well planned and she makes the lessons fun and enjoyable. She is warm and supportive and provides just the right amount of challenge. I highly recommend Isabel!
Tim
I’ve taken classes for years both online and in person, and Isa is the only Spanish teacher I’ve stayed with the whole time, which is a reflection of how highly I think of her as an instructor. As I’ve improved from a beginner to an advanced level, Isa has adjusted our classes to my level and pushed me to improve. She recognizes my weaker areas and always has a strategy to address them. Our classes consist of a balance of every day conversation or an article to read, followed by exercises to improve my fluency or increase my vocabulary. She is a native Spanish speaker, who is equally fluent in English, and is able to explain concepts in both languages. Regardless of your level, Isa will be a great instructor for you.

"When I came to the US my English language level was not great. I had studied in school in Turkey, but my pronunciation was difficult to understand and the grammar was impossible for me. I have been taking classes for about 1.5 years now with Micah and another instructor that works for her, and I have improved a lot. I have even been giving presentations at my job now. I am an engineer.

I was not expecting to improve my level like that in 1.5 years. Learn English or Spanish LLC has talented teachers. Now I am planning to take the TOEFL in 6 months, and I will prepare for it with them. After that, my goal is a Masters degree. I highly recommend classes with them.

They are extremely effective teachers."
