Lars is an awesome instructor. Very knowledgeable and also very articulate with his instructions. I highly recommend him. I am an absolute beginner and yet he was able to share so much in the very first lesson itself! He also makes learning fun.

I love helping people with their English language learning goals! I am a language and travel enthusiast with a variety of ESL teaching and tutoring experiences. Each lesson is custom designed to meet each student's unique goals and learning preferences. We'll draw from a variety of sources, such as song lyrics, articles, novels, ESL books, and my own materials. I meet students in coffee shops, parks, libraries, or other public places that work for both of us.

Please contact me with any questions and to get started. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you! :)

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.

Whether you are just starting your journey with the English language or feel like you are fairly fluent, I can help you master many of the concepts that make English so difficult for those who don't speak it natively. Having studied German, Koine Greek, and Ancient Hebrew, I can help you navigate my mother tongue by comparing it to your own language and understanding the differences. Those languages gave me a much firmer grasp on my own language.

"Hello,
When I moved from Russia to US in 2011, my English was at beginner’s level and I desperately needed to start speaking this language as soon as possible: especially for my job but also for my every day life.
I tried to take some ESL classes at local colleges and also study with a tutor but it did not work very well. Instead I became more afraid of making mistakes or saying something not correctly. I was frustrated and started to think that I am just not made for learning new languages.
I heard about Roman from my colleague who did intensive French language program designed and taught by mr. Nam. So he told me that Roman also teaches ESL. I decided to give it a try.
After three months of classes with Roman my English improved so much! From the beginning of classes I started to feel so motivated and everything was explained in really simple way. I don’t really understand how Roman was doing this but every class and even every homework was so interesting and so fun to do. I loved to hear myself speak English better and better. I started to use my english in any situation and I felt so confident.
Now, after four years living in US my English is much better but i know that the most important step in my progress was the program I did with Roman and I am very thankful for all his help."
