Private English Teacher

I learned English as my second language when I was invited to study Music Performance at Dalhousie University on a full scholarship. As an ESL student I believe that I understand the intricacies of this language much better than a native speaker, since I had to learn it from scratch at University level. Through both of my degrees I have been writing academic papers and one of my essays was published by a Harvard professor. I am an avid lover of literature and a real grammar-nazi with good intensions of course!

Looking for students who want to become confident with the English Language and all it offers. I teach writing and basic skills, but most importantly, I teach you to fall in love with reading and all that literature offers.

I can help you get better grades, become a better reader or writer and in the process become a more literate member of society and I think, a happier person.

Melina, 7th grade English Teacher
I worked with Anna for 4 years in a middle school, and we were both in the English department. Anna is caring and patient the students which makes them comfortable in her class. As an instructor, Anna is very passionate about literature and has a way of making the classics interesting to students. This is a huge achievement especially in the public school we taught at in Hollywood where most kids have no interest in reading and have parents whose education level is below a high school diploma. In Anna's class, they read Shakespeare, Austen, and Steinbeck, and they liked the books! Anna is also a fantastic teacher of writing being a writer herself. She believes in the writing process, and taught students how to write essays that are both precise yet to the point. In her class, students learned how to revise their writing without feeling like time is wasted. Anna was an effective teacher, and students will grow under her tutelage.

Anna received the "Best English Teacher" award when she taught high school for LAUSD. Not only was she deserving of this award, but Anna is truly an expertise in her field. She has always maintained a professional rapport with her students and is able to develop lessons for all her individual student's needs.

Mr. G goes over and above to help me pursue my interests. He helped me sing through a difficult time while my voice was changing. He supports me at performances and never fails to make me laugh. Working with him has been a fantastic experience and I feel that I have grown so much.

I got in touch with Daniel so I could get back in singing shape as an adult who had lapsed - a lot! He's friendly, kind, and patient, with a clear way of explaining technique that's really helped me get it. I've improved noticeably in a short amount of time!
