About Clifford
'Dr. Cliff,' a part-time college/university professor, teacher and tutor with 5 master's and 3 doctoral degrees in a variety of topics: Mathematics, Computer Information Systems, Computer Science, Management Information Systems, MBA, Leadership, Education and Administration. He has always used proven educational techniques to instruct undergraduate students, graduate students and school children/teenagers (K-12). In addition, Dr. Cliff is a Certified Tutor by American Tutoring Association and National Tutoring Association (Math); he holds California Teaching Credentials in Math (CSET I,II,III), Business (I,II,III), and Educational Technology/Computers (I,II); he is a Sylvan Certified Teacher in Math and Arts/Language K-12.

Dr. Cliff believes that, although many professors and teachers do an admirable job in the classroom, many students
and children do not learn well in traditional institutions. Many students and children don't respond to the assembly line nature of most institutions. He believes that a student's or child's strengths and natural abilities need to be the foundation of learning. Dr. Cliff often warns against a "cookie cutter" approach to educating students, teenagers and children. You or your child is seen as an individual, and natural strengths are identified and built upon. Therefore, individual one-on-one tutoring or help is the key approach to each student who has any challenges difficulties in a given subject.

In today’s environment and economic challenges, with shorter budgets for the education, larger classes sizes and pressure of performing well in all kind of standard tests, I often see many students lacking true knowledge and skills in a given subject, since they cannot get individualized attention during the class session. That’s where a tutor comes into the picture, not only uncover major “holes” in students’ knowledge set but also teach students how to study, how to learn and through proper guidance “fill” those knowledge and skills holes.

Glenn is a wonderful instructor. His work with our 15 year old daughter, who's a 3rd year French student, has been extremely helpful as he provides a richer, more enjoyable learning experience. She has gained so much from his patience and dedication to the finer points of the language, which has made a notable difference in the classroom. Thanks so much!!

Teaching ESL for several years now I've learned (as a teacher) that learning another language should not be boring but it does take time and daily practice. So, I like to focus on the student's specific needs and interests not to everyone! {:

About Alexandra
Greetings!, Hello!, Hi!, Hey!

I've been teaching English and ESL since 2000 and taught all ages from kids to adults. Two incredible experiences were teaching in Eritrea, E. Africa and Guatemala, C. America. Not only do I enjoy making grammar and conversation accessible to all students, but my goal is to help students to become fluent and obtain the skills to have both professional and social conversations.

Most importantly, I love teaching and helping students get on their own path of "the love of learning"!

As an ESL student myself, I understand the struggles that English language can provide. That is why I try to help all of my ESL friends to improve their english, as I was once helped. I love languages because learning and mustering a new languages opens a new world of possibilities and broadens one's horizons.

About Artem
Hello! My name is Artem Kolesov and I'm 22 years old. I'm a second year Masters student at Roosevelt University majoring in Violin Performance.
I am passionate about teaching because I believe education and willingness to learn is an extremely important factor for personal development and success.
I was born and raised in Saint Petersburg, Russia and underwent intensive training in Voice, Violin and Piano. After winning the Frieburg Intenational Violin Competition in 2010, I was offered a full scholarship to study music at Dalhousie University at the age of sixteen. After moving to Canada I had to go through a 9-month intensive english learning program, so I know first hand how difficult it can be to learn a new language. This experience helped me understand the struggles that any ESL student goes through and discover new ways to teach
my first language to others.
I am excited to get to know you and share my knowledge with you!

Artem was incredibly helpful when I was taking my Russian classes. My parents never taught me and I finally decided to learn so I could converse with my grandparents.

Artem was amazing at showing me how to speak naturally and fluently without ever getting impatient with me. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn.

Growing up in a bilingual home got me interested in learning languages at an early age. In order of proficiency, I've studied: English, French, Russian, Japanese and Spanish.
Over the last 10 years, I've acquired working proficiency in French while living in Los Angeles. This was achieved through a deliberate style of immersion that involves: speaking in person and over the phone, listening, reading, singing, writing and activities with friends.
Most of my adult life has been spent doing conversation exchange with people around the world. ESL lessons are not only a passion but a way of connecting with people and learning about culture. I am a patient, courteous and competent teacher that will be focused on your needs and expectations on your journey to fluency. A natural part of my lessons will include culture, music, food, idiomatic expressions, jokes, phone etiquette, etc.
It is a wonderful experience to be able to speak English. I look forward to helping you live, work and prosper

About Jehanne
I am a native speaker of English who grew up in a bilingual, English and Spanish home. Most of my adult life has been dedicated to studying, speaking and experiencing language in its many forms.

My studies in college focused primarily on cinema, photography, English, French and Russian. It was here that I developed working proficiency in French while living and working full-time in Los Angeles. During this time, I have interviewed in the French language and maintain a resume, cover letter and social media accounts in French and English. My passion for English and French is so broad, that it often leads me to seek out books and other research materials involving linguistics, dialects and expressions.

That said, the heart of my lessons involve play, practical exercises, themes, repetition, pronunciation, and a bit of acting if students
are so inclined. Most importantly, I'm focused on giving people support in the areas that they need. For example: business or technical language, phone and workplace etiquette, grammar, conversation, etc.

I'm looking forward to meeting and helping you become a better English speaker!
