Private English Teacher

I've been teaching English for five years, in various settings such as private one-on-one tutoring, college level ESL classroom, and casually tutoring conversational English. My students have gone on to study bachelors and graduate degrees in American universities, as well as successfully begin working in English speaking environments. Within the first few lessons, we will assess your academic level and create goals based on your needs and desired use of the language. Even as a beginner, at the start of lessons we will begin producing simple expressions and sentences necessary to introduce yourself and ask fundamental questions. As time goes on, you will be able to communicate in simple present and simple past with ease.

Are you looking for a way to improve your English? Would you like the chance to improve your reading or writing skills, grammar, conversation and listening skills, increase your vocabulary or work on any problem you may have with the English language. If you are a native or a non-native speaker and want to improve any of the skills involved in the English language at any level and at any age, I would like to help you do just that.

Teaching English/ESL is my passion. When I am teaching, I become energized and totally involved in the moment. It's a great feeling, and I use this energy to make my teaching the best it can be for the student--exciting, interesting, informative, active, and never boring.

I remember when I was in graduate school working toward my MA degree in English, and I had a very boring professor for one of my classes. He sat in front of the class and talked non-stop for three hours. He was incredibly

Linda became a volunteer tutor with our organization in the fall of 2019. She had two students, a mother and adult daughter, and they were very happy with her. And then Covid hit. They were not computer savvy, so the match was put on hold and has not resumed. I am the trainer for the volunteer tutors and was very impressed with Linda during our two-day training, so much so that I have asked her to shadow me this year and eventually take over the volunteer tutor training for our organization. I highly recommend Linda both as an ESL and an English teacher.

Our 28 year old autistic son came skipping down the stairs with a joy and enthusiasm we haven't seen in a very long time. He told me all about the lesson, then he told me all about Stephanie G. The instruction went so well online he created an earring. Amazing, considering his learning disabilities which include fine motor skill issues.
The statment , " She liked me too. She liked my ideas and said I was doing a good job," will stay in my heart forever.
HIs joy and confidence are absolutlely priceless.
Thank you, Stephanie G. for being an incredibly motivating skilled teacher.

As a doctoral candidate in the sciences, it is important for me to assert my knowledge of a topic while capturing the attention of the reader. Jesse has taught me to transform bare facts and ideas into structured, sophisticated passages. He has played an active role in building my self-confidence and has helped me find an authentic writing voice to more clearly and elegantly express my thoughts. I am grateful to have his guidance and am eager to vouch for his excellence as a tutor."

"From the beginning, Micah proved to be exceptional! She was the only teacher who took the time to answer my long list of questions. She was clear and honest. Classes are planned according to your specific needs. She makes you want to learn more, motivates you and guides you in the best possible way. She also has a lot of patience and knows how to explain the lessons properly. Her teaching techniques have been very useful to improve my English pronunciation and I enjoy doing homework (cause it's fun and doesn't seem like homework at all). I highly highly recommend her!

English Language Conversations for Beginners

Although words may be limited and simple, it is still possible to enjoy conversations in English even if you are a beginner. I think that it’s essential to be able to express basic needs and to clearly express your identity. Let’s get started with the very basics and then we’ll build from there. Greetings and Introductions: When meeting new people you need to be able to greet them. If you are in an informal situation you might say, “Hey, I’m (name), nice to meet you.” In order …
