I've taught ESL to many students, varying from people who could barely say "hello" to those who were just trying to get the past perfect continuous tense right. I love it.

I can help you with conversation skills, correct pronunciation and proper grammar. I have plenty of materials that we can use for the lessons!

I try my best to keep the classes as relaxed as possible so that you can feel comfortable speaking and can learn at your own pace.

Mikuさん is awesome!! Extremely patient and helpful without holding my hand. I’m able to understand sentences better with less than a year of lessons. She’s very professional and prompt. The lessons are always interesting and I actually feel like I’m improving every time (even if it’s just a little at a time). I’m really looking forward to being more conversational in Japanese!!
Cathy
I highly recommend Miku and have recommended her to several friends because lessons with her are extremely fun, engaging, and thorough. I look forward to every single one, and have already learned so much in what seems like a short time--the time flies! She is also incredibly accommodating and makes rescheduling very easy and hassle free. I very much appreciate the time she shares with me as a student in helping me learn the way I do!
Adrienne
Miku is a great teacher to work with! I've been doing weekly lessons with Miku remotely since December of 2019 (now July 2020 as I'm writing this) starting from no experience.  I was worried about my ability to learn a new language since my only experience prior to this was learning Spanish in school years ago, but learning to read and speak Japanese with Miku's guidance has been the right level of challenging and fun.  Miku is a great communicator, flexible, really knowledgeable, adds nuance to the lessons we move through, and also really just fun to talk to and learn from.

Georgina is a wonderful teacher. I've struggled trying to find the right program to learn spanish, but with Georgina I've found the perfect guide. Each lesson has been well crafted to fit my own needs. Highly recommended.

Mike P.
I am a 62 year old person who had previously studied Spanish using Rosetta Stone and Duolingo. I started taking lessons with Georgina several years ago to provide a regular opportunity to engage in Spanish conversation. Our lessons have been free-flowing and she introduced me to a number of books written in Spanish which were not only helpful in further developing my knowledge of Spanish but were culturally enlightening as well. Georgina is easy to engage, a delightful person to know and an excellent instructor.

"Tell them and they will forget , show them and they may remember, involve them and they will understand." This is the philosophy by which I plan my English language classes. I incorporate real life reading material, listening material and functional speaking role plays into my lessons.

Before starting lessons with me, I will call to discuss your specific English learning goals. Do you want to focus on Speaking Accent, Conversation, Listening, Writing, Reading, etc. I will then tailor each lesson just for you.

I also teach Business English to students and business professionals. I teach children as well.

The Complete List of English Idioms, Proverbs, & Expressions

Although English idioms don't make sense at first, these unique expressions (together with proverbs) add substance and humor to our conversations. The Oxford Dictionary defines the word "idiom" as a: "group of words established by usage as having a meaning not deducible from those of the individual words (e.g. over the moon, see the light)." This means that English idioms should not be taken literally, because their meaning is metaphorical. You don't really wish someone would “break a …
