As I needed to learn other languages, I can assist anyone whose native language is not English to become more proficient, improve their grammar, and gain better conversational skills. Thanks to my knowledge of other languages (and cultures), I am uniquely positioned to understand some of the English language's challenges.
One of my specialties is interview prep. I worked in IT, in marketing, and have an MBA, interviewed candidates and been interviewed myself - so I can share insights with my students. I also help edit resumes, and ask relevant questions about your professional journey...
I also hold "regular conversation," while I listen attentively to my student, and correct grammar and style.

About Diane

Bonjour! Hello! Hallo! I teach several languages: French, German, and English for non-native English speakers. I tailor my lessons to each student's individual needs and I always go above and beyond the basic lesson, with follow up between lessons. I try to make learning a language fun and alive

I have been a student with Diane for the last few years and she is the best French teacher I have ever had. Not only is she an amazing teacher but she is also genuinely fun to be with. This year, Diane helped me pass the French B2 Certification exam - she provided me with all the resources I could have ever hoped for, and I really couldn't have done it without her! I highly recommend her for anyone

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.

Zelda is very encouraging instructor. I could see lot of improvement in myself. Thanks to her, I have not only improve my accent, but also helped me to gain confidence to go out and speak with Native speaker .
Randy D.
My sessions have been nothing but fun! I started playing the ukulele to relieve stress and classes with Zelda has made that possible. Going over chords, correct finger positioning, tempo, and playing popular songs has been exciting and I don't feel pressured. Each lesson is created to match my pace and gradually becomes more difficult as I improve. But, her instruction allows me to pick up the new skills with ease. Since taking classes, I feel I finally have a outlet to relieve stress from work/family through the rhythmic sounds of my ukulele. I would highly recommend this instructor for novice or veteran music lovers.
Kenneth C.
As a beginner, Zelda makes lessons fun. She has a great singing voice as well. But she really helps to breakdown the components to make playing the Uke. From rhythm to strumming to chords, she helps make it easy and a real joy.

Because it was online I thought it would not be as good as in person. But, I was blown away by how engaging a teacher Mr. Mendez is! My child was very excited and motivated to keep playing and practicing.

Love this teacher
Raymond O.
Although Luis is a good teacher, he has difficulty keeping appointments. His home life interferes with his lessons. Every lesson we had needed rescheduled. Finally we agreed on Fridays and then he rescheduled that one. He doesn't give 24 hr notices as required. So great teacher, but no business organization.
Tim G.
I really appreciate Luis for the practice he's given me. We worked on lyric analyzation and flow. We focused on speeding up the meter to work harder in performing faster. I have become better with expressing my vocals in a volume where I can sing a long with the music bed. I highly recommend Luis for anyone who is working on improving their vocal training.

I have close to 10 years of experience tutoring english and math for standardized exams (SAT/ACT/GRE) test preparation, as well as helping new English speakers improve their skills.

I recommend just starting with a single lesson to see if we are good fits for each other, and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals!

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

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 …
