Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

Anyone looking to learn a new language would be well served by taking a lesson with Victoria. She goes out of her way to make the environment comfortable while also being extremely professional and good-humored. Not only that, after three lessons I am seeing a lot of measurable progress in my understanding of Russian language and culture. Again, I can’t recommend Victoria enough!

I've been teaching ESL for 3 years now and my students have gone on to love English and have improved reading, writing, listening and speaking skills, especially the difficulties in English pronunciation. I speak American English. Within the first few lessons you will learn new sentences and start learning how to have a conversation with native English speakers! Then you will go on to work on grammar, reading, writing, and listening skills. We will also focus on pronunciation and common words and phrases including slang. Soon you will be speaking like a native! I typically use Practice Makes Perfect book series which are very reasonably priced and easy to find on Amazon or book stores. I also use multimedia such as podcasts, music, news broadcasts, stories, poems, newspapers, worksheets, games, and activities. I love working with everyone from 5 years on up to older adults. I will find out exactly what you want to learn and why you want to learn English and then tailor lessons ...

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.

"I've chosen Staphanie as my teacher, because I needed someone who will really quickly help me make my English accent better. I took the fact that she is also a musician as a big advantage as I assumed she'll be able to hear all the false accentuation I make. In fact, if you want to work on your English skills, it's the best combination of skills.
It was really clever decision. Stephanie is able to explain things clearly and fast. Step by step, syllable by syllable, trains student how to speak properly. If you're ready to do your homework and want to see progress fast, Stephanie is perfect person to work with. And she is very kind, too!"
