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.

Become a more natural and fluent speaker and writer in English! I've helped many students, and I can help you, too. Book a lesson today, and I'll show you how!

If you're like a lot of my students, you want to improve your English because you:

- have a job interview in English
- you want to apply for a promotion at work
- you have to take an IELTS exam
- you want to attend university or grad school in an English-speaking country, but your English isn't good enough yet because...

you're still translating in your head.

or it takes you a long time to think of what you want to say, and you still make a lot of errors when you speak.

or you use the same simple vocabulary words over and over in your speaking and writing.

or you've taken the IELTS exam a few times already, and haven't gotten a score you want.

I completely understand how frustrating that can be! So, what's the solution? Customized lessons with a dedicated teacher who uses authentic, interesting ...

About Marta

Hi! I'm a language nerd, writer, reader, and traveler. I discovered my love for teaching at university when I was leading writing workshops and helping students with their essays and papers. I thought, "I love this! But I can't teach!" That was before I knew I could teach ESL and work with ad

Good teacher, good topics, and fun good classes.
Mariel
Marta was extremely helpful in improving my writing skills! I am in the process of applying for grad school, which requires a self-reflective and well thought out personal statement. Marta made sure I answered the prompt completely, helped make my paper more specific and meaningful, and corrected grammar and sentence structure to make it more readable. Her guidance made me more confident in my writing and expressing my thoughts. She is an excellent teacher!
Jin-Bo
Marta is an amazing teacher. She is patient that she would always listen very carefully to what I was going to say. One of our common interests is watching movies and series, so we spent a lot of time discussing them and exchanging our favorite shows. The classes with Marta were always helpful and relaxing. I really enjoyed the lessons and learned so much from her!

Whether you are just starting your journey with the English language or feel like you are fairly fluent, I can help you master many of the concepts that make English so difficult for those who don't speak it natively. Having studied German, Koine Greek, and Ancient Hebrew, I can help you navigate my mother tongue by comparing it to your own language and understanding the differences. Those languages gave me a much firmer grasp on my own language.

"Marie to me is by far the best teacher on earth, better yet the best person I have ever met in my life. She was also my teacher in high school and I couldn't ask for a better human being to teach me about life, school and caring for others. she was always there for me even when I didn't want her to be. I guess you can say she was a second mother. She is kind, caring, understanding, and very passionate to teach her students. I promise you, having Marie as your teacher she will show you love, patience, and make sure if you have to, stay after school to learn and understand whatever subject that you are having problems with. I wouldn't say this if I didn't mean it, having Marie as your kids teacher will be the best thing for them. just make sure they don't get too close because she is that easily lovable and a great teacher."
