I received a TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) in 1986 through UC Berkeley Extension and taught at Galileo High School in San Francisco. I also tutored intermediate students from 1986-1988 and taught in Mexico for several months in 2005. In 2011, I came to the International Refugee Committee and for 3 years taught ESL to level 1 students, many from African, Middle Eastern, and other countries who spoke no English at all when they enrolled. I teach students of any age.

About Judy

I have taught many different kinds of subjects, eg., piano, ESL, Drug and Alcohol Education, and foster care parenting, in the past. Mostly, though, I have taught piano and ESL, my first and greatest loves, starting in the 70's and 80's. I develop special relationships with all of my students,

Great first lesson, really excited to continue learning from Judy!

Judy had my son up and playing in no time. She was great about setting a pace that will keep him challenged and confident simultaneously. He loves his lessons and looks forward to learning more. My youngest, after observing a class, has decided he would like to play too!

Hello,

With over 8 years experience in tutoring, I have learned what methods work and those that don’t. I’m upbeat, patient, easy going, empathetic, and generally well-liked by others. I’m very good at adapting to different learning styles and have a knack for eliciting the best out of my students through motivation and positive reinforcement.

Throughout university, and after, I mentored many students with great results. In addition to academics I helped them get the most out of their college experience. Everyone I helped benefited greatly, and one runs a very successful consulting business.

Aside from math and English, I’m a very proficient test and note taker. I speak conversational Spanish, and basic Japanese.

I can help with grammar, syntax, pronunciation, and essay writing skills. I have helped 1st through university students with essays and have won thousands of dollars in essay contests.

About Mitch

Whether you're completely lost, just need a little help, or need some test/note taking tips I can be very helpful. My patient, easy going, and positive mindset is very conducive to creating a great learning atmosphere. I can also be very useful to those that aren't motivated, I have a knack for fin

I am a professionally certified ESL instructor with extensive experience working with both adults and children. I have an extensive knowledge of grammar and tools for language learning. Many of my students want to work on pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar; you can come to me with any concern you may have!
Together, we can also improve your conversational or writing skills. In my opinion, practicing casual conversation in a way that incorporates learned grammar and vocabulary is the best way to improve in a language! I am also a very experienced tutor for academic writing and I particularly love helping students improve this skill. I can also help you study for an exam, like the IELTS.
I am also very experienced with working with children online, and am comfortable with children ages 6 and up.
I hope to meet with you!

Russian is my native language, therefore the study will be much more productive. All my methods are personalised according to the needs of my students. I try to give a lot of examples related to their work, daily routine and interests, that in the end gives knowledge not only about the language and can be actually useful in real life.

I understand how difficult it can be to learn a new language, especially when you have other subjects to worry about. My personal learning experience helped me understand what is important in developing an easy tutoring program and successfully implementing it. My tutoring experience began in 2008. I believe my qualification and many years of Spanish tutoring with students of all ages and levels have rounded my experience as a private tutor.

"I found that J.Q. was a quality tutor. He adapted to what I needed to focus on for Mandarin, which was tones, and as such I was able to improve my foundation. He also has a good knowledge of the language apart from just being fluent, and could answer any question I had. I definitely recommend him."

After taking lessons with Carolina for a few months I feel more confident conversing in Spanish and that I am well on my way to fluency. She is really sweet, but also good about making sure I do my homework, practice my verbs and keep up with my speaking. I highly recommend her as a teacher!"

"Lynn is affordable, informative, patient, skilled, but most of all, supportive! She pushes you to try hard and is excellent at assessing a student’s weaknesses, strengths, and their goals. A more underrated quality that she has that a lot of instructors who are excellent at their skills seem to lack is kindness - she is very friendly but is able to maintain the balance between friendliness and being a formal instructor. I feel more comfortable with my mandarin already, even though I have leagues to go! 谢谢老师!"
