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,

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.

"Oh geez! I've completely forgotten to write this for months now!

I've had Miss Sonia as a mandarin teacher since last August. She's incredibly patient and will do a lot of work on her own end to find useful materials for her pupils to help them grasp certain concepts.

I have a tendency to overload myself with work, school, and life duties, leaving not much time to study as I would like, and she's been very patient in that regard. Often incorporating "review" days that do, in fact, review key concepts, but always branch out into other concepts, leading to increased comprehension through repetition as well as further learning.

As we all know, actually learning a language requires a LOT of work and effort to step out of comfort zones, and my big problem is simply learning time management. Once I get that down, I'm positive I could advance quickly with her tutelage.

I would highly recommend her for anyone looking to understand the language and culture surrounding it. :D"

She helped me improve my Spanish a lot. She is a very responsible teacher who can keep you motivated and engaged. She offers lots of learning materials so that you are able to practice different skills. I am so glad that I found her. She makes learning Spanish easy! Anastasia"

You would almost forget that you are learning something at the same time. I’ve followed courses with other teachers but really no one is like her. She has all skills to teach, the sometime difficult Spanish langue, to people at all levels. Even after a long day of work I would look forward to follow her class. Thanks Ana, you’ve been great!"
