I've taught ESL to many students, varying from people who could barely say "hello" to those who were just trying to get the past perfect continuous tense right. I love it.

I taught ESL for six years as a volunteer in a classroom setting. During those years, I was assigned beginner, intermediate, and advanced courses. I loved the enthusiasm ESL students brought to the class and their desire to learn English. I use a variety of textbooks and worksheets to enhance vocabulary, grammar, reading, and writing skills. Aside from reviewing written exercises with students, I focus heavily on pronunciation during tutoring sessions.

Dan is an exceptional tutor. He tutored my son in 10th grade American Literature English. Dan actually went out and bought the books my son was assigned and read along with him to prepare for their lessons. He also edited all my son's essays, taught him some writing tricks, and dramatically improved his writing. I can't recommend enough.
Leona
Daniel is a fantastic teacher. He is patient, explains the information really well, and makes sure to tailor each lesson to my strengths and weaknesses. He is also really good at explaining complex concepts in super easy-to-understand terms. If you are looking for an amazing tutor who will help you understand and learn quickly, while boosting confidence, then Daniel’s the best tutor out there.
Kim
Dan is an exceptional tutor. My daughter is studying to become a teacher, and she struggled with the math section of the Praxis exam, which tests an overview of high school math. Dan worked extraordinarily hard, tutoring her twice per week. He rented practice books from the library, developed his own materials, and broke everything down for my daughter in simple terms so that she could understand. He was very patient and he worked through every problem she encountered. I can't thank him enough. Because of Dan, my daughter passed the exam, and she is on her way to becoming a teacher.

Private ESL Teacher

Hello, welcome to my studio ! I myself am not a native speaker as I arrived in the US to live permanently when I was 7 years old. However, through my acclimation and diligent studies, I'm glad that I'm now fluent and proficient enough to believe that I can teach ESL in the beginning and intermediate levels. I have 2 summers of teaching experience teaching ESL overseas to Chinese students as well as teaching Citizenship class to immigrants. Learning English is not just about learning the words, but practicing listening and speaking in conversation. I excelled in spelling in elementary school and vocabulary in middle and high school (memorizing word-for-word on the definitions), helping me to excel in my grades and exams during those years. Hopefully, you can get some helpful learning tricks from me!

Please note: I have had a successful background check recently in Canada. If you would like to take lessons but would like to verify or get an update of my background check status

Hello!
Hola!
Привет!

My name is Katya. I've been teaching Spanish, English and Russian (as a Foreign Language) to adults and children for many years. I am a native Russian speaker, a classical pianist, singer and professional educator. I received my degree in piano performance and pedagogy in 1992, and have been teaching since then. I have lived (and taught) all over the world, and I love what I do.
I speak and write fluently in English and Spanish, but as a native Russian speaker, I had to learn English, Spanish (Portuguese, French, Italian and Mandarin) languages from the ground up, just like my students, so I understand very well the challenges of learning a language. I have structured a specific approach that incorporates tricks and shortcuts. Little things you can do to bring the language into your everyday life... these little things that accumulate and make the whole experience of learning a language much easier and more natural. I consider myself a language ...

About Katya

Hello future students :-) I was born and raised in Soviet Union, where I studied piano since I was 5 years old. I love teaching, and have extensive experience teaching not only music, but a variety of other subjects -- I successfully homeschooled my own 3 children for many years, one of them bei

Veronica
Katya has been giving online lessons to my two children, ages 14 and 12, for the past 6 months. Before this, the children received in person lessons from Katya for 3 years. Katya is an excellent pianist and piano tutor. She is patient and kind. She always looks for ways to motivate the different skill levels. She is very talented and sparks in children the love for learning and becoming avid at playing piano. Katya also gave piano lessons to other children from the same school my children attended and they all loved the piano lessons with Katya. I highly recommend Katya as a knowledgeable and loving piano instructor.
