I have 10 years of experience tutoring english and math for standardized exams (SAT/ACT/GRE) test preparation, as well as helping new English speakers improve their skills.

I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My long-term pricing is negotiable if we work together for an extended time.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

I have over 15 years of experience teaching English as a foreign/second language in classrooms and as a private tutor.
I love to make my lessons fun and memorable using interesting materials, songs and games.
I make most of the material I use and I always put emphasis on oral communication which is the main reason why people study languages!
I can help you get ready for international exams (TOEFL, Cambridge English, IELTS, etc), get ready for college, and improve your chances of getting a job!

It was fun, and Ying was patient and willing to customize the lesson based on my experience with Mandarin and my interests.

Ting is very easy to work with. My reason for getting a tutor is primarily for verbal practice. However I’ve found Ying to be great at explaining the formatting of the Mandarin sentence structure.

I excel in language arts, including grammar, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and writing - including essay writing, poetry and song lyrics. I also teach diction (pronunciation) and reading aloud/oral expression.
I am fluent in Hebrew, and studied Spanish for 3 years in high school. My background in these foreign languages helps me understand how to teach English to non-English speakers, as well as to native English-speakers.
As a tutor, I am patient, intuitive, friendly, and positive. :-)
