Online English Teacher

I've communicated in English my whole life, sometimes in Spanish, but I've only been an experienced teacher for 3 yrs, specializing in the beginner/ intermediate English student. I've even educated my stepmom, siblings, and friends who had difficulty just speaking English. There are 3 procedures I use to teach anyone. (I) I find out the student's weakest areas and make sure they master it before moving on. (2) I customize the lessons based on the student's needs/goals. (3) I check off stuff they excel in and rehearse lessons they have trouble in; remember, no one has ever become a master at anything without repetition. That being said I believe speaking and writing in English should be an easy and fun experience and one that will positively change your life forever. I teach all aspects of English and specialize in pronunciation, reading, and spelling. I want to help my students reach their full potential and aspirations while having a wonderful time. If you got any questions feel free

Learning ESL in DC

Considering that roughly a billion individuals speak English worldwide, it's easy to see how valuable learning the language can be. Even in countries that don't consider English their official language, there's often a large segment of the population that speaks it.

Understanding English can open up a wide variety of opportunities around the world for you, since the language is used for commerce on a global scale. But you'll need more than books to grasp this complex language. A private English teacher in Washington DC will be indispensable.

Why You Should Take ESL Classes in Washington DC

English classes in DC are commonly taken by students of all ages. The nation's capital is one of the most intriguing places to study the language. The US has about 300 million native English speakers, and that's more than any other country across the globe. This means you'll be learning English in the center of the American English capital of the world!

Each day, you'll come face-to-face with historical and cultural landmarks. From the Smithsonian Institute to the Lincoln Memorial, a rich history where the English language played a key role will be all around you.

Although the US values languages from around the world, taking English classes in Washington DC will provide plenty of new opportunities for you. You'll find increasing options for employment available right where you live.

You may also want to visit your local library. The prestigious Library of Congress or the Mount Pleasant Neighborhood Library have virtually limitless English resources. Perhaps you want some English books you can keep for years to come.

In that case, considering checking out Kramerbooks and Afterwords Cafe. You can think about what books to purchase while sipping on your favorite cafe drink. You can also do plenty of reading without having to make purchases.
