There is more time available than what is shown on my calendar. Please email me to discuss your preferred time.
I love literature, and I love explaining language and novels. You will truly enjoy your class with me, because I love this subject.
I have been a full time private English instructor since 2008, and I've had my global language training company (over 100 instructors) since 2014. I take on private students here, exclusively with take lessons, because it's important to always be teaching and creating more modern curriculum for real progress in fluency. I know what it takes to get fluent, because I've acquired Spanish, French and Japanese as an adult. I know you can improve and reach your goals just as I have.
I always call clients before the first class to extensively discuss your goals. I have a specific form we full out together for every 3 months of progress. I have researched this, and it's the most effective way to improve.
I work primarily with professionals who need to improve American English language skills and/ or accent for those working in the United
States or working with Americans. Also, I can get English speakers to a high level of fluency in Spanish.
This includes, slang, idioms, phrasal verbs, professional email writing, presentations, American culture, accent/pronunciation and more.
I have created a method, which is a specific way to learn languages, which is the most effective for acquiring a language.
I always use RELEVANT articles to read, TV shows to watch, books to read, radio shows to listen to, in order to incorporate English as much as possible in every aspect of the student's life.
This is how we learn our first language, so why would we try to learn our second language in a different way? Second language researchers have been saying for decades that grammar- focused lessons don't work, yet our schools continue to focus on this. You want to be FLUENT, right? Writing is easy after that.
I have had contracts with Hitachi, NTT Data, Intel, Amazon, Google, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Samsung, Ferrovial, Webber, Bluebonnet, Austin Bridges and Roads, North Tarrant Infrastructure, Trinity, Mary Kay International, and many, many more international companies.
How I teach: I create customized classes for you. I teach you to SPEAK the language. Lessons are dynamic, fun and give you confidence, incorporating things you like: TV, radio, music, movies, current events, and much more.
One-on-one, small groups, company-wide programs, online, in person.
I strive to provide the best, most interactive online English classes for every student. We will discuss your needs and obtainable goals so that I can personalize your course material in order to reach them.
Some of the ways I integrate technology to make online lessons more effective are:
-Using collaborative slides to be able to work on the materials in real time. -Online tools and resources in order to make the classes more interactive. -Alternative assessment using a variety of content creation in English (see below).
Project-based learning and assessment is authentic language use in speaking, listening, reading and writing activities. Students are assigned creative projects based on real-life use of the language. The content is used to create an ebook, website, training or other presentation. Their project is used for studying, reviewing and as a measure of progress and assessment over time.
Students can choose to participate in this ...
I offer online classes in Spanish, English language (ESL/EFL), TOEFL exam prep and writing. I have taught students from age 3 to senior citizens. I have experience teaching in language centers, bilingual schools and in companies.
I have a TEFL diploma, TBE (Teacher of Business English) Certificate, BA in English Language Learner Studies with a minor in History and an MA in Teaching and Learning with Technology with a specialization as an online educator. Currently, I am pursuing my second MA degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
I begin with new student by identifying their priorities and then setting a SMART goal. Based on the timeline, I make an action plan that we follow so the student can see progress in each and every class. We reevaluate goals and materials as needed.
To make the online classes more interesting and effec
tive, we will use slides to collaborate on the materials together. This allows us to communicate in real time and the information is saved to the drive, so it is easily accessible from any computer, smartphone or tablet.
We can import images, verb charts, worksheets, PDF and doc files, ebooks and videos as needed. Using the tools, you and I will both be able to edit, write and draw on the materials and add any additional notes, links or resources during or between classes.
Please don't hesitate to use the "Ask a question" feature to contact me with any special circumstances or concerns.
This lesson is ONLY for spanish speakers who want to learn English as ESL. Esta clase es SOLAMENTE para hispanohablantes que deseen aprender inglés de una forma sencilla y práctica. Las clases incluye entre otros temas: Vocabulario de uso diario Presentación Cultura aplicada al lenguaje Práctica de inglés con hablantes nativos.

Hi everyone! I’m Ty! I’m an English Coach (Accent & Fluency Coach), neurolinguist, and translator. I’ve worked as an English teacher for almost 10 years. During that period I’ve also graduated from Law School, but since English has been my passion all along, I decided not to pursue that career. I’ve already had the awesome opportunity to coach hundreds of people, in face to face and online sessions. I coach people that want to improve their English and reach fluency, and I also coach people that want to sound 100% American. I have worked with coachees ranging from age 3 to 80! I’m 100% positive that I know exactly what it takes to become a fluent and confident English speaker. I know tons of tricks and methods to an easier, f
un and brain-friendly learning journey. I love working with students to improve conversational skills, build confidence and encourage them to improve, not only their English but improve as human beings. I became an English Coach after I noticed that people were having classes for six months (or more) and still were not able to have a simple conversation. So the only option was to believe that the method people were learning from was not efficient enough. I’ve noticed that people were having English classes but were not really using the language and sometimes, not even having enough contact with it to improve.
How I work
I’ve never been a huge fan of traditional methods, which is usually what we see out there. This idea of learning a language through grammar, and thinking that you will reach fluency like that never made much sense to me. What I actually believe, is immersing yourself in a language and, before you ask me, you don’t need to live in an English speaking country to do that. I can show you exactly how to do that from the comfort of your own place. And the best thing is that, as your English Coach, I will support you through your fluency journey. We’ll have a few live sessions every week but we’re also in constant touch because I believe that this is the best way for you to become fluent and actually acquire the language.
Ty is great! He is an excellent coach! He really helped me a lot! I went from an English learner to an English Speaker... FINALLY! :)

Amazing Coach!! The only one that was able to make me sound better!!

Ty rocks!!! I’ve had taken classes before with a lot of teachers but I could never see myself becoming comfortable to speak with a native English speaker. After having classes with Ty, he showed everything in a very simple way. Now I’m able to talk to anyone without feeling concerned.
No matter how good or bad you are in the language I can get you to understand it in the shortest amount of time possible.

I met Tia during one of her seminars. I started taking life coaching classes with her immediately. I had many issues: my health was falling apart, I was getting depressed, my relationships with people didn't work well, and I really hated my job. So, slowly we started working on all these areas. I won't get into details, but she is not just a motivational teacher, she is searching for answers. She is taking every client so closely to her heart. I'm glad I decided to work on myself. It is a process, but I get so much more focused. I know what I want. And I am confident I can achieve what I want. This is so new to me. I learn to accept myself, love my past and be open to my future. I don't blame myself for my mistakes. I know - now I know better. She is a kind person. She doesn't judge you. No matter what you've done. She is teaching you to see how your past affects your future. She connects the dots. And works hard with you to open your future. Tia is also a yoga and meditation coach and two months ago I started taking her yoga sessions as well. She teaches you how to breath correctly, how to eat right, now to meditate and do yoga postures. I'm on the right track. And I recommend this teacher. Certainly.

I take singing, songwriting and piano lessons with Tia for a few years already! I started - i didn't know much about music, but i had big dreams! Now I have my band, I write, record. I even had a small tour in NY and NJ! I love singing, performing - this is my best therapy and I love helping people with my music. My pitch and rhythm are good now and I had problems before. My songwriting skills improve too. Tia believes that everyone is talented. And she helps you rediscover yourself and unlock your full potential.
"Before I met Anna my writing skill was not that much good. Her teaching style is the best way to learn. She encourages me to write more and share her know
ledge. I really learned a lot from her. Anna is a disciplined professional. She's a dedicated trainer, very patient and offers great techniques and great advice. Anna is a warm and caring person."

y to use the adjective and or verb. I can said She Isabel it’s a wonderful teacher. By the way she teach me how pronounce better the worlds with less accent. I’m very happy with my teacher Isabel. 😊😊"
"I had the opportunity to work with Douglas a number of times during my tenure as a part-time instructor at SCORE Educational Center. What I noticed about
him was that he related very well to the children he worked with - he was a very enthusiastic tutor of English and math! He was most generous with the "high fives" and praise, and he also knew how to get students back on track if their focus strayed. Also, I saw him work very well with the parents; he always took the time to patiently explain lesson plans and students' progress between sessions. I have known Douglas personally for many years. He was the one who encouraged me to work at SCORE Educational Center given my background in Education - I thank him for that because I enjoyed my time there very much while I was able to stay (unfortunately, I had to leave that position for a full-time job elsewhere). SCORE Educational Center is no longer in existence. Douglas currently works as an independent tutor, and given how long I've seen clients stick with him, I have no doubt that they are enjoying the same level of attention and enthusiasm he provided at SCORE. When he speaks about the progress of independent clients and how they respond to him, it is with enthusiasm and a glowing smile. If you are looking for a tutor that is intelligent, dedicated, enthusiastic, and simply great with kids and parents, then Douglas is your man."
"She is good."
"Very good instructor"
"I'm a learner of English as a second language and I can say with confidence that Amanda is one of the most passionate, dedicated, and successful teachers

"Tom is an excellent English teacher. He catches the student's attention and works with the student. I highly recommend Tom to everyone who is interested i
n learning English - at all levels."
"Erol did work for me on my term paper, assisting with the development of a persuasive, unique topic. He provided valuable ideas that lent depth and substa
nce to my writing. He is also proficient with discussion and debate coaching. One way or the other, you will get your money's worth for any of his subjects."
