I enjoy teaching students to speak English. Hour sessions are available but count as two 30 minute sessions back to back.
I love working with students of all ages and levels in person and online. I've worked with professionals on TV, Broadway, MTV as well as students 3 years old to 97 just studying for fun.
Adam runs successful teaching studios in New York City, Watchung, New Jersey, and online.

Languages are my passion, and I have been teaching them for over 10 years. Whether you are learning English As A Second Language, or you are a native speaker who just needs some help, I can help you reach your goal. Patient and gentle, I will customize my lessons to fit your learning style, and your needs. We can work with a text you have, or I can suggest books for us to learn from, depending on your level.
I lived in Israel for over a decade, and graduated from the University of Jerusalem with degrees in Education and History. I regularly read Torah, chant megillot, and lead services in my synagogue.
I grew up in Sweden, speaking Swedish at home, but going to French school. At age four, I was immersed in a French environment, and had to sink or swim. I swam! In my late teens, my family moved to Israel, so I became fluent in Hebrew as well. I understand a lot about the language acquisition process.
While languages fascinate me, and come easily to me, I understand that that is not the case for everyone. I am very patient, and willing to try different methods in order to succeed. I realize that some people learn best by seeing the materials, while others need to hear them, or even sing them! Others need to move their bodies and engage in
kinesthetic learning. I facilitate all these methods. I have taught all ages, from preschoolers to the elderly. I have taught in schools, preschools, informal educational settings (like summer camps) as well as one-on-one privately.
I’m very flexible with timing, and available as often as you’d like, Sunday to Friday.
Bettina is a great teacher! Very accommodating, explains things in a way that makes it easy for non-French speakers to understand

Bettina helped me to succeed at speaking French with my non-English speaking friends in Paris, on a recent trip to Paris. She helped me realize that I could speak the language again. Bettinas’ style, knowledge, and patience are some of her keys to my success in Paris. I appreciate her effort. I will continue in a manner such that I will not lose this progress. Merci beacoup!
I focus on getting students comfortable and capable of communicating in English functionally and conversationally.
If you have never spoken any English before, or if you are already feeling very comfortable speaking English, I can work with you! I work with students who have never seen the English alphabet, but also with highly advanced business professionals. I adjust to your comprehension level.
Hello! My name is Pauline.
I work with students of all levels, and I adjust to your comprehension level. I focus on getting students comfortable and capable of communicating in English functionally and conversationally.
I am a native English speaker, and I have worked in the United States school system since 2010. I have a Master's degree in education. I'm licensed to teach all ages, preschool to adults, and I have a TEFL certification.
I am a Certified Interpreter in five languages with the US Defense Language Institute Monterrey, California.
English is my third language but I didn’t stop here. I taught my mother and so many others tips on how to learn this language faster in a correct way, with love for proper command in vocabulary and grammar.
If you speak a Romantic language, even better; I’ll find “anchors” to help you connect the dots and allow you to find English words faster.
If your native language is not among the Romantic ones, don’t despair (though my assumption is that you stopped reading by now). Mentors are critical, and I’ll teach you ways to find balance, consistency, and discipline in learning English as a First or Second Language.
Before reading about me, I'd like to share up front the honor that my newest student, R., has brought to me by choosing to learn Romanian. Nothing special so far except that he is 100 years old!!!! Yes, you read that correctly: a century old. He is the outmost inspiring person in my life by teaching me that age is just a number and that learning can happen any day if we choose so. R is a medical doctor, a psychologist, a chemist and biologist. Words can't even define how great of a man he is and how grateful I am to learn from him, too. For instance, about a famous language called "esperanto", a language created in the late 19th century.
I'm an enthusiastic learner even after 19 years of formal education (two Masters, one Bachelor) earned on two continents continued by US military education in various forms, and formally tested studen
t who needed to document skills that were not formally captured on paper (like the foreign languages I know).
I love interacting with people and pass on my knowledge from five visited continents, instill love for learning and continuous curiosity for any subject out there. Nothing is impossible when you set your mind to it. Failing once doesn't mean that you'll never win (proof in my athletic years and life ever since); determination, hard work, self-motivation and a good supporting system can bring to reality even the most insignificant dreams that we believe may not come true, and especially those in which we passionately trust.
I believe in breaking down a goal into objectives, assigning tasks to each one of them, and then sticking to achieve them.
I'm a Certified Instructor with the Department of Homeland Security. My hobbies include practicing foreign languages (and proper grammar rules which highly reflect on one's education) by speaking them, learning about cultures and slangs, etymology, watching foreign movies, traveling internationally, taking photos, reading (a lot), carefully planning with room for error and impulsive decisions (to take the boredom out of things), meeting with life long friends, drawing, painting, and spending time outdoors for inspiration and health.
I'm elated at the opportunity of brainstorming with you and giving you tools to be an independent learner.
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.
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 finding the source of motivation for others.
Are you frustrated with the college application process? I can assist in this area and in aclimating to college environment. I've mentored many students through college, with great success.
I am very patient and do not have a problem with explaining words, alphabets, myself over and over again. I will try different ways of teaching you and we can both figure out what works best helping you get the results you would like to have. I know that not everyone is the same and every one has their own way of learning. I'll make sure to adapt your way in our lessons and if you do not know your way we can figure that out together. These lessons are about you and for you and I'll make sure to personalize them.
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.

ery organized and knowledgeable in her subject area. She is an enthusiastic, very patient and humorous sometimes. Mrs. Ghada is a self motivated and a fast learner when it comes to learning new teaching strategies. She encourages me to go the extra step in learning by sending me her written feed back notes on my submitted assignments. I liked that she always response quickly to my email questions.
