"Tell them and they will forget , show them and they may remember, involve them and they will understand." This is the philosophy by which I plan my English language classes. I incorporate real life reading material, listening material and functional speaking role plays into my lessons.

Before starting lessons with me, I will call to discuss your specific English learning goals. Do you want to focus on Speaking Accent, Conversation, Listening, Writing, Reading, etc. I will then tailor each lesson just for you.

I also teach Business English to students and business professionals. I teach children as well.

DAVID IS AN OUTSTANDING TEACHER IN EVERY RESPECT. HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH SEEMS EXCELLENT, AND HIS INTEREST IN THIS LANGUAGE IS CLEARLY VERY STRONG. THIS ALLOWS CLOSE ANALYSIS OF SPANISH, AND STANDS AS A SIGNIFICANT BENEFIT TO THE DIDACTIC PROCESS. IN TURN THIS PROMOTES A SPIRIT OF LEARNING IN CLASS WHICH IS INFORMATIVE AND GOOD FUN. FINALLY HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH/ENGLISH COGNATES AND INDO-EUROPEAN ROOTS IS UNUSUALLY BROAD, WHICH MAKES LEARNING SPANISH WITH HIM EASY AND ENTERTAINING. I BELIEVE DAVID HAS A TRUE VOCATION FOR TEACHING, AND I HOPE I CAN GO ON WITH LESSONS WITH HIM FOR SOME TIME TO COME.

David is a great instructor. My son is 9 and a beginner and David is very good with him.

I was impressed with her dialogue delivery to my kids and her face expressions, Me and my wife personally found her approach to our kids truly remarkable and commendable. Additionally, the skill of using a computer as a teaching tool was very professional. As a teacher, she is very dedicated and devoted person.

"I've chosen Staphanie as my teacher, because I needed someone who will really quickly help me make my English accent better. I took the fact that she is also a musician as a big advantage as I assumed she'll be able to hear all the false accentuation I make. In fact, if you want to work on your English skills, it's the best combination of skills.
It was really clever decision. Stephanie is able to explain things clearly and fast. Step by step, syllable by syllable, trains student how to speak properly. If you're ready to do your homework and want to see progress fast, Stephanie is perfect person to work with. And she is very kind, too!"

Learn English in Atlanta

About 1.5 billion people speak English in the world, and only around 360 million are native speakers. This means that despite English's difficult pronunciation rules, strange spelling, and irregular conjugations, more than a billion people are currently studying English as a second language. And the number of non-native English speakers is only expected to grow. 

But studying English with only a textbook will make it difficult to learn proper pronunciation. It also makes it tough to pick up nuances that you can only learn from an experienced tutor. In this guide, we’ll discuss how learning ESL in Atlanta, Georgia can help you speak like a native and reach your desired level of proficiency faster.

The Benefits of Learning English as a Second Language in Atlanta, GA

Lots of factors make Atlanta a great place to learn English. Friendly people fill the city and welcome newcomers with southern hospitality. Plus, while you take English classes in Atlanta, GA, you'll be able to immerse yourself in the language by enjoying everything the city has to offer. 

One of the largest cities in the southern United States, Atlanta offers everything from cultural events and historical exhibits to professional sports, great food, and educational centers. On a hot day, consider touring the World of Coca-Cola, where you can take an interactive trip through the history of the Coca-Cola Company and sample over 100 different ice-cold beverages. 

You can also take in American culture while strolling through Piedmont Park, watching a show at the Fox Theater, or observing wildlife at Zoo Atlanta. And be sure to try a top-rated dish at B's Cracklin' Barbecue - one of Atlanta's most popular barbecue restaurants.

Choosing an English Tutor in Atlanta

When you're ready to sign up for private English lessons in Atlanta, GA, you'll find over 200 tutors in our directory, with many available to meet face-to-face in and around Atlanta. Our tutors are highly recommended, certified, and experienced. For more personalized instruction, we recommend selecting an ESL teacher in Atlanta who also speaks your native language.

For example, Isabel L. is one of our well-loved tutors who hails from Smyrna, just north of Atlanta's city center. She teaches students of all ages and skill levels. She also strives to keep each class entertaining and engaging to encourage fast learning.

Or you may prefer to learn with one of our top-rated online tutors, such as Kelly M. A five-star reviewer wrote- "Miss Kelly is very professional, dedicated, and attentive to my needs... She used different teaching methods and tools to help me understand my language faults." If you need help choosing the best tutor for you, contact our helpful Student Support staff. 

Where to Take English Classes in Atlanta, GA

One of the best parts of studying ESL in Atlanta, Georgia is getting to enjoy all the unique sights and meeting spots the city has to offer. We recommend choosing a quiet place to meet for your private, Atlanta ESL classes. Consider using a meeting room at the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library, or catch a cool breeze at Centennial Olympic Park. 

After you've had a couple of lessons, consider venturing out with your Atlanta English tutor for a more immersive lesson. Take in a ball game at Turner Field, or ask your tutor for a cultural experience at a local restaurant serving up authentic southern food, like South City Kitchen Midtown or Mary Mac's Tea Room.

If you prefer to take online ESL classes in Atlanta, we recommend finding a location with strong WiFi where you’ll be able to hear your instructor. You should also choose a time when you’ll experience minimal interruptions. Whether you stay home, go to the library, or enjoy a cup of coffee at a cafe during your lesson, our English teachers are flexible and work with your needs.

Preparing for ESL Classes in Atlanta

Before your first lesson, be sure you have all the supplies you need to learn English in Atlanta. Drop by Paper Source to pick up new pens, notebooks, and highlighters for taking notes. Then, visit a local library branch to check out an English dictionary and other reading materials.

Reading and singing are both great ways to supplement your ESL classes. Jive to some music at Fantasyland Records. Then, find a juicy title on the shelves of a local bookstore, like A Cappella Books. 

You can also practice English in a local Meetup group like the Atlanta English Language and TOEFL/IELTS Meetup. However you perfect your conjugations and pronunciations with your English tutor in Atlanta, learning ESL is sure to take you far in this busy and diverse city!
