I am a native English speaker and have both tutored individuals ages 7 - 14 and taught English middle and high school classes in ESL (English as a Second Language) and regular English. Throughout, every student I have had has been different. Their needs and goals may often overlap, but success in achieving these goals often looks a little different for each one.

About Beth
I earned my BA in French with a minor in math from Pomona College, followed by my Masters in French Language Education from the Sorbonne University in Paris. I have six years of experience teaching English and English as a foreign language to middle and high school students.

I have taught private violin and viola lessons since the beginning of 2012. As a member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas, I have completed their violin pedagogy courses for Suzuki books one through four. I have played in various local orchestras since high school, including the San Diego Youth Symphony, the Pomona College Orchestra, the San Francisco Civic Symphony, San Francisco Civic Strings, the West Sacramento Community Orchestra, and the Rancho Cordova Civic Light Orchestra. I also play handbells, and currently play with RiverBells Sacramento.

Mrs. Jen has been a violin teacher for our daughter for 3.5 years. She is an extremely qualified and talented musician who deeply cares about her students and is committed to teaching. She is kind and patient, but also effective and motivating. When our 8 year old daughter learned Mrs. Jen was moving she said, "I probably will never have as neat or special of a violin teacher as Mrs. Jen"- and she's right!

First lesson was fine. We took a few minutes to find each other in a cafe setting but as it was also a meet and greet session I wasn't too concerned about time. As it turns out Beth more than made up the time. She's very pleasant and easy to speak with. We went over my goals, simple traveler type words, phrases and questions, and a work schedule to cover the next several weeks. Beth told me how she was going to approach teaching me after listening to my goals. I'm looking forward to the next session where we can focus on learning the language.

Bonjour!

I really enjoy teaching everything about the French and English languages. If you're looking to brush up on your French, looking for an after-school tutor for help in a French course or would like to start learning this lovely language, I am happy to personalize tutoring sessions to your goals!

I graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor's of Arts in French, French Literature and Psychology. I have over 8 years of teaching experience.

I have a vast experience teaching English as a Second Language. I did it for almost 20 years in my home country, Portugal and am now teaching it in a college.. I have worked with different age groups, from 5 year-olds to adults. I understand the difficulties of learning a new language and I try to provide intensive practice in the four major skills in language learning: speaking, reading, listening and writing. I am very patient and enthusiastic.

About Helena
I am a native speaker of Portuguese and got my degree in English (ESL) and French Teaching in my home country, Portugal. I have been teaching foreign languages and ESL for more than 20 years and am comfortable working with all age groups. I taught 17 years in Portugal (ESL and French; 6-12 grades and Adult Education Programs) and ever since I moved to the US in 2010 (Portuguese and Spanish in a corporation, and tutoring all four languages at home or online). I am a very patient, motivated and enthusiastic teacher and I always adjust my teaching methods to the student's age, needs and purpose. I never give up on a student and I am sure I can help him/her attain his/her full potential. I believe anyone can learn a new language but consistent repetition and refreshing before, during and after class is needed. I expect the student to be resp
onsible, patient and persistent in his learning process and I am willing to help him/her on the way.

Helena is awesome. I was initially hesitant to take lessons online since I thought it would be difficult to understand the subtle nuances of the language (Portuguese) or that we wouldn't get much done in the hour. Fortunately I was wrong. Not only was the hour spent together well organized, Helena also sent weekly study material and audios of the information we went over during our lesson which was extremely helpful. She is very knowledgeable and friendly, and I recommend her highly.

Experience, enthusiasm, and expertise describe me as a teacher. In addition to my training in Linguistics, Translation, Intercultural Communication and TESOL, I bring to the table 17 years of experience teaching English in a variety of contexts to a variety of students. I have taught middle and high school students craving attention and fun, business professionals striving for promotion, college students aspiring to study abroad, and PhDs polishing their communication skills. I will not overwhelm you with lots of talk and information; I will make YOU the center of each session. Regardless of the skills you want to practice (no kongfu though :)), I will do my best to accommodate your needs. As a person, I am efficient but friendly, serious but humorous, a challenger but an encourager. And, I look forward to working with you.

About Elena
If you are looking for an experienced and dedicated teacher to help you get high scores on TOEFL or IELTS or to prepare for college admission in the USA, look no more. As a current teacher at an intensive English program in Georgia, USA, I have been teaching grammar, reading, writing, listening, speaking, and test prep to students applying to colleges in English-speaking countries or improving their English to be better qualified for professional growth. I am also pretty comfortable working on more general goals such as daily conversation, US culture, reading for content, etc.

Here is my philosophy of teaching in a very very brief form: I am a big believer in needs analysis and diagnostic. Before any goals are set, it is imperative to understand students' backgrounds, aspirations for their future, and proficiency levels. Additionally,
I believe that setting tangible goals drives improvement and increases motivation. Finally, feedback, feedback, feedback! Intonation or vocabulary usage, personalized and specific feedback is what my students get and love.

As far as methodology goes, I am pretty eclectic. Again, methods and approaches are chosen based on students' needs. Sometimes we just have to work on drilling sounds and intonation or some simple grammar concepts like “do/does”, while at other times open conversation is the best way to practice the same content. One key component that doesn’t change is the focus on the student. I work hard on planning my lessons so that my students do most of the work during class. I also strive to contextualize everything around real life by choosing materials that are recent and relevant.

About Melissa
***Ask me about special rates for online, weekend sessions!***

I have been teaching Spanish, Portuguese and English at both the high school and college levels since 2007.

I enjoy working with students one on one and helping them feel empowered to use the language right away. I put a lot of time and joy into planning classes for each student, based on their goals and interests. I keep my classes really light and fun, but I will also make sure that you are learning!

I have experience working with students with learning differences, and have worked with children and adults.

Whatever your goals are with Spanish, I can help you get there! Get in touch any time to tell me about your goals. Hasta pronto!

I do believe that a class is first of all two people meeting to learn from each other (yes, you learn a lot as a teacher as well). I believe in dreams and I believe in working hard to achieve goals to make dreams come true, so I would be really happy to help you achieve yours. I believe that life is amazing and is generous and always gives us chances if we have an open heart. I believe in honesty and friendship and I believe that we could get along really well. I care for you and I am looking forward to meeting you and starting our journey :)

I had this very short deadline on a track that I was working on, and I was a bit stressed because I, at that moment, didn't have enough knowledge about audio editing and mixing vocals in Logic. I got Elena recommended by a friend and I'm really glad for that. I got the help I needed and she also inspired me to continue learning (and now I'm certified in Logic Pro X as well!! =) )

I'm not the quickest to learn new things (I need detailed explanations), but Elena showed patience and great skills in explaining things in a very easy way.

- I'd like to give my warmest recommendations!
