Detra has been such a blessing to our family. She came to our home to evaluate our 7-year old daughter who has struggled with reading. She had a great rapport with our daughter, made her feel comfortable and even have fun during the evaluation. She has a patient and positive demeanor and put our daughter at ease. She then spent over an hour with me (her mom), going over the results of the evaluation and recommending steps to work on. Since that time, she has answered my many questions, offering additional resources and encouragement. Looking forward to having her work more with our daughter. Highly recommend Detra!

Ms. Damskov showed amazing love and care for my child and her job. She enthusiastically learned as much as she could about each subject so that she could teach it back to my struggling 8 year old. She is a wonderful tutor and teacher that I would readily send any of my 4 children to. I have full confidence that any of Ms. Damskov's students will not only do well under her, but far excel any expectations.
Your student will develop a love of learning under Ms. Damskov's teaching.

Chryssa has been an amazing teacher so far! She really knows how to teach a difficult language without overwhelming a beginner learner but while still moving at a pace that is comfortable and productive. Chryssa is patient and good at identifying what is difficult for you. I would recommend Chryssa to anyone wanting to learn Greek.

You can expect to improve your English fluency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. You can also expect to reduce your accent so that others can understand you better!
I hold a Master of Education degree specializing in Secondary Bilingual/ESL Education, in addition to a Bachelor of Arts degree in English. I also hold a Florida Professional Educator's Certification in ESOL (K-12) and English (grades 6-12). Additionally, I have over 16 years' of experience teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) and English as a Foreign Language (EFL) to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) (including adults) in the US, Japan, China, and Ecuador.

About Sara
As a seasoned educator, I know that the recipe for successful one-on-one learning is simple. It has only two main ingredients: your (or your child's) desire to learn, and the expertise I bring from 16 years of experience as a classroom teacher and tutor. When you combine them over the course one or more hours of tutoring, the result is a more confident, skilled, and knowledgeable learner who has achieved or made measurable progress towards his or her goals. The positive, friendly and colleagial relationship you will have with your tutor (me) is just the sweet icing on the cake!

I have been trained specifically in English language pedagogy. I received my M.A. Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) in 2016. I have taught learners at all levels from basic (Arabic and Chinese speakers who were still learning the Roman alphabet) to advanced (graduate students who needed help following the conventions of academic English). Whatever your English language need is, I can help.

About Courtney

Courtney possesses a passion for the English language, and she uses this passion to help students improve their writing, speaking, and reading skills. She has studied to teach native speakers and non-native speakers of English and can tailor her lessons to match any student goal.

ESL is a matter of sharing life lessons. Students already possess their own special talents and are full of life experiences from their L1 learnings. I will teach English as an L2 tool by sharing my life experiences, thereby making your life that much richer in language. In this day and age with texting and digital communication, the "Art of Communication" has been lost. My desire is to enthusiastically share my experiences in this lost art. Coming out of my lessons, students will have the confidence in their ability to express themselves comfortably within the American culture.

About John
Hi, my name is John Kim, and I am an experienced native American English teacher. I am a retired US Army Lieutenant Colonel with American diplomatic certifications in Japan and Korea. I have taught myself to be proficient in 5 languages. I taught Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced TOEFL English levels formally in school classrooms of 10-17 students. And of course, 1-on-1 private lessons also. You know that the four dreaded skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking are required in English schools, and you have already heard it over and over in your previous school lessons. Now, let me show you and share with you a different level of learning...called the "Art of Communication".

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
As a current teacher at an intensive English program in Georgia, USA, I have taught grammar, reading, writing, listening, and speaking to students raging from 18 to 60 years old. Most of my current students are preparing to apply to colleges in English-speaking countries or are improving their English to be better qualified for professional growth. Due to the nature of what I am doing now, I am very comfortable working with students who have academic and professional goals such preparation for TOEFL or IELTS, practice for business presentations, or technical writing. However, 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 s
et, it is imperative to understand students' backgrounds, aspirations for the 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.
