Private ESL Teacher

I've been teaching English for 7 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of the American culture, study abroad, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro!

About Daniel

I love teaching, I can teach you at where you at and take you where you need to be. I only need a student with the desire to learn and to practice.

I like to help students realize they have the intelligence and ability to solve the problems on their own, they just need the right direction. Nothing is too difficult once we understand how to do it!

ESL Tutoring

If you are a non-native English speaker and would like to improve your English language skills, our ESL courses could be your solution. These courses are created for intermediate to advanced students, and can help you improve your English language skills for professional, academic, or social settings. Our ESL instructors prepare students for the core components of American English:

Reading
Writing
Listening
Speaking
These can be taught at beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels, depending on your American English proficiency, how well you read, write, speak, and use grammar. We will test you initially to determine what your specific needs are, and continue to assess you regularly in order to adapt the course as your skills develop.

ESL Courses

Each course will consist of lectures, discussions, and hands-on learning through student demonstration. Participation in activities, discussions, visual learning aids, and role plays will be ...

I fully understand the approach and needs for ESL as my children themselves benefited from this program when we first arrived in the US, from France.

About Isabelle

I am a native French speaker born in France; I have lived in the USA since 2000 and speak English fluently. I teach both French and English as a Second Language (ESL). I am used to teaching/ coaching/ interacting with students of all ages (12-80+) and with professionals in a corporate environment. In fact I have worked in-countries and remotely with people located in France, Poland, India, Canada, Guatemala and Brazil. I speak some Spanish and German, and that might help you as well, depending on your background. I am happy to add a cultural dimension to the language support. For Life Coaching lessons, I draw from my experience and best practices. I will share simple yet highly effective tips and approaches to help you meet your needs.

For best results; I recommend a minimum of 2 (two) 45-minute sessions per week for the first 20 les

sons to gain some momentum and build strong foundations. I look for students sincerely interested in making great strides and committed.

Happy to start any time soon. THX for visiting my profile. Questions welcome!

In preparation for a trip to France, and not knowing any French at all, I started taking French lessons from Isabelle several months ago. She has helped me a lot with pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary. She is an excellent teacher.

Isabelle is an absolutely marvelous teacher - anyone and everyone would benefit from taking classes with her.
I speak French well and my goal is to improve my conversational skills so that I can keep up with my monthly French book group. I am the only American in a group of French women and French is spoken the whole time.
Isabelle has been spectacular in helping me sharpen and improve my conversational skills. Our class is one long conversation - very carefully orchestrated by Isabelle so that each class is both productive and delightful.
I love to discuss the French culture and culture in general and Isabelle invariably makes that part of the conversation. But i think that Isabelle could talk with great knowledge and interest about many topics.
Each session flies by and each session makes my conversational skills sharper.
I feel very lucky that Isabelle is my teacher.

My students experience organic language teaching techniques rooted in the vernacular use of English and conversation, and supported by solid grammar and mechanics study in the areas we identify you need it most. I diagnose the weak spots in your conversational English and we attack those with precision using a mix of reading, writing and exercises focused on the areas you need help with. I give homework each week and I make personal audio files for my students which they use every week to hone their pronunciation mastery.

About Amanda

Learning always takes on a new exciting flavor when you're working with someone who is truly passionate about seeing their students succeed, and that's me! I have been teaching all ages for about 16 years and I love my work.

My passion is English, English literature, writing (I am a published fiction author), and helping people acquire English through ESL instruction. I have students from Hong Kong to Houston and I love it! I also teach SAT and ACT verbal and essay writing sections and scored a perfect 6 on the essay for the GRE exam. I am a supportive and insightful writing coach and editor. I worked at the Paris Review just out of college in the editorial department and great works of English literature and non-fiction excite me profoundly. I have students now from middle school through to their 50's and I love them all.

I work

with adult business people on written presentations and research projects, from all over the world. Also many college level students work with me editing and perfecting essays for their classes and on research paper construction, development and editing in subjects areas as diverse as mapping genomes for olfactory function in mice to French literature theses or film studies papers.

I have a number of middle school kids working with me on creative writing currently as well.

I only teach online using Skype which is the easiest and most flexible way for me to work with my students from all over the world.
I work out of the EST time zone.

Just got my ACT score back, went 160 higher this time due to working with Amanda. I am in range for the school I have my heart set on. This teacher knows the exam and she will push you to your absolute best.

I needed to improve my score on my SAT by 150 points. I worked with Amanda for 8 weeks, 2 hours a week, and I did it. I increased by 160. I also improved my essay score by 5 points! She is easy to work with, flexible and an expert at these exams. She also worked with me on the ACT and I scored an overall 34. Later I also needed to pass an essay exam to take classes through Harvard, English is not my first language. I passed the exam from working with Amanda and I was totally confident when I took the test, which makes a huge difference.

Private ESL Teacher

English is the language of the world! I'm amazed at how many bilingual people there are now living in Mexico, where I live. Aren't you ready to be one of them? Whether your areas of need are academic reading and writing or casual speaking, I can help you to improve your skills. We will use a variety of online sources and books as the classes progress.

I've got ten years of experience teaching all aspects of ESL: reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Coupled with a Master's degree in Education and a Graduate Certificate in TESL, I'm fully qualified to help you bring your English language skills to the next level. My accent is a neutral North American accent and I can teach you how to mimic me and other Americans so that you can understand and be understood.

I look forward to working with you!

About Jeanne

Hello! I'm excited to have the chance to help you with your English! I'm a native speaker from Cleveland, OH in the USA and have ten years of experience teaching Accent Reduction and ESL. I've got a BA in Spanish and a Master's in Education with a Graduate Certificate in TESL. My students LOVE me a lot and I always receive high ratings. I also speak fluent Spanish and I'm learning French and Russian, so I know the challenge of mastering a foreign language.

My favorite area to teach is pronunciation and accent reduction, but I can also help you with grammar, reading, writing, idioms, phrasal verbs, vocabulary... you name it! Need help with a presentation? Want me to check your emails? I'm happy to help. In addition, I like to have fun when I teach so that you have fun as you learn. We can incorporate tongue twisters, video, poems, or wh

atever you are passionate about.
IMPORTANT: I am a very light-hearted person. At the same time, I am responsible as a teacher, but if you are a person who takes life very seriously, I may not be a good fit for you.

I've also got an Associate's degree in nursing and a background in business, as I was the owner of a food business for 3 1/2 years. So I'd be happy to focus on either medical or business vocabulary if you like. Currently, I live in Mexico with my husband and our pooch, Flaco. I was away from teaching for a few years but I'm happy to be back into it and meeting new friends from all over the world. Like you!

NOTE ABOUT SCHEDULING: in order to get the most benefit in as short a time as possible, I recommend scheduling classes 2 to 3 times a week for 30 to 60 minutes.

Private ESL Teacher

I've been teaching various things for over 20 years, including teaching ESL to students internationally online and in person. My style is very encouraging and motivating. My approach is to focus on building skills in pronunciation and comprehension because it is critical for being able to clearly communicate. Conversational English is what my international student's tell me is their weakest area. They tell me they want to practice having conversations because they usually don't have native English speakers to talk with. I create a very relaxed and safe-to-make mistakes kind of environment. If you want to practice your conversational skills, let's chat. If you want to build your comprehension and other English skills, let's work together. I look forward to meeting you. See you in the classroom.

About Mardee

Welcome. I'm a mature teacher with a Master degree and TEFL certification. I've been teaching for over 20 years and love it. I am an enthusiastic and motivating teacher. I love to have fun and I enjoy teaching students of all levels. I have taught in the classroom and online for years. I love to travel to experience different cultures and learn from them, which is one reason I started teaching online to ESL students. I have work with students online from all over the world for a few years. Working online allows me to meet students I may not otherwise get to meet. It also allows me the freedom to work and travel. I plan to travel to Asia in October 2019 to meet some of my students I've been teaching for a couple of years.

My background in teaching spans many different topics, including K-12 teaching educational subjects and adults

in career development. Primarily I teach ESL students now and I ABSOLUTELY love it.

I'll see you in the classroom.

"Hello,
When I moved from Russia to US in 2011, my English was at beginner’s level and I desperately needed to start speaking this language as soon as pos
sible: especially for my job but also for my every day life.
I tried to take some ESL classes at local colleges and also study with a tutor but it did not work very well. Instead I became more afraid of making mistakes or saying something not correctly. I was frustrated and started to think that I am just not made for learning new languages.
I heard about Roman from my colleague who did intensive French language program designed and taught by mr. Nam. So he told me that Roman also teaches ESL. I decided to give it a try.
After three months of classes with Roman my English improved so much! From the beginning of classes I started to feel so motivated and everything was explained in really simple way. I don’t really understand how Roman was doing this but every class and even every homework was so interesting and so fun to do. I loved to hear myself speak English better and better. I started to use my english in any situation and I felt so confident.
Now, after four years living in US my English is much better but i know that the most important step in my progress was the program I did with Roman and I am very thankful for all his help."

For immigrants new to the U.S., the challenge of learning a second language can be tough. With so many options available, what's the best way to learn English?
