Hi, my name is Keith, and I teach English as a second language. I just finished my Certification for TEFL, so I'm looking forward to helping you or your child be successful at learning English. I'm open to any questions that you might have, and I will travel to your location, if that's what you prefer.

About Keith

Hi, my name is Keith and I have been involved in music from an early age. I love playing and teaching piano. I started taking lessons at the age of 9, and soon added trumpet and French Horn to my list of instrumental music lessons. I continued, through High School and College, taking music classes

Keith is an amazing teacher. My 7 year old son likes him very much. Before the lessons I worried our boy couldn’t build his interest in playing piano, just lose his enthusiasm after a while as the 7 years old always did. But Keith make me totally worry free, my son likes him very much, and he really knows how to build the kid’s interests and confidence while learning. Now my son enjoyed himself very much with Keith in their piano time. We are so lucky to find Keith.

We had four in-home lessons with Keith and he never once arrived on time. And not like 5 minutes late because of bad traffic or something. Once he was 40 minutes late, and another time he was 45 minutes late. For an hour lesson. At first I though there was some confusion because the time on take lessons was slightly different than the time we agreed to (he asked if we could start earlier than the time slot that was listed, and I agreed) but after speaking with him about it, we were both on the same page as to what time the lesson *should* begin, he just never arrived on time. He seems to be very overbooked and busy and does not respect his clients’ time. He told me that the disparity of arriving on time or a half hour late is “superfluous,” so if you hire him, be prepared to have a wide window of when he could show up. My kids liked him as a teacher, which is why I kept giving him chances and trying to work out scheduling issues (I offered to move our lessons to a different time, but he insisted the time we were at was fine) but in the end, things could not be resolved.

He’s an amazing piano teacher. Very kind and patient with my 5 yr old. Highly recommended

The best part of my tutoring is to give a good start for beginners. It will be the easy way. Students will be led step by step to gain knowledge and skills in speaking, reading, writing, and grammar issues as well. An easy start gives an easy way to go.

About Sergey

As I speak two languages English and Russian, I can teach both. Russian is my native language, so students can learn Russian from the native speaker. And that is the best way to learn foreign languages. I've been teaching Russian since 2010 and I use my own method, which is not like in boring books

Lessons with me are unique because I intentionally integrate learning and fun into one. To add, I use gestures, pictures, and videos throughout activities and lessons. I include slow and clear talking and pronunciation, add music and movement, increase my student's confidence and eagerness to learn while immersing themselves into something new. I will improve my student's verbal, non-verbal, and written communication skills, while preparing them for independence across the board of the English language.

Taking ESL lessons with me is extremely beneficial since I am also a student with access to high level English materials that I believe would enhance the ability of my ESL students to stand up among the best! I take pride in my teachings with precision to make sure you understand what you are learning and when to use it! I have thought lower level students, even my class because I am that good in what I do! To have me as a teacher is absolutely essential if you aim to advance your English!

I already had an advanced level of English, however I still needed to work on some of the nuances and prepositions in the language. Bryce has helped me immensely. I have started to teach English to others as my level has improved even more. I now feel confident teaching others English as a second language."
