Just finished the first class on accent reduction with Michelle. She is AMAZING! She put herself in my shoes, trying to analyze the pronunciation pattern in my own language, encouraging me to take a moment to reward myself for the efforts and achievements along the English learning journey. Most importantly, she is professional d exceptional in interactive teaching. Thanks again Michelle.

Sonia is so very kind to my son. He has not had a good expereince in school with learning how to read. She took his sour attitude and turned it around to something sweet. Now I have a child that loves coming to her sessions. He even asks to come on Saturdays. His grade levels have risen on the state assessments from a 1.2 to 3.1 in less than 6 months.
Daria
Sonia has instructed my daughter since 2016. My daughter has an IEP for reading and the school was not helping her improve her reading skills to grade level. In our state if one does not pass the end of grade assessment in reading, you are retained in that grade level. Sonia was able to assit my daughter in being promted to the next grade. She helped my daughter bring her scores up 2 grade levels in 1 year. I call that success!
John
My son has received instruction from Sonia for 4 years. She is ever so patient, kind, and friendly. She makes learning a boring subject like math fun. My son's math anxiety has lessened due to her methods and I hope she can continue working with him in the future.

Online ESL Teacher

Hello!

I am a UC Berkeley graduate and TEFL certified. I completed my TEFL in Thailand last year and have been teaching English online full-time for almost one year. I have a combined total of 5 years experience teaching, tutoring, and coaching English speaking and writing. I love to teach and make a difference in the world.

My lessons are fun and easy-going. There are two main strategies I use to teach Enlish:

1) General Conversation. In my "general conversation" lessons, we simply chat for the duration of our time together. During the talk, I will update corrections to the chat box in real time. Then we can discuss or you can review later at your convenience. Totally up to you!

2) Formal Lesson. In "formal lessons," I will instruct a lesson based upon your agreed skill or comfortability level. We can make this decision together. The lesson will either be based upon visual aids that I provide, online materials, or both!

My students have had success with, and enjoyed, both. You

Good lesson. If you can share with me the curriculum before hand, then you don’t have to type each time you mention a word or a sentence, that would be better.

"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!"

ESL Learners: Are You Making These 21 Common Mistakes?

There are certainly some tricky words in the English language! And sometimes, people who have learned English as a second language mix up these words. Want to avoid making the same mistakes? Here are the words ESL learners misuse the most. Them, Those, and These "Them" is a pronoun that stands in the place of a plural noun. It is commonly used as the subject of a sentence, as in: Did you see them? or Have you seen the scissors? I used them to cut the labels off my T-shirts; now I can’t fin …
