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 was a good teacher to our son, he was patient and kind. Our son learned a lot from him, we hope in the future to use him again, if the opportunity arises. Thanks Keith!

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.

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

Jonathan has been teaching Kung Fu for my 13 yr old. He is thorough in explaining each move over the  video. (I think taking classes online needs special skill. We haven't had any technical issue with Jonathan's classes.) He schedules the class in advance and sends reminders and sends agenda before the class, so my son knows what to expect that day. He also talks to the parents at the end of the class if we have any questions. He is very punctual in starting the class. My son has been looking forward to the classes. Overall I am pretty happy to work with Jonathan and my son is happy to have him as his teacher and has shown improvements with just 4 classes.I highly recommend Jonathan.

I have been teaching English to both native and non-native (ESL) speakers for over a decade, both in a formal classroom and as an individual tutor. I do not simply teach "English"... I teach ENGLISH LITERACY! Thus, my instruction incorporates the four essential elements of literacy competence: reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Of course, this incorporates such traditional topics as grammar, vocabulary, and proper usage.

With me, you can expect lessons tailored to your own specific objective, be that university admission, business, professional development, tourism, or just plain fun!
