ENGLISH
Do you need to learn English for work, travel, or just for personal growth? My lessons are very interactive and engaging. I teach using sentences and phrases that relate to your personal or professional needs. We start with a simple conversation that builds up as much as it is comfortable for you. The goal is that you can immediately apply the material learned after the lesson. I use an array of strategies and techniques to help you succeed.

I have been teaching ESL to children (3+ years old), teenagers, and adult immigrants for over 10 years. Let's get started!

Learn Spanish with a native speaker! My lessons are engaging and useful (watch my videos). A lesson would typically start with the oral practice of a simple phrase.

I really enjoy my lessons with Nayeli. She is a very friendly and approachable teacher, and caters her lessons to your specific goals. Each lesson is rewarding and leaves me excited to learn more. She gives you tools to practice in between lessons, and this makes practicing manageable and fun. I would highly recommend Nayeli as a tutor to anyone who is interested in learning Spanish!

Private ESL Teacher

I hold a M.S. degree in TESOL and have taught both general and academic English for over 15 years, in various venues such as community organizations, community college and a private language academy, in addition to private tutoring.

My passion is to provide personalized instruction for English language learners. I work with each student to identify the specific areas that they want to focus on and create customized lessons to help them reach their goals. I use a communicative approach – we don’t just study grammar in my classes, we learn how to use the language in daily life! For students interested in English for Academic Purposes, I have extensive experience helping students prepare for university level English proficiency.

I became interested in teaching English when I lived in Venezuela, South America. I had studied Spanish in high school and college, but when I arrived in Venezuela, I discovered I couldn't understand what people were saying in Spanish and they couldn't understand me very well.

I have been teaching English as a foreign language (EFL) in China for more than 8 years and as a second language in the U.S. for one semester. In my ESL class, I encourage students to be brave and to appreciate their accent and their multiple cultural backgrounds.

Speaking English with an accent is bravery. That's part of your identity. Having multiple cultural backgrounds means you are unique and you can bring that uniqueness in your writing and discussion. And think about that, you can speak language(s) other than English, you are very special!

Hence, in my class, I am very willing to help students build their confidence and strengths in their English learning. I am not a native English speaker and my English is not perfect, but I see myself as a multi-competent teacher. Over the years of language teaching experience as a teacher and learning experience (I can speak five languages) as a multi-linguistic learner, I believe I can help you achieve your goal under our mutual ...

We could not be happier with the lessons, preparation and structure. Our child enjoys the study and is enthused. The ease with which virtual sessions and textbooks are integrated is refreshing and aligns with what we expect outside of our local school district

Guifang is an outstanding teacher. I started at zero and did not know where to start. She has planned out my learning journey and got me up to speed really fast. She makes the lessons fun and engaging. The lessons have been tailored to my needs.

I love helping people with their English language learning goals! I am a language and travel enthusiast with a variety of ESL teaching and tutoring experiences. Each lesson is custom designed to meet each student's unique goals and learning preferences. We'll draw from a variety of sources, such as song lyrics, articles, novels, ESL books, and my own materials. I meet students in coffee shops, parks, libraries, or other public places that work for both of us.

Please contact me with any questions and to get started. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you! :)
