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

Marie is very professional and flexible. Her lessons are age appropriate and fun. She is willing to make changes to lessons based on parent feedback. Overall, my kids (ages 9 and 12) are learning French and having fun. Merci, Marie!

I have been taking Arabic lessons with Marie for several months, now. The passion and dedication with which she approaches every class is amazing. She is always well prepared, patient, and keeps the student's best interest in mind. I, myself, used to work in education for over ten years, and now, as Marie's student, I must say that Marie is absolutely born to teach! I would wholeheartedly recommend her.

Marie is an incredible instructor. She is kind, patient and extremely knowledgeable. She worked with me to find out which skills I was missing and targeted them! I highly recommend working with Marie.

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

Having always been in an International School I've had many English teachers but I can easily say that Mr. Ben was one of my favourites.

He was always fun and a pleasure to learn with, while being extremely passionate about what he does. I was lucky to have Mr. Ben as my English teacher and would recommend him without hesitation.

The Complete List of English Idioms, Proverbs, & Expressions

Although English idioms don't make sense at first, these unique expressions (together with proverbs) add substance and humor to our conversations. The Oxford Dictionary defines the word "idiom" as a: "group of words established by usage as having a meaning not deducible from those of the individual words (e.g. over the moon, see the light)." This means that English idioms should not be taken literally, because their meaning is metaphorical. You don't really wish someone would “break a …
