I have 10 years of experience tutoring english and math for standardized exams (SAT/ACT/GRE) test preparation, as well as helping new English speakers improve their vocabulary and conversational/writing skills.

I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My long-term pricing is very negotiable if we work together for an extended time.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have. However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. Or maybe the teacher/professor is not the b

I’m blessed to have this beautiful, creative, talented soul in my life! There’s not enough characters available in this review to list all the things I’ve learned from her. She has a special knack for explaining and instructing to even the most challenged of folks (e.g. me). Alina’s talent and ability to teach is 👅👅👅
Kelly
Alina is so fun, smart, and easy to work with. She has a natural talent for music, people, and is patient which makes her a wonderful instructor as she helps guide you through the learning experience. In a few short lessons with her I have learned far more than I thought I could ever in writing digital music. Getting to work with such a person has really sparked a passion. In myself to learn and dedicate more time to it. Her knowledge, experience, skills and passion truly make her an asset to any person looking to grow musically in composition or live performance.
Aerin
Alina is easy to get along with and knowledgeable about the techniques involved in djing.

She brings the fun to this exciting element of djing without feeling the pressure of having to get it all right on the first day. Alina moves at a slow pace, with patience, letting you take the wheel and move through it together. Can’t wait for our next session!

I just had my first upright bass lesson with Charles. Playing an instrument, when you know how, is one of the most fun things you can do, But getting lessons can be stressful. This was relaxing, pleasant and fun. Stress free. And I learned a lot. I can't wait to get back on that bass and practice this stuff.

"I would recommend Jesse for any tutoring need without reservation. In our household, Jesse has helped amplify the Spanish learning for a middle/hs student, helped an older student with the application process for graduate work and worked with someone on writing. He’s phenomenal at all of it for the following reasons: his patience, intelligence and good nature are exceptional; he can work with all temperaments; he will meet your student where they are. Most important: he is systematic and provides real executive functioning support for each task. He is an unusually talented tutor and human being."

English Language Conversations for Beginners

Although words may be limited and simple, it is still possible to enjoy conversations in English even if you are a beginner. I think that it’s essential to be able to express basic needs and to clearly express your identity. Let’s get started with the very basics and then we’ll build from there. Greetings and Introductions: When meeting new people you need to be able to greet them. If you are in an informal situation you might say, “Hey, I’m (name), nice to meet you.” In order …
