I have been teaching ESL for over ten years now. My goal is to try to make the process of learning English as a foreign language as close to the natural process of language acquisition as possible, creating a friendly and relaxed learning atmosphere, using a variety of tools and texts, and steering clear of dry, conventional grammar based lessons.

About Niusha

As a teacher, I try to cater each class to my student's individual needs and interests. Being bilingual myself, I am a strong believer that language and culture (and food!) are intertwined, and to learn any language, it is best to immerse oneself as deeply as possible. I started teaching ESL in 2

Niusha is a gem. She is a wonderful teacher and I have learned so much in a short amount of time. She is a great listener and incorporates my learning style and life into the lessons. I can say little phrases to my dog now and he gets to learn as well. Double lessons! Afarin!

Niusha is a great instructor for Farsi and is deeply knowledgeable as well as patient. I really looking forward to continue learning Farsi with her and unreservedly recommend her to anyone seeking to learn the language.

I have over 3 and a half years of online ESL with one of the most selective online ESL companies in China. In that time, I have taught over 2400 students ranging from the beginner who knows no English to those who are fluent. I like to tailor my lessons to each student and scaffold to their level. For beginners, it is helpful to have a supportive parent in the room to help encourage the student while rapport is established. If there are areas you'd like to focus on, I can accommodate those request. My goal for each student is to help them achieve their potential for English learning. I believe in helping students speak English with a native accent, so I focus on pronunciation correction and I encourage all levels of students to speak in complete sentences that are catered to their skill level. I provide encouragement throughout the lesson and allow students to choose a digital reward based on their likes that they get to see at intervals during the lesson. My classroom is a positive ...

My greatest passion in life is the diversity of culture, and I find language to be one of the most fascinating aspect. Just speaking English doesn't qualify one to teach it. In addition to being a native speaker of Standard English, I am a holder of a Bachelor of Arts in Modern Languages which means that I am professionally trained to teach a language. I have also studied Spanish, and French. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Language, and a minor in international relations, which was designed for proficiency in speaking as well as for pedagogy ( the science of teaching). I have taken many university level courses in linguistics; ( morphology, semantics etc). I utilize a very beginner-friendly approach to teaching ESL; utilizing simple and fun tools that supports learning as well as retention of the information. Most importantly, I have years of practical experience in private tutoring. You don't have to take my word for it. Choose me as your instructor, and fulfill your dreams ...

Do you remember your days of foreign language class in school? I do, and it was awful! We spent hour upon hour memorizing vocabulary and grammar. We copied, translated, conjugated, and labelled. And yet, at the end of each year I know exactly what I started with - nothing!

Since then, I've been able to learn two other languages by myself - Spanish and Portuguese. I didn't study these languages in school, or ever step foot inside an foreign-language classroom. Instead, I created my own method of learning that sees language for what it really is - a way to communicate. In my classes, we will focus on communication, as it is the single most important skill you can develop. I will teach you grammar, and I will teach you conjugation. I'll even expect you to learn new vocabulary. But the center of our learning will always be communication. "How can I use this to communicate with others?" Everything we learn will be centered around that question.

Naturally, each class will be designed with

I grew up in Florida, USA - about one hour from Orlando. As a teenager, I started to learn my first foreign language - Portuguese.

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 ...

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've been teaching ESL for 3 years now and my students have gone on to love English and have improved reading, writing, listening and speaking skills, especially the difficulties in English pronunciation. I speak American English. Within the first few lessons you will learn new sentences and start learning how to have a conversation with native English speakers! Then you will go on to work on grammar, reading, writing, and listening skills. We will also focus on pronunciation and common words and phrases including slang. Soon you will be speaking like a native! I typically use Practice Makes Perfect book series which are very reasonably priced and easy to find on Amazon or book stores. I also use multimedia such as podcasts, music, news broadcasts, stories, poems, newspapers, worksheets, games, and activities. I love working with everyone from 5 years on up to older adults. I will find out exactly what you want to learn and why you want to learn English and then tailor lessons ...

Our 28 year old autistic son came skipping down the stairs with a joy and enthusiasm we haven't seen in a very long time. He told me all about the lesson, then he told me all about Stephanie G. The instruction went so well online he created an earring. Amazing, considering his learning disabilities which include fine motor skill issues.
The statment , " She liked me too. She liked my ideas and said I was doing a good job," will stay in my heart forever.
HIs joy and confidence are absolutlely priceless.
Thank you, Stephanie G. for being an incredibly motivating skilled teacher.
