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.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier 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 best

I will structure English lessons to your needs! Whatever issues you may have--grammar, pronunciation, basic vocabulary, or other--I will make that my focus. We will work together through games and small assignments, ranging in difficulty based on language level and attention span. I speak some German and French, but we will speak exclusively in English so you can get the practice you need!

Christine is absolutely amazing. Not only does she have a lovely voice, but she is also great at teaching others to sing too! I've been taking singing lessons with Christine for a few months now, and I can hear my voice getting better over time. Christine is so nice and patient during her lessons. She makes me feel better about my singing by interspersing constructive criticism with positive feedback and praise as well. She's always on time and you get your money's worth; she packs the time we have together with lots of useful ideas I can work on the rest of the week. Christine is positive and a joy to be around.
She is the absolute best. I highly recommend!

"The most important thing about teaching is reaching your students. You could have a world of knowledge locked away, but until you can learn to meet a student's needs and learning styles it will be just that, locked away. Marta has this quality of compassion and intuition about her students that separates her from your average teacher. She saw clearly what my needs and goals were and allowed me to find the solutions from inside myself. Many will attest to this fact. "She was my favorite teacher" is a very common remark from her past students even outside this platform. I observed my own enjoyment working with her as well as noticing her ability to integrate her teaching style with all kinds of students. For the fortunate to the most troubled Marta has a teaching quality that is frankly not found enough in the academic world. She is a teacher of the people and you would be lucky to learn from her."

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 …
