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.
July 2, 2018
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.

My lessons are so unique because I am a very intuitive teacher. I customize my lessons in a way that my student really excels in the time that is with me. As a native Spanish speaker and I very knowledgeable to the areas of the language that might tend to be a little bit more complex for some students. I had been tutoring students for five years and I have seen my students raise their confidence and proficiency with their Spanish skills beyond what they though possible. Giving the right tools and resources to each students is key to their success.

Bonjour & bienvenue!

French is my native language and whether you're a beginner or experienced French speaker, I would be happy to:
1) Teach you French from scratch,
2) Enrich your vocabulary & conversational abilities, or
3) Polish your accent to make you sound like a real French person!

---------------Frequently Asked Questions---------------

2- What type of lessons would you recommend?

=> For beginner or intermediate level: 60 min lessons
=> For advanced level: 30 min, 45 min or more (100% conversation).
=> For kids: 45 to 60 min, depending how young and how are their focus capabilities.

2- Is scheduling flexible? Do I have to pick a specific day/time and stick with it?

=> I'm very

Meriem was very friendly and positive. The time flew by. I hadn't spoken French in a while, so I was nervous at first. But she made me feel very comfortable. She was patient and always gave me plenty of time to formulate my responses. I'm looking forward to future classes.

"Her classes are absolutely wonderful. I'm learning Korean much faster than if I had stuck with self studying alone.Not only is she patient and honest about the mistakes I make but she also works at it until I get the pronunciation right. And believe me when I say that she's had her work cut out for her because I roll my r's and over-pronounce every syllable as, I'm sure, most Americans do. She is a wonderful teacher and really fun. She makes learning a language - which is more than a challenge - enjoyable."
- Christy Patterson
Took Korean lessons from Youngju S.
"Youngju Lee is an amazing instructor. There are just not enough good things I can say about this instructor to give her full justice. She is patient, thorough, and has the ability to key into individual student strength and weakness. Her ability to change and adapt to individual learning style has been wonderful. I personally struggle with language. I been studying Korean on and off for many years, with no success. Now I feel I have finally found the instructor that can teach me this language and keep me motivated. I have always had the problem of staying motivate in my studies, however her lessons are so well done that I am engaged though out the entire lesson. When you find that special instructor keep them, cherish them, and treat them as well as you would treat your own family."
