Private ESL Teacher

As a writer, a lifelong student of foreign language, and a daughter of an English professor, I have long had a passion for working with people who are new to the English language, or who speak English as a second language and want to learn more!

About Alexandra

I am a professional opera singer with a love for languages. I graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University with a Bachelors in Voice, and went on to study opera performance at the Opera Institute at Boston Universities. Since then, I've been working as a singer for over 10 years!

I have to sing in a lot of languages for my job, and I'm here to give you some of the tools I use when mastering pronunciation for your own accent reduction pursuits.

I am also a writer and lover of the English language (my mother is a lifelong English teacher), and love sharing this tough-to-master language with others.

A lot of the skills I have as a singer are so helpful for learning how to pronounce languages correctly AND how to support your voice to keep it healthy.

I can also help you in your own singing development and improvement! I can teach you

basic and advanced technical exercises to increase your breath support, tone quality, and overall musicianship.

I look forward to meeting and working with you!

My lesson went great! Alexandra understood the concept that she should adapt to me. She provides excellent, clear answers and offered additional helpful information with the whole process of learning. I'm thrilled that she customizes my needs accordingly.
Also she has a great personality.

I've been teaching ESL to adults for 10 years, both in face to face and on-line formats. As a former ESL student myself, I empathize with the struggle and frustration that comes when learning to communicate in a whole different language. I have accumulated several tips and strategies to facilitate practice and accelerate learning and fluency. I design my lessons to meet the goals of each student and strive to make the class fun and memorable. Let's work together to improve your written a/o spoken English!

About Nery

I am a teacher at heart. I like the language arts and the satisfaction that comes with helping others achieve their goals through learning a new language. I am a good communicator and adapt easily to new situations. I creatively customize lessons and instruction to meet the needs of the individual learner. I believe that creating a welcoming, fun and relaxing class environment fosters student’s confidence and a pleasant learning experience.

My professional life started in the corporate world, working as a Human Resources analyst before moving to the USA from my native México. I spent my first years in Texas at home, raising my kids and improving my bilingual skills. Some years later, I volunteered at my parish teaching ESL to adult immigrants. Having greatly enjoyed this activity, I started part time jobs at Harris County Department

of Education and McDonald’s, teaching ESL to a diverse body of adult students. These opportunities allowed me to gain considerable experience and confidence.

Let me help you start or improve your ESL or Spanish skills!

Nery is a dedicated and knowledgeable teacher who tried her hardest to adapt our class to a very diverse body of students. I was her student for 2 semesters and during that time, my conversation, grammar and pronunciation skills improved significantly. Our class was dynamic and fun, I highly recommend her services as an ESL instructor.

As an experienced ESL instructor, lessons can range depending on your needs. My experience includes teaching academic English courses of beginning and intermediate levels for various skills (listening, reading, writing, vocabulary/literacy, and grammar).

I have also tutored English privately, focusing on one-on-one instruction. In these sessions, I have worked closely with students to isolate and improve weak spots in their pronunciation, taught collocations and expressions (conversational and academic English), and concentrated on listening practice.

My graduate level certification and extensive teaching background has prepared me to teach you, regardless of your goals for improving your English!

About Naomi

I am a performer and teacher, specializing in cello and English as a Second Language. I graduated with a bachelor and master degree in music performance (cello) from Ball State University (Indiana). While a student, I had a multitude of teaching experiences ranging from music theory, music history, ear training, and English as a Second Language.

For the past three years, I have taught beginning/intermediate cello students. My teaching experiences began at a non-profit community music camp, Music for the Sake of Music, in Green Bay, Wisconsin. During this experience, I found a passion for teaching beginning students because of the fundamental need to provide a solid foundation. These early teaching experiences also inspired my teaching philosophy. Students can expect to focus on technique while simultaneously working on challenging and

exciting repertoire. Although there is an emphasis on strong fundamentals, I strive to demonstrate the fun and beneficial qualities of studying music. Music should not be a chore but rather a source of creativity and enjoyment.

I am open to teaching students of all ages and levels, although the majority of my experience is in beginning and intermediate levels. I've studied the cello for 14 years. I have experience in tutoring music theory, sight-ear (ear training), and music history. Also, I have been certified through the National College Learning Center Association, completing training that emphasizes engagement of students. Through this training I've learned how to help students learn independently and overcome challenges through trial and error. In music, these skills foster efficient practice techniques that often lead to a quickly developed technique.

During my studies, I was also a classroom instructor of ESL. I taught academic English to university students with various proficiency levels. In these classes, I taught between 2-15 students. This experince strengthened my classroom management but also taught me how to prepare lesson plans catering to individual students. I have received a graduate level certification in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and in doing so I have studied materials development, classroom assessment/creating assessments, and methodologies for teaching English as a second language. Lastly, I have tutored individuals in ESL, working closely to improve listening, speaking, and vocabulary.

As a performer, I have played in many regional orchestras throughout Indiana such as the Lafayette Symphony Orchestra, Muncie Symphony Orchestra, and Kokomo Symphony Orchestra. I also have experience performing outside of a classical setting, especially in recording. In previous years I have recorded on pop albums for independent artists and composers. My most notable experience includes recording with Tony Award winning actress and singer, Sutton Foster on her newest album Take Me to the World.

Studying music is not about achieving perfection; it is about creativity and joy and obtaining skills that transfer to numerous fields. I look forward to meeting you and helping you develop a wide variety of skills that will enrich many parts of your life.

"Tell them and they will forget , show them and they may remember, involve them and they will understand." This is the philosophy by which I plan my English language classes. I incorporate real life reading material, listening material and functional speaking role plays into my lessons.

Before starting lessons with me, I will call to discuss your specific English learning goals. Do you want to focus on Speaking Accent, Conversation, Listening, Writing, Reading, etc. I will then tailor each lesson just for you.

I also teach Business English to students and business professionals. I teach children as well.

Within this ESL lesson, we will be taking the bore out of chore. Book a lesson today and get ready to find your groove as we create and remake lyrics to popular melodies all while learning the basic elementals of the English language. These lessons are perfect for beginners!

About Cierra

Greetings Earthlings, class is in session. Ok time for our first POP QUIZ! See your questions below. (There is a right or wrong answer, but only you will know if it’s correct or not.)

Question 1.: Who are you?

Question 2.: Who or what did you want to be prior to any doubt of becoming that was brought to your awareness?

Question 3.: Does it bother you to have fun while learning? (This is not a trick question.)

Well, there you go. So, how did you do? Remember, only you can really answer these specific questions. When it comes to exploring self, which most of my lessons extends from, understanding and being honest with whom, what and where you are is the first step in opening yourself up to learning and evolving.

Learning should be fun an exciting. There’s also a sense of freedom that should come along with the power of obtaining new me

ntal tools for life. Your life.

"Melissa is a miracle worker! My mother-in-law moved to the United States 40 years ago unable to speak english and while she has done a good job at learni
ng on her own, she had significant gaps in her ability to effectively communicate. For her 68th birthday, I bought her lessons with Melissa. My mother-in-law told me I was wasting my money because she couldn't learn anything new. Well, needless to say, she can learn and with Melissa's excellent tutelage has dramatically increased her ability to speak and comprehend english. This has enabled a new level of confidence and freedom that she did not previously have and is a game changer for her. I attribute her improvement directly to Melissa's ability to understand her student's needs and personalities and craft and deliver a quality, tailored curriculum. After our first round of classes, my mother-in-law is excited to continue the lessons and has a renewed curiosity and interest in learning. Great job and thank you Melissa!!!"

The International English Language Testing System (also known as the IELTS) is recognized worldwide as the most popular English proficiency exam. Millions of people from around the globe take the IELTS every year, and unfortunately, many of them do not pass.
