Melissa eres la mejor profesora; es una experiencia facil y divertida de aprender ingles. GRACIAS aprendi mucho y me siento en otro nivel, mi pronunciacion y comprension del idioma ahora es mucho mas facil para comunicarme, entender y hablar ingles en los estados unidos. SUPER RECOMENDADAAAAA!!!

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 learning 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!!!
Kari Bardowell
Melissa has a lovely calming personality. She made us feel completely at ease while learning a foreign language. She was prepared and tailored the lesson for our specific goals and level.

She displayed an expert knowledge of the language, but was still able to teach beginners. Plus we could tell she really loved Portuguese.

The online format was great. Cant wait for the next lesson.

I help intermediate and advanced English speakers go from fluent to nearly native.

I am a writer, educator, curriculum developer, and English coach who has over 8 years of teaching experience. Therefore, I understand the importance of being an effective and efficient communicator.

I help my students reach their highest potential by focusing on their individual needs. For example, many students are concerned with sounding as natural and fluent as possible. I can help with that.

There are also students who want to learn specialized vocabulary or idioms. I can help get you up to speed with that as well.

Often times there comes a point when an advanced speaker wants to refine their skills in order to pursue business or career opportunities; or reach a lifelong personal goal. My goal is to help my students go from advanced to nearly native. My approach is based on the individual.

About Jennifer

Words create worlds and that is why communication is so important. After all, it's how we relate to one another, and it’s how we accomplish our goals. I bring forth my gifts into the world with my work as a writer, English language coach, curriculum developer, and reading tutor. I like to incorpo

I base your lessons on your interests and needs - so they are customized to keep you interested. In the field of Education, this is called "engagement", meaning your mind and emotions have a *reason* to remember the English you learn from me!

But why believe what I say? I want you to pay me, right?! So, I'll let one of my students speak for herself:

Here's a fun review from KJ: "Orville is a great teacher! I have enjoyed both his private and group classes. And trust me, in almost 8 years of study, I have had a LOT of teachers. He’s extremely personable and has excellent tips for remembering new words and phrases!" - K.J.

To get results like the ones above (fun lessons and excellent tips!), contact me now to begin!

Orville is the perfect combination of fun and learning! I am thoroughly enjoying the online classes--I've taken private and small group and am looking forward to in-person classes again as well. Orville is a linguist and really understands how to teach Spanish in a way that does not intimidate but, rather, reinforces learning for practical use. I always feel like I'm getting the best experience with Orville. Highly recommend!!
Bea
I have had the honor of receiving Spanish lessons from Orville for the past year. I am Hispanic, have taking college courses, and even spent some time in Mexico.. but Spanish never seemed to stick. It wasn't until I started taking classes with Orville that I started feeling like I can actually speak Spanish! I have a long way to go, but I feel like I'm on the right course with Orville. His classes consist of literature, You Tube videos, movies etc. for discussion and then afterwards we converse! Lots of conversation... and laughter and fun and learning. Enjoy your Spanish journey with Orville... :)

"Lori is a great teacher because she isn’t only a grammar and speech instructor, she is also an awesome friend. I am a middle schooler who came to USA with a very weak English knowledge, and Lori was the one who helped me fit into the brand new community while teaching me new language. Together we talked about school, different situations that could happen in public and played American card games. she also helped me with homework and projects. We even studied for Spelling Bee! (I had no idea what it was until she told me 😄) When my study time was over and I had finally exited her program, she decided to make an online book club. It really helped me because I got a chance to learn English while reading books. I liked that we got to vote on the books ourselves and the book discussions helped me improve my English speech. I really recommend Lori as a teacher because she really helped me fit into the community and I am sure she will help you as well."

For each of them Roman finds themes interesting to talk about and write about. Grammar and other boring stuff are taken needed care of, but main emphasis of lessons are on free talk."

Instead of sitting in a class room the lessons were spent at different places in the city and Anna prepared interesting themes for every lesson that let my son both practice speaking a lot as well as hear many interesting stories of NYC. In addition to being a great teacher Anna is also an excellent guide."

ESL Learners: Are You Making These 21 Common Mistakes?

There are certainly some tricky words in the English language! And sometimes, people who have learned English as a second language mix up these words. Want to avoid making the same mistakes? Here are the words ESL learners misuse the most. Them, Those, and These "Them" is a pronoun that stands in the place of a plural noun. It is commonly used as the subject of a sentence, as in: Did you see them? or Have you seen the scissors? I used them to cut the labels off my T-shirts; now I can’t fin …
