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.

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.

Esther is a great teacher and I highly recommend her, especially to those who want to improve their fluency and to those (like me) who are just too afraid to start speaking Spanish. Lessons with her are always fun and interesting, and she always knows how to explain everything in a simple and understandable way!

Seiko-San was very cooperative and encouraging during my first online lesson. I believe it was her first time teaching online and she did well. I am really happy today with my experience, she gave me some nice compliments. I look forward to the next lesson.

Seiko walks with me every lesson through the "Japanese for busy people" book and I like how she asks me to go through exercises in japanese so I can get used to listening. We also spend time enriching vocabulary.

"Marie is an effective, patient, and kind teacher. I had been studying Arabic for years with different teachers and had not seen much improvement. I had gotten very comfortable with the alphabet, but that was all my teachers seemed to focus on. When I started working with Marie, however, I very quickly made significant progress. She helped me build a foundation of vocabulary that I actually cared to learn so the grammar could flow more easily. I would highly recommend Marie to anyone wanting to learn Arabic (or French for that matter!)."

10 Important Differences Between Spanish & Portuguese

The 2016 Summer Olympics were held in Rio de Janerio, Brazil. For language-learners everywhere, it was and still is a great time to explore Portuguese, their official language! And if you're already learning Spanish, you're at an advantage. There are a lot of similarities between the two languages -- in fact, there's even a name for speaking a mixture of the languages to help speakers of different backgrounds communicate (Portuñal or Portunhol, in Spanish and Portuguese, respectively). …
