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 was a good teacher to our son, he was patient and kind. Our son learned a lot from him, we hope in the future to use him again, if the opportunity arises. Thanks Keith!

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.

For 12 years, I have helped students improve their English skills. With me, they advance quickly while having fun.

I am an expert at supporting shy students who are afraid of making mistakes, or get very nervous in conversations.

Alfiya is an absolutely amazing teacher!!! Though I have had only a handful of lessons, I have learned so much about the Russian language. Her dedication and high expectation of me as a student encourages me to apply myself 110% and, as a result, my comprehension and ability to speak Russian grows with each lesson. So excited to have Alfiya as my teacher!!!

Español
Mis clases son totalmente interactivas y entretenidas. Enseño a partir de oraciones y frases simples que son útiles para tu vida personal y profesional. Cada lección es personalizada conforme a tus necesidades. Tengo ya más de 10 años enseñando a imigrantes de Latinoamerica, Europa, y Asia, tanto en línea como en persona. No lo pienses, ¡vamos a empezar!

English
My lessons are very interactive. I teach using sentences and phrases that relate to your personal or professional needs. We start with a simple conversation that builds up as much as it is comfortable for you. The goal is that you can apply the material immediately. During each session, we go from conversation to reading and writing (just like when you learned your first language).

I have been teaching ESL to children (3-10 yo), teenagers, and adult immigrants for over 10 years. Let's get started!

About Nayeli

Learn Spanish with a native speaker! My lessons are engaging and useful (watch my videos). A lesson would typically start with the oral practice of a simple phrase. First, we learn the vocabulary, think about practical uses, practice reading; and finally, writing. All classes are adapted to your go

She gives you tools to practice in between lessons, and this makes practicing manageable and fun. I would highly recommend Nayeli as a tutor to anyone who is interested in learning Spanish!

Nayeli is wonderful and friendly and does an amazing job teaching our 6 year old son. We started in person and now do online. Our goal is to have our son fluent in Spanish and Nayeli is helping us work toward that with fun lessons that he enjoys. We highly recommend her.

"Marie to me is by far the best teacher on earth, better yet the best person I have ever met in my life. She was also my teacher in high school and I couldn't ask for a better human being to teach me about life, school and caring for others. she was always there for me even when I didn't want her to be. I guess you can say she was a second mother. She is kind, caring, understanding, and very passionate to teach her students. I promise you, having Marie as your teacher she will show you love, patience, and make sure if you have to, stay after school to learn and understand whatever subject that you are having problems with. I wouldn't say this if I didn't mean it, having Marie as your kids teacher will be the best thing for them. just make sure they don't get too close because she is that easily lovable and a great teacher."

The Complete List of English Idioms, Proverbs, & Expressions

Although English idioms don't make sense at first, these unique expressions (together with proverbs) add substance and humor to our conversations. The Oxford Dictionary defines the word "idiom" as a: "group of words established by usage as having a meaning not deducible from those of the individual words (e.g. over the moon, see the light)." This means that English idioms should not be taken literally, because their meaning is metaphorical. You don't really wish someone would “break a …
