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.

Education is one of the most valuable things you can acquire. Knowledge stays with you wherever you go and you can use it in the less unexpected situation.

I was born and raise on Peru, South America. Spanish is my native language.
I also hold a Bachelor's on Biological Science from Roosevelt University with a minor in Chemistry. I have take classes like Molecular Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, Biochemistry, Neuroscience. Also General and Organic Chemistry. General Physics and Math up to Calculus. I offer tutoring on Biology, General Chemistry and Math.

Being bilingual have been a great advantage for me, especially at work. That's why I offer Spanish lessons and tutoring, from beginning to advance levels.

It's amazing how our brain can absorb information in different ways. We can be learning something unintentionally. So whichever your circumstances are we should be open to learn or improve our skills every day. Remember, the process of learning never ends.

Russian language is the fifth most widely spoken languages in the world. It’s a very beautiful and rich language.
Russian literature counts a huge number of great works (Dostoevsky, Chekhov, Tolstoy, Turgenev). Speaking Russian you will be able to read them in original.
If you want to learn a second language – it should become your new habit, possibly for the rest of your life. Of course, it does not mean that you’ll only be able to speak Russian after a few years, no. Most probably, after a few dedicated months you’ll be able to hold a simple conversation and understand a lot of what you hear.
I am a native Russian speaker. I am musician . I'll be happy to learn Russian with you.

Latin has given me the basic understanding of how languages work that has enabled me to learn other languages as diverse as Hebrew, Russian, and Yiddish. I can connect Latin grammatical concepts and root words to familiar ideas to accelerate your learning and strengthen your skills.

Very helpful in assisting a distance learner.
Michelle I.
Azalea not only keeps conversation flowing, but recognizes where you can use more practice! In our lesson she helped me improve my listening skills and made it feel like we were working together. Practicing another language can be very intimidating but Azalea has a very comforting presence that makes it feel safe to make an error, and subsequently rewarding when a mistake is corrected. Not only did I gain a lot from my one hour session, but she provided me with extra skill-enhancing links that I can reference even after time is up!

My first session with Azalia was great. She shows great enthusiam and has many great ideas for those of us new to Espanol.

"Phillippe was a wonderful, patient instructor who clearly cares about his students and is dedicated to their learning. He found ways to make learning fun, recommending books articles, websites, tv shows, and movies that would help me learn but also that he knew I would find interesting. Phillippe was flexible and responsive if something wasn’t working and willing to try lots of different techniques to make concepts stick. On top of being naturally capable, Phillippe was just a lovely person to chat and practice speaking with; his interest in the world around him ensured our conversations and classes were never dull. I achieved my language goals after a few months of study with him, and he made the process a pleasure. I would highly recommend him to anyone, and consider myself lucky to have had him as a teacher."

"Ana was incredibly helpful I would definitely recommend her. When working with Ana I was taking upper division college Spanish literature classes. She helped me go through my essays and correct my grammar, structure and overall delivery sentence by sentence so that I could more clearly articulate myself and also learn through the corrections. In addition, when I asked for review on certain grammar areas she came up with amazing and very helpful review sheets and practice problems that correlated to issues she saw in my writing. She was always very kind and flexible and helped me improve my Spanish in many ways."

Bonne Fête des Mères! French Vocabulary for Mother's Day

Here in the states, we celebrate Mother's Day on the second Sunday in May (psst that's May 10 this year!), but did you know that in France Mother's Day, known as la fête des mères, is celebrated either the last Sunday of May or the first Sunday in June? Despite the difference in timing, the French celebrate Mother's Day in many of the same ways we do, but with a few uniquely French touches. First things first, if you want to celebrate this holiday as the French do, you'll need to know a bi …
