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.

I have studied all aspects of language, including learning a second language, literature, and even linguistics. Specifically, though, I am interested in second language pedagogy, which has allowed me to learn and experience what works best for you. Although I have the most experience teaching very high-level speakers, I am prepared to work with all ages and all proficiency levels!

I earned my MA in teaching English as a second language and have worked with everyone from nearly fluent children to adult beginners.

I am prepared to cater my lessons to suit whatever your needs may be! I am experienced in online and on the ground teaching at the university level and have worked with everyone from children learning phonics and the alphabet to adults learning academic English and research skills for PhDs.

I myself have studied a number of languages, and I bring this knowledge to each lesson in order to address specific challenges a student might have.

I look forward to starting a language learning journey with you!

IF A TIME IS NOT LISTED AS AVAILABLE, PLEASE SEND ME A MESSAGE. I CAN PROBABLY ACCOMMODATE YOU :)

She is my favorite English teacher, I learn a lot of English grammar from her. She recommends some English movies, which are good for learning English listening!
Alice
Sara is very nice! She has a lot of patience to help us during the class and also after the class. (I like her so much because she is very beautiful and funny!!! )
Olivia
I took professor Sara's ESL writing class in SCAD in 2020 and got a great improvement. Each lesson of Sara is carefully prepared. Although my class is at 8 am in the morning, she looks energetic every day. This improves my motivation for learning. In addition, she will carefully review every assignment I handed in and make suggestions for revision. The ten-week course I spent with her was intense and interesting. If you are looking for a professor who can help you improve your English skills, I will definitely recommend Professor Sara!

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.

Orville makes learning Spanish a fun experience. An engaging teacher, he combines his love of teaching with humor and insights on the culture. I’m enjoying both studying a new language and working with Orville - it’s like learning with s good friend.

Orville is a wonderful teacher and brings the language alive for you as you learn together over zoom. He explains so much of why things are said a certain way, things that you just can't get from a language app. It's the best hour of the week! Highly recommend him for all levels.

Do you remember your days of foreign language class in school? I do, and it was awful! We spent hour upon hour memorizing vocabulary and grammar. We copied, translated, conjugated, and labelled. And yet, at the end of each year I know exactly what I started with - nothing!

Since then, I've been able to learn two other languages by myself - Spanish and Portuguese. I didn't study these languages in school, or ever step foot inside an foreign-language classroom. Instead, I created my own method of learning that sees language for what it really is - a way to communicate. In my classes, we will focus on communication, as it is the single most important skill you can develop. I will teach you grammar, and I will teach you conjugation. I'll even expect you to learn new vocabulary. But the center of our learning will always be communication. "How can I use this to communicate with others?" Everything we learn will be centered around that question.

Naturally, each class will be designed with

"Hello,
When I moved from Russia to US in 2011, my English was at beginner’s level and I desperately needed to start speaking this language as soon as possible: especially for my job but also for my every day life.
I tried to take some ESL classes at local colleges and also study with a tutor but it did not work very well. Instead I became more afraid of making mistakes or saying something not correctly. I was frustrated and started to think that I am just not made for learning new languages.
I heard about Roman from my colleague who did intensive French language program designed and taught by mr. Nam. So he told me that Roman also teaches ESL. I decided to give it a try.
After three months of classes with Roman my English improved so much! From the beginning of classes I started to feel so motivated and everything was explained in really simple way. I don’t really understand how Roman was doing this but every class and even every homework was so interesting and so fun to do. I loved to hear myself speak English better and better. I started to use my english in any situation and I felt so confident.
Now, after four years living in US my English is much better but i know that the most important step in my progress was the program I did with Roman and I am very thankful for all his help."

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?

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 …
