Let's have fun and enjoy English language conversation. We will explore idioms and nuances of American and British English -- slang, humor, formal, writing, and any use of English that is relevant for you.

About Kristin
Hello!

I received a Bachelor's in Music Education and Performance from Drake University in Flute and Piano. Currently pursuing a Master's in Music Therapy.

At Drake, I received a musical scholarship covering 80% of my tuition costs.
I was also honored to sit as Principal Flute in both the Drake Symphony Orchestra and the Drake Wind Symphony, the top performing groups at the University.

I started to play the flute and piano in second grade, and
my love and passion for music have only grown and matured since then.

I enjoy sharing what I've learned, and learning from my students as well.

I am excited and thrilled by the opportunity to work with you!

My first piano lesson turned out to be so much more than I could have ever expected. My teacher, Kristin is so engaged in the lesson and so very well prepared. We covered so much in such a short time. She made every minute both fun and informative while providing a very friendly environment in her studio. I feel very fortunate to have found such a really competent music teacher.

Aurora, CO

View Full Profile

I have been teaching English as a second language for for over 10 years and have taught over 60 students.

My love for and experience with learning new languages provides me with a unique insight into teaching English to students of all ages. I can utilize my Spanish or Mandarin to help you through beginning lessons if you're not yet confident in your English skills.

About Mark
Hey everybody! Hola and Ni Hao. My name is Mark and I'm a Language Tutor, Yoga Instructor & Organic Farmer with an International MBA and minors in both Spanish and Mandarin. With over 20 years of foreign language study, and 10 years teaching foreign languages to others, I know exactly what works and what doesn't when it comes to learning a new language.

I recently moved to Aurora, CO in order to be closer to my family since I have spent the past 12 years traveling the world.

I am a certified K-12 substitute teacher in the state of Colorado, and will be teaching a Spanish immersion class for 3 months starting in January. I have the flexibility to work with you around your schedule and will create a customized lesson plan that fits your needs and unique learning methods.

My main requirement of you as a student is to be committ
ed and dedicated to learning the language we are studying and to work on the homework assignments I provide.

Hope to talk to you soon!

Mark

My son was struggling in his second year of high school honors Mandarin. He had immediate improvement in his grade and confidence level once Mark began tutoring him. Mark is very reliable, flexible with scheduling, personable, and very prompt in responding to email. I highly recommend him.

Hello! I hope I can help you in your journey to learn and improve in English. I love working with all ages and skills levels, so please let me know if I can help you!

About Kevin
I have been a teacher for several years in subjects ranging from Music to English. My most recent experience has been with ESL students, which I find to be most fulfilling. I earned a 94th percentile GRE Verbal score and have coached several students in test prep and general writing. As a trained singer, dialects and accents are areas with which I have extensive experience. The mechanics of phonation and speech have been a theme throughout my career and I have developed an acute sensitivity to the intricacies of diction in various languages.

I hope I can be of service to you!

On a personal note, I enjoy long-distance bike rides, classical music (2,500 vinyl LPs in the collection), personal essay writing, movies, and cooking. I love learning and spend almost all of my free time learning about something.

Need to learn English? Let me help you and your family master reading, writing and speaking the English language. My course is easy and enjoyable. I want all of my students to speak English articulately. I have been teaching and working with children for over 20 years. My success rate is very impressive. Most of my children enter Kindergarten, reading English on a forth grade reading level. I love working with families and individuals.
Let's talk about getting you fluent!

About Ramona
I'm here to help you. Learning should be enjoyable for children as well as adults. I plan on using my experience and my love for teaching to equip my students with the skills needed to read, write, spell, and speak American English. My program is challenging yet enjoyable. I believe that when taught from the heart, anyone can speak English. I will not give up or let go of my students until they understand and master the English language.

Ramona G was my daughter's amazing teacher. As an instructor she is thorough, giving great attention to detail yet at the same time she is succinct. She has the ability to teach a large class and give each student the personal attention they need. Combine that with her patience, kindness, wit and wisdom along with personal interest in ensuring her students are successful, gives you the best teacher you could possibly have.

The words awesome and amazing do not adequately describe the professional and positive effect the educational experience our children received from Ms. Ramona G. She has exceptional teaching skills and her love for children reaching their full potential is extraordinary.

Communicate effectively after valuable lessons on pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, email etiquette, and more. We have conversations and exercises that focus on your goals.

About Mary
English language teacher with more than 10 years of experience. I have taught all levels, from beginners who don't speak any English, to advanced lessons within businesses where my clients already understood English but wanted to improve pronunciation, grammar, and email etiquette. I am passionate about teaching and my students express how much I help them with valuable feedback and quality lessons.

I attended Seton Hall University for Education and Spanish. I attended Rutgers to study teaching English as a Second Language. I am certified in New Jersey.

In our first lesson I like to see what level students are, ask what their goals are, and begin lessons that target those goals. I love to help my students accomplish their goals and enjoy the process!

ESL lessons with me is going to be unique because I know how it feels like to be as an ESL student. I know how to make it fun and it is more about understanding the weakness of a student.

About Nicole
I am a first year college student, majoring in Computer Science and I finished high school with a 3.8 GPA. I love teaching, especially to children and people who actually want to learn. I will try to make everything fun and interesting. I have been in the kids' ministry for three years and I am positive I will do my best for people to learn new things.

Other than teaching and talking to people, I am an athlete since I was a little kid and it helped me with my communication skills. I am the currently president of the volleyball club at Central Piedmont Community College and I am also currently in the Opportunity Scholarship which my first two years are free.

I also sing and play guitar and drums. I have been playing instruments and performing since I was in fourth grade and I love it. I used to also tutor people on how to play guitar an
d I am planning to continue it as soon as my schedule works out.
