Hello! If you want to travel to America, you have to deal with Americans, you have to speak English. What makes me a great English teacher? Many things. But lets start with the basics. I have no regional accent. What that means is no American person can ever hear me speak English and determine where I am from. You want to learn from an American English Language coach that has no accent. People from the south, New York City, Minnesota and other regions of the country can have very pronounced accents.

My goal as a teacher is for people to not know that you are a non native English speaker. This means that you will have learned how to create all of the sounds that the English language produces.


You are just as smart and capable as they are. I have high expectations of your potential as an English speaker. You should also have high expectations of yourself. I have high expectations of myself as a teacher. I am ...

About Ronald

Hello. What's up? How are you doing? Hi. Hey. What's going on? Those are all various American English greetings. My name is Ronald. My nickname is Ronnie, Ron or Renaldo for my Spanish speaking students :) . I was born in Washington DC. The capitol of the United States. That means I have a neutral American accent. You want your English teacher to have a neutral American accent.


Because people without accents are more easily understood than people with accents. I am a lifelong student of languages. I taught myself fluent Spanish using a cell phone application. I am currently using that same app to become fluent in Egyptian Arabic. It will probably take me 2 years to become fluent in Egyptian Arabic. How did I become fluent in Spanish and soon to be Arabic?

The first step in learning any language is list

ening. If you cannot hear the sounds being made then you will never be able to speak any language. So my primary tool is tuning your ear to American English. I will give you homework assignments that require you to listen to certain sounds and words.

We will also always focus on subjects that YOU are interested in talking about. History, politics, science, current affairs, geography, food, speeches, journalism, etc. My class is great for anyone interested in working with English speakers. aupairs, pilots, doctors, nurses, politicians, students and attorneys can all benefit from my masterful ability to teach people how to understand and communicate in American English!

What are you waiting for? Let's start today!

Lowell, MA 01852

Bgcheck Background Checked

Private ESL Teacher

My name is Phoebe and I tutor Spanish and ESOL. I have experience as a Spanish teacher, ESOL teacher, ESL classroom tutor, and most importantly as a student!

My love of teaching comes from my experience as a student. I spent a semester abroad in Costa Rica, which not only helped me gain fluency in Spanish, but taught me what it feels like to be a language learner. I cannot think of anything that would have made me a better Spanish or ESOL teacher than being immersed myself in a new language and culture.

Once I finished my B.A. in Spanish, I came to Texas and taught it for a while before returning to graduate school to study teaching ESOL. Once there, I had the opportunity to student teach at both the high school and elementary school levels, which earned me a K-12 TESOL certification.

Since then, I have worked as a teacher and a tutor through various means. I have provided both classroom tutoring and private tutoring.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Xiomara R.

Bgcheck Background Checked

Private ESL Teacher

When English is not your first language, you want to make sure your written and spoken skills surpass those of even native speakers. I would like to help students starting their journey into the English speaking world.

About Xiomara

I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy, English is my second language, and I love to dance.

I'm not great at "selling" myself as to why you should choose me to be your instructor. I struggled while in school, but I managed to get through. Now, when I educate patients, colleagues, or even friends, I have found ways to make tough subjects easy to understand. We sometimes get caught up in "sounding smart" and don't know if the person receiving the information is understanding. If you are not able to understand a topic in easier layman's terms, no matter how well you memorize it, it won't stick for long.

I hope to be able to assist students who may be struggling with ESL and anatomy find effective studying strategies to grasp and understand the material presented.
