Certified ESL Teacher for All Ages/Levels!
I currently teach ESL at a college and I have taught ESL in a public elementary school. I have my master's degree in ESL (or ESOL) with a teacher certification specific to ESL.

About Annie
I graduated from Boston College with a B.A. in Music and Communication in 2013. Then I earned M.S. in educational studies: ESOL at Johns Hopkins while working full time as a public school teacher in Baltimore. At Highlandtown Elementary Middle School, I was the Strings Program Director with Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's OrchKids. I recently graduated from Harvard University with a degree in Education Policy and Management.

At Boston College, I served as the concertmaster for the symphonic orchestra, tutored music theory and violin, and coached chamber ensemble groups. I also co-founded a music outreach organization where BC students provided music education for a local elementary school without a viable music curriculum.
I absolutely love working with children in every aspect, especially music. I've been teaching privately for about
7 years now and my students have become accomplished violinists! I focus on making violin fun and awarding to allow children to appreciate music and to challenge themselves to a higher rigor. I individualize and differentiate all of my lessons to ensure effectiveness.

As someone who has successfully learned English, I can guide you through your learning process to take your English to the next level. Everyone has different points to work on such as speaking, accent reduction, reading and writing. I will identify your sticking points and help you overcome your challenges with the English language.

About Taro
Hi. I'm a native Japanese speaker from Kobe. I was born and raised there and speak both standard Japanese and Kobe dialect. I'm an expert at bringing one's overall language level from the beginner to intermediate. I will assist you more with English first if you're a beginner and gradually transition to using only Japanese as you get closer to an intermediate level.

I've been teaching English for 13 years and my students have gone on to develop travel abroad, participate in and win different competitions and contests, and build their careers. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to communicate in it in everyday life and as time goes on you'll be able to make new friends and study and work in it. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Aliaksandra
Hi, there! My name is Aliaksandra and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2001 and have loved helping my students communicate in the language they want, make new foreign friends, and travel and study abroad. I went to Minsk State Linguistic University (Republic of Belarus) and earned a Master degree in Philological Sciences in 2003. I'm a responsible person always ready to help and my teaching style is students’ needs oriented, cooperative, and activity-approached. My motto is Practice makes perfect. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

My daughter Kira, who is 10 now, has been taking French lessons for almost two years with Alessandra. I can’t be happier with her progress! And I certainly can’t be happier with Aleksandra, who is not only a professor and can teach adults and teachers, but also has an amazing way with children!
My daughter loves her and always is looking forward to the next class, responsiby does her homework and able to teach me a few things :)
But what I truly appreciate as a parent as well, is that she is never late and always makes the day and time that has been arranged, which is very important with everyone’s busy schedules.
I would highly recommend Aleksandra for teaching children and adults!
My best friend is French, and I had Aleksandra over when my friend was visiting, my friend was impressed with her fluency of the language.

I've been an instructor of language for over 25 years. My goals is to help you gain an appreciation for the English language, its complexities, and how to properly pronounce and spell various words in the language.

About Naomi
I was originally born in Cincinnati, Ohio in a large family (youngest of nine kids), and we all attended Catholic schools... this is where I started learning Spanish. I have studied it (and English Literature) for many years, then eventually won a scholarship to study/travel in Mexico for six months. I returned from Mexico fluent, graduated from college with honors in language and Humanities, then decided to go live in Washington, DC to use that language. I got into corporate training, working 10 years at Fannie Mae as I traveled to 38 of the 50 states to help them train banks on their financial systems. I later began working in healthcare, and got certified as an interpreter AND as an Instructional Designer. I have designed educational programs ever since at hospitals, schools, educational centers, retail organizations, and with hig
her education (now at GWU). My hobbies include speaking Spanish, swimming, listening to jazz, playing with my daughter and my beagle.

If you are looking for a Spanish teacher look no further! Naomi is a very skilled and phenomenal teacher. I have taken her class for the last 10 months and I truly can see the progress I have made with her teaching style. She not only has set lessons from the book, but she will bring real-world examples such as food, newspapers, and music! I recently traveled to the Dominican Republic and I was amazed at how easily I was able to hold a conversation. The people there let me know that my Spanish was very good. It was definitely a compliment for me. I believe that a student is only as good as their teacher. Naomi is the right teacher!

Naomi really takes the time to go over with you the culture and language of the people. She setup a lesson plan for me and established goals. I love her teaching style and I feel like I'm taking the time to learn again. If you're looking for a teacher who knows her stuff she is it!

I have been teaching English as a foreign language (EFL) in China for more than 8 years and as a second language in the U.S. for one semester. In my ESL class, I encourage students to be brave and to appreciate their accent and their multiple cultural backgrounds.

Speaking English with an accent is bravery. That's part of your identity. Having multiple cultural backgrounds means you are unique and you can bring that uniqueness in your writing and discussion. And think about that, you can speak language(s) other than English, you are very special!

Hence, in my class, I am very willing to help students build their confidence and strengths in their English learning. I am not a native English speaker and my English is not perfect, but I see myself as a multi-competent teacher. Over the years of language teaching experience as a teacher and learning experience (I can speak five languages) as a multi-linguistic learner, I believe I can help you achieve your goal under our mutual ...

About Guifang
I have more than eight years of language teaching experience. I have learned five languages over the years in China and overseas. I started tutoring Chinese students (age 8-16) English and Chinese when I was 19 and I founded my first summer camp in China when I was 20. Students who had registered for my summer camp increased from 25 in 2010 to 86 in 2016. I've gained very valuable skills and perspectives in teaching, not just as a teacher, but also as a student--students are my teachers too--I've learned there are always places that I can improve and better help them learn languages. Students' "needs" and "wants" are prioritized. It helps students achieve their goals while combined with students' "lacks" in lesson planning. Students should get involved in the lesson planning process.

Interest is the best teacher. When I taught non-nati
ve Chinese speakers (in China, South Korea and the U.S) Chinese, it seemed it stimulated their curiosity and interest to learn Chinese when cultural elements were introduced--such as characters' origin and visualization, historical contexts and cultural traditions. I hope that approach can also bring you an enjoyable experience learning a new language!

To help you be able to use Chinese, our language learning is mainly through interactive and communicative approaches. Talk! Talk! Talk! Please don't be shy. It's okay to make mistakes. Learning from mistakes is also a very effective way to learn a new language. We can make more contextualized dialogues based on whatever textbook you are using now. Or we can produce functional conversation based on everyday topics that you are interested. Lesson plans are customized and they can be flexible.

Ready to get on the boat and sail on the sea of Chinese? :)

I have been teaching ESL students for the last 10 years. I know the ESL students weak points in English. Teaching different nationalities gave me more experience to see where the problem is with I know how to start and how to make them like the language I teach.

About Thais
I have been teaching different languages and different students from various countries . I also lived in lots of countries and know how to handle different cultures.
Variety of ages made my teaching a blessing.
I taught ESL and my students with different backgrounds were inspired by the way I taught them. Currently I’m teaching French and German to kids and adults at the same time. I have been teaching the same kids for the last 3 years they became advanced students and they can communicate in the foreign language now.

Yes, English can be fun! My ESL teaching method is adaptable to fit the student's needs, since I believe everyone has a different learning style and my lesson plans reflect that style. I have been teaching ESL for over 15 years - both in college and in high school. In addition, I have taught English abroad and I am fluent in a variety of languages.
I want my students to reach their full potential in learning English, but also to enjoy themselves. I want to help you build a solid foundation in the area of communication that suit your requirements - speaking, reading, or writing,(or a combination of all three). Send me an email !

About Ghida
I have been a professional educator for over 30 years, having just retired from 16 years public school teaching. I graduated from Edinburgh University, Scotland with a degree in Modern Languages, & from Catholic University of America with a PhD in Comparative Literature.
Teaching is my one great passion - I want to share my love of languages and literature with learners of all ages. I have taught elementary school children, high school students, college students and adults - including Franciscan brothers in a monastery!
My other interests include music, reading, gardening and travel. This year I hope to visit Portugal for the first time, and to also learn how to draw and do watercolors.
I am active in our local community including volunteering and mentoring in various organizations .
