I have taught English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) in Germany, Greece, and Turkey, and English as a Second Language (ESL) in California. In Germany, where I lived and worked for many years, I too had to learn a second language as a beginner to the level where I could function and work in a new society. So I teach from a student's point of view, understanding and sensitive to both the practical and emotional challenges you face.

About Laurel
As a teacher I recognize that all students have a predominant learning style, so I always work with each person as an individual, tailoring our lessons to discover and promote their innate abilities and interests. I am friendly and patient and work well with children of all ages as well as adults.

My background in English language training is extensive. I have a B.A. in English Literature, Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certification, along with ten years teaching experience in Europe and the Middle East. I also hold a M.Sc. in Biological Science.

My area of special expertise is writing, I can help anyone master the skill of expressing themselves effectively. I love grammar and can make it fun and easy to learn. I have developed curriculum and adapted existing teaching materials to fit students special needs.

Th
ese are areas of language training in which I excel:
• Grammar
• Reading Literacy (for both native speakers and ESL learners)
• Business and Vocational English
• Creative and Expository Writing
• English Conversation
• Exam Preparation
• Editing and Proofreading

I've been speaking english for many years, however I wanted to improve my speech, vocabulary and fluency in order to perform better at job interviews. Laurel helped me learn how to form coherent sentences when I talk, and now I speak with more confidence. The best part is that I finally got a job!
Laurel is a wonderful teacher, very knowledgeable; I was always looking forward to her classes.

I've taught ESL to many students, varying from people who could barely say "hello" to those who were just trying to get the past perfect continuous tense right. I love it.

About Michelle
Hi! I'm Michelle, a world traveler/teacher who's here to help bring her experience and energy to students back home in California. I've taught various subjects such as test prep, English, history, and languages to students all over the world, such as China, France, and Ecuador. I've worked with students of all ages and love getting to know them to help figure out how they best learn.

I love learning languages in my spare time and practicing when I can. When I'm not looking a bit silly doing that, I'm usually reading, at a baseball game, hiking, or hanging out with friends. I keep active, making sure to run or climb a mountain when I can. However, it's equally as strong as my love for foods of all kinds.

I really look forward to getting to work with you and helping you with whatever I can!

I lived in Madrid for a year teaching English to students between 6-16 years old. TEFL certified. Tambien hablo espanol. My specialty goes beyond "textbook" English. I prefer to utilize spoken colloquial English to get you sounding more like a native. If you desire to learn slang or business vocabulary i am very flexible in working to accommodate your needs. See you soon!

About Evan
Hello there! My name is Evan and I am a 24 year old guy whose passions include learning and meeting new people. I graduated UNCC in 2017 and i have spent a year traveling and teaching English around the whole world. I have Fulbright scholar experience as well as Cambridge exam preparation for English fluency.

I am an enthusiastic teacher and love to help my students attain their goal and feel comfortable speaking English. I am a young man, but an old soul. That is the best of both worlds, I am familiar with the new slang and jargon as well as the older and antiquated words that are underappreciated.

My mission is to help you reach your goal and get you speaking like a native English teacher in a relaxed and fun environment. Lets get started soon! :)

I am a Certified Interpreter in five languages with the US Defense Language Institute Monterrey, California.

English is my third language but I didn’t stop here. I taught my mother and so many others tips on how to learn this language faster.
If you speak a Romantic language, even better; I’ll find “anchors” to help you connect the dots and allow you to find English words faster.
If your native language is not among the Romantic ones, don’t dispair (though my assumption is that you stopped reading by now). Mentors are critical, and I’ll teach you ways to find balance, consistency, and discipline in learning English as a Second Language.

About Isabela
I'm an enthusiastic learner even after 19 years of formal education (two Masters, one Bachelor) earned on two continents continued by US military education in various forms, and formally tested student who needed to document skills that were not formally captured on paper (like the foreign languages I know).

I love interacting with people and pass on my knowledge from five visited continents, instill love for learning and continuous curiosity for any subject out there. Nothing is impossible when you set your mind to it. Failing once doesn't mean that you'll never win (proof in my athletic years and life ever since); determination, hard work, self-motivation and a good supporting system can bring to reality even the most insignificant dreams that we believe may not come true, and especially those in which we passionately trust.

I be
lieve in breaking down a goal into objectives, assigning tasks to each one of them, and then sticking to achieve them.

I'm a Certified Instructor with the Department of Homeland Security. My hobbies include practicing foreign languages by speaking them, learning about cultures and slangs, etymology, watching foreign movies, traveling internationally, taking photos, reading (a lot), carefully planning with room for error and impulsive decisions (to take the boredom out of things), meeting with life long friends, drawing, painting, and spending time outdoors for inspiration.

I'm elated at the opportunity of brainstorming with you and giving you tools to be an independent learner.
