I've been teaching English since 2002 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!

I would highly, highly recommend lessons with Aliaksandra! She really cares about her students' learning, tailors the lessons to individual learning needs, has a lot of interesting and helpful materials, and is incredibly knowledgeable about Russian and languages in general. Moreover, I was really nervous about speaking Russian again in 12 years and she made me feel incredibly comfortable doing so.

Mojy is BEST INSTRUCTOR EVER, very knowledgeable and passionate about the Persian Languages and teaching. She is very positive and wouldn't let you go to the next step before she makes sure you have learned what you need with fun and enthusiasm. She is very educated and learned about both Persian language and culture. She has a great understanding of the students' needs. Well, She is very pushy, but that is what we need to pass DLPT . I would not have GOTTEN 3/3+ if I would not have had Mojy for my teacher. Go Mojy! ;)

Mojy is by far the most qualified and talented language instructor I have ever had. After a week of class it was clear that she was an instructor that was on a completely different level than my instructors in the past. While under her instruction i vastly improved in every facet of my language, both in skill and in confidence. Her class room provides a relaxed but highly focused environment, and she genuinely cares about her student's success. If you give her your attention and effort then you will not be disappointment with the results.

After seven years' experience in Farsi I hit a proficiency plateau, but Mojy's customized and attentive instruction got my scores up to an ILR Level 3 in reading and 2+ in listening- my best scores ever! I can't recommend her highly enough. She knows what material works and how to explain complex grammatical concepts effectively. Best teacher ever!

Over the years I have taught English to students of all races, nationalities and ethnicities. Additionally, living in New York, an extremely diverse city, has necessitated great flexibility on my part. I teach reading, writing, grammar, spelling, and proper pronunciation, but because I work with so many "non-native speakers", I have learned to be very patient and methodical in my approach, customizing the lesson to each student and breaking the steps down as much as is necessary. I have also become quite familiar with many of the handicaps associated with specific ethnic groups when trying to learn English. Overall, as an English teacher I welcome the additional challenge and I always look forward to the opportunity for cultural exchange as well.

About Anne-Marie
Hi, I'm Anne-Marie and I love to teach! I have been teaching for over 25 years and whether the subject is English, Music, College Prep or Italian, I love helping students reach their goals. I work hard to leave my students enlightened, encouraged and empowered. I have high standards and I really like to challenge students to achieve their full potential, but I also try to make the process interesting, engaging and fun. I'm patient, easygoing and I enjoy working with students of all ages and backgrounds. I always strive to get to know my students (and their needs) very well. Then I customize lessons according to need, aptitude and goals. One of the best parts of teaching for me is meeting and connecting with new people, and making a difference in their lives, so I really look forward to meeting and working with you!

Learning another language is hard! I believe best results are achieved by providing lots of encouragement, and by creating a welcoming environment in which to learn. I a Masters graduate drawing on several years experience of teaching at all levels to help you learn. I will spend time to get to understand your goals and will tailor lessons to reach them. All ages and levels welcome. I look forward to meeting you!

About William
I have been tutoring since 2014 when I worked in Spanish elementary school. Prior to that, I graduated from Exeter Univeristy with a Master's in Social and Political Philosophy and a Bachelor's degree in Politics from the University of Leicester. I also was employed by the prestigous tutoring service Titanium Tutors in London.

I teach Philosophy, Political Sciences, and History up to advanced level having covered these subjects extensivley over my college career. I can teach Spanish up to intermediate level having lived in Spain and studied at school, as well as English, Geography, and Religion. I am also happy teaching writing skills and preparing for exams.

I believe the best way for students to learn is through a dialogue, for them to show they understand. To acheive this, I avoid lecturing and rote learning. Instead, I set out cl
ear learning objectives at the start and then ask appropriate questions to ascertain the student's understanding throughout our lessons together. This way my lessons are personable, and geared towards the individual student's needs.

I also believe learning should be enjoyable. I create a fun, enthusiastic lesson environment. I have worked with students of all ages and have built good rapport with them all. I look forward to getting to know you and starting working together soon!

About Isabela D.

Close
Profile_140769_pi_isabela
Fort George G Meade, MD

View Full Profile

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 despair (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.

My ESL lessons are based on tried and true methods that allow me to tailor my teaching style to fit that particular student. It has been proven, time and again, that when students practice my "homework" and take time to work on some of the exercises on their own, they will not only learn to perfect their skills faster, but they are more fluent than those who only limit themselves to practicing during the lesson. As with everything else in life, the results you see in your skills are determined by how much effort YOU put into learning and applying all of my teaching points.

About Shanna
Hello! My name is Shanna (pronounced Shawna), and I am a licensed teacher in both Oregon and Washington States in the USA. I have been teaching for over 25 years. I have taught children as young as 3 years old, to adults who were in their 90's! I love teaching! As a requirement for being given a teaching license in both Oregon and Washington, I have had extensive background checks by the various departments of the licensing process, along with yearly background checks for the schools I currently work for.
I currently live about a block from the Pacific Ocean and I love where I live! My husband has retired from the Coast Guard and we are enjoying our time together. Our little dog Mac, is our little baby! He is a mess, but we love him!
I really look forward to meeting you and helping you perfect all of your English language skill
s!
Do not hesitate to contact me to set up a time and get started working on your English language skills!

Helping you become confident in your English speaking skills will help you take brave steps into using English as a language to communicate. Learning English can be fun! As we explore a new language, you will also learn new culture. Language is more than communication. It is culture!

About Cheri
I have lived in non-English settings for 12 years, living and learning local language and culture, while helping locals learn English. I have a Master's degree in Art Therapy (Art & Psychology bachelor degrees). These studies enabled me to better understand how to listen to people's stories and to listen well so that I could help them from their own context; an important skill in teaching English.

2002-2008 For 5 years in China I taught Art and Physical Education, giving me experience in classroom settings with students from over 16 different countries, all with a native tongue. During my 5th & 6th years in China I worked within the Chinese schools and the sports community, helping tie character values into physical education, while helping students speak basic English.

2008- 2014 I lived in the southern parts of Africa for 6
years, working within the sports community, developing youth to lead well. I was helping local people develop their English speaking skills throughout this time (while I learned their language basics).

Learning another language or developing a second language can be fun! Let's do this together.

I have 20 years experience teaching English as a Second Language classes at adult schools, with a California State Professional Credential since 1995. I am always warm, friendly, flexible and fun!

I have tons of materials we can use, games, pictures, conversations, reading, grammar lessons, and more! I will adapt materials and teaching to your best learning style. You are unique and you deserve to learn in your way!

You will always have exercises and projects to practice during the week so you can maintain and retain what you learn with me.

About Caroline
I have been a teacher in the Los Angeles area since 1995. Born in California, I moved to Washington as a child, but returned here to the Golden State to go to Occidental College in Los Angeles. I moved to Long Beach in 2002, where I opened my own ESL program in 2011, through our church community center.

As a native Californian, I love our diverse and energetic state, and especially the international vibe of Southern California. My husband's family is Japanese, but my whole family speaks Spanish, and we make tamales and pozole for Christmas! I also love languages and translation, so teaching English naturally became my profession.

Teaching is my joy and delight. In more than 20 years of teaching, with thousands of students passing through my classroom, I honestly know that everyone can learn English. I work hard to plan lessons, create
my own projects and exercises to fit my students, and to constantly improve the quality of my curriculum and skills. For this reason, I use many different activities and styles of teaching in a single lesson. In one hour you might practice conversation, play a vocabulary game, write paragraphs, do dictation, practice speaking on the phone, and more.

Learning a language is an adventure, and it should never, ever be boring. It's a challenge, but one of the most exciting you'll ever experience.
