The past five months spent with Henry teaching me my second language has been worthwhile. My decision to choose him as my instructor has paid off exponentially. He immediately immerses you in the language and steadily increases your exposure as you gain proficiency. This is exactly what I was looking for in a teacher, someone to push and challenge me to learn but also there when I was having difficulty.

As someone who has zero experience with the German language he definitely provided the firm foundation I needed to confidently continue my studies alone. I have no doubt when the time comes for more lessons I will revert back to Henry.

Er ist ein sehr guter Lehrer!

I am a certified (ESL) English as Second Language Teacher. I have experience teaching/tutoring children and adults. My teaching style includes both traditional and non-traditional methods(like singing songs and playing catch).There is nothing more rewarding than the look on a student's face when they "get it". Learning a new language can be exciting, yet challenging for students of all ages. Getting assistance can take the complexity out of the equation and make your experience more enjoyable. I specialize in Business English, accent reduction, and teaching English idioms (expressions).

About Lauren
am a certified TESOL instructor with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration and Spanish. I have experience teaching Spanish and English as a Second Language and studied abroad in Spain for a short period of time. In my 3 years of teaching, I have taught/tutored both children and adults. My students describe me as patient, kind, and motivating. My experience in corporate sales shapes my specialized business ESL focus. My objective is to help eager students improve their skills in grammar, listening, and expand their use of vocabulary and English expressions/idioms. Learning everyday English is essential for success. Therefore, my aim is to always teach my students language they can actually use right away. If they can use it, they will remember it and continue to build their confidence. As a foreign language student myself, I can u
nderstand and sympathize with the frustrations and challenges my students face on their ESL journey. I use 30+ methods(many of which are based on applied neuroscience research) to make learning fun and enjoyable, yet effective.

After working with all levels of ESL ( English as a Second Language) students in the Netherlands for 15 years and now back in the USA with Asian college students since 2015, I am confident in my ability to help anyone to speak, hear, read and write English in a professional manner and level optimally. My Dutch students have won regional public speaking awards to participate nationally and with an extensive performing arts background, I am most expert in boosting any student's performance as an English speaker and/or writer in whatever subject my students choose.

About Abby
IMPORTANT NOTICE: ** Because my private lessons are sporadically scheduled between other teaching, and I have found students over age 12 to need in depth lessons, the minimum time for them per session is ONE HOUR. ******

Due to my maternal grandfather's career as a Chicago vaudeville orchestra leader, from early childhood, the performing arts have been in my blood. Starting to study classical flute at age 12, then playing in the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestras and taking professional jazz/classical flute workshops/master classes, I've been teaching and playing all styles of flute music professionally since my 20's.

Vocal study began at age 15 with some great artists/educators in SF, Seattle, and Europe, including Bobby McFerrin, Mark Murphy, Broadway singer Adrian West, David Tigner- SF Opera, Davida Kagan-Seattle Opera, and Rol
and Wyatt-
Manhattan Transfer coach /NY Academy of Dramatic Arts. Through many years of teaching experience, I've developed a very successful, uniquely simple 8 part method to help cross cultural individuals/groups of all ages , styles, and levels, sing optimally from their hearts. The necessary basic vocal techniques can be taught effectively in 4 to 8 lessons, though the learning process takes longer and can continue throughout one's lifetime.

With a BA in Theater Arts from SFSU, and over 50 years directing, acting, and musical experience, including the last 15 years also working successfully as an ESL educator, I have gained the confidence to help almost any student achieve their personal and/or professional goals.

Being able to effectively communicate with others is the first step to building genuine relationships with them--whether casual, personal, or work relationships. My goal is to give my students the tools you need to communicate with others in English, so you can achieve your unique goals as a capable English speaker. I seek to genuinely listen to and learn from my students, not just teach. I aim to make your learning experience fun and joyful because learning a new language opens up new worlds and new possibilities and should be enjoyable!

The typical class length is 90 minutes. If that is too long for your busy lifestyle, please choose the mini class of 45 minutes. Connect with me today!

About Christelle
I love creating: writing, knitting, seeing new things come to life and thrive. I have extensive experience teaching women's health classes and counseling in natural women's health, because motherhood courses through my veins. I am also a published author and speaker.

I love to encourage and support my students and build into your lives -- to see you make goals, work hard to achieve them, and then succeed! If you are a student who will work hard -- and have fun doing so -- and want a coach who will cheer you on, then I am the teacher for you!

Baby Sign Language classes are either caregiver and child or caregiver alone. Baby Signs classes are appropriate for young children age 5 years old and under. Health coaching services are for women age 18 years old and up. My ESL classes are for women who are at least 18 years old.

As we took a childbirth class from Christelle, you might say we took one of the most important classes in our lives from her! We honestly believe if we had not taken her class we would not have had nearly so positive an experience in natural childbirth, so much credit is due to her. Christelle prepared thoroughly for all our lessons, included interesting activities and personal anecdotes. Most importantly, Christelle made it clear that she cared not only about our grasp of the content but also about us as people. That made all the difference.

My main goal is for you to be able use the language outside of class and to enjoy learning and using English!

Want to speak like a native speaker, but not feel like you are having your teeth pulled? Do you want someone completely different than your previous teachers and excited to teach and interact with you? Want to have fun while learning?

If YES, then I am the teacher for you! I have been teaching English to young professionals, grandparents, and children for the past 3 years in Argentina. I have a BA in Spanish and Educational Psychology and a Ph.D. in Political Science and worked for 6 years as a translator. I am fluent in Engish and Spanish and I love teaching and learning about new cultures.

I can prepare you for interviews, a first date, an important presentation or even just your day to day tasks. I will teach you practical English, not just the rules. I will help you learn applicable English for you to reach your personal goals while having a good time.

About Micah
I am a translator and a world traveler. I have worked with 3-year-olds to the CEO of a company. I will make your learning experience fun, time efficient and customized to your goals. I make language come alive... learning the rules is always good but being able to apply them culturally and fluidly is more important to me. I want you to be able to take on the world with your skills. Travel, connect, make money, order food, close that business deal, go on a date, make a friend or whatever your goal may be, I want to be there for you every step of the way.

I am an upbeat, optimistic, bilingual, quick, dependable, and creative teacher. I am young but mighty, wise and energetic. I have a years experience in travel, teaching, advising, and mentoring. For me, my most important qualities are my positive energy, integrity, and go-getting attitud
e.

With bilingual capabilities and an outgoing personality, I can inspire you with enthusiasm, optimism, and determination to learn a new language.

My experiences have made me adaptable and patient not only in regards to change but to a new perspective and tasks. I am ready to help you!
