I have a T.E.F.L. Certificate for Teaching English as a Foreign/Second Language issued by a college in Los Angeles and a MA in Foreign Languages and Literature, University of Verona, Italy.

I have been teaching and tutoring ESL for several years.

Being an immigrant to the States, I had to face the difficulties of no-being an English native speaker. I am fluent in English and I can help students to develop and improve their English.

About ENRICO
I am a native Italian speaker with a several years of experience in teaching Italian and English. I am a very easy-going, open-minded, professional person. I like to teach because it gives me the opportunity to meet new students, share my knowledge as well as my culture and experience.

I started tutoring back when I was attending the university in Verona, Italy. I was tutoring English, Math and some other subjects. Later on, I continued teaching English while I was working in other fields. In 2009 I moved to Los Angeles. For a couple of years, I taught ESL in a college, and in the meantime I tutored Italian to private students. Since 2009 I have been tutoring students both on the English and Italian subjects.

I really believe that in teaching, a language a primary focus should be on life skills. Not being an English native-speaker,
I learned how important it is to be able to express basic needs and to perform primary activities. However, it is important to consider other points like grammar, reading, writing. I also think that no matter what a teacher should always take into account the needs of the students and subsequently I plan my classes reflecting on the student's demands.

As to the different approaches and materials that I use, I suppose that it is important to change them frequently in order to keep the classes more interesting. Of course, there are some exceptions. For instance, in the past I taught for a while TOEFL and for that type of classes I used more traditionalist and academic methods and materials.

One of my greatest passion is to cook. I was extremely lucky to be taught and introduced to the art of cooking by my grandmother. She was born at the beginning of the previous century and she lived in different cities so she got accustomed to different traditions and shared them with me. I love to cook for smaller groups, using traditional Italian ingredients to prepare simple, but exquisite dishes that belong to the tradition of my native country. If you want to experience some real Italian food, you are definitely in the right hands. Just sit back, relax sip a glass of Italian wine while I cook for you and I share my art.

From the get go I knew I had found the perfect teacher,
Enrico is a motivating teacher.
He challenges you to learn what you need by reading and discussing interesting materials he sends .it isn't just not doing verbs exercises and tenses but actually participating in actual situations as if you were in Italy .
Enrico quickly helps you get over the nervousness that students experience when reading out loud and discussing the meaning of words in sentences and their uses.

Dear Parents and Students,

May I be a personal tutor for you or your child? I have been successfully tutoring for over 12 years. I have great references, and I am one of the top tutors because I am so easy to work with.

In addition to teaching for Cleveland schools, I currently teach 20 private sessions each week, 1st through 12th grade, as well as college stud

I am patient, friendly and many students tell me that I explain concepts more effectively than their teachers. I am available weekdays or weekends, days or nights, throughout the entire year. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have regarding my experience and teaching methods. While it should go without saying, I have a clean background that has been verified by the FBI and BCII. Let me know if you would like to set up an introductory lesson to design a customized strategy. There is no obligation to continue unless a customer is 100% satisfied.

I am one of the Top Five Tutors for:
1. most diverse subject matter
2. widest student age range
3. farthest geographical regions
4. largest client base
5. most hours taught monthly

As you can see I’ve written a review for Matthew regarding my daughters success (her test was last year) so I’d like to write one for my son also. My son was not driving at the time and Matthew agreed to drive to our home and teach him for an additional nominal fee. My son also took multiple tutoring sessions with Matthew and learned something new every time. He felt confident going into the test, confident in his ability to complete the exam and do well on it. Matthew takes his time with each individual and works with their specific needs. My children needed help in different areas of the ACT and Matthew was more than capable of helping them in those areas. My sons ACT score also went up 4 points after working with Matthew! I can’t say enough how professional, kind and thorough he is.

Whether you need copy-editing of your professional document, better pronunciation, or simply to reduce your accent, and sound more 'American', I am well able to help you!

About Stephanie
I am a career musician, and conservatory trained violin, piano and vocal instructor with over 40 years teaching experience, and a resume spanning many pages. I also am a well endorsed composer and public speaker. Furthermore, I LOVE teaching! I am a competition judge, member of National Music Teachers Association, and Suzuki Association of the Americas. I have proven results, as documented on my students YouTube channel. With my instruction, you will learn quickly and most importantly, correctly, saving you time and resources as you reach your musical goals. Fact: One of the only activities that activates, stimulates, and uses the entire brain is music, so let's get started!

Some people have difficulty reaching a teachers' studio. For this reason, I have perfected my ability to teach via Skype or FaceTime. It is an advantage f
or my students to be instructed by a quality teacher. It's worth a try, isn't it?

Please note: I only accept weekly lesson students. Also, due to my performances, I'm not always able to this calendar up to date....so when you request a lesson time, allow me to communicate with you, if we need to adjust it a bit. It almost always works out if you don't mind doing that.

*** Lesson Details ***
All the students on my Student YouTube channel who have studied under three years, are practicing 2 hours a week, and you will have a similar result. That's 20 minutes a day, 6 days a week. Students under 5 practice about 5-10 minutes a day.

Please have an assignment book that lies flat, and keep it next to your music books as you practice between lessons. My instructions are very detailed to insure your best progress.

Studio Equipment
For on-line lessons, you will need a quiet place, and please test your sound and video prior to beginning of lesson. For students under 13 or so, do have a parent or caregiver taking notes while we work together.

Specialties
I have much experience with various learning styles, and in fact, am featured in a documentary made of one of my autistic students.

I began taking on line Organ lessons with Stephanie in July of 2016. She is an excellent instructor. She makes you want to learn and do your best. She is very patient and explains things very well. She asks that you practice 20 minutes a day. Since she inspires you to improve and do your best, it is easy to practice longer than requested. She has brought joy back into my life through music. I am very grateful.

I have an eclectic and experiential approach to teaching. I use a textbook or any resources as a starting point and reference. Conversation is the most important practice and I always have very interesting conversations with students. I provide English lessons that are experiential, integrative, holistic, and dynamic. Field trips can be arranged. My aim is to provide lessons that are interesting, fun, and effective.

About Rebecca
Welcome to a new world with the English language! Learning a new language is one of the most exciting things you can do for yourself, as it has so many benefits. It opens you up to a whole new world full of different experiences, opportunities and friendships! I am a huge proponent of learning a second language. I love teaching English because I love working with internationals. Let me tell you a little about myself.

I have lived and worked in China, and taught many students of all ages, both in this country and abroad. I am TEFL certified and have a master's degree in psychology. I can tailor your language learning to whatever your goals may be- whether it is for work, school, or social needs. I have an eclectic and experiential approach to teaching. My aim is to provide lessons that are fun and effective. I have endless patience for
language learning. I have a sharp ear and am concerned with pronunciation.

Please contact me with any questions about location for your lessons, as I cannot tailor my profile here the way I would like. I teach in-home lessons on the Eastside of Seattle. Students outside of this area, I generally meet at a library closer to me. I do have availability in Seattle (limited), where I meet students at Beacon Hill Branch Library.

I look forward to working with you!

Sincerely, Rebecca

Rebecca is a very good tutor. She is a very communicative and friendly person. Her lessons productive and interesting. She was always ready to support a conversion and stayed calm about my mistakes :) We practiced new words, expressions and idioms, she helped me to correct my pronunciation and grammar. After our classes I became more confident about my English, especially speaking skills. She makes student very comfortable during the class. However, I highly recommend her as an English tutor!

I know how hard it can be in a public school if a student can't have a proper conversation due to the barriers they meet. To overcome the barriers i want to be able to help all the students facing these minor problems, and help them in any way i can possible. I went to Clements High School and now I am at University of Houston, graduating in 2020.

About Muhammed
Since I moved to sugar land , I have gone from Commonwealth elementary, to Fort Settlement, Clements high School and now to University of Houston. My major is Electrical Engineering on Drone Technology and also Im about to graduate from The Ocean Corporation as an underwater welder on February 2 2018. As for me i learn faster hands on, or visually because once you see something its not that hard to forget it. I love learning and think that there is always more knowledge out there to enhance your learning experience. I got an A in both Calculus 1 and 2 at UH and now im taking Calculus 3 this upcoming semester.
I look forward to meeting y'all, and helping you build a better future.

Hello! I've taught ESL for 7 years using a highly effective curriculum for students in Egypt, China, and Ukraine. I use an intensive and fun method designed to help students in the most effective and natural manner.

I grew up in Chicago, studied English Literature, and have a love of teaching. I've taught beginner adults and children to advanced learners who need especially challenging courses.

To give you an idea of how lessons work; In the first class I figure out what level you are and what grammar you need. After finding your interests and I formulate lesson plans around them. We cover listening just as intensively as pronunciation. Everything we learn in grammar will be immediately applied to conversation. I don't do boring and will make sure you're having fun and staying motivated!

Practicing between classes is just as important. Every class is a leveling up and in order to do that, practice and vocabulary accumulation is needed in-between lessons. We'll figure out how many ...

About Rose
Hello! My name is Rose. When I was a teenage backpacker, I began teaching English to friends I made in different countries who are still my friends today. After over 7 years of traveling, teaching and experimenting with different methods and learner types, I found that the uniting quality in effective lessons is that they build confidence through fun, motivation and the exploration of new worlds that language opens up.

Learning a new language literally increases the size of your brain. When I was learning, I discovered a new part of myself and became a fuller person. Learning new languages has helped me find the courage to do many more things. Its helped me try acting, creative writing and eventually I gained the confidence to direct the scripts that I wrote. The friendships I gained also happened because I put in effort to know the lan
guage. My reality is totally different inside and out and I'm really glad for it!

I've tried all sorts of methods and have dissected military courses for language acquisition as well a experimental approaches. I have around 8 different approaches that I take for learners of a specific type and need. Everyone is an individual, so I customize lessons for each person's needs and interests.

Rose is a unique tutor with an amazing educational background. Rose didn't give me only grammar and vocabulary but also the cultural contexts. We dealt with a long list of topics that were challenging and interesting. More importantly she has this bubbly engaging personality that keeps lessons fun and always learning something new keeps me motivated. Thanks Rose
