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.

*** Specialties ***
- T.E.F.L. Certificate for Teaching English as a Foreign Language

- Italian Native Speaker with a several year experience in teaching Italian

- M.A in Foreign Languages and Literature (English and French)

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.

Indulge yourself by learning languages. It opens your prospect to a new different world with a different culture, you feel like you gain a new person and a new experience while networking with new people around you. I personally admire languages and would like to share this passion with you. I invite you to start expanding your horizon by choosing a new language.
I enjoy teaching in a dynamic Fun Immersion method.

Experience, enthusiasm, and expertise describe me as a teacher. In addition to my training in Linguistics, Translation, Intercultural Communication and TESOL, I bring to the table 17 years of experience teaching English in a variety of contexts to a variety of students. I have taught middle and high school students craving attention and fun, business professionals striving for promotion, college students aspiring to study abroad, and PhDs polishing their communication skills. I will not overwhelm you with lots of talk and information; I will make YOU the center of each session. Regardless of the skills you want to practice (no kongfu though :)), I will do my best to accommodate your needs. As a person, I am efficient but friendly, serious but humorous, a challenger but an encourager. And, I look forward to working with you.

About Elena
If you are looking for an experienced and dedicated teacher to help you get high scores on TOEFL or IELTS or to prepare for college admission in the USA, look no more. As a current teacher at an intensive English program in Georgia, USA, I have been teaching grammar, reading, writing, listening, speaking, and test prep to students applying to colleges in English-speaking countries or improving their English to be better qualified for professional growth. I am also pretty comfortable working on more general goals such as daily conversation, US culture, reading for content, etc.

Here is my philosophy of teaching in a very very brief form: I am a big believer in needs analysis and diagnostic. Before any goals are set, it is imperative to understand students' backgrounds, aspirations for their future, and proficiency levels. Additionally,
I believe that setting tangible goals drives improvement and increases motivation. Finally, feedback, feedback, feedback! Intonation or vocabulary usage, personalized and specific feedback is what my students get and love.

As far as methodology goes, I am pretty eclectic. Again, methods and approaches are chosen based on students' needs. Sometimes we just have to work on drilling sounds and intonation or some simple grammar concepts like “do/does”, while at other times open conversation is the best way to practice the same content. One key component that doesn’t change is the focus on the student. I work hard on planning my lessons so that my students do most of the work during class. I also strive to contextualize everything around real life by choosing materials that are recent and relevant.

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!

English is the world’s language, but don’t let it intimidate you!
It can be very easy, specially if you learn it along with context and situations that you live everyday.

I have eight years of experience as an ESOL teacher, and I would love to show you how the English language works. With all the visuals and signals that I have prepared for you, you will be speaking English confidently in no time.

The most important subject we will start covering is pronunciation and confidence, when you feel with confidence, all the daily life situations that I will teach you will just follow naturally.

I look forward to teaming up with you,

Mariana

About Mariana
When I was growing up, we spoke English and Spanish at home.

I moved to Pennsylvania in 2010, and I started to teach Spanish in a close-by library to adults who were so engaged, that I felt motivated to create a more natural plan to help them remember the Spanish words with associations in English. In the same year, I started teaching Spanish at Lango to kids between two and six years old; I consistently used songs and puppets to reinforce my class success. I worked there for one year and two months before the Lango office moved to New York. But my library group was growing larger.

I want to be part of my students footprint, I want them to see in knowledge the way to a good and productive life, but also to inspire in them the desire to teach others in any field where they apply their capacities.

I’m always available whenever a st
udent or parent needs talking to me, and I would like to team up with the formers to improve my students’ learning experience. Please feel free to reach to me at any time.

Interesting facts
I wrote for a Mexican national newspaper from 2005-2016.
In 2006 I won the poetry prize Rosario Muñoz.
I research the linguistic neural connections where language lives in our brain.

I thank you for stopping by.
I look forward to teaming up with you,

Mariana

I have been teaching ESL for over 10 years. I'm passionate about helping each student improve language skills. I customize each lesson for each student in order to help him/her learn most quickly and efficiently!

I graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in International Studies, a minor in Russian language, and a TESL/TESOL/TEFL certification (ESL certification). I taught English in Taiwan and later worked at a Korean owned SAT/ACT tutoring center. Since 2012, I have owned and run Lauren's English Lessons.

I teach English in both casual and professional settings. My work in business setting includes teaching directly for and in indirect cooperation with a number of companies and their employees such as Schlumberger, ExxonMobile, Koras, SK, Tadono, GE, Marathon Oil, and many others including several various embassies.

We also offer Spanish and Mandarin Chinese lessons. All teachers are native speakers, have experience, and hold qualifications.

About Lauren
I graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in International Studies, a minor in Russian language, and a TESL/TESOL/TEFL certification (ESL certification).

I spent several years teaching conversational English and culture to international graduate students at Texas A&M with the volunteer organization iHouse (International House). Later I taught group lessons in grammar, conversation, and speaking with a local language school. I worked as a Program Manager at the Korean-owned SAT Solutions Test Prep Center for a year, helping organize and build programs that would help high-school students improve their English as well as their performance on standardized college-entrance exams. I also taught for 2 years as the high-school reading teacher there, where many of my students had recently immigrated from Korea and sought to improve the
ir English.

I have owned and run Lauren’s English Lessons since 2012. I teach English in both casual and professional settings. My work in business setting includes teaching directly for and in indirect cooperation with a number of companies and their employees such as Schlumberger, ExxonMobile, Koras, SK, Tadono, GE, Marathon Oil, and many others including several various international consulates. I also offer lessons in more casual setting for every-day English. Some students prefer to learn English while drinking coffee and discussing essential things like how to talk to children’s teachers or classmates’ parents or how to make small talk with the guy at the coffee shop or how to demand in effective English that your landlord fixes your problem immediately.

I have traveled to over 50 foreign countries exploring culture and language. I spent time studying in St. Petersburg, Russia and teaching in Tainan and Hsinchu, Taiwan. My travels help me better understand the culture and background of my students. I love learning about my students’ cultures, just as much as I love sharing my own with them. I have taught students from all over the globe – from countries including: China, Korea, Japan, India, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Turkey, Russia, Kazakhstan, Venezuela, Mexico, Bolivia, Spain, France, and many others.

I am a native English speaker, and I am conversationally proficient in Russian and somewhat proficient in Spanish. My travels and study of other languages have given me a more rounded grasp of the English language and a deeper understanding of the challenges of learning a new language and culture.
