View Full Profile

As an ethnically mixed immigrant who attended school here since the age of six, I have vast experience teaching the English language to other immigrants and natives alike. I've taken gifted classes throughout elementary, middle and high school, and completed several AP English classes. I attended college at the Miami Dade Honors College, where I completed several advanced English classes as well. I have taught pronunciation, spelling, and grammar to people from many different countries with great success.

About Lucas
Welcome! Bienvenidos!
I hope to be of great guidance in your musical journey.
I am fortunate to have learned from some highly remarkable musicians, and enjoy sharing my knowledge with those seeking to learn and further their understanding and skill.
I have been playing guitar for over a dozen years, and have almost a decade of private teaching experience with students of all ages and skill levels. Whether you're a complete beginner or have been playing for a while and want to get to the next level of understanding and performance, I can help. I play everything from classical to pop, blues, classic rock, and metal.
I have received several awards for teaching as well as for performing both solo and with different groups/ensembles.

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 25 years teaching experience, and a resume spanning many pages. I also am a well endorsed composer. 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 for my students to b
e 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 10-15 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've been teaching English for 7 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of the American culture, study abroad, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro!

About Daniel
I love teaching, I can teach you at where you at and take you where you need to be. I only need a student with the desire to learn and to practice.

I have been teaching English as a second language for for over 10 years and have taught over 60 students.

My love for and experience with learning new languages provides me with a unique insight into teaching English to students of all ages. I can utilize my Spanish or Mandarin to help you through beginning lessons if you're not yet confident in your English skills.

About Mark
Hey everybody! Hola and Ni Hao. My name is Mark and I'm a Language Tutor, Yoga Instructor & Organic Farmer with an International MBA and minors in both Spanish and Mandarin. With over 20 years of foreign language study, and 10 years teaching foreign languages to others, I know exactly what works and what doesn't when it comes to learning a new language.

I recently moved to Aurora, CO in order to be closer to my family since I have spent the past 12 years traveling the world.

I am a certified K-12 substitute teacher in the state of Colorado, and am in the process of obtaining the credentials to teach Spanish full-time K-12. I have the flexibility to work with you around your schedule and will create a customized lesson plan that fits your needs and unique learning methods.

My main requirement of you as a student is to be comm
itted and dedicated to learning the language we are studying and to work on the homework assignments I provide.

Hope to talk to you soon!

Mark

I just finished 5 lessons with Mark and it was just what I needed to help me improve my speaking skills. He assigned homework each week (the reason I initially chose him) that was based on our lessons. It pushed me to grow. I found him to be quite competent, gentle with correction, and pretty funny. You'll enjoy him!

It's no secret, learning a new language is tough! I myself am a language student and understand the difficulties and hard work students must endure to learn a new language.

I spent three years living and traveling abroad. During this time, I began my career as an ESL instructor. Those three years provided me the foundation of experience as an ESL teacher that I continue to build upon today. I strive to provide students the knowledge and skills they need to meet their individual language goals. I use personalized lesson plans emphasizing an immersion into the English language and culture. My lessons will engage students not only by providing grammatical and vocabulary building exercises, but also by inducing conversational fluidity through fun and exciting speaking activities.

My classes begin with a presentation. This is the time when we work together to learn and understand a new topic in English. We may be learning about propositions of place such as "in at on." ...

About Ryan
Hello my name is Ryan. For the past several years I have been teaching English as a second language in Madrid, Spain. During my travels abroad, I learned and experienced different cultures and how to interact with people from varying backgrounds. Now that I've returned home, I am looking to continue providing private lessons to eager ESL students. I strive to provide students with fun and engaging classes that are specifically designed to meet their unique learning needs and goals. I can teach students of all levels as well as give courses for test preparation.
My lessons are designed in a three step manner. First, I present a new topic to you that we examine as a team and work through together. Next, we practice the topic through various activities designed to help reinforce what you have learned. Finally, you actually produce
the skill that we have learned during our lesson. We do this final step to solidify your learning and help move the information into your long term memory so you can use it in your daily life!

ESL is a matter of sharing life lessons. Students already possess their own special talents and are full of life experiences from their L1 learnings. I will teach English as an L2 tool by sharing my life experiences, thereby making your life that much richer in language. In this day and age with texting and digital communication, the "Art of Communication" has been lost. My desire is to enthusiastically share my experiences in this lost art. Coming out of my lessons, students will have the confidence in their ability to express themselves comfortably within the American culture.

About John
Hi, my name is John Kim, and I am an experienced native American English teacher. I am a retired US Army Lieutenant Colonel with American diplomatic certifications in Japan and Korea. I have taught myself to be proficient in 5 languages. I taught Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced TOEFL English levels formally in school classrooms of 10-17 students. And of course, 1-on-1 private lessons also. You know that the four dreaded skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking are required in English schools, and you have already heard it over and over in your previous school lessons. Now, let me show you and share with you a different level of learning...called the "Art of Communication".

I teach through active conversation while still focusing on vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation. Each lesson is curated to focus on your personal intentions and goals, whether it be speaking, writing, listening, or even culture. We can form these lessons to be as vibrant and enjoyable in order to retain the most knowledge.

My students vary in age. I have experience working with children as young as 4 years old to adult seniors ranging in beginner to advanced lessons.

About Cynthia Coco
Good greetings!

I have 10+ years of experience in teaching, tutoring, and leading workshops. Currently, I am enjoying managing my own small business while teaching students part time.

I had the wonderful opportunity to work abroad, teaching English, Spanish, photography, and textile design. After a couple years of traveling throughout South America and Europe, I've decided to plop down in Asheville, NC, where I would love to continue teaching.

I am a clothing designer and botanical dyer by trade and also have experience in fine art, performance art, dance, and expressive arts therapy. These are also mediums I would be happy to share.

Learning should be a fun process, so I'm always excited work within each student's interest.

I've taken a few classes from Coco on product photography and lighting. I love how much of the topic we have covered in just these few sessions. Recurring lessons gives me a chance to complete assignments and review them with Coco. They're definitely affordable and informative.
