Experienced ESL teacher of 9 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. I specialize in business and everyday English, typically use English File and English Grammar in Use books, and also have the following tools available to use during lessons: games, role-plays and newspaper articles for discussion and vocabulary practice.

Erin was extremely knowledgeable and patient during our lessons. I'm a beginner and knew just one stitch and now know several more and have a better idea at following patterns, too! I appreciate the time and, again, patience she had for me when I dropped stitches, as well! I would highly recommend Erin to anyone who wants to up their knitting game!!

My first lesson was a real happy one, I was nervous and stressed about starting. Ms. Stephanie was very pleasant, explained things so I could comprehend it., she was strong in confidence yet happy in mild in teaching style. I’m very hopeful I will learn a lot from this brilliant teacher.

I am an adult beginner violinist. When I first met Stephanie, I had barely touched a violin, but I was determined to learn how to play it. With her help and patience, I am progressing through the Suzuki method as well as doing ear training and music theory. Stephanie is an excellent musician as well as instructor! Her method of teaching keeps the students engaged, encouraged and excited about learning music from all sides of it.
Naomi G.
I strongly recommend Ms. Quinn. She is amazing. I love a teacher who is passionate about what she does and Ms. Quinn has motivated me to love the violin and work harder to improve. She is slightly strict but very patience and kind, always pushing you to work hard and do your best. I learned to play violin a few years ago as a beginner and stopped playing for a few years. I was nervous to begin online violin lessons considering that I learn better face to face. However, Ms. Quinn has done an amazing job at teaching me, I have been taking lessons with her for a year now and have learned so much I didn’t know before which has also grown my love for violin.

Private ESL Teacher

I hold a M.S. degree in TESOL and have taught both general and academic English for over 15 years, in various venues such as community organizations, community college and a private language academy, in addition to private tutoring.

My passion is to provide personalized instruction for English language learners. I work with each student to identify the specific areas that they want to focus on and create customized lessons to help them reach their goals. I use a communicative approach – we don’t just study grammar in my classes, we learn how to use the language in daily life! For students interested in English for Academic Purposes, I have extensive experience helping students prepare for university level English proficiency.

About Jeanette

I became interested in teaching English when I lived in Venezuela, South America. I had studied Spanish in high school and college, but when I arrived in Venezuela, I discovered I couldn't understand what people were saying in Spanish and they couldn't understand me very well. This is exactly the sa

My lessons are always very interactive! You will not just sit and listen to me! If you don't talk -- a lot -- I didn't do my job and you can fire me! Accent reduction and pronunciation are strength areas, especially with Asian languages. Strong skills with business professionals, especially in the high tech industry. We will work on the things that matter to you! Writing, Small Talk, Pronunciation, Vocabulary and maybe some Grammar. Let's have some fun, do some work and expand your English!

I'm Abu. I graduated from Addis Ababa University with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in and from Portland Community College in Health Informatics. In college, I realized the classes I appreciated the most we're not necessarily the topics I was most interested in. Rather, it was the professors who made the classes enjoyable. These Professors are always engaging and comprehensible when teaching the materials in the classroom, and willing to go the extra mile when asking for additional help for clarification. I tried to bring this knowledge to my teaching approach, do everything I can and make learning a pleasant experience. Use lesson plans in which they usually introduce a topic in a fun and creative way, then explicitly teach the material. Afterward, I always ensure time for students to practice the material on their own. Of course, this method can be adjusted based on the subject and the student's individual needs.

I have a year of tutoring experience in a Science classroom. I ...

About Abu

Unlike many other careers, I enjoy caring for others. My interest in teaching began back in 2008 while I was at work for a completely different purpose. This brief work experience I had some 8 years ago when I was back in Ethiopia, though I wasn’t even an academic professional at the time, except

I have been teaching ESL classes since 2009 and my students have a proven track record of success.They have moved on to complete high school, higher education on a college or university level as well as securing better employment or a job promotion. I use a variety of learning materials depending on the student's language goals. I work with students of all experience levels.

About Marcia

Would you like to be able to speak English with others? Do you want to understand what you read? Would you like to be able to write your thoughts so others can understand you? If your answer is "yes" to any of these questions, then you have found the right teacher. Hello there! My name is Marci

Marcia is an excellent tutor. This pandemic has really made things difficult for our family to keep our children on track with homeschooling. Marcia hit the ground running with our daughter who had become discouraged with all the work she had to do. Marcia was able to look briefly at the curriculum and come up with a plan to not only get our daughter back on track but motivated her to keep the momentum going. She has been a very positive light for our daughter. We truly appreciate her.
Ana
In 2013 and 2014, I took English classes with Marcia Albergo. Marcia was a very different kind of teacher. Unlike other teachers, she fostered a love for the language. She encouraged everyone in the classroom to reach their potential. Her method of teaching was also different than the other teachers I had. She used a variety of materials that not only helped us to learn English, but also encouraged our desire to learn. She covered a variety of topics and subjects that held the interest of the students in the classroom. Whether it was learning new words on each new page of a book or new expressions, I was challenged to learn the English language in a variety of ways. I believe she did a good job as a teacher because I was actually learning more than just English. I was learning things about the world that I never knew before. Thanks to her method of teaching, I have learned English well. Marcia was my favorite teacher.
Danute
I have take lessons from Marcia several years ago and highly recommend you take lessons from her as well. She helped improve my English greatly, because she is very professional teacher. Marcia always well organized and prepared. She use effective teachings methods. Gramma exercises, verbs conjugation, colloquialisms, expressions, discussions helps me become a fluent speaker.
She can connect to her students on multiple levels and give for them support. Marcia is very responsible and extremely helpful, she always answered in all my questions. Marcia is a great teacher and friend.
Thank you so much.
