I taught English for 5 years. My students were Chinese-American kids and Chinese new adult immigrants. Besides the textbook, worksheet,I also used English cartoon movies, English songs. role play, English salon activities, English practical conversation to help my students with their English study.

About Sandy

Having taught Chinese Language Skills in the private sector, primary, secondary and college institutions for a number of years in China, has not only given me great confidence to teach in a classroom setting, but has inherently brought an instructor comfort that feels natural to me.
In addition, finding an opportunity where I can assist the kids, middle school and high school students and adults who love to learn Chinese college staff while maintaining my teaching proficiency in traditional or simplified Chinese characters is both welcome and rewarding to me.

I'm certain that my rich knowledge and years of experience in classroom practical application of Chinese Curriculum / Culture coupled with my love to teach make me a professional, responsible and patient teacher.

In addition, I can teach you Chinese in your location which

is no more than 10 miles away from Vista where I live. I can also teach you how to play badminton and cook delicious authentic Chinese food.

Ms. Qi is a very accessible and diligent teacher. My son can be difficult, but she found ways to quickly connect with him and get him to open up. She accommodated his need for assistance with his regular work, but encouraged us to "start again" with Chinese which is probably a good idea. Very much appreciate her experience and enthusiasm.

Si tu lengua natal es el español/castellano y quieres aprender a escribir, leer y hablar en inglés esta es tu oportunidad de hacerlo.
Conmigo aprenderás desde lo más básico: cómo conjugar los verbos en todos los tiempos, usarlos en una oración y comenzar a estructurar largas oraciones y textos.
Mi metodología se basa en "learning by doing" a través de material audiovisual( lecturas, musica, videos).
Si eres estudiante o profesional en un área específica, nuestros temas pueden enfocarse en lo que tú desees pero eso si, únicamente en inglés.

About María

Hello!! I'm Maria Fernanda

I am a business administrator and I currently live in Madrid Spain where I am doing a Master in Business Analytics and Strategic Data.

In my spare time I love teaching English(basic and intermediate level) and Spanish(all levels).
My teaching method is always depending on the student interest. Generally I try to do it the most fun, interesting and entertaining possible.
I have a special rule: no other language allow in class(just Spanish or English depending on what language I'm teaching). I believe that the most efficient way to start learning a new language is to think, listen and speak just in that language. Of course I could be flexible if the student doesn't speak that new language at all.
In my hometown (Venezuela) I had experience teaching basic English in an elementary school and teaching priv

et lessons for kids and teenagers as well.

Let me know if you are interested in taking classes with me.
Don't lose the opportunity to learn Spanish with a native speaker!

¡¡Hola!! Soy María Fernanda, soy administradora de empresas y actualmente vivo en Madrid, España en donde me encuentro cursando un Master en Business Analytics and Strategic Data. En mi tiempo libre me encanta enseñar inglés (nivel básico e intermedio) y español (todos los niveles).
Mi método de enseñanza depende siempre del interés del estudiante. Generalmente trato de hacerlo de la manera más divertida, interesante y entretenida posible.
Tengo una regla especial: ningún otro idioma se permite en clase (sólo español o inglés dependiendo del idioma que estoy enseñando). Creo que la manera más eficiente de comenzar a aprender un nuevo idioma es pensar, escuchar y hablar solo en ese idioma. Por supuesto, podría ser flexible si el alumno no habla ese idioma nuevo en absoluto.
En mi país natal (Venezuela) tuve experiencia enseñando inglés básico en una escuela primaria y también dando clases particulares a niños y adolescentes.

Avísame si estás interesado en tomar clases conmigo.
¡No pierdas la oportunidad de aprender inglés y comunicarte en cualquier lugar del mundo!

Hi, I’m Sama and I help professionals build fluency in English for life, work or travel.

I’m an certified English teacher from Canada and I've been helping non-native English speakers become confident and fluent in English for almost a decade. I'm also a passionate writer. I write articles and social media content to help over 90,000 English learners to overcome challenges, learn and grow.

Before taking my online classes, clients usually come to me with these tough challenges:

-They fear that they don’t sound professional when they speak English.
-They’ve tried everything and still can’t speak English fluently.
-They feel powerless and they’re starting to lose motivation.

If you’re facing similar challenges, I completely understand your frustration. The language barrier is restricting your career possibilities and your opportunities for a better life. It’s limiting your relationships and connections on a personal or professional level.

-Better English pronunciation and clarity when speaking.
-More comfort and ease in having conversations in English.
-Feeling more prepared for English interviews and presentations.
-More confidence in talking about products and services in English.
-Improved interactions and connections with English speaking directors, clients and colleagues.

My English classes are for you if:

-You’re at an intermediate English level (B1) or higher.
-You need English for personal and career growth.
-You’re feeling blocked and losing motivation.
-You feel like you don’t sound like an expert in your field because of the language barrier.
-You need to become more confident in talking about your brand and/or explaining products and services in English.

I have tutored English students from kindergarten through adult. I am a certified ESL teacher, so whether English is your first, second or third language I can help. My goals as an English teacher are to help you thoroughly understand what you read and to be able to express that understanding through speaking and writing. Whether a student is reading Dr. Suess, Dostoyevsky or Darwin, my goals as a teacher are the same.

I tailor my lessons individually to each student. I help you learn the way you learn best, and I teach you strategies to expand your English abilities. I would be happy to provide a free consultation to discuss English tutoring with you.

About Marie

I have been an educator for more than ten years. In that time, I've taught and tutored English, Language Arts and Spanish to students from elementary to PhD level. I also help students study for the SAT, ACT and TOEFL tests and coach students through the college and graduate school application process. I love teaching and learning. I am patient, enthusiastic and dedicated to my students.

My teaching philosophy can be summed up in a few words : learning should be fascinating, relevant, individualized and fun. Helen Keller said, “ A well-educated mind will always have more questions than answers.” My goal is to help my students ask the questions that will lead them to deeper understanding. The poet Mark Van Doren said, “The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.” In our lessons, I will help you make discoveries that will ins

pire you to keep learning.

When I’m not teaching, I love reading, exploring the California coast, writing poetry, meditation and singing loudly.

I was an ESL students for one year and I know how important it is to have someone who can give you the right information in a simple way. I helped a lot of students with their struggles in English as a volunteer at an adult school. And I hope you can give me your trust as well to help you achieve your goals.

About Hend

As a person who speaks 3 languages and trying to learn a fourth one, i do know what is like to have the passion and the desire to learn new languages. I am a native Arabic speaker, I learned French and English since I was 3 years old, and currently I’m discovering a new language which is Spanish.

As a trilingual person, I know the importance of languages, as they helped me to shape my personality and open up to new cultures.

I moved to the United States of America 5 years ago. I took one year of ESL program just to refresh my memory and then I received my instructional aid certificate. I volunteered at Chaffey Adult school as an instructional aid for beginners and intermediate classes.

I look forward to meeting you, and help you discover and learn a new language.
