Private ESL Teacher

I have been teaching ESL for over 11 years now in many distinct areas. I began teaching ESL when I moved to Ecuador in 2009. I worked in a wide array of different academies, Universities, in-company classes and private classes. In 2016 I moved to Seville, Spain to begin my PhD in Philosophy and have continued teaching English in the same capacity. I am specially geared towards exam preparation (Cambridge, TOEFL, APTIS, etc). My intent is always to cater to the students needs. I am very dynamic in my classes and always try and have fun as well as move the student forward on their path to mastering the language. I am also bilingual in Spanish.

I have always been interested in the unknown and have always had a wanderlust for new places. I began teaching in 2009 and have continued up until the p

English as a Second Language (ESL) classes are designed to teach a variety of language skills to non-native English speakers (also known as English language learners). Whether you are looking to becoming fluent in English as formal education, or just learn more for a hobby, let me help you! I am an experienced ESL teacher with TESOL certifications and have worked with many overseas companies.

ESL classes can help school-age children and adults learn English listening, reading and writing skills; these classes can also help them develop conversational and culturally appropriate speaking skills. Further, ESL classes can be designed for college students who need to pass English language tests to pursue advanced education or for professionals who need specific English skills for their field.

About Kayla

I am a professional singer, pianist, guitar player, and have vast experience in the recording industry and traveling abroad for music performance. I graduated from Lee University with a Bachelor of Arts in Music, specifically voice, and a Masters in Music, specifically gospel arrangements and church

I have a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry with a minor in Pre-Health Professional Studies. As a former pre-medicine student, I know the content depth that is important to teach to my students. As I am currently earning my Master in Secondary Education towards becoming a teacher, I am trained in the learning sciences to teach my lessons in an effective and memorable manner. I have experience scaffolding and differentiating lessons. I know how to accommodate and modify lessons based on IEPs. I am also trained in designing Response-to-Intervention to get underachieving students to succeed. I have experience with Highly Gifted, International Baccalaureate, and Advanced Placement classes.

To whom it may concern,
Diana L. Has been an amazing instructor for the past couple of months. She has encouraged me and pushed me to do better in math. She explains the material in different ways to find a perfect fit for me to understand. She’s very cooperative and values teaching. She has helped me in every way possible. She gives session notes so I can study the material afterwards in order to help me retain everything. I highly recommend her teaching!
Cliff
To Whom it may concern, 

I am writing this review because something amazing has been taking place with my child since she's been working with Ms. Diana L.

My Daughter Chelsea struggled for years in math and she lacked mathematical confidence, but since she's been working with Diana her Math skills and confidence have increased dramatically. 

Ms. L. takes a flexible approach to teaching and finding the best tailored approach for her students. I believe this approach is the reason for my daughters' recent success. Diana has only been working with Chelsea for a few months and her test scores and class participation have increased greatly.

I would recommend Ms. L. to any one that has a child that struggles in any area of Math , she has done wonders for my child and I am highly appreciative to her for all her teaching.

Sincerely,
Cliff Lawrence

I earned my MA in teaching English as a second language and have worked with everyone from nearly fluent children to adult beginners.

I am prepared to cater my lessons to suit whatever your needs may be! I am experienced in online and on the ground teaching at the university level and have worked with everyone from children learning phonics and the alphabet to adults learning academic English and research skills for PhDs.

I myself have studied a number of languages, and I bring this knowledge to each lesson in order to address specific challenges a student might have.

I look forward to starting a language learning journey with you!

IF A TIME IS NOT LISTED AS AVAILABLE, PLEASE SEND ME A MESSAGE. I CAN PROBABLY ACCOMMODATE YOU :)

Because my daughter had difficulty with reading in school, her reading Comprehension was not good, so we found Sara to be my daughter’s reading teacher after school. We made a reading plan for my daughter with Sara together , Sara is very patient and understanding. My daughter said she is very nice and funny in the class, and she likes Sara very much! After Sara taught my daughter reading, my daughter’s reading grade became A in school ! Sara, thanks so much for your teaching!

My daughter loves her classes with Sarah. She is a great teacher who comes well prepared!

Experienced ESL teacher and a Certified Language Coach, trainer for professionals and open-minded individuals, who are ready for a change, ready to move on with English language learning to another level and get the results. I structure my sessions so clients learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation, I help you to set achievable goals, to find your unique motivation and your learning style, I typically don’t use books at our sessions as I believe that through structured conversation and practice you learn much more, you can still use books for selfstudy and review between the sessions! I am using mind maps, online platforms to make our sessions fun, interesting and super efficient!

Zhao Yang is the perfect teacher. She is attentative, patient, thorough, encouraging, and extremely informative. I am so glad that I chose to learn from her. She assessed my knowledge of Mandarin in the very first lesson.

The lessons are tailored to my interests and learning style. Not every teacher has the ability to teach in a way that caters to an individual's learning needs and abilities. Having this ability makes Zhao Yang (feichang hao!) great! Each session, she reviews what was taught in the previous lesson and homework given. She also gives me a game plan on what I should practice as well as tools that I'll need to help me practice. I feel more and more confident after each lesson. I really appreciate Zhao Yang!!!
Nathan G.
Zhao is an excellent teacher. She is patient and really understands how to present the material in a way that is easy to learn. I highly recommend!
Stephanie
Evgeniya is an amazing Russian teacher! I am an English speaker, and I live in a place where Russian is widely spoken. I have tried a few times to learn Russian, and this is the first time that I am optimistic that I will progress in learning to be more conversational. I would recommend this class to anyone!

"Hello,
When I moved from Russia to US in 2011, my English was at beginner’s level and I desperately needed to start speaking this language as soon as possible: especially for my job but also for my every day life.
I tried to take some ESL classes at local colleges and also study with a tutor but it did not work very well. Instead I became more afraid of making mistakes or saying something not correctly. I was frustrated and started to think that I am just not made for learning new languages.
I heard about Roman from my colleague who did intensive French language program designed and taught by mr. Nam. So he told me that Roman also teaches ESL. I decided to give it a try.
After three months of classes with Roman my English improved so much! From the beginning of classes I started to feel so motivated and everything was explained in really simple way. I don’t really understand how Roman was doing this but every class and even every homework was so interesting and so fun to do. I loved to hear myself speak English better and better. I started to use my english in any situation and I felt so confident.
Now, after four years living in US my English is much better but i know that the most important step in my progress was the program I did with Roman and I am very thankful for all his help."

ESL Learners: Are You Making These 21 Common Mistakes?

There are certainly some tricky words in the English language! And sometimes, people who have learned English as a second language mix up these words. Want to avoid making the same mistakes?
