Experienced ESL teacher of 9 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages!

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!!

I came to the United States with about three English words. One of them was the word - pencil. Not very useful you may agree.

I have become a translator in real time, published writer of both professional writing in my field of music and of fiction. My writing has been sold in all stores and outlets. It has been carried and sold online as well as in all stores of Barns and Noble, Amazon in hard cover as well as soft cover editions. I have been published in newspapers as a music critic and my editing of scientific literature that pass peer review on the largest online magazine has helped publish and approve works by PhD musicologists as well as faculty of the famed Oxford University. My speaking is without accent or any indication of my origins. My original language is Russian.

Let me help you to reach a place of ease and comfort in your communications. Getting a job, finding friends, filling out forms or writing creatively. No matter what you do, your language is ...

Joseph has a wealth of knowledge about speaking, listening, vocals, etc.

He created a welcoming environment in our online lessons that made it easy to be vulnerable and get right to working on new skills.

I highly recommend for others looking to better understand their voice and communication style, and learn to hone them.
Catherine K.
Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.
Donna
I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I'm a student at University at Albany working on my Master's degrees for ESL Education Program and Intercultural Communication. I am passionate about teaching, and I absolutely love the idea of cultural exchanges and learning about students! I was also an ESL student when I first came to the States and I understand how hard it can be. I have experiences in teaching a class of more than 25 students as well as one-on-one tutoring sessions of various proficiency levels. Hope to hear from you soon!

Paige M.
I just had my second lesson with Hikaru and I ask so many questions all the time and am just a lot as a person, but she's so patient and is really willing to answer all of my questions and go over absolutely whatever. She's also very good at explaining things and can explain the grammar side to me (I'm a big grammar proponent), which is an absolute blessing. Lessons fly by and I absolutely cannot wait for my next one.

Also, she's been helping me find resources that I can use to work on my Japanese outside of lessons. I know that some people won't do that because they want you to buy more lessons, but Hikaru genuinely just wants to help me learn both the language and the culture.
Micah
Great instructor. Patient and willing you work with you.
Paige M.
After one class I’m so excited for more. Hikaru started off by explaining the very very basics and was incredibly knowledgeable whenever I asked questions. I look forward to my next class.
