I can help students make sense of assigned reading and learn how to write a well structured essay. I have a PhD in Languages and Literature, so I am well versed in this subject.

About Melissa

I have been teaching Spanish, Portuguese and English at both the high school and college levels since 2007. I have a PhD in Spanish and Portuguese (Romance Languages) from Harvard University, and I have taught everything from Spanish 1 through advanced literature courses, to Portuguese for Spanish

Melissa is a miracle worker! My mother-in-law moved to the United States 40 years ago unable to speak english and while she has done a good job at learning on her own, she had significant gaps in her ability to effectively communicate. For her 68th birthday, I bought her lessons with Melissa. My mother-in-law told me I was wasting my money because she couldn't learn anything new. Well, needless to say, she can learn and with Melissa's excellent tutelage has dramatically increased her ability to speak and comprehend english. This has enabled a new level of confidence and freedom that she did not previously have and is a game changer for her. I attribute her improvement directly to Melissa's ability to understand her student's needs and personalities and craft and deliver a quality, tailored curriculum. After our first round of classes, my mother-in-law is excited to continue the lessons and has a renewed curiosity and interest in learning. Great job and thank you Melissa!!!

Melissa has a lovely calming personality. She made us feel completely at ease while learning a foreign language. She was prepared and tailored the lesson for our specific goals and level.

She displayed an expert knowledge of the language, but was still able to teach beginners. Plus we could tell she really loved Portuguese.

The online format was great. Cant wait for the next lesson.

Melissa is the best! Extremely knowledgeable and patient with her students. I highly recommend her.

It is obvious that one of the challenges of formal education in some part of the world in contemporary times is the inability of students at all levels of education to communicate effectively in both spoken and written English. This regrettable situation, no doubt, is partly responsible for the seemingly poor academic performance at primary, secondary and Tertiary levels. It is no longer news, for instance, that a good number of graduates of tertiary institutions hardly express themselves convincingly and effectively in both spoken and written English.
English language is a general language use for communication all over the world and it is right to teach English language from the initial stage of a child's life.
To me English is unique because I love seeing my students gaining from my own knowledge.

About Grace

When I was much younger I know little or nob about English, so I decided to build myself during my high school days. I developed a reading, writing and listening skills which helped me till date. Due to my passion for teaching I spent much of the 5 years of my life in teaching all level of educati

Love how she teaches the mechanics of learning to sing properly such as breathing correctly and posture right from the start for a beginner. Fantastic instructor!

Amazing singng instructor

Crystal has increased my daughter’s self-esteem and expressiveness through song. My daughter is now writing her own poetry and song lyrics, as well as being able to combat her once shyness quality. She loves to perform in front of others now and has a confidence level that amazes me, especially now that she is going into those “teen” years. I think a lot of thanks needs to go to Crystal, for assisting my daughter in reaching her current creative level!

Great piano instructor

Crystal is an amazing piano instructor. She is patient, understanding and dedicated. My daughter has learned so much from her. My daughter’s love for music has increased immensely since learning how to play the piano. This would never have been able to be accomplished without Crystal’s professional and caring teaching style.

A language isn't just one skill. It's a set of skills and the traditional, classroom-based approaches to language learning aren't very effective, especially for developing your speaking skills. My philosophy is to be a guide and mentor who is very focused on your needs and interests and who can give you the tools and information that you need in order to succeed as an English speaker. Because of this, I don't have a specific, rigid type of lesson that is too focused on grammar like traditional classes. Instead, I work with you to create the type of lessons and learning plan that best suit you.

I specialize in American pronunciation and ear training (including accent reduction), as well as language mentoring (learning how to learn a language in the best way that works for you), but I also have a lot of different activities and tips to improve all of your English language skills! NOTE: If your main focus is accent reduction/pronunciation skills, please sign up for my accent reduction

Besides the fact that Josh is very friendly, active and communicative, he is just different than any other teachers. He has his own unique process of working on student's accent reduction, listening and understanding English native speakers. With him you will get familiar with the rhythm and music of English speech that will help you to become fluent. But if you decide to up your grammar, I would highly recommend to get his course along with his books. It is worth it to have him as your teacher. I wish everybody lots of luck and fun in studying.

Josh uses very creative methods to teach English. For example, he is always prepared with a lot of examples, tools, books that he has written, and activities that you don't find in a normal class, and has an extensive background in helping people learn how to improve.

Josh is very supportive and understanding and he uses his creative methods to help people understand whatever they need to focus on.

Josh goes deeply into all the areas of language learning and teaches people how many things work in a logical way.
