I'm passionate about teaching people how to quickly communicate in English. In every one of my classes, students talk about what interests them in English. Because I'm the director of a New York City school, I not only help students write resumes and learn how to speak in work situations, I customize classes to student's needs and interests- whether art, travel or the news. As an experienced ESL teacher. I engage my students in learning English with interesting, multi-media activities. We learn words to songs, see videos about grammar. read and discuss interesting topics. I enjoy teaching online. I virtually welcome people to my home in New York City and students are relaxed in their homes. About Dina I was born in NYC to parents who had just immigrated to America from Europe. For 5 years, Ive been teaching ESL to adults at Columbia University's Community Impact (CI) program. Students are from South America, Europe, Africa and Asia. CI gave me an award as "creative teacher." As the director of a career school, I teach English to people with international Student Visas. I also teach ESL online to people who have come to live in America. Some of my students live in other countries. Based on the success of my online elementary school English classes, some of my high school students in China asked me to prepare them to take the Toefl exam, an entry requirement for many American universities. Contact me and we can discuss your English language goals. No obligation. The first 1/2 hour lesson is free.
