About Mary
Welcome! I am a former teacher with 10+ years for experience. I teach all levels of English, Spanish, and test prep, especially math.

I attended Seton Hall University for Education and Spanish where I was able to travel to Mexico, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Spain, and Costa Rica. After graduation I attended Rutgers for English as a Second Language. I am certified in New Jersey.

In our first lesson I like to see what level students are, ask what their goals are, and begin lessons that target those goals. Personalized lessons are the most effective and motivating. I love to help my students accomplish their goals and enjoy the process!

Mary is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and bright and tailors her lessons to fit the needs and desires of the learner. I enjoy our sessions very much and have learned more Spanish working with her than in all of my past attempts to learn languages combined (from years of courses to Rosetta Stone). In ten hours I feel I have a good foundation for understanding the language and can form sentences and engage in conversations on my own. I look forward to continuing with her and learning even more!

About Sara
I help people communicate in different languages everyday, my biggest passions are to help people learn Italian and to help students in succeeding no matter if it is for a test, exam or college/ school application.

Born and raised in Rome, Italy I graduated from John Cabot University in Business Administration and Marketing and I earned a Master Degree in Global Management from Fordham University in NY.

I am a native Italian speaker and speak English and Spanish. One of my favorite ways to learn a language is through songs. We can pick a song you like and take it from there. My approach is to find something that you are interested in and build a program around it: travel, workout, fashion, food, business etc.

I have tutored children and adults at different age levels for the past 10 years in English, Test Prep, College Applications, S
cholarship Applications, Business, Marketing and Math. I have guided students and helped to get through exams, admission papers, applications, resume building and worked with students ( including myself) to win thousands of dollars in scholarships.

I can tailor the classes according to your needs:

Italian: general knowledge, trip preparation, wedding speeches, business language.

Admission/ College and Test Prep: we will put together a plan that takes into account where you stand now, deadlines, grade or goal, your availability and I will make sure to push you to get where you want to be.

About Lisa
I have a BA in English from Franklin and Marshall College, and a Master's degree in ESL from Hunter College. I have been teaching ESL for over 25 years, both in the public schools and in private lessons. Working with students ages 5 through 60 suits me just fine, although most of my experience has been with elementary school students. I teach all areas of language acquisition--listening, speaking, reading and writing. I love to see the pleasure on my student's faces as they gain skills they didn't have previously. English can be a challenging language, but I try to make it a fun and worthwhile experience to learn. I like to play language games at all levels--a lot of learning goes on in play. I have every reason to think that your language skills will improve quickly if we work together--come on, let's give it a try!

About Jamie
I have assisted in teaching Anatomy & Physiology and Medical Terminology as well as Infection Control techniques and instruction in measuring vital signs within the Uniondale School District for the past two school years. I have observed that students struggle with pronunciation of these Latin and Greek derived terms and have developed fun techniques that reinforce memorization and pronunciation.

Additionally I was the TA for Beginning Speech at LIU-Post. Part of the course focused on identifying where sounds can become “trapped” in the body as well as where different sounds resonate. Students then recorded those sounds using the International Phonetic Alphabet.

Finally, I have privately tutored individuals, mostly ranging from ages 2 to 30, over the last 13 years. The sessions for my younger students focused on language acquisition and
pronunciation, reading and writing, math (traditional and Common Core), and the development of fine motor skills. Whereas, tutoring sessions for my secondary and post-secondary students primarily focused on resume development, research paper analysis, measuring vital signs, pronunciation of medical terminology, understanding human anatomy and physiology, and pharmacy technician certification examination (PTCE) prep.

The Ultimate Guide to Major Japanese Dialects
