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 ...

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.

Joseph shared his composition at the bedside of a dying man. Everyone listened and stopped crying for a moment. We were transported from the terrible tragedy into his world of beautiful music. His compassion and sensitivity of spirit touched us. When he teaches this gift to others, the world becomes a better place.

A great teacher and an amazing pianist! This was an experience of a lifetime for me. I have studied for many years but have never met anyone who can explain and demonstrate with such depth and clarity. In one lesson I learned more than I have in the past year! I am so grateful and would recommend this masterful teacher to everyone.

I believe students learn English faster and more in-depth, when they are having fun.
I enjoy tailoring the exercises and activities to my student's interests and focus on improving their speaking, listening, writing,and reading skills.
There are many approaches and methods out there to teach English. I believe it's beneficial to introduce them all. Not only does this add variety but can help us discover an approach or method that really clicks with the way you learn.
The class is full-immerison, meaning from start to finish we communicate in English. This is the best way to learn English; even if you don't know any English, we will communicate only in English ( don't worry- just as a child learns a language, we will use photos, videos, music and other media to aid in learning. This will make learning English easy)
I am here for you. Whatever goals you have, we can accomplish them together.

My lessons are always very interactive! You will not just sit and listen to me! If you don't talk -- a lot -- I didn't do my job and you can fire me! Accent reduction and pronunciation are strength areas, especially with Asian languages. Strong skills with business professionals, especially in the high tech industry. We will work on the things that matter to you! Writing, Small Talk, Pronunciation, Vocabulary and maybe some Grammar. Let's have some fun, do some work and expand your English!

Lori, one of the best teacher I have seen. As a not native English speaker I was thinking I am doing a good job in my English communication, but then started taking classes from Lori and I improved a lot in my English communication. She is one of the teacher who puts all her energy to make sure what ever you are learning you never forgot in life.
Without any second thought you can go ahead and start taking class from her.
She is doing really amazing job in this profession.
I am very thankful for her teaching and she is very good human being .

As a working professional in the airline industry, my role has been revolved around customer support & service for many years as a flight attendant and a gate agent. A friend of mine referred me to Lori given that he has a positive experience in improving his communication skills in English. Because I interacted daily with customers with different language backgrounds, I as non-native English speaker wanted to better communicate with them in a sophisticated way. Lori captured every single incorrectness from me - she is not picky but detail-oriented - and helped me speak more naturally but precisely. Although Lori and I only e-met online, she used a variety of tools to maximize her teaching effectiveness for our class by using Google docs, Skype, useful resources online, etc. Lori was also flexible to accommodate my availability. She is a thoughtful person who uplifts and challenges me, which I really appreciate! You would be fortunate to have her as your English teacher!

It was very fortunate to meet with Lori. I was looking for someone who can help me hone my professional communication skills in English at workplace in both speaking and writing. During class, I experienced many WoW moments because she didn't simply spend our class to find incorrect grammar and misspellings. Instead, Lori fundamentally changed my thought process in my English writing from a cultural perspective so that I don't just mechanically emulate my mother tongue into English. Instead, I was always encouraged to put myself on the American audience shoes in regards to the best optimal story-telling context. Also, she has a very good understanding of difficulties for international folks in English pronunciation. This is one of the beauties you would enjoy when you have Lori as your coach. She just doesn't ask you to mimic her pronunciation. Her pronunciation class is designed to help you understand how to make sounds properly and to reduce accents. Last but not least, Lori is a wonderful person to work with. She is humble, tactful, and generous of spirit. I highly recommend you to start one class to get a sense of what I just said. Meeting her is Believing!

Online ESL Teacher

I am the son of Brazilians who immigrated to Toronto, Canada, where I lived and studied until I was 23 years old. After returning to Brazil, I pursued a career as an ESL Instructor. Throughout these 27 years in ESL, I have assisted people from all walks of life. I have prepared business people to conduct meetings, presentations, lectures, developed students for international courses through certification exams such as TOEFL, IELTS. I believe it is of the utmost importance to adapt to each student's needs to maximize learning. Customizing the method applied in class is critical to a more effective and cost-effective learning process.

About Marcus

I am a professional ESL Tutor. I have taught over 1300 students during my 27-year career, many of those in Language Schools, and others as a private Tutor. In Brazil, I founded and coordinated my own Language School, where I trained and developed ESL instructors for 5 years before moving to the USA

Marcus is an incredible, patient and dedicated teacher. Because of his classes, I was able to achieve the high scores in Ielts required for my canadian immigration process. Unlikely many other teachers, he won't merely teach you the language. He will embrance your challenges and goals as his own while He do his very best to immerse you into English regardless the country you live in. I highly reccomend him whether you have to improve your language skills or you have the dream to start speaking English.

Marcus, you’re one of my best teacher that i’ve had. He has a unique method to explain grammar and so creative ways to help me to get focus at classes. He’s so passionate about teaching and have a good feeling to help their students achieve the goals. He understands the moment of life of each one and respect and help unconditionally. He’s a great man and i’m so grateful to have had classes with him! Thank you!
