Private ESL Teacher

I have been teaching English as a foreign language (EFL) in China for more than 8 years and as a second language in the U.S. for one semester. In my ESL class, I encourage students to be brave and to appreciate their accent and their multiple cultural backgrounds.

Speaking English with an accent is bravery. That's part of your identity. Having multiple cultural backgrounds means you are unique and you can bring that uniqueness in your writing and discussion. And think about that, you can speak language(s) other than English, you are very special!

Hence, in my class, I am very willing to help students build their confidence and strengths in their English learning. I am not a native English speaker and my English is not perfect, but I see myself as a multi-competent teacher. Over the years of language teaching experience as a teacher and learning experience (I can speak five languages) as a multi-linguistic learner, I believe I can help you achieve your goal under our mutual ...

About Guifang

I have 10 years of language teaching experience. I have learned eight languages and dialects over the years in China and overseas. I started tutoring Chinese students (age 8-16) English and Chinese in 2009 and I founded my first summer camp in China in 2010. Students who had registered for my summer camp increased from 25 in 2010 to 86 in 2016. I've gained very valuable skills and perspectives in teaching, not just as a teacher, but also as a student--students are my teachers too--I've learned there are always places that I can improve and better help them learn languages. Students' "needs" and "wants" are prioritized. It helps students achieve their goals while combined with students' "lacks" in lesson planning. Students should get involved in the lesson planning process.

Interest is the best teacher. When I taught non-native Chinese

speakers (in China, South Korea and the U.S) Chinese, it seemed it stimulated their curiosity and interest to learn Chinese when cultural elements were introduced--such as characters' origin and visualization, historical contexts and cultural traditions. I hope that approach can also bring you an enjoyable experience learning a new language!

To help you be able to use Chinese, our language learning is mainly through interactive and communicative approaches. Talk! Talk! Talk! Please don't be shy. It's okay to make mistakes. Learning from mistakes is also a very effective way to learn a new language. We can make more contextualized dialogues based on whatever textbook you are using now. Or we can produce functional conversation based on everyday topics that you are interested. Lesson plans are customized and they can be flexible.

Ready to get on the boat and sail on the sea of Chinese? :)

Hello! If you want to travel to America, you have to deal with Americans, you have to speak English. What makes me a great English teacher? Many things. But lets start with the basics. I have no regional accent. What that means is no American person can ever hear me speak English and determine where I am from. You want to learn from an American English Language coach that has no accent. People from the south, New York City, Minnesota and other regions of the country can have very pronounced accents.

My goal as a teacher is for people to not know that you are a non native English speaker. This means that you will have learned how to create all of the sounds that the English language produces.

DO NOT BE INTIMIDATED BY NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKERS!

You are just as smart and capable as they are. I have high expectations of your potential as an English speaker. You should also have high expectations of yourself. I have high expectations of myself as a teacher. I am ...

About Ronald

Hello. What's up? How are you doing? Hi. Hey. What's going on? Those are all various American English greetings. My name is Ronald. My nickname is Ronnie, Ron or Renaldo for my Spanish speaking students :) . I was born in Washington DC. The capitol of the United States. That means I have a neutral American accent. You want your English teacher to have a neutral American accent.

Why?

Because people without accents are more easily understood than people with accents. I am a lifelong student of languages. I taught myself fluent Spanish using a cell phone application. I am currently using that same app to become fluent in Egyptian Arabic. It will probably take me 2 years to become fluent in Egyptian Arabic. How did I become fluent in Spanish and soon to be Arabic?

The first step in learning any language is list

ening. If you cannot hear the sounds being made then you will never be able to speak any language. So my primary tool is tuning your ear to American English. I will give you homework assignments that require you to listen to certain sounds and words.

We will also always focus on subjects that YOU are interested in talking about. History, politics, science, current affairs, geography, food, speeches, journalism, etc. My class is great for anyone interested in working with English speakers. aupairs, pilots, doctors, nurses, politicians, students and attorneys can all benefit from my masterful ability to teach people how to understand and communicate in American English!

What are you waiting for? Let's start today!

ESL Learners: Are You Making These 21 Common Mistakes?

By Suzy S.

There are certainly some tricky words in the English language! And sometimes, people who have learned English as a second language mix up these words. Want to avoid making the same mistakes? Here are the words ESL learners misuse the most. Them, Those, and These "Them" is a pronoun that stands in the place of a plural noun. It is commonly used as the subject of a sentence, as in: Did you see them? or Have you seen the scissors? I used them to cut the labels off my T-shirts; now I can’t fin …
