About Courtney K.

I have been trained specifically in English language pedagogy. I received my M.A. Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) in 2016. I have taught learners at all levels from basic (Arabic and Chinese speakers who were still learning the Roman alphabet) to advanced (graduate students who needed help following the conventions of academic English). Whatever your English language need is, I can help.

Courtney has been such an inspirational teacher. She has taken me from absolute zero to feeling like I can actually do something with confidence now. This during only two lessons. Courtney has a very gracious and friendly teaching style with me which I find very patient and comforting while learning something challenging.

This was my first lesson with Courtney and am already looking at the schedule for possible next lessons. Courtney is very patient and encouraging. Thanks to her I have confidence that I will actually be able to learn knitting which seemed impossible before tonight. Thank you Courtney! I am so happy to have found a teacher like you. See you very soon.

About Guifang X.

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? :)

I'm biased on this tutor because of a previous opportunity to serve our nation together. Anisoara was the most reliable member of Romanian interpreters when military missions required our role in international encounters. She is patient, articulate, intelligent, and very respected in the USA interpreters community. I highly recommend her to teach you the language and culture of the old Dacia (now Romania).

Hello! English can be hard. I get that. As an immigrant to the United States, I remember struggling through elementary and middle school and always feeling behind because of my English. Now, as a college graduate, fluent in 4 languages, and has worked as a translator, I understand how to teach language because I have had to implement some of these very same techniques to teach myself. Learning a language should not be boring. Language is alive. It’s spoken. It’s nuanced. It’s how we connect with one another. I would love the opportunity to help you connect through English.

About Ozioma

Although English idioms don't make sense at first, these unique expressions (together with proverbs) add substance and humor to our conversations.

This means that English idioms should not be taken literally, because their meaning is metaphorical. You don't really wish someone would “break a
