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 ...

Joseph has a wealth of knowledge about speaking, listening, vocals, etc.

He created a welcoming environment in our online lessons that made it easy to be vulnerable and get right to working on new skills.

I highly recommend for others looking to better understand their voice and communication style, and learn to hone them.

Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.

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.

I have been teaching Science as a basis for ESL classes for 5 years. This will include reading preparation, reading out loud, research, verbal discussions and written topic assignments based on the level of the student. The subjects in science can be assigned or chosen by the student. This program is based on a block of 18 week classes. This is a full immersion English class.

About MARIE

I'm 67 years old. My home is surrounded by trees, squirrels, birds and flowers. I've been teaching science for about 35 years in private schools, public schools, technical schools as well as online. I retired from public school about 10 years ago but I never stopped teaching. The best part of wha

Marie is an enthusiastic and detailed teacher. She has a great ability to explain complicated concepts with visuals and unique approaches. Her love of the subject really shines in her teaching. I highly recommend Marie as a science tutor.
Gina
Marie teaches with great enthusiasm, and it's hard not to get excited when your teacher is so excited about the subject. She has a true appreciation for how things work together, and it's like she helps you put the puzzle pieces together to see the cause and effects. With Marie, it's not like you learn tons of individual facts and memorize a bunch of stuff that you'll forget later. Instead you learn how one thing affects another so you can understand cycles and processes in Science. Plus, she has a great sense of humor and loves to laugh, so that makes learning fun.
Sofia
Marie is clear and patient. She’s sparky and explains things interestingly.

Learning a second language is challenging, but with patience and dedication, it can be the most rewarding thing one can accomplish. I am passionate about teaching and helping others. That is why I earned my master's degree and continue pursuing my English language education.

What makes a successful teacher is the ability to relate to his/her students with empathy, patience, and encouragement. I can connect with my students and understand the challenges and rewards of learning a new language. Being responsible and dedicated, I make sure my teaching style is interactive and efficient, primary seeking the student’s best interests.

About Ilma

I have been teaching for quite a while now, and I strongly believe that everyone has the potential to learn and be successful. English is a universal language, and it is also what is going to make you stand out from the crowd in several areas, especially professionally. It is time to stop procrast

Hello and welcome! From our first lesson, we will work on correct grammar and pronunciation in the English language. Depending on the student's specific needs, we will focus on building a core of every-day words and their use in past, present, and future tense. In addition, we will spend time pronouncing words correctly with proper rhythm, vowel sounds, and accent. Learning a new language at times can be quite frustrating, but my methods center around practical, real-world use of the English language to maximize our lessons.

I've been teaching ESL for 3 years now and my students have gone on to love English and have improved reading, writing, listening and speaking skills, especially the difficulties in English pronunciation. I speak American English. Within the first few lessons you will learn new sentences and start learning how to have a conversation with native English speakers! Then you will go on to work on grammar, reading, writing, and listening skills. We will also focus on pronunciation and common words and phrases including slang. Soon you will be speaking like a native! I typically use Practice Makes Perfect book series which are very reasonably priced and easy to find on Amazon or book stores. I also use multimedia such as podcasts, music, news broadcasts, stories, poems, newspapers, worksheets, games, and activities. I love working with everyone from 5 years on up to older adults. I will find out exactly what you want to learn and why you want to learn English and then tailor lessons ...

Our 28 year old autistic son came skipping down the stairs with a joy and enthusiasm we haven't seen in a very long time. He told me all about the lesson, then he told me all about Stephanie G. The instruction went so well online he created an earring. Amazing, considering his learning disabilities which include fine motor skill issues.
The statment , " She liked me too. She liked my ideas and said I was doing a good job," will stay in my heart forever.
HIs joy and confidence are absolutlely priceless.
Thank you, Stephanie G. for being an incredibly motivating skilled teacher.
