About Beverly
In 2013 I gave up a longstanding career in Logistics and Imports to pursue my passion for fitness and education, and I have not looked back since. I enjoy helping others to learn and expand their horizons through language and movement. One of the reasons I became an ESL instructor is because I wanted to experience culture and diversity. I am truly blessed to have been given this wonderful opportunity to impart my own knowledge while learning from others.

I am certified as a teacher of English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) and English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). I am also ACE-Certified as a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor, specialized in Core Fitness, Senior Fitness Training and Functional Fitness. I train clients in their homes and online. Half of my day is dedicated to teaching ESL and the other half to f
itness training.

“I've tried to learn English for a long time and, though I learned a big amount of words , I wasn't able of having a short conversation with nobody. Teacher Beverly have been making a great job by identifying my difficulties and then working hard straight on it at abslutely enjoyable online classes. I'm really happy because in a few time I've improved my English skills as I've never did before, nevertheless I'm sure that there are so much to be learnt from her yet.”

I’m a Native Speaker with over 10 years experience with tutoring. I’ve taught adults as well as kids all ages, groups and one-on-one lessons. All lessons can be tailored to the student’s needs. My lessons are fun and dynamic, they integrate grammar, conversation and culture. Students learn the language through practical examples of daily life situations, that can be conveniently applied during a trip to Italy! We learn about Italian food recipies, music, and much more.
There’s no learning a language without understanding the culture and viceverse :)

About Pedro
I am an Opera Singer, currently based in the NYC area. I finished my undergrad in vocal performance at Universidad Central in Bogotá, Colombia and Master’s degree in music performance at the University of Denver.

The learning process is very different from one person to the other and this applies to languages, indeed. However, no matter what your pace is and what your goals are in a subject, my goal will always be making sure that you are learning something new every time, and of course, that you reach your goals in the process. Your process is personal and my job is to take the best from you.

Respect singing, I believe every person has a unique instrument, and no matter how easier or harder it could be for some people, anyone can develop his/her own instrument to the fullest!

I look forward to meet you and reach your singing and langu
age goals together!

About Aurore
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Classical Literature.
I have taught French and Latin in Middle and High Schools (from 6th to 12th grades) for more than 7 years in Paris and Lyon (France), until I left for New York in June 2019.
I am trained to teach French as a Foreign Language (FLE) and have audited classes of the Master’s degree in Foreign Languages, Literatures and Civilization – specialization English at Paris Sorbonne Nouvelle University (Paris III, France). This considerably strengthened my love and understanding of the American and British cultures, languages and histories.
I have also chosen to devote myself to French-Latin private tutoring to high school students and the organization of literacy workshops to teach French as a foreign language to young people and adult immigrants in France. These activities considerably develope
d my teaching skills and taught me how to make the French language accessible to a non-francophone audience.
Preparation to exams, refresher trainings or just learning French as a hobby, I would be glad to help you the best that I can. I am available, approachable and a great listener, thus I would be happy to take any questions you may have!
