Private ESL Teacher

I'm a student at University at Albany working on my Master's degrees for ESL Education Program and Intercultural Communication. I am passionate about teaching, and I absolutely love the idea of cultural exchanges and learning about students! I was also an ESL student when I first came to the States and I understand how hard it can be. I have experiences in teaching a class of more than 25 students as well as one-on-one tutoring sessions of various proficiency levels. Hope to hear from you soon!

Hikaru is down to earth, conversational and a great teacher. I have already learned so much from her. I can't say enough good things about her. If you make time to study on your own, in conjunction with her lessons you'll be picking up the language in no time at all!

About Melissa

I have been teaching Spanish, Portuguese and English at both the high school and college levels since 2007. I have a PhD in Spanish and Portuguese (Romance Languages) from Harvard University, and I have taught everything from Spanish 1 through advanced literature courses, to Portuguese for Spanish Speakers.

I enjoy working with students one on one and helping them feel empowered to use the language right away. I put a lot of time and joy into planning classes for each student, based on their goals and interests. I keep my classes really light and fun, but I will also make sure that you are learning!

I have experience working with students with learning differences, and have worked with children and adults.

If you want to work with a real teacher who can design a class just for you, I am the teacher you are looking for!

Whate

ver your goals are with your language of interest, I can help you get there. Get in touch any time to tell me about your goals. Hasta pronto!

Melissa is a miracle worker! My mother-in-law moved to the United States 40 years ago unable to speak english and while she has done a good job at learning on her own, she had significant gaps in her ability to effectively communicate. For her 68th birthday, I bought her lessons with Melissa. My mother-in-law told me I was wasting my money because she couldn't learn anything new. Well, needless to say, she can learn and with Melissa's excellent tutelage has dramatically increased her ability to speak and comprehend english. This has enabled a new level of confidence and freedom that she did not previously have and is a game changer for her. I attribute her improvement directly to Melissa's ability to understand her student's needs and personalities and craft and deliver a quality, tailored curriculum. After our first round of classes, my mother-in-law is excited to continue the lessons and has a renewed curiosity and interest in learning. Great job and thank you Melissa!!!

Melissa has a lovely calming personality. She made us feel completely at ease while learning a foreign language. She was prepared and tailored the lesson for our specific goals and level.

She displayed an expert knowledge of the language, but was still able to teach beginners. Plus we could tell she really loved Portuguese.

The online format was great. Cant wait for the next lesson.

I love Junia's teaching style, she is very thorough and helps you understand why you are doing and saying what! I have learned so much during the few online live classes that I have taken with her. I've tried other instructors as well but her sessions are best for me! You can tell she has the heart and passion for truly helping others succeed. She motivates me to do better!

Originally from the US and with a neutral North American accent, I have taught in South Korea, Thailand, Italy, Wales, and France. Lessons are customised to each student based on their needs and interests. We can focus on grammar and vocabulary, conversation, professional English, test preparation, or academic English. All ages and English levels are welcome!

About Brigitte

I graduated from Seattle Pacific University with two degrees in European Studies and Romance Languages. My studies also include time spent at the University of Salamanca in Spain, the American University of Paris, and John Cabot University in Rome. I also have a minor degree in History.

I spent one year working as an English composition and French tutor in the United States for two middle school students. In 2010, I moved to South Korea to teach English. I spent about four years teaching elementary and middle school students in after-school English academies. My students ranged from very beginning to upper-intermediate levels of English.

I also earned my TESOL certificate from the American TESOL Institute in Thailand. After leaving South Korea, I worked as an English camp counsellor in Italy and Wales for Italian elementary and middle

school students.

Since moving to France, I have mostly taught adults in a professional setting. My courses have focused on grammar, vocabulary, conversation, business English, and test preparation. I have experience preparing students for the BULATS exams and the TOEIC.

I have taught all kinds of classes over the past ten years, from reading activities with children to more advanced discussion topics with teenagers and professional English with adults.

I have travelled the world for the last 10 years working with students who's first language isn't English. In this time I have learnt the easiest and most effective ways to help students develop the confidence to explore English and use it to speak, write and listen in various environments from professional level to conversational.
I love being part of the learning process and seeing the amazing things that my students go on to do with the English skills that they learn in my classes.

About Harry

I have always loved the learning process and so I made it my mission to create a life of helping others to learn.

This life has mission has taken me around the world teaching various subjects in all sorts of places and my love for it grows more and more everyday.

I have seen from all my wonderful experiences that having a teacher working closely with you to guide and support you allows students to fly and achieve anything they want.

In the case of learning a language its such am individual process that immediate feedback and adaptation of the lesson is the key to quick acquisition and confidence in applying those language skills.

I believe my enthusiasm, patience and problem-solving skills are the perfect combination in helping my students to achieve their dreams.

I am excited to work with you.

The Complete List of English Idioms, Proverbs, & Expressions

By Jessica Dais

Although English idioms don't make sense at first, these unique expressions (together with proverbs) add substance and humor to our conversations. The Oxford Dictionary defines the word "idiom" as a: "group of words established by usage as having a meaning not deducible from those of the individual words (e.g. over the moon, see the light)." This means that English idioms should not be taken literally, because their meaning is metaphorical. You don't really wish someone would “break a …
