About Laurel T.

Close

I have taught English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) in Germany, Greece, and Turkey, and English as a Second Language (ESL) in California. In Germany, where I lived and worked for many years, I too had to learn a second language as a beginner to the level where I could function and work in a new society. So I teach from a student's point of view, understanding and sensitive to both the practical and emotional challenges you face.

About Laurel
My background in English language training is extensive. I have a B.A. in English Literature, Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certification, along with ten years teaching experience in Europe and the Middle East. I also hold a MSc. in Biological Sciences.

As a teacher, I recognize that all students have a predominant learning style, so I always work with each person as an individual, tailoring our lessons to discover and promote their innate abilities and interests.

My area of special expertise is writing, I have published papers in academic journals, newspapers and popular magazines, as well as a novel. I can help anyone master the skill of expressing themselves effectively. I love grammar and can make it fun and easy to learn.

These are areas of language training in which I excel:
• Grammar
• Reading Litera
cy (for both native speakers and ESL learners)
• Business and Vocational English
• Creative and Expository Writing
• English Conversation
• Exam Preparation (TOEFL, IELTS, MCAT)
• Editing and Proofreading

Portland, MI

Want to speak English more proficiently? Want to sound more like a native English speaker? I can help you learn more clear pronunciation, learn idioms, and learn the vocal inflections that are common in American English.

About Carla
I have been signing since 1998, spending every chance I can among my Deaf friends and immersing myself in the language as often as possible. I received my BA in Music with a certification to teach at Lubbock Christian University in 1998. Later I attended the Interpreter Certification program at Burlington County College in New Jersey from 2009-2011, and during that time took a summer course at Gallaudet University for the Deaf in Washington DC. Then in 2014 I received my MEd in Curriculum and Instruction with Instructional Technology from Houston Baptist University. I have been teaching ASL at the high school level since 2011. I am also one of the interpreters for the Deaf at my church in Fort Bend County, TX, outside of Houston, where I am a member and actively involved in the Deaf Ministry.

Please feel free to ask me any questions y
ou have. I'm happy to get back with you, and I look forward to teaching you!

Teaching ESL for several years now I've learned (as a teacher) that learning another language should not be boring but it does take time and daily practice. So, I like to focus on the student's specific needs and interests not to everyone! {:

About Alexandra
Greetings!, Hello!, Hi!, Hey!

I've been teaching English and ESL since 2000 and taught all ages from kids to adults. Two incredible experiences were teaching in Eritrea, E. Africa and Guatemala, C. America. Not only do I enjoy making grammar and conversation accessible to all students, but my goal is to help students to become fluent and obtain the skills to have both professional and social conversations.

Most importantly, I love teaching and helping students get on their own path of "the love of learning"!

Alexandra is an excellent instructor. She has a great friendly style with people of all ages and actors of all experience levels. Alexandra is very detailed oriented. This is beneficial to actors in that she makes sure you all are breaking down the script and asking all the right questions regarding the text, your role, and your scene partner's role. I feel you will learn a lot with Alexandra, as I did, and enjoy your time with her.

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.

About Isabela M.

Close
Fort George G Meade, MD

View Full Profile

I am a Certified Interpreter in five languages with the US Defense Language Institute Monterrey, California.

English is my third language but I didn’t stop here. I taught my mother and so many others tips on how to learn this language faster.

If you speak a Romantic language, even better; I’ll find “anchors” to help you connect the dots and allow you to find English words faster.
If your native language is not among the Romantic ones, don’t despair (though my assumption is that you stopped reading by now). Mentors are critical, and I’ll teach you ways to find balance, consistency, and discipline in learning English as a Second Language.

About Isabela
Before reading about me, I'd like to share up front the honor that my newest student, R., has brought to me by choosing to learn Romanian. Nothing special so far except that he is 100 years old!!!! Yes, you read that correctly: a century old. He is the outmost inspiring person in my life by teaching me that age is just a number and that learning can happen any day if we choose so. R is a medical doctor, a psychologist, a chemist and biologist. Words can't even define how great of a man he is.

I'm an enthusiastic learner even after 19 years of formal education (two Masters, one Bachelor) earned on two continents continued by US military education in various forms, and formally tested student who needed to document skills that were not formally captured on paper (like the foreign languages I know).

I love interacting with people and
pass on my knowledge from five visited continents, instill love for learning and continuous curiosity for any subject out there. Nothing is impossible when you set your mind to it. Failing once doesn't mean that you'll never win (proof in my athletic years and life ever since); determination, hard work, self-motivation and a good supporting system can bring to reality even the most insignificant dreams that we believe may not come true, and especially those in which we passionately trust.

I believe in breaking down a goal into objectives, assigning tasks to each one of them, and then sticking to achieve them.

I'm a Certified Instructor with the Department of Homeland Security. My hobbies include practicing foreign languages (and proper grammar rules which highly reflect on one's education) by speaking them, learning about cultures and slangs, etymology, watching foreign movies, traveling internationally, taking photos, reading (a lot), carefully planning with room for error and impulsive decisions (to take the boredom out of things), meeting with life long friends, drawing, painting, and spending time outdoors for inspiration and health.

I'm elated at the opportunity of brainstorming with you and giving you tools to be an independent learner.

I have been teaching English as a second language for about 2.5 years. I began as a teaching assistant and volunteer english teacher in Israel in 2016. Since then I have taught English online to students in China for about 1.5 years. I’ve taught students between the ages of seven to seventeen. My lessons focus on student development and growth. Regardless of their current english level, my goal is to reinforce what they already know and expand on it by providing new knowledge. Every step forward is rewarded and each lesson focuses on a small and easily digestible piece of the English language starting with the 50 most commonly used English words. Should a student have no prior English exposure, my goal is to give them a bedrock upon which other lessons can build. My preferred method is to teach online but I am also prepared to conduct lessons in person. Above all, I always look forward to having new students!

About Matthew
I am a part-time online teacher specializing in teaching english as a second language and history. I graduated from Curry College in May 2014 with a B.A. in Politics and History and a minor in English. I subsequently completed a 10 month ESL fellowship in Israel from September 2015 until July 2016. I began teaching online to Chinese students in August 2017 through the company of 51talk and was promoted once during my time with them. Currently, I teach online both through that company though also offer my own lessons which I design and use.

My lessons focus on specific words and how they are used. For example the most common word in the english language is the word "the." My corresponding lesson focuses on basic sentence examples using that word and also offers the student the opportunity to construct their own. I have similar lessons f
or "that," "this," "or," "of," and many others. My ultimately goal is to give the student a basic understanding of the 50 most common words in the English language upon which future lessons can build. More advanced lessons are available upon request.

In addition to English, I am also adept at History. I have always been fascinated with the subject and enjoy assisting others with historical assignments. In addition to graduating with a degree in history, I also gained the Politics and History award of my college upon graduation and studied the History of the Italian Renaissance for three months in Florence Italy in 2010. I am adept at essay writing and historical research.
