Bgcheck Background Checked


Private English Teacher

I excel in language arts, including grammar, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and writing - including essay writing, poetry and song lyrics. I also teach diction (pronunciation) and reading aloud/oral expression.
I am fluent in Hebrew, and studied Spanish for 3 years in high school. My background in these foreign languages helps me understand how to teach English to non-English speakers, as well as to native English-speakers.
As a tutor, I am patient, intuitive, friendly, and positive. :-)

About Linda

*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not typically provide any equipment - but I am willing to select and purchase books for the students to learn from (cost of books to be reimbursed by the student/parent) when requested to do so.

I am also willing to provide stick-on note-names for the keyboard, for young children.

The students must have their own instruments, and provide a folder for sheet music and notes/instructions.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar, I specialize in the following styles: jazz, rock, blues, folk, bluegrass, and children's songs.
Piano: I prefer electronic keyboard to acoustic piano, but am happy to teach beginning students on a regular piano as well. I teach note-reading, playing by ear, and theory, with en emphasis on rock, pop, and folk music. I include arranging, chord theory, and use of the many features of an elec

tronic keyboard, in the lessons.
Bass Guitar: I teach rock, pop, funk, and country music on bass.
Banjo: I teach bluegrass, country, and some blues and rock music. I also play and teach old-timey frailing/clawhammer style.
Ukulele: I play and teach all styles of ukulele.
English and Reading: I am highly qualified to tutor/teach English (spoken, written, and reading comprehension) to both native English speakers and to those learning it as a second language.
*** I am particularly good at working with children who have a.d.h.d. and other learning disabilities!

About Candace

I'm a classical violinist, a loving single mother, and a independent business owner for life, health and accident insurance through AFLAC from New York. I am a very accomplished musician performing in many venues and events such as the Long Island String Festival, NYC All County Music Festivals, Valley stream District 13 Music Festival, NY All State Concert, NYSMMA Music competitions, and yes even Carnegie Hall with the NY Metropolitan Youth Principle Orchestra 1st Violin. Ive learned that nothing of value in life comes without blood sweat and tears but it is worth it.

The things I love most in life are my son and providing for our family. On week days, you'll usually find me prospecting potential clients to help with their benefits for employees in any type of weather, for my independent business through AFLAC. On the weekends I like

to take my son with my dogs (sometimes) to the park, museums, and church or teach him the various wonders of life.

About Kesley

I focus mainly in tutoring and managing group study sessions for English learners, whether they are international students or native speakers. I have spent the past five years teaching English, ESL and Creative Writing in various countries. I have a certificate in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and TKT (Teacher Knowledge Test: Young Learners), and am currently working towards acquiring a CBEST (California Basic Educational Skills Test) certification as well.

I like to teach in a fun and comfortable environment. My teaching philosophy is that learning should be exciting, not boring. It is much easier for students to learn a subject if they enjoy studying it. I am a very patient and understanding individual, so no matter the student's level, I always find a way to work the subject matter around their needs.

I look forwa

rd to our future classes together!

My daughter first lesson was great, Lesley was very attentive and supportive. I believe that this will be a great experience!

Kesley is absolutely amazing! She is so patient and creative. My daughter struggled so much with reading. Now she is a confident reader and is near the top of her class in both reading and math. Additionally, my daughter struggled with some behavior problems. Kesley was firm but kind and helped her behave not only during tutoring session, but also in school.

We are also foster parents with kids of all ages coming and going all the time. Kesley has worked with almost all of them and helped them get caught up in school. If there was something higher than 5 stars, I would give it to Kesley. You could not find a better tutor.

I was an ESL students for one year and I know how important it is to have someone who can give you the right information in a simple way. I helped a lot of students with their struggles in English as a volunteer at an adult school. And I hope you can give me your trust as well to help you achieve your goals.

About Hend

As a person who speaks 3 languages and trying to learn a fourth one, i do know what is like to have the passion and the desire to learn new languages. I am a native Arabic speaker, I learned French and English since I was 3 years old, and currently I’m discovering a new language which is Spanish.

As a trilingual person, I know the importance of languages, as they helped me to shape my personality and open up to new cultures.

I moved to the United States of America 5 years ago. I took one year of ESL program just to refresh my memory and then I received my instructional aid certificate. I volunteered at Chaffey Adult school as an instructional aid for beginners and intermediate classes.

I look forward to meeting you, and help you discover and learn a new language.

I believe that students should be given an opportunity to be shown how to practice. This is so that when the instructor is not there to guide, the student is able to know step-by-step of what they are supposed to do.

"Isabela is a great teacher with a dynamic class and she gives a lot of tools so you can achieve your goal."
alper
"When I came to the US my English language level was not great. I had studied in school in Turkey, but my pronunciation was difficult to understand and the
grammar was impossible for me. I have been taking classes for about 1.5 years now with Micah and another instructor that works for her, and I have improved a lot. I have even been giving presentations at my job now. I am an engineer.

I was not expecting to improve my level like that in 1.5 years. Learn English or Spanish LLC has talented teachers. Now I am planning to take the TOEFL in 6 months, and I will prepare for it with them. After that, my goal is a Masters degree. I highly recommend classes with them.

They are extremely effective teachers."

"I loved her way of teaching, talking and treating as not only a English teacher but as a friend . When I felt frustration learning English or faced some d
ifficulties of living in the U.S., she always tried to help and assist me heartfully. She even accompanied me to see a doctor when I got medical problem. I was really moved.

she is a intellectual and nice person.
I am so sure anyone reading this review if you are with her learning English, definitely your English will be way better. She is simply a BEST!!!"

"Tamar is a wonderful, dynamic and enthousiastic teacher and my 12 year old daughter had a great time with her.
Tamar knows when to slow down if her stud
ent is tired, but is also demanding so as to be sure that progress are made.
It was a pleasure seeing how fast my daughter improved her English and we both appreciated meeting Tamar, who is a great person :)"
