with Writing instruction

Combine subjects for a price break. For example 30 minutes of Math and 45 minutes of English would cost $50 separately, but would cost $45 for 75 minutes of Combined Tutoring. Simply choose ONE subject for the amount of tutoring time desired, and notify me which subjects you'd like to cover.

As a native speaker of American English, I can help you to learn the subtleties of the language. Whether you just want a partner with whom to practice your conversational skills, or a more advanced structure that includes, spelling and grammar, diction, jokes, idioms, and customs and traditions; English lessons will help you improve your understanding and use of this complicated language.

I have been taking private lessons with Anna weekly for one year. She has taught me Russian from a complete beginner level. I've taken a number of language classes in the past (for other languages) and it's clear that Anna is an outstanding teacher. She is clear and gives excellent explanations, and is well-prepared for each class. She's also able to give requested ad-hoc lessons whenever I have specific questions, even without preparation. I would highly recommend Anna as a Russian teacher, whether you're in-person or online. I do both types of lessons with her and she is highly effective through both mediums. Last but not least, she's a great pleasure to be around, as a person!

Lessons with Anna were excellent. She has the ability to bridge the language gap AND the cultural gap rendering her lessons relevant and invaluable. Anna is a complete joy to work with and I look forward to continuing my lessons with her at some point in the future.

Initially I like to evaluate the student's current comprehension level (regardless of years studied) to better select the appropriate starting point. From there, if there is a specific subject matter or course work/syllabus for a class that needs to be followed, I can tailor lessons to fit those needs. Throughout lessons, I like to bring in elements such as cartoons, newspapers, movie clips, etc. to aid in understanding everyday usage & make learning practical and pertinent to the student.

Kenji is a great instructor. He has a way of putting it simple and to the point. I haven't ever been confused by his explanations of any of the grammar and at this point I never expect to. Great teacher!

When you come to me for tutoring, for me, it becomes all about 'YOU". I identify the reason for you seeking this additional help. What is your need, what is urgent for you. Also, I use a self created diagnostic test to identify your current level in the given need based area. Once we have the over all picture of where you are, together we create .'where you want to be' i.e. our goal. Together, we then set to work on achieving the goal in as short a time as possible

I tailor the classes to your needs. After assessing your skills during the first lesson, I'll create a customized lesson plan that can help you master the English language as fast as possible.

We'll strengthen the foundation of your grammar skills so that we can build on it more effectively. We'll work on improving your vocabulary, grammar, speaking, listening, and reading skills with fun but informative exercises. And yes, there will be some homework, but it will be fun, I promise :)
