I disagree with whoever is commenting below me. Miss. Maria was having difficulties with the server that day (June 24th/June 25th) so she sent out an e-mail to let us know that and then had it back up and running. The website is totally available now and she replies to lesson scheduling stuff super quick

Miss. Maria is really patient and kind teacher. Lessons with her are very fun and she is also very bubbly. She is also very knowledgeable

I had only one singing class with Maria, and it seemed just fine to me but then she didn't upload as agreed the material I was supposed to practice during the week so when we met again she wanted to give me the same class while we agreed on material to practice to move on... After that I tried to get in touch to change the time of a class and she never got back to me. She seems very busy, can never answer the phone and hardly answers emails, am not feeling am getting any personal attention. Am switching to another more available teacher.

Shea taught me a lot as a friend and instructor. She helped me get a handle on my mental health and anxiety issues when I needed her most, and she was always knowledgeable and attentive. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss having her around to help me get through life.

· Screenwriting · Online
I am compelled to write a raving review about Haley Shea. I am 55 years old and started working with her one-year ago to nail down punctuation and grammar in order to write a blog about nutrition and resistance exercise. Haley is patient and has a pleasant demeanor that strongly motivated me to want to learn the material. Currently, I look forward to each and every lesson.

Around December of last year, I discovered that my heart was not into blog writing. I sent Haley an email and explained my feelings and that I was actually passionate about screenwriting. She wrote back and I discovered this was right (or write) up her alley. Truth be told, as a nine year-old I used to write and direct 8 mm movies with my neighborhood friends as actors and dreamed one day of becoming a writer, producer and director. But like all other dreams this one was derailed.

Haley had me write a couple scene samples. She sent them back to me and was quite pleased with my neophyte attempt. I told her about a sci-fi television project that I wast interested in and after many months of her encouragement and my persistence I finished the first draft.

After some revisions, I watched her perform a table read by Skype utilizing the skills of her improvisation students. I loved watching their reaction as they each read their part. It is very gratifying watching some one become the character you created. It was intended to be funny and campy. There were times the actors seemed to have trouble containing their laughter. Overall their reaction was positive.

At this juncture, Haley is helping me with query letters and obtaining input from other professionals in her inner circle. She is also seeking input from other writers.

The most important thing is I enjoy screenwriting no matter what happens. Haley has helped me love what I'm doing and it is not chore but sweet ride.

I'm greatful for her guidance,

I learned English as my second language when I was invited to study Music Performance at Dalhousie University on a full scholarship. As an ESL student I believe that I understand the intricacies of this language much better than a native speaker, since I had to learn it from scratch at University level. Through both of my degrees I have been writing academic papers and one of my essays was published by a Harvard professor. I am an avid lover of literature and a real grammar-nazi with good intensions of course!

Do you still feel shy or stuck in conversations, searching for the right words? Do you stay quiet sometimes because you’re scared of making mistakes? Do you think your English skills are holding you back from the job or life you want? I can help you overcome all of it.

Learning English can be difficult, especially if you’ve been doing it on your own. And language academies teach English in more traditional ways. Sometimes, they use textbooks with outdated or uninspiring content. They also focus on formal written English which is not the English spoken in everyday conversations. This approach works for some students, but not everyone.

If you have quickly lost interest or given up, it probably wasn’t your fault.

As an experienced English teacher, I know— everyone learns in different ways. That’s why I provide more visually engaging lessons and fresh content that keeps you excited about learning the English language.
