I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

Online ESL Teacher

I have a T.E.F.L. Certificate for Teaching English as a Foreign/Second Language issued by a college in Los Angeles and a MA in Foreign Languages and Literature, University of Verona, Italy.

I have been teaching and tutoring ESL for several years.

Being an immigrant to the States, I had to face the difficulties of no-being an English native speaker. I am fluent in English and I can help students to develop and improve their English.

About ENRICO

I am a native Italian speaker with a several years of experience in teaching Italian and English. I am a very easy-going, open-minded, professional person. I like to teach because it gives me the opportunity to meet new students, share my knowledge as well as my culture and experience. I started

My background as a teacher of ESL is extensive. I taught technical English to engineering students at the university (MEPhI) for 8 years. Additionally I have been preparing Russian students for the English State Exam at school and adults for business and private trips to English speaking countries.
As a philologist I am able to pinpoint individual issues and difficulties to help correct problems in language acquisition.

About Tatiana

I am a former German professor from Russia who currently lives in America and tutors full time now Russian and German. I provide a variety of activities for my lessons so you will never get bored. For example, I will use games, interactive conversational lessons, fun warm up tasks, case studies,

Annabel J.
I've been studying Russian with Tatiana for close to six months now at two lessons per week. From the very beginning, it's been an immensely fruitful and deeply enjoyable experience -- I feel my progress in the language is palpable (and I was a total beginner at 23). Our lessons are fun, and the homework assignments (most often, textbook exercises and reading responses to Russian-language films) challenging (though never to the point of being stressful). A huge bonus is that our textbook is online and free. I've been deliriously happy with my experience, and cannot recommend Tatiana enough.

My daughter has been very happy with Tatiana’s lessons

Tatiana is a great teacher. She’s patient, non judgmental, welcoming, thorough and gives you plenty of resources. I’m really happy and relieved I have her as my teacher.
