I teach English as a Second Language and English for Speakers of Other Languages. While teaching, I focus on pronunciation, vocabulary, spelling, reading, writing, sentence structure, subject-verb agreement, comprehension, etc. I have taught ESL/ESOL/TOEFL/TOEIC/IELTS to Saudi/Persian, Chinese/Taiwanese, Russian/Ukrainian/Latvian, Japanese, and Brazilian students, as well as others. I have helped six TOEFL candidates retake their test and score totals in listening, speaking, reading, writing as high as 96.

About Matthew
Dear Parents and Students,

May I be a personal tutor for you or your child? I have been successfully tutoring for over 12 years. I have great references, and I am one of the top tutors because I am so easy to work with. I teach in person, or via TakeLessons classroom, telephone, Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Join.me, Appear.in, Screenhero (remote desktop, screen sharing) interactive whiteboards, as well as email attachments (PDF, Word, Excel, etc.) I graduated with honors, Summa Cum Laude from Case Western Reserve University, where I made the Dean's List. I also earned a Provost Academic Scholarship for my excellent test scores, including 34 in ACT mathematics and 780 in SAT mathematics.

In addition to teaching for Cleveland schools, I currently teach 20 private sessions each week, 1st through 12th grade, as well as college stud
ents and business professionals. I have also served on the faculty at Cuyahoga Community College.

I am patient, friendly and many students tell me that I explain concepts more effectively than their teachers. I am available weekdays or weekends, days or nights, throughout the entire year. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have regarding my experience and teaching methods. While it should go without saying, I have a clean background that has been verified by the FBI and BCII. Let me know if you would like to set up an introductory lesson to design a customized strategy. There is no obligation to continue unless a customer is 100% satisfied.

I am one of the Top Five Tutors for:
1. most diverse subject matter
2. widest student age range
3. farthest geographical regions
4. largest client base
5. most hours taught monthly

Please note: I have set up my billing in thirty minute increments. Thus, I am able to offer lessons of varying lengths. However, I would appreciate longer sessions. I thank you for your time and consideration and look forward to being at your service!

My subjects include:
ACT, SAT, PSAT, NMSQT - undergraduate admissions
GMAT, GRE - graduate admissions
ISEE, HSPT, SSAT, TACHS, COOP - high school admissions
ASVAB, AFQT, ASTB-E, OAR - armed forces placement

About Clarissa
Hello out there!
My name is Clarissa, i'm excited to get to know you more and what your goals are for this new adventure your are taking in.
I've been a teacher for more than 10 byears now, I started as an aid for a Kinder garden teacher at a bilingual (English/Spanish) school and I discovered that i was really good and I enjoy it very much!
I have a bachelor in Pre-school teaching and also ESL. Being that English is a second language for me, I find it easy to teach Others because i was once a student so I know a few tricks to it. I have been learning and perfecting the language for over 25 years. I have taught all ages and backgrounds
I believe that everyone is unique and that is why you have to choose a learning plan that works for you. working with children has given me the patience tought me alit of patience and differenr skills,
there is no wrong answer in life.
The same goes for my Spanish, a language that I love and believe you never stop learning, it has so much history to it!
Feel free to contact me at any time! Cant wait to meant you!

I have deep intercultural sensitivity, after spending significant time abroad studying and traveling; and I have sophisticated English language skills.

About Natalie
After graduating high school at the top of my class, I got full funding for an economics degree at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where I was born. I was very busy in college--my extracurriculars included 2 semesters abroad (Spain, Singapore), writing an honors thesis, being a consultant to the academic advising office, and being president of an honor society; besides this I worked my butt off in classes and graduated with a 3.7.

Besides academics, I am super interested in fitness, general wellness and psychology.

I would love to talk it out with you wherever our learning interests intersect!

I believe that every student can learn and that learning should be fun! I have taught English to adults and children of all ages both online and in-person for the last two years. I create a comfortable learning environment and provide a lot of enthusiasm and encouragement. I always focus my lessons on what the student wants, whether it is working on conversational skills or grammar skills. Please message me to get started!

t as fun and relaxed as possible. I can't wait to work with you!

Seattle, WA
View Full Profile

Pronunciation focused lessons to help you become comfortable expressing yourself in *any* social or business situation. These lessons focus on training your tongue, lips, and other mouth muscles- the way you train your body for running a marathon or lifting weights.

Do any of these statements sound like something you've said?
"I have a hard time understanding English when people speak fast."
"People misunderstand me or ask me to repeat myself a lot."
"I get nervous when I speak English with native speakers."

I specialize in teaching you to make and understand the sounds of English, so you don't have to deal with those thoughts any more.

About Saunatina
I’m a student and a teacher.

I love learning languages and have been through the same challenges as you on your language learning journey.
I know how frustrating it is to know what I want to say and be misunderstood or struggle to follow a conversation with native speakers.

I love to travel. I've lived in Mexico and Berlin and love meeting new people, getting to know the quirks of a new home.

I hate studying. I craft my lessons around the idea that "sitting all alone in my room" is such a waste of time when I could be out practicing with native speakers.

I had a wonderful time learning with Adriana before my recent trip to Italy. It was my first time, and I thought it would be nice to know some useful phrases before I went. Not only is Adriana an excellent teacher of the Italian language (I was only able to just tap into her expertise given the little time I gave us before my trip), but she also has extensive knowledge of Italian culture. My time in Italy was so much more meaningful thanks to our lessons. I can't recommend her highly enough! Buon divertimento!

I'm a certified teacher of English so I know perfectly well what phonetic and grammar features need to be explained and how to present them in an easy way. I'm fun to be with, very sensitive to my students' personalities and needs, excellent at encouraging them to talk and be creative. The key concept of my teaching method is communication + enjoyment. I firmly believe that every student is a bright student if the teaching material they are presented with is relevant and stimulating.

About Svitlana
I'm passionate about languages. In addition to my English, Russian and Ukrainian, I'm now learning Spanish. I also love reading. In 2016 I participated in an all-Russia literary translation competition held by the British Council - New Writing From The UK. There were about 5,000 applications, and my translation was awarded the first prize!

I was very lucky with the teacher, because I'm a little lazy by nature and I need to be constantly stimulated and keep my mind focused. Lana is just the teacher who can interest you so much that you will postpone all other things and immerse yourself in this wonderful world of English. Learning the language with her is captivating and effective - I started from scratch and I'm fluent and confident now! Thank you so much
