Hello, English-learners!

My name is Deanna and I am an American accent and business English coach certified in both ESL and PESL (Pronouncing English as a second language)!

After spending years working with hundreds of students as an ESL instructor in Asia, both in-person and online, I noticed that nearly all had not been provided adequate American accent training before coming to me, no matter their skill levels or professional ambitions. Tired of seeing these dedicated English language learners struggle to properly express themselves, I decided to move away from traditional ESL curriculum to focus on accent reduction.

My students hail from all over the world-- China, Japan, Korea, Brazil, Italy, France, Mexico, and more. Along with teaching business and general English, I have also worked as a TOEFL and IELTS prep teacher for all English subjects. I am also passionate about providing career training for expats working in the States, including interview skills, presentation prep,

I am an international businessman who lives in Spain but spends a lot of time out of country. My son Hugo was having difficulty with his English at institudo so I found Mr. Langton to come tutor him. Mr. Langton is such a wonderful tutor. He was very energetic and engaging. My son is no longer struggling with English after Mr. Langton's help.

"Tania has been working with me on my level. I have learned a lot and she has also refreshed my memory of what I had learned a few years back. Her classes are very practical. There is tons of conversation and grammar. I am able to apply what I learn right away. My comprehension has improved a lot as well. One of my favorite things is that she is a native speaker so I learn a more practical French with common day-to-day expressions, with many things I won't get from book. Very recommended!"

She understands the pain points which most of English speakers as second language usually experience and provide the effective guidance to improve themselves.
Shortly, she knows what should be taught and how to teach them.
Besides, she is very flexible and likes working with her students, which make the class fun."
