As a highly compassionate and ESL teacher , with over 10 years of hands-on teaching experience, I am confident in my ability to become a valuable asset to your learning process. I have always enjoyed teaching English as a second language in language schools & colleges,with students of multi ethnic and diverse backgrounds. I have learned a lot from my students and their cultures which enriched my experience as an educator and as a person. The most joyful side of my job is the interaction with diverse students.I believe that my biggest and ultimate class achievement is building a rapport with my students which facilitates and plays a vital role in students’ engagement and motivation. My enjoyment and confidence in teaching has resulted in positive impact in increasing their curiosity, motivation, and the desire to be challenged. I strongly believe in differentiated learning whether it was in content, product or process to meet my students’ individual needs.
I am a very patient , competent & enthusiastic teacher. I try to break my lesson to the most basic elements for my beginner students to build their confidence and to Get the sense of achievement and then build his/her skills gradually to master the required level. Patience and persistence is the key to success for me as a teacher and for my students as well.

About Alia I.

Hello! My name is Alia and I'm an English teacher from San Diego, CA. I have been teaching English and writing for over than 10 years.

I offer English/ESL and writing lessons.I teach all levels: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced.
I’ve been teaching ESL (English as a second language) for 10 years now. I have a Bachelor degree in English Language & Translation, and TEFL (TEFL = Teaching English as a foreign language ). I am a n IELTS Band : 7 certified teacher.

I have taught many different subjects, including speaking, pronunciation, grammar, business English, academic writing, and more. I've also taught beginners through very advanced English learners, as well as a range of ages, from kids to adults (although mostly teenagers and adults).

I enjoy teaching everything, but especially grammar, so if you need help with grammar, I am here for you! 🤓

I have been fortunate enough to travel extensively and live abroad. From 2008 to 2018 I taught English at a university in Saudi Arabia, which was a wonderful experience. I've also traveled to Amman, Jordan and taught their for almost two years. Having lived in other countries, I understand the struggles associated with communicating in a foreign language.

As a teacher, I am friendly, patient, flexible and kind (and funny, I hope!), but I also care very much about my students' learning and I create lessons that are challenging but interesting, fun, and connected to the students' real lives and/or their specific goals. I also encourage students to talk as much as possible!


In addition to teaching, I’ve also taught writing for many years at the university & college levels. Strengthening your writing skills is empowering; it gives you the tools to be able to express yourself better. I love being able to help people do that.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to meeting you!

Alia M. Ismael
