I will support you and help you reduce your accent in your journey to speak English like a native. I have a Master's degree in Early Childhood Education and am a 1st grade teacher. I frequently am intervening with students to support their speech needs, as well as helping ESL students acquire proper pronunciation in English.

About Austin C.

Hello, my name is Austin! Teaching is my life's passion and it never feels like work to me! I am a 1st grade teacher and a lifelong learner. I have my Masters of Education in Early Childhood and will eventually be pursuing my Doctorate. I use research-based best practice to inform my teaching. I speak Italian, Spanish, and Greek. I love teaching reading, Italian, and ESL! I have taught in 1st Grade at both public and private schools, and I even worked for 1 year at an alternative school for at-risk students in grades 7-10. No matter where you start out at, I want to help you achieve your goals!

Great first lesson... a lot to absorb and Austin makes it easy and fun!.... This will be an exciting journey with him and I know his teaching method will take me to my goal this year - speaking conversational Italian.

Austin is passionate about teaching languages and is one of the most patient teachers! He is enthusiastic about ESL and truly loves what he does. He is kind and supportive and is sure to take great care of any student under him, seeing them through throughout all of their progress. Austin is of a kind and does an INCREDIBLE job!

Austin is a master reading teacher who understands the reading acquisition process inside and out, and develops students' skills via culturally responsive instruction that builds on what kids already know. He is fluent in multiple languages and has an extraordinary care and kindness for young students. I can't recommend him highly enough.

As a mom who started online reading lessons reluctantly after prior bad experiences with "zoom school", I was pleasantly shocked at how well my son responded to Austin's online instruction. My son made impressive progress and really liked his lessons. The instruction was fun and engaging, and his enthusiasm was genuine. I would highly recommend him as a reading tutor!

Austin presents great leadership and true passion to teaching. He cares about his work and more importantly, he cares about his impact with his students. He is a No-Brainer candidate for any teaching job. His ability to communicate in multiple languages and teach with Clarity is at a high level.

Austin was our interpreter on a trip to Italy, and he was an exceptional interpreter for us, even in some very stressful situations. He also helped translate emails for me. He's also very patient. I would definitely use him as a tutor!

I had the privilege of taking private lessons in Italian with Austin as my teacher. He is an amazing, encouraging, motivational teacher! I learned so much! I also work with him currently at the school he teaches at and I'm constantly amazed at how good he is with the kids and what a gifted teacher he is!
