About Dina S.

Learn real world English with a real world school director.

Because I started a career school, I focus on sparking discussions about real life situations that you may face: from job searches and the environment to what you like to do in your leisure time.

I'm a native New Yorker. I teach students of all ages in person and online.

I teach adults at Columbia University's Community Impact program. My students have settled in NYC from all over the world. I started a career school to train people in various professions and help them find jobs.

My teenage students in China are preparing to take the Toefl test, so they can get into a good American University. My elementary students love to tell me the main idea of a story they read.

My education background includes:
-Tesol Certificate
-Board of Education license
-Masters Degree.

I love to sketch and I’m on the steering committee of Virtual NYC Urban sketchers.

I look forward to discussing your personal goals in learning English and customizing classes to fit your needs.

Dina and I have taught many English classes together. Dina really cares about her students and makes them feel comfortable about practicing English in front of a class. She's a great teacher, and she uses many interesting subjects to help students learn and improve their grammar and vocabulary while having fun at the same time

Dina is very patient and dedicated with her students. I really learned and enjoyed a lot in each of her clases since they were very dynamic and helpful.
