Do you want to express yourself in English with fluency, accuracy, clarity, and confidence? I would love to help you. Mastering the English language may be tough, but it can also be great fun. Time spent together working towards achievement of your English language goals will be a sound investment in your personal, academic, and professional success. What are my qualifications? I hold a Master's degree in Adult Education with a concentration in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) and have over fifteen years of instructional and administrative/advisory experience in the field.

I look forward to hearing from you.

I am Italian, and some years ago I went to NY to study English as an ESL student. I spent six months in the school, and I still remember those months as some of the best ones in my life. It was memorable not just because of the experience, but also because my then (very) poor English improved a lot, making me the person I am today (English is essential in my present work in Italy.)
Maggie is absolutely one of those who made this possible: she was one of my teachers, and she was simply great! She helped me so much in those months, and I really enjoyed following her classes. I think she is a brilliant, naturally gifted educator, enthusiastic and accurate. She is professional, serious, and her methods are simple and effective. She can always find ways to make things easier, even the most difficult ones (grammar for example!), so that meanings/concepts/rules would become clear and fixed in our mind.
She is also a very nice and generous person, always available to help: she cared so much about our education, making sure nobody was left behind, and every time I needed some extra explanations, she was always there to give more information, making examples taken from the everyday life, using tricks, songs, newspaper articles, connecting so theory to practice.
My English and I owe her a lot, and I’m sure your experience with her will be as enjoyable and rewarding as mine!

I have worked with Maggie Hamble for over ten years, briefly as a teaching colleague at a private language school and more extensively when she was my supervisor at a university ESL program. Maggie will bring out the very best in you. She comes from a family of educators and has nearly two decades’ experience in adult education. She’s helped hundreds of students from all over the world achieve their language learning goals, whether accent reduction, academic writing, English for business, or just for fun. What I love most about Maggie is how clearly she explains the most confusing grammar topics and how she encourages her students to identify and correct their own errors. Patient but firm, friendly, and always professional, Maggie sincerely delights in watching her students improve. Working with her, you will master English grammar and find yourself speaking more fluently and confidently than you ever thought you could.
