- Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
As an ESL instructor, I pride myself on my patience and understanding for the student's learning style. Prior to our first lesson, the student will take a Memletics Style Questionnaire, which is an assessment that tells the student, as well as myself, what kind of learner he or she is. This allows me to customize the student's lessons to be as effective as possible.
Lessons focus on a blend of grammar focus, as well as communicative language, and everyday language. This allows the student to gain a real understanding of the English language that can be used when interacting with native English speakers.
The student will explain what their goal is for learning English, as the lessons will cater towards the student's goals.

My name is Mina and I am a current TESOL Masters student at Columbia University. I also have a TESOL Certificate from Columbia University, and teach at the Community Language Program at Columbia University.
I have taught ESL to students of all ages privately since 2017, with a focus on teaching adults. I also speak fluent German, and have a broad understanding of romance languages.
I teach students based on their learning styles, and customize lessons based on students' goals. The lessons blend grammar techniques with conversational techniques, in order to prepare the student for everyday conversation interaction. Lessons are interactive, in order to ensure effective acquisition of English as a second language.
If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a message!
I look forward to working with you.
