Private ESL Teacher

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish as a foreign language, Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction and I am a native speaker. I have more than 3 years of experience teaching students language both as a tutor and a classroom teacher. I want to provide you with a supportive environment where you can learn and reach your potential just like I have done in the past with former students. I believe this is crucial in order for learning to happen.

I use techniques that are researched based as well as techniques I used to learn my languages. As a language learner myself, I understand how challenging it can be to learn a new language! Let's work hard together to improve!

Hello,

Do you want to take your speaking abilities to the next level, figure out how to convey ideas easily and reduce your accent? My name is Safoora S. I am a foreign language trainer. Teaching English is my passion. For that reason, I have had the privilege of being a level 5 certified TEFL teacher with online/onsite English teaching experience.

I understand firsthand with 5 years of experience what it's like to learn a second language and this is why I have studied English in depth and detail. Additionally, I am fun loving and I fancy meeting all individuals who really want to learn English.

Favorite quote: "No matter how talented you are, effort will always help you to be more successful"

I'll show you how to do all that! Book a class today, and improve your English abilities tomorrow.

I can't wait to meet you in class!

Become a more natural and fluent speaker and writer in English! I've helped many students, and I can help you, too. Book a lesson today, and I'll show you how!

If you're like a lot of my students, you want to improve your English because you:

- have a job interview in English
- you want to apply for a promotion at work
- you have to take an IELTS exam
- you want to attend university or grad school in an English-speaking country, but your English isn't good enough yet because...

you're still translating in your head.

or it takes you a long time to think of what you want to say, and you still make a lot of errors when you speak.

or you use the same simple vocabulary words over and over in your speaking and writing.

or you've taken the IELTS exam a few times already, and haven't gotten a score you want.

I completely understand how frustrating that can be! So, what's the solution? Customized lessons with a dedicated teacher who uses authentic, interesting ...

Marta is an amazing teacher. She is patient that she would always listen very carefully to what I was going to say. One of our common interests is watching movies and series, so we spent a lot of time discussing them and exchanging our favorite shows. The classes with Marta were always helpful and relaxing. I really enjoyed the lessons and learned so much from her!

Marta is a kind, pretty, patient and sophisticate tutor. She is always ready to help students. You can discuss with her for any subject, that’s why i mentioned her as sophisticate. I have never understood how time flies so quickly during lessons. I think she has a special ability on teaching.
