This is a class for Russian speakers to learn English.
My very first student was Russian-speaking, to whom I taught English. I am fluent in both languages, and enjoy assisting others in their language learning process!

About Julia
Hi! My name is Julia A. I have been tutoring students of all ages and skill levels at learning centers, colleges, libraries and schools since 2008.

My instruction extends nationwide, with students from all corners of the US, utilizing online tutoring services such as Skype.

My main field of study is in MATH (trig, algebra, geometry, precalculus), CHEMISTRY (high school and college), and PHYSICS (high school and college).

I completed my Bachelors in Physics and Mathematics Education at Hunter University and have gained experience with both in-person and online group instruction and curriculum development.

Some examples of the students I have tutored are: Elementary school students preparing for State competitions and exams; High school and College students in preparance for entrance exams, and in subjects such as algebra, geom
etry, trig, precalc, chemistry and physics.

I do Regents and SAT/ACT prep for these subjects as well as the GRE (These are NYS based High School Preparatory Exams - do not hesitate to ask should you need assistance with the ones offered in your state/country).

In addition, I am thorough and meticulous, by paying special attention to how the student grasps information and retains it, I prepare individualized handwritten reviews, with supplemental material found online and in texts.

I assign homework to keep my students ahead of what is going on in class, and a visual and intuitive understanding of the concepts I present is important to me, so I use visual aids (diagrams and interactive models) to help my students integrate what they learn with me in real life situations.

My instruction includes:
1. Tutoring based on the school curriculum
2. Instruction on the home-schooling curriculum
3. Assisting those with a gap in going back to school/university.

I start with an assessment based on what the student has trouble with or last remembers covering in school, and prepare material going from there.

As a result, my students all have improved grades without any need for cramming before tests, and I encourage a stress-free and easygoing learning environment.

My lessons are fun and enthusiastic - these subjects are beautiful and will help open your mind to new ways of thinking - whatever your field of study!

Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools.
I see marked improvements in their grades for this past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise.
Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough.

I've been teaching English since 2002 and my students have gone on to develop travel abroad, participate in and win different competitions and contests, and build their careers. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to communicate in it in everyday life and as time goes on you'll be able to make new friends and study and work in it. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Aliaksandra
Hi, there! My name is Aliaksandra and I can't wait to meet you!

I'm a responsible person always ready to help and my teaching style is students’ needs oriented, cooperative, and activity-approached. My motto is Practice makes perfect.

My 8 year daughter is taking one-on-one French lessons with Ms Aliaksandra. She has taken 3 lessons so far and loving it. I was invited to observe her last lesson and I am absolutely impressed with Ms Aliaksandra’s teaching. She speaks only French during the lesson, exposing my daughter to the language. She started with everyday things but is also using them in simple sentences. My daughter loves her lessons and can’t wait for the next one. She practice at home as well so she can make her teacher! We are glad to have found Ms Aliaksandra.

Being able to effectively communicate with others is the first step to building genuine relationships with them--whether casual, personal, or work relationships. My goal is to give my students the tools you need to communicate with others in English, so you can achieve your unique goals as a capable English speaker. I seek to genuinely listen to and learn from my students, not just teach. I aim to make your learning experience fun and joyful because learning a new language opens up new worlds and new possibilities and should be enjoyable!

The typical class length is 90 minutes. If that is too long for your busy lifestyle, please choose the mini class of 45 minutes. Connect with me today!

About Christelle
I love creating: writing, knitting, seeing new things come to life and thrive. I have extensive experience teaching women's health classes and counseling in natural women's health, because motherhood courses through my veins. I am also a published author and speaker.

I love to encourage and support my students and build into your lives -- to see you make goals, work hard to achieve them, and then succeed! If you are a student who will work hard -- and have fun doing so -- and want a coach who will cheer you on, then I am the teacher for you!

Baby Sign Language classes are either caregiver and child or caregiver alone. Baby Signs classes are appropriate for young children age 5 years old and under. Health coaching services are for women age 18 years old and up. My ESL classes are for women who are at least 18 years old.

As we took a childbirth class from Christelle, you might say we took one of the most important classes in our lives from her! We honestly believe if we had not taken her class we would not have had nearly so positive an experience in natural childbirth, so much credit is due to her. Christelle prepared thoroughly for all our lessons, included interesting activities and personal anecdotes. Most importantly, Christelle made it clear that she cared not only about our grasp of the content but also about us as people. That made all the difference.

I used to struggle a lot when I started learning English by myself. That is the reason why I want to help out with people want to reach higher education but struggling with English. I may not be the best helper but once I start doing something, I put all my heart in that. So I'll make sure that I would help one out with the best knowledge and ability of myself.

About Anhphuong
My name is An Huynh and I'm 22. I come from Vietnam and has just been in the US for over a year now. I choose to help people with ESL because my cousin had to spend 2 years at NOVA just studying English, which I think is time-wasting. For that reason, I want to help people who want to earn higher education but having problem with English. I already had Toefl iBT and SAT. Though my grades are not on top, my English skills have improved beyond my expectation. That is the reason why I can go straight to NOVA without having to take any additional language classes.

Work on your English in a safe, playful environment. No matter your level, we'll start with your language goals and work from there. I'm a certified TESOL instructor and I have a master's degree in Medieval History.

I'm skilled in academic and professional writing and also have experience working with complete beginners.

With consistent practice we can achieve anything together!

About Amy
I believe that to learn a language it's important to feel safe and relaxed. If we build a positive relationship together, we'll be on our way to achieving your goals. I promise to work as hard as you do!

I started teaching English while I was living in London for my Master's degree in Medieval History. I met people from all over the world and fell in love with the cultural exchange that comes with teaching a language.

I have a certificate in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) from DePaul University. I am also a volunteer English instructor at St. Joseph Services in Humboldt Park.

I live in Ukrainian Village with my husband and two cats, Tommy and Luna. If you chose to come to my apartment for lessons, you'll be able to meet them!

My goal is to create a safe, judgement free environment for my students to learn in
. I've worked hard to learn other languages myself (Spanish, German, and I'm working on Polish!), so I know how frustrating it can sometimes be to express yourself in another language. Teaching one on one is a collaborative effort and I will work hard to find a teaching style that is tailored to you.

The Oxford Dictionary defines the word "idiom" as a: "group of words established by usage as having a meaning not deducible from those of the individual words (e.g. over the moon, see the light)." This means that English idioms should not be taken literally, because their meaning is metaphorical. You don't really wish someone would “break a
