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've been teaching private lessons since 2001 and have loved helping my students communicate in the language they want, make new foreign friends, and travel and study abroad. I went to Minsk State Linguistic University (Republic of Belarus) and earned a Master degree in Philological Sciences in 2003. 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. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Excellent instructor. Outstanding preparation. Developed a plan for the lesson and executed it very well with attention to my level of the language. Also, set goals and a general outline for the next lesson. Very friendly and supportive throughout the lesson.

Very impressed after the first lesson with Aliaksandra. Her French is fantastic as is her ability to engage my 6 year old, in basic intro lessons. We look forward to continuing his study with her!

I am a certified teacher for Virginia and California with experience in teaching English as a Second Language both in the US, Japan, and Korea. I have taught students of all ages and worked as a substitute for an ESL college in California.

As a certified teacher, I also have a CLAD certificate, which qualifies me to teach using instruction for English Language Development (ELD) as well as Specially Designed Academic Instruction Delivered in English (SDAIE). Beyond this I have my Master's degree in applied linguistics and English language teaching. My courses involved in this degree included: second language acquisition, English vocabulary: teaching and learning, approaches to applied linguistics, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, and intercultural communication.

I firmly believe that learning a language requires regular use of the language in the individual's every day life. Therefore, I like to tailor lessons to the student's needs and interests to encourage this.

About Meghan
I have been teaching multiple subjects for many years, but I specialize in ESL. I have taught all ages from 6-month-old babies to 60+ -year-old adults, and all different levels of ability. I have worked as an English teacher for several years in South Korea and Japan, and I greatly enjoyed my time there. I also lived in Nottingham, England, which is where I got my Master's degree from the University of Nottingham. I love to travel and explore other places and cultures.

I have a teaching experience of ESL of more than 24 years in Cuba. I have taught in colleges, for students with different academic interests, and for graduates who wanted to improve their proficiency in this language. I have also trained teachers of ESL at the language school where I worked.

In my teaching I use a communicative approach with meaningful exchanges but with a solid foundation of the formal aspects of the language too, so that students can move forward safely. I pay attention to individual differences so that each student can progress at his/her own pace with ease.

At intermediate and advanced levels I always favor the use of meaningful discussions and debate about updated issues, so that students learn how to express their opinions and ideas properly in different contexts.

I believe in creating a friendly atmosphere with meaningful human exchanges throughout my lessons.

About Carlos
I have been a language teacher for more than 24 years. I have a B.A. in English Language and Literature and my curriculum includes several subjects related to Spanish grammar, composition, phonetics and literature, so apart from being my native language (I am Cuban) I have the necessary academic knowledge to teach Spanish to speakers of other languages.

I have worked mainly with adults in colleges and language schools. At the university level I worked with students from different professional interests, so I am familiar with teaching the language for specific academic skills. I have also tutored individual adults.

In my teaching I favor the communicative approach with meaningful exchanges and with a solid foundation on the formal aspects of the language too. I also pay attention to individual needs so that students can progress at th
eir own pace.

At the intermediate and advanced levels I favor the use of meaningful discussions and debate about updated issues, so that the students can learn how to express their true opinions and ideas properly in different contexts.

I believe in fostering a friendly atmosphere and making the teaching experience a meaningful human exchange.

Yes, English can be fun! My ESL teaching method is adaptable to fit the student's needs, since I believe everyone has a different learning style and my lesson plans reflect that style. I have been teaching ESL for over 15 years - both in college and in high school. In addition, I have taught English abroad and I am fluent in a variety of languages.
I want my students to reach their full potential in learning English, but also to enjoy themselves. I want to help you build a solid foundation in the area of communication that suit your requirements - speaking, reading, or writing,(or a combination of all three). Send me an email !

About Ghida
I have been a professional educator for over 30 years, having just retired from 16 years public school teaching. I graduated from Edinburgh University, Scotland with a degree in Modern Languages, & from Catholic University of America with a PhD in Comparative Literature.

Teaching is my one great passion - I want to share my love of languages and literature with learners of all ages. I have taught elementary school children, high school students, college students and adults - including Franciscan brothers in a monastery!

My other interests include music, reading, gardening and travel. This year I hope to visit Portugal for the first time, and to also learn how to draw and do watercolors.
I am active in our local community including volunteering and mentoring in various organizations .

Our lessons are you focused. They focus on the topics, skills, and techniques that you want to master. No matter what level you are at, we will get you to the level you dream of being at.

About Shai
Hey! I’m the type of teacher that builds the class specifically what what the student wants to learn. Learning is about being challenged but also having fun. All lessons will be creative and effective. We will set goals in the beginning, check our progress throughout the middle, and see how we both measured up in the end. I can’t wait to take this journey with you!
