Day 1 of drumming lessons! David answered all my questions led the conversation and helped ease my need to be perfect! I am excited to practice the skills we worked on and excited to see where the next lessons go!! Thanks David for a great 1st experience!

DAVID IS AN OUTSTANDING TEACHER IN EVERY RESPECT. HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH SEEMS EXCELLENT, AND HIS INTEREST IN THIS LANGUAGE IS CLEARLY VERY STRONG. THIS ALLOWS CLOSE ANALYSIS OF SPANISH, AND STANDS AS A SIGNIFICANT BENEFIT TO THE DIDACTIC PROCESS. IN TURN THIS PROMOTES A SPIRIT OF LEARNING IN CLASS WHICH IS INFORMATIVE AND GOOD FUN. FINALLY HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH/ENGLISH COGNATES AND INDO-EUROPEAN ROOTS IS UNUSUALLY BROAD, WHICH MAKES LEARNING SPANISH WITH HIM EASY AND ENTERTAINING. I BELIEVE DAVID HAS A TRUE VOCATION FOR TEACHING, AND I HOPE I CAN GO ON WITH LESSONS WITH HIM FOR SOME TIME TO COME.

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 ...

Good teacher, good topics, and fun good classes.
Mariel
Marta was extremely helpful in improving my writing skills! I am in the process of applying for grad school, which requires a self-reflective and well thought out personal statement. Marta made sure I answered the prompt completely, helped make my paper more specific and meaningful, and corrected grammar and sentence structure to make it more readable. Her guidance made me more confident in my writing and expressing my thoughts. She is an excellent teacher!
Jin-Bo
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!

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!

"Marie to me is by far the best teacher on earth, better yet the best person I have ever met in my life. She was also my teacher in high school and I couldn't ask for a better human being to teach me about life, school and caring for others. she was always there for me even when I didn't want her to be. I guess you can say she was a second mother. She is kind, caring, understanding, and very passionate to teach her students. I promise you, having Marie as your teacher she will show you love, patience, and make sure if you have to, stay after school to learn and understand whatever subject that you are having problems with. I wouldn't say this if I didn't mean it, having Marie as your kids teacher will be the best thing for them. just make sure they don't get too close because she is that easily lovable and a great teacher."
