I have taught English to children and adults for over 5 years in Thailand, South Korea, Japan, and online. I am also a writer, researcher and web developer.

On my website you can find lots of useful information, articles, study tips, and flashcards to help you learn English faster.

My Study methods
I will teach you to learn English at your MAXIMUM speed. I will support your learning both during and after the lesson. You get full support from my the tutorials on my website and a digital flashcard system.

My method of studying English is very fun! You will learn from English movies, TV shows, videos on the internet and comics! You will never get bored studying English with me.

My daughter has been taking Chinese lessons with Nancy once a week for the last month. Nancy is very attentive and very nice teacher. She is so patient and careful, she corrects every grammar and pronunciation mistake and I like her doing that as it is very important to do so from the beginning. Explanation of the material is very simple and clear which makes the learning process easy. My daughter enjoys her classes very much.

Always patient with you when you are learning, really try her best to teach based on your interest and strive to direct the lesson towards what you want to learn rather than follow a standard curriculum or structure.

About Maxmillion
I am very proud to have been born and raised on the lovely island of Guam! I have been playing guitar, bass, and drums since I was 15, and have had a passion for music since I can remember. In 2007, I earned my associates degree in music from Musicians Institute Hollywood. I have had my music placed in popular television shows, such as “The Real World” and “Road Rules," as well as the film “The Tested.”

I previously played guitar in a project called Xolie Morra and the Strange Kind. We were featured as the musical guest on the popular late night talk show, "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" in January 2014. We were also featured on the local television programs "Art Zone with Nancy Guppy" and "New Day Northwest." We are also featured on YouTube as sponsored artists on EMGtv and Blue Microphones. I also have had the opportunity to share the stage with
Crosby Stills and Nash, John Mayer, Don Felder, Brandi Carlile, Russell Ferrante, Travis Carlton, and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band.

Guitar is my main focus, but I am also comfortable teaching bass and ukulele. I love all styles, and specialize in rock, blues, funk, pop, reggae, metal, and acid jazz. I have experience teaching students of all ages (as young as 4 years old) and am currently an active teacher. I am also fluent in Japanese.

Max is very knowledgable about music and it's theories. However, he also understands where his students are and what they need. He made lessons in guitar applicable at my level. He is very patient and works well with kids. You can tell he genuinely cares for people and wants them to improve!

Max is a great bass guitar teacher. You can tell that he has a deep fundamental understanding of music and he presents lessons very clearly and at a manageable pace. My bass playing, music theory, and music appreciation have improved dramatically under his instruction.

This vibrant young lady was just simply a blessing: knowledgeable, dynamic and simply a pleasure to be around and in-take information from. My child was simply taken by her and was, as it seemed and looked to me, craving every following visit from her. She was able to commence, see through and complete the entire task I set in front of her-for my child to be ready for the next stage in her education. My son is going to be in need of similar educational assistance soon-I have already discussed his lessons with Polina and will definitely call upon her once the concrete dates arise!
I strongly recommend this highly gifted, professional and serious individual to anyone looking for a tutor, in more subjects then one, that can captivate and deliver results, not just talk!

About marc
Hi guys!

I am both an English and music teacher who lives in America at the moment. I both work as an English teacher for refugees near Seattle as well as play as a professional musician. I have been teaching for about 5 years both in America and in Europe. My most recent teaching abroad was in Italy, where I taught Italian and English to refugees in Milan. This has allowed me to teach to people from over 50 countries and from all sorts of age groups!

I am a native-English speaker so I can help you with cultural aspects of the language as well as the basics of grammar and pronunciation. I have a TEFL certificate as well as well as a C1 language proficiency in Spanish, Italian, and German if those languages interest you as well! I have also been a professional musician since I was 14. I play bass, piano, and drums, and can teach all
of these instruments as well as music theory!

I mainly want you guys to succeed and have fun learning so I try to have a fun learning environment, and I am very open to talk and teach nearly any subject that y'all are interested in!

Mr. Marc was an extremely enthusiastic instructor that made me excited about all of the material he taught me. He is very resourceful and uses a unique approach that I never had encountered from any other instructor. He is very kind and knowledgeable in many subject areas, and is an incredible musician. My playing improved tremendously under his instruction. I would HIGHLY recommend him to students of any age!

I teach any levels and I teach for any goals. If your goal is to just visit Japan and learn conversation, I will teach what you need to know to get by in Japan. I am all about making sure students are following when I am teaching. If I notice that when a certain teaching style doesn't work for a specific student; I change it up and I observe to see what type of teaching style will work for that specific student. Same as materials; if i notice that the materials I provide doesn't work for that student, I will change it to suit the students needs.

About Yilin
Highly experienced and engaging teacher that enjoys seeing students learn and grow. I try to bring out the best in my students by focusing on their areas of strength and encourage them to develop and use their strength in the process of acquiring new knowledge. If a student is a visual learner and is struggling with fractions, then I will use real life example of cutting a pie to help the student understand the concept. Each student has their own unique learning style. I try to adapt my lesson plans based on the student's style. Some like to learn through practice, so I incorporate mini practice sessions in my lesson planning. Watching each student learn, grow and improve is a truly rewarding experience for me.
