Juliet is adept at explaining and teaching advanced English skills and concepts; she really helped my nephew tackle the SAT and AP Language and Compositions exams. He performed much better after he had worked with her! Her engaging personality and well prepared lessons kept him on track!
With a growing business, especially throughout LATAM, Spanish comprehension quickly became a must for me. I have been a student of Fabian for over 4 years and his coaching style has enabled me to not only comprehend Spanish, but also has accelerated my conversational proficiency. Fabiano has also been instrumental in translating many time sensitive legal documents from Spanish to English. I would highly recommend Fabian for Spanish lessons regardless of proficiency and also recommend his translation services.
My experience learning English with Lynne is the best I've ever had. After many years of studying in schools in México, I felt that I was not good for English. However, with Lynne I learned a lot in a short time, her style is great because she teaches you in a fun way and with everyday things that are really useful . She is a committed teacher who strives in making their students learn and improve their English skills. She is also an intelligent and educated person, with great sense of humor and enjoys meeting people, their culture and way of life, which makes each class a mutual learning exchange. If you are looking for a good English teacher, Lynne Feldman is the best !!! Erika P.
I'm a 29-year-old consultant, and as a professional, I'm invested in improving my business writing. Jenny has been teaching me the finer points of the English language, making my writing more impactful and effective in the professional setting. Jenny is highly organized and each week prepares a great lesson plan with supporting materials to work through. Currently, I've had 5 lessons with Jenny and my writing has vastly improved. I highly recommend Jenny for anyone looking to improve their knowledge of the English language, whether that be fundamental grammar or more advanced, stylistic writing techniques.
Angeles worked as a tutor at the library in SWC. She was always patient and helpful with all the students. Angeles assisted th students on multiple subjects: Spanish, English, computer software and Math, and Biology. I would recommend this tutor!
I do not take Spanish lessons from Rosa, but attend the Club De Lectura book club. I love it! Rosa keeps the discussion going by excellent questions, but never takes over. She also gives us important information about the authors we read in order to enhance our understanding. I am the poorest Spanish speaker in the group, but my opinions are never made to feel less valuable. I love just hearing the good Spanish of the other members and learning more each week. I would recommend any endeavor presented by Rosa most highly. You won't be disappointed!
I started spanish in a class-group environment and the pace wasn’t just working for me. I then started private lesson with Laura and immediately improved my conversational skills. Laura is very patient and dedicated, flexible in her educational approach so she tailored the lessons to my goal (an upcoming trip to Mexico). Laura is also very personable so the lessons, most of the times, turned into very pleasant conversations in spanish which allowed me to progress quicker. Overall Laura is a fantastic teacher and I highly recommend her.
I've been having tutoring sessions with Elena for the last couple of weeks now and I can already see an improvement in my ability to understand and speak Spanish. She's a highly knowledgeable and patient tutor, and even when I make a mistake, she'll explain what to say and then connect it back to what we're already talking about. In that way, Elena is also really thorough, and makes sure that I understand a concept before moving on to something new. I also found her teaching style to be unique and really helpful, in that we'll actually have a conversation in Spanish, which would lead to a lesson or how to fix this or that. Although somewhat unorthodox, I found it extremely helpful, since I not only learn grammar, or verb conjugation, but I actually get to practice what I learned in real conversation. Since I've always been one to focus on the real applications of things, using real conversation is really helpful and makes the lessons all the more engaging and exciting. The pacing of lessons is also really nice and I'm often surprised by how much we actually cover in an hour. She´s the best Spanish tutor I've ever had and I'd highly recommend her to anyone trying to learn or become better at Spanish.
What a great opportunity this has been to learn with a native speaker from Spain! Paula is a highly compassionate teacher and offers us a great mix of conversation and study. I am very impressed with her and her teaching methods are outstanding. She makes the classes interesting and a great learning experience. Spanish lessons with Paula are the way to go!
I have taken private lessons with Evelyn to refresh my advanced conversational skills. Evelyn comes prepared to our session, and always make sure to take you out and over your comfort zone. She makes the session interesting by introducing reading material on different subjects, discussing them with open end questions, analyzing the grammar and applying lessons learned to your own individual situation. She makes learning fun and challenging at the same time!
Ivonne has been teaching me Spanish for a few months. My level of Spanish was below remedial and she has been very patient with my slow learning speed and continues to adapt her lesson plans to my strengths and weaknesses. Being a native English and Spanish speaker, Ivonne excels at communicating her lessons and providing explanations and clarifications to students with diverse levels of fluency.
Gloria and I worked together for several months to polish my conversational skills and develop vocabulary specific to my line of work. She was patient, knowledgeable, attentive, and engaging!
I was working as a high professional at a very prominent company when my colleague offered English lessons to improve my communication skills. After intensive screen among high ranking candidates, she found Alice. Alice made me understand what was wrong in my communication style. She had the most correct way of addressing the core of the problem without affecting my feelings. Although she was not an expert in cell based assays, Alice was capable of providing an advice on how to structure my thoughts and provided directions on how to compose a good e-mail. She made me feel capable of blogging and reaching wider audience. Alice’s advices and insights moved me at deeper level. After her teaching I was finally capable of "decomposing" my cultural heritage and composing myself again within a new cultural landscape. Alice made me believe in myself "in English". I am not reading “for my soul” only in my mother tongue anymore but also in English. After her lessons, I am capable of reaching to people for whom I care the most: my beloved friends and coworkers.
We hired Angela in September to tutor our 10-year-old son. Immediately, we were impressed with how well she got along with him. The first session, he asked if she could stay longer! Throughout several months of Angela working with our son, we have been very pleased with her flexibility of scheduling (sometimes we had to change dates and times due to afterschool appointments), punctuality, and reliability. We learned that when Angela says she will show up, she does on time and ready to get to work. Whenever we needed to get in touch with her, Angela was available by text or phone call, and she responded promptly. She also gave us valuable feedback on how the tutoring session went, so that we could address any issues immediately. Our son's test scores have improved and we couldn't be happier. We have tried other tutors Angela is the best!
Excellent person, really the time to help me with what i needed and spend time to go through all that was needed i recommend him to anyone looking to learn any subject like salsa english french latin
Buongiorno! Buenos Dias! Hello! I am an expert foreign language teacher with over 15 years of experience teaching, learning and using languages for business: writing, editing, interpreting and translating. I am passionate about languages and how they enrich our lives. I approach language teaching or learning contextually, rather than grammatically, with a student-centered focus. What does that mean? That means my teaching method is highly interactive, and I will get you talking right away, and learning to use and appreciate a language through topics and materials relevant to your life; and through music, film, culture, and real-life content, based on your needs and interests. See my website for student testimonials and my tips on language learning. I offer: * Private Lessons in person and live online * Travel workshops * Classes * Weekly Italian Study Group I teach: * Adults * Children * Students * Home-schoolers * Business people * Travelers I am proficient, fluent and have mastery in Italian, Spanish, and English. I have lived, worked and taught in the U.S., Spain, and Milan, Italy, where I began my teaching career and resided for 9 years. I hold a current California Teaching Credential, and am up to date on the latest foreign language teaching methods and theories. To verify my license from this site, see link on the right, and use the name Jodi L Hahn. Pricing: * Individual private lessons online cost $30.00 per hour. Packages Per Hour Cost Save 5 lessons $29.00 $145.00 $5.00 10 lessons $27.00 $270.00 $30.00 20 lessons $25.00 $500.00 $100.00 Individual private lessons in person cost $40.00 per hour. Packages Per Hour Cost Save 5 lessons $39.00 $195.00 $5.00 10 lessons $37.00 $370.00 $30.00 20 lessons $35.00 $700.00 $100.00 Advantages in learning online: I find that learning online is actually very enjoyable and effective. The advantages of learning a language online are many; first of all, results. Many online students report they are better able to concentrate on the lesson. During our classes, I'll have you talking, listening, reading and writing. Hearing the live voice of a proficient speaker through your headset makes a huge difference. There are no interference from classmates or external noises to interrupt you. Plus, I use the chat board to type new words, questions, and sentences to accompany the words that are spoken. Skype even allows me to share files, views of my screen, and guide you to useful sites on the internet.
I assist students with all English/ESL test preparatory courses and all levels of English. I have 17 years of teaching experience. I have a master's degree in education/English and a teaching certificate that is allowing me to instruct in public and private instruction settings.
I have lived and taught English abroad in Costa Rica and Brazil, as well as traveled throughout Europe and South America. I am fluent in Spanish and Portuguese. For the past couple years, I have been teaching kids classes (as well as tutoring adults) anything from creative writing to art, Spanish and geography. I am a very enthusiastic and creative person, which helps me bring very unique and fun activities to class. I always accommodate my lessons based on the student's level and specific need or interest just like for example, if you need to learn English for business or work or perhaps you need to learn some conversational Spanish for traveling. Everyone is unique so I like to make all of my lessons unique as well. No matter what, we always have a good time!
I provide lessons to beginners of the English language, especially Asians. I have many years teaching English as a second language to Vietnamese students.
Just a soon-to-be high school graduate who is saving money for college through what I know best, which is giving lessons in Spanish, English, and guitar.
My name is Stephen Riley, and I am a traveling music and English teacher. Along with my wife, Annelisa Riley, I have been working for the past two years to hone in on what makes the English language easy for some and hard for others. After working in China for a year teaching English to students ranging from age 1-12, Annelisa and I began dreaming and scheming of ways to improve the process of learning English while having a lot of fun. Both Annelisa and I have been deeply moved by music and involved in the creation of music from early in life. Now, we believe we have found a way of teaching that speaks for both us as teachers and you as students. Everyone loves music, and everyone needs to communicate to have long-term success. Our curriculum uses classic folk music and contemporary songs to bring the student deeper into the English language. By focusing on the poetic lyrics of folk music, we are able to bring the student a more compulsory understanding of how to form sentences and adequately express themselves. Then we begin working with the student on learning to play some of these songs, focusing on guitar chords, strumming patterns, and for the more experienced students, harmonica playing. Finally, we work with the student to create an original piece of music in English that they can be proud to call their own work of art. Riley School of American Folk Music is not just about learning to speak the English language. It is about learning to create.
