It is refreshing to meet people from all over the world and help them to succeed: * taught learners of all ages * taught to the TOEFL and IELTS for a large, international company * taught in a bilingual, Spanish-English classroom for many years * managed small groups in a Cambodian-English language lab * helped learners from all over the world in adult high school and community college * rated for the Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC) * instructed Russian individuals and groups online through work with Accent Center, Russia.

ESL (English as a Second Language) Lessons

I hired Joan to teach my aunt English about 4 months ago. While I have never sat in on one of their sessions, my aunt doesn’t hesitate to tell me how pleased she is with Joan. She always says Joan is so kind and a great teacher. She tells me Joan assigns her homework and each week she learns to express herself in a different way in English. Joan’s enthusiasm as well as her curriculum suggests Joan is very experienced at teaching English. I am most amazed at how quickly my aunt’s confidence in speaking English has improved. Thank you, Joan!

She is a so very much professional and relational teacher. My niece who barely speaks English has enjoyed her classes. If you speak English as a second language, hire Joan, she will help you through. She has a call and passionate heart as an English teacher. Strongly recommend her.

Excellent teacher with a great attitude. We needed lessons for someone that spoke no English at all and within a few hours we saw immediate progress. Very patient and friendly. Highly recommend!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Fees are quite reasonable. The preliminary Skype meeting is free.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We meet and ask preliminary questions. After knowing your needs, I suggest various ways we will handle the learning process. We have choices in textbooks, online sources, topics, etc.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have English and Spanish single subject credentials at the secondary level. I also obtained a bilingual/cross-cultural multi-subject credential by studying language acquisition, and how to teach it. Furthermore, I have permission to teach basic subjects at the junior college level. (Je parle francais, aussi.) My resume is available at the time we begin to know each other.
