Laurel is one of the most professional, and open, friendly approaches to online education for language instruction. She is personable, and treats everyone with dignity and respect; including children. Laurel effectively uses online tools, for social media integration for education. I have learned a great deal working with her on radio-based education development.
My daughter started French tutoring with Laura at the end of January 2018 and she absolutely loves her tutoring sessions! Laura is wonderful at teaching language so my daughter understands it, she is able to clarify the lessons that she was taught in school. Laura is also very patient in her approach and adds an element of fun to the tutoring sessions. My daughter's grade has improved dramatically in French since her lessons with Laura. She has a warm, welcoming environment and is very easy to work with. I highly recommended her!!
Courtney is very good teacher. She helps students understand English language. During the lessons she was always perfectly prepared. She gave us good materials to learn English. Courtney approached each student individually. I liked a lot the time when Courtney was my ESL teacher.
Colleen is a consummate professional and also clearly has a passion for teaching. She is extremely patient and creates an atmosphere in which students are not hesitant to try new things, specifically speak a new language (which can be quite a scary thing for an older adult learner) with no fear of embarrassment. Her knowledge of current best teaching techniques is also evident through her lesson plans, which are never boring.
We met at a cafe. I got there about 10 minutes earlier than our arranged time, but he was already there, preparing for my lessons. He is committed to teaching English. He is very passionate and always makes sure if the student really understands what he says. He loves to answer any questions about English.
I have been working with Jill for a couple of months so far (and I'll keep working with her in the future). I'm originally from Spain but when I moved to Raleigh a few months ago I realized that, even though I had a good level of written English, my communication skills (listening and speaking) were not good enough. I reached out to Jill in order to help me out with this and from the very first moment, she pinpointed my weaknesses and prepared tailored lessons that are really helping me to articulate much better, speak more fluently and reduce my strong Spanish accent. Jill is very approachable, flexible with her student's needs, very committed and she has a great command of the language. I really like that she doesn't follow a book in her lessons and prepares ad-hoc materials based on my specific needs instead. Moreover her lessons are really enjoyable. I was able to see how my communication skills improved after a few lessons. In summary, Jill is being instrumental in my integration of the language, therefore I strongly recommend her as the great English teacher she is.
He was my English teacher in Spain during three academic years in college. Juan is really knowledgeable and classes with him are very enjoyable. Highly recommended.
Silvia has been teaching me Spanish for over a year and I couldn't be happier with my experience. She is a native speaker, and most importantly, she has a deep understanding of modern language teaching methods and the necessary emotional conditions for students to be successful. Teaching Spanish is clearly a passion for her. She constantly challenges me not only to learn the grammar and vocabulary of the language, but to use the mechanics in creative ways. She draws on all kinds of materials, including movies, short stories, and improv games and gets me to think critically about what I have seen, all while using Spanish. She is flexible and curious, and lessons are always fun.
Ms.Jami started tutoring my children (ages 3 and 4) in Spanish a little less than a year ago. During that time my son's natural interest for reading increased but decreased when working with mommy. Ms. Jami did some preliminary testing to see if he was truly ready and soon she began tutoring him in reading also. Initially, I was concerned that he would not be able to tolerate 30 mins of Spanish then 30 mins reading. However, he is able to maintain in seat behavior with a short break between subjects and the 60 min sessions go by quickly. There is an award system in place to manage behavior and fun interactive hands on activities (singing, music, tactile and visual stimuli) which sustains their attention. As an educator it evident that tasks are age appropriate and consistently tweaked to meet the needs of my children. My children are day and night in terms of personalities and learning styles. I am alway's amazed how Ms. Jami manages both of them in the same session. A sign of a great teacher and a gentle spirit. Ms. Jami presents with weekly lesson plans, carry over activities, affordable rates and she genuinely likes children. I highly recommended her, she is one of my best finds on Craigslist to date! The children love and respect her!

I am a Raleigh based ESL certified teacher, and I received my certification through Oxford seminars. I began my ESL journey in January as I want to eventually teach students overseas, in Europe, Asia, or UAE. While I am in the states, I would love to help local students who want to learn English as a secondary language. It can be difficult not speaking the native language in the country you reside. My goal is to assist you on your journey with learning the English language and becoming fluent in the language. My current client includes an adult Turkish native speaker who is eager to learn the English language.
I offer Chinese and English lessons, I am a native Chinese who can speak fluent English. I can teach both kids and adults.
I have been teaching piano for over 20 years. I would like to share my gift and passion of music with others. Let's start to make your dreams come true!
I am a NBCT with 18 years of experience in teaching ESL and Spanish. I can also tutor reading, writing, and math to students in grades K-8. I have experience teaching K through adult.
I'm an ESL teacher, cofounder of Films for World Peace, freelance translator, editor, ESL material developer and a writer. I have 21 years of experience in teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) to Pre-k to college level. I have been the Head of writing center at a reputable university overseas, taught English freshman writing, and edited/ composed/and wrote materials for different writing courses and skills. I am also a certified International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examiner.
I've been emerged in what I do, and work on it every day. I have performed with several chamber choirs, and state choirs, and have a lot of experience with learning, and performing, and just the art of it in general.
I prepare tailored lessons for each individual student based on their goals and needs.
I tutor all aspects of English -- essay writing, reading comprehension, grammar, vocabulary, and basic sentence structure. My focus has been with elementary school kids; however, I can easily tutor middle school, high school, and even college-level students. I am experienced, hard working, and receptive to receiving input from parents. I review grammar, parts of speech, assign writing exercises, and explain the benefits of variety in writing. I will review inferences as well as figurative language with the idea of incorporating simile, metaphor, hyperbole and personification into your student's writing. I also have a set program in place that demonstrates strategies for writing better sentences, progressing from grammar school level strategies all the way to high school level strategies, regardless of your student's grade level.
While growing up in Miami, my mother taught me to play the piano. I later took lessons at the University of Miami and Florida International University as well. My minor at the University of Miami was music. My major was journalism. I had the opportunity to teach English as a second language in Miami in adult education. I earned a certificate in teaching ESL at Duke University and have taught at Durham Tech as well as tutored privately, tailoring lessons to the needs of my students. I would enjoy accepting beginning level piano students, particularly children between ages 6 and 12. I'll teach them the notes and theory they need to get started. For ESL, I'm interested in adult students. Please contact me so we may have a free introductory 30-minute meeting.
