I think that Peter is one of the best English teacher I've ever had, I really learned with him, I used to be so shy when I talked english, but now I am not afraid to practice my english, I learned more about grammar. I wish that Peter could return to Mexico.
Shawn is a great ESL teacher. His ESL classes have been always fully booked. Once his English idiom class was opened for everybody, the classroom was so fully packed that there were a bunch of students still standing outside of the classroom in the aisle and listening to his class through the opened door. He has a teaching experience with students from diverse countries all around the world. He knows what his students need and his class is very clear. When he teaches, he is very patient to students errors but always provides accurate models. He has a great passion of helping students and always encourages and motivates greatly the students who want to learn. I have taken his ESL and TOEFL classes. He helps me raise my TOEFL score to 101 from 69. Thanks to him, I am a graduate student in NY. I am grateful and lucky to have him as my English teacher. Shawn is the best English teacher ever per se.
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.
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.
I’ve been receiving lessons from Luke for 6 months now (and still going!), and would highly recommend him. He’s professional, experienced, and flexible in his teaching style. Although our lessons have been conversationally structured (per my request), I’ve also enjoyed his strong command of Spanish grammar, and have found it really useful in learning Spanish as a beginner.
I offer Chinese and English lessons, I am a native Chinese who can speak fluent English. I can teach both kids and adults.
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 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.
I prepare tailored lessons for each individual student based on their goals and needs.
I specialize in helping out with French, English, and mathematics. I am currently a freshman at UNCW, and I have placed into higher levels than most students of my age in all three of these subjects.
