ESL (English as a Second Language) Lessons
Now I have been working towards my Grammar skills with him. He gives so much information about the English Tenses I have never known before. It has been a second time I hired Alexander to master my English skills. First time I took American accent program to improve my speaking and listening comprehension. It was very easy for me to work with Alexander because he is very open minded, professional and he gives very useful feedbacks about American pronunciation. I thank him for my accent! Now I communicate with no fear. Now I have been working towards my Grammar skills with him. He gives so much information about the English Tenses I have never known before. I highly recommend Alexander as your private professor to improve your English skills.Oct 1, 2020Verified

Prof. Alex is good at identifying the problem, as a non native English speaker it is helping me to concentrate on where to improve.Oct 5, 2020VerifiedAmerican Accent Program; ESOL.'s reply
Jaganmani, Thanks for your review. It was pleasant to work with Jagan in terms of English Tenses. Jagamani took several sessions and improved in the field of the Present Indefinite and Present Continuous; however, he didn't come complete the whole cycle of English Tenses. I am looking forward to continuing to work with you after you are done with issues 😉 Much success.

I often struggle with feelings of low confidence in my english speaking but having a conversation with Alex helped me change my mind completely. He gave me useful advice on how to build language learning confidence. Not only did he speak perfect American English but also he helped me boost my confidence in English!Sep 11, 2020VerifiedAmerican Accent Program; ESOL.'s reply
Thank you, Taehui! It was a short-term class with Taehui. First, when he requested for the orientation interview, I wasn't sure why he did it?! His motivation letter was well-written and he was looking for improving his public speaking. Anyway, I accepted his request. To sum up, he speaks English perfectly and with confidence. I was happy to help him understand that he doesn't need to improve anything and enjoy the way he is. I am having an amazing feeling that one session could improve his way of speaking. Enjoy as we spoke about 😉, and be a person you truly are! You deserve that!
To start off, Prof. Alexander has great teaching skills. I was hoping to learn the actual American accent, because I still lacked few crucial ingredients, that actually makes the accent sound American, but you get to know it only through courses. Luckily enough, Alexander understood my status in the accent and taught me exactly what I was completely oblivious to, before starting out with his course. The one-to-one classes helped me gain more insights and target the exact misconceptions I have had in my understanding. You are sure to have a transformation in your accent, provided, you put equal efforts from your side. As, practice is the main factor that determines your progress in this, to a large extent. What I appreciate the most is that he is so sharp at understanding everyone's encounter of difficulty, As a non-native English speaker, sometimes we pronounce word wrong in our mother tongue but we don’t notice to these small mistakes. Alexander showed me my mistakes and how to solve it! This classes are very valuable! I really enjoyed the time with Alexander who has a PhD in this field. I would highly recommend Alexander’s American Accent Program to anybody that wants to learn to speak like american people.Aug 18, 2020American Accent Program; ESOL.'s reply
It is really exquisite working with Yash, because there are several phonemes (sounds) that don't exist in the Hindi language and we are working towards adding these sounds into his speech. It is pretty challenging for him to develop some sounds, but he is pretty passionate to get the American pronunciation and he is working very hard to conquer the sound description and implement it into his everyday speech. I believe it makes him the best student! Thank you for taking the classes with me. I am waiting for our next class with interest and passion. Thank you for your review. Much success. Dr. Alexander Obskov.
I appreciate Dr. Alexander Obskov for his amazing job he has done with my accent. I took the whole course to improve my accent. There are 11 sessions that Alexander has designed perfectly to target the most important sounds in the American Language that you need in order to build good pronunciation. I went beyond and took Practical American Phonetics to bring my pronunciation to life. There materials that helped me practice my pronunciation and speak fluently. Alexander has been guiding me for the whole cycle of our training sessions, explaining the way the sound works and correcting my organs of speech all the time. I should never have thought that it would be so difficult and interesting to work on accent reduction. I say my word that without Alexander, I would’ve never reached what I have done so far already. I have had some experience with teachers to reduce my accent, but Alexander is the best in this way, to my mind, because he is explaining a lot of things that most teachers say , “please, listen and repeat” which wasn’t clear to me, and I didn't know that there is a perfect way to understand how the sound works. Excellent! Fantastic, and Simple! Thanks a lot for saving my sounding! I am still practicing my accent because it is a lot of work. Wish you all the best.Aug 3, 2020American Accent Program; ESOL.'s reply
Thank you, Ricardo for an amazing feedback! It was really great to teach you. Much success.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?For the committed students, I am looking forward to offering a very good discount.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?My objective as a professor of English is to motivate my students to develop their learning interests and critical thinking to establish a learner-centered environment in the classroom. I prepare lesson plans, always considering the interconnection between the student’s knowledge, culture, and learning abilities, the subject matter discussed in class, and current debates on social issues. I choose content and activities that are both significant and challenging for the students so that they are stimulated to think “beyond their comfort zone” and feel involved in their learning process. Similarly, the activities and class discussions I facilitate encourage students to make connections between my field of study and other disciplines. Interactive learning is also central to my teaching philosophy to promote reflective thinking and improve the students’ communicative and transcultural skills. The application of technology and computer-based material in the classroom, such as LMS Moodle / MOOC, Google Classroom, wikis, and YouTube are helpful tools in the promotion of meaningful learning through interactive work as well. My commitment and approach to teaching have been rewarded with the highest teaching evaluations as professors can receive in an institution mainly dedicated to outstanding teaching; I am consistently among the top 10% of all professors and teaching assistants. I believe that clear, open communication with students is a crucial element in helping them learn.
