Private ESL Teacher

I was born and raised in the United States and have lived in Boston, Washington DC, New York City, and Minneapolis. I earned my undergraduate and PhD degrees from Yale University. I have taught ESL to students of all ages for more than 25 years. I speak English with a neutral American accent (no hint of a regional dialect). As a voiceover artist, I provide narration for TV & radio commercials, audiobooks, video games, and films. I’m able to recognize and target for improvement the specific sounds that cause a non-native speaker’s English accent to sound “foreign.” Our lessons will include not only proper grammar but also advanced vocabulary, use of idioms, and “terms of art” that apply to business, science, technology, travel, academic discourse, and other areas. I also offer unique strategies to prepare students for taking the TOEFL iBT exam. Let's get started!

I am a native English speaker, originally from Texas and currently living in Mexico City. I have been giving English lessons both in-person and online for over 3 years now (beginning in March 2020 I have changed to completely online lessons). In addition to being a personal tutor, I also currently work for the largest online teaching platform in Latin America and have taught THOUSANDS of students, of all levels, from all over the world.
I have recently renewed my TEFL/TESOL certificate with a 120-hour course and am very fluent in Spanish (I study at a Spanish language university in Mexico City and the majority of my students are Spanish speakers).

For each student I elaborate a personalized study plan, taking into consideration the expectations, goals, and necessities established in class. I teach a wide range of students but prefer advanced (B1/2+) students. I also give special classes focused on writing (academic or general). I try to make my lessons as engaging as possible, ...

Hi! My name is Lauren. I'm from the US and I'm 22 years old! I love helping kids learn English. I've been working with children for the past 6 years now, primarily teaching English but also providing other childcare roles. I've worked with teaching kids ages 4-16. I love making my classes very engaging and fun. I use lots of communication and feedback and individualize the support I offer to each student. I'm currently attending University while teaching English and have recently earned my TEFL certificate after a 120-hour course

I love to converse with people in all levels of language. I'm very patient with beginners. I like to teach in an immersive conversational style. For adults, this means conversations based on language level. For kids this could mean reading stories, doing crafts, or even playing games in English. I like to incorporate fun topics that each individual enjoys by getting to know them and talking about them when meeting together.

I make each lesson very ...

I base your lessons on your interests and needs - so they are customized to keep you interested. In the field of Education, this is called "engagement", meaning your mind and emotions have a *reason* to remember the English you learn from me!

But why believe what I say? I want you to pay me, right?! So, I'll let one of my students speak for herself:

Here's a fun review from KJ: "Orville is a great teacher! I have enjoyed both his private and group classes. And trust me, in almost 8 years of study, I have had a LOT of teachers. He’s extremely personable and has excellent tips for remembering new words and phrases!" - K.J.

To get results like the ones above (fun lessons and excellent tips!), contact me now to begin!

I am incredibly happy with my instruction. Orville has done an excellent job preparing materials for our lessons. He clearly has mastered teaching as well as spanish.

Orville makes learning Spanish a fun experience. An engaging teacher, he combines his love of teaching with humor and insights on the culture. I’m enjoying both studying a new language and working with Orville - it’s like learning with s good friend.
Brigitte
Orville is a wonderful teacher and brings the language alive for you as you learn together over zoom. He explains so much of why things are said a certain way, things that you just can't get from a language app. It's the best hour of the week! Highly recommend him for all levels.
