Geoffrey L.Book Now
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've been teaching English for 7 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of the American culture, study abroad, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro!
I love teaching, I can teach you at where you at and take you where you need to be. I only need a student with the desire to learn and to practice. I like to help students realize they have the intelligence and ability to solve the problems on their own, they just need the right direction. Nothin

Awarded Elizabeth Jones Scholarship from University of New Hampshire
Private ESL Teacher
I have been teaching English as a foreign language (EFL) in China for more than 8 years and as a second language in the U.S. for one semester. In my ESL class, I encourage students to be brave and to appreciate their accent and their multiple cultural backgrounds.
Speaking English with an accent is bravery. That's part of your identity. Having multiple cultural backgrounds means you are unique and you can bring that uniqueness in your writing and discussion. And think about that, you can speak language(s) other than English, you are very special!
Hence, in my class, I am very willing to help students build their confidence and strengths in their English learning. I am not a native English speaker and my English is not perfect, but I see myself as a multi-competent teacher. Over the years of language teaching experience as a teacher and learning experience (I can speak five languages) as a multi-linguistic learner, I believe I can help you achieve your goal under our mutual ...

Private ESL Teacher
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 ...

Jan has been tutoring our 12-year-old son in ESL for a few months now, and we have seen great improvement in his reading, writing, and verbal skills. Jan is always punctual and prepared. She brings visual aids and handouts suitable for his age and has introduced a fun word game to help him with his spelling, vowel and consonant combinations, and vocabulary. She is a great communicator and very pleasant to be around. I highly recommend her as a tutor for any age. Kazushi T, Beverly Hills"
When I moved from Russia to US in 2011, my English was at beginner’s level and I desperately needed to start speaking this language as soon as possible: especially for my job but also for my every day life.
I tried to take some ESL classes at local colleges and also study with a tutor but it did not work very well. Instead I became more afraid of making mistakes or saying something not correctly. I was frustrated and started to think that I am just not made for learning new languages.
I heard about Roman from my colleague who did intensive French language program designed and taught by mr. Nam. So he told me that Roman also teaches ESL. I decided to give it a try.
After three months of classes with Roman my English improved so much! From the beginning of classes I started to feel so motivated and everything was explained in really simple way. I don’t really understand how Roman was doing this but every class and even every homework was so interesting and so fun to do. I loved to hear myself speak English better and better. I started to use my english in any situation and I felt so confident.
Now, after four years living in US my English is much better but i know that the most important step in my progress was the program I did with Roman and I am very thankful for all his help."

The International English Language Testing System (also known as the IELTS) is recognized worldwide as the most popular English proficiency exam. Millions of people from around the globe take the IELTS every year, and unfortunately, many of them do not pass. There is one trait, however, that everyone who successfully completes the IELTS has in common. It’s something you might not expect. Our friends at Magoosh describe it in one word: confidence. Self confidence is key to passing t …

There are certainly some tricky words in the English language! And sometimes, people who have learned English as a second language mix up these words. Want to avoid making the same mistakes? Here are the words ESL learners misuse the most. Them, Those, and These "Them" is a pronoun that stands in the place of a plural noun. It is commonly used as the subject of a sentence, as in: Did you see them? or Have you seen the scissors? I used them to cut the labels off my T-shirts; now I can’t fin …
