I have been teaching English as a Second Language on and off for years. I first started tutoring English while living in Nepal, Thailand, and India. I then received my Masters in Education with a speciality in Teaching English as a Second Language (ESL), also known as Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages TESOL), also known as English Language Learners (ELL). I have taught all ages of students and have worked with many adult English learners to perfect the English needed for their work situations or prospects or English needed for interacting with people at their children's school etc. I am happy to work with people who have specific needs as well as people who want to practice conversation in a supportive, safe, friendly, encouraging, and educational setting.

About Tara

I have a Masters in Education as well as having spent many years performing, teaching in one on one and group settings both privately and at music camps and festivals. I play and teach bluegrass, old time, blues, folk, Irish, and swing jazz styles. I like my students to really enjoy playing music an

Tara is a wonderful, enthusiastic, and knowledgable teacher! As someone new to mandolin, she quickly broke down the basics and was able to provide me with the foundations of playing bluegrass, blues, jazz, and more on the mandolin. I feel much more confident with my playing because of her and plan to continue coming back to learn more in the future! You'll also be guaranteed to laugh from her jokes, which lightens the struggle of learning an instrument : )

In just 2 of 5 lessons, I am already better. Tara has helped me build some basic chord theory and knowledge that I never understood as a G, C, D guitarist. I have not taken lessons since I was 10 and took piano - at 48, lessons are not so intimidating. Looking forward to learning more!
Stefan S.
Tara is a very knowledgeable and easy-going instructor. Her ability to teach theory in bite-sized chunks while keeping the lesson light and fun is extremely commendable. No grad-school music theory textbooks here, just color-coded fun. Her mnemonic devices are also hilarious. 6/5 stars

I had the opportunity to work with Douglas a number of times during my tenure as a part-time instructor at SCORE Educational Center. What I noticed about him was that he related very well to the children he worked with - he was a very enthusiastic tutor of English and math! He was most generous with the "high fives" and praise, and he also knew how to get students back on track if their focus strayed. Also, I saw him work very well with the parents; he always took the time to patiently explain lesson plans and students' progress between sessions. I have known Douglas personally for many years. He was the one who encouraged me to work at SCORE Educational Center given my background in Education - I thank him for that because I enjoyed my time there very much while I was able to stay (unfortunately, I had to leave that position for a full-time job elsewhere). SCORE Educational Center is no longer in existence. Douglas currently works as an independent tutor, and given how long I've seen clients stick with him, I have no doubt that they are enjoying the same level of attention and enthusiasm he provided at SCORE. When he speaks about the progress of independent clients and how they respond to him, it is with enthusiasm and a glowing smile. If you are looking for a tutor that is intelligent, dedicated, enthusiastic, and simply great with kids and parents, then Douglas is your man.

Whether English is your first language or you're learning English as a second or foreign language, I can help you meet your goals. As an English teacher, I have experience teaching English as a foreign language while I was living in Bogota, Colombia for six years. Being a native English speaker who learned Spanish through immersion, I have developed some unique skills to help my students master the English language and become fluent as quickly as possible. I have extensive writing experience and essay skills that enable me to help you or your child complete their English assignments and learn important linguistic techniques. For my graduate assistantship at USM, I was hired to write the program notes for the orchestra concerts and they were very well received by professors and audience members. I look forward to helping you with your English goals!

One of the most important ways that I support my students is by creating a positive learning environment. In my class, I encourage ...

I’ve been teaching English for several years and I can proudly state that all my students are always achieving their learning goals! I focus on all aspects of language on my lessons but especially on conversation because I believe it’s a primary language function. My goal is to teach English in a simple way so my students feel comfortable and natural using language in their everyday life. If you have any questions or suggestions about my lessons, please don’t hesitate to ask me!

Natalia is an excellent teacher. Her classes are energising and fun. I also really like the meditation at the end, it leaves me feeling very relaxed and centered. She lets you know how far to go in a pose if you have injuries/weaknesses, which is really helpful. She will re-position you to help you get that extra boost from a pose and has helpfully re-positioned me when I’ve over-extended. Highly recommended!
Brandan
Wow I really Enjoyed my session with Natalia this evening. She is such a delight to work with. She is very funny and humorous as well. While we were doing our poses, she was very supportive and very patient with me as well. Looking forward to having future sessions with her.

Natalia has enthusiasm for teaching and was prepared for my session her class always feels very thoughtful and I love the way that she brings yoga philosophy into each class. This was very important to me because I am new to yoga and I felt very informed. THANK YOU NATALIA YOURE AMAZING !

I excel in language arts, including grammar, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and writing - including essay writing, poetry and song lyrics. I also teach diction (pronunciation) and reading aloud/oral expression.
I am fluent in Hebrew, and studied Spanish for 3 years in high school. My background in these foreign languages helps me understand how to teach English to non-English speakers, as well as to native English-speakers.
As a tutor, I am patient, intuitive, friendly, and positive. :-)

so happy I chose to have Linda as my teacher ! she's patient with me (a beginner who does not always have time to practice regularly) and is super helpful with giving me tips and advice on how to be better. Linda can also play ANY song and has helped me learn tons of my favorites. We're working on Annie's Song right now and Linda has helped me not only understand how to play the notes but why we play them a certain way (heck yeah music theory !)

Linda is great. I left with a big smile on my face!

Linda is awesome. After 3 lessons I'm getting pretty good at a couple of basic rolls and have a song to work on. She is patient and knowledgeable, and has helped me get basic technique going. So far so good.

"I worked with Micah for about two years and I can say she is the best English teacher for foreigners I've ever met.
She understands the pain points which most of English speakers as second language usually experience and provide the effective guidance to improve themselves.
Shortly, she knows what should be taught and how to teach them.
Besides, she is very flexible and likes working with her students, which make the class fun."

"A knowledgeable and patient educator, Jesse has found a teaching style that perfectly balances challenge and inspiration. As a doctoral candidate in the sciences, it is important for me to assert my knowledge of a topic while capturing the attention of the reader. Jesse has taught me to transform bare facts and ideas into structured, sophisticated passages. He has played an active role in building my self-confidence and has helped me find an authentic writing voice to more clearly and elegantly express my thoughts. I am grateful to have his guidance and am eager to vouch for his excellence as a tutor."

"From the beginning, Micah proved to be exceptional! She was the only teacher who took the time to answer my long list of questions. She was clear and honest. Classes are planned according to your specific needs. She makes you want to learn more, motivates you and guides you in the best possible way. She also has a lot of patience and knows how to explain the lessons properly. Her teaching techniques have been very useful to improve my English pronunciation and I enjoy doing homework (cause it's fun and doesn't seem like homework at all). I highly highly recommend her!

English Language Conversations for Beginners

Although words may be limited and simple, it is still possible to enjoy conversations in English even if you are a beginner. I think that it’s essential to be able to express basic needs and to clearly express your identity. Let’s get started with the very basics and then we’ll build from there. Greetings and Introductions: When meeting new people you need to be able to greet them. If you are in an informal situation you might say, “Hey, I’m (name), nice to meet you.” In order …
