I have a master's degree in Communication, a bachelor's degree in business, and years of experience working with students who speak English as a second language. I love helping students improve their English speaking and pronunciation, reading, writing, spelling, grammar, listening, and/or conversation skills, and I can also tailor lessons to help you learn vocabulary for a specific job or school field.

I have worked with Mackenzie over the years, and she is such a talented linguist. Mackenzie's command of language, in general, is outstanding, and she both speaks and writes beautifully. Mackenzie is a great choice for aid with either Spanish, English, or both.

Whether you are just starting your journey with the English language or feel like you are fairly fluent, I can help you master many of the concepts that make English so difficult for those who don't speak it natively. Having studied German, Koine Greek, and Ancient Hebrew, I can help you navigate my mother tongue by comparing it to your own language and understanding the differences. Those languages gave me a much firmer grasp on my own language.

About J.J.

My name is JJ and I love music! Music is not only what got me through the tough Jr High and High School years, it also got me through college and paved the way for all of my career moves ever since. Whether it was repairing instruments, teaching others how to repair instruments, or leading a worship

JJ went above and beyond teaching - he helped fix my saxophone, transcribed music for me, and worked with me on scheduling issues.

I was only able to complete five lessons, but I feel like I improved and now I have a completely new way of practicing. I look forward to working with JJ again in the future!

Great English Teacher

Jan is a great teacher, she understands what you need for making your English language better. I have been her student for about six months, and she taught me so much and now my English is really good. With Jan you save money and you learn in the best way ever. She loves what she is doing and she is very smart. I shopped a lot for a private teacher on the internet and in social media and I am so happy I found her. My English now is great and I loved my classes with Jan. The time went very fast and I learned more and more with her about the English language. Sam S, Los Angeles

Excellent teacher!

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
Janice A.
Thank you, Jan!

We would like to thank Jan for her professionalism and her kindness. My wife and I had great English lessons with Jan for one month in LA. Jan managed to make the lessons very interesting, mixing general conversations and specific grammar rules, idioms, and vocabulary teaching. We were so happy with our experience with Jan that once back home, we decided to continue our lessons remotely via Skype, a way to benefit from Jan's great teaching experience anywhere in the world. We strongly recommend Jan.

I would really love the opportunity to help you improve your English abilities. I believe in using examples, scenarios, conversation and visual aids to keep the class interesting. I listen to students needs in order to let you guide the lesson topics to where your learning needs and goals will be achieved. I am just a subject matter expert and a facilitator of your learning. I believe strongly in the value of education, self-learning and continuous learning. You will be a better learner if you approach each topic from your interests and from a discovery approach. You may find that learning English while also learning about other topics (business, careers, hobbies, interests, travel, culture, etc.) makes it more valuable.

For each of them Roman finds themes interesting to talk about and write about. Grammar and other boring stuff are taken needed care of, but main emphasis of lessons are on free talk."
