ESL Tutoring

Pay it
Forward

25 value Virtual OK

I can give you formal lessons and homework or if you like we can just chat and I will correct you as we go along which is a great place to start. I can send you some links to the amazing resources on the web especially including things that may be fun enough to keep you engaged & motivated.

I have studied and taught a number of languages so I understand what it's like to try to learn one.

I'm very patient & consistently get good reviews for tutoring & teaching. I can answer questions, give you free internet resources that are fun to keep you in motion, help you with grammar & pronunciation. I try to practice interactive teaching methods involving all the senses based on recent brain research.

We can work on any aspect of English that you want.
Verbs
Accent reduction
Grammar
Pronunciation
Comprehension

I can help you find places to practice your english and have fun so you keep doing it. As well as free public classes that are available throughout the US

I am the worst. Marty was there ready. He sent me materials and was communicative from the first message when I proposed a deal. I lost track of time ...at work and missed our appointment. I hope he will give me another chance and I’m completing this deal because he did it was my fault that I didn’t show up. Sorry about that! show more
