I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

About Bettina

I grew up in Sweden, speaking Swedish at home, but going to French school. At age four, I was immersed in a French environment, and had to sink or swim. I swam! In my late teens, my family moved to Israel, so I became fluent in Hebrew as well. I understand a lot about the language acquisition proces

As a native English speaker, and as someone who has studied one of the most difficult languages in the world (Chinese), I know firsthand how difficult it can be to learn a new language; and more importantly, to be able to speak like natives do. As an English teacher, I make it my priority to teach students from all backgrounds how to sound like a native speaker, both in pronunciation as well as in grammar and correct native usage of words, expressions, and tonality. Books and YouTube videos can only get you so far on your path to English mastery! You need a native speaker with sensitivity to your personal needs and goals to help guide you on your path. So what are you waiting for?? Let's get started!!

"Nick is very patient and knowledgeable. He has helped me reconstruct many paragraphs in essays/college papers that I had to write. He has a keen eye and sees all the little mistakes and ways things could be rewritten to convey point. He has looked over several of my papers and edited them, and also helped me to learn to write better- not just fixing the problem for me. I have watched my grades go from C's to A's over time, he's great !"

"No one ever told me before what I was saying wrong, and Micah would correct me so that I could improve.

She has specialized trademarked drills that she has created so that we train my muscles to move exactly with the true sounds of English as opposed to accent courses that show you the sounds alone. No sounds are said by themselves, so we do drills that incorporate full sentences so that I sound more like a native speaker. She even created Sound Like Americans Accent bootcamp course, and she gave me that for free that I use for the rest of my life and follow the 2-minute drills every day.

We also worked on presentations so that I could improve my pronunciation for the exact words that I would be using in my meetings with clients."

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 …
