Hi there, my name is Guido D. and I am an effective, patient English instructor. I have an Italian name, but I was born and raised in California by English-speaking parents.
To give you some background, I graduated from California State University Long Beach with a BA in political science, a 3.93 GPA, and experience serving in student government. Since graduating, I have returned to CSULB to complete the teaching credential program there. I am currently qualified to teach 6th-12th grade social science classes in California. I am also a TEFL certified ESL/TOEFL instructor who has taught high school and college students for over two years at community colleges.
As an ESL/TOEFL instructor, I have helped students of all proficiency levels pass the TOEFL, write strong academic papers, and improve their conversational English. Many of my students have thanked me for helping them advance academically and in their careers.
I believe I get results because I get my students to speak a lot naturally. My upbeat, friendly personality motivates students, and my gentle corrections of student mistakes ensure that they learn stress-free. My personalized lessons keep students engaged in the material.
I treat my students with respect, and conduct myself with professionalism and integrity. My fees are fair. I strive to meet or exceed my students' expectations, and to accommodate for their needs.
All in all, if you are looking for a teacher who is determined to help you reach your goals, please contact me. I am always glad to take on new students!
