About Aaron

If you need to improve your English skills, I have the experience you need in a teacher who can help you make rapid progress. If you need to improve your Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and/or French skills, or if you are starting any of these languages from scratch, I know exactly how to connect these languages to English so that as a native English speaker, you can make quick strides in your foreign language speaking and writing skills.

I have taught ESL, English as a Second Language for 15+ years, in a small private school, and I can help you get ready for the TOEFL Test. In addition, my love of languages in general will give you access to techniques that I've learned and continue to employ myself as I am currently learning Catalan, the language spoken in Barcelona, Spain, and that you can use yourself in your language learning journey. Having lived overseas, in Italy, and also having traveled extensively in Central and South America, I can also give you a sense of how to incorporate culture into your language learning.

By conducting lessons online, I have the flexibility to adjust my schedule to your specific scheduling needs. I look forward to meeting you and helping you see how a language learning expert can show you how to make real progress in YOUR language learning.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

I have been teaching ESL (English as a Second Language) for 15+ years, and I specialize in helping my students not only learn English but also enjoy it. Learning to enjoy English, through games, videos, and fun projects, my students make real progress and enjoy it. I speak several European languages, as well as Japanese, so I can show my students techniques that I use myself to learn a language.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL ( English as Second Language) for 15 + years to students from all around the world. Whether you are from Angola or Austria, Zambia or Venezuela, I can show you how to make real progress in writing, speaking, listening, reading, and, most importantly, thinking in English.

French

I am an ESL (English as a Foreign Language) teacher, but my real passion is foreign languages. In addition to speaking French, I speak several other European languages, so I know how a new language learner feels, and I can pass my techniques on to my students.

Grammar

In simple words, I love learning and teaching grammar. From Chinese to Italian, from Japanese to French, I am a person who enjoys finds grammar fascinating. Beyond that, I love to teach grammar as well. As an ESL ( English as a Second Language) teacher with 15 + years of experience, I know how to make grammar accessible and crystal clear to anyone, from any background.

Italian

I studied in Perugia, Italy and fell in love with the people, culture, and language of Italy. In addition to Italian, I have also learned several other European languages, so I know what it is like to be a language learner. I can pass my techniques on to you so that you also find learning Italian rewarding and fun.

Portuguese

As an ESL ( English as second Language) teacher, my focus is typically on helping people from Brazil and Portugal learn English. However, my real passion is teaching people who want to learn Portuguese, which is a wonderful language. I can help you link English grammar, which you know inherently, to Portuguese grammar, and, as a result, you will make rapid progress. I speak several European languages, so I know the challenges you face as a foreign language learner well. I can show you the techniques I used to learn Portuguese, so that you can enjoy the wonderful music, food, and culture of Brazil and Portugal.

Spanish

I have made it a focus to learn this beautiful language of Spain and Mexico. The rich literary traditions of Spain and the beauty of old, colonial Mexico have drawn me in, and I can help you learn the language of these wonderful places.

TOEFL

I have been teaching TOEFL in an ESL school for 16 years. In addition, I speak several languages, so I know exactly how my students feel as they face the challenges that learning a new language presents. I can evaluate your English quickly and,then, give you a detailed plan about how to score well on the TOEFL test. My experience, I have taught people from more than 60 countries, gives me a unique edge over other teachers. I understand how language learners learn and can help them reach the goal of a good score on the TOEFL test.

Writing

Learning to write well, in this case in English, is a skill worth working on. From writing an email to your customer to writing a proposal that your boss will look over for a big project, learning to write clearly, correctly, and, we hope, in an interesting way is crucial. The foundation consists, of course, of spot on grammar and a wide ranging vocabulary. I can show you how to acquire those skills and prepare you to begin expressing yourself well as you write.
