You three were such a fun group. I strongly encourage small group lessons for two reasons: 1) it brings the price per person to a very low rate and 2) it's very fun! Thank you for taking lessons with Learn English or Spanish LLC. I look forward to hearing all about your trip Akina. Stay in touch.

I am sorry to hear this Michael. Throughout our tutoring you gave me 4 and 5 stars. We did have a communication issue at the beginning, and I thought we resolved it. The day we had a communication problem, I did not charge you for the lesson, because I want students only to pay for lessons they are satisfied with. I think this is very generous.

If you thought I was not a good fit for you, I wish you had chosen another tutor instead of continuing to be disappointed, while saying nothing to me about it. You had a big challenge ahead of you: learn to translate a document from Spanish to English without taking the 4 semesters of Spanish class that are required. I knew this would be a challenging assignment, but I truly love helping students reach difficult goals. I was trying to help you see the big picture of translation and not focus on so many small details since you only had 2.5 months (less than 20 hours of tutoring!). I would have been happy to give you an etymology lesson, but you hired me to help you pass this test. I know tough love can be difficult, but just as we do not always like our trainers at the gym, we thank them later when we get the results that we want.

Sometimes English students ask me: "Why do some people write comin' instead of coming?" Well, I say, it is a shortened form of the word, and native speakers in many languages cut words off at the end. "But why? Why do English speakers take off the g?" the student asks, exasperated. Sometimes, that's just the way the language is. I have taken language classes in 4 languages, and many of my Japanese, French, and Spanish professors at Boston University have told me, "That's just the way the language is."

With you I was focused on the goal of teaching you how to translate a level 4 Spanish text in 2.5 months, and I felt our time was better spent on other things. My goal was for you to pass the test.

For students looking for a tutor, WyzAnt has a satisfaction guarantee. If you are not happy with your tutor, please do not continue to book this tutor. I urge you to find a fit that is good for you. The goal is happy, effective learning. I also suggest planning well in advance for important tests such at the ACT, SAT, PhD exit Spanish tests, and more.

You have been a truly amazing student. Your pronunciation and your English expressions have improved each week. You work hard on your grammar and sentence structure, and I know you put a lot of effort in to your job. It has been a pleasure to work with you, and I know we still have 6 more months of lessons ahead of us before you return to Japan. I have also enjoyed helping you prepare your presentations for work. Thank you for choosing me as your English tutor.

Throughout this last year of tutoring I have seen your English improve exponentially. You have been an amazing student: hard-working, on time, taking my suggestions seriously, and always paying attention and wanting to learn more. You have been wonderful, and I will miss our lessons a lot when you go back to Japan.

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.


Taking tests has always been a forte of mine, and explaining how to pass them has always been another one. I understand how tests like the SAT, ACT, and ASVAB work, and I like sharing the secrets to passing these tests. I cannot wait to work with anyone who really wants to rock the ASVAB and get a great position in the military. This test is extremely important in determining your future with the military, and you don't want to start off on the wrong foot by not preparing. You want to show them that you mean business, and that you are there to work. Start off the right way; I will help you succeed.


With over 4 years of teaching English experience, I know I can help you reach any and all of your English goals. I too have had the experience of learning a second language, so I think this gives me the empathy and patience required when helping students with their goals. I truly look forward to helping you reach your English goals, whether they be simple conversations, college level writing, or understanding those tricky phrasal verbs. Please contact me, and let's get started.


I have been teaching English for over 5 years in Mexico and the US. I am a full time tutor in the subject, so you, my student, are my full time job. I make sure to cover a variety of topics in my lessons: phrasal verbs (to boil down to), idioms (Hold your horses!), slang (What a bummer!), cultural curiosities (You bet!), conversation starters, and more. Even better, the class is customized to what YOU need to learn. Since I've also lived in another country learning a new language, I truly have the patience and empathy needed to successfully assist you with your English goals. I understand the challenges. I will make it fun and interesting too. I also love explaining the 'why's' about your new language.


I have a very specific course for the GED. After taking a GRE course for graduate school, I started designing my own course for the GED, SAT, and ACT. The course covers all areas of the test, and all of my students have raised their scores. I make it fun, while helping you reach your goals.


I have a degree in English literature, and I have worked with children for years, teaching them the patterns of the English language in reading. Sight words and daily reading will quickly give your child the confidence to read more and, most of all, the love of reading.

SAT Reading

The SAT Reading Test can be approached in a very logical way. Let me help you conquer this section of the test. Running out of time? Trying to read every line of the passage? Rereading the passage over and over again? Don't let this section make your head swim. Please contact me, and let me help you master this section of the SAT.


I am qualified to teach Spanish, especially here in Dallas, because I have been tutoring here with the Dallas curriculum for the past 4 years. I have lived in both Spain and Mexico studying history and literature in Spanish, so I bring a wide variety of knowledge to my craft. I understand the challenges an English speaker has with Spanish, so I have mastered expertise explanations that clear up any confusion.
