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

About Marty D

I've worked in the nonprofit sector most of my adult life with about ten years on the tech side. I've helped to organize and run sessions for two national nonprofit tech conferences. In addition... to being a native speaker of American English, I speak Spanish & French fluently. I have previously been conversational in Russian and German and know a couple hundred words in another half dozen languages. I have extensive experience as a trainer & workshop facilitator over the last 30 years in a wide variety of topics: politics, emotional support, health education, pain management, sustainability, social justice and spiritual fulfillment. I've moderated online discussions and taught at conferences & retreat centers. I really enjoy seeing light bulbs go off over people's heads. I follow a paleo ketogenic diet mostly based on the ideas of Dr Patricia Wahls. There are the usual diet charlatans out there but she is an MD following the latest nutrition science. I like direct authentic honest constructive feedback and true specific believable compliments. I love to hike, sing, play improv games & chess, and read sci-fi.show more
