About English_Tutor100 .

Have you taken many "English-grammar" lessons, but still cannot speak or understand spoken English? Do you want to be more fluent in English? Do you need clearly-spoken-English for your business? I am a United States native speaker, with no notable regional accent.

You need to change your English learning method

I KNOW what to do to help you reach your goals. English-grammar is NOT the way to learn English! Think about it. Did you study grammar in your native language, BEFORE you learned how to speak and understand the language? OF COURSE NOT!

Unlike many so-called "online English teachers," who only chat, I actually TEACH you with a planned curriculum. It is uniquely mine, and it is designed to take beginners - or advanced English-speakers - from where they are, to where they wish to be, in the shortest time possible. I also try to make learning English FUN, and not so boring!

If you have special needs, I can usually use my teaching methods with your special requirements.

In the beginning, I take you back to being a child, to re-learn what is always a deficiency in Foreign-trained 2nd Language speakers. We start with VERY BASIC English. I focus on the SOUNDS of English; enunciation and phonics. I have found that the single most limiting factor in 2nd language speakers is the inability to sound - to enunciate in a way that is understandable. Listening is also a problem because your listening is not tuned to the right phonics - because 2nd language speakers aren't taught to use - and hear - correct sounds and enunciation in speaking. This usually results in frustration on the part of the 2nd language speaker and/or the native speaker, causing their conversations to proceed haltingly at best or just be abandoned.

After mastering the phonics and enunciation, I then focus on teaching "street English." The second most limiting factor is the "school book" learning, leaving the 2nd language speaker with a fine vocabulary which will not work well in a casual conversation on the street, using everyday language, idioms, figures-of-speech, and other non-school-book language.

I teach professional interpreters, English teachers, lawyers, and numerous other advanced-degreed 2nd language speakers who have had 10-16 years of English in schools, but who have not yet mastered the English communication skills. ALL of them are still with me, or have left with the level of English communication skills that they are comfortable with.

I look forward to our lesson.
