Learn English accent. Here are some goals you could set yourself:-
I have a TESOL certificate as well as MFA and BA degrees, and I've taken graduate-level education courses. Before teaching, I worked for many years in business in New York City.
I n addition to tutoring, I also have the valuable experience of being a recent online language student. As I've studied Spanish, I have gained first-hand knowledge of being a learner! Seeing both the teacher and student perspectives has broadened my point of view and given me an understanding I would not otherwise have. I'm very empathetic with my students because I know how difficult it can be to communicate in another language.
My objective is to advance your English, and to do so, we will work as a team. To begin, you will let me know your goals in studying English, then I'll personalize your lessons. Are you studying for school or work? Do you like to travel? Do you have English-speaking friends? Or maybe studying English is a hobby for you.
No matter what your goal, we will make the lessons fun and enjoyable. You will move closer to achieving your objectives in speaking English. My approach to teaching English is to incorporate the four basic language skills - speaking, writing, listening, and reading - into every lesson. By using these skills simultaneously, a learner can acquire both the productive and comprehensive skills to speak a language fluently. We will identify your existing strengths and fortify the other areas so that you will become a well-rounded English speaker.
< p>If you have specific goals to meet with your English lessons, we will focus your studies accordingly. Are you studying for school or work? Is there a test you’d like to study for? Do you like to travel? Do you have English-speaking friends? I will personalize your lessons and we will work as a team to meet your objectives.
My belief is that learning a language should be enjoyable. Gaining new skills and being able to communicate is a marvelous thing! I will try to make your classes fun and interesting. When you are comfortable, the environment is ideal for learning. One-on-one language lessons should be fun and enjoyable.

English language is one tool to establish our viewpoint. We can learn from others experience. We can check the theories of foreigners against our experience. We can reject the untenable and accept the tenable. We can also propagate our theories among the international audience and readers. We can make use of English to promote our worldview and spiritual heritage throughout the globe. When William Caxton set up his printing press in London (1477) the new hybrid language (vernacular English mixed with courtly French and scholarly Latin) became increasingly standardized, and by 1611, when the Authorized (King James) Version of the Bible was published, the educated English of London had become the core of what is now called Standard English. By the time of Johnson’s dictionary (1755) and the American Declaration of Independence (1776), English was international and recognizable as the language we use today. The Orthography of English was more or less established by 1650 and, in England in particular, a form of standard educated speech, known as Received Pronunciation (RP) spread from the major public schools in the 19th century. This accent was adopted in the early 20th century by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) for its announcers and readers, and is variously known as RP, BBC English, Oxford English, and the King’s or Queen’s English. Generally, Standard English today does not depend on accent but rather on shared educational experience, mainly of the printed language. Present-day English is an immensely varied language, having absorbed material from many other tongues. It is spoken by more than 300 million native speakers, and between 400 and 800 million foreign users. It is the official language of air transport and shipping; the leading language of science, technology, computers, and commerce; and a major medium of education, publishing, and international negotiation. For this reason, scholars frequently refer to its latest phase as World English.
