Experience: 5 years
Hello, my name is Arif, and I am originally from California in the United States. I have over four years experience teaching English as a foreign language. I graduated from Montclair State University with a B.A. Philosophy of Language, magna cum laude. I have lived in many places around the world, and I love traveling, surfing, snowboarding, and writing. I am a martial artist, and have a true passion for language acquisition! I have always had a passion for learning language, and speak two languages fluently, as well as holding a higher intermediate level of fluency in two others. I am currently learning Mandarin Chinese. I know what it is like to learn a new language, and have the patience and passion to help you improve your English. I have experience teaching students from around the world to improve their spoken English, and I am sure I can do the same for you!
My classes are tailor made for each student. After a quick assessment of your English level we can begin your journey towards speaking closer and closer to the way a true native English speaker does. We can work together to improve your conversation skills, pronunciation, grammar, intonation, word order...anything to improve your English level. I have also helped many students achieve higher results in both the IELTS and TOEFL examinations.
I offer two kinds of classes, general English classes and test preparation. General English classes are suited to anyone wishing to generally raise their English level. I also offer IELTS and TOEFL preparation classes.
English classes are 15 USD per 55 minutes.
I reccommend that students who wish to imrpove an IELTS band score should spend at least a couple of hours a week for a few months preparing for this exam.
In the IELTS preparation classes we will focus on the speaking and writing sections. You will gain the skills required to raise your IELTS band score.
Whether you are just trying to improve your spoken English, practice for an upcoming job interview, or ace an IELTS or TOEFL examination I will do my utmost to help you achieve your goals. You will recieve prompt feedback in class as well as clear explanations to grammar points. Students who have the time and desire will also recieve regular homework to help them improve their weeknesses.
I offer one free 25 minute trial lesson. See my calendar for availability and to book a lesson. To reserve a class please send me a request through Buddy School. Thanks, and I hope to see you really soon! Arif
