Our teachers

Kristína Moss, Education Master (Ed.M.), Harvard University

Kristína Moss has a degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. She has taught English to speakers of various ages and has experience teaching business English to working professionals.

In 2015, Kristína began offering English language courses for recent immigrants as a volunteer at her local library.

This experience inspired her to pursue a Fulbright Fellowship in Mexico City, where she taught English at a small teacher training college and offered professional development for English teachers.

While in graduate school, Kristína offered one-on-one English courses for business professionals in the Cambridge, MA area. 

Hilary Leslie, master’s degree in City Planning, Harvard University, and Master in TESOL

I have a BA in English and American Literature/Psychology from Brown University, a Master in City Planning from Harvard University, and a Master in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) from Murray State University.

After homeschooling my three children for over 15 years, I began teaching English as a Second Language, first at the University of Kentucky’s Intensive English Program and later online. In addition, since 2012, I have worked for ETS as a TOEFL Speaking rater.

Although I have taught almost every aspect of the English language to students of all ages, from many countries, and with differing proficiency levels, my specialty is TOEFL Speaking. I have helped many of my students to achieve a Speaking score of 26 or higher, something which is required to be licensed as a pharmacist, physical therapist, or nurse in the U.S.

 

I have listened to literally thousands of test-takers answering hundreds of TOEFL questions. I have very strong opinions about how I think the questions should be answered, and they may be quite different from what other teachers, books, and videos teach.

I’m very confident that my advice is the best you can get, and that I can help you get a higher score. But this won’t be dull and dreary … studying for TOEFL should also be enjoyable and the most satisfying part of teaching, for me, is having fun with my students while helping them learn.

Delanie Honda, Education Master (Ed.M.), Harvard University

Delanie Honda has a BA in English Literature from Wheaton College, MA and Ed.M. in International Education Policy from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. She has six years of experience teaching English to students of all ages.

For the past three years, she has been teaching English online.

Beyond teaching, Delanie enjoys traveling, cooking, and playing the sport Ultimate Frisbee. She loves teaching online because it enables her to meet new people from around the world, share experiences and learn about different cultures.

David Wilbanks

I’ve been teaching or tutoring for around 15 years. For the last five, I’ve been teaching at the university level, but before that (and sometimes during), I did some private tutoring and worked at a language school with students of all ages and skill levels.

My strengths are definitely academic speaking and writing, and IELTS prep, though I’ve also taught business English and other types of ESP. In addition to a TEFL certification, I have a BA in English and an MFA in Creative Writing.

Different students learn best in different ways, so I make sure I am always flexible. I try to tailor my style to meet the needs of each student. I am always friendly and encouraging, but otherwise, I try to match the student’s needs, whether that means using a lot of fun and varied activities or more serious study and practice.

Lynn Marie

As a skilled ESL teacher for 15 years I bring international experience to students from all walks of life.  My involvement  working with  refugees has given me the passion and desire to teach English and to connect with others.

Living abroad has conditioned me to adapt well to working efficiently with students cultural differences.  I desire is to help students  meet and improve their academic challenges. My commitment  to helping students succeed, significantly adds to my credentials, as well as the value I bring as an ESL teacher.

 My personalized approach to learning builds trust and confidence. Time after time, my students return to me. Not only have they met their language goals but they have exceeded them.

 

 

The enjoyment and anticipation of each lesson bids the students to risk and engage.  My accessibility to the students assists in substantiating their learning experience and outcome.  Support, along with the assurance of my participation, helps in tailoring and adapting my personal teaching style to each student’s unique needs.
