« Learning a second language is difficult, but with the right teacher, it can be enjoyable and you will make progress. Zoe is fluent in Spanish, she is a very patient instructor. She has the ability to assess each student and determine the best approach and tailor a learning experience specifically for you, which is important because we all learn differently. Zoe also is able to recommend resources and books to help you practice in between lessons. While she has a lesson plan in mind for each student, she will stop and answer your questions, give you good examples of why certain words are used, and is very flexible with the lessons. If the student feels they need to slow it down and review past material, that is fine, she would prefer that if it helps you build a strong foundation in the language. Many people can read and speak Spanish, but how many can teach it? Zoe can. I highly recommend her to anyone that wants to learn, or improve, their Spanish. »

English can be easy and fun! Professionally certified teacher with decades of experience.

Methodology

Want to learn English quickly, without all the stress, but with fun activities and conversations? Look no further. I am a second-language teacher with two decades of experience with all levels, ages and interests, from elementary to post-college level. I will take the time to understand your needs, then meet or exceed them. In my view, there is no such thing as a "stupid question," if you are hungry to learn. I want to share my love of languages with you.

Quieres aprender el inglés rápidamente, sin mucho estrés, pero con actividades y conversaciones divertidas? No hay que buscar más. Soy profesora de inglés como segundo idioma con más de 20 años de experiencia. Doy clases a todas edades y niveles. En mi opinión, no hay ninguna "pregunta estúpida" si uno tiene ganas de aprender. Quiero compartir mi pasión para los idiomas contigo.

Background

I have been teaching languages for over 20 years in the Boston area. I have taught hundreds of students, including private tutoring clients. I love languages and try my hardest to make them fun, approachable, and useful. My students have improved grades, gone on to graduate from high school and college, achieve success at work, and gain employment they might not otherwise have achieved. I would love to be your language teacher!

Learning a second language is difficult, but with the right teacher, it can be enjoyable and you will make progress. Zoe is fluent in Spanish, she is a very patient instructor. She has the ability to assess each student and determine the best approach and tailor a learning experience specifically for you, which is important because we all learn differently. Zoe also is able to recommend resources and books to help you practice in between lessons. While she has a lesson plan in mind for each student, she will stop and answer your questions, give you good examples of why certain words are used, and is very flexible with the lessons. If the student feels they need to slow it down and review past material, that is fine, she would prefer that if it helps you build a strong foundation in the language. Many people can read and speak Spanish, but how many can teach it? Zoe can. I highly recommend her to anyone that wants to learn, or improve, their Spanish.
