ESL Tutoring

I am now pleased to be offering private and group tutoring in the area of English as a Second Language.

I am a TESL Canada-certified instructor who has been teaching English as a second/foreign language to youth and adults with almost twenty years of experience. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Adult Education, and have worked both internationally and in Canada, at private language schools as well as in non-profit settings teaching newcomers and refugees.

As a teacher, I use a task-based, communicative approach to make my lessons both challenging and enjoyable. I have worked with youth and adults of all English proficiency levels, from absolute beginner to proficiency, of all linguistic, religious and cultural backgrounds to help them achieve their goals.

I am currently offering private one-to-one tutoring via Zoom in the following areas:

  • Conversation
  • English for Academic Purposes
  • Exam preparation (TOEFL, Cambridge, IELTS)
  • Skills development (reading, listening, writing, speaking)
  • Vocabulary
  • Grammar studies

Classes are 50 minutes in length, and are always customized to meet the needs of my students. Prices start at $30 CAD per 50 minute session.

“I have known Lisa as a professional English teacher since 2003. She is honest, reliable and open-minded to all students. Her English lessons are well-prepared and make me forward-looking to learn English. After finishing her program, I have still continued to keep learning English based on her concept to develop my individuality. It is really fun for me to communicate in English due to her hospitality that she gave to me in Toronto. I would like to highly recommend her English class if you want to become confident. Being able to speak English enriches your life.”  -Dr. Masahiko Suzukawa, Japan
