My first class with Beverly was very nice and interesting, we spoke about verb tenses and how they can be difficult for a person who's studying English as a second language. Later, we discussed ideas for how I can improve my English in different areas; to improve my reading, Beverly suggested I read books, for listening she suggested I watch some films like "The Martian", to improve my writing she suggested I write something every day like a journal, for improving my speaking she suggested I speak in a restaurant or in a store.
Beverly is a really nice person, calm, explains really well and give good tips.
I only had one class with her but I really liked it.

I have been teaching English for 10 years at after school programs and tutoring one on one. Many students do not learn the same way. They have their own way of learning.
