Hello and welcome to our site!
Along with myself, the people behind the scenes of Essential English Solutions are Mariegrace, Bella, and Connie.
We are a small group of individuals who have been working in the field of English language instruction for the past decade or so. Our experiences teaching both in class and online led us to form a team and delve into the realm of online language instruction and assistance. Basically, we are a group of professionals who have worked in ESL for an extensive period of time, developed an understanding of the nature of the field, and decided to address issues and help students in areas that we felt were lacking.
In our experience, learning any subject is more about fit and comfort than anything else, and we encourage you to explore and learn with different people in different environments. You will never hear us tell you that we are the best for everybody because any instructor who tells you that may not have your best interests at heart. However, we can guarantee you that we will put forth our greatest effort to give you the best learning experience tailored to your needs. More than anything, we want you to succeed in reaching your goals.
We are confident that you will benefit from working with us, and we will make every effort to accommodate you and help you to reach your goals. One immediate characteristic to note: our system is designed for your convenience. It is done completely online, and you can start and stop at any time, so there are no long term commitments either financially or with your time.
Here are some other reasons why you might want to consider us for your English language improvement needs:
Sensitivity to diversity - Every member of our team has firsthand knowledge and experience with ESL students, both personally and professionally. We are all from diverse backgrounds and so are our family members and friends, and of course the hundreds of students we have worked with. We understand the challenges facing ESL students, the issues that can make students reluctant, shy, embarrassed, frustrated or even afraid to try and improve their language skills. We also have extensive experience working with students from all around the world, so we are aware of the cultural, social and educational norms and differences between people. With that sensitivity and understanding in mind, we try to accommodate and adjust our styles to suit the needs and preferences of each individual learner, regardless of where that person comes from.
Commitment to students - Our philosophy is to prioritize the success and well-being of each student above anything else. As instructors, we are fully aware of the sums students have to pay at various institutions and our goal is to provide a level of quality in education that will leave students feeling completely assured and satisfied. We pride ourselves in serving as a resource and making ourselves available to students to the greatest extent possible. Even when our lessons are over, we are constantly discussing ways to improve and assist students more productively and effectively. This is something that we prove every day, in every session with a student.
Qualifications - Often times, ESL instructors teach ESL out of happenstance or as a “back-up” plan,. Some may they teach ESL simply because English is their primary language. While many instructors may be very effective and successful with this approach, they may be lacking in areas such as formal training, knowledge of effective instructional techniques and methods, and simple enthusiasm for teaching learners. Our team has advanced degrees in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and we didn't just end up or fall into this field by chance. We chose it, and because of that choice, we are expertly equipped to assist learners effectively.
Organization - While we are not a large business, we take pride in our organizational and communication skills. As stated before, we are a small operation, so when you contact us you will be contacting one of our four team members. Our goal is to communicate with our students the way we like to be communicated with: quickly, friendly and conveniently. Based on our experience working for educational institutions, we have seen that excellent organization and communication are keys to success.
These are just some of the reasons why you might want to consider utilizing our services. We are confident that if given a chance, we can demonstrate for you what we have demonstrated for hundreds of other ESL students: that we provide excellent service at a great value.
