Is it advise or advice? Should I use complement versus compliment? You have come across them. They are words that sound exactly the same, but are spelled differently and they have different meanings. These words are called homonyms. The context will sometimes help you understand which word is appropriate, but you still need to know how to spell the word. Both native English speakers and non-native English learners have made these silly mistakes. These words show up in the reading and writing sections of the ACTs, SATs, IELTS, and TOEFL exams. And yes, you do lose points when you use the wrong word.

You may also be in a business setting and where you need to write emails or letters to your business investors. You may need to write cover letters if you are searching for that job. In all these circumstances the wrong word usage may cost you a job prospect or a business deal. Remember that spell checks do not usually catch these types of wrong word usage errors.

Whatever your English needs are, I am available to teach you techniques that will help you avoid costly mistakes. Feel free to review my schedule availability and select dates and times that are best for you.

Hello. My name is Charles. I reside in the eastern part of the United States, and I've been teaching and tutoring students of different ages and levels for about ten years. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and I also received my Master's Degree in the same field. Prior to becoming an ESL English teacher, I worked as a Software Engineer for about twelve years! I also organized seminars aimed at bringing leading edge technologies in the hands of engineers and educators. From the time I completed my undergraduate work in computer science, right through to receiving my Master of Science degree in the same field, I have been passionate about making learning fun for my students. First as a computer science instructor of adults at a private university and later as an English, Math, Science, and Social Studies teacher of children in the public elementary and middle schools in the United States, I have helped students reach their educational potential! I have helped students of different ages, wants and needs. I have taught elementary school children to read, write, and speak in English. I have also taught college students and adult students. I have taught students who want to learn English because their job requires them to be proficient in English. I studied other languages for several years, so I know what works when you want to learn a new language. I like to teach using the communicative approach. I like to make language learning easy. I will always provide feedback so that you will know what to practice and how to practice. I also tailor my lessons to fit my student's urgent needs. This way both of us can achieve our educational goals. When I am not teaching, you can find me reading, playing football or basketball, playing my guitar, or you might find me spending time with my family. Everyone can learn a new language. You can do it! So book your first class with me. This way, I will get the opportunity to give you the tools you need to learn English. See you in my class!
