About Me

TOEFL and Conversational English Specialist with more than 10 years of tutoring experiences. I love helping students prepare for TOEFL and I look forward to helping you pass your exam with a high score.


Hello everyone! My name is Andrew and I am a teacher, private tutor and avid language learner I am from Portland, Oregon in the beautiful northwestern part of the US. I hold a Masters degree in Applied Linguistics and a Bachelor's degree in Italian. As someone who loves languages I completely understand the struggles of my students and I want to make learning a second language a very positive experience. Learning a language can open up so many opportunities and I would love to help anyone who wants to learn.
I try my best to keep the classes as relaxed as possible so that my students can feel comfortable speaking and can learn at the pace they want with me. In my opinion the best way to improve your speaking ability is to speak as much as possible so my lessons are based on conversations and I give you as much time as possible to speak and improve your English skills. I will teach you the vocabulary you want to learn and help you improve your grammar if necessary. Your success is so important to me

For those students studying for exams such as IELTS and TOEFL I will create a personalized learning plan for you and I will work with you as much as possible to guarantee you get the score you want on the exam.

Lastly, it's important to me that you learn the things that you want to learn. I will create personalized lessons depending on your needs and interests and I will always give 100% in my lessons.
