My name is Charlotte. Not a day goes by that one of my English clients do not tell me about how helpful my classes were and all the new opportunities they have had since working with me. I am a patient, knowledgeable, focused and certified English Teacher. I graduated from Howard University, with a major in Psychology. I was one of the few undergraduate students to be a co-author of an article in a peer-reviewed journal by the time I graduated. I went on to work in language development research for three and a half years.
English with Charlotte, my business, is dedicated to English users or learners, like you, who want a fun, yet focused environment where they can gain the tools they need to excel. For over a year and a half, I have taught children and adults all over the world, how to become experts in the English language. I have taught nearly 3000 English sessions.
Sessions are available for students beginning in English to more advanced/professional students. I have experience working with students when English is the first language (L1) and second language (L2).
The sessions can focus on Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening, Conversation, English Test Preparation, College Admissions Test Preparation (PSAT, SAT and ACT), Graduate School Admissions Test Preparation (GRE, GMAT and LSAT) and English as a Second Language Test Preparation (TOEFL, IELTS and TOEIC).
Book a Reading session with me, if you are ready to: learn and produce letters, words, and sentences; raise your reading level; improve your reading fluency (speed and accuracy); understand the complex text, or become more inspired to read.
Book a Writing session with me, if you are ready to: produce more legible handwriting; effectively express and organize your ideas; reduce grammar, spelling, punctuation, style and voice errors; receive editing and proofreading assistance for papers and essays; or brainstorm and structure a paper for expository, descriptive, persuasive, narrative, research, academic (APA and MLA formats) and professional writings( including resumes and CV).
Book a Speaking session with me, if you are ready to: learn and correct phonics, intonation, stress and pronunciation errors; create fluency in your speech; or reduce anxiety when speaking in public, speaking for interviews or speaking to others in English.
Book a Listening session with me, if you are ready to: listen and understand English speakers, or be able to have meaningful conversations with others.
Book a Test Preparation session with me, if you are ready to score high on your standardized test. Classes are available for College Admissions Test Preparation (PSAT, SAT, and ACT) and Graduate School Admissions Test Preparation (GRE, GMAT, and LSAT). This includes focusing on content and effective test-taking strategies.
Book an English as a Second language session with me, if you are ready to: communicate in English with ease and confidence as you travel or move to an English-speaking country; score high on your standardized English exams like TOEFL, IELTS or TOEIC; effectively communicate in English for school, work, and career; raise your grade in English class; challenge yourself to reach new heights in your English skills (including grammar, vocabulary, phonics, pronunciation).
Sessions are also able to be geared towards the general improvement of any or all of the areas. I am also prepared to work exclusively on grammar, vocabulary, phonics or pronunciation.

I personally love seeing my students do well. When I see them show improvement where the previously struggled I get so excited!
Charlotte is a great teacher. She went above and beyond to make sure that I was reaching my goals. She is very efficient and understanding. I enjoy working with her. She also has a good personality and makes me laugh. I would recommend her to anyone I know. She will do a great job!
Working with a new student can be a trying time. In the first session, I assess the students skills and level. This includes measuring their reading, writing, talking listening and test-taking skills. Also during this session, I will start exploring the students learning style so that I may effectively plan to cater to the student in each subsequent session. Finally, I take the time to get to know the student and build a connection with them, this creates trust with the student and allows us to make working together fun!
I graduated from Howard University with a B. S. in Psychology. I also earned an English certification.

I first started teaching leadership skills courses to students in middle school and high school. I volunteered to do it, but I really enjoyed it. I have now switched to teaching English and Test Preparation classes and I absolutely love it!
I have worked with many students with the desire to learn and elevate their English. These students range in age from preschool students to adults. I have also worked students where English is their first language and second language. My students may live in The United States or abroad.
My advice would be to stick with a teacher who has a similar personality and understands your learning style. There are many different personalities and ways to learn. Pick one that best suits you.
What are your goals?
How much do you want to dedicate to elevating on a weekly basis?
Are you ready to have fun and learn?
