I have extensive experience in public speaking and English, encompassing pre-K-12 and college students to business clients. I adore teaching and have an infectious passion for the English language. During my 12 years of tutoring, I've impacted K-12 children's reading and writing--from phonics, word recognition, vocabulary, hand printing, spelling, reading, and beginning sentence structure with pre-K-2 children, to grammar, sentence structure, paragraph development, research, advanced writing...

We love Miriam! She is very great with kids, and she helps with my son and daughter for their English through her designed courses. They are both improving very fast! We are so lucky to have Miriam as our tutor!

I had a wonderful session with Miriam before I had to give a big speech. It was very helpful -- the speech went very smoothly, thanks to her. I'd highly recommend her to others looking for a public speaking coach.
- Gabrielle B. from Los Angeles, CA
My son tells me the enthusiasm that Miriam brings to class just revives him, even though his tutoring is late Friday afternoon. He finds Miriam very articulate and she makes the class interesting. He plans to prep better so that he can have more discussion with Miriam. Thanks

Miriam is an incredibly kind and talented tutor. She tutored me for my public speaking class, and worked with me very patiently and was flexible in terms of scheduling a time. She helps me on my assignments in her own time and stayed late when an assignment was due so that we could finish it. Could not have asked for a better tutor. Thank you Miriam!
- Anonymous A. from Los Angeles, CA
Look forward to another lesson with Miriam soon. Our lessons emphasize in business writing, grammar, pronunciation, and spelling. We are making progress on clauses, proposition, complex and compound sentence. Never knew complex compound sentence exists for the last 20 something years in my life until she elaborates her knowledge of grammar rules.

Per student, "She is funny, nice and she helps me to learn my English and how to do my parts of speech."
- Marion A. from Inglewood, CA
Very nice, respectful, and patient tutor. She knows what she is doing and actually cares about the individual who is learning.
- Roya M. from Los Angeles, CA
Miriam is wonderful with Jyeselle. Very sweet and patient. She accommodates our needs which makes it a lot easier for both Jye and I. She is always so happy and positive, we love having her over.
- Noemi A. from Los Angeles, CA
Miriam is such a nice teacher because she arrives prepared with material related to my field of business. She works with intense passion of her love of the English language, both written and oral. She delivers analysis and correction with boldness and brutal honesty. She strives to perceive the client's comprehension, regularly pausing to check with oral discussion. Her knowledge and experience in the business arena enables us to edit my important presentations quickly and easily together. For clear pronunciation, she uses all available materials, websites and face/voice/mouth/tongue positions; demanding me to watch and implements serious repetitive practice. Her public speaking enthusiasm is contagious and she coaches my current and future presentations by providing introduction and transition phrase ideas, stressing eye contact and confidence.
- Katsumi N. from Los Angeles, CA
Great approach with my son. Miriam had a good reading program, scrambled sentences, spelling, and story comprehension. It was a good start. Miriam is very warm and jovial. My son was interested in the learning. I would recommend Miriam to anyone. She knows what to teach really well.
- Sel S. from Culver City, CA
My experience with Miriam has been fantastic. She has proven to be more than just reliable and prompt. Miriam comes to each session very well prepared. She arrives ready with her research completed and materials for the lesson in hand. She has been able to inspire my fourth-grader to enjoy studying English. She has shown a level of enthusiasm that is infectious, as well as helped develop writing techniques and grammar skills and understanding that were lacking from my daughter's classroom curriculum. In addition, she has been a great sounding board and mentor for my ninth-grader, developing ideas and concepts for writing in her analytical literature course. I'm glad that we found Miriam. She has been instrumental in my children's ability to learn and retain skills that I'm sure will prove to be invaluable. - Update 4/10/2014 - I cannot give enough praise to Miriam for all of her help with my fourth grader. Miriam helped her refine her speech and compact it onto only eight note cards that helped jog her memory enough to make it through the entire presentation almost effortlessly. My daughter was fearful of going in front of her class until Miriam instilled her with the confidence and poise she needed for public speaking. It was an amazing accomplishment. She never would have been able to do it on her own. I feel that Miriam didn't just help my daughter through this one assignment; she gave my daughter advice on how to structure her speech and techniques to deliver her presentation that will help her for future projects.
- Tatiana V. from Los Angeles, CA

- Kimberly B. from Los Angeles, CA
I find Miriam helpful to both of my academic project and my communication skill essential to my career success. Probably due to her strong background in both education and work experience. She prepares her material for each client to assist clients to achieve their fullest potential. I am highly satisfied with the knowledge shared by her and am grateful to working toward a better me with her help.
- Steven L. from Glendale, CA
I have chosen Miriam to be the tutor for my five year old son who will be starting Kindergarten in the fall. Miriam knows how to make the lessons enjoyable by incorporating strategies that will let my son learn and focus. My son has a very shy character and Miriam makes sure that he lets him come out of his shell. They sings songs, draw, color, but Miriam makes sure that my son is getting something out of this. My son enjoys his lessons with Miriam and is always looking forward to his next session. Miriam is the best tutor.
- Gina S. from Culver City, CA
Miriam helps my daughter in English -- grammar, vocabulary and writing! She makes it fun, helps her to organize her thoughts, get them on paper and most importantly, she maintains a patient energy about herself which is a powerful tool to motivate and reward my daughter for her efforts. It has been three weeks and Miriam established a rapport with my daughter. We appreciated Miriam's patient and her way of teaching. We are confident and hopeful that her skills to keep the sessions focused and moving at a good pace will help our daughter to excel in her comprehension and writing.
