I’m CHRIS PHILLIPS
In my private English lessons in N.Y.C.,

  • You will learn clear, beautiful, fluent American English.
  • My teaching methods make English grammar and vocabulary both fun and easy to remember.
  • I will help you achieve your personal goals in English as a Second Language (E.S.L.).
  • I promise that my private lessons will give you real progress you will notice and that your confidence in English will increase.

I first taught in E.S.L. schools and as a private English tutor in Asia more than 20 years ago, after I graduated from YALE UNIVERSITY. Since then, I have had many years of experience as a professional English editor and translator. I can teach you not only how to SPEAK GREAT ENGLISH, but also WHY the language works the way it does.

Do you want to improve your writing? HOW TO WRITE ENGLISH WELL AND CLEARLY is my specialty. I have edited books, magazines and newspapers, working closely with writers. I will help you improve your text, and also make you a better writer.

A GOOD ACCENT in English is not difficult! With my expert ear, I can analyze your pronunciation and help you improve it. You will sound better and more fluent. My own English is very clear, standard and easy to understand.

I have studied many foreign languages, so I have many, many personal language tips and techniques to help you learn.

Learning English is a combination of knowledge and art. I use English the way a violinist uses a violin. You will, too!

I give private English lessons in two beautiful locations in N.Y.C., in Midtown Manhattan and on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. (Credit cards are accepted.)

I invite you to come for a FREE INTRODUCTORY MEETING. Let’s begin!
