I am a certified English teacher from New York with a Certification in Neurolanguage Coaching, which allows me to teach with a true methodology and knowing how to calm the mind for a pleasant learning experience and to build connections for maximum results.
This background in teaching and proven results is the major difference between me and teachers in my academy vs. other teachers online. Also, I speak Spanish, having lived in South America, and have a passion for meeting people from all over the world to help them feel more natural and native when speaking and interacting in English. I love what I do and have a kind, patient, compassionate way of teaching and relating with everyone. Every student is a universe.
My goal is to make every learner feel free and confident when communicating in English, and I look forward to helping you become the best version of yourself in English!

“Elana is a fantastic native teacher. I have been studying with her during the last year with very good results. She has the ability to build a good environment to learn english and organize the study. I reached the score that I needed thanks to Elana. I really recommend her as a teacher”.
Taking classes with Elana has been very gratifying, because she not only teachES you in regular classes, but she encourageS you, giveS advice and orientation to take advantage of your personal study outside of classes. In the first two weeks I could notice an improvement in my English skills. She is more like a coach than a typical teacher. I was looking for that kind of teaching!
Elana is indeed a great choice for an IELTS prep teacher as she is well-experience and has empathy for her students. She gives great interview preparation tips. She helped my husband and me prepare for the same. The interview practice session made us confident to face the interview.
Elana helped my husband and me practise our interview/ Speaking section for IELTS and helped us gain the necessary confidence. Her expert tips proved useful whilst interviewing. We recommend her as the right choice who has empathy for her students and is well experienced. :)
