Mission Statement

Our goal at California ESL is to provide an engaging and interesting language program for non-native speakers to practice and improve the English Language while being immersed in Californian culture. We are a small, intimate language school where our students are not just a number, they are a part of our family.

Alissa Olgun, Co-owner, Administrator, and Teacher

I believe in a professional, but fun and engaging classroom that uses more than just a textbook to learn a language. I have a love for travelling and discovering new cultures. This passion has lead me to work as an English teacher in Barcelona, Cordoba, Auckland, Christ Church, San Francisco, San Diego, and Los Angeles. I have a large background in teaching a large variety of courses. My experience has been with teaching adults, children, group lessons, private lessons, exam courses, and Business English courses. I would love the chance to help you improve your language skills!
