Believe in Soulphia's Mission
We are the best choice for those who really want to learn English, who believe in consistency of excellency.
To optimize your time and effort, we created a methodology that engages you to learn in a fun and effective way.
Our tutors are extraordinary, you will fall in love with their ability to interact with you. They will teach you the English they have learned by living incredible stories in the United States.
We are social and sustainable. After reading more about our mission, we are sure that you will not only choose us, but you will also become one of our ambassadors.
Communicating is simple. It was the first thing we learned to do since we were born.
Based on that, we looked for what was new and scientifically proven.
In partnership with Educurious, an Educational company funded by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, we created what we call Disruptive Learning: we explore, through individual online classes with native speakers, much more than the words; the goal is to truly understand their meaning.
We use different resources such as videos, podcasts, and articles. We go further beyond focusing on just the human interaction, that was exactly how our brains first learned our native language.
We believe in empowering people through education.
We Homeless women living in shelters in New York City into extraordinary English tutors. This transformation is the energy that makes them dedicate themselves to giving their best and it is fully transferred to the way our students learn.
The learning experience is Faster, more effective, sustainable and better. Much better.
Based on the latest data from the Coalition for the Homeless, more than 60,000 people sleep every night in New York shelters today.
The profile is very different from a resident in Brazil's street / shelter situation. The reasons that lead a New York woman into this situation are not related to the use of alcohol and drugs, but to the huge increase in the value of rent and the fact that there is no salary correction to the same extent.
The United States has one of the best educational systems in the world; so all these women have excellent academic training and have had good jobs. However, they were surprised and came to a situation that could occur with any of us.
The solution is simple: we just need to offer a real job opportunity.
Our part is preparing them to make it happen, being a student, giving and sharing.
I enrolled in this project as a last attempt at grasping the English language. I was very insecure in my first class. I thought I would not be able to find comfortability to speak, but the charisma, patience and dedication of the tutor quickly changed my perspective; so much so that I did not want the class to end. Overcoming these previous obstacles encouraged me to continue onward and learn more every day. In a few months I went from knowing a much basic level of English to intermediate. Soulphia has made such an impact my life.
The Soulphia project is incredible! I had a great barrier when speaking English, and now I feel more confident! I did not learn everything quickly, but they helped me bring to the surface what I already had inside me. It has made me take a big leap in my conversation. English for me has never been easy, but the interaction with the tutors, the positive energy of the lesson, the disposition, the dynamics and the purpose, gave me me more courage to advance my goal of reaching fluency someday.
Taking English classes at Soulphia was the best decision I could have ever made. The classes have been greatly intellectual since the beginning. The classes are conducted through live audio and video. I had hoped it would be a good course, but it is much more than that. I've been studying English since I was 10 and I must say, that these are the best English classes I've had in my entire life. After a few weeks, my pronunciation of many words are much clearer and I have made fewer mistakes whenever I speak.
Soulphia is an incredible project, it's the perfect opportunity for anyone who wants to make improvements in their English while helping to change the world." The tutors are fantastic, I have gained more confidence in speaking English and learning something new with every class I take! Another positive in Soulphia is the exchange of experience and the way it contributes to expand the worldview that we have. Each class presents both the students and tutors in relation to the reality of NYC and the Brazilian culture. Much gratitude to all involved in this project!
