I've taught ESL to many students, varying from people who could barely say "hello" to those who were just trying to get the past perfect continuous tense right. I love it.

My lessons are always very interactive! You will not just sit and listen to me! If you don't talk -- a lot -- I didn't do my job and you can fire me! Accent reduction and pronunciation are strength areas, especially with Asian languages. Strong skills with business professionals, especially in the high tech industry. We will work on the things that matter to you! Writing, Small Talk, Pronunciation, Vocabulary and maybe some Grammar. Let's have some fun, do some work and expand your English!

About Lori

I love teaching! I have a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Education and have been teaching ESL online to business professionals around the world; particularly in the high-tech field. I have taught English internationally in China, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kurdistan and Mozambique for more than

Are you trying to better your English? Don't let the pandemic stop you- practice English today!

I specialize in teaching adults on a Pre-Intermediate to Upper-Intermediate level. I enjoy working one-on-one with students to make sure lessons are specially made to help develop weak areas.

Each lesson is made to target skills like listening, reading, vocabulary, grammar, writing and function skills. Personally, 45 minutes is the perfect amount of time. We can discuss after the first session!

Due to COVID-19, online lessons are preferred. Copies of lessons and teacher feedback will be provided after each lesson.

I can help you with conversation skills, correct pronunciation and proper grammar. I have plenty of materials that we can use for the lessons!

I try my best to keep the classes as relaxed as possible so that you can feel comfortable speaking and can learn at your own pace.

About Miku

Hi everyone! My name is Miku. I was born in Hawaii and raised in Japan. I graduated from Dokkyo university in Saitama, Japan, and majored in hospitality and tourism. I was a former flight attendant for ANA (All Nippon Airways) living in Tokyo, Japan until I moved back to Hawaii in 2016. I’m now a f

Mikuさん is awesome!! Extremely patient and helpful without holding my hand. I’m able to understand sentences better with less than a year of lessons. She’s very professional and prompt. The lessons are always interesting and I actually feel like I’m improving every time (even if it’s just a little at a time). I’m really looking forward to being more conversational in Japanese!!
Cathy
I highly recommend Miku and have recommended her to several friends because lessons with her are extremely fun, engaging, and thorough. I look forward to every single one, and have already learned so much in what seems like a short time--the time flies! She is also incredibly accommodating and makes rescheduling very easy and hassle free. I very much appreciate the time she shares with me as a student in helping me learn the way I do!
Adrienne
Miku is a great teacher to work with! I've been doing weekly lessons with Miku remotely since December of 2019 (now July 2020 as I'm writing this) starting from no experience.  I was worried about my ability to learn a new language since my only experience prior to this was learning Spanish in school years ago, but learning to read and speak Japanese with Miku's guidance has been the right level of challenging and fun.  Miku is a great communicator, flexible, really knowledgeable, adds nuance to the lessons we move through, and also really just fun to talk to and learn from.

I'm a student at University at Albany working on my Master's degrees for ESL Education Program and Intercultural Communication. I am passionate about teaching, and I absolutely love the idea of cultural exchanges and learning about students! I was also an ESL student when I first came to the States and I understand how hard it can be. I have experiences in teaching a class of more than 25 students as well as one-on-one tutoring sessions of various proficiency levels. Hope to hear from you soon!

ESL Learners: Are You Making These 21 Common Mistakes?

There are certainly some tricky words in the English language! And sometimes, people who have learned English as a second language mix up these words. Want to avoid making the same mistakes? Here are the words ESL learners misuse the most. Them, Those, and These "Them" is a pronoun that stands in the place of a plural noun. It is commonly used as the subject of a sentence, as in: Did you see them? or Have you seen the scissors? I used them to cut the labels off my T-shirts; now I can’t fin …
