My emphasis is on a dialogue-driven and media-enriched practice toward the language. This establishes a common and confident ground for inspirational English learning. The goal is to address critical, daunting issues that often derail students’ track toward their essay, script writing, accent issue, conversation or any related English challenge.
For example, I use a customized curriculum addressing frequently requested themes, as creativity, personal style, grammar, punctuation, diction, syntax, and idea-generation.
Furthermore, students have favorably reviewed my unique usage of audio monitoring software during online lessons to help approximate accent issues between different languages. Students obtain a repository of audio files during each lesson to be used for actively evaluating individual expression while waiting in line, traffic, and during breaks. My multimedia approach that coordinates sound, visual, and online resource, as Merriam-Webster and Google Earth, connects to ...

Erol has a very systematic approach in teaching accent reduction. Since taking lessons with Erol, I've started to become more aware of my speech and noticed an improvement in my pronunciation. Highly recommended!
June
Erol utilizes an audio software to analyze and determine what needs to be worked. This eliminates a lot of human hearing errors and gives me a visual on what’s correct vs incorrect. Highly recommended for you to try his method out.
Rhonda H.
I enjoyed the lesson very much, he started out teaching things that made sense so that I would learn faster than the lessons I have previously taken and not done well with.
I'm looking forward to the next lesson and am practicing what we went over in class.

Each lesson will be based on a theme where we will focus on specific vocabs and phrases related to it. I will also encourage you to speak in Korean during our lessons because the more you speak it, the better you will get! My goal is to help you learn the language in a fun, engaging way so that you truly enjoy learning it and make it a sustainable routine :)

Jennie Armour
Kyle is a great teacher. My grandson Franklin has trouble with paying attention, but Kyle was great when it comes to keeping him focused and interested. He has been with Kyle for close to a year now, and even though he is only 8 years old, he has learned a lot! I would highly recommend taking lessons with Kyle. He makes both grandparents and students happy and, my grandson looks forward to lessons every week with him.

Kyle does a fantastic job understanding the needs of the student and is able to relate to them in a way that helps them to learn.

I can help you with conversation skills, correct pronunciation and proper grammar. I usually use a textbook called ‘Genki’ for my lessons. I provide the textbook so you don’t have to buy it. With ‘Genki’ we can work on various grammar points, vocabulary building, situational role playing, pronunciation, and plenty of exercises to improve your listening and speaking skills.

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.

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.
Christopher
I was nervous about one on one tutoring, but honestly I can say with complete confidence that Miku makes me feel very comfortable during these lessons. She does a great job of mixing exercises with casual conversations to help you really understand how to use the language in real conversation. She is always very fun and flexible with the timing. Highly recommended!!
Dylan
Miku San has been my most valuable asset towards my journey of fluency in the years I’ve spent in pursuit of it. The more you meet with her the more you begin to appreciate her passion for teaching Japanese. Her lessons are both thoughtful and flexible . If I ever have questions on the context she will take the time to articulate an explanation regarding grammar or culture that I could never do on my own, or even with former tutors. Lessons with Miku San have the feeling of meeting with an old friend whilst providing genuine efforts towards your goals. I would recommend her to anyone.

"I really wanted to learn conversational Hindi for speaking and understanding with friends. After my initial introduction call with Prajakta ji she had convinced me that I need to get over my fear of learning Devangari and I'm so glad she did. I've memorized the vowels and am working to memorize the consonants. She really helps to bolster Hindi vocab and stresses the importance of practice through handouts and reviewing them at the next class. Prajakta ji does a good job in trying to customize the lessons for the student's learning desires."
