Are you looking for a way to improve your English? Would you like the chance to improve your reading or writing skills, grammar, conversation and listening skills, increase your vocabulary, or work on any problem you may have with the English language.

Teaching ESL is my passion. When teaching, I become energized and totally involved in the moment. It's a great feeling, and I use this positive energy to make my teaching the best it can be for the student--exciting, interesting, informative, and never boring.

I remember when I was in college working toward my MA degree in English, and I had a very boring professor for one of my classes. He sat in front of the class and talked non-stop for three hours. He was incredibly boring, and it was difficult to stay awake in his class. At that moment, I decided that I would never teach like this professor, that my teaching would never be so boring, and if it ever became that ...

Linda is an excellent teacher whose commitment and dedication is excellent.

I supervised Linda as she worked as a naturalist leading thousands of school children through a variety of nature themed subjects. She was able to ensure each student understood the topic and was an claiming presence during the programs.

I recommend Linda for any teaching assignment she endeavors to undertake.
Rob
I was glad to work with Linda while she was the Naturalist at Placer Nature Center. She brought many strengths to the position, which I had seen filled by others before her.
Her full career in education prepared her to make sense of the lightly organized accumulation of resources that she had to work with and to rationalize them to the needs and realities of the program pre-COVID-19. She reviewed, reorganized and rewrote lessons and programs as needed and was able to communicate clearly with the various volunteers, interns and staff.
Linda is very committed to children, which was evident in her faithfully meeting each group personally to make them welcome and be sure they remained safe. During a period when she could walk only with effort and support, she smilingly led nature walks and kept her teaching skills fresh.
Linda is a dedicated teacher whose classes are sure to be the best!
Caroline
I have worked with Linda as a docent with a nature center in Auburn, California.
Linda was able to write very descriptive lesson plans taken from we docents working with children at the nature center. Linda took all of our experiences in sharing programs and wrote comprehensive lesson plans.
Linda is enjoyable and easy with which to work.

I was very nervous ahead of time but Brenda far exceeded my expectations! She is a very kind soul and made me feel comfortable. She is adapting the material to how I perceive and learn which feels extremely good! I wish more people in the world taught the way she teaches :)

Brenda is an excellent teacher and my daughter has been playing the piano beautifully. Brenda takes the time with Victoria to explain the music and make sure she understands before moving to another section.
I'm sure any child would benefit from her teaching skills

I have been through a multitude of instructors on other sites with horrid results and Mario is a keeper! He is organized, took the time to ask what I was looking to accomplish and then did some testing to see where I really was in the language on various levels. I am very much looking forward to advancing my french with Mario.

In my French lessons, Isabelle has worked with me on pronunciation, reading, vocabulary and syntax. Isabelle is always patient and shows a strong command of french and how to convey concepts. I really appreciate & enjoy my lessons with Isabelle.
Kathryn
Just finished my 4th class with Isabelle. She has been very helpful with my French conversation. She meets me at my level and then challenges me. She speaks clearly and at a speed I can understand. The notes after the lesson are excellent and help me to continue my learning. I highly recommend Isabelle!
Brian
"Listener" is how I would describe Isabelle, and it's why she is a great teacher. I brought a lot of random questions into lessons each week and she helped me with all of the answers. She also used the answers to my questions to show me further examples to be able to help me frame why things were the way they were. This is my first French teacher but I couldn't be happier with the time I've gotten from Isabelle. I would highly recommend her as a teacher.

I was born in Vienna, Austria to Nigerian parents. I grew up partly in Nigeria, and Austria. English is one of three languages I speak fluently. Having lived in different parts of the world, I know what it is like to be new somewhere, or unable to communicate effectively due to a language barrier. I currently work for a major United States airline as an international Flight Attendant because I have a passion for helping people, getting to know other places, and learning about different cultures. I am excited to share my knowledge, and help YOU learn English.

"I hired Henry to teach English for my little daughter. The reason i have chose him was he was the only one on the list who accept half hour lessons. I wanted to see şf he is good. I was gonna rşse to one hour if i like. And his hourly rate was reasonable too. We met and he was perfect. After my daughter we have studied with him. He has provided fastest improvement on my special purpose of need. It is really not common to see this passionate teachers around. His academic approach to your need and support with newest material in the maket was excellent. I think he is ahead of others because of his major. A senior jounalist, a TV person... he helped me a lot for my journalism career too... So i definitely can call him An excellent career coach. While i was trying to be on time with my project in Los Angeles, i was the lucky one to meet him through takelessons.com. He gave me what i need only at three weeks. We together focused on my certain project's needs and after i was ready to move alone almost. He is great to teach on bussiness emails, phone conversations, expressing your basic work situation etc.
He is great on accent reduction too. While i wrote this review my concerns is he will see and will find anything to correct... But he also has taught me to be courage enough too... Thank you Henry for everything you have done. I am a freelance foreign journalist in LA. He did his best for me both as a teacher and colleague. And such a good heart... Even if you don't share same opinions on any affair he respect you and try to give his best and more than what you have paid. He is patient too."

"Hello,
When I moved from Russia to US in 2011, my English was at beginner’s level and I desperately needed to start speaking this language as soon as possible: especially for my job but also for my every day life.
I tried to take some ESL classes at local colleges and also study with a tutor but it did not work very well. Instead I became more afraid of making mistakes or saying something not correctly. I was frustrated and started to think that I am just not made for learning new languages.
I heard about Roman from my colleague who did intensive French language program designed and taught by mr. Nam. So he told me that Roman also teaches ESL. I decided to give it a try.
After three months of classes with Roman my English improved so much! From the beginning of classes I started to feel so motivated and everything was explained in really simple way. I don’t really understand how Roman was doing this but every class and even every homework was so interesting and so fun to do. I loved to hear myself speak English better and better. I started to use my english in any situation and I felt so confident.
Now, after four years living in US my English is much better but i know that the most important step in my progress was the program I did with Roman and I am very thankful for all his help."

The Complete List of English Idioms, Proverbs, & Expressions

Although English idioms don't make sense at first, these unique expressions (together with proverbs) add substance and humor to our conversations. The Oxford Dictionary defines the word "idiom" as a: "group of words established by usage as having a meaning not deducible from those of the individual words (e.g. over the moon, see the light)." This means that English idioms should not be taken literally, because their meaning is metaphorical. You don't really wish someone would “break a …
