About Erol G.

Close
Panorama City, CA

View Full Profile

I have 5-7 years experience teaching English at public and private educational settings, including college, university, and library. My specialization is in American English accent reduction for non-native speakers. I use multi-media teaching strategies.

Possibly the only dedicated PhD for E-Learning on the TakeLessons server, I am member of the Association for Language Learning, located in Leicester, UK.

About Erol
***ADDRESSES WITHIN REMOTE AREAS (no public transit or bicycle access) DIFFICULT TO SERVICE PHYSICALLY. Lesson cancellations and schedule changes need to be submitted through Takelessons.com student website, relieve busy teacher from multiple informal requests***

My style and attitude toward teaching is a balance between subject delivery and reflective, supportive interaction. I seek to enable current research on education for busy, yet goal-driven student interests. This is done through customized online lessons coordinating the experience with optimal resources and tools. Examples are helping ESL students to monitor their own phonic issues with dedicated software/feedback, guiding German students through conversational dialogues, and customizing Excel and related productivity lessons.

Due to my limited funds, I do not have direc
t experience with the Adobe suite, but I have extensive knowledge of related, free distributions that are transferable. Possibly the only PhD on Takelessons server from a regionally accredited university, I am a member of the American Council on Foreign Language Learning and the Association for Language Learning.
My most popular subjects are as follows:

North American English Pronunciation Practice for ESL (NAEPP-ESL) or Accent-Reduction:
*****Each Online Lesson with Free Video & MP3 recordings, and about 50 GB onedrive folder for lesson files*****

Carefully following Burkkowsky's (1969) multi-media method, I have taught this subject for over five years for public and private causes, such as library, individuals, and language schools. German Language and Culture:
*****Each Online Lesson with Free Video & MP3 Recordings and about 50 GB onedrive folder for lesson files*****

Microsoft Excel:
***It is recommended students own or have regular access to a personal computer after 2002 in order to get the best benefit***

My training at a technical school in India was mostly about the skills nobody else has with the idea that this is competitive. Then I couldn't even create dashboards or present my data impressively. This teacher gives you all the in-demand features with examples to clarify your data in practical settings. Erol also puts in effort to send recordings and related files. May also consider accent training with him. Thanks!

I have pretty good experience with Erol so far. In first session we have some issue with the zoom and microphone, so we were not able to complete the whole 1 hour session, But Erol gave me extra makeover session.

I have been teaching English for nearly 10 years abroad and domestically. I am an international student myself in the past and my passion for English brought me here to the US. Currently, I teach at one of the biggest universities in San Diego introducing my most favorite language to students all over the world. I helped hundreds of students enter American universities and colleges and improve their academic skills. I enjoy teaching English, and I love creating fun and effective classes no matter which level of students I work with. If you feel frustrated about Grammar, IELTS, TOEFL or any other skills in English, I am here to make it very simple and enjoyable for you! :)

About Jay
Hi. My name is Jay, and I am from sunny San Diego. There are so many things I can tell you about myself but I will just say that I am a very active and goal oriented person. I love being disciplined and focused on everything I do whether it's going to the gym, running a marathon, teaching my students, etc. I believe that everything I do daily brings me closer to my ultimate goals. For this reason, I take self-development seriously. I love tutoring various students because it gives me a chance to meet many like-minded individuals who constantly want to work on themselves and get better. It is very rewarding for me to work hard and see my students grow and achieve their goals. A comfortable and friendly environment is the most important part of my teaching. If you are looking for someone who can motivate you to learn English and stay on tas
k, you found the right girl! :)

I look back upon that time as so important in the development of the person that I am today, Teacher Jay changed my whole aspect on my learning. She taught me more than I could have imagined, both about academics and about myself, I wouldn't be where I am today without her. I am so glad to have her in my life , without her I couldn't pass my Ielts Exam, and I have no doubt it was her help that made the difference. She has a strong background about Ielts, Tofel, and others, her techniques and strategy are amazing, she has an excellent resources. I never really believed that I could do well in Ielts, She opened my eyes to what I could be, what I could do in a way that I've never thought possible. Jay tough me meaningful things Such as make a smart decision, never be a fraid to make mistakes, give respect. She tought me that I could achieve more than what I or other people thought that I was capable of. I still remember one lesson where she told me about her hopes for her future, she also told me about her successes, and for some reason, it all resonated with me, and I started to relize that anything really is possible. we became friends and we still keep in touch.
To teacher Jay:
Thank you for staying behind to help me, even I know there are lots of other places you'd rather be.
Thank you for explaining things until I understand.
Thank you for being my teacher and my friend.
Thank you for your kidness and respect.
Thank you isn't really enough to express my gratitude to you.

I learned a lot from Jay’s classes, she helped me with all the linguistic difficulties that any student who doesn’t speak the English Language as thier native language may face. She understand the linguistic barriers of the the non-native English speakers and she knows how to deal with them. The best part of her way of teaching is how she gradually and smoothly moves the ESL students from a basic English level to a higher one!! Challenging the students to give thier best and more for learning purposes is really difficult specially when teaching students from all over the world with huge cultural differences but it is not difficult for a Skilled teacher as Jay!!

She is the best teacher I’ve ever met!

As an ESL student myself, I understand the struggles that English language can provide. That is why I try to help all of my ESL friends to improve their english, as I was once helped. I love languages because learning and mustering a new languages opens a new world of possibilities and broadens one's horizons.

About Artem
Hello dear students! My name is Artem and I'm 25 years old. I have been playing violin since I was 4 years old and am a freelance musician, composer and pedagogue.
I am passionate about teaching because I believe education and willingness to learn is an extremely important factor for personal development and success.
I was born and raised in Saint Petersburg, Russia and underwent intensive training in voice, violin, composition and piano. After winning the Frieburg Intenational Violin Competition in 2010, I was offered a full scholarship to study music at Dalhousie University at the age of sixteen. After moving to Canada I went through a 9-month intensive english learning program, so I know first hand how difficult it can be to learn a new language. This experience helped me understand the struggles that any ESL student goes through an
d discover new ways to teach Russian and English to others.
I am excited to get to know you and share my knowledge with you!

About Victoria
Hello, I'm Victoria. I'm a native Californian, and a graduated of Graziado School of Business, Pepperdine University, Malibu CA, with a BA in Business Management and a MBA with a concentration in Finance and Entrepreneurship.

During my time in college, I was privileged to gain a great deal of knowledge from some extremely talented and dedicated professors. Their extensive knowledge in their field of profession, real life experiences and the pure honest desire to help others reach their educational goals inspired me. So much so, it inspired me to use my talents to teach as well.

It first started with preparing my nephew for school, he was about 3 at the time, and now I teach my nieces age 4 and 6. I am a strong believer in early education for setting the bases in future educational success. With the knowledge I have gain I inspire and
share my gifts through teaching and tutoring with an approach that makes learning fun.

I'm excited to play a part in helping students grow and reach their fullest potential. I'm flexible and open to parent or student suggestions and resources they can provide. Feel free to contact me if you need more information or you would like to schedule a lesson. I look forward to working with you!

The adult student will learn both “American” english - including all of the many colloquial expressions. And the topics we will cover will be focused on American culture, including subjects of particular interest to the student.

About Jim
I am primarily interested in teaching adult students from overseas. The length of the course will depend entirely on the needs of the student. Although certain grammar rules will be taught, the focus will be on English “conversation”. We will discuss the daily experiences of navigating life in Southern California, including work and family circumstances.
