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.

Q&A:

Q.: Do you teach bi-weekly lessons?

A.: No, I do not give bi-weekly lessons, and require all of my students to take at least 4 lessons a month to be able to join my studio.

Q.: What happens if I miss a lesson?

A.: My studio policy is that all of my students are required to give me an at least 24-hour notice if they will be missing their lesson for any reason with the exception of illness or family emergencies. It is the student's responsibility to reschedule the lesson for the same week, or their lesson time will be charged in full. For illnesses and family emergencies I will require a doctor's note or a short letter explaining the reason behind their ...

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 emphasis is on a dialogue-driven and media-enriched introduction to 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 towards native proficiency.
For example, I use a customized curriculum addressing frequently requested topics, as family, travel, outdoor, seasons, and other variable themes. 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 to complement each lesson. My multimedia approach that coordinates sound, visual, and online resource, as Easy English and Google Earth, connects to the global, international significance of the language.
I have facilitated learning for diverse age levels, as children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. I have years of experience teaching ESL/English at public ...

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
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.

Susan is a fantastic and committed teacher.
Rachel
I had a college language placement exam looming, so I signed up for 10 lessons with Susan to help me review and prep for the exam. I ended up testing out of two semesters of college-level German, which was even better than I had hoped for! I couldn't have done it without Susan. She was fantastic at explaining the tricky subjects, like accusative vs. dative cases, and helped me rigorously review all of the material. Plus, learning with her was fun, and I looked forward to the lesson every week.
Darya and Daniel V.
She is very kind,knowledgeable teacher and she is very good with kids.

"First, I AM NOT LEARNING ENGLISH. I have tried to explain this to Take Lessons, but they schedule it as ESL. I am from New York, learning Creole to prepare for my boys from Haiti arriving this summer. Alain is amazing. He is encouraging, flexible in design and instruction for each session, makes sure you have correct pronunciation and understand why one construction is better than another or why another word is best due to the most common dialects in Haiti. This was especially important as I knew some other words that were not as common but just particular to the small region my previous tutor was from. I strongly recommend Alain for your needs as an adult and also any children or teens."
