I know learning a new language can be intimidating at first but as your language coach,you'll see learning can be comfortable and fun! In my classes, all classes are recorded ( they are private!) I find that our recorded lessons are going to be a great reference when you are practicing and it enhances the atmosphere by you seeing how much you have improved. Every week we will have a conversation based on what we have learned in our prior lessons. You will have access to powerpoints, scripts, recorded lessons and more! If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask! Just click the "ask a question" above or contact TakeLessons today!

I'll be glad to help if you want to improve your English (conversation, writing, reading, comprehension, pronunciation), become more motivated, or gain more tips on how to learn languages.

Become a more natural and fluent speaker and writer in English! I've helped many students, and I can help you, too. Book a lesson today, and I'll show you how!

If you're like a lot of my students, you want to improve your English because you:

- have a job interview in English
- you want to apply for a promotion at work
- you have to take an IELTS exam
- you want to attend university or grad school in an English-speaking country, but your English isn't good enough yet because...

you're still translating in your head.

or it takes you a long time to think of what you want to say, and you still make a lot of errors when you speak.

or you use the same simple vocabulary words over and over in your speaking and writing.

or you've taken the IELTS exam a few times already, and haven't gotten a score you want.

I completely understand how frustrating that can be! So, what's the solution? Customized lessons with a dedicated teacher who uses authentic, interesting ...

Mariel
Marta was extremely helpful in improving my writing skills! I am in the process of applying for grad school, which requires a self-reflective and well thought out personal statement. Marta made sure I answered the prompt completely, helped make my paper more specific and meaningful, and corrected grammar and sentence structure to make it more readable. Her guidance made me more confident in my writing and expressing my thoughts. She is an excellent teacher!
Jin-Bo
Marta is an amazing teacher. She is patient that she would always listen very carefully to what I was going to say. One of our common interests is watching movies and series, so we spent a lot of time discussing them and exchanging our favorite shows. The classes with Marta were always helpful and relaxing. I really enjoyed the lessons and learned so much from her!

Hello! Hope you're doing great! :) I'm from Orlando Florida, I have a Bachelor's degree in Music and have been teaching for almost 8 years. My first experience as an ESL teacher began in South America (Colombia), with a project that combined the two things that I love the most, music and English. During that time I realised that music provided great tools so the students could learn English in a fun way. Learning a new language is such an exciting journey, and teaching makes me extremely happy. It doesn't matter if you are at a beginner, or intermediate level, I would be delighted to be your mentor. Hope to see you soon!

P.S. I have been teaching English online for more than 5 years.
