Private ESL Teacher

Experienced ESL teacher and a Certified Language Coach, trainer for professionals and open-minded individuals, who are ready for a change, ready to move on with English language learning to another level and get the results. I structure my sessions so clients learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation, I help you to set achievable goals, to find your unique motivation and your learning style, I typically don’t use books at our sessions as I believe that through structured conversation and practice you learn much more, you can still use books for selfstudy and review between the sessions! I am using mind maps, online platforms to make our sessions fun, interesting and super efficient!

Zhao Yang is the perfect teacher. She is attentative, patient, thorough, encouraging, and extremely informative. I am so glad that I chose to learn from her. She assessed my knowledge of Mandarin in the very first lesson.

The lessons are tailored to my interests and learning style. Not every teacher has the ability to teach in a way that caters to an individual's learning needs and abilities. Having this ability makes Zhao Yang (feichang hao!) great! Each session, she reviews what was taught in the previous lesson and homework given. She also gives me a game plan on what I should practice as well as tools that I'll need to help me practice. I feel more and more confident after each lesson. I really appreciate Zhao Yang!!!

Zhao is an excellent teacher. She is patient and really understands how to present the material in a way that is easy to learn. I highly recommend!

Evgeniya is an amazing Russian teacher! I am an English speaker, and I live in a place where Russian is widely spoken. I have tried a few times to learn Russian, and this is the first time that I am optimistic that I will progress in learning to be more conversational. I would recommend this class to anyone!

I teach English as a second language. With me you will learn how to sound like a native speakers and pick up great conversational skills and transitions.
One thing I love about teaching is bringing the arts into the process of learning. We may sing in the language and even paint to help learn. I've taught younger than Kindergarten all the way to adults, so feel comfortable that you'll grow in advanced conversational skills, as well as, beginner vocabulary. Let me highlight that I'm passionate about "phonetics," which is the study and classification of speech sounds. In other words, you are going to learn how to sound like a native speaker when you take my class.

Having taught English as a second language in Tokyo and at a Korean English School here in the Dallas area, I understand how difficult it can be to learn this language. My passion is to encourage and empower others to live their best life, and effective communication skills are essential. My teaching style is caring and compassionate, as I strive to help my students gain the confidence necessary to achieve their dreams.

Hello, welcome to my studio ! I myself am not a native speaker as I arrived in the US to live permanently when I was 7 years old. However, through my acclimation and diligent studies, I'm glad that I'm now fluent and proficient enough to believe that I can teach ESL in the beginning and intermediate levels. I have 2 summers of teaching experience teaching ESL overseas to Chinese students as well as teaching Citizenship class to immigrants. Learning English is not just about learning the words, but practicing listening and speaking in conversation. I excelled in spelling in elementary school and vocabulary in middle and high school (memorizing word-for-word on the definitions), helping me to excel in my grades and exams during those years. Hopefully, you can get some helpful learning tricks from me!

Please note: I have had a successful background check recently in Canada. If you would like to take lessons but would like to verify or get an update of my background check status

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 ...
