Savannah F.

I absolutely know what is needed for company standards and what is needed to create a not only educational but also entertaining atmosphere even when I am instructing and giving feedback online. I never let the barriers of being online become a barrier between motivating and encouraging students. I am also a very happy and humorous person which helps in grabbing student’s attention and keeping it for the lesson. I utilize props, articles on current and interesting events for discussion, planned and thought- provoking questions for conversation, games and visual images in my lessons. This has made me a well-liked teacher, which is a subtly valuable quality in this ESL industry. If students don't like you, then your success as a teacher in this environment will be low.

I always give my best and would love to be a part of your English teaching team. I believe that without a doubt

Lied is one of the best language teachers you can have. Learning a new language is always hard but the best thing about Lied is the way she caters to your speed as you adapt to the new language. You will definitely leave her class learning Portuguese.

Lied é uma pessoa amigável e as classes me ajudaram a melhor meu inglês na escrita, conversação e no acento. As aulas sempre divertidas e dinâmica. Foi um período de muito aprendizado até mesmo sobre cultura estadunidense. The best teacher ever.

"I had an amazing experience with Connor Frost on the trial lesson for the 'Online Introductory Mandarin' classes. I decided to take his classes right away. What I liked from him? Everything, but putting in words, he has a strong online methodology, he's Chinese-American (his English is native, for me it's like I'm learning Chinese and practicing my English at the same time), he's very professional, patient, friendly, and it's clear he has all expertise and tools to make anyone learn Mandarin. I'm having so much fun. I strongly recommend him. Try it, you're gonna love it. Thank you Connor."

"I started taking lessons about a month ago and so far it has been a very positive experience. My Japanese is at the intermediate and conversational level and I reached out to Sensei Yoshi to help me take my skills to a higher level. The teaching materials are very effective and Yoshi is very knowledgeable and supportive and is correcting my grammatical errors, which is exactly what I need. I signed up for 2 months' worth of lessons to start and will probably continue 3times a week for at least six months. I highly recommend Sensei Yoshi."

There are certainly some tricky words in the English language! And sometimes, people who have learned English as a second language mix up these words. Want to avoid making the same mistakes? Here are the words ESL learners misuse the most. Them, Those, and These "Them" is a pronoun that stands in the place of a plural noun. It is commonly used as the subject of a sentence, as in: Did you see them? or Have you seen the scissors? I used them to cut the labels off my T-shirts; now I can’t fin …
