I've been teaching English for 7 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of the American culture, study abroad, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate like a pro!

About Daniel

I love teaching, I can teach you at where you at and take you where you need to be. I only need a student with the desire to learn and to practice.

I like to help students realize they have the intelligence and ability to solve the problems on their own, they just need the right direction. Nothing is too difficult once we understand how to do it!

About Melina

Howdy! I'm from San Antonio, Texas in the United States. I speak English with a neutral American accent, I also speak Spanish fluently. I have also had the pleasure to work with many Brazilian students over the past 4 years, so I can communicate in Portuguese a little. I like to travel, dance, read books, and play with my two dogs. I enjoy teaching because it allows me to meet many people from around the world and learn about different cultures. I look forward to meeting you.

Are you having trouble mastering the English language? I am a certified TESOL teacher and have been teaching ESL all over the world since 2010. I teach all levels from beginner to advanced and all ages from 8 to 88. I have a bachelor's and a master's degree in linguistics and can speak several foreign languages myself, so I know where language learners are coming from and can explain how to break down the language so that it's not quite so hard to learn! I look forward to helping you to perfect your English skills!

About Emily

Are you looking to brush up your English skills or try your hand at learning French or German? I would be delighted to help you find your way in navigating these tricky languages.

Allow me to tell you about myself. I am a certified and experienced ESL teacher who has traveled the globe and shared her skills abroad. I have a bachelor's degree in linguistics from Boston University and a master's degree in the same from the Free University in Berlin, Germany. My first experience with teaching was giving private English lessons to children in France in 2005. I later obtained my TESOL certificate from ITTT in 2010 while I was volunteering in a refugee English class in Denver. The following year I taught ESL to foreign boarding students at a high school in Maine. While living in Germany I taught adult English classes at public community col

leges and children's English classes at an after school club, as well as multiple private lessons. Additionally, I taught ESL to native French-speaking children and adults at a private school in Switzerland. I have also volunteer taught at English camps for refugee adults and children in Lebanon. Like I said, I've been privileged to offer my skills all over the globe!

I speak both French and German fluently and can teach in these languages if need be, but mostly, having studied linguistics and other languages such as Russian and Arabic, I understand what it's like to be a foreign language learner. I studied the construction of languages and can easily break them down into their parts so that they are easier to wrap your head around.

My skills are not limited to teaching English only, but I am also an experienced proofreader and editor. I have edited myriad documents not only for private individuals but also in the academic and professional sectors. So if you need help with writing or are looking for someone to proofread your written works, I would be happy to offer this service.

Finally, as previously mentioned, I'm fluent in both French and German and am happy to help beginner and intermediate learners acquire these languages. Or if you just want someone to practice your skills with I can serve as your conversational partner! I love giving private lessons because that way I can connect with each student individually and tailor the lesson especially to meet his or her needs!

I look forward to meeting you and guiding you along your linguistic journey!

Want to master American English for business, for school or for life? Well, I've got the secret code. Here's the deal. For over 15 years, I've been turning English learners from all over the world to confident English speakers. Professionals, students, and entrepreneurs. I use a fun and effective contextual approach. This means you acquire the language naturally, as we discuss a topic relevant to your interests and needs. I'll also help you to understand American culture and to master the natural speaking patterns used by North Americans. So if that sounds cool, check me out here on TakeLessons.

About Paul

I’m a TESOL Certified English Communication Coach and educational Content Creator. I come from an Argentine family, and grew up in Miami Beach, so I'm fully bilingual. I have a degree in audiovisual media and communication, and earlier in my career, I worked as a television writer and producer. In my free time, I enjoy running, music and journeying into fascinating worlds via stories.

But stories are much more than something I enjoy in my free time. I believe stories are the most powerful form of communication. So powerful they can transform any message, vision or experience into something meaningful and memorable. TED Talks are a perfect example of this. Imagine if most business communication had this power, this energy.

That is why I created an approach to English Mastery called Storylingo. It’s a story-based approach to English commu

nication that has allowed me to help hundreds of professionals and job candidates from all over the world achieve their business communication goals in English.

The result is speakers of English as a foreign language that can communicate their ideas in a way that is clear and engaging. Storylingo is available as a workshop, as personalized coaching and soon, as an online course. I’ve used this system of training at leading organizations including Santander Group, Siemens, and Alibaba.

Hi,

So why choose me? Well:

1) I'm was born in Russia, came to Canada when i was 14. To the french part of Canada. So I learned French first (on an OK level). Then, my parents decided to move to the English part of Canada where nobody spoke French or Russian so i had to learn English from zero. I had a friend who helped me practice with him and i know how helpful it can be! I finished high school, went to university, worked in a few places, now have a business, so i know English very well. I also know what it feels like not to know English at all! So i think i can really help a person out. I was in ESL myself too for 2 years! I know what works and i know what doesn't. You'll love our lessons!

2) So my grandma came from Russia and decided to start learning English at 75 years old! My parents signed her up for classes. I visit 2 times a week and we do her homework together. Did you ever teach an old person how to use the internet? Imagine teaching them a new language! So i promise ...

About Igor

Hi again,

(by the way, i'm writing this assuming addressing the person that i will work with, if you're a parent or somebody else reading this, please imagine you were the one that needs this service).

So in the previous section i think i described myself pretty thoroughly. I will use this section to let you know what you can expect from me, so you have a better idea of who i am and what i can do for you.

I will focus on YOUR needs

What does that mean? I remember when i was learning English and they were teaching me a lot of irrelevant stuff. I learned things like: " Sally likes apples and Bob likes cakes" It's all nice, but what i really wanted to know was what to say to a teacher when i want to go to the washroom. But nobody ever asked me what i want to learn, they just told me what i should learn. And that's fine, there is a plac

e for practicing things like "Sally likes apples", but if you have an area where you want to improve in. Tell me and we'll practice. We can roleplay! I will ask you questions and you will try to answer as best you can and i will correct you. I will talk with you in English like i would talk to a friend (like my friend did to me when i was learning English) and you will pick it up much faster! I will go as slow or as fast as you can handle. You can tell me about your day. Or ask questions. We will try a few things and find what works for you!

I am a fan of compound learning.

What does that mean? Here is an example! We can learn what the words: apple. Juice. I. Want. are individually. ORRRR we can learn a sentence of: I want apple juice. Instead of trying to make your brain remember 4 objects separately, you will only have to remember 1 object that contains all of those smaller objects. That speeds up learning a lot. Of course, it depends on your level. And we will start with the very basic stuff. But as soon as you get the basics, we will move on to this. And before you know it, you will start speaking in complete sentences. And once you speak, you will read, write and be on your way to think in English.

I will be patient with you!

I will go at the speed that you can handle. There will be homework too!

“Ohh la la la”, that’s the sound when you comfortable reading along. “Ohh la la la”, you’ll be learning English by singing songs. “Ohh la la la la lalalalala”, come and join along and let me show you how it’s done, yeah.

Learning any new language can sometimes be very frustrating, especially when there are so many rules and conducts of speech one must remember to follow.

Within this ESL lesson, we will be taking the bore out of chore. Book a lesson today and get ready to find your groove as we create and remake lyrics to popular melodies all while learning the basic elementals of the English language. These lessons are perfect for beginners!

About Cierra

Greetings Earthlings, class is in session. Ok time for our first POP QUIZ! See your questions below. (There is a right or wrong answer, but only you will know if it’s correct or not.)

Question 1.: Who are you?

Question 2.: Who or what did you want to be prior to any doubt of becoming that was brought to your awareness?

Question 3.: Does it bother you to have fun while learning? (This is not a trick question.)

Well, there you go. So, how did you do? Remember, only you can really answer these specific questions. When it comes to exploring self, which most of my lessons extends from, understanding and being honest with whom, what and where you are is the first step in opening yourself up to learning and evolving.

Learning should be fun an exciting. There’s also a sense of freedom that should come along with the power of obtaining new me

ntal tools for life. Your life.

"Joy is by far the world's greatest ESL teacher.

She was my first ESL teacher when I was in college. She had extensive experience with foreign students
and knew how to apply her professional teaching skills to individual students to maximize each students' potential abilities by repeatedly correcting mistakes in detail.
She handed out her own material every week and her material is by far the essence of English for ESL students. Once I went through her materials with her for about a year, my English has improved incredibly.
She is open mind and patient so do not rush students to get anxiety. She is my lifetime companion and the best teacher.
I am confident to recommend her. Do not miss the chance of a lifetime to meet the greatest English teacher."
