“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.

Marianne B.


Bgcheck Background Checked

Private ESL Teacher

English is a difficult language to learn. I am a patient, thorough teacher and I tailor my lessons to what a student wants to focus on.

About Marianne

I am passionate about French and all things French and I love helping students learn or improve their skills. I explain things clearly so that students understand, I am patient and I make learning French fun rather than a chore. It can be intimidating to learn another language and I understand that very well as I have been improving my French since I was in high school. I structure my lesson plans specifically around what a student wants to learn and how s/he wants to learn it. We will go as slow or fast through the material as you'd like,

I was a Fresh major in college, did graduate work in France, worked for a French company and taught middle school French for many years. I loved being a teacher and I loved my students! I led several student trips to France and I treasure those experiences. One of my former French students wrote to

me when I retired: "You are the best teacher I ever had. You and your class were the only bright spots in all of middle school and I will never forget what you taught me."

I have also taught adults planning to travel to France or who are simply interested the basics of the language as well as cultural tips.

I would love to meet and help you!

September 13, 2019
I wanted to learn French for a business trip, but I was dreading it because I struggled with languages so much in high school. After working with Marianne, I was pleasantly surprised with how much easier it was than I expected. She really adapted to me and helped me figure out the best ways to learn. And she's very patient. Highly recommend!
September 13, 2019
Incroyable! Marianne has the patience of a saint! She loves French and teaching and it shows in how she worked with me. I really appreciate her creative approach in making the language come to life which makes it so much easier. And she tailors her lessons to what you want and how you best learn. If you want to learn French, I highly recommend working with Madame Bohr!
September 4, 2019
Madame Bohr is by far one of the best instructors I’ve ever had. She truly cares about her students, and does everything that she can to make sure that they fully comprehend the material. She made learning French not only simple and straight-forward, but even fun. I would most definitely recommend her to anybody interested in learning the language!

Nicole S.


Bgcheck Background Checked

Private ESL Teacher

I am a native English speaker, and my graduate degrees in musicology are extremely reading and writing intensive. As a result, I have an advanced knowledge of the English language. If you want to learn English as a second language, I would love to help! Within the first few lessons, you'll start speaking simple sentences, and as time goes on, you'll start learning the inner workings of the English language. I tailor my teaching to the individual needs and goals of each student so that my lessons can be fun and enjoyable and informative.

About Nicole

I am a professional musician who has been performing and studying for over 10 years. I received my BM in Vocal Performance and Spanish from St. Norbert College in 2014 and my MM in Musicology from Florida State University in 2016. I am currently working on my PhD in Musicology where I am focusing my research on Cuban music.

Though my graduate education was centered primarily on research, I continued studying voice and began focusing on world music styles. I learned Portuguese, in addition to Spanish, and picked up several other world music instruments as well. During this time, I also began to focus more on teaching and pedagogy. I discovered that I had a passion for teaching and mentoring aside from my own performing and music making.

Since I have a degree in voice performance, I primarily teach voice to all levels of students. Howev

er, I also studied classical piano and can teach beginner-intermediate piano as well. I teach these in my home studio and online. I also have a passion for education and music education in general and can teach/tutor/mentor in music theory, musicology, general education, and languages including English, Spanish, and Portuguese.

My teaching philosophy is based on a student-centered approach. I tailor each lesson to the individual student, taking into account their needs, experience, skill levels, and personal goals. My aim is to help you improve and have a good and fun experience doing so!

October 15, 2019
Nikki genuinely cares about her students and their success and will do everything she can to help them achieve her goals. She is patient and understanding, and strives to adapt her teaching methods to best fit the needs and learning styles of her students. I would reccomend her to anyone.
October 4, 2019
Nicole was my instructor in an American Roots Music class at Florida State University this past spring semester. While I'm not a student that is studying music performance or education in any form, I can confidently speak to the passion and dedication that she brings to the work that she does. She was always more than willing to work with me around my other obligations as an involved college student while still pushing me to pursue learning and engaging in ethnomusicology. Beyond her skill in her areas of focus, any student would be lucky to work with Nicole if only for how much she cares for the students she works with.
October 3, 2019
Nicole is a wonderful teacher who is passionate, patient, and encouraging to students. She is not only very knowledgeable about the voice and vocal technique, but also has a thorough understanding of music theory and experience performing various types of musical genres.

Private ESL Teacher

I have taught professionally for 16 years. I am an exciting, vibrant teacher for students of ALL ability levels. I enjoy teaching ESL. I can make the lessons fun and exciting for you.

About Sonia

I am a dynamic and results oriented teacher who can make learning fun and worthwhile for you. I have a passion for learning and for teaching the fundamentals of the English language. I do have experience with teaching students that have special learning needs as well. So I do know how to adapt and modify curriculum to meet the needs of any student.


September 20, 2019
Sonia is so very kind to my son. He has not had a good expereince in school with learning how to read. She took his sour attitude and turned it around to something sweet. Now I have a child that loves coming to her sessions. He even asks to come on Saturdays. His grade levels have risen on the state assessments from a 1.2 to 3.1 in less than 6 months.
September 20, 2019
Sonia has instructed my daughter since 2016. My daughter has an IEP for reading and the school was not helping her improve her reading skills to grade level. In our state if one does not pass the end of grade assessment in reading, you are retained in that grade level. Sonia was able to assit my daughter in being promted to the next grade. She helped my daughter bring her scores up 2 grade levels in 1 year. I call that success!
September 19, 2019
My son has received instruction from Sonia for 4 years. She is ever so patient, kind, and friendly. She makes learning a boring subject like math fun. My son's math anxiety has lessened due to her methods and I hope she can continue working with him in the future.

"Kristen is a wonderful teacher! She is teaching me and a friend at the same time and we both love the classes."
"Beverly is the best ever teacher I've met. She taught me the way to express my thoughts more like the native speaker, and she also helps me with every det
ail in pronunciations, grammars etc. I really enjoyed taking her classes and always learn a lot!"

"I only have a level of English, almost do not understand, but a very great teacher, again and again said to me until I understand, teach me how to write s
entence and grammar. Thank you teacher. 🌷"
"VERY pleased with our first lesson and excited for next week!"
"I feel very lucky that she be my daughter ‘s ESL teacher."
"Melissa is a miracle worker! My mother-in-law moved to the United States 40 years ago unable to speak english and while she has done a good job at learni
ng on her own, she had significant gaps in her ability to effectively communicate. For her 68th birthday, I bought her lessons with Melissa. My mother-in-law told me I was wasting my money because she couldn't learn anything new. Well, needless to say, she can learn and with Melissa's excellent tutelage has dramatically increased her ability to speak and comprehend english. This has enabled a new level of confidence and freedom that she did not previously have and is a game changer for her. I attribute her improvement directly to Melissa's ability to understand her student's needs and personalities and craft and deliver a quality, tailored curriculum. After our first round of classes, my mother-in-law is excited to continue the lessons and has a renewed curiosity and interest in learning. Great job and thank you Melissa!!!"
