Charlie is the most patient and musical music teacher I have ever experienced and I am old! His approach to teaching is first rate. He is incredibly knowledgeable about all forms of music.
Larry B
This guy is incredible. He creates a safe space where you feel inspired to improvise and experiment with music. He showed me songs that changed my music taste and playing style completely. The best part of learning with him is that it feels like you are jamming with a good friend. He not only is an incredible musician but also a great mentor. I have only good things to say about Charlie
Kevin
Charlie McClaren is one of the greatest music teachers I've ever had. Learning music with him never felt like a chore, rather it was a journey we shared. He's patient and understanding, but he'll make sure you understand the music thoroughly. He showed me that music was more than an art form, it's a lens you see the world through. I can't recommend Charlie enough, no matter where you are on your musical journey, he'll take you to the next level!

Learn English in Boston

About 1.5 billion people speak English, making it the most widely spoken language. Fewer than 400,000 English speakers, however, are actually native English speakers. English is one of the six official languages of the United Nations, and it's also one of the two official languages used on the International Space Station.

Over a billion people have learned English as a second (third, fourth, or fifth) language, and even more are learning it today. So when it comes to conjugating irregular English verbs or learning the language's numerous idioms - don’t fret. If you're hoping to study ESL in Boston, you’ll be surrounded by a supportive community and many qualified English teachers!

Why Take ESL Classes in Boston?

About one-third of Boston residents speak a language other than English at home. So, the city is ripe with resources for ESL students. Plus, you'll have plenty of non-native English speakers looking for others to practice English conversation with.

Several world-renowned institutes of higher education, such as Harvard, Boston College, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, are located in Boston and the surrounding areas. This makes it a wonderful and inviting setting to study new things. While you learn English in Boston, you'll be surrounded by thousands of other students who are serious about learning.

In addition, Boston is also a great place to experience American culture and history first-hand. You can always catch a Boston Red Sox game, or for a snippet of history, see the ships in Boston Harbor and visit the legendary Paul Revere House!

Selecting an ESL Teacher in Boston

In our directory, you'll find dozens of qualified tutors who teach English as a second language in Boston. Our vast selection allows for the flexibility to choose a native English speaker or a teacher who also speaks your first language. Additionally, many of our experienced tutors have their TEFL certification, current teaching license, and a college degree. 

One of our top-rated ESL tutors, Rosita R., teaches students of all ages and skill levels. She has hundreds of positive reviews from current and former students. One five-star review reads, "Best English teacher! She provides not only scripts but mp3s that I can download. The mini conversations that we go over every week help me a lot. I love learning English with her!"

When learning English in Boston with a private tutor, you’ll be able to focus and stay motivated with lessons customized to your interests and goals. Whether you’re studying English for school or business, an English tutor in Boston will help you master the language quickly and efficiently.

Where to Take English Classes in Boston

With TakeLessons, you can schedule Boston English classes at any time and any place that works for you, including your home. From Charlestown to Jamaica Plain, you can also take advantage of the city's sights while you study English in Boston. Meet your tutor at one of the many local parks, or grab lunch at Boston Chowda Co. and people-watch.

If you decide to enroll in online English classes in Boston, you'll need a strong internet connection and a quiet location for chatting with your tutor. Venture out to a private meeting room at the Boston Public Library or grab a table at Trident Booksellers and Cafe. You can also enjoy learning from the comfort of your own home.

Making the Most of Boston English Classes

There are a few ways you can prepare for your first English lesson. You can acquire all the supplies you’ll need (such as a notebook, note cards, pens, and highlighters) at a local store like Black Ink. 

Then, drop into the Boston Public Library to check out an English dictionary and a few comic books for fun reading practice. If you’d like something to keep, browse the thoughtfully curated shelves of Papercuts J.P. to select an enticing book in English. Make it your personal goal to learn how to read it from cover to cover!

Once you've had a couple of ESL classes in Boston, it’s best to start practicing your speaking skills with others who are learning English, too. There are several local clubs and groups with hundreds of members who get together regularly to make new friends and practice their English. 

To work on your listening comprehension, grab your new friends and have a chuckle over a comedy set at Laugh Boston. There are so many fun ways to use your newfound language skills in this city. However you plan to put your English to use, studying ESL in Boston with a private tutor will help you achieve fluency in no time!
