Riverside, CA

View Full Profile

I’m a graduate of the University of Southern California, with my MAT in TESOL, and a B.A. in Dramatic Arts/Entrepreneurship. I’m thankful to have been awarded USC’s Jack Nicholson Award for Outstanding Undergraduate Actor. I use my theatre arts background to teach reading strategies, pronunciation, vocabulary, effective academic writing, and speaking.

For pronunciation, I work to make your listeners understand you better, placing an emphasis on the proper intonation and stress patterns.

He just concluded his second term as an English Language Fellow with the U.S. Department of State (2014-2016). Through projects set up by the U.S. Embassy, he worked directly with local teachers, students, and education professionals to enact meaningful and sustainable changes in the way English is taught.

I highly recommend Shaheed. I'm an ESL Toastmaster, need to improve my impromptu speaking skills. He customizes my lessons for my needs and recognizes what I need to work on. He is very professional, but his easy going and down to earth personality makes each session truly enjoyable. My fellow Toastmasters say I became quicker on my feet; I see results!

My niece, from oversea, has stayed with us in the USA for a few months. She has been taking lessons with Shaheed almost everyday for the past five weeks. She enjoys every lesson and has learned a lot since she started. She has mentioned that she wanted to continue the lessons if possible when she was back in her country. Shaheed recognizes her strength and weakness in her ability and customizes her lessons accordingly. He is very professional but yet funny and caring. Has a lot of tricks up his sleeve to keep her enagage. A top notch teacher. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for an ESL teacher.

Thank you so much Shaheed for wonderful lessons you have crafted for her.

I have taught English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) in Germany, Greece, and Turkey, and English as a Second Language (ESL) in California. In Germany, where I lived and worked for many years, I too had to learn a second language as a beginner to the level where I could function and work in a new society. So I teach from a student's point of view, understanding and sensitive to both the practical and emotional challenges you face.

About Laurel
As a teacher I recognize that all students have a predominant learning style, so I always work with each person as an individual, tailoring our lessons to discover and promote their innate abilities and interests. I am friendly and patient and work well with children of all ages as well as adults.

My background in English language training is extensive. I have a B.A. in English Literature, Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certification, along with ten years teaching experience in Europe and the Middle East. I also hold a M.Sc. in Biological Science.

My area of special expertise is writing, I can help anyone master the skill of expressing themselves effectively. I love grammar and can make it fun and easy to learn. I have developed curriculum and adapted existing teaching materials to fit students special needs.

Th
ese are areas of language training in which I excel:
• Grammar
• Reading Literacy (for both native speakers and ESL learners)
• Business and Vocational English
• Creative and Expository Writing
• English Conversation
• Exam Preparation
• Editing and Proofreading

I took a series of online creative writing lessons with Mrs. Taylor. She is one of the kindest and most intelligent persons I have worked with. She helped me find my writing style and patiently and carefully taught me about every aspect of creative writing. She told me not only about grammar and story structure, but also motivated and encouraged me to write a short story. From my first lesson with her, I knew that she is a gifted teacher, as she is knowledgeable and informed. Before taking lessons with her, I was writing in my journal, but now I have written my first piece. She provided meaningful and relevant ideas to help me find the flow of my story. Because of the excellent and exceptional way that she teaches, I have decided to continue with my creative writing.

I have taught ESL or English Second Language to all ages from toddlers to older adults. Classrooms full of teenagers. I really enjoy it and teach in a way that other teachers would never dream of. My approach is casual and pleasurable.

About Bryce
The best non native Spanish tutor/teacher -

I am a Spanish Language Consultant

I am a concierge tutor meaning that I make every meeting personalized for you. Everyone learns a language differently. For some they just want to speak. For others they want to learn to read or write. And some want to do it all. Either way I will do everything in my power to assure that happens.

Where did I learn Spanish?
I took it in high school like all of us and failed out in the second year. Then seven years later I took a class in Bellevue College and got the best grade in the class. Soon after the class finished I moved to Bogotá, Colombia for a year and half where I really improved my level to near native status. When I was a kid in high school I did not see how cool it is to be able to speak another language nor did I care. However, now it w
as a defining point in my life and something that no one can take away from me.

Because I am more expensive I have fewer clients which gives me more time to focus on you the student. My schedule is also very flexible giving you plenty of freedom over when to meet.

I am connected to a network of native speakers who are all my very close friends who can be included in the sessions when the time is right or whenever you may like.

I have been a Spanish Consultant since 2011 and love doing it. I really get fired up when students begin to take off on their own with the language with less and less of my help.

I don't think you will find a more passionate tutor in the area. The passion comes through in the lessons.

Students who will succeed with me can be of any age but should have these traits if they wish to excel:
Discipline
Not afraid to make mistakes
Positive attitudes
Open mind
Willingness to think outside of the box

Tutor came and seemed interested in helping, actually did research which indicated so. Then I had to cancel a lesson due to child having strep but advise will resume following week. Then received a call from Take Lesson stating she says 'not a good fit.' which is perfectly fine but she could have indicated that in an adult manner verses me getting a call Tuesday a day prior to lesson.
Disappointed but found more reliable and dedicated concerned turtor.

Chryssa has been an amazing teacher so far! She really knows how to teach a difficult language without overwhelming a beginner learner but while still moving at a pace that is comfortable and productive. Chryssa is patient and good at identifying what is difficult for you. I would recommend Chryssa to anyone wanting to learn Greek.

I teach through active conversation while still focusing on vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation. Each lesson is curated to focus on your personal intentions and goals, whether it be speaking, writing, listening, or even culture. We can form these lessons to be as vibrant and enjoyable in order to retain the most knowledge.

My students vary in age. I have experience working with children as young as 4 years old to adult seniors ranging in beginner to advanced lessons.

About Cynthia Coco
Good greetings!

I have 10+ years of experience in teaching, tutoring, and leading workshops. Currently, I am enjoying managing my own small business while teaching students part time.

I had the wonderful opportunity to work abroad, teaching English, Spanish, photography, and textile design. After a couple years of traveling throughout South America and Europe, I've decided to plop down in Asheville, NC, where I would love to continue teaching.

I am a clothing designer and botanical dyer by trade and also have experience in fine art, performance art, dance, and expressive arts therapy. These are also mediums I would be happy to share.

Learning should be a fun process, so I'm always excited work within each student's interest.

I've taken a few classes from Coco on product photography and lighting. I love how much of the topic we have covered in just these few sessions. Recurring lessons gives me a chance to complete assignments and review them with Coco. They're definitely affordable and informative.
