Let's have fun and enjoy English language conversation. We will explore idioms and nuances of American and British English -- slang, humor, formal, writing, and any use of English that is relevant for you.

About Kristin
Hello!

I received a Bachelor's in Music Education and Performance from Drake University in Flute and Piano. Currently pursuing a Master's in Music Therapy.

At Drake, I received a musical scholarship covering 80% of my tuition costs.
I was also honored to sit as Principal Flute in both the Drake Symphony Orchestra and the Drake Wind Symphony, the top performing groups at the University.

I started to play the flute and piano in second grade, and
my love and passion for music have only grown and matured since then.

I enjoy sharing what I've learned, and learning from my students as well.

I am excited and thrilled by the opportunity to work with you!

My first piano lesson turned out to be so much more than I could have ever expected. My teacher, Kristin is so engaged in the lesson and so very well prepared. We covered so much in such a short time. She made every minute both fun and informative while providing a very friendly environment in her studio. I feel very fortunate to have found such a really competent music teacher.

I have been teaching English for eight years. I am TEFL certified and a native English speaker. I tailor the curriculum to the student with their own goals in learning English. Each person has their own needs and learning style so I find this works best. I also have lived abroad in France and Switzerland. Je parle francais. Yo hablo espanol.

About Jackie
Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to check out my profile. Just a side note, I DO have a background check just not through the company TakeLessons wants me to use. I have taught elementary and middle school aged children through this website (as well as adults.) I have experience tutoring high school students in Spanish and French as an undergrad in college. I also taught English abroad while I studied in Geneva, Switzerland. I have taught English as a Second Language as a volunteer in the city. This past year I have taught French, Spanish, and English as a Second Language through TakeLessons.

I am TEFL certified and have a B.A. in Political Science - concentration in International Politics, minors in French and Theatre.

Here are some articles I have written featured here on the Take Lessons website -

*****Before you sign up*****

There are three simple things you need to know about my tutoring program.
1. No matter what your reasons for learning a foreign language are, ultimately it's a part of your SELF DEVELOPMENT. Treat it as such.
2. I don't believe in "good or bad with languages" stereotype. I have taught for many years and learnt that everyone is "language talented" when they actually want to speak a new language. And if you are one of them I garantie that my method will work for you.
3. My program might appear quite different from the ones you have tried or seen before and goes beyond simple grammar and vocabulary presentation. Also prepare to be challenged at every step of the way and the further you will get the more fun and exciting it will be.

3. My program might appear quite different from the ones you have tried or seen before and goes beyond simple grammar and vocabulary presentation. Also prepare to be challenged at every step of the way and the further you will get the more fun and exciting it will be.

*****My Students*****

For over 6 years of professional experien
ce as Russian/French/ESL teacher, I have worked with all types of students with different learning styles and various goals: taught within U.S. public education institutions, provided private classes for children and adults, developed and implemented individualized syllabus for diplomats, high rank executives at multinational companies, employees of U.S. Embassy and Department of State.

Thanks to all my students, current and former, I am now confident that every individual, willing to learn one of the languages I teach, without a doubt, has everything it takes to succeed when the right approach is applied during the learning process and that is when your classes are comprehensible, interesting and engaging.

*****Program features*****

It is one on one program, thouroughtly personalized and organized according to your interests (general and professional), schedule, final goals, learning style and many other important elements to be taken into account.

Each session is 50 minutes.

Every session is prepared to reach a particular goal and structured in the way to have a maximum profit from "teacher - student" part of learning. Supporting materials are sent after each session: grammar notes, retention exercises, homework assignments, audio and video files as phonetic exercises and listening practice. The content of these materials is permanently tested and modified in order to achieve the best way to engage each individual student's language acquisition mechanisms.

Teacher's support 24/7.

Extra curricula content: idiomatic language components, cultural studies (traditions, history, literature, cinema and language related etymology), recommendations for independent language practice.

The way I see it, with each new student - there is a new process in my head that starts and constantly creates and improves techniques, ideas, method components, teaching style e.t.c for getting this particular student to do the best he or she can.

*****Recommendations*****

More recommendations can be provided upon request.

I enjoyed my lesson and look forward to the next ones. Roman located were I was at in my Russian language by asking question. Then used that knowledge as the bases and went from there. Roman used shared video so I could see what notes he was typing then emailed those notes to me in addition to other resources. His explanations were simple, cut and dry. Challenging but not overwhelming!

I have over 5 years of teaching and tutoring experience. I specialize in input-based learning using English print and electronic media. I've published my own web-based English curriculum on my website.

I use SRS (spaced-repetition-software) to help students permanently memorize lots of new English on digital multimedia flashcards.

I help students overcome poor study habits that slow down learning. Every student should be able to learn to speak English like a native speaker in 1-3 years.

It's no secret, learning a new language is tough! I myself am a language student and understand the difficulties and hard work students must endure to learn a new language.

I spent three years living and traveling abroad. During this time, I began my career as an ESL instructor. Those three years provided me the foundation of experience as an ESL teacher that I continue to build upon today. I strive to provide students the knowledge and skills they need to meet their individual language goals. I use personalized lesson plans emphasizing an immersion into the English language and culture. My lessons will engage students not only by providing grammatical and vocabulary building exercises, but also by inducing conversational fluidity through fun and exciting speaking activities.

My classes begin with a presentation. This is the time when we work together to learn and understand a new topic in English. We may be learning about propositions of place such as "in at on." ...

About Ryan
Hello my name is Ryan. For the past several years I have been teaching English as a second language in Madrid, Spain. During my travels abroad, I learned and experienced different cultures and how to interact with people from varying backgrounds. Now that I've returned home, I am looking to continue providing private lessons to eager ESL students. I strive to provide students with fun and engaging classes that are specifically designed to meet their unique learning needs and goals. I can teach students of all levels as well as give courses for test preparation.
My lessons are designed in a three step manner. First, I present a new topic to you that we examine as a team and work through together. Next, we practice the topic through various activities designed to help reinforce what you have learned. Finally, you actually produce
the skill that we have learned during our lesson. We do this final step to solidify your learning and help move the information into your long term memory so you can use it in your daily life!

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Before our first lesson, I will send you a questionnaire that will ask you your goals and struggles with the English language.

In the first lesson, we will discuss your goals and struggles for learning English. I will then design lessons tailored to your English language needs. During each lesson, you will have my undivided attention. I will correct your mistakes and answer any English-related questions you may have.

I also enjoy teaching my students expressions, idioms, and slang that are commonly used in American English.

Outside of class, I may ask you to prepare for class by completing a relevant assignment.

You will also have access to a Facebook Page and/or Google+ Page where I post English-related articles and videos.

About Alli
