I teach ESL to beginner - advanced students.

About Julissa
I am a freelance tutor and translator. I have been tutoring for more than 8 years. I am very friendly, patient and professional. I tutor college students and children. I got my Associate in Arts and Sciences - Psychology from Union County College in NJ. On my sessions I apply constructivist teaching techniques which have proven excellent results. I am an avid observer of details which helps me determine the student's strengths. My classes are fun as playing a game! I am also a Therapeutic Mentor in Catholic Charities. In order to be accepted I had to get a full background check because I deal with very special and unique children.

I have 5-7 years experience teaching English at public and private educational settings, including college, university, and library. My specialization is in American English accent reduction for non-native speakers. I use multi-media teaching strategies.

About Erol
***AREAS NORTH OF CENTRAL SANTA CLARITA ARE DIFFICULT TO SERVICE PHYSICALLY/ ADDRESSES WITHIN REMOTE AREAS (no public transit or bicycle access) DIFFICULT TO SERVICE PHYSICALLY***

***lesson cancelations and schedule changes need to be submitted through your Takelessons.com student website. It is difficult for teacher to handle multiple informal requests***

My style and attitude toward teaching is a balance between subject delivery and reflective, supportive interaction. I seek to enable current research on education for busy, yet goal-driven student interests. This is done through customized online lessons coordinating the experience with optimal resources and tools. Examples are helping ESL students to monitor their own phonic issues with dedicated software/feedback, guiding German students through conversational dialogues, and ta
iloring Excel and related productivity lessons for particular prerequisites.

Due to my limited funds, I do not have direct experience with the Adobe suite, but I have extensive knowledge of related, free distributions that are transferable. I also have formal education in the field of English, innovative leadership, and Education. My current level is PhD candidate (currently passed defense, so pretty much done) for the terminal degree in Education. I am member of the Association for Language Learning, located in Leicester, UK.
My most popular subjects are as follows:

North American English Pronunciation Practice for ESL (NAEPP-ESL) or Accent-Reduction:
*****Each Online Lesson with Free Video & MP3 recordings, and about 50 GB onedrive folder for lesson files*****

Carefully following Burkkowsky's (1969) multi-media method, I have taught this subject for over five years for public and private causes, such as library, individuals, and language schools. My emphasis for pronunciation is a scientific, comprehensive overview and treatment of the various sounds, rhythms, inflections, and patterns the spoken language integrates. I encourage practicing and mastering both the sounds themselves, as well as how the sounds are connected and contextualized. I use contemporary sound recording and .wav editing software (acoustic waveform analysis) to enable dynamic feedback and self-monitoring .

Morton, H., Gunson, N., Jack, M. (2012). Interactive Language Learning through Speech-Enabled Virtual Scenarios. Advances in Human Computer Interaction. doi:10.1155/2012/389523.

German Language and Culture:
*****Each Online Lesson with Free Video & MP3 Recordings and about 50 GB onedrive folder for lesson files*****

I have grown up bilingual English and German, attending an international school from a very young age. I attended, also, a German public secondary school, where I earned a diploma, and I completed college-level German credits. I taught German in the language lab of a community college, for special needs students, and for private agencies, such as Tutor Doctor. My emphasis is on a comparative introduction of the language to draw out a common ground and familiarize possibly daunting differences. I also enjoy asserting that German is often underestimated as a rewarding second language to study.

Microsoft Excel:
***It is recommended students own or have regular access to a personal computer after 2002 in order to get the best benefit***

This spreadsheet and data management software program is of crucial, pivotal importance in any business and financial environment. The program enables efficient and prompt development of arithmetic and statistical calculations of vast data sets. It also helps to visualize and juxtapose related or even discrepant variables. My approach to teaching the program is cumulative and holistic, starting with an introduction to personal inventory management to the processing of large data sets using pivot tables, charts, and dashboards. My emphasis is on making the program as intelligible and transparent as possible to avoid frustration and intimidation. I use a lot of examples and visuals that are readily available.

Typing:
***It is recommended students own or have regular access to a personal computer after 2002 in order to get the best benefit***

I teach the touch-typing method that is the convention for most journalistic and input-intensive organizational settings. I teach the home row, proper finger and hand positions, proficiency with left and right hands, as well as posture and concentration methods. I enrich the teaching with resources from the web, such as speed-building and error reduction.

Are you looking to learn English? I'm a native English speaker with a degree in Elementary Education and I have an ESL endorsement. Teaching is my passion, I love what I do and want my students to love learning, as well. I have worked with children and adults teaching them how to read and speak English. I teach based upon the individual’s wants and needs. I implement different activities (singing, games, crafts), talk about various topics, and adjust my lessons to help you to be successful with speaking English. I teach grammar, phonics, conversational, and academic English. I currently teach English, through VIPKID, to children from ages 4 up to 12 on a daily basis. I have extensive practice teaching students with no English skills to needing assistance with daily conversations. I am very flexible and will work with your schedule. We can have one lesson a month or several lessons a week, it is up to you.

About Jessica
Hello! I am so excited that you stopped by. I am an enthusiastic teacher that loves to encourage my students. I will develop a lesson plan to help meet your, or your child's, individual needs. We will learn the conversation, practice, and even games. I have lots of experience working with children and adults. I have been teaching for over ten years both English and the flute. I have taught both seventh and fourth grade- traditional and Montessori methods. I have experience teaching students with special needs and have different techniques to help students with their individual needs. At the end of each lesson, you will be provided with a detailed list of what we worked on and what should be worked on for our next lesson. I utilize google docs to help keep track of notes from our lessons. I hope to hear from you soon!

As an ESL student myself, I understand the struggles that English language can provide. That is why I try to help all of my ESL friends to improve their english, as I was once helped. I love languages because learning and mustering a new languages opens a new world of possibilities and broadens one's horizons.

About Artem
Hello! My name is Artem and I'm 24 years old. I'm a freelance musician, composer and pedagogue.
I am passionate about teaching because I believe education and willingness to learn is an extremely important factor for personal development and success.
I was born and raised in Saint Petersburg, Russia and underwent intensive training in voice, violin, composition and piano. After winning the Frieburg Intenational Violin Competition in 2010, I was offered a full scholarship to study music at Dalhousie University at the age of sixteen. After moving to Canada I went through a 9-month intensive english learning program, so I know first hand how difficult it can be to learn a new language. This experience helped me understand the struggles that any ESL student goes through and discover new ways to teach my first language to others.
I am exci
ted to get to know you and share my knowledge with you!

Nothing beats learning from a native speaker, especially one as knowledgeable and professional as Artem. Russian is his native language, but you would never have guessed it since his English is impeccable. He takes difficult concepts and makes them simple to understand. He walks with you each step of the way, meeting you at your level and guiding you to fluency. He understands the best way you learn and adapts to your learning needs and situation. Artem will help you attain native pronunciation and will go out of his way to provide extra help and materials. I've been amazed how much I have gained from lessons with him. Highly recommended. Wonderful teacher.

I have a teaching experience of ESL of more than 24 years in Cuba. I have taught in colleges, for students with different academic interests, and for graduates who wanted to improve their proficiency in this language. I have also trained teachers of ESL at the language school where I worked.

In my teaching I use a communicative approach with meaningful exchanges but with a solid foundation of the formal aspects of the language too, so that students can move forward safely. I pay attention to individual differences so that each student can progress at his/her own pace with ease.

At intermediate and advanced levels I always favor the use of meaningful discussions and debate about updated issues, so that students learn how to express their opinions and ideas properly in different contexts.

I believe in creating a friendly atmosphere with meaningful human exchanges throughout my lessons.

About Carlos
I have been a language teacher for more than 24 years. I have a B.A. in English Language and Literature and my curriculum includes several subjects related to Spanish grammar, composition, phonetics and literature, so apart from being my native language (I am Cuban) I have the necessary academic knowledge to teach Spanish to speakers of other languages.

I have worked mainly with adults in colleges and language schools. At the university level I worked with students from different professional interests, so I am familiar with teaching the language for specific academic skills. I have also tutored individual adults.

In my teaching I favor the communicative approach with meaningful exchanges and with a solid foundation on the formal aspects of the language too. I also pay attention to individual needs so that students can progress at th
eir own pace.

At the intermediate and advanced levels I favor the use of meaningful discussions and debate about updated issues, so that the students can learn how to express their true opinions and ideas properly in different contexts.

I believe in fostering a friendly atmosphere and making the teaching experience a meaningful human exchange.

As a former PBS Radio Announcer; Diction coach for Hollywood films; Actor; and Doctoral degree-holding College Professor, my understanding of English grammar, diction, dialects, and colloquial forms of the English language is unique in the ESL market. I taught for over 10 years as an ESL instructor while in college, and have continued to use my abilities in my profession over the last quarter-century.

About Dr. John
Can you really learn to sing, or speak English like a native, online? Yes, when you have a superior teacher. Online teaching is so much easier, safer, and sensible today, and I can help you become a better speaker of English, or prepare for that Audition for Grad school, or Broadway, with my 25-plus years of teaching experience and success in the real world- my students were movie stars in Mexico, singers on Broadway & in national tours, and performed in numerous community theaters, choirs, and opera companies in the USA. I know how to help you succeed!
