I teach English as a Second Language and English for Speakers of Other Languages. While teaching, I focus on pronunciation, vocabulary, spelling, reading, writing, sentence structure, subject-verb agreement, comprehension, etc. I have taught ESL/ESOL/TOEFL/TOEIC/IELTS to Saudi/Persian, Chinese/Taiwanese, Russian/Ukrainian/Latvian, Japanese, and Brazilian students, as well as others. I have helped six TOEFL candidates retake their test and score totals in listening, speaking, reading, writing as high as 96.

About Matthew
Dear Parents and Students,

May I be a personal tutor for you or your child? I have been successfully tutoring for over 12 years. I have great references, and I am one of the top tutors because I am so easy to work with. I teach in person, or via TakeLessons classroom, telephone, Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Join.me, Appear.in, Screenhero (remote desktop, screen sharing) interactive whiteboards, as well as email attachments (PDF, Word, Excel, etc.) I graduated with honors, Summa Cum Laude from Case Western Reserve University, where I made the Dean's List. I also earned a Provost Academic Scholarship for my excellent test scores, including 34 in ACT mathematics and 780 in SAT mathematics.

In addition to teaching for Cleveland schools, I currently teach 20 private sessions each week, 1st through 12th grade, as well as college stud
ents and business professionals. I have also served on the faculty at Cuyahoga Community College.

I am patient, friendly and many students tell me that I explain concepts more effectively than their teachers. I am available weekdays or weekends, days or nights, throughout the entire year. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have regarding my experience and teaching methods. While it should go without saying, I have a clean background that has been verified by the FBI and BCII. Let me know if you would like to set up an introductory lesson to design a customized strategy. There is no obligation to continue unless a customer is 100% satisfied.

I am one of the Top Five Tutors for:
1. most diverse subject matter
2. widest student age range
3. farthest geographical regions
4. largest client base
5. most hours taught monthly

Please note: I have set up my billing in thirty minute increments. Thus, I am able to offer lessons of varying lengths. However, I would appreciate longer sessions. I thank you for your time and consideration and look forward to being at your service!

My subjects include:
ACT, SAT, PSAT, NMSQT - undergraduate admissions
GMAT, GRE - graduate admissions
ISEE, HSPT, SSAT, TACHS, COOP - high school admissions

I have been teaching ESL students for 7 years. My goals are to give students the listening, writing and reading skills necessary to be successful in the English Language. I have taught in public education for the past 7 years, so I have the background knowledge in teaching to specific standards or learning targets of the public educational system. I am a native English speaker who has a graduate degree which gives me formal and informal knowledge of the English language.

I am also certified in Texas with a Generalist (EC-6) and and English Learner supplemental certification. I have been teaching in Houston for the past year and a half.

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.

We start first with easy phrases, getting to know a person, greetings. We then look at how to ask directions, and learn about ordering food in a restaurant. A large part of what I teach is through dialogue, and to supplement it I have discovered some great workbooks. We work in song, drawing and movement, even with older people, not just children. I can also assist with homework from a person's school, if they are a student.

About Kate
Hello students. I am a patient tutor and teacher, with a lot of creative ideas. I can tutor and teach you at your home or at the Rockville Public Library. Art lessons are always at your home. I had to have a background check to work as a teacher of drawing and painting classes and camps at the community arts center here called VisArts. I like to work in music, drawing and movement into language lessons to help with memory retention and to make it fun. I take a holistic approach. I have also been Youth director at a church fellowship and have testimonials. I have a bachelor's degree in Art Education, and I have taught French, Swiss and Russian kids English. I have taught art in a wide array of venues, since 1977.

Kate Lanxner, was a beloved member of our congregation and served as our UUG Youth Director from September 2013 (if my memory serves me well) until June 2016. We were so sad that she had to return back to the U.S and it was a huge loss to our group. The children ADORED her as did everyone on the UUG Steering Committee who appreciated her commitment, creativity, hard work and tremendous service to our community.

In addition to her official position as UUG Youth Director, Kate was instrumental behind the scenes with the adult programming and community building, contributing to the steering committee with valuable ideas, input, and efforts to promote us in the social media, bringing in important speakers and contacts, and always lending a tried and true hand. She single-handedly planned and presented a very much appreciated service in January 2016 entitled: "An Active Peace for 2016: Profile of James Twyman, Peace Troubadour (and other peacemakers)," including a well-received lecture, music, readings, and audience participation. She was a stalwart support and cheerleader for our group and she left a large gap in our community. But we take heart in what she embedded in our group -- a standard of excellence for our children's edification and enjoyment that we will try to replicate in the future. She trained an up-and-coming youth leader, an adolescent who blossomed under Kate’s tutelage. Kate brought into our fellowship a wonderful energy, love, creativity, connectivity, artfulness, and magic which should enrich the environment of any employer lucky enough to enlist her aid and services. She was entrusted with our children’s welfare, with access to buildings and equipment, and was the most reliable and delightful person imaginable. She worked sometimes under very uncertain conditions when we did not know who the participants would be and under frequently and unexpectedly changing conditions, and she was always an excellent problem solver and adapted to the prevalent situation with grace and joy. The entire UUG Steering Committee wholeheartedly endorses her for any work involving children and/or adult learning creativity, art and discovery.

I have been trained specifically in English language pedagogy. I received my M.A. Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) in 2016. I have taught learners at all levels from basic (Arabic and Chinese speakers who were still learning the roman alphabet) to advanced (graduate students who needed help following the conventions of academic English). Whatever your English language need is, I can help.

Hi y'all! I'm a licensed English/ESL teacher in Texas, and I have taught ESL/Language Arts all over the world (Hungary, Croatia, Italy, Mexico, and South Korea). I do not specialize in a special age group or skill level; I can help everyone from kindergarten to college, beginner to advanced. I made lessons engaging and fun, while using real-life practice examples. Through my 8 years of experience, I have helped hundreds of students strengthen their English skills, and I'd love to help you too.

About Genevieve
Being a licensed teacher in the State of Texas in both English/Language Arts, Reading, and ESL, I feel incredibly comfortable working with students of any age and skill level. I'm fully versed in state standards and expectations for students and I'm capable of helping you develop your skills!

Here's a bit about my teaching experience:
After graduating from Washington State University with a BA in English. I moved to Gyula, Hungary, where I taught ESL to 10-19 year olds at a local middle/high school. After two wonderful years there, I moved to Budapest, Hungary to teach American Culture/ESL at a prestigious technological high school, while I simultaneously earned my MA in International Relations and European Studies from Central European University. From there, I spent the next 4 years traveling the world teaching English to students o
f all ages. I particularly enjoyed working with kindergarteners in South Korea and Hospitality College students in Mexico.
