I've taught ESL to many students, varying from people who could barely say "hello" to those who were just trying to get the past perfect continuous tense right. I love it.

About Michelle
Hi! I'm Michelle, a world traveler/teacher who's here to help bring her experience and energy to students back home in California. I've taught various subjects such as test prep, English, history, and languages to students all over the world, such as China, France, and Ecuador. I've worked with students of all ages and love getting to know them to help figure out how they best learn.

I love learning languages in my spare time and practicing when I can. When I'm not looking a bit silly doing that, I'm usually reading, at a baseball game, hiking, or hanging out with friends. I keep active, making sure to run or climb a mountain when I can. However, it's equally as strong as my love for foods of all kinds.

I really look forward to getting to work with you and helping you with whatever I can!

(This course is for people whose native language is not English.)

I have many years experience teaching English to students at all levels from beginners to fluent speakers. I am a native English speaker.

My lessons are all 1 to 1 so we can work on your individual English language learning goals. We can focus on conversation, listening skills, speaking, grammar, vocabulary building, writing, or whatever you need.

Some of my students are beginnings who need to learn the basics. Others are intermediates who are trying to gain proficiency. Many are advanced students who are already using English at work, and need to sound more natural and more like a native speaker.

For advanced students, I am happy to help you with resumes, cover letters, and job applications, as well as with interviewing practice.

With my less advanced students, we can work on every day situations, and practicing using correct grammar and pronunciation.

About Marion
Hi, I'm Marion. I teach ESL - English-as-a-Second language to adults. Lessons are 1 to 1, so we can work on speaking, listening, reading, writing, or whatever you need. I also work with native-English speakers and English language learners on improving their writing. Whatever your skill set, age, abilities, or background, I can help make you a better writer.

My ESL students come from many different backgrounds. Some are beginners, but most are working professionals who need to perfect their English to compete in the workplace.

My writing students are either native-speakers or English language learners who need improve their skills for school, work, or personal reasons. I can help with graduate school personal statements, job-seeking cover letters, proposal writing, and many other areas.

I love working with adults and younger peop
le on developing storytelling techniques, and public speaking skills for presentations and interviews, as well as for personal events. These are great confidence builders with real world results!

Whether you are a native speaker or an English-language learner, it would be my honor and privilege to work with you.

I am an experienced classroom teacher and tutor who has taught classrooms of English language learners. Together, we will make sure you succeed and meet your goals. English will become more clear, you will be able to express yourself better, and you will be proud of your accomplishments. Lessons are individualized--made special and helpful just for you.

About Melissa
I am an experienced classroom teacher, tutor, caregiver, and leader. I have minors in Music and Spanish, a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, and a Master's degree in Educational Leadership. I have also been in competitive public speaking for several years.

With a solid understanding of education from different perspectives -leadership, students, parents, teachers, and more - I know what it takes to help students achieve at their full potential. I ensure lessons and material are unique to the student, engaging and enjoyable, relevant, and catalysts for growth and success. Test preparation is also a skill I help students excel in. In fact, some of the schools I have been partnered with have even been featured on television.

As a competitive public speaker, I have won awards at the local, state, and national levels. I have also fo
unded, coached, and judged teams and speakers.

As a musician, I have played and/or competed in solos, duets, quartets, concerts and more. I have studied music theory, written my own music, won scholarships, and taught others.

My students vary in ability from autistic and nonverbal, to English language learners, to gifted and talented. I have taught students in rural, suburban, and urban environments in charter, public, and private schools. My students are from a variety of different cultures, religions, and backgrounds. The similarity they share is being proud of their achievements after working together!

My students typically tell me that I am one of their favorite teachers. I believe every student is capable of achievement, and it is my mission to help them get there. I see students greater than they see themselves, and in sharing this, they end up feeling more confident and empowered themselves. My lessons are fun, relevant, effective, and individualized. I can't wait to partner up with you! Let's make your goals happen!

About Isabela M.

Fort George G Meade, MD

View Full Profile

I am a Certified Interpreter in five languages with the US Defense Language Institute Monterrey, California.

English is my third language but I didn’t stop here. I taught my mother and so many others tips on how to learn this language faster.

If you speak a Romantic language, even better; I’ll find “anchors” to help you connect the dots and allow you to find English words faster.
If your native language is not among the Romantic ones, don’t despair (though my assumption is that you stopped reading by now). Mentors are critical, and I’ll teach you ways to find balance, consistency, and discipline in learning English as a Second Language.

About Isabela
Before reading about me, I'd like to share up front the honor that my newest student, R., has brought to me by choosing to learn Romanian. Nothing special so far except that he is 100 years old!!!! Yes, you read that correctly: a century old. He is the outmost inspiring person in my life by teaching me that age is just a number and that learning can happen any day if we choose so. R is a medical doctor, a psychologist, a chemist and biologist. Words can't even define how great of a man he is.

I'm an enthusiastic learner even after 19 years of formal education (two Masters, one Bachelor) earned on two continents continued by US military education in various forms, and formally tested student who needed to document skills that were not formally captured on paper (like the foreign languages I know).

I love interacting with people and
pass on my knowledge from five visited continents, instill love for learning and continuous curiosity for any subject out there. Nothing is impossible when you set your mind to it. Failing once doesn't mean that you'll never win (proof in my athletic years and life ever since); determination, hard work, self-motivation and a good supporting system can bring to reality even the most insignificant dreams that we believe may not come true, and especially those in which we passionately trust.

I believe in breaking down a goal into objectives, assigning tasks to each one of them, and then sticking to achieve them.

I'm a Certified Instructor with the Department of Homeland Security. My hobbies include practicing foreign languages (and proper grammar rules which highly reflect on one's education) by speaking them, learning about cultures and slangs, etymology, watching foreign movies, traveling internationally, taking photos, reading (a lot), carefully planning with room for error and impulsive decisions (to take the boredom out of things), meeting with life long friends, drawing, painting, and spending time outdoors for inspiration and health.

I'm elated at the opportunity of brainstorming with you and giving you tools to be an independent learner.

About Paul P.

Want to master American English for business, for school or for life? Well, I've got the secret code. Here's the deal. For over 15 years, I've been turning English learners from all over the world to confident English speakers. Professionals, students, and entrepreneurs. I use a fun and effective contextual approach. This means you acquire the language naturally, as we discuss a topic relevant to your interests and needs. I'll also help you to understand American culture and to master the natural speaking patterns used by North Americans. So if that sounds cool, check me out here on TakeLessons.

About Paul
I’m a TESOL Certified English Communication Coach and educational Content Creator. I come from an Argentine family, and grew up in Miami Beach, so I'm fully bilingual. I have a degree in audiovisual media and communication, and earlier in my career, I worked as a television writer and producer. In my free time, I enjoy running, music and journeying into fascinating worlds via stories.

But stories are much more than something I enjoy in my free time. I believe stories are the most powerful form of communication. So powerful they can transform any message, vision or experience into something meaningful and memorable. TED Talks are a perfect example of this. Imagine if most business communication had this power, this energy.

That is why I created an approach to English Mastery called Storylingo. It’s a story-based approach to English commu
nication that has allowed me to help hundreds of professionals and job candidates from all over the world achieve their business communication goals in English.

The result is speakers of English as a foreign language that can communicate their ideas in a way that is clear and engaging. Storylingo is available as a workshop, as personalized coaching and soon, as an online course. I’ve used this system of training at leading organizations including Santander Group, Siemens, and Alibaba.

Having a masters in German ESL and French gives me the opportunity to approach languages from a variety of cultures.
I love to use semantic as one way to teach vocabulary and base my instruction on functional grammar with focus on each learner type, age and goals.

About Barbara
Hallo,Hello,Bonjour

I was born and raised in Germany and have a masters in German ESL and French. I had the opportunity to study in Paris, France and also worked as an assistant teacher in Oxford. After my studies in Germany I worked as an international exchange teacher for VIF, an American company, in Charlotte, NC and then went back to Germany where I received my lifetime position. I then returned to the US, Houston, TX with another teacher exchange program from Germany where I taught for three years and then returned to Germany again where I taught as the head of the French language department. After three years I went back to Houston, TX and worked at a German, British and French private school and then continued to work independently for my own business BU LLC Language and Learning Center. I work with corporate clients to prepare
them with language and cultural training when they start working in Germany, Austria or Switzerland. I also work with a lot of expads of all ages who either do not want to loose their mother tongue or want their children to learn it as part of their heritage. Moreover I teach online for the Air Force and with expads who went back home or to their destination country for work abroad. I love the fact that I meet and work with a huge and interesting variety of people of all ages from all over the world. I am a strong believer in intrinsic learning and I customize each lesson to the needs and goals of every student. I am very much looking forward to working on this platform.

“Ohh la la la”, that’s the sound when you comfortable reading along. “Ohh la la la”, you’ll be learning English by singing songs. “Ohh la la la la lalalalala”, come and join along and let me show you how it’s done, yeah.

Learning any new language can sometimes be very frustrating, especially when there are so many rules and conducts of speech one must remember to follow.

Within this ESL lesson, we will be taking the bore out of chore. Book a lesson today and get ready to find your groove as we create and remake lyrics to popular melodies all while learning the basic elementals of the English language. These lessons are perfect for beginners!

About Cierra
Greetings Earthlings, class is in session. Ok time for our first POP QUIZ! See your questions below. (There is a right or wrong answer, but only you will know if it’s correct or not.)

Question 1.: Who are you?

Question 2.: Who or what did you want to be prior to any doubt of becoming that was brought to your awareness?

Question 3.: Does it bother you to have fun while learning? (This is not a trick question.)

Well, there you go. So, how did you do? Remember, only you can really answer these specific questions. When it comes to exploring self, which most of my lessons extends from, understanding and being honest with whom, what and where you are is the first step in opening yourself up to learning and evolving.

Learning should be fun an exciting. There’s also a sense of freedom that should come along with the power of obtaining new me
ntal tools for life. Your life.

Although English idioms don't make sense at first, these unique expressions (together with proverbs) add substance and humor to our conversations. The Oxford Dictionary defines the word "idiom" as a: "group of words established by usage as having a meaning not deducible from those of the individual words (e.g. over the moon, see the light)."
