Tom works at the elementary, secondary and post-secondary levels as an adult education instructor providing English instruction to classes or individual students.

As an ESL teacher, developing a curriculum he takes an overall approach to English study that focuses on a specific aspect of language use, such as life skills, literacy, or vocational and workplace English competencies. Both approaches involve teaching his students basic English skills, such as listening, reading, writing and speaking.

- Quizzes, textbooks, videos and computer lessons
- Basic communication with real-life interactions

Using language use in different situations, such as shopping, schooling, job hunting or working with English-speaking co workers.

The Pedagogical Foundations Of EnglishCentral

By David Deubelbeiss

EnglishCentral is a company that takes pride in having experienced teachers on staff and designing a product that will help students learn and acquire English, particularly for international communication.

Too often technology is designed without the control or voice of educators. Technology for technology's sake. We have tried to avoid this error and build an e-learning platform that puts pedagogy and learning first.

Here are the key aspects of English Central's pedagogy:

1. Motivation.

We live in a visual and digital world. Students consume enormous amounts of video content and video has become the new textbook. EnglishCentral harnesses this built in, intrinsic level of motivation - why not learn English while viewing videos you love? EnglishCentral publishes 30 new video lessons per week and its vast library of video lessons and courses offers every student the chance to study what they want and listen to messages they want to hear.

2. Comprehensible Input

Not only do students need to listen to messages they want to hear - these messages must be level appropriate (Krashen, 2001). Each EnglishCentral video lesson or course plus our vocabulary is leveled and can be assigned to students based on their level of English. This provides appropriate practice maximizing language acquisition.

3. Precise, Timely Feedback

EnglishCentral provides instant feedback to students. Students begin to "notice the gap" (Schmidt, 1990) and begin to self-correct as they compare their speech to the original. Tools are provided so students can "dig down" and understand the language and get the answers they need immediately. EnglishCentral works to promote learner autonomy.

4. Lowered Affective Filter

Many students go through a substantial "silent period" (Krashen, 1985). Others need the time and space given through self-study before they are ready to excel in the very socially demanding classroom. EnglishCentral provides a safe, low anxiety environment where learners can proceed at their own pace and practice speaking in a non-threatening place. Teachers are often amazed how the quiet students in their class "bloom" on EnglishCentral.

5. An Oral Language Focus

The 21st century workplace and global nature of communication demands that students have strong speaking skills. The importance of written communication is receding. EnglishCentral's proprietary speech recognition system IntelliSpeech™ trains students to produce, clear, intelligible speech for effective communication across cultures and borders.

6. Blended Learning

The future of education lies in blended learning (Arne Duncan, 2014). EnglishCentral partners with schools and teachers offering a unique blended learning model and platform. Courses and video lessons can perfectly compliment what students learn in class, providing students with extra practice matching the class curriculum. Our free LMS lets teachers extend the curriculum and track student achievement.

7. Structured Learning

Our simple Watch | Learn | Speak methodology provides low cognitive overload and an easy to follow learning pathway. Courses and video lessons are leveled and vocabulary is presented with spaced-time repetition. EnglishCentral monitors every word or expression students study and provides a simple interface where students can use the feedback to improve their pronunciation and build their vocabulary.

8. Gaming

Students are highly engaged by the gaming dynamics of EnglishCentral. Students compete for XPs (Experience Points) and ranking through their study. However, we don't go overboard and aim to keep the focus on the learning, not the gaming.

9. Ambiguity Tolerance

Language is a vast and unpredictable space. Successful language learners are risk takers. Critical to being a risk taker is having a strong ability to not be stressed out by what you don't understand (Brown, 2007). EnglishCentral provides authentic content that challenges students to focus on the general meaning and gist and strengthen their level of ambiguity tolerance.

David Deubelbeiss is a professor, educational consultant and teacher trainer currently at the Schulich School of Education, Nipissing University, North Bay, Canada. He is a leader in promoting the use of technology in language teaching and the use of social media in education. He is the Director of Education at EnglishCentral. Find him online at his professional development community for teachers, EFL Classroom 2.0 or through his LinkedIn profile. He espouses the simple teaching philosophy of “When one teaches, two learn.”

About William
Hey there. My name is William H. I have been studying martial arts for about 14 years. Most importantly I do not represent any school, style, or person. I'm an instructor, catalyst, and advocate. I do not claim to be a master. Whether you are experienced or not I can without a doubt augment your abilities. I have taught for about nine years. I teach components of various styles. Krav Maga, Muay Thai, Wing Chun, Jujutsu, Western Boxing, and more. I started at Miller's Martial Arts Academy in Kirkland, WA and from a former Israeli Defense Force solider. Additionally, Doug Carducci and other teachers from Sasori Academy MMA. Eastside Martial Arts. Chris Hartman and Armando Diaz; both Muay Thai ring fighters. My father, a practitioner of 40 years of Kyokushinkai Karate and other practices. Tyler king, an independent teacher. James Saeger, for
mer teacher at Z-Ultimate Self Defense Studios. I have also trained at many different schools all around the Northwest.

-Basic footwork, stance, movement, and falling. Blocks, evasions, and interceptions. Counters, throws, and groundwork.

-Option to choose areas of focus, regiment, and class structure to suit your goals/interests.

****Offering classes from 30-240 minutes****

Whether you are looking for exercise or self defense training I could cover either and more. Generally effective long lasting self defense capabilities are synonymous with intense exercise and effort. Peace and safety are very important to me. Drills are good and we do them but real fights are usually random and chaotic. I offer training to be better prepared for those scenarios.

Having never done martial arts before I was amazed at how well William explained everything to me in a way I could easily understand. He is well-versed in a variety of forms of martial arts and can individualize the lessons in regards to speed, complexity, and content. This flexibility was really great because I could tell him what I wanted to focus on and he could tailor the lessons to that. For me it is really important to know the how, why, and real-life implications of everything and he can explain all that to me or direct me to pertinent resources that can. William is very passionate about martial arts and is genuinely interested in helping others to develop those skills and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

William has a great attitude and an immense knowledge of martial arts. He is extremely skilled, compassionate, and has a no-ego, non-judgmental approach to his teaching. I recommend this instructor for students both new and experienced. I guarentee he has something to bring to the table to grow you as a person and a martial artist no matter what your background may be.

About Reina
******NOTE: Online singing lessons are awesome. You will have the opportunity to learn in a comfortable environment, on your schedule, without travel time to and from your lesson!!!

Lessons available Sunday - Thursday.

Register today to reserve your spot for the school year. Also, be sure to check out all the classes I teach through the TakeLessons Live classroom*****

Hi, I'm Reina and I'm obsessed with the voice instrument! I have over 20 years of music experience, as a vocalist and performer. I've been teaching voice lessons since 2005.

Below is a list of FAQ's - if you have further questions beyond what is listed feel free to contact me through the Ask a Question feature on my profile.

Where can I take voice lessons?
Currently lessons are available online.

What will I learn in my lessons?
You will learn how to care
for, and properly play your instrument. We will start with basic exercises and drills, and move into more advanced techniques as you progress in your skill sets.

What if I'm a beginner?
Totally fine! I teach all levels beginning through professional. The voice is an instrument just like any other instrument and must be learned in the same manner, from the beginning!

Can I try the first class Free?
No, but you will get a FREE lesson on your birthday and for each friend you refer that purchases a 5-pack of lessons.

What is your teaching style?
I am more than your voice teacher. I am your coach, your friend, your, mentor and peer. You are your voice, and in order for me to properly teach, you have to trust me. We will build a rapport as you grow your instrument in confidence, strength and flexibility.

Are there added bonuses to taking singing lessons?!
Yes! Proper breathing is a guaranteed ab workout, singing can improve your speaking voice, and you'll have a better sense of self understanding by learning how to better control your instrument. Not to mention all the unplanned karaoke you can take part in!

A little more about the teacher:
I've been a singer since as long as I can remember. I never wanted anything else. I started as a beginner by imitating my favorite artists. I performed a lot as a child, and stopped performing for a while in my teen years due to stage fright and the such. During that time I started songwriting and recording, I studied music in college, graduated and started performing again as a solo artist. I joined a few bands, they all broke up. I licked my wounds and now I'm a happy, recording, performing, songwriting, teaching, voice-over, and producing vocalist.

I loved each lesson. Mrs.Reina replys back to her students in a timely matter. Mrs. Reina is an understanding teacher.(when I didn't have a sitter, I was able to bring my 4month old)
If there is a reason you can't make class make sure you still contact her. She is so understanding on life situations. (My house caught fire.)
I would recommend Mrs. Reina to all ages. (I am 27)
This school is real. Mrs.Reina is real and your homework is real.

Lian is a great teacher. She has given me nutrition guidelines to follow. I'm impressed with her knowledge on the subject of nutrition. The classes have given me insight on what are the best foods to eat and the foods that would increase my weight. She makes each session a relaxed atmosphere to learn. If I make a mistake on my previous week for eating, she doesn't come down on me hard. These classes have given me goals to curve my intake of bad foods like ice cream or cookies.

Hello! I am available for in-home, in-studio, and online flexibility lessons and I would absolutely love to help you reach your goals! I began my own flexibility journey in 2013 when I started circus arts and wanted to look more like the professionals with beautiful splits and backbends!
I have learned several tips, tricks and methods that, as shown in the before and after pictures of my profile, will greatly improve your flexibility.

I specialize teaching different exercises to improve your forward folds, front splits, middle splits, and backbends.

My ages taught and availability are flexible (pun intended) depending on your situation. Since I am not a medical professional, and every body is different, I do require a student to have a significant amount of body awareness or previous flexibility training experience. Please feel fr
ee to reach out via the Ask a Question feature on my profile if you have any hesitations so that we can discuss your specific needs!

I look forward to working with you!

About Ashlee
I'm a performer, choreographer, journalist, and certified yoga instructor. I hold a BFA in Dance and a Minor in Journalism from California State University, Long Beach where I graduated Cum Laude. In addition, I am a 200-RYT with Yoga Alliance after receiving my training through Long Beach School of Yoga under the direction of Ram Bhakt.

With dance, I have received training from professional artists Bernadette Alverio, Rebecca Lemme, Gracie Whyte, Laurel Jenkins, Keith Johnson, Lorin Johnson, Sophie Monat, John Pennington, Lisa Johnson, Alicia Head, and Rebecca Bryant.

Currently, I am a company member of Authentic: Grooves, and was formerly a company member of SURGE Dance Company. During my time at CSULB, I have performed in faculty works by Lorin Johnson, Rebecca Lemme, Rebecca Bryant, and student works by Jasmine Mosher and Tayl
or Worden.

I have attended the River North Dance Chicago 2016 Summer Intensive and BODYTRAFFIC's 2017 Concurrent Winter Workshop where I trained by and alongside company members under the workshop direction of Sara Bibik (RNDC) and Tina Finkelman-Berkett (BT). In 2016, I had the privilege of performing Rebecca Bryant’s ASKQUESTIONSLATER at the John F. Kennedy Center of Performing Arts for the American College Dance Association’s National Gala in Washington D.C.

For yoga, I teach a wide-range of yoga styles, with an emphasis on healing, somatic techniques, and Integral yoga principles. I have been practicing yoga for several years and teaching since 2017. Most of my classes consist of Gentle Flow practices to focus on finding space and stillness, providing the body an opportunity to unwind, heal, and restore. However, I am trained to teach Vinyasa Flow, Integral Yoga, Yin Yoga, and Iyengar Yoga. Currently I teach for Free Yoga on the Beach in Long Beach, CA.

My mission is to inspire students to find the stillness and breath in life, starting on the mat. Through a balance of flow and somatic technique, my classes will take you deeper in your practice. As a dancer and athlete, I understand the demands the body goes through daily, and firmly believe that yoga should reflect the opposite of your lifestyle. Implementing tactile adjustments and healing intentions, my classes will help you unwind, restore, and open up. I believe that through the steady practice of yoga, we can restore ourselves and bring zen to our lives in an already hectic world.

I have experience writing for the performance arts—specifically dance—entertainment stories, and media design. During my education, I was published in CSULB's Daily 49er university newspaper several times for the CSULB Department of Dance concerts. I actively write for the dance blog Spot LA run by Monica Reid where I report on the thriving LA dance scene.

I aspire to continue working in a performance company, write about dance, teach dance and yoga, travel, and continue my education to attain a M.F.A. in Dance.
