Whether you need copy-editing of your professional document, better pronunciation, or simply to reduce your accent, and sound more 'American', I am well able to help you!

About Stephanie
I am a career musician, and conservatory trained violin, piano and vocal instructor with over 25 years teaching experience, and a resume spanning many pages. I also am a well endorsed composer. Furthermore, I LOVE teaching! I am a competition judge, member of National Music Teachers Association, and Suzuki Association of the Americas. I have proven results, as documented on my students YouTube channel. With my instruction, you will learn quickly and most importantly, correctly, saving you time and resources as you reach your musical goals. Fact: One of the only activities that activates, stimulates, and uses the entire brain is music, so let's get started!

Some people have difficulty reaching a teachers' studio. For this reason, I have perfected my ability to teach via Skype or FaceTime. It is an advantage for my students to b
e instructed by a quality teacher. It's worth a try, isn't it?

Please note: I only accept weekly lesson students. Also, due to my performances, I'm not always able to this calendar up to date....so when you request a lesson time, allow me to communicate with you, if we need to adjust it a bit. It almost always works out if you don't mind doing that.

*** Lesson Details ***
All the students on my Student YouTube channel who have studied under three years, are practicing 2 hours a week, and you will have a similar result. That's 20 minutes a day, 6 days a week. Students under 5 practice about 10-15 minutes a day.

Please have an assignment book that lies flat, and keep it next to your music books as you practice between lessons. My instructions are very detailed to insure your best progress.

*** Studio Equipment ***
For on-line lessons, you will need a quiet place, and please test your sound and video prior to beginning of lesson. For students under 13 or so, do have a parent or caregiver taking notes while we work together.

*** Specialties ***
I have much experience with various learning styles, and in fact, am featured in a documentary made of one of my autistic students.

I began taking on line Organ lessons with Stephanie in July of 2016. She is an excellent instructor. She makes you want to learn and do your best. She is very patient and explains things very well. She asks that you practice 20 minutes a day. Since she inspires you to improve and do your best, it is easy to practice longer than requested. She has brought joy back into my life through music. I am very grateful.

Nadia is the best tutor I have ever met with. Before I met with her I was struggling a lot and I was very nervous. After our first meeting I felt as if I had learned a lot and I was no longer confused. She is very helpful, patient, and very kind.

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.

I have a vast experience teaching English as a Second Language. I did it for almost 20 years in my home country, Portugal and am now teaching it in a college.. I have worked with different age groups, from 5 year-olds to adults. I understand the difficulties of learning a new language and I try to provide intensive practice in the four major skills in language learning: speaking, reading, listening and writing. I am very patient and enthusiastic.

About Helena
I am a native speaker of Portuguese and got my degree in English (ESL) and French Teaching in my home country, Portugal. I have been teaching foreign languages and ESL for more than 20 years and am comfortable working with all age groups. I taught 17 years in Portugal (ESL and French; 6-12 grades and Adult Education Programs) and ever since I moved to the US in 2010 (Portuguese and Spanish in a corporation, and tutoring all four languages at home or online). I am a very patient, motivated and enthusiastic teacher and I always adjust my teaching methods to the student's age, needs and purpose. I never give up on a student and I am sure I can help him/her attain his/her full potential. I believe anyone can learn a new language but consistent repetition and refreshing before, during and after class is needed. I expect the student to be resp
onsible, patient and persistent in his learning process and I am willing to help him/her on the way.

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!

Teaching ESL for several years now I've learned (as a teacher) that learning another language should not be boring but it does take time and daily practice. So, I like to focus on the student's specific needs and interests not to everyone! {:

About Alexandra
Greetings!, Hello!, Hi!, Hey!

I've been teaching English and ESL since 2000 and taught all ages from kids to adults. Two incredible experiences were teaching in Eritrea, E. Africa and Guatemala, C. America. Not only do I enjoy making grammar and conversation accessible to all students, but my goal is to help students to become fluent and obtain the skills to have both professional and social conversations.

Most importantly, I love teaching and helping students get on their own path of "the love of learning"!

I teach through active conversation while still focusing on vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation. Each lesson is curated to focus on your personal intentions and goals, whether it be speaking, writing, listening, or even culture. We can form these lessons to be as vibrant and enjoyable in order to retain the most knowledge.

My students vary in age. I have experience working with children as young as 4 years old to adult seniors ranging in beginner to advanced lessons.

About Cynthia Coco
Good greetings!

I have 10+ years of experience in teaching, tutoring, and leading workshops. Currently, I am enjoying managing my own small business while teaching students part time.

I had the wonderful opportunity to work abroad, teaching English, Spanish, photography, and textile design. After a couple years of traveling throughout South America and Europe, I've decided to plop down in Asheville, NC, where I would love to continue teaching.

I am a clothing designer and botanical dyer by trade and also have experience in fine art, performance art, dance, and expressive arts therapy. These are also mediums I would be happy to share.

Learning should be a fun process, so I'm always excited work within each student's interest.

I had a wonderful time learning with Adriana before my recent trip to Italy. It was my first time, and I thought it would be nice to know some useful phrases before I went. Not only is Adriana an excellent teacher of the Italian language (I was only able to just tap into her expertise given the little time I gave us before my trip), but she also has extensive knowledge of Italian culture. My time in Italy was so much more meaningful thanks to our lessons. I can't recommend her highly enough! Buon divertimento!
