Ra is so great. She is patient and really knows her stuff. Definitely flexible in scheduling and she is so great with teaching my daughter.
Arianna L.
I elected to choose an online Spanish teacher for my daughter Arianna who is nine years old - after unsuccessful locating a local Spanish speaking class/teacher. Haven't had any experience with online teachers, I asked Take Lessons to recommend a Spanish native speaker from Puerto Rico. I needed to find someone who understands and is very familiar with the pronunciation of the Latin dialect. Ra's focus is conversational language; however, she was more than willing to take on the challenge of starting from the beginning with the basics, such as the alphabet, number, months, etc. and building into conversational sentences with Arianna. She is extremely easy to interact with, soft-spoken, and processes a genuine love of teaching. My daughter looks forward to their weekly meetings while embracing her Latin roots. We are immensely pleased with Ra. We would highly recommend her without reservation. Sincerely, The Lopez Family

Ra is great!

About Richard

I have been tutoring students for over twenty years. Before an actual lesson takes place, I find it important to talk to the student. Find out his concerns, what are his strong points and his weak ones. I want to know. what are his current ways of learning. The maxim: one size fits all is limiting

I teach English as a second language. With me you will learn how to sound like a native speakers and pick up great conversational skills and transitions.
One thing I love about teaching is bringing the arts into the process of learning. We may sing in the language and even paint to help learn. I've taught younger than Kindergarten all the way to adults, so feel comfortable that you'll grow in advanced conversational skills, as well as, beginner vocabulary. Let me highlight that I'm passionate about "phonetics," which is the study and classification of speech sounds. In other words, you are going to learn how to sound like a native speaker when you take my class.

Loren is an amazing teacher. She is patient, kind and caring. She listened to what I needed in preparation for going to Valencia Spain and then customized the lessons. I think we had a lot of fun together as I slowly began to catch on to the dialect of eastern Spain. BTW - she also knows French! I wish her the very best as she continues teaching others!

Over time with taking ESL lessons, you should be able to see improvement. ESL lessons with me will be fun but also will build on what you know, therefore it will be challenging as well! My goal in teaching ESL is improvement. I will always be aware of the place my student is at and not push them beyond their abilities. Improvement is the goal, but that takes time. Patience and fun will always be present in my ESL lessons!

"My daughter has been taking English lessons from Elisha for 6 months and I've already seen a huge improvement in her pronunciation, fluency, and confidence. My daughter is doing better in her schoolwork overall and actually looks forward to her English classes with Elisha, where she gets the individual attention and help that she doesn't get from her ESL classes at school.
Elisha tailors her lessons to the level and needs of her students and always incorporates a little fun into class. If you are considering ESL lessons for your child, I would highly recommend trying a class with Elisha."

For each of them Roman finds themes interesting to talk about and write about. Grammar and other boring stuff are taken needed care of, but main emphasis of lessons are on free talk."
