Whether it's for English as a second language or College level papers, English is nothing more than a few words with rules on how to put them together, then once you learn them, you can creatively arrange them together to even make beautiful works of literature. I will break down your problem areas and make sure you have a strong grasp on what needs improvement. I learn languages for fun, English being the second language I learned and became fluent in, so I can help non-natives more than most because I can relate to their mistakes and may even have learned their language. I also work as a Freelance Copywriter and I have two minors in creative writing and copy writing that I got when I was getting my BFA in Graphic Design, so if you want to write copy or write creatively I will be more than happy to help.

About Moataz
I am a Freelance Graphic Designer living in Stamford, Connecticut. I love learning and teaching, like a lot. I teach languages, Lettering, branding, and the basics of Graphic design as well as the adobe programs that bring it to life.

My promise to you is that I will teach you everything I know in the time I'm given and provide you with all sorts of outside resources to get you on your way to fluency and proficiency.

I'll make sure to do my absolute best to get you speaking a new language from day one, learning a Design program immediately, or teaching you how to letter with the rules they don't teach you in school. And best of all, I'll even show you how to actually make money with all of these.

I have a very unique journey into learning where I experienced many places and got a fresh and different understanding to the many su
bjects that I teach. For example my knowledge of multiple languages and travel to different countries gave me an added knowledge of linguistics that I experienced first hand and confirmed in books, so now I know how languages work, and can relate a concept from one language to another even if the languages seem completely different.

My Design work has been very general so I've done a lot of different things before I specialized in hand lettering, so I've done it all from advertisements on billboards to website design and development, to copywriting, to branding from start to finish for companies big and small.

My love for lettering and Calligraphy emerged when I started getting more Logos for client work and my exploration of type wasn't the best answer most of the time so I would letter everything myself, and the rest is history.

I am really passionate about learning and even more passionate about sharing what I've learned. I am efficient, I know what works for different people since I taught in classrooms and tutored way before I knew about Takelessons, and I'm most proud of being praised as a very genuine person. A very common compliment I get is that I sincerely want my students to do well. And it makes me really happy every time someone says it, and I hope that one day you see that and tell me the same thing.

Feel free to find out more about me and ask me anything you want, and I really look forward to one day teach you something that will get you to achieve your goals! :)

Just so there are no surprises, I raise my prices very slightly every 3 months, next time it will go up is on March 3rd 2017. The reason for this is because I get better and more efficient at teaching as time goes by, so that hour that you get now is much more packed with value than the same hour last year or last month.

Moataz immediately jumped into our lesson by asking me about my goals and from there to course content, which I loved. He tailored his lesson to my interests and offered so many amazing resources (beyond himself) to help me. I think I will continue to reap the benefits of this lesson for weeks to come. He seemed invested in helping me take real steps forward & didn't spend a single minute of class time pushing his products or future lessons. Not needed, because I will definitely be back.

I teach English to the Russian-speakers. I hold a degree in teaching English, and will help you to improve your grammar, listening and speaking skills and enlarge your vocabulary.

About Anna
Do you need the magic pill that will help you speak the language? The recipe is here. If you do the assignments I give you (no need to search for any extra materials), I can assure you that soon you will be able to speak and understand.

I am a highly qualified NYC-based Russian and English language teacher with a degree in linguistics/teaching and more than five years of experience. During the years of my teaching practice, I have developed several teaching methods, which I use in my classes. Together we will establish clear objectives for our lessons and will work on your grammar proficiency, listening and speaking skills, and accent neutrality.

I am a strict teacher :) Seriously. You have a goal and I am here to help you get there, whether it is to be able to negotiate with your business partners, speak to your family members or
read "War and Peace" in original. I will work hard to help you reach it, but I expect you to fulfill your part of a deal.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them here using the "Ask a question" button. If you have already decided that you need to speak Russian or English, do not postpone it for another day, month or year. Click the green button and let's do it.
I am looking forward to starting our language journey!

P.S. You can see me in action on my YouTube channel "Anna Cher: Russian from the Heart": https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3r_jGuhcb7D48Vh0pakNcA

*****
Some technical aspects:

- All materials are provided and included into the price of a lesson

- Recommended frequency of lessons: minimum of 2 times per week (duration of each lesson – 1-1.5h). Learning a language is like going to the gym: to get the muscles, you have to practice regularly.

- If you would like to have a class at a specific time and it is not available in my calendar, please send me a message. I may be able to change some things around and accommodate your request.

- I try to be flexible and modify my schedule based on your needs. But please be considerate and let me know 24 hours in advance if you need to reschedule or cancel a class.

Thank you!

About Joshua
I am a fun-loving, calm, and patient person, skilled in teaching students of all ages and communicating with them. I started playing music at the age of five when my mother signed me up for piano lessons. While in elementary school, I have participated in several NYSMA festivals and talent shows in the area.

In middle school, I attended Nathaniel Hawthorne MS74 where I learned to play the oboe, and received my ABRSM Grade 5 Piano and music theory qualifications. I participated in the Queensborough-wide senior band and performed as an oboist at Carnegie Hall on June 2010.

During high school, I attended the Bronx High School of Science and also received my ABRSM Grade 8 Piano qualification. I also volunteered at Queens Library's Bayside Branch, teaching reading, grammar, writing, mathematics, and basic chess to children.

In recent
years I have been attending the City College of CUNY and am currently pursuing my bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering. Also, I have started composing/arranging pieces on the Musescore platform.

---Lesson Details---
I am flexible, and able to cater to a student's goals and passions. For music and piano, students will learn music theory, technique, notation, sightreading, listening, and basic classical pieces. For academic studies, students will learn common core material, school curriculum/syllabus material or personal requests.

I am a native speaker of English, and I enjoy helping others perfect their listening, reading, speaking, and writing skills. Whether English is my student's first, second, or third language, I tailor my approach to help students of any age succeed.

About Christopher
I am a professional designer and researcher who has successfully taught students of all experience levels in a range of subjects including architecture, college-application essays, design software, English, and math. I graduated from Columbia, and I am passionate about helping others learn.

My strengths include working with students to visualize and achieve their goals, discovering areas for improvement, and, most importantly, getting results. My students have gone from zero knowledge in architecture and design software to full literacy. My students have increased English and math scores both in the classroom and on exams. Finally, with my coaching, students have written college application essays that earned them a place at prestigious institutions such as Columbia, Cornell, and Harvard, among others.

I live in the New York City
area and enjoy working with both in-person and online students.

English as Second Language, especially for native Russian- and Ukrainian-speakers.

About Anna
Russian could be fun - seriously. No more boring drills and tests - I'll make you look forward with excitement to your Russian lessons! I’ve been tutoring for more than 5 years and I can promise you a quick and painless learning process and a visible progress starting already with the first lessons.
Russian could be fun - seriously. No more boring drills and tests - I'll make you look forward with excitement to your Russian lessons! I’ve been tutoring for more than 5 years and I can promise you a quick and painless learning process and a visible progress starting already with the first lessons.

As I’ve come to realize, every student needs an individual approach, so I always tailor a study program depending on the student’s level of knowledge, learning preferences and objectives. I prefer a communicative approach as I understand that t
he primary goal of learning a foreign language is to actually use it in real life situations. At the same time, if you would like to focus on a specific language skill, e.g. writing or listening, I will structure our lessons to meet that goal.

I have experience of teaching all levels from the very beginner to the near-fluent and helping to improve specific skills, given on my students’ individual needs, such as pronunciation, grammar, conversational, writing, reading and listening skills, Russian for business travels, etc. I will provide you with a variety of study materials that you can use with me and on your own. I will also introduce you to the secrets and idiosyncrasies of the Russian culture, as the knowledge of the culture is a necessary ingredient in your mastery of the language. Plus, getting to know the notorious Russian culture is what could make the learning process really entertaining.

More about me: I am a world traveler and an aspiring polyglot. I got addicted to discovering other languages and cultures early on in life and was excited to move to the US from Ukraine 8 years ago (I am originally from the Russian-speaking part of the country, although I am fluent in Ukrainian). Languages turned out to be my long-term love affair and after having become fluent in English, I moved on to study German, French and Spanish. I’ve realized that tutoring my own language is an extremely rewarding activity as I am able to appreciate its beauty and intricacies and share this appreciation with others. I also realized that I learn from my students as much as they learn from me. Learning is indeed a two-way street. I appreciate my students and sincerely cheer for their progress. Best teachers are more than just instructors, they are mentors and friends and that’s what I try to become for my students.

I'm a fun teacher that uses fun methods in teaching the English language. I have a background knowledge of both American and UK English. I use fun and real life experiences and situations to make the lessons easy and interesting for the student. I create a student-friendly classroom environment to maximise the student's potential. Learning is quick and simple with me. Because I have a basic knowledge of Spanish, Spanish speaking students are also invited to apply for lessons.

About Victor
It is said that "the proof of the pudding is in the eating". I could say 100 things about myself, but your experience will be the proof. However, I'll say a few things. I am a people person with great patience. I evaluate my students to see what level they are at and use such knowledge to create a specific lesson plan and teaching approach to meet each student's need. I am respectful and culturally sensitive as that is important in teaching student's from different cultural background. Therefore, your boundaries will be greatly respected and classes will be professional but fun.
