If you are learning English and are looking for a conversational partner to practice and become more comfortable, I am your person! I taught English in Spain for 2 years at several Bilingual institutes.

About Ra

Hola! My name is Ra. I am a dancer, poet, and educator. I specialize in teaching conversational Spanish and Dance (Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Flamenco). I am a native Spanish speaker. Originally from Puerto Rico, I grew up between PR and New York City. I graduated from The New School University

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!

A very good first lesson. We went over breathing exercises and scales. Also had time for Amy to critique my speaking style through a portion of a speech I will be giving in a month. Time well-spent.

She briefly went over the next lesson plan and gave me a little homework to do as well.

I got a lot out of this lesson and I can see how this will help me accomplish my goal of being a better public speaker and having a more controlled and stronger voice.

Looking forward to future lessons.

Amy is absolutely incredible. She showed keen interest in my concerns and challenges. She listened and knew exactly what I needed to do to get to where I want to be. She makes it easy for me to understand and she is truly a great coach. I can’t wait to see her again.

I admire his tenacity and patience for being able to help teach those who struggle with learning challenges. He’s an excellent writer and has written columns before. I’ve read his autobiography detailing his life story about the hardships he faced in his past and how he overcame the odds to become successful in the numerous careers he has had leading up to teaching. He is able to listen carefully, articulate his ideas effectively and offer guidance to students by helping them reach their full potential. A great instructor takes the time to understand their students and I would highly recommend him for his willingness to put forth the effort to teach and create a comfortable learning experience for his students.

She is an excellent specialist, she is attentive, punctual and professional. Classes were held in relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Also Lori made me familiar with American medical, educational and other social systems. This was a really great help for me and for my family. I highly recommend Lori as an ESL teacher."

"I hired Henry to teach English for my little daughter. The reason i have chose him was he was the only one on the list who accept half hour lessons. I wanted to see şf he is good. I was gonna rşse to one hour if i like. And his hourly rate was reasonable too. We met and he was perfect. After my daughter we have studied with him. He has provided fastest improvement on my special purpose of need. It is really not common to see this passionate teachers around. His academic approach to your need and support with newest material in the maket was excellent. I think he is ahead of others because of his major. A senior jounalist, a TV person... he helped me a lot for my journalism career too... So i definitely can call him An excellent career coach. While i was trying to be on time with my project in Los Angeles, i was the lucky one to meet him through takelessons.com. He gave me what i need only at three weeks. We together focused on my certain project's needs and after i was ready to move alone almost. He is great to teach on bussiness emails, phone conversations, expressing your basic work situation etc.
He is great on accent reduction too. While i wrote this review my concerns is he will see and will find anything to correct... But he also has taught me to be courage enough too... Thank you Henry for everything you have done. I am a freelance foreign journalist in LA. He did his best for me both as a teacher and colleague. And such a good heart... Even if you don't share same opinions on any affair he respect you and try to give his best and more than what you have paid. He is patient too."

ESL Learners: Are You Making These 21 Common Mistakes?

There are certainly some tricky words in the English language! And sometimes, people who have learned English as a second language mix up these words. Want to avoid making the same mistakes? Here are the words ESL learners misuse the most. Them, Those, and These "Them" is a pronoun that stands in the place of a plural noun. It is commonly used as the subject of a sentence, as in: Did you see them? or Have you seen the scissors? I used them to cut the labels off my T-shirts; now I can’t fin …
