Susan is a wonderful French teacher both for adults and kids. We have had her as an in-home teacher for both over the past few years during the school year. She is very patient with the kids and keeps it fun for them, and also is a great conversationalist with the adults. I can’t recommend her enough. She is also versatile enough to teach German as well.

About Guifang

I have 10 years of language teaching experience. I have learned eight languages and dialects over the years in China and overseas. I started tutoring Chinese students (age 8-16) English and Chinese in 2009 and I founded my first summer camp in China in 2010. Students who had registered for my summer camp increased from 25 in 2010 to 86 in 2016. I've gained very valuable skills and perspectives in teaching, not just as a teacher, but also as a student--students are my teachers too--I've learned there are always places that I can improve and better help them learn languages. Students' "needs" and "wants" are prioritized. It helps students achieve their goals while combined with students' "lacks" in lesson planning. Students should get involved in the lesson planning process.

Interest is the best teacher. When I taught non-native Chinese

speakers (in China, South Korea and the U.S) Chinese, it seemed it stimulated their curiosity and interest to learn Chinese when cultural elements were introduced--such as characters' origin and visualization, historical contexts and cultural traditions. I hope that approach can also bring you an enjoyable experience learning a new language!

To help you be able to use Chinese, our language learning is mainly through interactive and communicative approaches. Talk! Talk! Talk! Please don't be shy. It's okay to make mistakes. Learning from mistakes is also a very effective way to learn a new language. We can make more contextualized dialogues based on whatever textbook you are using now. Or we can produce functional conversation based on everyday topics that you are interested. Lesson plans are customized and they can be flexible.

Ready to get on the boat and sail on the sea of Chinese? :)

About Yuko

I was born and graduated college in Japan. After I worked there several years, I decided to come to the US to study more.

As a piano teacher, I specialize for beginners. When you start playing, everybody realizes that your fingers don’t move as fast as you want to which is very normal. We are going to work on slowly in a fun way. I have taught from 3 years to 70 years old. Everyone can enjoy the piano anytime!!!

As a Japanese teacher, I will explain Japanese with cultural backgrounds so you can understand better. I can do both teaching and tutoring. Your goal is my goal. I would love to tailor the lessons whatever you are looking for.

I am very pleased with my first lesson! Yuko's method of instruction made it easy for me to catch on to patterns and to notice similarities to English and other languages. I am excited about how far I can go with her instruction.

Yuko is very kind and patient. She is also very knowledgeable and explains everything in such a great way my 13 year old enjoyed her class very much.

Marcellin
My son really loved Yuko who replaced his previous teacher who is no longer with Takelessons. He knows how to play some kids songs already. But after their lesson, there is this an instant motivation to learn deeper.
He is now having learning with Yuko.

About Amanda

Learning always takes on a new exciting flavor when you're working with someone who is truly passionate about seeing their students succeed, and that's me! I have been teaching all ages for about 16 years and I love my work.

My passion is English, English literature, writing (I am a published fiction author), and helping people acquire English through ESL instruction. I have students from Hong Kong to Houston and I love it! I also teach SAT and ACT verbal and essay writing sections and scored a perfect 6 on the essay for the GRE exam. I am a supportive and insightful writing coach and editor. I worked at the Paris Review just out of college in the editorial department and great works of English literature and non-fiction excite me profoundly. I have students now from middle school through to their 50's and I love them all.

I work

with adult business people on written presentations and research projects, from all over the world. Also many college level students work with me editing and perfecting essays for their classes and on research paper construction, development and editing in subjects areas as diverse as mapping genomes for olfactory function in mice to French literature theses or film studies papers.

I have a number of middle school kids working with me on creative writing currently as well.

I only teach online using Skype which is the easiest and most flexible way for me to work with my students from all over the world.
I work out of the EST time zone.

Just got my ACT score back, went 160 higher this time due to working with Amanda. I am in range for the school I have my heart set on. This teacher knows the exam and she will push you to your absolute best.

I love working with Amanda. She’s a great teacher and always helps me answer any questions I have with my assignments.

Yulia
I needed to improve my score on my SAT by 150 points. I worked with Amanda for 8 weeks, 2 hours a week, and I did it. I increased by 160. I also improved my essay score by 5 points! She is easy to work with, flexible and an expert at these exams. She also worked with me on the ACT and I scored an overall 34. Later I also needed to pass an essay exam to take classes through Harvard, English is not my first language. I passed the exam from working with Amanda and I was totally confident when I took the test, which makes a huge difference.

"Galina was awesome!! She was able to teach both of my kids more in half an hour than I was able to teach them in 8 years. Even though I speak Russian flue
ntly. One of them things!!!"

Mar
"So much fun! Loved learning with Roman! Look forward to more lessons."
Corey
"Delia is a great teacher. She has helped me understand what to expect in certain situations and how to ask for things. For example, when I go to order a d
rink in a special way, or when not to order certain things, etc. She is providing me with very relevant words and phrases that I will use a lot while visiting Italy. This is going to help me a lot. I'm looking forward to our next lesson!"
...
Sarah
"Mr. Slate is truly an amazing teacher! He is always willing to help his students and better his students in any way that he can and he keeps his classes f
un and interesting. I have learned more ASL with him than I have with anyone else because he is constantly pushing me to do better and is very approachable if I have any questions or need extra help. He is very invested in his students and is very knowledgeable in ASL and is amazing at his job! Love him!"

Ernest
"I've been working with Ana since August 2018, and she's been great. As I'm somewhat advanced, we mainly focus on conversation. What I like most about An
a is that she allows me to speak a lot, while correcting me when I make a mistake. Other tutors sometimes speak too much. Ana also selects very interesting material to work on during our lessons, which help build vocabulary. She can also provide good grammatical revisions if this is of interest. I highly recommend Ana!"
