About Erol G.

Close
Panorama City, CA

View Full Profile

I have 5-7 years experience teaching English at public and private educational settings, including college, university, and library. My specialization is in American English accent reduction for non-native speakers. I use multi-media teaching strategies.

Possibly the only dedicated PhD for E-Learning on the TakeLessons server, I am member of the Association for Language Learning, located in Leicester, UK.

About Erol
***ADDRESSES WITHIN REMOTE AREAS (no public transit or bicycle access) DIFFICULT TO SERVICE PHYSICALLY. Lesson cancellations and schedule changes need to be submitted through Takelessons.com student website, relieve busy teacher from multiple informal requests***

My style and attitude toward teaching is a balance between subject delivery and reflective, supportive interaction. I seek to enable current research on education for busy, yet goal-driven student interests. This is done through customized online lessons coordinating the experience with optimal resources and tools: ESL and Speech students learn to monitor their own phonological issues with dedicated software/feedback, guiding German students through conversational dialogues, and ensuring relevant resources for Excel and related productivity lessons.

Due to my limited funds
, I do not have direct experience with the Adobe suite, but I have extensive knowledge of related, free distributions that are transferable. Possibly the only PhD on Takelessons server from a regionally accredited university, I am a member of the American Council on Foreign Language Learning and the Association for Language Learning.
My most popular subjects are as follows:

North American English Pronunciation Practice for ESL (NAEPP-ESL) or Accent-Reduction:
*****Each Online Lesson with Free Video & MP3 recordings, and about 50 GB onedrive folder for lesson files*****

Carefully following Burkkowsky's (1969) multi-media method, I have taught this subject for over five years for public and private causes, such as library, individuals, and language schools. German Language and Culture:
*****Each Online Lesson with Free Video & MP3 Recordings and about 50 GB onedrive folder for lesson files*****

Microsoft Excel:
***It is recommended students own or have regular access to a personal computer after 2002 in order to get the best benefit***

I was born in Vienna, Austria to Nigerian parents. I grew up partly in Nigeria, and Austria. English is one of three languages I speak fluently. Having lived in different parts of the world, I know what it is like to be new somewhere, or unable to communicate effectively due to a language barrier. I currently work for a major United States airline as an international Flight Attendant because I have a passion for helping people, getting to know other places, and learning about different cultures. I am excited to share my knowledge, and help YOU learn English.

For the past 5 years, I have worked on various online English (ESL) tutoring platforms. If you are a beginner, intermediate or advance student, I would be more than happy to help you clearly speak the English language. I have tutored students worldwide to improve their Conversational English such as pronunciation, reading comprehension, writing and vocabulary. My tutoring styles are to work together with lesson plans, exercises or project based learning. Did you know that “I am” is the shortest complete sentence in the English language? I am. “I” is the subject, and “am” is the verb. And, did you know that "Bookkeeper" and "Bookkeeping" are only words in the English language with three consecutive double letters? Preparing for a job interview? Let’s role play to help you successfully secure that job. I am a business owner, published author, and earned my Doctorate Degree: (biblical studies & international missions). My hobbies are traveling, museums, and history. Commanding the ...

About mekdad Z.

I feel like my wide scope of experience spanning over 20 years has given me a unique ability to adapt and adjust to almost every scenario in the classroom. Of course, there are still some things that surprise me from time to time, but I would like to think that all those years of teaching in so many different settings has given me a perspective that those who may have taught in only one setting or in one type of school all their career might lack.

About mekdad
“No one is irreplaceable”

And I am lucky (was) because I have (had) an excellent principal (using the past tense because she is going for regional counselor and she 'll get the job). Also, I am surrounded by professionals who know their jobs. Imho the issue is not being unique, but being part of a good team.

Thx

About Josh M.

A language isn't just one skill. It's a set of skills and the traditional, classroom-based approaches to language learning aren't very effective, especially for developing your speaking skills. My philosophy is to be a guide and mentor who is very focused on your needs and interests and who can give you the tools and information that you need in order to succeed as an English speaker. Because of this, I don't have a specific, rigid type of lesson that is too focused on grammar like traditional classes. Instead, I work with you to create the type of lessons and learning plan that best suit you.

I specialize in American pronunciation and ear training (including accent reduction), as well as language mentoring (learning how to learn a language in the best way that works for you), but I also have a lot of different activities and tips to improve all of your English language skills if needed. NOTE: If your main focus is accent reduction/pronunciation skills, please sign up for my accent

About Josh
TEFL professionally certified English teacher and author of several books on English learning/language learning! I have over 5 years of experience and have given thousands of one-on-one lessons! I have learned a lot, but I am always trying to improve.

I specialize in American pronunciation training and accent reduction, as well as language mentoring (learning how to learn a language in the way that works best for you) but I also have a lot of different activities to improve all of your English language skills if desired.

I love languages! I speak Spanish and I have also studied Japanese, German, some Portuguese, and a little Esperanto, so I know how difficult it can be to learn a new language.

I am really good at connecting things, and this helps me to teach you better. I definitely understand how scary speaking can be and I am v
ery patient, so you can relax and feel comfortable with me. My philosophy is to be a guide and mentor who is very focused on your needs and interests and who can give you the tools and information that you need in order to succeed as an English speaker.

Although English idioms don't make sense at first, these unique expressions (together with proverbs) add substance and humor to our conversations. The Oxford Dictionary defines the word "idiom" as a: "group of words established by usage as having a meaning not deducible from those of the individual words (e.g. over the moon, see the light)."
