About Douglas
I combine my two decades of experience as a professional tutor and corporate writer with my own personal understanding of the learning struggles faced by students to create unique methods for every student to learn, regardless of the subject. I use creative innovations to make learning fun and enjoyable for my students. My students quickly see how much I care for their progress and success. Many have chosen to retain me as their tutor for more than a year.

I had the opportunity to work with Douglas a number of times during my tenure as a part-time instructor at SCORE Educational Center. What I noticed about him was that he related very well to the children he worked with - he was a very enthusiastic tutor of English and math! He was most generous with the "high fives" and praise, and he also knew how to get students back on track if their focus strayed. Also, I saw him work very well with the parents; he always took the time to patiently explain lesson plans and students' progress between sessions. I have known Douglas personally for many years. He was the one who encouraged me to work at SCORE Educational Center given my background in Education - I thank him for that because I enjoyed my time there very much while I was able to stay (unfortunately, I had to leave that position for a full-time job elsewhere). SCORE Educational Center is no longer in existence. Douglas currently works as an independent tutor, and given how long I've seen clients stick with him, I have no doubt that they are enjoying the same level of attention and enthusiasm he provided at SCORE. When he speaks about the progress of independent clients and how they respond to him, it is with enthusiasm and a glowing smile. If you are looking for a tutor that is intelligent, dedicated, enthusiastic, and simply great with kids and parents, then Douglas is your man.

About Jimmy
My name is Jimmy. I have been teaching Spanish for about seven years now. I have taught all ages from kindergarten to adults.

As a current teacher, my primary goal is to make sure the students have engaging and fun experiences while learning Spanish. I do not lecture solely on the nuts and bolts of the language but rather allow the student to perform the language in order to learn it.

I do want to make clear that I do teach young children (ages 2-12) but I prefer to teach them in person and at least twice a week. I believe the experience to be more valuable that way.

Additionally, I ask that parents or potential adult students and with me talk for a while before signing up for lessons. I may not be able the person to give you what you need. I want to be sure your needs are met through Take Lessons and I may not be the person th
at can do that. So, please message me often.

One last note: If we are meeting in person, I am only willing to meet in public locations and not anyone's home.

I am always excited to teach someone this language I love so much.

¡Gracias!

About Francesca
I was born and raised in Vicenza, an hour west from Venice. My husband is American, we met in Italy and after living together there for 15 years, we decided to move back to the US last Summer. We have two kids, 7 and 4, who are perfectly bilingual.
I have always enjoyed teaching English to little kids and adult friends in Italy, so I can only enjoy teaching Italian even more. Although I'm enjoying this adventure in the US, I miss my country tremendously and teaching and speaking my own language is one of the things that excites me the most. I have also travelled Italy and most of Europe extensively, and I love discussing about all the different cultural environments that I've experienced.

About Aimee
I teach gospel piano and beginner piano, flute, chess and English/ESL.

Use your ears, use your fingers and all the other gifts God gave you to assist during your local worship service. I come from a long line (4 generations) of church musicians. I trained classically on piano and flute - and can teach the basics for both instruments across genres. I have also been a journalist for The Associated Press (gotta have a day job!). And have done grant writing work for nonprofits. I can help you improve your English writing and speaking skills. And I love to play chess (gotta have a hobby!). But when it comes to Gospel - you need a little theory and a lot of heart and soul to develop your musical ear! Come join me at my storefront church or we can meet up online. After you get the scales and common chord structures down, you'll be ready
to go!

About Alyssa
As soon as I graduated from Keuka College I moved to Aspen, Colorado to work for the only all year-round Deaf camp in the country. There, I worked with an all Deaf Staff who helped me build who I am today as an interpreter and encouraged me to start tutoring. Since coming back, I have worked with a Deaf school loving my day to day schedule.
Last year I was with a special needs class who had students with different levels of Deafness and educational needs. I especially loved that class due to getting to know each student individually and in a group setting. They all have their different ways of learning, processing and attending to work. However, once you figure out each of their special ways, you can really give them the help they need to succeed.
Every child and adult has different ways of processing and learning infor
mation given to them. It's my job as a teacher and tutor to figure that out and do whatever I can to help them succeed.
I don't have one way of tutoring. I adjust my lessons based off of each student and how they take retain information. American Sign Language is a very visual language and can be easier to learn for some. For others, maybe not as easy. However, no matter how difficult or easy it may be for you, I will always make it fun, educational, and a worth while learning experience for you!

Dear future student,
Did you ever wish you could say more than nihaoma?
Does ni hao kai lan make you wish you could be fluent in Mandarin?
If so, let me know if you want to get started today in the basics of Mandarin.
Not only will you impress your mother, but you could impress your waiter and eventually tell jokes in Mandarin.
What are you waiting for?

About Michael H.

About Michael
I'm a High School ESL Teacher in the country of China. I'm an introverted individual but when I teach I am much more social and talkative. I recently took a personality inventory called Clifton Strengths and I will share with you what my strengths were on this test.

Responsibility- The way I approach responsibility is by the belief that it is my responsibility to help a student learn English. Techniques I use to enable this are reviewing what we went over from previous lessons to make sure a student is learning the material well.

Developer-The way I approach this is by setting a goal and getting my student to accomplish that goal by using different techniques I have learned through out my teaching career. AS technique I have used in the past is something called Test Teach Test.

Empathy
Listening is one of my better skills. I think
it is important to listen to people and it requires effort to do. By listening to the feelings of others, I become clearer and less conflicted. My empathy leads me to listen to the message of the person but also having care for the person who is talking also. Everybody deserves to be listened to.

Intellection

I like to I share ideas and pose questions. Learning new things is very important to me and posing questions to people and sharing ideas is a fun environment to be in for me and it is in this environment when I learn things well.

Deliberative
I like roles where I can research and analyze information. I have a way of thinking that enables me to analyze information well. I like to analyze subjects related to the social sciences but I’m also good at analyzing educational practices and strategies to see if students are learning or if they are not learning.

The teaching strategy or process I like to use is called differentiated instruction and I do this by using a process called the Daily 5. The Daily 5 is a series of tasks that students must complete on a daily basis. They must read to themselves, read to someone else, listen to reading, work on writing, and do word work. This process makes the process of learning repetitive and easier which I think is important when learning a second language.
