About Sam

Hi! My name is Sam! This is my fifth year with TakeLessons and I couldn't be happier with the students that have come my way. If you're reading this, then you've taken the first step in finding a tutor that is right for you!

I completed two Bachelor's degrees at Worcester State University in Massachusetts. I have a B.A in Spanish and a B.A in Communication.

I love Spanish, and I believe that you can really get the hang of it after a little time and practice. With grammar review, practice, and vocabulary memorization, it becomes really easy to learn this language. I am more than happy to be here to help you learn this exciting language! Proper pacing is crucial to learning a new language. Therefore, I make each lesson customized for every student.

Every lesson, you will receive downloadable links with all of the content covered

in the lesson.

I also teach group classes. These are great for those that prefer larger classrooms and interacting with peers. Check out the Takelessons Live page and sign up for some of my classes!

Aside from Spanish, I also teach Adobe Photoshop & Photography. There are endless possibilities with Photoshop, and I am here to let you discover some of them. No experience? Tired of watching online tutorials with no feedback? Maybe you need a tutor to guide you through the process!

We will start off with layers and then go on from there, moving into the more intricate tools such as the pen tool, layer masks, and blending modes.

For photography lessons, I teach you the technical language you need to know when talking about photos. I will show you how to command your DSLR camera to get the exact photo you want.

About Melissa

I have been teaching Spanish, Portuguese and English at both the high school and college levels since 2007. I have a PhD in Spanish and Portuguese (Romance Languages) from Harvard University, and I have taught everything from Spanish 1 through advanced literature courses, to Portuguese for Spanish Speakers.

I enjoy working with students one on one and helping them feel empowered to use the language right away. I put a lot of time and joy into planning classes for each student, based on their goals and interests. I keep my classes really light and fun, but I will also make sure that you are learning!

I have experience working with students with learning differences, and have worked with children and adults.

If you want to work with a real teacher who can design a class just for you, I am the teacher you are looking for!

Whate

ver your goals are with your language of interest, I can help you get there. Get in touch any time to tell me about your goals. Hasta pronto!

Melissa is a miracle worker! My mother-in-law moved to the United States 40 years ago unable to speak english and while she has done a good job at learning on her own, she had significant gaps in her ability to effectively communicate. For her 68th birthday, I bought her lessons with Melissa. My mother-in-law told me I was wasting my money because she couldn't learn anything new. Well, needless to say, she can learn and with Melissa's excellent tutelage has dramatically increased her ability to speak and comprehend english. This has enabled a new level of confidence and freedom that she did not previously have and is a game changer for her. I attribute her improvement directly to Melissa's ability to understand her student's needs and personalities and craft and deliver a quality, tailored curriculum. After our first round of classes, my mother-in-law is excited to continue the lessons and has a renewed curiosity and interest in learning. Great job and thank you Melissa!!!

Melissa has a lovely calming personality. She made us feel completely at ease while learning a foreign language. She was prepared and tailored the lesson for our specific goals and level.

She displayed an expert knowledge of the language, but was still able to teach beginners. Plus we could tell she really loved Portuguese.

The online format was great. Cant wait for the next lesson.

About Jacqui

My name is Jacqui, and I am a licensed speech-language pathologist and member of the American Speech-Language Hearing Association. I have a diverse background in public speaking, voice disorders, autism, traumatic brain injury, stroke recovery, swallowing and pediatric therapy programs. As a licensed speech-language pathologist, my clinical background specializes in speech mechanics, voice and resonance.

I believe the greatest individual success can be achieved when your voice can be heard. I understand that communication barriers and one’s voice image cause limitation for students, leaders and companies. My training programs provide the necessary tools and skill sets that position professionals to communicate clearly and confidently.

My accent modification programs are designed to provide solutions to reduce your communication barrie

rs quickly and speak with greater clarity and confidence. You will notice improvement in just 2-3 weeks with consistent practice. I will provide tools for you to practice throughout your day so you can exercise your new speech at work, home, and in the community. My goal is to empower you as a professional to speak with a voice reflective of a confident leader. I look forward to our communication journey together!

Jacqui is an excellent speech therapist and instructor. I learned so much from each lesson she gave me. I can't thank her enough for the confidence she gave me in my speech, as public speaking is critical for my new career. Not to mention, her outgoing personality made the experience fun. Thank you!

I was worried about using an online service for accent reduction but with my schedule I didn’t have another option. After working with Jacqui, I only wish I acted sooner. Jacqui was flexible with her availability and the results speak for themselves. My clients and I can now focus on the task at hand. No more “What? Could you repeat that?”!

About Scott

Hi, everyone! Do you want your student to improve in math? Does your student need someone to help with developing writing or grammar or reading skills? Would you like your student to be able to throw a football 75 yards in the air?

If you answered "Yes" to any of those questions, I can help! (Except for the one about the football; maybe your student should try pumping iron or something.)

I've worked with kids in math and English for many years, including my own (my wife and I have four graduates), and I enjoy making subjects fun and interesting with students, while we get the job done.

Some valuable learning, a pat on the back, and a shot of confidence: that's what I offer to families. Thanks for checking me out!

About Emi

I am fluent in Spanish and English, I have been raised speaking Spanish at home and English outside my house. I graduate from Rhode Island College with a bachelors in Finances, and have experience as a Spanish Interpreter for a law office.

Each student has a unique learning process, and my job is to built in the right materials to boost your knowledge retention. As a student you can expect from me to be your tutor not only during the class time but also outside the classroom. I understand first hand that learning a new language does not take one hour a day but is about practicing constantly.

I teach Spanish grammar to students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied Spanish grammar for 8 years. I can teach students to write short essays, poems, narratives as well as recommended great Spanish novels depending on the

goals and preference of the student.

My personal passion is to help people overcome challenges, as a student you will get my complete support in helping you learning a new language in and outside the lessons time. I look forward to meeting you and helping learn Spanish!

About Josh

Hi! I'm Josh. I'm a TEFL certified professional English teacher, the host of the YouTube channel "English Hacks", and the author of three books on English learning and one book on general language learning (available on Amazon). I have over 5 years of experience and have given thousands of one-on-one lessons!

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!

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 very 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. 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.

Besides the fact that Josh is very friendly, active and communicative, he is just different than any other teachers. He has his own unique process of working on student's accent reduction, listening and understanding English native speakers. With him you will get familiar with the rhythm and music of English speech that will help you to become fluent. But if you decide to up your grammar, I would highly recommend to get his course along with his books. It is worth it to have him as your teacher. I wish everybody lots of luck and fun in studying.

Josh uses very creative methods to teach English. For example, he is always prepared with a lot of examples, tools, books that he has written, and activities that you don't find in a normal class, and has an extensive background in helping people learn how to improve.

Josh is very supportive and understanding and he uses his creative methods to help people understand whatever they need to focus on.

Josh goes deeply into all the areas of language learning and teaches people how many things work in a logical way.
