Private ESL Teacher

I've been teaching English for 3 years and my students have gone from total beginner to intermediate level. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to introduce yourself and speak about basic conversational subjects and as time goes on you'll be able to speak about many more specific topics. I can work with you on your written and oral understanding skills as well as written and oral producing. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

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!

Online ESL Teacher

I’m 100% positive that I know exactly what it takes to become a fluent and confident English speaker. I know tons of tricks and methods to an easier, fun and brain-friendly learning journey. I love working with students to improve conversational skills, build confidence and encourage them to improve, not only their English but improve as human beings.
I became an English Coach after I noticed that people were having classes for six months (or more) and still were not able to have a simple conversation. So the only option was to believe that the method people were learning from was not efficient enough. I’ve noticed that people were having English classes but were not really using the language and sometimes, not even having enough contact with it to improve.

How I work

I’ve never been a huge fan of traditional methods, which is usually what we see out there. This idea of learning a language through grammar, and thinking that you will reach fluency like that never made much ...

Amazing Coach!! The only one that was able to make me sound better!!

Ty rocks!!! I’ve had taken classes before with a lot of teachers but I could never see myself becoming comfortable to speak with a native English speaker. After having classes with Ty, he showed everything in a very simple way. Now I’m able to talk to anyone without feeling concerned.

For each of them Roman finds themes interesting to talk about and write about. Grammar and other boring stuff are taken needed care of, but main emphasis of lessons are on free talk."
