Julia was very organized and well informed about chemistry. She was so much help. I would definitely use her again.
Oleg
Great help to our 9y.o., who is exploring math. Clear explanation, additional materials, and a nice memo after each lesson. Thank you! Will do again!
Kate
Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools.
I see marked improvements in their grades for this past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise.
Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough.

He pinpoints a lot of small things, that overall help tremendously. He has a great ear and picks up on little subtleties in your voice that you can improve, and this causes you to hold yourself accountable to the same standards as a result. Overall, after just one lesson, i have learned a lot and am eager to continue learning with Adam.
Justin

Amanda is a fantastic teacher! She is professional, caring, understanding, patient and most of all full of ideas. She helped me to prepare for and pass the FCE exam. I also made huge progress with my speaking skills and fell in love with English to such an extent that I graduated from English philology and became English teacher myself. I can recommend Amanda to everybody.
Dawid
Amanda is a great teacher! During my lessons we've mostly talked (she could always come up with some interesting topics to chat about) and as a result now I have no problem with speaking at all - I don't feel intimidated or embarassed when I have to speak english, either face to face or in front of the audience. We've also did some exercises on not so well known parts of the language, for example proverbs. Interesting conversations, great attitude and professional knowledge of english, from a native speaker perspective is what makes learning with Amanda a really pleasant and enriching experience. Five out of five!

Learn English (ESL) in NYC

English is one of the most complex languages to learn in the world, but with the right teacher behind you, the road to fluency is completely possible. Taking English classes in NYC will benefit you in countless ways, including being able to communicate on a global scale, since businesses around the world use English as a united method of communication.

This is not a language you want to learn on your own, though - it’s much easier to take private lessons or ESL classes in NYC. Here are a few of the basics you’ll need to know when you start to learn English in New York with one of our certified tutors.

The Benefits of English Classes in NYC

Did you know that there are over 800 languages spoken in New York City alone? This vibrant metropolis is truly a multicultural melting pot of people from around the world. According to a US Census Bureau survey, 49 percent of New York City households speak another language first, over English.

There are many residents on the road to fluency, so you’ll be in great company here when you’re ready to start private English lessons in NYC. With a population of 8.6 million, the five boroughs that make up the “Big Apple” border the beautiful Hudson River and parts of the Atlantic ocean.

New York is a bustling city with much to see and explore. The sheer number of restaurants alone with cuisine from around the world make it one of the best places to experience city life in America.

Learning ESL in NYC with a Tutor

It’s much easier to learn English in a one-on-one environment, and there are many private tutors in NYC that are qualified to teach ESL. Our top-rated English teachers have impressive resumes, including some with TESOL certification and years of experience to their credit.

Most have their Bachelor's and Master’s degrees from top-ranking universities in New York and around the country, including fine institutions like Harvard, Stanford, and Oxford. So you’ll be in good hands when you take an ESL class in NYC with one of our qualified English teachers.

Our English tutors in NYC have worked with students from around the world, including places like Russia, Germany, Spain, and South America. If you’re looking for someone who can connect with your unique needs, you’ve come to the right place.

Where to Take Private ESL Classes in NYC

No matter which borough you live in, from Staten Island to the Bronx, Brooklyn, and even Queens, finding your perfect tutor couldn't be easier. Manhattanites are also learning ESL in New York in record numbers.

TakeLessons makes it easy to schedule classes with your own private tutor. Many of our teachers are happy to come to your home for lessons, or meet up in one of the many local coffee shops, museums, and parks around the city.

Want to have your first ESL lesson in Central Park overlooking the gorgeous scenery? You can have the freedom to choose whichever environment inspires you the most. This makes learning much more fun - no more boring classrooms with plain, white walls and uncomfortable desks!

Before Your First ESL Class in NYC

When you’re ready to start English classes in New York, there are a few things that will help you prepare. Your private ESL teacher in NYC will develop a curriculum tailored to your learning style and goals, but you may want to pick up some supplies before your first lesson.

Pick up a pad of notebook paper, some colorful pens, or a pocket dictionary. These are all great items to keep on hand when you need to look up a new word or take notes on something you have questions about throughout your day.

The best place to go to get stationery supplies is the New York University bookstore in the East Village of Lower Manhattan. The East Village also has an excellent coffee shop called “Think Coffee” that would be the perfect study spot!

Practicing ESL in NYC

Once you decide to learn English in NYC, you’ll quickly find is that you have many opportunities to practice. New Yorkers are very friendly. The perception of New York years ago was that it was a difficult place to live with non-communicative people, but it’s just not like that anymore.

You’ll encounter people all over the Big Apple who are more than happy to chat while you learn English in NYC. There are a variety of shopping centers, including the famed Fifth Avenue shops, the Grand Bazaar NYC, Union Square, and Chelsea Marketplace, where you’ll be able to put your newfound skills to good use.

You can also visit the many public libraries to practice reading in your spare time. One of the best ones to check out is the New York Society Library. Poets House is another gorgeous spot overlooking the Hudson River that is a wonderful place to learn if you love the art of poetry.
