Happy to share that my daughter is accepted by her first choice college. Rebecca is professional, tenacious, positive and a joy to work with. Wish I could give her 10 stars!

Bill is a patient, knowledgeable, and experienced instructor. His lessons are well-planned with effective exercises to reinforce the lessons being taught. What I love the most is that these are one-on-one, in-person (online) lessons that provide immediate personalized feedback.
Learning from Bill has made me more comfortable with my ability to give presentations at work.
I would recommend Bill to anyone looking to improve their speaking skills.

TakeLessons sends an email out that has a button to click on that says join class. This is misleading as the class is being held on Skype. Wasted 2/3 of the class getting connected on Skype after waiting for instructor on the email link.

This is the college-level English language exam for non-native speakers, frequently required for international (F-1) visa students. The test emphasizes vocabulary knowledge and reading comprehension, as well as speaking, writing, and analytical skills. I have taught it, here, through web-conferencing, at Asian learning centers, and at public libraries for students seeking college enrollment. I often pair the core exercises with pronunciation practice to enable an optimal advantage. I also cover the IELTS effectively through my emphasis on spoken, verbal language comprehension using computer-mediated audio feedback and monitoring.

A dedicated PhD for language and E-Learning, I am a member of the Association for Language Learning, located in Leicester, UK.

I am not sure how I did. The process of using voice is ok but it seems like using this process may take some time to get use to. I still have not received the review information and it's difficult to practice pronouncing the words. Babbel seems to work better with the practice audios etc

I have been teaching for five years. I match my curriculum to the goals of my students. I help with homework and add additional problems for the areas that they are having difficulty understanding. I like to use real life and visual representations as often as possible to help the student gain a more thorough understanding of the subject matter. I believe that learning should be fun and strive to inspire my students to enjoy learning even if they think the subject is a challenge.
