As someone who needed to learn other languages, I can assist anyone whose native language is not English to become more proficient, or gain better conversational skills. My specialty is interview prep. I worked in IT, in marketing, have an MBA, interviewed candidates and been interviewed myself - so I can share insights with my students.

Diane has a great French accent and shares her teaching skills effectively. I would highly recommend her for all levels. We have read books and seen movies in French. Her world view and experience adds a lot. Vraiment!

Diane is a great German teacher! She always provides additional resources to delve into the subtleties of a translation or specific grammatical constructions and uses a variety of different books/activities so that the exercises never get boring.
Don H.
Once again, Diane has proven an exceptionally effective French instructor. She is conversant in American idioms and offers the French equivalents with ease. I am in awe of her ability to motivate and instruct.

I have taught English to Korean immigrants in Virginia. I organized English classes for church attendees who wished to improve their English communication skills. I developed weekly lessons based on the needs of the group which introduced them to the basics of English grammar and conversation.

Hannah is outstanding! She is wonderful! She was highly organized, patient, and she patterned her lesson for 90 minutes for a person who basically had no knowledge of English for a Korean student. Upon completion of the first lesson, she motivated me to work for another 3 hours at the kitchen table in preparation for the next lesson. I am happy.
Tracey
Hannah is an amazing teacher. My daughter loves learning with Hannah.
Colin
I recently began taking lessons with Hannah and it has been a wonderful experience. I went in intimidated at the thought of learning such a difficult language from scratch, but Hannah has been a very helpful and encouraging instructor and makes the language so much more manageable. I've been rather amazed by how much Korean I have been able to pick up in such a short time and have no doubt that I can become fluent eventually under her instruction. Anyone interested in learning Korean should absolutely take lessons with Hannah!

🇺🇸 アメリカン・イングリッシュ英会話を学びませんか?日本人の方の為の初心者向けの英会話レッスンです。アメリカのカリフォルニア州ロサンゼルスに20年以上在住しております。今すぐ役立つアメリカ英語の英会話をスカイプでお教え致します。世界各国のどこからでも学んで頂く事ができます。

🌟英語には色んなアクセントがありますが、アメリカのロサンゼルスの標準な英語が1番世界で使わせています。エンターテイメント業界があるハリウッド、また世界的にビジネスを広げている会社はアメリカの会社が1番多いので、標準なアメリカン英語の発音を使う事が好ましいのです。また、アメリカのニュース・キャスターは全てロサンゼルス(北アメリカ)の発音に統一されています。例えばアメリカのテキサス州やテネシー州など他の州は日本語と同じように方言や強いアクセントがあります。発音が違うと”田舎から来たの?”と思われてしまいがちなのが正直なところ現実です。日本語で例えると、東京弁が標準語ですが、九州弁や秋田弁など習ってしまうと仕事や普通の会話で使えなくなりますね。それと同じで標準なアメリカ・ロサンゼルス発音(北アメリカ)の英語が最も好ましいのです。

🌟ここでの英会話レッスンは日頃ロサンゼルスで良く使われる日常会話のレッスンや、日本人に難しい発音、アメリカと日本のカルチャーや考え方の違い、テキストを使わず生きた本当の英会話を学びたい方、またアメリカのハリウッド情報なども、お伝えして行きます。

🌟こんな方に!“海外旅行をしてみたい”、“日本に旅行にくる外国人と会話してみたいけど、どのように会話を進めて良いか分からない”、”文法が分からず会話ができない”、”発音に自信がない”、”外国人の彼氏/彼女がいて、もっとコミュニケーションを深く取りたい”、”外国人の友達の言っている事をもっと理解したい”、”外資系の会社や外国人のお客様を扱う業界で働いている”など、あなたの英会話の発達と理解力、聞き取りの向上、スムーズな会話のテクニック、本当のアメリカン英会話をお教え致します。

勇気を出して”Hello”って言ってみませんか?

あなたにお会いできるのを楽しみにしています。

I can’t wait to work with you!

Thanks so much for Toshi in this quarantine time training. Toshi is a very strict teacher and mentor. And thank you for being an inspiration for my Japanese journey. You taught me how to strive for perfect pronunciation and precise in Japanese speaking skills, giving 200% when I’m studying/training and push my self over the limit. You taught me how to think smart and better, confidence for my Japanese. You totally changed my negativity. I will keep training as hard as my brain allows me to do so. Thanks ❤️

Toshi is an excellent teacher for students of any skill level! He's very knowledgable, friendly, and does a great job including information about Japanese culture to help teach the language.

Students often develop anxiety or a lack of confidence that causes them to struggle with English. These issues are very real and can affect student's enthusiasm and dedication to other subjects as well. I am very aware of these issues and my lessons not only teach skills and methods to become better in the subject, but also address and try to work on some of the difficulties students have had in the past. I am eager to show students how they can change their relationship with English and turn it into a tool they can use to improve their lives.

Charlie
Highly recommend Jesse as a Spanish tutor! Have been working with Jesse for almost 9 months (2 hrs + / weekly) and my Spanish fluency has rapidly increased over this period. Jesse's lesson plans are highly curated for my specific goals, learning style and interests. It's been a pleasure working with Jesse and appreciate his willingness to accommodate with my busy work / travel schedule.

General Note: I majored in Spanish undergrad, and have explored a number of different way to continue learning in NYC - group classes and language programs have their value but can not complete with in-person, 1v1 instruction.
Katy C.
A knowledgeable and patient educator, Jesse has found a teaching style that perfectly balances challenge and inspiration. As a doctoral candidate in the sciences, it is important for me to assert my knowledge of a topic while capturing the attention of the reader. Jesse has taught me to transform bare facts and ideas into structured, sophisticated passages. He has played an active role in building my self-confidence and has helped me find an authentic writing voice to more clearly and elegantly express my thoughts. I am grateful to have his guidance and am eager to vouch for his excellence as a tutor.
Laura S.
I am so lucky that I found Jesse! He is thoughtful, thorough, patient, and kind, and his lessons always felt like they were tailored specifically to me and my needs. Even his teaching materials were personalized to include my name and phrases that only I would need to use (i.e. I'm an actress and piano teacher, and I've been living and working in NYC for over ten years). Highly recommended!

"When I came to the US my English language level was not great. I had studied in school in Turkey, but my pronunciation was difficult to understand and the grammar was impossible for me. I have been taking classes for about 1.5 years now with Micah and another instructor that works for her, and I have improved a lot. I have even been giving presentations at my job now. I am an engineer.

I was not expecting to improve my level like that in 1.5 years. Learn English or Spanish LLC has talented teachers. Now I am planning to take the TOEFL in 6 months, and I will prepare for it with them. After that, my goal is a Masters degree. I highly recommend classes with them.

They are extremely effective teachers."
