🇺🇸 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(18歳以下)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。

🎖信頼なるバックグラウンド記章バッチ付き教師🎖
Takelessons.comを通しアメリカのバックグラウンド確認調査にパスし犯歴、訴訟歴、性的暴行歴、破産歴、税務滞納歴、交通違反、飲酒運転歴の全く無い教師として安心して未成年のお子様を預けて頂けます。(英語のできる方は、このプロフィールの私の名前の下にある” Background Check”をクリックしてご覧下さい。)

🌟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。

Toshi is a great teacher that not only teaches regular Japanese, but about Japanese cultures and things you may not know or find in textbooks. Out of any of the Japanese teachers, I recommend him.

This review is an update from our last review 2 years ago...

2.5 years ago we were fortunate enough to find Toshi to teach our son Japanese. Our son started out as a high school student wanting to understand anime and his video games in their original language. Our son is legally blind so a talented and creative teacher was needed. Since then he has enjoyed learning the language with Toshi so much that he has formed professional goals to become a translator. Our son is now heading to university in the fall and will be majoring in Japanese Studies. The program includes a semester abroad in Japan and an internship with a major Japanese corporation. His goal is long term so he will continue to work with Toshi alongside his college studies to reach his goals. Toshi has always taken our son seriously and has adjusted his teaching program as his goals expanded. Toshi’s lessons are still a highlight of the week and it continuously surprises us to hear our son speak the language so beautifully. Our long term investment of lessons with Toshi has been very successful and such a positive experience. We highly recommend Toshi!

About Julie

I am passionate about Music and Music Education. It's rewarding for me to watch my students develop in their musical skill and enjoy making music more and more. My students range from the very young (5 years old) to school age children, to teens, and adults. My students benefit from my expertise i

When I began lessons with Julie, I had piano experience, but it had been years, 35 actually, that had flown by. I've recently retired, and enjoy playing piano up to two hours each day. I chose Julie because of her expertise and experience. Julie is an outstanding teacher who possesses a legitimate love for music. She has a patient ability with simplifying complex subjects and makes learning fun. I hope to continue taking lessons with Julie for a long time to come. I would recommend Julie to anyone, at any age, interested in piano regardless of skill level.
Colby M.
As an adult student it was hard for me to finally commit to finally taking piano lessons. I always had the excuses that I was either too busy or too late in life to start.

Julie has gave me every reason to throw those excuses out the window. After a month of lessons I can already tell an improvement in my reading of music and knowledge of music. She knows how to making things easy for me to understand while also balancing that with a great challenge.

I have very high expectations and goals set for myself, that many would say are "too high". But I have no doubt Julie will get me to where I want to go!

100% would recommend to anyone.
Jordan F.
Just had my first lesson with Julie. She was great! So energetic, fun, and personable. It’s obvious she’s a seasoned educator who knows her subject. I left our first meeting confident I had chosen a teacher who will help me achieve my goals. Can’t wait to flourish under her instruction!

I would recommend Jesse for any tutoring need without reservation. In our household, Jesse has helped amplify the Spanish learning for a middle/hs student, helped an older student with the application process for graduate work and worked with someone on writing. He’s phenomenal at all of it for the following reasons: his patience, intelligence and good nature are exceptional; he can work with all temperaments; he will meet your student where they are. Most important: he is systematic and provides real executive functioning support for each task. He is an unusually talented tutor and human being.
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.

I would really love the opportunity to help you improve your English abilities. I believe in using examples, scenarios, conversation and visual aids to keep the class interesting. I listen to students needs in order to let you guide the lesson topics to where your learning needs and goals will be achieved. I am just a subject matter expert and a facilitator of your learning. I believe strongly in the value of education, self-learning and continuous learning. You will be a better learner if you approach each topic from your interests and from a discovery approach. You may find that learning English while also learning about other topics (business, careers, hobbies, interests, travel, culture, etc.) makes it more valuable.

It’s been more than 2 years since I started my lessons with Eric and I suppose I was lucky to find such a professional with a strong business and PhD background. It was important for me to develop my verbal communication abilities in finance and economics and Eric was definitely the right choice. Both his personal and professional skills make the studying process smooth and efficient and I really see the results as I have become much more confident when making presentations and also I passed successfully CFA Exam Level I. Apart from relevant and coherent agendas for our well-structured lessons with intensive homework preparation materials I can also emphasize his punctuality and friendliness. He is a really good tutor and I highly recommend him!

"No one ever told me before what I was saying wrong, and Micah would correct me so that I could improve.

She has specialized trademarked drills that she has created so that we train my muscles to move exactly with the true sounds of English as opposed to accent courses that show you the sounds alone. No sounds are said by themselves, so we do drills that incorporate full sentences so that I sound more like a native speaker. She even created Sound Like Americans Accent bootcamp course, and she gave me that for free that I use for the rest of my life and follow the 2-minute drills every day.

We also worked on presentations so that I could improve my pronunciation for the exact words that I would be using in my meetings with clients."

English Language Conversations for Beginners

Although words may be limited and simple, it is still possible to enjoy conversations in English even if you are a beginner. I think that it’s essential to be able to express basic needs and to clearly express your identity. Let’s get started with the very basics and then we’ll build from there.
