Online English Teacher

As someone who needed to learn other languages, I can assist anyone whose native language is not English to become more proficient, improve their grammar, and gain better conversational skills.
One of my specialties is interview prep. I worked in IT, in marketing, and have an MBA, interviewed candidates and been interviewed myself - so I can share insights with my students.
However I also hold "regular conversation," while I listen attentively to my student, and correct grammar and style.

Once you start lessons with me, I evaluate your level and listen to you to learn about your goals and ambitions. Then, I design custom lessons to meet your specific needs. I’m very approachable and always happy to have a free consultation session with you so you can see if I can help you in your language learning journey.

🇺🇸 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。

Very informative, iv been taking Toshi’s one on one classes along with a college class and I usually learn more from one class than I do from 2 of my 2 hour college classes. Toshi is also very supportive and will make sure that you can reach the level of Japanese fluency that you want at the space that you are comfortable. ありがとございます、とし先生

I am writing this from my moms phone so I thought I should elaborate that I am a 15 year old student, but I absolutely love my lessons with Toshi-san. He is hilarious and makes lessons extremely fun and makes it a lot easier to retain information. It is very hard for me to remember things and be invested due to my ADHD but he never fails to keep my attention. I definitely recommend him for everyone! I think anyone who wants to learn proper Japanese and etiquette should have lessons with him.
Alexis
So cool and personable, and you can tell he genuinely cares and knows what he is talking about. The best possible first lesson I could have asked for. I loved it! So looking forward to see how this goes!!!

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!
