Erin was so very patient with me and so kind. She is a great teacher!
Christina I.
I had my first lesson with Erin yesterday and it was great!! She is very patient and a great listener
Chelsea Coffman
I had a wonderful time in my first lesson. Erin was extremely knowledgeable and also very friendly. She was able to turn her camera around so that I could see what she was doing really clearly, and she explained things in a way that was easy for me to understand. She was very patient with me, as I'm a slow knitter, and was able to tell when I made mistakes and helped me correct them. I would absolutely recommend Erin to anyone looking to get started, wanting to learn more complicated projects, and/or needing help with specific questions.

I enjoy teaching in a dynamic FUN Immersion Method (songs, stories, games). I worked two years in a preschool because I love teaching kids using all my communication skills.

About Marie A

Marie is an amazing teacher. I took a couple of years of French in high school and have learned in a much more fluid, easier to understand way from Marie. The way she teaches she connects sounds & letters of several words. It's so helpful her strategy of teaching. Thank you Marie!
Yesenia Garcia
Marie has a unique way of teaching. She makes my daughter have fun while learning arabic. She is an excellent teacher and my daughter always looks forward to her lesson. I highly recommend her!

I had a very good experience during my French lessons with Ms. Marie-Ange. She was very kind and easy to work with. She looks for creative ways to help you memorize new information and makes learning fun. She also makes sure to stay focused and makes teaching plans that best suit your needs. Overall, she was a very good teacher and I benefitted a lot from her lessons.

I believe students learn English faster and more in-depth, when they are having fun.
I enjoy tailoring the exercises and activities to my student's interests and focus on improving their speaking, listening, writing,and reading skills.
There are many approaches and methods out there to teach English. I believe it's beneficial to introduce them all. Not only does this add variety but can help us discover an approach or method that really clicks with the way you learn.
The class is full-immerison, meaning from start to finish we communicate in English. This is the best way to learn English; even if you don't know any English, we will communicate only in English ( don't worry- just as a child learns a language, we will use photos, videos, music and other media to aid in learning. This will make learning English easy)
I am here for you. Whatever goals you have, we can accomplish them together.

I really enjoy taking Accent Reduction with Ms. Jeanne. She has a unique technique to teach English as a second language. I had my first class today and look forward to many more.
Elena Yuryeva
Jeanne is an amazing teacher! I live in US for many years and I always spoke English without difficulty, but I noticed that I have an accent. Finally I decided to take care of that part. After taking a couple of classes that I mispronounced a lot ofbasic words and was unaware of some sounds.
Jeanne is very helpful with understanding the difficulties of your personal mistakes and she is very easygoing, making classes to feel very casual. She helps you to relax and become more confident.
John
Just started my 1st lesson and it's promising.Jeanne doesn't waste a second. As a start she is so attentive to tiny details, focuses on your downsides and targets them. She is like a fun troubleshooting machine. Her follow up videos are so helpful that excutes her notes at the class. I think I will see much improvement soon

"I hired Henry to teach English for my little daughter. The reason i have chose him was he was the only one on the list who accept half hour lessons. I wanted to see şf he is good. I was gonna rşse to one hour if i like. And his hourly rate was reasonable too. We met and he was perfect. After my daughter we have studied with him. He has provided fastest improvement on my special purpose of need. It is really not common to see this passionate teachers around. His academic approach to your need and support with newest material in the maket was excellent. I think he is ahead of others because of his major. A senior jounalist, a TV person... he helped me a lot for my journalism career too... So i definitely can call him An excellent career coach. While i was trying to be on time with my project in Los Angeles, i was the lucky one to meet him through takelessons.com. He gave me what i need only at three weeks. We together focused on my certain project's needs and after i was ready to move alone almost. He is great to teach on bussiness emails, phone conversations, expressing your basic work situation etc.
He is great on accent reduction too. While i wrote this review my concerns is he will see and will find anything to correct... But he also has taught me to be courage enough too... Thank you Henry for everything you have done. I am a freelance foreign journalist in LA. He did his best for me both as a teacher and colleague. And such a good heart... Even if you don't share same opinions on any affair he respect you and try to give his best and more than what you have paid. He is patient too."
