I have been teaching English for eight years. I am TEFL certified and a native English speaker. I tailor the curriculum to the student with their own goals in learning English. Each person has their own needs and learning style so I find this works best. I also have lived abroad in France and Switzerland. Je parle francais. Yo hablo espanol.

About Jackie
Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to check out my profile. Just a side note, I DO have a background check just not through the company TakeLessons wants me to use. I have taught elementary and middle school aged children through this website (as well as adults.) I have experience tutoring high school students in Spanish and French as an undergrad in college. I also taught English abroad while I studied in Geneva, Switzerland. I have taught English as a Second Language as a volunteer in the city. This past year I have taught French, Spanish, and English as a Second Language through TakeLessons.

I am TEFL certified and have a B.A. in Political Science - concentration in International Politics, minors in French and Theatre.

Here are some articles I have written featured here on the Take Lessons website -

· Cello · In studio
I am continuing to study cello with Jamie and I am much further along than I anticipated. I also study piano, so I am not a traditional beginner cello student. Jaime is able to fine tune my lessons to take this into account and build on it. He is very knowledgeable about proper technique as well as music theory. I would recommend him without reservation for all abilities and ages.

Jamie worked with me when I was trying to pick up cello after not playing since high school. He is extremely knowledgeable and encouraging. He's very good at identifying problems with technique and suggesting approaches to fix them, and fun to work with.

If your goal is to improve your writing, reading comprehension, vocabulary, or speaking, you can expect me to work hard in seeking the most effective means of accomplishing any or all of those goals with a constant focus on YOUR strengths and areas of weakness. The reason you are looking for one-on-one instruction is probably because the typical approach taken in most institutions has failed to reach you. What you may need is a teacher who will work with your capabilities. You found one!

About Kevin
I have been a teacher for several years in subjects ranging from Music to English. My most recent experience has been with ESL students, which I find to be most fulfilling. I earned a 94th percentile GRE Verbal score and have coached several students in test prep and general writing. As a trained singer, dialects and accents are areas with which I have extensive experience. The mechanics of phonation and speech have been a theme throughout my career and I have developed an acute sensitivity to the intricacies of diction in various languages.

I hope I can be of service to you!

On a personal note, I enjoy long-distance bike rides, classical music (2,500 vinyl LPs in the collection), personal essay writing, movies, and cooking. I love learning and spend almost all of my free time learning about something.

Hi – I can help all aspects of English, including critical reading, persuasive writing, comparative literature, public speaking and ACT/SAT/AP test strategies. I have a Creative Writing MFA, a Communications BS, and write professionally. I've taught and lectured at universities, schools and with individuals around Chicagoland as well as in the Bay Area. I customize study plans with learners and their advocates to utilize existing abilities and add new techniques to reach personal and scholastic goals. My students have said: "she really knows how to get us engaged and how to pique our interest; she teaches and explains aspects of literature well;" "very alert about the world, knows about almost everything;" and “I just wanted to thank you for all of your help and guidance. I was totally lost, a poor reader, and short on time. With your help, I polished my writing skills, became a better reader, and also a better quick-thinker and formulator of thoughts.
