Whether you need copy-editing of your professional document, better pronunciation, or simply to reduce your accent, and sound more 'American', I am well able to help you!

About Stephanie
I am a career musician, and conservatory trained violin, piano and vocal instructor with over 25 years teaching experience, and a resume spanning many pages. I also am a well endorsed composer. Furthermore, I LOVE teaching! I am a competition judge, member of National Music Teachers Association, and Suzuki Association of the Americas. I have proven results, as documented on my students YouTube channel. With my instruction, you will learn quickly and most importantly, correctly, saving you time and resources as you reach your musical goals. Fact: One of the only activities that activates, stimulates, and uses the entire brain is music, so let's get started!

Some people have difficulty reaching a teachers' studio. For this reason, I have perfected my ability to teach via Skype or FaceTime. It is an advantage for my students to b
e instructed by a quality teacher. It's worth a try, isn't it?

Please note: I only accept weekly lesson students. Also, due to my performances, I'm not always able to this calendar up to date....so when you request a lesson time, allow me to communicate with you, if we need to adjust it a bit. It almost always works out if you don't mind doing that.

*** Lesson Details ***
All the students on my Student YouTube channel who have studied under three years, are practicing 2 hours a week, and you will have a similar result. That's 20 minutes a day, 6 days a week. Students under 5 practice about 10-15 minutes a day.

Please have an assignment book that lies flat, and keep it next to your music books as you practice between lessons. My instructions are very detailed to insure your best progress.

*** Studio Equipment ***
For on-line lessons, you will need a quiet place, and please test your sound and video prior to beginning of lesson. For students under 13 or so, do have a parent or caregiver taking notes while we work together.

*** Specialties ***
I have much experience with various learning styles, and in fact, am featured in a documentary made of one of my autistic students.

I began taking on line Organ lessons with Stephanie in July of 2016. She is an excellent instructor. She makes you want to learn and do your best. She is very patient and explains things very well. She asks that you practice 20 minutes a day. Since she inspires you to improve and do your best, it is easy to practice longer than requested. She has brought joy back into my life through music. I am very grateful.

San Francisco, CA

I have taught English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) in Germany, Greece, and Turkey, and English as a Second Language (ESL) in California. In Germany, where I lived and worked for many years, I too had to learn a second language as a beginner to the level where I could function and work in a new society. So I teach from a student's point of view, understanding and sensitive to both the practical and emotional challenges you face.

About Laurel
As a teacher I recognize that all students have a predominant learning style, so I always work with each person as an individual, tailoring our lessons to discover and promote their innate abilities and interests. I am friendly and patient and work well with children of all ages as well as adults.

My background in English language training is extensive. I have a B.A. in English Literature, Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certification, along with ten years teaching experience in Europe and the Middle East. I also hold a M.Sc. in Biological Science.

My area of special expertise is writing, I can help anyone master the skill of expressing themselves effectively. I love grammar and can make it fun and easy to learn. I have developed curriculum and adapted existing teaching materials to fit students special needs.

Th
ese are areas of language training in which I excel:
• Grammar
• Reading Literacy (for both native speakers and ESL learners)
• Business and Vocational English
• Creative and Expository Writing
• English Conversation
• Exam Preparation
• Editing and Proofreading

· Creative Writing · Online
I took a series of online creative writing lessons with Mrs. Taylor. She is one of the kindest and most intelligent persons I have worked with. She helped me find my writing style and patiently and carefully taught me about every aspect of creative writing. She told me not only about grammar and story structure, but also motivated and encouraged me to write a short story. From my first lesson with her, I knew that she is a gifted teacher, as she is knowledgeable and informed. Before taking lessons with her, I was writing in my journal, but now I have written my first piece. She provided meaningful and relevant ideas to help me find the flow of my story. Because of the excellent and exceptional way that she teaches, I have decided to continue with my creative writing.

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 -

Largo, FL

You can expect to improve your English fluency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. You can also expect to reduce your accent so that others can understand you better!
I hold a Master of Education degree specializing in Secondary Bilingual/ESL Education, in addition to a Bachelor of Arts degree in English. I also hold a Florida Professional Educator's Certification in ESOL (K-12) and English (grades 6-12). Additionally, I have over 16 years' of experience teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) and English as a Foreign Language (EFL) to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) (including adults) in the US, Japan, China, and Ecuador.

About Sara
As a seasoned educator, I know that the recipe for successful one-on-one learning is simple. It has only two main ingredients: your (or your child's) desire to learn, and the expertise I bring from 16 years of experience as a classroom teacher and tutor. When you combine them over the course one or more hours of tutoring, the result is a more confident, skilled, and knowledgeable learner who has achieved or made measurable progress towards his or her goals. The positive, friendly and colleagial relationship you will have with your tutor (me) is just the sweet icing on the cake!

About Yang
I am a native Chinese language speaker and also a current nursing student at College of DuPage. I love volunteering and interpretation for all kinds of people. Here, I'd love to help others to understand the language I usually speak. If I can do some specific subjects, I would like to help students to understand the material for mathematical and psychological statistics, sociology, psychology: Life Spin, Humanities, and Chinese and French history. Actually, I don't have any experience for teaching Chinese Mandarin. However, I have 2-yrs experience for teaching kids art design at my weekend school. I will start to teach humanities class there this year.

Experience, enthusiasm, and expertise describe me as a teacher. In addition to my training in Linguistics, Translation, Intercultural Communication and TESOL, I bring to the table 17 years of experience teaching English in a variety of contexts to a variety of students. I have taught middle and high school students craving attention and fun, business professionals striving for promotion, college students aspiring to study abroad, and PhDs polishing their communication skills. I will not overwhelm you with lots of talk and information; I will make YOU the center of each session. Regardless of the skills you want to practice (no kongfu though :)), I will do my best to accommodate your needs. As a person, I am efficient but friendly, serious but humorous, a challenger but an encourager. And, I look forward to working with you.

About Elena
As a current teacher at an intensive English program in Georgia, USA, I have taught grammar, reading, writing, listening, and speaking to students raging from 18 to 60 years old. Most of my current students are preparing to apply to colleges in English-speaking countries or are improving their English to be better qualified for professional growth. Due to the nature of what I am doing now, I am very comfortable working with students who have academic and professional goals such preparation for TOEFL or IELTS, practice for business presentations, or technical writing. However, I am also pretty comfortable working on more general goals such as daily conversation, US culture, reading for content, etc.

Here is my philosophy of teaching in a very very brief form: I am a big believer in needs analysis and diagnostic. Before any goals are s
et, it is imperative to understand students' backgrounds, aspirations for the future, and proficiency levels. Additionally, I believe that setting tangible goals drives improvement and increases motivation. Finally, feedback, feedback, feedback! Intonation or vocabulary usage, personalized and specific feedback is what my students get and love.

As far as methodology goes, I am pretty eclectic. Again, methods and approaches are chosen based on students' needs. Sometimes we just have to work on drilling sounds and intonation or some simple grammar concepts like “do/does”, while at other times open conversation is the best way to practice the same content. One key component that doesn’t change is the focus on the student. I work hard on planning my lessons so that my students do most of the work during class. I also strive to contextualize everything around real life by choosing materials that are recent and relevant.

Broomfield, CO

View Full Profile

I am a native English speaker and able to help with reading, reading comprehension, writing and grammar.

About Ulyana
My name is Ulyana and I'm passionate about teaching and tutoring! I graduated with a B.S. from Rice University (Houston, TX), specializing in earth sciences. During my years there, I traveled quite a bit - including to Antarctica! - and took part in many science outreach activities with young students. While doing a Masters in planetary geoscience at Brown University (Providence, RI), I gained field experience in Iceland and used it as a research analog to past climate conditions on Mars. For my PhD, I trekked over 1500 miles in Nepal, studying glacial lake flooding hazards to Sherpa villages, as well as impacts of pollution on pristine high mountains, including Mt. Everest.

For seven years now, I have either tutored or taught, in classrooms and in the field, all age groups, sharing the joy of science, math - and learning in general! Mos
t recently I worked for National Geographic Student Expeditions, a program for high school students interested in learning photography, film, and field (outdoor) science. During the springtime, I am a visiting professor at Colorado College, teaching at the undergraduate level. My day job includes running my company, Science in the Wild, which gets kids and adults alike outside, learning and doing science around the world while on expedition. Our most recent was to the top of Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa.

When I was in my teens, I participated in many science fairs and symposia at the national and international level. Then I went to college and grad school in science. Pretty much, science has been my life! For any of your science needs, with a special focus on astronomy and geology (earth sciences), I'm here to help. I can also assist with physics, biology and chemistry. The sciences are interrelated and I've used them all in the past and in my current work. The same goes for math.

If you're interested in creative lessons - with a true focus on your learning experience, I'm your tutor! Often times when working out in the field in extreme locations (e.g., Antarctica and Mt. Everest), I have to MacGyver solutions on the fly. I want to teach you how to think. This skill will serve you well, long into the future.

I had a wonderful time learning with Adriana before my recent trip to Italy. It was my first time, and I thought it would be nice to know some useful phrases before I went. Not only is Adriana an excellent teacher of the Italian language (I was only able to just tap into her expertise given the little time I gave us before my trip), but she also has extensive knowledge of Italian culture. My time in Italy was so much more meaningful thanks to our lessons. I can't recommend her highly enough! Buon divertimento!
