Tim K.

Schertz, TX

I received six hours of college credit in English from Trinity University based upon my entrance exam scores. As a substitute teacher I have taught English and Language Arts at all levels from kindergarten through high school. I have tutored students in English and Language Arts at all levels. My daughter was diagnosed with expressive language disorder. I tutored her extensively in English throughout elementary school, middle school, high and college. She graduated from Texas Lutheran University with degrees in Accounting, Finance and Business Administration in 2010.

He was experienced and very caring for my daughter to feel comfortable.
It was a first piano lesson for my 7 year old and she bragged about how she enjoyed the class. I am so glad that we found him!

Tim is an excellent teacher. He is great with my 9 year old daughter in her piano lessons. He is very patient, and quite passionate about music. He takes the time to answer my daughter's many questions, and has helped to further her passion for piano playing. She has been taking lessons with him for almost a year now, and has enjoyed and benefited from every minute. I couldn't ask for a better piano teacher!

This teacher let me 9 year old struggle through piano pieces he hadn't played in month during his first lesson, although I made sure to let him know that my son hadn't played in over half a year. The teacher sat there in silence as my child struggled through the pieces. He didn't give any positive or constructive feedback as my child sat there in silence struggling. He took a phone call during our 30 minute lesson and wrote comments in his notebook, visible to my child such as "rusty" "needs improvement". I was tempted to rescue my son after 15 minutes, but hoped that some instruction would soon take place, it didn't. Not suitable for young children in my opinion. Definitely will not return.

Emphasis on Grammar

Combine subjects for a price break. For example 30 minutes of Math and 45 minutes of English would cost $50 separately, but would cost $45 for 75 minutes of Combined Tutoring. Simply choose ONE subject for the amount of tutoring time desired, and notify me which subjects you'd like to cover.

My daughter's first lesson was "just a trial"... to see if she could handle the instruction. Julie was exceptionally professional and encouraging while navigating constructive criticism (of our sensitive vocalist). Excellent interaction and guidance as well as "Mom to Mom" direction on specific skill-set/practice tools. We're thrilled to have had Julie as our first encounter at "Takelessons.com" - she's an asset to the instructional community and now (if she can put up with us) our family! Thank you Miss Julie. :)

Daniel was the perfect tutor for my son's prep for the GED. He was patient, prepared to help with test taking skills along with the actual content of the tests, and made himself available on a very short notice. In addition, Daniel is just a nice, respectful person that was a pleasure to interact with. I can not say enough. Highly recommend him!

Kelly teaches both our children reading and writing. I can't stress to you enough how much we value her skills as a teacher and a person. My daughter who has ADHD went from F's to A's in a six month period. Amazing, I know. She is patient and engaging and worth her weight in gold!!

Kelly is nice and friendly which makes you feel comfortable right from the start - an important factor for an English speaking lesson. She has several years teaching English abroad so she could easily identify the key areas of improvements for non native speakers. So if you are ESL learners and you want to improve your speaking skills or accent, you should definitely contact Kelly.

Charis C.

Brooklyn, NY

My approach to teaching and coaching language learners comes from decades of teaching New York City students from all over the world, and the fact that my ancestors have been speaking English for over 1,000 years. I also spent my childhood tutoring a younger brother for whom the language arts were difficult, and with great success: he is now a voracious reader and a history scholar who writes every day. Along with teaching, I’m an award-winning, published writer and spent twenty years editing and coaching some of the world’s most respected writers, along with students of all ages. Along with traditional approaches to language teaching, I also incorporate customized counseling methods that give students a confidence in their abilities and an enthusiasm for English that will set them free.

Charis is brilliant. Her marvelous sense of humor, curiosity, and expertise with language, literature and the making of beautiful things, would make learning anything with her a pure delight, as well as a privilege. As it happens, she is a masterful writer, editor and expediter of creative dreams -in a genuinely original, even magical way- every time I see her, I find I've got five new ideas and my sense of reality feels enlivened and enlarged.

My fluency and passionate study of foreign languages has given be a broad understanding and enjoyment of human communication. My experience includes Latin, Italian (standard and dialects), Etruscan, Ancient Greek, Modern Greek, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Polish, Czech, Ukrainian, Bulgarian, Old Norse, Old English, Japanese, Chinese, and Hebrew.

In all cases, I was deeply interested in the forces which shaped these languages and continue to shape them. Whatever your interest in language, I assure you I share it!

Why TakeLessons?

Language Lessons

Learning a new language can be quite challenging for students of any age. Is your son or daughter taking a language in school and finding that it's more difficult than they expected? Luckily, there's no reason for them to struggle through learning a new language. Private language tutoring can help your student get ahead in their language class, even if they've fallen behind their peers.

The Benefits Of Language Tutoring

There are many benefits your child will enjoy right away once they start language tutoring with TakeLessons. The value of one-on-one instruction, especially in a subject like a foreign language, is huge. Your child will have the privilege of learning with a tutor who has a terrific understanding of their foreign language, and who will be able to quiz them and go over words they find difficult over and over again. Our language tutors make learning a new language enjoyable. Your child will be challenged every time they sit down with their tutor, and it won't be long before they stop viewing learning a new language as a chore, and start seeing it as something fun.

What Will You Get With Language Tutoring?

Regardless of what language your son or daughter has chosen to take in school, our tutors are fully equipped to help them. Each language has its own difficulties and it's important to work with a tutor who has complete understanding of the language. Your tutoring will help your child in areas such as vocabulary, verb conjugation, and speaking in their chosen language conversationally.

Language tutoring offers your child advantages that just sitting in a classroom setting cannot. You'll be amazed at how quickly your son or daughter can pick up important language concepts by working with a tutor individually. If your child is struggling with a foreign language, our language tutoring program can put an end to their struggles. We also offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee, flexible scheduling, and a handy online account to manage your schedule and more. For more information, contact us today!
