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.

I have taken lessons from Kelly for about a year and a half. I am constantly surprised at the quality of lessons and the detail in homework she provides me. She keeps me motivated when life gets busy and it is hard to find the time. Even though it is my goal to learn Spanish, I feel it is equally her goal to help me succeed. I have tried several methods and having instruction from Kelly ties everything together.

I HIGHLY recommend her if you are interested in learning any area she instructs. You won't be disappointed.

Kelly works with two of our daughters. Josie, who is in kindergarten, has just about completed the Lexia kindergarten curriculum. Josie's teacher is really pleased with her performance in school so far. Elizabeth is in 4th grade and Kelly works with her on Moby mathematics. Elizabeth made the honor role this year with all A's and B's. We could not be more pleased with our children's performance in school. This can be attributed to working with Kelly over the summer and on weekends. Kelly has many user friendly fun resources on-line that allow the children interact with Kelly one on one. I definitely would like to recommend Kelly for tutoring. She is absolutely fantastic!

I help students who are first learning the English language. I'll help you develop your spoken English as well as then help you improve written English. I teach English by immersion - words are not taught out of context. Rather we will have conversations in English. This will help you learn the English syntax as well as the proper use of English words.

Marcel tutored my 6 year old daughter in German. He is very friendly and likable, and she enjoyed working with him right away! He even played "Filly's" with her (a German My Little Pony toy!" He is very patient and makes learning fun. He was punctual and also flexible. We had a great experience working with Marcel!

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!
