As a second language, or as your first, this language can be confusing and complicated at times. I speak Spanish as my second language, and I've studied English in college. As a writer, I feel I have a firm grasp on this language and also find teaching it to be extremely fun.

About Olivia
I love to create. The way I'm most comfortable creating is through writing; whether it's a song, a short story, a poem or a script. Writing has always been the bass line in my life; the heartbeat.

Music and film are both passions of mine. I graduated from Berklee College of Music where I studied Songwriting and Music Therapy. I was pushed to my absolute limits lyrically and musically within these majors, and I am so grateful for it now that I'm on my own creative journey.

I have a great deal of experience, but I am also still learning. I think it is very important as a teacher to always be learning, especially through their students. Teaching these lessons is, of course, about progress and advancement - but also about enjoyment, confidence building and positive encouragement.

Awesome

Finding Olivia was no coincidence.My 11 year old daughter is so psyched when she has her lessons!
It is in Liv's home,just a 10 minute ride from where we live,it's warm,safe,and filled with talent.
The passion of music is everywhere you look,Daphne and Olivia are
Ike old souls that just jive together perfectly.
Daphne has gained confidence,a mentor,and a ton of fun,
I thought Daphne was on a short lived path,as kids often jump from one idea to the next,but I believe singing is something she will definitely peruse.
I am so pleased with Take Lessons and especially Olivia.

West Columbia, SC
View Full Profile

I have been teaching English for three years. I have a TEFL teaching certificate and over 200 hours of classroom experience. I have taught English in private and group settings. I can teach to children and adults.

About Christopher
Hello! Hola! Benvenuto! My name is Christopher S. and I am a classical guitarist, composer, polyglot, and experienced language and music teacher.

I am a recent graduate with a Masters of Music degree from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA. There I studied with the world-renowned guitarist Eliot Fisk who is a direct student of the legendary guitarist Andres Segovia.

Currently I work part time teaching 12 students guitar at the University of South Carolina, in Columbia. I also I teach ukulele, Spanish, Italian, and English to a variety of students online. At the same time I am pursuing a Doctoral degree from the university to strengthen my skills as a guitarist and expand my knowledge as a teacher for higher education. I have also just completed my debut album titled, "Anima - The Music of Spain and Italy for the Gu
itar."

This album is a tribute and memorial to an amazing journey I had traveling and living in Europe for 3 years.

After I graduated from my undergraduate degree, I realized that in order to better my skills as a musician and become the guitar teacher I wanted to be I had to travel abroad. I moved to Seville, Spain where for three years I studied the art of classical and flamenco guitar.

I studied with a international known Spanish guitarist named Francisco Bernier at the Conservatory in Seville. During this time I was also teaching English as a second language to high school and middle school students. From traveling and spending so much time in Europe, I also developed and studied my love of languages and I became fluent in Spanish and Italian.

The experienced was an experience of a lifetime and I made many friends working and living abroad that to this day, I still keep in contact with.

If you are interested in having lessons with me, please contact me and we can begin learning the art of making beautiful music or learning the beautiful languages of the Mediterranean! "Hasta pronto!" "A presto!" and "Speak to you soon!"

I taught English for 5 years. My students were Chinese-American kids and Chinese new adult immigrants. Besides the textbook, worksheet,I also used English cartoon movies, English songs. role play, English salon activities, English practical conversation to help my students with their English study.

About Sandy
Having taught Chinese Language Skills in the private sector, primary, secondary and college institutions for a number of years in China, has not only given me great confidence to teach in a classroom setting, but has inherently brought an instructor comfort that feels natural to me.
In addition, finding an opportunity where I can assist the kids, middle school and high school students and adults who love to learn Chinese college staff while maintaining my teaching proficiency in traditional or simplified Chinese characters is both welcome and rewarding to me.

I'm certain that my rich knowledge and years of experience in classroom practical application of Chinese Curriculum / Culture coupled with my love to teach make me a professional, responsible and patient teacher.

In addition, I can teach you Chinese in your location which
is no more than 10 miles away from Vista where I live. I can also teach you how to play badminton and cook delicious authentic Chinese food.

Ms. Qi is a very accessible and diligent teacher. My son can be difficult, but she found ways to quickly connect with him and get him to open up. She accommodated his need for assistance with his regular work, but encouraged us to "start again" with Chinese which is probably a good idea. Very much appreciate her experience and enthusiasm.

Whether you're looking to improve your communication skills through writing and/or speaking, I'm here to help.

Pronouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, interjections; these are the puzzle pieces that make up a language. They are called parts of speech.

If you utilize the parts of speech correctly, they can dramatically transform the way you communicate.

"No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world." -John Keating

Now let's articulate your ideas into words.

About Alli
ABOUT ME:

I'm a TESOL-Certified English teacher, language enthusiast and grammar nerd.
I speak proficient Spanish and Portuguese, therefore, native Spanish or Portuguese speakers will benefit greatly by taking lessons with me.

I'm comfortable teaching all ages. Although, I specialize in teaching adults. Especially adults wanting to improve their English for business-related purposes.

About Soo
Learning a language should be fun and enjoyable. I use methods that employees all senses which help you to learn more and to remember longer. I was born in Korea and learned English as living in the US. I'm currently learning Mandarin Chinese as well, so I can relate to those who are learning a new language. My previous work experience includes translation and interpretation at a Korean manufacturing company. Each lesson is customized based on your need; business English, conversational/free-talking, improving pronunciation or preparing interviews. I can help students of all ages, from children to adults for all levels of both English and Korean. Please feel free to let me know what your focus is or what you would like to improve. If you don't see an opening for a lesson, feel free to contact me and we can discuss.
I don't claim to know e
verything - language learning is a life-long process. But I can certainly help you to build the โ€‹love of learning a new language!
