There is more time available than what is shown on my calendar. Please email me to discuss your preferred time.
I love literature, and I love explaining language and novels. You will truly enjoy your class with me, because I love this subject.
I have been a full time private English instructor since 2008, and I've had my global language training company (over 100 instructors) since 2014. I take on private students here, exclusively with take lessons, because it's important to always be teaching and creating more modern curriculum for real progress in fluency. I know what it takes to get fluent, because I've acquired Spanish, French and Japanese as an adult. I know you can improve and reach your goals just as I have.
I always call clients before the first class to extensively discuss your goals. I have a specific form we full out together for every 3 months of progress. I have researched this, and it's the most effective way to improve.
I work primarily with professionals who need to improve American English language skills and/ or accent for those working in the United
States or working with Americans. Also, I can get English speakers to a high level of fluency in Spanish.
This includes, slang, idioms, phrasal verbs, professional email writing, presentations, American culture, accent/pronunciation and more.
I have created a method, which is a specific way to learn languages, which is the most effective for acquiring a language.
I always use RELEVANT articles to read, TV shows to watch, books to read, radio shows to listen to, in order to incorporate English as much as possible in every aspect of the student's life.
This is how we learn our first language, so why would we try to learn our second language in a different way? Second language researchers have been saying for decades that grammar- focused lessons don't work, yet our schools continue to focus on this. You want to be FLUENT, right? Writing is easy after that.
I have had contracts with Hitachi, NTT Data, Intel, Amazon, Google, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Samsung, Ferrovial, Webber, Bluebonnet, Austin Bridges and Roads, North Tarrant Infrastructure, Trinity, Mary Kay International, and many, many more international companies.
How I teach: I create customized classes for you. I teach you to SPEAK the language. Lessons are dynamic, fun and give you confidence, incorporating things you like: TV, radio, music, movies, current events, and much more.
One-on-one, small groups, company-wide programs, online, in person.
My main focus is usually on conversational English and speech, however we can also focus on reading comprehension, training your auditory skills in listening comprehension, and grammar.
Vandi has extensive performance experience in multiple genres: professionally with opera, orchestra, chamber music, musical theater, straight theater, film, sacred works, church music, jazz, and contemporary music.

Practicing with Vandi improves my skills more quickly than practicing alone and she is very good at not only answering questions via the internet tutoring but through phone as well. She is very prompt and consistent and provides easy to read materials for my skill level. I'm very happy with my purchase through Take Lessons so far. This is my first time using this website and it is my third lesson as I am new to piano. I have already recommended this site to other people.
Experienced teacher and tutor. All ages welcome. Lessons will be customized and catered to your individual needs/goals! Whether it's reading, writing, or grammar - I am here to help you with any and all of your English needs! Let's get started!
I am a professional singer, songwriter, actor, and teacher. I graduated from Coastal Carolina University with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre (with a minor in Spanish)! Originally from North Carolina, I moved to New York City in order to pursue my dream of being an actress! Upon my arrival in New York, I quickly found that I also have an incredible passion for songwriting and teaching. Currently, I am pursuing a career in music and working as a teacher.
If you choose to study voice with me, you can expect to improve your technique weekly using a variety of vocal warm ups and songs. Because every person's voice is just as unique as they are, we will work through your individual strengths and opportunities for growth as well as work towards building up your repertoire - all while helping you gain more and more confidence in you
r vocal abilities!
If you are interested in studying acting with me, you can expect to read lots of plays/musicals, as well as work through a slew of monologues! We can work on material that I find for you or we can work through whatever you need to prepare for your next audition! I can help you find compelling objectives and beats and help bring your character to life!
In my Spanish lessons, you can expect to work through grammar, speaking, reading, and writing. I learned Spanish through an immersive academic program (K-12) and then I minored in Spanish in college so I not only have an understanding of the language from an academic standpoint but I also have been speaking Spanish for nearly the entirety of my life! I have worked with beginner Spanish speakers to native Spanish speakers helping with grammar and writing skills. We will work together to build up your confidence in speaking and understanding Spanish and before you know it, we'll be able to have our lessons fully in Spanish!
I am looking forward to meeting you and working with you soon!!
I love communicating with people of any age and helping them communicate in English - and expression - and making it fun. As well as teaching high school English - I have a passion for English Literature and Drama and have also taught those for many years - I have produced numerous dramatic productions for children and adults in schools and dramatic societies. I can help anyone - in any profession - gain confidence and ability in English. I also enjoy teaching acting (drama). Lessons are all individually geared to the needs of the student. I hold a BA degree in English and Speech & Drama. (I am also a photographer and videographer - and enjoy sharing these passions as well.)
I enjoy people! I come from South Africa where I taught English and Speech & Drama - high school level and produced plays and shows for schools and dramatic societies for several years. I started and ran a photographic club at school. My passion and ability for photography landed me a job at a large Performing Arts Council where I covered dance of all kinds, drama, opera and music and beyond! Since working in the US. as a photographer and videographer, I have among my clients The Juilliard School, Lincoln Center, The New York Times, Carnegie Hall and many more... I have traveled all over the world and have a deep appreciation of and interest in the culture of all peoples. I love spontaneity and open to different ways of learning. My work has been widely published in books and other - and online.
I'm a certified ESL-teacher and know exactly what it takes to create a lesson, according the students' needs and for them to profit most. We build up on strengths and work on the weaknesses.
Hi everyone! My name is Eva and I'm very passionate about teaching and helping each other become better versions of ourselves.
I'm a certified ESL-Teacher and am trying to enable all ages and levels a chance to increase their English and German skills with the comfort of their home and their own availabilities. As a flexible person, I teach each lesson individually tailored to the students' needs. I like to use many different resources and have various different materials suiting every style of learning.
Outdoing, positive, social and full of laughter are words my friends would describe me with.
I love teaching, I love speaking English and I love getting to know people from all parts of the world. I believe, I can all teach each other something, because everyone is good in something. For my I've found, it's teaching English.
It's important for me to build a friendly relationship between my students and me. I think, that's a key of learning. Seeing it more as a valuable get-together and holding a purposeful conversation.
Those of you, who are interested in learning German from a Native with teaching background or improving their English in this exact way, should reach out to me and I'm telling you, we'll have fun and educational lessons.
I have taught English for about 10 years. Most recently, I began teaching online English to children (and adults) all over the world. I can help your child learn basic English by way of flashcards, immersion, and picture cards. Let's begin our journey today!
I am a patient, caring, and motivated teacher and life-coach! I am looking forward to meeting you and helping you learn English. I believe you can do ANYTHING if you work hard enough!
I am very patient and do not have a problem with explaining words, alphabets, myself over and over again. I will try different ways of teaching you and we can both figure out what works best helping you get the results you would like to have. I know that not everyone is the same and every one has their own way of learning. I'll make sure to adapt your way in our lessons and if you do not know your way we can figure that out together. These lessons are about you and for you and I'll make sure to personalize them.
