Isabelle makes learning French fun and easy. She is patient, knowledgeable, and is enthusiastic about teaching her native language.

She takes the time to cover grammar, reading comprehension, pronunciation, and spelling in my lessons with her.
Carol L
In my French lessons, Isabelle has worked with me on pronunciation, reading, vocabulary and syntax. Isabelle is always patient and shows a strong command of french and how to convey concepts. I really appreciate & enjoy my lessons with Isabelle.
Kathryn
Just finished my 4th class with Isabelle. She has been very helpful with my French conversation. She meets me at my level and then challenges me. She speaks clearly and at a speed I can understand. The notes after the lesson are excellent and help me to continue my learning. I highly recommend Isabelle!

My background as a teacher of ESL is extensive. I taught technical English to engineering students at the university (MEPhI) for 8 years. Additionally I have been preparing Russian students for the English State Exam at school and adults for business and private trips to English speaking countries.
As a philologist I am able to pinpoint individual issues and difficulties to help correct problems in language acquisition.

I provide a variety of activities so you will never get bored. For example, I will use fun warm up tasks, games, interactive conversational lessons, and quizzes. We will use authentic materials as well. All materials are provided. You will learn conversational skills, formal writing skills, and test taking strategies all in a fun manner.

About Miku

Hi everyone! My name is Miku. I was born in Hawaii and raised in Japan. I graduated from Dokkyo university in Saitama, Japan, and majored in hospitality and tourism. I was a former flight attendant for ANA (All Nippon Airways) living in Tokyo, Japan until I moved back to Hawaii in 2016. I’m now a

Mikuさん is awesome!! Extremely patient and helpful without holding my hand. I’m able to understand sentences better with less than a year of lessons. She’s very professional and prompt. The lessons are always interesting and I actually feel like I’m improving every time (even if it’s just a little at a time). I’m really looking forward to being more conversational in Japanese!!
Cathy
I highly recommend Miku and have recommended her to several friends because lessons with her are extremely fun, engaging, and thorough. I look forward to every single one, and have already learned so much in what seems like a short time--the time flies! She is also incredibly accommodating and makes rescheduling very easy and hassle free. I very much appreciate the time she shares with me as a student in helping me learn the way I do!
Adrienne
Miku is a great teacher to work with! I've been doing weekly lessons with Miku remotely since December of 2019 (now July 2020 as I'm writing this) starting from no experience.  I was worried about my ability to learn a new language since my only experience prior to this was learning Spanish in school years ago, but learning to read and speak Japanese with Miku's guidance has been the right level of challenging and fun.  Miku is a great communicator, flexible, really knowledgeable, adds nuance to the lessons we move through, and also really just fun to talk to and learn from.

Note: Lesson times and days often available by request.

Hello. My name is Linda, and I am an ESL/English teacher for Take Lessons. If you are reading my profile, I'm going to convince you to sign up for lessons with me.

So why sign up with me? First of all, teaching ESL and English is not a job for me. It's a passion. I love doing it. My love of languages started when I was a child. My grandparents escaped from Russia during the Russian Revolution. My father's first language was Russian, and I remember many family dinners when the only language I heard was Russian. My grandparents tried to teach me Russian and told me about the country they had escaped from. This resulted in my curiosity and interest in other countries and other languages.

Unfortunately, I didn't spend enough time with my grandparents to learn Russian, and my father wanted me to learn only English, so when I got older, I learned French in school, and I also learned Turkish when I lived in Turkey and ...

About Linda

Now, I am going to tell you a story which I hope will help you decide to sign up with me. Years ago, when I was studying for my MA degree in English with an emphasis in ESL, I had a very, very boring professor in one of my evening classes. This professor sat in front of the class and talked and ta

Private ESL Teacher

I was born and raised in the United States and have lived in Boston, Washington DC, New York City, and Minneapolis. I earned my undergraduate and PhD degrees from Yale University. I have taught ESL to students of all ages for more than 25 years. I speak English with a neutral American accent (no hint of a regional dialect). As a voiceover artist, I provide narration for TV & radio commercials, audiobooks, video games, and films. I’m able to recognize and target for improvement the specific sounds that cause a non-native speaker’s English accent to sound “foreign.” Our lessons will include not only proper grammar but also advanced vocabulary, use of idioms, and “terms of art” that apply to business, science, technology, travel, academic discourse, and other areas. I also offer unique strategies to prepare students for taking the TOEFL iBT exam. Let's get started!
