How's it hanging? Before we talk about me, what about you? If you say "Yes" to any of the following questions, then you've come to the right place!

1. Does communicating in English "throw you for a loop", sometimes?
2. Do you find yourself understanding English conversations "Clear as mud", periodically?
3. Are you pursuing a degree in a North American school and Academic English vs Conversational English makes you "scratch your head", at times?
4. Do your professional goals require your English to be "on another level", all the time?

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

I'm Abu. I graduated from Addis Ababa University with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in and from Portland Community College in Health Informatics. In college, I realized the classes I appreciated the most we're not necessarily the topics I was most interested in. Rather, it was the professors who made the classes enjoyable. These Professors are always engaging and comprehensible when teaching the materials in the classroom, and willing to go the extra mile when asking for additional help for clarification. I tried to bring this knowledge to my teaching approach, do everything I can and make learning a pleasant experience. Use lesson plans in which they usually introduce a topic in a fun and creative way, then explicitly teach the material. Afterward, I always ensure time for students to practice the material on their own. Of course, this method can be adjusted based on the subject and the student's individual needs.

I have a year of tutoring experience in a Science classroom. I ...

About Abu

Unlike many other careers, I enjoy caring for others. My interest in teaching began back in 2008 while I was at work for a completely different purpose. This brief work experience I had some 8 years ago when I was back in Ethiopia, though I wasn’t even an academic professional at the time, except

ESL Learners: Are You Making These 21 Common Mistakes?

There are certainly some tricky words in the English language! And sometimes, people who have learned English as a second language mix up these words. Want to avoid making the same mistakes? Here are the words ESL learners misuse the most. Them, Those, and These "Them" is a pronoun that stands in the place of a plural noun. It is commonly used as the subject of a sentence, as in: Did you see them? or Have you seen the scissors? I used them to cut the labels off my T-shirts; now I can’t fin …

In the United States, you’ll certainly come across your fair share of English expressions, idioms, and proverbs. Some of the most common expressions in English sound profound, while others sound silly and darn right outlandish. While they can seem strange at first, especially if you consider their literal meanings, you’ll soon find that they play a big role in the English language.  Although English idioms don’t make sense at first, these unique expressions (together with proverbs) …
