I have 10 years of experience tutoring english and math for standardized exams (SAT/ACT/GRE) test preparation, as well as helping new English speakers improve their vocabulary and conversational/writing skills.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have. However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. Or maybe the teacher/professor is not the best

First lesson. Too soon to tell. Not what I was expecting, but I had nothing on which to base any expectation. I will trust the process.

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
