I taught in Huntington Hills Elementary school (grade 2) and Jennie Elliott school (grade 3) I tutored 7 students (from Grade 3-Grade 7) I am working towards a TESL designation to teach ESL. Learning English requires practice, consistency, and accountability. The easiest way to learn English is using visual modes (pictures and videos). As an English as a second language learner, it is fine to read the text and then translate it into your first language. The minimum duration to master English is one year but still, it differed from person to person. I look forward to assisting you and having fun learning together

(Available for ONLINE classes for Singapore, Hong Kong, and Taiwan) I'm a CELTA qualified writing tutor specialising in writing for middle-schoolers. Children love to tell stories. One of the best ways to develop writing is to write stories. If you want your child to excel at grade level or if your child is not reaching grade level, reach out to me to talk. My passion is to see the light in a student's eyes when suddenly they understand. I will encourage, push and spur your child on to success. I can teach online in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan, and in-person in Calgary My family moved to the UK from Hong Kong when I was 5 years old. So I understand how it feels to not understand the language. But 3 years later, I was excelling in my grade level. I am CELTA qualified and have taught English as a Second Language (ESL) for over 25 years to children and adults in India, England, and Canada. Currently, I specialize in improving writing for middle school ESL students, teaching creative, expository, and persuasive writing.

I am Tobi, a lawyer, and creative content writer. Learning English can be tasking, hence, my dedication to helping new learners navigate the system. I worked as a lawyer for over 3 years and I have recently navigated into creative content writing. Learning English can be as simple as ABC and may be as cumbersome as solving a mathematical equation however, with the right guidance, you too can be a master of the language. The easiest way to learn English is by reading several materials eg. novels, magazines, newspapers, etc, and also communicating with others. Depending on your proficiency level, learning English may take a few months.

TUTOROO is a website that connects you with private, in-person language tutors. We now work with 165,000 tutors in more than 150 cities. We match genuine native speakers with people who want to enhance their conversational skills in any language at their preferred place and time.
The most difficult part in learning a foreign language is the practice, which can be acquired only by conversing with a native speaker. For people willing to practice foreign languages, it is difficult to find a private language tutor who lives or works in their city. TUTOROO has been designed to provide a frictionless experience while connecting tutors to students, for private in-person language lessons.
"I've studied with a native tutor for two months because I'm traveling this week. These classes helped me a lot! I loved TUTOROO and am already recommending it to my friends."
- Mark Bariche
"I found the perfect tutor for me, I became able to speak in another language and enjoyed meeting new people from other cultures. I've improved my language skills, without traveling abroad. Thanks TUTOROO!"
"Speaking in another language is no longer difficult with the help of a teacher. Getting corrections for your mistakes helps you continue to improve in each lesson."
TUTOROO works with a community of over 4,500 private English teachers in more than 150 cities. Our English tutors help their students improve their English skills by providing them with personalised online and in-person lessons. The internet is full of helpful resources for non-native English speakers to learn English, with materials for all levels in order to improve one's vocabulary or English grammar. So why would you need to hire a private English teacher to learn English?
First, private English tutors are able to meet specific English learning needs that static online resources may not always provide. With one-on-one English lessons, you can easily progress towards English language fluency. Students can choose to focus their lessons on grammar exercises, vocabulary, pronunciation, writing, reading comprehension, speaking practice, and more.
Below are some of the benefits of learning English with an English teacher with TUTOROO:
One-on-one English tuition with a private English teacher allows you to have the undivided attention you deserve. Private English classes are customised to your learning goals and your rhythm. Perhaps you are interested specifically in business English, conversational English, or private lessons for your kids - an English tutor can customise your English lessons to meet your needs and help you improve your skills thanks to real-world lessons from a native speaker.
When you learn English with a TUTOROO tutor, you get direct answers to all of your questions, this helps you improve your language skills faster in areas you struggle with, from pronunciation and vocabulary to other grammar issues. A private English teacher can immediately identify your mistakes and correct your inaccuracies. You get to ask direct questions when things aren't clear and obtain immediate answers from them.
For example, for non-native English speakers, the English language can sometimes be contradictory. For example, the ‘ch' in ‘chair' is pronounced differently from the ‘ch' in ‘chiffon'. The ‘th' in ‘thumb' is pronounced differently from the ‘th' in ‘that'. A private English teacher can help you avoid these common pitfalls to achieve English language success and gain strong English communication skills.
In a nutshell, learning English with a TUTOROO tutor is much more fun and interesting than just watching online videos or learning online through tutorials. You may now improve your English skills with our online and in-person private tutors. We actually help students from around the world improve their English skills.

English is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, it is also used as a second language by millions of people around the globe. English has been used as an international language since the 17th century.
The English Language is recognised as the official language in about 67 different countries. Additionally, more than 27 non-sovereign entities regularly use English as an administrative or conversational language. It is the official language of many world institutions like NATO, the European Union and the United Nations. Close to a third of the world's population (some 2 billion people) now use English, giving it the position of a global lingua franca.
With TUTOROO you may now learn English with a private English teacher in the following locations:
The English Language is regarded as one of the most difficult languages to learn for non-native English speakers. Its grammatical rules are often broken, spelling and pronunciation irregularities can even confuse native speakers. With the help of a private English teacher, you can overcome the difficulties of the English language and achieve full English language fluency. Improve your English skills now with an English tutor.
As a non-native English speaker, many higher education schools or universities where English is the standard language of teaching will require you to take an English proficiency test. This test is proof of your English language ability and ensures you have the necessary oral, aural and writing skills to complete your course. Don't let a language barrier stop you from achieving your dreams. Hire a private English language teacher to help you prepare for your English proficiency test.
The two most common tests are the TOEFL or IELTS:
TOEFL (The Test of English as a Foreign Language) is the most common English proficiency test. There are two formats for writing TOEFL and you can choose your preferred format: an internet-based test or a paper-delivered test. The sections in the test include listening comprehension, written expression, reading comprehension and speaking. The test takes about 3 hours to complete and the result is valid for two years. Most universities require that you score between 90 to 100 (B2). However, some universities may require that you attain a minimum score in each section while meeting the B2 proficiency requirement.
IELTS (The International English Language Testing System) is another widely recognised English proficiency test. The test has two versions which are the academic version and the general training version. Most employers and universities worldwide accept the academic version, while the general training version is accepted by government institutions and used for immigration.
The first 3 sections of the IELTS - listening, reading and writing - lasts 2 hours 40 mins. The last component is a speaking test done in the presence of an examiner. IELTS scores range between 1 and 9 with universities requiring a minimum of 6 or 7. The minimum score is equivalent to C1 and B2 proficiency levels. You can get your IELTS results 13 days after the test and the result is valid for two years.
Although not as common as IELTS or TOEFL, CAE (Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English) and CPE (Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English) are often an admission requirement for UK universities. Usually, only people at an advanced English level can take CAE and CPE. They are in-depth, high-level qualifications that demonstrate an English proficiency level of C1 - 7 to 8 in IELTS or 110 to 120 in TOEFL. You can take CAE and CPE either on your computer or in person. Like the other tests, the CAE and CPE tests reading, writing, listening and speaking. The speaking section of the test will be done with another candidate to test fluency in face-to-face situations. Unlike TOEFL and IELTS, CAE and CPE certificates don't expire. The highest grade is an A and the lowest score in CAE and CPE is C, with most universities requiring a minimum of B for admission.
TUTOROO works with many English tutors who are available and specialised in training for some of these tests.
