Hi. I am Chris and I’m a qualified and experienced teacher of English as a foreign language and a native speaker of British English. I have taken more than 6000 lessons online and have many regular students. I am very patient and passionate about the English language. My relaxed lesson style will boost your confidence, make you feel less nervous and enable you to improve your English skills by helping you sound more natural.
My lessons will help you achieve your goal of being fluent, reaching proficiency level, reducing your accent, sounding more natural and improving your vocabulary through stimulating conversation on a wide range of topics. Exam technique is as important as ability when taking IELTS or Cambridge exams, I can help you raise your score. My lesson style is relaxed and informal, I will help you feel more confident and less nervous when speaking. I allow students to speak as much as possible but I also listen very attentively for grammar and pronunciation errors and will help you to reduce mistakes through clear explanation and example sentences.
I am flexible about the content of the lessons and try to structure them according to YOUR needs. I will initially assess your level, and focus on reducing weaknesses so that you can see a clear improvement in your level and self confidence. Technique is vital to pass standard exams like IELTS and Cambridge. We will practise technique together and I will give feedback on your answers and offer suggestions on attaining a higher test score. I look forward to working with you soon!See Reviews From Students
Hello everyone and welcome to my profile! My name is Leon and I'm here to teach you English. I myself am a polyglot and so I have been through the journey of learning a foreign language many times. In addition to English, I also know French, Spanish, Russian, Arabic, Persian, Turkish and Armenian, and currently learning German and Georgian. If you know one of those languages, I will be happy to explain things in your language from time to time.
Whenever students ask me about the secret to how I have learnt so many languages, I remind them of how they themselves learnt their native tongue as a child. The fact is that there is no secret recipe - humans are born with the capacity to learn any human language that exists. The difference now, once an individual has grown up, is that one feels "scared" to make mistakes, unlike a child, and that an adult also has "less time" to prioritise language learning/acquisition, because of other responsibilities.
I support my students in learning English in accordance with their own preferences. Whether it is a grammar-focused approach, a preference for language immersion or task-based learning, we will discuss the approach that suits your language learning needs most.See Reviews From Students
Hi! I’m Sue and I live in beautiful South Africa.
I’m a TEFL certified English teacher and I specialise in business English, conversational fluency and pronunciation.
I’ve taught hundreds of students – just like you – from beginners to advanced.
I’m a fun and patient teacher and my classroom is a relaxed, safe space where it’s okay to make lots of mistakes, because that is how you learn.
Our trial lesson will be mostly conversational, where we’ll talk about your English goals and what you want to achieve. Then, I’ll create a tailored learning plan for you. We’ll focus on YOUR unique learning needs, and I’ll work with you to help you achieve your goals.
Learning happens in a fun and positive environment and when we experience language in different ways. I like to use a variety of learning methods: videos, podcasts, interesting texts, role-plays, real-life conversations and simulations. There’ll be lots of opportunities to practice – to build your speaking skills and your confidence. I’ll teach you tips and techniques that you can use, and I’ll give you practical tools to help you improve your English fluency.
I believe in patient correction and constructive feedback – so that you know what you’re doing well, and areas you should work on.
I learn Italian in my spare time, so I really understand the challenges and frustrations that come with learning a language!
I can help you speak naturally, sound professional, and feel confident.
So, book a trial session with me and let’s get you started!See Reviews From Students
My name is Mark, I'm TEFL- certified and I specialize in creating a comfortable and fun English learning environment.
I have been helping adults ( ages 18 +) online for over 10 years, during which time, I have also studied Spanish, Russian and Chinese.
I understand the difficulties of learning a new language and attempt to address these issues directly in my sessions.
I believe that learning is a by-product of good teaching.
I understand that teaching is not 1 method for all situations, and requires adjusting and variety throughout the process.
I want to offer fun and excitement to the learning environment and process. Helping you become a confident and fluid speaker, requires consistency of instruction along with diligence in practice. Together we can create an amazing learning environment that will allow you to achieve your learning goals.
I can assist you with TOEFL, IELTS, CELPIP, LSAT, SAT, PTE, and other EXAM preps. I'm able to help you simply focus on conversational English, expressing yourself in everyday situations. The formal language of business English can be difficult terrain to traverse, but I can guide you through the process. Many students have just wanted to improve grammar and vocabulary, session work along with between session work (homework). We can tackle consistency and fluency.
Feel free to have a trial lesson to see how I can help you be the English speaker you want to become,See Reviews From Students
Hi, I’m Sean. Teacher, climber, surfer, and traveller.
If you want to improve your fluency and confidence in general or business English, I’m here to help.

I have run three businesses and spent most of my career as a manager and consultant. I now teach general and business English in schools, and privately to national businesses in Spain.
My classes provide structure using the latest course books and are adapted to your personal needs and interests to make each class relevant and memorable. I will give you feedback and suggestions every lesson and provide materials to help you revise and retain what you have learned.
I have a friendly and relaxed approach to teaching. My lessons are fun, engaging, and inclusive.

Hi, I’m Rob, an English teacher from Canada currently living in Prague, Czech Republic, with 20 years of ESL and university teaching experience. I work with intermediate to advanced students (B1-C2), with most of my students interested in conversation/communication English (focusing on speaking and listening skills, including fluency, vocabulary, pronunciation and intonation, and grammar), but I’m also happy to work with students on writing and reading.
My teaching style is relaxed, friendly, and engaging—I try to make every lesson an interesting and enjoyable one. But I’m also professional, prepared, organized, and reliable. I rarely use a textbook—some students mainly enjoy having conversation, but I also often use videos and texts of various kinds and even songs to provide a wide variety of topics, new vocabulary, varieties of listening practice, etc., and lessons are individually designed to each student’s level, interests, and requirements.
I’ve taught English in Vietnam and Czech Republic since 2016 and also have 12 years of Canadian university teaching experience in cultural history and in architecture/design. I’m also a writer-artist-designer. I received a professional architecture degree in 1989 and the Trinity College Level 5 English teaching certification in 2019. I’m a native English speaker with an easy-to-understand neutral Canadian accent.
For the last 2 years, most of my English teaching has been online, though I also enjoy teaching non-virtually. I primarily use and recommend the Zoom platform for online teaching for its reliability, video/sound quality, and support for varieties of teaching resources. Students can use Zoom from their browser or by downloading the app on their desktop or phone/tablet (though laptop is recommended).
So, if this sounds like what you’re looking for, I invite you to sign up for a trial lesson with me, and we’ll take it from there …See Reviews From Students
If you are preparing to take a specific exam, I can help you work on any problem areas. I specialise in intensive intermediate and advanced courses, 'Prépa', and translation from French into English, but I’m also happy to help you simply improve your spoken English or anything else you may wish to work on…
Hello, I’m Peter from Gloucestershire in England. I have a neutral British accent (also known as ‘Received Pronunciation’ or BBC English). I have a TEFL certificate and tutored at a very prestigious Language School in Oxford over a period of 13 years. The wonderful thing about about tutoring is that I can focus on each individual student; I can teach you exactly what you, in particular, need. I can help you with your speaking, your reading and comprehension, and your writing. I can concentrate on any gaps or problems you have in grammar or vocabulary - all in a very practical way, at a level that is suited to you, and based on your unique learning style. Whatever your language goals I will support you to achieve them with patience and encouragement.
I have always loved languages; I went to school in France for a few years, spent a year at ‘La Sorbonne’ in Paris and lived in a French speaking country for many years. I also spent a while at a school near Heidelberg in Germany. I graduated from Cambridge University with a BA and MA in Modern Languages. After my degree I started learning Italian. Recently I began learning Spanish. All of this experience and education means that I really do know what it’s like to learn another language and culture from a student’s point of view - all of the joys, and the challenges!!
The way I teach will always depend on the individual student. I would love to have the opportunity to build a course especially for you, using all my experience and knowledge to help you achieve your linguistic aspirations. If this sounds like the sort of thing you are looking for, please do book a lesson with me - I look forward to meeting you!

I’m taking a year out to go travelling, and have recently moved to Seville in Spain where I'm volunteering as a teacher in a Bilingual academy. For almost a year, I’ve been tutoring students aged 11-18. These have ranged from pupils preparing for curriculum exams, to learning English as their second language.
I have always made sure to be sympathetic to students' situations, and am flexible with lesson lengths and times. I make every effort to accommodate your needs and targets as a student, to ensure we approach the lesson in a way that works best for you. My aim is to facilitate your learning development with interactive lessons that you can fit into your schedule, without making you feel overloaded.

These include: Business English for a workplace setting, conversational English, grammar and preparing for curriculum exams, to name just a few.
During lessons, lots of speaking is key, as I thrive on being able to build a good relationship with my students. I’m young and enthusiastic, and always welcome questions. If this approach to learning feels like it could work for you, or you’d like to discuss your objectives in more detail, please feel free to book a trial session. I look forward to meeting you.See Reviews From Students

We’re confident you’ll love learning via LanguaTalk. We're trusted by students all over the world because we're transparent. We ask students to rate each lesson, and we display reviews on tutors’ profiles.
99.8% of lesson ratings are 5 stars. Why? Because unlike other platforms, we accept only the top 10% of tutor applications.
To see our full FAQs or get help from our friendly team, click the '?' in the corner of the screen. You can also watch students talking about their experiences learning via LanguaTalk below.
1-on-1 lessons are perhaps the best way to improve speaking skills, and because of this many students use LanguaTalk to learn to speak English fluently. That said, some students have other, more specific goals. Tell your tutor what your goals are and they'll tailor the lessons to your needs. Most tutors can help with any of the following:
New to LanguaTalk? You'll have one credit for a free trial. Most tutors offer a trial for free. If they do not, they’ll offer a trial session at a discount compared to their usual hourly rate.
Trial sessions last 30 minutes. They allow you to assess whether the tutor is a good fit for you, and get a feel for learning online. The tutor will assess your level and aim to understand your needs and interests so that they can customise any lessons you decide to take. You'll be encouraged to speak in English as much as possible, but of course you can speak in English too!
After your session, if you feel that the tutor isn’t quite right for you, you can simply book a trial with someone else.
Most of the English tutors on our site are able to teach students of all levels. When you click on a tutor's profile you'll see if certain levels are not supported. For example, certain tutors cannot teach complete beginners.
Likewise, you can also see on the tutor's profile whether they're suitable for all ages. Online English lessons are sometimes taken to support school/college studies. Usually, the tutor will be able to customise the lessons to follow the material and topics covered in the student's exams. Please note that as per our Terms & Conditions, students who are under 18 must get permission from a legal guardian before booking.
Lessons are taught 1-on-1 so that you receive your tutor’s full attention and can make fast progress. Communicating via video call, you’ll be able to talk to your tutor and share learning materials as if you were in the same room.
The tutors vary in terms of their teaching methods, resources, experiences, and personalities. So we suggest you look at several profiles to choose the best tutor for you. Whichever English tutor you pick, they'll aim to tailor the lessons to your individual needs.
The vast majority of students take 55-minute lessons. But some tutors also provide the option of 30-minute lessons. If they do, you’ll see this noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the ‘Buy Lessons’ button).
55-minute lessons are recommended for most students. In general, we only suggest considering 30-minute lessons if they’re for your child, or you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.
We want students to have an exceptional learning experience on LanguaTalk, so we only accept the very best tutor applications. Though we consider qualifications and experience, we place equal value on communication skills, personality and reviews from previous students. Almost all tutors are native speakers of the language they teach, and we require that they can speak English too.
Each tutor is different - they have different backgrounds, strengths, teaching methods and personalities. So we suggest you browse several profiles to find the right English tutor for you.
The beauty of taking lessons online is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. To see tutors who are likely to fit your weekly schedule, use the availability filter at the top. Then when you see a tutor you like, check their profile calendar to make sure their time slots work for you. Some tutors have limited availability as they already have lots of students.
Our booking system is designed to be incredibly easy to use. You can see tutors' available hours in your local time zone. If you choose to book lessons with a tutor, you'll be able to purchase them one at a time, or buy in bulk with a volume discount. You can pay securely by card on our website.
You can manually add bookings to your personal calendar, or if you use Google calendar, you can add bookings automatically with our syncing feature. You'll also be able to receive email reminders to help ensure you don't forget to turn up.
You can reschedule or cancel lessons in a couple of clicks. Note that this can only be done up to 24 hours before the lesson time. This rule is required to protect tutors, who lose income when lessons are cancelled at the last minute.
Sometimes students feel uncertain about learning English online because they think it’ll be totally different to learning face-to-face. But usually when they try it, they find that the experience is almost the same and they often build a strong relationship with their tutor.
Once you start a video call with your chosen English tutor online, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. They’ll usually also share learning resources with you (using Google Docs, YouTube etc.) and you’ll be able to collaborate in real-time.
According to the Foreign Service Institute, if you already speak English, English is one of the easiest languages to learn. The exact amount of time it will take you to become fluent will depend on many factors, such as your current level, your knowledge of similar languages, your capacity to learn, how you study, and how intensively you study. Some will be able to go from beginner to conversational fluency within a couple of months through intensive study. Others will take longer. Combining 1-on-1 lessons with an online English tutor with regular self-study is an effective way to learn English fast.
If you live in the US or Europe, face-to-face English lessons may cost anywhere between $20 and $60 (USD) per hour. Online tutoring tends to be cheaper than face-to-face because the tutor doesn't need to travel to you. An online English tutor could cost anywhere from $13 to $50 per hour, but be aware that very cheap tutors may lack experience. On LanguaTalk, English tutors typically charge between $14 and $40 per hour.
Of course, learning 1-on-1 with an experienced English tutor is not the cheapest way to learn; you could learn via a free app instead. But if you're serious about learning, nothing beats 1-on-1 English lessons with a great teacher.
There is no 'best way' to learn a language - it depends on your needs, level and budget. If you can't afford to take lessons, you can use a free app such as Duolingo to build your vocabulary. And to improve your listening skills, you can watch TV and listen to podcasts in English. But to learn how to actually speak a language, you need to talk to a native speaker on a regular basis and receive accurate feedback so that you improve.
