Hi, I’m Liz. I’m a native English speaker and I have spent most of my life living and working in London, England.
I have a CELTA qualification for teaching English as a foreign language, and I also have a BA in English Literature from a central London university.
My teaching experience has been predominately online in 1-2-1 lessons, but I also have experience teaching in person to groups of children at language camp in the UK.
I plan bespoke lessons specifically to meet your needs. During the trial, or initial lesson I will spend time getting to know you and thinking about how I can best help you to meet your goals. This may be by working together on a structured curriculum, or perhaps you need to focus on your speaking skills so you can improve your confidence.
I use a variety of materials, including course books, online exercises and news articles.
I have also helped some of my students to prepare for their English Literature exams, here in the UK, or internationally. I particularly enjoy these lessons as I am passionate about literature.
I would love to help you on your language journey so I hope to meet you soon.See Reviews From Students

My name is Edit and I am living in Japan. I attended an English-Hungarian Bilingual Secondary Grammar School, where I developed my love for the English language. I have always been interested in Eastern languages and cultures as well, so I decided to specialize in Japanese language and culture at university. After graduating, I moved to Japan, where I have been working as an English teacher for more than 2 years now. I have an IELTS certificate and I also completed a TEFL teaching course.
I focus on creating a relaxed, friendly, and welcoming atmosphere during my lessons. I encourage my students to make mistakes because that's the only way to master a language. I always personalize the lesson material and adjust it to the student's personal goal and level. I love teaching this beautiful language, and my goal is to motivate my students to reach their language goals. 😊

My name is Ali and I am an IELTS teacher. Teaching IELTS is actually my passion. I have been teaching English since 2002, but in 2009 I decided to focus exclusively on IELTS and since then I have just trained my students for this exam. During these years, I have endeavoured to help my students develop the necessary English language skills to be successful in their future business and particularly university setting. I am also proud of providing the best teaching methods for my students to help them get their IELTS score as soon as possible.
The students who have received disappointing IELTS results in previous attempts and didn't know why they got such a low score or others who couldn't afford to fail the IELTS test (it's expensive!) can come to me for consultation before taking the official IELTS exam.See Reviews From Students

Do you need English for your work, a job interview, or life in an English-speaking country? Do you want to speak English with more confidence? I'm Iren, and I offer speaking lessons for adults. My conversation lessons focus on one topic per session, like health, work, meals, money, transportation, and other topics you are interested in. Before the lesson, I will give you an article (from english-online.net or another online source) about the topic for you to study to prepare. In the conversation lesson, we will talk about the topic. You will expand your English vocabulary with my suggestions. You will review spoken grammar when you use it in the conversation and receive my constant feedback. I will explain the grammar point if needed. You will leave the lesson with many notes and some exercises to study further.
I have four years of experience teaching adults English as a Second Language using this method. I know that it builds your vocabulary, your grammar knowledge, your pronunciation skills, and your confidence. I also have a TEFL certificate from the University of Toronto.
I also offer job interview prep lessons. For these lessons, please provide details about your job type, your industry, and the companies you are applying to.See Reviews From Students
I specialize in teaching adults, especially white-collar employees, to ‘Speak English better, or more fluently’ on a wide range of general and business topics. I have taught more than 11667 lessons to 1380 students, many for a couple of years!
Hi, I am Gary, born and raised in London. I have a TESOL Teaching Certificate and 12+ years of teaching experience, in both Business English and IELTS 6.5 7.0 7.5+, online since 2016 and at schools and universities in China.
A first-class communicator and motivator with excellent interpersonal skills, and looking forward to transferring these abilities, using my knowledge of Business English and IELTS 6.5 7.0 7.5+. With this proven method, you will quickly improve your communication skills.
A trial lesson is a good way to try out my English teaching methods. → Shall we make a start?
Cambridge IELTS Academic & IELTS General Training; SPEAKING ONLY → Do you need band seven or higher in the IELTS speaking test? Who is it for? Those who need to take a real-life IELTS SPEAKING test in a hurry. All aspects of the IELTS Speaking test are covered, just like the real test, with ideas and useful expressions to use in all parts of the test, and how to approach the IELTS examiner’s questions.
Real life conversation → often looks very different to dialogues in coursebooks. I specialize in teaching adults, especially WHITE-COLLAR EMPLOYEES, to ‘Speak English better, or more fluently,’ You need to keep up a conversation on a wide range of general and business topics, expressing opinions and presenting arguments. Good form, in fact, is not to try to initiate any topics of conversation yourself at all.
Communicate effectively → in business face-to-face situations, such as everyday business conversations, with ideas and useful expressions to use, like Business Phrasal verbs.
Communication Skills → A good way to practice intonation and fluency is by copying the rhythm of native speakers. A dictation exercise in which a piece of writing is dictated to students, to test their ability to hear and write the language correctly.
What is not covered in my lessons?
In the process of designing courses on LanguaTalk. The teaching of young children, grammar rules and (phonics), writing and informal tutoring are not covered.See Reviews From Students
Hello, I'm teacher Kelly and I'm a native English speaker from the UK.
I completed my TEFL in Asia and have over 6 years teaching experience with kids and adults from a combination of working in schools and online. My students tell me I have a clear and neutral accent that is easy to understand. They often comment on my relaxed and fun energy in my lessons.
When working with children I create vibrant and interactive lessons that include phonics, writing & reading. After each class a worksheet or activity can be given. When working with adults I also like to create fun lessons. Learning grammar is stressful and I like to focus more on conversation and simplified explanations. We learn about phrasal verbs, idioms and lots of other things a new learner should need to be able to understand and speak like a native.
As a teacher I believe it is important to make the students feel comfortable and give them a safe space to learn and not to be afraid to make mistakes. Learning a new language is not easy it takes time and dedication, I understand this and try to build the students confidence as much as possible.

Hi there! My name is Deborah. I’m a native English speaker from the US, and I create customized lessons based on your level, goals, interests and learning style.
My #1 priority is to provide a warm, supportive atmosphere where you’ll feel comfortable to speak. I think that a communicative approach is key to language learning. I’ll be sure to give you plenty of opportunities to practice speaking, so that you’ll be able to find your words and express yourself confidently outside of class.
My other top priority is to learn, over time, how to craft sessions that will be both fun and productive for you. Language learning should be pleasantly challenging. If the material is too easy, you’ll be bored. If it’s too hard, you’ll be overwhelmed. It’s my job to find “just the right amount of challenge” for you. I want you to enjoy and look forward to our sessions. After all, the “best” approach for you will be the one that you choose to stick with for the long-term.
Thank you for reviewing my profile. If you feel that we may be a good tutor/learner fit, please feel free to book a trial session. During our first (trial) session, we’ll get to know each other, and we’ll work together to decide on an approach that will work well for you.

Hello and welcome!
I am a qualified English teacher from the USA currently living in Spain. I have more than eight years of experience and have worked in five countries!
1. How can I help you?
I offer a mix of classes including Conversation, Grammar, Cambridge Prep, and Business. I focus on student-output and try to make a learner feel as comfortable as possible in the online environment.
I really encourage you to look at your Speaking skills and comfort. I find that even advanced students benefit from general conversation which I will happily guide.
2. What method do you use?
Together, we will decide what are your goals for the class. Then, I use a mix of multimedia (video, audio, online games) and tradition coursework.
Alongside working online, I also am an ESL teacher in a Spanish school.
3, I want to work on something specific.
Excellent! Join a class and share what you want to improve, focus on, learn and together. I am here to facilitate learning and make sure you see personal growth.
4. I am nervous to start learning English.
Personally, I have been studying Spanish for many years. I know it can cause anxiety to speak in another language. But the best thing to do is just start! Be clear with your goals, time frame, and intentions and go from there.
5. What are you interested in? Are we similar?
I have a love of travelling, and have combined my job (ESL teacher) with this hobby. I also spend a lot of time at the beach and hiking. But don't forget, it can assist in interesting conversations if we have different interests.

CELTA qualified and IELTS Teacher certified. Teaching since 2013 and exclusively online since 2020.
I have extensive experience in coaching and business, having run my own sports coaching business for 20 years. I teach conversational English on a thematic basis (topic-related) with an emphasis on correct grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. I also teach Business English (job interviews, negotiation, presentations, time management, meetings etc). I prepare students for IELTS and TOEFL exams.
All my lessons are specifically tailored to the individual student's needs and interests, and we work at your pace. Most language learners are working at different levels in the four pillars of reading, writing, listening and speaking, which is why private one-to-one lessons with a sympathetic teacher are so valuable. You will see an improvement in a very short time once you commit to a structured programme of learning. Homework is optional, but recommended.
I live in the South West of England, and I have a standard British accent. I speak Spanish fluently and a little French. I have spent 10 years learning Spanish so I know what it is like to lack confidence and to feel that you can't remember anything under pressure. But I also know what a joy it is to be able to communicate effectively. It is also why I love teaching because I meet people from all over the world and I learn so much about other cultures and countries.
In my spare time, I enjoy walking, reading, cooking and riding my motorbike!
I hope to meet you in the classroom soon :)See Reviews From Students
Hi there! My name is Alessia and I'm a certified English teacher from Canada. I've been living in Lucca, Italy for the past seven years and I love it!
I've been teaching for over seven years now. In 2016 I completed my TESOL certificate and shortly thereafter began teaching at a private elementary school. I've worked with people ages 5-55 and my favourite thing about teaching is getting to know people from different cultures and learning all about their customs and traditions. My second favourite thing is seeing my students succeed and achieve their language goals!
My approach to teaching depends on the individual needs of my students. Each lesson is customized to the unique goals of my students. That being said, you can definitely expect homework in my classes! For conversation lessons, we'll focus on using media to expand your vocabulary and spend the entire lesson speaking about different topics. For those who need a grammar brush-up, we'll use various books to support your learning but still focus on conversation to help you fully integrate what you've just learned!
I also have experience preparing students for the IELTS exam for both immigration and academic purposes. I absolutely love the IELTS exam in that it provides students with a real challenge and something to aspire to. I have a wide variety of resources that I use to help you prepare which cover everything from grammar and vocabulary to the actual "how-to's" of writing the exam. If you are interested in working with me on exam prep, I suggest AT LEAST 3-6 months to prepare properly for the exam since you'll not only need to improve your language skills but also your exam-taking skills.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you and supporting you to reach your language goals!See Reviews From Students
Me as a Teacher
I am a professional English teacher with more than 30 years of teaching experience mainly in US - NYC and UK - East Midlands. Initially as a college English and Maths teacher, these days I teach online. My learners are students who tend to improve their school grades, students who are preparing for international exams, business professionals who work or intend to work for international companies or people who learn English for pleasure. For every individual I usually prepare some tasks for a free talk, grammar practice or a role-play situation with targeting vocabulary and phrases. There is always a summary, a given feedback at the end of the class which helps my learners to make progress highly visible.
My lessons & teaching style
I believe that every learner is different and teaching them should be personalized. I like to apply different teaching methods to see which one would be the most productive. Of course, I need to meet student several times to be able to find out his/her learning style and be able to create a teaching strategy. In my experience, an individual approach, a personalized topic and mutual effort definitely bring some fruit.See Reviews From Students
Hi, I’m Rob, a native English speaking 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 your computer or phone/tablet (but use of the app on your computer is recommended for the best quality).
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

1 - Find your ideal tutor by browsing videos, reviews, pricing and availability.
2 - Book a trial. Many tutors offer a 30-minute trial for free; others charge a discounted price.
3 - Take personalised lessons with your new tutor via video call. Or try someone else.

You can pay one lesson at a time, or buy in bulk for a discount (open a tutor's profile to see their pricing options).
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 'Help' button in the bottom-right. 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. If you want to make fast progress, it's best to take 1-on-1 lessons that are tailored to your needs by an experienced online English teacher.Arabic tutors | Chinese tutors | Dutch tutors | French tutors | German tutors | Greek tutors | Italian tutors | Japanese tutors | Korean tutors | Portuguese tutors | Romanian tutors | Russian tutors | Spanish tutors | Swedish tutors | Thai tutors
