Hi! My name is Esther, or โฟนจ๋า as my Thai nickname. I currently speak three languages: Thai, English, and a little bit of Finnish.
I have just started teaching a few months, so you can book a trial lesson to see how I teach and then decide whether or not you like it. I take a variety of approaches depending on the student because everyone learns and receives information differently.
You can discuss your learning objectives with me during our first lesson or at the end of our learning topic. During our lesson, I primarily used the presentation to help you visualize the words and grasp the concept of the word. I am delighted to be a part of your Thai learning journey. I hope to see you soon!See Reviews From Students
In my class, I try my best to create a safe and fun atmosphere where you can feel comfortable and confident to practise all the skills of Thai language, ask questions you have in mind, learn in informative and productive ways yet easy to understand and really can adapt to use in daily life. 💻
Thai is not an easy language to learn obviously but with my unique materials and techniques, it will give you a new experience that Thai can be actually easy and fun to learn 😊
Why study with me? 🇹🇭🖊️
I have experience as a Thai tutor to teach Thai learners in all levels; beginner, intermediate and advanced and all skills; speaking, listening, reading and writing. The courses are designed to be easy to understand and learn the commonly used words that you can build sentences from there and can be adapted use in daily life.
On top of that each student can learn at their own pace, get extra words and sentences tailored to the needs of each. We will not just follow the books blindly and not learn randomly without necessity.
The books have photos and I also use flashcards to help students remember Thai vocabs better. It is an interactive course and you can practise through exercises and get lots of practice speaking like a local.

Hello, my name is Nisa. I’m from Thailand.
I have a strong passion for learning languages and to teach my own language. I can speak Thai, English, and a bit of Italian and French.
I have a certificate in teaching Thai to foreigners, and I have been doing this independently for many years now. I have carefully crafted my own unique teaching style over the years through countless students, and created numerous worksheets for many different types of students at all levels. At this point, I have had many success stories with my students.
I can pinpoint a student’s weak point in regards to their language skills quite easily, and am able to give exact tips on how to boost it. I always try to be understanding of where my student is at and what they need help with the most.
For those of you who are just being introduced to Thai language, I think it is important to point out that Thai is a tonal language, which can be challenging at first for newcomers. But rest assured, I want to make this hurdle an easy one to overcome.
And for those who have already been introduced to Thai language, since this is one on one lessons, we can go over throughly any topics that you need a better understanding of for your goals, for example if you come here for Thai boxing, work, school, friends, or whatever it might be.

I'm Tarntawan, and I graduated Master's Degree in TEFL- certified. I used to be an English instructor at the university. I used English to communicate with my students in class. I taught at the university for 13 years. There, I also taught Thai to my students. I taught Thai to foreigners from many countries, such as America, Vietnam, Spain, China, Hong Kong, etc. My students learned communication skills from me. I was excited since it was challenging. Currently, I have at least 4 years of experience in teaching an online class.
I have a passion for being a teacher. I love transferring my knowledge to others and learning from others. "Everyone can be a teacher, but only some are the teacher with soul." For myself, my reward is not money but the success of my students. I am patient, kind, friendly, and open-minded. I love exchanging ideas with others on various topics. I enjoy talking to people from different countries in order to learn from them. Learning can take place everywhere.
I am specialized in communication for all levels of students. I usually carefully plan the lesson for my students based on their learning styles or request. I believe that learning by doing is productive in learning language and also leads to speaking naturally. However, if you need more skills to cover, we can discuss them in class. I provide the handout, exercises, assignment varied on each individual. For teaching material, I have a variety of materials such as audio or media: songs, films, and commercials. I plan and design my teaching materials by myself; therefore, if you are about the book, No books, but I provide handouts.
Moreover, I also lead the conversation about current topics, including slang and expressions in daily life. I teach according to the lesson plans and lead to the updated topics or trends that can draw your attention and motivate you to speak more. For intermediate and advanced levels, the topics are varied on interest and can be tailored by the students. Surely, the amount of speaking Thai should be encouraged, and I speak less amount in English, too.
Feel free to have a trial lesson to see how I can help you to become an effective Thai speaker.See Reviews From Students
🏅 QUALIFICATION & EXPERIENCE
֎ I've been teaching Thai to foreigners for four years, focusing on Grammar rules & writing methods which are the most difficult part of progressing to an intermediate & advanced level.
֎ I had over 10-year experience in the Marketing Department of 5-star Hotels & 2 International Airlines as a marketing analyst & proofreader to both Thai-Eng for Airline Advertising campaigns.
֎ I graduated with a Bachelor of Liberal Arts in 2006. Yet, from elementary school through university, I consistently received the top mark in Thai language study.
֎ I won a Thai Quatrain Poem composition Awarded (provincial level) in 2002.
🏅 WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT FROM LESSONS WITH ME?
֎ A friendly teacher & Fluent in English speaking and writing.
֎ Help you to build your confidence when speaking and help to improve your Thai accent & correct your pronunciation.
֎ You can raise up the question at all-time during a class. there is homework after a class is finished (of course, just proposed, not imposed)
֎ I found that there are Thai Teaching books for foreigners or even websites giving you lots of sentences but without explaining to you the grammar structure or roots. You can copy their sentences to speak but may not be able to adapt for better talks when you encounter a different situation. So, I created by myself the structure through my own materials like PDF, Google Drive, etc., so that you can retrieve the document whenever you want.
My goal is to help you talk Thai like Natives do.

Most students take 55-minute classes. However, some teachers also offer the option of 30-minute classes. If this is available, it will be noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the 'Buy Lessons' button).
In general, we recommend 55-minute classes for most students. You may want to consider 30-minute classes only if you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice, or if the lesson is for a child.
The advantage of taking classes online is that you can learn at any time and from any location. When you select a teacher, check their calendar to ensure that they have available slots that fit your schedule. Some teachers may have limited availability due to high demand from other students.
