And she gave me vocabulary homework. We exchanged e-mail with each other before the first lesson, so she could prepare the first lesson for me. Every time she checked my needs for studying English, and then she prepared it for the next lesson. Even though I forgot it, she still remembers about my needs and requests. She has a lot of sources for teaching ESL; book, newspapers for ESL, internet sites, etc. I think she has lots of experience for teaching ESL. I really appreciate her. Thank you Meghan!
Hanna was one of the best ESL teachers we've ever known. I asked her to teach 3 teenage kids visiting Portland from Japan academic English skills, mainly reading and writing using the ESL textbook they had never used before. She spontaneously accepted our lesson-request. The lessons were more than we had expected. The kids who had had almost no speaking experiences actively participated in her lessons, tried to interact with her and learned so quickly some academic reading and writing skills.
I can say for sure that Taylah is a great, patient, and knowledgeable ESL teacher that all the ESL students need. She helped me a lot to improve my grammar and pronunciation for a presentation and also taught me using more appropriate expressions for an oral presentation.
