I'm looking for a teacher/community tuttor to teach me something really specific. Someone? I'm looking for a really specific subject to learn about: american slang and social media expressions/symbols. I need that for my job: I work in a very particular social media field. My target audience would be teenagers and millennials (17-35 years old). I'd like to understand that "code" completely and be able to use it myself in some degree. With "american slang" I'm referring to Jesse Pinkman's way of talking, just to give you an example. Some topics: alcohol, drugs, relationships, sex, greetings, politics, customer service complains and regular comments on facebook, instagram, twitter and youtube. I want to schedule, I think, about 5 lessons in order to learn this. I guess 5 lessons will be enough, if not, we can always do more. Thanks in advance!

Any American English native speaker should be able to help you with what you need. Whether they would feel comfortable discussing such topics is an entire different story. Check out the article I wrote for my blog on how to find a language teacher online efficiently, and once you have a handful of potential teachers, message them and let them know what you need help with and whether they are comfortable teaching you that. http://www.fluencynow.com/2016/11/08/the-ultimate-guide-to-finding-an-online-language-teacher/

As a dad, I would also like to learn the slang of American young people so I can understand my kids.
