Paki-tulungan akong makapagsalita ng Ingles.

The Tagalog word "paki" expresses respect in making a request. It carries the same meaning as "please" in English. But unlike in English, the word "paki" is never used as a stand-alone word. As a rule, its usage is as a prefix to a verb, making for a compound verb that is usually hyphenated. To illustrate, please consider the following examples:
ENGLISH: "Please close the door."
TAGALOG: "Paki-sara ang pinto."

Examples relating to your request:
ENGLISH: "Please help me."
TAGALOG: "Paki-tulungan ako."

ENGLISH: "Please help me speak English."
TAGALOG: "Paki-tulungan akong makapagsalita ng Ingles."
