    No.

    'I can teach you English and help you to improve your command of the language.'

    What about: "We can make your English improve."

    No. "We can help you to improve your English" is possible.

    Is it possible to omit 'help you to' from bhaisahab's sentence above?

    Not a teacher.

    I find "We can improve your English" unnatural. You might hear it but the only person who can improve their English is the learner. Teachers facilitate that improvement.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
