I had Stuti as an English tutor for my son and couldn't be more happier. His grades improved tremendously. Stuti is knowledgeable, friendly, and flexible. Highly recommended!!
Professional, on time. John is tutoring my 10 year old son in math, specifically, common core math. John is very patient which is what my son needs. I try to help him but I lose my patience which frustrates both of us. I am glad John is able to help and I hope my son will improve his math skills. John has tutored Christopher twice only so I hope this review is helpful. So far, I would recommend John.
Marion is a wonderful teacher who is skilled at determine and working with various language levels. She is also very attentive and really helped me advance my language skills and pronunciation. I recommend her whole-heartedly!
Camilla is a professional!She has the power to make yuo fall in love with the English language. I really enjoy having English classes whith her.
I took English lessons with Toni to improve my vocabulary and my academic English. She was also kind enough to tell me about many local resources and she taught me a lot about the American culture and way of life. Toni is very dedicated in her teaching, and she made sure I learned new idiomatic and local expressions in addition to working on my academic English skills. Towards the end of my semester at UC Berkeley she helped me proof my term papers, and provided me with excellent feedback and very helpful comments on my written English. Not only is she a great teacher, she's also a very warm and friendly person who will make you feel welcome and offer a safe teaching environment. Also, make sure you try her mint tea, it's delicious!
I have been taking Mandarin Chinese for a few years and have had the pleasure for the last 6 months of having Lilian as my tutor. I enjoy her conversational approach taken from printed material. There's no English in it, so it's all memorization. It is both growing my vocabulary and helping me have more meaningful dialog with native Chinese speakers. Lilian is a wonderful intelligent instructor. Some of the course work doesn't stick in my head easily, so I appreciate her patients and persistence helps to that after awhile that which was difficult is now easy. My class with her is one of the highlights of my week.
I have been taking Spanish lessons from Ms. Price. She is incredibly personable, knowledgeable and helpful. My Spanish skills have soared since I've started with her. Very friendly, she is an excellent teacher. She knows where weak points are and knows how to explain advanced subjects in a way which is very understandable. I am definitely going to continue lessons and I highly recommend Ms. Price to anyone who is seeking to improve their language skills.
I take both French and Portuguese with Ingrid and have been extremely satisfied. Her holistic approach to learning ensures that you will know how to apply the language lessons you learn in the field. I was on a time constraint to visit old friends in France and I had about 1.5 months to prepare, and Ingrid prepared me linguistically and culturally to blend in and fully enjoy my time there. Subsequently, I learned that I would be moving to Brazil for work. Thank goodness my French teacher also taught Portuguese! I leave for Brazil this week and after two months with Ingrid, I'm ready for full immersion again! If you have ever visited and lived in a country, you know full immersion is like a punch in the face for the ill-prepared (most textbook taught language students), but with Ingrid you can rest assured that you will be fully prepared for full contact language learning!
I have been working with Linda since January 2017. I moved from Seoul South Korea in 2012 for school, and I knew I needed to improve my English. Working with a English tutor was my new year resolution to advance my English skill. I learned not only business english expressions, grammar, and presentation skills, but also how to continue to learn by myself which is one of the most important tools I learned from her. After I started working with Linda, my contract role as a UI/UX Designer at a global design software company in SF became a full time position. I've been enjoying working with her! She is so passionate, devoted and fun to work with.
Kristen was essential in my English learning process - I practically learned to speak and write in English from her. She's a master of her mother tongue: profound and eloquent. On top of her knowledge, she is able to teach English in an exciting way which makes studying a lot of fun.
Lisa helped me with the my English lessons, and I would like to recommend her as a like very good and patient teacher. She is very experienced in grammar and Business English as well.
Chris is an excellent teacher. I had a few other teachers before her, and I can say Chris is the best. I think she is also a good phycologist, because she finds right approach to every student. Her lessons are very effective. My 7 years old daughter knew no English at all. She was ready to go to local school just after 3-4 lessons with Chris, her vocabulary increased from zero to a few hundreds of words. I feel dramatic improvement in my English pronunciation after taking lessons with Chris. My accent was so strong that even waiters in McDonalds did not understand me. Now I speak freely, even over the phone, and I do it intuitively without thinking about how do I do it.
Roslyn Raney has worked for the One-to-One Tutoring Service since 2004. She has tutored many students in French, German, and Spanish for our service very successfully. Adults who want to learn a language for travel purposes have been particularly impressed with her ability to teach them what they need to know to be able to converse successfully in the country they are traveling to. She also has tutored numerous high school students as well. I have received many positive comments from clients who worked with Roslyn. She came to our service having taught languages at the college level for a number of years at San Jose State and College of San Mateo.
My stepdaughter has been working with Sylvia for a few months now and we can really see a difference in her math and English (reading, writing, spelling, etc). My stepdaughter actually looks forward to her time with Sylvia, which is so important to us. Sylvia is very patient, personable and knowledgeable. My stepdaughter got very excited yesterday, after she found out that Sylvia is also fluent in Spanish because she would like to start working on that as well. I feel that we really lucked out with finding Sylvia. Soon, my other stepdaughter will be working with Sylvia to prep her for the SSAT!
Corinne did an AMAZING job translating English-Mandarin content for our company. We exclusively worked with her for all marketing materials, legal documents, and service offerings. She's thorough, fast, and understands the nuance of the language very well. Corinne also helped us communicate in Mandarin to clients and prospects over the phone and email. She's a joy to work with and I highly recommend her for any of your Mandarin translation projects!
Audrey is excelent teacher, she helped me to lose my respect to speak English. She let me speak and then corrected my mistakes and explained why I did them. She wrote these sentences with corrected mistakes and I can look at it anywhen. I could choose the topic and l learned to use English in common life. It helped me in my job very much.
I am fluent in English and have a great ability to teach you also to read, write and speak in English!
I can teach English to children (small age group/elementary level). I have my qualifications. I have a master's degree in English/ECs credentials/business administration credential. I want to be contacted through email only.
Because we are small, we are able to offer a far more personalized approach than many large tutoring houses. Yet, we have the tools, training, and know-how of a large academic institution. For each student, we systematically work to identify problems, and then collaboratively create a plan to solve them using innovative curriculum design. Above all else, we are passionate about what we do! We care about genuine knowledge and understanding: we look beyond the numbers. We teach students to set their own goals, not merely jump through the hoops in front of them. We strongly believe that any student can succeed with the right combination of guidance, enthusiasm, and challenge.
