Lisa-Beth is a great tutor and is teaching me business English and grammar lessons. Our first meeting was easy to schedule and she made me feel comfortable. Would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to learn quickly and correctly.
Carl has truly been a blessing. My son is always looking forward to his tutoring day with Mr. Carl. I have seen a huge improvement with not only his reading but also with his speech. He gives him books that he will enjoy ,but also challenge him. Thank you so much Mr. Carl.
We highly recommend Lois For tutoring. She is well known in Honolulu and has years of experience. She tutored our granddaughter when she needed to take the entrance exams into private schools. Lois has great knowledge of children and skill in getting them to do their work. Her lessons were challenging and fun. Our grandaughter could hardly wait to return to her next session. We wish Lois was here to tutor our grandaughter in her college SATS. Carol Lehman
Joyee Lin of Thinque has been nothing short of amazing. Professional with results to show. My daughter started working with Joyee a couple of months ago. Within six lessons, my daughter's composite ACT score went from a 28 prior to working with Joyee to a 32. Amazingly, her science score went from a 25 to a 32. Those numbers are the end result of Joyee's professional approach to teaching. During the lesson, Joyee utilizes a number of methods to present the material. It must be said that my daughter took his instruction seriously and worked hard on the material which was provided to her. The result was a good example of team work in which my daughter could receive, in addition to immediate instruction, quick review and understanding after working through the material. Joyee makes it easy to work around a busy lifestyle as he schedules and responds to correspondence promptly. We can't offer him enough praise. Joyee is offering an amazing service and we were so glad to have been referred to him.
Physics lessons with Tran was very well done. I'm doing much better in my college class now, I'm going to call elite if I need more help. Thanks Tran
Miss Carolyn's coaching is very, very helpful for my auditions, in terms of script analysis, creating characters, and career developing. I thought I already knew all the subtext of my monologues. But Carolyn pointed out more details which I ignored but very important for my understanding of the structure and arc of my monologues. For example, for my classic monologue, Carolyn taught me a very important lesson that, instead of cutting the parts I felt like unnecessary to say, I should figure out the reason why the character repeat or exaggerate the same t thing at certain places, what her intention is, and what quality it reflects the character has. Knowing that the "place" my character is in is very important to me, Carolyn asked series of questions to help me to explore the place, which offers me a better sense of reality for the scene. By exploring the physical gesture of my characters, Carolyn helped me to gain better ownership of my two different characters. As a person whose first language is not English, Carolyn helped me with my diction and taught me the method to practice my pronunciation. The relationship of diction and acting was ignored by me. I used to think as long as your intention and truthful feeling are there, your acting will be good. But Carolyn let me realized that the more I make myself clear, the better intention and feeling I can express through my language, the more fluid my acting will be, and the better audiences will know from what my characters say. we also run through the whole audition several times, I got to know what the recruiter expect from students, and what I should put on during the audition. During the five session classes, I gained more confidence about my strengths and I was affected by Carolyn's bright personality, her passion for acting and her professionalism . I just finished my all auditions. And I got callback from NYU. Now waiting for the results. Fingers crossed.
During the time of operation of Let The Kids Grow Los Angeles, California 2013-2014. I had the privilege of working with and managing Mrs. Tracy Pfau, she was our head Acting instructor. She had the tasks and duties of working with underprivileged children of the community to help them stay off the streets and into the classrooms. She was able to work with children that possessed some knowledge of acting to complete beginners. She was professional and always uplifting to the children and respected them in a professional and caring manner as if they were her own. She not only taught them the basics fundamentals of acting but she showed them the professionalism and seriousness of the business surrounding a acting career. The ages of the children ranged from 4-17. As this was a after school program she would always be ready with a lesson plan and would not mind helping after hours if needed. I have learned that to be a great instructor you need to first have a great heart and a seriousness to the profession, and Mrs. Pfau is the total package as she is a great instructor and a great mentor and even after the program finished she was still willing to work with the children on a personal basis to really help these children accomplish their goals in the acting profession. I would be more than happy to recommend Mrs. Pfau in any future projects as I do not recommend people unless I really believe in them.
Very patient with new a student, very understanding. Very capable. The lessons are more than adequate.
Knows his stuff. Very precise and love the written homework after every lesson. Highly recommend.
I've been working with Brian Gillet since 2011 to this present day. One of my fellow art classmates recommended Brian's services and I am so grateful for the chance to work with him on Private Voice Lessons. Brian helped me on so many levels with my voice technique, performance skills, and confidence within myself as a performer. I can honestly say that I am the performer that I am today because of Brian's help and guidance. His support and diligence on helping me with material is extremely important in a vocal coach. And you would be lucky to have the opportunity to work with such a fine teacher.
Very good at what she does. I learned a great deal in the few lessons that I had. It is unfortunate that my schedule is pretty grueling with 3 little ones. I will seek her expertise once I get a better handle on balancing my toddlers and time for myself!
I spent a lot of time looking for tutors for my 2 daughters and it was hard to find someone who could help 2 kids in one day. One of my daughters is ADHD and the other is behind in school. He also explained to me what my ADHD child should eat and shouldn't eat to balance and to help her focus. He is very knowledgeable with the topics he teaches and spends extra time as needed to make sure my children understood and tries to finished up homework. He is caring and very patient. Very good tutor.
My daughter Xcaret started taking Music lessons since she was 4 years old. By age 6 she wanted to sing so we choose voice lessons. We are lucky to had found Beverly who has encourage her to improve her vocals. I highly recommend Beverly, she knows how to engage, make music fun, and show you all the tricks to improve your vocals and take it to another level. Xcaret has been taking voice lessons with Beverly for 18 months now. It truly has been a wonderful experience. Xcaret loves to perform, does her recitals, has more confidence and now sings all the time! And the best thing for me as a mother of 3 kiddos, Beverly is available for home lesson too! 🎼🎤🏆
Joan helped me by providing Spanish language lessons. We met at her home where she was always prepared with a program specific to my progress and needs. I was impressed with her knowledge and friendly and professional manor. I recommend Joan if you need help at any level in learning Spanish.
I came to Oliver at Verbal Ninja ahead of a big speech that had career and even life changing potential. I was speaking to a large group of fellow doctors, several of whom were what you might call “celebrity doctors.” Frankly, I wanted to upstage them. I myself have an acting background but have always had a lot of stage fright for public speaking. I worked with Oliver over the month leading up to the big event. I knew what I wanted to say, just not quite how to say it. He made my words sound like nothing I’ve ever heard before—yes, that good. Yet it still sounded like me…I felt comfortable and spontaneous. He sort of gave me the voice that I always thought I had inside, if that makes any sense. He also coached my delivery, voice, gestures, movement, eye contact, etc. etc. His tricks to conquer stage fright—especially the psychological aspect—are brilliant. The result? I think I killed it that night. Even my billionaire friend who came to see me said I spoke better than a lot of people he sees that speak on a regular basis. Even the owner of the company had this to say: “Thanks for everything, the event was great and we were very happy that you gave that speech, it was amazing! Not only the way you presented (like an actor) but also the content was very emotional, some tears were shed from Melissa.“ People came up to me afterwards and shared how I changed their view on aesthetics and really motivated them. All the “famous doctors” who spoke alongside me on the panel were super impressed as well. In short, Oliver came to me highly recommended. He leaves me even more highly recommended. If the stakes are high, he’s the guy.
My daughter became more confident and comfortable speaking in front of others with every lesson.
Caroline helped me edit a speech I gave to a group of eighty women at a church retreat. Her comments were insightful. Working with her helped to clarify my thoughts and tighten my presentation.
I used to be intermediate level of English but after tutoring, I feel that my English improved to an advanced level. I can more properly use grammar in speech and in sentences. I am happy to say that I am now going to college and I really recommend tutoring. My experience was really good.
I am so glad I connected with Catherine for my public speaking concerns because she made all the difference in the world in helping me gain confidence, connect with the audience and the content of my speech. In fact, I originally needed help in speech content and my delivery in order to get a promotion I passed up awhile back, due to my lack of speaking skills. Because of Catherine’s insight to motivation, and her skill in determining a person's development of content suited to my specific topics, I made a huge impression on my colleagues and apparently my supervisor in the accounting office I work at. Many thanks, Catherine, to your patience and guidance to set me apart from all the others with my unique personality in speaking and presenting. And now, I have tremendous confidence! Kimberly W.

I always enjoy our French lessons!

Graduated from Berklee College of Music 2013 in Music Business Management with a focus in Voice. I recently worked on accent reduction with a famous Disney teen artist. I was recently on NBC/Telemundo "Yo Soy El Artista" a spanish show equivalent to The Voice for latin american audiences. I have plenty of experience in the music industry touring, songwriting, vocal production/vocal arranging and doing background vocal work. I was born and raised in the US. Spanish was my first language. I speak French and Portuguese as well. I grew up singing in church at a very young age. I believe that gave me an innate ability to improv at the drop of a hat! I can also teach you to accompany yourself with guitar or piano! Comfortable teaching all styles, but my main strengths lie within the pop/R&B genres. I'll focus all my energies to get to where you wanna be! I am looking forward to hearing from you soon!
