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.
Lois has a great ability to adapt to the student's needs. I love her teaching methods, developed by her based in all her years of experience teaching english. I've experienced a really fast improvement with pronunciation, which was my number one concern. I've really enjoyed her classes and I totally recommend her!
I am writing as a PhD student, who two MA degrees and a fellow in the Writing Program at a Top 20 University. I have experience editing for an interdisciplinary journal, publishing, translated/edit for lawyers and business professionals and PBS, and teaching many courses at the college level. When it came time to find an editor for a project I am very dedicated to and which is theoretically and historically complex, I had a hard time finding someone whose capabilities I trusted, who could provide a quick turn around of my document, and maintain a friend yet professional level of communication. Temi is that person. No, she is not a friend of mine; No, I have not used thumbtack before; No, I dont tend to spend my time writing reviews. Simply put: her work compares to company's that quoted me at literally four times the cost, she has talent, is flexible, and responsible. She is comfortable receiving payment by Paypal or Venmo---amongst other official options. Overall, editing with Temi has been an ideal experience.
We couldn't have asked for a better experience. For a kid who does not traditionally "get" mathematics, Jeff did a fantastic job helping him to grasp the concepts taught in his class, and went above and beyond in every way!
I cannot say enough about Thinque Prep and Joyee Lin. He is dedicated to his students success and does a very thorough job of preparing them for the ACT or SAT test. My son, Zack, who is very bright but requires a lot of patience worked with Joyee over the summer and brought his composite ACT score up from 30 to 33. His math score increased a full 4 pts. and he scored a 35 in English. Thinque Prep has other services related to tutoring and college application preparation. Zack will be working with Joyee on his college application essays. Joyee is in California and we are in Texas but this was never an issue as the sessions are done via video chat. The office manager Jen was great to work with and the appointment process was easy to navigate. I found the rates to be very competitive for like services. If there was a way to give extra stars I would!!
I'm so happy to have Tony as my English teacher! He is friendly and funny so the classes are not boring and also he is flexible so for me it's very important because I have to coordinate with my job. I highly recommend Tony as a teacher!
My son is getting a lot out of the 1:1 tutoring. Sarah is really good. So happy with her skills.
She is a very nice person and also a great teacher. I am very happy with the classes. I am not only learning English, I am also learning about culture and a large variety of subjects.
"I had the pleasure of having Linda as an English teacher for a few years. She is passionate, patient, a perfectionist, and always has good energy. She is a great teacher but, most important, an excelent person. I strongly recommend Linda."
Nuria Fortier was my Spanish teacher for fall 2014 through the International Language School for Children and Adults. I am an adult, beginner level spanish language student with some previous beginner coursework. Our Saturday morning one-hour classes are held at Pitzer College and ran from September through December into January. I am very impressed with Nuria's language instruction. She meets the students where he/she is in their learning, yet also helps you to challenge yourself (for example speaking as much as possible in Spanish during lesson). She stresses the importance of grammar and verb conjugation structures within conversational Spanish lesson. She constructs lessons so that we come into contact with verbs and then we address the conjugation. She recommended two very good books for beginner level that we use during the lesson, and also introduces fun story reading (at children's level which is actually very good for beginner adult learner). Nuria is very professional and reliable, and encouraging for an adult language learner! Nothing negative to report. Nuria has also created a local Spanish speaking group of current and former students who meet to practice Spanish and I am looking forward to joining this group. Thank you Nuria! I recommend ILSCA and Nuria Fortier for Spanish language. Her Children's programs are also very well attended.
She is very experienced and very polite teacher. Looking forward to see changes in my English presentation skills!
Me being a high school student taking AP classes is a difficult challenge. This was especially true when sophomore year came around when I took AP Biology and thought it would be easy. I was proven wrong when those first few grades came and AP was not looking good. I knew and my mom knew that we need help. That's when we found Fred. I can say that this experience truly helped me a lot. After a while I began to actually understand the material which was proven on how my AP grade improved. If someone were to ask me who would I recommend for tutoring then Fred is the person you are searching for. One thing you can sure expect is be preapered to work hard and give your all.
Sheehan worked as my English tutor in Sydney. She worked so hard and well prepared for every single tutorial. Thanks for her help , I eventually passed the test. Highly recommended.
Ms. Barbara is a very nice patient teacher. She is very experienced and she knows how to teach American English effectively and efficiently. I have learned a lot from her and I will definitely continue my learning with her. I highly recommend her as an English teacher!
Paulina has been the best tutor I've ever worked with- she has been working with me on my independent math class and is able to work with me in a way that I understand and even enjoy the material. Could not recommend more
I recommend my teacher of English, because she is professional and patient. I like how she develops classes in a light and funny way. I never feel ashamed to speak!
Whenever I have a high stakes assignment, I take it to Oliver. He never disappoints. Whether its a History DBQ, an English literary analysis, or a letter of recommendation, Oliver makes it better. His analytical mind and command of the language are untouchable.
My 8 year old daughter has been tutoring with Patt for 2 years now and she loves going. She is doing so well in school and her grades have improved. Her scores were top in her class. she is above her levels in many of her subjects. If you need a caring and patient person to help your child with their studies she is a great person.
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.
