I have been taking lessons from Nando for over a year now and really love the flexibility his lessons provide. He is so willing to help accommodate your schedule. His lessons are a good reminder to keep up with my learning and speaking Spanish. Since I only take 1 lesson a week, I have to do additional learning on my own (which everyone should do anyway) but I like the lessons so much that I just renewed!

I attended to English lessons with Toni and she is a very reliable teacher. I improved my spoken and reading English. On top of providing useful teaching material, she brought a great support during a period of stressful interviews. Aside of having very good English lessons, you will have a good time in taking courses with Toni.

Scott has been helping me with the language for almost a year now. I'm a native Russian speaker and make a lot of "classic" Russian pronunciation mistakes. Scott does a great job at helping me to eliminate them. Scott is also a professional RU-EN translator, and this comes in surprisingly handy in our lessons. Often, if there's a Russian idiom I'd like to use in English, Scott comes up with a nice translation for me. Finally, since cultures in Russia and US differ and I moved only a few years ago, it's not always obvious to me why certain things are the way they are here. Scott lived in a Russian-speaking country for quite some time and he really understands both mentalities. His first-hand experience is really valuable for someone like me, and Scott is always happy to answer questions.

Anish was excellent at walking through some of the tougher GRE concepts with me, ensuring I was prepared for all of the different types of questions on the exam. I am much more comfortable and confident in tackling the material after working with him.

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.

Francesca is extremely patient and very good with kids. She engaged my very hyper active son and has been a huge part of getting him ready for first grade reading and comprehension. She was always on time, always upbeat and he enjoyed his summer lessons a great deal. I highly recommend her.

    Sylvia is tutoring my daughters in Spanish. They never had Spanish before, and when they moved to a new school, the level of Spanish is very advance for someone who never had the lessons. Sylvia works with them in getting them up to speed. In a short time, both my children had become comfortable in following the lesson at school, and I have noticed that both of them have made quite significant improvements. My oldest daughter tells me that once she is comfortable with her Spanish, she wants to start French with Sylvia. I am sure that if either of my kids need tutoring in Math, Sylvia would be the one we go to. If your child or children need extra help in academic, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you call Sylvia. My children are very happy with how she teaches. Sylvia is also opens to different approaches in teaching. If my kids want more challenge, all they have to do is tell Sylvia and she will give them challenging lessons.

      In the beginning, I was really afraid of talking to others in English because I know that I can’t speak English well. However, after some lessons, I become more and more confident and fell in love with the lessons. I tried speaking to others and they answered me. This greatly encouraged me.

      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.

      About

      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.
