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.
Tony was fantastic with my son. Tony made my son feel more confident and eager to learn. He was able to break down the lessons for a first time player while giving the encouragement to want to learn more! Top Notch INSTRUCTOR!
My 88 year old aunt recommended Sophie when she heard that I was looking to take French lessons. She has been a student of hers for years. My girlfriend and I started taking lessons with Sophie about 18 months ago. We recently returned from a 10-day vacation in France and we were thrilled with how much our French had improved. We were able to speak to the locals in French and we both understood and were understood by them. Sophie is very reliable, punctual and is very reasonably priced. She makes the lessons fun and with enough variety that we always look forward to them.
My daughter has had one french lesson with Catherine. Catherine did her very best to accommodate us, being that we live so far from each other. She was engaging and friendly with my teenage daughter and helped put her at ease for her first lesson with her. She is very knowledgable and was able to help my daughter start remembering the things that she had forgotten and shared some new information as well. We look forward to continuing our lessons with Catherine.
Patricia has given English lessons to our 3 children, 2 hours a day, for 2 months in May and June 2015 in France. As French native speakers, the objective was to make them all feel at ease in English (spoken and written) in order to join an international English speaking school in September. Camille, 13 years old, had already some school knowledge of English, and Sarah, 11 years old, had very few knowledge of English. Despite of that, the 2 girls decided to take the lessons together and Patricia adapted very well to the level of each girl, making them feel as taking nearly private lessons, sharing perfectly her time between the 2 girls. She was able to use the strengths and weaknesses of each girl to build a team spirit to achieve each of them goal : good communication skills for interpersonal relations and a good written level to adapt to academic learnings. Cyrille, 7 years old, didn't have any knowledge of English and the objective was to get him used to listen and understand basic English. Again Patricia succeeded in this goal perfectly. Cyrille was very scared to start his first lesson and did not want to go, but after all he did not want the first lesson and all the others to stop ! Patricia was always extremely patient, enthusiastic, positive, constructive and fun all the time ! The children did theoretical exercices, as well as some practical ones, such as cooking or shopping, and of course lots of conversation. They all loved the lessons with her. Today, after one month of schooling in English, we can confirm that Patricias lessons were very helpful and allow our children to succeed in getting well-adapted to their new environment and working methods. Therefore, I highly recommend Patricia as a tutor as she is highly competent, efficient, and able to adapt to all type of levels and ages, from young boy to teenager.
I am in 6th grade, and I have been taking private German lessons from Frau Christine for 1 or 2 years now. I have to say that my German has improved tremendously just because of her. She teaches through culture and day to day conversations, making learning German comfortable. She, as a person, is someone who listens, understands and talks to you. At this moment, I am reading a chapter book, "Das Doppelte Lottchen" with Frau Christine. I also work in several workbooks when she assigns it. She is a very, very organized educator, and doesn't load and overwhelm students with the language, like other German American Schools have done to me. For the first time, I have been feeling like I will be fluent in German. During lessons with Frau Christine, I forget that I am in America. She magically leads you into a world where the grammar comes naturally. She has made me WANT to learn German. I recommend this amazing teacher for any young student, especially if they already know how to speak a little German.
Everything was wonderful and the people were really friendly and worked with me and tailored the lesson to my needs
Excellent Spanish classes, I will recommend it to friends. It helped me in speaking, writing and understanding Spanish. The teacher is great, responsive, patient and very flexible. I have learned so much Spanish since I started. The lessons are fun, diverse and interesting!
I have been told by my former pupils that I excite a high degree of interest in subjects such as grammar that are often dry and boring in their presentation. This is perhaps because as a pupil, I myself found them dry and boring.
My name is Stephen Riley, and I am a traveling music and English teacher. Along with my wife, Annelisa Riley, I have been working for the past two years to hone in on what makes the English language easy for some and hard for others. After working in China for a year teaching English to students ranging from age 1-12, Annelisa and I began dreaming and scheming of ways to improve the process of learning English while having a lot of fun. Both Annelisa and I have been deeply moved by music and involved in the creation of music from early in life. Now, we believe we have found a way of teaching that speaks for both us as teachers and you as students. Everyone loves music, and everyone needs to communicate to have long-term success. Our curriculum uses classic folk music and contemporary songs to bring the student deeper into the English language. By focusing on the poetic lyrics of folk music, we are able to bring the student a more compulsory understanding of how to form sentences and adequately express themselves. Then we begin working with the student on learning to play some of these songs, focusing on guitar chords, strumming patterns, and for the more experienced students, harmonica playing. Finally, we work with the student to create an original piece of music in English that they can be proud to call their own work of art. Riley School of American Folk Music is not just about learning to speak the English language. It is about learning to create.
I am originally from South America and have an education at the University of Washington as a romance language major. I enjoy helping others to learn Spanish using the Capretz Method. You learn the language as a child learns to talk. It is fun and efficient.
Just a soon-to-be high school graduate who is saving money for college through what I know best, which is giving lessons in Spanish, English, and guitar.

I have lived and taught English abroad in Costa Rica and Brazil, as well as traveled throughout Europe and South America. I am fluent in Spanish and Portuguese. For the past couple years, I have been teaching kids classes (as well as tutoring adults) anything from creative writing to art, Spanish and geography. I am a very enthusiastic and creative person, which helps me bring very unique and fun activities to class. I always accommodate my lessons based on the student's level and specific need or interest just like for example, if you need to learn English for business or work or perhaps you need to learn some conversational Spanish for traveling. Everyone is unique so I like to make all of my lessons unique as well. No matter what, we always have a good time!
