It was nice working with Laurel. She helped me to improve my accent in English. I warmly recommend her to people who want to be more fluent.
Nando gives me exactly what I need and want. We discuss, in Italian, subjects that interest me. He provides me with visuals and also recordings so that I can hear other Italian accents. Nando is a patient, knowledgeable instructor and I am extremely satisfied with his teaching techniques. He encourages and challenges me. He's the best!
I highly recommend Arjun to anyone from business professionals to students! I've noticed a lot of improvement in the way I communicate with others in my personal, school, and most importantly business life since I've had the chance to work with Arjun. I'm a little over ten sessions now and I plan to continue working with him because he's incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about what he does. I originally contacted Arjun to improve my public speaking and business communication skills. As time progressed, Arjun was able to mold his lesson plans into something that would benefit my activities better - including cross-cultural training, pageant speeches, on-stage presence skills, and much much more! (I am a pageant title holder so if you're planning in competing in a pageant or am in one already, I suggest looking for a speech coach to enhance your skills!) Arjun always tries his best to accommodate to my busy schedule and is wonderful to work with. I think the most important thing to look for in a speech coach/business consultant is their personality and patience with your time. Although we schedule our meetings according to an hourly basis (However I purchased the monthly package,) I never feel rushed and am always left feeling like I'm one far step further than I was the last time we met. Thank you Arjun!
I'm really happy to have met Toni and I recommend her to anybody who wants to improve their English. Toni is passionate about teaching and she is caring, smart, creative, and very professional. Toni helped me to speak with greater confidence: I now have a better understanding of English and my pronounciation is better (I will never stop thanking her for the patience with my Italian accent! I come from Milan!). In her class she spends time on grammar, reading, writing and pronunciation and she always found the best way to teach according to my needs and requirements. Lessons with her have always been creative and engaging and so it's easier to learn! I had tried other teachers before but have always been disappointed. Toni also gave me homework and sent me several interesting articles (and videos) in tune with my interests. She gave me valuable information on places to visit in Berkeley and San Francisco and she pointed out initiatives that have been useful for me to feel a little more at home in this new country. I am very grateful to Toni and I will continue working with her to improve my English.
I posted here that need some help on math since I'm an International new student here in USA, and Lorraine came to me from Oakland to San Jose. My skills on math are good but my first language is Arabic so I was confused on English, also I forgot many things since I always use a calculate on any thing on math. I asked Lorraine to help me on my ELM exam that will be next 2 weeks and I hope that I will do well. Lorraine understood what I need exactly and brought to me some helpful papers and they were really good. When we started I thought that my skills are week and I cant remember many thing, and the exam will be with No calculators so Lorraine started with me from the begging to help me remember everything in easy way that will let me remember it on my test. By this time I'm working on the papers and preparing myself until my test on the next 2 weeks.
I've been taking lessons from Scott for years. He is a very enthusiastic and patient teacher. If you're looking for someone to help you polish your conversational skills or improve your accent, I think he would be a good candidate
I highly recommend Sharon Turnoy to do work that is fast, that is accurate, and that goes beyond your expectations .I hired Sharon to help me with something I thought would be only a little proofreading assignment. I was working on a research project about Classical Music of the 20th Century and hired her to proofread it. At the last minute, I realized I wasn't going to be able to meet my very tight deadline on the research itself, so I didn't have everything done yet for her to proofread. I asked her if she could possibly help me with some of the research because I was in a bind. Even though she had something else planned during that time, she canceled her plans and said yes. Her help was invaluable. First, she figured out a faster way to do the research than I had come up with so that I could meet my short deadline. Then, not only did she supply that new research, but she also went beyond just proofreading the research I had done (spelling, grammar, etc.) and checked it for accuracy, too. It's a good thing she did. She found and corrected numerous errors. With the errors she corrected and the new research she supplied, she easily raised my grade on this project from a "D" or an "F" to an "A." And all of this was done well within my deadline. In fact, she put in extra time over and above what she had originally committed to, foregoing her own plans, so I would have an excellent project to submit. I recommend her without reservation and would welcome the opportunity to work with her again.
Leigh was my excellent English teacher and she still is even after my graduation. Because Leigh has international experiences and has taught English to international students, she is used to so many types of accents, nationalities and cultural differences. That's what makes Leigh a great English teacher. My personal experiences with her lesson was to correct my pronunciation. She helped me to make proper sound to pronounce words and also taught me the importance of rhythm and flow when you speak. I highly recommend to take Leigh's lesson. You won't regret!
Very Committed and helpful teacher. Mrs.Brown is very knowledgeable. We had different subjects to talk about in each meeting. She helped me not just the grammar, accent reduction and also the American culture etc... I enjoyed her English tutoring.
I am very happy to recommend Veronica for anyone looking to improve their American English accent and pronunciation. She is very smart, organized, professional, creative, and supportive. Ever since I started taking lessons with her, my confidence skyrocketed and I gained lots of practical knowledge to improve my American English accent and pronunciation.
I've been taking personal language tutorial from Daniel for more than a year. His methods specifically tackle areas where I could improve most: grammar, idioms and pronunciation. His feedback is always specific, direct and fruitful. Thanks to his efforts, I reduced my accent and my speech became much more fluent.
