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.
My daughter has taken a few lessons with Carl, and she is very happy with his style of teaching. I hired Carl with the need to prepare my daughter for the SAT exam. Carl was extremely flexible in scheduling the tutoring sessions around my daughters schedule. I have enjoyed listening to Carl tutor my daughter greatly. He has a great sense of humor, and has a special method in teaching, which can just about help anyone in finding the answer and/or struggles that one is having in learning the English language properly. Each time that Carl arrives for the sessions, he is prepared and ready to tutor without wasting any time. Carl is a very knowledgeable and an experienced tutor, and I believe he has the best method in preparing for the SAT. As a bonus, he is very nice, and reasonably priced considering how much he is helping my daughter to prepare for her first life-changing exam. I would definitely use his services again, and would highly recommend him to anyone.
Really eye opening approach to learn language by feeling. It make sense and is more fun than the conventional way. Lois is a real gem for people with accents! Highly recommended.
I worked with Antonio to help refresh my limited knowledge of Italian and he accomplished the task wonderfully. He actually expanded my understanding of how the language works and showed me some great tips for remembering how sentences can be best structured. I also had a lot of fun with him during the lessons, which is very different from my past experiences with learning a new language. He is highly professional, very friendly, and pretty much designed my lessons to be challenging but not at all hard. As a matter of fact, I have extended my lessons for another couple of months since my progress has been remarkable compared to what I expected.
I chose private lessons versus some language school because I was hoping it will get me to learn faster and what I really need. And I was right. And the next good choice I made I chose Pablo to be my language teacher! I knew zero Spanish, but after the first lesson I already knew how to read, how to pronounce, basic expressions and numbers! After couple of classes I started creating sentences and was able to understand a little bit. What I like the most, he adjusts all the material based on my needs. There is no useless learning of words you might never ever use in real life. He teaches what you need and after couple of months I'm already able to understand and have a basic conversation with my clients. He is also flexible with time and location, which made it very convenient for me. But it's not only that Pablo is a good teacher he also has a great, interesting personality. He is a great motivator as well and always finds smth positive to say, to encourage, to make me believe I'm doing great! In my opinion it is very important when you are trying to learn smth new. He gets a feeling on how much he can push you and sometimes I get surprised myself of what I can say in Spanish already! So to sum everything, if you want to learn language in a friendly environment, your learning material to be adjusted to your personal needs and have a competent teacher who sees a potential in you, you will definitely not go wrong with Pablo.
I have been using Noelle for spanish lessons twice a week. I was a complete beginner. Noelle is extremely patient and a pleasure to deal with. She is very encouraging and has an extremely pleasant manner about her. She is very professional and it is readily apparent that she takes great pride in her work and cares very much that you learn the proper way. I would highly recommend her! Ron S
Very patient with new a student, very understanding. Very capable. The lessons are more than adequate.
She is a very good teacher. It is pleasant and interesting to speak with her. My sister is very happy with these English conversation lessons.
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.
Awesome teacher😀. We started out with lessons for my small children Elsa made learning so much fun for them with games and post-it's throughout the house. My children learned quickly and we fluent before they took Spanish in school. So impressed with Elsa I later hired Elsa to teach my husband and I Spanish. Elsa's approach helped us also learn quickly. We love her she is kind, patient and so much fun. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn Spanish. Wally P
I have been learning Korean for over a year with another private tutor before Suebeet. While my previous tutor helped lay the foundation for my Korean language skills, Suebeet has really brought out a new level of speaking from me that I had not anticipated being able to accomplish. She has a really good way of explaining things. She makes sure to explain both fundamental learning as well as modern abbreviations and slang so that when we speak to Korean speakers our age, we won't sound out of date or weird. :) I hope to continue taking classes with Suebeet. :)
Miss Marguerite is a great piano teacher. She approaches her music lessons through a variety of techniques and methods that always keeps our daughter engaged. She teaches her music theory, music appreciation, rhythm, play by ear and the ability to read music. She differentiates the needs of each of her students and taps into their styles and preferences. Our daughter has learned a lot under her tutelage.
Leah is an incredibly gifted Spanish tutor! I've been meeting with her on a weekly basis for a month now and am learning a lot through her lessons. She works with your schedule and setting up a meeting time and place was easy and stress free! She always come early and prepared, is extremely patient, and does a great job of assessing where you're at and where you need help most. I am at a beginner level but she would be great with advanced learners as well!
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.
Awesome tutor! Real Deal. She's kind and explains everything really well. You will be learning the language from a true frenchie.
Alex went above and beyond to help me succeed in my French class. I didn't know how to put together sentences before him, let alone speak with the proper accent. He was so patient with me and made me a better French writer. I stepped away from a super American accent to a far more French one. He did this through several different pronunciation exercises and even communicated with me in full French at the end of our lessons and would challenge me to try to speak full French back. I felt like I was living in Paris! He is so sweet and even provided me with insights about being a true parisienne for when I study abroad there or work there in the future. Learning French is my passion, and he made that passion come alive. I am truly so grateful to him, and now we have hour long phone calls once a week in French to ensure that I don't lose what I have learned from him. He is detail oriented, as well as an exceptional teacher, and even more interesting person. He has lived all around the world, and always has fascinating stories to tell! I would 100000% recommend him as a tutor. You will not be disappointed!
Marcelo is a native Spanish speaker, has lived in Pasadena for many years, and was an architect before he retired. He is a very pleasant person, and very easy to talk to. He is very flexible and non-dogmatic in his approach to teaching Spanish, and adapts his teaching style to his students' preferences. In our sessions we work through a Spanish language text book and do reading, writing and speaking exercises. As I have become more proficient, our lessons have focused more on conversation, which I enjoy. Among other things, Marcelo is an interesting person with a wealth of experiences, and conversations with him are always interesting. While not fluent, I have gotten to the point where I feel relatively confident in carrying on a basic conversation. Marcel is completely reliable...he never misses a scheduled session, and he is extremely punctual.
I always enjoy our French lessons!
Great skills to teach. Friendly way to communicate. Perfect sence of humor. Strongly recommended. Rouben Sekoyan, Paralegal.
