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.
With Stef - you couldn't ask for more from a French lesson. She was very helpful in understanding the perimeters of our group and helping us feel more comfortable with learning the language. Each lesson was well thought out and education. I highly recommended Stef when selecting a French language Instructor!
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.
I engaged in weekly French lessons with Luisa in April 2011 in preparation for a September trip to Paris. My goal was to be able to communicate enough to get by as well as make sure I had a good accent and didn't sound too much like an American. ;-) Anyway, I received several compliments on my accent and was able to express my thoughts easily as well as understand enough of what people were saying to make my trip that much more enjoyable. I'd highly recommend working with Luisa if you are dedicated to learning French or Spanish!
As a beginner in learning French, Pierre was everything I could have hoped for in a tutor. He excels in patience, expertise, and consistently keeping me on my toes with exercises and textbook materials in order to push me forward. Pierre was always on time to our sessions and never hesitated to stay over an hour to make sure I understood all of the concepts presented to me. I hope Pierre tutors in other languages because I wouldn't hesitate to sign up with him again! ...right after I master French of course!" Thank you so much for your help. -Farah Saleh
Patricia was kind about how difficult French was for me and really went above and beyond to make sure that I was prepared for my class exams, even finding additional exercises online. Her emphasis on building your basic conversational skills actually helped my overall French improve. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone.
I highly recommend Cecile. Learning French with her is a pleasure.
My company gives tours on electric bicycles. I had a large group coming from France. I hired Patricia to ride along and translate my information and stories into French. She was wonderful!! She made a special trip in advance to meet us and make sure she knew our location and to learn exactly what would be expected of her, even though I had already hired her by phone. On the day of our ride she was a gem. Very helpful. Patricia is friendly and fun and not at all shy about speaking to a group. She had no problem understanding my English. She is the kind of person who can see what needs to be done and does it. She was very helpful in translating instructions during training. She was perfect during the tour in the translation of stories into French. She helped a person who was having a problem with his bicycle and happily traded bicycles. The French tourists simply loved her and so did I. Patricia made the day extra special for our French visitors and made them feel comfortable. She was more than a translator, she was a team player. Tres magnifique! Merci Patricia, Barb Wittels Owner & Tour Manager Pedal...or Not Electric bike tours
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!

Hi! My name is Marion. I am French. I moved to LA for my acting career. I am fluent in English and I, myself, am still working on reducing my French accent; so I know how it works and how to learn that, step by step. I have done some design studies in school and some artistic ones (first, in applied arts in high school before my design degree, then acting, TV hosting and coaching). I have been a model for 10 years and traveled the world. I think communication is so important, and I love the idea of learning a new language and the culture, thoughts and habits that go with. I have always been very good in writing. I write and read a lot. I never do any spelling mistakes in French, and I am really good at it. I just love to see someone talk better and better in my language every day. It is motivating and a very good thing to me. I can help you achieve your goal. Marion
I dictate lessons in different languages, such as French, English and Spanish. The classes take place whether at my students' place or at mine with previous acknowledgement. I am very flexible and have respect to schedules. I'm also very interested in being the person who guides you to improve your learning.
