Lois has a great ability to adapt to the student's needs. I love her teaching methods, developed by her based in all her years of experience teaching english. I've experienced a really fast improvement with pronunciation, which was my number one concern. I've really enjoyed her classes and I totally recommend her!

We couldn't have asked for a better experience. For a kid who does not traditionally "get" mathematics, Jeff did a fantastic job helping him to grasp the concepts taught in his class, and went above and beyond in every way!

Sarah helped my son to pass his Algebra M03 class at Moorpark College after failing the first time. My son struggled with math in high school and generally has an aversion to the subject. We hired Sarah and he not only passed but earned a B grade! Sarah is very kind and considerate and cares about her students. We will be using her again.

My 10 year old didn't want to go to school anymore! He studies spanish at LEALA and it was really hard for him and also challenging, until he started taking classes with Hilda Rodino!!!! She not only helped him with his tests ( which he did amazing) but also gave him confidence and made spanish fun for him to study. Lucas started enjoying going to his spanish classes and he even improve his relationship with his classmates and teacher!!!! I can't say enough of how grateful i am for having Hilda!!! Lucas loves her and he went twice as week for an hour and in only 2 weeks we saw the change at school and also helped me at home as he stopped complaining about his spanish class. Thank you Hilda!!!!

My writing improved from being someone who had big ideas for tv and films to actually having a pragmatic plan writing those ideas into reality. From bi-weekly meetings we started with my premise line. Then as the months went by we worked on my beat sheet which was strengthened into a feature length screenplay I am working on right now. I was surprised at the independence and growth I gained from working with Amy. She would look at the beginning of the year with me via video conferencing and emails, listen to my goals (i.e. I want to build a screenwriting portfolio that consists of a tv spec, original pilot and a feature length screenplay) and she would break down the weeks with sizable writing exercises that would piece together my screenplay and tv script pieces. I feel great inspiration from watching movies and want to produce movies that move others as well..but sometimes you need a "coach" to help you get from Point A to Z. Starting a writing project can be daunting and it's difficult to "get your sneakers on, tie the laces and start running." I now feel empowered with the tools to produce my stories from conception to screen. I have already finished a tv spec, pilot, essays and working on a feature length screenplay. The main thing Amy has taught me as a writer is the balance between the artistic process as well as being successful in the industry. That honing the artistic process and building a strong body of work will attract the industry professionals that will want to work with me. She does a trustworthy job of moving both these processes simultaneously. Like most artists I juggle a lot. I have a day job, I am an actor who works on various shoots, takes classes and auditions for big opportunities all while working with Amy to realize my dream of becoming a show runner and director where screenwriting will be a vital tool. Amy has a gift for tailor making a program that fits the unique individual. Despite my very busy schedule, her efficient and tailor made syllabus has encouraged me to write regularly, little by little a day which has added up to a strong writing portfolio.

Level Up Academy

    He is a really outstanding teacher. His patience always let me feel very related in his classes. Because I am a International student, and my teachers never used English to teach students before, sometimes I can be very nervous and confused in what teachers say in America classes. But Earl really gives me confidences, which make me believe I can overcome the difficulties I met in my study. Moreover, he really impresses me when he teaches me SAT writing, due to the reason that he separates long sentences for me and tells me which different functions of which different parts of them; this method is very useful for International students such as me. However, few teachers use this method to teach students when they cannot understand the meanings of the long and difficult sentences. Honestly, he did really give me lots of help.

        I love reading a lot and I always bring my dictionary. I'm active in reciting in class and talks English every now and then. Now I am still looking further more in improving my skill in talking English even if I'm already good at it.

        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
